Formation: Totsugeki! Love Heart!

A continuation from last time, which is solely focused upon the YF-29 Durandal Valkyrie (Ozma Lee Custom)’s Fighter mode, now let’s transform it into its other modes in this follow-up post.

While boasting of its triple-changing modes of Fighter-Gerwalk-Battroid, there is actually another sub-form shown sparingly in the anime, a tween of Fighter and Gerwalk which I personally called the AT-ST Chicken Walker mode. XDc

One of the perks of being a Valk is its ability to do a sudden emergency stop and/or reverse thrusts, something of which even its real world jet fighter counterparts have yet to achieve perfectly as far as I know (Please correct me if I’m wrong). 

It’s basically your average Gerwalk mode, which is why most of the time it is called as such. The only difference is the arms are not deployed, only the thrusters are detached from its initial location and brought forward as legs.

Misadventure of a Skull Leader

It is in my interest that I must get a proper figure of a Valkyrie especially the ones from Macross Frontier (I got one Plamo version of Saotome Alto’s YF-25F Armoured Messiah Valkyrie as well as a Revoltech VF-1S before), ever since I laid my eyes on the franchise, but has always put my wish on hold due to their steep price.

Back when it was announced, Bandai’s incredible transformable DX Chogokin figure rendition of Macross Frontier’s Ozma Lee’s custom YF-29 Durandal Valkyrie from the PS3 game Macross 30: Ginga wo Tsunagu Utagoe!! (To coincide with Macross’s 30th anniversary), caught my attention immediately due to its impressive mould as well as an eye-catching colour scheme.

Unfortunately, it would seem that every time I try to get any figures from any Chogokin line, my luck (Or unluck if you will…) would suffer from a steep penalty from my by now a definite trait of Otaku Jinx™…

DX_Chogokin_YF-29_Ozma_01

Ozma’s YF-29 is a standard release retailed at 17,000 yen, meaning I could get it on my usual channel(s) of online stores. But as per the usual trend in the Macross figure collectors’ scene, pre-orders for it immediately went out and closed upon minutes on its opening due to extreme “supply < demand” situation. Unable to secure my cache amongst any of them online stores, I had to resort to a local physical store of which the employee an acquaintance of mine.

That’s just the tip of a series of unfortunate tumbles in my quest to secure the Valk…

提督の Heart を掴むのは、私デース!

The popularity of Kantai Collection, or more commonly referred to its shortened term Kancolle, is going stronger and stronger.

Announcements and releases are flooding the world of figure collection as well as never-ending supplies of merchandise (Unlike the flow of Bauxite XDc) 

Nendoroid_Kancolle_Kongou_01

After the overwhelming demand of Nendo/Figma Shimakaze a few months back, it’s no surprise that many more will come courtesy of GSC, including Nendo/Figma Akagi as well as this gem… :3c

The Hood of an Assassin

I have always been a follower of the Assassin’s Creed series ever since its début, fascinated by its parody use of historical facts to combine with the open-end free-running/parkour game-play as well as its colourful casts of real and fictional historical figures…

We get to explore the rich culture of each period in the guise of each protagonist of the numbered games, from the enigmatic pre-Mentor Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad of the Middle Age Crusades (Assassin’s Creed), to the charm of Ezio Auditore da Firenze of the Renaissance (Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations), to the conflicted Connor of the American Revolution (Assassin’s Creed III), and finally to the brutal Captain Edward Kenway of the Golden Age of Piracy (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag)…

AC4BF_Hoodie_01

There are several more main and sub games in the series spreading across various platforms like Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, the live action short Assassin’s Creed Lineage, 3DCG Assassin’s Creed Embers or even Assassin’s Creed The Fall comic series…

In short, the world of Assassin’s Creed is ever-expanding, with more games and others to come.

A Collection of Kantai Musume

Last year the world was caught in the blast of a new form of moe (Considering by many as the new Touhou Project…) that is the fleet management browser game called Kantai Collection, or Kancolle for short. =w=

Spanning across all types of mediums and forms, the various bishoujo rendition of World War era battleships charmed the likes of the otaku scene, driving its popularity to the max especially in recent Moons. 

Kancolle_Chibi

Merchandise of these lovely Kanmusu, most of them voiced by high-profile seiyuu veterans no less, are popping out like mushrooms ever since.

The recent announcements of a Kancolle anime which will be directed by the same person who did the Nanoha series, as well as a PlayStation Vita version of the game, certainly further accelerates its new-found fame, much to the delight of all Admirals (Or Teitoku aka T, affectionately referred to one another by the players of the game itself…).

Clingy Foxy Apparel

After the discovery of this foxy apparel, I’ve been in dilemma for days at her acquisition.

Yet this foxy miko managed to melt down my will (As always), beckoning my crying wallet-kun to its limit. =w= 

egTops_Caster_Full_Colour_T_01

Unfortunately due to EG-Tops policy on Amazon, they won’t ship outside Japan, forcing me to rely once again my trusted proxy service Tenso.com…

Which means an extra couple of thousand yen of further spending just to get her to my den. T^T

Fateful Foxy Apparel

EGTOPS_ Fate_Extra_CCC_Full_Colour_T-Shirt_01

Unlike most of the so-called Full Graphic/Print T-Shirts similarly priced from other companies (Which features only a single side of fully printed T-Shirt), this release had both of its sides covered with the foxiness of a certain magical kitsune! w

Misadventure of a Phantastic Chogokin

Perhaps one of the worst delivery delay ever happened to me, my long streak of Otaku Jinx never fail to disappoint me with its frequent appearance ever since many Moons ago… D:

Originally suppose to arrive safely onto my eager hands more than two Moon ago, the forwarding company messed up my package with another of its customer’s, causing a mixed up of delivery: instead of my Chogokin RAcaseal Black ver., I got something else altogether instead!

Chogokin_RAcaseal_Black_Ver_01

A brief count on the incident: Pre-ordered some time before AFA12 last Earth cycle at Tamashii Web Store, it doesn’t occur to me that Bandai Premium might refuse my credit card (which it did, as the site doesn’t accept non-Japanese issued CCs) when it was ready to ship!

Panicked and the only alternate paying method being Cash-on-Delivery and Combini (Outta question), I had to search for a deputy/proxy service other than my usual Tenso that offers to pay in my stead using COD, that’s when I found Japan to Door. Never really tried their service before (Eventho I have an account there since forever), I’ve decided to try it out since I’m outta options (And kinda recommended by Danny-san back in 2009 too).

This is when the nightmare started.
