Recent Hauls x Collection

3 11 2008

Sept – Oct

So once again, it’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. Although I’ve had the materials [pictures] ready, I was not motivated enough to actually write a post.

I find just posting my latest hauls to be real easier than doing reviews, so I’ve decided to just post my recent hauls. As a testament to my laziness, the first haul was due to be posted way back in early October!

The above image is of the goodies I bought during the London MCM Expo, which was a week ago! ^^;

boo!

Full low-down of the 3 hauls after the break ^^

My Room : : Skylounge central

22 07 2008

ROOM by Samanosuke

I wanted to take a break from figure posting, so decided to jump on the bandwagon and do a “my room” post. If it looks neat, then it’s because I’ve just tidied the room. If it looks cluttered, that’s because i’m naturally an untidy person! ^^

The main shot pretty much shows everything of interest in my room, but i’m gonna show some areas in more detail with the following images.

[Review] Mirei-San x Figure

22 07 2008

MIREI-SAN from Kotobukiya

Mirei-san, the ultimate Shunya design(?!) Yes, quite possible. Mirei-san is a 1/7 Scale PVC figure, brought to you by the Kotobukiyan folks. My non-collector friends can’t help taking sideward glances at her when they’re around – all it takes is one look.

Anyway, I’ve dragged the release of this post because I actually felt it wasn’t worth posting. Don’t get the wrong idea, i’m not suggesting Mirei-san isn’t worth the webspace! It’s because, due to her popularity, there are plenty of better photoshoot/galleries of Mirei-san on the web (For example, Danny’s).

But alas, I’ve decided to finish the job – hopefully there’s something new in here for some people!

Mirei-san gallery follows…

[Review] Sera-Chan x Figure

15 07 2008

SERA-CHAN from Kotobukiya

Sera-chan is a 1/7th scale PVC figure sculpted by Mitumasa Yoshizawa (Reflect), and produced by Kotobukiya. Sera-chan is another figure based off a design by Shunya Yamashita, featured in his artbook, Sweet Dreams.

Apart from the clothing and hair colour, this figure doesn’t really resemble the original drawing. However, that’s no bad thing because this is an equally beautiful character. The original Sera-chan is portrayed as a cute schoolgirl and probably wouldn’t strike such a provocative pose. This is a sexed up Sera-chan with a “come and get me look”. Me likes =)

More photos of Sera-chan can be viewed by clicking the link.

[Review] Arisa x Figure

15 07 2008

ARISA from Yamato (Creator’s Labo)

Arisa 1/7 Scale PVC figure by Yamato’s Creators’ Labo. This is the original version, Yamato have since released Arisa in another colour variant.

Yamato bring’s another one of Shunya’s designs to PVC form, whilst doubling her breast-size in process. The original concept depicts a cute girl in sultry school top and knickers, choosing a guitar as the weapon of choice, as opposed to the usual sword.

The pose is spot on, but I can’t get over the gi-normous eyes the sculpter (“Sunny Day”), er, sculpted.

I’ve kept her skirt on, as this is how I have her on display – sorry! I’ve also noticed that her skirt is on the wrong way, so you get a ‘light-wind-breeze-revealing-bum-cheek’ sort of pose ^^

Anyway, more pics of Arisa follows.

[Review] Shii Arisugawa x Figure

15 07 2008

SHII ARISUGAWA from Kotobukiya

Shii Arisugawa, released by Kotobukiya, is a damn fine recreation of Shunya Yamashita’s designs. She (or Shii – hahaha..ha…. sorry) is a 1/7 scale PVC figure, and comes packaged with her sword, a pink mobile phone and glasses.

Shii is one of my favourite Shunya figure – scrap that – one of my fav out of my whole figure collection. I still remember seeing her in a hobby shop, months before I started collecting myself, and I couldn’t get her out of my mind. Returning to the store months later, I was disappointed to find out it was sold out (can’t blame them!) – this lead me onto a searching hunt, which also introduced me to several other figures, thus triggering the domino affect.

I ended up buying Shii from a seller on eBay, second hand. It was in very good condition, but I still wished I’d bought her new now (“no other guy can touch her! NO ONE!!!”). Lame jokes aside, enjoy the pictures of Shii!

space – doh! you caught me!

Shii Arisugawa gallery follows.
