I meant to post this earlier, but post office mishaps happened. Some of my May stuff were extremely delayed because, I don't know if I mentioned this before, the post office is an hour away from my house one way. So that means it takes a total roundtrip of 2 hours just to pick up my packages. But apparently the counter some of my stuff were dropped to (specifically, the ones from Aussie) is only open on weekdays, so it was really difficult trying to find time to pick them up. T^T Finally I had Friday last week off, so my stuff that had been waiting there for almost a month are finally mine <3

Thanks to delays, what was supposed to be an "I can finally breathe!" June turned into "WALLET-KUN? ARE YOU ALIVE?" June. I had already ordered most of the aftermarket stuff thinking June was gonna be light af, but figure companies (coughGSCcough) had other plans LOL.

May and June are Touken Danshi month for me. I've really scoured the aftermarket to complete my Tourabu collection, and aside from re-releases that I've preordered that are finally released (like Kashuu), I snagged any swordboi that I can find. Hotarumaru is just positively adorable and precious and I love him. <3 Look at how much shorter he is than Kashuu. ;u; I now only have 5 swordbois left to find (still looking for a reasonable price for them) and my Tourabu nendo collection will be up to date!

I am just going to get this out of the way. I am ashamed this thing is even part of my loot. This is my first foray into Bandai; never again. She is on a figma stand because of course Bandai is too damn stingy to provide their action figures with one. She is just a huge disappointment and not worth ANY penny that I paid for her. Even most kids toys have better QC than this thing.

I love Angewomon to bits, so I am extra disappointed. Shame on you Bandai.

On a happier note, I didn't expect Yuuri's casual version nendo to come with an extra head! So of course, the mandatory thing to do is to pose him drunk in a suit.

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/839/43223274212_97059c297e_c.jpg
Isn't he just so sexy, Victor. You know you want him.

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1785/28403003607_bed268cac7_c.jpg

I actually don't know Saber, and this is the first figure I've bought purely for aesthetics because come on. Who can resist this cuteness??? His DX version even comes with an extra head, and that blushing face is just so adorable!

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/846/43223275382_4b93e1d7a1_c.jpg
Look at him. JUST LOOK AT HIM. HOW CAN YOU RESIST DAT CUTENESS EXACTLY.

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1802/42368267855_64cf18c047_c.jpg

The Hanairogoromo scales of Miku and Kaito have been on my wishlist since 5ever, so I am glad I finally managed to snag Kaito. They're both still readily available, but my budget's been stretched to the limit every month because of delays. ToT I might pick up Miku in August. If companies stop delaying, dammit.

But he is just so positively beautiful. Even with a phone picture (because I forgot to take one with my camera oops), his beauty still shines. <3

AmiAmi (June)

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/918/43223272522_85e74c759b_c.jpg

Awww yiiiisssss. Nostalgia and childhood rolled into one. Compared to the embarrassment that is Angewomon, these two have near perfect QC and everything fits and works perfectly and they pose well and they're just so well-made. They look so cool in my cabinet right now. I absolutely love them. I wish Dark Magician Girl was re-released too, dammit. And I will continue to hold out hope for Dark Magician and Blue Eyes White Dragon to be released.

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1770/43223271072_e70ff9a870_c.jpg

More Touken Danshi, of course. I think most of the figures I bought these two months are Tourabu nendos LOL. Hasebe and Higekiri are both positively adorable; I love the way Higekiri's coat hangs off his shoulders. <3

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/833/42368269525_e06f6671d2_c.jpg

And of course, I also bought the beauty that is Nikkari Aoe. Look at his splendor and grace. This figure is perfect and at a great price point too. <3

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1785/43223270092_ca8c60ab35_c.jpg

Yuuri can't be happy without his beloved coach Victor! I am so glad he didn't have to wait too long for his beloved. <3

Gotta get dat couple selfie on Instagram and Twitter~

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1805/43223268302_97569c6df1_c.jpg

I was never into DMMD, but Mink and Clear are precious babies, so of course I had to finally snag him. He's also been on my wishlist since forever, but now I finally have him~ He is just as adorable as I had hoped him to be <3

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1810/42368270475_ce7286a761_c.jpg

I absolutely loved Galko and the anime (Oshiete! Galko-chan), so of course I had to pick her up. Unfortunately, only her nendo really spoke to me; none of the scales released are really my type.

MFC

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/917/29402598188_86447de9f4_c.jpg

Surprise surprise, yet even more Touken Danshi. X'D These three I got from lovely MFC users (I'll list them down at the end of this section), and at very fair prices too! Plus the shipping was super fast. Just due to the post office being so far and being dropped off at a counter that's only open during the weekdays, they were sitting in the post office for nearly a month. Poor babies. ;u;'

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/840/42368260215_ceee63f9fc_c.jpg

RUBYSERPENT_720 also sent me these when I bought Sayo from her. They're such nice freebies and definitely super useful! And she is just so insanely talented with art. Tanya is getting framed and displayed for sure <3

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/842/29402585028_fb8beb25ec_c.jpg

With Clear's arrival, I can finally say my DMMD collection is complete. X'D He is just so adorable I couldn't help but love him.

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/843/29402588548_e67a411144_c.jpg

Best swordboi still doesn't have a full nendo or a scale, so I'mma settle for the nendo petit T^T he is still super adorbs but. WHY IS HE BEING IGNORED GFDI. SOMEONE MAKE MY BEST SWORDBOI ALREADY.

