February '15 Loot SummaryFebruary '15 Loot Summary

omgusosillyomgusosilly3 years agoLoot
Hellooo MFC. It's time for my monthly loot summary! Let's just get right to it. And again, please ignore all the dog hair.

Another warning, there are 30+ PICTURES IN THIS POST. Please proceed.

OH WAIT FIRST. A story. I'm one of those sad, about-to-be-super-poor souls that got into Kancolle, so I tried my hardest to get these adorable ship girl nendos. In my last loot post, I had found Kaga at a convention, but I was still missing Akagi. How could I keep them apart? I'm not that cold and heartless. It became my mission to attain Akagi and reunite my..toys. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY LIFE? Ahem. Anyway.

On one "cold" February night in California, I recall it was close to 2AM where I was doing my nightly routine of refreshing AmiAmi, Mandarake, and Amazon before finally going to bed. (My shopping obsession is stronk.) LO AND BEHOLD. AKAGI WAS SUDDENLY ONLY $51 USD THROUGH THE AMIAMI AMAZON STORE?! WUT. Of course, this was about one or two? weeks before Kaga and Akagi were suddenly re-released. Kill me now. BUT AT THE TIME, I was super stoked. I thought I'd gotten one of the last few stocks of Akagi on AmiAmi Amazon that they must've found in a dusty corner somewhere, so I immediately paid and happily went to bed. Little did I know that they'd restock the actual AmiAmi store the day after with Akagi and re-release her about a week later. .____. It's okay. I regret nothing. Sorta.

Anyway, so let's actually continue and forget my sob story.

We start with, of course, the boxes.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446815.jpeg

The smaller box contains Akagi via EMS shipping (no choice there). The larger box (also AmiAmi) contains my lack of self-control also via EMS.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446817.jpeg

OH YEY. Apparently, this wouldn't have qualified for reg SAL.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425445270.jpeg

Everything laid out. I don't think anyone will care too much if I didn't zoom in here. DID I MENTION I GOT KONGO ?! (ITEM #192445) Now my Hiei won't be lonely. Huehue. AmiAmi's backorder for her came through. ;D


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446966.jpeg

For your viewing pleasure, ichiban kuji figures. These banpresto figures were all from AmiAmi's pre-owned section in A/B condition. Lisbeth (ITEM #146243) on the left and Silica (ITEM #146244) on the right.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446964.jpeg

Also again, aren't they adorable?! Probably the closest I'll ever get to having SAO nendos of the other characters. Leafa (ITEM #146245) on the left and Yui on the right (ITEM #146248)


Alright..what's next? TOKYO OTAKU MODE! I actually went a little crazy and ordered two shipments. In order to save space, let's pretend they all came in one box.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425445274.jpeg

Yay clear file.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425445276.jpeg

I um..never planned on getting Amatsukaze ITEM #235657, but I wanted free shipping. So it happened. NOW I HAVE TO GET SHIMAKAZE. D: Which I did and she should be here sometime this week. Guys, I might be a hoarder. The other items are unimportant. But..YAY. HONOKA ACRYLIC PASS CASE (ITEM #230156). When would I ever use it? I don't know, BUT LOOK AT IT!


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/omgusosilly1425446968.jpeg

Cute yeah?


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425445278.jpeg

Tokyo Otaku Mode part II. I um. Have a weakness for dogs. If you're not familiar, Hakoinu is a little cardboard dog a little boy made because he couldn't have a dog of his own in his apartment. Ugh. The feels. Anyway, I um..might've snuck in a Nozomi pass case (ITEM #230159) too.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/omgusosilly1425446962.jpeg

YAS. Why Nozomi? More like..why not? Plus, purple is a great color.


