August 2017 Haul

Hello everyone! A big chunk of pre-paid preorders were received in August, so this haul ended up being much larger than I had anticipated. I also tried out a new subscription box for July and (accidentally) August. Why do I keep doing this to myself?

Without further ado, here's what I picked up!



Don't like videos? No problem! Take a look at everything under the cut.

Anime Island decided to ship out the majority of my preorders in August, so I had a big moving size box waiting for me outside of the door one day! Boy am I glad to have a Kaito scale. I do wish there was a bit more on his base, but since I also have Miku and I ordered Luka, I feel like they will balance the scene out.

I didn't want to do it, but man did I want a Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune scale! And since they are 1/10 they will fit right in with my World Uniform Operation inners... I just wish Bandai loved me enough to make the final product look like the prototype. But they don't.

I somehow took too long to pre-order Iwaizumi on AmiAmi, so I ended up getting him from Anime Island as well. I must have been ordering something that required a little more money in order to hit the requirements for the 17% sale.

And I was surprised to see Sasuke in a standard nendoroid box. I do wish there was some consistency with the box style for this series.

As usual, I had to have some things from AmiAmi as well. I ended up ordering three Yurios, one for myself, one for my sister, and one for a user in Europe. But since these are so easy to come across on Mandarake, I feel like it would be cheapest for her to order from there. I think shipping from the states might be a bit more hefty.

Did I need a CCS mirror? No. Is is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS? YES. Yes, it is.

The comb is a beaut as well, though it is pretty large. I wanted to use it as a hair accessory, but I may need to use one of those... hair.. doughnut things to give my bun enough volume to hold this up right.

While we're on merch, I picked up some rubber straps from Ten Count. I missed out on the other straps and mini figures for this series, and wanted to get some sort of merch (aside from my mouse pad).

We all knew I was getting Viktor, can't leave Yuuri by his lonesome now, can we? And YES bless GSC for wanting my money and making a Li Syaoran figure. If you make Toya, I will give you money as well, but I know there won't be enough demand for this. ;A;

But I'll give you money, man. You like money, don't you?

I got some Banpresto figures as well. I love Dio, despite the defect on his neck, but I was a tad disappointed with Gintoki. It was quite difficult to put him together and I couldn't push him in all the way without the fear of potentially damaging him.

Haikyuu hell does not stop at nendoroids, my friends. These little plushies are too cute to pass up. Halp.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Ose_931506299301.jpeg

I think AmiAmi got their own personalized boxes in July, right? When you take them apart, there is a cute little message from Amico on one of the bottom flaps. Stay responsible, friends!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love sales? I wasn't planning on getting these this month, but Hobby Search had some things for great deals. I was able to get the Celty figma for only $30!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Ose_931506299273.jpeg

I wasn't planning on getting either of these, but they were a nice deal on the Hobby Search sale and they look so darn cute too!

I had a few things in my private warehouse and had them shipped out in August. Fushimi was only around $40 I believe, after taking the HLJ cashback into account.

I had been waiting for him to go on sale and was lucky enough to order him on time, he sold out rather quickly.

When I saw this figure, I really couldn't pass it up. I know a bit of morality comes into play when ordering from a figure made by Gathering, but I really wanted me a Helios. ;;

Hot Topic has a nice selection of anime shirts.

I had to pick a few up for myself during the "Pack it up" sale!

I've heard how hit or miss the Loot Anime subscription is, but July's theme (which I thought was August's box, haha) had quite a few series that I enjoyed. I really wish the Konosuba item had been something else, but thankfully I didn't own the manga. And gosh, did we really need TWO art prints in one box?

(The shirt is great though!)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Ose_931506299309.jpeg

Here's a close up on the One Punch Man figures. I've seen this type of thing in Hot Topic, and I don't find it all that cute, unfortunately.

Like a true champion, I forgot to cancel my subscription. After receiving this box, I cancelled right away (and I swear they try to make it a little tricky to find that cancellation button), but I was pleased with this box.

I had been thinking about getting this Creator x Creator figure, but I passed it up. Guess fate had other plans for me, haha.


Hope you all got some cool things in August!

And as a side note, after creating this blog I realized that the video does not seem to embed if you use the old [video]entire url of youtube video[/video] method any longer!

If you include videos into your blogs, only enter the youtube ID. That is this part of the video:

rain_drops (19 days ago) #26432733After peeking through the photos I decided to click on the video since some of the items caught my eye. I came in thinking I was going to skip through certain parts, but I wound up watching all 25 minutes. You have such a pleasant voice, it was both relaxing and interesting. I am also totes jealous of that H X H shirt. I'll have to see if I can scope it out at the Hot Topic. :)Thank you, that's so nice to hear! I can completely understand skipping through sections when it's such a long video, but I'm glad it was interesting enough for you to stick around.

I totally recommend checking out Hot Topic for shirts! I know they have other Hunter x Hunter shirts, but that was the only one that was in stock when I went.
