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]

Alter Ayanami Rei

Alter makes one fine figure and this Ayanami Rei is no exception. Sadly she’s not mine but belongs to my boyfriend, was able to snag her last Wednesday when we went to go to the office for AX Live (he’s part of the backstage crew.) He’s a huge Rei fan and has a few figures of her but this one by far is my favorite.

Such a sweet shy face.

The boyfriend’s favorite part of this figure is her nice behind, he’s all for the plugsuits and loves this figure and how it shows off her curves.

I love her brilliant red eyes.

You can’t do this normally but when you turn her upside down it looks like she’s hiding from you.

“Leave me alone, I’m mad at you.”

This Rei isn’t new at all, she came out back in 2008 but isn’t too impossible to find. Sadly i don’t like her base, it’s a big black bulky flat thing that takes up so much space. When i get those horrible flat bases i leave them in the box since with so many figures it just takes up so much space. The boyfriend however has a stand for his video games he keeps her on so he doesn’t mind the base.

-Figure Info-
Manufactured by Alter
1/8 Scale
Initial release in October ’08

She’s a little harder to find as mentioned but check any one of these fine retailers to see if they have her in stock!

    Heh… so now I understand the love for Rei — purely physical. 😉

    I love that “Leave me alone, I’m mad at you” shot. And the one right above it where she’s hiding is how I look when people try to wake me up in the morning. xD

    Even tho I really like Rei I’m usually not too much of a fan of her figures. However there are exceptions and this is one of them. ^^ I like how cute she is and gotta say that the background for the photoshoot was really nice. :3

  3. FMPhoenixHawk says:

    Must have! I wonder if it’s still on my wishlist at JList? Maybe I can snag it…

    ….and this is what happens if you do use the base, but don’t dust it for a while!

    I’m more of an Asuka-fanboy and not too fond of laying figures because they are hard to display and take up too much space on the shelves.

    But I have to admit, this is a great looking Rei.

      I would love more Asuka figures but there doesn’t seem to be many good ones around, which is a bummer

    I like a lot of things about her. But in the end I didn’t pre-order her back in 2008 because I would have had such a hard time placing her in a spot that does her justice for casual viewing because of her laying down pose. I have the Alter Asuka though 🙂 I think she’s lovely.

    Looks like a nice figure; and I like it how you putted her ugly flat-base away while you took photos of her and changed it to that kind of nice fuzzy piece of material!

    The boyfriend is a wise man
