loveanime (27 giorno/i fa) #52509887There is always the option to not pick it up at all which I have been doing a lot lately in the current "figflation" environment. There is such a thing as "price elasticicty" and at 18k for a non-cast off 1/8 I am out. I will have no regrets it if goes up to 40k.
Some figures will go up in the aftermarket but my experience (based on more than 1500 figures in my collection of which 40 are from Alter), most of them go down in the longer term, including some that went up a lot initially. So for every figure that goes up to 40k, there are a lot more that crash, like this one ITEM #96896 which completely imploded in price. And even a more recent Alter ITEM #603641 which was 13k for a 1/7 is already selling at 10k unopenend, and 8k opened, on Mandarake.
The main thing I learned of the last six years is that buying later saves a lot more money than buying earlier. The savings from that strategy far outweigh the extra cost of those few figures that rally and that you absolutely want. In fact in most cases I still did not wait long enough. One of the challenges will be that with the explosion of releases there will be too many old figures chasing too few collectors. And there is the issue that it is an investment in plastic which will decay eventually. Even the best storage will only delay the inevitable.
Bottomline: best to treat these purchases as expenses with money you will never need again, not as investments.

I know you are undeniably right and I absolutely agree with you, sir. But I just can't hold off myself for not pre-ordering. I ended up selling many for cheap too and know this pain so well. For ones that increase its price, I just can't sell them. I am the one who loses in this cruel market, Alter probably loves someone like me. Ahhh... this is so painful.

1/8 scale for 18k yen, is just too crazy these days.

Lately I have been having more JOHMO (joy of having missed out) when I can buy at lower aftermarket prices.
I have never been very big on pre-orders but almost everything I pre-ordered has dropped in price, sometimes even before the item arrived at my doorstep, which can be rather frustrating. So now I only pre-order figures that absolute must haves and that are unlikely to drop much based on past experience with certain characters and brands.
But even some of the things I hunted for after the release and which I thought were bargains at that time, continued to drop in price years later. Either the figure drops right after the release, e.g. ITEM #603641, or it first rallies to a peak but then drops subsequently once everybody who wants to pay a crazy price for it has bought it and once people start selling due to space and financial constraints so they can buy new things. Only a select few figures will stay high and continue to go up.
And then of course there are the re-releases, e.g. ITEM #269686 is a figure I have been wanting for a long time and wisely did not buy at higher after-market prices because it is now being re-released at a more reasonable 7400 JPY in today's market (remember how that was considered expensive just a few years ago).
For most of us, money is unfortunately not unlimited, so pre-ordering an 1/8 at 18k means giving up a several other aftermarket figures.


Mind share where do you guys check on the aftermarket drop in price for figurines? I'm interested to have a look at them too!

AkibaMelon (27 giorno/i fa) #52516031This is such a good and well-written comment tbh! I find myself agreeing to this kind of approach more and more lately. I used to be they type that would always pre-order as long as I couldn't stand the idea of not having secured a particular figure; and to be fair, there ARE these figs that - even before release - skyrocket in price and everyone gets emotional over not being able to own them (e.g. Xenoblade's Pyra & Mythra).
But I have to agree, this trend of mere 1/8s starting at 18k is making me question my PO habits so much. I would absolutely LOVE to preorder Alter's Velvet for example but atm I feel like I just can't. I paid less for Freeing's Bunny fig of Shiro which is a 1/4 and that's kind of crazy tbh. Right now I feel the pressure of commiting to a preorder of that price range is scarier than the fear of missing out and I decided to just try hunting whatever I desire once it's released (just like in the good ol days when I didn't had a proper budget at all lol x'D)


Thank you. I can the say the same about yours because it reflects so well how I feel! What you wrote "the pressure of committing to a preorder of that price range is scarier than the fear of missing [FOMO] out and I decided to just try hunting whatever I desire once it's released" summarizes things perfectly!

Sierra80 (2 mese/i fa) #48557484Have you seen how much that Yoko figure goes for secondhand? Around 40k yen on Mandarake.
I think anyone that waits to pick this up in the aftermarket is going to be unpleasantly surprised.

PsFreedom (1 mese/i fa) #52214319With the current price, Alter sure mliks us hard. I hope she is a little bit bigger, like 1/7 ~260-270mm for example. They should give us some base too rather than plain clear one.
But this is the best Kurumi figure for sure. See the detail at her belly, it far better than Alphamax. Hope Alter can keep up with this prototype detail as they promised.
I just want only one figure, will pre-order soon.

As far as bases go, clear ones are usually placeholders.
I'm hoping this one will at least have the Zafkiel print on it, instead of mono-color.
Purple Heart had a nice print on it.
