Do pay Tama-chan a visit, she’ll be roaming around the halls distributing her new Class Cards, occasionally stopping by booths to mingle with others… ^_~

タマちゃんの霊基再臨

Arrived at my door steps via FedEx is a tightly packaged parcel from Korea, a shipment that I have waited for roughly half a year by now. 

Within is a masterpiece from Black Swan, of which I have commissioned them to give Tama-chan a thorough make-over, thus the lack of her appearances during these past months…

As before mentioned, Black Swan commissions are not on the cheaper side. This job alone took me six months of separate installments before I finally cleared the cheques while they were working on the commission during the same period. 

However one can truly be confident of their work for being the best of the best. My past dealings and commissions with them, albeit in a smaller scale, impresses me over and over.

Let Me See Your Identification

The newest wave of the ever popular LEGO Star Wars buildable figure series saw a return to the original trilogy, with the release of the might of the Empire’s finest soldiers.

Unveiled earlier this year, the news caught my eyes as soon as it entered the Holo-Net, as this is what I’ve waited for the past year ever since my acquisition of LEGO Star Wars 75111 Darth VaderLEGO Star Wars 75110 Luke Skywalker and LEGO Star Wars 75114 First Order Stormtrooper

I too possessed a couple of bootleg buildable figures (A second First Order Stormtrooper and a Captain Phasma) which I’ve yet to review on this blog, and perhaps I never will.

Anyway, a look at the box of both buildable figures show a substantial difference between the two: the LEGO Star Wars 75531 Stormtrooper Commander’s package is pretty much similar to the previous releases as it has only the figure itself, while the LEGO Star Wars 75532 Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike is roughly 3 times the width of the former, due to the inclusion of the vehicle…

Chibi Foxy Waifu of an Extra Fate

The ever-loving Caster from the Fate/Extra series, Tamamo no Mae finally made her appearance in the cutesy adorable form of a Nendoroid.

It may take her almost half a decade to finally arrive in this as well as her Figma form, but nonetheless the wait is worth every seconds. <3

Packaged in your standard Nendo box design and format, Tama-chan boasts a number of optional parts that will surely tickle any Master’s fancy.

Clad in her signature deep bluish segmented kimono as well as her gigantic but girlish bow, the Tama-chan figure is pretty detailed in the application along with her eye-catching fox ears and tail.
