Final July haul and another Mirei? WTH is my photo doing on ebay

Today is the last day of July (for me at least), and just in time for me to post up my final July haul. Altogether I have bought 11 figures this month, this is a milestone for me as I have never bought this much figure in a single month since I started collecting about 6 months ago.

So what did I get this time, well there’s the last two Lamento figure Rai and Bardo, there’s Hikaru Death Cloth Ver. (I’ll have to thanks a fellow blogger aka_ugly for informing me of Hikaru availability at Hobby Search), and finally what’s that? What is Mirei doing in there, I have already posted Mirei haul didn’t I. Read on after the jump to find out why.

Well, I have mention on my earlier Mirei haul post that I ordered Mirei from Animewild which was shipped last month, and after waiting for more than a month it still haven’t arrive. Well today she finally arrive together with my other shipment from Play-Asia, it took her exactly 43 days to arrive and I still do not know why it took so long. Well I am just glad Animewild redeem themself, but probably ain’t their fault, it’s the postal fault I would guess.

So now I got two Mirei, I still haven’t decided to sell her or to keep her, oh well plenty of time to decide on that.

Beside posting my final haul there’s another thing that I want to mention, something that really piss me off. A forumer from a forum that I frequent pm me today that he saw my photos of Wendy Garret being use by an ebay seller here. It really piss me off when I saw that, can’t he goddamn read that I specifically mention on my about page that I do not allow my photos to be use for commercial purpose. And here he’s just taking my photos and put it on his ebay page and he didn’t even remove the watermark ‘Toys Workz’ from it.

Have any of you encounter this situation before ? What do you guys do about it ? I have message the ebay seller not to use my photos but I don’t think he’ll even bother about it. Guess I just have to live with it huh….

Mirei-san 海麗さん

Anyone who has been following my blog would know how much trouble I had to go through in getting her. There was a pre-order for her at Play-Asia before she was release but at the time I wasn’t that interested in getting her. After seeing the photos Danny posted at his blog, it got me really interested in getting this absolutely cute and sexy figure. So as usual I contacted my friend and only then did I found out that she’s actually a Kotobukiya online store exclusive and most shop that have her are selling at a premium price.

Fast forward about a month later, I searching through numerous sites for her I found that there’s a US release around end of June. I found her on pre-order at Anime Wild and without thinking too much about it I quickly pre-ordered her, which is something I’ll come to regret later. I should be happy that I manage to pre-order her right, but no, I waited and waited for her to arrive, a week past, 2 weeks…. and my numerous e-mail to them asking them about it did not get any reply. Later my local store have her in stock, and since I do not know what happen to my shipment from Anime Wild, I bought her from my local store instead, slightly more expensive though.

More than a week past and to my surprise she arrive after more than a month of waiting. So that’s how I ended up with two Mirei ^^. I posted in a local forum that I wanted to sell my second Mirei and I quickly got response and a few days after that, it’s time for me to say goodbye to my second Mirei as I ship her off.

Mirei is sculpted by Houjun Otoyama and she comes with an extra hand and hair piece, so you can pose her with her hair down or up, and with her hand on her leg or holding a pen. I would have prefer her to come with the glasses as in the illustration though.

She’s very well sculpted and painted, except for some painting chipping of on her right foot due to the removable shoe. That was more due to me putting on the shoe a bit too tight though.

Mirei and pastries ^^, good thing she can sit on the sofa, tried to sit her on the big pillow but that didn’t work though, so it become a sleeping pose instead :P

Mire in the office, this was the reason why it took me so long to do a Mirei photo-shoot. It took me quite sometime to build the wall and the table I am using for this shot, it wasn’t as easy to make as I first though haha. A lot more props were use in this shots but I think it came out pretty good ^^.

A final closeup shot of Mirei kawaii face. I did a lot of shots of her with her hair up as I prefer that look more ^^. She just look a lot more cuter and sexier with her hair up ^^.

Well after all the trouble I went through, I am really glad that I manage to get her, or two of her in the end, though the other one was sold off, I still own her for a few days. She’s the second figure based on Shunya Yamashita’s illustration that I have in my collection, the third was suppose to be Non-non but I have cancel my order on her, I’ll be getting Cocona instead which I like more.

DVDs, Magazines and Figure…oh and a mat

Not exactly my end of the month haul cause the Hellsing Ultimate DVD shipment will be coming in next week, but this is probably my biggest purchase for August. Let’s see what I have here, there’s Haruhi DVD Vol. 2 Limited Edition, Evangelion Platinum Complete box-set, Megami vol. 088, Replicant vol. 29, Kotobukiya Chise and a green mat.

