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]

I want Free Figures too!

Yes i do want to be fed by figure companies πŸ™

I have no reason to be receiving free figures really. But that doesn’t mean that i don’t think it would be awesome to get some!

I’m always reading posts like this about how Danny Choo keeps getting Free Figures. It really reminds me of how Hollywood works. The Stars get so much free stuff it’s crazy, since if say Angelina Jolie uses a product you’ll have a mass of people who want to be like her and run out and buy said product. It’s really the same thing, there are plenty of people who depend on Danny’s reviews to decide on whether or not they’ll buy the figure or not. I will fully admit there have a been a few times I’ve seen a figure or two on Danny Choo and realized that it was awesome and that i must get my hands on it as well. Part of me wishes that i could get free figures as well. (wink ^_~ wink kid nemo) But really my hits don’t even stack up to Danny Choo’s site, or other figure sites really. My pictures aren’t as great as I’d like them to be πŸ™ . You can see the difference in quality here, this is my Shana photo shoot and here is Mukyaa.com’s shoot. His is so much better! I will admit that I’m still learning and have lots to learn. I need a better camera, better lighting and I’m going to be taking photography classes this fall so hopefully there will be some improvement. Plus seeing this makes me really wish i spoke Japaneses. Maybe i should call my boss and offer that they only pay me in figures… I’d work 10X harder thats for sure! Really this is me bitching about not being good enough to get free figures, but this doesn’t mean that I’m going to keep bitching about it. This only means i need to work much harder on my own photos and work on my content! Then maybe I’ll be cool enough for free figures too!

    All that and if you study enough at school you could open up your own store. Then instead of having to rely on picking out fakes and knockoffs, you would already be getting the real ones, and the good ones that you choose (of course you have to get ones that you might not like for the sole fact that they would be money makers) but you never know what can happen. Just think you could even make annual visits to the makers at some point to discuss what could be popular to make, or what they are working on etc etc.

    Danny did say he was going to use some of those SAFs as prizes. Winning one is close to free.^^;

    yeah i would like to do that, owning my own store would be so awesome. I wouldn’t even need a house, i’d just sleep in the store surrounded by figures…

    @super rats:
    yep i heard that too, i’m totally going to go all out to try and win a figure ^_^

  4. Jenag says:

    Or when you get a house, just make it shaped like a giant figure? I mean you can do anything with it, mario pipes and sonic rings, trap doors and secret rooms. All the fun stuff. Might have to get a room filled with playpen balls and one with a trampoline floor and velcro ceiling though >:D.

    Yeah Danny sure has it good huh!? Look at all the SAFS he got!!! O.O and including limited editions!! he got the DARK ELF on his other batch >.<

    HAha I love the picture you posted about you and the figure companies. I think a lot of people can relate to that ^.^

  6. I feel ya, I am totally jealous too :'( I hope Danny opens up the competitions for the figures soon though, ’cause I wanna give it a shot. But wouldn’t it be nice to not have to compete? I guess I should be happy enough that KN gives me free shipping, but I always want more lol.

    Sigh, free figures as payment lol.

    Still for payment-wise, most of the time cash is preferred. Then you could have the ability to choose what you really want to buy, or more options to spend your cash with.

    Alternatively, unwanted figures you receive as payment could be sold off I guess.

  8. Blowfish says:

    I think that every Otakublogger out there wishes to be Danny and to recieve free figures and all sort of goodies.What people seem to forget is that Danny is already a methusalem when you consider a normal blogs lifetime.He worked so many years on it that its only fair to get some freebies.
    What i really respect is that Danny shares so much of HIS earnings with the community. You wont find that too often.

    Heres my FreeFigurePlan for you:

    Pester KidNemo or Local Anime/Comicshops for Figures for REVIEW!!!
    Just ask them if they could lend you a copy for review and make something like a Banner exchange with them.Youll get better shots of the figures with the time and maybe theyll realize that you boosted their figure sales with it.Chances that theyll give you figures for free are small but you never know.

    Youre already on pretty good terms with KidNemo Aye? Give it a try

    Plan B:
    Youre a girl.Use your breastbonus ^_^

  9. @ Blowfish – Danny is really inspirational isn’t he πŸ™‚ But I think even if we blog for a bazillion years we can’t get to his level, he really is on another plain! Very inspirational but for me (dunno about Dancing Queen) I don’t think it’s really possible xD.

