☺ Hello! ☺
Welcome to my January/February 2020 loot haul!
A whole new decade has begun, and I'm still hooked on BNHA. Maybe my tastes will expand a bit this year, hopefully a little so there's a bit more diverse selection of items in these loot hauls.. though, I think it's too late to switch my focus entirely, but I'm going to try and mix a little more in, here and there since there are other anime and manga I enjoy!

These last few months completely passed me by, I spent a large majority of it working which was great financially, but really left me exhausted. My overall enjoyment of collecting diminished greatly and I actually let a lot of packages stack up for a bit and didn't cherish items as much when I received them since I quickly had to set things aside and focus on other stuff. I think it's kind of immature to complain about that sort of thing since everyone has responsibilities.. but it kind of sucks when your responsibilities overtake hobbies or what you're passionate about? With that said, it was a little bit more exciting this time to take a second look at everything that arrived in January and February and I'm a lot more appreciative of what I'm able to afford. I fear sometimes that people look at these posts as excessive, or at my collection as a whole to be a bit much.. but it keeps me happy, so I think that's what is important at the end of it all!

Anyhow! As usual, everything in this haul has either been purchased from Otamart/Yahoo! Auctions, or Aitai☆Kuji! Aside from a few Nitotan's which I purchased on Rakuten this time and the Funko Pops, which I have a little story about, but those were purchase from Popcultcha through a non-Japanese based proxy.. which I highly suggest you do not do.

If you happen to enjoy this, I've got a bunch more loot hauls which you can check out by clicking "Previous Loot" just a few lines down, you'll get another chance at the end of this haul so you don't have to scroll all the way back up here! Same goes for "Next Loot" which I'm sure will take you to at least a few more hauls I've made more recently, if you're reading this in the future!

Text & Photo Heavy!
My hauls tend to be quite a long read since I usually have a bunch to show off. I've tried to condense many items into as little photos as possible, but I do like to showcase certain things I have an interesting story/background information for, or just individual items I like that I think deserve the spotlight! Keep in mind that the captions are just for flavor, feel free to simply scroll through the images if you like!

I apologize for the longer intro this time, I won't bore you any longer!
Let's get into the loot!

Nendoroid - Ochaco Uraraka

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398750.png

So, this is sort of a big one for me! Maybe the most anticipated item in my collection up to this point? Ochaco Uraraka is my favorite character both in BNHA, and really any series. Period. Take a look at my collection, my profile, whatever, it won't take long for you to see just how dedicated to her I am! Upon the announcement of her Nendoroid, I was ecstatic, but ever since final product images surfaced I have been on the fence about this Nendoroid. Even now owning her, I haven't budged much. I could just be hyper-critical or feel like she deserves more because I'm such a fan of her, but I've got quite a few things to say about her so get ready to read it all.. or just skip past it if you're not that interested, either way is fine.

Positives!

First, I'd like to point out the highlights of this figure before getting into my personal gripes so it doesn't seem overwhelming negative from the get-go. Goodsmile absolutely nailed her design in Nendoroid form. Her sculpt is beautiful and translated her design so, so well! Her hair, smile, eyes, and hero outfit look spot-on. She has a pretty nice range of articulated parts between her hands, arms, legs, and of course neck joint. They opted not to give her a torso joint like the main three boys, but none of the other BNHA Nendoroids that have been shown off or released beyond Todoroki (at least as of now) have this. It does make her a bit stiffer and doesn't allow her to get a huge variety of action poses, but it keeps her design sleek and I don't think it's that big of a detriment as it is to a character like Tsuyu. Her switchable helmet hair piece looks amazing, and while I loathe them, I think that her action word text accessory is the best of the bunch and looks great alongside her.
_______________________________________________________

I think that's all the positives? Basically, summed up.. she looks very nice! But now we have to get into the things that really crush my enthusiasm about this Nendoroid. Uraraka most defining qualities as a character, in my opinion, is her range of expression, determination, and enthusiasm. Her huge eyes, ear to ear smile, and bubbly cheeks make it easy to communicate her character so much through expression alone, both in very bold ways but also some subtlety too! Stripping her of this vibrancy in the way she presents herself misses the mark of who she is as a character. There are arguments to be made about whether or not she is a bland character from a story perspective, but one thing she absolutely is NOT is a bland character from a personality perspective. This is really where Good Smile dropped the ball.

I know it is more commonplace with Nendoroids to not include very much in terms of accessories nowadays. With a how big of a series BNHA is, and the amount of memorable characters, dropping $60 on potentially dozens of releases would end up being fairly expensive and probably result in less profit if costs aren't cut somewhere to make them just a bit more affordable, making it more likely you get a fair amount of them rather than pick and choose some of your favorites. Still, I think it is a huge disservice to some characters and makes them feel incomplete? Very much the case with Uraraka.

Negatives!

In total, she comes with two extra faceplates, an action text bubble, a separate hair/helmet piece, one extra set of hands, and a special pair of connected arm/hand piece. The hair/helmet piece, while very nice I'd consider almost essential to complete the look considering this is her Hero outfit. The arm/hand piece is also a cool addition, allowing you to recreate her signature pose, same with her switchable fists which can be used in all sorts of different ways depending on the pose. I've mentioned this before but I really hate that excluding Shigaraki's, every BNHA Nendoroid has included one of these text bubbles as an accessory. It's very iconic to the series aesthetic, and they don't look terrible but are honestly an extremely lackluster and boring inclusion in my opinion?

The biggest issue I have are the two expressions they chose to include aside from her standard faceplate. Her big round eyes are only present in one of the three, being her standard one.. why this is the case, when it is the most prominent feature of her face.. I have no clue. I don't think they are unforgivably terrible, the big smile is cute actually, but when you consider all the other possibilities it's just so disappointing! Anger, shock, surprise, sadness, confusion, determination, flustered, dizzy.. I think any of these are better suited for her facial features, and do a lot more to make her distinct! I'm not even entirely sure what the other faceplate is meant to convey? Is it her general sheepishness around Midoriya, or a reference to that scene where she talks about wanting money? I guess it could be both depending on perspective, but it's just so subdued that it confuses me what the intention even is!

I'm sorry for rambling so long with no photo in-between to break apart the text, but I honestly had so much trouble posing her for even one photo and making it look interesting enough on her own, and even then I used an accessory from Kirby's Nendoroid just to add something. Little bits of debris/rocks, her flip phone, a thumbs-up hand piece.. these are all just VERY little things that could have been included to give her a bit of interest and character, but sadly we got none of it. I may sound nitpicky or just far too wishful, but I feel like she really wasn't handled with care. They gave her a few things that resemble her likeness but didn't make this Nendoroid unmistakably Ochaco.
It's such a shame.

Conclusion?

I still love her, I couldn't be happier with how she looks using the standard pieces. But the different poses & individuality of each character is what sets Nendoroids apart, what I'm sure many would consider their main appeal! Half of that is missing for me.

