If not , do they cringe at your autism?
A girl/coworker saw my monster high doll collection.
She didn't say anything but she was probably silently judging me.
It was the first time in 6 years or so since a girl has been in my room.
>you will never be a cute hiki girl who covers her room in figures and everyone thinks it's cute/endearing
>tfw fucking a girl in your room filled with retro vidya, gunpla and comics/manga everywhere
>tfw fucking a girl in her room while her Eva figure collection watches
Just bang weeaboo girls. It's a win/win.
I stopped caring a couple years ago. I just act like myself in front of everyone, I don't change who I am because I'm around different people. That shits just too hard to remember what bullshit you told to which people. So by the time any girl makes it as far as my room she probably knows I'm a weeb. In fact a good 30% of the time that is exactly why they're coming over. they want to check out a show i was talking about and screw around.
Giving up being fake and a bull shittier probably was the best decision of my life.
My girlfriend buys me all my figures so no.
Picture related, two of my Christmas presents.
its not like my room is covered with hundreds of anime posters and cases and cases full of figures. I have like a 15 figures on one shelf and two wall scrolls. one of Bebop and the other of Eva. its not some crazy obsessive collection but it does tell people I like anime. Stop projecting.
>tfw a grill complemented my shinobu figure
The only girls that have been in my room have said that they don't think it's a problem. A while back a few friends had GFs over and they said my shitty grandma curtains were way bigger of a problem than my waifu shit, so I went out and bought decent curtains.
Any girl that I'd bring back after a date or something would be a weeb that would think they were cool anyway, I've long since given up on "normal" girls.
I used to have a korean gf and my mom would let her stay over in my NEET basement.
the bitch threw my touhou fumos out of bed the first time we fugged, so after I just relocated them to my desk along with my other figs and weebshit.
Now we have broken up after 8 months (she turned out to be a cheating bitch surprise surprise) my fumos are comfy back in bed with me.
women are shit tier robots, they will try and change and and mould you to there dumb standards.
You're not missing out on much by being a wizard.
implying i have girls come over. On the other hand, the only two girls i dated were more obsessed with this shit than me. I kid you not
some more collected shit on the other side of the room
It's time to give up those guns anon
I googled it and it turns out is actually a real rifle but it looks ridiculous so i thought i was just from an anime
Not surprising. You have the collection of a normalfag who wants to look nerdy. Also you have like five action figures and most are animal crossing. Nintendoposercore ect.I'm glad I don't know you
>normalfag who wants to look nerdy
I just really like nintendo
>most action figures are animal crossing
only one is animal crossing you ding dong
what the fuck does this even mean?
What on earth are you going on about?
Why do you guys build these collections? I'm legitimately asking, I can't understand the mentality behind spending the money to have anime figures and posters on display around your room. Is it because you like a character so much you want her around all the time to admire?
I do not have collectibles, nor do any women ever come over
I used to have a wall covered with random funny pics and even actual memes, I put them there when I was, like, 12 or so. Then I got people on my room often saying my wall was bizarre and took them down when I became 17 or something.
I don't collect figuring shit, though i do have a very Large collection of Nazi memorabilia (Including SA) scattered all over the room and some in my gun-safe. Flags, bayonets, paperwork, money, coins, cigars, patches, badges, etc... One of the boxes under my desk with some of my stuff. Filled with things like money, documents, and things like military identification papers (wehrpass).
No one ever knew a thing.
They get uncomfortable after they see this guy's been watching us have sex.
I wouldn't bother, but they probably would cringe since girls are cunts.
But I wonder how a man would feel walking into my room and seeing my Sailor Moon, Wesker and Naked Snake figures.
If by brown shirts you mean the sturmabteilung, then yes. And why the fuck not? when they aren't easily obtainable and are on the rare side of things.
