After a hectic week in Japan, followed by a month-long convalescence in a hospital in China, its good to finally be back stateside. I stumbled, jet-lagged to holy hell, back into my apartment, to be greeted by a nice stack of boxes (kudos to my roommate for bringing it in), of all the loot I had ordered this past month and was unfortunately not home to welcome. Fear not, my children, for your father has come home safe and sound!
Did you miss me, my lovelies? Well, Arnie probably didn’t, he was too busy declaring states of emergencies in the black hole of money known as the Kaleefoynyah Ecahnohmee!
As for the rest of my loot, they include the following addition to my figure armada.
1/6 Kotobukiya Yoko Crimson Chapter ver.
1/6 New Line Revy Cold Cast
A hefty piece of hardware she was, from the manga/anime Black Lagoon, but she will go well with the New Line Roberta that I already have. I’m glad they did a re-release of this figure, or else I would have had to splash even more cash on eBay to satisfy my irrational desire to complete collections.
1/8 Max Factory Asahina Mikuru Adult ver! Now where is that star shaped mole…
1/8 MegaHouse Ranka Lee Hobby Japan limited ver.
This is the figure that I bid for on Yahoo Japan Auctions through Goody Japan, which I discussed in an earlier post. She is now in my possession safe and sound. With that, I will definitely recommend Goody Japan to anyone looking for a deputy service to bid on Yahoo Japan Auctions, and I will definitely be using them again.
1/8 Alter Kawazoe Tamaki
1/8 Clayz Hiiragi Tsukasa and Takara Miyuki
Completed my Clayz Lucky Star set, of which I already had Kagamin and Konata. I think I’ll skip the Atelier-Sai set for now, as they are in the same seifuku. The FREEing set is just too big for my modest apartment in their 1/4 scales. The Macross Frontier cosplay set, on the other hand…
1/8 Max Factory Yuki Extravaganza ver.
Completed my Extravaganza set with this Yuki, can’t wait to take pics of all three main Haruhi girls jamming. Although from some of the Extravaganza art material, Tsuruya-san is with them as well in similarly *ahem* extravagant wear. I like my excessively long-haired girls (loved the Clannad Kyou OVA, but hated it when she cut her hair at the end).
Kagamiku cosplay Figma
I also put the WonFes Miku Live Stage ver. Figma on order as well, she can share her stage sets with Kagamiku here.
Asahina Mikuru Battle Waitress Figma
Tsuruya-san School Festival Cosplay Cafe ver.
I got another one of these in a shipment to complement the one I picked up in my time in Akiba, so I could use the Mikuru head for one of them.
1/7 EnterBrain Yoko
Ah, here’s an oldie but goodie that I missed, to add to my growing Yoko-force. I actually picked this up right before I left Akihabara, from the Mandarake store in a side street off Chuodori. They had a nice collection of other rare figures as well, including an Alter Revy, and a few others that my jet-lagged self can’t recall off the top of my head.
YOU AHRE WAHN, UHGLY MAHTHAHFAHCKAH! 1/6 Hot Toys Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer
I mentioned this in the post right before this one, that I received the Sideshow Exclusive ver. of this Hot Toys figure from the movie Predator. The likeness of the Governator himself, this one definitely deserves his own post in the future. STICK AHROWND!
There are a few others pictured in the first group shot that I didn’t take individual pictures off. One is the Alex Mercer figure that I received with my copy of the game Prototype for Windows, of which I am playing through now. It is a fun game, although as I get further and further into the game, it starts feeling less and less polished.
I also got my hands on a Yoko oppai mousepad. Finally I can now use my mouse comfortably, as my wrists are now supported by her lovely assets.
Alright, time to get my jet-lagged ass to sleep.