    You’re a lot closer to having a chance than some people, I hope you figure out a way to make it work! Just like Danny’s inspirational posts say, if you put your mind to something and work hard at it you can achieve your dreams.

    ok i added you to my blogroll^_^ I so wanted that Dark Elf as well. Not for me though, my brother is a HUGE Lineage II fan and his character is an elf and it would be so awesome for him to own that…

    @Pure Trance (Figured):
    yeah they give me free shipping as well, which really does help, and why I’m so great full for that a part of me wants more…

    see when you’re someone like me who the majority of my money goes to figures anyways it’s just cutting out the middle mad to be paid in figures

    I think i have a better shot at plan B than plan a. And yes Danny choo is really so up there compared to us small fry, but he did start out as small as well all did so it’s not like we can’t get that big either. Only difference is that Danny’s site is a big part of his business and his life, when for the most of us Blogging if more of a hobby. But i do wish i could blog for a living

    @Pure Trance (Figured):
    he really is inspirational! but don’t put yourself down, it’s all about trying your best and following your dreams

    well thanks, i really would love to be at his level but getting there is going to take a lot of time and dedication, and lucky for me i’m willing to put my time and effort into my blog!

  12. @ Dancing Queen – Think of the free shipping like I do; if you get like 6 figures where the shipping would be free, that equals like one free figure xD; But then again, I dunno if you are a nutcase like I am and order/preorder as many lol.

    As for Danny being inspirational, it’s really difficult in this economy to have time or money for anything other than work (at least for me)…luckily I have different dreams, but it would be nice to get free stuff (who doesn’t think that? lol) and to live without having to worry so much about money ^^;;; Although if I got all my figures for free, I’d have a lot more of a cushion money-wise…although I preorder a lot of figures, I don’t have that much money ^^;;;

    Also, living in Japan is not going to happen for me. My husband definitely wouldn’t want to and to be honest I think after a few years I don’t know how I’d feel…also we have a dog…it’s just too hard ^^; I would be happy visiting like once or twice a year though…however, that pesky money rears it’s ugly head again LOL.

    Ah! I saw that article about Translators wanted, but I got there too late and it had closed. The sad thing was that I have all the skills to do the work and even have translating experience. :(.

    I sent in an application anyways, but I’m feeling down because I didn’t check his site the previous day. I hope he does see the email and has a look through it anyways.

    Danny Choo.com wasn’t built in a day πŸ˜‰ Your blog isn’t really that old. Looking through all your entries, you have already come along ways though. Keep at it.

    If your interested in ideas for improving your blog. Problogger is a must read for any blogger not necessarily for the money making thing, but for the general blogging tips.

    By the way, maybe you should take a look back at what you have posted.

    I don’t think there is a person on this planet that doesn’t like free stuff.
    I myself find myself working and studying Japanese alot more now that I have something to work toward, i’d love to be in Danny’s shoes right now with all those figures, I think he worked many years to get where he is now, and he got lucky to be where he is.
    My goal someday, move to Japan, and become a voice actor, or anime creator.:D Ever since Danny opened up that job opportunity as a translator, it has given me something to work towards. I’ve become addicted to collecting figures/figma, and when I see new figures, I realize certain anime that I haven’t watched and want to check out, so everything does have a positive, whether we like to realize it or not, as long as we work toward our goals anything can be possible, I do like that picture though, I can totally relate right now.:D

    @Pure Trance (Figured):
    while i love Japanese culture and such i don’t think i could live there, i’m too much of a California girl and i love my home way to much to even think of leaving it

    hope that works out for you

    yeah some of my older posts are kinda lame but i think i’ve honestly come quite far in so little time

    now if he were looking for a Spanish translator i’d be the girl, but then he already has hector for that :'(

    @Riiana Doon:
    well his blog has been around for quite a while and just now he’s getting all these free figures. but i also understand why they give him free figures, how often do i see a review of a figure from him before it’s released and decide i really want it

    well all wish for free figures deep down inside

    no clue, sorry
