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 got Drossel-home from a site I’ve never used before, but will definately be using again, as they have a kick-ass service, and a stock which is increasing in size all the time. Its the one, the only, Otacute! (Not only do they rock, they also have an awesome name!!)
I ordered Drossel just 5 days ago, on the first of August, and here she is!! For once an order of mine sent by EMS didn’t get caught in customs for a few days!! She was only £16 though, which is why. Stupid £18 limit from outside the EU…
Japanese newspaper! It’s such a novelty for me! Sad I know, but when would I get to see Japanese newspaper otherwise? Of course, theres one thing I love even more in packages, other than the actual thing you bought I mean.
Maybe its cos I was one of their early orders(number 48!!), or maybe just cos they’re always this nice(+ they’re trying to shift some stock thats not selling that well)! But my Drossel came with 2 rubber character phone danglies. Was delighted! And now wanting to find out more bout the eroge’s they come from. Till I Reach Your Tomorrow and Magus Tale. Now Magus Tale I think I’ve heard of, but the other one is all new to me. Both very cute though! The girl on the lefts outfit is very much like the Clannad summer uniform, ne?
Those are some big ears lol. I wish they’d given her some sort of Mickey mouse ears too. That woulda been awesome. But maybe a bit too much…
I think I prefer this piece of head gear to the flying gear. Oh, one of my favourite things bout Fireball is the Eddy Gordo style moves she pulls. He’s probably my favourite Tekken character, I enjoy kicking my bro’s ass with all the spinning. It’s called Capoeria, ain’t it?
She is too lovely. And I just can’t get over how she can stand on her own. I love it. And they changed the hands, they arn’t as hard to get into the sockets as they are on other figma, but it has sacrificed some articulation, nothing major though. My one and only quibble is that on her right twintail, the little bit of plastic that goes into the head socket is a little bit longer the other left one, which stops it from moving in the same way as the other one. Nothing major though, and it doesn’t bother me much, since I don’t tend to fiddle with the hair much on figmas.
All my little posable figures, a sad Lulu at the back on the right, the only guy in a sea of girls. I wonder if Disney intentionally designed Drossel to resemble Miku…. Either way, huzzah for Disney doing something like this, and I hope it reaches western screens, even if it has to be dubbed to do so, least children would demand the toys too if it became popular, and it would mean more moneys for Goodsmile!!
Ok. Those are pretty much most of the (best)pics. I took bout 55, but wittled it down hehe. I hope all you who have been considering a Drossel-hime get one eventually. I’m just glad I got mine in the first run, would have regretted it if not, since I didn’t preorder when I could have… And I did want her oh-s0 very much. Such a pretty design. I gots a soft spot for characters with chunkier feet & lower legs, and shoes too, my Gaia avatar had/has lovely chunky black boots. Nuff about that anyways, I’m gonna kick back, watch the rest of ‘The Mist’, do my net rounds and then hit the hay, eventually lol.
