@ EDO: yup^^ in life everyone have their own opinion they can continue to think what they like. It is pointless to go and force them to accept your way of think ^^||

Ok i pretty angry bout this cuz they can't just understand how we as an otakus feel same as my parents or some of my non otakus friend everytime i'm going to get another new nendoroid on my hands my parents will say " Son! are u crazy look at the price i rather spend it for foods and stuff like pc or psp" and my non otakus friends will say "Yo!man are you crazy!? look at the price i rather spend it for dvds,games or ps3 well ofcourse porn dvds could be good too" and i was like ==" wth....let me explain why nendoroids or figures are expensiveFirstly.Why nendoroids or figures could be that expensive example like RM 130-148-168 or for pvc figures there will be around RM 300+ or RM 600 and as for Figmas there will be around RM 100++ my answer will beFirst.Have you ever think that the maker take how many time and hard work to make a figures?the figures quality?Try to imagine that ur the maker you spend 1 week for thinking the figure project and 3 days non-rest or little rest to make the figure and you also must make it very nice and clear for the sake of figures lover or anime fans and finally you done the figure and sell it but in the end nobody want to buy it or you just get less people to buy it......i can tell you that's a sad sad anime figure maker.they spend times,days,energy for making the figures just only for sake of figures lover and anime fans and this is what he/she get? what the hell yo that's badand also have you ever think bout the quality? YO! the quality made by PVC and good paint! that's a good expensive quality! don't just simply said it garbage! talking bout spend it for foods,psp,pc,new LCD TV or stuff like new clothe1.Foods ofcourse we need it for survive but we do eat it everyday right?== 2.PSP or PC yo that's more expensive than figures ==" they are useful i know but PC will be problem sometime and PSP too talking bout cheap i prefer figures3.LCD TV? we already have an TV a big TV!!! but still u want me to buy new tv? go to hell4.new clothes? THERES THOUSAND OF CLOTHES in my closet== and some of them i never try them on now you telling me to buy new clothes? yea right i rather spend if for my figures.so mates i'm sure you all have own hobby am i right? others have no rights to control our hobby only we ourself dothat's all i want to said hope you all understand what i meanPosted Image

Because.... money is hard to earn.Seeing one spending money on *things that do not give benefit in real life*. Thats why they will nag at us when we spend on cosplays,mangas,figures..etc.Secondly, anime is cartoon...so.. it is term, *for kids* .lol And we being so into it.. its hard for people to accept. ^^Jst my opinion .. >.<

There are lots of human living on this earth and each of them had their way of thinking. Some might like it some might not. I face this things lots of time so in the end, I just be what I wanna be and get what I love to have. Money is urs, u can get whatever thing you need and that is your own choice. My friend whom I close with now we all sharing the same common hobby. So we help each other out as much as we could. Be who u are and be what wanna be. Life is urs and if collecting firgures/nendos are ur life then just go on. As long as you know your budgets and everything. xD p/s: I myself also collect nendos <33

My parents are kinda the same XDthey refer to my figures as "toys" and usually will nag when i come back home with a new "toy"the will always give lectures to me about wasting money and simply buying items online everytime i get a new delivery..But for me I work hard for my it, i never use their money to pay for my hobby i work and use my pay to fund my purchasesSome people think what i do on being extra thrifty on food and other expenditure to fund my pre-orders is wrong but the way i look at it, some people like to eat gourmet food and spend their money on that, i like figures so i spend my money on that I don't see anything wrong about letting your ownself indulge in your own interest. As long as what ur doing does not harm urself or others I don't see anything wrong with it. Deciding to scrooge alittle on other expenses to obtain what you like is not a crime it just shows how much u love what u love...In fact call me crazy but i actually think part of the fun/enjoyment i get when i look at my figurines is the fact tht I saved/worked my butt off to get them. It makes me appreciate/cherish them much more.^^p/s: I'm a non-otaku and my next target is a DD ^^;; that is gonna cost alot more hahaha

Food: What food is require high cost that can be compare to figure? McD?KFC? Typical western food? Haegan daz? Baskin Robins and etc etc? in the end you're only invite chronic disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack. In the end you're paying more for your medical fee dont you?PSP or PC: -Worth nothing after 10 years-possible virus infection-possibly get long term constipation for sitting too long(medical fee again aih)LCD TV-Same reason aboveClothes-are you a women?

