Gunpla Expo World Tour Japan 2013 is now on-going (21st – 24th of November) and with it comes the news on various upcoming and future projects on them Gunpla. w
While there are many prototypes and announcements being made, my eyes are currently fixed upon the new 2014 lines of Master Grade kits of the latest series Gundam Build Fighters’ gunpla form.^_~
It’s no surprise the protag’s main gunpla units, the Build Strike Gundam and Build Gundam Mk II, received an MG kit since their base body MG Strike Gundam and MG Gundam Mk II already have a Version 2.0 mould.
In a few more days, I’ll catch a flight down south for the annual pilgrimage.
Of course Tama-chan will accompany me in my trip, she’ll bring along her new outfit just in time for the event too.
It’s been ages since I last touch a Gunpla. It was about two years ago to be exact, when I last build my own mecha model kits—oh wait I built a Kotobukiya’s Metal Gear Ray (Of Metal Gear Solid fame) earlier this year which I never get around to do a proper photo shoot… orz
Anyway, a new upcoming Gundam anime series will be on air very, very soon. Gundam Build Fighters is an expansion to the OVA Gunpla Builders Beginning G from years ago, which is a cross between the Plamo hobby and Angelic Layer. ^_~
Of course Bandai spares no time to quickly convert them mecha design into Gunpla form. Amongst the many unique and incredible customs from the show, one of them in particular caught my eyes.
Due to a friend’s (Of college years) wedding dinner falling on the same day, I was denied my chance to attend the Bon Odori event last year.
Not so this time around, as I’ve made sure I’m free this year to join the matsuri, alongside Tama-chan of course. :Dc
Last weekend, we’ve arrived at the site at an earlier time to avoid the incoming massive throng of curious visitors. Took Tama-chan for a little walk along the coast.
Yes. The Bon Odori Matsuri is held at Padang Kota aka Old Gurney Drive, a coastal area with ship and ferry docks nearby and just passed the Banking area.
If you’ve played the latest PSP game Fate/Extra CCC, you’ll know that our lovely foxy Caster has the ability to raid her closet for several different kinds of outfits, of which you can had her wear during her battle with the random dungeon ENEMIES and various bosses. www
Not to be outdone by her digital self, Tama-chan requested my “assistance” in acquiring her some of them outfits akin to the game itself.
1st in line is this mizugi since well, it’s Summer time! ^_~
Ever since the night before the Dragon Day, Tama-chan has barely been genki following the passing Moons, lying in a state of utmost inactivity lethargy.
Don’t be alarmed tho Tama-chan’s not in harm’s way, actually her Master was in the midst of readying her for several minor operations to further enhance her aesthetics. ^_~
For this grand project, many acquisitions were made from the passing Moons, most notably from Taobao (A Chinese equivalent of e
vilBay/Yahoo! Japan Auctions) by using a proxy service called My Parcel Store…
Amongst the materials acquired are: Volks Shapely L Bust, Wersaze Wrist Joint, Wersaze Yawashiri, Cool Cat Fortified Aluminium Alloy Neck Joint, Miruya Wig and Moe-Castle’s Miko Outfit (Not shown here).
I am the Knightess of my Pink Republic
Animanga is my passion, figure is my raison d’être
I have created over a thousand excuses
Not to get a Dollfie, yet to no avail
Have withstood pain to cancel many pre-orders
Yet those sacrifices will never help much
So as I plan, Unlimited Instalment Works!
Conceived roughly a trio of Earth cycles ago, it wasn’t after several passing seasons later before the actual summoning is complete.
It’s barely several days after the dawn of a new Lunar Year, but the 14th day of the 2nd moon is here once again!
Give Your Big Bro Chocolate Day Saint Valentine’s Day is the very day when girls of all ages prepare chocolates as a gift to their loved ones (Well at least in Japan, everywhere else it’s the guy’s responsibility to dish out hard earned monies on expensive romantic dinners. ^^;)!!
The end of the Year of the Dragon is nigh!
