Maakie (8 days ago) #2345049Ik was eerst ook een beetje angstig, maar als ze in elkaar zitten zijn ze superstevig. Het is meer het vervoeren en het in elkaar zetten wat niet zo leuk is. :P Maar al mijn vitrinekasten hebben recentelijk een verhuizing naar zo goed als de andere kant van het land overleefd, dus het is te doen! :P
Huh wat? Maar Wikipedia zei dat de eerste wel op de PSP is uitgekomen...?
Leuk! ^^ Wat je trouwens ook nog kan overwegen zijn die keychain guards die ik hier meerdere users al heb zien gebruiken. Dat je zo'n plasticje om de hanger heen doet. ^^
Ik stuur je ff een PBtje nu hier met zijn naam. >:I
Raar gedoe allemaal, maar sommige mensen zijn een beetje drama-lama's. Heb zelf ook altijd wel wat rare dingen hoor, zo heb ik nu eerst iemand die een (cosplay)vriendin was, maar op Abunai! gunde ze me geen blik waardig, terwijl ik 3x geprobeerd heb een praatje met haar aan te gaan. Het zou makkelijker zijn als mensen gewoon laten weten wat hun probleem is. :///
Ik zou zeggen, kijk nog even meer rond en kies dan wat je het fijnste vind qua websites. :) Momenteel is Facebook het meest populair ja, maar met veel gevolgen van dien. Ik ken redelijk wat mensen en die hebben het probleem dat ondanks dat ze hun nickname van hun echte naam gescheiden willen houden, dat het toch naar buiten komt. Niet eens door eigen fouten, maar meer omdat een vriend/vriendin uitroept "hey [echte naam]!", want tsja, als je iemand (goed) kent, waarom nicknames blijven gebruiken... Gebruikelijk natuurlijk, maar als je idd probeert zo anoniem mogelijk te blijven kan het heel storend zijn. Ohja en nog een andere die ik me net herinner, heb een vriendin met een cosplay-page, maar meestal taggen mensen die haar kennen dan haar persoonlijke page op foto's. Waardoor haar normale FB-profiel allemaal gelinkt is aan cosplay-foto's die ze daar liever buiten houdt. Moeilijk allemaal en je moet heel erg opletten. o.O En daarom begin ik er niet aan. :')
Yay voor de loot! :D Zie ik daar een kook/knutselsetje in de achtergrond verborgen? :) Ik heb er pas nog één gemaakt voor snoepsushi, moet ik nog steeds eens een blog over gaan schreeuwen als review/tutorial, hrmmm. :P

Wahh sorry voor het extreem late antwoord!! ;u;

Ik wil als ik op kamers ga misschien een Detolf kopen maar tot die tijd display ik mn figures op m'n bureau verhoging(elke week afstoffen is vermoeiend tho ;u; )

Dangan Ronpa is origineel in Japans uitgekomen op PSP maar beide vertalingen zijn voor PSVita.

Wel key chain guards werken misschien voor straps maar niet echt voor dingen als Asuka denk ik. Maar ze hangt redelijk veilig aan de binnenkant van m'n laptop tas... Imma closet nerd P:

Ik ben in ieder geval blij dat ik er nu achter kom dat hij zo extreem is dan later, want nu kom ik het nog hebben. Als ik 'm al wat langer zou hebben gekend was dit nogal vervelend geweest. Ik heb mijn Abunai! er niet door laten verpesten en ben eigenlijk heel erg tevreden over t weekendje. Binnenkort het eerste echte event in m'n eigen stad, nu maar hopen dat tomofair n beetje leuk wordt.

Ik heb op Facebook momenteel eigenlijk alleen mensen die ook in de conventie scene zitten of in ieder geval over m'n hobby weten dus ik heb er geen probleem mee. Ik heb er geen last van als mensen 'n naam weten want ik heb niks te verbergen voor vrienden en voor non-vrienden staat mijn Facebook info niet open.
Ik weet je werkelijke naam maar ik vind het veel leuker om je Maakie te noemen, het klink gewoon veel te schattig~!! c:

Oh man die voedsel knutsel kits tergen me al conventies lang dus ik moest er gewoon een keertje een uitproberen. Ik had een mini fastfood menu en mini sushi. De sushi kit was super leuk om te maken en zag er heel schattig uit maar was echt NIET te vreten. De mini fastfood kit daarentegen was super lekker en alles proefde echt zoals t hoort, wat best wel bizar was(broodje smaakt naar brood, burgertje naar vlees, frietjes naar aardappel etc.)

