I'll reply to a vague question with a vague answer: Figurines are expensive.

Which figurine do you want?

I'm currently in Japan. I've bought a bunch of figures on this trip, so here are a few of them. I posted these on the Animenation forum. You can click the images for a larger version.

Etna, the DFC goddess (or demoness, actually)!



Arche and Mint from Tales of Phantasia, beautiful Kotobukiya figures.

This is my most expensive figure to date (excluding my Macross Valkyries)

Where would my limit lie?
Dunno, I probably would have forked out €500-€1000 for a mass produced 1/2000 Macross SDF1 (not sure if you can call this a figurine though)

In the PVC figure dept. maybe €200 max for a big ass 'must have!' character (can't think of one though)

In the resin -non built- dept. I would say €350-€500 excluding commision (since I can't build or paint the buggers myself)


Got an old saying over here

"Hobbies are allowed to cost money" (and trust me, they will!)

So basicly: as long as you can still eat and have a roof above your head, the sky's the limit

Though riding a motorcycle, playing guitar and collecting figures, I've luckily yet to reach the sky
Being single and having a full time job helps alot in that

Thanks for the relies, everyone.

Nice figurine, greg.

Yeah, hobbies do cost money.

Maybe a 1/4, fully decked out, poised for battle, barrier jacket and all. Extra points yen for having elaborate StrikerS Nanoha long hair too.

Ok. Ok, Komari. Sorry for not being unclear.

How much does an average figurine cost? How about a Street Fighter?

Figurines from widely popular (worldwide) games like Street Fighter tend to be on the cheap end. You'll rarely find an expensive one of these, and expensive ones will usually be a garage kit (an indie creation created on a small scale).

Hmm... Street Fighter...

I'm trying to think about what I've seen... I know there's a few Revoltechs, but the only one I can name off the top of my head that's not from the tie-in game is Chun-Li. I also know there's some statue-ish (I still have no idea what terminology I should use here for unscaled figures...) ones of Cammy and Chun-Li, as well as a recent figure of Ryu fighting Sagat- those are the more expensive ones. There's also some mini-busts of various characters, and there's a set of 4 Nendoroid Petites of the main girls from Lucky Star cosplaying as SF characters coming out next month...

Really, you should check out Capcom's US online store. They have a good number of SF figures (though some seem to be cheap action figures), but some of the better ones appear to be sold out: http://shop.capcom.com/store/capcomu...ultsPerPage=74

My Jun Watarase (Happiness) figure shipped Friday. Should have it this week I hope.

Can't be much longer until the Saber Golden Caliburn and Triumphant Excalibur are released either.

Somehow I don't think it'll be that sexy when the truth is revealed to observers.

lies. we're conne connoss *goes to dictionary.com* connoisseurs. The likes of Mizuho/Hideyoshi/what have you have long since converted us to the ranks of acceptance of such beauty. It's what's on the inside that matters, eye of beholder etcetc.

Thanks for link, xBTAx. But $79 for a figurine? That's too much for me.

Yea, that's norm price nowadays; the truly epic ones go for $100 and more. (I just paid for my VN02 Miku Hatsune reservation, cost me $153, $30 shipping included).
