Alter 1/7 Yagami Hayate GET

I still need a larger Nanoha; anyone in the Philippines willing to sell? 😀

I actually got her yesterday over at WasabiToys right after school, but I was too tired to make a post about it all. When I got to the store, I went straight to the counter and asked, “I’d like to claim a pre-order I have a downpayment on.” I fished my little receipt for verification and got the go signal. I picked up the figure, paid my dues, put down a reservation for a Fate figma, and went on my merry way.

You could probably fit a little kid in Hayate’s box.

Except, I had an over-half-cubic-meter box with me. Seriously. Some people said the box was “big”, and, like I did with Fate, assumed that the box would merely be “big”, and, going by those standards, in comparison, Hayate’s box is the size of a small African country. Dimensions are W 27.5 H 38.5 L 46.5, compared to Fate’s W 24.5 H 29.5 L 40.5.
I salute the two others who ordered their own (I saw three boxes in total) because they will most definitely be getting their 5,500 PHP worth. I’m still wishing for Exelica, albeit 9 months late, to arrive, however.

Sure feels weird to have a big Rein and small Rein though. Small small boss! ❤

Edit: whoops; messed up image URL’s.


Accounting for 2008

As any regular reader of this blog will know by now, I am an incredibly impulsive spender, which translates to well, lots of needless spending and what I would call, “bad buys”. Because of my rabid fandom for some things, I also tend to completely ignore the price when it comes down to it, like Adun. There have been a number of factors that somehow inhibited my overall spending, such as figures that never arrived, the global economic crisis, and another new hobby. Still, compared to previous years, my spending has still increased significantly. Hit the jump for details.

Oh Sweet Jesus I am Flat Broke


But she is sooooo worth it.


Wonderfulness in a Box


I finally got my Aria boxset \o/
Many thanks to Diego.

fucking huge

And I got a pair of Pioneer SE-M290’s because they were going for cheap. Not too bad, by my standards.


In Anticipation of an Aria

The boxset, that is. Diego’s probably ordered one for each of us already so we now play the waiting game.
As a pre-Aria sort of experience, I went and got myself Aria Volume 3, the latest so far (just published September this year). It’s indeed a very wonderful thing. Also stopped by AniCon 2008. Not really worth going to, but there were less sponsors. That’s cool. And there was a maid cafe (which I couldn’t get into because everyone kept staying for so long). Hit the jump if you care for the long version.

Real Life Updates Again

delicious ink

Got myself some nice fountain pen ink – Aurora Blue – and it went for pretty cheap too. I’ll probably start buying bottles en masse and hoarding them because there aren’t any other decent places to get the stuff.

Also, my grandmother died. Apparently a blood vessel in her head burst and she lapsed into a coma. They terminated the meds and she died three days later – around 1 am today.

I don’t know why, but I don’t really feel sad about it. I mean, while she is family, we were never that close. No real bonds were formed I guess, and when you don’t become attached to something or someone, it’s just that much easier to let go.


Megami Deluxe Vol. 10

Saw it in the window while headed home. I initially dismissed it as a bad idea, though when the cover indicated it had stuff from Shana, Clannad, Lucky Star, StrikerS, and sola, the inner stupid money-spender in me had to have it. So I got it.
I’m sure someone else more diligent than I has scanned it, so I won’t bother (and my scanner’s busted anyway, so the point’s moot). Megami Deluxe, as always, also includes a ginormous pinup – this time with Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate in cosplay (cover image) and Shana and the group in bunny suits.
A few of my more favorite ones after the jump. I seriously need to start cutting down on stuff I buy.
