January LootJanuary Loot

aluchenaluchen5 months agoLoot
Hello everyone! http://e.deviantart.net/emoticons/a/aww.gif

Slowly but surely all the things I've ordered during December/January are starting to arrive, so it's time for another loot post! I got a lot of artbooks this time as well as a couple of items of one of my favorite retro anime series, so I can safely say that the past month has been a good one (⊙ꇴ⊙)


~ Persona 5 ~


Let's start with Persona again!


http://up.picr.de/31756325fr.jpg


Morgana comes with a shitload of extra faces and accessories, so I’m having a hard time on deciding how to display him.


http://up.picr.de/31765339go.jpg


http://up.picr.de/31765340cu.jpg


"Ha! It's almost scary how good I am!"


http://up.picr.de/31765341bb.jpg


http://up.picr.de/31765342cb.jpg


With Morgana's arrival Joker finally got company on the shelf - from his own team at least as he has Lisa Silverman from Persona 2 with him since the colors match so nicely.


http://up.picr.de/31765343jg.jpg


While I was typing this loot post, a wild mailman suddenly appeared and delivered Figma Joker to my doorstep. I guess you could say that I didn't see it coming! (This joke is getting old.)


http://up.picr.de/31765335mo.jpg


Joker looks awesome! He's by far my favorite Persona Figma:


http://up.picr.de/31765336qv.jpg

Since there is no figure of Arséne (yet?), I'm displaying him with Magatsu Izanagi. Hey, at least the color scheme fits.


http://up.picr.de/31765337js.jpg


And here's the Holy Trinity of Persona MCs:


http://up.picr.de/31765338gv.jpg


Furthermore the P5 rubber strap set I ordered waaaay back last year finally arrived. Strangely enough the box had been opened before... maybe the guys at the customs office were really curious this time.


http://up.picr.de/31765370ga.jpg


http://up.picr.de/31765371gs.jpg



~ Pokémon ~


After getting Red & Green a while ago, my Nendoroid of Ash eventually arrived, too:


http://up.picr.de/31757031si.jpg


I love the box he comes with!


http://up.picr.de/31765280pl.jpg


I'm glad how Ash turned out and I really hope that GSC will make more Nendoroids of older Pokémon characters. I'd love to see Misty, Brock or Team Rocket! Although I highly doubt it, I can dream, right? At least we're getting Giovanni soon ITEM #655570, even though they're just making him because of Ultra Moon/Sun T_T

And here are all of them together:


http://up.picr.de/31765281oe.jpg


After assembling my first paper theater a while ago (which was a lot more fun than I thought), I just had to order more:


http://up.picr.de/31765284bb.jpg


And a few display cases to avoid the final products getting dusty:


http://up.picr.de/31765283ed.jpg


Now Charizard and Blastoise can join Venusaur once they're finished:


http://up.picr.de/31765282vj.jpg



~ Attack on Titan ~


Prepare for more keychains, yay!


http://up.picr.de/31757953kh.jpg


I'm glad I finally got my hands on these two because they're so adorable. I had a hard time finding Levi because he was sold out, but fortunately the seller restocked him eventually :D


http://up.picr.de/31757954xk.jpg


Also got this Erwin plush because I thought he'd look funny together with the large Levi plush ITEM #514143 I have:


http://up.picr.de/31765308yg.jpg


http://up.picr.de/31765310ez.jpg


I wonder if Levi is glad that he's the larger one for once?


http://up.picr.de/31765311vh.jpg


View spoilerHide spoilerI also received a can badge as goodie with the keychains and the plush I bought. I neither know the series nor the character, but he looks cute :D

http://up.picr.de/31757962ru.jpg


Apart from that I bought more clear files because I just can’t help myself. Keychains, rubber straps and clear files will be my demise some day ⊙︿⊙


http://up.picr.de/31756406xf.jpg


I love the one with Levi sitting on the chair! :3


http://up.picr.de/31756407rt.jpg


The clear file also came with a post card:


View spoilerHide spoilerhttp://up.picr.de/31756417qp.jpg


And last but not least I received this clear file from a friend here on MFC:


http://up.picr.de/31756408pl.jpg


Said friend also sent me this AoT play mat:


http://up.picr.de/31756414du.jpg


I've been using it as desk mat since I don't play the Weiß Schwarz card game and I gotta say it works pretty well cause the quality of the mat is really nice.


http://up.picr.de/31756415oj.jpg


Furthermore I got this clear poster/card thing (can anybody tell me what these are actually called?) and a set of stickers from her. Thank you so much! <3


http://up.picr.de/31756416yk.jpg


Additionally I got this Attack on Titan artbook:


http://up.picr.de/31756440tf.jpg


The artbook came with yet another clear file, featuring the artwork on the cover:


http://up.picr.de/31756441gd.jpg


The artbook itself is great and I'd recommend it to Attack on Titan fans. Unlike the other artbooks which focus solely on the Anime, this one features artworks previously shown in magazines as well as artworks for collaborations/advertisement and events.

