Back That Loot Up

July 7, 2009

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!

Haruhi Extravaganza!

May 7, 2009

Part of my loot this month were the 1/8-scale Max Factory Haruhi and Mikuru Gekisou versions from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. An amazing one-two punch of figures here, and I am also anxiously awaiting the arrival of Yuki to complete the set.

YAЯЯЯ! May Loot Afoot!

May 4, 2009

Yo-ho, yo-ho, a figure collector’s life for me…

What came today but no less than three packages of figure booty. Even Yuki had to take off her glasses in awe, while Miku is singing praises of the wonderful loot. Two packages were plundered from the good people of HobbySearch, while the third is from eStarLand. This treasure will languish for the time being as I am obligated to complete a few prior engagements first, but rest assured I will be opening and digging through the loot soon.

Update: Now that I have found time to go through my loot, I wonder what could be inside this motherlode?

The Figma Sandlot

April 20, 2009

Because of my figure obsessive completist disorder, I added the Haruhi and Mikuru cheerleader Figmas to my Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Figma collection that is nearly complete with every Haruhi Figma in the wild except for Kyon and Itsuki, because of my strict ban on sausages in my figure breakfast (which might have to be broken to accomodate for epic trap Mariya-sama in my previous post). These particular Figmas come with a bevy of accessories so that you can act out all your favorite scenes from Haruhi episode four, where Haruhi enters the SOS Brigade into the local baseball tournament. It’s one of my favorite episodes from that series, and I was definitely excited to start posing these Figmas.
