テイルズ オブ ルート 「9月」駿河屋

Hey MFC! It's been over a year since my last Tales loot post. Life's been pretty busy with uni, incoming graduation and a lot of Tales of the Rays.
Get on that game, it's actually really good. Beware the microtransactions though!

This box was heavy. It's not a 'coffin' but it's by far my largest order and by my standards this is pretty big.

Shout out to my good friend KP who gifted me EVERYTHING in here from Surugaya. I've been eyeing out a number of Alter scales for years and now's about the right time to grab them. Without further ado, let's get unboxing!

Just laying everything out gets you all excited y'know?

So first up we have three 1/8 Alter scales from Tales of Vesperia! Yuri, Flynn and Estelle are preowned, so I expected a few nicks here and overall they were in REALLY good condition (with that new figure smell still intact I might add!)

Yuri came with a few minor paint transfers on his hip because of his scabbard, so it wasn't too bad given that I'd cover it up later anyway. His scabbard likes to fall off a lot, guh. But man he's one sassy looking dude who just wanted to fix the plumbing back home but got stuck on an adventure with 6-7 other kids and his dog to punch an evil astral blob and save the world, I mean yeah.

Pseudo-edgelord holier-than-thou Flynn also included. I can already feel the nag-Yuri-all-day-everyday attitude from him. But I like him cuz I'm biased towards Guy Cecil's design. Flynn is great. Be like Flynn.

Flynn's glossy armour really gives off an impressive metallic sheen. Getting his right arm off to insert the sword takes a bit of muscle though to wiggle out! He looks a lot better in person, as I've noticed the photos of him make him look relatively different to his Kousuke Fujishima art.

Ah my queen and designated healer girl of the party, Estelle! I think I'm a huge sucker for characters who have been holed up and sheltered their entire life. Seeing them transition from super timid to fun and sociable really shows solid character development (Luke...?)

Like everyone says though, her base wobbles and she's supported by one and a half pegs to one foot. It's not a secure base and leaning might be a concern. Nonetheless a REALLY PRETTY FIGURE. When I opened her though, one of the spikes on her rod were missing, so I looked around and felt pretty bad until I saw a tiny white speck inside her box and TA-DA, all fixed (might need better glue...)

A very satisfying trio! Sad I can't play Flynn in English Vesperia without tinkering with a PS3.

Next up we've got a whole heap of games! I grabbed a few PS1 titles first and was delighted to see that Destiny came with art cards! And man I forget that game manuals are a thing. Really great for about 200-300 yen a pop per game for collection's sake. Eternia's three discs but Phantasia and Destiny are only 1? Wow.

I tried getting Destiny 2 for PS2, but my proxy notified me the day after that Surugaya had sold out ;n;

I also grabbed Rebirth and Legendia (forgot to take photos), but the inside of Rebirth seemed to have someone's... notes...? I can make out a fair amount of it, but given that I haven't played Rebirth yet I'm not sure if it's related to the game. Pretty cool added bonus to the game, thanks former owner!

The Director's Cut Premium Box for the PS2 version of Destiny really blew me away. I mean, it was 300 yen cheaper than the standard Director's Cut! Came with the game, artbook and the soundtrack with lots of pretty visuals.

The DS titles - Tempest, Innocence and Hearts. I'm aware the latter two have Vita remakes but I wanted the source material. I'm also playing Hearts R in English right now and am really enjoying it (minus the typos and weird localization here and there).

Finally some PSP titles. This is my second copy of Versus so I can try some multiplayer with a friend. I'm excited to try the hack and slash combat of Twin Brave and really want to try out Guy! I'm thinking of grabbing the Radiant Mythology titles in the future when I can invest time into paying attention to story.

And here's everything! It's real satisfying to line up loot after checking out all the items!

Slowly growing the Tales corner in my room. If timing goes well I'm getting Lloyd's Alter figure early next week! (I am soooooo excited for him!)

Also I burst out laughing at "(Luke..?)".


The guy just needs a hug and some counselling for his dad issues from the movie.

I really like that Estelle statue. Congrats! I'm hoping we get more Berseria stuff because that game really brought back my love of Tales games after Zestiria nearly killed it.

Muhaha welcome to the club my friend *evil grin* XD

MobiusX3 years ago#26138756When I was in Osaka last year I grabbed ITEM #322218 for my friend but tbh I'd much rather have kept it haha. Actually I saw that scroll for sale when I was there too! But I was torn between that and the Estelle Yuri one >_<
Uh, that one is still on my list as well! Such a cute image <3 My heart would have bled giving it away ^^; But nice of you to do that! I hope I can snag the YuriFlynn one somewhere sometime next year when I'll hopefully will be back to Japan T_T

Wow... So much Tales of swag. I saw Tales of Destiny! An underrated game imo

I love those Tales of Vesperia statues the most, especially Flynn! Man, makes me wish we got the PS3 version of it so we can get more Flynn "BEAST" Scifo. To this day, I'm surprised they haven't made a Judith statue :/

Yays!! More Tales of merchadise! I really love your collection ^-^. Wish I had the space to create something like that but my goal is to have all scaled tales characters. Getting there slowly...