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1785/29402587448_53c02c7512_c.jpg
Look at how tiny and adorbs he is though. <3 He's even tinier than a tiny shota swordboi~


From which users?

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4701/40489299211_e8d656dbdd.jpg

Merch

As usual, keychains and random other merch from various anime I'm into. The Natsume Yuujinchou 10th anniversary tapestry was tinier than I expected, but it's beautiful, colorful, and definitely worth it. <3

https://farm1.staticflickr.com/843/42553822944_416700761e_c.jpg

I also got the Tourabu 1st anniversary artbook and the Ending Theme CD of the Kotetsu brothers. I got it not because of the song, but because these three are my favorite group of swords. Also because NagaHachi is OTP and Urashima is actually their son.


https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4701/40489299211_e8d656dbdd.jpg

Doujins/Manga

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1824/43223245302_3faa78c38b_c.jpg

Kinokuniya FINALLY opened here, so now I have a place where I can get English manga regularly and not have to go to Bangkok or order it online. I picked up the missing volumes I had of Tsubasa and xxxHolic (omnibus versions), and also whatever latest volumes of SnK I was missing.

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1806/43223243012_808d4b5c76_c.jpg

From Surugaya (via FromJapan), I bought the other doujins I've been wanting. This full set of Eidlige Katze im Zimmer and Schwarz Ritter doujins by Cocca were a TOTAL of 500 yen. It was such a steal and I'm so happy, considering two of these books were in the 100+ pages range, and they're pretty thick and nice quality!

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1827/43223240452_945f00ac77_c.jpg

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1827/43223236832_58d1fd47fb_c.jpg

Again, I don't think I've said this enough: NagaHachi is my ultimate TouRabu OTP. Nichika also happens to be my most favorite doujinka, so I bought ALL of her works that have been released so far. Looking forward to her future releases too <3333

(Forgot to mention: I actually preordered her third anthology from C-queen rather than Surugaya. I like supporting the doujinka directly when I can <3)


https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4701/40489299211_e8d656dbdd.jpg

GRAND TOTAL: 19 Figures, 9 random merch, 19 doujins/manga

I think the crowning achievement of these past two months for me was being able to snag most of the nendo swordbois that I was missing for very reasonable and fair prices, in new/amazing conditions. Thank you so much to everyone I bought from here, and to AmiAmi preowned whose aftermarket prices aren't SO crazy lol.

Hopefully next month's loot will be picked up on time- it's going to be another huge one. X'D

Thanks for reading~!

gwendal738-2 (2 месяца назад) #39184648Only the box is neat, tbh. T_T I will whip out my macro lens and do a proper review of her one of these days.
Only ink, by the way! There are no colored pages. :) But if I remember correctly, I think my xxxHOliC ones have some art in color on the front page. I could be wrong though. I don't remember X'D

*nods* if it should nice for like this box should be clear file I'd buy it. :)
Aw, dang. I hope for these manga cover of colors only in big books to show so special and memories.. ;w; oh well. It's fine. :)

gwendal738-2 (3 месяца назад) #37055410OMG yes! You won't be disappointed with him. He's made really well and poses nicely! Plus the options of eyes (a bit creepy when you take it out of the head, but he has 3 sets of eyes looking in different directions) is really great. So many things to do with him, and he's super cool!
(Also, I do stalk your loot posts as well because I love them and I love your love for Kaiba. X'D)

I just got him yay, I can't wait to unbox him for myself :D Aw that's really sweet, thank you! :D

gwendal738-2 (3 месяца назад) #37137010LIST #88564 Here's all the swordbois I am missing~ They'd be super expensive tho ToT They seem to be really unreasonable in the aftermarket. Especially Yamanbagiri. I saw him going for 9k+ on AmiAmi yesterday o.o;;;
Also, no! It's actually a lot more translucent in person. I had the wrong lighting (natural lighting is hard to work with /sobs), so it looks more opaque than it does. I'll try to take pics of it for you later while holding him under a more proper light~


ohh kogi and jiji... those will be difficult hm.. but ok at least i know what to look for~

ahh translucent cape!! yes, those delays were spent perfecting my perfect son~ im all the more excited to get nikki home~

Kirenisa (3 месяца назад) #37122417Woa okay first of all I learned something new, i didn't know that Digimon figure existed!
but anyways very nice haul I can only imagine how much this was all together XD but it's very nice!


Hahaha thank you! It's still within two months' worth of budget, thank god. I was cutting it close though :'D

But yeah... if you're thinking of getting this figure, don't. I might actually do a full review of her just to warn people not to buy her lol. Gotta get out the macro lens and take pics of Bandai's godawful/nonexistent QC.

damedanbo (3 месяца назад) #37128334WOAAAAH so much awesome stuff!! Nice haul! Sorry the Angewomon figure was so meh... I kept eyeing her and thinking about it, but then thought "it's not going to be good, is it?"
Love all the nendos especially, and the Yugioh figmas! So much great stuff!


Thank you~ But yeah, she is no good at all. T^T And for the price point, she's a big regret of mine. I preordered her for like 6k+ since I was so stoked Angewomon's finally getting an action figure. But nope. 6k basically down the drain @@;
