Sorry, no reviews yet, just more rambling on my arrivals ^^;
I think 6 is a new record for most arrivals in a single box… was quite a package to haul around all day ^^; I think Optic brought up the question of most figures in a month earlier…
Usually I don’t make such large purchases, but this case was a bit unique. You may have noticed I kinda stealthily added the figure store review page, where I’ve been chronicling my experiences, including some unfortunate Kid Nemo cancellations. Incidentally 2 of my remaining incoming items are from Kid Nemo (both Alter preorders no less) so thank goodness there’s still some good left in them. Anyhow, Airi, Ymir, Sairenji, and Omega Supreme (yeah, the transformer, was supposed to be a gift for my brother) were all canceled on me so I had to look elsewhere to fill my lost orders.
Thank goodness for hlj. They had the Queen’s Blade girls and Omega Supreme in stock, and are slated to have sairenji this month. In classic impulse style I decided to pick up some other goodies while I was placing my order… figmas are so addictive with their relatively low price… having finished Code Geass I figured lulu would be a good extra for my reviews ^_^; (also happens to be my first male figure (well… i guess technically my nendoroid puchi shiraishi was the first))… seeing danny romping around tokyo with kagamin convinced me to pick her up too. Seems I was just in time – she’s out of stock at hlj at the moment.
The Another Blood reviews made her a must get a while ago… decided to grab her before it was too late. Lastly, max factory’s emu emu for kemeko combination goodness! ^_^ I think I’ll be doing at least 2 combo reviews to try and get thru my queue a little faster ^^;
My weekly Japanese class has translated to weekly trips to Kinokuniya… this week’s damage is pictured above. Ummmm yeah, so you may have noted I still haven’t quite gotten my fill of Geass ^^;;; Currently following Nightmare of Nunnally and (as far as I can tell) the manga version of the anime’s plot. Was going to try out the Suzaku series (seems to be another spin-off where the knightmare frames don’t exist) but had to order it because volume 1 wasn’t in stock. Finally remembered how many volumes of Rosario & Vampire I owned so finished off the first “season” and started collecting the second season volumes.
Blegh, I should get working on those reviews, I’m not even sure what I’m writing anymore ^^; Guess I’ll end with some random pics…
Just remembered that I forget to get Nida and Mei Feng out of my closet (ack, why haven’t I gotten them unboxed yet?! /ore no baka!), but otherwise that’s every scale figure box I have at the moment ^^; Was fun to construct, reminded me of making forts out of couch cushions ^^;
And now back to your regularly scheduled internet…
