AmiAmi Grab Box (small, for Boys)AmiAmi Grab Box (small, for Boys)

MaakieMaakie4 anos atrásLoot
I received my AmiAmi Grab box (medium, for Boys) about a week ago, but because of lack of time and internet (I was moving), it took a while for me to have this post up! I hope you guys still enjoy and before I show anything...

I'm up for trades!
With the items that say underneath them that they are available, I would be very interested to trade (or sell) them! My personal favorite series where I would love to trade items for are: Mecha Musume (Humikane Shimada), Strike Witches, Kantai Collection, Baccano!, Chrno Crusade, Nurse Witch Komugi, Moetan (and POP works/designs in general), Hideyoshi Kinoshita (from Baka to Test), Military girls / Girls in uniform, Kodomo no Jikan and cute loli's in general. So if you have anything from those shows/characters/interests and see something interesting here, please leave a comment or send me an PM! Thank you!

Let's start the unboxing!

I got an AmiAmi thank you card this time! T^T With my previous box BLOG #14660 I didn't get one and it was rumored that the people with the worst boxes from that round didn't get cards...so seeing a card on top was a good sign!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-h5FQAaHDGOk/U90Hbck8lZI/AAAAAAAAA5A/isuKzCpIQ8I/s912/IMG_3443.JPG
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-A5oHXi07d7M/U90HdhPyvoI/AAAAAAAAA5M/s7fQKmPlGDI/s912/IMG_3444.JPG
Such cute artwork~! I'm wondering what I should do with the card...it's too big to keep in a trading card folder...

The items!

Now the real stuff starts! When I opened the box I was quite surprised at the first item I saw...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-3K2nmV1yngI/U90HerrAWCI/AAAAAAAAA5U/O__J5khV7IQ/s720/IMG_3445.JPG
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-nBzDeBZgMo4/U90HgdJATLI/AAAAAAAAA5c/ydZPQfEEWBA/s912/IMG_3446.JPG
...because it's an item I already own! When ITEM #54950 was announced I wanted her so badly I pre-ordered the limited edition of the game. This booklet and CD are a part of this limited edition. The left part has pages with artwork and on the right is the soundtrack CD of the game! Quite a great item if you ask me, I hope I can find a good home for it!
Link: It's a part of ITEM #97258
-> Sold!

Next up was this Ichiban Kuji Lottery item with Ranka Lee from Macross! New and sealed, and very cute! I'm not a big Macross fan, though...so she's up for trade/sale!
Link: ITEM #164788
-> For trade/sale

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Qmh1lhGD-CY/U90HjeCMm-I/AAAAAAAAA5s/wHm5ik4Lof0/s912/IMG_3448.JPG
Then I got this medium sized surprise! It's a prize figure from Love Hina, made by SEGA. It's quite an old one, which explains the box-style you nowadays don't see anymore!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-XUvENHzgUvc/U90HlVZM7tI/AAAAAAAAA54/ed0LCj-kPXI/s912/IMG_3449.JPG
Looks like it's an set of three if you want to complete the set!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-FcToWpWTpgE/U90HnALk6sI/AAAAAAAAA6E/pIFSoLHu7G4/s720/IMG_3451.JPG
Next up is what to me looked like Pinky;St, but turned out to be from a line called "Figumate". It's from the series Quiz Magic Academy. Looks like all the parts can be swapped inbetween others from the set. This one comes with a base, one body, one head, two pairs of legs, a desk and a chair. A small classroom set!

-> For trade/sale

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-XeYVaihF-BE/U90HqI2ATKI/AAAAAAAAA6Q/4KDJARVp2aM/s912/IMG_3452.JPG
Then there was this cutie! I like her quite a bit, but I'm not fan of the series, so not planning on keeping her.
Link: ITEM #90043
-> Sold

