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]

The one Yoko I might not get…

I knew this day would come, the that someone would release a figure of Yoko that stunned me so much that I wouldn’t order her. I had made myself a vow to own every possible Yoko figure made, and it seems that this Yoko may make me break that vow.

Based off this image it was a good idea. It’s a cute version of Yoko, very cute and innocent. Yet seems like they weren’t able to stay true to the original image.

Looks like instead they went with a “deer in the headlights” look. They could have done an amazing job with her and it seems more like a rush job to me, Now i say “might not get” since maybe, just maybe the final version will be much much better. Lets hope so i can keep getting all the Yoko figures!

    I’m sick of Yoko, she’s not the only girl in TTGL damnit !

    I really hope that MF, GSC or Alter will make Nia/Dark Nia

    It’s a pity that they messed up her face like that.. It’s exactly the opposite from the Wave Swimwear version – the face was nice, but I didn’t really like the body/her pose. And now the body seems perfect but the face is just.. wrong. Gah. I do also hope that the final version will be prettier.

    Nice Figure but I dont like the hard tanlines.
    hear eyes (in her face ;D )look very lively.

    Why are there so few Nia Figures.
    I’d like to have an anti Spiral Version of her ; )

  4. super rats says:

    It looked like it might have been good in the unpainted version. The paint job ruins it. Though now that we’ve got many different angles, the sculpt is also pretty lifeless, needs a little more bend.

    I love this figure but I don’t know about the “tan-line” look about it…
    I was just telling my husband I wanted this figure…

    Hopefully the final version will be better, for me it would have been cooler if she had those glasses on her head like she had in the pic.

  7. gordon says:

    u are right. she’s not worth it. face looks kinda off. she might lean as well.

  8. Lovelyduckie says:

    I think the body looks great. But I agree her facial expression looks plain awful, I hate it. I actually didn’t want to own any bathing suit Yoko figures. But had they chosen a better face on this one I probably would have gone for it.

    I really don’t like this figure… I think that it’s pretty close to the picture, but that’s kind of what the problem is for me. Aside from the face, the tan lines just aren’t doing it for me, they just look weird..

  10. Dancing Queen says:

    i agree with you there on needing more figures of other Gurren Lagann Characters, an anti spiral Nia would be so awesome!

    see i like the wave version, but this one could have been so awesome

    the tan lines are form the original image, but they could have done it not as blunt

    @super rats:
    you hit the nail on the head

    @Riiana Doon:
    see i hate her face

    yeah, that would have been a nice touch as well

    and with it being a new company they might not know how to combat leaning issues

    yeah, the face ruins it for sure

    they are too pronounced and her face if off. but other than that it could have been amazing

  11. Pickles says:

    I too am really sick of Yoko figures. Nia needs some love already. πŸ™

  12. Otaku Dan says:

    that is the only yoko figure that looks ugly, the better alternative to that figure is the one that Wave is releasing. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10077785

    I agree, i’m not fond of her face at all. she looks more vacant than anything.

  14. J says:

    Really? I think it’s pretty cute, though I guess the face is a little weird. Totally agree about Nia though!

  15. Rin says:

    Well, this is a prototype I think…
    If it is…then they might improve on the figure when they release it…

    Do you ever buy male figures? All I see are girls. I buy both, you know male and female cause I’m not a sexist. DO you feel that you have something to prove? Well you don’t. Everyone can tell that there’s a man loving woman underneath that wants to get out. I have an Awesome Vash The Stampede figure, a Leloush, Saku from Beck, and an awesome Ichigo from Bleach. I’m sure you’d love them since they have such an awesome voice actor for all of the characters. Jonny Yong Bosch is surely one of the best voice actors that have ever lived. Have you heard about his band Eyeshine I recommend that you give them a listen.

    P.S. What kinda of dancer are you? πŸ˜‰

  17. the_poop says:

    I do not like girls with tan lines… personal preference will stop me from buying this (plus her face = ew)

  18. MrJack says:

    Well the Figure looks a little dull to me.

    I’am also missing the slight sunburn on her face,breasts,elbows and ass thats you can see on the picture.
    That would bring a bit more life in the Figure in my point of view.

  19. lovelyduckie says:

    @ Pickles – I REAAAAAALLLY want some Nia figures too! I have the one from Konomi but honestly it isn’t entirely satisfying my Nia needs. I hope Alter soon takes Nia under their wing like they did Yoko.

    Yoko is like Konata- even if a figure company PURPOSELY tried to make her look bad, she wouldn’t look bad.

    This figure company is on the very EDGE of making Yoko look horrible. They better not! I didn’t think Yoko could look bad in anything! This company proved me wrong πŸ™

    The body is not bad… not bad at all, but the face is completely off.

  21. Blowfish says:

    Im with superrats on this one.The sculpt looks good but a bad choice on paint/decals ruins the figure

    Ooooo new theme! Nice and SHINY!

  22. Dancing Queen says:

    yes Nia figures are badly needed

    @Otaku Dan:
    which i’m already getting, both versions as well!

    yep vacant face isn’t good

    woot another for the Nia boat!

    see but they should make the prototype amazing so people will pre-order, not ugly and hope people pre-order

    first; yes i love male figures, they need much mroe love! I’ve got a few; Suzaku, Lelouch, Kyon, Van, Kaneda, Shinji, Kaoru, Ryuk, Kyo and Spike. and second, EWWW Johnny Young Bosh sucks!!!

    see i don’t mind, as long as the design overall is nice

    and if they fixed her horrid face

    Oh i wanted tht Nia figure but last minute canceled cause of lack of money, i regretted it so much later

    See but even Konata got tht Clayz figure, the figure is good but the paint is off terribly

    thanks on the theme!
