I'm also staff in the eventmanagement for YaYcon and Abunai! So if you have any tips about those conventions or have a nice idea for an event, let me know!

My goals on this site:
1. Write a review about all figures I own that aren't reviewed yet on this site!
2. Paint GK's and make WIP/tutorial-articles of it!
3. Get better in photographing figures and make a lot of pictures!
4. Like most people here: Try to get as much figures from my wishlist.
5. Make lots of new friends! \^o^/

I like to write reviews and articles about figures, so be sure to check my blog on here: (mfc link)

I'm a MOD for club #840, club #829 and club #965 So if you have any pictures or figures with wings, flowers or samurai that aren't linked, let me know! ^^

I'm also trying to sell quite some stuff (like games, anime-dvd's, manga, magazines and other merchandise). Take a look! (ext link) It's in Dutch, but you can look at the pictures and see the prices! xP I also ship internationally! If you only want to see the figures I'm selling right now, you can look here: (mfc link)

Maakie (25 days ago) #2223320Oh ja, dat heb ik ook al vaak gemerkt! ^w^ Dat bezoekers van mijn lecture met elkaar aan de praat raken enzo. :)
Weet je, figure collecting is dan ook op conventies wel groot aanwezig met de dealer room, maar de echte enthousiastelingen en geïnteresseerden vind je dan vaak bij de lecture. :) Ik heb heb mensen die het soms meerdere keren bezoeken gewoon voor de after talk of als ze extra vragen hebben. :)


Absoluut als de tijd er is dan ben ik er ook gewoon weer bij ^_^

Maakie (13 days ago) #2242230Hey Vio!
Well, the movie was made by the same people and studios as the people that made Pirates of the Caribbean and that one was a HUGE success. Probably because of that they were thinking a bit too positive about the Lone Ranger movie... :P
I personally also never heard of people liking the movie or collecting from it. I actually don't think it has many fans... I watched the movie myself and I thought it was quite interesting, but it was too much of a "standard" Western to me, nothing really special happened to make me want to see a part 2 for example.
Nice outdoor photoshoot you did! That reminds me that it is a long time since I didn any outdoor shoots myself...nowadays I don't do much photography with my figures except for reviews... ^^''
Well, actually not! :O The legs and gun were made of foam and were very lightweight. The only uncomfortable part is that I can walk only slowly.
Hrmm I also don't know a lot from Indonesian cosplay, but from what I have read and seen online it looks like a lot of Indonesian cosplayers are more like models? So not acting or competitions, but they do a lot of photoshoots and sell photobooks and such, and are a little bit like celebrities. (Correct me if I'm wrong, though!) Here most people seem to be more into acting, competitions and being on-stage.
Does it happen so much to you? :O With sellers stealing pictures and such? Good luck with you next review!
Thank you very much! :) The appartment and the neighborhood will be a big improvement of were we currently live, so I think I will be fine!
Yeah I want to display a bit...I mean collecting means so much to me that it would be boring not to show off a small part of it... :P
I'm currently busy with packing up the last things here and I wil really move in a few days. Unfortunately I just found out that I will be without internet from the 15th of july until the 6th of august or maybe even longer... I wll try to find a way to do at least the biggest priority things on the internet, but there is a possibility I will be without internet for very long.
Yeah everything didn't go as planned, so I was a bit stressed on stage. Q.Q
Speak to you soon!

Hello!

Ah, yes! Now, that you told me, it's Gore Verbinski & Jerry Bruckheimer... I can see that now but, it's unfortunate though.

I agree with you on the movie, standard western movie... I have no hopes for sequel actually. Btw, yesterday I just watched Dawn of The Planet of The Apes, I say quite good & intense story, good acting, a unique things like Apes holding a guns & riding a horse, & I'm liking that one of the ape kills each other. I've seen the Neca toys as well but, I'm not interested on getting them.

Thank you! Yeah, it's been quite a while too for me... I've got the idea after removing Dragon Ranger's Armor. With your variant collections, I think you'd make alot of nice shots there. :) Your review is very well detail & informative.

Ow, I see... But, you still could walk there, if I were I'd fall walking with that legs

I think there's also an acting contest here but, maybe not that hyped as in Dutch... Yeah, mostly the cosplay contest I saw is more like selfie model photography, sometimes they looked great but, sometimes they looked horrible. Depending on the cosplayer themselves I think... Blame for my little knowledge, I'm not a cosplayer nor a cosplayer fan here...

It's not sellers what I'm talking about but, a fraud who claims as their own shots or pretend selling them. I've heard some case of a person using my photos for selling them but, when a buyer wants it they tricked them eventually after giving them the money.

You welcome! Hope for your best then.

Hahaha, you're right...

Oic... Well, take your time there, I'll patiently wait. I have my own life too here that made me, got a limited time to check here.

Now, don't be so down like that, atleast you gave your best there.

Talk to you soon too! & take care!
