Here's a look at my collection as of 7/7/2008. Toy shelves are totally packed compared to last year. I still got more in storage! ^^; I'll probably run out of shelf space after buying the WonderFest 2008 Summer exclusives to add to my collection. Guess it's time to hit IKEA and get new toy shelves!
I'm cutting down on the toy lines I collect now and focus mostly on S.I.C. figures, Transformers Masterpiece, and some PVC figures, figmas, and Nendoroids that I really like.
Although I do own a complete Garo toy collection, these are the few that I plan to keep and the rest (along with extras of some of the figures) are currently in storage, waiting to be sent off to loving homes. Growing S.I.C. collection and lacking shelf space means I need to get rid of some of the stuff in my collection. I'll be listing them up for sale in the near future. Contact me if you're interested in any of the Garo figures.
Kamen Rider #1 riding on Cyclone over a pile of Kaijin corpses!
S.I.C. Kamen Rider Amazon & Jungler. My favorite Rider & bike set thus far! Got this upon release and finally brough it with me to Japan after returning home for Chinese New Year celebration this year.
This black Kikaider trading figure was a secret in the first volume of S.I.C. Takumi Damashii series. Currently going for around 3,000-4,000 yen at the hobby shops in Akihabara!
My small collection of signed figures mixed with miscellaneous stuff. Garo signed by director Keita Amemiya, Action Works Gavan signed by actor Kenji Ohba, and Voice I-doll Asuka signed by voice actress Yuuko Miyamura.
S.I.C. Kamen Rider 555 collection. Can't wait till they do Riotrooper, Psyga, and Orga!
I remembered paying 10,000 yen for S.I.C. Shadow Moon after it was released and immediately sold out everywhere. Won an auction for it and it was just 1 week later after I received the figure that a reissue for the figure was annouced to come out in a few months. ^^; I just could not wait to get my hands on the S.I.C. version of my favorite Kamen Rider villain of all time. Well, it was an exciting feeling to finally got the figure though.
GFF Shin Musha Gundam and Kiba-Musha Den figures at the back. Gotta make time to build the MG Shin Musha Gundam kit.
My small collection of old Playmates Earthworm Jim figures. I got an extra Earthworm Jim figure to repaint based on the shaded 2D artwork on the packaging. I'm still looking for Bob the Killer Goldfish & #4 set.
Poor Densuke gets violated by Shiro!
Toys soon to be piled up to the ceiling if I don't start looking for new shelves soon. I need to arrange a weekend to open up all those toys, too. They need to breathe!
S.I.C. exclusives. Pre-Amazon signed by sculptor Takayuki Takeya!
Every otaku must have a Mina Tsukishiro in their collection! ^_~
Project BM! Kamen Rider Kabuto and signed figures. TheBee signed by actor Masato Uchiyama, Gatack signed by actor Tomohito Sato, and Man Chrysalis figures signed by sculptor Yasushi Nirasawa.
More games I can't finish and lots more coming! Gah~! O_O
Mix of kits, trading figures, and magazine freebies. I seriously need to start scheduling long evenings to build these kits. Still more stored in boxes.
Man, the Rider Mask Displays sure do take up a lot of shelf space! More masks to be released in the coming months! Where's my Kamen Rider Black and Kamen Rider Kiva masks?!
