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]
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]
It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]
Did you know I like Yoko from Gurren Lagann? Well I do! I own about 28 Yoko figures and am still missing only one to complete my collection of all the Scaled PVCs of Yoko. This is the latest one that has been released for Gurren Lagann's 5th Year Anniversary. Of course I'm partially biased when it… [more]
Those know who me personally know I have a 6th sense when it comes to Anime shops, I always have my eye open for one and just my luck while walking around in London I spotted one! It’s been a while since I’ve done a Figure Retailer Review, so I thought I’d bring you a treat with this shop I spotted! Also don’t forget to leave a comment for the upcoming Giveaway!
A Giant wall of just plushies! I know tons of girls who would be drooling over this wall!
Some awesome hats as well, I somehow missed out on that awesome Kero-chan hat!
Anime bags too!
Tons of shirts, cosplays too!
Very nice selection of manga!
Sadly my walls are out of space so i couldn’t pick up any one of these awesome wall scrolls, also no space in my suitcase.
Some awesome and recent figures! Also really good prices too considering that with the cost of shipping to Europe from Japan!
So many awesome figures but sadly again the lack of luggage space meant no new figures for me.
Lots of Pocky! Lots of phone charms!
Lots of Cosplay accessories!
Loved this phone case!
Some of your favorite girls! I of course did get the Yoko mouse pad!
The plushie selection was just astounding! I’ve never seen so many plushies!
Really awesome characters to choose from! So many Card Captor Sakura ones! I got all but one! Also snatched up a Sailor Moon Plush as well!
Love the Luna hat!
Tokyo Toyz was an awesome store to walk into. I’ve walked into so many anime stores in the US and haven’t come across one like that that seems to truly understand their fans and what is popular at the moment. I’ve seen many stores that only sell what they can get a high profit on, or what is the latest fad like Naruto or Bleach. It’s a very awesome store to check out and they have an online shop too! Tokyotoyz.com!
Edit: I guess many people have realized some things in these images that i might have missed, Bootlegs. I’m sorry guys, I always just look at the figures first and if they are legit then I’m happy, but i really didn’t notice so many other bootleg items! Including the Yoko Oopai mousepad I purchased myself >_< FOr myself I’d say they might be nice to check out for figures, but you should, as I should as well try to never support bootleggers and purchased bootlegged items. Sorry guys
