Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Moetan Sale, Nendoroid Yoko, and No Alter Fate for Me

First off, found an amazing sale on Hobby Search’s Figure Bargain, Good Smile Company’s Moetan Pastel Ink for 50% off! You heard me! 50% off! I was just about to buy her last week but ended up not since she was so expensive! I had to snag her this time around!

Then i got an e-mail from Kid Nemo explaining how they never got their shipment of Alter Fate Testarossa in,  and that they doubt they will ever get her in. I’m very sad at this news since i switched over to Kid Nemo in the first place since HLJ wanted to charge me an arm and a leg for shipping. Looks like I’m going to have to find her from someplace else, but for sure not eBay. Only two sellers have her and they want over $200+!

But then also some more good news, Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid Yoko was released for pre-order! I got mine her at Kid Nemo where you can get your own and don’t worry they shouldn’t have the same problem they did with alter fate this time!

Also some of my image files aren’t showing up, i used FileDen for a while now and ever had a paid premium account with them, but they are jerks and i’m switching over to flikr soon since practically everyone uses them and i don’t see them having the same problems i keep having…

    WTF $200+! /me checks ebay. o.0 there are even figures of $500+ and you still need to pay the shipment. Stunning evidence of abusing the rare items :P.

    But you probably are in luck dude, I had double ordered Fate Testarossa a month (or two) ago. When I got one I canceled the other and it does seems it’s still in stock. It’s a german shop at Fate Testarossa 1/8 Scale PVC st and Fate Testarossa PVC statue in sc. Their price is 65,90 euro, thus like 93 US dollars.

    Good luck

    You could try to go with this Shop:

    Dam!!!. I missed out on the bargain. I thought HS already stopped listing items in their bargain bin.
    For half the price for a detailed figure like this, it’s gonna be worth every cent of it.

    Yeah unfortunatly shipping to the USA isn’t that cheap.
    DHL charges for a 10Kg package 42 Eur but for a 5kg package 32 Eur. :O

    Sorry to hear about your Alter Fate.

    Now you make me feel bad. There was an Alter Fate on eBay several days ago that went for around $72 (Shipping between $10-16) and I decided not to go for her. I could have snagged her for $80 but thought it was too much!

    I saw the Yoko nendo when I was in Japan!!!!!
    They showed her Nendoroid at Comiket at the GSC booth!!!!!

    HOLY SHIT, PASTEL INK.
    You’re a lifesaver, I’ve been wanting that figure since before it came out and I’ve been pacing around wondering if I should get it time and time again… and it’s still on half off!!
    HOMG
    HOMG

    And Getsumen to heiki mina figures too~ lifesaver, lifesaver! I’m so glad I got paid today. xD

    @ShadowKit:
    but last i checked she was sold out!

  11. ShadowKit says:

    Yeah, dang. =(
    I was so excited because when I first went to the site, it let me hit the checkout for her, and then it refreshed on me and said it was sold out. D: *kicks site* I guess I’ll put her on my Christmas list and one of my friends can possibly pick her up for me, since she’s so expensive otherwise. >.>

    I made myself feel better by buying a Kotori figure and a couple figumates from another site instead. ;_; Dang, I was so excited too! I guess this shows me that I need to be on top of things from now on. xD I’m a new figure collector, I just started at the beginning of the year with buying a set of Yes! Precure 5 trading figures from my local Japanese marketplace, and it spawned a chain reaction. But I’ve been balancing that with my manga and anime buying, and my Jrock events and things of that sort, so I’ve been pretty slow in getting new merch. >.>

    Well, I learned my lesson! *keeps an eye out on the sales from that site and others*
