Loot Haul: Grail HaulLoot Haul: Grail HaulLoot

Hey everybody! Back with the last haul for the year. As the title says, I managed to get my grails before the year ended. Let's check them out along with some other figures I got.

Bit of an impulse buy but I mainly got her cause I like how the colors stand out and the fact she was a very local purchase, ranking second in proximity. Really love the pose and the pose and the base are very unique. The box is quite pretty too.

Heard she was pretty rare so when I found someone selling her domestically, I jumped at the chance to get her. The thing I love about her the most is the pose. The confidence it radiates is top notch. A fantastic example of "cool and sexy" if I ever saw one. Was also pleasantly surprised with the color of the outfit in that it looks more dark red than in official pictures.

I can't get enough of that pose. Wish more figures had a similar "cool and sexy" vibe to them.

I bought Lin Feng from MFC user LegendarySword via eBay. My first BINDing figure and she didn't disappoint! I was already sold on her design and pose but her skin tone and cast-off features were better than I expected. The bottom part, for instance, can be removed without having to take her off the base which is much appreciated.

It never gets mentioned, but I also was very surprised by her box. Couldn't find any pictures of it but it blew any expectations I had (which was basically nothing)

If this is BINDing's standard for figure boxes then they might be one of the best "box makers" out there. The durability of the box is super solid and the red with reflective gold is a real eye catcher. Opening it is also done in a very clever way that I really liked. (Opens from the bottom and then flips forward)

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on any future BINDing figures for sure.

And now, we arrive in grail territory.

One word: Perfection.

When I first started this hobby back in February, Belldandy was one of the first figures I came across and I was smitten by her instantly and I knew I had to get her.

She checks off everything on my "checklist" flawlessly.

Pose, Expression, Outfit, Color, all perfect. I can't really put into words how beautiful and perfect it is to me. I just love everything about it.

"Extended Hand" is quite possibly my favorite figure pose. With her expression and bunny girl outfit, it's like she's saying "Welcome!" as you enter a bunny club. I love bunny girls and in my bunny farm/collection, she's the queen of them all.

Blue is my favorite color and the shade they used is so gorgeous! I can't get over how beautiful it looks on her. Just...perfect!

I like the wing background that was inside the box and it really adds to her presence. Definitely going to keep using it like this!

Earlier in the year I posted an article how when I pre-ordered her, she ended up being the last one they had and I didn't even realize it. Call it luck or a blessing, but I'm so glad I managed to get her when I did.

And now, we reach the grand finale.

Code Vein was my 2019 game of the year and the reason I got into this hobby.

Short Version: I bought a PS4 just to play the game, bought the collector's edition of Soul Calibur 6 with the Sophitia statue for cheap, found the collector's addition for Code Vein with the Mia figure, discovered this Io figure shortly afterwards, discovered (and bought) some other figures and the rest is history.

I love this figure almost as much as the game it's from and it's the true grail/my greatest "trophy" in my collection. The satisfaction of finding her was...amazing. Discovered her 2 months before she came out so I missed the pre-order but my endless hunt for her eventually paid off.

That's everything! Hope you enjoyed reading it and good luck on your grail hunts!

2B9S11 months ago#88836794Io is best girl <3 Code Vein was definitely up there for me in 2019 as well and I also went on a mini hunt for her figure. I really hope GSC is still working on getting a prototype out for ITEM #891696. I actually haven't completed the other endings in the game yet so I think I'll get on it while having Io by my side :D
Also your other figures in your haul are very nice too! Oh! My Goddess is really nostalgic for me so that Belldandy brings me down memory lane. The ruby red colouring on the other bunny girl is really unique too.


I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was a joy reading your comment! I'm hoping that figure gets made too but at least there is that tiny one that came with the Collector Edition of the game so at least there's something. Also nice username!
