rests all of my not-quite-reviews of various figures.
Really, this is just a reason to glorify that which I love, so
enjoy. More will come... as I get to them.
a week, there was just no other way--I'd been working
for months to turn a profit (I'm an artist, feel bad for
me please) and was halfway through a solid week of packing up
everything I owned to move and... well, sie will never
be a regret. Sie's still on my desk, in fact,
commanding me to work. Of course, every time sie
catches my eye sie distracts me...

never thought I'd see one in person let alone buy one in
a sealed box. Oh Ebay, sometimes you spoil me.

The other half probably has something to do with

Surprise! It's Dissidia Trading Arts Firion!

here at last, Figma KOS-MOS!
I'm still on my Tron kick, too. Plus it was
impossible to resist Tron and Sark Kubricks.
okay, just one more. And man, you cannot really
appreciate how creepy NECA Tron is until he's staring
through your soul.
I was going to hold out for a Dissidia Play Arts Kai
Sephiroth (because come on, he's just got to be coming),
but... well, what can I say of Squall. That ass.
I do not have enough AI representation around
here. I solved that a little with a sweet little
Tachikoma from Nendoroid!
Finally! Surely Wild Tiger will keep some order to
my desk! Or break more things, but... it's all in
the name of justice.
You can't have one in a hero pair without the
other. No, seriously.
Resistance once again proved alarmingly futile.
I'm sort of an oldschool Knight Rider fan, it must be
said. But you know, I'm always partial to "the
You can't just get a Kotetsu plush without getting a
Barnaby plush! It would be madness!
At long last, I have snagged myself a Riku. I
still hold out hope for a KH2 version that's not the
size of my thumb... but not too much hope.
While I'm waiting for the Figuarts, I thought I may as
well get something to tide me over...
I finally scored a Play Arts Red XIII and Cait
Sith! For a sane price!
Almost an entire year
since the prototype picture was published, Figuarts H-01
is safe at home.
At long last, my Figma T-elos has found her way home!
So I couldn't manage to get my hands on the Double
Chaser... but this transforming bike is just a little
more suited to my tastes.
In our first guest not-review from the magnificent Schala,
it's Figuarts Darkness Bunny!
|Why if it isn't DXF Gintoki. It was a bit of a surprise to me too.|
So... I couldn't really hope to resist Wild Tiger Last
|So I saw my chance and I took it for Beast Hunter Voyager Predaking.|
|There was no way I was going to let a series-accurate Rhinox pass me by.|
|Well, I kinda figured, while Origami Cyclone was available and easily affordible... it'd be fun to hide him in pictures.|
|The most fabulous of the Heroes needs no introduction; Fire Emblem is where he belongs.|
|I had the opportunity and I took it.|
|My first, and let us hope last, model kit: MG Figurise Wild Tiger.|
|So of course the MG Barnaby Brooks Jr. model kit had to come along too, right?|
|I was weak, I could not resist the call of the shiny.|
|I'm afraid I just couldn't resist the call of Hasbro's first "fan-made" Transformer. Partly because she's a jet.|
|My first third-party Transformer would have to be a cassette cat, wouldn't it.|
|And sometimes you're surprised by the sudden inevitable connection made with a toy at a comic book store. You've all been there, right?|
|And then being buried deeper in femmebot Transformers, Chromia.|
|How could I have ever resisted? Finally, after 28 years, a proper Arcee! With firepower.|
|I just had a few too many Autobots in here lately, you know?|
|And... another Autobot, but at least this one's nuts?|
|Autobot, Decepticon, I don't care; I finally got my space shuttle dragon bird dinosaur thing.|
|I just needed the painfully 80's mess that is Generations Brainstorm. Also because of spoilers.|
|Did I pay to build my own non-transforming Transformer? Yes, yes I did. ...How did that happen.|
|It only took a really long time but finally there's a Motoko Kusanagi figure that I'm happy with.|
|It's always only a matter of time before another Transformer shows up. This time, they're super tiny and reasonably priced!|
|You can never have too many Dantes, right?|
|Doesn't everyone need a tiny angry Megatron in their lives?|
|How could I have resisted a tiny angrier, evil clone of Optimus Prime?|
|I hate giving Konami any of my money, but... tiny angry Raiden.|
|I have been waiting for my little red Corvette for ever so long. And this is as close as I'll ever get to owning a Stingray, so.|
|So, wait for a decade and I'll get the figure I've been longing for? ...That seems kinda cruel, but.|
|Around here I may be known as a Ravage fan... so this should come as no surprise.|
|I guess it's been a good year for figures I never thought I'd live to see. Not so great for my bank account, though.|
|And so it was that I decided, "Money? Who needs that?"|
|Well I can't just get one...|
|And then this happened.|
|Gotta have the full set, y'know.|
|...Who could resist? Not me.|
