April 15, 2009
Only 26 here, but he has at least 28. (He was using Pearl and Platinum at the time I took this.)

My brother went out today, while I was still in bed… and he bought the Nintendo DSi, which was released earlier this month, on the 3rd(before america!! Mwhahahaha, I love it when we get stuff before other places, it so rarely happens…). He spent-wait for it-£150 on it! I didn’t think that could be the retail price… but it is… only £20 less than the RP of a 60GB 360!!! Only £10 less if you get it from Amazon!!! Just £10-20 more and he could have bought his own 360! Instead of putting up with that cruddy little Arcade 360 that can’t even play old Xbox games…. I can’t believe they paid £120 for that….instead of saving a bit more and getting the 60gb version…or even the Elite!!! I can’t believe, after all my advice about why he shouldn’t buy it… he still went and bought it… heck…. a PSP would be a better idea… since he’ll be bored of the camera function soon… and thats really the only thing that sets it apart from the PSP(I mean other than having 2 screens). They both play music after all… both have memory card slots now… can the DSi play videos yet? Still…. waste of money… He won’t even admit it.. least I’ll admit it…

Its like he has 28-or so DS games and only plays like 2 of them… I bet he wouldn’t even notice if I nabbed Mario Kart… over £800’s worth of games he doesn’t play… I have a strong urge to sell them… I wouldn’t though… I’d be pissed if someone sold my games and I went back to look for one and found it missing…

And to finish…. a nice pick of Serio from my collection of To Heart figures. There wasn’t enough of her in the first series of To Heart…

I have Serio and Multi. Very chuffed. I need Kotone, Aoi..and some others...Lemmy etc...

I hope to someday soon complete the set of To Heart figures. I have 4 so far. There can’t be *loads* more lol. I checked how many before but have since forgotten…gah…. Anyways, tis all for now. Might post all the pics I took of the To Heart girls sometime soon. The majority of the pics are of Tomoko since she was my first To Heart girl, and an underated figure.

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.

To Heart Complete DVD Thinpack

November 26, 2008

Yesterday I got my To Heart anime boxset in the mail. 13 episodes, 6 mini episodes(I’ve seen 2, very cute!) plus the usual extras, trailers, line art etc. I’m on episode 7.

Pretty box art.

front-covers

Prettyness. I didn’t think I’d like the art as much as I do. But it’s nice. charming or something. Bought for £20. Region 1. Released by Rightstuf and Nozomi. Better DVD’s than ADV or such like. Better dub. I can actually stand to listen to it lol. Has been a while since I have been able to listen to a dub for a prolonged length of time. Akari’s english voice actress sounds cute. The UK would never have such a good deal unless it’d been out for yonks. Then again… they’d almost never release this…

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

September 21, 2008

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:

Serio HMX-13 Figure – Photo-Review

September 20, 2008

This is the third pvc figure I bought on tuesday. A character from the original To Heart series, Serio, or Serio HMX-13 being her full name. She stands at almost 20cm(8 inches). She’s sporting the same uniform as one of my favourite girls, Chie Yoshioka, from To Heart 2, and TH2AD. The colours are a bit different, but there is a considerable gap in time when the two figures were made. 2005 vs 2007, there will be some obvious difference. The older figures I have seem more basic in the facial department, but the clothing is still well sculpted, hair is usually a tad chunky though.

She’s also carrying a bag like Chie. Different kind of bag, and in a different pose, which is good, too much similarity is boring. The hair seems quite shiney in this pic, but the lighting makes it look worse than it is. It’s about the same as the Kotobukiya Konomi Yuzuhara from To Heart 2. Although theres only months in between the two figures being made, Konomi just seems superior in build, facially it looks better, the eyes are better and it’s just cute all round. This may be due to the character designs of To Heart looking significantly different to the character designs of To Heart 2 though.

The colours of the figure are fairly plain, but well painted, so it’s all good. Her skirt is gently wafting as if there were a light breeze, which is also nice, better than just a static figure any day. Even if the pose is static, just standing, wafting clothing can make a figure so much better. The paintwork stands up, even now, 3 years after its making, the only bit which is below par is the bag, would have been nice if they’d got that spot on too, since the clothing doesnt let it down. Some nice skin shading on the legs and nice shading on the clothes too. The yellow is alot brighter than Chie’s sweater, although the HLJ pic doesnt show it. Her pose is cute, and reserved, kinda shy, I didn’t have any shy-looking figures before this. And it’s intresting that every To Heart figure I own is holding a bag, even Tomoko Hoshino!! (I love the ribs on her sweater!! Bagged her a few expo’s back for just £6!!!) Once I get Multi and Akari it will ruin my bag-holding run, but thats fine lol, was a total fluke after all. And I can’t help but notice how the price of figures have risen in the past few years. 3400, 3800 yen these To Heart figures cost back in 2005 at time of release. And how we’re paying over 5000 yen for figures of the same standards in alot of cases? Seems weird….

Anyways, I’m moving into my uni accomodation tomorrow, I think I’ll get the net connected without much hassle, but we’ll have to see… I’ll try and set some articles to get published on a timer… I think you can do that… I’ll have a go anyways lol.

Suprise Loot Aqquired!!

Sorry for the crappy pic... tis better than the other one I could have used lol.

Sorry for the crappy pic... tis better than the other one I could have used lol.

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…)
