August 2017: That went by fast, storing figures in box.

TyjosAzari2 mies. temuAsk MFC
Well I have taken care of picking up the main things I wanted for collecting Star Wars this month and it looks like I won't be picking up the 2 Anime figures that I was thinking about since I spent a bit on Star Wars over the last few days and it's back to getting the old self restraint in place to keep from doing much for the last part of this month.


Feels like I haven't spent this much in a long time on things since I've been picking up a few Star Wars vehicles and figures so now I don't feel like looking at anything Anime related since I'll have to deal with the old thing of finding space for new stuff.

Good thing most of what I picked up this week is new in package and that can be stored pretty easy till I decide to open them.

I don't feel like collecting Anime figures for a while and I'm not watching a lot of Anime at the moment so that makes it easy to get away from the expensive stuff but collecting Star Wars has gotten expensive since I'm looking backwards at the older toys from the Star Wars series [Power of the Jedi, Revenge of the Sith, Clone Wars,SAGA Series, 30th Anniversary] and those have become a little bit expensive on the Aftermarket and it's added up fast.

I just spent $80 on the Star Wars Clone Wars TRU Exclusive Rise of Boba Fett Set that was loose with no figures to get the Slave 1 and Mace Windu Jedi Starfighter and earlier dropped $60 on a Power of the Jedi TIE Interceptor that's new in package so doing those two things took a chunk out of my budget for the month and it's back to waiting at least another few days before doing anything else.

What started all of this was Watching Star Wars and some of the Clone Wars series since it's one of the series I still like and with there being so many items out there to look at I forgot about looking at Anime this month.

First thing I had to get was the Toys R Us Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace Ring, got one that's sealed in package so I may leave it in package this time and store it for a while.




Feels like the month has passed by quickly since the last few days were spent hunting Star Wars vehicles and items and I didn't notice the time passing by since it was back to doing what I used to do with collecting a while ago.

Already started the month off with spending a good bit on Obi-Wan Kenobi's Lightsaber and picked up a Clone Wars Y-Wing Fighter and a few other things so I'm dealing with the old thing of every thing adding up fast.

Still considering getting one last saber for the collection but these things cost around $80-$150 so it's one of those things that I'd have to pick up one light saber a month since I don't like spending that much on a single item.



Managed to secure a Y-Wing Gold Leader version from my friend that I trade with so that helped get me sucked back into collecting Star Wars for a short while.



It feels GOOD to be back to collecting one of my favorite toy lines, ended up getting a good piece for the Star Wars collection and I may end up keeping it in package since the Star Wars Unleashed Slave Leia figure is a rarity plus it's packaging is in good condition.

Still trying to figure out where I am going to display a lot of new things but It will be one of those months where one will deal with the temptation to open the items that are Sealed in package, I want to try to keep things sealed but that might not work out.


There are still a lot of things I'd like to get but at the rate of what's been spent this month it's time to slow it down again.



Originally I didn't have much planned for this month but that changed quickly once I started watching the Star Wars movies again.

So here are some questions:

Do you keep your figures in their package till you have space to display them?

Do you have a favorite series to collect?

Do you deal with the constant issue of there being a lot of things that you want but don't have the space to display them?

KingSabah (2 mies. temu) #24601712After moving to our new house, I gained a new display area outside of my single DETOLF for my figurines, which freed up some clutter in the display case. However, I REALLY wanna cut back on collecting and stick to Fate/ for now (given all the FGO merch, my collection REALLY is becoming Fate/ only haha). Though I still have a figure or two outside of the series I'm hoping to pickup (the Ryuuko Nendoroid, Persona 5 figma(s), some Love Live! Nendos) - I'd like to keep those in the package until I find a good home for them.
I just receieved ITEM #464612 and ITEM #455088 recently, I couldn't hold back from opening them so I made space on my bookshelf area, good thing Nendos are relatively small. I admire your tenacity in restricting your collection thus far, and I hope you can maintain your goals throughout the year! It's always fun reading your posts, it makes me take a step back and consider my collection (since I usually add as I go, makes it easier to think about afterwards, heh.)


I see that a lot of collectors here on MFC collect Nendos and I can understand how addicting those can get, Star Wars is one of the series that's addicting to me that leads to getting a LOT all at once and when I get a good looking vehicle or figure I can't resist opening it since I love the large Star Wars vehicles since they turn into Playsets and that's one of my weakness with certain toy lines at times.

I have to restrict my collecting a lot due to the fact I go through so much money at times when I'm fixated on a series and dealing with a large stack of stuff with no place to display it becomes a usual annoyance so I have to keep myself focused on that so I can relax and continue to enjoy collecting.

Collecting is no fun when you can't display things and end up with stacks of stuff you want to open but you can't because you don't have space for them.

I'm happy I avoided the Fate Craze, looking at how much that is costing other collectors makes me glad that for the price of one of those scales I could get another lightsaber for the collection or a TON of Star Wars items and figures so I'm happy to have at least 3 or 4 Fate figures in the collection.

Also, space is always an issue, so much stuff so little space....='3


Space will always be an issue with me till I move out, I just have to keep that in mind before I look at another figure and I don't have space in my display cases for any more Anime figures so now it's dealing with making sure my bookshelves don't get filled up too fast.