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pVUKag2dib4/U90Hqi0BkWI/AAAAAAAAA6U/C3-512cWTt8/s912/IMG_3453.JPG
Next up was this Madoka mascot hanger! When I opened up the box I was hoping for either Mami or Kyubey, but Homura was inside. It's not that I don't like Homura, but I decided I would only keep it if it was from either of my favorite characters, so...
Link: ITEM #97546
-> Traded!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-1N9AGIRR318/U90HsOfRH2I/AAAAAAAAA6c/VDqsJ6sI-FI/s912/IMG_3454.JPG
This was quite a surprise! It is a rubber strap from AKB0048. For the people not familiar with it: It's an anime based on a Japanese idol band consisting of 48 singers. Looks like I got the rubber strap from the main girl!
Link: ITEM #180305
-> Sold!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-w3FYcPL1E00/U90HcHYV0bI/AAAAAAAAA5E/dXIZyG87NBA/s912/IMG_3442.JPG
Up next I found this huge pile in my box! I saw they were K-ON! Nendoroid Petits, I recognized them because I used to own those in the past, but sold them. Looks like the universe wants me to get them back, haha! The assembling took quite a while, but here we have it!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-q4pqWrN2Pz0/U90HtuUTp8I/AAAAAAAAA6k/lpAF_L0UOiA/s912/IMG_3456.JPG
It contained all the K-ON! Nendoroid Petits from the Beach Set, including the secret! Two of them (Tsumugi and Yui) have a snapped peg, but that can easily be glued. The set is otherwise in good condition!
Link: ITEM #42049 , ITEM #42046 , ITEM #42047 , ITEM #42048 , ITEM #42040 and ITEM #42045 (prefer to trade/sell as set)
-> For trade/sale

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-lIzUj0a_Z0A/U90HvXj1-BI/AAAAAAAAA6w/9DLmSxgKAb8/s912/IMG_3457.JPG
And all the K-ON! Nendoroid Petits with their band equipment, including the secret! At first I thought that Ritsu was missing a part of her drums, but I found it later on lying loosely in the box (so it's not on the picture now, but the set is complete). It also came with one flattened box. None of these have broken parts. I think it's great to have such a big and complete set again, but I really told myself I stopped collecting from K-ON!, so they are all available! (Fun fact: My previous grab box also had stuff from K-On! :P )
Link: ITEM #41792 , ITEM #42039 , ITEM #41791 , ITEM #42038 , ITEM #41793 and ITEM #57477 (prefer to trade/sell as set)
-> SOLD!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-QgJsfpzt0ik/U90Hv1UtjLI/AAAAAAAAA60/jY8Hrwb1-kg/s720/IMG_3458.JPG
Then I found this Meiko. Which is also quite ironic, because I just sold my other Meiko a few weeks before ITEM #7880 . Looks like my grab box is full of likewise items I just traded/sold from my own collection! :P
Link: ITEM #16462
-> Sold!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-T5UZh5GcGic/U90Hxo1DaaI/AAAAAAAAA68/5_X54cxmqdM/s912/IMG_3459.JPG
A Graphig++ from Saber! Especially her expression is very cute, but I'm just not into the Graphig-style. :(
Link: ITEM #118017
-> For trade/sale

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JwNABj_MJaU/U90Hz21kUcI/AAAAAAAAA7E/ADBdynPQzjA/s912/IMG_3461.JPG
And another Graphig++! This one is from Hidamari Sketch.

When I saw this box I decided I would only keep it if I got this cutie ITEM #94821 Instead I got Rider. I like his character design, but I wouldn't use or display a strap of him. He's better off somewhere else. ^^
Link: ITEM #94820
-> Sold!/b]

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-RLjS9eoS21M/U90H299Cg2I/AAAAAAAAA7c/UY53IFxmqTU/s912/IMG_3463.JPG
A figure from One Piece. I'm not really fan from the series. It comes with a collector's card and the figure has some nice details for the size it is!
Link: ITEM #164281
-> For trade/sale

18+ in spoiler. View spoilerHide spoilerWhen I took this one out of the shipping box, my boyfriend and I gave each other "the look" and I said:
"Am I the only one that thinks it looks like...?"
"No, I also think it looks like that."
"Yeah."
*nod*


https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-c84MMdEUi4s/U90H4MefHvI/AAAAAAAAA7o/9_Q6B10nIFY/s720/IMG_3465.JPG
And after that both of us agreed that Asuka herself was pretty good looking, though! She can also be used or displayed seperately from the Angels. I like Evangelion myself, but prefer to see the cast in their plugsuits. :)
Link: ITEM #100047
-> SOLD

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-FG4GzDjEPxU/U90H5PCQB7I/AAAAAAAAA74/eoRW22t5yfY/s720/IMG_3466.JPG
This one I have seen a few times before online! I really like the art on the box!

