Today is the 9th of the 3rd Moon, also known as 39 Day aka Miku Day! wwwww
For the uninitiated, learn more about the Day of Hatsune Miku over here.
In celebration of this wonderful occasion of Vocaloid appreciation, let’s have a short look at the recently arrived Figma Miku variation… XDc
Falls on the same day, Day 1 of the Lunar New Year also marks the day when major and amateur figure creators from all over Japan gathered in one large specialised event to show cast all their latest and upcoming releases…
The 17th annual Wonderful Hobby Life For You!! aka the Wonder Festival 2012 Winter bares its fangs poisoning would-be collectors and comrades alike!
Hatsune Miku has enjoyed much popularity over the years ever since her début as a virtual idol, taking up many positions such as being an official race queen for Good Smile Racing for the past few years.
While GSR has offered the public a chance to sponsor their favourite virtual idol in the GT races, it was only available to the Japanese for the past yesteryear.
Sponsors are usually given an assortment of limited Racing Miku merchandise for the year, especially the much sought after Figma and Nendoroid versions of the Racing Miku besides the usual straps, stickers, personal sponsorship cards and other stuffs…
Spotted at Good Smile Company’s booth during AFAMY12, Racing Miku version 2012′s elegant futuristic design caught my eyes, grabbing my heart with her almost impish grin… And I told myself this: I definitely must get a Figma version of her!
T-minus 5 days left until the most exciting event in Malaysia this year (Besides Comic Fiesta)…!!
The stage events of AFAMY12 is finally revealed via a couple of teaser videos~ :3c
Expect rotsa new announcements of lovely Figma, Nendoroids and scaled figures at its own corner of display booths!!
Starting today April the 10th until the 1st of next Moon, comrades will be able to cast votes upon their favourite Nendoroid, Figma and Scaled Figures ever released by GSC in the past for a possible re-run/re-release, and nominate various charas in consideration for future releases! !
Whenever Mikatan-san of GSC fame produced a preview buroggu entry of any Nendo and/or figures, it is guaranteed that the pre-order for that particular item will be upped the next day…
Guess who’s showing up on Mikatan’s newest entry? ^_~
Coming from the Land of the Rising Sun directly to your cosy residence…
…this little rori will surely take your breath away with her charming smile! ^~^
Do you have one of those urges to do little, boring things like pinching bubble wraps or grabbing a wagging shippo? XDc
Similar to last year’s, each of us top 200 finalists of GSC’s 13th Wonderful Hooby Life 4 You 5th PhotoCon gets a compilation booklet of all the entries to feast our eyes… 0w0
Fancy adopting a chibi little Magikano for your own, umm… usage? Want a SAN (Suddenly Acquired Nendoroid) by your door step?
“Look no further, just come and form a contract with me”, declares 9Bay-tan as it tries desperately hopping to reach the viewpoint of prospective Puella Magi in front of her…
Over these past few moons, many arrivals from separate sauce have finally reached my den… =3c
Nope, Miku-tan… They’re not yours… ^^;
Roughly a season ago, I’ve entered the GSC’s 13th Wonderful Hobby Life 4 You 5th PhotoCon in hoping to nail myself a set of PS3 (1st prize!)…
Unfortunately, my entry failed to win me some of the most attractive prizes made available…^^;
Ah well there’s always next year… ^~^
April 1st, is the birthday of Kinomoto Sakura and Syaoran Li; April 1st, it’s kanji is the surname of Watanuki Kimihiro;
April 1st, the date we all love to hate, as we’re constantly duped, pranked, mami’d, cheated, mindfcuk’d and so on by mischievous friends and loved ones… ^^;
Not even half of the day, many familiar sites I visited have already had their own celebration of this Baka no Hi in the Month of 4! XDc
Immediately after the long Chinese New Year Holidays, the Postal Dude finally delivered the long-awaited To Aru Majutsu no Index 1st Release Limited Edition PSP Game to my doorsteps…
Just as the 1st Release Limited Edition of Fate/Extra PSP Game before it, I ordered this purely for the included Figma Misaka Mikoto, my fave chara among the hundreds in the To Aru Series… ^_~
An overview of the main box… Unlike the illustrative beautiful Fate/Extra, To Aru Majutsu no Index (Index Henceforth) has its cover covered with the main chara of the series on a rather bland black background…
The PO for a trio of Nendoroids has surfaced today at various online stores… Looks like GSC has gone all out with their cutesy action figures lately… XDc
Coming this January at 3,333 yen is the ever dependable little sister of the main girl from the fan favourite anime series K-On! (Which ends just a couple of days ago… T^T But fear not a movie has been announced! ^_^), Hirasawa Ui!!!
