Jan 2015 Loot - FigmendoJan 2015 Loot - Figmendo

CantisamaCantisama3 anos atrásLoot
I had a few figures arrive in January so I thought I would share pics.

Most of these figures won't be unboxed now due to space constraints. I will open a few that I can't wait on ~

Let's start with this big box from AmiAmi. I didn't plan things well so I ended up having to use EMS instead of SAL due to size limitations. Glad the dollar to yen rate is doing so well ^^;

Figma Saber 2.0: ITEM #198337
Nendo Snake: ITEM #198330
Nendo Homucifer: ITEM #239208
Figma Motoko: ITEM #198354
Petit Yui: ITEM #146248
Petit Hitagi: ITEM #157813

Well it looks like I'm addicted to Nendos and Figma. The rest of my loot is similar to this :P

This is my first Figma Saber. I'm glad they did an updated release vs trying to get the older release at a higher price.

Nendo Snake looks freaking awesome! That alternate PS1 head, lol.

Nendo Homucifer asked for my soul. When I said no, she took it by force ._.
I actually haven't seen the movie she is from, just the original TV series. Looking forward to the dub release.

Hell yes, a GitS SAC Motoko Figma! She will be opened and discussed below.

I would rather have a Nendo Petit Yui, but this will do. She actually ended up bigger than I expected, almost the size of a Nendo. As her Nendo parents are anxiously awaiting her arrival, I will open her today ^^

I already have the Kotobukiya 1/8 Koimonogatari Hitagi ITEM #197619 When I saw this petit version pop up on AmiAmi pre-owned, I wanted to display them together.

FuRyu Bath Cleaning Sonico: ITEM #207159
Banpresto Homura Black Dress: ITEM #219432

This is my 5th FuRyu Sonico prize. She was a last minute purchase since I knew she could fit SAL with Homura. I don't know much about Sonico, but I do like her line of prizes. Very affordable and well done. Hope I like the anime to support gathering this mini collection.

Another Homura from the movies I haven't seen yet. A cool-beauty pose. Pre-ordered the moment I saw her.

Figma Levi Cleaning: ITEM #227039
Nendo Sayaka School: ITEM #227041
Nendo Kyouko Casual: ITEM #227040
Nendo Wo-class: ITEM #227037

These took a long time to get to the US. I paid in early November, but didn't receive until January. Well I'm happy to have them now.

I would have bought Kyouko casual alone, but I don't mind Sayaka school joining along. I think I have all of the Madoka Nendos now minus Madoka and Homura school versions. Normally my "complete the set" tendency would entice me more, but I have so many Madoka figures already that it's no biggie. Will probably get them eventually.

Nendo Wo-class was a wildcard for me as I've never played KanColle. She looks so damn cute that I had to pick her up.

-AmiAmi-
Nendo Taiga: ITEM #75278
Nendo Sinon: ITEM #235669
Petit Shizuru: ITEM #81506
Petit Eiko: ITEM #81509

All of these will be unboxed below.

I love S1 of Squid Girl and wish there was a better figure of Shizuru. I guess this petit will do. Eiko was also available so I grabber her too.

Nendo Renge: ITEM #190729

Last minute purchase. I am a big fan of slice-of-life comedies, so this will be a series I'm sure to enjoy. Renge seems like the type of Nendo that if you don't pick up now will be expensive later. I grabbed HS's last stock.

Group box shot.

It was hard to fit all the loot in one pic so I turned the boxes sideways. As you can see, lots of Nendos and Figmas. When I started collecting, I was only interested in scales, but I've grown to also enjoy the posability of Figma and cuteness of Nendo.

Now let's see a few of these unboxed.

"Please sir, may I have some more?"

<3 Palmtop Tiger

Nendo Taiga may be lacking in parts, but she is incredibly cute and true to character. This was a AmiAmi PO B/B purchase and came in great condition. Slight tear on the box and a minor mark on the side of her shirt (most likely a factory defect rather than previous owner damage).

Also ordered Kotobukiya 1/6 Taiga Last Episode ITEM #40568 from HLJ (they randomly had one in stock, lucky me). I wouldn't mind one more of her, either Ques Q tiger costume ITEM #64148 or Max Factory sitting pose ITEM #50

Awww, so bashful ~v~

GSC did an excellent job with Sinon. I couldn't find any notable defects. She comes with two scarves. The one shown here has a joint for each end and is posable. The other scarf is a single piece so that when she is lying down in sniper position you don't see any seams.

