HUGE January/February/Birthday LootHUGE January/February/Birthday Loot

solluxcaptorsolluxcaptor7 kuukautta sittenLoot
It's time for another loot post? Wow, the months go by fast! I'm actually scared that we're this deep into 2018 already... It's been two months since my last one and already this year is off to a heavy start loot-wise, it's safe to say my descent into Yu-Gi-Oh hell continues and this time it's the 'HELP I LOVE GX NOW' edition. Keep tuned for more updates on my incredibly fast growing addiction.

Here's a photo of the loot in today's post! (Kind of, theres actually a lot of things that aren't here..)

...Yeah, I've kinda given up on making these big group picures look presentable, sorry guys. I just can't lie all this out on my bed and have space for it, let alone remember to put everything into the picture. I admitted defeat and edited the figure I fccot to put in the photo into it afterwards and just added a bunch of sparkly effects to distract from how terrible it looks. Oh well, it gives you an idea anyway! It serves it's purpose and that's what we need.

Small goods first of course, like always.
https://s14.postimg.cc/ecdemjoi9/DSCF3677.jpg
That's a lot of Yu-Gi-Oh! huh? I am still collecting Kaiba stuff like a crazed addict, if I see something online and I don't own it yet you bet I'm hitting that order button before I even process the thought fully. ...Is that bad? Probably. I just really, really love Kaiba. I'd die for him, so throwing my money at him is nothing really.
Also included the beautiful Legendary Collection set I got in here because LOOK at that beautiful box and those anime accurate god cards. Inside are a bunch of old school style packs and I actually got a secret rare in here, neat stuff :D And yes that is a whole box full of Yugioh straps (well they're kinda like clips) and they are SO cute. Check out that cute phone case too and... well, everything!

Wait there's more, I fccot some stuff. ;;
https://s14.postimg.cc/l2tvvzr3l/DSCF3683.jpg
Yep, more Kaiba. And the world's softest Kuriboh plush. I love GX now, and I've decided I'll make a Yugi & Judai duo ita bag because they deserve it so I'm buying what little merchandise Judai has :D

Okay, now I have to show you one of my favourite things in my entire collection and perhaps in existance.
https://s14.postimg.cc/ggxrnnspt/DSCF3797.jpg
"But why? That's just an alarm clock?" I'm sure you ask when looking at this photo. I assure you that this is absolutely not just ANY alarm clock, this clock has 3 custom lines spoken (or... shouted) by Kaiba's voice actor to wake you up, in increasing severity. The full Kaiba treatment. There's nothing more I want to hear when I wake up in the morning.
I actually have so much to say about this one alarm clock because there are SO many things I love about it and the whole deal around the release, but I'm saving that for a later article since I really want to make a whole article and record a video of the audio featuring an English translation of the lines by REIICHIRU. Keep an eye out of that one if you're interested! :D

And these postcards from the KC Cafe/Tower Records collaboration!
https://s14.postimg.cc/sit5hujyp/DSCF3851.jpg
I would do ANYTHING to go back in time and visit the KC Cafe. I regularly look at people's photos from it and the few videos that exist (I guess people aren't supposed to take videos) and just... cry. It's glorious. The food, drink, desserts are all BEAUTIFUL and there's even a table where you can sit across from Kaiba or any of the other characters if you want. The exclusive merchandise was gcceous and is almost impossible to find now. Unfortunately I don't have a working time machine just yet so I settled for picking up these post cards. My favourite is the cafe scene one! Here's some more shots of my favourites under the spoiler:

It comes in this REALLY pretty fancy envelope!

https://s14.postimg.cc/4rtrzqrhd/DSCF3857.jpg
My favourite one of all! The Kaiba part of this picture is my phone wallpaper and I'm OBSESSED with it.

https://s14.postimg.cc/9dpw8dfo1/DSCF3858.jpg
Kaiba....... I love you..........

https://s14.postimg.cc/svkjo1ho1/DSCF3859.jpg
Mokuba is so cute!!! I just want to pick him up and hug him.


