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]

Twice the Max Factory 1/8 Miki Hoshii, Twice the fun!

I’m not always the kinda of person to buy figures from something I know nothing of. But when I saw the promotional shots for these two I knew I had to have them. Still my rule is in effect at the time of only buying figures of series I knew and of characters I liked. I then ran and got as much info on Miki Hoshii so I could at least have a reason to get them both. These are two figures I’ve been waiting for a really long time now.

First we have Miki Hoshii Awakening version, she’s the blue version after she cut her hair.


You knew it was coming, I don’t understand the drill and crown, but it’s cute.

Second we have Miki Hoshii New Star of Hope Version, very cute.

On Miki Hoshii New Star of Hope Version you can give her pink cat ears and pink paws. Once again random but really cute.

Now I know I didn’t really write much during this entire post, it’s cause there is so much to explain and I felt that if I did it within the pictures since there are so many it might just get skipped over. Now if someone asked me which of these two are my favorite it’d be quite hard. I still can’t choose which one I like the best, which is exactly why I got them both. The detail on them both is just astounding. I was at first worried about how they’d pull of the glittery outfit, but they pulled it off amazingly well. The detail, the pose, the paint and how they pulled off the dynamic look was just so great. I just don’t understand the add ons, the crown, drill, cat ears and paws, seams so random but oh well, still very cute either way! Max Factory never fails to amaze me in the quality of their figures; they always just go above and beyond with their figures. I just wish they would focus more on figures instead of figmas, I still love figmas but I love Max Factory’s PVC releases so much more. These two lady’s are being highly recommended by me, they are just so astounding. But they are getting to be a bit hard to find, but if you do spot them I’d snag them immediately!

    The Crown/Drill and Cat Ears/Paws are acessories that you can use to dress up each of the Idols in the game. Before each stage you pick a base outfit, and then other acessories to go with it (can be random, can relate, I THINK they raise stats that make your idol do better in Visual, Dance, or Vocal categories). The drills are pretty funny in videos. xD

    I liked these figures a lot too but I didn’t want to try and squeeze them into my budget over other figures. I’d much rather have these then those petit nendoroids coming out. They really look nice when you have both side by side in the same pose.

    I think those are the only figures i’ve ever seen with glittery clothes, looks like max factory did an awesome job on both. the background you used in the photos suits them perfectly as well.

  5. ron~ says:

    hoo you bought both, i only got the yellow haired one, want both, but a lil bit tight on money =\

    I like the brown hair, but had to choose the yellow hair version because of nya paw 😀

    thanks on the background, i originally bought the tinsel that i used for this background and the one for the Baek Changpo Review for another figures, but with having multiple colors it seemed like i could kinda re-use them for different figures with different color schemes

    ok that explains it so much better to me now!

    see the moment they were announced i new i had to have them

    i don’t think i know of any other figure that has done the glittery clothes this way but max factory did an amazing job on it

    see it was far too hard to choose which of the two i wanted, so i got both!

    it’s the drill that will pierce the heavens

    I myself am not too fond of the figures themselves, but I do admit that the quality of them both looks fantastic! I just wanted to mention that these are some great images you took and the background is outstanding! It works so well in creating the mood!
