Mecha Love… ユニバーサル挨拶


Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong? 



Numbered 444 (Was hoping for 25252 due to her favourite quote, oh well…) in the series, Nendoroid Yazawa Nico finally made her way to my hands after much hiccups between me and my supplier’s busy schedule to meet up for collection.


I’ve been waiting for 25252 to become a Nendo for quite some time now.

Good thing she’s the 1st in line amongst the 9 members of her group. XDc


Yes! 私の実力、見せてあげるネー

After many months of waiting, the highly anticipated Ship Daughteru finally reached my harbour for maintenance!

The Nendoroid Kongou from Kantai Collection, is a regular release. However, since I got her from GSC Online Store, she comes with a couple of extras not available through normal channels.


The special sleeve cover adorn on top of the regular Nendo template package, creating a rather beautiful scene of the Nendo engaging in a raging naval battle.

You could catch a glimpse at Kongou’s sister-ship Haruna behind her, hinting of her possible Nendo release in the near future. 


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) 


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)…


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.
