Default FF Collections

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...

(SPOILER)

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

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These pics are slightly outdated, but I'll mention below what I've added since taking them: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
-FFX-2 Ultimania Omega
-FFX-2: International+Last Mission Ultimania
-FF 20th Anniversary Ultimania File 2: Scenario

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'm also more fond of the EU box art. It's so much cleaner and less, I don't know, kitschy?

FF7's is better in NA. With Cloud staring up at the Shinra building rather than staring at you.

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

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.
