Jan-Feb Mega Haul!

sousuukessousuukes9 months agoLoot
Hi MFC, I'm broke as hell. Moving on.

Very image heavy!



January

First item of the new year!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593602.jpeg
I had intended to give this to a friend as a gift but after a particularly nasty falling out I decided to hang onto him. Debated selling him but thought he'd go quite well with another figure I already owned...

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593604.jpeg
I know nothing about One Piece or the character but I'm glad I held onto him in the end. Fighto!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

Next to arrive was my monthly Amiami order.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593716.jpeg
I was excited for everything in this loot but there was one thing I've been looking forward too for a very, very long time.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593296.jpeg
And that would be Undertaker! This figure was the one that piqued my interest in figure collecting when it was announced sometime in 2015 (or thereabouts). By the time I seriously started collecting his price was insane! When his re-release was announced I leapt out of my chair and let out a screech of victory, scaring my friends shitless in the process. (Sorry guys lmao)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593304.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593302.jpeg
I had very high expectations but he was even better that I ever anticipated!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593300.jpeg
The amount of detail on his scythe blew me away. Everything about this figure is perfect!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593298.jpeg
His hair is nicer than mine wtf. It's also translucent at the tips which I had no idea about, but I am definitely not complaining. This figure was worth waiting for and I'm still so happy to FINALLY get my hands on him!

And now that mini rant/review is over with I'll get to the rest of the stuff lmao.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594070.jpeg
Sonico! I'd been kinda hesitant to add any more female figures to my collection. I was worried people would think it was weird. Then, I had a really important realisation - I actually don't give a shit what they think. Bring on the Boobs™.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594074.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594076.jpeg
This figure has all my weaknesses wrapped up in one nice little package. Pastel colours, cute base, cute girl, all that good stuff.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594072.jpeg
The little macaron tower is super cute too!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487593832.jpeg
I bought Marth just for those bonus GCS scarves. Thought I'd give him to a friend as a surprise gift but she bought him just a few days before I planned on giving him to her. Haven't opened him yet but it's kinda tempting, he's got a lot of nice accessories. Also should note that I haven't even used those scarves. I'd planned on putting them on my Izaya and Shizuo Figmas but didn't even consider that they might not fit. Spoiler alert - they fucking don't lol.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594197.jpeg
Last figure in this box is something I've been thinking about getting for a while. After adding Sonico to my order I thought these two would go nicely together so I stalked Amiami's preowned section until she finally showed up in B/B condition.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594201.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594199.jpeg
Just as cute as I was hoping! Was a little put off at first since she came out of the box smelling slightly of cigarette smoke - something I thought Amiami would've made known before I bought her. A quick go-over with a slightly damp cloth and some airing out has her as good as new though!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594383.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594385.jpeg
My monthly Amiami order is never complete until I add at least 100000 unnecessary miscellaneous items to it, is it?

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594387.jpeg
So many pointless items! Hooray! My favourite thing here is probably the Chuuya lollipop though. What a great concept. It tasted great, btw. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299144.jpeg
I've almost just bought this tapestry a thousand times, but managed to talk myself out of it. Until it dropped in price to like 920 yen, then I just had to get it. Naturally.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594467.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594469.jpeg
And of course, some clear/paper files. Lots of Touken Ranbu ones since I've actually started playing the game, thus completing my full descent into sword hell.


And that was it for January, on to February's haul!

February


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594590.jpeg
After deliberating whether I not I should get them, I eventually decided to get both the Shiro and Sora Nendos. Bought these two from a lovely seller here on MFC!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594636.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594691.jpeg
I love them both but Sora has a special place in my heart lmao.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594592.jpeg
They're so cute! Really love the vibrant colours.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594899.jpeg
Some IRL shit happened towards the end of January when my cat got really sick, and I dealt with the stress by buying more stuff.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487595038.jpeg
I've had my eye on this for a while now, and Mandarake had one for 8k so I figured I'd grab him before his price went up again!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487595040.jpeg
When I opened the box I just burst out laughing. That's... a lot of hands.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487595044.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487595042.jpeg
My first RAH and I couldn't be more impressed. Everything about this figure is almost creepily flawless. My mum really likes all my Sebastian figures and agrees that this one is the nicest lmao. He has so many display options I can't wait to try them all!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594833.jpeg
Mikorin is probably the one anime character I relate to the most. Why is there only one (very tiny) figure of him? OTL