Sorry, you expected a loot haul, not a review!

Nendoroid - Tomura Shigaraki
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398749.png

I'll try to keep this a lot more short and sweet, I definitely don't have as much to say about this Nendoroid anyways.

While the chibi-style Nendoroids have doesn't quite fit Shigaraki, making him look a bit strange.. they made him equal parts creepy and cute! The excessive detailing around his crusty little lips and squinty, bloodshot eyes looks great. His hair has a great shaggy, matted look. I really love the detailing on the bigger hands that cover the back of his head, and face when you switch out the front hair piece, as well as the smaller ones that litter his torso, including the miniature face mask he can hold instead of wear! I prefer his freaky, sinister smiling faceplate with diluted irises over his calmer, neutral one.

I apologize for once again not showing off any other poses with this Nendoroid, truthfully there isn't too much you can do with him either, and he doesn't come with a vast amount of accessories.. in fact aside from hands and faceplates, all of them are just other hands that attach to him.. I felt like any sort of pose I did for him wasn't distinct enough from any of the poses shown off on his product page, so just went with one I liked and didn't bother to take any other shots of him.

You might be wondering why I don't have such a problem with Shigaraki suffering from very similar issues to Uraraka, and aside from just not being as passionate about the character, I do have some valid reasoning for not complaining. Until recently, Shigaraki as a character hadn't been explored in BNHA too heavily, despite being the main villain. He was always sort of one-note, evil to his core, sorta psychopath. Even in Vol. 24 of the manga where we really get to know a bit more about him, and where I started to appreciate him as a character a lot more.. there isn't much to build off of, at least in terms of a Nendoroid.

He has his hands, that's really all he needs. What else would you give him, maybe something cracked and decaying to hold onto? Or a baseplate that's beginning to crack as a pre-order item? A Kurogiri style warp-gate to attach his torso to, making him pop out? Sure, those actually all sound really cool.. but they aren't essential to him. I feel like simplicity is better suited for Shigaraki, it's unfortunate his quirk isn't represented somehow in the figure, but I feel like that's a hard concept to convey clearly with a Nendoroid. He's ominous, shadowy, a bit unsettling with his leering gaze and reaching fingers.. I think that's all he needs to be.

Boy Meets... Ichiban Kuji
Overhaul & Deku + Eri


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398748.png

On a whim I decided to buy Overhauls Kuji prize figure since it actually looked fairly nice. His mask has some sweet detailing to it, overall his outfit and pose have a lot of personality too. It wasn't super expensive and at the time Season 4 of the anime was beginning to air (obviously) and Chisaki was beginning to catch my attention as a character. I actually completely skipped over this arc in the manga because I wanted to experience as much of it as I could fresh in the anime. I was spoiled on a few of the big things, but the impact of other stuff I didn't know about was well worth it, including getting to learn about Chisaki, Eri, The Big 3, Nighteye, Fatgum- the whole cast of new characters!.

Buying Overhauls lead me into also buying Midoriya, if only for the miniature Eri that was included with him! I think Midoriya's figure is actually really nice as well, specifically how his hair is sculpted, but I also really like his iron soles and face too! Eri is absolutely precious, I opted for a more scenic showcase of these three, rather than a focused close-up.. so the perspective makes their scale a bit unclear. Eri is absolutely dwarfed by both of them, no bigger than Midoriya's leg. It's kind of hilarious how tiny she is, but I'm actually super fond of it!

I actually think Eri is the perfect scale and stylized closely enough to how Nendoroids look, that she'd fit in seamlessly with a Midoriya, potentially even Mirio or Overhaul Nendoroid if we ever get one. I'm extremely happy with these three as a whole, but specifically Eri. For such a tiny additional mini-figure, she has a great amount of detail and looks wonderful!

WCF - My Hero Academia Vol. 4
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398746.png

I talked about really disliking this set of figures previously when I showed off Vol. 3, and I'm happy to say my opinion has improved a bit! I'm still super disappointed that we didn't just get Kendo, Monoma, and Tetsutetsu in their Hero outfits, and I won't outlive my mistake of buying two of this set by accident.. but they do have a bit of charm. Except Bakugo's, I hate his figure so much.

While almost all of them look off-model and too heavily stylized, I really think Kendo and Monoma look wonderful. I'm not sure if I like Tetsutetsu, something about him looks a bit too off for me to be certain I do, but I think I like him? Todoroki is a complete babyface again, and Midoriya looks so off-model, but it actually resembles how Horikoshi used to draw Midoriya sometimes before his style developed into something a bit more consistent and refined.. and for that I like him? Plus his stiff pose is just funny. But yeah, Bakugo looks god awful.

Apologies for Midoriya and Todoroki being so blurry, I couldn't get them all focused and I felt like priority should be taken with the 1-B kids since they're kind of the highlight of the set.

Also.. yeah, I bought a second set of these on accident, I haven't opened any of them, they're all sealed. I'm planning on selling them as a set eventually so if you're interested feel free to shoot me a message or something!

WCF - My Hero Academia Vol. 5
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398747.png

Onto the MUCH better and absolutely my favorite set so far, Vol. 5! Not only do I just love all the characters here, but I feel like the heavily stylized look fits a lot of them much better given their bolder, contrasting designs!

Amajiki and Mirio I'm really not fond of, they both look really bizarre even if the detailing on them is quite intricate.. their faces are what ruins it. A really nice detail I only noticed after receiving them however is that Mirio's cape is completely ripped in this figure, and in Vol. 6 Eri is holding the remains of the tattered cloth!

I honestly can't decide which is my favorite out of the remaining four though. I really love Nejire's stunning periwinkle blue, and her adorable wide-eyed smile.. Fat Gum is an absolute unit, standing proud and bold, presenting his gut with a big smile! In contrast, Nighteye is so lanky and tall, I looooove his dorky pose and awkward expression. He might actually be my favorite. Finally, Ryuko looks amazing! I honestly did not think we'd get such a good looking figure in a WCF set? Of Ryuko too, a character who will most likely NEVER get another figure? I love how she's looking off elsewhere, like she doesn't really want to be involved.. shy, but still naturally photogenic!

It's honestly an amazing set, I'm hoping others who normally dislike these trading figures will agree with me too? You have to admit that they just look pretty good together! That's what I love about these WCF's sets, is you get a whole bunch of characters, some more obscure ones, and they're all able to stand side-by-side in a similar scale and style!

BNHA Funko Pop Exclusives
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398744.png

So, I have a little story about all of these. I'm not going to go into tremendous detail because I've already written so much in the figure portion alone this loot haul, and for those of you who actually read everything, I don't want you to spend forty minutes here.. but essentially I thought that I could cheat the system, and I ended up getting burned for it!

