Got her… I can’t believe I’m saying this, but EMS sucks. :| ‘Cos you get taxed, and actually have to go to the post office, instead of them just leaving the box, and, uhh, yeah. :|

Seriously though, I’m regretting all my Amiami orders. SAL at Amiami is no good anyway, it’s registered so it’d be the same, except slower. Registered SAL isn’t even that cheap. I wish I could cancel stuff from Amiami, it’s really tempting to just forget about all my orders from there, and get Ruri from some place else, and pretend Touhou doesn’t even exist anymore…

…okay, on to the figure.

figure stuff <3
January 20, 2010

Well, today, it seems like a lot of figures were announced, and a lot were pretty interesting…

First is Kotobukiya’s Ruri… I really love Nadesico, but my favourite character is Yurika, who has only two figures… three if you count a colour variation of one of them. Ruri, however… according to Tsuki, there are eighteen figures of her. (btw, both of those numbers are completed models only, I won’t count trading figures and GKs because I’m not interested in that.) Still, this figure is really cute, and maybe, just maybe Koto could please, please, please release a figure of Yurika?

Then we have two new Figutto! Too bad they look awful. Sasara’s hair is way too blonde, and Kanu kind of has that face that you see on way too many Griffon figures. I have to say, I’m really worried that Alice, Konomi or Patchy could turn out really badly. :|

Sora is a character who I’m only familiar with through figures, but I like her character design a lot. This figure is nice, sweet pose, great colouring, lots of detail in her hair… but, I really expected her to be wearing a white swimsuit. If Koto makes a white version, or if I can find this on sale, I’d probably buy it.

Last, Ichigo by Alpha Max. Not a bad looking figure, although I definitely wouldn’t buy it. However, the reason I’m posting her… it’s a little late for Christmas, isn’t it? May release?

It’s too bad this figure wasn’t by GSC, with all the delays, it would come out for Christmas ’10 then. :)

P.S. Koto… ugh when is Mio coming out??

asa!

I am a terrible person. I said I should maybe sell a couple figures… (I am seriously running out of space. I actually have a good amount, but I really don’t want every square centimetre of my room covered in anime stuff)  but before I even think about picking who should go… I buy another.

You see, last night, we had to go pick up my Dad from work in Halifax… and we go on Robie St… and past Quantum Frontier, and I see the lights on in there, and I just have this urge to go. So today I did. And while I didn’t think I would come out with a figure, I did.

They had a few new figures since the last time I went there… Ignis by Yamato, a pantsu exposing Hakufu, Kotone and Serio from the original To Heart, as well as some others. I was considering the To Heart girls, but then I saw Asa at the bottom. I just had to turn around her box and take a look at the price. At $50, I couldn’t let her go… : D

Came back from my trip to Ontario yesterday… was okay. Too long, two weeks is way too long to be spent away from home. Well, that’s just to me, since I love Nova Scotia so much, but w/e… and eh, wasn’t all bad, ‘cos I finally bought Kotobukiya’s Nagi~

Koto Konomi GET~
January 31, 2009

What a wonderful way to end January! My second figure, Konomi Yuzuhara from ToHeart2, made by Kotobukiya. She’s an older figure, from 2005, but is still of great quality, definitely worth the $23 I paid for her, at a local store.
