* * * DECEMBER LOOT!!! * * *
also known as my first loot blog post

Well, hello everyone, December came and it is already leaving, New Year will soon come, and my long awaited packages finally came!!! :D With 7 Nendoroids that came this month I think this is the right time to make loot blog. I hope you will enjoy it. I will try to show you every Nendoroid that I got, describe them a little. But, you know how this little guys are, they are fun and cute and love to run around the room hoping to find some of their old friends, and I tried to picture those fun moments too so this blog will be very picture heavy. :)

* * * * *

Keep in mind that I don't have great camera or photography skills, but I hope that i will grow better with practice, so I hope that you won't be annoyed too much with low quality of my pictures. I tried to be creative and I hope that in the future my pictures will be more and more interesting.

* * * * *

Now, let's take a look at the things that I got this month:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177208.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177207.jpeg

They are all Nendoroids, from left to right: Suigintou ITEM #198399 , Stocking ITEM #58025 , Satsuki ITEM #198367 , Venera ITEM #206809 , Tsukiko ITEM #143935, Madoka Maiko ver. ITEM #158023 and Snow Miku 2013 ITEM #107714 .
Satsuki, Venera and Suigintou are recently released figures and I preordered them from some local sellers, and the rest of them were my little grails, since they were on my wish list even before I started collecting. So I finally got myself an internet debit card and started shopping for my long wished cuties. :3 I ordered them in the end of October/ beginning of November, and they were soooo long on the road, traveling, and I started panicking and even wrote blog asking for your advice. You helped me to calm a bit, thank you sooo much....and now they are finally here!

So...that's how I got 7 Nendos in only one month, I remember looking at loot posts of other users when I started collecing and thinkng ''Yeah, I would be happy if I have 6-7 Nendos alltogether, but now I already have 19 of them and I am making my own loot post. xD Well, I will probably have similar loot in February and after that I am planning to pause a little with collecting, until I finnish university and find my own apartment so I can have enough room for these cuties.

I'm sorry for writing nonsence for so long, let's start with introducing each Nendo of this lovely group! ;)

* * * * *

* * * Snow Miku 2013. * * *

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177213.jpeg

Is there anything to say about this beauty except that she is truly one of the most beautifull and cute things that I ever put my hands on. :D I got her from Mandarake, for 7 000 yen (plus 2 400 yen shipping, she is quite heavy) and she is my most expensive figure, but she was worth it! I could stare at her for hours and not get bored.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177327.jpeg

But beauty comes with the price. Her white kimono is very delicate and you have to be very careful when you're posing her because her green hair will stain kimono very easy. Also, her siting pose isn't very stabile and she can fall if you pose her without support from her arms You have to push her head down as far as you can so it can keep balance. :D

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177214.jpeg

* * * Madoka Meiko ver. * * *

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177215.jpeg

I haven't watched Madoka Magica until this October, but I knew for them and liked their costume desings and darknes that surronded Homura. But after watching the show I also fell in love with Madoka's character and I had to have her Nendoroid. Also, since I was getting Snow Miku, and since this Madoka was in komono and had sitting parts as well, I had to order her so she can keep Miku company, and remind me with her calm expression that I need to keep my cool sometimes. :D

I got her from Jungle for 5 400 yen. :)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177216.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177217.jpeg

She is great Nendoroid, I didn't have any issues with her, she is easy to pose, has great details, her faces are tooo cute and give out some serene feeling. You can see that she and Snow Miku are getting along really well, and that they are looking great together. :D

* * * * *

* * * Kiryuuin Satsuki * * *

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177218.jpeg

With this girl my Kill la Kill Nendoroid collection is complete! :) I was little dissapointed when she was previewed with lack of accessories (I would love gentle smiling faceplate or hands for holding tea instead of this big base), but let me tell you, Satsuki has great details and looks perfect. I tried to pose her with tea hand parts from Shinku, she looks little awkward, but it isn't so bad. :D It is hard to pose her when you don't have arm parts that you need. xD

