Busou Shinki – Up close and Personal

September 28, 2008

I have grown more and more attached to my Busou Shinki’s ever since I got them… more so even than my Figma Haruhi I think… which is strange… it might be because I’m not as scared to play with the Shinki’s, because they cost alot less than the Figma’s, and would be much cheaper to replace if broken. Figma’s just seem more delicate…. They’re definately better quality, but it might have to do with the fact I was so enticed by the Angelic Layer story when I first read it, like 5 years go…(wow…long ago….weird…) And stuff like Sky Girls and the slightly more recent Strike Witches might have been an influence too. I’m not really big on the mecha stuff… but I do love the character designs!!

(I don’t know why I didnt take any close ups of Devil Strarfs box… and I can’t now, it’s at home lol)

Uni Room Update + Shinki’s!!

September 24, 2008

I found my transferry-device!! And got the pictures off! :woot: This is my apartment, shortly after I’d moved in.

Posters and stuff on the bed, I was ‘decorating’ lol. The room has a slopey window, which is cool. I’m on the 5th floor. *Almost* top, because theres only one room above us…. The room looks messy, still moving stuff about, the box on the right of the desk-space is full of arty stuff, now stored in one of the draws.

The room is in fact bigger than my room at home, and its en-suite!! lol. Livin’ it up here I am. And Who’s that at the end of the corridoor?

Why its Hikari and Yoko of course!!! Two of the better Newtype USA centerfolds I aqquired. Was a bitch removing them with minimal damage. I got a Kanon centerfold above my bed. Not Makoto though…:sulks:

Theres a massive pinboard in the room, but I keep forgetting to pick up some pins in WHSmiths….gah…. the amount of freebies and leaflets you get I can fill a sizable chunk of it already lol.

Up untill last night, the girls were sitting on the table by my bed. But I decided to finally break out the box I had all the accessories in and have a little play. Strarf and Arnval are on the stands now, Arnval’s legs are so Strike Witches-esque. I love them!! I’ve grown more attached to MaoChao and Howling since I got them, I really only bought them because I didnt want to miss my only chance to get them at a decent price…

And good news!! For me at least lol. I’m gonna be able to play the Busou Shinki Battle Rondo MMO!!! I couldn’t download it here, kept timing out because it would take over 24 hours to download… it got to down to 16 hours one time… *sob* But Ashper is sending me the game! Since he could download it in 3 hours… :grump: 10mb speed is what I have now, and it’s been than the 6mb I had at home… but it still didn’t wanna download faster than like 12kb/s…. So unfair… but I’m getting it anyways!! And can’t wait to try it out!! I’ve got a decent guide, so I should be able to figure it out lol.

Sorry for the gap! ((Keep your eyes out for ep 13!!))

September 24, 2008

As some of you may already know, I’m at uni now, and I’ve been out and about a bit. Not getting drunk….cause thats a big waste-o-money and resourses that I could waste on other things, like figures!! lol.

Just thought I’d post a little something from my Busou Shinki’s to keep you coming back for more. I’ve taken more pics and some of my uni room, before and after shots etc, but I can’t find the little thing I put the memory card in to transfer them… so I’ll find that later…

My 3 newest Shinki posing on my laptop!!!

And btw, if you hadn’t realised, and I’m sure many of you have, there is an episode 13 of Strike Witches by the look of it. Since several sites have it listed with 13 episodes I think it’s fairly safe to say theres a 13th episode. So keeps your eyes out this week!! You wouldn’t wanna miss it now would you?? 😀

Busou Shinki – A kind of mecha Angelic Layer?

September 21, 2008

One of the first things I thought when I saw Busou Shinki’s quite a while back, was ‘those joints don’t look too great’. But After researching further into it when I was able to buy one, I found they’re meant to be like that. They’re from a series about battle dolls, like Angelic Layer! And better yet, theres an online game which you can play and unlock Busou’s with the codes you get with the figures! The games called Battle Rondo I believe, and gets new characters updated when new Busou are released. Which is a mucho cool feature if I must say so myself!

Like the sucker I am I fell for this franchise and was under its spell, and wanting more!!! I haven’t downloaded the game yet… will when at uni probably… The pic above came from wiki, tis all the Busou’s to date I think… there might be a couple missing… it looks like they’ve got progressively cuter as time went by, which I’m all for personally! Below you’ll find the opening for the first game released.

Love the op music actually, the rest ain’t too bad either, but you can go hunting for that if you’re so inclined too.

This is a sneak peak of my three newest Busou Shinki’s, MaoChao to the left, Arnval in the middle and Howling on the right. I’ll post more pics of them later on! Enjoy for now and go investigate for yourselves!!

Suprise Loot Aqquired!!

I went to one of my local game/figure places today, expecting just Busou Shinki’s, like my brother told me. And I was totally gobsmacked when I found a gold mine of figures!!! And a good few rare ones too!! I never even knew they made a Shion/Mion figure before today… and pretty much all these figures, Bome’s, Kotobukiya’s etc, were all £10($20) or under!!!! I was sad they didnt have all the Busou Shinki’s my bro said were there, I wanted the angel too, aswell as the devil type. But the other figures more than made up for it!! I only spent £36($72) aswell…. wish I could have spent more… but I was controlling myself, so I only bought Serio from To Heart, and left Akari….:sniff: But I got Himekuri girl finally!! (The white one, would have gotten either.) Only £8($16) for her!! The Busou Shinki Devil Strarf was just £8, and the Mion/Shion(with two backs of hair.) was only £10 too!!! GAH I felt so lucky….

Prices(for those who dont want to read the whole rant lol)
Kotobukiya Serio (To Heart) – £10($20)
Konami MMS Busou Shinki Strarf Devil – £8($16)
Kaiyodo Himekuri Girl – £8
MegaHouse Sonozaki Shion/Mion (Higurashi no naka koro ni) – £10

There was also several Bome figures, the Kiddy Grade Twin pack, Full Metal Panic(twin set?) And there were 4 different kinds of Gundam figures, 3 girls and one guy, Meer Cambell was one of them. (Not familiar with the Gundam universe…. Might have been 00…) So much awesome stuff… there were three To Heart figures actually… Serio’s sister(?) was there too. There were some mecha revoltech and gunpla too. But no Gelgoog, so no deal…

(I’m sorry, but I had to rant, it was like the expo!! So many goodies!!!)
(The local figure and game place in question, which usually does not sell this kinda stuff, just final fantasy, star wars, dr who, wrestling, other cult stuff, is called Toyz and Gamez. They have an amazon.co.uk marketplace shop tool.)

(I know… I posted this as a news item… but I wrote so much in my rant I’m reusing it. Waste not – want not lol.) I will take pics of new goodies once the camera is charged. (I have to go fetch the charger first…:sigh: So lazy…)
