I’ve been feeling rather uninspired with posts as of late, so I thought now would be a good time to introduce some variety. Having figures is always exciting, but what is sometimes just as fun is dreaming about what you would like to own. Of course being greedy or unappreciative of what you do have is never good, but this is a blog with a lot about collecting, so it can’t hurt to share our dreams every once in a while! So today I will be sharing my own wish list and talking about just what it is that has attracted me to each particular item. In addition to must have items, I will also include things that I am intrigued by, but just have not decided to pursue yet.
figma Insane Black Rock Shooter
Should I have to explain? Just look at her! With weathered metal, spikes, chains, and skin pale as a bleached lily, Insane BRS shows off one of Huke’s coolest designs. She is one of those characters I’d always halfheartedly hoped would be made into a figma, but never truly believed would be made. I would have purchased her long ago were it not for the words, “Limited Blu Ray bundle” which are the bane of any collector’s existence. I intend to track her down(preferably preowned and blu ray free), but that day has not yet come.
nendoroid Miku Hatsune: yukata ver.
What’s better than a tiny Miku with hair buns and a yukata? Nothing!
I already loved this Miku for her cute hair and outfit, but those adorable faces just seal the deal. Sadly, she was a GSC shop exclusive and came out before I considered buying nendoroids again, so Miku and I have yet to be united.
We’ve waited so long for any news on Archer. And after a reveal of his new sculpt, we’re waiting again. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time since there is apparently a new Fate anime in the works, so whenever Archer comes out, I’ll be sure to introduce him to the Sabers!
figma Mikasa Ackerman
Mikasa shouldn’t be on my wish list; she should be on my ordered list along with all the other things I’ve preordered. Except I can’t preorder her because her preorders sold out like lightning! Mikasa is still available on GSC’s shop, but that will be my last resort since I’d rather not pay full price even if it includes a fancy di;stage. In the mean time, all I can do it add my figinstock notification and wait.
figma Mato Kuroi
Mato is one of my most wanted figmas. She may be a simple school girl with simple accessories, but that face, that glorious face boosts her near the top of my list. I’ve wanted her since she was announced, but she just had to be a Wonderfestival exclusive, and since this was before the days on GSC’s international shop, I was out of luck. And now that I could get her, I have other priorities. One day, Mato!
figma Saber Extra
Part of my quest to own ever Saber figma, but still a beautiful figma even without this quest. I especially love her long ladylike eyelashes. She was originally bundled with the limited edition of Fate/Extra.
nendoroid Maiko Madoka Kaname
Madoka dressed as a maiko. Out of character? A little. Another example of GSC’s milking? Maybe. But cute anyway? Oh yes! As soon as I saw her, I squealed, and seeing that the scaled figure failed to enchant me, this is my only way to own a figure of this little cutie. She was available on GSC’s shop, but since I’m trying to order only what’s necessary right now, I deemed it better to wait and find her later.
figma Racing Miku 2012
I have the feeling that I am part of a minority with this, but Racing Miku 2012 is my favorite of all the Racing Mikus. I love how the stubby almost chibi look of the illustration was transferred into figure form, and she just looks so cute and bubbly. I could see her in an oversized jacket trying to boss the racers around.
figma Saber Alter
Although not the moe beach queen I undoubtedly love, figma Saber Alter is on my list just for looking cool. I hope that by the time I do get her, I’m able to create a scene truly worthy of her darkened demeanor.
figma Ui Hirasawa
Ui is not high on my list, and I’ve even contemplated removing her, but she’s cute enough that I’ve just never been able to do so. Also, her price has dropped enough that picking up Ui is not much of a sacrifice.
figma Rin Kagamine
Those who read Pokemon Comics would know that I love Len Kagamine, yet his sister has managed to elude me. This is largely due to her aftermarket prices being on the upper end without a rerelease of any kind in sight(and I like Len more >_>). I’m still hoping for updated figmas of the twins, but even if that happens, I’d still like to get the original for Len.
figmas Yomi Isayama and Kagura Tsuchimiya
Yomi and Kagura are also on the lower end of my list, but I’d still like to have them since I enjoyed Gai Rei Zero and these two were announced right around when I started figma collecting. They have also risen in price on the aftermarket.
nendoroid Miku Hatsune Natsu Tsubaki yukata ver.
