First Loot of 2020! (Bored in Quarantine Edition)First Loot of 2020! (Bored in Quarantine Edition)Loot

Moomoogirl1Moomoogirl1Il y a 4 mois
Hello everyone! \(T∇T)/

Hope you all are holding up during these trying times. Since my job is closed for the next couple of weeks, I've found time to write this loot article down. It's been a mixed bag of emotions, as I tie a lot of my mental health to being productive in a work setting. On the flip side, I have more time to toy with my hobbies. And I've been exercising a lot too! My body definitely appreciates that.

I don't have as much to show as last article's, but I believe I've spent more this time around. As always, I will state when and where I got the item from, how much it cost if it was a good deal (or not), and share pictures. Let's get started!


January

Tamoe Mami: ITEM #75590

Gon Freecss: ITEM #142273

Killua Zoldyck: ITEM #142715

Bruno Bucciarati: ITEM #806021


January is my birthday month and I honestly don't remember what I even did that day. The day before that however, arrived Mami. I decided to finish my Magical Madaka girl line and purchase Mami from Chibi Chop Shop. I got her for 35 USD which is a pretty good price for any nendoroid. For some reason I didn't realize she came with a tea set. I have three nendos with a plate and tea cup now. Let's hope they're not spilling too much tea about their fellow nendos.

I'm glad to own the main five girls now. Madoka is by no means new but it's the last magical girl franchise I genuinely enjoyed with my brother (who no longer likes anime). I feel the set as a whole still remains beautifully painted, detailed, and sculpted, even when compared to newer nendoroids. I hope they remain timeless.

Next up is Gon and Killua. I loathed the presentation of their nendoroids. I probably would have been less salty if they came with their iconic outfits, but Freeing didn't even want to do that. Figuring the figmas wouldn't re-release anytime soon, I brought these guys for $100 each from a user on this site.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/21/2410169.jpeg

Do I regret buying them? Nope! But do I wish they cost less? Most certainly, especially with what you get. Before being released again, I spent $99 on the Deadpool nendoroid and even then I didn't feel too bad about the price seeing what he came with. I just find every figma I buy lacking in extras which makes me want to spend less on them. Of course these two are the only exception and they're probably going to stay that way. They're lucky I love the show and they're so damn cute.

Lastly was my Hobby Search preorder of the month with Mama Bruno. I initially wasn't going to get him but his photos were so pretty I decided to anyway. Plus, it's Bruno! I love him and he's probably going to rise in price lol.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/21/2409841.jpeg

Though I have one complaint I'm sure some have already read from others: I REALLY wish he came with a smiling face plate. I thought it wouldn't bother me at first but the more I grow to love him, the more I feel they really should have included one? I may have attempted to make one of my own using the no ear mole Dio face plate I have lying around but! I'm still working on it so I refuse to show it yet.

Other than that, he's a fine nendo and I love how they conceptualized his stand. Have a closer look:

February

Miles Morales: ITEM #872618

Taneshima Popura: ITEM #78584

Oceana: ITEM #762745

Justice: ITEM #724179


Miles was an AmiAmi preorder who I was definitely super psyched upon his announcement. Because I fricking love Into the Spiderverse. It was probably one of the best movies of the year. Oh wait, it won an Oscar, of course it was.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/23/2411084.jpeg

This is certainly a worthy nendo for the character. I got the DX version because my baby doesn't deserve any less. I display him mostly maskless because look at that smile. Look at it.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/21/2410170.jpeg

Protect him.

(Also can we talk about how they released him during Black History Month, was that intentional??? Not complaining, it just made this black fan here laugh)

And then Popura was brought preowned on AmiAmi because I've been putting off purchasing her for so long. I nearly considered not even doing so. But I loved Working!!, I do have a soft spot for this character, and I like my complete sets. Also let's be honest, she was practically the one running the restaurant. Best girl? Arguably.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/21/2409839.jpeg

Lastly, these two are not figures but they're still in the system so I thought I'd talk about them here. They're also the reason I slowed down on nendoroids. I'm talking about Danny Choo's Smart Doll line and after being a fan of his work for years, I decided to get two.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/21/2409842.jpeg

Ordered directly from the Smart Doll site, they are definitely pricey, good lord. I didn't even get the vinyl bodies. Still, worth it! These girls are absolutely stunning. Now, I'm not saying I'm done with nendos but boy do the workmanship on these dolls almost blow them out of the water. I can not stress how EXPENSIVE they are though, even their non brand clothes. So while I'm grateful to finally, finally own two, I would still recommend figure collecting over them.

But still, come on, they're gorgeous.

March

Aqua: ITEM #415013

That's it. It's just nendo Aqua. I love the color blue. I also love that Aqua, second to Darkness, makes me laugh my lungs out. So I definitely wanted her but I had been tip toeing around getting her. Luckily a user here was selling her without her box. Seeing as I no longer use nendo boxes for storage, why not jump on this good deal?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/21/2409849.jpeg

The best thing about Aqua is her faces. I like her glossy finish on the bottom of her skirt and that she comes with her party trick fans too, but the expressions are the strongest point for this nendo. Many have already come up with countless situations depicting these gold mines. Of course, I had to contribute. Thanks for helping Bruno:

And...that's it! I was supposed to receive my Tanjiro nendoroid, ITEM #813031, this month but alas, he's been delayed due to the pandemic. I'm almost positive his sister, ITEM #813029, is going to be delayed too. I have no grievances about this. It's just weird that for the first time in a long time, I only have one item being added to my collection for the month. Bonkers. But understandable.

Well, hope you enjoyed this little "loot" of mine. Tell me down below what you liked or if you too are having your collecting slowed down by the epidemic. Also thank you to these two users for allowing me to do business with you:

HOMUMITCHELLI
and
MINAMIS


Stay safe friends and try to stay inside to stop the spread of the virus. Thanks for reading!

SolarstormflareIl y a 4 mois#76823611Wow nice! I especially love the gon and killua figmas-i've been trying to find them for a good price but it's hard, haha

Thank you! These figmas are so hard for a good price! I figured getting 100 for both was as good as I was going to get for a long time.


dandybabyIl y a 4 mois#76824322Nice haul. Love the pic of everyone having tea. (* ^ ω ^)
I (like many others) lost my entire March pre-order to the virus. I had also ordered Tanjiro, and yes, I can see Nezuko (and most of my April order) being delayed too. I made up for it by getting some other figures I'd had my eye on instead.
Haha, I laughed at the bit about wishing Bruno came with a smiling faceplate. I'm currently drafting a loot post whilst stuck in lockdown, and I literally wrote the exact same thing in mine. Seems we're all in mutual agreement!

Slowdowns are definitely mixed bag. Unfortunately an hour after publishing this article, my governor announced schools would be closed for the rest of the school year, my only source of income. So I'm trying to weigh if the PO delays help me out or not. I'll probably still buy nendo Tanjiro and Nezuko because of how crazy in demand they are lol But definitely no further preorders for me. I may even have to cancel some more.

Thank you both for commenting and sorry for the mini rant.

The Popura nendo is adorable! I saw a major slowdown in my collection, mostly due to me being unwilling to compromise with the worsening exchange rate. I have three Kimetsu No Yaiba figures on preorder from the Kotobukiya line - the first, Tanjiro, is due next month and even though there's no news yet, I am pretty sure he will be delayed.
