Warning: Pic heavy. And words. And Miku.

Home is where the heart is, and it’s nice to be back. Work took me overseas for a number of months and I’m only now getting back into the swing of things. During that time, I had plenty of pre-orders on the way, so my co-workers were nice enough to receive my packages for me. This was all sitting in my office when I came home.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494414588.jpeg

So yeah, quite a bit of stuff in those boxes. The full list is above, but it was mostly Nendos and prize figures, as well as a few scales and Figmas to round things out. If you can’t tell, I’m a big fan of Miku, hence all the swag from Goodsmile Racing, the Miku socks and also the Magical Mirai 2016 Blu-Ray. Miscellaneous items inlcude Cowboy Bebop on Blu-Ray, a few albums and a replacement Miku snowboard wrap blog/27041&....

It honestly took foreeeeever to unbox all of this stuff, especially since a few items required some significant assembly. It was a nice trip down memory lane though going into the Gunpla closet and grabbing the old kit. But yeah, after an entire day everything was all pieced together and ready for display.

So diving right into things we have Remilia Scarlet. She induced the heaviest of my heavy breathing. Also, I haven’t been this nervous putting a figure together since Godoka graced me with her presence. Definitely required a soft touch and a little sorcery. The figure is absolutely gorgeous though. I saw the prototype in person at AmiAmi and it was a must buy on the spot. Now to look into this Touhou Project.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494414596.jpeg

So sticking with the supernatural, some friends of mine came across the Madogatari crossover. Nothing new, but still a match made in heaven. My friends hunted these down for me, and since they’re all prize figures it was a relatively inexpensive addition to the collection. Just wish they all had connecting bases, especially Homura and Hitagi whose bases could have been shared instead of wasting space. Oh well.

Next is my new favorite maid. Either she’s insanely adorable or adorably insane, but either way Rem sets the new standard as far as maids go. If a maid isn’t able to go oni and completely wreck me in an instant, then she ain't a maid for me.

Speaking of demonic, look no further than Ainz and Albedo from Overlord. Their expressions are just perfect. Ainz pretty much matches how I look at work when someone does something stupid, and Albedo is my mirror image when eggnog hits the shelves each year. Really though, GSC did great with Ainz. What impresses me most are the little things like the eyebrows lifting to change the express. Took a while for me to even notice.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494415363.jpeg

Now for another angel of death, Elise from Fire Emblem. Not sure if I’m the only person, but when I saw Elise’s healing wand I couldn’t help seeing a scythe. That ruined everything. My mind no longer sees a cute Nohrian princess, but instead one of the four horsemen cheerfully galloping across the battlefield lopping off heads left and right … um, so yeah.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494415375.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494415377.jpeg

Over these months we had three heroes arrive, Genos (the Worf effect) and Tatsumaki (sassy child) of One Punch Man lore, as well as My Hero Academia’s Deku, the plain looking one. I have to say that after opening these three, they all seem pretty basic. That’s not a bad thing, but Deku literally came with a smash sign and different hands. That’s it. At least the hood or a hero notebook would have been nice. I can live with Genos and Tatsumaki’s extras, even though I feel like her extra hair pieces could have been replaced with something else.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494414848.jpeg

We all know how this ends for Genos.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494414850.jpeg

Saved the best for last. It’s Miku time starting with the orange blossom version. I saw the prototype during I think Miku Expo or something, but it was super glossy and I was set on passing it up. Well along rolls the actual release and from what I saw in Superstickman’s review BLOG #31860 it was toned down nicely, so I changed by mind. I’m allowed to do that. Anyways the figure is the second most gorgeous in this batch. The colors, the outfit and the sculpt just work all around (especially the dress' ribbon tails) … well everything except for the base actually, but it does make the figure “pop” more.

Lion Dance Miku! OH. MY. GLOB. Picking a pose was so hard for this Nendo. Definitely one of the cutest items I own now. That dumpling face is happiness in its purest most unrefined state – the kind that has a pretty high street value. Due to the magic of the postal system, I somehow ended up with two of these as well. Good fortune indeed.

Racing Miku 2016. Yes. Yes to the colors. Yes to the simplicity. Yes to the accessories. I love the racing Miku series, but was definitely disappointed with last year’s design. It’s not that it was bad, just felt out of place. 2016 brought me back though. I mean just look at that Nendoroid!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494414836.jpeg

I was both pleasantly surprised and pleased with the TeamUKYO Racing Miku entries. The look and design is amazing, and Miku carries that tire like a champ. Even makes me want to start biking again. Putting the bike together for the Figma was a bit of a chore, but definitely worth it in the long run. The level of detail is immaculate.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494415517.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494415525.jpeg

At some point while putting this together, I got inspired and decided this Figma needs more photos, now.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494371657.jpeg

So remember six hundred something words ago when I said putting Scarlet together had me sweating? Well that had nothing on Snow Miku here. The difficulty lies in putting the twin tails in, which is a harrowing experience. Needless to say I spent five minutes with a hammer trying to knock the hair in flush with her head. That and a little bit of sorcery went a long way. Don’t think I’ll ever be able to take her apart again, and doubt I’ll ship her pieced together, so here’s to the rest of our lives together.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/e-Bro1494415582.jpeg

Phew, and that’s it. Glad that’s over with. Definitely prefer to open one or two pre-orders a month now. Took some time to set everything up and definitely starting to run out of space, especially in the racing section. Might be time for another trip to IKEA, or to sell and consolidate. Guess we’ll see.

Well, that’s that. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the post. Later.

e-Bro (1 year ago) #21031234There's never a stupid question! Little by little. My coworkers had the key to my house, so they dropped a few things off as well. The rest of it got loaded up in my car over several trips, especially since I had a few more boxes and luggage sitting at the post office too.
Your co-workers are really nice. Damn, that's a mighty fine collection you got there.

Your Miku collection is really nice :) All the hair flowing everywhere^^
Thanks! Haha and yeah there is a lot of hair in that collection. I had to position everything so they wouldn't all get tangled with each other.

horatio (1 year ago) #20978566So many boxes...so much loot. Ok, possible stupid question: how did you get all of it home from the office?
