May/Anime North LootMay/Anime North LootLoot

arinanoarinano4 years ago
Hello everyone! This is my first blog post here on MFC! Back in early May I got a pretty big nendoroid haul that I wanted to make a blog post on but then I remembered that Anime North in Toronto, Canada was also coming soon at the end of the month so I decided to wait until after AN to do my post. Now that AN is over, I can show you guys what was added to my collection my May! Also sorry for the crappy pictures, there were all taken with my phone!

⚠ Warning! This blog post is picture heavy. ⚠
Let's get started!

Early May Loot
Back in early May, I received my April Amiami order (SAL ftw) and it was mostly a nendoroid-focused order (With a cu-poche thrown in) and in addition of that, I went to a local video game shop in my city with my friend and I managed to snag some couple of other stuff.

The amiami order in the box.

What it looked like out of the box + the other stuff I got at the local shop.
From amiami - Nendoroid co-des, Nendoroid Kurisu & Mayuri Cheerful version, Takane cu-poche
From local shop - Nendoroid Marth, Nendoroid after parts 01

Let's check all items individually!

Nendoroid co-de Takane Shijou
First in line is Nendoroid co-de Takane ITEM #464573 ! 765pro Allstars is my favorite 2D idol crew and Takane is my favorite idol ever, she's pretty much my waifu. Thus meaning I must have all of her figures! This is why I lost my shit when both a Takane nendo and a cu-poche ware announced. Obviously I preordered them both haha.

She's really pretty, the pose really fits her and the sculpt is great as usual, I'm just a bit disappointed she and the rest of 765pro got the co-de treatment.

I decided to take some pictures with her outside with Uzuki's body, the result is quite cute!

Nendoroid co-de Yayoi Takatsuki
Nendoroid co-de Yayoi ITEM #464574 is next! My second favorite 765pro girl tied with Chihaya and 4th one to receive a nendoroid co-de.

Her pose just screams ''genki!!'' which is great because it fits Yayoi so much.

Takane and Yayoi with Haruka, which I got a couple of months ago (I didn't preorder Miki because I'm focusing on my favorite girls for now. I'll probably get her later.). They're all so cute ♥

Nendoroid co-de Mikumo Guynemer
Nendoroid co-de Mikumo ITEM #463518 is probably my favorite out of the amiami order. I was so pleasantly surprised when I opened her, she's beautiful, cute and looks so much better and cool in real life than on her prototype pictures.

View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://jpeghost.net/x-SXbaaa.jpg

Her sculpt is perfect, the paint job is wow and the colors are so vibrant! The nendo capture Mikumo's charisma and beauty perfectly in chibi form!

She and Takane both have a similar pose and that aura of mysteriousness around their character so I thought it would be funny to pose them together!

Nendoroid Kurisu Makise and Mayuri Shiina Cheerful Japan! Support ver.
Those 2 ITEM #82612 & ITEM #82611 were an impulse buy after I saw them at a low price on amiami.

Box and contents

The contents of the box.



They're really cute. Not gonna lie, I bought them mostly for the cheerleader uniform but I still like them.

Nendoroid Marth
Marth ITEM #287727 was on my wishlist for a long time and now I finally got him! They were having a sale on nendos at a local shop and I took the plunge.

Box and contents

He's so cute! I like that they added multiple swords so you can equip your small lord in multiple ways. I also like that they put super movable joints to him, that maans more cool poses.

Here he is protecting Shinku from a potential enemy!

Cu-Poche Takane Shijou
Another Takane ITEM #500248 ! Here she is in Cu-Poche form!

Box and contents
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://jpeghost.net/x-RXbaaa.jpg


So cute! I like the nendoroid's face better though, it looks more mature than the cu-poche's one. This faceplate is my favorite, it's an expression we don't see often on Takane! She even comes with a little ramen bowl.

