Twin Dolls of a Grand Order

With the surging popularity of the mobile salt game Fate/Grand Order, especially with the recent release of the North American English version, it’s no doubt Volks would want to ride the hype and make bucks with this license.

In fact, they made similar collaboration with the Type-Moon license a before too, with the various versions of Sabers and Nero and other Fate series characters into their equally popular 1/3 Dollfie Dream series.

Announced a few day back, it’s no surprise Volks is on the move again with a new Pre-Order project “Fate/Grand Order x Dollfie Dream”, they had the same thing a few years back during Type-Moon’s 10th anniversary, involving DD Saber Fate/Extra ver. and DD Saber Alter 2nd Ver ≧w≦

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.

タマちゃんのバレンタインの日

Love is in the air

Everywhere I look around

Love is in the air

Every sight and every sound

And I don’t know if I’m being foolish

Don’t know if I’m being wise

But it’s something that I must believe in

And it’s there when I look in your eyes

Fiery Rooster Entering a New Lunatic Year

The Monkey stopped going apes at the end of this season, making way for the Rooster to cock a doodle doo!

Please bear with me and excuse my animal puns… :P

LNY_2017_01

The guilt of neglecting Ranka-chan for a long time now has finally caught up to me, so I guess I should let her come out of the closet and be the kanban musume this year in the celebration of this prosperous Lunar New Year. =w=

Tama-chan can just stay back, relax and enjoy the festive season this time…

「勝つのはご主人様に決まってますけどね」

Of all the many years of patient waiting ever since the release of the original PSP JRPG Fate/Extra, stretching from participating in multiple official polls (Where GSC asked of the ACG chara the collectors wanted, in scaled figure/Figma/Nendo form…), to myself subtly hinting and out-right asking the GSC staff (At events, on Twitter and other social mediums about the possibility of a Figma of my beloved foxy Miko), the Figma version of Fate/Extra’s Caster has finally been announced earlier this year.    

Time-skipped several months later, she has finally been released to the public a few weeks back.

No doubt I got my hands on one, taking another fortnight before she finally reached my place, after having to rescue her from the Postal Dude (Once again the office refused to deliver my stuff to my place, you can read all about their irresponsible behaviour here…).

Caster, her true name being Tamamo no Mae, came packaged in a standard, simple design, as per the newer generation of Figma box art.

Clad in her colour theme, black and bluish purple (purplish blue?), the over all simple element with minimum logo and text truly brings out the main focus of the package, the transparent window layer that shows off part the main figure herself.
