February Loot post - ☆Idol Boys Hell♪

starlightshinestarlightshine8 months agoLoot
My first loot post! I welcome any constructive criticism :) Can't believe I bought enough items in a month to have a loot post...

As the title implies, this loot post will contain mostly male idol merchandise. If you want to see Dazai, scroll all the way down!

First up!

Left to right: Necklace ITEM #551237, Bracelet ITEM #551233 Rubber strap ITEM #551238

I got these from the Uta no Prince-sama Shining Online Store earlier in the month. Honestly, I actually forgot about my preorder (which I did in October) until the email came. The Tokiya necklace and Tokiya bracelet aren't a set, but they were up for preorder together so I decided to get them both. The Tokiya rubber strap is actually one of those things you wrap the earphone wire around, but it's actually a little heavy and was weighing down the wire so I just kept it in the box.

If there's one thing I like about the franchise, it's that they have things like these that are functional pieces and allows me to be a low-key otaku outside while still remaining stylish. I own quite a few of such pieces (eg ITEM #348155 and ITEM #333934) and I do use them on a regular basis.

Keyholder ITEM #188552

Kind of cheating with this one since I didn't buy it myself but a friend got it for me as a birthday present.

Top row, left to right: Quartet Night - God's S.T.A.R. single (hmm, it's not in MFC database yet) here we go: ITEM #553300, Aoi Shouta photobook ITEM #235624, Click Clap magazine
Bottom: Various single bonuses, bear strap ITEM #552821, badges ITEM #552856, rubber strap ITEM #552844

I swear, I end up burning lots of money every time I go to Yahoo! Japan Auctions. Initially I wanted to look for the Utapri Rilakkuma Ichiban Kuji because I only got to know about it too late and my local anime store was out of Ai's stuff... Then of course I ended up buying other things too. Couldn't resist getting that Quartet Night single since it was going for cheap, like 200 yen on Y!JA because fans were mass buying for the event ticket application. Then I got the cute bonuses too (uploaded on tumblr here since this isn't fit for MFC). And then as a seiyuu trash I had to get Shoutan's photobook since I've been looking for it forever and it was at half price. (Might upload some photos if there are requests!) And I liked the photoshoot he did for Click Clap so I got that too. The things here cost me about 7k yen before proxy and shipping.

Tokiya badge ITEM #427317, Masato badge ITEM #459230

Wasting time at a local anime store also cost me some money. Decided to try my luck at blind boxes and got my Original Resonance team. I rarely ever get my favourites when it comes to things like this so I was pleasantly surprised to get Tokiya. Btw, selling that Masato badge! Talk to me if you want it and we can work out international shipping, unless you somehow live in Singapore.

Left to right: Ai can badge ITEM #195319, Ai small can badge strap ITEM #208853, Ai white jacket badge ITEM #459242, Tokiya trading charm ITEM #343666, Ryuuji heart rubber clip ITEM #460456, Ryuuji acrylic charm ITEM #398711

Got these secondhand from a local seller. If you notice, that Ai white jacket badge is of the same series as the Masato one above. Still looking for Tokiya's though... I figure people must be tired of seeing Utapri already so I got some Ryuuji from B-Project too. I wanted to get some Tsukiuta Rui items as well but someone beat me to it. Oh well...

And last but not least...

Dazai Osamu Nendoroid 657! ITEM #396850

Finally got him at the end of February! Ordered him from a local anime store, which has decent prices; it cost me just about one dollar more than if I had mass ordered or got it from AmiAmi, so I would say it's a pretty good deal. He's my first Nendo!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/starlightshine1488474514.jpeg
Here's him out of the box! So cute. I had trouble fitting in the nendo stand into him though, I was scared that I'd end up breaking something.

He's planning on bullying Chuuya again, isn't he.

I love how they included the drowning scene parts. It's hilarious.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/starlightshine1488474907.jpeg
He's more cute than intimidating. This is probably going to be my semi-permanent pose of him!

Aaaaand that's the last of it! Whew... My next month's loot should have more Yuri on Ice items, I think. (Who am I kidding, I just bought idol boys again today. Dammit.)

Until next time!

starlightshine (8 months ago) #18725314It is indeed :) I was thinking of putting up some close-up pictures of the individual items on their MFC pages a few days later, when I'm less busy. Thanks!

It's a nice idea!

Marutaro (8 months ago) #18693649how does the company determine the packaging of the nendo? i've never seen such a unique packing!
According to the Dazai nendo page, the difference in packaging is because this nendo was made in the Japan workshop. I realise I didn't really show it in my photos above, so in this shot I deliberately showed the base and you can see it's written "Made in Japan" there.

The back of the box also says "Made in Japan" at the bottom right corner.

I didn't realize people would talk about the box so I didn't take photos of it. If anyone wants to see more of the box, just let me know! But I'll be busy these few days so I probably can only show those photos a few days later.

Edit: the bbcode doesn't seem to work so I'm leaving the pictures as external links instead.

heartfulcries (8 months ago) #18670740not into Utapri at all

Good, don't start, it's hell :P why am I a fan of Mamo orz if it weren't for him I wouldn't be here

Discreet merch is nice and all, but I think you'll have a greater appreciation of them if you're actually interested in the series. Might as well just get pretty things otherwise, right?

Hey, there are dozens of us here! Dozens!

It's always nice to see loot featuring male characters, even though they might not be from series I'm in to. I'm sometimes tempted by the pretty 'discreet' merch from Utapri and Ainana as well, though I'm not into Utapri at all and I kinda fell out of Ainana hell OTL.

And hello fellow collector from Singapore too! ^^
