April/May/June Loot

GollyGeeItsBooGollyGeeItsBoo3 vuotta sittenLoot
**WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY**

So, I decided to start doing loot posts every three months considering I am still a beginner collector and do not get much every month. Once I get more into it and if my months become more loaded maybe I'll post these more often. I'll also post con loots separately. So for April, May and June of this year I've purchased 4 figures and a few straps. I do have more straps and posters that are on their way but I'll just throw those into the next loot post.

Just a few group shots:

My strap collection is growing really fast, soon I'm not going to have room for them! I have them on three different pieces of cork board on my door, but even then it's a struggle. How do you guys display your straps and keychains?

Unfortunately Yukine suffered some damage when the cork board that my straps are on fell >.<

I'm pretty happy with the newest figures in my collection. While I was really excited for Yuzuki Yukari, IA quickly became my favorite. Eren's prize figure is definitely my least favorite in my entire collection because, as most people were saying, he is just made very poorly. I don't regret spending the money on him just because he was cheap, and I wasn't expecting much for a prize figure, but he really is just terrible.

Eren Jaeger Prize Figure (FuRyu):
Like I said, I'm very disappointed with this one. Even for a prize I was expecting a little more from the company considering I've heard some good things about them when it comes to prizes. He is very rough, has a lot of paint transfers, some chips, and it seems like I'm not the only person that has the problem with his eyes being too big for the spot allowed for them. Again, since he was cheap I'm not too worried about it and I wouldn't pawn him off on someone else. If anything, I can use him as an experiment for fix ups. I didn't take too many pictures of him, there wasn't much to show off aside from imperfections. And it really does look like he's about to bite off his arm sometimes...

Gumi - Native 1/8 (Aquamarine)
I'm pretty happy with this one. Aside from just being well done, she's cute, has bright eyes, and her hair is excellent. I have a thing for gradient hair and this is one that was done right. She is also my favorite female Vocaloid (alongside IA) so I was dying to have her. I've never bought from this company before, but after purchasing Gumi and IA I'll definitely do so again. I'm looking forward to Chaika especially (ITEM #198020).

Yuzuki Yukari - 1/8 (Pulchra)
Again, really satisfied. She is just as I was expecting her to be and only had a few minor paint transfers on her jacket. Her box art is really cute too. Rather than being plastered all over with the same picture there were 3 different ones. My only issue with her is that she seems to lean a tad, but overall nice quality. Since I'm still in my beginning stages of collecting it's been nice to feel out different companies. With Yukari, thus far I like Pulchra. I also really like their Levi (ITEM #183924), even though I didn't buy it...yet, and am waiting to see their Sinon (ITEM #198623).

IA - 1/8 (Aquamarine)
So, this has to be my favorite purchase in the last few months. There's not much to say other than she's gorgeous. Again, minor paint flaws that aren't much of a problem. I really love the angle of her body and the flow of her hair. I am absolutely in love with her hair. Also really adore her box art. IA is my favorite female Vocaloid along with Gumi, so had to have her as well. I also see her as a symbol for the Kagerou Project, so that was another reason to get her.

Kagamine Len - Nendo Petit (Good Smile Company)
I bought both Yukari and IA from a fellow MFC user who was nice enough to surprise me with a little extra something. They threw Len in and I couldn't have been more excited because, first of all, Len is my everything and I can never have enough, second being that this was the one mini nendo of him that I did not own at the time. I decided to take a picture of him and then one with the other two mini Lens. He's too precious.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchases as of late. My collection still feels small compared to many other collectors on here, but hopefully that will change. But it is slowly growing, which, unfortunately, comes with the issue of space. I'm starting to have difficulties with keeping the boxes stored. How do you guys store your boxes? Do you display them or hide them away? But on a brighter note, there's still a lot more to come and I'll continue to post on my ever growing collection! Have you guys got anything good lately or are excited for anything on the way?

That was really long but thanks for listening~

GollyGeeItsBoo (3 vuotta sitten) #2319953Aw that's a shame. But on the bright side, when you DO find something it's probably the best feeling ever. Like finding a holy grail for your collection.

Oh, for sure! Everytime I find a new Baccano! related items it's an holy grail each time! Especially because there is not much documented from Baccano! merchandise here on MFC and other sites, so it's quite a surprise what's out there! ;D

Maakie (3 vuotta sitten) #2319866Well, ehm yes and no. xD Most of the series I like are quite old, so the douijnshi books and items are quite hard to find. D: Not that those are expensive, but they are rarely up for sale. T^T

GollyGeeItsBoo (3 vuotta sitten) #2315916That's annoying! I feel like the characters I like are 50/50. But I'd feel so lost if all my favorites had pretty much nothing D: At least you can buy doujin related stuff right?

Maakie (3 vuotta sitten) #2315610Yeah most of the series I'm into are not very well known...and with the popular series I like, my favorite characters are almost never the main characters, so also impossible to find merchandise! Q.Q But I guess hunting for the more rare stuff is fun too~! :)

GollyGeeItsBoo (3 vuotta sitten) #2301147Yeah just as you guessed, I have no idea what that is. But after looking it up I can see how you thought they look alike! They do in a way, the clothes, the hair style and color is similar. I know how you feel about the less known stuff, or at least stuff not getting merchandise. It's the worst ;A;

sukimae (3 vuotta sitten) #2304266I preordered the Madoka Kaname Yukata ver nendoroid a while back, so I'm really excited to get her, and I will be ordering quite a big (and expensive) haul at the end of the summer which will be amazing.
She's cute @.@ I've never gotten into Madoka, but she's really cute. I'd like to own her faceplate to throw on some other nendo. Ah I hear you, my September is such a mess!

Maakie (3 vuotta sitten) #2300258Ah, it's from an really really not well known anime. xD He reminded me of Ennis from Baccano! Baccano! has almost no merchandise so my heart jumps when I see stuff that slightly looks like Baccano! characters. xD Isaac looks nothing like Ennis, but on the strap with the clothing and hairstyle it looked very alike. xD

GollyGeeItsBoo (3 vuotta sitten) #2286727Yep no problem! Ah who? Because Isaac is actually one of my favorites. He's the one I ended up putting on my phone.
