Yaaay all my loot has finally arrived and I can write my obligatory loot post! o3o Let's get started with them big ol' boxes!

http://i.imgur.com/RqY4Drdl.jpg
Wh-what do you mean these boxes look like they've already been opened? I-it's not like I ripped them open the minute I got them, I totally waited for you guys before opening them OuO;;
Here we see four boxes from AmiAmi, one from Hobby Link Japan and one from Mandarake. These weren't all supposed to show up in the same month; two of the AmiAmi packages should have shipped in June but Souseiseki was severely delayed. I decided to seperate her out from the main order to free it, hence why there's 4 Ami boxes rather than 3. The one in front of the huge AmiAmi box is the Cardcaptor wand's outer packaging, which could easily have been sent on its own, but AmiAmi decided to pack it in a freakin' huge box.

Here's a photo of me with the box so you can get an idea of how big it is...

And here I am IN the box, in case that wasn't enough! Please excuse my terifyingly veiny hands ouo;
I forgot to get a nice big shot of all my loot together; we're moving and I had to get my photos in quick!

First up we have the second set of Sailor Moon Twinkle Dolly charms!

They're super cute! They've also announced a third set with human Luna! Ahh, my wallet is slowly dying.

Black Butler Pic-Lil straps!

They're a lot smaller than I expected, and I'm kind of disappointed I didn't get the bonus William T Spears strap for ordering from Hobby Stock, but I'm happy to have some Snake merch at last:3

Here we have Souseiseki and HinaIchigo from Rozen Maiden by Griffon Enterprise. I'd heard a lot of bad things about Griffon's figures, but these two are really nice! They could be better; the white parts aren't shaded, Saucy's hat WILL NOT STAY ON and her scissors are cheap and lazy, and Hina's expression is a bit off for her character, but their bases are BEAUTIFUL and their sculpt/painting is just as good as GSC's figures.
There are nicer figures of Saucy and Swissy (Suiseiseki), but so few nice ones of the other girls that it's definitely worth going for this set. I've already ordered Shinku and Swissy and I can't WAIT to see Kanaria's prototype!
I haven't seen a review of them yet, so here's some photos of their boxes! If you'd like a full review, send me a PM!

Here's a potato photo of my baby cat with Saucy! I love her so much o3o

Now on to my CARDCAPTOR SAKURA LOOT!!! *manic giggling*
Let's start with the bits and bobs:
http://i.imgur.com/crNZ0lFl.jpg
THE BOOK OF CLOW!! Man I've wanted one of these for SO LONG! I was actually about to buy an old copy for like £100 when I checked the database and found out they were doing a re-release!
http://i.imgur.com/F1ILfb2l.jpg
I would prefer the book/box to be more...realistic, with fancy engravings and gilding, but this is certainly good enough!
http://i.imgur.com/kzdmW2Al.jpg
The inside is accurate too o3o
http://i.imgur.com/mUXogaAl.jpg
These cards are manga accurate as opposed to anime accurate, where the cards are simpler with less shading. The cards are nice and solid, but not shiny like the old Bandai version. They come in a little box, I assume to make taking them out of the book easier so you don't scuff the sides.
The illustrations are SO beautiful *u* I was actually meant to get these way back in January, but the parcel was sent to the wrong address and I had to wait for it to be returned to HobbyLink before being sent back to me. It took so long ;n;

http://i.imgur.com/r0VT4wkl.jpg
The 60th anniversary CCS manga re-release! The pages are such nice quality o3o

http://i.imgur.com/8yykVsSl.jpg
Here's some extras; the cards on the right come with the manga volumes, there's one per volume and they make a picture together. The four at the top are all stickers. I'm not sure how you're supposed to use the rectangular ones, I think they're supposed to be put on ID cards or something? The little leaflet on the left came with the manga, and has a QR code for getting digital copies! Doesn't seem to work with my phone though :/

http://i.imgur.com/77MqYSLl.jpg
I've wanted this folder for aaages. I finally got it! Yay:3 A bunch of this stuff was ordered by my friend, APPLENAPOLEON from Yahoo Auctions. The re-packing, postage and usage fees we had to pay a proxy were extortionate though, so I wouldn't recommend using them unless absolutely necessary =_=

http://i.imgur.com/jClWAfMl.jpg
Some CCS notebooks! Man I love all this new CCS stuff they've been releasing.

http://i.imgur.com/KpQg8vil.jpg
And here's some stickers! Most of these bits and bobs are Ichiban Kuji prizes.

