Froggy-kun over at Fantastic Memes wrote a post the other day asking “Anime Figurines – Are They Worth It?” My answer, as it is to most questions, is “it depends.” Many of the downsides are pretty obvious – they’re expensive, they take up space, they don’t really do much, they can be fragile, the list goes on. So what’s the appeal of it? Why do people even buy figures at all? I, as far as I am down the so-called “slippery slope” of figure-buying, still occasionally find myself looking at my shelf full of figures and asking myself what I’m doing with my life. Why am I even spending my hard-earned money on all these useless things? Here are a few of the things I tell myself in response.
