How I got addicted into Figmas + the latest figmas preorders
Posted June 30, 2008on:
I think it is ok for me to say that I am officially a figma “FREAK” Every figma Max Factory has released so far including announced ones, I just can’t say “NO” to. They are addictive and its killing my wallet. >_<
When Max first announced their new line of figures called “Figma”, I remained in doubt whether it was a hit or not. There was a lot of news posted about their figma range, a couple of promo video’s featuring Yuki, their first figma but still I wasn’t convinced. Basically, what deterred me away was the visibility of the joints and mind you, I’m still not completely satisfied in getting figures with joints.
Soon afterwards, they announced figma Haruhi and considering I’m a huge fan of hers, (and I know most of you are xD) I decided to give their figma line a chance and see for my own eyes how fun they could be. Also judging by the quality from the promo pictures, she looks alright considering Max hasn’t disappointed me once in regards to quality for any figure I bought.
When she arrived at my place, I started playing with her for a minute. Then the minute turned into 30mins and then an hour has passed or maybe two but I can’t remember because I was having so much fun posing and changing her parts around, I just lost track of time. Come to think of it, I don’t even recall thinking about the joints because they are not as big and eye-catching as seen on the promo pics. (Or I was just having too much fun but that’s besides the point. xD)
Later on, they announced figma Saber and just by looking at the promo pictures, she looked amazing and the joints were barely even visible because they are blended in, in her outfit. Even though I thought the series was okay, she was a “MUST GET”, because my mind was telling me like “COME ON, THIS IS SABER IN ARMOUR VERSION, ITS NOT LIKE YOU WILL FIND ONE ANYDAY” and then I listened to my mind and got it and WOW, I’m not a bit disappointed at all.
Later on, as each figma was announced every month, I got excited and just looking at the pictures, I can imagine how much fun posing them can be.
So there you have it, my short story into how I got addicted into figmas. All it took was one chance and now I’m hooked. xD