So, I found an Australian site that sold all of the BNHA exclusives for their regular retail price. I thought, amazing! Only issue is, they didn't ship them outside of Australia. So, with hardly any research I tried to find a proxy company that would ship something from Australia to Canada. What I ended up finding and choosing was a website called Parcl, which I highly suggest you do not us!.. ever!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398743.png

Essentially I sent my order, and adding the costs of the proxy service itself with the price of the Pop's on that site, I was shaving off around $75 compared to the only other place I could find all of them together which was eBay. Of course, starry-eyed at the clever deal I constructed, I went ahead and proceeded without looking into or questioning this site. It was handled by individuals, so you'd have to work out your order with whichever courier you decided to deal with from a list. I chose the best offer and didn't think much of it.

A few of the Pop's were on pre-order which I didn't think to be a problem, but regardless I contacted my proxy to asking if this was alright, giving them an estimate of up to three months to wait until everything arrived, offering to keep them updated if needed. They ignored my request to keep them updated which should have been sign number one, and instead notified me it would be a $0.30 storage fee. For up to three months? That's less than $30 in total, I'm still saving a bit!- Is what I thought..

Anyways I checked the site every few days just to see if I received any word, but a few months came and went, nothing. I figured they'd just let me know when everything arrived I decided it was time I checked out the orders to see where they were at. To my surprise, the second package including everything remaining in the order arrived a month and a half prior, and I wasn't notified. Admittedly, it is sort of my fault but I deal with a lot of individual orders and EVERY other proxy I have used and know of ALWAYS notifies you when a package arrives.

So, I messaged them asking what's up. Not only did they receive my package a month and a half prior, but they chose not to notify me because I "advised" it could take three months, despite them having the full order. Now, they weren't only charging me $0.30 for the first package, but for both packages. Along with this, additional charges for the weight of the package (which I do think was my fault) added up to an additional $110!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398745.png

I contacted the site support explaining the situation. Three days later I received a reply from support telling me that they contacted the proxy agent and they verified the package arrived just a few days ago. Huh? I contacted them back explaining how that completely contradicted the charges and provided evidence. I was told by support to contact the proxy agent directly on the matter. Amazing customer support.

So, I did that and was immediately met with a hostile response in retaliation. At this point, I'd dug a bit into the proxy agent's reviews and saw that it looked like their reputation on the site was being boosted by a bot, along with the site itself having their social media on all platforms deactivated. Kind of coming to terms with the fact that I'd most likely been scammed, what was I to do now? Either fork over an additional $110 to possibly see these Pop's I didn't even want that much? Or bail, and lose the $160 I already paid?

I decided to just grit my teeth and do it. While I was definitely scammed, I at the very least received my Pop's. I'll certainly never do business with that site again, truthfully I could probably file a dispute with Paypal even now for how I was treated but I went through so much of a headache already I don't even know if it's worth it. Just had to swallow my mistake and live with it!

Now with ALL of that out of the way, even though these Pop's haunt me in some ways.. I do think these are some of the best exclusives released. Dabi, Stain, and Toga are my favorites by far. I really love Mirio and Metallic All Might's as well though! All for One and Shigaraki are strange-looking, but I guess they're kinda cool too.

That being said, I'm probably done collecting these exclusives for the most part aside from one or two that I really like in the future. If wasn't clear as well, do not use Parcl. Popcultcha, where I bought the Pop's from, is fine and legitimate. Though I would not trust using Parcl as a proxy!

Just a few tiny trading figures, and I promise.. no more walls of text!
BNHA Nitotan gacha figures
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398741.png

I really let these guys slip me by! They used to litter the pages of Otamart for only a couple hundred yen, but now they're a bit harder to find.. I'm assuming because the gacha machines have been replaced in most areas of Japan. They're super cute! I got Uraraka's a looooooooong time ago, and she's always been stationed at my computer desk right below my monitor.. but I finally got her a few friends!

The only one I don't have to complete the set is Midoriya. However, the did release a second set of these very recently with Toga, Dabi, Shigaraki, and different versions of Bakugo and Midoriya.. I should pick up a few of those before they get scarce sometime soon here as well.

Heading into plushies!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398740.png

I guess it's only right that I transition from tiny Nitotan capsule gacha figures, into the real plush thing! I really didn't plan on getting almost this entire set of winter coat Nitotan's, I definitely wanted Uraraka, Kirishima, Todoroki and Iida.. but I ended up getting everyone except Midoriya- once again. Sorry Deku! They were just such a good price, brand-new on Rakuten. It was my first time using Rakuten through my proxy (From Japan), but it was super easy and just like ordering from any other online store..

Anyways, I love them all so much, their matching outfits and bold colors beside one-another look amazing. I hardly ever get a full set of Nitotan either so this was super cool. Midoriya's was the price of Kaminari and Iida's combined, so I decided it was way more worth it to get those two instead.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398738.png

Some Jump Festa 2020 BNHA Nitotan's! I've never before bought two of the same Nitotan, but I saw someone selling Kirishima's for less than half the regular price after buying the first one so I couldn't miss that deal, especially when Jump Festa Nitotan always goes up in price! For the same reason, I may or may not have got two extra Uraraka's which are still yet to arrive. I love the outfits so much in this set, based off the second-anniversary art outfits.. Uraraka has a beautiful bow on the back of hers which maybe I can show when the others I purchased arrive? I want to get Tsuyu and Kaminari still, I just don't know when since I haven't found a good deal on Yahoo! Auctions or anything.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398739.png

Some more Jump Festa BNHA Nitotan's, older ones! Bakugo's is from 2019, and the rest are from 2018! I feel so blessed to have any of them, let alone all of them in such a short amount of time! It's not like they're impossible to find, but getting them at a good price is so hard, especially new. Shockingly I did just that! Both Bakugo and Kirishima were from the same seller, but different listings with a few can badges and such. They came out to be roughly the same retail price as they were originally. Amazingly, Uraraka and Iida were about half the price they were originally retailed for, completely new in their bag with the shared tag included!

The ones from JF 2018, in their school uniforms, are some of my very favorite Nitotan's I now own. I'm not sure what it is, but they just all look beautiful! While I like Bakugo's too, I really can't get over how his belly sort of hangs out in this design. He looks like he has a beer gut or something! I do love his expression and the iconic outfit though. I'm so happy with these four!!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398736.png

Even more Nitotan's!? Yeah, I got quuuite a few this haul. A tiny UA training uniform Midoriya, and a big Todoroki that I'm oh so happy about. Right when I started really collecting and didn't have much of an income, I ended up getting Uraraka's bigger training uniform Nitotan, and while I wanted Kirishima's badly.. I didn't really have the money for it! Since then, I've always wanted to find more of these bigger ones but they're difficult to come across, especially new! But somehow I managed to find a Todoroki a few months ago in his original bag, for ¥1000 cheaper than his original retail price! Midoriya's tiny version was also an okay deal, only ¥1100 brand-new too. so I just got some amazing deals on Nitotan's this haul? I like, doubled my collection.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398735.png

The plush deals don't stop there either! I ended up getting this sitting Midoriya Movic plush for only ¥1000, less than half it's original price.. brand-new as well. The other two might look familiar if you've seen a few of my previous hauls. In the middle is a POMMOP plush exclusive to Jump Festa 2020 that looks extremely similar to ITEM #779719 which was also exclusive to Jump Festa, but in 2019.. except this one is nowhere near as cute. It's still cute though!

