AmiAmi Pre-Owned Grab Box for Boys S

tharglettharglet7 months agoLoot
So... some time ago I found about the random loot boxes AmiAmi did, mostly through this site. A month ago, I finally found one and ordered it. And waited. Then waited some more. Finally, 25(!) days later, it turned up!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942715.jpeg

And here it is!

So, without further ado, here's what I got.

Loot layers:

Loot layer 0:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942657.jpeg
The card was on top of the flaps, not seen that before.

Loot layer 1:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942659.jpeg
Some clear files.

Loot layer 2:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942661.jpeg
Some small bits n' pieces

Loot layer 3:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942663.jpeg
Some larger pieces, mostly hanging items and a fan

Loot layer 4:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942665.jpeg
Some bigger stuff, blind boxes in abundance.

Unboxing the blind boxes:

Evangelion:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942717.jpeg
I have a "thing" for the Evangelion characters, so this one was first. I got Asuka, happy with that. This is ITEM #79636

Guilty Gear/Queen's Gate:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942721.jpeg
Got a character called Dizzy. Not familiar with most of the characters in this, but I like the design of this one.

Macross Frontier:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942776.jpeg
Got Sheryl Nome. Was mildly hoping for Ranka Lee, but happy with this one.

Gundam SEED:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942778.jpeg
No familiarity with Gundam. Looking at the back of the box, I would have preferred one of the other ones, on looks alone.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nahona:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942784.jpeg
Another series I know exists, but not familiar with. Would have preferred Fate Tetrossa, or Nahona herself, as I just like the character's designs

Idolmaster Cinderella Girls:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942780.jpeg
Only one or two of the series 2 are in the db, and not this one. She is Chieri Ogata (thanks klala)

The Blue Bubble Wrap:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942782.jpeg
Had no idea who this was at this stage. No card either!

Cake!:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491942719.jpeg
Not technically blind, but I couldn't see what it was fully until I unbundled it. An iiinteresting sort of thing!


The following sections are closeups of the items. Categorised for your convenience!

Figures:
View spoilerHide spoiler
Asuka Langley:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943114.jpeg
Probably my favourite item in the box, though the stand that was designed to hold her middle was terrible, but she stands up fine without it. If she does get a leaning issue, I've got some clear grip stands which would be far better. This is ITEM #79636

Sonsaku Hakufu:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943159.jpeg
A variant of ITEM #930, that doesn't appear to be in the db, and not many pics of it! Found out who she was via the copyright info on the base.

Ayase Eli:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943116.jpeg
Had the fun of watching this thing wobble whilst I unboxed everything else! Not watched Love Live, so have no attachment to the character. Debating whether to put this on my work desk or attempt to sell it. Is ITEM #374235

Cagalli Yula Athha:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943118.jpeg
This is ITEM #14537. Was a right arse to get on the base as the legs were bent in too much, and not the greatest paint job. Will probably end up on a random shelf.

Dizzy:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943120.jpeg
ITEM #84626. I like the design of this character. Will probably nestle with some other petit figures I got recently.

Shamal:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943122.jpeg
ITEM #129209. No familiarity with this character. Getting these things onto the base is a pain! The pegs on the base don't really do the jobs pegs are supposed to do, and she fell apart once ><. Got there in the end though.

Sheryl Nome:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943161.jpeg
ITEM #266944. Prone to some of the issues of the above figure, but is a character I'm mildly more interested in.


Hanged up:

Titus Alexius:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943191.jpeg
ITEM #449536. My favourite of the hanged up items I got. No familiarity with the character, but love the design, and this thing is big! The stand also makes it easy to display.

Mikasa Ackerman:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943163.jpeg
Is by the same manufacturer as ITEM #184159, and is the picture in that listing. Not sure what's up with that. I like Attack on Titan, so this one will be displayed somewhere.

