It’s a little sad for my one year and 2 year anniversary posts appearing on the front page of this blog. To be honest I’ve been super depressed that I haven’t still been able to get a job that I pretty much stopped blogging altogether, even though I still have plenty of new figmas to review yet… including but not limited to all 5 HTT members and Black ★ Rock Shooter. I definitely plan to add more photos and reviews to the site, as well as other things, but my priority these days has been to find work. I have to apologize to whoever comes across this blog hoping to see newer figmas reviewed, it’s just that my life has sucked since last November >< I’m hoping to get some sort of work soon so that I can bring up my mood and start blogging proper again. In the meantime, I want to thank all of you who continue to visit, even though there isn’t any new content. Hopefully soon I can resume my blogging and bring reviews of more recent figmas.
This past weekend I downloaded a video to my iPhone through iTunes and iWatched it on my iPhone. The problem was that my iPhone was at desk level, so I had to look down to watch, making it difficult. So I did what any figma maniac with a di:stage would do: I made a stand for my iPhone!

It seems that my SP figmas have found my most recent delivery before I had the chance to open it… I hope they don’t cause too much mischeif ^^;
It’s my one year anniversary of my first post on this blog, exactly one year ago today, 10/12/2008 ^o^ My first post wasn’t really noticed from what I could tell, but I was only a novice blogger at that time. I’ve since upgraded my typing ability, image storage capacity (thanks to flickr) and my photo taking ability (thanks to a Canon DSLR I got with my tax return this year.) My first post was figma Cosplay Time.
I’d like to thank my readers for reading and commenting on my posts, so I thought the best way would be with a set of wallpapers I collected over the summer. They can be found here, and they are a collection of wallpapers featuring Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS characters parodying the opening theme animation to the anime K-ON. Thanks for reading and supporting this humble blogger’s little blog, and I will continue to post more and more reviews in the future! Σd(>口<)
Wowzers, I can’t believe I’ve hit 100 comments already! As a thank you to all of you who read this humble little blog, a taste of things to come. This is a panel from my upcoming continuation of the “3 Girls vs Ace of the TSAB” figure comic I’ve been working on the the better part of the year. It’s not perfect, but once resized, I don’t think anyone will be able to tell the difference ^^
I’m going to be attending Anime Expo ’09 next week to pick up some more figmas and meet up with some friends, plus San Diego Comic-Con is at the end of the month, where I plan to pick up some more Gunpla. July is going to be a very busy month between these 2 cons and work, so I will try to blog every so often to let you guys know I’m still here! I plan to post my haul from each con as I get them, so please stay tuned and stay cool!
PS. As most of you know, a legend passed yesterday in the form of a cardiac arrest. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and children of Michael Jackson. You will never be forgotton.
I was so impressed with how Destiny Mikuru came out that I decided to start up the figma Theater again! I’ve had several ideas running about my head with how to continue and end the current run of The three girls vs. the Ace of the TSAB and just need time to photoshoot and implement it. Please bear with me as I set it up, I promise it’ll be great! I think I might have to break out of the 4koma style though, as the action I’m planning lends more to a comic book style, but I’m going to need to insert backgrounds, so I need to get a green screen so I can do that. Might need to “hire” a background painter as well ;) Anyway, enough of me talking, let’s get to the pictures! (image heavy post!) Continue reading ‘The Return of figma Theater’
An idea I had last night, but I had left my Cheer Girl parts at work. Sticky tack was used to affix the backpack and stand to Mikuru’s back, Cheer Girl Mikuru’s accessory hands to wield Excalibur.
I still think Danny Choo’s is better though, since his uses the MSIA Desiny parts, while I’m using the 1/144 HG Destiny gunpla parts. BUT mine has wings of light! ^o^
Can you see what small detail GSC and MF included in their newest figma? Click here to see what I’m talking about! I’m trying to decide between this Mikuru and the recently released Culture Festival Tsuruya I received yesterday to review next. Which one should I review???
It seems that during my hiatus I seem to have hit 10,000 page views. I hope you all don’t think I’m ignoring you by not posting more reviews even though most of you KNOW that I’ve been getting more figures in the past few months. Just a lot of stupid stuff has been happening in my life, and I’m taking a bit of time to soak it all in.
In figma news, the Culture Festival Tsuruya and Combat Waitress Mikuru figmas are slated to release this friday, and I am putting in a preorder for them tonight. I have reviews queue’d up for a number of figmas, that if you follow my flickr, you’d know which ones I mean. One is displayed at the top of this post ^^ I promise to get to them very soon, so please be patient with me! Thank you, everyone!
