(AFA 09)The Figure Show @SG

December 11, 2009 1 comment

One major draw of this year’s AFA was bring the Tokyo Figure Show to Singapore.  It was also an opportunity for us to catch a glimpse of  Danny Choo, who brought with him a fantastic lineup from Good Smile Company (affectionately known as GSC). For those who are still left lingering in the dark, GSC is responsible for depleting my financial resources as they keep creating and selling lovely pose-able figurines like Nendoroids (and figmas). And in some attempt at keeping track of my purchases, I have created a corner on my sidebar that lists the Nendos that will be joining my chibi army in the following months.

Now onto the figures…

The lovely lady above is the Figma incarnation of  Mirai Suenaga, site mascot for dannychoo.com.

And here we have comrade Kodomut‘s itachari. Makes me wish I there was one on a more Nendo scale for my Nendos to play with.

There was the whole Nendoroid lineup, from the oldest to the newest release. Since I have quite a few Nendos in my collection already, I didn’t spent much time taking pictures of them. But I like this picture as it features Nendoroid Melissa Seraphy, who I think is super duper cute! She is one Nendoroid I don’t have and will kill to get. Looks like she is on my wishlist to get while I’m in Japan sometime next week. =)

Mikuru looking good in her Meido outfit. I kind of like Mikuru, but she was a little too wimpy for my taste.

And I have no idea who this is… But I totally adore this backview. I actually like looking at scaled figures but I will never invest monnies to get one because of the lack of display space I have. And my logic is that if I have it, I should flaunt it, and not keep it hidden in a box under my bed.

I have no idea who this is either. But I love the angle and attention to detail.

And lastly, we have the famous Black Rock Shooter figurine. She is simply gorgeous. And I hope I will get a chance to steal her from *someone*, so I can get upclose and personal with this alternate version of Hatsune Miku.

More dollies tomorrow. Stay tuned. =D

Have a bite of Nendo Raspberyl if you dare. =P

Anyone missed me? =D

Since the end of my school term and the start of my holidays, I’ve been busy busy busy. After working hard, it has been time to play even harder. I have been pretty caught up in a whirlwind of social engagements and my Nendos remain neglected.

Let’s see if I can get the posting groove back and start posting more consistently. =P

(Dailybits) Yako resurfaces

It’s been a while since Yako had some airtime. =) This pic is from an archive of neglected photographs. I vaguely remember taking this picture near some old HDB flats above Bras Basah Complex.  It’s quite a unique juxtaposition, having HDB flats sticking out in the midst of a busy business and shopping district.

I picked up my ticket for Anime Festival Asia aka AFA 09. ^^ So glad that I was able to get the tickets today instead of making a trip down to Suntec on the Friday before the event to collect the tix. Much love to KKnM for making things so much easier.

I was at AFA 08 and enjoyed myself .  Many things have happened since then and my addiction to Nendoroids has introduced me to a new circle of friends. So this year’s event looks to be as deliciously promising as the website suggests it to be. =)

Unfortunately, I’ll be missing out on attending the concert.  The ticket prices are simply too steep and I need to save up for my upcoming trip to Japan this December (WINTER COMIKET HERE I COME~!). All I can hope for is that I’ll be able to squeeze into the public viewing area and catch a few glimpses of the performances.

Photobucket

The sad thing about AFA 09 is that it’s right before the submissions for my major assignments. So I’ll have to spend half my time stalking a-world-famous-blogger-who-shares-the-same-initials-as-me and the rest of the time trying to type out a few thousand words for a literature essay on Sebby. Oh well, I’ll just try to finish up all my work before running wild around the event hall. =P

Is everyone excited about AFA 09 yet?

Yuki: Oro? Ra-ki-Tsu-ta?


About two weeks ago (?), I spent alot of monnies to support the Lucky Star franchise. ^^”” Though I’m not quite the hardcore LS fan, I do adore the series and will have to find time to re-watch the anime. My favourite character has to be Konata and I aspire to be like Kuroi-Sensei.

The day started out as a casual visit to KKnM, with no intention of getting anything at all. But when I walked into the shop, I could not help but notice the LS line-up of figmas on display. I’ve been thinking of getting the LS girls for a while now, as they really look good in their Figma incarnations. However, I was distracted by the sweet temptation of Nendoroid Saber Lily and couldn’t make up my mind. After all the ‘helpful’ advice from the people at the counter, I decided to get the LS figmas and ditch Saber Lily. I figured that she would be easy to borrow (*hints hints*).

As it turned out, giving up the Nendoroid was a blessing in disguise. Because I wouldn’t have been able to afford the entire Lucky Star Nendoroid Puchi otherwise. Getting the LS Puchis was a stroke of luck. The production and distribution for the LS Puchis was quite a while back and it is near impossible to get a complete set unless someone puts them up for sale online, probably with an exorbitant price tag.

It just so happened that I was at the right place at the right time and I managed to grab the set from Ani-Play (a local shop in Sunshine Plaza, just a few steps from KKnM). Apparently someone had ordered the Puchis but never came to pick it up, so it was put back on the shelves for sale. =D Now I have all 10 designs + 1 Special character + one extra Konata in her swimsuit gear.

And here’s the whole loot~! 3 Figmas + 12 Nendoroid Puchi

Reisen-chan wonders if her time infront of camera has been threatened by the arrival of the n00bz.

While poor Yuki is just shocked at being surrounded by all the boxes. =D

Little Nendochi Konata has become my personal cheerleader. Looking at her just makes me happy.

It will probably another 2 weeks before I start breathing again.