I got some books/manga and a DVD!
https://s14.postimg.cc/txuq6l875/DSCF3862.jpg
I'll start off with the DVD since it's the odd one out, I've ALWAYS wanted a copy of the live action Rose of Versailles movie, but since it's old and I believe only got a Japanese release (despite being in English!) the copies online were like £100 for a DVD. I always intended to get one even if I had to pay a lot but thank god I waited, it got this beautiful remastered release for about 3,000 yen and wow, you'd never believe this movie was from the 70s with how well it is remastered. If your player can play region 2 DVDs (UK ones can) then I recommend picking this up, it is a Japanese DVD but the movie is fully in English.

Of course, there's Yu-Gi-Oh, shoutout to my uni for giving me book money to get R for free and to GIOGIO's family who are always so kind to me for the 3rd ominbus volume as a birthday gift. Also picked up this little guide which comes with a poster and two cards!

"My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness" is actually a manga I own in Japanese as I wanted to support the artist but now I picked up the English version, it is a very honest and personal account of depression and other feelings like that. I believe anyone who has suffered with anything similar can relate to at least some of it, and in my opinion shouldn't be put off by the explicit looking cover. This is not an explicit or sexual manga except one short, tasteful (and surprisingly heart warming) scene covers the writer's experience with a prostitute. I really appreciate the artist's guts in putting her very personal, emotional story out there in a format like this.

Some more DVDs I got!
https://s14.postimg.cc/42azn6w0x/29136928_1805801186381940_1310127379338756096_n.jpg
The two at the top I got for 50p each second hand, and the bottom ones were a gift from my dad. He called me up to say "I went into HMV and picked up all the Yugioh they had for you", he's the best :') I haven't seen Zexal at all yet so I'm pretty excited to try that!


Ok, we can move onto the figures now!

I'll start with Kirino, because it's been way too long since I bought a figure of my waifu.
https://s14.postimg.cc/bv1nfbewh/DSCF3805.jpg
This one is just a prize figure but I've been waiting for anywhere I shop at to list this again for a year... I really like the energetic pose and her cute casual model outfit. This one definitely looks better in real life but ever since I noticed her moe fang is missing I can't unsee it. I really wish she had it... ;-;

THE KING OF GAMES IS HERE.
https://s14.postimg.cc/rtad5gok1/DSCF3826.jpg
And wow, he looks amazing! Thanks to the lovely GIOGIO for getting me this one, I'm really impressed by how accurate the depiction of Yugi is in this figure. It feels like he came right out of the anime and I love the appropriately shiny effect his extremely tight pants have. Thank you, Yu-Gi-Oh character designs, for blessing us with that. Actually I had a little struggle getting his head off to add the puzzle and the same with his hand so I didn't force it to get the duel disk on, I like this more "casual" looking Yugi too. I'll try it with the jacket cape and duel disk another time of course :D

And he came with this impressive bonus:
https://s14.postimg.cc/cludl09j5/DSCF3836.jpg
It's HUGE! Just look how big it is compared to the one he's wearing.

Of course, Yugi needs his best friend.
https://s14.postimg.cc/svkjo0msx/DSCF3845.jpg
So I got Jounouchi too! I actually have a pretty tragic story to go with this one. I bought him second hand, "all parts included" from a site I've used plenty of times before. I got him and he's missing the hand that he uses to hold the cards... so I guess he can never duel :( I'm going to try messaging the site but I don't imagine they'll deal with me considering I waited over a month to open it. My fault I guess. I love him a lot anyways and I think this combo with the duel disk/thumbs up is pretty cool too!

I got this really cute Sagiri Nendoroid from Eromanga Sensei!
https://s14.postimg.cc/pbyly6wxt/DSCF3814.jpg
I love her a lot. All of her expressions are just so cute, I was convinced I would use her really embarrassed expression when I bought her but I saw this one in person and fell in love with it. Her eyes are so lovely I just couldn't use the one with closed eyes. Look at her cute blush!! I went with a simple pose for her because I suck at posing these things but might change it in future.