Some of these promotional pictures are quite hilarious :D My favorite ones are definitely these:

Love the fact that the razor is called "Schick" which means chic/fancy in German.

~ Record of Lodoss War ~


The figure up next is a "grail" - if I had actually known about its existence before ^^; I’ve always wanted a figure of Deedlit because Record of Lodoss War is one of my favorite retro series which I am still very much into nowadays. The only figure of her that is relatively easy to get is ITEM #9617 but whenever I saw her she was very expensive and I wasn’t quite willing to pay that much for such a small figure (◞‸◟) It’s a shame that there are a bunch of lovely garage kits of her, but no company ever made a scale figure.

Anyway, to make a long story short: I stumbled over this model kit on Yahoo auctions by accident and I knew I had to have her! Fortunately she was already assembled when I bought her, but since the model kit only consists of 5 pieces it would have been easy to put her together myself if that hadn't been the case.


http://up.picr.de/31765305qz.jpg


http://up.picr.de/31765306he.jpg


http://up.picr.de/31765307ew.jpg


Needless to say she has a couple of paint flaws and doesn’t look quite up to date, but I dare to say that for a figure made in the 90s she looks pretty decent! I also love the fact that she’s very large, so she doesn’t look out of place standing between my other figures.

Furthermore I got this manga box of “The Lady of Pharis” which is one of the stories taking place in the Record of Lodoss War universe. I bought the German versions of the Manga back in the day, but I wanted to get this version for the artbook it comes with.


http://up.picr.de/31756559lo.jpg

They also changed the cover artworks for this special edition, but the artworks of the original covers are still on the back of each volume:

http://up.picr.de/31756705hz.jpg

http://up.picr.de/31756561ro.jpg


As you can see the special edition has a much larger format than the original Manga volumes, which already were oversized to begin with. It looks really impressive!

Now for the reason why I actually got this box in the first place... the artbook (≧∇≦*)


http://up.picr.de/31756593ha.jpg


Unfortunately it only has about 45 pages, but nevertheless I'm glad I bought the Manga again because of the artbook since it features a bunch of artworks of my favorite character from the RoLW universe. Unfortunately Beld is very unpopular despite being the story's main character in this Manga (and this Dreamcast game ITEM #475415) and even though I've been a fan of RoLW for well over 15 years, I've only seen a handful of fanarts (or general artwork) of him so far. Therefore I simply had to get my hands on this book :D As for the reason why I suppose he's unpopular: View spoilerHide spoilerBeld's soul gets tainted by a demon sword at the end of this Manga and he turns into a bad guy during the course of the following storyline of the RoLW universe. The following story is way more popular than this Manga since it got an Anime adaption and to make matters worse I'm not even sure how many people actually read the Manga about his background story to begin with. Thus for people who're just watching the anime or read the other more popular Manga, Beld is simply another run-of-the-mill villian with little screentime *rant over*

Anyway, here are some of the artworks featured in the book:

I also got these two books:


http://up.picr.de/31756736fa.jpg


Originally I was only interested in the right one, but since there was an auction for the both of them which was actually cheaper than buying only the one I wanted, I thought why not.

The book on the left is pen & paper tabletop role-playing guide which is super interesting if you ask me, but unfortunately I can't read it of course. It's also very yellowish due to it's age as it was released in 1989, but at least it came with a nice map of Lodoss:


http://up.picr.de/31756737od.jpg


I thought the other book is an artbook featuring the artworks from the card game, but boy I was wrong. It actually comes with the cards itself!


http://up.picr.de/31757955wd.jpg


That's awesome, but also makes it a bit difficult to thumb through the book without damaging it. It was a nice surprise though!

