Aren’t I Beautiful?

Posted in anime, figures, Kuroshitsuji, personal, preview, shota, Square Enix with tags , , , , , on July 24, 2010 by ampzr

Well I didn’t mean to be gone for as long as I have been. Not that it really matters, but I’ve been ill and we’ve been trying to figure out what the hell is wrong. I get to go to a specialist next week. Oh goodie! For now though I should be fine and able to keep posting! So lets get to something awesome…

This beautiful figure is available for pre-order! I ordered mine over at AmiAmi for ¥7,420. At the time of writing this about $85. Don’t forget that price is without shipping. It’ll be more if you decide to get him.  Here’s a link directly to the figure…Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) Static Arts Ciel Komadori Complete Figure[Square Enix]

Here are some more pictures. I just think the sculpting, painting, and design look great! Plus it’s Ciel in a dress. What’s not to love?

Al Azif, Another Blood Figure

Posted in figures, loli, Orchid Seed, review with tags , , , , , , on July 19, 2010 by ampzr

Today I got in my Al Azif, Another Blood figure. I managed to get them used at MyFigureCollection.net.

These figures are absolutely beautiful. They’ve been sculpted with extreme detail and the paint job is very nice. With Another Blood’s outfit all of the wavy parts are made out of a clearer plastic which adds a nice effect. Like it’s all different material. Al Azif and Another Blood are two separate figures and you might be able to take them apart but I didn’t really try. I have to say overall I’m very pleased with this purchase and I’m thankful someone was willing to part with them when they did.

Figure Review: Nia Teppelin – Wave & Sega

Posted in anime, figures, loli, review, Sega, WAVE with tags , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by ampzr

Along with receiving Hijikata Toshiro. I also got two Nia figures in today. Both the Wave short hair beach figure and the EX Sega figure. First we’ll talk about the Sega EX figure. (Yes I do have a lady-crush on Nia! She’s too cute!)

I have all the Sega Gurren Lagann sets. I just got the first set in today though. Similar to the Kuroshitsuji Sega sets the first Gurren Lagann set isn’t as well made as the later ones. Not to say it’s not well made but later they take more care in color details. It probably wouldn’t have hurt to have a different colored base considering both her and Yoko have red bottomed shoes. Her outfit is very well made. Nice pleats and there are even the little holes in the back. Also all the jewels stick out and are colored.

Here are all the Sega Nias together.

As I said the other figure I got in today was the short hair version of swimsuit Nia by Wave. She’s very cute and the details are very nice. I love the beach ball. It actually has seems like a beach ball and is see-through. She’s even using one hand to fiddle with her swimsuit. I like the Sega swimsuit design better than this one is still cute. The flower also has very nice details.

The Sega and Wave beach Nias together.

And another!

Yes, I did receive the EX Yoko today too but I don’t plan on keeping her. I didn’t open the box because of this. So no review.

Figure Review: Hijikata Toshirou – MegaHouse

Posted in anime, figures, I like hot dudes, MegaHouse, review with tags , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by ampzr

Today in the mail I received Hijikata Toshirou from Gintama. He’s from the GEM series by MegaHouse which also includes Sakata Gintoki and soon Okita Sougo.

I have to say this figure is spectacular. The details are great. Especially on the sword handle. I’m not sure what kind of paint is used but it has a very nice effect that gives some great shadows and highlights. Hijikata comes with few accessories which include a mayonnaise bottle and a mayonnaise bottle that is being squeezed out onto a bow of rice. The bowl even has it’s own stand which I find rather cute.

One thing to watch out for is that the plastic used to make the mayonnaise stream is a flexible plastic. If care is not taken I could see it breaking.

If you like Gintama then I recommend this figure for you. Even if you like to own male figures I recommend this figure for you. He’s still available for purchase on many figure sites. Including beNippon: Toushiro Hijikata.

Also if anyone has any idea of what is going on on that flap I’d be very grateful. I want golden mayonnaise…

Nendoroid’s Need a Home Too!

Posted in figures, good smile company, Nendoroid, review with tags , , , , , on July 6, 2010 by ampzr

Today I received Good Smile Company’s Japanese Life Set A and Japanese Life Set B.

I only own a few nendoroids. In fact I just sold Kaito and have Len up for sale now. That’ll only leave me with Sebastian. My hope when I purchased these was that the sets would also fit figmas because they’re the figure type I collect the most and I love to have accessories to pose them around. Sadly the rooms are too small for figmas. The accessories within the room could be used with figmas though. You’d just have to play in some other sort of household room.

The sets are nice though. Putting it together was a little confusing at first due to the plastic connection pieces and the fact that I tried to put the wall on upside down…from what I can tell though it looks like sets of all types can be hooked together. The instructions showed how to hook another room on top of the already built ones. I guess I’ll have to give it a try once I get the school rooms. The details are nice within the rooms and you can hang up the stickers to add a more lived in feel. Personally I like how well made the accessories like the pillows and food items where made. There is a dresser in set A. It is well made but it doesn’t open up.

If you collect nendoroids I suggest collecting the sets to have a place where your nendoroids can have fun and look cute.

I’ve talked about this site before but it’s always worth another mention. If you’re into collecting anime, manga, and video game merchandise go to this site!

My Figure Collection

The site has gone through a lot of changes since the last time I talked about it. Not only can you keep track of your figures but also miscellaneous merchandise like dakimakuras, cups, and other random goods. My figure collection is a great place to keep track of your inventory, orders, and have a wishlist. They have contests to win figures and a great community. Also there’s a sales page where users sell their figures. You can find some older figures for sale this way which is nice. The search engine has also been improved. Have fun & send me a friend invite if you join! My user name is Ampzr.
