Figures (379)

About

I am a long time otaku (I remember reading Animage and desperately waiting for Megazone 23 to be released in Japan), but I resisted moé moé figure collecting for many years. I was finally prompted to start a small collection of "Weekly Dearest My Brother" figures because I found one in Kinokuniya while browsing magazines and it was... CUTE!

Now, I've grown up and admitted that I can be secure in my masculinity and still like cute things - becoming a father of two adorable girls and married to a wife who likes to collect dolls helped!

I mostly collect Nendoroid-Petite (and equivalent) that can be used in miniature gaming, and others if they are "super cute"!

AkibaMelon (2 years ago) #2355609Hi there (^_^)/~~ Thanks for the FR!
I really enjoyed your recent Akihabara travel blog posts!
I was a bit jelly though (#^.^#) Must've been an awesome trip!
Oh, and this in your "About" section: "Now, I've grown up and admitted that I can be secure in my masculinity and still like cute things" made me lol ^_^ Perfect attitude, man!


Thanks for your support, I'll try and keep posting interesting stuff!

I really enjoyed your blog posts as well - particularly your story of your grandmother. You're lucky to have anyone in your family who appreciates your interests like that!

Plus I have to confess I *am* Azone-curious. ;-)

adorablerocket (2 years ago) #2324427Can't wait to see them!
I was just in Akiba yesterday and I had to seriously restrain myself from buying *everything* Girls und Panzer! There's just so much good stuff... there were some seriously amazing Strike Witch 1/8 scale figures as well, a beautiful Hanna figure in particular, but their size and lack of pants made them easier to resist! (^_^);;


Haha yep, I was in Akihabara back in May and wow there were posters everywhere announcing the upcoming Girls Und Panzer movie and merchandise! I must say the Kotobukiya store had very nice displays of all their products, but price wise it was cheaper to buy from the other stores. Mandarake was sooo packed and cramped, I had the great of idea of visiting on a Saturday and having to fight through all the other collectors.! I only bought the more "sensible" strike witches figures as my display is in the living room so can't have anything too raunchy on display :) And you're right they do unfortunetaley take a lot of space for 1/8 scales thanks to their dynamic pantie revealing poses xD

I hope you're enjoying your time in Japan!

adorablerocket (2 years ago) #2324545Ok, order placed on Ami-Ami! Along with my Saori Nendo, I could still pre-order her there unlike Hobby Search. Guess I'm going to have to collect the whole crew now...

Oo yes I'll definitely also be ordering the rest of the Nendoroid crew too as they come out. My order with Akiyama Yukari Nendo just shipped yesterday so hopefully I can put her up next to Miho next week :) Also saw some new photos of their Petite Nendoroid tank on Nekomagic, [ext link ] (theres a few photos near the bottom of the page) It does look very similar to the Pit-Road one but will be somewhat bigger in size, so on the pre-order list it goes!
