Last week I made the decision to complete my Queen’s Blade Rebellion set. This decision was based on the fact that I already had some miscellaneous Rebellion figures which were bought under the premise that they were of the normal Queen’s Blade collection, because of last weeks decision I spent some time last week trying to fill in the gaps of my regular Queen’s Blade set. So below are the Megahouse Queen’s Blade figures I am missing, the mission being to track them down this year and finally be fully up to speed with my the standard collection before moving onto Rebellion.
I started collecting Megahouse’s original Queen’s Blade figures mid last year which was quite late in terms of the release schedule, the primary reason being that I really liked (at the time) Echidna and Melona. As a result the majority of the collection gaps are the earlier figures, which after much searching are becoming rarer to find for a reasonable price. Luckily for me I have had the discipline to resist Griffon’s range of lovely Queen’s Blade figures altogether making my collecting trials (a little) easier.
Now at first glances, it does not seem like a lot of figures that need to be gathered. The reality is however that being a popular series (due to the Anime and subsequent merchandising) prices have inflated and bootlegs are now worth manufacturing, so there are added risks when picking up what seems to be a cheap deal on auction sites. Also I need to be aware of Special colour versions and Special Editions which can have different weapon sets (like Ymir). I am after just the standard figures, nothing more.
So a big mission for 2010 with lots of little mine fields to avoid but I am sure I will have fun doing it.
