My current database indicates 2464 figures, but it doesn't include a couple dozen or so butterflies that are not identified to the genus or species level (most randomly-colored generic butterflies).

PostSubject: 1046 models so far.   How many models in your collection, and how long have you been collecting for? - Page 2 EmptyMon Nov 16, 2020 3:17 am

Dear Sts Friends:
Well, I counted up my collection, and I now have, minus the accessories, 1046 models, including the people. Tonight, I ordered some more additions for my collection, including a Collecta Horseshoe Crab. I now have 6 Collecta Models. Anyway, there's really nothing much going on otherwise, so if there's more news, then I'll just post here again.

P.S. I only started seriously collecting since 2016.

Dear Sts Friends:
Okay, so, here's the total of things if you count the accessories )I.E. Food, Tools, playmobil, lego, and other stuff that works as accessories.). The Grand total is 1385. There, that's my entire collection. That total represents the number of figures and accessories I have now, including the figures that have recently been ordered, and the ones from Safari for 2021. Yes, I do have a database that has this info in it. Well, it's actually a word document in my computer. Anyway, last I checked, the total was 1385. Anyway, if anyone else is interested in my collection, then let me know your thoughts, or what not. So, if there's more news, then maybe i'll post here again some time.

Aschuck

P.S. I think the largest parts of my collection are the safari and schleich, because the Schleich entry says: 441, While the Safari Entry says: 405. I guess we'll just have to see what Safari comes out with for 2021.

My focus has changed in the two years since I last posted. The numbers are less now, but I have removed most of my generic arthropod figures and they have been replaced by non-arthropod species for my Synoptic Collection. With the exception of arthropod groups that are rarely represented (termites, springtails, mayflies, grylloblattids, others), everything in my collection now can be attributed to at least the genus level.

That must be more manageable, and of course, it's always nice to be able to have some way of organising a collection! Very Happy

Dear Sts Friends:

Well, the Grand total has changed again. Now the grand total for my collection is: 1538. This total is if you count the accessories and animals and people. Anyway, that's the latest news, so I'll post if there's more.

I just passed 4,000 a few weeks ago... all kinds of brands, known and unknown, most species, handful of fantasy. I got my first Schleich at 3 years old (I remember buying them at the store, the shire gelding and chestnut mare). Bought figures as toys as a child, didn't seriously start "collecting" until I was around 13 and found the forum, have been enjoying this hobby and the forum for around a decade now. My basement is slowly filling up with plastic... Shocked Rolling Eyes Laughing

I have collected since I was two years old, so 13 years and my figure count is roughly 1400, I started seriously collecting maybe age 6 but only in the last 4 years I have discovered people like me with the same hobby. The most common species/breed in my collection is Bengal tigers and African lions with 32 of each

Dear Sts Friends:

Well, today I checked my database, and I now have a total of 1056 figures, not counting the accessories. Isn't that great? Anyway, I also wanted to tell you that I do have a searchlist going, but it seems to me that that list is getting longer and longer. I guess that's one of the dilemmas of being a collector. Oh well. Anyway, here is the total in my collection if you do count the accessories:

1410.

I'm sure that my number of figures will grow in the future, so we'll see what happens. I really think that's it great that some of you have 4000 figures. I sure wish I had that many figures crossed off my searchlist. At least I won't be getting much in 2021, at least from Safari and Schleich. See, Schleich's fantasy line doesn't interest me this time around. Looks like it will be just animals, and maybe a dinosaur, but that's about it. Anyway, I just thought I'd give you all a report of how my collection is doing. Well, that's the news from my side, so I'll post again if there's more.

PostSubject: Another Figure update.   How many models in your collection, and how long have you been collecting for? - Page 2 EmptyToday at 1:54 am

Dear Sts Friends:

Okay, so, tonight I ordered 10 more figures for my collection. The current total of models, animals and people, minus accessories, is 1066. For those of you who actually count your collections, do you count the total of everything, or do you count just the animals, or what? The reason why I ask is because the title for this topic says how many models in your collection, and how long have you been collecting for? Well, as to how many models, that depends on if you count the fantasy, animals, and people models that you have. Otherwise, if you count just the animals and prehistoric, then the total is really 10003. Now that looks a lot different, but only because the people have been subtracted from the original total. Right now, I have 63 people in my collection. Of course they're not all human, but that's not the point. The point is, how do you organize your collections, when it comes to the number of models? Yeah, I know, my questions might seem out of place, but they're very insightful, don't you think? Anyway, I now have 16 Collecta Models in my collection. I've also made my search list for 2021. Anyway, this is the only news that I have for now, so I'll post if there's more.

Also, if anyone else has insightful questions about organizing, I'll do my best to answer them. I always like giving advice to other forum members.

Aschuck, I think everyone has a different way of doing it- but for me, people and fantasy figures count as models and would be included in the total. Accessories such as fences, food etc. collected just for building a scene would not be included in my total. Trees, buildings and the like are a grey area, they may mostly be accessories I wouldn't count but sometimes they may be collected as models in their own right and should be included in the count.

Having said that, I have never counted my collection. While I don't have any people, the fantasy figures would certainly be a part of the total were I to do so.