Picture related, is one complete set of a troop's personal files. Including all his paperwork and things like bank account details, bank account paperwork, etc..
when i was growing up, my mom used to always take me over to her female friends homes, you know, older, medium aged women.
i remember seeing all kinds of collections, bro, growing up. this one lady was all frogs, as soon as you stepped up to the house, it was lilly pads and frog things everywhere.
one woman collected dolls that i was terrified of. they expected me to sleep in the same room with dolls, wtf.
this other lady collected all Coke memorabilia. i've seen stamp collections (my grandma), train collections..
what kind of idiot doesn't know about collectors, is my question.. "hur dur why do people collect shit???" wtf son, hoarding and rat packers are timeless. stop acting so naive.
>Any girl that I'd bring back after a date or something would be a weeb that would think they were cool anyway, I've long since given up on "normal" girls.
How does one get a weeb girlfriend that isn't:
Now you have enough to commit identify theft and get his pension money from merkle.
That's very cool anon, I'm a huge history nerd and this stuff looks amazing. I was asking about the brown shirts because usually people idolize the SS far above. Is the SA a unique interest of yours or do you collect lots of other nazi stuff too?
My only possession with a link to the nazis is a Mauser rifle, manufactured in Yugoslavia in the inter war period so it doesn't have any nazi marks. That means the cost is much less because skinheads aren't bidding against me, I don't feel bad using it often at the range because it's not a rare artifact, and the parts are 100% compatible with the k98 so the experience is real. It's been a lot of fun learning to take it all apart and clean it by finding original German manuals online.
I have a collection of 12 or so bobbleheads most girls know I am autistic about baseball and they dont care
I'm thinking about it, I bought some painting stuff and practice marines to see if I'd like the painting process and I actually enjoyed it. It's so expensive though, I know a place I can go to and play the game but I have a hard time dealing with new people.
>Now you have enough to commit identify theft and get his pension money from merkle.
It'd probably be only 10 euro since all of it went to Israel.
>Is the SA a unique interest of yours or do you collect lots of other nazi stuff too?
I'd say it is, though i do have lots of other Nazi stuff as well including loads of things from the wehrmacht (Military Manuals/ID's etc..).
I've got way too much shit.

I used to have a 98k ('43 BNZ) which i sold probably about 8-9 months ago. Still have a few other rifles including my good 'ol Moist nugget.
Also besides my Nazi memorabilia have lots of US memorabilia including uniforms and flags carried in battle.
Feels good man.
Get that Slaanesh worshipping pic out of here.
I don't have any collectables like that or any serious vidya merchandise aside from some pajama pants with Mario on them I got as a gift years ago, but if I did I'm sure my gf wouldn't mind. She's very robot friendly and even plays vidya with me.
Sadly this is pretty much 90% of them.
There are good ones out there but after about 23 they're pretty much all taken, only way around it is to hope that you find one who recently broke up with somebody or something.
My dad has an SA dagger somewhere in his house but hasn't seen it in ages. I've been wanting to dig it up for years.
He's anything but a fan of the Nazis, by the way, his dad brought it back as a trophy after WWII.
I have a few vidya models and some posters. four different TES maps framed and hanging on the wall in my dorm room back in college. when i lost my virginity the girl asked me "what are these maps from?" told her they were from vidya and to fuck off if she doesnt like them. Literally said, "They're maps of regions from my favorite game series, do you not like them? You can fuck off if they bother you." dated her for a year and a half after that
its not about what you have, but what you think of them. girls wont care if you show confidence in your hobbies
In uni I had a drunk at come over after a party, wasn't expecting to bring someone back but we really hit it off.
She's drunk and getting drinker sitting in my lap. Eventually she stares at something on my floor.
It's the briefcase my friend customized and spaced to hold a bunch of my yugioh decks, its sitting open with 25 decks w/ different colored sleeves in it
> is that... Guitar stuff?
Uh, yeah... Sure.
She's my gf now, a semester later.
To think I almost sent her to the shadow realm.
