Hello MFC! And welcome to another blog in my collection series! These blogs cover figures from my collection that have been in storage for a long time due to my emigration. I also use this as an opportunity to practice with my new camera and also appreciate the items I have been owning for a longer time!

The figures we are going to look at today is again quite a random assortment:

- Strike Witches - Francesca Lucchini - Strike Witches Trading Figures Vol. 1 (Konami) ITEM #26741
- Lunch Box - Lunch (Dengeki) ITEM #5063
- Queen's Blade Rebellion - Ymir - Excellent Model - 1/8 - Steel Staff Ver. (MegaHouse) ITEM #18544
- Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu - Kinoshita Hideyoshi - Resinya! (Cospa) ITEM #26243
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters - Jounouchi Katsuya - ARTFX J - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #119375

Strike Witches - Francesca Lucchini - Strike Witches Trading Figures Vol. 1 (Konami) ITEM #26741

First up is this...kind of awkward trading figure of Lucchini. I never purchased this figure individually but still ended up with two in my collection. One was part of a small Strike Witches lot and the other one I once received as a bonus from a seller. I guess she is hard to sell and/or low of value.

She has nice detailing on her shirt, but that is also the only thing that stands out to be honest.

I like the inclusion of the string around her neck.

No shimapan, though!

Lunch Box - Lunch (Dengeki) ITEM #5063

I reviewed this figure more in detail a while back BLOG #42881 . For now, enjoy these pictures with my new camera!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635161.jpeg

If it wasn't for the huge difference between the colors of her hands and the colors of her face, I would have loved this figure so much more!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635162.jpeg

Her clothes are separate layers, giving a lot of display options!

Queen's Blade Rebellion - Ymir - Excellent Model - 1/8 - Steel Staff Ver. (MegaHouse) ITEM #18544

Also for this figure a more extensive review can be found here BLOG #42364 . This figure is currently my main piece of reference while I am working of a cosplay of this same outfit cosplay.com/mem... .

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635165.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635167.jpeg

This figure looks very good for her age (released 10 years ago)!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635168.jpeg

Lovely expression.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635169.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635170.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635171.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635172.jpeg

So many great details and colors!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635173.jpeg

________________________________________________________________________________

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu - Kinoshita Hideyoshi - Resinya! (Cospa) ITEM #26243

A kind of odd release this Cospa Hideyoshi is. It's in a very different art style than the average Hideyoshi figure and the quality is a bit questionable, but it's still a very nice piece for the fans. A more extensive review can be found here BLOG #43100 .

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635176.jpeg

Such an adorable and irresistible pose!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635177.jpeg

Most of the original dissatisfaction when this figure was announced was the 'chubby cheeks' face, I think it's kind of cute.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635178.jpeg

The hands are a bit awkwardly 'melted' together.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635180.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635179.jpeg

Still it's at least for me impossible to dislike this figure! I recently almost bought his color variant ITEM #26245 as well!

________________________________________________________________________________

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters - Jounouchi Katsuya - ARTFX J - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #119375

The last figure for this blog to discuss is Jounouchi!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635184.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635185.jpeg

This is the small scapegoat key chain they made for the first release of the Jounouchi figure, I'm sad they stopped doing those first edition bonuses after a while.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635186.jpeg

Jounouchi is nowadays also a bit of an 'older' figure (8 years old), but he still looks pretty good!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635187.jpeg

I always loved the shininess of the school uniforms with these figures!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635188.jpeg

With some figures in this line the duel disk decals started 'leaking' over time, luckily this has not happened to my Jounouchi (unfortunately my Kaiba has it though).

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635189.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635190.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635191.jpeg

Got to love those Yu-Gi-Oh! hairdo's!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635192.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/02/14/2635193.jpeg

I like the movement in the jacket.

And to finish it!

For those who read all this way, thank you! My next blog will probably be another entry for the Maakie's collection!

setokaibaswife15 days ago#92420827Oh, that's awful, I'm sorry that happened to you ;_; I own a lot of Yugioh figures, I actually own 6 Kaiba (4 regular (1 is first edition), 2 exclusive) and a bunch of the others (my Yami Yugi is also first edition) and none of them have this problem thankfully. Maybe it's heat related? It kind of looks like it's melted to me...

They have been packed up and stored + moved a couple of times in the years I owned them. Still it's very odd for me then that only Kaiba has it as I didn't do anything different with him than my Jounouchi and Yuugi. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Oh well...can't do anything about it. Maybe put a custom decal there if it would get worse or really disappears.

I had all 3 of those figures as a pre-order, so I am the first owner and always had them displayed for the same amount of time and mostly even on the same shelf. So the conditions in which all 3 of them have been displayed are in theory similar. Still, this situation has only happened on my Kaiba! So it doesn't seem to depend on age as Yami Yuugi is older.
Yeah a discussion on a figure page a while back made me realize how old these YGO Koto scaleds already are haha. It doesn't feel like it though, feels like I've had them maybe 5 years.

victorviper16 days ago#92345006Lucchini with no shimapan? What's up with that? That is one of her signature features, after all.
I'm always tempted to get that Ymir figure when I see it, because it has a number of cool features like the dual wielding and the neat design of her outfit, and that figure is not very expensive these days, but without EMS I am always hesitant to pay more for shipping than the figure itself.


I guess the 600 yen release price was too cheap to include such a detail.

Did you ever consider surface shipping? It's a long wait but I have good experiences with it. Never got anything damaged through surface shipping and always cheaply priced as well. This Ymir is a really great figure!

setokaibaswife16 days ago#92345060I love the face on that Hideyoshi figure! Unique face styles are really one of my favourite features in a figure, really draws me to them.

Yeah he is very cute and unique! His market price is all over the place though, sometimes he's like 3-4K then I don't see him for a while and then it's 10K-12K, recently I also saw one without a box for 2K. I can't even point out an average selling price!

setokaibaswife16 days ago#92345066Also, I'm curious, what do you mean by Duel Disk decals leaking? None of mine have this to my knowledge
Tjilp15 days ago#92378065What do you mean by the duel disks 'leaking'? :o

Sorry I should have probably elaborated. ^^'' This is how it looks on my Kaiba:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/06/19/2003739.jpeg

It's like the decal is disintegrating. I've seen people posting comments on the pages of Kaiba, Yami Yuugi and Jounouchi (the 3 oldest releases in this line) complaining about this issue, I am not sure if newer releases could be affected by this as well or Koto changed the way they made/attached the decals after this.

I had all 3 of those figures as a pre-order, so I am the first owner and always had them displayed for the same amount of time and mostly even on the same shelf.

Tjilp15 days ago#92378065Oh my, is that Jounouchi figure so old already xD Daamnn.
I also own him and the shiny school uniforms I also really liked <3 Currently he's in storage, sadly.
Love to read these blogs! Keep em up <3
Took the liberty of checking out your cos progress and you have so much work done already! Really cool to see all the foam creations :D

And thank you! I've got a bunch more progress I should be uploading to cosplay.com, but I am also working on a cosplay diary that I'll be uploading here. :)

And yep! A bunch more blogs like this is planned as well! ^^ I really like writing/photographing them!
