I collect Fullmetal Alchemist (manga) items and other Arakawa Hiromu related stuff. I've been doing so for years, so I've got quite a big collection by now. This is a really specific list of goods I'm looking for, which are mostly things that were only available for a limited time via through-the-mail Shounen Gangan promotions (zen-in).

If there's something in this list you own and no longer want (or if you know where I could get it), please PM me or leave a comment here ♥ There may be some other items I don't own that aren't listed here, so if you own something really rare you want to sell and it's not on the list, I don't mind taking a look at it :) I'm looking for good offers though, money is tight!

Note: I already own all FMA related books, artbooks, CDs, DVDs and CD dramas available unless otherwise noted, so don't bother with that. I believe I own every piece of furoku given away with Gangan for free, too. And I also do not collect US, any other non-Japanese merchandise or bootlegs.

Two rare Gangan exclusive items: an original Arakawa illustration Ed, Al & Winry clock and a lunch set (includes mat and dish).

Some more rare Gangan exclusive items I've hardly ever (or never) seen on auction: portrait digital clock, mug cup and pin set.

On the left there's a set of Ed & Al tote bags with matching coing purse, available via a Square Enix related through-the-mail promotion. On the right there's an Ed umbrella (last umbrella I'm missing, I believe).

These t-shirts. The one on the left is an old t-shirt+towel set and the ones on the right were released together a bit later - I already own the white t-shirt in its girls (pink) version and the black one, so I wouldn't be interested in those.

These are exclusive items obtained with coupons in the kanzenban edition. On the left there's a card set given out with volumes 3 to 5. The item on the right is a glass clock that fans could get with volumes 6 to 8.

The item on the left is a calculator that seems to escape me everytime it shows up in auctions. The middle items are iPod cases + speaker. And on the right there's a set of CD cases - I'm more interested in the B version (on the far right) than the other one.

Looking for these rubber straps. Especially looking for Roy, then Black Hayate, then Al or Ed.

On the left there's the Comic Telephone Card Special Set ver. 2, which has 6 telekas in it. I already own ver. 1, so I'm looking for the other one. Also interested in the other telekas on the right (and probably any that I don't have already).

On the far left there's a promotional bandana from 2005-06. I don't have a full picture of it though. In the middle there's a game case (for Nintendo DS or PSP?) and finally on the far right there's a metallic pin badge.

The item on the left is a framed original Arakawa illustration I don't have high hopes of ever owning, lmao. It was announced during 2010 along with an actual silver pocket watch (I'm not that interested in the watch though, I would rather get the framed illustration only for less money). I'm also looking for any of the items on the right (mouse, mousepad, keyboard cover, wrist rest).

These are message sheets given out as promotional items with Gangan issues, tankoubons, etc. I own a few already, but these are some I don't. I'm interested in originals only, not copies. If you have any at all (even if it's not up there), I'd appreciate if you could show it to me :)

Finally decided to collect the official videogames. These are the Square Enix released games for PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii, Japanese versions. These are low priority, looking for cheap second hand copies.

And these are the ones made by Bandai for PlayStation 2, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS and PSP (Japanese versions). Again, looking for cheap second hand copies.

My most wanted Silver Spoon item at the moment is the promotional poster above, printed to celebrate the Manga Taishou win.

Other items
  • I collect promotional posters, with Arakawa illustrations - especially posters promoting the tankoubons/volumes when they first came out in Japan (example). So far I have posters advertising the following volumes: 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27 and the first four kanzenbans. If you have any other, I'd love to purchase it. Interested in posters advertising other Arakawa works, too (Silver Spoon, RAIDEN-18, Shanghai Youma Kikai, etc.) TOP PRIORITY POSTER ATM!

  • Any doujinshi made by Arakawa Hiromu (probably under the name Arakawa Edmund) I don't have already - either Shishi Juushin Enbu, original or based on other series. If you have any, I'd love if you could show it to me!

  • I also collect Roy/Hawkeye doujinshi. I own over 450 books already, so I've got a rather small wishlist here. Also looking for pretty books involving Ed/Winry, Ling/Lan Fan and especially Al/Mei I don't own already (show me, please!).

  • Thanks a lot for looking! ♥ If you have any questions, again leave a comment or PM me.

    I want that movie Ed plush so bad ;__; I'm supposed to be getting one in a trade but the person isn't replying... agh

    There is a pouch up on Ebay right now also. I saw a few on Y!JP for cheaper.

    I passed up on that plush quite a few times, but now that I'm only missing three official plushes I really want it! Of course now it's quite rare :( Good luck on getting it!

    Which pouch(es), if I may ask?

    Luckily she contacted me today. Darn power outages fried her router XD I can't wait to get him <3

    The pouch on your wish list! The one of the kinda cute flamel :D

    Or at least I thought it was on your wish list. Maybe I was mistaken. ^^;

    Do you have any info on the Movic Ed plush? I haven't seen it before.

