February/March Loot (and a little bit of April)

aluchen6 months agoLoot
Hello everyone! http://e.deviantart.net/emoticons/a/aww.gif

It's been a while since I've written a loot post, mainly because I tried to reduce my purchases, which (partly) was a sucess. So here's what I've gotten in February and March, including a few items from the beginning of April :)

❤ Queen of Hearts ❤

I’m a sucker for red hair and of course this figure had caught my interest from the very beginning for exactly this reason. Her overall design simply appealed to me :) I had even toyed with the idea of preordering her, but ultimately decided against it. But just like usually when a figure catches my eye and I’m super proud for being strong and not pre-ordering it, I come back to it several months later and buy it regardless ;) So much for my self-restraint…

No regrets though, she’s wonderful!

However this figure gave me the worst unpacking experience ever. As every figure she came wrapped up in protective plastic, except this time it was adhesive plastic! It was like she was wrapped up with adhesive tape X_x Fortunately it left no residue on the figure, but it was hell to unwrap it, especially the curly hair. I was super afraid I might break something off the figure.


Haikyuu

I got a few Haikyuu Nendoroids last month, among them Hinata & Kageyama, which were supposed to be Christmas presents for my fiancé before they were delayed to April. Fortunately their release date had been changed back to March eventually :D

Also got Sugawara for him:

What I like about him is that he actually has a pin to attach the ball to, unlike Hinata & Kageyama. Whenever you move/dust them, you can be sure that the ball will drop from their hands >_<


Fire Emblem

I’m not really a big fan of Fire Emblem (even though I've played some of of the games), but I thought the Nendo looked pretty cute. She was 42% off on AmiAmi, so why not? :D The main reason why I got her is the Pegasus though, which I’ll be using as horse for ITEM #464729 when he’s released.

Balancing her on the horse is a pain in the ass, but at least the result looks pretty cool :D

Attack on Titan


I already own a couple of Levi figures and should probably really stop buying them, but this was one of the remaining figures I definitely had to get:

He’s really neat for a prize figure and looks pretty cool sitting on his horse. Now I only need to get ITEM #290074 eventually.

Furthermore I bought another smaller figure of him:

Also got a bunch of other stuff, including Vol. 18 of the Manga, a disturbingly cute titan rubber strap, a clear file from FRaU Magazine (am I the only one who thinks it’s funny that a Japanese women's magazine has a German name?) and… yes, a coloring book!


http://up.picr.de/28794449zd.jpg


In my defense I can only say that I got the coloring book as free copy from the publisher, otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten it. It’s not a really great coloring book except for a few pictures (which will probably drive you insane while coloring them):

http://up.picr.de/28794523ii.jpg


The rest is more like “color the Manga”, including speech bubbles and everything. For a free copy it’s alright, but otherwise it’s not worth the money in my opinion.

Vocaloid

I’m happy I was able to add more Kaito items to my collection, including two items I had been searching for for a long time :D (namely the clear file and the Senbonzakura rubber strap)


http://up.picr.de/28794446yd.jpg


I got the Senbonzakura rubber strap from a fellow MFC user who also sold ITEM #363059, so I bought it as well:


http://up.picr.de/28877043wz.jpg


He’s super cute :D


Hoozuki no Reitetsu

Got a few things cheap off Ebay:

Reading that a 2nd season of Hoozuki no Reitetsu is coming in Fall made me incredibly happy :)


Manga & games

I recently got into Ace Attorney (can’t believe I waited until now to play it!) and of course had to get all the Manga volumes afterwards. Fortunately I found most of them really cheap, so it wasn’t much of a problem. They’re much better than I expected and really funny, too! The only one I’m not that fond of is the Doujinshi one (far right one in the bottom row) featuring Edgeworth, so I don’t think I’ll get the one focusing on Phoenix.


http://up.picr.de/28794403wd.jpg


Furthermore new volumes of the P3 & P4 Manga were released recently:


http://up.picr.de/28877299hq.jpg


Moreover I got a couple games, many of them older ones that had been on my wishlist for a while:

Additionally I bought this Game Boy glass I coincidentally spotted at GameStop and just had to take home with me :D


http://up.picr.de/28794404ql.jpg


And last but not least: The long anticipated Persona 5 “Take Your Heart” premium edition ^_^


http://up.picr.de/28877048gg.jpg


The artworks on box:


http://up.picr.de/28877049es.jpg


The collector’s edition is splendid and comes with a lot of neat goodies:

http://up.picr.de/28877051hr.jpg


Yes, finally the game was released after many delays and I’m so crazy about it I even took 2 weeks off to be able to play it to my heart’s content. I've finally finished it yesterday after 76 hours! :O


