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.
