September Lootage

September 5, 2009

My September HobbySearch shipment came in today. Last month I only added one figure to my collection, the Alter Bounty Hunter Yoko, and I sort of missed getting the huge bulk package to tear into. Now this month I am adding five more ladies to my menagerie, and the package they came in was indeed bulk, and it was a joy to dive into it and extract the new additions.

The Nyan Knight

August 27, 2009

Looks like there’s another Ranka coming out to add to my Macross Frontier collection. I’m most likely skipping the Nyan Nyan restaurant version, despite the presence of meat buns on that one, and going straight for this one of her in her concert wear. I already have the Banpresto Ichiban Kuji version of her doing her kira! pose, but this one looks to be even more moe-some.

This version of Ranka will go well with the MegaHouse Sheryl I will be receiving near the end of this month when my bulk package from HobbySearch ships out.

In the meantime, I’m currently playing through Batman: Arkham Asylum for the PlayStation 3 right now. Picked up the Limited Edition on Monday, which came with all these goodies, including the Batarang on a stand. This game comes highly recommended to anyone looking for a good third person action game with a good storyline, and if they are in any way, shape, or form a fan of Batman and comic book superheroes in general.

I really wanted to play this on the PC, but a combination of delayed release (Sept. 15th for the PC version), lack of limited edition, and the PS3 receiving the exclusive Play As The Joker bonus prompted me to pick up the PS3 version. But this game is pretty damn good, that I will probably pick up the PC version in a few weeks and play through it again with 3D Vision and PhysX effects for the ultimate encore experience. But for now, I must go back to kicking ass as the Goddamn Batman!

Macross Girls, Girls, Girls

April 15, 2009

Girls, girls, girls, girls
Girls of Macross Frontier
Yo put your number on this paper cause I would love to date ya
Hit me up and ditch that Alto queer
(sung to the tune of Girls, Girls, Girls by Jay-Z)

I finally completed my Banpresto Ichiban Kuji Macross Frontier collection, consisting of Ranka Lee, Sheryl Nome, and Clan Clang, which I reviewed before individually. As a huge fan of Macross Frontier, the moment I heard about this set which can be obtained through a lottery in Japan, I let out a sigh, and started perusing eBay and Yahoo Japan Auctions for purchasing opportunities with my wallet kicking and screaming all the way. Eventually, I got my grubby mitts on all three of these figures, and I can say that they do not disappoint at all. A truly high-quality set of figures we have on hand here, and I will be doing a double review of Ranka and Sheryl today.