Finally got ahold of these chibi Yu-Gi-Oh figures! Not the whole set but the ones I wanted the most.
https://s14.postimg.cc/txuq6ivbl/DSCF3788.jpg
These things are RIDICULOUSLY hard to find and expensive for their size. All of them came with the speech bubbles too but I think they are kind of hard to use because if you want the bases to match and fit together you can't put them on... and their huge hair kinda stops them from coming together at all in Yugi and Jounouchi's case. Anyway I used Kaiba's because it was the only one I recognised what it meant at first glance (my Japanese sucks but I'm working at it) and because using them all just isn't really viable. Anyway I think they are SO cute and worth the trouble it took to hunt them down!! :D I want to get the rest of the set sometime.

Another Yu-Gi-Oh! figure I got is this gcceous Pharaoh Atem!
https://s14.postimg.cc/3pjlh53i9/DSCF3728.jpg
https://s14.postimg.cc/o9offm3tt/DSCF3715.jpg
I absolutely love everything about this figure! All of the gold accents just look beautiful and the pose with the cape is so dynamic. He looks so regal and impressive. I really love this version and I'm so happy to have it in figure form! Really cool to see the different base than the usual ones on these figures too, it has a kind of sand feel to give a kind of Egypt feeling.

Final Yu-Gi-Oh! Figure I got is this Yami Malik
https://s14.postimg.cc/cludl91w1/DSCF36882.jpg
Actually, I got this one brand new but the Duel Disk was broken inside... I don't have good luck with these figures it seems ;-; But I love him anyway and the duel disk should be an easy fix, his sculpt is amazing and there are lots of parts you can swap around! The millenium rod actually goes into his belt at the back but I liked it on the base so you could see it properly.

Also got this model kit of the Trueno 86 from Initial D, my first model kit ever! :D
https://s14.postimg.cc/bv1nfdk29/DSCF3867.jpg
Not much to show here since it isn't assembled. I showed this to my dad and he was really excited to build it with me, so I ordered it and we'll be doing that when we both have free time! It looks pretty complex with all the pieces inside so I hope I don't screw it up ahaha ;; If anyone has made kits like this, please give me tips ;-;

Also got some lovely commission pieces!
https://s14.postimg.cc/w2f37g4m9/29133911_1805800893048636_1966757123605921792_n.jpg
These two Kaiba plushies, I asked for these different outfits and loved the result :D I think I'll ask for the Duelist Kingdom one next if the commissioner is happy to make it. Duelist Kingdom is actually IMHO a really underrated outfit, he looks perfect in everything and anything though.

This exclusive Kaiba wall scroll was a REALLY lucky purchase!!
https://s14.postimg.cc/6v477rej5/26195897_1778532295775496_3439947673367752793_n.jpg
I managed to find someone willing to do pickups on these at Jump Festa JUST before the event started and they were really sweet and picked me one up, I love it! :D I'm determined to own all Kaiba merchandise so I should pick up these exclusive pieces while I have chance otherwise they are hard to get.

Also got these clear files
https://s14.postimg.cc/8o73vmx0h/DSCF3674.jpg
All Kaiba themed... of course. Can you tell that I have just a little obsession? Ok ok, Kaiba is my entire life. I'd like to frame them but I really fear I won't have space to put all these framed clear files which is a shame. I love them all, the ones that look like sketches from the movie frames are SO cool and the one with alternative dragon has a nice shiny matellic look to it and the bottom right one is probably my favourite visually because it is SO pretty!!

Another REALLY cool thing I got is this 20th anniversary Yu-Gi-Oh! box
https://s14.postimg.cc/k0jpdb33l/28166874_1799482633680462_7718391323747984044_n.jpg
To be honest I had no idea what this was when I first saw it for sale, just it was a picture of the box, so I was curious and researched online. I found out that it has a rubber strap of Dark Magician, Yugi + Kaiba badges, 12 stickers with the characters on them, 4 commemorative notes from Yugi/Atem/Kaiba/Bakura and this DM pouch! I absolutely needed to get it! :D

And I bought this Kaiba t-shirt which is now my favourite t-shirt ever
https://s14.postimg.cc/frezb5f9t/29136191_1805802279715164_2561670532881711104_n.jpg
I wear it all the time! It's kinda big on me, I think it's a unisex/mens medium or something and I'm tiny so it kinda buries me but I love the oversized look and it's SO comfy. I'd wear this every single day if I wasn't worried about damaging it eventually, if I got the chance to buy a second one I totally would but these are kind of rare to see. From an event that was promoting the DSOD movie I think!

