My Top 10 Figures of 2015

To All,

Happy New Year!

As 2015 draws to a close and we start welcoming 2016 with open arms, I believe it is time for me to look back at all the figures which I have purchased in 2015 and choose my top 10 of the year.

It's a very difficult decision I had to make out of all the numerous purchases I have in 2015! But I'll do my best to leave my enjoyment of the series out of the picture and focus solely on my personal enjoyment of each and every figure. The only rule I have is that the figure has to be released in 2015, whether it is a re-release or not.

Though, do note that this might not match the public's opinion, or even your very own opinion of the best figures out in 2015, since I'm merely choosing them among my collection.

Let's get down to my top 10 then!

10. Scale: Oshino Ougi from Monogatari series by Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya has always been one of my favorite figure companies when I'm looking for a base that does more than holding the figure sturdy. Kotobukiya's bases usually look as if it's part of the figure! In this aspect, I really respect how Kotobukiya has gone with Ougi and the accurate representation of Ougi. However, I wouldn't go into details on this figure as I'll be reviewing Ougi later this week!

9. Nendoroid: Hatsune Miku Harvest Moon Version from Vocaloid by Good Smile Company
I've been keeping my eye on ever since her announcement. I'm glad that I finally got my hands on her! She is illustrated by one of my favorite artists (Rella) and here's a link to her Pixiv. I have purchased several of her artbooks and I absolutely love her art style! I might do up a review for this Nendoroid sometime in the future... please let me know if you'd like to read one!

8. Scale: Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) by Kotobukiya
Granted, Ciel isn't my husbando, but how can anyone say no to this? The chess theme is one of the best Kuroshitsuji can pull off, and not to mention that it does suit the series very well. Other than the awesome sculpt and paint job which this figure has to offer, the base is the first thing which captured my attention. Oh, did I mention how much I love Kotobukiya's bases? 

7. Nendoroid: Mikazuki Munechika from Touken Ranbu by Good Smile Company
There's not much to mention about him as almost everything I want to say could easily be summarized by one picture. He's a cute male Nendoroid, and he had a re-release planned within the same year of his first release. Need I say more?

6. Scale: Dark Angel Olivia from Shingeki no Bahamut by Kotobukiya
Base aside for this Kotobukiya figure, the sculpt of her hair and wings, as well as the details of her clothes is what drew me to this figure. Also, I have a soft spot for wings and crystal bits in figures. They give me a nice fantasy world feel which make figures under this theme so beautiful to display.

5. Scale: Natsume Takashi Renewal Version from Natsume's Book of Friends (Natsume Yuujinchou) by Alter
The ambiance in this figure fits the anime and the sculpt of the base is another aspect I'm pleasantly surprised by as I'm used to Alter having bland bases. Though, I'm definitely glad I got him after he nearly doubled in price in the aftermarket. 

4. Scale: Celty Sturluson Renewal Version from Durarara!! by Alter

Her bland base is the drawback for me. I thought that with a renewal, Celty might get a better and more dynamic base. Though, I do love Alter for their details in sculpt and each individual crease in Celty's black suit surely doesn't disappoint!

3. Scale: Minami Kotori from Love Live! by Alter
Kotori's figure could very easily be my top figure of this Love Live! Alter line so far and her details and glitter parts have gotten immaculate praise from fans for her beautiful sculpt.

2. Scale: Kirisaki Chitoge from Nisekoi by Alter
I already made a review for this figure here so I don't intend to expand further but I'll mention again that she's my favorite out of all the Chitoge figures out so far.

1. Ciel Alencon from God Eater 2 by Good Smile Company
God Eater is a game series (quite similar to MonHun) which I am a fan of. When I heard Ciel had a figure, I knew that I had to get a copy for myself. She suffered many delays but the final product made me forget all those months of waiting. She looks so impressive with her God Arc!

And that concludes my top ten figures of 2015!

Also, you might notice that the majority (actually all) of my chosen figures are with Kotobukiya, Alter and Good Smile Company. This is because I do adore the works of these three companies although they might fetch quite exorbitant prices at times, especially if you are a collector new to this hobby. But if you do collect scale figures, I assure that you would get used to these prices sooner or later.

All the best with pre-orders and expanding your collection in 2016, and I look forward to sharing more reviews of my figures with all of you in this upcoming year as well!

From Your Fellow Collector,