The other is of course a Tomonui plush, but this variant has Uraraka sitting and she's in her school uniform! I'm not positive, but I think these Tomonui were sort of exclusive limited-time releases for the Heroes Rising movie? Included in the set aside from Uraraka was Midoriya, Todoroki, and Bakugo. I didn't really get a good deal on either of these, I bought the POMMOP one on Aitai☆Kuji.. which, she was expensive.. and the Tomonui one I got for like $15 on Yahoo! Auctions. I thought it was worth it since I didn't know if she'd be impossible to find in the future if they were limited releases? But recently I found one for literally ¥100 on Yahoo! Auctions, so now I'm going to have two since they still seem hard to come across, I wasn't passing up on a second one so cheap!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398734.png

..and one of these cute can pouch mini plushies from Jump Shop! I searched for such a long time to try and find Uraraka's or Tsuyu's on Yahoo! Auctions cheap, instead I found Todoroki's and Bakugo's for a fair price and got them.. which I showed last haul, but after giving up, completely caving, buying her and Tsuyu for full price on Aitai☆Kuji, I found Uraraka like a month later on Yahoo! Auctions for ¥300.. I should have held out longer! I can't cancel that order, so now I'm just going to have two of her when those ones ship out with other stuff in May I believe? But.. I'm not really complaining. I really love the design of these!
Sitting atop his empire of pink plushies..

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398733.png

Okay, that's a LITTLE BIT overkill, right? Amazingly, and thankfully I didn't spend a miniature fortune just for a bunch of Hatsume and Ashido Tsum's. Excluding Midoriya, unbelievably I paid only ¥501 for 18 of these. Not per, for the entire lot. I'm not really sure HOW? But I stumbled across two separate actions one night, both bundles of 9 for each corresponding character. Hatsume's bidding started at ¥500, while Ashido's started at ¥1.. and nobody else bid! It wasn't like, super high shipping costs or anything either, in fact it was relatively cheap. So, I guess it was just an absolute fluke?

I have no idea what I'm going to do with them all. I feel like I should sell them since they're brand-new and I don't need all of these. At the same time, my heart is telling me to keep the spoils of my late-night auction scouring. I even checked back on the seller a week later and they had MORE Tsum bundles super cheap up for auction, but they wouldn't accept bids from proxy's anymore so I couldn't get any more! Shame too, the other bundle was Kirishima's.

Midoriya I also got for an amazing deal, I never thought I'd get another one of these special Tsum's you only get bundled in from buying a box of all the characters unless I actually bought a box in the future. Usually, these guys are close to ¥2500 on their own, but once again, late-night auction hunting, I managed to find and win him for just ¥680!

Surprise! Something non-BNHA!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398742.png

I'm actually a huge Love Live fan as well. I'm super active in both fandoms, though BNHA absorbs a lot more of my attention.. and money. I still love my girls though, and I thought it was about time I get a few Nesoberi's since I've been longing for at least one for a while now!

I got a few of my best girls! These were all from the same seller on Yahoo! Auctions, pretty cheap with their tags included! I think I paid like ¥600 for both Nico and Riko, and then ¥900 for the set of three Yoshiko's.. I much prefer these tiny Neso's over the bigger ones, mostly due to how much space they take up, but I also just think these small ones are much cuter? I love those Instagram & Twitter where people bring their Neso's around and take pictures of them in different places too!

My favorite is tied between Nico and Riko, I can't decide which I like more. Nico is my best girl in Muse, followed closely by Maki.. admittedly I'm a waaaay bigger fan of Aqours and Yohane used to be my best girl, with Riko almost tying her for first but I still considered her second. After a while though I betrayed both of them and Chika climbed from the lower/middle half of my list all the way to the top? I felt bad and couldn't dethrone them as my top two for the longest time, but eventually had to face the music and rank her above them both. So I've still got to get myself a Chika Nesoberi too!

Now a few acrylic stands!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398731.png

Words can not describe how much I love this artwork of these two. They've just both got such a comfy feeling to them in their winter-wear, their expressions are so soft.. Uraraka is all like╰(。•́ ヮ•̀。)ง while Kirishima just watches, enjoying his meal. I love it. They look SO good together!!

These acrylics I'm imagining are going to be extremely difficult to find in the future too since these were released exclusively for a Namco Namjatown collab, and the similar Namco J-World collab merch from way back in 2016 is literally impossible to find. I wasn't part of the fandom back then and I'll forever loathe myself for not knowing how much I needed any of the stuff from that collab. All I'll ever realistically maybe be able to obtain is a few of the can badges.. but ITEM #545020 and ITEM #545030 will forever be my #1 grail items.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398728.png

Some very huge acrylics of two 1-B girls, Tsunotori and Komori! I wish they weren't in their UA training uniforms and instead just normal student uniforms.. but other than that, these are super cute. I paid ¥300 for each, so pretty cheap.. when they arrived they were in their original packaging and I forgot I got either of them and thought I bought blind bags? So when I opened them up I was pretty happy with what I thought were blind pulls.. I realized a bit afterward that I actually just purchased them both.

Komori might be tied for my best girl in 1-B, I like Kodai too. I don't care for Tsunotori that much, but I will admit this art of her is adorable.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398730.png

Now this time I actually did get amazing blind bag luck! I purchase two of these as blind bags, and one of them knowingly.. my two pulls were Uraraka and Kirishima!? I literally couldn't have got more perfect luck, considering I just wanted either of the two! Edgeshot I got on his own since nobody seemed to want him and he was selling cheap everywhere, but I like him and I can barely think of any other merch of him that exists.

You'll see a bit later, despite my amazing luck I wanted to ensure that I got Uraraka's, so before these arrived I actually bought her separately with a few other items from a seller. So I have two, but I probably won't ever display the other one and maybe end up selling it?

These were also Heroes Rising collaboration items from Toei Kyoto Studio Park, which is an extremely cool amusement park in Japan based around the Edo period!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398727.png

I really got some amazing stuff that I'm super happy with this haul, almost every photo has something I adore in it.. a couple more Uraraka acrylics! Starting from the left is a sort of interestingly designed, Heroes Rising collab acrylic. The collab was for Tokyo Dome and there were a few different versions of this artwork used in various sizes and shapes, I'm not sure which I like the most but I definitely favor smaller acrylics so this one I'm pretty fond of! Though I would also like the full art one.