Got these character towels too!!
https://s14.postimg.cc/f1w6z0jxt/DSCF3880.jpg
I wanted to get the Judai one to match with my Yugi/Kaiba ones because I really love him too. I think these three will look amazing together! Also picked up this Kaiba one, it's substantially thinner than the other ones but still long and I love the print!

I also got uh... this single children's duvet set for Yu-Gi-Oh GX.
https://s14.postimg.cc/5hckc52bl/DSCF3887.jpg
Ok, this is a sign I've lost control of my life but hold on a second, I have a goal. I really really want to have a whole Yu-Gi-Oh themed room ;-; Right now I have a double bed but to be honest it kinda bothers me since I don't need all this space, I only EVER sit and lie on one half of the bed, such a waste of space. So when I finally move out I'll have a nice single bed and I bought these in advance. I really love them so much!! Tempted to take the pillow sheets out already and just use them like cushions.

Can I fccet the life sized cutout of Kaiba that I got?
https://s14.postimg.cc/z7zoy8nep/27655148_1791024247859634_8313270493108088316_n.jpg
Of course I can't. This was the most extra and definitely one of the best purchases of my life. He now lives in my room and keeps me company since I live on my own. I really appreciate it actually, his silent moral support keeps me going!! I feel motivated when I see him, Kaiba would want me to work my hardest. And of course he makes me feel safe when I go to bed at night since he watches over me. Walking into my room it's hard not to jump at first until you get used to it because it really feels like a real person is in the room ;; Look how big he is!! I made a heart shape with him, I figured out I can do that and I loved it so much.

Finally my AMAZING duel disk from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
https://s14.postimg.cc/9dpw847vl/DSCF3869.jpg
Yeah, I overpaid like hell for this children's toy. It was absolutely worth it. It even lights up and you can put your life points on it, it's so cool!! I'm really amazed by it, maybe a little too impressed about this toy.
I paired it with my Judai cosplay (under the spoiler) which was a nice excuse to buy it :D

Anyway, thanks for reading my really long loot post!! Can you tell what my favourite thing ever is? Bless you if you got through all my ramblings and I hope you enjoyed it. Please do let me know what you liked, I love reading and responding to everyone here in the comments :D

Maakie (6 kuukautta sitten) #32488414So much nice YGO loot again! :) And about Malik's duel disk...mine has the same... With me, the duel disk randomly fell off after a few weeks of displaying. I fixed it multiple times with different methods , but it just keeps falling. :( I think it's a design flaw with the peg being too big. I love the figure, but this is so dissappointing. :( Nice cosplay pic btw! I also finally bought a duel disk once I started cosplaying Noah, because I got a 'reason' for it! :D
I'm always looking out for new YGO stuff! There is no such thing as too much in my eyes :P
Ahh really? It makes me sad to hear that this is a common problem with these ;-; I thought maybe mine just got shaken around too much during shipping or something. I'm still trying to figure out a good way to fix it because I want it to be permanent without ruining the duel disk ><
And ahh thank you, I agree it's best when you can justify it for cosplay reasons :P

solluxcaptor (7 kuukautta sitten) #31477379I know, right? They are beautiful!! I love the whole Yu-Gi-Oh Kotobukiya line even if I've had a few accidents with mine ><;;
I got it at Mandarake! They aren't very common to find though.


yeah agreed, the Yu-Gi-Oh Kotobukiya line is awesome!!! i did not get the whole line though. just the 9 of them.

chiisai-hime (7 kuukautta sitten) #31475449Nice YGO haul!
Haha, I love the heart you can make with god Kaiba's cut out <3
I was really close to getting the alarm clock when it released but couldn't justify that much for it in the end. His lines are really great though XD My favorite is the one basically abducting you to work as a KC slave!
The minis were like the second figures I ever bought way back when so I love them! Kaiba also has the one in the set with the Pharaoh and then Priest Seto has one too. Highly recommend looking for those next either on surugaya or auctions ^^

The only YGO merch I bought from Jump Festa were these www.jumpfesta.c... Still ridiculously overpriced, but those are my favorite pairings right there >//<
Hope you get Judai's figure later in the year!