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177320.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/02/1159964.jpeg

Of course, I didn't have to wait too long before her friends found her... (well, it seems like Ryuko still wants to finish some unresolved business with Satuski, but that doesn't mean that Mako isn't ready to give warm jumping hug anytime! ;) )

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177221.jpeg

* * * * *

* * * Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi * * *

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177222.jpeg

OMG, this, I, just, can't.....she is just toooo cute for me! :D I wanted her for so long, and waited for her....I just can't believe she is finally mine. Everytime that I look at her I start to melt and make some squeeeling noises. :3

I was looking for her for a long time, she is available at ebay but I didn't want to risk so finally I found her on MFC's partner store IxuDeviance for 30 and something euros. :D This store is great, they even waited for my payment a little longer because I had some problems with my card, I highly recommend it. :D

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177328.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177226.jpeg

Isn't she the cutest thing ever?! :3 Anyway, she her skirt is a little softer then the rest of her body so you can easily pose her like she is sitting, you will see that in a minute. :D It can be a little difficult to put her hands right when she is lifting her skirt, but you need to be patient and to be sure you rotated them enough so that the both hands can reach and hold skirt. ;)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177250.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177251.jpeg

I don't know what happened to me since I never liked Nekomimi characters, but Tsubasa (who is one of my favorite characters ever) and Tsukiko melted my heart with those cat ears, so I had to have them both so they can have some fun together. Well, we all know how strict to rules Tsubasa is, so it is no wonder that she is scolding Tsukiko for lifting her skirt. But as soon as she noticed some cats even Tsubasa forgot Tsukiko's indecent pose and started to play. :D

* * * * *

* * * Anarchy Stocking * * *

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177228.jpeg

My favorite anime character of all time! :D I wanted this Nenoroid even before I knew what Nendoroids are, it was thanks to this show that I started looking for anime figures and found out this wonderfull hobby. So, the one that started it all is finally here. :D

I got her from Mandarake for 2 800 yen. :) There was also Panty available, but I don't like her Nendoroid form so much so I had to pass on her, I hope that Stocking will find company with some of Nendoroids that I already have.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177329.jpeg

She is so cute when she is siting so I had to photograph her like that. :3
Since she was in her box for so long, she had gray sticky layer of plasticizer on her. I washed her with mild soap and she is like new now! :D

My hopes came true and Tsukiko and Stocking became friends. They look great together. :3

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177241.jpeg

Of course, since both of them have big love for food (sweets) small quarrels about sharing food are unavoidable. xD

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177242.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177243.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177244.jpeg

Stocking is such a cheapskate. xD

* * * * *

* * * Suigintou * * *

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177260.jpeg

I had my dark days when I adored everything that had gothic style. xD One of the first gothic anime characters I found out about was Suigintou, and I fell in love with her design. Not long after that I found out about Shinku (omg, I love her curly pigtails, they are my soft spot), and when I read about their story, that they are alive dolls (I love dolls and love all stories that involve living toys, because I love to consider my toys/figures as separate characters who have their own story) I can't describe how amazed I was! :D So, when I started collecting Shinku was one of my first figures, and when I found out about Suigintou's prototype...I...flipped out. xD I still remember the moment that they showed her colored prototype on Kahotan's station, a was jumping on my chair and screaming like a maniac... xD I don't always have reactions like that...but Suigintou is something special. ;)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177330.jpeg

She is perfect, her details, ruffles and layers of dress, posing of her crossed arms, the way her translucent wings look when they are attached, even her chibi face look way better live than in promo photos. She is cute, and beatiful and classy and a little evil at the same time. She is perfect. :3

I have seen that some people have problems with attaching the wings, it took a little more time because these are round joints, but if you have patience you will make it! :) The key is to make small round moves while you are pushing joint inside the hole in the wing or in her hair. :D

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177269.jpeg

As I already mentioned, Suigintou already had one of her friends in my collection and she didn't waste time...she found Shinku right after I freed her from the box.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177270.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177271.jpeg

Shinku was sleeping peacefully but you know Suiginou, she just couldn'd leave her alone and HAD to wake her up (I tried to stop her, I swear).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177272.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177273.jpeg

When Shinku found out who woke her up, she scolded Suigintou, but she just wouldn't listen to anyone...

