I always open them. The value is still the same whether it's unopened or not, it just have to be in mint condition (both the figure and the box) then you can sell it for a good price. Only if it's a valuable figure, of course.

I intend to open them, but I do not currently have a suitable place to display them. That, and I'm probably going to be moving by the end of the summer, so it makes more sense to keep them boxed for the time being.

Same here. I have no intention of selling my figurines, so preserving them for the sake of resale value doesn't matter to me.

In addition to having very little shelf space, when I have my figurines on display, they collect dust like crazy. I do try to dust them off every few weeks or so, but sometimes it's just so frustrating that I just dust them off and box them up again.

I get them, open them, display them. I need to get a proper display case or shelves or anything soon though. Just having them on the top ledge of my desk and other spaces like that make them collect dust and I don't like dusting in detail weekly.

I did have to rebox them all and keep them all in a cardboard box when I moved house last summer. I was only in the new house for 3 1/2 months so I just decided I'd re-unbox them once I moved again to a more permanent place.

I'm a collector and admirer so yeah I get ones of character's I love and show em off...

Got some badly lit photos to show my upgraded collection (new nendos are Frau, Ultimate Madoka, Wakana and Leon)









I need to stop buying figures, but I can't do it, I can't let all the cute figures pass me by.

@Qikz
Nice collection there.



Btw, need help confirm something.
Does the new Senjougahara Hitagi nendoroid bundles with Bakemonogatari PREMIUM BOX?
Any link describe that?

Mine are only in boxes because I have no where to put them at the moment. Trust me I am not happy about it.

Actually does anyone know of a small glass shelf to display lets say about 8 scale figures and a couple little figures that is not too expensive. I really want to put up my Natsume Yuujinchou collection at the very least. A detolf would be too big at the moment.

I'm in the same quandary. Open shelves are a no-go because the house cat has the delusion that it is still a kitty and fits in tiny places it doesn't. Crash bang.

So I'm trying to find a shelving system with glass doors that doesn't cost a mint fortune. So far only IKEA systems seem to fit the bill. They do have small units that affix directly to the wall.

I opened my figure in the end, I couldn't leave her sitting in there


Here are some large and rather blurry photos, thanks phone cam!

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Whilst switching her from normal to combat mode, I lost a small piece lol, I checked all over the room until I eventually found it, I was so relieved after that XD

Yup, that's correct. The order page is on Amiami and elsewhere now, and it explains some of the extras that will be included. Some images of the figure itself are on the MFC page.

Yeah, it includes three clear posters, three buttons, and a book/short story... so it's sort of a special/limited edition.

Here I am plan to buy 4 or 5 of them if its single nendoroid.
Looks like I'll just buy one and hope that 2nd-hand one will popped out later in Mandarake or YAJ with cheaper price.

That's kind of expensive for three posters and badges :/ GSC is really milking the fans here.

Good thing I already have her petite nendo, so I have no problem passing on this.

I don't think it's being published/released by GSC, but rather by the book publisher, Kodansha. They're probably in charge of both the bundle and the price.

(I would like to know just how big these clear posters are going to be, but regardless... it was a must-buy either way for me. I'm a sucker for bonus/limited goods...)

I am as well, but if the posters are only A4 size then I feel cheated... I like my posters nice and big. I'll probably get this regardless though, if I can get enough money in time for it.

A good portion of my figures are still boxed because I don't have room for both them and their boxes. This summer I plan on redoing my room and building more shelves.

This is the one I probably want the very most right now. It's gorgeous. From the paint, to the design, to the great attention to detail... I just love it.

Spoiler for Luka Megurine Tony Ver.:


These are also on my wishlist.
Spoiler for Other figures:

I had Luka, but sold her. The scale, and Tony's design just didn't fit in with my other Vocaloids. She moved really quickly, while I've had other figures I've been trying to sell for over a year. ;.; I guess people like Tony's designs.

I like it a lot. And it's the only decent Luka figure around...
