iCollection keeps growing!?!?n/a

I never have an end goal to anything I collect. I keep track of the # of Pop Funko's I own but that's just out of curiosity. I'd be sad if one of my collections came to an end by having everything or it being discontinued. I'll keep this hobby till I die.

I primarily collect 1/4 figures. Im in a situation where space is filling up too fast and I may have to think about where I live to accompdate them all or just stop buying :(

turnmebackwards (Hace 2 meses) #20028083That is amazing, so just you collect or your husband as well? I think if I shared the hobby or joined my collection together with someone I might keep going & never stop and if more accepted in other places in the house rather then one room, but then again it's expensive & space is a big issue due to one room for display.

Just me, though if you see anything Minnie Mouse, that's his. He kinda collects Minnie Mouse stuff.

Collection started off in the study, but snuck out into other rooms slowly, and there were no objections (and in some cases, encouragement with new shelves n' stuff :P), so now it's in most rooms of the house lol. Bathroom and kitchen are the exceptions.

I don't really have a goal, be it clear or vague.

When I started buying figures, it was (and still is) mainly to pay tribute to characters I like. I have figs that I want (or would like) to have that can be considered "goals", though it's not set in stone. Who knows, maybe I'll like new characters from new series in the future, so that will add new entries into my wishlist...

Concerning number of figs, I don't know. I guess that since I favor quality over quantity, not that much. I honestly think it'd be neat to reach 20 figures. Then again, I don't really have a plan. Same goes for eventually quitting or reaching an hypothetical end.

Hmm, I really don't know at this point...it's taken me almost 7 years to collect 40 nendoroids, make a Higurashi "shrine" and purchase a few scales here and there and that's it.

There haven't been any series besides Higurashi that I've been completely obsessed with so without dedicated shrines and pretty scales to display I guess I'll just keep riding the nendo train until I feel like they're in overpopulated prisons and must be freed! (sold) :p

As long as they make more figures, especially of the characters we love...

...will there really be an "end" goal? ;_;

My goal, win the lottery, buy a building for me and my figures, and collect to my heart's content. Not likely going to happen, but I can always hope. In the meantime, I make do with what I can.

turnmebackwards (Hace 2 meses) #20035203I have a DVD / Blu-ray / part of my gaming collection stored under my bed, space is 100% a issue. If I only collected Anime figures I'd be fine but having many collections it's not easy to balance. Could always sleep on top of Anime figure boxes YAY!

I have about half my doujinshi collection stashed under my bed right now, lol. And I've got more that will be coming in the mail soon...

I just want to get the last of my grails and I'll feel super satisfied with my collection. :)

After having multiple shrines for characters/series and selling most of it, I don't really feel the need to have a collection standard since I kind of already met it. Now I just pick and choose what I'd like to have in different parts of the apartment to hold character :P

No goals regarding figures, I started collecting nendos last year and don't think I could stop, maybe more space or a bigger house, because storing and displaying space isn't enough right now
2Hace 2 mesesdarkfaderdarkfader
Perhaps a second or bigger house. Oh, and some space for a small library would be nice.
And a few extra creditcards since they just keep getting blocked xD

No goals for me, I just wanna keep collecting forever
as is one of the things in life that bring me happiness.
I know I will eventually run out of space so I plan on
whenever I get a house to get a room for collection only~xD
maybe have a few displays in the living room, WHO KNOWS!
We'll see where the hobby takes me.

Goals? No. An end goal? No.

Missions? I try not to anymore; for one thing, completionism is more trouble than it's worth. I do luck out and manage to snag a grail every once in awhile.

Collecting forever? Yeah, probably. It's held my interest this far.

A plan when starting out? Hah, no. For the most part, my collection has grown organically.

A number? No, and as for the size of my collection, I try not to think about it anymore :P

I didn't have goals when I started, I was buying what I liked and 100 figures seemed unreachable (not that I aimed at that). My collection grew and grew until there was no more space for new figures. Maybe that's one of the reasons I lost interest in scales and moved to figmas and these days I do have a goal - to sell off many figures coz I'm tired of my crowded space and boxes everywhere. The hardest part is to make myself let them go coz to me they're not characters you fall in and out of love with, they're nicely sculpted pieces of art and the beauty of that doesn't seem to get old :)

kunariel (Hace 2 meses) #20034462Oh God. I currently have 7 DETOLFs. SEVEN.
I don't know what happened.
My boyfriend has already asked what I want for my birthday and before I could answer he said "Let me guess, figures and a DETOLF?"
I have room for MAYBE two more, but I probably need at least four with what I currently have. My boyfriend has space for a case, but I know if I put any figures in it I would take up all his space haha
I have orders through January 2018 but after that I'm not doing anymore preorders, unless I buy from sites that require payment upfront. We're planning our wedding for late 2018 and after that looking to save for a house, so I'm gonna cut back as much as possible.
I also want to take the time to actually organize my displays since everything looks so cramped right now.
I'm really looking forward to slowing down, but I don't think I'll stop completely anytime soon!


That's awesome sounds like you have gone crazy with collecting, but at least your having fun & your boyfriend accepts the hobby.

murialita (Hace 2 meses) #20034389My "goal" is to collect as long as it makes me happy and I can afford it.
I keep reading about people complaining about being out of space. Yet they insist on having things that totally hog space, like beds. Seriously, if you are going to be hardcore, sell your bed, and put however many shelves in it's place! Lots of space found!
(I do not recommend this, just trying to get a laugh)


I have a DVD / Blu-ray / part of my gaming collection stored under my bed, space is 100% a issue. If I only collected Anime figures I'd be fine but having many collections it's not easy to balance. Could always sleep on top of Anime figure boxes YAY!

I'm about to buy my 4th, 5th and 6th DETOLF tomorrow ... XD despite the fact that I have sold off most of my anime collection, my now very humble collection just so fits 3 DETOLFS. The new ones are for my Hot Toys. XD

I swear, I am selling these figures but I was still shocked to find that I can't fit all of them in 3 DETOLFS. XD

I find your goal interesting and if you can keep at it, definitely good for your wallet. ^^'' However, I couldn't see myself limiting myself like that.

I don't really have a goal except for, get what makes me happy and if it doesn't make me happy anymore, sell it. :)
