Hey everyone!

How is everyone doing? I hope everyone is doing well!

Welcome to Dec loot!
it ended up being bigger than expected due to some delays and gifts...
I’m still waiting for few more items from my December order, but I won’t get them until mid-January, so I’ll just add them to my next post.

Here is the overview of all the figures that I got:

As usual, I’ll start with smaller figures.

I really like Rin in this outfit. Too bad that there is still no further news regarding the scale, so I’ll happily settle with this for now.

ITEM #693374
I bought her purely for the aesthetic... Kagura is one the prettiest nendoroid I’ve ever seen.

ITEM #715856
Tanaka is my favorite character in Haikyuu, so of course I had to get him.

ITEM #296454
Since GSC announce his re-release, I also bought him to display together with Tanaka.

I opted for the LED base because I thought it looks really cool!
She attaches to the base through magnet and it’s a pretty weak magnet, so she’s a bit wobbly. Other than that, she turns out great!

After long delays, Shiro is finally here!
So excited to finally have her in my collection. Her hair looks amazing. It was well worth the wait.

ITEM #464748
This is one of my most anticipated figure of the year because it's everything that I love combine into one. I love the idol aesthetic, I love Nero, I love the pose and I love the couch. I think Nero looks stunning in this version and I'm glad that I got her.


Moving on to another version of Nero ITEM #549441

This is a gift from Jessica (coolkirby).
She is my first 1/6, so she does have a notable presence in my display. I love that she’s the first thing I notice when I look at my Kimono shelf now.


Last figure on this loot is also another Christmas gift...
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/01/01/2126183.jpeg ITEM #501857
She is given to me by my best friend.
I wanted to buy her since last year, but never bit the bullet for some reason… and I must have mentioned her to my friend somehow…
I feel so spoiled when she gave me this…


And that's all the figures that I got in December!


Thoughts on 2018

Since it's the start of the new year, I thought it would be nice to reflect on 2018.

For me, 2018 has been a great year for collecting, but not so great in terms of real life... There were a lot of family issues and some workplace issues as well, so it was a pretty stressful year for me. I was able to distract myself with pretty plastics though, so it doesn't end up being the worst year ever.

Instead of going into details about the negatives, I'm just going to highlight the positives of 2018 in this article.

I started collecting in Oct 2017, so I celebrate my first year of collecting few months ago. I went a bit crazy during the first half of 2018 with all the impulse purchases and all… knowing that this couldn't go on forever, I forced myself to learn to have better self-control and I was able to pace myself better, so that's a good improvement ^^

During the year, I was able to meet lots of wonderful collectors in MFC, discord and even in real life. As I talked with them, I was able to learn more and appreciate other’s perspective and it makes me want to start changing the way I conduct myself.

It started with me becoming more open by sharing my passion… and ultimately becoming more open about personal stuff to build a relationship with others…

I used to be very afraid of having a conversation with others because I'm just very awkward with social interactions, i don't even know why...
I am still very shy and awkward, but I can hold a conversation just fine now… even with a stranger (it might not seem much, but it’s something that I can’t do back then).

Figure collecting has also brought more colours in my life I would say... because there will always be something new, it keeps me looking forward to what's going to happen next. When life gets difficult, I think having something that makes you look forward to the future is a great thing. It really makes me happy despite all the bad things that happen in 2018.

Conclusion: I'm glad I got into figure collecting XD

Hopefully, 2019 will be a better year for all of us... ^^

Happy New Year everyone!

Wow, the LED base on ITEM #582604 looks so cool! I hadn't really paid that much attention to that feature, but the lighting really adds a lot to the figure.
