First, a bit of history. I only started collecting figures like six months ago. It began with action figures, as I couldn’t understand the appeal of static figurines. I had come close to buying some in the past—Wave’s Rise Kujikawa temped me for a long time but ultimately was too expensive. Then one day, I saw this elf from Lineage II, and I knew I had to have it. This figure opened to me the world of static figurines, and was basically the cause of my addiction.