Got Chise during another Hobby Search restock, she was actually restock quite sometime ago but I didn’t know until I went and look through all the listing under Kotobukiya. A proper photo shoot of her will come later ^^.

I was curious about the content of Megami magazine, so while browsing around at Kinokuniya I decided to grab one copy just to satisfied my curiosity. I am glad i got this copy of Megami though, cause inside I found a plastic sheet of swimsuit Fate and Nanoha, each taking a side of the plastic, not really sure what’s that thing suppose to be ^^. Now I finally see for myself the content of Megami, lots of poster, pictures of 2D girls hehe ^^.

Haruhi DVD 2 Limited Edition, comes in a simple box and with Mikuru on the cover of the box. Comes with a special variant cover, a double sided pencil board, a Haruhi armband, an iron-on, Bouken Desho Desho ? CD soundtrack and a bonus DVD containing the first 5 episode in TV broadcast order. The main reason I got this set instead of the normal one is because of the bonus DVD of the first 5 episode in TV broadcast order, not even the Japanese release of Haruhi DVD have that ^^. The next 2 Limited Edition Haruhi DVD with have the same bonus DVD of the episodes in TV broadcast order as well, so I’ll be getting them too.

Hellsing and Fate/Stay Night DVDs

Final post for August, suppose to be a post on Kanu haul but she’s delay due to National Day holiday here, so will only get her next week. My Alter Witchblade haven’t ship from Hobby Search as well, she’ll probably only shipped next week, so I’ll do a dvd haul post instead.

Got my Hellsing Ultimate Vol 1 & 2 and Fate/Stay Night Vol 1 earlier this week, wasn’t expecting Fate/Stay Night to arrive so soon since I use expedite shipping instead of priority shipping. So I guess next time I can save some money on shipping by using expedite shipping since it only took slightly over a week for my stuff to reach me ^^.

Fate/Stay Night Vol 1: Advent of the Magi Limited Collector’s Box

I got this from Amazon since Rightstuf was out of stock, got the rest of the series Vol 2 – 6 at Rightstuf but they ran out of Vol 5 so have to wait for them to restock before my order gets ship.This Limited Collector’s box is actually quite plain with only a box to store the whole series and a single disc Vol 1. Not much in terms of extras, so if you’re not a fan of the series, it’ll be better to wait for a box-set instead.

You get Saber on one side of the box and the rest of the character on the other side, nothing really spectacular, just simple and nice I guess. Accompanying the dvd in the shots are Kotobukiya Saber, Griffon Sakura and Alter Black Dress Saber.

As I mention earlier nothing much in terms of extras, just the dvd and an artbox to hold the series. The limited edition of Vol 6 comes with a Saber clock though, but due to the lack of picture of the clock I decided to just get the normal edition.

Hellsing Ultimate Vol 1 Standard Edition & Hellsing Ultimate Vol 2 Limited Edition

Next up is Hellsing Ultimate Vol 1 and Vol 2. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get the limited edition of Vol 1 which comes with a plague of Alucard. Also only the limited edition comes with 5.1 Japanese audio, the normal edition only comes with 2.0 Japanese audio, so if grab the limited edition if you can find it.

Since I don’t have any Hellsing figures or vampire figures, I’ll be using Nendroid Yuki as a replacement :) . On the right is Vol 1 and on the left is Vol 2 and Yuki reading Hellsing manga ^^.

Nothing much in Vol 1, just the dvd and some paper insert.

Now Vol 2 is a different story, the 2 dvd is store in a steel case and it comes together with a 200+ pages production art collection book of Hellsing Ultimate 1 and 2.

Unlike the previous release Hellsing TV series, Hellsing Ultimate is suppose to follow the manga more closely. At the moment it’s not known how many episode it will have, the latest that was release is episode 3 and episode 4 will follow in Oct 2007. Oh each volumes only have 1 episode with a 45 – 50 minutes runtime, but I’ll definitely collect all of them since I like the series ^^. Now if only some company will release a figure of Alucard, I know there’s a Seras Victoria figure, but I haven’t seen Alucard yet.

Witchblade, Power UP!!!

Yup it’s time for another Witchblade post ^^, the last one was like hmmm more than 3 months ago, it was on Kotobukiya 1/6 Witchblade installing version, which is basically the normal version Witchblade. This time it’s the powered up Witchblade release by Alter recently, suppose to be release in July but it was delay, well I finally got her in my hand last week and now my Witchblade collection is complete. Two company release the powered up Witchblade, the first was from Kotobukiya, their version of the powered up Witchblade is even taller and more impressive than their previous 1/6 Witchblade but I decide to go for the Alter version as I somehow Alter version better.