Am I done yet? Damn it. Hobby Search and Rightstuf loot.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425449796.jpeg

The top box is Rightstuf containing a Love Live bluray set vol 1. The bottom box is from Hobby Search with..well, you'll see. But I was rather concerned for the Rightstuf box. Thankfully, the product itself was unharmed.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425449794.jpeg

MY LOVE LIVE NENDO PETITS FINALLY ARRIVED! So I finished watching Love Live around January. I didn't realize I could cry so much for an idol anime. AN IDOL. ANIME. WUT. So I decided I needed this nendo petit set, but AmiAmi was sold out! Yeah, that's right: need. I waited around release time and it was still sold out so I hopped onto Hobby Search. I think in my excitement, I forgot Hobbysearch was unreg SAL or EMS only, so this was sent out via SAL. My heart. Oh my heart. I was so relieved when this arrived! NEVER AGAIN. As my luck may have it, AmiAmi still has this product in stock. Hahahaha. Bummer. (www.amiami.com/...)


Anyway, if you'd like to see the unboxing, please look under the cut!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446655.jpeg

And here we have the final product of my hard work! My Rightstuf order also makes an appearance as a backdrop. bahaha The set comes with 10 little figures. One of which is a mystery figure. I've included it in the spoiler if you'd like to know!

O HI MAID KOTORI !



So I also received two boxes today, which I'm debating whether or not I want to post about. They should technically be a part of my March blog post, but I ordered them in February. WELP. It's only 10:30PM PST. I can still ramble some more.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446809.jpeg

Again, we begin with the boxes. My dogs are making a guest appearance. Please welcome Toby (right) and Penny (left). Since I rarely unbox my figures, they'll serve as a size comparison (or so I claim). Let's first open the Amazon.jp box!


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446811.jpeg

Wait. Wut? THIS IS HOW THEY SHIPPED THIS? Okay first. I have to say, I ordered this on Saturday and it arrived on Tuesday. Amazon.jp and DHL, you impress me. But I admit I was shocked that there was so much empty space.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446813.jpeg

The box turned out to be perfectly fine though. I guess I just panicked too quickly. gaspwheezezzzzz

So what did I actually buy?


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446871.jpeg

Only just the most amazing figure EVER (ITEM #236098)(Okay maybe not ever, but it blows my next two figures out of the effing water) I think after seeing this up close and personal, I now have a higher regard for Max Factory. This is easily one of my best figures. I regret nothing AND it was super affordable. $81 USD? Yes plz. I totally prefer this one over the original. Yeah, I went there.

More photos of the box under the cut:

ALMOST DONE. ALMOST.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446905.jpeg

Box. Card. Yus. This was also EMS.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446907.jpeg

Wow. I didn't realize I had a pink theme in this order. Yes. Believe your eyes. These are the IA (ITEM #263234) and Asuna&Yuuki (ITEM #198452) figures that just came out.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446909.jpeg

Let's take a break, shall we? I see a lot of loot posts where people place their cats in the boxes. I threw my dog in. She wasn't very happy with me.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446911.jpeg

Anyway, ONWARD! I originally really liked the design of this figure. I liked how whimsical it looked, but now I'm not too impressed. I think it'd look a bit better with sharper contours, but maybe that's just me. I also wish there were more gradients.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446903.jpeg

This was just a mistake. I love SAO. Look at my collection. But this. I don't know. Maybe I'll come around? Or maybe I might color Asuna's BLONDE HAIR in with an orange sharpie. I joke. This is the first and last Penguin Parade figure I'll ever buy. (Petanko doesn't count). Despite the giraffe neck, I still invested in this and they decided to make Asuna blonde. Never again. No thank you. I'm not even going to look at those Kancolle Penguin Parade figures.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1425446960.jpeg

And just for fun. A size comparison of these three boxes! Compared to the other two, that Samurai figure is just AHHHH-Mazing.


And now..I'M DONE. I'M FREE. Time to sleep. zzz I'm never doing this on a weekday again.

Until next month! Thanks for reading. ;D

omgusosilly (3 years ago) #2761617That's good to know! I'll definitely keep that in mind if I order them again. Yeah, I was debating painting it over myself. I just might someday if I get super super bored.
They are my primary store so I am very familiar with all their services.
If you do decide to paint over it, I recommend Mr. Color or Tamiya acrylics, by the way. And you'll have better results if you slightly sand the areas you're going to paint first, to roughen the surface which allows the paint to adhere more securely.

