A new year, a new dawn! A Lunar one that is… ( | ‿‿ | )
For the uninitiated, it is the Year of the Goat, or Sheep, or Ram, or whatever you like it to be… :P
Sorry for the reuse of the same neta, but I think the 4koma is very suitable for this Lunar New Year.
After two months worth of uneasy wait since its release date, I’ve finally procured my
holy grail Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam from a comrade supplier, albeit missing its L.E.D. set… D:
According to inside news, Bandai actually had an internal smuggling problem at their China factories, causing shortage of the L.E.D. units worldwide.
There’s also another rumour that Bandai rejected many shipments of the said L.E.D. units due to their lower than usual quality, thus had to freshly remade the units causing massive delays, much to the dismay of Gunpla fans.
Not sure if they are true, but my own L.E.D. set would definitely be delayed to at least May… >,<
Anyway, here’s a look at the packaging of the Perfect Grade…
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
During the beginning of December last year, a sexy Japanese cosplayer posted a tweet of herself in a Turtleneck Sweater she got from COMFILAX, a fashion brand.
The series of photos shared quickly gained recognition amongst the twittersphere and soon became a meme.
Dolls (Especially those of 60cm in height, playfully referred to as musume (Daughters) by their loving parents) have made a prominent presence amongst the community attending past AFAs, especially during AFA12…
While not as grand as the gathering in 2012, many musume did made their attendance to this year’s event as well…
Exit Tunes, in promoting their new Vocaloid, had a custom Mayu doll on display at their booth.
