Probably shouldn't leave them all on at the same time;)

Glad I'm not the only one with a moderate collection, though it does seem a little dumb to have a gamecube with no games:lol:


You should go ahead and post pictures so I can know what you have. :lol:

I think the voices (original Japanese, of course) and music contribute a lot to the atmosphere of One Piece, which can only be imagined while reading the manga. And the animation quality gets much better somewhere around Thriller Bark. IMO, the series does well in keeping the epic parts epic, and the filler is actually in theme with the show, not like that "let me use the same technique without any character growth for 80 filler episodes" crap Naruto pulls. The movies are all pretty good, too:

Spoiler


Because Squarehard asked, here's my manga. Used my phone to take the pictures. I removed some so you can see that they are stacked (read: crammed) into that cheap bookshelf, all lined on the outside and shoved into the top crevices... (~220-230 volumes total, and I just bought all of Love Hina in a lowball lol)

Includes:

Then I have some 60 issues of Shonen Jump USA stored in a box in my closet.


My Manga Collection is quite small, I'm more interested in Light Novels. Haha. I don't have any series completed at all. :lol: And just have the ones that catch my fancy or I can get really cheap. However, I do plan on having all the volumes of Kimikiss and Rosario + Vampire, and maybe Dance in the Vampire Bund since those are my favorites. The other one is Stand By Youth, which only has 3 Volumes before it was discontinued. (I really enjoyed that one. >:/)

Original Xbox = On
Xbox 360 = Off
PS3 = On
PS2 = On
Gamecube = On
Wii = Off (It's lighting up is all.)

I was actually only using the PS3, but I just turned the others on for show/pictures.

As far as my Gamecube collection goes, I'm doing the best I can. I'm trying to track down AFFORDABLE complete games. I don't generally do disc-only's.#-o

haha only joshing you. I get you with the gamecube games. I've been lucky enough to store a bunch of bargains from a local store, but otherwise it's been slow going finishing off my collection. Prices have gone through the roof like crazy, which is really a shame as so many have yet to play these awesome games. If you only buy one titles, get Wind Waker. Nothing more to be said, just, get it;)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Kind of surprised to hear you say this. Most One Piece fans would agree unanimously that the manga is better. Personally I think the anime is flawed but still extremely enjoyable, as long as you have a fast-forward button and a tolerance for occasionally cringe-worthy animation. But it can't compare to the manga which is a true masterpiece. But hey, opinions. At least we can agree on Battlefront.

If you think think that opinion is surprising...I don't like One Piece in either form. Educate yourself to this reality!

Not really surprised by that at all actually. I was specifically talking about opinions among people who do like it. And even then I think I made it pretty clear I'm not going to get riled over anyone's opinion.

You've both obviously only watched the dubbed version of the show. And I'm pretty sure you've never read the manga, as that would require more effort into something you didn't like...

Oh well. I generally dislike any Funimation dubs. Naruto has an intolerable English dub, and the fillers are absolutely shit and ruin anything good about the show, so to each his own.

yes but even the terribly butchered american naruto still had its charm. one piece did not.

whether id like the uncut or manga versions who knows. im not in the business for a show that is 5445645 episodes long with no end in sight last i heard. sort of why i gave up on naruto and bleach. i swear those three shows saw the entire dragoball series and said we need more episodes than that series and set out to do it. although bleach hasnt topped it im sure naruto and one piece have by now but i maybe wrong.

Ok, gathering are recast of garage kit you can buy in Japan which is very hard to get for us not living there since you have to know someone going to one of the fest. Oh well... I wish I can get my hands on the original, but they are so limited that I won't be able to give my money to the rightful people anyway. Anyway, I actually like them quite a bit. Very detail, much better in many cases than the machine paint of PVC figures.

This sort of leads me to the real meat of my collection since you see their boxes in the above pic....

No, I do not give them personality and arrange marraige etc like Chu. They are just like supersized figma :)

Pic I took of Asuka from Evagelion. This will be the only pic you actually see it. It's safe but I understand some people are freaked out by them.

