A popular thread over at the Vocaforum (but then those guys & gals are crazy for figure collecting). So. Feel free to share your recent and not-so-recent aquisitions.

A-like so:

My newest arrivals -- Taiga Aisaka in repose (the ONLY time anyone will see her smiling)

... and (just yesterday) Panty and Stocking nendoroids

This one was hard to get.

(And is still causing me trouble even after landing on my doorstep)

The last of my pre-orders (before the hospitalization last April)

Behold! The official mascot of the 2011 Sapporo Winter Festival:
Snow Miku

She comes with several accessories, including a little snowman (with a "hachune" expression on his face). Hmm. Now, where did that snowman go ....

Uh oh! :police:

Looks like Panty's got him cornered. :police:

It was VERY HARD to get. I had to pre-order through HongKong (with a hefty price penalty), worrying that I might get screwed (HK has a reputation). The figure was correct but the retailer had trouble making my perfectly-good credit card work for them.

Price listed there is 8190 yen which would be about $105.
I got it for about $73 plus about $25 for shipping. So even with shipping it was less than that listed yen price. xP

Depends how much you like Lum and how much you like figures. She's definitely a nice size and has decent detail and doesn't feel cheap, though the lightning could be a bit better. I like using figures as drawing aids so they're always useful to me whether they're amazing or not and I just like looking at them. xP
I think it's decent, though probably should be slightly less expensive. The problem with Lum is it's hard to tell detail because there's not much to her wardrobe. The hair and the face is the only part that has much substance and those were done really well on the figure and the rest was done well too, but it's just the typically tiger bikini. Sorry if this is a bit rambly and not helpful at all. ror (ror = Engrish lol)

She's cute when she's angry.

My other Lum is smiling though so I have both. xD

I don't find Lum to be cute when she's angry. She's just hot. xD
