Those figure companies sure know how to tempt us with their latest and greatest version of figs, right? The question is do you give in and have that completist compulsion drain your wallets?
Most toy collectors have money allotted for their hobby, of course there are those lucky ones with more money to burn. But was there ever a time that you wanted a toy oh so badly to complete a series or a line that you dip those fingers into your savings because you have already exceeded your budget? If I were still single and younger and don’t know any better, I guess I would have. ^^; I’m suppressing the completist in me because of budget constraints but if I had the means, I’ll probably buy the entire Vocaloid series faster than you can say Hatsune Miku Nendoroid.
I also wanted to buy all the Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls but I missed out on Sanada Yukimura and Senhime (which I really regret) but I lost interest in the upcoming figures except for Naoe which I PO’d already. I think the only set that I completed was the school uniform version of the K-On! Nendoroid, oh wait, I don’t have Ui so yeah I haven’t completed anything. Lol. I have this thing though that I want to get at least two of my favorite characters from the same series for display purposes. You wouldn’t want to have one odd and lonely figure in your display shelf now, would you? Well at least, that’s just how I feel about it. ^^;
So, if you have just one chance to complete a set of figures, which series would you choose and why? Don’t forget to insert world peace to your answer, okay? Lol.
