I've never cried but I remember squealing with joy and bouncing in my seat when the Yuuri Katsuki nendoroid was announced. I Had such a happy experience with my friends watching the series together. It was the first Anime that I had to wait (impatiently) for each new episode since I usually get into a series wayyy after its finished. So when out of nowhere they announced him I was so incredibly happy! Especially since the series wasn't even over yet when he was announced. I almost exploded with joy when they announced Victor and Yurio.

I get sad when i think of my favorite figure, my mind always goes to thinking about loosing her to a fire or breaking her somehow... thats one less of my favorite figure in the world, and many other that have been broken, only used copies would remain. I want her to be pristine forever :/ but i also want to play with her

Interesting subject.
I personally sometimes have moments where I have many different emotions. It can be joy from opening a new package, sadness from missing out on a figure/item or anything else. The worse feeling is probably when an item I wanted is sold out, then it will be stuck in my head for a while, even with the fact that I might not find it again (soon).

The only time when I get emotional over the figures/items I own is mostly nostalgia (flashbacks).
My account and collection is mostly based on Dead Or Alive and preferably the character Kasumi. My personality matches hers too. But when I think back of the "good times" from DOA around 2001, I can get emotional. Kind of the same with the Tekken series actually, but slightly less.
Another one is Hatsune Miku, when I grew up with it since about 2009. Listening the music and watching concerts online, I remember I was so excited and it even makes me think of all the other things of that time and how nice it was. It even was the era of my favorite animes like K-On!, BRS, Fate, etc. It triggered my figure collecting too.

When I look at items specifically, then they are the items I bought on my vacation trips.
I have a lot of items I bought in Japan last year 2016, but item #186113 was special to me. I've been to a lot of shops in Akihabara to find it and it was a fun journey too. In the end, out all all the shops only 2 were selling this figure and I was really happy to get it after all. I have some items with a similar feeling like that from Hong Kong and Indonesia from the past years too.
My Dollfie Dream dolls (like item #172745) mean a lot to me too, since I have a bigger love for them than figures, they feel very special to me and it was a literal journey in Japan and journey online to be able to get them, financially it was hard to, since they're not cheap at all.
Of course it are not just the figure and merchandise that give emotions, it's also the life situation from the past, animes I watched, old MFC times, friends and more that put up the entire picture translated into feelings. Emotions that are still there, but memories that are only left. Luckily the future will still bring good times.

It's interesting topic :D And hello there another fellow Madoka enthusiast! <3
Tbh I've never cried over figure but when I look at my collection it makes me feel happy and satisfied. Especially item #80278 - she's my favourite since I got her~ She's small and cute and always brings me joy when I look at her :3

I had a situation where I fell over a step stool and that caused my to break my Clank on my Gaming Heads Ratchet and Clank statue. That has been a top favorite of mine for a long time. I actually got so upset I started hitting my knee and grabbed my hair. But after I vented out that frustration, I proceeded to repair it as best I could. Life is suffering. Life is pain. But it is only through pain we come to understand what pleasure is. Embrace the darkness so you can see the light. Something something deep meaningful quote things.

Figure collecting has always been an emotional roller coaster for me lol. Whenever I'm bored (actually everyday) I like to see whats upcoming and that really puts a smile to my face when I can look forward to some. Getting my first scale figure item #4786 was like my leap of faith and it really took alot of bravery to get her. Her beauty was stunning when I first saw her in her unboxed glory and it was an impression that really changed me. (Due to both the detail of figures and she cost 3 months of my pocket money then)

On the bad side, damaging my figures always make my heart skip a beat. I once dropped item #56604 when trying to clean her. It made me really depressed coz i had to leave the country the following week and had no time to repair her broken parts.

