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]

GSC 1/8 Arin, Up for some golf?

Now I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never played Pangya. But i just had to get her! I saw Arin online first when my bf mentioned to me that he was playing the game. He mentioned there was a figure from GSC and that it looked good. I checked her out and she did in fact look pretty awesome but since she was sold out i didn’t really bother to try and look for her.

I found Arin by pure luck at Anime Expo ’08. I saw this one booth that was having a huge bargain sale and i checked them out. They were selling mostly bad figures but they had some that were just on sale since the box was damaged.

I asked for her price and they told me she was $20USD, I was in shock. Was she a fake? Was she broken? Did she have some sort of defect to be sold so cheaply?

Nothing was wrong with her at all, the shop owner let me open up her box and make sure of that first hand. Only problem was the box was a bit smashed in and water damaged on the bottom.

Now for someone like me who keeps the boxes normally i’d say no. I like keeping all my boxes and having them in the best condition possible. But for $20! i couldn’t say no!!!

She really is a beauty and i’m very glad i was able to get her.

While having her in my collections makes em want to try the game. I also know that i’m very very bad at games in general and get bored of them very easily. So it would just end up being wasted hard drive space…

Very Nice polka dot panties. I’m so used to solid color panties on figures that this was an interesting site to see. Do you boys prefer solid colors or patterns? how about us girls? I don’t’ care as long as they fit and my heiney looks nice in them ^_~

Her eyes are very nice and make it looks like she’s thinking of someone thats not near her. Most of the time when they try and paint eyes like this it looks like they are staring off in the space but i think her eyes and this pose make her seem like she’s thinking about someone…

the paint is really well done on her, practically no problems with the paint at all!

I love her blue hair, she really stands out in my collection since she’s so bright and cheery.

love the design on her dress and the shading on her legs.

I like the added touch of the blushing cheeks as well. As I said, like she’s thinking about someone or maybe something embarrassing…

Arin is really a lovely figure and since i got her for such a deal i really have no complaints. Even if i paid retail i’d still love her just as much.

    I would hate play golf in that rough. 😀 I do like the hair on that figure though… quite nice.

    i was going to take her to a local golf course, but with gas prices being high i opted for my front lawn. hehe

    Arin is a silly goose but one of my favorite Pangya characters. You got a very good deal!

    It doesn’t look as bad as thumbnails do, since I have never seen it reviewed, but it’s fitting that you took pictures on location. The pose itself is based on the official stock artwork, and matches it fairly accurately. In-game, the polka dots are red ^^;; but that this detail wasn’t forgotten, is quite nice on GSC’s part.

    Also, you likely already know enough about the game, and as a retired player I will just say that I do not promote that anyone plays it seriously.

    I play Pangya, well, it’s Albatross18 for the US version. I don’t play often but sometimes it’s fun. That’s a cool figure, I want the Kooh figures but I’m not sure about the quality.

    Wow, quite an amazing deal you got there on an excellent figure. I’m jealous. xD By the way, what booth was it that you went to? I was at AX but since it was my first year going I had no idea what was where. x.x

    Anyway, very nice pictures, and I love your blog layout. :p Would you like to exchange blogroll links?

    Oh see i didn’t know she was from official art work, now i want to go find that art to put on this post for comparison

    Those looks cute but i’ve never heard of that figure maker so i couldn’t’ say anything about the quality really

    i have no idea which booth it was called but if we were tehre i could point it out in an instant! and i added you already so you can go ahead and add me to you blogroll as well.

  8. Panther says:

    Too moe for me haha, I do not like the way her face looks. I prefer my Solid Theater (non-) Transparent version. Seems to be a nice catch for you though.

  9. wickedclown says:

    Dancing Queen: Ah, I see. xD Well, if you go next year maybe we could meet up or something, always love to meet another otaku. :p And I’m adding you now, I should have added you already now that I think about it. Sorry. >.<

    ARIN @_@ i had to double check that in the wikipedia because arin is also a character in the mmorpg tricksteronline. and she’s like the exact same character(only without the golf club naturally) Looks like Ntreev both made those games so that explains it XD

    nice figure! darn looking at all your figures makes me wanna buy them too T_T

  11. lu-k says:

    Polka dots rule the world ^^; Add a lot of cuteness :3
    Great purchase! for such a price, it is a godsend since gorgeous Arin is no more easy to find.

  12. Meimi132 says:

    $20?!? OMG she was only £10!!! That is soooooooo unfair!! Your mucho lucky!
    Oh she is lovelier than I remember…. and wooo Polkadot panties! It does make a change lol. I like stripey ones on figures. Mucho cute.

  13. hiro says:

    what a find for 20 bucks! very nice. (I never save boxes; can’t justify the space in my tiny apartment.)

  14. Blowfish says:

    You somehow have a nose for qood deals! Aye?
    She isnt my type of figure but that was a real sweet deal

  15. Kozta-Boom says:

    I used to play pangya before. It’s totally fun and my currently character is Arin. She’s nice. b^^

    For $20 i would buy it to wipe my ass with!

    You know thats just a saying and all right? Not that i really would do that with her. Seriously.

  17. Saku says:

    This one is such a lovely figure and for $20, I don’t see why anyone would not get it ^^. I never play the game but she is totally worth buying ^^.

    Hope you don’t mind if I add you to my blogroll list ^^
