Review: Banpresto K-On! PV Costume ~Ver. 2~ Kotobuki Tsumugi

Hello everyone~! It’s been a while since I posted. I thought that if I left my “Last Loot Post” post on for too long people might think I’ve really stopped blogging! ><; But of course, like I have mentioned in that post (for those who have bothered to read it) it’s only a pseudo-hiatus of buying figures like there’s no tomorrow for me. I’m still a collector, but not as active as others out there. Now~ I’ve started taking a look at some of the figures that I’ve left in their boxes for far too long and this lovely is one of them! Today’s short and sweet review features a prize figure of Mugi-chan from Banpresto (OMG GASP, it’s not a nendo review!)

Review: Nendoroid Petit Aisaka Taiga

As the year of the Tai– Tiger nears to a close this coming February, let me present to you a review of two incarnations of Toradora!’s Aisaka Taiga in adorable Nendoroid Puchi form! That’s right! I’ll be reviewing both versions of the Aisaka Taiga Nendoroid Puchis namely the Seifuku version bundled with the Cross of Venus game and the School swimsuit version bundled with Toradora! Portable.

Review: Nendoroid Nao (Staccato ver.)

Oh let’s see here… What’s this? Another post? — And a review nonetheless! I feel like this has been waaaaaay overdue so I decided to make another review post since I doubt anyone is interested in my comments for upcoming figures. ~_~; I have a huge backlog of unopened figures since I haven’t done any reviews in a long while, so I decided to start again! I’m trying out a different review style in this post, so please do comment on it. The subject of  this review is the cute Nendoroid Nao Staccato ver. from the online game Mabinogi.

Full Metal Alchemist Chessboard Mail-order Exclusive

FMA CHESSBOARD! >w<

FMA CHESSBOARD! >w<

This month, Arakawa-sensei has closed the book on Full Metal Alchemist for good with the final chapter of Full Metal Alchemist released in the latest issue (July) of GanGan. I just read the scanlations of the final chapter a while ago from trusty old OneManga and couldn’t be more satisfied with the ending. Although, there is still that feeling of wanting more from the series. All I can say is: some events were unexpected, but, this final chapter will definitely tie a lot of loose ends — and leaving some ends open for the reader’s imagination. I have sat at the edge of my seat, mostly cried, then laughed near the end. It was really a good conclusion, and I’m pretty sure a lot of fellow fans would feel the same. I can’t wait to see what Arakawa-sensei will come up with next.

Moving on to the main point of this post, well, it’s yet another news post, but seeing as there is not much awareness for FMA merchandise, and that I’m still mulling over the end of one of my favorite series for all time… here it is!

~Distant Avalon~ Trial shoot: I still have much to learn. + eBay Halp?

First Shot

Celize's very first photo. ^^

As per usual, you can click on the images to see them in higher resolution.

Hi guys! This is probably refreshing to most of you. No rants, no wished figures or figure pre-orders… these are actual photos that I took myself! After SUCH a long time! I don’t really think that my figure photography has been missed by many (since they’re not really that good compared to others ^^;) but I did miss taking photos of figures. After all, it’s the most practice I can get even if I don’t get out of the house!

Another Attack of the Exclusives!

Yes. As the title says, it’s another attack of the exclusives. I have to admit, I haven’t really been up to date with all the new figure releases lately. Life has been a bit busier for me more or less, which is why I am unable to look through the new announcements of upcoming figures like I used to. A friend on Twitter gave me a heads up on a exclusive figure of a character I love though, which is why this post has been made.

First up, the one of the releases that have piqued my interest are the upcoming Touhou plushies by Gift.

Black★Rock Shooter Love! ♥

Apologies folks for the lack of posts for the past… *checks date of last post* month. Goodness. That has really been a while since I last posted. Well this isn’t much of a new post but hopefully, I’ll get off my lazy ass and start a few articles that I’ve been meaning to start for a while.
