I spend an average of about 300 SGD (200+USD) per month. My largest single spending on figures was some where around 1200 - 1500 SGD (800 - 1000 USD).

I've been cutting down and limiting myself to Maxfactory and Goodsmile Company, which are insane at releasing new products.

As far as display cases go I actually got mine from a store that was going out of business and liquidating everything. Not a case that they were selling, an actual store display case. It's huge and given the circumstances it only cost just over $100. Not exactly an option you'd commonly come across but if you have a place shutting down near you you could take a look.
Ah, lovely. /sarcasm. I've gotten all of my TL preorders in just fine up until this one, so I'm pretty miffed at this, and am hopeful that my other preorders will be alright, though I don't trust it. I'm completely done with them as well. All my preorders that I have with them were made before crap started happening, but now? Never again. I'll suck it up and pay for EMS shipping at Hobby Search.

Which, including the rather expensive EMS shipping, will still probably be less than the base price for preordering a figure from an American based company.

I tend to only really spend $500-$600 a year on figurines.
Yeah he certainly has a collection. I'd love to know what the numbers are there. I can't compete with that sort of collection. I now have 20 figures, with one currently on route.

I did recently calculate how much I've spent on figures since I started collecting last June. It was rather depressing. $1,743.74 CAD of which $284.08 is shipping alone. Yes I calculated out to the last penny. To top that off, I have another ~$1,000 on pre-order that will have some crazy amount of shippong on top of I'm sure.

Oh dear, I just realized I forgot to include the duty I had to pay on one item so far (Just $20, but it should be added if I'm calculating to the last penny).

This is going to be the death of me for sure...

Those K-on figures are from Alter. They look really good to bad I don't like the show, very good likeness.

If you want to see all the new figures coming out soon go to this site.

Ya the main problem about collecting those figurines is space and keeping them dust free. Not only does displaying take up space but so do the box it came in.

The space is really a problem there, in my last visit to Akiba I bought a few cages to increase the maximum of figurines I can have, on the other hand, "the dust problem" can be seen as an advantage, I have never had my room cleaner since I collect figurines!

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10011055 type of case is easily obtainable in most countries. You list New York as your location so I imagine it'd be easy to track one down; and cheaper than a single figure, even. There are a few other similar models on the ikea site that you may want to check out, but I like that one the most.

Cool i'll check it out and see if i have some spare cash, It seems like my figurines are losing color unless i am just being paranoid

Now the only problem is that i will have to go outside to get it (very hot lately)

Hopefully someone will chime in with the shipping cost on a single Nendoroid, but I figured I'd go ahead and post. I've only made one order there, which was a Nendoroid and game together. The shipping was 2800 yen.
