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’s Bounty Hunter Yoko

Alter’s Bounty Hunter Yoko, the Pièce de Résistance of my Yoko figure collection. I’ve wanted this figure in my collection since I knew Alter was making her back in ’08! Even when she was released for pre-order, I jumped and got my order in so fast! Yet personal debt plagued me at the time and I had to cut back on figure orders, and sadly, I had to drop my order and regretted it ever since!

This particular Yoko has been sold out since it came out, and has been practically impossible to find unless you wanted to pay upwards of $300+ on eBay. Heck, I’ve seen her on eBay for well over $1,000!

I was lucky to find her on Yahoo Auctions Japan for just under 15,000¥. An awesome deal when you consider just how rare she is. I was also able to get her for that much since her box was damaged, which I didn’t care about as long as she herself was not damaged. While I didn’t show any pictures of her box, it’s not really that damaged IMO. The box has maybe just a little wear and tear, but not horribly damaged.

Now, I’m currently at 24 Yoko’s in my collection. Still not enough though. I’m currently missing a few, like Wave’s Yomako Sensei figures and Real Image Yoko, but I’ll actually be getting her soon!

So back to this figure: She’s prefect! Yes I’m biased, but this is one of the best Yoko figures out!

Delicious underboob!

Since I got Yoko earlier this morning, I have been staring at her all day, just sitting at my desk, looking at this figure from every possible angle. I can’t find a thing wrong with her. Alter has made something so perfect, so wonderful, it’s hard for me as well to try and find a flaw in this particular Yoko. She’s been the unicorn of my collection; the one figure I missed that was becoming more and more impossible to find as time went on. Finally owning her, I feel so invigorated with my figure collecting. Now I’m curious, what is the one figure that you’ve always wanted but weren’t able to get and would love to own one day? Be it a Nendoroid, Figma, Scaled PVC or even a DD! Let me know in the comments! I’d love to know!

While I highly doubt you’ll be able to find Yoko, maybe you can use one of these sites to find your one figure, that you’ve been wanting for years!

    the one figure i would really love to get my hands on is Nendoroid Nougami Neuro. He’s my idol when it comes to sadistic evilness. but i’m not willing to pay anywhere close to hundreds for him cuz i’m not really a figure collector per se. if you find one on sale under $80-90, i emplore you to PM me at http://myfigurecollection.net/profile/AnnieAzura k thanks

    Congrats. If I could only get one Yoko, this would be it.

  3. Aguzz says:

    ;v; congrats on getting her!! She’s on my wishlist but I doubt I’ll ever get her, so I kinda envy you there xD;
    And my dreamed figure? That would be Asakura Ryoko 1/4 by FREEing.
    She’s so expensive nowadays… And she was already expensive to start with!
    I am getting her sooner or later ;v;

  4. Zuora says:

    That Yoko’s pretty awesome!

    Hm….One figure I’ve wanted for a while? Pullip Luka Megurine. All that pink hair!X3

    Frances. Congratulations on finally owning BHY. I know you have been dreaming of having her for a while now. You were planning of stealing that Yoko figure from one of the boots at this year’s AX, weren’t you? 🙂

    Anyway, yeah, BHY is definitively also my favorite Yoko figure to the point that I had to made a drawing of her: http://scr3wjob.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2xl1kx

    As for your question, the figure that I most want right now is Yoko GIFT. Yoko figures are now extremely harder and more expensive to find compare to last year, and it does not help that I have not enough money to throw away. 🙁 But I’ll continue with my Yoko figure hunt too with pride. 🙂

    Take care.

    Still looking for a Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~. I hope I can find one some day. It is the one figure that I am missing that I really can’t live without.

  7. bluedrakon says:

    Very nice figure an I love the shots. Along with 1/8 Real Version, this is another one I have on my wish list

  8. Congratz on getting the figurine. That’s great news!

    I’ve been after the Real Image Yoko ever since she was released but didn’t have a job at the time so I missed out on her. Absolutely gutted as she is so hard to get ahold of now. Not as hard as the Alter Yoko you have there but still she’s quite elusive.

    I can’t believe you’ll be getting her soon! D:
    Where did you get her from and how much?

  9. Dinara says:

    Congratulations on getting her!! It is sad you were unable to get her when she came out! I would have expected you of all people to have her! Haha but I see you are estatic to have her now.

    The one figurine I have always wanted is the Maru and Moro from XXXHolic pvc scaled figurine. They are so cute and the figure is extremely well done!! I really loved the series so to have a figure from it would be great as well!

  10. Esther says:

    Oh, gosh, she’s beautiful~! 🙂 Definitely one that I’d like to get someday, too.

    My dream figure is the Good Smile Hitagi Senjougahara. Being an artist myself, it was just constantly calling out to me. it’s such a great piece.

    However, I was finally able to snag her off a seller down at MyFigureCollection. I’m paying her off slowly and I’ll be getting her in September. I’m so excited, but also kind of nervous… and she doesn’t come with the pegs to hold up stationary, so I’m trying to work out a way to get someone’s extra pegs or build some of my own.

  11. lobodemon says:

    She is amazing..

    Can’t. Stop. Staring. ^_^

  12. ObsidianGT says:

    Totally agree with you on this; this is just a perfect figure. One of my favorites. I was sad you missed the eBay auction (I tweeted you about my extra Yoko). Glad you ended up snagging her.

  13. blup says:

    It was so close that I nearly got my hands on gift’s Yoko, but I still don’t have her! I want her so badly!

  14. Hotaruzuki says:

    She looks amazing!!!!

  15. Drakul says:

    See I think the best Yoko statue but it’s not the representation I’m looking for :/

    Some of them have great sculpt, some have great pose, some have great expression but I haven’t the one that combines it all for me.