Click for larger image

So how does the Alter Witchblade compare to Kotobukiya’s, not too shabby I would say, it may not be as huge or as impressive as the Kotobukiya’s but it still can hold it’s own in the detail of the sculpt. Tanaka Touji choose a rather static pose for her, with her standing with one arm raise infront of her face and her long blade protuding from both her arms. A bit of dynamism is added to the hair where it swoop around from both side. She’s quite tall, standing at about 27cm from foot to the tip of her blade, the blade itself is already about 22cm from tip to tip, the second blade on her right arm is shorter though. A thing to note is her base, rather than the plain base that usually comes with Alter’s figures, she actually comes with a base sculpted to look like broken stones or rubbles, well the black plain base is still there but at least they added the stones/rubbles to it ^^

Click for larger image

She’s actually made of a combination of different type of plastic, certain parts of her are actually softer, while some parts are harder plastic. The blade is made of softer plastic and quite flexible but don’t try to bend it in half though ^^.

Her leg is really slim, though it looks nice, I just hope she won’t lean in the future due to that.

Final pic of all the Witchblade in my collection, in front is of course Alter 1/8 Amaha Masane powered up ver., to her right is Alter 1/8 Amaha Masane casual dress ver., and to her left is Kotobukiya 1/6 Witchblade installing ver.


Click for larger image

Overall I am quite satisfied with Alter’s rendition of Witchblade, the scuplt and quality are top notch. There are slight paint job problem but nothing to be alarm of as it’s barely visible. I actually prefer this to Kotobukiya’s version of powered up Witchblade and Alter’s version being smaller is just a bonus ^^.

A new camera, a new begining..?

As I have mention in my previous post, I was in the process of aquiring a new camera and well tadah, here it is, the Canon EOS400D brand new and just out of the box ^^. Never would have though that I would buy a DSLR but then I have always been quite interested in photography and the Ixus 850IS that I have been using for the past 6 months is getting quite limiting to me, hence an upgrade is needed. Was planning to just get a Poweshot S5IS but after much consideration, I decided to get a DSLR instead as it’s a better investment.

I got the 400D kit that comes with the EFS 17-85mm lens which cost a bit more than the one with the 18-55 lens. The whole package inclues a CF Card, a tripod, a camera bag, a UV filter and a screen protector for the lcd. Damage done was about USD 1230.

Some photos of the camera taken using the Ixus 850IS which will probably won’t see much use now ^^.

Some test shots of Tessa using the 400D, playing around with depth of field. Still trying to get use to using the viewfinder and all the settings available to me on the 400D. Had to keep the manual by my side just in case I need to refer to something ^^.

Took some shots of the dead leaves that I uses as props sometimes XD.

Mirei posing for a few more of my test shots. The lens that I got, EFS 17-85 is ok for macro shots, but still it’s nothing compare to a macro lens. The shops doesn’t have the macro lens in stock so will probably try to purchase one sometimes later. Need to save money for it ^^.


Click for larger image


Click for larger image

This was also a test shot for depth of field but done handheld, which was quite difficult since the camera ain’t light and I am still getting use to the weight.


Click for larger image

I am very satisfied with this camera, though there’s still a lot of stuff I need to learn in order to bring out it’s potential ^^. I am still considering whether to sell of my Ixus 850IS though the money I get from it won’t be enough for the macro lens but it still can pay for parts of it XD. So anyone wanna buy my 850IS, still in very good condition XD.

Chidori and Tessa

I have never really been a fan of Bome figure but not because the figures are not nice, it’s more because they uses clamp shell packaging. I have always prefer box packaging instead of clamp shell, at least with box I have a place to store the figures if I need to move or something, and boxes always looks nice :) . So how did I ended up with 2 Bome figures, simple, they were cheap and I have always wanted some figures from the anime Full Metal Panic. I got them for less than 30 bucks, though they are already open which mean no packaging, but they are in good condition, so it’s a steal :) .

Kaname Chidori and Teletha Tessa Testarossa (should just call her TTT XD) are from the anime Full Metal Panic or more specifically, these two are based on Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid. They have the honor to be the first two figures to be have a photo session using my new EOS 400D. I am not sure if the picture are any better than when I was using the 850IS, as there are still a lot of things I need to figure out about the camera. Shots are done using M, Av and A-DEP mode, with custom white balance. I directly connect my camera to my pc so that I can preview the shots right after I took them.


