FIGURE PREORDER ROUND UP! (May – July 2017)

FIGURE PREORDER ROUND UP! (May – July 2017)

Well as it turns out, the summer laze is a much harder opponent to deal with than I originally thought.  Despite me wanting to write up some posts, I just simply lack the motivation to even get started.  So instead of trying to catch up with my preorder posts I’ll just put all my effort into one super massive preorder post!  I am definitely considering doing this from now on instead of individual posts since …

Top Five of 2015!

I was originally not planning on doing this sort of post but after some time, mainly just sitting around doing nothing, I figured “Why not?”.  This is my personal top five(s) list of 2015 consisting of several different categories!  Again this is my own personal list and is by no means anything official or really reputable.  The categories are: Top Five Figures (Purchased) of 2015, Top Five Missed Figures of 2015, Top Five Preordered Figures …

PREVIEW: To LOVEru Darkness – Kurosaki Mea – 1/7 (Alter)

PREVIEW: To LOVEru Darkness – Kurosaki Mea – 1/7 (Alter)

Well I was trying really hard to hold back on preordering any new figures until the end of the year.  We can all guess that that was massive fail, no thanks to Alter that is!  From my favorite borderline “ero” manga To LOVEru Darkness, Alter has bestowed this beauty of a figure of the lovely erotic Kurosaki Mea at 1/7th scale!  I could not resist! This figure of Mea is based off of this scene …

Anime Expo 2015: Exhibit Hall, Random News, and Loot!

Anime Expo 2015: Exhibit Hall, Random News, and Loot!

So it was once again that time of the year for Anime Expo!  I know I was saying last year that I was not interested in going again this year but after a tough and long school year I really needed a mini vacation and an inexpensive one at that.  So unlike the past few years I actually spent all four days at the expo at a block hotel, the JW Marriott.  Scored a really …

2014 Missed Opportunities! Figure Edition

2014 Missed Opportunities! Figure Edition

A bit later than I promised, since I pretty much worked throughout New Years and spent my last two days recharging and getting things done before I start school again, but here is my yearly “Missed Opportunities” figure post!  You can check out my 2013 post and see how well I did there in trying to acquire the figures I missed (SPOILER ALERT I DIDN’T BUY ANY OF THEM).  2014 was a fairly big figure …

Figs to Lookout For! #1

Figs to Lookout For! #1

Alright so this will be a new post segment I will be doing one or twice a month with brand new figures to look out for.  This will sort of be like the magazine scan posts I used to do but I’ll just be focusing on the figures I am interested in.  So let’s begin! Banpresto is back making more Macross Frontier figures!  And here I thought they were done.  This of course is part …

UPDATED 8/19/2014: Well I suppose I should do an update with some of my figure orders that have been delayed, there’s quite a few at that.  As I have already said before ALL of my July orders were delayed into different dates.  Honestly I have no idea when any of those are REALLY going to get released but I can only hope that it’s sooner than later…  As it stands right now, nothing is coming in …

Anime Expo 2014 Exhibit Hall Photos

Anime Expo 2014 Exhibit Hall Photos

So here are some photos that were taken with my camera during Anime Expo 2014 in the exhibit hall.  There wasn’t much to take photos of, but there were a few booths that showcased some nice figures and whatnot.  I wish there were more events that show off figures in the US like with Wonder Fest.  Almost all of these figures were in glass cases so it looks a bit filthy.  The photos were taken …

Anime Expo 2014 Recap and Rant

Anime Expo 2014 Recap and Rant

Anime Expo (AX), for those who do not know what it is, is an annual Anime convention held in downtown Los Angeles, California at the LA Convention Center.  This marks the 10th year in a row that I attended the Con.  Pretty damn crazy thinking it’s been a decade since I made this event part of my yearly doings.  Though I do admit I really thought last year was going to be it for me, …

July Updates: Anime Expo, Babymetal Concert, More Figures and Other Stuff.

Alright it’s the first day of July and I got some updates for what’s coming up, at least for me anyways.

Winter Wonfes Want List!

As you can probably tell my those figures didn’t come in Saturday as I was hoping.  Instead they came in today and I’ll probably crack them open Friday after work.  I’ll sacrifice my afternoon nap to get them done!  But that aside Winter Wonfes went on over the weekend and spew of new figures emerged!  Here are a bunch of figures, new and old, at the event that I want to get my hands on. …