The other part of figure collecting I dread might be something others might have faced before: shipping. I was heartbroken when my local distributors told me they lost the license to Native, refunding me my deposit when they could no longer bring in item #117973 on the month of her release. Meanwhile Im having a big issue over a private proxy over item #397024. After she was delayed (still no news when she's coming) a local proxy who I used kind of closed down his business with all our money. It really made me depressed this month coz i just lost my part time job and knowing i might not get her or my money back is really alot to swallow.

i have a lot of pretty rare and hard to find figures and if anything happened to one of those that would be otherwise no longer found anywhere i would 100% cry, even if it was someone else's fault and i got reimbursed for what i paid for it, it wouldnt matter because i wouldnt be able to get a replacement. examples would be like
item #54151
item #33535
item #20854
item #10417

Closest time I ever got to crying was when my cat broke like 3 or 4 figures over the course of a month or two, and I was upset at the fact I was going to have to kill her. Luckily she stopped and we're still happily living together lol.

Lol that last part dude XDDD

The one time when I really (and totally embarrassingly) got emotional over a fig was in April of this year while being in Japan. It was my birthday and I intended to get item #442014 from the Mugiwara store, which I had seen there a couple of days earlier. I had intended to get him while in Tokyo because I had missed his pre-order and he had gotten so expensive everywhere with shipping and taxes included, so I hoped to snag him in the motherland and spare me the shipping and such.

And indeed I found him and for such a nice price at that and decided to make him my personal birthday present to myself XD - just to find that 3 days later, when I went to get him, he was sold out at the Shibuya Mugiwara store X_X I have no idea why, but I was so heartbroken XD And so angry at myself that I just didn't get him the day I saw him and that I decided to wait for the day of my b'day... so stupid >.< My boyfriend tried to cheer me up and asked the staff if they still had stock - no luck unfortunately.

But since we wanted to spend the evening of my birthday on top of the Tokyo Tower, he proposed to check the Mugiwara Store over there if they possibly still had a Law figure left... and yeah, guess what, of course they did and I still got my copy after all XD I was extremely happy but I felt like such a brat for making such a fuss about it in the first place though XDDD

I always thought about my figure collection when i left my home longer than I usually being, such as travel far away. I would worry if the summer heat would affect them or the dust would settle on them since no one will be cleaning my shelf when I am away.

I love reading these comments they're so interesting!

I've never cried but I'm the type of person that will get emotionally attached to items, so I have a difficult time trying to sell them (My miku nendoroids specifically because I grew up with miku since elementary school). I feel like they're just sitting there like, "You don't love me anymore?:("
It kills me haha

I feel like sometimes figures entice emotions because of the series they're from.
For me I always felt sad and heartbroken yet happy by this figure: item #331633
The pose is cute but seeing all the little details and the character in general elicits those emotions from me because they bring back memories (no pun) of those moments within the show.
(Especially that Ferris Wheel in the background of the box omg..)

Cry? Hell no. Regret missing out on a preorder? Oh hell yeah...

Figures really only bring 2 emotions for me. The first is when they make their initial arrival and I'm incredibly excited. Opening the giant box. Taking pictures of them at every angle and sometimes posing them if they're a Nendo. Then that wears off and I go into nostalgia mode. I'll glance over and look at the collection as a whole, or I'll walk up and focus on a certain group or character and be reminded of why I love them, and memories of the show or story or some good fanart pops in my head making me smile from ear to ear.

Closest time I ever got to crying was when my cat broke like 3 or 4 figures over the course of a month or two, and I was upset at the fact I was going to have to kill her. Luckily she stopped and we're still happily living together lol.

I get really happy when I get a new figure and figuratively have tears of sorrow if I accidentally break a figure. While I do not get super emotional over figures, I do get emotionally invested in the stories in anime, video games, and visual novels.

Whenever I have a new figure arrive I always get super excited where I'm almost jumping up and down lol. I don't think I've ever cried over a figure except one time I had a nendoroid arrive with a snapped neck and I was completely heartbroken, I cried really hard and I'm still trying to fix it ;-; I do get emotional looking at some of my figures like item #39543 sits on my desk so whenever I'm doing homework it's nice having yutaka there almost like she's cheering me on with her soft smile :3
