Most Recent Haul + Other Updates

As I was unpacking and finding homes for the figures in theĀ Built Up Haul Parts I and II, another haul built up. Maybe someday I’ll be up to date on my new goodies but it’s kind of more fun posting them all at once. Bottom to top, and left to right I have Animation Black Rock Shooter (GSC), Yukata Rei (Kotobukiya), Kakashi (Megahouse), Metis (Figma), Hetalia volume 2 (Kotobukiya), Luffy (Megahouse), Ace (Megahouse), Asuka (Alter), and Figuarts Luffy (Bandai).

It was cheaper to buy that auction and get double what I wanted then it was to buy each one individually on eBay. I hate having extras but I bought it and stored the extras under my bed for a while. Then I sold each of the extras off one by one and before I knew it I had paid off my $35 purchase by just selling the doubles/triples and even made a small profit!