Her sniper comes with detachable bipod. The trigger handle is removable to makes it much easier to pose with since some of her hands come with handle already in place.

It was hard to choose which pose to go with. I went with shy since I have her Sega prize in route with a more serious pose.

So glad GSC decided to revisit Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex. Motoko translates well fo Figma form. I was surprised to see she comes with two breast parts (a first for me on any Figma), one of which is slightly perkier and better for action shots. -Correction- As pointed out in the comments, the secondary breast piece is for kneeling poses.

Quality wise there are some notable defects. The hands in particular have plenty of paint spots. I also noticed a small paint defect on her default hair piece, default chest, and a slight mold defect on her hip. These aren't deal breakers but a bit disappointing considering how great she looks overall.

On a side note, at Walmart the other day I noticed pocky on the shelf. After seeing the popularity of pocky in pretty much every high school manga/anime ever, I wanted to try some. It's good! Not a snack I would go out of my way for, but something I would grab if I need a chocolate fix.

If only I can find some melon bread locally... (anyone know of a place?)

Group shot of the figures I opened today. You can see how big "petit" Yui is. If I can find a place to put these, maybe I can open some more of this loot.

That was a nice start to the new year. Looking forward to what's coming next (even if I don't have the space).

Buffy6 (3 anos atrás) #2704141Do you have a FYE near you? They usually have a few different kinds. Saw cookies and cream there and green tea too. Saw a few others too I think. But, the only one near me is farther away. Not really close. Wegmans have them too. But, only Strawberry, Chocolate, and I believe Almond Crush. They also have Pepero, the Korean version, which is almost the same and is said to have existed first or something? Not sure.
I should have an FYE around here. Thanks for the info.

Buffy6 (3 anos atrás) #2704141Oh. Melon "bread". Sorry I can't read right I guess. lol I thought you meant Pocky. Well, now you have more knowledge on it. lol
Yeah, like in Shakugan no Shana and a lot of other high school animes. I don't even know what they mean by "melon"... like honeydew melon? Whatever it is I want to try it ^^

StephieHerbert (3 anos atrás) #2703787Wow that's a really great haul! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks!

moonlight119 (3 anos atrás) #2703818I can't say Pocky is delicious. But it's really fun to eat.
Great loot, btw. :)

Yeah, delicious is going too far. Should have just said "good". It's cool to see so many people have tried it already. This was seriously the first time I've noticed it in a store.

I heard of an anime store downtown that may sell melon bread. Really want to see why Shana loves it so much.

Moro (3 anos atrás) #2703896You can use a magic eraser on any sized spot as long as you can get the wet eraser to properly contact the surface.
I wouldn't be able to access the mark on her chest. I could do her hands but would likely rub some black paint off.

Cantisama (3 anos atrás) #2703790I always have a white eraser and blush brush (for dusting) when I unbox. Motoko came with some paint transfers on her shirt and pants but was able to get them off. For her other paint issues, they may be too small for me to fix without making things worse.
Is it possible to use magic eraser on a dot sized area? Would love to get a small bit of paint off the skin of her default breast part.

Moro (3 anos atrás) #2703780As far as paint defects, have you tried fixing them yourself? A Mr. Clean magic eraser has been sufficient to remove paint defects on almost every figure I've gotten that has them. A bit trickier on very small parts, but doable.

Cantisama (3 anos atrás) #2703769Well I hadn't tried it yet until a week ago, lol. I didn't know they sell it in US, and I never bothered importing. Glad I finally got to try it.
GSC is very good with replacements. As far as defects go, Motoko's are smaller than the ones I usually complain to GSC for. May contact them later at least for her breast and maybe her hip. I don't know if they would want to send me a complete set of hands, but pretty much every one has a defect in the black of the glove >_>

Moro (3 anos atrás) #2703765Asking a bunch of anime geeks if they've ever tried Pocky is analogous to asking hardcore gamers if they've tried Mountain Dew. A very silly question.
It's a shame your Major had defects, mine is perfect. Thought of emailing GSC about any of the problems? They are good with replacing parts in new releases.
By the way, the alternate set of breasts is specifically for crouching poses as they cut a lower profile.