In the middle is an Ichiban Cafe acrylic. I adore the white, pink and yellow color scheme on this one! I don't know why but whenever Ichiban Cafe does collabs, their stuff is a bit of a pain to track down! On the right is just a Pita! raincoat acrylic stand, I do really adore this Pita! artwork too, I got the keychain so long ago and have it hung up on the corkboard in my room but haven't looked at it in a while so this was a nice refresher. I really don't care for these mini acrylics reusing the Pita! artwork though, I much prefer just having the keychain itself and that's it, but I got this included in some Uraraka bulk.. from the same seller as those Tsum's.. also for ¥1.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398726.png

Here's a few new nametags, some of the different styled ones for Iida, Tsuyu, and Kirishima. I don't like these as much as the other ones in my collection, but they're still unique and I'm sure will look good in a display when I get around to that.

Komori! Two items of the girl in one haul? Neither are in the database currently either. I don't have anything else for her, given how minor of a character she is.. there really isn't much of anything else for her. I'm really thrilled they decided to do these nametags for the 1-B students, but I've found zero aside from this one of Komori since they released. I need more. At least Kendo or Kodai, maybe Awase or Fukidashi too?..

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398732.png

Before transitioning fully into general merch stuff, I'm super thrilled to show off these mini "Hero Macadamia Lattes" sold at LAWSON convenience stores around Japan to promote Heroes Rising. In total there were five variants of these. At the time these were all that I could find to purchase, and I was more than happy getting Kirishima's and thought Todoroki's was super cool too.. but of course, I really wanted Uraraka's too. Funnily, literally a few nights ago I found an auction for the entire set and won it for only ¥200! Extremely excited about that!
Okay, general merch stuff!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398721.png

A huge selection of new Pita! keychains this haul. It's hard to pick favorites, but Midoriya and Kirishima's room tour ones at the bottom, along with literally all of the ones where they're chowing down on food are so precious.
Even Mineta.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398720.png

Not only did I get some Nitotan gacha figures, and a whole lot of Nitotan plushies this haul, but a pretty large amount of rubber straps too! All but Jiro and Iida's are new. The bottom row are a bit older, all wearing their second-anniversary art outfits, and the middle row are brand new from Jump Festa 2020, sporting their Survival Camp art outfits. I'm a huge fan of the different characters you don't normally see at the bottom row, All Might, Aizawa, Tokoyami.. Midoriya also looks great and I love his big expression! Other than that, Kirishima in a winter jacket is so cute, and I love Uraraka's as expected.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398719.png

A few rubber keychains from the same Kuji as the Overhaul, Midoriya, and Eri figures from earlier. "Boy Meets..."! I really love these too, specifically the colors on them, Eri and Nejire's look wonderful. This Kuji overall is definitely one of my favorites.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398718.png

These are the last of the rubber straps! I got a fair few Tokoyami items this haul since I bought a small set of stuff, I'm happy to have more of him and I love his strap on the left where he's all cuddled up to Dark Shadow.. the rest are from previous Kuji's, I have like three of each Uraraka strap so I'd really like to stop getting them, but the Tsuyu ones are cute! The rest of these also came in a small set with a few more items.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398722.png

A large amount of mostly Uraraka bulk. The duplicate stuff on the bottom two rows were all from that Tsum seller that I purchased in a lot for ¥1. The knitting Uraraka can badges were in a set with some other things along with Tsuyu's. The new Tokyo Hands artwork is fantastic, I actually have a few acrylics coming so I can enjoy the full art though! Uraraka in a suit? Yes please! She looks so good!! New artwork exclusive to JF2020. On the top row are both the normal version and glitter rare version of these random trading can badges which were cheap! The only other thing I'll point out is the right Toga can badge is actually an Animate exclusive purchase bonus for buying the Japanese DVD/Blu-ray of BNHA Season 3 Vol. 6. I've really wanted it for a long time, but they're usually sold for like ¥1500 which isn't worth it to me, I found this one for about ¥600 though!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398723.png

Moooore bulk, this time of the boys- aside from that extra Uraraka acrylic I mentioned earlier. Really the highlight of this stuff is the tiny Midoriya can badge in the top left corner! I hunted these Uraraka's like mad two months ago and was finally able to find one to add to my collection. Bakugo was by no means hard to obtain during the time, and you could find Midoriya somewhat easily too, but I really didn't like it enough to purchase back a bit more than a year ago. Since then they've become a lot more uncommon, but I found one that popped up for ¥800 a few months back and decided to grab it! Now I just need All Might to complete the set, and I've only ever seen one of him for way too high a price.

Other than that, all the Kirishima stuff is nice, I actually like the square All for One can badge quite a bit, and the Bakugo keychain is pretty old. The back has an awesome design too which I'll show you, now!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398724.png

Pretty cool!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398725.png

It probably seems a bit bizarre that this keychain is on it's own, but I got this last haul and forgot to take a picture of it then, so I kept it out to include with stuff in this haul and mention it was from the last one.. then I forgot again! It wasn't until I put everything else away that I remembered it, and I felt like it was such a big effort to put everything back into place just to throw this dogtag keychain in there.. that I just took a photo of it by itself. Happy to have new ones of these anytime I get them, though I don't have many left to obtain! Only the hard ones.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398716.png

Two super old Banpresto crane game prizes! These are some of Uraraka's earliest pieces of merch, from 2016. They're pretty strange, little bag tag keychains. I'm not sure why the packaging on them is so big.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398717.png

These are also pretty bizarre but super cool and I knew that I needed to have them! I'm not sure if you could just buy these or had to obtain them specially somehow, but I think these were exclusively available at Tokyo Comic Con.. or some other convention which was advertising the Bandai Spirits "King of Artist" Bakugo and Midoriya figures seen ITEM #874624 and ITEM #874625.

They're such strange keychains because it isn't like illustrations used on the boxes of anything that they turned into keychains, just straight-up promotional shots of the figures that they turned into keychains? I love it! I love these weird pieces of merch, they're just exciting to me for whatever reason! So unique!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398715.png

Here are a few gorgeous character pins! I've been on the hunt for the top one for a while, from the original set of BNHA character pins.. such a cute manga panel of Uraraka, and it looks fantastic translated into a pin! The bottom two are equally amazing, just recently released for JF2020 exclusively of Uraraka and Kirishima in their Fantasy AU art. The golden border around all of these pins looks so nice!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398714.png

Last year I showed off a BNHA Jump Shop exclusive, limited Christmas can badge and cardboard tag from 2018, this year I've got the 2019 version to show off! It's actually a can badge.. ornament.. keychain? I really like how they did the glitter effect on this can badge, with little specks and stars, it's much different from any other glitter can badges I have. There were similar cardboard tags this year, but I wasn't able to get my hands on one for BNHA sadly! Now, I'm not entirely sure about information on the sticker also in this photo, I'm pretty sure it was given out at an event but I have no clue which event or when!
A few 365 days stickers and a birthday can badge up next!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398713.jpeg

Just Aizawa by his lonesome this time around. I like the colors and artwork they chose for him, but don't have much else to say.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398712.png

A few very nice 365 days stickers! I'm shocked we got Curious of all people, but I guess just a month prior they released a Vlad King 365 sticker.. sometimes they make some weird choices? I really like Bakugo and Dabi's, Aizawa's looks better than his can badge in my opinion, the Christmas Midoriya one is absolutely adorable and I love the background.

