Sometimes I hate my hobby

Picture taken from Futaba, I think.

On a financial level (and sometimes the fandom too, but that’s another story).
Collecting Japanese figures has gotten pretty expensive since I started ~10 years ago.
Now I’ll admit I can be quite stingy with money/be a cheapskate, but the examples below show that the prices are just getting silly in comparison to what they used to be and what you got for it.
So let’s go back a little, when yen prices were lower and the exchange rate was €1 = ¥170

The one getting wasted has a stuck leg.

So yesterday morning when I thought my dad’s car was being stolen (alarm woke me up), I bumped against the shelf when trying to look out of the window.
Bad move.

Guess I’ll do an image dump today with pictures and some loot from this month.
Much more came before that, but you can always stalk me on MFC to see my list.
More after the break, in no actual order. Just dumping, not sorting.
Favorite them/vote 5 if you like them enough.
Most pictures (excl. loot ones) should be in my MFC Album.

Alright, lootposting time.
Last time I left off with a Nendoroid invasion.
This time, it’ll be a Figma one I guess..

The pic up here is the most recent stuff, minus the AmiAmi Zero Hanyu I picked up today at the post office.. (damned taxes.. Wasted almost €60 on those this month already..)

So let’s go through the recent list and see whatever complaints or else appears..

It's a miracle that I update at all

I wonder why. Lazy? WordPress being slow/annoying? Too used to DC/Figure.fm’s sort pictures nicely and caption them gimmick?
Might be all of them.
Is there some plugin to make this stuff easier?

Anyways, good and bad news. Let’s start with the BAD.
Job Interviews are going nowhere. I’m in despair and some voice in my head is narrating like in Kaiji.
Also, back problems! The upper back/shoulder area. Quite annoying.
That was the personal bad news!

Now, the GOOD news. Well, good? The more stuff arrives, the lower the cash on my bank account goes.
Well, just continue reading the post for pictures of new lootings.
Maybe some brabble about last seasons anime if I feel like it. Let’s see where this goes.
