Figures 


Black Rock Shooter figma with DVD

I received my Black Rock Shooter figma figure today. To my surprise the box said that a 50 minute DVD was included. I wasn’t expecting that at all. I was actually thinking about checking out the Black Rock Shooter anime, so a free DVD is great even if it doesn’t have any subtitles.

So I sit down to check out the DVD. The anime starts playing right away. It looks pretty cool. I press the menu button just in case… and it does have subtitles! In multiple languages! It has English, Japanese, Chinese, German, Spanish, French and Italian subtitles! :D

 
Momohime & Seena

This week some of the stuff I’ve ordered has started dropping in. A couple of days ago I got the posters (KARA and YUI) that I ordered as well as the CDs and Blu-ray that you see in the picture. Yesterday my latest two figures arrived and today I picked them up.

There’s Momohime by Alter and Seena by Max Factory, both of which I’ve mentioned before. Both figures are really great. I’m super happy with them.

I only took a quick picture, … Continue reading

 

I haven’t written about my figure collection in a while. Since last time I’ve received the Rider figma figure, which is everything I expected, as well as my Hatsune Miku VN02 mix. The “downside” with the Miku figure is that it pretty much needs a shelf of its own, since it’s so eye-catching that it steals the thunder from other figures on the same shelf.

Kiriko Ninja ver.

Just a short post to show you what I got in the mail today. Or, rather, I had to go to the post office and pay import duties for it (lousy customs). It’s finally here! The Hattori Kiriko figure I’ve been waiting for for ages. It’s pure awesomeness :)

I just snapped a quick photo of it. I wish I had set up my “mini studio” now so I could take some proper photos.

It’s designed by Shunya Yamashita and sculpted by Mitsumasa Yoshizawa (REFLECT). It’s manufactured by Yamato.

There are a lot of nice figures coming out this year. In July Alter is releasing this 1/8 figure of Momohime from the game Muramasa (Demon Blade). Yet another game I’ve never heard of, but the figure looks very nice. … Continue reading

 
Sill Plain ~Rance IV version~

I got this figure - 1/8 Kotobukiya Sill Plain ~Rance IV version~ - last week and thought I’d write a little something about it.

As you can see in the pictures, her hair and clothes have kind of a pearly shine. In the promo pictures it looked like her hair was a matte pink like the previous Sill figure, but this is not the case.

Although I haven’t written much about figures, it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped blowing mone… collecting them.

Ryomou

*squeal* *squeal*

Yet another figure based on a Shunya Yamashita design is coming out in January. This time it’s a pretty far out version of Ryomou Shimei of Ikki Tousen. It looks almost nothing like the original character - it looks much better!

The 1/6 PVC figure is manufactured by Daiki Kougyo and it’s very very expensive. It costs more than the Kiriko figure I mentioned before. … Continue reading

 

I’ve once again gotten back into figures. I’m still waiting for my Good Smile Saber Lily Avalon, which will finally be released at the end of this month. I’ve also bought another display case and some LED lights to light up each shelf. I was planning on displaying only a few figures and rotating them, but now I’ll try to display most of them at once if I can arrange them in a tasteful manner.

I’m a fan of Shunya Yamashita’s designs, but I’ve opted out on some of the latest figures, since they haven’t seemed as nice as I would’ve liked. But now they’ve started taking pre-orders for the mother of all Shunya Yamashita figures: Hattori Kiriko Ninja version.

Kiriko

The design is great. I really like the face, and … Continue reading

 
Alter Louise Gothic and Punk Ver.

Today I got my Zero no Louise figure that I pre-ordered ages ago. It’s Alter’s Louise Gothic and Punk Ver. figure. I’m not very into the gothic lolita style, but I really like this figure. The boots and ribbons and everything.

I’ve watched two seasons of Zero no Tsukaima. I started watching the anime after seeing figures of Louise. I liked the concept that she was called Zero no Louise becuase she had a zero success rate with her spells.