Finally the Jump Festa 2020 visitors "Thank You" 365 sticker. These ones are sort of special since only attendees to the event can obtain them, and I assume it's the same way as normal.. meaning only 50 of each exist I guess? Some of these were ridiculously priced, I was scared of not getting one after collecting EVERY 365 sticker last year, so I overpaid a bit at ¥2300, and the lowest I saw one was like ¥1600 afterward. Still, this isn't the last set of 365 days stickers from 2019 to complete the full year yet! I have them all ordered, but the last few are yet to be in my possession! Next haul though, I'm certain it will be complete.

Moving onto paper, cards, bromides, all that!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398711.png

These are so cool! Sold exclusively at Tokyo Comic Con 2019 by Ario, the company that made the BNHA dogtags and nametags, as well as lots of other cool merch! They're literally my favorite company in the BNHA merch game.. I think these were just purchase benefits if you spent more than ¥1100 at their booth or something? I'm not sure if you could pick the character you wanted or not though. Six characters in total, Midoriya, Kirishima, Bakugo, Todoroki, and these two! I got both of these for like ¥600 & ¥900 which was awesome! I wanted Kirishima's too, but his was selling for like ¥2500? So I was like, yep, no way.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398709.png

You thought those were cool? Well, they were, but so are these! QR/NFC(?) cards that I have no clue how to use! They have QR codes on the back which I think are individual use? But after scanning them it brought me to a website for the Heroes Rising movie, with instructions that I shoddily used Google Translate to figure out, and it essentially told me to tap the cards against my phone to unlock something I guess? But I tried all of them and none did anything. My phone has NFC functionality, but I'm not even sure these have NFC chips. They seem too thin, but I'm not really sure how that stuff works so maybe they do and I'm just to dumb to figure it out! It may not even be for your phone, and something else entirely. If anyone else can make more sense of it, be my guest. Here is the site.

I'm not exactly sure why they reused the cake art for these either since it seems to have nothing to do with the original line of merch and is something else entirely.. but I'm more than happy they did since I love being able to have this entire set of art in sleek, color-coded cards? I wish they did something like this more often, not bromides or cardboard either, like actual plastic cards. These hardly cost me anything either for the entire set! It was like ¥800 in total.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398704.png

A bunch of glittery cards and bromides. The shatter glittered cards of Kirishima, Iida, and Bakugo are all from wherever those Toga, Mr. Compress, and Shigaraki cards from the last haul are, which I'm still assuming is a cafe collab. I used really dislike this artwork of Uraraka from AGF 2019, but I got this bromide as a free gift with my Nendoroid orders from Aitai☆Kuji, and it grew on me a whole lot!

Both the Pop☆Step and Crawler cards are super cool to have as well, I've been getting more into Vigilantes, these two were my favorite from the start and always what I look forward to every new chapter! I wish Vigilantes got more love, it really does deserve it.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398705.png

Some more bromides! The Ryuko agency girls at the top, such beautiful art of the three released for JF2020! On the left are Tokyo Hands bromides, and the bottom are some anime screencap postcards. I really like the League of Villains one.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398707.png

Quickly here is a Shikishi board of Yaoyorozu's Tokyo Hands art, and a mini Shikishi of Midoriya that was given out at an event, though I have no clue which event.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398706.png

Here are some super awesome cards from the "Fighting Heroes feat. Smash Rising" Kuji that happened at some point last year. A few Two Heroes movie coasters which I love dearly, and one of Tsuyu from the original Karaoke no Tetsujin collab, which you really don't see the art for that much.. I think I have one can badge of Uraraka's art from that collab, and literally nothing else.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398708.png

A few more coasters from a more very recent Ichiban Cafe collab, the same one which the Uraraka acrylic from earlier is from. The two keychains at the bottom are also from the collab, I picked up Uraraka because of course I did, and one of the Ketsubutsu Academy kids because they have like zero merch.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398689.jpeg

Tokyo Metro had a very cool promotional event right before the premiere of Season 4.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398690.png

I guess you'd get one of these fliers with various BNHA advertisements and take it around to different parts of the metro to collect stamps of six characters!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398692.png
(Front)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398691.png
(Back)

I don't know if this is the case, but my assumption is that after collecting all six you'd be awarded with the clear file on the left! On the right is obviously just Yaoyorozu's Tokyo Hands clear file.. which I've now shown three different pieces of merch using that art, so I don't really need to tell you!

Just a bit of media, then I'll wrap everything up with Hirobato and Trading Card Game stuff!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398701.png

I'm guessing this was included inside of a Weekly Shonen Jump release from around the time of Heroes Risings release, otherwise I have no idea where you would have obtained this. It's a little pamphlet with Bakugo on one side, Midoriya on the other, showing off lots of artwork from the manga, art spreads, Weekly Shonen Jump covers.. just a whole bunch of art, with a short retelling of both their stories so far from the beginning of the story. I felt like it was excessive to take pictures of every page, there wasn't many anyway, while it's all pretty cool, I just took a few photos of both sides covers, some inside pages, and the middle where they meet.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398694.png

On top of that there was another Heroes Rising promotional manga released with Saikyo Jump called "BakuGO" it's basically the same thing as the pamphlet, but focuses a bit more on Bakugo's evolution and just reuses the official manga pages to give a quick recap on important moments for Bakugo & Midoriya throughout the story so far.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398693.png

It came with this super cool poster too! The backside is just the key visual used for Heroes Rising, nothing special so I decided not to show it, but if you've somehow not seen it and are curious, here it is!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398696.png

Just like Two Heroes, Heroes Rising also got a companion manga titled "Vol. R". It has a short story inside about Nine and his team of villains, it gives a very minor backstory to all of them, showing how and why Nine met with a.. familiar face. I don't want to spoil anything! Anyways, other than that it has a few interviews and other info, along with a ton of character sheets for all of Class 1-A and a few others!

