Nana's Figure Quest!

Like a few people on my f-list, I have a quest:

To collect figures of all the characters I've RPed throughout the years. This is not an easy task since I tend to lean towards minor/background/underused characters. I've been semi-fortunate for some figures, but others have surprised me with their lack of figures. So in this post, I'll be keeping track of all the stuff I manage to come across in the name of my RP collection. I'm not sure how to set it up yet, but I'm sure I'll figure something out soon. XD



Morph (Exiles) - There is ONE known figure that isn't custom, but it's this:



I'm not big on the minimates line, but when I saw that, I had to have it. Sadly, he slipped through my fingers, so I'll have to track him down.

Ky Kiske (Guilty Gear Series)

For being a main character in the GG universe, Ky has very few figures. I have his trading figure, but outside of that plus a few bust figures, he has a garage kit. Update: I now am in possession of a Ky figure. Awww yeah.

Keisuke Itonokogiri / Dick Gumshoe (Ace Attorney Series)

There are no figures of Gummy, but then again, there's a huge lack of figures from the Ace Attorney cast outside of a few trading figures. Hopefully that'll change someday.

Kazuki Kazama (Samurai Shodown Series)

Only a couple of the male Samurai Shodown cast members have figures, and Kazuki isn't one of them. But recently there's been a revival of interest in the series. Maybe I'll finally get my wish?

E. Honda (Street Fighter Series)

Oh yes, they made a Honda figure. And I own him.

Sogetsu Kazama (Samurai Shodown Series)

One of my newer muses, but like his brother, he has no figures. He does have a couple of trading cards...

Adelbert Steiner (Final Fantasy IX)

I know he has at least one figure:


It goes for about $35-$40 on ebay too. Eeeek.

Minoriko Aki (Touhou Project)

She's had a few garage kits and cell phone charms, but no official figure. I would say it's because of her stage one status, but there's a Nazrin. NO EXCUSES.

Update:
Griffon's adapting a garage kit of the Aki Sisters. Hell yes. And then we never heard from it again. B'oh.

Sie Kensou (King of Fighters)

There's a trading figure of his KoF XII/XIII incarnation, but I kind of want one from his earlier KoF days. Ideally, I want an action figure like the new D-Arts Terry Bogard.

Venom (Guilty Gear Series)

My favorite character needs a proper figure. As of this post, he has a trading figure and that's it. At least I bought him the moment he was released.

And unless figure designers begin to invade my brain, I'll settle for fanart of my AU incarnations of him.

Rose (Street Fighter Series)

She deserves more than a garage kit. Out of all the other Street Fighter ladies, Rose has yet to get any kind of figure. Not even a trading figure. Kotobukiya announced a Street Fighter bishoujo line, so I'm really hoping she's slated as part of it.

Ukyo Tachibana (Samurai Shodown Series)

Again, the series needs more love. If Haomaru and Genjuro get figures, so should Ukyo. Just sayin'.

Iroha (Samurai Shodown Series)

One of the few charas on my list with multiple figures. I have a couple, namely this one and this one. And I recently obtained The Queen's Gate version. My collection is complete.

Josuke Higashikata (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is not Crash)

I have his original color action figure. He's now complete with his Crazy Diamond Stand.

BLU Sniper (Team Fortress 2)

NECA is releasing a TF2 toy line, so I'm hoping they make a Sniper. Then Gaming Heads decided to announce this:



If money wasn't so tight, I'd snatch him up in a heartbeat.

Luise Meyrink (King of Fighters: Maximum Impact 2)

Like Rose, Luise is one of the few KoF ladies without any kind of figure. I'm kind of shocked too since she's perfect figure fodder.

Pet Shop (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders)

Until they make a real figure (hey if Iggy got one...), I'll have to hunt for this:



Update: STATUE LEGEND PET SHOP, meaning he's going to be awesome and expensive.

Billy Kane (Fatal Fury / King of Fighters Series)

This is a tough one. I actually have a KoF '95 figure of him (he came with a Terry Bogard and Mai Shiranui), but I really want a Billy action figure like Terry's. D-Arts, make it so!

Millia Rage (Guilty Gear Series)

I have a pretty statue of her. I wouldn't mind the action figure, but it's not a priority.

Jedah Doma (Vampire Savior / Darkstalkers Series)

I have both an action figure and a trading figure. Even better if they make a good quality figure.

Refill Sage / Raine Sage (Tales of Symphonia)

Unlike some of the other Tales installments, Symphonia mostly got trading figures. Raine wasn't one of them. The odds of her (or anyone else from the game) getting a scaled figure are slim, but you never know.

Edward "Edge" Geraldine (Final Fantasy IV)

The only figure I know of is this one:



I should hit up ebay or somewhere so I can snatch him up.

Fio Germi (Metal Slug)

A Fio figure was released last year:



She was released the same time my Hina figure came out, and I ended up choosing Hina. Apparently, she's deeply discounted at a few outlets, so I may pick her up in the future.

Adon (Street Fighter Series)

He's the surprise of my collection, since who the hell collects Adon? The answer is, I do.

Wow, that's quite an obscure list, all right. :) Good luck, nana.

Man, why DON'T they have more AA figures? I would totally love a couple lawyers for my curio! But then I suppose I should be surprised that there ever were any because lawyers.

I just need a Wild Tiger and Barnaby, that's all I really want. The list of One Piece figures I want is too long and too expensive so I'll just pretend I didn't even think of that.
