    -This topic is for posting your monthly pre-orders as well as showing off your latest loot-

    This month brings with it some heavy news for yours truly, I cancelled the overwhelming majority of my figure pre-orders that were spread across multiple sites. Bringing my total number of pre-ordered figures from 51 to 17. About half of which have already been payed in full.

    Having collected for nearly a year, let me offer advice some of our newest members. Learn restraint. Buy only figures of characters you really love from shows you really enjoyed, or you too could end up making a post about how you suddenly realized you're running out of space or money. You'll take a look at your display and the thought will cross your mind that you didn't even really like that character... and you paid eighty dollars for her 1/8 scale figure!

    There's nothing worse than coming to this realization about half of your collection, and most of your pre-orders. Because then you have to work to sell the half of your collection you impulse bought on the high immediately following finishing up an anime, and you'll almost certainly be selling at a loss. Then you have to argue with anti-consumer figure sites who will refuse your requests to cancel your orders or ban you; instead telling you that you'd better pay. (Yes this happened)

    That being said, I do still have two figures coming in this month. There won't be another coming in for a while afterwords though.

    Ultimately, I'm not suggesting anyone stop. I know I'm not going to. I do urge you to really consider whether or not that 4th Miku is really worth 12k...

    Only 4th? lol

    But yeah, I agree about the whole "only buy figures from shows you like", I think that's a pretty good base rule to avoid things getting out of hand. I cancelled Ranko for that very reason, I was like "wait why am I doing this, buying a 16k figure of a show I don't even like?". At one point you have to realize that you can't own everything, even if you have the financial means there is also the physical space issue to consider, no point in owning tons of figures when some of them end up in storage because you have nowhere to display them...

    There are some exceptions though. Pretty much nobody outside of Japan ever played 7th Dragon 2020 (thanks, Sega) but the Samurai alt color and Miku scales are freaking amazing (and relatively cheap!) so I can't recommend them enough.

    Oh I guess I should also add my September pre-orders to this post too, since that's the main idea of this thread lol:

    After some great cancellations my September has become smaller but still not small.

    Battleship RE-Class was delayed to this month, so that's my only pickup, and hopefully the last figure of the year for me.
    Exchange rates here are wrecking my economies.

    I have nothing for September. Might buy Koto's Juri Han Bishoujo from amazon but will depend on how my expenses play out for the month. Low on shelf space anyway. The rest of the year is pretty quiet for me actually, the only month I'm breaking 10k in is December so far.

    Assuming no delays, I have:

    If I remember right Haru & Makoto were only pushed back a month, so hopefully it'll be the same with Rin. I also got two emails this morning confirming that Cynthia was shipped from the Pokemon Center and Mikazuki Munechika from Amiami. After no preorders in July it kinda feels like figure feast or famine. :v

    milk120: 51 to 17 is a crazy amount. Most of my picks get stretched out. And I wait to see just in case with some. That Akira Yamamoto for example. The Sideshow Vampirella is another one. I have a feeling I won't get that one. The over prized Bayonetta figure was supposed to come out in August. I don't know about that one either.

    On my list for this month isn't much I think. I'll probably get that Quorra figure. I've been putting of Kotobukiya Cammy because of the other versions that might be good. But I do like the Kotobukiya version. And will get her eventually. Maybe this month.
    I want vintage anime and videogame figures!

    Megahouse also included an extra ahoge that's easy to misplace. I thought that was a nice touch.

    Disregard the placement of the pistol in the above pictures - I just put it in her hand without lining it up with the palm and finger before taking the photos. It does fit correctly, fyi, if you're concerned about it.

    This figure tempted me for a long time. And still does. The GK vibe is too stronk.
