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.

A Gift For an Anniversary

“A Birthday is the day when you’re celebrating yourself being born to this world.” From the immortal words of Emiya Shirou, the memelord of Fate franchise.

After all, people died when they are killed, he once said. ^^;

Tanjoubi_2017_01

I don’t really celebrate my birthday much nowadays, as it usually falls on a weekday (Meaning extra exhausting day of working). And with my sister’s (One day later), my cousin’s (Another day later) and my grandma’s (Several days later) birthday are also within the span of days, all of us are lumped together in one large celebration, usually only a grander dinner than usual.

For the most parts, the Lunar New Year is always around the corner, so there are some years we even joined the birthdays and the Lunar New Year celebration together… orz

Chibi Good Wife of an Extra Fate

The followings are excerpts from the GSC official site as well as from Kahotan’s wordpress post

From the popular game ‘Fate/EXTRA’ comes a Nendoroid of the ‘good wife’ with a foxy appearance – Caster! She comes with three face plates including a smiling face, a combat expression and a winking expression. 

Optional parts includes the ‘Eightfold Blessing of Amaterasu’ mirror as well as the charms she uses for her skills. She also comes with hands shaped like foxes for a rather cute pose, as well as parts to recreate her ‘Charm: Gyokutenhou’ skill. Kneeling parts for a more relaxed appearance are also included!

Be sure to enjoy the adorable Nendoroid Caster in your collection!

Nendo_Caster_Extra_01

The Caster from Fate/EXTRA known for her cute, fox-like appearance is joining the Nendoroid series at long last! ♥

Caster’s cute fluffy ears and tail as well as her Japanese-style outfit with a bit of a sexy side have all been converted into Nendoroid size in lovely detail!

A Wonderful Hobby Announcements of the Summer

As usual, every time WonFes comes, my social mediums will be flooded with lots of updates on upcoming figures and stuff…  XDc

Today is no exception as it is the day of Wonder Festival 2016 Summer! 

WF2016S_WHL4U24

A Gathering of Collectors

Got an invitation to join a gathering of us local collectors of various anime/manga/game figures and toys, last weekend.

We were encouraged to bring along some of our collections for display, as this is also an exhibition event or sort, in a local mall close by.

Anime_Figures_Collectors_Gathering_01

Incidentally within the same day, there are other events going on around town, on the island and main land. The Bounenkai, a cosplayers event at another mall nearby; Danny Choo’s Culture Japan Night (Noon infact, just like the one 3 years back, same venue even… ^^;) at yet another venue, still within the island; And Day 2 of an ACG event called TAGCON in the main land.

As I’ve already promised and committed to turn out in the Anime Collectible & Games Penang event, I’d to abandon the idea of attending the rest, although my close friends did managed to visit them in my stead. XDc

A Tease of the Holy Night

Merry Christmas everyone! 

Nothing much this year due to an extremely narrow schedule for the weekend. 

Xmas_2015

Schoolmate’s wedding luncheon to attend to and a figure collectors’ event (3 events in total fall on the same day and time!!! Had to ditch the other 2 due to already committed on this one…) to take part as well…  

Nevertheless, here’s a shot of some of my newest Nendoroid collections that I’ve finally unbox, celebrating the Holy Night… ^^;

Acquisitions of the Trip

Although I’ve finished all my reports on my Anime Festival Asia 2015 experience, I’ve yet to showcase my acquisitions from the course of this pilgrimage. =w=

I barely spent a dime fortune within the exhibition halls, only really gotten a couple of stuff (And a DIY) from the GSC booth… A majority of my real prizes came from outside the event itself… 

Anyway, many thanks to the organisers, I’ve managed to obtain a pass to enter the halls and stage area as a, well, media. ^^;

Trip_Loot_01

For this I salute the ones involved in the decision to set aside one pass for me. o7

Apparently there are two levels for Media passes: only those with Media (1) enjoy the privilege to snatch piccies during the stage events normally prohibited to regular visitors and Media (2) holders.

Figures @ AFA15

Posters and promotional items aside, the booths within the halls at Anime Festival Asia 2015 are fully packed with various figures of genre and sizes.

Some cute, some sexy, some cool, some extraordinary. =w=

So Petit, Yet Bearly a Gunpla

Originally released together with Mama’gguy in Beargguy F as a set, the Petit’gguy’s small frame emits an unbearable aura of cuteness, most certainly in bid on attracting (Or as many veteran Gunota put it, cashing-in…) more female Gunpla builders to the hobby.

Seen in the anime (Gundam Build Fighters Try)’s ED sequence, the four Petit’gguys in different colour variations finally made their Gunpla début, in separate releases no less!

HG_Petit'gguy_01

The colour variations are obviously a representation of the main characters in the anime itself: Winning Yellow for Hoshino Fumina, Lightning Blue for Kousaka Yuuma, Burning Red for Kamiki Sekai and Future Pink for Kamiki Mirai.

The Masquerade of Cosplay Invasion 4

With the event titled as Cosplay Invasion 4, it would be a mystery if there aren’t any cosplayer stalking around the halls, don’t you think? 

CI4_Cosplayers_01CI4_Cosplayers_02

KanColle cosplay was pretty much the highlight of the event, with lots and lots of Kanmusume (And Kanmusuko) scattered all around…

The Dolls of Cosplay Invasion 4

Moving on from the many figures as seen in the last post, in this post we’ll shift our focus upon the larger dolls this time around that graced the very same booth.

Tama-chan came in her keyhole turtleneck on Day 1 and short kimono on Day 2… =w=

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.

25襲来

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.

Nendoroid_25252_01Nendoroid_25252_02

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

First Half of the Displays at COSPAR³

A continuation from my last post and as mentioned before, COSPAR³ stands for Collector Oriented Social Party 2014, which of course meant there are many display exhibits of figures of various types, contributed by dedicated comrade collectors, including myself. ^_~

COSPAR³_Display_01

Due to the amount of photos taken during these two days, I’ll split them into two separate posts.

Behold the first half of all the figures shots I’ve got. =w=

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.

あなたのハートににこにこにー♪

It’s July the 22nd, a day significant to the Love Livers as it is the birthday of Yazawa Niko, the buchou of Idol Research Club as well as a part of μ’s, a School Idol Unit.

Despite being one of the oldest of the unit, she looks the youngest amongst the 9-girl-ensemble and proud of it. XDc

To coincide and in celebration of the 25252 Day, Kahotan tweeted a fully painted prototype of Nendoroid version of her! ^~^

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) 

Nendoroid_Kancolle_Kongou_01

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

良妻たるもの、節約節約♪

After a couple of months of delay as well as a prolonged delivery due to the galloping holidays, Tama-chan latest scaled figure finally reached ashore, safely docked in my den earlier last week.

After a fatal accident that befell upon Tama-chan (Dollfie Dream ver.), I’ve finally got myself to gether for a session of photo shooting this new subject. :3c

As always, the obligatory box shot.

Printed in a nice pinkish-black hue, the packaging has several display windows in the shape of Sakura (Cherry Blossom) petals all around the box.

Sisterly Love… Winter Sonata

February the 14th, the Saint Valentine’s Day. A day where couples of the world celebrate. Also celebrated by forever-arones all around as the Singles Awareness Day. XDc

4koma_63_Feature

The 15th day of the 1st month of the Lunar Year also falls on the same day. Called the 元宵/十五晚 (Yuan Xiao/Chap Goh Meh), which is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day. Such coincidence! :3c
