FF Collections

#1
We had a thread on this like two years ago, but in that time there are plenty of new people, it'd be interesting what trinkets and versions of games we've picked up over the years. I'm sure our collections will all pale in comparison to shademp, but whatever.

This is my FF shelf in my apartment (it's a little out of the way so my apartment doesn't immediately scream "SUPER NERD" to anyone who enters). I kinda need something to put the back row of games on though, the PS1 cases sorta block them...



heh, I didn't notice the little Cactuar in the corner until posting that. That's a phone charm hanging from my Japanese phone on the shelf above it :wacky:

And now everyone finally understand why I nominated you for biggest Final Fantasy Wonk. That is, btw, fucking awesome (love love love the Light figurine).

I need to find out where I put all my FF stuff so I can post up. My god, I'm a slob.

I love these threads. GET SHARING PEOPLE. Here's mine:



I bought them all on release day (the guides too, hence the very freyed PC book). I have the collector's version of XIII for the 360 because I bought it before I had a PS3, and I have the Bradygames guide for FFXII by accident - I bought the wrong one from Amazon assuming it was the actual, non-shit piggyback guide. Anyone who uses the Bradygames guides over piggyback needs to jump into a river of molten lava.

The only real "collector-ey" thing I have is the XIII-2 Crystal Edition (the big box) that came with a XIII-2 T-Shirt and a 3-D image of Lightning, as well as the soundtrack. I also have the soundtrack for V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, X-2, XII, XIII, Crisis Core, Dirge of Cerberus and Advent Children, as well as the piano collections for VII, VIII and IX, but they're in my car (driving music). Though I suppose the black label PS games are slight collectibles now.

I've always prefered the box art we get over here, just the logo on a white background. It looks alot more elegant than the ones you get in america.

These pics are slightly outdated, but I'll mention below what I've added since taking them:



From bottom to top:
-A FFV and FFVI artbook
-Advent Children Prologue
-Advent Children Reunion Files
-FFVII 10th Anniversary Ultimania Revised Edition
-The Art of FFIX
-BradyGames FFVII strategy guide
-BG FFVIII strategy guide
-BG FFIX strategy guide
-BG FFX strategy guide
-BG FFX-2 Limited Edition Strategy Guide
-Piggyback FFXIII Complete Official Guide Collector's Edition
-The Making of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within



Left to right:
-Chrono Cross Ultimania
-FFVII Kaitai Shinsho The Complete
-FFVII Ultimania Omega
-FFVIII Ultimania
-FFIX Ultimania
-FFX Scenario Ultimania
-FFX Battle Ultimania
-FFX Ultimania Omega
-FFX-2 Ultimania

Since taking these, I have added the FFVII Memorial Album (got this from Que), the hardback On the Way to a Smile book (Japanese version, not German) and FFVII Lateral Biography TURKS -The Kids Are Alright-.

I don't have any special edition games or anything of the like, though I do have the Limited Edition North American release of the original Advent Children (the one that came with the script, the first three On the Way to a Smile stories and Last Order), and all the FFVIII soundtracks.

I used to have all the FFVIII, FFX and FFX-2 Kotobukiya figures, but sold all but the FFVIII Bahamut (it was a gift from my brother) during a tough time.

I love our EU box art <3

Same thing with the Harry Potter books.

EDIT: Tres, I see BradyGames, BRADYGAMES EVERYWHERE. GET THEM REPLACED!!!

Also, nice collection :)

The FFVII EU box art is just the logo. The one in my image that you're talking about is the PC box art (the original PS EU one is to the right of that). So, I respectfully disagree :monster:

I have no idea when I'd get to take a pic of my games/guides, as most of them are boxed up at the moment, so I'll just say what I have: FFI on my iPhone, FF Anthology collection (V and VI), FFVII and guide, FFIX, FFX, FFXIII and guide, FFXIII-2 and guide. The other FFs that I've played have been borrowed or on emulators :)

I see. My mistake, still though, I think the NA boxart is still pretty minimalist. The picture is washed out and the building looks suitably imposing. I'll gree with you on the others, but I like that one.

This thread makes me feel better about how much of a nerd I am. I'll have to gather all of my stuff together for one big pic.

