Hello, everyone!

Welcome to my personal AmiAmi July haul! I have a second package still making it's way to me, so until then, let's enjoy the contents of package number one!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648156.jpeg

There it is! Fresh from my front door to boot ^w^ (Please forgive the atrocious quality of my pictures, I'm hoping to have a new camera ASAP :<)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648150.jpeg

Opening it up, I noticed we got a new AmiAmi slip <3 aaaaaah girls in yukata- is there anything better? Don't they just make you think of summer? Aaaaaah I want to dress up and go to festivals too~

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648148.jpeg

Ah! The meat and potato's, so to speak. Here are the items I'd bought earlier in the month- a Leafa earphone jack figure, a Suguha 1/8 scale figure, and a set of trading figures from the new Sailor Moon Crystal series :D

So lets take a look at them, shall we? :)

Let's start with Leafa~

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406662081.jpeg

Front of her box. Simple enough- the colours reflect Leafa's character, and they have the series name clearly printed along the top. Nothing outstanding here, folks~

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406662079.jpeg

The back of her packaging. A bunch of legal jargin that I can not understand because I'm extremely poor at japanese :) It has a nice seal of approval in the top right corner.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/DarkNeo1406662077.jpeg

Now- the actual figure. I was so excited at the prospect of this item- having a waifu sitting on top of my phone? How adorable is that? The quality was nice, and she certainly is cute- but when you put her to practical use, it drove me insane. She won't stay in the headphone jack :( It's okay as long as you don't put your phone down. Any pressure on the figure causes it to come loose from the jack.

I wouldn't reccomend her if you want something that will stay, but it's still a fun novelty when I'm at home in my room and engaging in text festing ^w^ All in all, a cute, slightly impractical figure.

Next- Kirigaya Suguha!

There is her box :D The first thing you'll notice is that it is pretty freaking big for the figure it's housing. You could probably put two additional Sugu's in there comfortably~ The only thought I could have that it's so big is the base. It itself is much too big, so the box had to be bigger to make up for it.

I like the colours they chose for her box as well :) While green is Leafa's colour, red is most defiantly Suguha's. I also like the flower print blossoming all over :) There are plenty of windows to let light into the box, and they are creatively placed like hexagons.

Now lets get this cutie out of her box!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/DarkNeo1406661915.jpeg

Aaaaah Sugu in just a shirt and underwear :) Now to avoid a full blown review of her, I'll just point out a few things. The first thing I mentioned earlier- her base. It's a big, black circle :( Like it's waiting to swallow her up or something. It really doesn't add anything to the figure, and makes her take up more space on my display then I'd prefer.

Next is something that isn't very clear in my photo's, but the damn colouring refused to show up properly on my stupid camera phone (uuuuuugh) but it's the shading on her legs and buttocks. It's this harsh, red tone that is kinda just... splotched on. It's not a nice gradient, and it detracts from my enjoyment just a bit :(

On the flip side, her sculpt and pose is adorable, and I just love the pattern on her underwear- wait... I haven't shown you her panties yet?

I'm so sorry! Here, please gander to your heart's content ^v^

Though you can see a bit of shotty paint work on her underwear. She certainly has her flaws, but none of them make me regret having her in my collection :)

Now, finally, the last item in my haul- the Sailor Moon Crystal trading figures~ I ended up with the V2 editions of the characters, which made me really happy~ (all those winks... too cute.)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406661779.jpeg

This is the box :) It gives your a preview of the available characters in the box: Sailor Saturn, Sailor Pluto, Sailor Moon, Sailor Chibi Moon, Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune.

So let's open them up, shall we?

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648372.jpeg

There we go~

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648368.jpeg

This is the box each figure comes in.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648374.jpeg

They come in standard trading figure packaging. Each piece is segmented in a large plastic bag. This one happens to be Sailor Saturn~ Let's put her together.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648380.jpeg

There- finished. Isn't she just precious? Now, there is something remarkable about this set of figures that I was thoroughly impressed with-

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648364.jpeg

Each character base has the individual characters planet sign on it. This one happens to be Pluto's, and it was quite the pleasant surprise!

Speaking of Pluto...

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648376.jpeg

She is just as cute, isn't see? Each character was of nicer quality then I was expecting, and it was a lot of fun unboxing each one~

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406661787.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648366.jpeg

There they all are~ Neptune is especially adorable... (I know, picking favourites isn't fair, is it?) In all honesty, they are all superb, and each one impressed me ^w^ Sailor Chibi Moon even comes with a Luna Ball~ which was another plus~

Fewf! We made it. What a long drawn out haul post hahaha. Hopefully I didn't bore you all to death, and you made it to the end!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/DarkNeo1406648152.jpeg

Thank everyone for reading my post, and look forward to part two!

I'll see you then~

alyssajayne (4 years ago) #2285413I wanted to keep the new AmiAmi slip and frame it (along with the previous one) but it got ruined when I opened my box :( the letter opener I used slipped through the tape too hard and because the slip was directly under the top of the box (my others were all under the protective paper) it got cut down the middle. Worst!

Oh no! That happened to me when I first ordered from AmiAmi and didn't realize there was a slip inside hahaha. Well hopefully you can get another one from your next shipment~ it really is a lovely picture ^.^

abi (4 years ago) #2284995Lovely review! I got that same set! =D those sailor chibis are great

Aren't they just? I was really blown away with how cute they were/ their quality. They were only 2,500 yen, so I wasn't expecting a lot~ I'm looking into getting the first set of Sailor Scouts <3

ComplexCRUSH (4 years ago) #2282939Sugu! So cute! Once I stop meandering in denial and realize that I'm going to need a whole detolf for SAO figures one day, I'll probably be getting her *^*

Ahahaha you know it'll happen ^.< Half of it would be dedicated to Asuna ^w^ I mentioned getting a detolf to my grandparents ad they just stared blankly at me eheheheheh.

kirchu (4 years ago) #2283030Yay, SAO items!
Thanks for the heads up about the headphone jacks. I was almost about to get them, but I got the Petanko ones from an anime convention instead. I bought four of the Petanko ones. XD
Are you planning to get other SAO figures, too? o.o
Cute Sailor chibis! ^-^
