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]

Good Smile Company Rin Tohsaka -UNLIMITED BLADE WORKS-

Good Smile Company’s Rin Tohsaka: This figure is divine, simply divine! The moment I saw her out for pre-order, I knew there was no way I could live without her! My only issue is how shiny the shirt it, and while it does look lovely from a clothing standpoint, her shirt isn’t made of a shiny material but should be more matte like her skirt.

The details on Rin are exquisite, and pretty much flawless. Lately these figure companies are giving me nothing to complain about!

Even with such a frowny face, Rin is still so lovely!

Nice detail on the chain Loving the pinky finger just barely poking out! When in doubt, pinky out!

Looks like Rin doesn’t rock the Shimapan!

I know it’s silly, but her boobs, while great in this figure, but it would never dip in the middle like that if her they were really that big. Maybe if the shirt were a little looser and her boobs were smaller… But then that’s the original design of the art and not GSC’s fault.

I love the base. It’s so nicely detailed and the swords make it looks so epic!

Here is the reference art. I’ve mentioned this again and again on how much I adore a figure that has reference art! When you can compare the figure to the art it’s supposed to be based off and see just how wonderful this 3D replication is, it’s such a treat!

I will say, my all time favorite part about this figure is her hair! I adore how they got the “blowing in the wind” look and how it looks so natural and so action-like! It doesn’t look forced, but natural as if she were  in a perpetual wind tunnel.

Interchangeable hands, give her a dagger!

This is by far my favorite all-time Rin Tohsaka figure (there aren’t many) and I’ve owned a few in the past, but they were pretty much boring and I sold them all. Part of me regrets selling some of them since now they are a little rare and they were older figures, yet at the same time I’m glad I held off for a proper representation to get this particular Rin! She’s the cream of the crop and I wonder if any other future figure will ever top this particular Rin!

    I completely you agree with you about how the best part is the hair. The moment I saw the first image I was instantly drawn to it! I also can understand why you think the shirt is a little too shiny, but in the long run this looks like a really great figure!

    “Rin was just recently released and shouldn’t be too hard to find! ”

    Every store I visited from your list says “out of stock”

  3. Sachie says:

    Such a beautiful figure! And her hair- so flawless!!

  4. I remember you showed this at your panel and I couldn’t find a way to grab it and run without being caught. As you said, the detail they put in the hair was awesome and must be a good reason for the high price.

    Thinking about getting her, the only thing that is preventing me to do so is her…uhm…ass. Looks a bit too big in every pic I’ve seen, but maybe it’s just me. Could you please confirm this ?

  6. I love your shots! I’m so glad I got her as well!

  7. lovelyduckie says:

    I’d like a figure of Archer to go by her too 🙂 if he had been included in this figure I would have definietly paid even more for her!

  8. Drakul says:

    Love this Rin! It’s perfect, I hadn’t seen her before so I hope I can find her for ‘cheap’