HOWEVER I can't find my FF Playarts figures anywhere. :(

I tried to be compositional, and I sucked at it :monster:

I need more figurines

Also, I have price tags and refuse to take them off. Combined with receipts, I can remember where and when I was when I purchased each game.








And yes, Square Enix made me buy Advent Children thrice.

Thank ya thank ya!

It was a fun 2 hrs. Made me feel like I was a curator (one day...ONE DAY, video game collecting will be a curator's job). Also learned a lot about my camera, like how to activate the help menu so it tells me what each button does on-screen, and how to work the aperture (finally!)

This was all done without a flash, because everything was too shiny, and I had to mess with the hue scale because everything kept coming back orange.

So now I want to break all my games up into series and photograph them. :ultros:

I guess the only thing I'm missing from there is Vagrant Story from PSN. I have really good wifi and remote play for the PS1 games. :awesome:

My Final Fantasy collection is in a poor state and split between two countries, so I can't easily take a photo of it. I can give you a list, though. I should also point out that my brother and I used to share games, so most of this is our collection, not just mine. All games are originals, rather than platinum or greatest hits, unless otherwise stated.

PS1:
Final Fantasy Origins
Final Fantasy Anthology
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy VII - black and platinum
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX - black and platinum

PS2:
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy X-2
Final Fantasy XII (two copies)
Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII
Kingdom Hearts
Kingdom Hearts 2

Game Boy Advance:
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Films:
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children ("incomplete" version)

Guides:
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy X-2
Final Fantasy XII

Our Final Fantasy VIII guide had to be thrown away recently because it had completely fallen apart. It was a shame, but it was never going to be used again and held no collectors' value - I think it was even missing some pages - so it wasn't worth keeping. We didn't look after our belongings very well, my brother and I, when we were younger. Many of our games were left on the floor and then stepped on, which usually cracked the case and sometimes the game as well. That's why we had to get platinum replacements for a couple of PS1 games. Damn kids :(

Obviously I have AC Complete too (japanese release), but that's over with my movies rather than my FF shelf.

I always took care of my stuff. My FF7 case is cracked (happened mere hours after I got it :rage:), but the discs were always pampered.

My FF7 case was cracked too. The inside plastic casing of CD cases just pops right off (and then the covers are easily removed) so I just switched it with one of my mums many 2-disc compilation albums back in the day :monster:

As I didn't post my books and stuff:


Yes, Lex, I know, Brady Games. But I want to say that each of those strategy guides there were gifts. I've never bought one.

I imported the AC Reunion Files :geek:, the ACC Dengeki Playstation and Dissidia Hero Guide I got when I was in Japan.


Off topic, however, I was looking through the Reunion Files since I got it out to take the picture and I saw on the Cait Sith character page it describes him as an "animatronic ... robot ... controlled by Reeve." Take that Inspire! :monster:

Hey-o! Hawkeye mentioned this thread, so I thought I'd share my stuff. This is the first time I've ever really gathered it up and organized it, so it should be an interesting adventure and walk down memory lane. I can't do it all in one picture, so I'll do it in thematic chunks as best I can.

First, the big guns: Every FF Ultimania, the 25th Anniversary Ultimate Box, the 25th Anniversary Final Fantasy Orchestral Album (limited edition LP+blu-ray), and just because I had nowhere else to put it, I tucked the 20th Anniversary Famitsu Special Edits book between my Ultimate Box and the Ultimate Box games.

Also, my camera's resolution apparently sucks more than I thought and my lights suck too, sorry. Anyways, here's the lowdown, from the top-left shelf corner:

Final Fantasy VII Ultimania Omega
Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania
Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania
Final Fantasy IX Ultimania
Final Fantasy X Scenario Ultimania
Final Fantasy X Battle Ultimania

Final Fantasy 20th Anniversary Ultimania File 3: Battle
(Final Fantasy XII-2 Battle Ultimania with Scenario cover. Somebody on Amazon tried to trick me and sent me this, so now I have two 13-2 Battles)

On the bottom of the shelf, from the bottom:

Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Memorial Ultimania Vol.1
Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Memorial Ultimania Vol.2
Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Memorial Ultimania Vol.3

That's it for this installment! I'll start getting the meat of the collection organized now. What a mess! :)
