FFFFFFFFinally <3

Lookie what I~~ got~~~ ♥

That’s right~

I finally got a new bg box thing so I won’t have to use my bed/chair as a table anymore.

Oh, and I picked up Alter’s Miyafuji Yoshika as well as Koto’s Gertrude Barkhorn.

Not to mention finally getting one of the figures that got me into collecting in the first place, Alter’s  Narika Shihoudou from Beat Blade Haruka.

Sergeant Yoshika Miyafuji is 1/8, and sculpted by Houjun Otoyama, who also sculpted Alter’s Hideyoshi and Hyakka Ryouran’s Hattori Hanzo.

Her trademark cheerfulness is definitely the selling point.

Her loli build + sukumizu just makes it a lot more interesting ;D

The striker unit she’s wearing is her old one, based on the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, since she hadn’t outgrown it when the figure came out.

Her base lists her stats and specs. In other words, her measurements.

Her Type 99 Aircraft cannon. The Type 99 carried a 60 round drum, the heavier fixed installation model 100, which makes the anime pretty unaccurate xD

Oh well.

Captain Gertrude Barkhorn ( I swear she was a Flight Lieutenant in Season 1 e_e) is 1/8 as well, and sculpted by Teruyuki (M Field). I haven’t found any of his or her other sculpts yet, but if I’m correct, Trude is the 2nd big sculpt by Teruyuki.

It’s ok, they’re not pantsu. o <ob

Koto’s Strike Witches figures all use this elaborate magic circle base, which is the same circle that comes out under them when they take off, as well as their shield.

The paint job on her striker, based on the Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-6, is much more detailed and much more elaborate than Miyafuji, even though they carry approximately the same price tag. In fact, a lot of Koto’s figures are relatively higher quality than similarly priced figures, imo anyways.

More examples of this is the weathering effect on her MG42 ( that or it got chipped up in production >_>)

and the Type 99 she carries in her other hand… I don’t know why a Karlsland soldier is using a Fuso gun either. I thought she uses a machine gun in both hands, either MG131 or MG151s according to Wiki.

I love the folds and curves in her uniform too.

I’m hoping to get my hands on Charlotte, as well as Eila and Lynette. I already have Perrine and Lucchini on pre-order ;D~

Finally, of course, Narika.

Try and find an angle where she isn’t pretty. I dare you.

mmm~ the mecha fanatic in me is going wild.

So is the low leg pantsu lover in me.

The base is sorta plain though, and I’m not a big fan of the stand type. VN02 is roughly this type too, but Narika seems to be a lot more balanced.

Cute, simple facial expression.

I will say this though, she’s pretty wide for a figure. Her ribbons whip out like Choun’s spear, which makes it scary to shift her aroudn the table at times.

Luckily I cleaned up my room quite a bit before Momo sent me the Manda-link and my subsequent order confirmation 20 seconds later, so my table had quite a bit of room.

I still have room for at least 5 more figures, maybe another 3 in front of the CD/iPod player, if the bases are small. See how the ribbons and the spear are going all over the place? Good thing her base is wide enough for me to balance a nendo or puchi-nendo on it, thus giving me more room. I’ll snap pics of Manaka later; I have a second BRS nendo as well as the figma with Rin atm.

Taken last night, which explains the horrible lighting.

As you can see, I put up the first f several glass shelves where my puchinendo army now resides, as well as a pair of Sheryls and the non-scale Taigas.  My other Sheryls, as well as Marisa, Flandre and Pest-X have been moved to over to the other table because of the amount of space they take up, with the shelf under them reserved for ACs.  Gundams/VFs/Knightmares are on the other shelf, with the top layer reserved for my Shinkis. Theres 4 on pre-order atm ;D~

The Rinko wall scroll is now on the other wall, and depending on how things go, I might take off the Haruhi/Shana wall scroll for others that might come in. I probably won’t use that wall for figures though.

The mess is actually from last night, when Narika and some other stuff came in. It’s still a lot cleaner than when it was before ok >: Now that I can get into my closet, I might hang posters or a daki from the door that slides, or shove box mountain in there after I clean it out.

Like my Wii sitting on the bottom shelf there? My sister is the only one who knows about it xD~ Noblesse’s legs are sitting on top of the Working!! mat, that’s sitting on top of box mountain.

Still plenty of room to hang posters/put in shelves. Hopefully, I can get some pillows, so that I can put use Rinko as more than a wall decoration. Same with Mina, Taiga, Ookami as well as Lucchini and Futaba Aoi when they come in. That way, I can shift the posters down more, and have more shelf space. I wanted the free standing types at first, but my room is just too small for them.

Speaking of dakimakuras, Ookami Ryouko’s came in the mail just days before.

I actually kinda like this art style. It’s unique, sexy and cute. Doesn’t capture her Tsun too much in this depiction though >:

  1. Meow, btw, sunlight + figures = no. >:
    Their colours might fade. And in some cases they’ll smell like PVC @_@

    • Yeah, I know :3 I usually have blinds down so it’s dark. I have them open only when I’m taking photos xD

  2. If some one desires to be updated with newest technologies then he must be go to see this
    web page and be up to date everyday.

  3. Very good post! We will be linking to this great content on our website.

    Keep up the good writing.

  4. Good answers in return of this query with real arguments and explaining
    the whole thing on the topic of that.

  5. Not so for Raleigh, perhaps due to the presence of
    the nearby UNC Dental School. There are some health care centers providing facility
    of consultant by charging a small amount of fee. The main aspect is regarding the care imparted
    on your teeth.

    This will decrease certain expenses such as air fares
    and hotel bills. Creating a powerful plan of attack
    includes deciding on the topic of your business, choosing the types of products
    you’ll sell, what form of business website you need to use (blogs, copy writing sites, review sites), how we will market, what marketing materials you are going to write. Article marketing is among the effective tools that could send traffic for a website or affiliate links free of charge.

  6. naturally like your web site but you need to take a look at the
    spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with
    spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome
    to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll certainly come
    back again.

  7. Hello! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my
    good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I
    will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a
    good read. Thank you for sharing!

    Thankfulness to my father who stated to me regarding this
    website, this website is in fact amazing.

  8. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
