Seeing as how most Chinese Cartoons are merchandise driven (and I couldn't find a thread similar to this), why don't we discuss anime related paraphernalia. Whether it's things we're waiting to throw our money at, things we want to throw our money at or things that we're waiting to receive.

Any discussion pertaining to anime related merchandise is welcome.

To start off the thread here's Good Smile Company's releases for this month:

Nendoroid Yamato
Nendoroid Kashuu Kiyomitsu
Nendoroid Co-de: Shion Todo - Baby Monster Cyalume Co-de
Nendoroid Co-de: Shion Todo - Eternal Punk Co-de
Nendoroid Nico Yazawa (Second Release)
Nendoroid Honoka Kosaka (Second Release)
Nendoroid Pouch: Sleeping Bag (Kashuu Kiyomitsu Ver.)
figma Rin Tohsaka 2.0
figFIX Amatsukaze: Half-Damage ver.
Plamya-sama


Also to get it out of our system and help start some conversation:
Which do you prefer figures or statueshit?

Do you guys have any idea for how long figures can still be acquired after the manufacturer has discontinued them? In other words, how likely am I going to regret not buying now something I want?

Unless it's a model kit, or proves to be crazy popular (like the figma link) I'd say most of the time you might be able to find it in release. 
Honestly though buying it used of a Japanese sight is almost the same as a used figure, and is almost always cheaper. Unless it's an exclusive or insanely popular.

The only thing you'll ever see me buy are wall scrolls. No offense to you guys but I don't see the purpose in collecting the other stuff you've mentioned.

I wouldn't mind owning some figurines but I'm not crazy about them.  I have like, a Wonder Woman action figure and a bust on my bookshelf, but I don't have anything anime related.  Still, I might like to have a Nagato figure or something else like that.

Really I'd prefer to have anime posters, but I hear that all the stuff online is of low quality and poor selection so you're better off getting something custom printed.  I've looked into it but haven't done anything yet.  I'd love to have some Haruhi posters or Ikoku Meiro no Croisee.

I have a couple nendoroids but other than that all I have are t-shirts that are slight reference to anime, most of them a normal person wouldn't even recognized what its from.

People like to get stuff of things that they like. Personally I like figures because you can mess around with them.

Still I'm surprised that for an anime inspired forum, not that many here have figures or statues.

I have six or seven Asuka scales and figurines and some wall scrolls. Oh, and a daki, that's it though.

I have no figures. I kind of see the appeal, but they're too expensive for my taste. I've got a ton of posters, though, and a KlK keychain.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.
