Hello! It's me again with my usual late loot posts.. And this time, 2 orders actually built up because of me not making the loot post.. So this is gonna be the stuff I got in late Dec and late Jan xD
So here's the Dec loot.
First up, one small packet package
It had Bandai's new Sabo 5th anniversary figure, which I really liked.
The details are really nice, and I love the pose and fire effect better than Megahouse's/other companies Sabos.
I actually like the clear effect they give these figures.
After that, I got these 3 bad boys
I lost the pictures that had what each had inside, so I'll tell you instead :p
One box was from Amiami, one from Rakuten and the last one was from Jungle.
This was my first purchases from Jungle and Rakuten too, I went to them because of Manda's changes.
Anyway, the Rakuten box had 4 of the Tamashii effects which were ITEM #164706, ITEM #164704, ITEM #304380, and ITEM #315611.
Only the flames were for me and the rest was for a friend.
The package had quite a bit of empty space and paying 4k for EMS shipping really annoyed me at the time.
Now the Jungle package was packaged neatly, I really liked how they didn't leave a lot of empty space, and I felt like the shipping was justified.
It had 3 figures it which were.
Bandai's Ace, Nami and Sega's new Christmas Miku
Miku's box was as big as Nami and Ace's combined.. it was really big
She scales even bigger than Max Factory's 1/7 Luka
I used the flames with Ace immediately :3 it looks quite good and adds to the figure.
I also used it for Sabo later.
Now on to the Amiami order.
Don't get me wrong, I love this site for what it offers, but the shipping has been really killing the fun.. Wayy too much padding makes for too high shipping costs.. I mean other shops like Manda or jungle just add a little padding and the shipping costs are reasonable, but Amiami's is always a little over the top and I'm now trying my best to avoid EMS cuz it's always over 4k >_>
For this it was 4k for a figure and a Tamashii effect (ITEM #315611)
They came in perfect condition, but I can't help but feel pretty salty after seeing like 35-40% of the box was empty..
The box of Kaneki was quite stunning. I really,really liked it.. It seems I haven't uploaded the other pictures of the box though but oh well
Of course the figure himself is quite amazing as well, he would have been perfect if not for the exclusive head BS but eh, took a pic with flash so you could see all the details.
Good job Koto, now if only you could give us more characters..
Here's all the figures unboxed
And the whole loot.
Playing with the Aura effect was definitely fun
Here's how everything looked in my collection afterwards
Now on to the Jan loot
Which was one huge box from Amiami
It had 9 items inside, so let's go through them!
The shipping was 50$ though, the highest I've ever gotten, it was mostly because it had a wall scroll, ITEM #153162 and Amiami's usual
The whole order started with a Mug.. And it kept adding up until it reached 200$ by the end, lol..
The TG cospa wall scroll
It was really good quality, but it better be, because it's more expensive than the wall scroll on Amazon or Eastern entertainment's which are way bigger.
Also got my first charms which are pretty cute, was quite disappointed by Yato's size though
Now I'm displaying them like this with my figures
Also got the UBW calendar, also first calendar I get.
Btw, HOW do people rip these beautiful photos every two months? ;') I just can't.. I wanna frame them all and display them in my room! xD
Now on to the figures which were 3
I got Banpresto's Shirahoshi, which is really big, detailed and nice, I don't like the extra focus on the oppai and the heaviness though.. I might end up selling her.
The other prize figure I got was Misaka from Sega.
I have been wanting this figure for an entire year, and I haven't found her until last month.
Also got Tamashii's thunder effect to go with her, and boy it looked good on her.
I think this figure of her is the best, it has some lightning effect, a slight blush and Misaka is in a dynamic pose! I really can't like many of her other figures, they all don't show what the character represents in my eyes so I kept waiting for this until I found it
It feels so gooood..
She came a little smaller than I expected from a PM figure, but it turned out better in the end as she looks almost in scale with my other imoutou figure, which was nice.
(I actually got jealous of my friend's thunder effect that I got from him and ultimately got one for myself, I didn't know I'd find Misaka in the pre-owned section.. The shipping increased by 12$ just for it though, and I felt like it alone costed about 24$ in the end which was quite expensive).
Anyway the main star from the order was Snow Miku 2014! Her box is huge, the shipping killed my wallet, but she's so cute so I don't really mind anymore.
It was an impulse buy, I saw a picture of her and my Sakura Miku and couldn't resist xD
Here's some random pictures
The book is quite handy for keeping the small accessories and for nice shots
Sakura Miku looks really cute with snow Miku's face plates
I'm gonna use this for anyone that tells me figures are toys
And finally, here's the whole order together!
I hope you enjoyed this loot post!
It was a pain to get it right this time because I'm really short on time and the pictures/system weren't helping, so I wasn't in my best mood, still, I hope I did a fine job.
Look forward to another loot post in the future :3