I do too. It is just easier to move. Once I am settled, I intend to have some custom wood shelving done.

and oh, I don't think any part of my game collection is really impressive. I have my interests spread too far apart. I think I do have most of the games that I want to (even remotely) play. Like most of us, I am severely limited by time thus most are still sealed.

What's the market for Japanese figures and collectables like? Do they kinda float around in value or do they appreciate? I started buying a few (well, 3) thanks to lilman's thread but I'm shocked at how expensive they are.

It's hit or miss depending on the types of figures you have purchased, and it is also dependent on what type of characters or series you are purchasing from. It just kind of depends on a lot of factors, so it's not really a yes or no kind of answer.

Sucks, right? Looks like you did a rally nice job though :applause:

I actually tried taking a bunch the other day for both insurance purposes and to post. I've never taken good enough shots so that anyone can actually see what games I have, just those panoramic and entire shelf-at-once shots. My basement is so damned dark and I don't have a tripod, so I was using a chunk of 2x4 as a monopod and holding a shop light to try and get enough light.

I ended up with about 50% usable shots, and 50% blurry mess. Gotta give it another go. Maybe I'll bring my halogen garage works lights in. They're like as bright as the sun. That should at least solve the lighthing issue :P

Your stuff is WAY too pretty to be stored like that!

I will be over shortly after completing the munnel in order to rectify this very serious video game collection display faux pas. I'm envisioning very simple cherry and birch frame with lots of glass and a handful of one-off door pull knobs in a variety of designs appropriate to your collection. LOTS. That stuff needs to shine!

Shit, if I ever get sick of making gameboys and such, I'm gonna start building seriously custom display cases for collectors. I could do that all day long!

I mean, that's a superb collection (more insane than Square's) but am I the only one who really, really hates wire racks? They make everything look so tacky...


Hate can't begin to describe my feelings for them :(

I use them to house my shipping supplies and even that irks me, though it's about the most appropriate use I can find for them since all the scraps and little bits of cutoff mess that I make fall through to the floor for easy cleanup.


Maybe I'll go snap those pics...

I actually enjoy both Naruto and One Piece's current dubs.

I enjoy One Piece well enough, but not enough to actually spend money on it. Oda tends to pack in too much wackiness for my tastes. Impel Down and the Rescue Ace arcs were just a mess to get through in the manga. That, and Luffy just plain gets on my nerves at times.

All collecting is like that to varying degrees. Some things become rare and valuable, others stay the same price forever or depreciate immensely. There are factors you can use to try and predict what will happen (for example the Samus and Link Figma reissues were fairly obvious) but overall it can be a crapshoot. I am not a huge collector, most of the stuff I buy is under $30, but I follow the figure "scene" decently closely and I've seen it all.

Just one example, last year I bought a MGS Solid Snake Play Arts Kai for 4000 yen and passed on a Gray Fox for the same price. Now they're each worth well over 20,000 yen and I will probably never get my hands on that cyborg ninja. But as we've seen with Figma Samus it can go both ways.

They are also starting to rerelease figures now (tho just the super popular ones like Saber and a few others like Momohime from Muramasa).

Generally I think they hold their value better.

DD prices also became more stabilized recently... They easily hold their value +, but there were time that things were going crazy, 4k+ for what was originallly a $800 release.

Just checked prices on the Metal Build gundam seven swords... originaly $200ish shipped

http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B004A15JG0/

ebay listed prices is even higher.

This is their "special". was LE. I got it for $400 locally, listed for crazy amount.

http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B006DRPCJI/

There are just too many products out, weird little thing can become valuable. a DD (Yuki) was actually not very popular before, people thought her face look too generic. A post by Danny Choo pretty much sent her prices skyward, 3-4 X easy. She is actually one of my wants... just can't bring myself to it.

her original listing

ebay listing: selling price obvious different, but that varies a lot based on too many condition.