Is the Order a Rabbit?:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943165.jpeg
Not familiar with this anime, seen it mentioned here. This one will possibly go to the Drawer of Purgatory. Depends how much space I'll end up giving myself for hanging items - got an idea of where I'm going to hang stuff, but not sure how it will work out. Does not appear to be in the db (there is a similar one, but not this one).

Vocaloid:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943167.jpeg
Listed as two items: ITEM #133279 and ITEM #133280. Kinda like these more than most pixel-style keyrings/hangars I've seen so will probably display these.

Takanya:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943189.jpeg
Not familiar with this character, but I like her design. She will be displayed somewhere :). ITEM #100121

Touwa Erio & Chieri Ogata:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943193.jpeg
Bit of a crap photo, but I like both of these. Will be displayed in my collection. Touwa is at ITEM #182188.

Yuzuha:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943195.jpeg
From a VN called Utawarerumono. Never heard of it myself. Currently hanging in my trial spot for hanged-up items. I like the colours on this, and will be displaying it. None of this series of keyrings seems to be in the db.


Clear files:
View spoilerHide spoiler
Don't know anything about this franchise, but some of these clear files do make me wish I actually had paper to file. Some of sides are quite nicely designed. The pictures are of one side of the files, and the 2nd I've flipped them over in-place.

Misc:

Sailor Moon cake:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943218.jpeg
ITEM #316534. I bet the vast majority of the people who owned this have done so through an AmiAmi grab box! Decided to put my current age on the cake. Will go somewhere in my collection for people to wtf at.

Black Rock Shooter fan:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943212.jpeg
Initially chucked this item aside, due to it being a fan. Opened it up at the end, and was pleasantly surprised. May have to find somewhere for it. Looks like it may have been an AmiAmi item, as I saw an AmiAmi fan in another loot post with the same fan "spokes" design.

Idolm@aster "carddass" cards:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943214.jpeg
Ooh, shiny! Not quite sure what I'll do with these, but I do like shiny things. That name wouldn't fly too well in an English-speaking country though.

Futari Wa Precure art board:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943216.jpeg
It's OK. Some of the other designs looked more detailed, and I may have preferred those. Not decided what I'm going to do with it.

Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de badges:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/tharglet1491943210.jpeg
Might put the character badges somewhere, I like the middle one. Not got much to say about these, lol.


Aand so... there we have it. Kinda 50-50 on what I got. Seemed a bit heavy on the Idolmaster stuff, but I guess it is a popular thing. Kind of a shame the seeming "key" item - the bobblehead - isn't something I'm really into. Probably got my money's worth, I'll see how I feel in a few days. Will probably get another mystery box in the future, but not rushing to go get one now.

If there's anything that's incorrect, or if I've missed items in the DB, feel free to reply to this post and I'll edit it to include the links/info. I may add some of the missing items to the db if I get the arsedness to do so :).

Hope you enjoyed this tour! What item was your favourite?

Dizzy's from a fighting game franchise called Guilty Gear. Might not be your jam (super niche genre and all), but the vast majority of the characters have pretty amazing designs and the soundtrack is dope.

feuilgarde (7 months ago) #19751302Oh wow, love the Asuka and the Sheryl (especially since I haven't seen the former before)!! <3 <3

Out of the two Asukas listed on MFC, I much prefer the colour scheme of the one I got, so happy about that.
Got a gothic Rei coming soon(tm) in the post, so I might display the two together, as they're the same colour scheme.

confuzedanimefan (7 months ago) #19743689You got a really good box. I actually know/recognize most of the series.
The Sheryl Nome and IDOLM@STER stuff is very nice!


Yeah, I was surprised by how much stuff I recognised. Was expecting a lot more "what the heck is this" than I got

I like the Evangelion figure and Shamal from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha - the Wolkenritter (the group to which Shamal belongs) are my favourite characters from that series.

Always interesting to see what people get in these boxes!

Ooh this was a cool box. Normally other people's blind boxes have stuff I'm not at all interested in (though the loot posts are always super interesting~), but I would have been happy to receive this box. If you decide not to keep Eli, I'd be interested in taking her off your hands ^^