Zeg zeg Maakie, ik vraag het me nu al een tijdje af, je hebt geen Facebook maar heb je toevallig wel zoiets als Skype?? c:

Maakie (4 days ago) #2350621Hey~! No problem, take your time! ^^
Well, NECA is limited to video games only and most of them are also from US games. Some Japanese games got figures from NECA too, like Resident Evil/Biohazard, Street Fighter and Castlevania, but I think that's about it, can't think of anymore...
I meant that I think that the idol-culture is something really strange for people here! ;) I think that for you in Indonesia it's already more known, but here in Europe people don't know anything about idols and we never see their music. Idol-groups don't exist here, it's either a solo-singer or a band. The only way to find out about idol-music in general is to look it up online. Personally I heard about it through conventions and looked up more information myself online and found music through Youtube and information on Wikipedia. ;)
Thanks for the comment and I replied back to you! It's always a lot harder to review action figures, but it was fun to do again! ^^ The next few I have planned though, will be reviews of scaled figures. ;)
Well EMS shipping for 20$ is quite okay! For me the cheapest package is around $20 for a service that can be compared to unregistered SAL (no tracking code, will arrive within 1-6 weeks). So it looks like you are better off! ;)
Mario already has a big head in his original design and on the SHF figure. :') And the Nendoroid makes it even more bigger! I think it's indeed how his face is so round that makes it the most weird of all... xD
Ah! D: Which one was your Revolmini? I was already a bit afraid of the line, because with my normal Revoltechs I already have posing, joints and stability problems... :/


Oh, they also created Biohazard? Really have to check on it then, I actually liked street fighter but, I heard the sculpting of NECA SF got complains especially on Chun Li.

Wow, I never know that... So, there's no such kind of idol show like US did on American Idol? In Indonesia there is Indonesian Idol show & there's alot of solo & band singer here.

Good! I'm really2 expecting to see another of your action figure review here.

I see, I'm currently asking to my US fellows if they're interested. By the way when you're shipping outside (like you once share the experience to me), what kind of payment do you use? Paypal?

For me, his head was quite okay, atleast we get to see how round is his face but, what I don't really like from the nendoroid is that his body feels really awkward. I guess it'd be better if they keep the proportions accurately to Mario instead of keeping Nendoroid's usual proportions.

Here item #206339, he's too damn microscopic & his actual figure face didn't look like in the boxart prototype. You know what I don't feel like it to write the review at all here, & when I received him he's not even sealed so, it's hard to tell the figure is new or not.

Maakie (18 days ago) #2329197I guess because Raphael is more the fans favorite instead of Leo? It actually happens in quite some movies and series that the real leader or main character is not the favorite of the watchers/followers of the series! :O
And every NECA figure is as detailed as that, they are great! :D (Except for them to have no bases and the packaging. :P) It is very different with each NECA figure how articulated they are. The one I showed you can only move his arms up and down, turn his waist and turns his neck. But the ones I have from Bioshock can bend their knees and elbows too. I guess they look at what is the best for the characters' design.
Yeah my bf has the same. If something is not done, he has to work extra to get it done. So taking days off with the wrong timing can really make his work a lot more stressful and then he has to work overtime too. >.<
Haha, yeah I can understand how you feel! Sometimes watching a series also triggers for me that I want merchandise of it. xD Too bad it also isn't possible for you to have translated versions! I guess because the themes of the game are too Japan-oriented with the Idols and all, that it wouldn't sell good enough outside of Japan...?
Yeah, in general I don't review much action figures, since I think they are quite hard to review! But I think I'm doing well with the grades I'm giving them! I hope I can upload my newest review somewhere this week!
Yes, my focus will still be on Yu-Gi-Oh! I will also focus more on the older Mecha Musume figures and works from artist POP. But from those series Yu-Gi-Oh! is the only one that currently is still active when it comes to figure announcements.
Good luck with that! Unfortunately I can't help you, because most of my own experiences with shipping companies are bad! >.<
I think the Mario SHF looks better than the Nendoroid, the proportions of the Nendoroid look really weird for me...I know Nendoroids come with very oversized heads, but Mario just looks so weird. Maybe it's because it's such a famous character and I'm not used to Mario at all with such a huge head. xD I think Luigi looks better as a Nendoroid btw. :P


Hello! I finally got to reply you here, recently my laptop was under repair service but now it's good as new again.

I think so... I just found that, Raphael is one of the creator's favorite but, the other creator's likes Donatello. Ah, yeah... In that movie, it's like Raphael is the main guy.

Nice, might have to check this, although I'm not sure I'll get 1 since there's none of my favorite character was made by NECA as far as I see.

Probably... They're mostly shown the life in Japan but, they could always dub them whatever they wish to be actually.

It's fun though because I love doing a new poses for my figures. I have saw your Anzu review & I've dropped you a comment!

Well, all I found that shipping via EMS from my place to US would cost 20 USD, it's the best I could found so far..

Yeah, I agree with you. I think they're trying to keep how the Nendoroids are usually made, typically big headed & small bodies. But, this Mario looks more cuter since his face looks more... Round-ish I suppose, while SHF Mario was made to be faithfully how he was in the games. Lol, if you take a look on SHF Luigi, he actually looks very accurate to the games than the Nendoroid.

Btw, I've experienced myself on owning Revolmini for the 1st time & as a result I completely dissappointed, I think I wanna throw it for good.