A note on the hat
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://jpeghost.net/x-bYbaaa.jpg
When I opened her, I noticed that there were no little plastic thing to fix the hat on her head like nendoroids and I was like ''what the heck how do I attach this on her head''. Turns out there's a magnet in the hat and in the head on the figure so it stays in place requiring nothing! I just thought it was really intelligent.

Here she is trying to protect her precious ramen from a hungry Harurun!

Nendoroid More: After Parts #01
ITEM #148500 Bought with Marth at the local video game shop. Nothing much to say about this one, I bought mostly because of the demon set (and because my friend told me to buy it w).


The horns attach on a figure juste fine, the halo not so much.

Here are the parts in action

Anime North Loot
It was my first time at Anime North and I had a lot of fun and I obviously bought a lot of stuff! Only a few figures though, only 2. A big part of this loot is plushies and prints. I got too lazy to take everything in picture individually as this is a pretty huge loot.

I think it's my biggest con haul so far! Lots of JoJo stuff in here as I wanted to represent the series more in my collection because I love it. Also there's some Overwatch and Love Live! Sunshine stuff. This con was not that good in iM@S buys for me.

Pictured here (Left to right) - Fate Extra CCC Nero Bride prize figure, some cute cat plushie, Hakurei Reimu Mega Jumbo Nesoberi ITEM #524430, Kurosawa Ruby prize figure, Ohara Mari ITEM #528949 & Matsuura Kanan ITEM #528950 nesoberi, Takatsuki Yayoi small puchimas plush, Danganronpa 3 Monokuma plush ITEM #484807, 2B dakimakura.

Picrued here - Higashikata Josuke plushie, Pachimari plushie

Close-up of the keychains/charms/buttons/stickers I got at the artist alley (Except the Marisa one) plus some iM@S first vision Weiss Schwarz sleeves. Sorry for the flipped pictures! Lots of JoJo, some Nier Automata, one Overwatch and Fire Emblem pinand a Marisa keychain.
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://jpeghost.net/x-GYbaaa.jpg
I also got these JoJo buttons but I already put them in my bag and was too lazy to take them out.

Close-up of the t-shirts! These are really nice.

My army of prints! Again, lots of JoJo and some of other stuff.

Let's check out the figures now!

Saber Bride - PM Figure (SEGA)
I fell in love with this Nero ITEM #167311 when I saw her box at the con and I hoped the figure in itself would be as pretty as the pictures on the box. Boy I wasn'disappointed.

View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://jpeghost.net/x-HYbaaa.jpg



For a prize figure, I'm honestly really surprised by the quality. It's so beautiful! It has lots of details, the paint job is almost flawless and she's just all around great. The only flaw I could find is a bit of plastic not polished off from her hair but it's hardly even noticeable.

Kurosawa Ruby - Super Special Series (FuRyu)
Another prize figure, this time is Ruby ITEM #494035, my favorite Aqours girl.

View spoilerHide spoilerI forgot to take pictures of the box! orz



Great sculpt as usual as with most of Love Live prize figures, though the paint job could have been better on the white lines on her uniform.

And last but not least, Something a bit spicy.
View spoilerHide spoiler2B Dakimakura


2B is so cute and sexy! If Takane wasn't already my waifu 2B would take the spot for sure! I really like this dakimakura, it's sexy without being overly lewd. I think my cat likes her ww

That is all for today folks! I hope you enjoyed the read and if you have any critique about the form of my port please tell me so! The next big haul I should get is in August so stay tuned!

cspikes4 years ago#21590893I sat too long on the Saber Bride figure and missed out on both the battle bride and the regular wedding dress one. That same table ended up putting out a few Idolm@ster figures on Sunday though, which was a nice treat! I had the same problem as you that it seemed pretty hard to find decent Idolm@ster figures - LoveLive everywhere

I found most of the iM@S figs way overpriced. I could find those on mandarake or amiami for 1, 220jpy while I saw the same figures at AN for 80cad at some booths. And I found no Takane figures that I didn't already own so that made me sad wworz