>girls coming over
>girls talking to me
>girls looking at me
>girls registering my existence
Implying a lot of implications
I'm so fucking done with this normie shithole
>my gf blahblah
>this cheating ex of mine blahblah
>I was fucking this girl in my bed blahblah
I'VE NEVER HAD A FRIEND, MY CAT DIED, SHE'S THE ONLY THING I LOVED, AND EVEN MY THERAPIST SAID I SHOULD KILL MYSELF
STOP FUCKING RUBBING YOUR HAPPINESS IN MY FACE
I don't go out of my way to collect things for the sake of collecting anymore. I have a fairly large comic collection, but none of which were bought for the purpose of collecting, they were books I wanted to read. I used to buy a lot of Marvel Legends and Transformers figures, but that shit is expensive and now I only buy some figures I see that I think look really great and are characters I like, so not many. I'm going to get a Kylo Ren figure soon.
I have never had a girl over to my room, but when I do it won't be an issue for me. If we're at a point in a relationship where she's coming over then we have very similar interests or she doesn't mind. If a girl was disgusted by my boxes and bookshelves of comics and few figures on my desk and shelves then I would only have to suffer temporary embarrassment, she clearly isn't a girl I'd be dating for long.
Hoarding is a bit different from collecting dumbass, take a chill pill. Anyway, hoarders often use the "I might need it someday" line to justify why they're doing it, in their mind it's a practical thing.
I obviously know *about* collectors man, otherwise I wouldn't be asking. It's the reasons behind it, putting figures on display in your house doesn't serve a practical purpose. The other anon said something about ASMR or whatever it is. Clearly, putting special objects I've bought on a shelf just does nothing for me, ergo, it's not something I can fathom which is why I asked the question.
People who see my room love my autism shit.
"Wow you sure like Hellboy huh?"
"Got enough pokemon? Did you catch them all?"
"Did you sew that doll's dress?"
"Can I play with your zoids?"
"Wait, is that tarantula alive?"
I have a figure collection for kind of stupid reasons, I guess.
One is that I enjoy the gesture of spending money on a physical object of a character I like.
I also just enjoy what it says to have them around. My waifu on my desk says "yeah, I don't give a fuck, I'm a goddamn dirty shit otaku and proud of it."
Another is honestly narcissistic as fuck, but a lot of the fun of a collection is taking pics and then posting them online to circlejerk about collections on /a/ or /jp/ or wherever.
My old ones are at home at my parents' house. The two I have in my current house are the HMM ones, so they are much more poseable but they don't move on their own. Visitors like to play with them though.
I may be in the minority but I really don't mind people playing with my toys because my visitors are adults without dirty fingers who know to ask first and be gentle.
my collection is pretty good girl repellent.
Good thing I live with my parents so it's irrelevant.
I'm 20 and I've never had a grill in my room, but I don't think I would hide my weeb loot if one was coming over. It's stuff that I like, why should I have to hide it for a girl? My collection isn't even as bad as some people's anyway since I only started this year. Just a handful of figurines (some figma), a few anime posters and a shelf stocked with 3DS games.
i have tons of cosplay/movie prop stuff but the only things i really collect are pipes and panties.
and you have to know me fairly well before you know about my pipe collection. and i would never tell a grill about my panty collection
Why even associate with people that don't respect your interests? That's what I don't get. I'd rather have no friends than constantly having to tip toe around keeping what I enjoy a secret.
I just dusted off and rearranged part of my figure collection today, and unpacked a few new ones. They're all prominently on display and even if I wanted to hide them it would be way too much work. I currently have 53 figures on display, most of them scale figures. And some nendoroids that I'm about to pack away.
And no there's never going to be any girls coming to visit here. Reee.
It's to have physical representations of characters I like, to admire the figures for their aesthetics, and to support the industry. Then there's whatever psychological mechanisms drive collectors in general, like wanting to own something that's rare.
