Plug Cryostat Insulator Suit Ver.) by Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya’s Plug from Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!! I decided to skip my other figures and review her first since I haven’t seen many reviews out there for her, and she’s being re-released this fall. Plug was completely an impulse purchase, I’d seen the series was coming out, but didn’t know much about it. I’d seen the figure was being re-released and though perhaps I’d pre-order. Surprisingly, Hobby Link Japan had some of the original 2007 run figures in stock, so I jumped on her immediately. To purchase, I jumped to purchase… Continue reading Plug Cryostat Insulator Suit Ver.) by Kotobukiya

Golden Darkness (Yami) by Good Smile Company & Alpha x Omega

Double Review! I admit I’ve been holding out a bit. I’ve had one of these figures for 5 months, surely I could have posted about it previously, but I just never managed to do it. Now that I have two Yami’s I figured it was time I got it over with. I considered posting them separately, but a double review seemed like it could be fun. But it turned out to be a lot more work than I expected.

Horo by Kotobukiya

This review has been a long time coming. I’ve set it aside for another day a few times, saving it for later always. I kept choosing to do this because she’s probably my favourite figure so far and wasn’t quite sure how to present that. Not only is she Horo, one of my favourite characters, but she’s done rather well in this figure. She’s also the smallest Horo I own so far coming in at 1/8th scale.

Suzumiya Haruhi Swimsuit Ver. by Kotobukiya

Another figure produced by Kotobukiya today. Seems they and Good Smile Company make the figures I like most. For those who don’t know, you’ve been under a rock, but Suzumiya Haruhi is a character in a self-titled show The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi by KyoAni. The show is based on a series of light novels by Nagaru Tanigawa and was enormously popular when it aired.

Sawachika Eri Swimsuit Ver. by Alter

A number of times I’ve been asked “why did you purchase that bitch? you don’t even like big breasts!’ and this is true. Why did I purchase Eri Sawachika? Because she was cheap. That’s not entirely the only reason, but I’d been on the fence on this figure and even went to purchase it, but later removed it from my order. Then a month later I noticed she was going for ‘only’ $30 I believe it was, which was pretty reasonable, so I purchased.
