May Figure Haul and Beato Arrives

Ookami Ryouko (Alter) , Yuri (GSC), Eustass Kidd (Banpresto), Animation Dead Master (GSC), Dizzy (GSC), Sanji (Banpresto), Flynn (Alter), Summer Kagami (Sega), and Summer Konata (Sega).  And with this figure haul I think I’m officially squeezed for shelf space again. Well I’ll find some way to make everyone fit, I’ve “run out of space” many times now since I started collecting. Although sometimes my solution is to sell off some figures I’m less interested in, but that won’t be the case this time. I’m still pretty happy with everything on my shelves. Just some good old fashioned re-arranging will be needed for the next few hauls. Perhaps I’ll take solo pictures of someone from this haul sometime soon…but when it comes to trying to take nice pictures I’m a bit distracted by something else these days… :) hehehehe

On Order: Witches, Weddings, and Wings

 

I was putting together my newly arrived GSC Hitagi when I asked my boyfriend for an opinion on why the office supplies weren’t looking quite like the picture. There was one accidental hand gesture on his part and I got to see her crash to the floor as all the pieces separated off the base. Do any of you make a pained shriek when you see one of your figures falling a few feet to the ground? Well apparantly that’s the noise I make in that situation, followed by an angry scolding. I admit that even though figures aren’t everything to me,  I’m definitely a momentary bitch when someone accidentally harms one. I wonder how many bofriends have to deal with a 1 minute rampage over breaking their girlfriend’s sexy female figure? Luckily my GSC Hitagi escaped relatively unharmed, one of the skinny pieces (a pointed pen?) on the office supplies half broke off. So we bent it back into place and applied some super glue. Also the stapler/pen on her skirt broke off, but that damage is really easy to fix and hide too. I’m really lucky that a figure with such small delicate parts didn’t break in more spots that would be harder to hide. Well anyway  on to my new orders! I didn’t really realize it until I was putting this post together, but I’ve pre-ordered A LOT since my last order post!

Figures and Dreaming of a Beatrice Dollife

It’s that time of the year, where some lucky workers get a bit of extra income 😉 I’m doing some responsible (boring) things with my tax return and bonus. The tax return was enough to fix up the bathroom, and the bonus was to pay off the rest of my car and my credit card. BUT I decided what the heck, I’ll have a bit of fun too so I pre-ordered a few items I originally passed on. If you’re curious, last year my bonus treat was my set of Aria figures. When Saber/Rin were announced I liked their peaceful faces and their pricetag. I used to collect every Saber figure but I began really running out of space and decided to just leave my Saber collection at 3-4 figures of her in armor. But Aka made a good point, these ladies don’t look like they take up too much space if that’s what’s stopping me. As for Houmei I admitted I was on the fence on it when I decided against her, and it was nagging at me that I might regret passing on her. I realized I really want to see her in real life and not just in pictures.
