Back to Blog 5 – Figure Collection – Expensive Hobby

ok, 2 words – cost alot

I started ordering, or kind of hook back into the world of figure collection, i used to be a avid Gundam collector, i cant afford those Gundam back in my school days, so, when i get into the work force, i bought myself some sturdy gundam figures, Master Grades, plenty of them and one of them Perfect grade.

Being perfect grade literally means RM750, expensive right?

Ok, so i stopped purchase these toys back then, when i felt that this hobby really burned my wallet some holes. Big holes.

Then 2 months back, i fall into the hobby once again, this time round, not Gundams but some pretty lady figures. Boa Hancock, ok, i assume you dunno who is she, she is one of the character, in the japanese hit manga, anime, One Piece. Now, sounds familiar? If no, fine. It’s a figure.

The real point is, then i bump into the released of Hot Toys jack Sparrow 12 inch figures, Iron man, Superman, by the end of the day, i preorder goods over RM2000, merely figures.

But hey, its not all spending, i look at them as a sort of investment, especially those 12 inch Hot Toys, i bet on its resell value to some gain in the future.

But hey, wait until i tell u my newest hobby, then you will understand why i kind of stop buying figures these days.


Coffeenottea Operational – I’m back and gonna start with a BANG!

It’s been little more than half a year since i last blogged a post. Time really does flies. I’m started to revamp the blog a little bit this time round, giving it more content, more attention, and more updates.

As always, the blog will continue to blog about World of Warcraft, however, instead of blogging about the US server, which pretty much where i used to play. Now u probably see me quoting “used to play”. Ya i’m now playing WOW Taiwan instead. Switched to WOW Taiwan before the Cataclysm, alot of stuff and progression going on, which i’m happy to share with any reader who stumble upon this blog. Edit: yes, i covered about the switch to WOW Taiwan before i stop blogging like half a year ago. No harm mentioning again tho.

Now, beside World of Warcraft, i probably gonna start covering another up and coming exciting games by EA – Bioware, an intellectual property that we all familiar with – Drum roll…. Star Wars – The Old Republic. Now, The game is still in its early / closed beta. There is no firm release date yet. But day by day, it’s getting closer and closer to the D-day of potentially a game release that may change / revolutionize the whole MMORPG industry.

Also, as always, i will cover two of my favorite / support football team – Arsenal FC and Leeds United FC. An pretty eventful campaign for year 2010-2011, both ironically started well, but failed to impress and sustain, and the rest is disappointed.

Last but not least, i managed to zoom into 2 new hobbies, one being photography and the second being Figures collection. Well, both of this hobbies cost me fortune and i am in a difficult position to juggle priority between the two.

I’m gonna stop here for now, and i’m gonna write on each of the topics above soon. Welcome back, yup, its for me. Welcome back indeed.