    Date: 2011-09-22 04:31 pm (UTC)
    From: [identity profile] hamsterfactor.livejournal.com
    Lucky you! Hopefully I'll be able to get one for myself at some point~

    I think I know which pouch are you talking about, it was some Gangan furoku. But I don't think I've ever had it in my wishlist xD

    The Ed Movic plush is this one: http://www.movic.jp/index.php?ctrl=sheet&code=3698 There was also Roy in the set (which I already have). They were released after the 2003 anime finished and before Brotherhood started, so they're not that well known, I think.

    I didn't even know that the Movic 7" plushie Ed even existed! He's so cute! I'll probably never find him but I'd love to have him too! :) Aside from the other two plushies, I've never seen any of this stuff before either. It must all be super rare stuff outside of Japan. :/ I feel like I've lived a deprived fandom life now! XD

    I think the Ichiban Kuji Banpresto Ed plush is rarer (or at least more expensive) than the Movic one, because it was sold by lottery. I'm hoping to save up enough money to afford the Ichiban Kuji and then I'll be closer to complete my plush collection xD

    Most of this stuff I've seen on auction at least once (and couldn't win it), but some things like the Hawkeye t-shirt or all the items next to the framed illustrations I've only seen on ads, so I'd say they're pretty rare D: I keep the faith, though!

    I have a "NOT FOR SALE" DVD release promo phone card up on my e-crater shop here --> http://serendipitycollections.ecrater.com/p/13051879/full-metal-alchemist-phone-card

    ~ Then I have 3 talking keychain eggs: Ed, Alphonse, & Riza
    (Ed's tag that keeps him from being used came out when I unpackaged him, I think I pulled it by accident and have not been able to find it since. I don't play with him but he is tested so he works. The others work but I have not removed their tags other then to test them.


    The items below I think you might already have. Let me know if you do not and need/ want them

    ~ Full Sized posters........
    1) New Years Poster
    2) "Thank you for...." 2003 Furoku poster
    3) 2003 FMA/ Reload Gunlock double sided Furoku poster
    4) 1 very nice double sided, 2 page spread full color furoku poster.
    * 1st section: Mustang, Riza, & 4 other on Stairs.
    * 2nd section: Ed sitting on rubble looking ticked off. Al behind him in profile, face turned towards edward and a hazy gold and brown behind him.
    * 3rd section: Stone floor with Ed's mechanical arm thumb broken off looking like it's reaching for the red stone above that.
    * 4th section: Completely forgot their names but Scar looks like his sitting on a throne in while light as around him are Greed, gluttony, ect ect.they are all rizing up out of blood and what looks like metal tubes.

    ~ Promotional Flyers.....
    FMA "Complete Best 2004.10.14 On sale"
    FMA 2003.10.4 Sat TV Animation On Air Start"
    Both of those promo flyers are close to the size of a shitajiki.

    I also have 3 pins (Ed & Mayes) 1 of which is a can badge of AL

    And a Not for sale promo CD: "TV animation FMA origional soundtrack."*Not for sale* promo CD. Aniplex- Japanese! $10 (Used)

    Please let me know if you need any of these or need more info. I will be out for a couple hours to get groceries ect. But I will reply once I return should you reply while I am gone.

    I mostly collect rare manga art stuff, so anything that has anime art on it I'm not really interested in (and if I am it's likely I already bought it), sorry ^^; I own the complete talking keychain set and I'm guessing all those posters have anime art (I own a bunch of furoku posters too).

    As for the flyers I have like a hundred of those already and again I'm guessing it's anime art... And I'm not interested in any CD since I own all of them except singles ^^;

    Again, sorry! But seriously thank you so much for commenting, it's really appreciated! ♥

    You didn't mention it but I picked up some cell phone stickers while in Japan. Of course they did not fit mine as I found out back home. Not sure if you're interested in those/have those already? I also have some random FMA stuff like the tradable round cardboard things to put drinks on, and some Gashapon items, though those are pretty easy to come by.

    Just read your comment about manga art. Those are all anime art (first series).

    Yeah I own quite a bit of merchandise from the first anime and I'm not interested in any more, mainly collecting manga art now. But thanks a lot for commenting, really appreciated! :)

    Although I don't have any of the specific items on your list. I do have loads of other FMA merchandise for sale.

    I uploaded all of the pictures for them HERE (http://s57.photobucket.com/albums/g218/AnimeFreakKatie/Fullmetal%20Alchemist%20Merchandise/)

    Some of the merch has been sold already though.

    And Hiromu Arakawa made doujinshi? I did not know that! I think I want some now. lol

    I don't think there's anything I'm interested in, but thanks a lot for the link! :)

    Yup, she did a bunch before FMA started, I have three from various fandoms (Evangelion, Super Street Fighter 2 and Vampire Savior) and one Shishi Juushin Enbu, which is kind of the origin for Hero Tales.

    Oh cool, I wonder what the Shishi Juushin Enbu one is about.
