Comentarios Figures that doesn't suit your age anymore?

Great Figures, Amazing Service, Fantastic Price!
  • Gonalexhace 1 año#63515146Man, you have no idea how true what you just said it and how sad it makes me that our society is so close-minded. I really don't want to bring politics into this but I have to for the sake of context.
    So I was arguing with a friend of mine who went to study in the states who has become a far-leftist. I won't get into detail of what we were arguing about but she accused me of being a transphobe even though I'm a huge Ally. After that, because I attacked her arguments she went on further to call me a pedophile out of nowhere. I ask her lol wtf why would you ever call me that??? And she tells me that because I have this [url=]ITEM #167156[/url] in my room and that I'm just another one of those sickos that reinforces sexualization of underage girls. Facepalmed as hard as I physically could... Mind you that was a bday gift from 2 female friends of mine that know I was obsessed with Monogatari at the time they gifted me this.
    I got outed as a pedophile from my now turned SJW friend because I own a cutesy figurine of Shinobu. Her argument was that she's not wearing much and it's obviously for perverts...
    This is the type of shit we have to deal with my guys. 21st century and people still think like this.
    I'm sorry for the super negative rant my guys but I really had to let that out...


    I think you're taking the comment a little too personal, arguments that degenerate into name calling aren't ones born of logic. The politics bit also doesn't really relate, that's what started the argument, clearly.

    This is a silly hobby, with tons of valid criticism, that you will have to accept at some point or lose a lot of friends and family. Left, Right, Centrist, Black, White, Asian, Catholic, Buddhist, Muslim, none of that matters. We are spending ~150 USD on average for plastic Anime girls and/or dudes. There are worse hobbies, but don't be looking for a legitimate justification to use in an argument. There is none.

    Judging by the two replies that have gotten most thumbs up, I think what I am about to say might sound odd.

    Today, for most people for issues far beyond the scope of this forum, everything is just thought of as "personal preference". However, there is such a thing as age and what is appropriate for that age. If some 30+ year old was going around collecting Giant Lego, that would be rightly considered odd. So there can be objective claims made regarding figures as well.

    If a figure is very crudely made, then it is likely that one would not prefer those things as one grows older. One would rather pursue the more well made ones. In other words, one tends to like things that approximate the actual things much better. For the same reason, when it comes to subject matter, one would be more inclined to pick characters involved in subject matter that is more mature as well. By 'mature', usually people refer to subjects that are grounded in reality. Even when it comes to fantasy, the older person is more likely to prefer the fictional fantasy that deals with mature themes (political struggles, wars over resource scarcity etc.).

    So it appears to me that your feelings are indeed grounded in something objective in this case. Perhaps, although you reserved the word childish to the feeling, it may also be objectively true to some extent.....

    AlienEmojihace 1 año#63474307Honestly, that's just not a healthy way of looking at your hobbies.
    Hobbies are meant to be fun for you and bring you joy and it shouldn't matter if they are within your age range.
    Yes there are things that someone should be old ENOUGH for (like the figure you linked that certainly a bit too risque for a child to own), but one should never feel TOO old to enjoy something.
    Adults should be allowed, willing and able to embrace and nurture their inner child.
    As someone who used to repress nearly every cutesy hobby I had because it felt embarrassing to have them as a guy/adult, believe me when I say that you feel much happier and more confident when you decide not to give a shit about what others might think.


    Hi, I'm not OP but I struggle with expressing my love for anime as well. My rooms stays closed when distance family comes over, it is really hard to stop caring. I will have family coming over to stay at our place next year and I'm worried about what to do about my room (I made a blog about it before). So if you have any tips please share!

    You don't actually think you're too old for these figures. That's just how you feel others think about it. That's why you say how much you like how they look but question if you're too old for them. You're asking us because you want validation from others that you're not too old for them. If you like them then keep them. And if someone judges you and gives you a hard time for owning them or saying it's childish then just tell them it's sad that they are more concerned with your life than they are with their own. That will shut them up.

    rogue_ghace 1 año#63514930Nothing about this hobby is socially acceptable in general, be it in your teens, 20s, 30s, whatever. Once you accept that, then determine if you still are happy with your figures or not. Peoples tastes change, don't let it be because of a notion that it's more socially acceptable to have less cute characters.

    Man, you have no idea how true what you just said it and how sad it makes me that our society is so close-minded. I really don't want to bring politics into this but I have to for the sake of context.

    Can't relate sadly as my collection has aged beautifully. And I hardly think it's an age thing, even uttering the opinion sounds pretty closed minded for someone is a part of MFC. Sounds to me that u lost interest in said franchise. Maybe you have outgrown the series yes, but the merch still appeals to a certain audience and age. It's like people telling you oh hey you can't buy merch from that show, it's for kiddies! So I'd stray off that path of thinking if I were you.

    I Started collecting when I was 18-19 and now I'm 23 and even though my tastes have changed a lot I still value almost everything I got as I rarely bought stuff from IPs I wasn't utterly in love with.
    Shit load of Square Enix stuff which I still like just not as much, like I spend way too much on XV merch but I mostly do KH from SE and KH2FM is still my fave game of all time So I regret nothing. Quite proud of what I got and how I got here

    Now after that, we got the disgusting number of 55 amiibo which honestly...I don't regret much either. Like I still intend on finishing the smash line up one day and for mini figurines that cost me 12 euro a pop they were pretty decent for what they were really

    Now for the big one, JOJO MERCH. I don't regret spending a single dime on JoJo merch as I love Araki's work.

    Honestly, my selling list is quite small and it's mostly because I need the money. It's still stuff I'd want to keep and even I don't know if I will actually sell if people message me. The only thing I want to 100% get rid of is the Eromanga sensei nendoroid... Dark times don't judge me :(

    My advice would be to not buy so much stuff just from current season hype or u will regret it in the long run like some of my friends have done.

    There's a difference between feeling like you're no longer interested in something and feeling like you're too old to collect something. For instance, I have certain figures/series that I was super into years ago that I'm not as interested in now and I wouldn't purchase them now, but I don't believe that you're 'too old' to collect things from specific series. Do (and collect) what makes you happy!

    Collect what makes you happy.

    I have a friend who's a big Star Wars fan and he still picks up every action figure, playset, LEGO ship, plushy, toy lightsaber, etc. You name it, he's got it.

    I'm a grown man who enjoys cute and sexy scales.

    Everyone's into something. So what?

    I just don't go interjecting my hobbies into every conversation.

    Maybe your tastes have simply changed over time.

    I guess that means I'm not allowed to collect Pokemon figures based on your rules since Pokemon is "meant for" and "made for children". Do you see how silly this sounds? Honestly, it really doesn't matter and you'll find that most people around you who really care about you, doesn't care either and can at least appreciate the figures you've listed for their aesthetic.

    You're never too old or too young for anything. Unless it explicitly says 18+ and you're a minor, it really does not matter. But you're not. So, enjoy your hobby. It's okay. No one is judging you and you might find yourself a little bit happier.