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594835.jpeg
Koto did a really great job! Wish this could've been a 1/8 but alas.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594389.jpeg
I had absolutely no clue what this was when I bought it to be honest. It had Sebastian on it and I thought it was fitting. Turns out it's a cute little memo pad thing! Comes in handy when I need to mark pages in my uni textbooks.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487595240.jpeg
Some Mandarake loot! Oh my God I'd been looking for these Durarara!! perfumes for what feels like 100 years. The very few times I'd seen them for sale anywhere they were outrageously overpriced, and in moments of desperation I almost caved.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487595293.jpeg
Good thing I didn't though - I found on them on Mandarake Urban Mine auctions and got all 3 barely used for less than $7 lmao. The Psychedelic ones are super nice and I've been using them quite a bit! The Tsugaru one was kinda disappointing though. Just smells like generic cologne. Ah well, I'm just glad to finally have them!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487594391.jpeg
This random Shizuo item was up on the Urban Mines too. Had no idea what it was but for 10 yen I didn't really care. The packaging said there was supposed to be a CD that came with it but I'm happy enough with this cute keychain and cloth thing!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1487595163.jpeg
Almost didn't grab this Kuroshit artbook but I'm so so so glad I did! It's full of lovely artwork with no extra text or filler. Planning on getting the second artbook eventually too.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489300396.jpeg
When I started playing Touken Ranbu, Ichigo was the 2nd sword I smithed, Hasebe being the first. Still can't believe my luck! I got Tsuru on my second day too wtf. I took that as a sign and decided to finally grab his Nendoroid. Searched around for him for a while on Mandarake since I wanted to get his rubber strap, too.

I'll post a picture of all the Touken Ranbu Nendoroids from this loot at the very end otherwise we're gonna be here for years lmao.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299626.jpeg
Again, I've been meaning to get these guys for a while but put it off. They ended up being two of my favourites once I started playing the game though, so I had to have them! They were on sale on TOM and I had some leftover points I had to use, so I thought why not.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489300398.jpeg
8kg worth of stuff from Amiami. Shipping stung a bit - over 12k yen. The box was huge! A friend of mine was staying over the morning this arrived, and after much scientific research we found that two short adults could fit in the dreaded "Amiami coffin" with no troubles.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489300400.jpeg
Small stuff first. I liked that Chuuya lollipop enough to get more, as well as a few other things. The Love Live! pen and YOI keychain are for friends, though.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489300000.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299624.jpeg
There were a bunch of adorable Bungou Stray Dogs mugs up for preorder and I almost grabbed the lot before just settling for my favourite boy.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299998.jpeg
I was thinking of buying a Nendoroid Playset but found this to be a much more affordable alternative. Haven't had a play with it yet but it's super adorable, I was really impressed considering it was pretty cheap.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489725227.jpeg
I think I need a clear file intervention.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299142.jpeg
I paid like 400 yen for this calendar thinking it was going to be roughly the size of a mini tapestry, but as it turns out it's absolutely massive. Asked my friend how I should display it and she tore off the pages until March and told me to glue it to the wall. Thanks. OTL

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489300404.jpeg
And now onto the figures! I really did go overboard this month, oops. The first is an impulse buy of a character I was unfamiliar with.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299130.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299132.jpeg
I have no idea who she is or what she's from, but this figure is just gorgeous! Really love the colours and just... Everything, really. She comes with glasses but personally I like displaying her without them.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299134.jpeg
The detail on her coat is definitely one of the highlights!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299990.jpeg
Really glad I preordered Dazai when he first went up for sale, his aftermarket price is absolutely insane!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299994.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299996.jpeg
I love how GSC included this extra drowning Dazai accessory. Unfortunately mine arrived with a giant scratch on it, but I'm just keeping it on my desk so it doesn't bother me all that much. Just waiting for Chuuya now, c'mon April!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299988.jpeg
The new Kuroshitsuji movie really sucked me back in to the series, even though the movie hasn't been subbed yet.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299138.jpeg
Wasn't sure what to expect from the Cu-Poche line, but this figure is really impressive. He's basically a Nendoroid with normal proportions, and he was so much easier to pose and move around than a Nendo. Hope Koto continue making these, I'd love to get a few more!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299986.jpeg
Again, I have no idea who this is. Bright red hair appears to be one of my many weaknesses, it seems.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299136.jpeg
He's a lot bigger than what I thought he'd be!

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299984.jpeg
She's cute. No idea who she is. Anyone else sensing a theme here?

