CG.. What to get? Hmmm...

Well there’s a ton of CG shows I’d love to collect from but unfortunately I’m not a big fan of sketches whether they be layout, genga or douga. Nothing against the others who collect these, I really do like to look at them in other people’s galleries but I just don’t think I’d shell out money to collect them like I do for a production cel, especially the more popular ones like Bleach. I was thinking of going rilezu but it’s just not the same either especially since they’re usually 200-400 dollars a pop. It’s just so sad I can’t figure out what to collect that would remind me of a show, like for example Galaxy Railways. I’m thinking of just going for the settei and save my money for production cels but I’m not sure how high my tolerance is for buying copies, as most of what I’m seeing right now seems to be that. Plus a lot of the settei seems to now be printed on artbooks. I’ve also looked at storyboards like the one’s for RK and if I can barely see the figures I’m not too excited by it either. If I was going for a sketch of some sort I’d prefer a layout involving a scene I like or a character I love, but the price and getting just the right one would probably lead me more dissatisfied in the end.
*sigh* I think I’ll just go with the settei, they’re relatively cheaper especially the copy ones and the sets usually contain most of the major characters, items and settings. Perhaps instead of buying rilezu I’d just learn to make a fancel from the settei that I do buy. It’s definitely not the same but then again at least I won’t be paying a lot for something that would probably leave me “lacking”. Maybe with settei I’ll even learn to draw. LOL… Which reminds me so far I’ve ended up empty handed with my search for Voltron cels.. But there is a settei I can try to get my hands on. Hmm…. *sigh* Ah well off to bed.