A red yukata with yet another awesome face? Of course I want her! Even without the bun hair of the first yukata Miku, I still like her and think her accessories are decent. I opted to wait until release to pursue this Miku.
figma Adult Mikuru
Haruhi was my first real anime, and Mikuru has always been my favorite character. Not only is Adult Mikuru pretty, the special feature in her shirt would make her a worthy candidate for some silly pictures.
figma Nodoka Manabe
Like Ui, Nodoka is low on my list, but I think she is still worth getting. And who doesn’t like tiny cop hats(except tiny robbers)?
figma Miyuki Takara summer ver.
I gave up on collecting the Lucky Star girls a while back, but seeing that I already have both versions of Tsukasa and only winter Mikyuki, I’d like for Miyuki to not be outnumbered.
figma Racing Miku 2013
Racing Miku 2013 is my second favorite Racing Miku! She was available as part of Goodsmile Racing’s sponsorship package, but because immediate payment is required, I was not able to preorder one. I hope to have a racing trio one day!
Chariot has not been sculpted yet, but there’s a very good chance I will be getting her since I love Chariot’s design. I hope she comes with macaroons!
figma Mika Jougasaki
I was able to resist Anzu, Rin, and Mika’s sister Rika, but I really do love Mika! She may not be a priority, but this is one figma that I definitely wouldn’t mind owning! I think her eyes are my favorite thing about her.
Max Factory’s Kureha Touka
Kureha was probably the first scaled figure I ever wanted. Between her delicate face and that amazing outfit, I’ve always loved her. Sadly, I’m not the only one as she is very expensive on the aftermarket. And every time I find one to buy, something gets in the way. Sorry, Kureha.
Goodsmile Company’s Tsukihi Araragi
Tsukihi has not only a beautifully colored kimono and diorama base, she’s also sporting my favorite sideways glances! I’d love to have her one day even if shipping will be a killer.
Morgiana by Megahouse
Even before watching Magi: Labyrinth of Magic, I was attracted to this figure. And now after having watched it, I’m even more excited about her! Her outfit is light and flowing, and her pose is full of so much energy. Morgiana has reminded me of what I like in a scaled figure, and after seeing her, I may very well abandon my kimono only rule and just trust in what I like.
Pureneemo Alisa Nostalgic Story Collection, Commemorative version
If this doll looks familiar, it’s because she’s the limited version of my Kagura! This version is what initially attracted me to the doll, but I gave up on her and came to love the standard blonde version instead. Still, I do think she’s very pretty with that gentle pink hair and white dress, so if I ever got the chance to have her, I just might!
Pureneemo Chiika Komorebimori no Dobutsutati ♪, Squirrel ver.
I was confident that no other Pureneemos would get my attention, and then Azone just had to introduce their new mori series. Everything is so cute >_
Pureneemo Raili Komorebimori no Dobutsutati ♪, Bambi ver.
In the mori series, each girl is a different animal. Raili is a fawn, and I think she suits that roll just perfectly! What I like about Raili is her light wavy hair, wide eyes, and innocent blue dress. The mori girls are killing me *_*. I even have names for the ones I want…
Nanoricchi VC Kirito
Apparently this is a new chibi action figure series that Griffon is starting(why not?). I have little belief in Griffon, but if it’s Kirito, I might as well keep an eye on it.
That wraps up my wish list! Does your list have anything in common? Or maybe what you want is entirely different. Perhaps there’s even something that you thought would be on my list but isn’t. If so, then don’t hesitate to give your own collection aspirations a shout out!
