    I generally go kurocha since i more familiar with it. Cheapest around would be ordering online from http://www.myotakushop.com/ . So far i have been there a lot of times and their prices have been constantly the lowest. toysntoy also not bad but i have some feedback from friends that their admin side a bit cock up at times.

    The site i suggested is sumthing like kknm but cheaper prices.... i been to kurocha and kknm as well but their products sold out too fast liao.... kurocha is more for WS trading cards player since the constant intake of trading cards and sleeves.... haha i have a beri funny idea..... we mass order as a club then ask the store to give discounts..... (horns popping out and teeths revealed).

    He would appear and stun all of you with his collection of mecha figurines.

    Also, who plays WS here? I play a FSN deck, so come play with me.

    I wanted to start off with a FSN deck at first, but that time when i wanted to buy in a trial deck, it was all sold out, so it pretty much turned me off and i didn't bother about it afterwards. Regardless, my purpose for buying the deck is more for collection sake than to play, so it didn't really matter to me.

    Like I told you, I can always provide you with a trial deck. I have enough spare cards lying around to form a new deck.

    Haha, sure.

    Being a Typemoon fan, the only figurines I have are those from Typemoon. That includes a Ryougi Shiki, a Saber Lily nendo, and Fate/Zero Saber and Kiritsugu. Yup, that's pretty much all I have.

    Eh? You buy figurines not to put them up, but to let them hide in their boxes? T_T

    I don't get it. What's the point of buying something so nice and expensive then keep it in its box?!

    Invest in a acrylic box and keep it safe from external environments.

    I only got Lelouch nendos... Too poor to buy so many.

    Then you'd have to spend money on acrylic boxes, money that could have gone to more figures. Anyway sometimes the packaging is real nice, and maybe even good for display as well.

    But that's not the way I roll, I like to fiddle around with my figures ,so I'd rather keep them Loose rather than Mint in Box.

    Also, since Kage has not been posting a while, I'll help him shill his collection which he put up for show in a previous thread:
    http://forum.ntuvisualarts.com/anime-general-talk-f3/post-ur-figma-nendo-gundam-mecha-other-figurine-random-pics-or-stuff-t66.htm
    You may have also seena sampling of his stuff at our Subclub Meet and greet a few weeks back.

    Also for those of you who like Nendos and Figmas, check out one of our alumni's (our boss lady from several years back) blogs on figure photography. They also conduct regular gatherings for Figma/Nendo fans if you're interested ( http://blog.berribunz.com/ )

    Would like to say that there is obviously a few types of collectors.

    Those that collect things in their original form. (spare in some cases)
    Those that collect to display.
    Those that collect to use, play with and share

    "True" otaku collectors apparently fall into all of these categories, hence the need to buy 3 of each XD as the saying goes...but lately I think its been getting hard to continue this lifestyle due to the release of a lot of high quality goods as well as a lot of variations being limited...

    Sry I dun have gd photography skills but I was considering bringing figures on and off in "themes" if you all want...will try to post pics of the other parts of my collection other than those shelves. (need to make space for a few more figures)

    yes i've got sankt kaiser vivio too, brought her last time but didn't have space to display her on the table.