Included inside every volume is also a Hawks XR++ Hirobato promotional card! Pretty awesome that they just threw him in there as well!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398697.png

On the backside of the manga is a colored version of the Horikoshi sketch used to tease the movie in it's infancy! I thought it was really awesome to see it return like this. Check it out under the spoiler!
Voir le spoilerCacher le spoiler
Here is what I'm talking about.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/01/01/2357766.png

Also, my movie ticket for Heroes Rising! It truly was something fantastic, I enjoyed it from start to finish even if I felt the beginning was a bit slow, once things amped up and got off the ground, it didn't land until the final climax of the film! So many cute moments, so much to love.. go see it if you have a chance and are even a bit interested, I'm positive you'll love it!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398700.png

The last of these promotional Heroes Rising manga releases is these three special cover versions of Volumes 1, 2, and 3 of the BNHA manga! I really dig how each of these looks, love the different colors and panels spread across each one. Nothing else really special about them though, they're just different cover variants. These were exclusive and limited, but I couldn't exactly pinpoint where exactly and ended up finding about a dozen places that were selling these in Japan.. so I guess they were just kinda distributed to different bookstores all over the place.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398698.png

I got this original copy of BNHA Vol. 1 as well, which I don't need and only bought because it was included in a set with both the Hirobato card (I also already have) and this old bookmark, which I guess at this point I kind of have a fair selection of BNHA bookmarks? I have like.. four or five maybe? Really I just wanted the older art on it to own, since the whole set only cost ¥300. Plus, I'm not sure what you call it but the little sleeve thing around the bottom of the Vol. 1 manga I'm pretty sure is the original release version since it seems to be dated 2016. Kinda cool as well!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398699.jpeg

Here's the back of the bookmark too.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398695.png

Last piece of media! Such a striking, lovely Shonen Jump Weekly cover.. I think that I only love it as much as I do because my two favorites are side-by-side, for the longest time on social media I used them cropped together as my profile pic. Otherwise, it's still some stunning art.
Only three photos left until the end!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398703.png

Two new cases.. well, really a smaller square case that they came out with recently, and a small pouch which reuses and rearranges the art on the case. I absolutely flipped when I saw the pouch on Twitter, they announced it as a limited campaign item or something like that for Halloween.. that artwork of Uraraka and Midoriya is TOO much. I caved and bought it immediately because there was absolutely no way I was missing out on it.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398702.png

Here's the backside of the case and the inside art of the pouch, along with a few Hirobato cards. I have like a dozen of that Midoriya card, unfortunately, it was my other free gift from Aitai☆Kuji with my two Nendoroids. The other ones I bought from the same seller, a set of Mt. Lady birthday cards which costed essentially nothing, and an XR++ version of Jiro's birthday card because I love this art of her! But yeah, that's it for Hirobato this time!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/02/2398710.png

Finally, saving this until the end felt kind of extravagant. If I could sum up this haul in a few words it'd probably be.. "More than a few words, and ridiculous deals." So I left one of the best for last! All of this was won in an auction for ¥500. Everything is sealed, two starter decks and 23 booster packs! Now, for whatever reason the price for Midoriya's starter deck seems to fluctuate between $40-$100 they're both actually worth about ¥2500, so the lower end of that. I'm a bit less sure on the packs, but from what I can see an original series booster pack box is around $50-$60, for 24 packs in total.

So, for ¥500.. I don't think I did that bad! Honestly though, it's pretty crazy that I managed to get all of this for so cheap. I don't think I did that bad! Honestly though, it's pretty crazy that I managed to get all of this for so cheap. I do not plan on selling any of it, but I decided not to open it for this haul either since opening these packs in a video just seemed like way more fun? So HOPEFULLY, really soon here I'll get to work on putting together a YouTube channel where I can do a huge card pack opening, as well as other stuff I'm sure. I have a lot of ideas and have really wanted to start making videos for this hobby as well. Really I just need to be motivated, confident, and proud enough in my ability to create content. I don't just want to throw together rushed videos on a whim every now and then, I want to make stuff that has enough value and quality to warrant it's existence? I've been really inspired lately to do just that though! So maybe that will be something to look forward to in the not so distant future?


With that, this is the end!
I'd like to extend a very sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart for checking out everything I had to show off in this haul! I'm sure these are as much a chore to read through as they are to work on. So congratulations to you as well for making it through! I just hope in the end you enjoyed it and I didn't waste your time!

What can you expect from me next haul? All I can really think of right now is possibly one or two Nendoroids!

But that's about it!
Once more, thank you very much for checking out this haul and I hope that you stop by for another one in the future!

JawbreqkerIl y a 6 mois#76426075They do sound tasty, don't they? I didn't actually get to taste them though, they were shipped empty unfortunately- or possibly, fortunately, since shipping drinks always runs the risk of them leaking. I'm glad someone else thought those keychains were sorta cool too! I love finding unique merch and those are definitely outside of the norm, never really seen anything quite like them!
I did dig a bit more to try and figure out how those cards work which had me stumble across this website for them. From what I can decipher through rough google translations, when taken to the QR code site, you'd tap any of the cards on your phone and a special illustration of Midoriya and Bakugo would pop up! The illustration would then change each time you'd tap a different card, depicting each character growing as heroes. Pretty interesting, though I still wasn't able to get mine to work! I think the reason comes down to possible region differences with my phone maybe not being able to read the data on the cards because it's foreign? Or simply, because the event which these cards were handed out at concluded on January 26th, the functionality for the site no longer works.. which I think would be kinda strange since the site is still up. Total bummer that I still wasn't able to get them to work, either way.
Thank you very much for checking out my haul! I really do appreciate it, and the comment as well!


Yeah and drinks are pretty heavy, so it's also better for the wallet to just get the (cleaned) cups! :) It reminded me of the older Evangelion figure sets that came with canned coffee. Most people were selling them with either cans thrown out or cleaned and empty cans.

I'm not an expert on it, but I would guess that it works similar to a bank card that can be used on the phone and you need the NFC turned on, I have no idea if NFC is region locked though, but that could be it. The website doesn't mention anything about the promotion quitting after a while or anything, strange. Did you take your question to (Google translated) Japanese social media? This seems like something Japanese Twitter users might solve for you. ;)

No problem! :D I used to be pretty active with loot blogs as well and now that I finally have some more free time I hope to pick up doing big shares again as well! ^^ These kinds of blogs get me very motivated!

MaakieIl y a 6 mois#76348997I had to giggle at "Hero Macadamia Lattes"! But that sounds like a pretty nice flavor actually! Did you drink these lattes or were they already shipped as an empty package?
Those keychains with prototype pictures for the figures are super cool! At first I thought they were 3D renders!
I hope you can find out how to work those QR/NFC cards!
Also, impressive loot as always! :)

They do sound tasty, don't they? I didn't actually get to taste them though, they were shipped empty unfortunately- or possibly, fortunately, since shipping drinks always runs the risk of them leaking. I'm glad someone else thought those keychains were sorta cool too! I love finding unique merch and those are definitely outside of the norm, never really seen anything quite like them!

I did dig a bit more to try and figure out how those cards work which had me stumble across this website for them. From what I can decipher through rough google translations, when taken to the QR code site, you'd tap any of the cards on your phone and a special illustration of Midoriya and Bakugo would pop up!

evenstar88Il y a 6 mois#76088894That's some jaw-dropping loot stuff right there! I don't follow BNHA, but I have heard nothing but good things about it - so I will probably check it out when I have a lot of free time in the future ;)
Thanks for sharing!

Ahhahhahh.. "jaw"-dropping. Was that a pun?

Awesome to hear my haul has made you maybe a bit more interested in the series! I'm always curious who checks these out and either doesn't care for BNHA, or has never given it a shot / doesn't know about it!- With how big of a series it's become though, I'd be shocked if there were many on this site who've never heard of it?

