48 Day Preorder Drought Ends

Posted by meronpan on June 15, 2009

Not that there wasn’t anything I wanted, but rather I had been shielding my wallet from damage ^^;  Was going rather nicely for the last month or so but leave it to Alter to bust it open again…

Back at Hobby Search I found myself adding figures to my cart ^^;  Ah nanoha.  No way I could pass her up.  Series is named after her!  With all the bits flying around her, I really have no idea where to put both her and fate orz.  *ahem*  Sorry blowfish, I’ll try to keep the nanoha bits to a minimum :P

State of the Preordered Union

Posted by meronpan on April 27, 2009

Been a pretty quiet month for me, figure-ordering-wise.  I track/limit my purchases based on the month I place the order, rather than release date, and because of that… I’m nearly out of April without placing an order!

…And it figures just as I’m writing this I get the GSC newsletter officially announcing the World is Mine Hatsune Miku release orz.  Ok, well I *almost* got through the month without placing an order.  Dark brown frame for me ^^

Posted by meronpan on January 29, 2009

Nanoha Takamachi.  What am I going to do about you?  Are you really worth 10,857¥?

I was being so good… so far January marks a record low for my preordering habits… leave it to GSC to announce a 1/4 scale beauty for preorder…

Anime, Figures & Manga

Posted by meronpan on October 26, 2008

Some ramblings on… anime, figures and manga ^_^

Lately it feels like the only front I’m making any progress in is anime. As posted previously I recently got through Code Geass (Which I again highly recommend if you haven’t gotten around to it. I’d say watch the first 3 episodes to get a good feel for things. I’ll let ya skip this one if you’re not hooked by then :P)

Almost finished with 恋姫†無双 (koihime musou)… love the characters and the ED but the plot hasn’t really grabbed me that much. …Though I guess I didn’t really expect much from an eroge turned anime (not that that’s a bad thing… but I didn’t get the awesome plot vibe from this one ^^;)

Figure Drought

Posted by meronpan on September 20, 2008

It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten a figure, I’m getting withdrawl. ;_;

Worst part is that a handful of preorders should’ve arrived by now, but thanks to the chaotic stocking of US based stores, who knows when they’ll come in ;_;  Recently started ordering more from Hobby Search and Hobby Link Japan… we’ll see how that goes.

Someone stop me…

Posted by meronpan on July 9, 2008

Can’t… stop… pre-ordering… orz

It’s always bad when an older figure I’ve been eying gets re-released.  Bad because I always go into, “Oh, maybe I should pick up so-and-so while I’m at it… and her… and her…”  Today it was Alter’s KOS-MOS.  My wallet escaped only after sustaining the following casualties… ^^;
