Shirley Appears!

The Alpha X Omega Shirley Fenette is a figure I’ve wanted ever since seeing the prototypes in August last year. Then when the painted versions were shown in September at Chara Hobby 2008, and I wanted her even more.(Seemed more folks wanted Kallen though… not enough love for Shirley…) And I only ever devote blog posts to figures I really-really want. Like I did here.

pretty

Today. I got her. While she was on sale in the last couple of weeks at HS. And looks like I did it just at the right time… cos she’s gone back up in price!!! I got her for 4000 yen, instead of 5500 or 5800 lol. SO very glad I did now… due to the fact she ain’t available in the UK…. so very annoying… I am gonna wait till the 4leaves Tamaki is available in the UK in July. Just to avoid any charge by the bitches at Parcel Force…

(Very alarmingly, I found that the drink isn’t stuck onto the tray… which means even a little wobble, could knock them off. I’ve learnt already…) Ahhhhhh so pretty. Had waited for so long… and I’m uber-glad she wasn’t one of the mega popular figures that sell out during pre-orders. Otherwise odds are I never would have got her.

That is NOT my little journal. Nope. Never seen it before in my life.....never....

Pretty box. Me likee the style. She was in fact my first order from Hobby Search. Mainly cos I was unaware of the fact they accepted debit cards. Since when I emailed asking if they did some time ago… they said they didn’t.

All the plastic that was wrapped round her. Not including the stuff behind her, there was bubble wrap too.

It was really strangely wrapped too lol, very safe and secure though, which I’m very glad of. I was terrified about getting the coat off her shoulders to unwrap it. Putting it back on was scary too.. You have to bend it…and the twintails to get it on and off…. I always knew I wanted to display her without the coat anyways, so I’m ok lol.

This is whatcha get. Shirley, the jacket, the apron, the tray and the drink. Plus the base which you'll see below.

Embossed with the Ashford School logo. Pretty. And my first completely clear base. lol

This is, I think…the first 1/8th figure I own thats a character designed by Clamp. Which is a big shame, since I love Clamp to bits… There arn’t enough figures based on Clamp designs. And if there are, they’re mini figures.

With Apron. Very cute.

Blue tea? Anyone?

Theres no denying the jacket on is cute. But its a mega-bitch to get on and off. Therefore, my afformentioned choice to leave it off, was a good plan lol.

Opened the curtain and tried to use a pic of the Clannad classroom as a background. Did not work well lol. Screen is FAR too shiney lol.

Lighting is definately better though lol. Daylight is gooooood. (But not for too long…)

drink

Dozo.

Thats where she's sitting for the moment, curtain ain't open anymore though. I just have to figure out, where on the shelf she'll go...

Lulu is touching what he can’t have. Naughty boy.

I thinks… Shirley has the second best legs of my collection. Chie still holds first place. Fauna, Lucy, Tamaki and Nono are all in competition for third. It’s probably a tie between Fauna and Tamaki… But seriously. Shirley’s leggies are mighty fine. Kudos to the sculpter.

I wouldn’t usually go for the figures just wearing a swimsuit or bunny outfit or something similar. But Shirley was just so pretty… even before I’d seen Code Geass, I knew I wanted it. Watching it just strengthened my resolve, cos I then knew about how lovely her character was.

Anyways. That be it for now. Going to get me some noodles now. Me hungee.

    What a great figure. I only had enough moolah for Kallen, but the day before I was going to place my order somebody bought the highly discounted figure I was saving upp for. 75 FOR A 140 DOLLAR FIGURE!!!! But I was being narrow minded and decided That I ‘d save up for Kallen to get with it since the shipping was hellah expensive for priority mail. But know I’m realy looking forward to Shirley. Are you getting Villeta too. They will go perfect with each other.

  3. ELTboy Says:

    Very nice. I think Alpha x Omega did a good job on her overall. Would probably get her too after I get Alpha’s Villetta Nu. ^^

    I would say that all the Geass girls are super fine. And I’m a straight girl😄 No really, I think Code Geass has the best designed girls of any series I’ve seen, or even of any pictures of series I’ve seen. C.C. is so amazing in all the pictures I see of her. Is the new PVC of Lelouch on your to get list? When I saw that he was up for order I REALLY conisdered getting in to figure collecting, and his pretty price tag just makes it just so much easier to stay away.

    I’m Mitoko by the way, and I read your blog more occasionally than most😄 I decided to actually comment, seeing as you’re in uni like I am and… yeah, i read your blog😀 And I like the coming alongs of your mascot, can’t wait to see the final product <33

    I wouldn’t usually go for a figure in a swimsuit either because they’re too simple for my tastes. She looks good though, since it’s not just a swimsuit it has more character. She’s got pretty long legs

    @Meimi-chan: Hmm, so Shirley made u hungee, did she? Mouth watering? LOL, interesting… Oh yeah, thanx for pointing out that Shirley’s bum was her “back view”. Otherwise, I might’ve gotten confused. Hahaha! ^o^

  7. Snark Says:

    Lulu’s into…larger women ain’t he?

    @Meimi-chan: Ahhh yes, “Clannad” is like a love ballad. Hehe, get it? Clannad = Ballad? Okay, that was bad, lol… As for the end of “Code Geass”, there are probably hundreds of theories by now. I mean, at the very least, it could’ve been a fake sword in a magic-act illusion. Or at the very most, he could’ve been medically and surgically saved, lol. Not to mention all the Geass-related supernatural possibilities! So have u read about the time-slot fiasco behind the second season production? Kinda sad that the aired plot wasn’t what was originally planned. Oh well. But it was still epic!
