    gwendal738-2 (Hace 2 meses) #21624418If Akuma Homura ever popped up anywhere that isn't Mandarake (for some reason I just can't use that site), I'm getting her no matter what. She is the one holy grail that I have and I regret not pre-ordering her when she came out a few years ago. T^T

    Rejean235 (Hace 4 meses) #20084895Wow, 236 votes when I added mine, impressive for a blog.
    Anyone has fr.myfigurecoll... for sale, I've been looking for her since 2009?
    Assuming it has been exactly 8 years, 2922 days (2 leap years), then 0 < p < 0.00003422. I'm prepared to pay just about anything for her but I never saw her for sale; I'm assuming p ≠ 0 since she exist. I actively looked for her a few years ago but I now just have her as passive search. I even sent PMs to the 5 person having her in MFC about 6 years ago, none wanted to get rid of her. No one since then joined MFC indicating they owned her.
    I do have patience.


    Well, since the waiting time X follows a geometric distribution, the kicker is that the standard deviation of X is (1-p)^.5/p, which approaches 1/p as p -> 0. Thus, even a waiting time of 3/p wouldn't even really be an outlier. For example, for a not impossibly rare figure (probability 1/1000 of it showing up on any given day), 50 simulated waiting times could be:

    Rweb:> rgeom(50, prob=.001)
    [1] 38 3619 523 2436 3482 969 852 442 1698 256 339 1498 335 4858 2604
    [16] 327 569 18 863 1714 919 1221 2185 1690 87 87 577 3040 881 387
    [31] 1040 1647 143 1435 543 627 643 370 589 972 1109 386 1057 474 776
    [46] 2053 80 711 476 270

    One lucky collector in our simulation waits only 18 days to find their grail and one poor bastard waits for more than 13 years! The geometric distribution is a real b**** sometimes :).

    victorviper (Hace 4 meses) #20004339...if a figure will be available for purchase on any given day with probability p not equal to zero, then with probability 1 it will eventually be available again in the future and in fact the expected waiting time for the figure is 1/p days...
    Patience is a virtue after all.
    Assuming it has been exactly 8 years, 2922 days (2 leap years), then 0 < p < 0.00003422. I'm prepared to pay just about anything for her but I never saw her for sale; I'm assuming p ≠ 0 since she exist. I actively looked for her a few years ago but I now just have her as passive search.

    My one grail was ITEM #163750. When I saw him posted up here for such a decent price I was hesitant but also knew if this was real I needed to act. I don't encourage this and I only say do it if you know you have a consistent income. I charged it. I usual would never charge figures and only go off my debit card. But I saw it as a one time opportunity. So I did it. I don't regret it. I recommend if you do this to pay the shit off ASAP. In the end it does go off the rule everyone else is saying: you don't have the money you don't get it. Paying off bills requires cash as well in the end.

    When I come across a grail I pounce like a Star-Nosed Mole!!. The figure collecting gods smile!

    If I'm cash-strapped I'll have to let it go. Nothing I can do about it. I did, however, asked to pay by installments once with a MFC seller who very kindly agreed.
    I won't even go looking at expensive grails when I don't have any money, that saves a lot of heartache haha.
    However I did have a few prize-figure grails that I can instantly pay for (price is super cheap, they just aren't popular to be readily available) which I'll just buy in a heartbeat :)

    I don't have grails but I might give in if I found a figure I want at a veeery good price like, say, about twice cheaper than it normally goes for and such discount is a rare occasion. Though these days I mostly notice figures I was hunting a few years ago but couldn't find or afford and now they pop up for quite cheap and I already don't want them.

    I make it a point not to look for grails unless I'm able to afford them at that time for that exact reason. It saves me a lot of disappointments. I look them up every once in a while to see where their prices are at, to give me a good idea of what to expect, and when I have the money, then I start looking for them. I don't want to jeopardise my finances because of figures.

    In my country usually the sellers or proxies allow for down payment and you can pay the rest later and they'll send the item after you have paid in full so i usually pay partially.
