Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Oh What Have I Done?

I just won two auctions on ebay. One i already regret, the other i can’t wait till i get it. I found this one person who was selling this ultra rare figurine and i just had to have her. I’ve been looking for my own for a few months now and i’ve only seen two on ebay, both well over $200+ shipping. I also found a few on Yahoo Auctions Japan, but none of the sellers ship internationally, plus they seem fake to me. The ultra coveted Max Factory 1/8 Naru.

I’m so glad i found this figure, i’ve heard some good things from this seller and she’s guaranteed to be real or my money back. I was a last minute bidder and i snagged her for $162.50. At first i thought, “Holy crap did i just spend that much on a figure!?!?!?!?!” But then i have before, my E2046 Haruhi cost me well over $175. I’m just so glad i’m finally going to get my hands on this figure.

The other figure is Kotobukiya’s Shouko-san. Part of me regrets this as it was purely an impulse buy and i didn’t need it at all. I was just talking to deftoned about how much i love having money in the bank, looks like i’m back to being broke for a little bit.

At least i got her for an amazing price, only $21.50. She’s practically was practically a steal. I’ll be happier with my recent purchases once i get them but for now, it just seems like such an extravagant expenditure right now since i need to be saving moneys. oh well, now i’m gonna try my best to go back to my budget.

    No complaining about lack of money on MSN for the next 2 months!! It’s rare and pretty, but no figure is worth that much money in the long run.

    Holy!!! Spending $162.50 on a figure…
    The most I ever spent on a figure was on my Figma Konata which is extremely limited. I got it for $120 including shipping.
    I like to bid on ebay too. I get some of my figures I can’t in stores so I get them on ebay. I just recently won the Lucky Star Nendoroid set for $79.99. Good price for me…

    $21.50 for shouko is a steal but i prefer her to be in her original colours.

    $162.50 for a figure! o_o THAT GOT TO BE THE MOST EXPENSIVE PVC ever! (right?) O_O

    One hundred and *censored* sixty-two dollars in You @$$ Dee. My gawd.

    On eBay I call that overpriced. Period. Last-minute bidder or not.

    If you really like her though, congratulations. I am not paying over 50 USD for a Max Factory Kureha…though current bid finishings are always around 80-90 USD excluding shipping. Bah.

    Gordon: No. Most expensive PVC are limited ones. Like my Mai (228 SGD convert into USD yourself) after discount.

    Being the n00b that I am, I personally prefer the second figure (the $20 one) better than the $160 one. Her shoes just look so cute (don’t blame me – I’m a girl). XD

  9. cemex says:

    Heh, $160’s nothing. My record is $250+ shipping
