In the last week + Extra Loot

November 4, 2009

(Goddamn…. Why the hell didnt this post on the 2nd like it was meant to…?) I was meaning to post my Supernatural loot sooner than now, but I’ll do it with my other stuff, Hoi-hoi-san, mid-build Zaku, annnnnnd the yummy Tenka Taihei.

zaku

I got the body and head done, and my fingers were feeling so raw after threading the rings onto the tubes, I thought I'd call it a day and continue tomorrow.

The level of detail on this is crazy high! Sooo much better than my MG Gelgoog from 1997. This was released 2007, going by the box, a 10 year gap… seems so long ago…. Inside his chest sits Char, AND his chair-compartment-thing(Captain Scarlet style!) moves backwards and forwards on a little switch on his back, very discreet, theres two panels on the front that move up and down too. So much detail!!!!!!!

zaku2

Head on.

I love that the bits on the side of the head, body and legs are on bendy tubes, tis beyond epic. And his eye moves! I think I’ve decided this Zaku’s a he. Some go one way, some go the other lol.

hoihoi

Hoihoi!!!!!!!!!

HOI HOI! She was a bitch to make lol. The hair… still a bit paranoid to pose her much due to the hair might pop out lol. She’s lovely. So cute. The feet joints could be a little more secure also. But otherall, super sweet kit. And would I get another? I think so!!!!!!!!!

packet

I was a little apprehensive about trying this, last time I tried red bean curd I didn't like it much.

tenka taihei

I won't lie, I bought it *mainly* because it looked like Taiyaki lol.

Ofc, when its half eaten, you can’t see it as much, but you can see the indentations lol. It was SUPER yummy. Way nicer than the last red bean paste/curd I had. The thin pancake layer coating the red bean paste, with a sweet chestnut paste filling in the middle. Not so big on the chestnut, but the red bean was YUMMY. I will definately be buying more next time I’m in London.

close up

There, you can see the layers, I forgot to take a pic before I started nibbling haha.

sup loot

I know you guys won’t care about hot guys, but this(Supernatural) is our fanservice lol. All the comedy and chickflick moments(that Dean says he doesnt want, but always seems to start em haha.) The scary looking pendant in the middle is Deans pendant, comes into play in the 5th season. Cas has use for it. Still haven’t read slash fics, but I’m sure I’ll get to a point where the pull of Destial will be too strong LOL. Anyways, yeah, those are the badges n stuff I got from expo, lots of photos n stuff, but I already have on my computer lol.

Thats it for now, Supernatural time!!!!!!!!!!!

London Expo – One week

May 16, 2009

Thats right! It’s one week till the London Expo!! I’m going sunday only. Since saturday is always a bitch, way too busy. I’m not going for early opening, mainly because trains arn’t running early enough to get there before 10. But at least the trains are running now. Below is the Expo map, I just hope the hentai stall is still there, cos I wanna see if they have To Heart 2 Another Days again… that is my aim for this expo. At the midlands one, it was a wallscroll, this time, its an eroge. And any cheap To Heart goodies are always a plus. lol.

Memorabilia – Midlands Expo Sunday Nov 23rd

November 24, 2008

Now….. bad news… I forgot my camera…. didnt realise before I was on the train… just as it was about to leave…. you don’t now how gutted I was… I could have got a pic of the Fonz… of Gareth David Lloyd…. :sob: I wish I brought it….. damn…. nevermind though. My camera is pretty awful anyways. I have the memories, they are good enough for me. Not for you lot obviously. But theres videos and pics on the official site I’m sure. Content-wise, Memorabilia is much-much more varied than Expo. More actual scifi and comics rather than raging Naruto fans. And its on a larger scale. Bigger venue. And food INSIDE the venue too! Hot food and hot drinks and snacks and everything! You need never leave! (Unless you need to find a cash machine :cough: which I did…. and had to wait in line AGES for the only available one in the NEC….(for some reason the rest of the cash machines were out of order… grrrrrr). After I had been to the cash machine I went to get some lunch. I needed sugar and stodgy foods. So I went to a Free House/Bar/Cafe thing that was inside the NEC complex. Had coke and a cheese and ham panini. Was good. £6.60 total I think… pretty good considering they could have hiked the price alot due to its locale. Also got some snackage for inside, when I returned into the convention. (I went to get money for a Mecha-Musume mini figure, cos I only had £5 and she was £7.) The NEC complex is a BIG place, 20 showrooms, big rooms. There were two other shows on while I was there. The Golf Show(LOL) and the Christmas Festive Gift Fair….. I was so tempted to go in and be showered by the jollity. But I restrained myself from spending more….

