June Loot! (image heavy)June Loot! (image heavy)

ilasjailasja9 months agoLoot
Hello all! My June loot finally arrived now that it's mid-July... not sure if I'd say saving $10 on shipping was really worth the wait LOL

Let's jump in! I've only got one box this month, 6 prizes and a single nendoroid.

First, the box:

It's pretty small for containing seven figures! Must be enough people complained to Amiami about their comically oversized boxes and outrageous shipping costs they got new box sizes. Let's open it up~

Since I open from the bottom there's not much to see but the boxes of ITEM #647837 and ITEM #492286 staring back at you...

Here they all are out of the box:

First up we have ITEM #514068. Yoshiko is my favorite LL Sunshine girl so I got two of her this month, and I really love this outfit for her. She's a bit on the small side though, I wish she'd been made as part of Banpresto's amazing EXQ line.

She looks great, especially for a prize! Her outfit definitely suits her and the shinier finish on her jacket makes it look more like leather. Her hair has some nice shading as well. My only complaint is her teeny tiny pin-sized mouth looks kinda funny, I think mine missed getting a bit of white paint for her teeth.

Next up is ITEM #546385. Had to get her for her hilariously enormous hat. It's bigger than her base!

It's hard to get a good shot of her face since her hat is so huge but Furyu definitely nailed Marisa's personality.

I'm not into idolm@ster but I love Anzu's aesthetic and had to get ITEM #546375 because she looks so cute. Because she's sitting she doesn't come with a base, but I might have to put one together, since I don't want her dress or bottom to get stained.

So cute~ Her delicate pigtails are actually made of a more flexible material than the rest of the figure so they bend and don't break easily. A bit of advice when putting her together: put her pigtails on before putting her head on, they're a little difficult to angle in once her head is already on her body. I could go on and on about this figure and do tons more detail shots but we must keep on trucking!

peep my rainbow cat pajamas. I'm a cool kid.


And of course we have the lovely Mari ITEM #581586 This is one of my favorite figures of her, I love her outfit and pose. She was only 680 yen new on Amiami so of course I snatched her up

The stars on her shirt are painted impeccably!

And if we have Mari we have to have Dia. ITEM #581585 was also 650 yen new on Amiami.

The details on her sweater look amazing and her flowery skirt is also well-painted. I think this outfit really suits her, it makes her look mature (even if she is childish at times!)

And finally another Yoshiko to round out the loot! ITEM #492286 captures her dramatic flair really well without being over the top.

I was a bit worried after ordering her since someone on her item page said she has a "derp-face" but I think she looks great! She is huge and well-painted, my only complaint is a small paint bubble on her shirt, but since it's on her front and she's viewed from the side, it won't be noticeable. The crab and starfish are going to be kept in her box until I move and have an enclosed case to display her since I don't want to lose them

View spoilerHide spoilerBTW I noticed her nails on her hands and feet were painted, which isn't even a detail added on the EXQ girls. It's not much but it's a nice touch and amazing that they even added it on a prize

And a final shot of everyone together! I didn't unbox BB-8 because my nendoroid case is full and I don't want to lose any pieces but it's super cute! Amazing how we can get attached and relate to a tiny robot so much

Reianna_Trancy (9 months ago) #37719275nice loot! i was surprised by the size of the amiami box. maybe i'll make my first order from them now that shipping will be considetably less? XD

I was surprised too, for seven figures it is pretty small. Maybe they finally got enough complaints about their ridiculous packaging that they changed it, since my last order from them came in a pretty small box as well.

jujui (9 months ago) #37548171I have to say that I really like that they made them smaller, altho it's sad that they won't match my old boxes :s
Huh.. I wonder how they're going to do that one. Maybe just make the box "fatter" from front to back, or stick this one in the old box design?


Yeah my first thought when the new boxes were announced was "that's gonna suck for nendo collectors who display the boxes" like this person PICTURE #1362418 but it is good that they're using less packaging

ilasja (9 months ago) #37545772Thanks! And I was surprised too, I'm so used to the old style boxes. It'll be interesting to see the box that ITEM #549375 comes in next month since it's so big :o

jujui (9 months ago) #37545581Cool haul, grats with your new figures!
I'm amazed how the new nendoroid box is the smallest box out of all these figures, I'm still not used to it ^^