...and here's Beld again, this time 30 years after the events taking place in the Manga I mentioned above:


http://up.picr.de/31757956rs.jpg


Last but not least I finally got the DVDs of the "Chronicles of the Heroic Knight" anime adaption, after getting the special edition Blu-Ray of the regular RoLW OVA a while ago. Somehow I doubt they're ever going to remaster these DVDs since the OVA is way more popular.


http://up.picr.de/31756738mz.jpg


~ Other stuff ~

I also got this adorable Hoozuki rubber strap via Yahoo auctions:


http://up.picr.de/31756800dt.jpg


I was so proud of myself for not buying any games in January and diligently working on my backlog, until I went to GameStop to preorder the upcoming Attack on Titan game and saw they had a sale. Damn, so much for my willpower (´・_・`) But some of them were so dirt-cheap that I simply couldn’t resist.


http://up.picr.de/31765312lx.jpg


While being there the clerk also gave me this Kingdom Hearts pin as a gift. Supposedly somebody returned the special edition and they were going to sell the game in used condition without the extras, thus I got this pin for free. I really love the guys working at our GameStop :D


http://up.picr.de/31765372vr.jpg


And I got yet another artbook:


http://up.picr.de/31756869zt.jpg


Wow, it's way thicker and heavier than the previous book!


http://up.picr.de/31756871dn.jpg


Here are some of the artworks:

The book is definitely a must for every Zelda fan with the tons of artworks it comes with.

So much for the stuff I got in January :)


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

RubyRed (5 months ago) #31074952AmiAmi hat wirklich eine tolle Auswahl! Allerdings habe ich keine so große Lust bei Ihnen zu bestellen :-) da musste ich bis jetzt immer zum Zoll und der ist so ewig weit weg...

Echt? Das ist ja nervig -.- Allerdings kostet das Paper Theater ja nicht viel, von daher bist du auf jeden Fall noch im Zollfreibetrag und die dürften es eigentlich nicht einbehalten. Ich habe das Kirby Paper Theater zusammen mit ITEM #633839 bei AmiAmi bestellt und das ist ohne Zollgebühren bei mir an der Haustür gelandet. Aber wie gesagt, die Paper Theaters gibt's ja notfalls auch noch in anderen Shops ;)

aluchen (5 months ago) #31074898Danke :D
Das Paper Theater mit Bisaflor hatte ich während meines Japan Urlaubs gekauft. Glurak und Turtok habe ich bei Hobby Link Japan gekauft, allerdings mussten die sie nachbestellen, weil sie keine mehr auf Lager hatten. Ich habe also keine Ahnung, ob's die noch gibt. Kirby habe ich von AmiAmi und der ist auch noch zu haben ;) Es gibt aber auch zig andere Motive, kannst ja mal durch gucken: slist.amiami.co...

jumpluff (5 months ago) #31074577Congrats on your grail! Your Persona display is looking very snazzy.
There's a lot of love put in this post, I really appreciate the details about the Zelda artbooks. Thank you! I don't know anything about Lodoss, but I do love retro series and the art is great. Nice to see some appreciation for them. ^^
(I own Hyrule Historia and I already think it's too heavy, in a good way e.e... But the books do go nicely together.)
You did very well for yourself overall :D Have fun with your games.
edit: Do you have any posts or pictures of the assembled paper theatres? I'm feeling myself slowly sucked back into Pokémon collecting and very curious about these. Posts like these with all that tempting good stuff don't help XD You have an eye for interesting goods.


Thank you very much ^_^

I'm glad to hear that! Do you think you'll get the Zelda artbook for yourself? And maybe you want to check out Lodoss some day, it's great ;)

Thanks, I'll be busy for a while playing through all these games, haha.

Here are a "few" pictures I took while I was assembling the paper theater:

http://up.picr.de/31765282vj.jpg

As you can see some of the pieces are very small, thus you need quite a bit of patience. To be honest I thought I wouldn't enjoy it at first (I only bought it cause Venusaur is my favorite Pokémon) but in the end I liked it so much that I bought more paper theaters :D I'd definitely recommend getting one of these pinpoint roller glue pens to glue the pieces together (seen in the first photo) because trying to do that with a normal glue stick is definitely not going to work well.

Helsing (5 months ago) #31074634P5 figs look great although I am not a fan of figmas and nendos. And about that elf I though it was Oberon from SAO cause the 1st photo I saw was the back shoot :D Looks like you have a lot of fun ahead to deal with -

Thank you! :) I'm actually not such a big fan of Figmas myself (Nendos are fine) but I think the P5 Figma turned out great.

I had to google for Oberon, but you're right, it looks kind of similar xD

I got the artbook from Amazon.jp, but Tokyo Otaku Mode and CDJapan also have it. I guess you'll be able to find it in other shops, too! :D
