(Anime Figure TEIM) What's on the pre-order list right now?
Group Trio
Well, because I have not done anything in a looooong time on here, I decided to do what everyone seems to be doing nowadays. And, that's show off their Anime figure pre-order list so far. I don't have that many mind you, but they are going to mean a LOT to me when they finally arrive here at my house :D

Max Factory's 1/7 Scale Tsumugi Kotobuki Waitress ver. 

As soon as I saw her on Good Smile Company's website, I knew I just had to have her. She is just so charming and lovable. I also looove her waitress outfit, the food and trays she's holding, her expression, colors, and how her shoes are all nice and shiny - almost looking polished right before she went into work at the cafe. She's going to be costing me $127 though due to that fact that shipping is going to be a nightmare on me. Coming from HobbyLink Japan, located directly in Japan, they don't mess around with shipping when it comes to FedEX. Ugh. But, she's going to be TOTALLY worth it. I mean, come on! How can you say "no" to that cute face and outfit? Max Factory sure knew how to tug at my heart strings with her. I can't wait for May because that's when she's being released. So, anyways, here's to her being as great as the prototype shots are! And, they sure look amazing to boot. 

Kotobukiya's 1/8 Scale Ruri Gokou (Kuroneko) 

I honestly haven't the foggiest as to exactly whyyyy I decided to pre-order her. Was it her outfit? Maybe. Was it her expression? Possibly. Was it the Anime, price of it, and the fact that she's a pretty darn good character? YES. Beating Kurino by a landslide in the character aspect of the Anime in my eyes, I decided to go for it all and just pre-order the figure. When I ordered her on AmiAmi she was literally only $58. And, being the height she is, that isn't too bad whatsoever. I was flabbergasted at the price honestly. They have her for 19% off still (20% at the time when I ordered her) , which is spectacular because she is only $73 at the original retail price anyways. So, go savings! And, well, a good price for a figure too. She comes out in June, so I can't wait till I have her in my collection. I am worried about her a little bit, though. The Kurino figure by the same company dulled down her colors (especially the hair) by a couple shades and I definitely don't want that to happen to this one. Also, her eyes can be improved. But, much much love to her dress and shoes. 

Good Smile Company's 1/8 Scale Hatsune Miku LAT-Type ver. 

I was literally pondering at the fact of pre-ordering her for hours on end. I just did not know if I truly wanted to get her or not. I kept thinking of getting her, not getting her, waiting for a long time, not getting her, getting her, not getting her, being indecisive, and then I FINALLY decided to get her because once again the price for her is good and she is just adorable. At the time of ordering, she was was only $57. Her glasses and microphone are removable so you can get the feeling of the original Miku design, which is pretty cool, but she just looks so much better with them and they really bring the figure together. I think she looks just adorable and younger then the original Hatsune Miku design and figure. It took me a long time to finally decide to order her, but I think I'm going to be very happy with her in the end. She comes out in August. I am sure that she'll look amazing when they finally release her to everyone, but I am just hoping that GSC will do a good job with her painting. In prototype shots on some blogs around the net, there are some spots that definitely need fixing. But, I'm not worried about it at all. Like I said, confident that they'll do a great job on her. 

Okay, so you might be wondering "Hey! Jeez - where are you getting this money from?!". Well, I am working for people in my town for the next couple months and it just so happens that I will be getting enough money for the Kuroneko figure by the time I have to pay for her on AmiAmi. So, that works out perfectly. I am saving up all the money I am getting from my father that is earned by working around the house for the Hatsune Miku figure, so that works out. And, my father is generously buying me the Tsumugi figure as a birthday present (or, at least I am thinking of it as that). So, that is extremely awesome of him. And, I am truly thankful for it. YAY! :D

There is also a figure that I am DEFINITELY getting without question. And, it's below. 

Max Factory's figma Hatsune Miku Append ver.

Ahhhhh figma #100. How lovely you are. I am getting this w/o question. It's just gorgeous and it is going to be the figma of the year. No doubt about it in my mind. I don't care if I have to do without money for a little while, I'm getting this figma. Everything about it is just spectacular and it comes with three faces. The default "cute" face that you see above, a calm face, and the illusive PVC scaled figure face. Also, the details on it are just above and beyond and the air brushing on her legs are just amazing. I am just flabbergasted by it in general. I can't say anything more than that. However, Max Factory/Good Smile Company has not officially announced it yet (a.k.a prototype shots like above) and it is making me mad, anxious, eager and exited all at the same time. But, there is a picture of official shots here. Now, they just have to officially announce it and then have pre-orders start and I will be happy. But, until then I feel like banging by head on my computer desk because I am getting flusterated that I can't pre-order it yet. URGHHHHH. I want it so badly. Just start pre-orders already!  ;_;

And, I know for a fact that she'll be gone within the first day of pre-orders opening (or, even the first few hours) so I'm going to have to stay up till at least 1 in the morning so I can get my order in and then go to bed (Japan time you know...). I mean, it's going to be a fight to get her. It's going to be crazy I tell you! Crazy! But, totally and completely worth it in the end. I just need to stay up and then I will have her. And, not spend $100+ to get one of the original figma Mikus. I can get this one and have it at the same price as normal figmas. It's going to be great! <3
