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]

Loaned Figures; Mobip Mio!

Loaned figures? Confused? It’s a simple explanation! I’m broke! I know I keep complaining about it! I’m sorry! But my last job had the WORST hours known to man! I do have a new job lined up but I need to catch up on credit cards too! I am however lucky that I’ve got great friends who are willing to lend me figures for review!

Loaned to me by my good friend Cristina Vee! You may have heard of her from her Youtube ValliereVee where she sings Anime songs in English! She’s also a voice actress! She’s done a few roles you may have heard of… Louise from Zero no Tsukaima, Nanoha from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha to name a few!

She’s also the new Haruhi for the ASOS Brigade! You can see their new video and see Cristina sing Super Driver!

I’m in the Audience too! I’m the Snow White!

Back to Mio! Mobip to my understanding is Aoshima’s version of the Figma. While I am a fan of Figmas i have to say the quality of these Mobip figures have caught me off guard with the awesome Quality.

I do wish the Guitar had strings. It seems that so many other figures companies add the strings and once you find a new figures that doesn’t have the strings it’s almost a let down.

Not a huge fan of her different faces, I do love this one with the tears streaking down her face, but the difference between the other two faces are just a teeny little smile.

Yep, she does come with our favorite Striped Pantsu!

This is the alternate sad face, and it’s just too similar to the other face. her bag is however cute!

She has about the same posability as a general figma, but the accessories that it comes with seem to be lacking just a little. Especially with the figma coming with a guitar case!

Paint job isn’t that bad, but then for an action figure you never expect top quality.

Her base is very similar to the Figma base, and she only has a hole in her head to keep her up. Unlike that of some newer figmas that figured out how to get it through the back too!

While the only time I’d ever buy even a figma would be if I loved the character or if I were just completing the set. Even with the fact that Yui is my favorite I doubt I would have run out to buy the Mobip version. I would have waited for the Figma version instead. But then that doesn’t mean this figure is at all lacking, she’s really well made and if you’re a HUGE K-On fan then getting your hands on this Mobip figure and the Figma version would be the same as me getting both Revoltechs of Yoko! Which I DO have both version!

    I always wondered about the quality of the Mobip figures, since they were the ones to release the K-On girls first, I was too scared to order one myself ^^; I think I’ll pass on them considering on how broke I’ll be after the figmas are released for these ladies.

    (I love the purple you used for her bg X3; )

      I would have been too scared to order one myself as well, which is why i’m loving this Loaned Figure series since i can review figures i doubt i ever would have gotten myself

  2. bluedrakon says:

    Though not on my list to purchase, they did a great job with the alternate faces she has.

    Besides . . . pantsu – pantsu (_ _)

  3. Cristina says:

    These look amazing! And I would have never noticed the stripped panties if it weren’t for you~ 😀

    • Dancing Queen says:

      It was the first thing i noticed once i took her out the box, but then when you’ve collected figures as long as i have you tend to look at the minor details

  4. Rin says:

    Not a big fan of Mobip figures. I like Figma’s a lot more and the quality is better.
    Still, it’s a good attempt in making a Mio figure.
    Must be nice to have a voice actor as friend especially the one who does the dubbed voice for Nanoha and that video of her singing Super Driver was awesome!!!
    She has a great voice…make me wonder, why doesn’t she do the voice of Haruhi…

    • Dancing Queen says:

      I had no idea she was a VA when i met her, she’s also the drummer in my boyfriend’s band so i figured she was just a good drummer. I only realized how big she was once she told me that she did the English voice of Noel Vermilion and Nu (v-13) from “BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger”

      • Rin says:

        WOW!!! Noel from BlazBlue!!! That must have been shock that your friend was a VA!!! Man, I wish I had friend that was a VA…your lucky!!!

    “but I need to catch up on credit cards too”

    I hear you on that, I’m aiming to have my credit card hit $0 for the first time in 2 years. I’m SO CLOSE, just a few pay checks away. But tempting limited items keep dancing in front of me!

    Lol, she has a funny face ~_~

  7. lostty says:

    I’m really not liking the quality…

  8. Ocean says:

    God, Christina Vee is the coolest. I have the biggest girlcrush on her. *_*

  9. Insanekitten says:

    Yeaaah, I’d rather wait for the Figmas. I almost caved and got these ones, but then I found out there were gonna be Figma versions. So worth waiting for!

    Shima pantsu ~! <3

  10. Flip says:

    yeah the figure looks a bit odd, but great pics as always.

  11. Draku says:
