On Friday I got a big surprise in the post. My Rin Tohsaka Fraulein that I won from Akihabaka had arrived. WAAAAY earlier than anticipated XD. It was only posted 4 days previously. Canada to England in 4 days, not using any fancy expensive kinda postal service. Just normal post. How the hell did it get here so fast? o.O I think its Canada, last time I got something from Canada it got here really quickly too XD. Love Canada <3

On sunday, I suddenly aqquired a Gouf. A cute little figure. My second premade Mobile Suit. First being my HCM Zaku. This Gouf, I first thought it was a little smaller than 1/144. But my Zaku Warrior Concert version is pretty much the same height as the Gouf, so I wonder what scale it is lol.
As figures go, it is properly lovely, not sure I could ever get one looking like this. My Sniper Zaku is probably the closest I’ve come so far lol. Awesome finish, brilliant posability, which I will demonstrate later in the post lol.
I can’t help but love this figure, I mean look at it!! Look at that face! Do you agree that this looks much more Yui-like than the Alter Mio looks Mio-like. The Mio Nendo doesnt do much better imo. I was always torn between the two, Mio VS Yui, I like Yui better at first, but then Mio took the lead, but I think purely on Yui’s ditzy, bubbleheaded charms, and her resemblence in sound and appearence to Fuuko and Nagisa, Yui wins. Not that Mio isn’t lovely ofc, but the Yui figures seem to be better than the Mio so far. All pics come from HobbySearch, as you can tell by the watermark lol. More pics below also. But before that, I’d like to point you in the direction of the Official Otacute Blog. They have some super awesome photos of Velvet from Odin Sphere, giant pics, big enough for wallpapers! And not only that, the latest news of their site, whats available, etc etc. Just go! Now! I emplore you!
Drossel von Flugel is absolutely GORGEOUS! I think I may have a new favourite figma, even above the caliber of Tsuruya-san, which is mighty hard to do. Because she’s a robot, the joints don’t look unnatural and awkward, they look right at home!
I am very glad I didn’t get the first Yoko to be released. This one is much improved. The face is nicer. Her yoko-pai’s are not droopy anymore. And you get better accesories. More pics below the cut.
(Please note, this is not a digital camera I’m using. I’m using a plain old fashioned Nikon AF NIKKOR 28-100mm.(I think thats its name, if not, its Nikon F65 lol) No screen, no iso controll I know of…. that I’ve been taught of… if there is, someone tell me lol.)
Yesterday I’d got round to scanning my best SLR pics from the first shoot, from Castle Gardens. And the next set I did over yesterday and today I got on CD aswell as 6×4″ photos, so no scanning needed lol.
The first pics I’m gonna post are the scanned photos, my favourites at any rate. And this was my first time fiddling with an SLR camera. So I’m suprised more of them weren’t blurry or complete rubbish lol, only a few of the 72(2×36 exp) came out bad lol.
