Carol spends her days writing, browsing collectible toys, and sourcing the rarest and most unique collections for a few clients she kept on board. She was a 17-year-old who couldn’t wait to combine two wild passions, collectibles and toys. Carol grew up in a home that resembled a toy museum, and she found a way to turn her love for toys into a business plan when she left school. Having no money or business sense as a teenager, she approached antique and collectible business owners in her area to propose a consignment deal.
Carol had a secret weapon that appealed to the business owners. She was a young and bright girl with an urge to learn and a growing knowledge of the internet (which was fairly new at that stage). Carol began selling collectibles on consignment and had one of the first Facebook stores by 20. In return for her unbelievable ability to traverse the world wide web, business owners taught her everything they knew. Carol was insanely obsessed with toy and war memorabilia collectibles, learning everything she could and finding connections among the true collectors. From befriending an old-school blacksmith to connecting with someone who could inform her about new toy releases before the public knew, Carol found her element. There was only one thing missing. Carol was also an artist, a writer to be more specific. She found a way to turn all three passions into a means to help collectors find the rarest toys, statues, figures, model kits, and Funko Pops. Meanwhile, she maintained a few clients and used her business to rotate her personal toy collections. Now, Carol writes about the things she loves while helping others build the most unique collections and maintaining her own collectible hobby.
What do you Think Makes a Toy Collectible?
Have you ever heard the saying, “An item is only worth what someone’s willing to pay?” Well, a toy is only collectible if someone’s prepared to collect it. There are countless toys, pop culture replicas, action figures, model kits, and anime dolls on the market, more than you’ll ever realize. The secret to a toy becoming a collectible is that it must emotionally appeal to the collector. How do you get that right? Nostalgia! It’s the essence of all collectibles. Remind someone about something they love, and they’ll consider that figure collectible. The second secret is quality. Toys with zero durability don’t make good collectibles.
What are your Favorite Collectible Brands?
Let me sound like a parrot among the masses, but Funko Pop is the best craze in 2022. Let’s say I own a few Funko Pops. Nendoroids, another chibi-style figure, undoubtedly comes as a close second. I only learned about Nendoroids recently, and I’m wowed! I don’t have any yet, but I’ve added a few to my wishlist.
What Character, Video Game, or Movie Creates the Most Nostalgia for you?
I’m head over heels about all things Pokemon. I followed the games and series since 1998, and my kids follow the new generations.
What is Your Favorite Anime Series Collectibles?
Call me classic, but Naruto will always top my anime list. Demon Slayer is a close second, but Sasuki and Kakashi steal my collectible heart.
Charissa is a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady and otaku who usually fills her days with anime, manga, movies, and JRPGs. Her passion for anime began in childhood as she grew up watching B’t X, Super Boink, Saint Tail, and Sailor Moon. Some of her favorite titles are Elfen Lied, No. 6, Kill la Kill, and Overlord. She keeps tabs on upcoming anime figure releases when she’s not watching or playing, as she’s been
an anime figure collector for 6 years.
Charissa has a BA in Communication Arts and used to write content for an NGO and a House Representative in the Philippines. After years of formal writing, she decided to pursue her passion and became a freelance writer. She tackled various topics to enhance her skills and broaden her views about writing on the whole. While her professional career went through many changes and ups and downs, her spare time was consistently dedicated to anime and gaming. This resulted in Charissa starting a figure collection in 2016. Since then, collecting toys has been an enormous source of joy in her life. And she’s eager to share that happiness in the best way she knows– through writing. That’s why she’s combined her love for collecting and writing to produce in-depth articles to guide other collectors.
What are Your Top Toy Manufacturers?
Flare and Amakuni make the best 1/6 – 1/8 scale figures for me. Because from what I’ve seen and touched personally, the figures they create always hit the mark. Their pieces are always superior and near-perfect in terms of sculpt detail and paint quality. For smaller figures, Good Smile Company is my go-to brand due to the Nendoroid series.
What’s Your Favorite Toy Line?
I love scale anime figures and would spend all my money on them if I could. It’s just amazing to see my favorite characters in 3D, especially when their designs are completely accurate to what’s shown in the anime or game they’re from.
What’s Your Favorite Toy from Your Collection?
All of my figures are important to me since I put a lot of time and effort into selecting them. But I am proud to own 2 figures, in particular, Tharja/Sallya and Cordelia/Tiamo from Fire Emblem: Awakening. Both were made by Good Smile Company and are now considered rare or grail figures by collectors