Other stuff

I got another set of the bases I bought several months back. They’re a bit pricey including shipping & customs, but at least they’re looking good and I haven’t seen anything similar being sold around here, so I bit the bullet once more and got another pair ;)


http://up.picr.de/28794431uu.jpg


I also finally got a folder for my clear files! It feels good to organize them :D However I will never order a clear file folder from AmiAmi again cause it’s waaay to pricey. And why? Look at this:


(Nendoroid Box is for scale)
http://up.picr.de/28794432yh.jpg


*drumroll*


http://up.picr.de/28794433vk.jpg


Yeah thanks AmiAmi, now I know why the shipping was expensive. So nope, no more clear file folders from AmiAmi, at least not if I’m not buying a scale figure or a couple of Nendos along with it...


Thanks for reading http://e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/hug.gif

The confidants? No, I didn't. I think it's also kinda difficult to do so in the 1st playthrough cause you need some of your stats on level 4 or 5 to proceed the social links with certain characters (e.g. for Yusuke you need Proficiency on 4 later on). For my first playthrough I rather concentrated on maxing out all my social stats and reading all books/playing all games. I'll max out all the confidants in a second playthrough ;) The only party members I had on max link during the first playthrough were Ryuji, Ann, Yusuke and Morgana (well, that one's automatic anyway) and Makoto on 7 ;)

That's true, Junpei was quite the jerk to the MC in the beginning because he was so jealous. I think P4 MC and Yosuke were much closer than P5 MC and Ryuji in the end though. It's a shame your console broke, but maybe you'll get the chance to enjoy P4 as well someday :)


kin (6 months ago) #19823349Whoops I meant first castle! Finished that now but I feel like redoing it because I wasted a day away D: Did you manage to level up all the cards? Ugh I spend too much time on Kamoshida's eyes looking for them. I bought P4 but I never got into playing it and sadly my PS3 is dead so I can't give it a try sadly. Hm I really like MC and Ryuji dynamic so far unlike the MC and Junpei from P3.

aluchen (6 months ago) #19806809You mean the palaces or the story? I think some of the palaces later in the game are definitely nerve-wracking. The puzzles drove me wild more than once (even though they weren't that difficult, but I just hate puzzles, haha). I also enjoyed playing it a lot, even though I still like P4 better. But nevermind me, I'm a P4 fangirl and therefore totally not objective! I just think the dynamics and chemistry was slightly better among the P3 and P4 cast than it is this time ;)

kin (6 months ago) #19802012I am yes I'm trying to enjoy it but it's nerve wrecking hahaha I'm almost through the same castle and I didn't expect to enjoy P5 as much as P3 to be honest!

Yes, she's wonderful! I'm so happy I decided to get her in the end :)

Thank you!

Unfortunately I've already deleted the E-mail from AmiAmi about the shipping cost by now, but I remember that it was more expensive than the clear file storage holder itself. I think it was around 900 Yen for unregistered SAL? So if you order it, I'd advise ordering some small items like e.g. rubber straps (or clear files to fill the folder, haha) along with it to make the most out of this huge box ;)

tetrix (6 months ago) #19804476Nice loot! Just for reference, may I know how much shipping cost did you pay for the clear file storage holder (or more specifically the weight)? I am planning to buy one from AmiAmi using SAL unregistered, but I never expect it to be packed in such a huge box!

aluchen (6 months ago) #19780015Enjoying it again by watching my fiancé playing it ;) He was constantly urging me to play through it quickly so he could finally start playing it as well, haha. Are you currently playing it, too?
Thanks, I really like this figure as well :) Definitely the best prize figure of him in my opinion.

I am yes I'm trying to enjoy it but it's nerve wrecking hahaha I'm almost through the same castle and I didn't expect to enjoy P5 as much as P3 to be honest!

She's from a Chinese figure company called Myethos and therefore not allowed to be added to the database, otherwise I would have linked her like the other items. There's a club for Myethos figures on MFC though CLUB #1507

ICantBelieveIts (6 months ago) #19792128Please tell me what item the Queen of Hearts is? Can someone link her?
