Introduction – Hello!



Whether you are a fellow figure collector, or someone whose interest is piqued by figures or other hobby items, welcome to Figuratively Speaking, a figure and hobby blog! This will be a space where I passionately talk about my love for figure and hobby-related items such as plushes, key chains/straps, BDs, and among other things. It’s also a space to connect with fellow fans and to give a view of the hobby to those who are not as familiar with it.

I’ve been into figure collecting for as long as I can remember. My first figures were the Mario and Link from the Figure with Scorecards series that Hasbro made in 1988.  My dad got them for my brother, but he didn’t care so much for them, so I ended up displaying them in my room instead.

I always caught myself looking at these figures from time to time while thinking “Man, this is SO COOL!” That feeling still exists within me today as I keep on collecting figures of different series that catch my love and interest. It’s that very love that I wish to convey here! I hope that you find something that’s interesting to you as you read on.

The site itself is still in early stages, so it will mostly likely change in design a little bit. As for what’s coming next, the very first figure I’ll be talking about soon is Megahouse’s Atsushi Murasakibara 1/8 scale figure. Please look forward to it!

Thank you for reading, and happy collecting!
