Long awaited loot (August to October)

How's everyone doing!

Since my last blog summer came to an end, we're almost in the cold winter time, and the year is close to being over. In between my last loot and this one I've quit from doing full-time and back to part-time due to my mind not being able to keep up with so much at work and started to get depressed, and since then started school again (I'm studying concept art to anyone who's curious).I intended originally to post this in October, but life and my arch-nemesis - my country's customs - kept getting in the way.

Anyway, enough of that. In this loot, I got the one of the figures I've been most excited all year, along with some other sweet stuff, so I hope you enjoy. ^^

Obvious heavy picture blog warning is obvious.

August

First off I got ITEM #514223. Not into the series, but I found her to be very appealing. Unfortunately, It's the first figure I got which I got disappointed by. The quality doesn't match the pictures, with her right hand not resting on the knee like in the photos, instead, floating awkwardly in the air, and her feet are kinda deformed, and while anime girl's boobs have natural law-defying physics, I don't think this is normal...

I also happened to pick up ITEM #159039 on impulse.

As you saw above, I got ITEM #455565 which came bundled with ITEM #455180. I eventually want to get his Shiro (ITEM #396857), but that will have to wait for now.

Sora actually came in a package from Hobby Search which I got during a sale, which also included ITEM #396845. I love Deadpool (who doesn't, am I right?) and I simply couldn't pass him up for that price.

Lastly, I picked up The art of Horizon Zero Dawn. I've still only played through the very beginning of the game, but I've been hype for this game for a while now, and the art is simply amazing.

September

First, I received a package from HLJ, containing ITEM #544233, ITEM #553488, a magazine and some gunpla markers.

I'm so happy I finally got a plushie of Mimikyu, he's so adorable -w-

I spent a decent time on this one since I painted a decent amount of surface and details. I'm really happy how it came out, especially how clean the painting in the legs (yellow and silver/black areas) turned out.

It was my first time buying one of these magazines, but I really like looking at the illustrations. I've put the photos in a spoiler since they're slightly NSFW.

October

And then, in mid-October, he arrived at last... ITEM #463456. The figure I was most excited ever since I first laid my eyes on him (a year ago now). When he was about to go up for pre-order and they announced this was a limited-exclusive release, I was really sad and a little mad. After all, they had been marketing him with that exclusive base like it was a standard release. That's what had me mad, what had me sad was the exclusivity part. That fact made worry allot if I'd even be able to get him, because I did the calculations of how much he'd cost me if I had to get him through a proxy, and the number I came up with was impossible for me at the time. But thank god, his exclusivity wasn't that exclusive and was able to get him from a store from my country, which was a bonus, since in that case I wouldn't have to pay customs ^_^

And he did not disappoint...

He's stunning!I love him so much, it's so truthful to the character and the show (and I ADORE FMA:B). My favorite parts of the figure are the silver brushing on Al's armor, prides semi-transparent arms and the auto-mail (which I sadly forgot to take a picture of).

These last few months I've been getting some of my favorite anime in DVD/Blu-ray so that I can watch them whenever I feel like it and to support my favorite series, and this month I picked up another 2 of my favorites: Soul Eater and A Silent Voice.

http://i683.photobucket.com/albums/vv192/OmegaWerrier/Loot%205/IMG_4294_zpshyhopocc.jpg

While browsing through Mandarake I came across ITEM #570562, which I've been wanting for a while, so I decided to get along with ITEM #402586 which was cheap and have been meaning to get too. I'm planning to customize them both with some leftover parts from past kits I've built along with these weapons -
ITEM #619739 - which are coming with ITEM #615923, the third and final member of the trio I'm building. I'm thinking on writing a blog on them, so yeah, be on the lookout for that if you like model kits (or me showing them off :P ).

Also had a small HLJ package with 2 more volumes of Bou Girl and ITEM #581018. I really like ENTRY #22849 's work, and this canvas was just so I had a little something made by him.

A little after-word to release my frustration, skip if you're not interested.
View spoilerHide spoiler
Soo, I actually meant to upload this in October like I said in the begging, but I also intended to have ITEM #464595 and ITEM #464806 be in this. HOWEVER... Kamui was delayed, so no can do about that, it's whatever, but Camilla, on the other hand, is currently stuck in customs hell. Ans I mean HELLL!!! So, she was sent by Hobby Search on the 23rd of September, put on the plane on the 25th (EMS Shipping) and arrived in my country the very next day (26th). Fast right? Correct, the problem is that it was since been stuck in customs ever since! I've written to the postal service asking what was going on to delay the delivery so much (my past EMS packages have been in customs for one-week maximum), and they just give automatic responses back. And of course, now that we're in the middle of November, they're going to be even more with Christmas and everything. Even by paying a stupid amount of money for them to redirect my packages, they still take whatever time they want to release them, it's ridiculous and idiotic in all honesty. Sorry, rant over...


That's it for this loot blog, I hope you somewhat enjoyed this. Hopefully, on my next blog, I have more exciting stuff to show off than this one. Please, do leave any comments, opinions, thoughts on the blog, the items or my writing style below in case I'm doing this right or not, I honestly don't know anymore ahah ^_^

Until next time, OmegaWerrier out.

DreadedSwordsman (4 dias atrás) #28569340Amazing Loot!

Thanks ^^

DearDemons (4 dias atrás) #28571017Nice loot! Glad you were able to drop to part time especially if you were feeling that way but hopefully things start to pick up and you start feeling a bit less depressed! :)

Thanks, I dropped to part-time in the beggining of September and I've definantly been feeling much better. School and talking regularly to my best friend have been helping too, and I've even been drawing regularly (something I love but never had the heart to do since I started my job).

hicks16 (4 dias atrás) #28571439Nice loot! If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy the A Silent Voice dvd from?

I got it on amazon. I see your from the US, I got mine in the UK amazon site though, hope that helps :)

tharglet (4 dias atrás) #28573900Reading the comments on the first figure, you should be able to heat her arm up and put it into the correct place.
Some figures have a habit of arriving bent, and this looks like one of them. Looks like the bottom half of her foot and leg have sagged a bit to me too.
If you're new to bending stuff, you can heat it up either with water (hot, not boiling) or a few seconds with a hairdryer. Once the plastic is pliable, bend it gently into position, then either hold it until it cools or forcibly cool it. It should then stay in position, until time makes it sag.
If you don't cool the figure enough for the plastic to "set" and it goes into the wrong position, then you can repeat the process and be a bit more patient :).


Thanks for the tips, I'll give it a go soon ^_^
