Welcome to Fate! it's all downhill from here, haha... I'm so glad that FGO is getting released in English; I tried playing it when it first came out but the language barrier was too much ;-; One of these days I'd like to give Extella a try, too.

As for what I'm saving for this year--probably the several open preorders I already have >.< I have 6 figures on order, which is the highest I've ever had at once. (plus a seventh, a gift for my boyfriend). I'll have to watch my spending in June and September in particular... Luckily September is my birth month and I usually get some money from relatives for my birthday, so I'm not too worried about paying for item #464633 and item #553119. June has item #512154, a Yuri on Ice strap, and item #464602 (Link is the present; my bf's birthday is in June). They may seem inexpensive by themselves, but two nendoroids adds up fast haha...

I should probably also start saving for item #464590 and item #464625, which I already know I want, but will no doubt be pricey... I hope either of them gets updates soon so I know just how much of a hit I'll take ><

My only complaint about Fate getting so many figures is that there's a major lack of male figures.

Added stuff to my wishlist but haven't ordered any other Fate stuff other than Sascath, hoping to keep myself out of this rabbit hole till I have the $$$$$ to afford it since I'm just getting finished with Gi Joe stuff and trying to avoid another period of obsession over a series.
Still this gives me time to look over what Fate/Grand Order stuff is in the database and decide which ones would be worth getting.


As a quote from one of my favorite movies from 2015 or was it 16

Anyways .

" You got out once ! You dip so much as a pinky back into this pond and you may well find something reaches out and drags you back into it's depths!

Run for your lives !!!

Sticking with just the Fate theme, I used to be totally indifferent to the Fate series, and probably disliked it for some odd reason (still not sure why honestly). Then I watched the first season of Prisma Illya... Even though it's a comedy spin-off, it was enough to get me interested in the real story and curious about their real personalities. Next thing I knew I was all in! My #1 Fate Wifey is Santa Lily, followed by Altera at 1.5. Then the Prisma Illya girls are all tied for second. Ibaraki and Shuten come next, and finally Mashu,Jeanne, and Rin. Not gonna lie, I don't like Saber very much. I know she's the most popular, and has that "Miku level" cult following, but I can't get into her. I do own the Huke version of Alter, and she's amazing, but that's because she's different. All the other Sabers are so generic.

As for Fate figures, I have 3 preordered: item #464747, item #397024, item #397025

And as for figures I'm currently preparing for:
Santa Lily scale and Nendo item #549412 item #549394
Altera scales item #568903 item #464644
Illya item #549080
Shuten item #464632 item #464685
Jeanne item #464829 item #464650

Sadly no Ibaraki figures yet

As for non Fate related stuff I'm focusing on: KanColle. KanColle. KanColle..... Too many friggin KanColle figures to buy. Madoka Magica of course. Everything else is pretty sporadic, just specific characters I like, not really focusing on shows or series.

F/GO will definitely get more attention once the english port releases in summer (Which would probably mean more merchandise sold lol). That said, I'm saving up for all my pre-orders of various nendoroids (Fate series, Re:Zero, Konosuba, Nagato, and the rereleased Red) and two scales (Alter Eli and GSC Miku V4X).

Heldrik (2 месяца назад) #20100244The thing with Fate/Grand Order is that, aside from being a rabbit hole like you just said, it's sitting on the fence: on one hand you have awesome designs, on the other hand you have shameless steaming pandering garbage (be it for otaku or fujoshi). Sadly, there's more of the latter than the former. And let's not get started on male Servants and their abysmal representation in figures...
Now, back on topic, since I like the Fate franchise, I'm saving funds for the Maiden of Orléans' dark alter ego mainly, though I don't know if it will be the Aniplex one or the Alter one, I'll have to wait for photos, release dates and prices to make up my mind.
As for the hypothetical ones, MashuI wouldn't mind a MAshu scale, but I will wait till Stronger gives us more info on their figure to decioe if I should pick theirs or Aniplex's. I also eagerly wait for photos of Nitocris item #549493 (hoping it'll be as cool as item #547577) and Marie-Antoinette item #549528.
Finally, I hope that Apocrypha's anime coming soon will help us get male figures, especially of Siegfried, Karna (he's already got a nice Garage Kit item #524147) or Vlad III. Of course, veterans like Kojirô or Cúchulainn would be greatly appreciated. The latter especially, seeing as his Alter Berserker persona's got a cool GK item #546787.


Over the years the one thing that got my attention the most with the Fate Franchise has been the artwork and character designs,that's what is drawing me in with Fate/Grand Order and I'm still looking at designs of the characters from the Fate/Extella game.

Very tempted to get more scaled figures from this series but I'm hesitant since I feel a lot of it would be impulse orders since it was a impulse to preorder Sascath and trying to avoid any impulse purchases now for any of the Prize figures that are out so I usually have to ease back from a new series that gets my attention otherwise I'll jump down that rabbit hole and shell out a few hundred bucks faster than one can say "WHOAH THERE! YOU DON'T HAVE ANY SPACE FOR THIS STUFF!"

I love the different designs of the Fate series so it's now down to finding that right figure that gets my attention.


gundamuk (2 месяца назад) #20100657Definately get the Figmas- regardless of series affiliation they come with different facial expression options which allow for near endless amusement.
As for what I'm saving up for item #553483 looks to be the most expensive on my pre-order list.


The figmas from the Fate Series look great, thought about getting a few of them while I was cleaning out but resisted that and the extra facial expressions are pretty nice and I like the effect pieces that they have so I know I'm going to have to get a few figma and Archer's figma item #27684 is one of those that gets my interest since I like how it looks.

I have no interest in the fate series, but I am getting the Tama nendoroid next month. And I should save up for all the other nendoroids I've preordered that are releasing this year (megumin, aqua, darkness, hanamaru, dia, horo, serval, and the suits).

ChocolateSpider (2 месяца назад) #20096259A part of me doesn't want to see any more of the Fate series because I have a strong suspicion I will need to get some Tamamo and Sascath figures. I've only seen Fate/Zero and Unlimited Blade Works and that resulted in me owning these.
My Fate Collection.
Now that you have mentioned there is a Fate/Grand Order movie, I think you may have just dragged me into that rabbit hole with you.
I totally had that Fate/Extra Saber once too. But I sold it because it felt out of place with the other Fate figures, but I have since then regretted that decision.
Why couldn't I have just stopped at Unlimited Blade Works? Please forgive me, Wallet. T3T


I only watched the Fate/Grand Order movie since I was curious about it and I saw the Unlimited Blade Works movie and now I'm tempted to watch it again.


It is a Rabbit hole for sure, I like the designs from the Fate Grand Order series.

I know I may need to get some Shielder figures for sure since I really like her character design.

MarshallDTeach (2 месяца назад) #20096187the swimsuits get your attention huh? I personally would have said the tits got my attention, but ok.
Me, I'm saving up to get the Hot Toys Arkham Asylum Joker
and the the rest of the SH Figuarts Ninja Turtles. I currently only have Donatello. My next one will definitely be Raphael (my favorite of the brothers) and I'm really looking forward to Shredder (Assuming they don't cancel him)


I like the designs more than anything, that's usually what gets my attention if it's something that's not like the usual standard swimsuit design.

I'm saving for Turtles too, but the ones I'm going after are the NECA 1/4th Scale 1990 TMNT Action figures and I have Leonardo on pre-order and waiting for when Michelangelo is released.