I did get photos of my loot though. A fine loot for the limited cash I brought…. it was soooo tempting not to have got out more than I did….. No Hatsune Miku Figma though… :sulks: I did however, pick up another figure I’ve been pining over for a while now… Silfa from ToHeart2 Another Days! I’m soooooo glad I got her! And for only £20!! And I got the To Heart Akari figure which I regretted not buying in Norwich for the same price! £10!

silfa

 I also got two more of the GoodSmile VIP trading figures. I had MaRyan from the London Expo. Today I got Komaki and Akari(Two Akari’s! lol. The Komaki Sisters! lol).

As I mentioned before, I got a mini Mecha Musume gal, (Pic if you read on)

Kotobukiya Michiru Yamada ~ToHeart2 Another Days~ 1/8th PVC Figure – An every-otaku review

November 23, 2008

Welcome once again to my humble photoshoot! Which I agree! Is too dark…. I tried pointing another light at them, but there arn’t many plugs in my room. And many wires are already tangled behind my workspace lol.

Today we look at the lovely specimen, Michiru Yamada, from ToHeart2 Another Days. The character is friends with Chie Yoshioka :woop woop!!:, who you will see a little later, and of course, the main protagonist of the first ToHeart2 game, Konomi Yuzuhara. Chie is still my favourite. Although megane on figures are lovely.

best-view

She’s rather moe if I do say so myself. She has nice scruffy looking hair too. And the same uniform as Chie Yoshioka. Slightly different yellow to Chie, but fairly close.

front1

The hands don’t rest exactly on the edge of the brick wall which she’s sat on, which is a shame, but not the worst possible thing. That pose reminds me of an episode of Friends lol. One of the ones after Ross finds out about Rachael and Joey and Joey tells Rachael to say ‘I’m so sorry!’ while doing pretty much what Michiru is doing with her jublees. And as far as jublees go, they are smaller than Chie’s, but bigger than Konomi’s lol.

backleft1

Michiru is not as ‘muchi’ as Chie by any means, looks more tomboyish in figure, hair etc. The jumper seems to be a slightly different plastic/finish/feel what have you. Chie’s is slightly smoother. They both have nice shading in the jumper aread though. And sleeves. I love the skirts. I do. I believe they’re clear pvc painted on the top layer. Because the under skirt looks very funky. And looks like it won’t leave paint marks when removing the skirt either. Many more pics to be seen, read on folks!

London Expo – 2 days to go!!!

October 23, 2008

2 days till Expo!!!!! RAWG!!! Getting totally stoked!!!!! I’m just trying to figure out which figures I hope to purchase….. I do hope they have the Hatsune Miku Figma there…. and I can see how big the GSC Miku is too. BUT one of the ones I want most is the Nono-chan from Yotsuba!!! I hope to god she’s available there… for under £30….. She’s soooo cute! And I would love a Tsurya-san…. I’m gonna try and optimize my spending…. maximum figures for minimum amount, so I’ll make my usual rounds to each stall, then go back for my choices, hope to god they’ll still be there… I did that with the Himekuri Girl and she had completely disapeared…. For £10 its not unexpected…. Lucky I got her for about the same price a little earlier on this year.

This Expo there are soooo many awesome actors going!!! 4 members of the cast of Primeval(british tv series on ITV), 4 members of the Heroes cast, including Greg Grunberg!! :wooooot: Cast members and creators from Merlin, and cast and creators of a new series called Demons, about vampires apparantly. AND, I totally forgot, that Ben Barnes dude from the new Narnia, he played Prince Caspian in Prince Caspian!! I haven’t seen it, but he’s cute! Brad Swaile(voice of Raito(Light) Yagami is gonna be there too.
