300th MFC Figure GET! April to Mid-May Loot300th MFC Figure GET! April to Mid-May Loot

shinhawkshinhawk5 years agoLoot
I don't really do any loot article posts, but being as I just got my 300th figure according to the MFC database, I just wanted to show what figure purchases I made and why I'm quite happy about a lot of them.

I bought a total of nine figures from the start of April up to now.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/shinhawk1368609350.jpeg

The first figure I got in April was Max Factory's Ruca/Luka Trulyworth(ITEM #285). I found her for 4725 JPY at Jungle and I was really happy about getting her since Ar Tonelico II is one of my all-time favorite PS2 games. She is not my favorite Reyvateil from the series, but nonetheless, I really wanted to have her and I got her for a good price. My favorite from the series is Chroche(romanized as Cloche in the US version), but I knew getting her would be more difficult and expensive since she is just as rare and worth more than double Luka's aftermarket price.

Taito's P4U Aegis Prize Figure(ITEM #123386) arrived next. I was happy with the quality considering it was a prize figure. Not amazing, but good for what I paid for. I quite like all of the character portraits in P4U, so I was quite happy to see the majority of them get turned into figures. At this point, I had the entire line pre-ordered except for Yu Narukami and Yosuke Hanamura which evaded me.

Only days after Aegis arrived, I came across the three previously mentioned figures that evaded me: Max Factory's Cloche(ITEM #4849) and the P4U prize figures of Yu(ITEM #131132) and Yosuke(ITEM #131133). I got a figinstock notification saying that Big in Japan had more pre-orders available for Yu and Yosuke. I immediately jump on that since they were all I needed to complete pre-orders for the P4U prize figure set. A few days later, I was looking at Cloche's entry page and saw someone posted a Jungle link to her which said it was sealed but with blister damage. After e-mailing Jungle, they said the figure itself wasn't damaged and the only thing wrong was that the front window was falling off. I ordered her right after that e-mail and paid for her just as quickly.

I was quite happy when I successfully ordered them and when they all arrived this summed up my feelings for that day.




Come May and my first figure purchase that came in was the Saber Nendo Petit Racer(ITEM #108753). I didn't realize the car was a kit, so I haven't put it together yet. Since its quite small, I'm actually going to go through with painting it.

I got the first of my next batch of figures this past Saturday at my local Kinokuniya Bookstore. They had special event going on in which customers with membership cards got 20% off anything in the entire store aside from stuff already on sale. I took the opportunity to buy the already cheap Kotobukiya Black/Dark Magician(ITEM #91372). After discounts and tax, I paid just under $70 for him.

When I got home from Kinokuniya, I found a notice in my mailbox informing me that I missed my delivery for Arts Spirits Katherine(ITEM #99081). I got her on sale at Otacute for $25.90 and after reg. SAL, I only paid about $40 for her. Picked her up first thing on Monday morning. I really like her. She might be a bit of a nightmare in the game, but Catherine is definitely the worst of the two in the story ^^;. Katherine would end up being figure #299 on my MFC list.

Finally, Alter's Kongiku(ITEM #98783) came in yesterday. I woke up to find that the post office employee already delivered her and that one of my family members signed for her. I missed the first round of pre-orders for her, but a small amount opened up just before her release. While I wasn't originally feeling her, I ended up pre-ordering her on a whim and I definitely do not regret it. What makes me really happy is that I did not spend a penny from my monthly income on her. I paid for her using the money I made from selling all sorts memorabilia I no longer care about. As far as what can be accounted for on MFC, I'm glad she became my 300th. figure. She's quite lovely and it will be great to put her next to Momo. :)

These figure additions further improved my great mood which came about due to seeing a great result from the Formula One Spanish Grand Prix. The driver I support, Fernando Alonso, won.

Anyways, thanks for reading and happy figure collecting to all of you.


YES! YES! YES!

Sukianime (5 years ago) #1508998Cool loot ^^ Congrats to reaching 300th figures! I secretly hope I get that many...and maybe even...more....
Kongiku for your 300th is very nice, I was on the fence about getting her and now after seeing all the pics of her I kinda regret not getting her :x

Maybe you will get more! Just mind the amount of space you have. ^^;

Kino (5 years ago) #1509341Wow congratulations! I wish I reach your number soon but I'm totally running out of space lol
Thank you, both! I am indeed having space problems now. I long since maximized the space in my room to display my figures and store my boxes. Now I'm storing boxes elsewhere such as the hallway closet and behind the couch. Unfortunately, it hasn't stopped me from buying more. LOL.

Sakarii (5 years ago) #1509251Congrats on reaching your 300th! It's cool how not only you got to 300 figures (that deserves an award in of itself), but how you managed to snag a bunch of your major wants to get to your 300th in style.
Now you just need to celebrate in style. :P

Thank you! Indeed I do. Maybe I'll go for some Korean BBQ! ^^;

Always impressive to see loots of 8-10 fig at the same time... I'm rather Happy when I get 5 in a month.
I find the GSC Racing Saber really cute, btw. ^_^

She is very cute sitting in the car! I'll probably buy paint for the car this weekend and get started on painting it. :)

Hatchuu (5 years ago) #1509027Congratulations on the milestone and especially on snagging the Ar Tonelico figures! I have them too and they're one of my favourite parts of my collection, Cloche especially~
Thank you! I remember reading your blog post about getting Luka and Cloche and I was so envious! I'm very happy to have them both now. I feel like playing Ar Tonelico II music. :)
