… my latest haul! =)
All these boxes o’ stuff, ordered from different places, was delivered to me this week. Actually, it probably looks like a lot more than it really is, as the two boxes on the left contain only one item each.
So, whats inside???
Click the link to find out! ;)
This haul contains:
9 x PVC Figures
2 x Artbooks
2 x Statues
Well, I’ve finally completed the Shuraki set – I didn’t know Nida-chan’s head is so small in comparison to the other girls! ^^
And after several months of searching, I’ve also finally got myself Kureha! Unfortunately, her condition can’t exactly be described as ‘mint’, and the box she came in was barely holding together (ok, a little over-exaggeration, but you get the picture) – Gutted! -_-
I got Noel whilst she was Play-Asia’s “Deal of the Week”, unluckily before the 25% off promotion period. No idea who the Gundam girl is, but she was cheap. However, she looks better in the promo pictures and I wish I’d saved my pennies towards another figure instead =/
I’m usually not into the cuter looking figures, but I fell for Ruka from Ar Tonelico – she is a very lively figure!
Rosanna is another Shunya figure – not a fav but glad to add her to the collection.
I never considered buying artbooks before as I thought the money was better off being spent towards figures instead. However, I’ve now got a few and they’ve become almost as important as my figures!
I bought both the Okami and Korean Illustration artbooks on eBay, and they are incredible! Okami is especially good because it is CRAMMED with quality images and sketches, and translated faithfully from the Japanese version. Korean Illustration, as the name suggests, features artwork by famous Korean Artists. I haven’t played the games before but the artwork for Granado Espada and ZerA are amazing. I’ve got more artbooks ordered and I can’t wait to receive them!
Well, I am very happy to have aquired these two Final Fantasy VII polystone statues (featuring Cloud and Sephiroth) even though they were bought on a whim! If anyone in the UK and is interested in these statues, you can get them from http://www.play.com for only £39.99 ($80) each, Delivered! – Absolute Bargain! Unfortunately, the problem now is finding space to display them!
Well, that’s it for now – and I do mean it! Apart from a couple more artbooks, I’ve not got anything ordered or pre-ordered, so this will be it for a while *sniff sniff*
Quite depressing when you’ve got nothing to look forward to, but i’m sure this is only temporary =p
