Limited figures obsessionLimited figures obsession

I was wondering if anyone has this same feeling?

Whenever I have something very exclusive/limited (so referring to only XXX made worldwide, not exclusives like native with a limited order time)
I feel like it is extra special! Andi. Cant stop hunting this item :) wouldnt give up until i find it (obsession)

For example, louise white bustier I own. Only 700 worldwide being made, gives such an awesome feeling :D i did pay quite the amount (140 euro including shipping unopened and new) but well spend.
It is my no 1 favorite figure

Whenever it is a "regular" figure im not easily spending 140 euro...
With the seven sin girls i didnt felt like spending such amounts.. Actually with anything above 100 euro i start to think

But with for example noel vermillion from vertex, wonderfes exclusive im willing to spend 140 euros (if she wont cost even more) cause only 50 were made worldwide and therefore it rlly tempts me!

Just recently i ordered pangYa lucia midnight lagoon ver. For only 3k opened! Still waiting for confirmation mail. What pulled the trigger? Cause only 300 were made! And doesnt pop up on manda often i believe only once or twice before this one and more expensive!
(Ofc the other trigger, her being from my top 10 fav game is a big plus lol)

And in the past this was one of the hardest to find figures, still cant find her anywhere anymore and i got freaking lucky buying her from amiami PO due to her rusty chain she was veeery cheap:
U
ITEM #72838

I felt so extatic when i finally obtained her?

Whenever the quality is less good on a "regular" figure im also very bothered by the paintjob, with such limited ones i have it even worse o.o

I know this might not be really interesting but i felt like posting it anyways. It is a strange part of me :) being obsessed with limited figures

I do still maintain my budget, i dont easily spend over 140 euros, maybe some euros but not much more

I was wondering if you got a special limited figure that caught your eye or heart? :D

And do you own it now? Or still hunting?

What price do you hope to obtain her/him for? Do you have a special budget for it or youre willing to spend anyways?

Feel free to link it :D

alazif03 (4 l. temu) #2376122Hi!
I guess I can say the same because I like having exclusive/limited figures or items. It makes me feel like my collection is special and, somehow, so I am. Even though I try to be less impulsive with my purchases, I must confess I have the tendency to be weaker when it comes to these kind of goods or figures.
I own two figures which are limited to 500 pieces: ITEM #41112 and ITEM #27506. For Light, I paid more than 200€ in France (I don't remember exactly) but it was a love at first sight! I knew he was limited to 500 pieces and that convinced me to pay that much for him.
And yes, I can be really obsessed sometimes. It happened for example when I was looking for more E2 original figures : ITEM #9863, ITEM #53519 or ITEM #76879. Though I don't regret after purchasing, I think I wouldn't have bought some pieces of my collection or at least not for the same price if they weren't exclusives/limited.


Funny exactly thpse figures, t different color.. I paid like 256 euros for them thanks to customs (was still a starter plus they were an amiami exclusive set only.. So i couldnt buy it from biginjap etc) i regret it forever.. I would never ever spend such amounts :( shouldve let it shipped back to amiami when customs charged me over 55 euros o.O im not sure which amount exactly but it was high and no one wishes to buy them from me eventho i kept them unopened..
Wouldve rather bought the WF noel instead >.<

Im not impulsive tho i do need to actually like the character and i dont buy for it being exclusive or limited i just simply love it as in an extra special feeling if it does happen to be limited xP like i love all my louises but e white bustier feels extra special

But those two.. Dissapointed me and i dont feel attachment to them and they dont fit in anywhere

Light is indeed nice plus hard to find nowadays!

I don't own any limited figure with a known number of pieces, but I do own several goods in that category. Most of them are telephone cards, as that's one of the main things I collect.


Telephone cards I own, limited to:

* 300 pieces: ITEM #251601
* 500 pieces: ITEM #192044, ITEM #204703, all the telephone cards (and associated pins) I own in that product line ENCYCLOPEDIA #58714

Other goods I own, limited to:

* 500 pieces: ITEM #218798
* 600 pieces: ITEM #217637


And there are several limited figures and items with a known number of pieces I'd like to own!
Just in my "Highest priority Holy Grails" list LIST #33565, you can spot:

* ITEM #225147, ITEM #225149, ITEM #183392, and ITEM #183392 (limited to 1000 pieces each, those are my Holiest Grails for my Mitsumete Knight collection)
* ITEM #192013, ITEM #192015, ITEM #192052, ITEM #192053, and ITEM #192018 (and their associated pins; limited to 500 pieces each)
* ITEM #251600 (limited to 300 pieces)

And then there's this whole set of polystone Tokimeki Memorial 2 figures LIST #987 I'd love to get, but being limited to 100 pieces means it's unlikely I'll get it in the near future (there were about 6 sets of them on auction at YAJ during this summer -and it's thanks to that I was able to get their JAN code for MFC's database- but all of them were sold for high prices. Plus the shipping price would have been a nightmare...)


As for my opinion of limited stuff... I do like collecting them, but honestly, the most important is that I really wanted the item for what it is, not just for its rarity value. For example, ITEM #251601 may be the rarest item in my collection as for now, but I wanted it first and foremost because Saki Nijino is my fave Tokimemo 1 character and because I love the card's design. :p

I'm really into the Tsume HQS when it comes to limited figures.

These are the ones I have:
ITEM #81194 #108
ITEM #115294 #67
ITEM #212896 (ordered)

They are 1/6 scale, made of solid resin and goes between 240-369 euros. I wouldn't pay that much for a lower scale figures, unless they are of my favorite characters.

I also ordered Devilmura from aniplex ITEM #198394
which I believe will go for quite a price in the after market considering the popularity of the show.

Having a limited exclusive figure gives me somewhat a sense of accomplishment but my true joy lies in color contrast and matching displays. Creating the perfect setup according to my awfully picky taste is my pride.

To be honest, since I started collecting figures just one year ago, I find the "limited+exclusive" tag to be more annoying than rewarding. I just want the damn figure, exclusive or not, lol.

Chloe-tsundere (4 l. temu) #2371131Not only the accesoiry btw, her face is different too. The limited one is smiling ^^ way more cheeky and cute <3 and her arm has a different pose as well :)
Yeah it makes it feel extra special and you just tempted me with that haruhi X_X haha
I joined that group quite a while ago x3 but thanks :D
And it doesnt say limited to XXX tho so do you know how many were made?

Chloe-tsundere (4 l. temu) #2371499Uhm.. Those are exclusives and not limited to XXX pieces ;) limited is different than exclusive.
Limited is only a certain amount being made for order and exclusive is just that it is only sold in the manufacturers store (and proxy stores ofc like BiJ and NY) but theyre usually easier obtainable just the value gues up with exclusives


Guess you're right. Then the only I can think off are The Skull Kid and Wolf Link & Midna by F4F.
But those are very rare and very expensive, so I don't know if I'll ever get those.

Yoruno (4 l. temu) #2371117Ah, welcome to the Love for the Limited club CLUB #710. I absolutely understand you. Limited items make you 1) hunt, 2) feel like the Chosen one - even when they're actually worse than the regular version. My example: ITEM #2822 is the limited version of ITEM #2742. The regular ver. has a bag, the limited ver. doesn't. What makes it so special, the absence of an accessory? Yet I bought it and was proud for a long time.

Not only the accesoiry btw, her face is different too. The limited one is smiling ^^ way more cheeky and cute <3 and her arm has a different pose as well :)
