January Loot!

Today’s loot post from me is a big one^^ Received 6 nendoroids, 3 figmas and 9 scale figures last month!! However, I will be mainly touching on the scale figures today. For the items below, 1SGD=0.8USD.

Madoka Maiko Ver.- S$50|Local seller (unopened): Madoka looks really good in this outfit. Hope GSC will also nendo-rize Homura in her Haregi outfit.

Sinon- S$42|Amiami: She's very unstable with the special stand and topples over easily. When I wasn’t looking she decided to take a nice plunge into my paper bin and got her hairpiece scratched. Luckily GSC was kind enough to send me a replacement.

Honoka- S$41|Mandarake unopened

Devil Homura- S$47|Amiami
Tohka- S$55|Local seller (unopened): Haha was lucky to get her at a good price from a local who didn't know her true market value...
Tsubasa- S$40|Amiami A/B condition: My beautiful Tsubasa-chan :))

Bakemonogatari Petit Vol 3- S$30|Mandarake unopened: Had bought Vol 1 and 2 last year. After breaking the seal of the box, to my horror Shinobu was missing her right arm due to a production defect!! If it was her left arm it is still possible to use the donut arm, but there is no alternative part for her right arm. Kinda disappointed but i'm not too affected as I was gonna use the sitting pose anw.

Danganronpa 2 One Coins- S$56|Amiami: These One Coins are far cheaper and easier to collect than the FuRyu Minna no Kuji deformed figures, I had to spend about $170 to collect all 15 Dangan 1 deformed figures, compared to $112 for all 18 Dangan 2 One coins ;___;


~Figmas~
View spoilerHide spoilerhttp://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/lusciouscookies1423018856.jpeg

Kirito- S$43|Amiami
Figma Saber 1.0- S$20|Local seller (unopened)
Figma Saber 2.0- S$52|Amiami: Got Saber 1.0 cheap to display with 2.0. As you can see, her blister has yellowed significantly due to the high humidity here, but the figma is still new. Am also really happy to finally get Saber 2.0 also after her delays T.T

4x Distage base+2x extension set- S$55|Local seller (unopened): Saw some pics of these on MFC picture/934132&... and really liked the concept. However, the Basic sets are really hard to find now (Plamoya was selling them for like 38usd each last time IIRC, and now sold alr), so I was lucky to find a seller on a forum selling 4 basic sets for only $10 each! I later got the extension sets for 450yen each on amiami.

~Scale Figures~
View spoilerHide spoiler
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/lusciouscookies1423738457.jpeg

Timeshift-$129|Mandarake unopened: After seeing her on display at the Aniplex booth at AFA, I knew I had to have her! What better way to have both my two favourite characters Homura and Kyubey in one figure?? At first I was a bit apprehensive as I’ve never bought an Aniplex-manufactured figure before, but thankfully my Homura was without flaws.

You Are Not Alone-$150|Local seller (unopened): An impulse buy. Told myself I wouldn’t get her after buying Timeshift but after seeing her for only $150 unopened on a hobby Facebook group...

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/lusciouscookies1423738455.jpeg

Kiritsugu-$50|Amiami B/C condition: Bought him to display tgt with GSC's Saber Motored Curaisser like this:picture/471155&.... His ‘C’ condition box damage was only some creases on top of the box window lol.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/lusciouscookies1423192013.jpeg

Nagito-$105|Local shop: Missed out on Amiami's PO. Upon his release they didn't restock him (IIRC they restocked Hajime twice) and his price skyrocketed in the aftermarket. Obviously Koto underproduced him, and I had to buy him at retail price from one of my contacts who ran an online store called Animate Corner. 6 weeks later, he arrived with a really serious defect:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/lusciouscookies1423098686.jpeg

Typical Koto finishing, they didn't spread the plastic sheets evenly enough in the blister so a large patch of paint rubbed off on the blister. Thankfully with the help of a MFC user Envatta, I've contacted Koto for a replacement and they have agreed to send one.

Wouldn't it be nice is there was a Monogatari/Danganronpa crossover? Where SHSL pervert Koyomi Araragi wakes up to find himself in Hope's Peak academy...