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-57kajR_DM3o/U90H55w__wI/AAAAAAAAA70/sMGvbROHhM8/s720/IMG_3467.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-l7VXBB_2-vQ/U90H6dM3RNI/AAAAAAAAA78/PWyv_UzlEGg/s720/IMG_3468.JPG
The figure is way more detailed than I expected! You can see her bellybutton and hipbones sculpted! She also comes with additional catears. I'm not familiar with the series, but I have had ITEM #106 on my wishlist for quite some years. I'm doubting a lot about this figure if I should keep her or not. For now I will put her on available to see if people are interested in her!

Final Thoughts

This was my second AmiAmi Grab Box and my first pre-owned grab box. Although I don't have any items I really would like to keep, I think this box is great with it's contents! I hope I can get some nice trades out of it and I'm already excited for the next round of grab boxes! :) I love surprises! :)

VioFitz (4 anos atrás) #2304602That's a nice stuffs you got there! I personally liked the Love Hina although, the posing of her reminds me into a bad remembrance.. Lol, that detailed body on the last stuff, very nice one for collections additions actually.

I'm afraid the Love Hina figure will have very high international shipping costs, but if you're interested in her, let me know!

Yeah that last one, I'm still doubting if I will keep her or not!! Her details are so nice, but I'm not familiar with the series...

Aldena (4 anos atrás) #2290334I absolutely agree! and bidding is usually reasonable, except on marktplaats aka greedy-plaats :/
Oh dear, I usually take them in a seperate bag/suitcase so that they're secured tight. Which is also handy to take new loots back home with. I do bring like 3+a kigu but most of the time that fits in 1 big suitcase. Expect the cases of large props, those are always a pain to drag along...
Offfcoooouuurrseeee that's your favorite, you Mecha Musume fangirl haha :P
Vengeful Spirit: Vestmenst of the Fallen Princes Set from Dota 2, here's an image to make it easier for you: dota2.gamepedia... I'll send you a PM for the phone nmbers because that sounds like a good idea C:
Hehe! You'll see, I made sure you didn't have it yet *u*


Martplaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaats! D: I hate that place, but I sell way more of my stuff there than anywhere else, so I keep on selling there. T^T Even for the smallest things people try to bid lower than you already are. D: If it's just a few euros off or free shipping on something expensive I will think about it, but I've had people sending me emails for 5 euro bids on scaled figures and action figures in as-good-as-new condition. -.-' And just a few mins ago someone asked if she can have 0,25 euro off from a figure lol. Well I'll agree with that, but I can't understand how someone can be so greedy to especially asks for 25 cents off. :P

I mostly have one big suitcase + 1 or 2 seperate bags for my wigs (most of my wigs are styled pretty intricately so they would damage when put in a suitcase). I can't really take more with me because I have to use public transport and just don't have enough hands. :P I know the pain of big props! When I went to Animecon with my transformed Elizabeth costume (only the mecha parts already take up 3 moving boxes @.@ and then I had my regular suitcase) I had to get a ride, because it would have been near impossible to take that with me on public transport. TT^TT But I'm working hard on getting my own drivers' license and car! That way I could tkae bigger costumes with me to conventions and also wear my transformed Elizabeth more instead of having the untransformed one with me so much and doing almost nothing with the prop and leg that took me so much time to make. :P

Shhh, nothing wrong with being fan of Mecha Musume. ;3

Character looks nice! :O Are you also painting your skin and/or using a bodysuit?

Oh~ But I have some Mecha Musume items that I own, but are not in the database/on my profile because I forget every time to put them in the database. xD So hopefully it's nothing of that! xD (Most stuff I own and that is not on here is older stuff, and I own one Kan Colle phone screen cleaner.)

alibalbal (4 anos atrás) #2290355That's pretty awesome, thanks for sharing. Are they still for sale on the site? What would I have to search to look for them? :o

No problem, glad you enjoyed! ^w^ They are not on the site anymore and when they are, they get sold out pretty quickly most of the times. You can look for them by using the term "grab box" in the search field. Most of the times someone on MFC will make a blog post about it too when they are up again!