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177274.jpeg

So...the only option angry Shinku had was to attack her... You can see that Suigintou wasn't expecting that extreme reaction. xD Well, I told her not to wake up Shinku, but who in this world listens to me?!

* * * * *

And last but not the least...

* * * Venera * * *

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177252.jpeg

Venera sama is the character that I found out about through this Nendoroid. When I saw her on news from Wonder Festival her interesting design and colors and the fact that she is holding plush toy (my very big soft spot) instantly caught my eye. :D I started to google about her and anime that she appeared in, fell in love with character design from that anime (and fact that Zvezda on Serbian means star only got my love for her to grow). :) And I ended up pre-ordering her. Even though I was hoping for her to have more arms pieces or open hands (that would be very useful) or to have only one faceplate without the mask (her eyes are truly gorgeous) she is still great Nendoroid.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177331.jpeg

She is one of the best sculpted Nendoroids (belly and back are her stongest points) that I have, all of her three faces are cute and inovative, she has added joints for her outfit and her high heels are out of this world! :3 Her big arm can be a little difficult to pose, but i wasn't planning to use it anyway so that isn't big deal for me, although it can be very useful if you are making some action or funny scenes. ;)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177256.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177257.jpeg

Since both Venera and Stocking have big love for stuffed animals there were some quarrels about who will have which toy (Stocking is the greedy one, she doesn't want to give her toy but doesn't mind taking others' possessions).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177258.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2014/12/22/1177259.jpeg

And when two ambitios warriors start quarrel it will grow in BIG fight in no time... xD

* * * * *

Thank you for your time! :) I hope that this was interesting to you and that wasn't too much boring. :D

Wish you all the best! Any comments, critiques, suggestions is highly appreciated and will make me very happy! Love you all! :*

Yes, I'm going to have to... And since I read this blog, I started reading HenNeko out of interest in Tsukiko... now I love it and have to buy her too!!
mentalka5 years ago#2549019Oh. sweetie, your comment just made my day! I'm glad that this made you happy. I also like to read stories about figures being posed and ''living'' their lives, and I am really glad that someone else loved seeing that part of this blog. :D
That's great, Shinku is a such a lady so she doesn't make friends very easily with other ''ordinary'' Nendos, so it's a great thing that you got Suigintou to keep her company. ;) How do you like those two Nendos? :D
Get that Snow Miku...get her! :D She is the most beautiful Nendo ever! And she comes with sooo many things, so she really is worth the extra money. :)

aweofshe5 years ago#2549634omg. I was wondering if Shinku's tea cup could be combined with Satsuki! Kinda awkward looking, haha. The teacup search continues...I made a list of all the nendos that have tea cups hoping they would match Satsuki. x.x The Suigintou nendo is also on my wishlist but I have not seen Rozen Maiden so I am trying to resist buying her.
But wow, lots of loot! xD I have 3 of those nendos! I received my own 2013 Snow Miku just last month. She really is lovely, though I don't have anywhere to pose her yet so she's still in her box. >.< Still waiting for Maiko Madoka to come in my December Amiami order & Amazon JP is shipping Satsuki~
Love your pics! It's always great to read fun & creative loot posts. :)


Well, I think that the problem isn't in Shinku's tea cup hands, but in position of Satsuki's arms. It will look this awkward with any tea cup hands, because she doesn't have any arms that are made for holding something near in front of her body (her arms are only made to hold sword in one side half-lifted, and to hold sword far in front of her)... :/ So..we are doomed with this pose anyway... xD