Satsuki-$108|Local shop: Satsuki looks absolutely badass, though my main complaint is that her sword is not pointing upwards like in the prototype, but rather at an angle. Seems to be the same for other people also, it doesn’t look bad but then again it’s not true to the prototype. Oh well, I still like her!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/lusciouscookies1423738453.jpeg

Hitagi- $153|Amiami B/B condition: Previously I’ve resigned myself to just buying Tsubasa out of the 8 GSC Monogatari girls as the prices of some of the them like Suruga are crazy. However, while stalking Amiami’s preowned section for Tsubasa one day I chanced upon a B/B Hitagi for only 12k!! I was like whoaaa, A/B hitagis usually go for 15k so this is a really good deal, I thought as I clicked the ‘Order’ button. 2 weeks later my impulsiveness was duly rewarded with this:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/lusciouscookies1423098684.jpeg

No wonder it was cheap. As the figure was without its protective plastic sheets, it got scratched by the blister, like Nagito. Oh well, at least it’s not visible from the back. Buying preowned figures from Ami is always a gamble but at that price, can’t complain.

Shinobu-$110|Local shop: For Shinobu one of the local distributors here had an unbelievable price of only $79 for her rerelease. 79 DOLLARS!!! That’s only 63usd! I had the chance to buy her at that price but gave it up to buy ITEM #144354 instead at her launch as I didn't have the feels for shinobu then… Now Kyoko has dropped about $20 and I had to buy a $110 shinobu from a local shop. Which I know is also relatively cheap BUT STILL.

Tsubasa- $145|Amiami B/B condition: After what happened to Hitagi, I was really scared about the condition of my Tsubasa as she was cheap also for a B/B figure (compared to 14k A/B if I’m not mistaken). She was the last figure to arrive but thankfully was in acceptable condition.


~Holy Grail~
View spoilerHide spoilerSaber Alter: Vortigern-$180|Local shop: I had long ago given up on getting Saber Alter, she occasionally (once or twice a month) appears for 25k yen unopened on Manda and is bought immediately, and I’m not going to spend $300+ on a figure that originally cost $140-150. But 2 weeks ago while enquiring about the status of my Nagito order I casually asked the Animate Corner boss if he could help me to source for a Vortigern as a consignment item.

10 minutes later he replied: ‘Got 1 saber vortigern. Misb (Mint in sealed box). Asking for $180’. Holy shit! As he takes a 10% cut as commission for every item he helps to sell, there was actually someone in Singapore willing to sell his sealed, initial release Vortigern for $160. Wow! If that kind person ever happens to read this, THANK YOU SO MUCH for selling Saber Alter at a reasonable price! If you are interested in Animate Corner’s items and services, he has an ebay page: stores.ebay.com...

Am still undecided whether to display her or not.


Thanks for reading!

pacificrimming (2 years ago) #2690066your loot is super amazing, woah. very very jealous of that timeshift homura. im doing an art project based on her and now i really want her. also love that monogatori loot (just watched the 1st ep yesterday). and the way you display your dangan ronpa scales is sort of genius.

thank you!! you can still get her for a reasonable price (11-12kyen) from mandarake. haha great that you have taken your first step in a long but great series... after bakemonogatari there's still nise, neko, second season, hana and tsukimonogatari!! thanks haha, hope to put ITEM #144330 with them soon.

lusciouscookies (2 years ago) #2689170haha yea everything should balance out in the end!! yeah agreed, when you first start out in this hobby it's quite easy to overspend to catch up on old figures, smth like what happened to me this month. but after that phase is over, can just focus on preorders already. sure, am looking forward to reading it!! haha
Haha. That phase ended for me last November. It's actually quite boring to wait for preorders now =x

Moro (2 years ago) #2689728Interesting that the aftermarket price of Timeshift Homura didn't shoot up as much as some other PMMM scales. She looks top notch, I wonder why?
I agree. She has an interesting base and her price is reasonable for a 1/7 scale but it seems like not many people like this version of Homura. Hmm..

yea, maybe due to the market already being saturated with homura figures in her mahou shoujo outfit if you include all the prize/DX figures also... haha. only plus points for timeshift besides her quality is her 1/7 scale (rest of the homu figs are 1/8) and her base