It appears Windows Live Spaces, my previous buroggu host will systematically shutting down their buroggu support and us buroggas had been given the time until March next year to decide to either migrate to WordPress (Their partner-in-crime) or let it stay on the former as read only buroggu (Meaning no more updates can be made when the dateline hits), or even choose to delete the buroggu all together…
Preorder for the upcoming PSP game, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun, is upped today! Already had mine preordered due to its awesome limited first release furoku! ^_^
Coming this April priced at 8,980 yen, a Figma of the ever eager yuri Shirai Kuroko will be included alongside the text based galge type PSP game…
More Railgun goodness, in Figma form to boot!!! And so our imagination will be broken with such exciting news!
Only 20,000 pieces of her will be cloned (In accordance to her numbers in the anime…), each of her Figma base will be serial-numbered too!
After surviving the bombardments of comrade mGlacius and Crimotaku‘s joint military exercise, I’ve finally surrendered my will and grabbed myself the one true holy crown of my childhood yume, a Transformers Masterpiece Convoy (Optimus Prime to the West) Black ver. by Takara Tomy!
MP Convoy Black is actually a limited release of the very same mould used one the 1st MP Convoy (In its original red-blue colour scheme) from half a decade ago, with the Japanese version bundled with an e-Hobby exclusive comic book while the Hong Kong version bundled with a die-cast name plate…
The one I got is actually from eBay with a fraction of its original price sans any of the extras mentioned… Quite a bargain I say as it only costs me about 7,991 (LOL The number of my previous car licence plate… Coincidence? ^^;) yen including shipping as contrast to its original price which is about 12,000 yen!!! :Dc
Obligatory box shots… The first thing I noticed when I pick up this beast is the very heaviness of the danbooru! Didn’t expect it to be this solid in weight! ^^;
The front side features Convoy Black as the centre attraction (Obviously!) with his vehicle mode by his calves in a simple design while the back is littered with various information and features you can expect from those standard figurine packaging design…
A smaller image of Convoy Black and warning labels, legal stuffs and such are printed on the top and bottom portion of the danbooru respectively…
Arrived at my semi-permanent base of operations earlier this week, the much anticipated PSP game is now within my grasp! It’s been almost 9 months since I POed the box, it was supposed to be released in March but for some reason the developers postponed it in order to perfect the product.
At least the final outcome is more than satisfying as more freebies are included with the package, eventho my priority is the included Figma… ^^;
Fate Extra Type-Moon Box package contains the limited edition of the Fate Extra game box itself along with an extra in the form of Fact/the Fact.
The main box itself holds many, many goodies inside! ^_^
These past few days, a certain uproar has been unleashed amongst comrades around the world… There’s going to a second season of the much beloved anime series, To Aru Majutsu no Index! :Dc
Post title explanation: とある電子遊戯(ゲーム)の御坂美琴(ビリビリ); To Aru Denshi Yuugi (Geemu) no Misaka Mikoto (Biribiri); A certain video game’s Misaka Mikoto… :P
This is not the only news tho, as there’s also going to be a PSP game based upon the anime itself as well!
While nothing much has been revealed yet, from the likes of the screenies we can deduce that this game will be an action versus game similar to classic VS games ala Street Fighter…
The 3D charas will be cell-shaded to make the game looks like an Anime… :)
Nicknamed as Biribiri by Touma in the anime due to the sound her electrical discharge makes whenever she unleashes her power, Biribiri is also a Malay word for sheep… :P
I’ve been counting Biribiri almost every night… XD
Of course she’ll wear her signature shorts instead of a pantsu… :P
Coincidence or competition? Mmm… ~_~
Unfortunately, there are no optional parts for Misaka Imouto… >,< I would love those night vision goggles and guns on her… ^_^
This PSP game will be released this winter (Probably end of year or early 2011…) at 8,980 yen… Already had mine POed at Amiami which costs only 7,780 yen due to their usual discount… :3c
Another entry to the FigNendo diary, mostly involving a dolphin or two… ^^;
Miko Otome~! <3
No Santa dress this time around… 0:
Dolphin sashimi, Saber portion… :3c
Come to momma! 0_0
Churuya-san takes up dolphin taming as part time job when not drooling over Sumochi…
The aftermath of FigNendo shooting everytime… ^^;
