Old Computers, what to do with them?

July 16, 2009

I’ve got a lot of junk laying around, some of it can be seen in the posts image. Almost all of that works, only the silver monitor doesn’t, and some of the keyboards. The black monitor I’m planning to keep but added it to the pile to make it seem more impressive ;).  The silver […]

Kotobukiya’s Nozomu, more photos

July 15, 2009

Akibahobby has more photos of this Nozomu figure up for viewing. I noticed in a few shots around her panties there’s some black lines, I’m thinking they must be shadows where the different body parts connect. These shadows are rather unappealing. I hope they don’t detract from the figure too much. I’m still interested in […]

Review: Good Smile Company’s Shiki Ryougi

July 10, 2009

Shiki Ryougi, my 2nd in fact. This happens to be the re-release of the figure and as far as I know she’s identically produced and differs only in the date she was created. I’ve heard on good authority that this is not always the case with re-releases of figures, but I’ve yet to see any […]

Review: Kotobukiya’s Plug Insulator Suit Ver.

July 5, 2009

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…

Eve no Jikan episode 5

July 2, 2009

Eve no Jikan episode 5 was released about 30 minutes ago. As always, a very good but very short episode, only 17 minutes. I guess that’s nearing a full episode of anime though. This is penultimate episode, the next episode, episode 6, is the last episode of the series. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until […]

SAL Shipping, not that slow

July 1, 2009

Turns out SAL shipping isn’t too bad after all. At least this time around. These figures, while not travelling through the portal technology Japan seems to possess, did arrive in around 2 weeks. Which is not overall a bad shipping time. Perhaps I’ll keep using SAL, I’m not sure. Additionally Hobby Link Japan uses quite […]

Review: Alpha x Omega’s Yami & Good Smile Company’s Yami

June 26, 2009

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 […]

More Horo, another exclusive and a Witch (Updated)

June 25, 2009

Bit of a compilation post here. I’ve seen a few figures released recently that I’d like to purchase, though likely wont. Especially one of them, since she’s one of those ever so loved exclusive figures. We’ve got some more pictures of the Volks Horo, some pictures of an exclusive Nozomu from Kanokon by Kotobukiya, and […]