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299638.jpeg
I absolutely adore this figure, she has one of the nicest bases I've come across.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299642.jpeg
Alter never fails to impress! I love how the ice cream is melting where she's sitting. Because that's what we all want from our anime figures- realism! Lmao.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299640.jpeg
Flawless all around!


http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299982.jpeg
I am... Somewhat familiar with Love Live!, in that some of my Twitter friends play it. Idols are there. It happens at school, I think. That's about the extent of my knowledge.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299628.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299630.jpeg
Once again Alter goes above and beyond with the details. I got this figure in B/B condition and it looks like someone took her out of the box for 5 minutes and put her back. Everything about this figure is flawless, from the sculpt to the paint, just everything! Definitely one of the most eye catching figures I own, that's for sure.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299632.jpeg
She has the nicest legs I've ever seen on a figure oh my god.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299146.jpeg
Again, no idea who this is.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299634.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299636.jpeg
She sure is pretty though! Officially the oldest figure in my collection, too. I'm in love with those thigh highs. Help.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489300402.jpeg
Almost to the end! Kuri wasn't my favourite sword when I started playing, but he's grown on me a whole lot.

http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299992.jpeg
Last item in this haul is Tanuki!


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/sousuukes1489299140.jpeg
And here we have my Touken Ranbu stuff, minus my scales of course! I seriously need to reorganise my shelves and have them less bunched together and put a few Touran scales in with them too. I have two more 1/8 sword boys coming this month, where on earth am I going to put them all. OTL


http://68.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmzodxZaOI1qg9aa7.gif


And that's all for January and February! Managed to grab most of the items from my wishlist in these two months and now I'm just waiting on a few preorders in the coming months. Not much space left so I don't have much choice but to stick to preorders only!

Hope you enjoyed reading this loot, thank you as always! ^^

sousuukes (9 months ago) #19218320Hehehe it's so hard to resist on Amiami, especially cheapish things. A monthly order somehow turns into 9432092 things and it's like... How on earth did that happen lmao.
Is it ok if I send you a FR? We seem to have a lot of common interests! :P


Ugh, I know how that feels! It's like "well, it's just a couple hundred yen and I already have a parcel coming, why not" x N times and then when the parcel comes, "when did I order so many things?!"...

And sure thing! I always like meeting people with common interests ^^

starlightshine (9 months ago) #19155383I tried searching for the lollipops on amiami but I couldn't find them! Maybe they're out of stock or something. Or maybe I'm doing it wrong.
Haha yes, I'll get them Tourabu figures one day... Definitely... I'm going on exchange next year and I kinda want to save up a bit first until I return haha

sousuukes (9 months ago) #19142800Thanks! :D Hope you can find Mikorin, he's so cute! Maybe one day we'll get a second season of GSNK. OTL
Undertaker really is amazing. He's really big too! His box feels like it weighs a ton lmao. Oh gosh though I have no impulse control when it comes to figures. Nozomi cost an arm and a leg but she is sooooooo worth it. :P
You should definitely grab some of those BSD lollipops lmao they're really fun to display! Kinda felt bad about eating one lmao. The Tourabu figures are dangerous trap to fall into - once you get one you just can't help completing the set! Definitely worth getting though, they're so gorgeous. ;o;

starlightshine (9 months ago) #19095200Oh god this mega haul is amazing. I can't believe you got Mikorin! That's one of the figures I promised myself I would get one day. I just love how he looks. And we need more Nozaki-kun figures man, where is my Chiyo??!!
That Undertaker figure looks great too! Love the scythe. I'm amazed at the number of 'I don't know this character but it looks good so I'm getting it' figures you have... Especially that Alter Nozomi, she costs a bomb doesn't she?
Holy shit they have BSD lollipops??? Why didn't anybody tell me gdi I want them too. And looking at your BSD files makes me want to get them too... Damn it. And I'll get me some of those Tourabu figures one day!

BVibes (9 months ago) #19133247Is white-tack something not super sticky then? So, it can be removed easy?

White tack is Blu-tack, but white. Think white tack is less greasy than its blue equivalent, but possibly a bit less sticky too. There are various brands of it though.

sousuukes (9 months ago) #19080383--

With Marth, his cape makes it difficult to wear the scarf. I could have done it wrong though.
Yea, I would have liked to have posed him all cool, but my patience won't allow it LOL. I don't remember having problems with other nendos and figmas I own.

tharglet (9 months ago) #19059078--

Your advice is appreciated. The problem with Marth is that he was given many joints, but they are a bit of a different plastic I think. He was meant to be posed in many dynamic poses so many little parts can fall. For example, his elbows can bend, so I have trouble with his arms falling off.
I'll look for similar things in my area, though, if I decide to try posing him again. Is white-tack something not super sticky then? So, it can be removed easy?

ChocolateSpider (9 months ago) #19078689This is a super awesome loot you have here. I especially like that Nozomi figure. I keep telling myself to pick it up, yet I keep forgetting to place an order for some reason. I should check to see if it still available anywhere.
Thanks for sharing this with us. :D

Thanks heaps! :D

Nozomi sure is gorgeous. Alter (almost) always delivers! She shows up sometimes on Amiami for about 10k used, hope you can find one! Definitely worth it.

Thanks again! Always love reading your loots and reviews as well. :D
