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