Treasure Festa 2009

May 1, 2009

Over on foobarbaz.jp they have a report of their findings from Treasure Festa 2009. Honestly, I’m not sure what Treasure Festa is as I’m fairly new to the figure scene myself. The only events I’m aware of prior to this is Wonder Fest. Anyway, it appears Treasure Festa is a travelling anime figure convention focusing […]

Spoilers before release, arg!

April 28, 2009

Going through my daily websurfing routine I came across some spoiler pictures from Spice and Wolf II ep 0. Now, I’m as anxious as anyone to see the next episode and on the verge of looking for spoilers. But I hate them, I hate spoilers so much. I always feel like when I receive a […]

The Crappiest Dragstrip on Earth

April 27, 2009

I think this just might be the worst drag strip ever. At first I thought it might be someones driveway given the starting line of the drag strip and the crowd gathered around. I think that would have been better than what followed. My biggest question, why is there a turn?! Oh right, to avoid […]

Review: Kotobukiya’s Suzumiya Haruhi Swimsuit Ver.

April 27, 2009

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 […]

Review: Kotobukiya’s Nagi

April 20, 2009

I kind of purchased this figure on a whim one day while watching Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens. Nagi and Jin seemed to have a nice chemistry between them and after a few glances at pre-production images I decided to give in and purchase. Then I waited. And waited. And waited some more. 6 months of waiting she finally shipped and arrived.

Review: Alter’s Eri Sawachika Swimsuit Ver.

April 11, 2009

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.

Review: Good Smile Company’s Shiki Ryougi Garannodou

April 3, 2009

Another day another figure. I wish it were that often, actually no I don’t, that would be far too expensive. For todays figure we have Shiki Ryougi from Kara no Kyoukai. Kara no Kyoukai takes place in the same universe as Shingetsutan Tsukihime, both are by Type-Moon and have been adapted to anim

Following instructions and doing the Impossible

April 2, 2009

I decided that because today is such a nice day outside I’d try out my new computer for my car, the Cobb AccessPORT I purchased last week.What this device allows you to do is rewrite the mappings for your engine. Cobb provides a number of ‘off the shelf’ maps for the device, however with more […]
