I rarely preorder a figure these days but this was one I could not miss~.
My long awaited Snow Miku arrived today, brought by Enekoneko (thanks for proxy-ing for me ;A;!!). She was released back at WonFes Winter this year. Being a GSC Online Shop Exclusive, you had to pay a proxy to get her. At last, GSC's own shop accepts international orders now as well.
The second part of my August loot. Here comes No. 9 of the Touhou Nendoroid line. GSC doesn't have any new ones announced so for now my collection is complete! They almost take up the space on one shelf by themselves.. I can fit another three but any more and I have to get creative. But it seems like this is not going to happen anytime soon.
Gallery behind the cut!
This is my first prize figure ever. Apparently, they're put up as prizes on Ufo catchers in Japan and are thus not as high quality as the more expensive PVC statues. However, they are really cheap! Yuki's promotional pictures looked very promising, so I decided to add her to my August purchases. Enjoy the photo gallery!
Saigyouji Yuyuko! My pictures don't do her justice. For once, I won't complain about the lack of accessories of a Touhou Nendoroid, because Yuyuko comes with a lot of extras. But I know the next one (Cirno) will be somewhat of a letdown again. Can't help it, I want them all nevertheless ^^;
What arrived today is Good Smile Company's Senjougahara Hitagi. She was released this year in January and was on sale at AmiAmi over a month ago. So after 40 days in transit, she's finally here. I bet everyone who follows a bunch of figure blogs is tired of pictures of her already. But I don't get figures often, so here's a bunch of pictures of Hitagi.
My latest figure acquisition is Kotobukiya's 1/8 scale Makise Kurisu from Steins; Gate which arrived this morning. I do feel a bit guilty for not having followed the series this season but it's on my plan to watch list for later. I took a little more time for doing the photos and it wouldn't be quite as bad if I wasn't too lazy to iron the background o/ (I'll do that next time).
How can people wait to take a photo of their monthly loot? Whenever a packet arrives I want to rip it open right away.
Here's some half-assed pictures of unpacking Youmu (still trying to figure out how to handle the camera and all). I was in hurry that day which didn't help and I'm not very patient with blogging now (exam and paper deadline in a week! I've tried to push everything behind that date that could be delayed so workload is not gonna stop anytime soon). We actually have been trying out a lot of new things lately but we were mostly too lazy do document everything. Hopefully we can do that later sometime.
The latest addition to my figure collection is Inaba Yui from eroge Flyable Hearts, 1/8 scale made by Good Smile Company. Figure renditions of less popular works of Ito Noizi are few and far between so I was convinced in an instant when she was for sale. A figure of an image of my favorite artist? Yes please!
Her prototype pictures were impressive and although you can't compare my amateur pictures to those, the final product is not quite as good as the prototype (usually GSC does a pretty good job..). But I got her from the bargain bin so what can I say..
Let's start by taking a look at the package first.
