Best Goods from Japan

Hello MFC!
Today I bring you a loot post. :3 This is probably going to be my only haul post forever, since I rarely buy enough things in a month for it to be worth showing off... but anyway, onto the main attraction!


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/05/17/995741.jpegObligatory shipping box picture! On the side lurks Nendoroid Isabelle for size comparison purposes. :p
It took a while for all the stuff to arrive, so some of the boxes have been thrown away by now. Which is why this picture is pieced together... and a whole box drawn in... OTL

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/05/17/995743.jpegKotobukiya's Shiozaki Haruno (ITEM #133590) and Melty (ITEM #69041). Melty because of that goth-loli charm, and Haruno because she has that scooter. Okay, so Haruno herself's pretty cute too, but gosh I'm a sucker for model vehicles. *_*

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/05/17/995744.jpegArcadia's Violet (ITEM #134701), sculpted by the fabulous French Doll <3. I don't generally buy 18+ figures, but her sculpt is SO GORGEOUS I could not resist.

Case in point:

Definitely one of the most beautiful faces I've ever seen! ♥‿♥

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/05/17/995745.jpegNendoroid Irine (ITEM #117384) and Alter's Matsumae Ohana (ITEM #99001). These are actually presents from a close friend (she ran it through me though, "just in case" haha) as a very belated Christmas/birthday present. Irine was released near the end of April so both her and Ohana got caught up in Golden Week shenanigans. I mostly wanted Irine for her gold trimming, and was slightly disappointed to see that it wasn't exactly the bright foil-gold GSC showed in the promo pictures. And Ohana because I have some pretty fond memories of Hanasaku Iroha back when it was airing. It's good that her price was pretty decent too. :p

Misc. shops

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/05/17/995746.jpegFrom Terraformer, Alter's Zelos Wilder (ITEM #158152); HLJ, Banpresto's MSP Kuroko (ITEM #181253); and from *****, Little World 2 Cover Girl garage kit (ITEM #193711). Zelos was a biiit of an impulse buy, since I didn't even know there was a figure of him... and when I did get a look, I was completely charmed! *nervous laughter* I also can't wait to assemble the GK. The sculpt is exactly the kind of cute-girl I'm super weak against. And yes it's a re-cast. Unfortunately her 25k price tag was too much for me. u_u

As for Kuroko,

He looks fine right?

Unfortunately, unlike my fellow purchasers, my copy came with a bad spray-tan. The worst was the heavy-handed gradient inexplicably on the lower part of his face:

Is that a 5 o'clock shadow? Kuroko's fallen on hard times!
(a.k.a. what he looked like out of the box. D:)

It bothered me so much that I sanded off most of the paint on his face and repainted him so things made a little more sense.

After!

Of course, since this is a prize figure, it comes with its share of seamlines and paint mishaps. I took this chance to fix those too. Some WIP pictures under the cut if you're interested! :)

I am quite satisfied with everything, even despite the extra work on Kuroko. :)

Thanks for reading, and until next time!

S12576 anos atrás#2150405Your repaint looks really good!
Thanks!

roronoa_zoro696 anos atrás#2150409Too bad you paid for a figure and had to do their job and fix the flaws,msp line will be perfect if there was a serious QC.
Yea right? It's a real shame because his sculpt is REALLY FREAKING GOOD, like scale figure quality, but his painting really sucks. What a waste... u_u

NemsEngelAceSasu6 anos atrás#2150222Nice haul. And nice repaint also. ^^
Thanks!

gamergibbons6 anos atrás#2150248Nice loot! The work you did on the prize figure was fantastic, however mistakes like that on the original figure seem to be defects, the shading on the face for example seems like he has a beard! You should totally consider commissions to fix up certain prize figures for extra money, I know a lot of people on MFC have early-day prize figures that would love to be converted into something that looks a lot higher quality : 3
While that sounds interesting, I would be too scared of making irreversible mistakes to work on someone else's figure. @_@

angelbott6 anos atrás#2150299Nice loot. xD
I just look at first photo of boxes I thought like "Aw finally cartoon toon box arrive!~" haha sorry. ^^; orz
they are nice figures. ^^

It would be completely wild (and creative) if stores used cartoon-style boxes lol. I'd never be able to throw that away.
