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]

Eye Up’s Badass Yoko

Here i finally got my hands on Eye up’s Yoko, she is truly worth the money i spent on her. This is now Yoko #4 (ouch) of my quest to obtain every Yoko figure made. 4 down 9 to go.

This Yoko this is a Yoko I’ve been eagerly awaiting for a while. the moment i knew she wsa getting a PVC release i knew i had to get her. For Yoko figures it’s hard to claim a favorite since each one is awesome in it’s own right.

Now i have to warn you i took a lot of pictures.

Normally it’s easy for me to remove pictures as i go along and make them smaller for my site.

This time it was harder since Yoko is so awesome. Even boota is awesome! He’s got the best seat in the house!

It’s a really good action pose for Yoko.

Yoko looking right up at me.

Boota happens to also be removable but i like him in her cleavage.

Nice backside you got there Yoko.

Such a big gun! I love how she can hold it like it weighs nothing, a real gun would weigh SO MUCH!!!

more side Yoko

I love the open mouth, not many figures do the open mouth.

Lots of brush around her, i was planing on shooting here somewhere else but there was a fence casting down a nasty shadow on the ground. But i think it ended up looking better this way.

really nice detail on her hairpin since it’s the same way from the original image.

more of the yummy backside

I love how she just holds the gun so easily!

Little more heiney there for you.

When Yoko came out some people were talking about this bulge, but i have to say in person it doesn’t look bad.

It’s got to be something with the shading that in film it looks bad, but in person it doesn’t stand out as much as it does here.

Her hair also looks just amazing with how it looks just windblown

For some reason her scarf is removable

i don’t know why they would make it removable but it doesn’t look bad. I just prefer scarf.

This is the original image this figure is based on, they stayed quite try to the original design! Only thing that is different is how they added Boota.

hands down this Yoko is truly amazing. If you wanted her but weren’t to sure on it trust me she’s worth every hard earned penny. the paint is flawless, no noticeable seam lines.I really don’t see any problems with her, other than her thigh highs are a bit shiny but it’s not too bad. Her dynamic pose just makes your eye look at her first when you see all my Yoko figures together. Now out of the 14 Yoko figures that have been announced, released and up for pre-order i currently own 4. I’m still on the road to get them all (Gotta catch them all!) Are you going to get a Yoko figure? and if so is Eye Up’s Yoko on your wish list?

    Damn she’s lovely…not too sure about her expression though…seems a little off to me.

    Still, I’m either going to get this one, or the Yomako-sensei figure…I hate tough choices >_<

    oh well, guess i’ll have to miss this one out. but i’m definitely getting the Alter Yoko in battle gear. i guess u probably already ordered your right? ^^;

    btw did u bury the base under the leaves?

    @Snark:
    Oh they are just both awesome! I’m getting Yomako sensei as well.

    @gordon:
    i removed her fro the base and balanced her as well as i could in the dirt.

  4. Rin says:

    I do say, from the original picture, she’s kinda looking up then straight a head…
    Still, it looks like it’s a figure owrth getting…

    Nice Outdoorshooting!Its weird like everything in the background is brown.Isnt Autumn supposed to be more colorful?
    I originally had her on preorder too but switched to the 1/5 Movic Yoko.The Movic Yoko is a bit off facewise but i liked her open wide pose more ^^

    This Yoko is one fine piece of a… figure.I really like her overall appearance.Does she have a light blush on her cheeks or is it just my imagination?

    My preorder got canceled since the shop couldn’t bring it in. It was a last minute issue, and Kamina didn’t make it in either >_>

  7. Spirit Rubi says:

    I’ll always love Yoko, this is also yet another amazing figure of her. The open mouth is a very cute touch. <3

    Great photo shoot too as always~ If you ever make a book for all your photos you should definitely put Yoko on the cover. =o

    I wish I could get more Yoko figures though, my mom wouldn’t be a big fan of her chest though. I’m aiming for getting Yoko nendoroid, Yomako-sensei and Yoko revoltech though… if I can. XP

    I’ve been reading your blog for quite awhile but never made a comment because I kept forgetting too, oh well. So hellos. XD

  8. Dancing Queen says:

    @Rin:
    she does even on the figure, my angling was just weird since she didn’t have he base

    @Blowfish:
    we don’t get fall in the so-cal. we get summer, spring and cold. we don’t get winter or fall here really. cold for us is like 50-60degree Fahrenheit.

    @double:
    damn that’s got to suck, kamina is just awesome as well

    @Spirit Rubi:
    it’ll have all the yokos, a giant section just for my yoko figures!

  9. You wouldn’t happen to know Kid Nemo’s phone number would you? They sent a bunch of packages to my old address and I need to contact them but since they didn’t respond to emails in the past I was hoping I could call them…

  12. AS says:

    It looks a bit weird for her to be looking up like that xD. Other than that the sculpt looks good. Her gun is so huge lol, must take up a lot of space. Bunta looks happy xD.

  13. jinx626 says:

    This would be my 2nd choice of the many yoko’s that are out on the market or going to be. Since i hate collecting many figs of same character i am waiting for Alter’s version of Yoko. The pictures you took look very nice and the pose of the figure is probably the best one out there. Looks like a gem in your growing collection ^^

  14. @Dancing Queen – Thanks for looking anyways, I hope they reply to my email this time…I’m very distressed =_=

  15. lovelyduckie says:

    Definitely the most dynamic pose of all the Yokos, I was darn close to ordering her. I myself plan on owning Enterbrain Yoko (check), the Konami trading figure (check), All 3 Alter Yokos (1 pre-ordered), and the GSC Nendo (also pre-ordered).

  17. lostty says:

    The hair and facial expression looks absolutely magnificent! The pose is wonderful as well; great photos! I really like the setting, the rocks and dirt go well with the action like pose of the figure.

    #2 Yomako-Sensei

    #3 older Yoko

    I was under the impression all 3 were Alter but I could be wrong.

    @Lovelyduckie:
    i’ve heard about the young yoko but i think she’s not from alter… yet i could also be wrong

  21. lovelyduckie says:

    Oh I hope it’s by Alter. It’d be really nice to have a Yoko figure by Alter from every stage of her youth throughout the series…minus her costume at the end with the stars…I’m not sure anyone can really make that look so awesome in a figure, but I suppose if anyone could do it it would be Alter (or Max Factory).

    yes and i have both and the regular edition and that limited edition pre-ordered

  24. ron~ says:

    hmm, I cancelled my pre-order for this one (due to AU$ being sooo weak…), she looks nice, but I still think the enterbrain Yoko is still the best :D

    and yeah that young yoko that lovelyduckie linked would be nice if it’s alter’s :D (very doubt it tho)

  27. The original advertising for this figurine asserted it came with tiny batteries and bullets, but I just received mine a few days ago; and neither tiny batteries nor bullets were to be found. Also, there’s no indication on the packaging as to exactly where the gun rest should be placed; so I’ve got it supporting the flash suppressor. Regarding Yoko’s holding her rifle at near arm’s length, bear in mind that she’s an athlete; and although it’s apparently illegal in Japan to depict females with muscle definition in their arms, the “real” Yoko would have had awesome biceps and triceps. All in all, this is an excellent figurine which could only be improved by giving Yoko muscle definition in her arms.

  28. Dancing Queen says:

    @Joseph A. Haran, Jr.:
    actually you might be confusing her prototype with the original design she{d based off that does show batteries, and bullets. From my recollection no official promotional pictures for this specific yoko showed any of those two items.