Ricotta (3 years ago) #2761275>why Nozomi?
Because Nozomi is best girl, obviously ;D
Also, I love your dogs, they are so cute!
hahaha she's definitely one of my favorites for me!

CrimsonPumpkin (3 years ago) #2761294This is an amazing loot!! O_O I also think that the Samurai Student Style figure is amazing, those details are gorgeous and the figure itself is amazing to look at :)
Regarding Kaga and Akagi, :( I get you but in my case I managed to control myself. I was really sad cos when I started collecting nendoroids last year, I missed my chance with these cuties. I was always checking AmiAmi pre-owned section but I wanted both at the same time and it was awful cos when I saw Akagi in stock I didn't have the money..dammit. Then, the most amazing thing happened, Akagi and Kaga re-release. So don't worry about this, the most important thing is that you have them now ^^ we cannot expect if a figure will have a re-release or not. Murphy's law right?
The loot is completely amazing and I can tell you're super happy with it :D
By the way, we don't just place our cats inside boxes they do it themselves, cats adore boxes and they think of them as brand new toys XD, so I found it hilarious when you said "I threw my dog in" still, your dogs are sooooooo damn cute >_< may I ask which breed of dog is Penny? She's friggin' adorable!
yes! You're right. I should focus on the fact that I have them and now they're together. :) Cats are so silly! I wonder why they like being in little enclosed spaces. Penny hopped out the moment I put her in. I think Toby would've bit me. Lol Penny is a schipperke and chihuahua mix! They're both rescue dogs. :)

Moro (3 years ago) #2761541Just so you know, Hobby Search does offer registered SAL. You just have to ask them for it in the notes field and they will happily provide it to you.
That's a lot of stuff! That Katanoko Samurai figure has such lovely vibrant colors but it's a real shame the Asuna figure turned out so "off." But it would actually not be that hard to fix her hair if you patiently mix the right color and properly mask off the rest of the figure to avoid getting the paint places it shouldn't be.

Hakoinu is totally cute! I totally want the wooden block figure on otakumode. ahahaha

kawaii-lurve (3 years ago) #2760579If you think that your Amazon Japan's packaging is bad, check out mine: PICTURE #1221177
Anyway, nice loot! I wanted to get the Asuna and Yui figure but decided to see the released figure first. That hair and neck..! Yui looks cute though!
Oh my goodness. I think I remember looking at your loot post when it came out. At least our purchases came home safely. @__@

Limited (3 years ago) #2760598Heh, I remember seeing those SAO Ichibans in AmiAmi's used section, and here they are again.
Also one doesn't place a cat in a box, because they already place themselves in any box that's laying around. =P
You're right! Shows how much I know about cats. lol

Tomoe (3 years ago) #2760648WOOW certainly an awesome loot :3c bahaha Thank you!

bertychen (3 years ago) #2760681awesome loot!
i'm still waiting for my LL petit to arrive, hopefully with the new amiami card, they're so cute!
I had a really hard time putting the hair attachments in. I was afraid I'd break their heads. @__@ I hope you have better luck than I did.


allenia (3 years ago) #2760926Omg. I am actually more tempted to just cuddle with your dog then looking at your figure. //maybe it's just me.// but those cute little fluff!!!
You seem to have bought a lot this time hahaha makes me wonder about how your wallet is doing. 8'D
I totes don't blame you. My dogs are adorable. My wallet on the other hand..still hanging in there. March is going to be a fun month too.

pacificrimming (3 years ago) #2761045lucky duck! this was a nice loot. View spoilerHide spoileri totally want that asuna and yui figure still OTL I'm sure the figure will hit the bargain bin like everyone says! Although, I feel like Penguin Parade doesn't mass produce very much of their items. I hunted a cup for like 2 weeks relentlessly around its release date before I finally found it.