http://i.imgur.com/g4BF98nl.jpg
LOOK AT THESE FLANNELS THEY ARE SO PRETTY AND COLOURFUL AND SOFT AND AHHHHHH?!?!
I maaay have bought another whole set of them so I can have ones to use and ones to display ouo;

http://i.imgur.com/49OzC65l.jpg
And in the box we haaave...
http://i.imgur.com/zxqcLtSl.jpg
TEACUPS! They're surprisingly hefty, and as with everything CCS they're super cute! I have some fancy Dragon Age teas on order, and they'll be the first thing I drink with them:3
http://i.imgur.com/l6fJzdLl.jpg
Here they are with the matching teapot I got last time:3

http://i.imgur.com/eWp7VmHl.jpg
LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!
Kotobukiya are the best! Look at this beatiful Li, the only scale fiugre of him EVER and he's SO GOOD! His painting is flawless, his sculpt is dynamic and accurate to the image it's based on!
http://i.imgur.com/wvf28Qdl.jpg
His box is so much sturdier than Koto's Sakura. Hers is flimsy, while Li's is thick, STRONG cardboard.
http://i.imgur.com/z5J8LDql.jpg
Here he is with the matching Sakura. They're both gorgeous, buuut...

http://i.imgur.com/fsxshFal.jpg
In my opinion this Sakura is even MORE gorgeous! Her painting is so vibrant, lots of shading on her skirt, and it's one of my favourite outfits! Her hair's not as delicate as Kotobo's Sakura, but the shape is much nicer.
http://i.imgur.com/T4rocIQl.jpg
Here's her box, it's pretty too!
http://i.imgur.com/QmKRIsol.jpg
Even the inner flaps have detailing!!!
http://i.imgur.com/6qEFgnxl.jpg
Here she is next to Kotobo's, as you can see they're pretty similar in terms of proportions.

http://i.imgur.com/upzCj2fl.jpg
And here's a teeny little Sakura! I'm going to make this outfit, when we've had time to settle into our new home <3
http://i.imgur.com/QTp5PtRl.jpg
The packaging on these is so nice! Man do the Japanese know how to pack things. I bought the Star Wand last time, but wanted one to display as well as one to go on my phone. Sadly, they're actually quite frail! I dropped my phone, and although the phone itself was fine, the shaft of the charm broke off inside the audio jack =_= Hopefully I can fix it with some super glue :/

http://i.imgur.com/g5lXYcol.jpg
And here we have yet another Clow-themed box...
http://i.imgur.com/MqcDhuzl.jpg
This necklace looks SO nice on! I hope it's good enough quality to stand up to a lot of wear, especially on my acidic lizard skin =_=

AND FINALLY!!
http://i.imgur.com/oFJ1JAVl.jpg
THE SEALING WAAAAND!!1!
http://i.imgur.com/PfFCUpxl.jpg
Now I can cosplay Sakura in all her glory! Man I've wanted this since I was a child, I'm so happy to have it ;u;

If you've made it to the end then congratulations, and thanks for stopping by!

I'll leave you with the first photo of our new place:
http://i.imgur.com/QmptPzNl.jpg
I took as many figures as I could fit in the car, which wasn't a lot what with all the 'essentials' we had to bring. Who needs clothes? Pfft!

Well, that's your lot folks, until next time, saraba!

EDIT 2: Made everything a bit bigger for your enjoyment!

Oh glad to read something about the griffon Rozen dolls! They are really prettyful and your pictures show us how nice they're made! (Another to my wishlist Sou and Suiseiseki are my love!!)
Thanks for sharing it is indeed a beautiful haul!! ^_^

You're welcome :D You can get the Clow book on Mandarake, just make sure you don't get the lip balm set, the boxes look pretty similar!
MarshallDTeach5 anos atrás#3198908Jesus, how much did this all set you back?
I...am not sure I want to say o_o;; I want to say 'I don't spend money on anything else!' and 'I can afford it!' but I really did overspend Q_Q I've made a spreadsheet of my expenses to stop me doing it again.
zellerific5 anos atrás#3198862BEAUTIFUL CCS HAUL!
I really want the 1/1 wand but I have no where to put it ;w;
I still haven't decided if I am going to get the PLUM figure yet...I have both the Koto ones and they are so gorgeous - only the hair of the PLUM one is holding me back!

Her hair could be more delicate but it's really easy to ignore when she's in front of you; the crown and outfit really pull your eyes in! As for the wand, you could get some hooks and hang it on the wall! I intend to:3

I purchased the Clow wand on the charapin but I agree they are delicate and mine it's too big for my iphone lol still the quality is fantastic so maybe I'll display it and sadly, I couldn't find the star wand ;_;
