Hmm, complicated because I went on a hiatus. But, I first saw Sengoku Nadeko figma then looked around more and bought my first figure (Figma Saber Alter) in 2012 on Amazon because Saber was too expensive then so I went with the cheaper version lol. Plus to me, Nadeko was expensive for her simple outfit and thought Saber Alter's armor looked cool (hoping for a 2.0). Then went on a hiatus because I was a broke college student plus I didn't have a credit card back then.
Became active again in 2014 and buying them through the usual sites. Since then I had no self control and blame Amiami for their awesome sales for my impulsiveness but set rules for myself only two months ago.
Yes, the waiting does have an effect with collecting (to me). I hear you. Maybe the frequency of your purchases make you feel burnt out? What show or character started you on this path and your first buy?

Went to Taiwan this summer and bought a few of my first figures from the anime shops, after coming home these past months I've just been ordering figures left and right whatever interests me. Besides shows that I've already watched I'll order stuff that looks well designed even if I never watched the source material like the Aegis and Miku
I just wish I didn't order each figure separately using SAL; it's just a pain when the priority shipping is like half the price of the figure

tsubaki243 года назад#16036597Not really hate them but THAT is my issue too, is there a term for it? Hehe.
This happened to Hestia. She was my first seasonal waifu and I didn't know any better, so you can only imagine when I saw her bin. I bought her GSC scale, nendo and koto scale but now I'm putting for sale.
THE PHASE is slightly happening to Racing Miku 2015 GSC scale, I was super excited then I got it but then chatter about her leaning came about so I haven't opened her. >_<;
I'm doing a collection overhaul though.

seargolid3 года назад#15795740So I'm really curious do you think the Amakuni head shape is ok? And how is the mirror base gimmick on the Kaitendo?

The Amakuni one is my favorite so far. I'm not having any problems with her specially when you have her personally. Maybe sometimes, photos doesn't give the figure justice cause it does not show the 3d look of the figure and vice versa. Some figures are great in pictures but it arrives, you will know what is the problem.

I also like the Kaitendoh Hestia but not as quite as the Amakuni one. Kaitendoh is also a great company cause I believe that they are a sister company of Good Smile? If I'm not mistaken.

minorimiyuki3 года назад#15795492Yeah, studies, I feel you.
I like the Hestia Wave too. If there is an opportunity, I would gladly grab her.
I'm happy that I didn't PO the Max Factory one cause her price really went downward this past months.

seargolid3 года назад#15794823Hey thanks for the reply! Very glad to talk to some one very passionate about Hestia haha
I have a "one fig per character" rule to save money (which I already broke but let's say it's one posable and one statue)
By now I think I would just have to cave in and buy two, one with the better face and one with the better pose lol
I haven't really considered the Amakuni because her head looks a bit flat to me in the pictures making her look like she has plagiocephaly lol (tho that's my only gripe on that one, body looks gr8)
In thinking the Max Factory has the best head, though imma nitpick on the face expression being a bit boring
Were there any others you considered?
I'm with you there on the 1/2 and 1/4 figures coming up, those prices man
I guess I wouldnt really be asking these questions if there were more reviews and pics but it's fun to discuss!
Don't worry about the late reply, cause I'm gonna be late too cause of school haha

minorimiyuki3 года назад#15793980Sorry for the late reply.
Tbh, I really love Hestia and if only I can, I will buy them all but when a certain char. starts to grow its merchandise, this one starts to bother me.
As a student, I don't have the luxury to buy all Hestia out there and this comes the thing that you are asking from me. The hits and misses.
Whenever you have the opportunity to grab the Amakuni/Hobby Japan Hestia figure, don't hesitate at all because she's my fav. of all the sculpts I have and maybe also from the upcoming ones. Also, Amakunis Hestia has a lower price also in the aftermarket so you don't have to bother buying over priced of her.
The Kaitendoh one as you have said failed in terms of delivering the Hestia face but I believe that that is the only mishaps on this figure. Her body is outstanding also the level of paint jobs and shading is spot on (you will understand it if you will have her or see it in person)
Most of the upcoming Hestia statues failed in terms of executing Hestias character specially in delivering her bubbly face and expression like ITEM #313506 which have been changed multiple times because of the face and ITEM #331558 which I did not PO because of the same reason also its price, might get one aftermaket because I have the gut feel that it will sell lower after the release.
PS: I highly recommend the Amakuni Hestia 11/10. If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'm on my school break right now so I might need some convo. to lessen my bore.
