Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (10/13/14 - 10/19/14).
Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
I've been reading the threads in this forum for the last few days and I thought I would make this thread since I didn't see anything like it.
I enjoy collecting figures of series that I like, so naturally I've been trying to find stuff from Hunter x Hunter. Since there has recently been a boom in figures for series, I was hoping the new anime would bring about some figures. To my surprise, it did:

I found a site that listed the release dates for them:

On top of that, I had found a pic for another set of figures:

So this is the start to my figure collection for HxH 2011. I hope this thread will be a place where people can post new information they find about figures, manga, or other goodies that will be released.
Also, I did find some stuff from HxH that pre-dated the new anime. There is a mini figure collection that is a set of 24 pieces (and 1 secret, Kuroro). I recently bought the 24 set (they were out of the secret), so I will post a pic when I get a chance.
I know there are some random figures floating around. There are ones of Gon, Killua, Kurapica (that I remeber seeing). Also, there is a doll(?) of Gon (like RAHs if anyone follows Jojo and the like).
I also got a HxH pocket watch a while ago, but I'm trying to figure out if it is official (I can't seem to find any information on its release).
Besides the pocket watch and incoming mini figures, my collection consists of all the Japanese and English releases of the manga (they are current in storage, so getting a pic of my collection is tough at the moment).
Anyway, I look forward to seeing people's collections and hearing news anyone finds. If not, I'll still post what I find.
Edit: I forgot about these too:

O thats cool, I read it somewhere not to long ago that a company licensed Hunter x Hunter 2011. Viz weren't the ones who licensed it though. So maybe FUNimation got the rights to it but not to sure.
Not gonna lie Noonealive, that gets me more excited then I should be. I'd like to find back up to this rumor you've heard. As a Yu Yu Hakusho dub fan I always wanted Hunter to get a decent Funimation dub long before we got the atrocious one that Viz did. *back when I watched chinese bootlegs of 1999 anime* Now I hope the 2011 anime has at least a shot more recognition among western audiences. Not that I am expecting it to set the world on fire like Naruto did, but I'll be happy to get dvd's for the new series along with possibly any games that may or may not be made for HxH.
Damn, now I REALLY want those! Where did you buy/order them?
I've never really been one to try and find figures, part of me finds it a tad creepy sometimes for whatever reason so I'm prolly not gonna fret over this.... but I AM going to have to try and get some manga volumes or something

I got the pocket watch and 24 mini figures off of ebay. Here is what the figures look like:

Most sites are out of stock, so finding them for a decent prize was a bit tough.
I like the 1999 dub.
Though I think the 2011 will need a new dub anyways. Elinor Holt wouldn't fit so well with 2011 Gon as he is more childish than 1999 Gon
Well this is a little proof on it getting licensed.
As soon as I get a decent salary on my work I'll surely buy one of those. They're amazing, I love them. I particularly enjoy the Ichiban Kuji (Banpresto) ones. Epic poses.
The minis are kinda meh.
Oh, sorry about not noticing they're still not out yet. I basically just skimmed through your post at that time :P
I'm definitely buying them all! Wonder if/when they're releasing the ones from everyone else.
I have a few fairly rare pieces of Hunter x Hunter merchandise I was thinking of offloading if anyone was interested.
The first is the 2002 Jump Festa figure set (what's in the box, ignore the other figures):
The second and rarer is the 2002 Jump Festa pin set:
Anyone interested? If so, send me a pm.
I saw the put the pre-order up for the G.E.M. Killua figure:
Damn He looks badass. I wonder when I will see something like that in my country. sob.