On the night before the Reunion Dinner on the Eve of the Lunar New Year, local InnovaDDoushi once again gathered for trash talks and such… XDc
Once again the chosen rendezvous point is the Coob Coffee Club at Komtar Walk…
And of course Tama-chan tags along too. ^~^
Thanks to the smooth negotiations between Volks and a fellow InnovaDDoushi, the submission for the Worldwide Dollfie Dream® Photobook is now underway…
The collection will basically feature over a hundred beautiful Dollfie Dream picchus of various InnovaDDoushi from all parts of the globe, fully endorsed by the doll maker giant Volks themselves! ^~^
I don’t usually celebrate my Coming-to-Earth Day…
But when I do it’s not my plan at all since I always forgot about the day itself every year!
Ooooh~! Tadaima, Tama-chan!
A couple of nights before the end of the old year,
in celebration of surviving the Mayan Apocalypse, once again I along with local InnovaDDoushi gathered at Coob Coffee Club for a small Doll Meet to allow our musume a breather after a long year of work… ^_~
I was somewhat late for the meetup time, but the rest of the group were not there when I reached the destination… ^o^;;;
It’s that time of the year again, the magical period when innocent and pure children awaits their promised presents from the man in red.
Altho the actual day itself falls on the day after tomorrow, it is the Eve (which is… today!) that everyone’s excited about with feast-ful gatherings, family reunions, lovers intimacy and such… XDc
A small fact: today is also unofficially known as KFC Day to the Japanese as a majority of them will opt to Zerg-rush their nearby outlets for bucketful of finger lickin’ fried chickens (Turkeys are too expensive to afford there, same situation where I live… ^_~).
To avoid confusion to the gigantic Tama-chan, from now on I shall dub this Caster aka Tamamo no Mae, Kotama-chan! XDc
Arrived just a week after the trip to the South, yet another upgrade has been installed onto Tama-chan to increase her overall beauty! ^~^
In memories of a certain Dollfie Dream… Not! XDc
Many thanks to Yukino-chan’s papa, Tama-chan was invited to one of the biggest gathering of all her kind she’d ever experienced.
This weekend, I’ll once again travel down South for my annual pilgrimage to the island of the Fishy Lion for AFA12!!
Tama-chan was so restless for the past few days hopping around the room in excitement while I’m busy packing up for our trip. XDc
Once again, Danny Choo-san of Culture:Japan fame will organise a special after AFA gathering for like-minded comrades to interact and have fun with one another, just like how Tama-chan had fun during last year‘s AKB48 night and earlier mid year‘s Pavilion gathering… ^~^
Held in the Orchid Room of Kallang Theatre, not bad a choice for a venue this time as earlier CJNs are way too crowded at time…:3c
うふふ~ Tama-chan’s new outfit has finally arrived!
Here’s a tease to what Tama-chan will be! ^~^
For the upcoming AFA12, the gorgeous musume-tachi of various InnovaDDoushi will once again grace the exhibition halls in display to curious and enthusiastic visitors!
On last count according to the organisers, there’ll be more than a hundred of confirmed attendance of them musume-tachi! 0_0
Unveiled during the September issue of Volks News, which incidentally doubled up as the 50th Volume since its publication, there will be an event this coming 20th… ^_~
Expect rotsa InnovaDDoushi and campers to fight against one another for a chance to land some of these raburi raburi merchandise onto their musume’s hands… :3c
Since last Saturday, InnovaDDo with subscription to Volks News infozine has been flooding the interwebs with discussions and speculations of the upcoming outfits and new DD related items from the latest September issue of Volks News Vol. 50. ^_~
Seems like these lovely merchandise will be available during the Tenshi no Sumika Fair 2012/Cool Kyoto 2012 event…
Tama-chan has set Tama-chan’s eyes upon a single pinkish outfit that Tama-chan must get Tama-chan’s hands on. Tama-chan wonder if Goshujin-sama will get one for Tama-chan? :3c
Released in limited quantities during the Home Town Dolls Party Sendai (And After Event) last moon, I’ve eyed with my keen eagle sight upon the Magical Aqua Dress set, immediately registered my entry to the Volks’ notorious lottery system that will allow me to purchase the selected item if I win.
Unfortunately, due to my usual Otaku Jinx active skill, I’ve lost my bid, putting me in the chasm of zetsubou… D:
