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]
You ever have one of those times where the stars align and you get the most prized figure among figure collectors… then it goes on re-release? Yeah it’s totally fun! /Sarcasm. That must be the feeling so many otaku are feeling right now, at the same time I have been so lucky this past month. It seems a giant whole in the ceiling opened up for me too and I was gifted some of the most amazing figures. Including this amazing Shiki! Well you don’t have to be too jealous, as you can now get your own Shiki, since as mentioned she’s now up for a re-release!
The fans voted during Good Smile Company’s 10 year anniversary voting process and let the fans decide what figures should get a re-release. This stunning shiki was among the top voted so GSC has answered our please and are making her available to you again!
I personally missed out on the original pre-order due to a time in my life when no job = no figures. It got harder and harder to collect but I’m so happy to have the family and friends that I do. They’ve kept me going and if this new top secret super awesome job goes through I’ll be paying them back soon!!
Oh yeah, did i mention I might finally go back to work!?! It’s been over 3 years years since I’ve had a paying job. I’ve been living off money from plushie sales, being the house slave to my parents and it’s not been fun.
However it seems things might make a complete 180 and I’ll have an amazing job. Still need to hear back from them as I was kinda offered a job, but they need clearance from the top guys. So now it’s the waiting game!
I know this hasn’t been much of a review, and more me being happy the direction my life seems to be taking. Nothing is for sure, which is why it’s still super top secret. But once I know anything You guys will be the first to know!
Back to lovely Shiki, my pictures don’t do this figure any justice at all. She’s just too stunning for words and really a prize among so many figure collectors. Not owning her is like passing up the chance to own the Mona Lisa in your own home. I highly recomend you get her for your own collection! Especially since she’s so cheap compared to figures now-a-days. at just under 5,000 yen she’s quite the steal! She should be out sometime around November.
Manufactured by Good Smile Company
Initial release in November ’08
Price of 6,100 Yen
Get her before you miss your chance again at anyone of these fine retailers!!
