Honestly, my collection, and especially what I keep on display, has shrunk significantly since I joined here. What stays out are pretty much just my favourites now:
Figuratively Speaking 20160610

From top to bottom:
Yuki, from the glorious Yuki 7 faux spy series.
The three senior undines from Aria.
Canti (FLCL), Triela, and Team Anglerfish.

There are quite a few that are pretty new in my collection and the posters are a recent addition! (I actually just got a few more figures recently, so this picture is already out of date)

I got these two a few months ago and they're both on the list of my faves. <3

I'll defiantly take a picture of all my favorite figures together soon! Very Happy

Not technically a figure, but it turned up today, and I rather like it:
Figuratively Speaking 13501750_10154731083953465_8809589497689180414_n

One of the best things about moving is that I have been 100% able to convince myself that this is "furniture", and therefore a justifiable expense... rather than a case of acting the goat.

That rather looks like it belongs in the Chalet. Great find. Is it solid, or is there some storage inside?

If you can't put something on it or in it, it's not furniture, it's art.

P.S. The perspective fooled me at first glance: thought it was four feet tall. Smile

Well spotted. It is, in fact, exactly the same rocket as is in Jethro+Monty's Chalet (albeit there standing in to represent their adventures in Switzerland and French Guiana).

I've actually been wanting one of these things for awhile now (and by "awhile" I mean years), but haven't been able to justify the cost. The combination of the shop putting it on sale, and moving (and needing to fill a space on a side table), seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass up.

And no, it is 100% solid, so has no use other than to sit around looking like a rocket. Razz
