New Figures and more for December

I’m surprised that quite a few figures came in December.  Despite the size of the loot, I actually didn’t “spend” that much in December.  Well, that’s because everything you see here except for the provocative Miku Morizaki were paid for in previous months.  I didn’t buy anything during boxing day because I had to work…damn you!! *waves fist*

Alter’s colossal Fate T. Harlaown -True Sonic Form-, Good Smile Company TVCM Miku Hatsune, 2x figma Miku Hatsune Live Stage Ver., Giga Pulse Miku Morizaki, and 2 IDOLM@STER CDs came in December.  In fact, the two CDs came in yesterday.

Before I forget, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

It’s great to be talking about something I like other than figures here.  I’ve been eyeing on the Overmaster CD ever since I found out about it, but like the cheap bastard I am, I didn’t want to fork out ¥1,200 for it.  The last CD I bought was two years ago, wait that was a limited edition vinyl, so the last CD I bought was three years ago when I still supported the HK music industry.

I figured now’s the time to buy the Overmaster CD when CDJapan sent me an email with a ¥500 Christmas coupon code.  Like the good customer I am, I browsed around for more IDOLM@STER CDs and that’s when I saw this “Limited Edition” MASTER SPECIAL WINTER.

I’ve been looking around for the Christmas Special they did a couple years back, but the price ain’t pretty for that one.  So I jumped on this one instead.  Hey, you can’t go wrong with Miki, Chihaya, Azusa and Takane.  And as a bonus, the twins are in it too!  I don’t like their singing but they’re cute.  Oh, and Yayoi’s in it as well.

I don’t understand what they’re singing about, but I still like some of their music.  I’m not into their cutesy music because I find them to be rather annoying; the “I WANT TO SHOOT SOMEONE!” kind of annoying.  Instead, I really like their contemporary style music.  That’s why I like Chihaya and Azusa, they don’t sing in a fiendish voice that irritates my ears.  Miki sings in a childish voice sometimes, but it’s not overly irritating like the others.

I’ve listened to OVERMASTER (the song) on my ipod for 258 times according to iTunes (plus how many hundred times on my computer), and I’m not sick of it yet.  The CD only has three songs, but they’re really nice ones…coming from the series that is.  I hope the 961 girls will get a scaled figure release in the future.  They look lovely.

So what did you get during your Christmas month?

    I’m highly resisting the urge to look into idolm@ster Dx definitely don’t want another addiction to feed Dx

    I didn’t really buy anything for December, but my Saber Lily Nendo and my Evangelion earphones arrived then. LOL.

    Still waiting for my WonFes figma Miku so I can sell her Dx

      And I was planning on more posts about the IDOLM@STER…

      It’s poison, especially if you’re into the cute stuff. Even if you’re not into the cutesy style music like me, Miki, Chihaya, Azusa, and one of my newest favourite Takane will do the poisoning. Definitely looking into their CDs now. :)

    3 songs in the CD? That’s not much :P

    Yeah, sometimes there’s a song I like, so I put it on repeat on Media Player, or more likely these days, just hit “Play” again every time it ends. Sometimes one song for 2-3 days, until it is set deep within my bones.

    You only purchased your last music CD 3 years ago? Does that include western music? O.O I purchased a lot more CDs than that the last 3 years, maybe as much as 30-40. Gregorian music, celtic music, metal, pop, rock, alternative, indie, the lot.

    So much Miku, heh.
    I didn’t buy much of anything this month, but since there’s no Christmas for me to celebrate, it’s not that surprising, eh? I did get a book from a friend in the states though, which was nice.

    Happy new civilian year Tommy :)

      There’s actually five tracks, but two of them are music only. I like all three songs, so it’s okay.

      Yes, my last CD purchase was three years ago. I don’t listen to that much western music, and if I do, it would be in the form of a mp3. I see CD as a collector’s item now because there’s no point in having one other than showing your support for that artist. I’m more into Hong Kong pop, and my cousin would buy the CDs from the artists I like, so there’s no point for me to buy another one since we live in the same house. I do buy concert DVDs though, they’re worth it.

      It’s Miku madness month. I didn’t order that World is Mine Miku though. ^^;;

      Happy New Year!!

