iJuly Madoka+Shin Gojira lootn/a    Readers' selection (2017-07-16)

Hello again~ I've been on a bit of a shopping spree so you're getting another loot post from me relatively soon OTL... For the record, I only have one Shin Gojira item, but there's a lot of pictures. It'll be at the very end. So, without further ado~

Picture heavy!

First I have Seven Two's Kyubey! item #79104

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151329.jpeg
I've had my eye on him for a while, so I'm happy to finally have him thanks to a fellow MFC user ^w^

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151331.jpeg

I was especially interested in the soul gem and grief seed because if I'm not mistaken, while he isn't 1/1, they are, and I love props.

I tried to get him next to my dog for scale, but she would Not have it. She knows.

Next off is figma Homura, uniform ver. item #96609, whom I got secondhand from Amiami. Of course, upon arrival she's unopened in pristine condition.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151341.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151343.jpeg
By the time she arrived, I learned that we're going to be moving, so I decided not to open her as to keep pieces together.

Along with Homura, I finished off this set of Chibi Kyun Charas with Mami item #117063 and Kyouko item #117066

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151345.jpeg
In my experience, this line is always wonderful.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151675.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151677.jpeg
I mean just look at Mami's musket ;; for that scale...! There is a dot on her face near her nose I can't get off as well as the stripes on her socks not going all the way up, but I can look past it.

ESPECIALLY FOR THE CHARLOTTE THAT COMES WITH HER

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151679.jpeg
AAA I've been really focusing on Charlotte a lot lately and this is another wonderful addition~ She's a bit unstable if you move her even slightly, however. Also, that cardboard near the bottom of the chair is meant to be removed, but for now (perhaps forever) I'm leaving it as to keep it more steady.

And of course we have Kyouko chan~ Not much to say about her except I feel like the apples are kinda outta place, but I guess there weren't any items in that scene that would make sense lol

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151681.jpeg
One of my favorite things about this set of Chibi Kyun is the backgrounds! They're gorgeous and they aren't cheap or flimsy at all!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151683.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151685.jpeg
Now I have something I'm disappointed I missed out on initially: Color Colle's Witch Collection encyclopedia #29878. It's been a long search for a full set at less than ~8000y.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151687.jpeg
I finally found the set on Surugaya for only 3k and took the risk of them being in bad shape, however they're all in excellent condition despite coming without boxes! Now I just need the 2nd set.

I feel like Charlotte is a bit washed out compared to her normal palette, but that's how it is in the prototype so I don't mind.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151689.jpeg
My beloved Sayaka's witch form ;;

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151691.jpeg
Gertrud~ I love how they went so far as to include the image on the back of the couch.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500151693.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152170.jpeg
Same with Elly! She's so detailed and wonderful!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152172.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152174.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152176.jpeg
Now I have some fanworks! I've been getting quite a few of these lately...

These are lovely double-sided acrylic charms by @popoalu [ext link ] on twitter.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152178.jpeg
They ended up being way bigger than I anticipated (if it said the size, I sure didn't bother reading it Lol). I love the glitter! It was hard to capture in a picture, but it looks way cuter in person.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152180.jpeg
Garage kits have always interested me because I love the concept of something so personalized, but I'm a perfectionist, so I'm terrified of messing up. Fortunately, I was able to find some very simple, high quality ones by T's System for only 1500k each on Mandarake and discovered that, if I'm willing to pay extra, I can use Buyee to circumvent my ban lol

First off is Charlotte! item #94045

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152182.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152184.jpeg
She's perfect! hardly any tabs and not much sanding to do! They hardest part I think will be painting, since my hands tend to shake/tremble (as evidenced by my occasional blurry pictures) and I don't have an airbrush, but I'm looking forward to it!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152186.jpeg
Secondly I have Kyubey! item #94044

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152188.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152595.jpeg
Also in wonderful condition, I think any difficulty I'll have with him is attaching his earrings and securing him to a base, since his tail is very heavy.

I have one more GK not by T's System, but by Epoxy Parfait item #99181

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152597.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500152599.jpeg
Like Kyubey and Charlotte, this is also a really nicely casted kit... even her tiny fingers are sculpted so nicely and cleanly... I'm considering doing her eyes in a style different from Yupon's but we'll see...

Since we're moving I don't think I'm gonna start on any of these until after we're settled in, but I will do blogs for probably all of them, so maybe look forward to that sometime in 2018! >:3

...and that's it for the Madoka section.

For the grand finale, I have the Art of Shin Gojira. Retailing at 9800¥ it's a huge 560 page book filled with design sketches, behind the scenes photos, and crew interviews. Also included is the screenplay.

I took a lot of pictures and yet still feel like I didn't take enough since it is such a dense book

--EDIT: I was fixing images and suddenly the spoiler tags for the next two parts broke? so they're unspoilered, sorry orz

Models
Aah, my cute Kamata kun and Shinagawa kun~

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500173708.jpeg
Gojira's tail is one of the more fascinating parts of the movie, IMO, so I'm glad there's lots of pictures of it from angles not viewable.

Misc
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/hugtower1500173710.png
There's also lots of shots of sets and how they did the CG, as well as tons of pages of interviews and things such as Maki's paper on Godzilla and his application for a Social Security number.

If you loved Anno's take on Godzilla and have 10k to spare, I'd definitely recommend getting this book! Just be aware that it's very heavy and I paid 9k more just for shipping LOL

Also, this book isn't on the database much to my dismay, but when I tried to add it I got a little overwhelmed with all the extras and didn't want to abuse the draft feature, so if anyone is so inclined... ;w;

And that concludes everything! I hope you enjoyed it~ I've got a few non-preorder stuff coming, but I'm going to do my best not to self medicate shop anymore, so until next time~

I'm a little flustered but I'm happy you like my articles ;; I'm bad at keeping my room straightened up, but I'll try to do a room tour eventually <':

Betka (12 days ago) #23523615Yaaay! Lots of Madoka loot! This huge Kyubey is amazing! :D Homura figma is cute!! I was thinking about getting her too lately, she's so pecious! (but I know that it would be just a matter of time for me to buy whole team xD)
Soul gem is really pretty! *_* And good luck with painting this GKs! This makes me want to buy and try paint one too :D
Gojira artbook look really outstanding! You're lucky!


I've been slowly working my way through all the figmas >_< At the beginning I only planned to get Kyouko and Sayaka but then I fell deeper in love with the show so I had to get the rest! Only magical girls Mami and Homura left to go! The soul gem really is pretty! It's got an iridescent shine to it that doesn't really show up in photos and I'm a huge sucker for iridescent stuff so I love it! Thank you for the well wishes wrt the GKs ;w; There's a lot to them so I'm a little intimidated, but I'm sure my passion will shine through~ aha

Thank you so much <3

Celestrial (12 days ago) #23510800I am so very jealous of the Shin-Godzilla book! Anno's take on Godzilla is one of the most inspiring and creative films i have seen in some time. I have been wanting to get my hands of this book for ages but could never afford. I love that it has the same packaging as the Evangelion Rebuild production books!
Thanks for sharing! Great loot.

I completely agree! Admittedly I've only seen the original 1954 one (and the Americanization) besides this one, but I really love the themes presented in both of them! I hope you can get it someday! It was my sole birthday gift from my parents this year aha... though I still had to pay for shipping myself OTL. Is the packaging really similar to Rebuild's? I'm not sure I've seen them, but that's really neat!

Thank you for reading! <:
