Big March/April Loot!Big March/April Loot!

solluxcaptorsolluxcaptor5 months agoLoot
Hello there, I'm stylishly late as always but it's time for my March/April loot post!

Here's a quick overview of almost everything, as always
https://s7.postimg.cc/vw64aykl7/DSCF4262.jpg

Firstly, starting off with the assorted small goods I got!
https://s7.postimg.cc/qkr7qbbe3/DSCF4437.jpg
Lots of Yugioh here and finally some new Kira Yoshikage stuff released and I was able to track down one of the rubber straps I'd been hunting for ages. Really happy with my Yugioh haul as always :D And the phone case has Kaiba on it, of course.

Here's some other small goods that I got, I took a picture of these seperately because most of them went on my itabag, so I took this photo after recieving them all. Some are in both pictures but you get the idea.
Some of them featured in my itabag below:

I got some plushies! Up top are the Yugi and Yuya plushies, I managed to pick up Yuya in a local store because he was looking sad and lonely up on the shelf I just had to buy him. And then I ordered the matching Yugi online because of course I need both, I really wish they had continued this plush line with more characters.
Bottom line is all my soft Kuriboh related stuff! On the left is my Kuriboh embroidered pouch, in the middle is the super super soft winged kuriboh and on the right is a slightly rare Kuribon plush I was very happy to grab! I reaaaaally love Kuriboh monsters.

I got some new books/magazines/doujinshi and a random clear file that I didn't know where to put so I just put it in this picture. I'm SO happy that Dead Dead Demon's Dededede Destruction got an English print and I'm in love with the gorgeous printing especially on the cover. I've been picking up some Yugioh doujinshi because I just really like Yugioh fanart admittedly and I wanted to own some in real life, an assortment of random ones I ordered because I liked the cover and some of my favourite artists, I was pleasantly surprised with all of it. In the top right I have a magazine I ordered which also comes with a DVD, some art prints and a special Yugioh card. Aaand finally this really cute Mitsuboshi Colors clear file, I love the art style and character design in this series, so cute :D

I also got this Duel Art art book! I'm really happy with this, I actually got this for free thanks to my uni. I was given free book credits and it took me two attempts to get this - Firstly I ordered it and they told me it was out of stock and on enquiry told me they probably wouldn't be able to get more and removed it entirely from their site. BUT I WAITED... and finally it popped back up and I was able to get it straight away! :D
Some of my favourite pages shown below:

My fav lil Yugi art of him eating a burger ;-; So cute

and finally a video of the whole thing I made can be found here:

So I recently tried out AmiAmi preowned for the first time and OH BOY have I been missing out. I never really looked into it much because it is horribly organised, but I guess it has this kind of.... rooting through a bargain bin feeling to it? And I found some really great deals to throw in with my monthly order, starting with this Kancolle cutie at 480 yen. I've always really loved this set but not enough to drop 1k+ and shipping on any of the girls, 480 was a more than a reasonable price especially throwing it in with my regular order so I got her. Shes actually even cuter in person than I expected! I love her tiny fang and the figure overall is just really cute and very nice quality for a prize.

https://s7.postimg.cc/h07l3e41n/DSCF4284.jpg
Sakuya is another one that I managed to grab for cheap on my first AmiAmi preowned experience, around 700 yen I believe. Admittedly I wish I had more positive things to say about this figure because I LOVED the Remilia/Flandre from this set but she kind of falls flat in comparison to those two, aswell as mine having a few defects. I may or may not make a review for her in future since I don't really want to make a review with too much negativity... but she has nice points too! She is overall pretty nice and I think she'll look a lot better displayed together with the rest of my Touhou girls. I really like her dynamic pose a lot.

https://s7.postimg.cc/pxwwefw57/DSCF4384.jpg
Cupoche Yugi is suuuuch a cutie, I really think Cupoche are charming and this is my first time owning one. Well I won't be owning him for long in one piece since I actually bought this to use the head on a custom doll I'm making together with my friend who is far more knowledgeable about dolls than me, we just ordered the body and clothes and I'm sooo excited to show the final result! I'll be making a blog about it for sure :D
I'll definitely be buying a second one to display like this though and you can expect a review on this Yugi soon! (Any ideas what I should do with the spare Yugi body? lol ;; )

https://s7.postimg.cc/trlr9w63v/DSCF4332.jpg
I missed her first release so I was VERY happy this Aoba Nendoroid got a re-release cause her aftermarket price was a bit too much for me. I'm so happy to have her and she is even cuter than I ever imagined in person, I adore her soft and pastel colour palette! She comes with so many adorable display options.
https://s7.postimg.cc/3w20qowkb/DSCF4329.jpg
Bonus: The head harvest is bountiful this year...
Only joking, I just wanted to show off her other cute faceplates.

https://s7.postimg.cc/5b3lfe2sb/DSCF3930.jpg
I also got this cute Miku! I won't say too much about her since I already made a whole review BLOG #39623 , but she is very cute and I love her pose and outfit.

https://s7.postimg.cc/4o9a3lnkb/DSCF4414.jpg
I got my first figure diorama ever from the Oreimo Kuji set and I absolutely love it! I had so much fun putting together a little setup for it and I'm really happy with the end result. I will be making a full review on this diorama soon!
This really inspired me to try my hand at making some more complex dioramas.

https://s7.postimg.cc/6q5646917/DSCF4343.jpg
I also got this Kaiba print tote bag! I LOVE the print on this, it's gorgeous and well detailed especially on this rather large bag. My only complaint is that I don't personally believe the quality of the bag itself is worth the 4,000 yen I paid for it, it is made from a very stiff and rough type of material that almost feels cheap and inside the bag there isn't even so much as a small phone pocket, I was hoping for a few small features in a 4,000 yen tote bag at least... plus it is wide/tall but doesn't expand very much so I don't think you could put really big stuff in this. I am very happy with it though, there are definitely times that this will be handy and the print is just GORGEOUS so I had to have it.

https://s7.postimg.cc/wlownbdez/32474078_1830917077203684_391201907835666432_n.jpg
I pre-ordered this Blue Eyes White Dragon t-shirt from Japan before I realised it would be on sale at the UK Uniqlo... but I paid basically the same price and they sold FAST on the UK site so I'm glad that I could guaruntee myself one by pre-ordering it. I absolutely adore this t-shirt!

https://s7.postimg.cc/7fnygiu57/DSCF4340.jpg
Finally, practically a grail item of itself, the Blue Eyes Alternative Dragon jacket that retailed at 20,000 yen. I managed to find it unopened for the absolute bargain of 12,000 yen and I snatched that sale up faster than the speed of light. This was an absolute dream item for me that I very sadly had to pass up on release but waiting did pay off! I'm not going to take any full pictures just yet since it is basically a sacred item to me and I don't want to fully unpackage it yet, but in future I will be making a full review if you want to see it in all it's glory!

Thank you for reading if you got this far! Please do tell me if you enjoyed reading it and what you liked best :D Your comments are always motivation for me to work hard on these articles!

solluxcaptor (5 months ago) #34335910I'll definitely be making a review, I can let you know when I put it up if you want :D Oooh I adore that jacket design! I want one now too *__* Is it comfortable? It looks like it would be really comfortable to wear.
I agree! My favourite combo are dolls/action figures with real clothes but with sculpted hair, I really love that look so I'm excited to put together a custom one :D Sadly Yugioh figures in general aren't too common so... I guess I'll have to improvise making my own :P Thank you so much, I really appreciate that! and GX definitely deserves more love ;-; I'm hoping that Judai figure was signs of good things to come and I'm VERY excited to own it!
Yep I agree completely ;;; I try to hit preorder on anything I absolutely don't want to miss out on, but it does lead me to stress buying some because "what if I can't find it later??" especially if I'm wanting to complete a set.


A head's up would be great if you don't mind! ♥ And yeah, I think the jacket's pretty comfy! (again, as long as you don't mind the feel of poly fabric and I should also mention that it's unlined as well) I have it in size S and it's the perfect amount of baggy that I like in my jackets. (Cospa sizes tend to run on the larger side in my experience)
I believe they also made a Kaiba Corp variant too!!

It would be so nice if Cupoche picked up where they left off and continued making ygo protags! I would get Judai in a heartbeat if they actually did that. At the very least, making/modding your own Judai wouldn't be nearly as daunting as say, Yugi and his impossible hair, haha.

Ooo yeah, the feeling of missing out is strong with nendoroids. I used to actively buy ones just for parts that I wanted to use for customs/dioramas, but I've had to put a stop to that recently because paying 60+ USD just to get a hold of a specific outfit or prop is not appealing in the slightest, lol. I know it probably wouldn't be feasible, but I've always dreamed of GSC selling pieces a la carte on their website. *q*

Pulmo (5 months ago) #34328924Ooh, I'm curious now what the design looks like in the back! I'll make sure to hold off looking it up and wait for the reveal in your review. :D
Here's what my jacket looks like: ITEM #505347 (didn't even realize it had a db entry until now, haha) I think the quality's pretty nice for what it costs! It's pretty on par with the stuff Cospa usually puts out, if you happen to own any clothing by them. (oh, do note the fabric's 100% polyester though; I know that can be a dealbreaker for some people). I adore GX and really wanted to own a piece of official merch, and the jersey just felt.. thematically right, y'know? Like it'd be something you could see in the show being sold to fans/everyday civilians (like me, lol).
Ahhh, that sounds so exciting. ♥ I love the look of pvc figures/dolls wearing fabric clothing, it's such a pleasing combo to my eyes, haha. I'm sure your friend's got you covered, but if you need any additional advice or recommendations, feel free to message me! I've dabbled a bit in dolls of that scale, as well as making clothes/accessories for them, so I might be able to give you some pointers!
A custom Judai would be the cutest thing ever, oh my gosh. I'm so glad that he's finally getting a proper scale because as you said, he is sorely lacking in merch.
That's great to hear! And yeah, I feel like the popularity of nendos is both a blessing and a curse, haha. I'm happy that so many are being made now, but their relevancy has also made the secondhand market a bit of a nightmare to navigate. Picking and choosing which ones to preorder and which to wait on has become significantly more stressful. :V

atunafish (5 months ago) #34320170oh man those Shonen Jump x Uniqlo shirts! Most of the designs I wanted were sold out in my country, but I managed to snag one Hunter x Hunter shirt :3
that Blue Eye Alternative Dragon Jacket is such a steal! and yes, would love to see it in its full glory!! the colours look super amazing already

I love the designs so much! I was really surprised at how fast they sold out, I figured since they are quite a niche design maybe they wouldn't sell super well but I saw things sell out so fast on day 1, it was crazy.

I'll definitely be making a review! I'm sooo happy that I managed to get it in the end, at almost half price too :D

Klala (5 months ago) #34329966Nice loot, thanks for sharing!
The Miku figure is particularly cute ! And I admire your dedication to getting every Kira merch
I usually don't comment much (I probably should) but I always like reading your blog entries!

Thank you! I try to pick up Kira merch whenever it gets released, which is sadly not that often ;;

Don't worry about it, I appreciate it even if you don't comment, I do enjoy seeing your Joe icon though :D Reminds me I need to invest in more Ashita no Joe stuff.

solluxcaptor (5 months ago) #34304967Aw, thank you! The embroidery on the back is even nicer but I've only had a peek at it since I don't have the guts to remove it from it's packaging just yet ahaha ;; ooh which Duel Academia jersey do you have? I want to get some more of their Yugioh clothes and I need more GX stuff in my life. I'll definitely be making a review in future, I think it is too beautiful not to let everyone see it! :D
Firstly I'm just dressing him in casual clothes that match his style! :D I ordered stuff in black with lots of belts on it because that was very Yugi :P Of course I'll be giving him his Millenium Puzzle, but eventually I'd love to try making or commissioning his canon outfit(s) too. Oooh I love that idea omg, that's so cute! ;-; I was actually thinking about making a custom with it, maybe even Judai from GX cause he needs more merch but I'd have to do a lot of research first.
Aoba is WAY cuter in person than I expected from her pics, I'm sure you will love her! :D And honestly same, Nendoroids are so risky cause a lot of them raise in price dramatically really fast >< I learnt that lesson the hard way enough times.

chiisai-hime (5 months ago) #34309556Nice loot! The Uniqlo shirts were so popular everywhere, I could only get a M of the blue eyes shirt >_<
If you like watches, I highly recommend this Kaiba watch . It's my favorite YGO accessory and I wear it all the time! I was really tempted to get the jacket when I saw it on sale before but I could never wear something like that in public XD It's really gorgeous though!

Yeah, I'm really glad that I decided to pre-order mine, although I'm still debating if I should get the Dark Magician one too. It's selling slower but I do need to decide fast ><

Oh wow I love that watch *___* I would LOVE to get that some day, so beautiful! And ahaha well my fashion sense is always quite... out there, I stand out no matter what, so I don't mind wearing the jacket :P But mostly I'm just scared to damage it so it's only for special occasions.
