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.

Figure Review: Unison Vita

I’m not totally sure as to how many went and got Vita’s Unison version, rather than the regular Vita. In my experience here, I was practically the only one who bought Unison Vita, though a quick check of my feedreader and google show that there are at least a couple of people who like the striking color scheme of Unison Vita. Anyway, what do I have to say about her?

A moderate amount of things.

New Figures and Some Other Stuff

I just realized that Rein’s been waiting in the shop since last month, so I went there to pick her up. figma Nanoha was just out too, so I got her as well. On the way back, I stopped by the Fully Booked in the Promenade in the hopes that they were able to get copies of ARIA or AQUA. Sadly, they did not. They did, on the other hand, have a bit of new manga, including Ani-Manga of a GITS 2 movie, its prequel, and some other things. There were also a couple of Hana Kimi artbooks, two different FMA artbooks, and even an Eva one. Unfortunately, the latter one was out of my budget. I also spotted a pair of Shana light novels – I figured I might as well, so I got the first and reserved the other.

no real title.

Well, seeing as now is college applications time, I’ll be mulling over how to write essays without getting to thousand-word reports of my life story, as well as getting my ass in gear and getting first honors, basically A’s for every subject for the entire schoolyear (also known as mental suicide), as well as other things I have to do, so I’ll be rather busy. And dead-tired, considering I have both refresher courses on Math and Filipino, as well as Japanese classes on Saturdays.

On the other hand, a friend gave me his Shirakawa Nanaka figure because he had to throw her out, so yay for that. Yes, I display her that way because her legs are hot The legs are very well-sculpted. Also, thanks to a signal 3 typhoon, I’ll be having no classes, so yay for that as well. I guess I have nothing to contribute anymore, so I’ll just post a bunch of random wallpapers, courtesy of moe.imouto.org.

Random Figure Photography

After I got my display shelf, I never got to shooting properly figures until yesterday at around 2 in the morning, and once more about 4 hours ago. I only have red felt paper for photography as of now, so I decided to just reshoot Fate. I think the shots turned out better than my previous try (though the images have long been deleted since, so I can’t really compare).

I used to have a relatively small table with just about no space above it, so I couldn’t really go for underside shots. However, this time, I have a good bit of space now (after removing one of the glass shelves). I also had some really strong lighting; however, I didn’t have any “white” light, and the cabinet’s pinlight is yellowish, so I ended up having to use 2 incandescent lights, one of which is from my lava lamp LOL
Thankfully, the camera had different white balance settings, so they still look pretty decent. Anyway, have a few of what I think are the better ones.