-Sigh- Everytime i bought a new figure.. I must hide them in my room without getting noticed and after a month i'll take out two because My family has the same problem as you do... They will say :1. Why are you wasting money on those GARBAGE as they on can be used for DISPLAY and not helping you on anything.. 2. Its best that you spend them on Food / PC / PSP and imagine if you saved up the cash and STOP buying figures then you will THANK ME for helping you.3. If I were you I rather spend on useful stuffs other than those garbage you had and placing these useless stuffs all over the room to collect dustWELL, HERE'S MY REASON :For comment No. 1 : When I heard they called my collections / figures as GARBAGE... I got fed up within 2 seconds.. no kidding. Eventhough it doesn't help me on anything.. at least they are one of my favourite hobby collection.. Unlike you buying branded cosmetics / bags / purse etc... I'll say its also garbage its only because of the quality but its still BAGS / PURSE.. Just like figures.For comment No. 2 : Yeah right... Like I care if i spend them on PC / PSP as they will have their price dropped as always and kept on releasing latest ones and kept on producing those non-stop. As our figures will stop producing anytime any day..For Comment No. 3 : Pffftt... I would say... You got your way, I got my way of spending money... Imagine if you are an otaku and always struggling to collect those figures which is going to be super rare and expensive.. I want to see HOW you feel... The way you said that because you are not a collector and you don't understand the collector's feelings.. As we otaku were trying to save cost to get latest release figures.My last comment for them : Nobody is going to stop my way to buy figures.. As i'm not spending like a mad man but only depending on series... Not a random buyer as you think...In order to collect the figures, I have to struggle myself for lying to them said its RM 80 ~ 90 only instead of RM 100+ ~ 200+.. Or they will ground me from buying figures.. zzzzEdit : Its my own cash by the way.

@SacredThumbs up for ur comment! lol i still remember i bought another new nendo around march holidayand the nendo is Nendoroid Saber Super Movable Edition and it cost me RM 165 i have a big fight with my mom as she angry cuz she knew the price and as for me i can't lie to my mom and saying the price is RM 165.Actually i bought that nendo for my little otaku bro cuz i feel pity at him that he don't even have an original nendo(he only have 1 bootleg nendo) so i decide to bring him one original nendo.And then my mom become angry like godzilla scolding my little bro as those garbage word piss me off i defend my little bro by fighting my mom words just not long after my dad come as middle people help me escape from my mom rage now i promise my mom not to buy any nendoroid or anime figures and ofcourse i'm not that stupid to promise not to buy nendo.I have an idea lol i can't just drop them off like that i guess i had no other choice but making a fake price

you can't take the value on things and expect everyone to share the same opinions.For some people who love a certain collectibles, they would think its worth it, even if it might cost a bomb. But for those who are not into it , they would think other things else are much worth the money.so, in another word, its just a different side to a coin. Don't get so work up, instead learn to appreciate each and everyone's different preference.And you are spending your parent's money ? no ? If yes, then they have every right to feel that its not worth the money. But if you are earning your own money now, you have every right to spend it wherever you want ( as long as you does not end up in debt or huge deficits )And who says anyone who ages over 45 doesn't like animes ? thats so generalization. Don't cha knows that the anime and manga whatever comics started by someone who are much older than that age gap by now ?

