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 :DMax 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.