Oh, I hope you will soon have place to display Miku and Madoka (when she arrive to you) because it is shame to keep those beauties in their boxes. :) I also have problem with space so part on my collection is always packed, and it breaks my heart a little everyday. :(

Thanks for kind words, I'm glad that you enjoyed it! :3

ZoroZoldyck5 years ago#2546827thanks for the answer!
You can see which nendo I ordered on my profile since I can't link it properly now cuz I'm on my phone
anyway, I honestly didnt know you could buy from manda with a debit card! But it makes sense since it's by PayPal,
I'm look into it and hopefully finally be able to order with ease and I won't have to be scared of bootleg items anymore.
And just to make sure, for debit cards you have to put money in them and then buy right? Unlike credit cards


Yes, you have to put money on debit cards, so they are very safe for using, if you don't have money you can't buy things and go to debt. :D
There is always possibility that you will get a bootleg but it is highly unlikely with famous shops. Everything that I bought from Mandarake and Jungle came in perfect condition, so you shouldn't worry about it. ;)
I hope that you will get your card and PayPal account soon, and that you will start shopping whatever you like. :D

arianehk5 years ago#2544826madoka and miku looks really nice together @_@
maybe I should start looking for that madoka nendo too lol


They are precious when they are together, and I am really happy to see that others think that too. :3 I love to give people new ideas for finding a beauty in combining things. :D You should definitely start looking for her, you won't be disappointed, trust me! ;)

damedanbo5 years ago#2547293This makes me so happy to read. I love seeing so many new figures being posed and making friends... :P
I also recently got Suigintou to keep my Shinku company! I wish she had a case too so I could make them both just sleep. And Miku and Madoka look so sweet together too! Just seeing her makes me want Snow Miku 2013 even more...

CrimsonPumpkin5 years ago#2548016Completely jealous of your loot XD especially when I'm in love with nendos lol. It was a great post and now I really want to get my hands on Madoka Maiko!! She's definitely adorable! Gotta love the pics of Suigintou and Shinku!!!

Don't be jealous, you'll have loot like that in no time... Nendos are consumig your heart and wallet, one day you will just wake up with nine boxes next to you, waiting for you to release those little cuties out, and you just won't be able to decide who to release first. :D Enjoy while you're still going slow. ;)
Thanks I'm glad that you liked the post. :D I have sooo many ideas for playing with them and photograhing them but I don't have enough time... When I see that people like this it motivates to find more time for things like this. :D
Get Madoka, she will be happy to keep you company. :3 Oh,yeah Shinku and Suigintou are the most interesting duo for photographing. I have sooo many ideas for their photoshoot... xD

mentalka5 years ago#2541850Thank you! :3 I'm glad that you liked it. Oh,be careful of ordering Nendoroids, they have this nasty habit of stealing and corupting your heart completely. :D Before you know it, you will have your own Nendo-army. ;) Which one have ordered? :D
It is a Visa card, and I opened PayPal account with it as soon as got the card. So I am yet to have some problems with payment because most of online shops support and even recommend paying with PayPal. :)
I shopped on AmiAmi, Mandarake, Jungle and IxuDeviance, but I think that you shouldn't have any problems buying on most of the sites with PayPal. :D
It didn't need any special qualifications for this card in my bank, just to be over 18 years old, but I don't know how it may be in your country and what offers do you have. :D It costed me something like 2 euros for one year membership. :)

thanks for the answer!

ZoroZoldyck5 years ago#2540971Awesome loot! I love it
I have just ordered a nendo too :D
But If I may ask, you said you just got yourself a debit card and I know some shops don't use debit cards right? from which sites are you shopping? I've been wanting to make my own and if I do that I could be more independent and buy much more easily
My only questions are is it a Visa card? Which sites can you use? And how much it did cost or are there certain qualifications that I must have?
Thanks in advance!
