It’s been a full year since the announcement and the limited time pre-order period of the Macross Frontier x Volk collaboration, Dollfie Dream Sheryl Nome and Dollfie Dream Sister Ranka Lee… The long wait has finally ended when Volks deliver the shipments of these songstress to their owners all over the world.
Due to overwhelming response during the pre-order phase, Volks has opted to do three different delivery periods of the shipments, one at the end of each month starting from the 31st of October.
Luckily my DDS Ranka Lee belongs to one of the earlier shipments, reaching the mainland shores just opposite my island in about a week’s time after leaving the factory on the 4th of November.
Unfortunately, due to her excessive value and the size of the package, Ranka-chan has been detained by the Customs during the just passed mid-week. It wasn’t until the weekend of the same week that I was able to rescue her by paying a modest amount of ransom fees.
Thankfully the amount isn’t that overwhelming as I initially predicted the fees might consist of 6% + 10% tax on top of the total value + shipping. Even the officer in charge is kind enough for giving a slight discount. XDc
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).
Tama-chan hasn’t been quite active these past few Moons, due to certain upgrades she’s been slowly getting part-by-part… :3c
Had her undergone a retinal surgery just a few days ago, Tama-chan received an eyeful of boost in her visual department..^_~
It has dawned to me that I’ve neglected the poor kitsune musume for many moons now… 0:
Good thing my laziness failed its die roll, allowing me to have another wonderful yet exhausting morning hours well spent with my Tama-chan…^_~
