Finally got the full set, since last Sunday… Got a total of 4 extras in the process, at least it beats the UFO catcher, where you don’t always get something. Just a teaser for now, even though I have a relatively free week, I have other more important things to do. I’ll do the rest when I feel like it.
Don’t ask for the extras, I know what I’m going to do with them. I wasn’t really paying attention to where Nena’s eyes were facing, so I apologize for the epic fail.
After a prolonged absence of giving you somewhat outdated figure news, your not-so-friendly フェイダムさん is here to take more ridicule! Ok, jokes aside, here’s the news.

Yay, first try too. Maybe I’ll try for the rest next time. Less talk, some pictures.
And… that’s it for now. More pictures when I decide to get all of them.
Yes, I know it’s been a while since I last wrote anything for this blog… Or rather, anything that has nothing to do with me wishing everyone a happy <insert festival>… This time, I shall try something stupid: I shall try to write most of this post in my mediocre moonspeak. Why? It’s just a test to myself. My command of the language is not that good, but at least I’m trying to improve myself. So here’s a simple statement, not a threat, not a warning, just a simple statement; No flames. But I guess by simply saying that, I’m just attracting them. Oh well, there’s always the “delete”, “mark as spam” and “unapprove” functions.

Ironic this is only my 9th issue despite me providing almost-daily info. Anyways, here’s what you want.
First up, this cute 1/8 scale figure of Shirai Kuroko from Toaru Majutsu no Index by Kotobukiya.
She’s cute and loli, two aspects which I like in a figure. Kuroko goes for 6,300円 next year in March. News via Hobby Channel.
Next up, Yamato is releasing this action figure of God Gravion from… well, Choujuushin God Gravion…
It seems very tempting, especially with that awesome-looking chest piece. God Gravion will be released in December this year for 3,000円. Go see more of God Gravion over at Yamato’s page. (Hint: click on PHOTOZoomer)
Oh, by the way, most of the prices I provide you guys with do NOT include the 5% Japan tax. So Japanese readers or readers in Japan might want to keep that in mind before rushing down to your local hobby store or Akiba with the exact amount in your wallets and find out you’re short of a couple of hundred yen because you thought tax was already included.
AT LONG LAST! Good Smile has finally put up a page on her!
The figma of my favorite kansai-ben speaking mage is confirmed to be released in January next year! Hayate-chan goes for 2,800円. More pictures over at Good Smile’s page on her!

It’s been a slow week for 2ch, so my news comes in slow as well. Anyways, here’s what new…
First up is this delicious 1/8 scale figure of Kizaki Emi Swimsuit Version by Kotobukiya.
What I wouldn’t give to be that nuigurumi… Emi-chan goes for sale in March next year for 6,090円. News and picture via Hobby Channel.
Next up are the Imajin Genetic Vol. 2 & 3, which are Kintaros and Deneb respectively, by Megahouse.
These nicely sculpted figures are going for 5,040円 each, and both will be released in January next year. News via GA Graphic.

Well, I have a confession(it isn’t a confession if you know me well enough). I like mecha musume, in particular the Busou Shinki(武装神姫) line of figures. A while back, Konami announced a line of Light Armor Shinkis that had less armor. In my mind, I thought of 2 things:
1) Less armor means less armor bits, so this means it’ll be easier to fiddle around with them.
2) Less parts means it’ll cost less to manufacture.
I learned the hard way that both of these mean nothing on pricing, because I still paid the same price for them as I did for my normal heavier armored Shinkis…
Well, I didn’t really have my hopes up for them, because I seriously doubted that I could get my hands on them. Fortunately, Uncle Ng‘s store at Wheellock Place(Dollz Inc.) proved me wrong. And so, I now present to you, the first wave of the new Busou Shinki Light Armor Series: Werkstra & Valona! (Forgive me for having lousy pictures, since my camera is only 3.2 megapix and absolute shit)
Well, for this round of reviews, I thought about using a makeshift backdrop to see how it’s like. Fortunately, my backdrop is thin, so I can still make use of lighting from the lights on the ceiling in front of my desk(unfortunaely, no actual source of lighting exists above my desk). However, I have learnt NOT to try to take pictures during the day when it’s cloudy.

Alter is coming out with this tempting 1/8 scale figure of Nagato Yuki from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu.
The pose is so seductive, that even a anti-Haruhism person like me is considering getting it. Yuki will be released in March next year for 6,090円. Here’s the best part, it’s a Chara-ani exclusive. Good luck with that, people. More info over at Alter’s page on her.
