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]
Weee Alter's Panty finally came in! Been dying for a decent Panty and Stocking figure and Alter has answered our calls! There are only a few Panty figures and by far this one is the best. Her face is truly Panty!Her eyes especially are panty, even the teeny bit of blue eye shadow that figures rarely… [more]
Haven't shown off my updated room, not much has changed other than, of course more figures! There have been so many more figures since the last update. I decided to group all my Black Rock Shooter figures together, I feel they look better together than separated around the room.I've gotten so many… [more]
Haven’t done one of these in a while, this time it’s not so much a figure shop but a card shop that also carries Anime figures. I’m talking about Desu Nation in Temple City. First found out about this shop by my friend Charles who goes ALL THE TIME! He’s crazy into Weiss Schwarz and introduced me to Terry, the owner, and got me into the game as well!
First walking into the shop there is always huge group of people there, it’s a nice local hang out place and people battle each other there too! Many fascinating cards to choose from!
Found out that not only can the cards be rare and worth lots of money, but the card sleeves too! Since the sleeves are so pretty and can be worth money many people Double sleeve their cards to protect not only the cards but the sleeves too!!
Adorable illustration on the wall near more cards!
Obviously this wouldn’t be a “Figure Retailer Review” if there weren’t any figures. Desu Nation also carries some of the more popular figures. As Terry really is a huge Anime fan himself he carries some of the more popular figures in his shop too!
My friend Nic and fellow co-host on AX Live has been drooling over this Sonico Alarm clock.
Look at all the Nendoroids!
Fancy towels used as tapestries, I do the same in my home.
Phone charms anyone?
More goodies to hang on your wall.
Picked up my own deck when I went to Terry’s shop, Started out with a Guilty Crown trial deck but upgraded to some nicer cards to kick butt with!
Plus got some sexy Inori sleeves and as I mentioned, doubled up and have two sleeves to protect not only the cards but my Inori sleeves too! Do you do this with your card as well?
Even got myself a signed card! It was originally a loaner until we could find one more rgualr version, but I’ve grown to love it and will be keeping it as it’s too pretty to part with!
Desu Nation in Temple city is a really fun shop to go to. They not only carry Weiss Schwarz cards but also Vanguard and other series too! Terry knows his stuff and if you’re in the area I highly suggest stopping by, heck I might be sitting there with a couple of friends kicking each other’s butts in Weiss Schwarz!
We also have an event coming up this weekend if you’re a card player! It’s AX Live and Desu Nation doing a Vanguard Tournament and then a Weiss Schwarz Tournament too! I hope you’ll all come by!
