132

December 19, 2008

132. The number of figures I have accumulated. (This isn’t counting all the pokemon gashapon and stuff too… would be higher lol) (It was originally 129, but I forgot about some figures I didn’t count…. the 1/10th Sakura, the 1/5th fig and my Princess Ai doll. I’m so glad it’s 132!! How perfect is that?? 132!! (I swear it wasn’t planned…. I won’t say I didn’t look around to check for figures I’d forgotten about though lol))

132 figures. Thats including PVC, posable(Figma, Revoltech, Shinki, Nendoroids and a doll or two) and mini figures.

38 PVC 1/10th to 1/5th scale
18 Posable, Figma’s to 1/6th FF figures to a Princess Ai doll.
76 Mini figures, from Puchi Nendo’s, trading figures, bigger gachapon, PSE mini figs to Figumates.

Ok, IT Crowd over, I got distracted too… lol I found the other pic, but this was taken before I packed up Chie, Corti and others I brought to Uni with me…

Righto, thats an updated photo. All figures that remain at home are crammed on top of that. Not all the mini figures… just some… But my Pikachu car is there lol. There are many of my girls there though. And some of my guys. Hardly any thought compared to the female figures lol.

My Figure Set up – before uni moving… :sob:

This is what the top of my wardrobe looked like before I had to pack some figures away for transport. (Some being 4, Corti, Chie, Lucy and Haruhi)

This was after I moved alot of my mini figs to make room for the new gals, Bianca and Serio, Shion is down next to my laptop, along with the Strarf the Devil Type Busou Shinki.(who I will get round to posting about soon… I promise… I got 3 more on saturday aswell lol…. so cute….)

Just a pic I took while fiddling with camera settings, still haven’t got it fully worked out… I know… it’s sad… and I should be ashamed lol. Isn’t Koko lovely though?!!? She’s one of the figures I saw on one of Danny-san’s event photoshoots, and I knew I wanted her, that pose, the face, the hair! I loved her…(just realised I do have another shy-looking figure other than Serio lol…. I’ll change what I wrote…) I might do a little review thing of Koko, when I get her returned to me at uni, (am only allowed to bring limited figures to begin with… 4…:sob: but I’m bringing my Nendo Miku, Figma Haruhi and all 4 Busou Shinki’s too lol, and my Lucky Star Puchi Nendo’s. You can fit alot in the dead space in figure boxes. :icchan grin:

Himekuri Girl – Bianca – Photo-Review

September 19, 2008

The second of the 3 pvc figures I bought last tuesday. One I was very glad to finally be able to own. I would have been happy with either version, white or black.

This is Bianca. The white variant of the two Himekuri girls. I missed my chance of getting her at expo, a rule I made after that occasion, you see a figure for £10 or less, you buy it. You just go for it and buy it!!! Bianca is 1/7th scale, dressed in a revealing, yet adourable outfit, sitting on the floor, lifting the front of her skirt. I’m not big on the skirt-lifting thing, but for the price and quality of this figure, I’m gladly willing to overlook it.

The level of detail on this figure is quite astonishing, considering the price, and it was lower than most figures even before the later discounts, at 3800 yen a pop. (£20 or $36, thats uber-cheap compared to most I’ve bought.) The white Bianca version was released April 06, after the original black version released December 05, and finally a christmas colour edition was released December 06. I never could decide which out of the white or black I liked better… they both have pros and cons lol. But I’m sure both have the fantastic sculpt and very accomplished paintwork. I have to say it is one of the highest quality paint jobs in my collection, the detail on the clothing is so awesome!! The only bit which lets it down is the hair decoration, the big colourful thing hanging round her hair, that could have been slightly better, if it were, then it probably would be as near perfect as a paintjob could come. The sculpt, also awesome, they even sculpted the eyes a little too!! I love that! Not quite sure why, but it works well. The eyes are so cute!! There are some mould-lines on her right leg, but nothing really noticable. She’s just so pretty!! And the hair!! Very nice job joining it so it can’t be noticed unless you really look closely. Her hairs so thick and lovely too!! Very big at the back of her head, back-combed maybe?

The folds of the skirt are really nicely done too. Such a lovely figure… Apart from the skirt lifting…. lol. And no, no pantsu shots!! I’m not quite sure why though, I should know that you will want them…. silly me… I did take one, but it was a bit fuzzy… so it ain’t included. Another good thing about this figure is she needs no base, although I’m slightly worried about the bottom getting dirty… I would have prefered a flat base like you get with Sana Horiuchi. And Bianca feels assuringly hefty, I know the skirt and hair will add weight, but heavy things are usually better quality. Like with alot of technology. Flimsy-ass mp3 players will just not do…

Serio will be my last figure review, posting tomorrow. And I may do a quick thing on my Busou Shinki, although I’m getting more figures tomorrow… and packing for uni…. and on sunday… I might not be able to post anything… or get online…. depends what connection I have in my room… because my stupid modern laptop is too modern to have an ethernet slot…. it only works wirelessly!!! Who’s stupid idea was that???!!! Anyways…. laptop rant over… getting a shiney new computer next week. 4gb’s of ram, 6mb cache amoung other things. Ciao for now!!
