August Loot

TiggerSharkTiggerShark2 years agoLoot
This is the loot that arrived near the end of August; it's not a review (since most of the items have some of those already, and they're quite detailed and excellent), but I'll include some comments either way.

First of all, this is my workspace (or playspace, really), before I cleared it up to make room for new figures - ignore the dust and the darkness, I took it at night with poor lighting - and all the pics are from cell phone, since I've yet to locate my camera's battery charger.

I moved all the figures to a cupboard for now (it has glass doors, but the wood still makes it a non-ideal storage for displaying figures; I'm still looking for a proper setup).

These are the boxes of my new company;

As you can see, there's 2 nendoroids, some extra parts for them, and Racing Miku of the year.

I was surprised by the amount of addons with Noel, though I knew to expect them. At first I thought they'd somehow left out the cardboard monster cutouts, before I discovered them hiding inbetween the layers of the box (so if you think yours are missing, I recommend checking there). The size of the saucer also surprised me - it's bigger than I thought.

She has a small paint defect ( a spot of black ) on one of her hands, and the ribbon tends to fall out easily, but other than that it's a truly beautiful nendoroid of one of the cutest characters in anime recently.

I couldn't resist ordering this, simply because of the expression I decided to go with and the eggplant. Because seriously, the eggplant horse is just awesome. Fittingly, I decided to display them both next to my older Hôzuki figure - I wonder if Gakupo escaped from Hell during the Obon a bit back. Well, I'm sure Hôzuki will catch him just fine.

(Also featured are two of the More parts, the moon and one of the song notes)

Finally, the biggest catch, the Racing Miku. I expected her to be bigger (she seems a bit on the small side for 1/8, especially near my other figures), but the quality is truly astounding. She has no defects that I could find, and the paint job is beautiful. Here's some appreciation pics~

walrusbukkit (2 years ago) #3949158Nice loot! That's Gakupo though, not Kaito

Wow, I must've been half asleep when I wrote all that; there's no other explanation~! I guess Kaito is easier to write than Gakupo or something xD. Thanks for the comment, I'll fix that :D

tilipitappi (2 years ago) #3411325Nice loot, Miku looks fabulous and the nendoroids are funny!

Noel tends to bonk Gakupo on the head with that leaf umbrella a lot.

nikiptc18 (2 years ago) #3411484I really want that Miku * _____ * ) I've wanted her for a while, but no money... She's so pretty! And my Noel's ribbon falls out easily, too :/... Nice loot, tho!! I'm definitely jealous!

The leaf umbrella was a nightmare to get assembled, too :P. Mostly because I feared snapping it accidentally.

The Miku figure is the only one of her I have - despite my love for vocaloid songs, and even some of the amazing figures there are of her, I hadn't yet seen one I REALLY really wanted. This, though, was different enough and beautiful - so I just had to buy her :P

zellerific (2 years ago) #3411233Nice loot! If you email GSC with a photo they may be able to send you a replacement hand for the one that has the spot :)

Thank you~! It's only one of the hands, and it's not so bad so they might not want to send one - I'm not too bothered, myself, since there're several hand choices and it's not too visible :P

PotatoLlama (2 years ago) #3411169Awesome loot! The Miku looks really nice :) and the Nendoroids look really cute!

Thanks :P. And yeah, she's one of the best I've seen when it comes to quality (they sure did good on quality control, for sure). Nendoroids brighten up the room :D
