New stuff for February to July

I haven’t posted about any loot for the last six months because I haven’t gotten much in the loot department recently. I was able to save quite a bit of money during that stretch…too bad it’s all going towards the next five months of pre-orders.

If you feel so inclined to know what I bought before the jump I got 6 figures, 2 Dengeki G’s magazine, and one Dakimakura. Continue reading ‘New stuff for February to July’

GSC Canaan

Canaan was the anime that had so much potential when the first episode rolled out last year with its action packed sequences that blew my socks off. Sadly, everything went downhill from thereon. It is quite fitting (and depressing) that Good Smile Company followed suit and produced a figure with the same qualities as the show itself. A figure that had so much potential, but the end product was never meant to be. Continue reading ‘GSC Canaan’

June pre-orders update…

It’s been a good six months since I updated my pre-order list. I was quite content to see that list dwindle down to two figures at one point, until the figure gods at Alter announced this beautiful Asuka Langley Shikinami Test Type Plug Suit figure. I’m eager to see what Alter will do with her base. No…this isn’t the only figure I pre-ordered. Continue reading ‘June pre-orders update…’

Brilliant Stage iDOLM@STER Azusa Miura Sunshine Yellow Ver.

Azusa Miura is the 7th idol to receive the figure treatment in MegaHouse’s Brilliant Stage Idolm@ster line of figures. To my disappointment, Azusa wasn’t released as a pair with another idol like her predecessors. Instead, MegaHouse released her in two colour variants — the one you see here and a purple version with bat motifs on her outfit. I opted for the sunshine yellow version because it fits in with the rest of the set. Continue reading ‘Brilliant Stage iDOLM@STER Azusa Miura Sunshine Yellow Ver.’

Alter Saber Alter -Maid Version-

Alter’s Saber Alter -Maid Version- is perhaps the best figure made to-date of this blonde beauty, even though she is dressed in her fan servicing maid outfit instead of her usual battle ready attire. Not that she can’t kick some ass with a mop and bucket. Continue reading ‘Alter Saber Alter -Maid Version-‘

GSC Black Rock Shooter

Good Smile Company’s Black Rock Shooter — the one that almost got away.  I had her on my pre-order list, dropped her, picked her up again, dropped her again, and picked her up once more.  One of the reason she was dropped twice is the fact that she was delayed one too many times.  The only reason that I picked her up (again) many times after is because she is one sexy figure.  Then, of course, I learned later that she’s a reincarnation of Hatsune Miku, which might have played a big role subliminally.

New stuff for January

I don’t anticipate anything coming in for me in February, though I was quite tempted by the HLJ MegaHouse sale; however, I resisted somehow.  Here is what I got way back in January: GSC’s Black Rock Shooter, GSC Nendoroid Chiaki Minami, and a shiny new desk from Ikea.  I finally have a proper work area, not that I needed one before.
