Figure Shoot December

I've got a big post to do here as I haven't exactly updated my blog in the last 3 weeks. Why? Well, there are a number of reasons why, to be honest. Good news is I'm on Christmas vacation now with all of my exams and projects finished and Spring semester starting January 5th.


The simple reason for not updating my blog is that I've been too busy with school to even watch anime or take pictures of the figures I've received (after delay) therefore I've not had any content to show. The last few weeks have been rather stressful for me as well; not with school but with issues that have been on my heart. I did some ignorant things and remained in the dark about them until I had to be slapped in the face and shown what exactly I did. I feel I settled the bulk of the tensions last night and can finally move on. I'm now looking forward to seeing my VOCALOID family again on Dec 28th for a gift exchange. Of course, it'd be even better if I could see a few of them before then but people are quite busy and hanging around with a guy like me isn't exactly top priority ^^;. I did, however, have a good time with Tara a few nights ago playing Smash Bros Brawl. I think I played more in that sitting than I'd ever played in my entire life (which is sad). I'll most definitely be cosplaying Ike in the future with a group.

I've been a little a lot behind on gaming and anime recently. However I did manage to complete Gurren Lagann last night (which is an awesome show) and I've been keeping up with the Tora Dora and Hyakko subs. Next on my list will probably be Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni or something else that pops up. Game-wise, I haven't had the chance to try out Home for PS3 yet and I haven't even yet played Force Unleashed or Mirror's Edge. I'll find time to get those played before I get Prince of Persia for Christmas (yes I know what I'm getting). Currently I've been playing the Mother 3 fan-translation for GBA...on my PSP. It's a good light play for me before bed and I should have it finished this week.

On a completely unrelated note, I have a friend who started up a blog and wants publicity. Considering his blog is very much like the rantings of a certain squirrel over at Neurotically Yours I think some of you might find the writing creative and entertaining yet very much offensive. If interested, head on over to "I Can't Believe It's Not A Blog, Except It Is".


And now to show what you who have all come from external sites, have come to see. Figure releases have gone haywire since October where there was supposed to be many different releases which got pushed to both November and December. I've now received all but Goth Punk Mikuru (which is now in shipping) and then I'll be waiting for the Nagato's release in January, Shana figma in December, and the KAITO Nendoroid in February. The most unpleasant part of all of this is that the economy has gone to crap since I placed all of these orders and the cost after exchange and shipping to individually ship the Mikuru ended up being $140 CND. Considering it retails for 8,000 JPY and I paid $104 CND for Gothic Lolita Haruhi by the same company, I think $140 was about $20 more than I would have paid if I had the chance to buy it in person.

So today I had some light in my room and I decided to take out the camera and get some shots of my new figures. I haven't yet taken pictures of Miyuki figma (Lucky Star), I'll wait until another day before I do that. I'll show you all the Shana Nendoroid tomorrow because today I'm going all VOCALOID and I'll be showing you both the figma and Nendoids!

Much more after the jump:

It's awesome how they come with a blank face and some stickers. I made a custom Len face.

Len is not happy in his sister's clothes.

And a little preview of tomorrow's gallery:

I need to get all of these shots on my portfolio this weekend as well.

Awww cute pictures! <3

I still don't want to use the stickers, I'm afraid that I can't reuse it again, so I think I'll just keep that... xD

Is the face stickers reusable?

So that's why, I was wondering why you hadn't done a new post in a while. I can't wait to get my Shana Nendo and Goth Mikuru. I'll probably have to wait another month before she arrives, but that's fine I just spent a lot on figures.