the other day I read an article on a makcik complaining about ecchi figures being displayed in an action figurine shop. she said it was obviously making women look like a sexual objects. She ranted at the shopkeepers and they told her that those are for adult buyers, to her that was just an "excuse". Well, to me those figures are MEANT to look like sexual objects lol so I personally don't have problem with it. She also said that it's not our culture, not good influence for children blablabla.In this case, there's a good reason why non-otaku adults hates figurines.Also, in this case it's the shopkeepers fault for displaying those figures in public -__-

People like to talk and also comment on things that their not interested or don't like or have no knowledge on. Best is to ignore them normally though i always challenge back their words xDIf they told me that they are wasting money on firgures and figmas, i will tell them back that they are are also wasting money on beer and liquor or any entertainment stuff. If they say it is different, i will say that it is the same as both oso give us the feel of happiness. The only differences i always put infront of them is, Firgures and Figmas are there and forever with us unless something rough happen. Beer, Liquor, Karaoke, Clubbing all but temporary that only last a few hours and all are quiet later. So....financially speaking, aren't they the same? Both oso required the same amount of money. Usually the conversation will end they saying "man, this guy is nuts". Guess most people just refused to understand ^^"My mom used to disagree with my hobby and do rant abit from time to time, however i always asked her back a question, "ok, if you don't like me to watch anime, read manga, collect firgures and play games. Would you rather me to go on car racing, clubbing, beer and girls?". She won't answer me already after that. I know that it is quite rude to speak to our parents like that but sometimes, we have no choice but to show them our passion and reason why we love our hobby so much. A comparison is what people always use on us so..why not we use back on them? Being silent is golden sometimes but not always.Just sharing my experience dealing with adults or friends who are anti-otaku, i believe i will face more in the future~

Agreed! But It's gonna be worse in my case. I just LOOK at the figurines displayed in shops and they'll be all:" Why The Hell Are You Looking At Those ThingS??????"I'm go all:" Chill out, I'll make one myself."and I'll go on to make an excuse that I'm looking for ideas to help w my teacher's art gallery.I just don't understand why they hate them. I had 2 REMIND my mom NOT to make a comment on anything she saw at Comic Fiesta this year.BTW, Not only do they HATE figurines, They hate EVERYTHING that has connections with anime. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT????(Haiz.... Being 13-year-old is hard)

It is normal since these stuff are new and different. Just like last time people call Einstein a nerd or a geek and Uncle Lim is a crazy stupid guy who build a Resort High up in the hill. Now what they call them? Hahaha, people always like to be a follower and when something new comes up, what they do is criticize it before understanding it. Now it is happening again as it is always was. One day they will recognize our hobby. Just stay strong and continue what you enjoy as it is the most important thing in life. To be happy with what you love ^^

I slightly agree on what you say,since im a very extream otaku and every time i go to a anime shop i'll end up buying at least 4 nendoroids*note they're originals*I go berserk and yeah i'll spents lots and lots of money .Usually i'll bring a big bag to hide those stuff.I usually walk alone till one day,as usual i was alone,paying at the cashier,until suddenly my mum appears out of nowhere and said what are you buying!!?! Then i have no choice but to tell i was buying nendoroids and unfortunally at that moment,i was buying 6 nendoroids SIX! And my mum was so shocked because i paid a total of 21000 yen(RM 858) + rm 55 for magazines, posters and stuff which adds up to rm 913.Im still a student btw,but i do part time job to earn some money.My mum called my dad and both of them scolded me like shit =w=.Then they made me promise not to buy,cannot go anime shops ,blah blah blah,.That day was indeed a really bad day=w=

My mom better. She lets me cosplay anime characters that are ' role models ' . Example : Heroes , smart characters bla bla.A cosplay that she disagree on : Hell girl.Reason : U WANT TO GO TO HELL AH?Im cant collect things. Reason 1 : i misplace things easily. So i dont go wasting my money like that. Rather save the money to help parents pay off some of my collage fees.

its not wasting money,its just an expensive hobby,+ some of us can just afford the price
