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!

Most Recent Haul + Other Updates

As I was unpacking and finding homes for the figures in the 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). Almost all of these figures have found a nice place on my shelves. I’m just stuck on the best place to put my Hetalia figures. I also haven’t found a place for my Figuarts Luffy yet, why? Because I don’t really like how he looks, the outline of his lips makes it look like he has on lipstick. I believe this will be my last Figuarts figure. I guess my Boa Hancock Figuarts pre-order being cancelled was a blessing in disguise.
