I have been collecting figurines for a very long time. I don’t collect as much as I used to due to the increase of responsibility after marriage. I still buy a figurine if I really want it. In the past I used to buy figurines of the games that I play at that time, but now I only buy the ones I really love. Collecting figurines is an expensive hobby, but for me it is totally worth it. Once the item is discontinued, the prices increase like crazy on eBay. I see it as a hobby plus an asset that will always be valuable. Some figurine prices increased more than 6-7 times within 3-4 years. Until now there is no way of knowing which figurine will be very popular and will increase in value. For example with Legend of Zelda, some figurines were very popular and some weren’t. One of the brands I collect is Tsume Art, and I was really happy yesterday when I saw Ufff selling them. The one that sold out immediately was All Might United States of Smash and I was surprised to see it available for sale, because Tsume Art website sold out a long time ago, and it is a minimum of 600 KD for product and shipping if bought from eBay. Kuwait prices for rare figurines is one of the best, because people don’t look at the current value of the figurine on eBay. Basically we have our own pricing here in Kuwait.
Ufff surprised everyone when they opened their first store in Al Kout Mall. It is the perfect mall to open such a store, because it makes it more exciting. I can’t believe how Ufff expanded from a website to a store in one of Kuwait most popular malls in a very short time. What I like about Ufff is that they keep getting the most interesting brands to sell and distribute. I got a message from my nephew asking me about Ufff store, and I didn’t know how he knew about it. He told me that his cousins went to Al Kout Mall and they all took pictures of the store and shared it on social media. They had a big frame of a Funko where people take a picture of and share it online. It was a very creative idea to keep people engaged with the brand.
My favorite products in Ufff is their mugs, and if you see them in stock. Make sure you purchase them fast before they sell out. This is one of my favorite mugs, and I can’t wait for more Legend of Zelda mugs by Paladone.
