The most idiotic things I read on MyFigureCollection
I tend to just use that site to keep track of my things, sometimes I do post some blogs, but do to people knowing that I do work with recasts, I sometimes get bullied or insulted by other crazy people on that site, as they condemn everyone who purchase “bootlegs”, I’m not going to go into details of legality, I have already given my opinion and reason for working with recasts, I don’t feel I need to repeat myself, so I tend to just no post anything anymore as people are such jack asses and jerks over there that I wonder how is someone suppose to get along with other so called collectors if they are only bashing someone for just wanting to buy something regardless of it’s origin.
Since I know posting this on their blog section will probably get me bashed and attacked, I’ll take the liberty to write it on my personal blog, why? because freedom of speech, that’s why.
As of lately, I’ve been reading some very ridicules blogs from people, some were funny but some just made me lose a bit of hope in humanity.
So many people make blogs about age, they’re all freaked out about being too old or too young to be collecting, just because their friends or family tell them “they should stop the hobby” or reading about other people their age saying that they stopped collecting because it was “immature”, these people can’t think or feel for themselves, they’re always worried about what other people say or think about what they like, and these are not just kids, these are people almost in their 30’s, with an age like that, his logic and reasoning surprises me, and this topic comes up almost on a daily bases, IT’S STUPID! How can you let other people dictate what you’re suppose to like, buy or enjoy? I’ve been collecting figures since I was 16 and now at 30, I don’t even think of “oh… I might just stop when I turn 40” WTF???!!! these people have no place collecting if the opinions of other people affect them so much.
Every day I see people crying and throwing tantrums like a little kid when they see a new entry posted of a figure that looks really awesome, but it’s a GK, these collector bastards are always getting a shit ton of PVC figures every month, the grand majority of them don’t even have a GK counterpart, not content with that, they have go and rant on the entry: “why did it have to be a GK”… why? WHY NOT?! these people think that GK builders don’t deserve such figures for our enjoyment, it pisses me off every time I see someone cry about it, they cry for a Saber… a Saber!!! one of the most exploited characters turned figure, she has tons and tons of prepainted figures available, yet they bitch and moan about that particular one…. PVC collector logic… gotta love it.
The rants about not having money to pay for their preorders… really? these people have such poor money organization that they preorder on impulse, and they admit to doing it, yet here they are crying and ranting about not having money to pay the order, or having the order canceled by the store for non payment, really? To me, these people are so irresponsible, how can you order so many things and not think about the money you’ll have to pay later, it’s idiotic how these people want to look like they’re suffering, to me, they’re just irresponsible people who should not have access to purchase figures if they don’t have the money, they look ridicules posting those blogs, if I knew that my rent was due in 2 weeks, I would not go on a shopping rampage just because it was on sale or because they really liked the figure.
The “My parents don’t understand my hobby” or “My parents want me to stop collecting”, dear god, most of these people are already 23 years old and they still let their parents rule over their lives, if they’re unhappy because their parents “don’t understand them” they should either move out or talk seriously to their parents and tell them to back off, it might sound harsh, but at that age, these people are already adults, they should act like it and stop crying over their parents telling them what to do. I was fortunate to never have to experience that situation in life, I left home when I was just 17 and been living by myself ever since.
The endless “xxx store preorder question” so many people post again and again the same damn question for shipping, prices or whatever regarding their order for whatever store, instead of doing a search and read a little, no, they have to post the same question that has already been answered before countless times. These people are lazy and want everything in their mouths.
The guys that’s always posting the same “figure market poll” I’m not going to go into details, it’s just a dumb blog post asking people to guess what price will a figure have in X amount of time…. it’s starting to tick me off.
The guy that’s always posting the “which Figure of this Character is better” again, another annoying person posting the same blog over and over, just asking about what’s the best figure for X character….
It’s because of all this, that I have little respect for these collectors… and it’s because of this, that I restrain myself from reading stupid and annoying blogs about pointless things….
Thank you for reading if you came this far.
You deserve a cookie 🙂
