My first was the starter kit from the Mindseye Gallery in San Diego. I haven't taken the plunge into collecting a lot of Hikari, but have my eye on a few.

Pop figures have become too overwhelming for me to collect. There are just too many, and I'm quickly running out of room.

Dorbz...I bought a few, but whatever appeal they have certainly has not rubbed off on me. I can't possibly imagine myself getting into them.

Vinyl Idolz are phenomenal, but Funko seems to have all but abandoned that line. I haven't seen any new figures in what feels like ages.

So I tipped my toe into Hikari just a few days ago...and man these things are gorgeous! Why isn't there a more vocal internet fanbase surrounding them??

Image

I love how this is the old-school Iron Man armor, and I love how this seems like a collection that I can actually complete with enough patience, despite the limited numbers. Yeah, the Stealth Armor is pricey, but it's not impossible to find like some Pop grails.

Hopefully, these three are the first of many! I've been eyeing those Frankensteins now, too...

Nice Iron Man picture! Felt the same way about pops. Too many were unattainable due to retirement/price and the sheer number was daunting.

The fanbase is small but vocal. At least I am. Sadly the price point seems to be a turn off to many though I find it reasonable for the quality/size and there are some nice deals to be found online with just a slight bit of effort. Funny to me since folks seems to be lining up in droves to pay some crazy aftermarket prices on retired/exclusive pops.

Check out the eye on the web thread about Mindsoddity, they have some killer $20 Hikari deals right now with $7 flat rate shipping.

My first Hikari was the NYCC exclusive Rainbow Dash. I won it in a Funatics giveaway. I'm really good at guessing how many candy hearts are in a jar. :D
Then I bought two Jack Skellingtons right after that.

My first was the Captain America from the MCC box. I liked it more than I thought I would. I was at GS later and they had an IM Hikari for only $20 so I figured I'd pick it up so Cap had a bud. I don't see myself buying many but I am a fan of the two I have!

My first was the TMNT Leo because he was half off at B&N. I'd love to get some of the Legendary Creatures & Myths ones, but am afraid to go down that rabbit hole lol Gonna start with the Pops first and then we'll see :D

I was sad that there was no Pop Life gallery this year. It was easily one of my favorite things last year at SDCC. That Oni is one of my favorite Hikari. And thanks to Eddie I now have Garuda!

FINALLY entered the Hikari world by purchasing the Metal Storm Gigantor for $35. I'm a huge fan of Tetsujin-28/Gigantor so it's going to be hard to not go nuts and buy the other ones.

I have so many suggestions for Hikari that would make me finally buy one. But as for what we already have I'm definitely interested in a few. I just have such a pop problem...

Too bad Mindoddity shut down, they had some great clearance deals toward the end. $20, then $15 Hikari. GameStop has a few good ones on clearance right now.
