Finally got the time to take some more up-to-date photos. You'll have to forgive the quality, since most of these were taken with my iPad 4.
First of all, my Figuarts collection. It's fairly modest, but as I mentioned in my introduction thread, I'm fairly particular about what I buy, and I came into the line late enough that must-haves like Cell were in the 150+ range secondhand. I recently pre-ordered the upcoming PCE Cell, XV Trunks, and XV Hero, and I plan on using the latter two for some custom additions. I should also add that I actually keep these on a shelf in a cupboard, but I moved them into the dining room for better lighting.
Next up, my MCU shelf. I've thrown in Wasp and Giant Man, mostly because they're staples of the Avengers for me and Hank's unlikely to suit up himself. I'm sure someone will note the lack of Spider-Man, but I am not paying $60 for the 3 pack just to get a figure that I'm sure will come out again (or even a better version) alongside Sony's film anyway. As for WS... eh. I'm sure I'll get there, but I honestly didn't like either figure.
Finally (for now) my Spider-Man figures. I have a few of these guys, including some WIP customs.

I forgot to mention in my initial post, but I have several other collections, I just rotate them in and out depending on space and my mood. These are the 3 I've been maintaining lately, but I've got a few others in storage,

This is a WIP for my list. Didn't realize how late it was getting tho, so I'll edit with details after I get settled in at work.
Edit: Ok, settled in now. The big thing I should notate is, this list is just a wip, and the order of characters is pretty much just whenever I chose to add them (they're only numbered to help me keep track of how many are in each category). Pretty much everyone in the Possible category can be ignored or replaced at any time, and are really just dependent on what figures get released (Ex. Only reason Kid Goku is even a possibility is because of the previewed Figuarts figure). I also need to go back and color code some things, such as which characters I feel need to be figures and which ones can be in-scale statues or other figures.
Also, the whole reason I'm posting the list is to discuss it, so go nuts.
I see the one Gohan you want is Saiyaman. You think they'll release one?
Glad Chiaotzu made the possibilities.
Gohan was a tough one for me to decide on. I knew I wanted an adult version of him, but I didn't care for the notion of having yet another orange Gi, nor did I like the Blue training one all that much. The Saiyaman Gi is something unique to Gohan, and I actually like him in the green: It evokes Gohan's time training with Piccolo without having to be a clone of the purple Gi like in the Cell saga. There's also shades to the battle armor he wore in the Freeza saga. And the very idea of Saiyaman is uniquely Gohan: an identity with which he can do the right thing, but at the end of the day allowing him to have a normal life.
As for Figuarts making it... yeah, I doubt it, at least not for awhile. I do think we'll get the blue gi at some point (with Ace being out there they have all the pieces) but to do Saiyaman Gohan they'd need a new skirt and possibly new legs, plus a myriad of newly sculpted heads to cover all the different variations (Helmeted, bandana/sunglasses from the tournament, and unmasked). But then, that's what customs are for, right?
As for Chiaotzu, I might move him from possibilities to ones I for sure want. I don't think I'd feel right with getting a Tien and not having Chaotzu.
In the end, I'm trying to get myself to a round number of characters, which means either adding a few more, or taking a few out. I'm in no rush to do that though, since Super is still a thing and there's always a chance more characters from that show will win me over in the intervening years.

So I mentioned the idea of a 3 way split for my shelf over in the archenemies thread... and honestly, the more I think about it, the more it has been appealing to me as something I should actually use. I created a rough draft and I think I'll be playing with adding stuff throughout this afternoon.
Also, please be aware that the titles are more to help me keep them straight then any statement on my part about the characters themselves. For example, 18 is in the "good" column instead of 16 purely to keep her with Krillin, and 17 is only in the "evil" column because I liked the synergy of splitting the trio into each section. 90% of this is whim. That said, if anyone has any ideas for it, I'd love to hear them.