Thank you very much for checking it out!

solluxcaptorIl y a 6 mois#76089099Yay, I always look forward to your hauls. I'm amazed by all the detail you put in and I love to see the assortment of BNHA goodies you get, even if I'm not that familiar with the series, your enthusiasm for it really rubs off on me! You got so many good deals too, I especially love the mochi piles, thats crazy! The Funko Pop thing sounds like a total nightmare though... at least, you can imagine your good and bad luck balanced out since you got some great deals? I try to look at things that way myself. I'd love to watch if you made a YouTube channel!
Yeah! We have similar minds, I tried to look at it that way too.. I'm pretty lucky with a lot of the bargains I stumble across, so getting burnt like that wasn't too horrible since I probably easily made up for it with the other deals. If I wasn't trying to get a good deal in the first place it wouldn't have happened anyways. So that's what I get for being cheap! Hahahha.

I think it's sweet that I inspire you a bit, great to hear that I can positively impact you, even just a bit through my posts! We are mutually beneficial to each other in that way I suppose! I'm sure you might have picked up on it since I mentioned to you recently how I enjoyed the card pack openings you used to do, but that sort of inspired and motivated the idea to save those card packs at the end of my haul for a potential video in the future. Thank you for being supportive of the idea too. I noticed you uploaded a February haul on your channel too, I haven't been able to watch yet since I was working on this the last few days but I can't wait to sit down and give it a look!

Thank you for continuing to check these out, your comments always bring me joy!

NaelythIl y a 6 mois#76087803Phew! My Firefox Extension "Mind the Time" informs me that it took me 42 minutes to read this blog in its entirety (and I read quickly)! I always enjoy reading your blogs though, so it was worth it! The amount of dedication you have is so impressive (and I feel like I've commented something like this already--sorry if I have lol).
"Plus, I'm not sure what you call it but the little sleeve thing around the bottom of the Vol. 1 manga"--these are called obi, I'm pretty sure!
Your loot was impressive this time around! I was feeling as though the Nendoroids were disappointing without being able to place my finger on why, and I think you nailed it perfectly! For such a big and action-focused franchise like BNHA, I want more from my Nendoroids, especially with how expensive they are! It's good you still like them, though.
Sorry to hear about your scummy experience with the Australian proxy. :'( I'm glad you got them in the end. Thank you for your warning!
I was just curious, but do you keep a spreadsheet or something anywhere with what you have and what you're missing? Especially with something like the 365 day stickers--I feel like it'd be way too hard for me personally to remember what I already have and don't have! And do you just have them tucked away in a binder or something? I have so many small things like that too and it's basically impossible to display all of them! And I'm also so curious as to how things are displayed in your room, since it seems like it'd be constantly changing with how much stuff you're always getting in! Obviously NO PRESSURE at all to do this, but have you considered taking a panoramic photo of your room every month like how the user TyjosAzari does in his articles? It would be super cool to see how your room/house changes from month to month! But I totally get it if this is an impossibility due to any reason at all!
Thanks again for taking the time to write this massive loot post up! :)

This is honestly one of the sweetest comments I've ever received, so I'd really like to personally thank you so much for taking the time to read through such a lengthy post, but also for the time you took afterwards to leave something so kind as a response!

I had a bit too much to talk about this time, so I'm really glad that I didn't make you suffer through the original draft I wrote up, it hit the character limit for articles on MFC I'm pretty sure? Didn't even know that was a thing. I had to edit it down and ended up posting this a bit later than usual because of that.

Obi, I'll remember that! Thank you, I assumed there was a name for those but never knew it, so I appreciate you letting me know!

In a way, I kind of use these loot hauls as a way to remember what I do and don't have. Since I take pictures of every little thing I get. Either I look through the photos on my profile, or search my MFC collection and filter by character so it's a lot easier to look through. Otherwise it's completely by memory! Specifically 365 stickers though, I do have a binder for so I can also check that if I forget whether or not I have one of them. Until somewhat recently I didn't realize that Jump Shop actually posts the upcoming month schedule for sticker releases.. I used to just refresh a Yahoo! Auctions tab on my phone each day with the search term for 365 stickers already typed in and hope I don't miss any. @sticker366 is a profile I follow that only retweets the schedules, so I just check those if I ever forget.

As for pictures of my room, I'd really love to show it off! Recently I've a lot of people interested in what it looks like, in fact I responded to someone who was also curious just yesterday too funnily enough. I really appreciate everyone who's that interested in my collection, the only reason I haven't got around to showing it off is simply because I feel like it isn't presented nicely enough to be worthwhile? Obviously with so much stuff, I do have plenty of it tucked away in storage. I have a pretty small room, but I still try to display as much as I can.. but where I display my figures and acrylics especially is so cluttered that you can hardly get a good look at any of it. I promised myself that I'd make an effort to change that this year though and buy a few shelves and such to lay out everything in a way that I'm happy with so that everyone can finally see my merch in all it's glory!

I really loved reading your comment and answering your questions, I'm so glad to hear you enjoy my hauls!
Thank you once more!

BlazeDazzleDuskIl y a 6 mois#76088134Amazing loot, I don’t think your collection is excessive at all, I think your dedication to collecting so many goods is admirable! I especially love all the plushies you got of the BNHA characters and the love love girls. That tower of stacking plushies is something to behold!
I’m sorry that you were overworked and didn’t enjoy your last few months packages, I understand how you feel because sometimes we can lose interest in the things we are passionate about and all we can wait is for them to come back to us. That Australian proxy sounds awful, thanks for the warning about them, I don’t understand how people can scam people like that and sleep at night. ):
If you ever decided to make YouTube videos I would really like to see them because you have a really great collection. :)

I really value your supportive words and reassurance, it makes me happy to just hear from another's perspective that my collection isn't all that crazy, and it's okay to go all out on something you enjoy. Also to be reminded that sometimes you can get overwhelmed, lose your ambition and enthusiasm.. and that's alright! Just gotta remind myself to keep moving along, breathe a little and when things aren't as hectic then I'll be able to enjoy it all a bit more like before.

Ahh, yeah. I really don't understand how you could be dishonest in the pursuit of money like that either. It was upsetting when I tried to contact them directly, being reasonable and civil, but they were already on the offensive. They were pressuring me to pay immediately too while I was waiting for a response from the sites support, counting down each day.. so when I talked to the site support and they told me to message the proxy directly, they insisted that it was unfair to them that I made them hold onto my items any longer than necessary without extra compensation despite it only being three days. They told me it was a business and they couldn't afford to take the fall for my mistake. I still tried to be empathetic after such an aggressive response, letting them know I understood that and apologizing for the situation being upsetting for us both, but also letting them know that the consumer should not be exploited or treated like this. They weren't budging on the matter so I just decided, alright, they won.

It's great to hear you'd be interested in potential videos from me too! I'd just hope to make it entertaining and presented nicely enough.

Thank you once more for checking out my haul and the sweet comment!