    In December ? Hum I did not buy many figure, just Drossel Nendoroid, Rankz Lee Ichiban Kuji and one gathering (a second hand) One of my christmas gift is C.C Ichiban Kuji by Banpresto. But with delays, If I will not cancell two or three figure my january month will cost 367€ >_< I hesitate between figure : Sheryl Nome & Yosagu Sora (Megahouse), Noumi & Mio (Alter), Corticarte (Orchid), Rina Ogata (GSC) and Mio again (KotoxMovic). My boyfriend preordered Noumi too, I think I will cancell her.. But for others.. I hate delays.. Only three figure were initially for January (others november and december). Sniiiif

    • 6 Tommy 01/04/2010 at 00:08

      WOW, those are some rare figures you got for December. I look forward to your reviews.

      I canceled Yosagu Sora because I think she’s one of those figures that will go on sale. I think Corticarte will go on sale as well. :D I’m actually surprised that Sora and Sheryl N.A. ver haven’t been released yet since MegaHouse haven’t delayed any figures (that I know of) this year.

      January will be an expensive month for me too if there’s no more delay with figure releases. I have Alter’s Nanoha, GSC Canaan, and Nendo Chiaki. But it’s nothing compared to your list. ^^;;

      • 7 Leonia 01/05/2010 at 05:18

        I canceled yesterdays Corticarte, and I will cancell Noumi and Sheryl probably (Sheryl is not my figure style, but I wanted her because I had Ranka N.A version).

        You will have an expensive month too ^^ I will look forward you Nanoha review ^^ She seems really nice but I don’t like the character (Fate powa !!)

        • 8 Tommy 01/07/2010 at 09:30

          I don’t like the N.A. Sheryl that much neither.

          It’s going to be expensive, but it’ll be the last of my “expensive month”. Or I hope it’ll be that way. ^^;

    Well, December was a quiet month for me except for the just arrived 1/4 Kos-Mos, didn’t get anything at the Dolpa, or couldn’t get anything to be precise.

    Again, Happy New Year

    Didn’t know you got 2 figma Miku Live Stage ver. I got one too, but I don’t think I will touch the papercrafts though.

    The CD with 5 songs sounds resembles a single of some kind, but I am not familiar with these stuff at all, along with IDOLM@STER. But it’s always great to have a passion that not everybody has, just as my interest towards military which I don’t bring about often.

    • 12 Tommy 01/04/2010 at 00:12

      I got jibbed. I thought the wings on her back were made from plastic!!

      I’ll try my luck with the papercrafts, that stage thingy is one of the reason why I got her. I bought two because I wanted to give one stage set to MikuMikku Kagamin. ^^;;;

      I have many hobbies and collect many things, figures just happens to be my newest one. “orz

    December was the month I plunged myself into another bottomless pit – Nendoroids.

    I used to buy CDs, be it JPop, Taiwan Pop or occasionally OSTs. But over the years I somehow stopped buying them… Invested on figures instead. ><

    • 14 Tommy 01/04/2010 at 00:13

      How many did you buy? You can’t possibly plunge yourself into a bottomless pit unless you’re going to collect them all.

      • 15 enrius 01/04/2010 at 08:48

        December arrived Nendoroids – 5. I know it’s just a few. ^^

        I was referring to the potential buy in the future. ^^

        Especially Touhou exclusive… ><

  7. 17 Lylibellule 01/04/2010 at 03:04

    HUhu, i missed this post… damn!

    Happy new year! Best Wishes for 2010!

    You receive quite good loots. Especially with Fate who take as much room as all the other shipments. LooooL
    Nice of CDJapan to offer you a buying coupon. CD cover you choose is quite pretty.

    I think on my side, i didn’t buy CS’s for almost 2 years just like you.

    For mid-december, i had 2 orders to pay to nihonju who’s included Allen (at least) Tsukasa Blullet Pretty Sound, Miku supercell, Nendo Drossel et Shishido Akiha by Wave. I didn’t received it unfortunately. Customs must be up to something ^^

  8. 19 anonymous_object 01/05/2010 at 23:28

    Nice stash of December loot. Thinking back, I don’t think I received any ordered figures in December. All the ones that were supposed to be released were delayed :(
    I am expecting an order from Hobby Search any day now and it will included a couple late December releases. Can’t wait :D

  9. 21 Optic 01/09/2010 at 01:40

    The cdjapan coupons are just ‘poison’ to me as they are asking me to buy more. Off course, there are always great sales happening at times and there are always 1 or 2 things that tickles my fancy.

    Dam, listening to OVERMASTER over 258 times and still not bored of it? What’s ur secret? ;)

  10. 23 at 01/12/2010 at 22:46

    No Anime or Game series can’t be complete without a x-mas cd. ;)
