The one anime figure that has tempted me in the past is Saber. Horo might be another one.

Guess I'll just leave these here (This is just my anime related stuff. If I included movies comics and video games I could take up a very long post):





















Apologies for the dust.

So many awesome figurines Mad...
Well I got one on the say. So we'll see how long this last before I might cave and get more. The real question is do I open it or leave it sealed.

Off the topic question. For those that have figurines. How do you go about controlling dust issues? I live on a main road so I have a lot of dust. I could dust today and it would be back tomorrow. Do you guys regularly clean your figs or just once in a while?

As you can see I don't get to it very often but when I do a can of compressed air and a makeup brush like this:



are usually good enough to get them cleaned up.

Compressed air is good, but you really do have to have something to wipe them down to completely get the dust off. This is what happens when I don't dust my figures regularly. Just look at those bases! Yuck!

How I keep dust off the figures since I don't have that many...



Basketball display case... have never had to dust and yet the figures and everything are in pristine condition. It's easy to remove the top shell from base and re-position the Figma if I want to.

So the top was is a Figma correct? And what is the Bandai one?

Nope the tops a Furyu PVC figure. The Bandai one is a Armor Girls Project figure which is essentially a figma. Figmas are actually relatively inexpensive compared to PVC figure. The best part about the Furyu figures is the quality for a cheaper price then Figmas and way lower then other PVC figures on the market. For example now that I have all of the Furyu Strike Witches bought for around $30 a piece I am going to move on and get the Alter Witches for over $100 a piece.

Well $30 isn't a bad price. I like the Furyu PVC it look very well made.

Nice! I remember watching Strike witches a way back when it was on Anime Network I think. I saw a couple of episodes and really dug it. Always meant to finish it. My dad and I watched it together and thought it was fun, and laughed at all the fanservice wackiness.
