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’m so glad there are delays

Some figure delays, normally they suck big time since it just means you’ll have to wait longer for amazing figures to come out. But for me, they are great news since I’m still a bit broke from being jobless for so long. I only recently got a new job but even still hours will suck until Black Friday.

Black Friday being the day after Thanksgiving where almost every store in the US has a giant sale and if you work retail that means you are doomed to work that day. Also with my working at The Disney Store we’ll be swamped with parents buying presents for their kids all up until Christmas!

Poor Black Rock Shooter got pushed back to December due to production issues, and Mio got pushed to January. Greats news for me since hopefully by then I’ll be able to afford all these awesome figures I’ve got ordered.

You should be able to pre-order these lovely girls at any of these fine retailers!

    Well you got a point there ^^; …..
    Tough i really dont know whats the point of delaying so much specially with alter….

  2. Rin says:

    Not again…
    I now wonder if Black Rock Shooter will ever see the light of day…
    I lost count how many times it’s been delayed…

      It sucks, but then for me if she stayed to her original release date i would never have been able to save up for her

  3. Rachel says:

    It is a good thing in this case. BRS is a very long-term purchase, in that I’m not even considering buying her now. Is it the same for you? Oh, and you have good taste in figures – those two are gorgeous.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      well, not getting her now is a bad idea! She’ll be so hard to find once this production run is done. You’ll have to pray for a re-release, and knowing GSC they won’t be doing ones at all

  4. uzu says:

    GAH! I was very upset to see Mio on delay…! I was really looking forward to her!

    …WAIT. JANUARY? Not even December?!! ARGH.

    Its seriously unacceptable what they are doing to BRS. Three figure delays? For production issues? They should have mastered it by now…. and because of black rock shooter’s delay, everything else in line is getting delayed too. Annoying.

    I ordered Saber Lily from OtakuFuel… I heard about the site from you first! Otakufuel has nice prices, but they are sooo late. She’s only comming in the mail this friday for me. But they are a great service, so thanks for posting about them!

    • Dancing Queen says:

      I guess they’re late since they have to wait for them to be shipped to the US but yes, they are a good site to purchase from!

  5. Figure Maniac Edwin says:

    Delays are a blessing in disguise. I know the pain when Saber Lily was delayed from June all the way to end of September. But more time to save. Free up your cash flow. The important thing is you’re guaranteed to get your figure. And when you finally get them, you’ll forget about the delays.

    For the BRS figure, I’d prefer they get the crafsmanship right instead of rushed to retail. Good Smile is watching out for our satisfaction.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      can’t agree with you more, sadly updated news is i had to cancel my orders anyways due to lack of funds 🙁

  6. Electricv01 says:

    I want that Black Rock Shooter fig so bad! It’s so super cool! I hope I’m able to get it because I’m super broke at the moment too. I hope I hope I hope I hope…

  7. Blowfish says:

    I am usually pretty happy about delays aswell since it helps to keep your money together.Alot of Items seem to have been moved to December/January now and thats a bit expensive ^^;;

  8. Primula says:

    I am interested to see the non advertised photos of the Mio figure and to see a full review on her. The face from the picture posted almost seems off. The thing I am interested to find out is how well the figure stays on the stand. Nearly all of my Nanoha series figures have a single foot two peg stand and the weight distribution tends to cause warping to the plastic pegs. >< my poor Vita figure barely stays on her stand now.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      i need to track Mio down now too that i had to cancel my order, she looks cute on some of the reviews i checked out

  9. Vixums says:

    The delays don’t effect me, thankfully, but I know most of the figure collecting community let out a huge groan to hear about yet another delay for Black Rock Shooter XD

  10. Lylibellule says:

    I’m glad for you that the delay for those two figures suits you.
    Without a job it’s difficult.
    I hope everything will go better for you by now.

    Good luck for Black Friday.

    You work at The Disney Store? I did that one summer, not the best. I used to love Disney until I worked for them. Bunch of racists…

    Anyway, that BRS is epic, still need to watch K-ON! The delays are a blessing for you, b/c I know you want this one in the mean time:


    Part of HobbyFan’s Black Friday sale (I know you lurves the sales, lol). Save those Disney Dollars!

    figures arent usually my thing… (i have none)… but somehow i really want the BRS q.q

  13. lovelyduckie says:

    Delays don’t bother me so much, if anything they usually benefit me.

  14. Katsura-chan says:

    I don’t buy many figures but delay is a pain for me… It bother me to change my paying plans lol
    Fortunately i’m patient. I’ve spotted BRS few days ago but pre-ordered another one of the same character.

  15. ddh4mster says:

    Hey DQ… they’ve released the Black Sword ver. of BRS
    have you seen it? its… vexing ~.~