Click here for larger image

Not much props were use this time, as I can’t really think of a good setting for them, so it’s back to basic. I was being a bit lazy so only 1 color background is use, but kinda feel that it’s really the best color for them.

Start off with Tessa, she’s small, just about 10cm with the base. She’s wearing her Mithril uniform and playing with her hair, which she really do in the anime.

Click here for larger image

Nice detail on the uniform, with Mithril emblem on both her arm. The base she’s sitting on is also Mithril emblem and there are actually writings on it. One is the name of her submarine, the other two I am not very sure what they mean.

Click here for larger image

Since the camera have auto bracketing, I try out HDR again with this shot. I use something that resemble a hanger as a background, her base is infront of her to make it look like Mithril emblem is painted on the floor. The larger image will show more of the emblem.


Click here for larger image

Next up is Kaname Chidori, in her school uniform and holding a Harisen on her left hand. Chidori is about 14cm from the base to her hair. The barbie’s sofa made a triumphant return XD.


Click here for larger image

Quite nice detail on her uniform, but the hair sculpt kinda rough though, but if I remember correctly the anime artstyle kinda look like that, been a while since I watch it XD. Will rewatch it again once my FMP dvd arrive.

While Tessa base is Mithril emblem, Chidori’s base is a pinky oval shape base with the word Full Metal Panic (in japanese) TRS written on it.

As this is the first time I purchase a Bome figure, I am not really sure what to expect from it. Overall the figures are nice and solid, the painting is good with no visible bleeding. The sculpt is kinda rough though on certain part but still acceptable. Forgot to mention that both figures is connected to the base using a single peg, so you can spin them around the base if you want XD.

Even after getting this two girls, Bome if still not my choice for figures, but there’s another figure set that I want and only Bome has it, it’s Eclair and Lumiere from Kiddy Grade, no other company seems to have release figures of them except for Bome, but only if I can get them cheap XD.

Kiddy Grade and Eureka Seven

Finally part of the Eureka Seven DVD I have ordered have arrived, here is volume 1-3, there’s still volume 4-9 on the way XD. Will post photos and screencap of them later. Bought another artbook, hmm well not actually an artbook, more like an anime guide to Kiddy Grade. Saw it at Kinokuniya so I quickly grab it since I been meaning to get this book ever since I saw it at Play-Asia. Have always been a fan of Kiddy Grade, and I just recently rewatch the series too, can’t wait for the movie and the new season to be release ^^

Mikuru vs Anderson, Hellsing Ultimate Vol. 3

Finally got my Hellsing Ultimate Vol. 3 Limited Edition that was release recently. Was quite surprise to see that it comes with a plaque of Anderson as this was never advertised at Rightstuf. The DVD are store inside a steel case similar to Vol. 2 Limited Edition with Integra Hellsing, Seras and Walter on the cover.

With the recent announcement of Geneon closing their distribution in North America and canceling all DVDs release in NA, I am not sure what’s gonna happen to Vol. 4. I just hope some other company will pick up this title and continue releasing it.

Previous shot of Hellsing Ultimate DVD was with Yuki, this time is Mikuru turn. 2 disc, one for the anime and the other for special features which I have yet to watch :) .

Super Dimension Fortress Macross ~ 超時空要塞マクロス

Macross was the one of the first anime that I watched and spark my interest in anime. I have been meaning to get the DVD for the series for the longest time since I never did manage to watch the whole thing on TV, but never got to it until now. I have just finish watching it before I wrote this post, and the feeling is great, the anime maybe old but it’s still a good anime ^^.

I guess some of the younger generation (yes I am not young anymore *sigh*) probably doesn’t know much about this series. Macross is a love story against the backdrop of an epic battle between human and alien forces. Yup despite all the mecha and fighting, it’s actually a love story between some of the main characters. The series also have some of the nicest songs in an anime, sang by her voice actress Mari Iijima who also wrote some of the songs in the series. For more information about this series just head over to this link.

This is probably the best Macross box set to be released. AnimeEigo digitally restored, enhanced and transfer this unedited and uncut version of the original Macross TV series. It was first release as a 3 box set and later was combined into a single box set. Included in this sets are detailed liner notes on each episodes, the mecha, characters and technology.

After watching this series again, I am looking forward to Macross F which will be release in 2008, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the original Macross. Macross F will be a direct sequel to Macross 7. I should probably take some time to watch Macross Zero, prequel to the original Macross, never did finish watching it when it was released as an OVA, the disc probably somewhere in my DVD album XD.

Totally forgot that I also have the soundtrack to the series, bought it quite a long time ago, disc still play fine though haha. It contains all the songs and music from the series.