Leo_Otaku (4 anos atrás) #2290746I suppose I'm just bitter about it since it has taken Touhou's spotlight for now. Since they are based on existing ships of a period won't they run out of ships?
I'm meaning as an over arching story beyond historic backgrounds. Perhaps I haven't looked into it enough? I feel personally, the designs are very samey as in sailor seifuku, Japanese traditional and military navy wear. The colour palette is very similar too.
As for popularity, I'm only assuming from what I've seen in previous franchises. Only speculation.
I didn't mean to take over the blog on this discussion sorry :(


Hrmmm...correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not in the Touhou fandom anymore), but to me it felt like Touhou was already slowing down on merchandise and amount of fans in the last +/- 2 years? And Kan Colle has only been active for about half a year. So to me it doesn't sound directly relevant because of the too big gap of time between the popularities.

Well, the anime has to start yet and the game doesn't tell much about the storylines. Personally I hope it will be a bit like Strike Witches, where they also give a lot of information about the specific vehicle they are modeled after. In Strike Witches it's also that the characters and the planes they represent are relevant to their country and personality. I'm hoping Kan Colle will do the same with warships, but we won't know until the anime starts. It could happen that it's one big fanservice-party and not much historical or accurate information will be shown.

Limited (4 anos atrás) #2290769It's always interesting to see what comes out of these boxes, even though I'd never buy one myself. (I'm sure everyone hears this already.) And that last figure of Hazuki was pretty random since I don't know that series. Pulling it pretty close with that cape there. xD
Pff, now you have a hint of what it's been like for shmup players, when the genre was overrun by Touhou fans long ago.


Yeah, I can understand how not everyone would be interested in a box of their own. ;) But seeing other people's surprises, especially if they are related to your hobby, should be fun! :) Oh, maybe I should have put that figure on NSFW? But there is actually just nothing visible, haha!

bd83 (4 anos atrás) #2289434I respectfully disagree. Maybe the people who became fans because of the anime will gravitate towards newer anime, which is normal, but the majority of the Kancolle fandom certainly will not die out after the anime. The anime isn't the root of its popularity - the browser game is. (The anime is just icing on the cake...)
The designs are also plenty creative, if you know the background/details/history of the ships the girls are based on.
I understand Kancolle isn't everyone's cup of tea and that's fine & to be expected. But to make a generalization like that is...surprising. :)

Maakie (4 anos atrás) #2290244Yeah, it's better to start high and then eventually lower if something doesn't sell. ---- and I always have way too much stuff with me because I always have 3 costumes with me to a con like that! xD So I think I will stick to taking manga and smaller figures with me this year!
Konata has quite some cosplay figures indeed! ^w^ With my personal favorite: ITEM #99405 :3
Ohh~ With which costume are you entering on friday? :) My lectures aren't planned yet, but there's a high chance both of them will be on the saturday! Should we otherwise (in PM) give each other our phone numbers so we can just text on the con to meet when we have time?
A gift?!

Aldena (4 anos atrás) #2290004I should likely add he was a die-hard Youmu fanboy though. But hey if they reaaallyy dont sell you can always drop the price a little after some time. Though I'm pretty sure that she'll even sell at the bring and buy for like 45 on Abunai.
Konata has quite a few cosplay figures already I think? I mean, I got konata cosplaying as Saber in my grab box xD
I'd love to visit one of them but it really depends on the time and day. I'm enterign the Eurocos compo on Friday so I'll be quite busy around those times especially. The other days should be ok I think. I'll also have a little gift for you when we meet *u*


Yeah, it's better to start high and then eventually lower if something doesn't sell. What also happened multiple times to me is that I had something up and would get an PM or email with a lower bid that was still okay to me. ;) I'm a bit weary of putting big (boxed) figures at the Bring and Buy because in the past I managed to damage two figures at two different times while travelling to the convention. I use public transport so it happens a lot I need to stow my suitcase away...and I always have way too much stuff with me because I always have 3 costumes with me to a con like that! xD So I think I will stick to taking manga and smaller figures with me this year!

Tipsynaruto (4 anos atrás) #2290010My bad. In any case, there really wasnt a need for Aldena to apologise. was just a discussion.

All is good all is well! :D