Thank you!! I really love YGO!! And the cutout thing I literally couldn't stop doing when I realised it omg I was so happy, it's really cute!! ;-;

I managed to pick up the alarm clock for 8,000 I think, still expensive but better than the 10,000 retail. The lines are so so good ahaha oh my god I love them all.... I'll happily work as a KC slave any day if it's for Kaiba I mean uhh ;; ahaha

I love the mini set and I definitely intend to get them all!! Just probably not all at once because of how expensive and elusive they are :P I really wish they would get a re-release but I know sadly it won't ever happen >< I haven't bought from Surugaya yet but I keep intending to give them a try, thanks for the recommendation!

Those are so cute aaa I love them!!! ;-; And I have already pre-ordered Judai's figure, I'm so excited!


atunafish (7 kuukautta sitten) #31475359you and life-sized Kaiba look so cute together!! that height difference is so moe??? ///
i love those key animation clear files of Kaiba that you got, and hell yeah that duel disk looks so worth it. Pharoah Atem looks absolutely majestic. also, can't wait for your article on the Kaiba alarm clock :3 it's giving me ideas of possibly cutting out some audio/lines of my favourite characters and setting them as the alarm on my phone hehehehe *creepy smile*

omg thank you so much for saying we look cute and it's moe aaaaaa that's like probably one of the best comments I've ever gotten I'm blushing ;-;

Ah, key animation, that's the word I was looking for! I think those clear files are so cool. And hopefully I can make the alarm clock article/video soon because I'm very excited to share them!! :D omg yes do it, I'm happy I can inspire others to do the same :')

solluxcaptor (7 kuukautta sitten) #31475269Also speaking of prize figures, I ordered ITEM #639302 recently and I think I'm going to do a review on her :D She is so cute, cheerful and elaborate! I really like it better than most Miku scales...

Oh yeah, I understand that you appreciate plenty of prize figures! ^^ No worries! Yeah, gosh, that Miku's simply a most adorable bun - been keeping a close eye on her myself, for any favorable deals. Glad you picked her up & lookin' forward to your potential review, then! o/

by the way, where did you get the alarm clock?

I know, right? They are beautiful!! I love the whole Yu-Gi-Oh Kotobukiya line even if I've had a few accidents with mine ><;;

Takasugi (7 kuukautta sitten) #31476102Are those plush made by www.etsy.com/sh...? I own one by them too.
Yep!! :D They were so friendly to work with and I love their plushies!

ameri (7 kuukautta sitten) #31477286awesome loot post! i had no idea ygo was still so big and has so much merch. my friend is trying to get me to get into it but it has so many episodes now i wouldnt know where to start. i liked kaiba too when i was little and ygo was on cartoon network (?) but that was long ago lol. that pic of you and him is so cute, i love to see people who love their faves so much!!
Yugioh isn't huge anymore really but it'll always be a popular classic and it has a very dedicated niche set of fans! I'm quite happy to say that it does get merchandise on a regular basis, even if it's not as much as popular current shows :D It does have a lot of episodes which intimidated me too but just take it as it goes, each season is basically it's own separate arcs or sometimes like 2 arcs in one season so you can take breaks if you want! :D
Kaiba is the best... I never actually watched it as a kid but clearly you had great taste :P Aaaaa thank you omg I love him so much ;-;

yurii (7 kuukautta sitten) #31477267very nice! i admire your dedication to yu-gi-oh and Kaiba :> I loved the show as a kid and even got back into it when GX was on, Chazz was my favourite ♡ and i would love a figure of him haha
Do you plan on building the model kit? i'd be interested in seeing the final form :)

Thank you!! I'm really happy to hear that, I do pour a lot of love and dedication into it, and it makes me happy when others can recognise it. Nice choice, I really like GX too :D I think he might get a figure, they just started bringing out GX figures and I imagine he would be 2nd choice to get one after the protagonist of course so fingers crossed!

And yep I'm going to build it! I might post about it depending how it turns out, but it is my first time so I expect it to a be kind of beginner-like project ><
