Being a student of art, I’ve studied the various techniques, styles and artists from the past to the present who make the unseen imagination in our individual minds come to life for the world to see. It’s always fascinated me and given me a wonderful hobby to follow ever since I was a young child.
Figures, Statues, Models, whatever you want to call them have always been my favorite above all. 2D paintings and drawings are great and I love doing both in my spare time. But nothing excites me more than seeing a physical representation, in the form of a 3D object for me to walk around, see from different angles and maybe even touch. Museums are a fantastic place to go see amazing art and once in Tokyo, Kanako and I went to the most amazing art display made of bones!
So when it comes to games, manga and animation, figures of the characters is my ultimate collectible. Back in the USA, I have several boxes full of all kinds of figures that I couldn’t bring with me here before but will someday return with me here after a visit sometime. In the meantime, I’ve been keeping my eye open for some really nice figures and so far, my collection is pretty good. Here are a few of the figures I collected in 2012!
