Happy New Year, MFC Friends & Neighbors!
I hope that you’ve all had a fantastic holiday season! My family and I are spending a last lazy day before the real world steps in again and slaps us across the face at 6am tomorrow morning! lol. Gotta admit it, though … I’m looking forward to having the house back to myself. I love Christmas break with the kids, but I get almost nothing accomplished (too much playing). So, it’s back to the grind tomorrow.

The Purpose Behind This Post
As I’ve been awaiting the next figure purchase, I went through my database and pulled what I like to think of as my Top 10 Most Wanted figures from the ever-growing number of entries. While this process was entertaining from a “what do I want to see in my display next” aspect, I also realized that I was looking at the figures from a perspective of “what do I want to review?” and “what do my MFC friends want to see?” This led to the notion that if I shared my Top 10, I might get some good feedback from people who have already purchased the figures (might get some pros and cons). It also made me curious to know what figures other collectors are looking forward to adding to their shelves.

I realize that for most of us, the concept of the Top 10 is pretty fluid – it’s based on cash-flow and availability, and sometimes swaps can happen on a daily basis. What I’m interested in are the figures that you’d purchase if money and timing weren’t an issue – if you walked into a store that had EVERYTHING at a price you could afford, what are the 10 figures that would go into your cart first?

With that said, here we go …

My current Top 10 Most Wanted:

1. Takao
Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova - Takao - 1/8 (Ques Q) -- ITEM #167032
Reason: I love this character, and this particular figure really shows off her sass and confidence. Along with her long legs, gorgeous hair, and flirty skirt, the colors are a powerful draw for me.

2. Inori
Guilty Crown - Yuzuriha Inori - 1/8 (Good Smile Company) -- ITEM #78618
Reason: I know nothing about this character or the content from which she is derived, but I have loved the flow of this figure since the first time I saw it. The movement and pose are so feminine, and there is a longing look in her face that makes me so curious to know where she’s going and what she hopes to find when she gets there. Love the pink hair and fiery colors throughout.

3. Mistral Nereis
Shining Hearts - Mistral Nereis - 1/7 - Swimsuit ver. (Max Factory) -- ITEM #153426
Reason: Again, I don’t know the character or her origin story, but this pose, combined with an absolutely gorgeous sculpt of the female form is just phenomenal. I like it with and without the skirt, so I’m not sure how I would display it if the day comes when she joins my collection.

4. Mei Raiden
Houkai 3rd - Mei Raiden Eternally Pure ver. 1/8 Complete Figure – figure not available through MFC
Reason: To my eyes, this is probably the most beautiful, most feminine, most alluring figure I’ve ever seen. Knowing that Myethos isn’t fully supported by MFC makes this one a bit more difficult to find, and the price point is already quite high, but I’ll have it on the list until I have it on the shelf.

5. Scáthach
Fate/Grand Order - Scáthach - 1/7 - Assassin (PLUM) -- ITEM #549342
Reason: As one of her other figures is already a favorite in my collection, I love this figure’s movement, coloring, and attitude. I’m not a huge fan of the swimsuit figures, but this one feels very James Bondian, and the flare of her hair is really nice, so it goes on my Top 10.

6. Luka
Vocaloid - Megurine Luka - 1/7 - Tony ver. (Max Factory) -- ITEM #72522
Reason: This Top 10 pick is all about the colors, textures, and overall pose of the figure. The depths of the various browns, combined with the translucent pink hair are such an interesting combination that I can’t help but take notice each time this figure pops up. I love the gold trim, and the raw feminine power presented.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2014/08/23/1081293.jpeg
7. Miku
GOOD SMILE Racing - Vocaloid - Hatsune Miku - 1/8 - Racing 2014 (Good Smile Company) -- ITEM #198541
Reason: I know that this figure has been plagued with problems almost from its release, but I just don’t care – it’s gorgeous. From the wonderfully feminine figure, to the flighty pose (as if in mid-air), to the color and shape of her hair, this figure has always impressed me.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2017/10/20/1849710.jpeg
8. Jin Lian
Original Character - Skytube Premium - T2 Art☆Girls - Jin-Lian - 1/6 (Alphamax) -- ITEM #548307
Reason: I definitely appreciate the skills of those at SkyTube who can create such sensuality in their figures. This figure, though, is one that I would probably always display in its most modest form as I think that it’s one of the most beautiful dresses on a figure that I’ve seen. I love how it slopes on the body – not to mention the sculpt of the female figure beneath. This figure has everything – allure in the face, curves in the body, and a mystique that is quite powerful.

9. Sakura Yae
Houkai 3rd Sakura Yae Chinese Dress Ver. 1/8 Complete Figure – figure not available through MFC
Reason: This is another Myethos figure that you won’t find on MFC, but it grabbed my attention from the first moment I saw it. I love the colors, the legs, the ears … everything..

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/01/28/2141396.jpeg
10. Mizugi Shoujo
Original Character - Mizugi Shoujo - 1/6 (Lechery) -- ITEM #740523
Reason: I’m not always a fan of seated figures, but this one knocked my socks off when I saw it for the first time. I love the angle of her legs, and the casual manner in which she’s sitting, without it being a typical seated pose. There’s a lot of feminine quality to the figure, as well as a lot of mystery in her face and eyes. I could go for either this version or the topless version – whichever popped up first.

So there you have it … my current Top 10! By tomorrow, there will probably be a replacement or two, but who knows, there also might be an incredible deal that pops up and I’ll have to dig deep into the wallet to make a purchase happen.

If there are any issues with the figures listed above that you think might sway me away from them (quality-wise, etc.), please share. I’d like to know as much as I can about each purchase before it’s made. And feel free to share your Top 10 in the comments – I’d love to check out what you all have in your sights!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you have a fantastic week!

D_A_R7 måneder siden#73397377I'm usually not a fan of bunny ears, but that Sakura Yae statue looks amazing. I don't know anything about the character, but I might have to do some research and maybe add it to my want-list as well.

I agree completely! I’m not a fan of most bunny figures as they end up looking almost desperate in their sensuality. Not this one, though! She looks elegant and classy and sensual!

61657 måneder siden#73315155I can't speak for the others, but I do own the Miku. Her body sculpt is really nice (especially the exposed bit of her back and her butt haha), the tightness of her leotard thingy and her tights/boots is well-depicted by the sculpt, and I love the gradation and sculpt of her hair. Her gloves are also really cute and make me think of little grabby lemur hands lol. My personal gripes about this figure are that her skin runs a bit yellow-ish compared to other figures, and her turbine (which the seller had accidentally broken off (so I was able to get her for $80)) was impossible to glue back on, so I ended up just perching it on the thing at her hip. I would definitely be careful about handling the turbines.
Thanks for the comments and the additional info about the turbines. It's unfortunate that the figure went into production without better quality control, but at least we know about the problem and can do our best to avoid undue stress to the delicate areas.

LittlePisces7 måneder siden#73304511I have a hard time voting between Mei Raiden and Sakura Yae. Mei has that elegant look and pose. She looks so classy! While Yae has a unique base and backdrop. I love the fabric draping over the branch and I am a fan of flower-themed bases.

I agree completely. These two figures appear to be on a level all to their own. So beautiful!!
