Megaten, Persona, Valkyrie Profile HaulMegaten, Persona, Valkyrie Profile Haul

It's time for more gods and demons!

After about a month since my last haul, my fourth shipment from Japan finally arrived! Gotta hand it to me, though. I ordered significantly less items compared to my previous shipments. :)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440159508.jpeg

As with all of the shipments I have received, all my items came in very secure packaging, with lots of bubble wrap. And as the title states, expect mostly stuff from Shin Megami Tensei, Persona, and Valkyrie Profile. Plus, more.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440161709.jpeg

Let's start with the Persona items.

All I got that is from that SMT spinoff is a set of 1/8 prize figures by HappyKuji. Specifically, I got two duplicate figures of Yu Narukami (ITEM #124246) and one of Naoto Shirogane (ITEM #124248).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440160880.jpeg

Actually, I already acquired both figures from my last order. The only reason why I bought these three figures is a sad confession. Whenever I see auctions where time is already running out, and the price of the auctioned item is less than what I think it's worth, I would instantly bid on it continuously until it has reached a high enough amount. Half of the time, someone else wins the auction for the item, which is fine by all means. But sometimes, I end up with the items. I'm fine with that. At the least, I helped someone with a good sale. But the trouble is, I don't know where to put all these duplicate stuff. :/

Anyway, the next item is from Devil Survivor 2. I've always wanted Io Nitta, but I got Airi Ban (ITEM #153052) instead.

The figure is really nice. It's a 1/8, so it would look okay with my other stuff. But it's the only item I have from DeSu, so she looks a little out-of-place.

Now let's move to the Shin Megami Tensei items.

The first two items, like the Persona figures, are duplicates which I got simply by trying to help. The first one is Digital Devil Apocalypse (ITEM #77834).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440159708.jpeg

And the other is the first book in the three-set Kazuma Kaneko Graphics (ITEM #77832).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440159633.jpeg

Both books are highly commendable as both feature top-tier artworks done by master demon designer, Kazuma Kaneko.

Next is the Sound and Art Collection taken from the Japanese premium release of Shin Megami Tensei IV (ITEM #152501).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440160390.jpeg

I haven't opened this one since it's still in shrink wrap, but I've already seen what's inside from online sources. Even now, I'm still unsure about non-Kaneko designs...

Like the previous item, Maria (ITEM #326992) is a part of the Deluxe Edition of Shin Megami Tensei NINE.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440161158.jpeg

I would try to go for the complete edition, but it's just too rare. Plus, Maria is the only item I want from the set.

Last of the SMT items is a wave of one coin figures by Kotobukiya. The set includes Metatron (ITEM #17007), Uriel (ITEM #17009), Vouivre (ITEM #17010), Alice (ITEM #7941), Raja Naga (ITEM #17011), Ghoul and Gaki (ITEM #17012), and the secret figure, Matador (ITEM #17013).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440161292.jpeg

I'm really excited about this set since it's a goal of mine to complete the Kotobukiya one coin figure demon line. That's two down, and four to go. Whew! These can get really expensive! The best figures from this set are Matador, Uriel, Ghoul and Gaki, and of course, the big bad-ass Transformer from heaven, Metatron.

On to Valkyrie Profile, my noble einherjar!

I got a duplicate Silmeria (ITEM #3355).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440160750.jpeg

I plan to keep this because I already removed my first Silmeria from her packaging. I really hate card and blister packaging...

Next is the wonderful Valkyrie Profile Material Collection (ITEM #44154).

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440160577.jpeg

This is perhaps the biggest art book I have ever seen! And it's apt since the glorious artwork of Valkyrie Profile deserves an equally glorious book, and here it is! Every fan should get this if possible.

The last item I have from VP is a feather necklace, which cannot be found in the MFC database.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440160651.jpeg

This necklace is an exclusive item if you pre-ordered Valkyrie Profile for the PlayStation waaaay back in Japan. I would want to do my part by adding it into the database, but MFC recently got icky when it comes to unofficial sources. And old stuff tends to be absent from the Internet. :/

Finally, save the biggest for last! Get ready for a really rare resin statue of a Chiroptera from Blood: The Last Vampire (ITEM #361803)!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Kimm134Saya1440161397.jpeg

I can't find much information about it online. All I know is that this is really elusive. There is also a resin Saya figure that was released at the same time as this monster. This figure is really delicate and fragile. And I wouldn't want to have its beautiful gore damaged.

That's all, folks!

Here's a photo of all the items from this haul:

I can't put a finger on which is the single most awesome item in this set. Is it the Valkyrie Profile Material Collection? Or is it the Chiropteran figure? Perhaps it's the small Maria figure? Let me know in the comment section below!

Riesz (3 years ago) #3365109OMG I'm super jealous of that VP necklace!! Hehe I also removed my Silmeria from her packing, though I tried to preserve the blister and card as best as I could. I'd like to buy a second one someday too, last I checked there were a few available on Yahoo Japan Auctions. Nice loot!

Don't you just hate how it's packed? I tried my best to take her out using a cutter, but you can still see signs of struggle in the card.

katsudon (3 years ago) #3364905It's the Valkyrie Profile Material Collection, obviously! Such a great game, shame we're never getting a third one though. It pleases me that Tri-Ace's new JPRG for the Vita uses the same combat system however...
Awesome loot!


There's Covenant of the Plume for DS, but I'm not a fan of it. :/ I still hope they make Valkyrie Profile: Hrist, though.
