I've recently bought 2 new figures. They were released ages ago and are quite hard to find, so I had to pay lots for them.

This one arrived today, I ordered it off ebay a month ago (all the official retailers are out of stock), but SAL is slow (although it lets you dodge tax/handling fees sometimes :shifty: ). It's Char Rhouseman from the Shuraki Trinity set released by GSC. I don't even know if she's an anime character, I just saw the review one day on Danny Choo and HAD to get it.

She's a brilliant figure. Probably the most detailed one I have so far. You also get lots of little parts to customise her, and she can be fully cast off.

The only down side is she's looking down, so when on display I can't see her face :( . Time for some shelves I think :idea: .

edit: You also get lots of little "goodies" with this figure. These include a book, drama CD and posters (although I think the posters were extras from the ebay seller, not sure). I've not bothered reading/looking at any of it yet though.

The other figure I bought is a very rare C.C. figure by Banpresto. She cost 3 places above the decimal point and is currently in customs waiting for release. Shipped by EMS, I'm expected a letter in the next day or so saying "Come pay us the monies"; or it could say "Confiscated" :lol: .

This is probably the only C.C. figure out just now that I looks good. It was a must buy, especially after reading lots of reviews. Those things just make me want to buy more :lol: .

When you have to chose between paying for food or figures, that the time to stop :P

I got Tokyo Godfathers and FMA: The Conqueror of Shamballa in the post.

I just ordered Mahoromatic and Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, £26 for the pair. :D

I thought that as they are rereleasing our mascot's series, I best see what it was all about. Purely for research purposes. :shifty:

I saw a woman today with a little backpack on that was in the shape of a white Mokana (from XxxHolic).

I was standing in the que waiting to pay for my hot chocolate (it was snowing this morning) when I saw her. By the time I got to the end of the que and paid she was nowhere to be seen. Bugger.
Why yes, I am bored. How could you tell?

Went into second hand dvd shop to look around. Found Metropolis for £5. Went to pay and came away with it as well as the complete series of Quantum Leap(£45) which they had up behind the counter. Damn strategic placing!

I bought some new goodies recently:

Another figure I've been wanting to get was at £20-ish, so that was a bargain (RRP ~£50 before P&P). It's Benisu from They are my Noble Masters, which is a series I enjoyed. The figure has been out for a while now, but I just never got round to buying it.

I've also bought a Dakimakura. For those that don't know what that is, it's a body pillow. It'll be my first one so I'll find out if I like it or not when it arrives. I'll maybe post a pic; but it's got a different image on each side. Again from They are my Nobel Masters it's Benisu and Shinra printed on it.

Also on the calmer side of things I've pre-ordered
Death Note vol 5
Shana vol 6 (well it's not pre-ordered, but it's bundled with it :( )

Also I managed to find a 5 year old digital camera in the attic and decided to have a go at taking pictures of my current figures. They're not very good, and I had to use the GIMP Un-sharp mask to improve them a bit. They are also really low res images - well that's my excuse for being crap with the camera :P .
Here's a link to the album

edit: added password: twofivezeroone. You can also snoop around all my images, stupid PB won't let me hide my main album :el:

You'll have to make them public.

I can't believe that figure's wearing enough clothes for 3 of your usual ones. :P

:lol: Turns out this figure does have removable clothing too. I didn't know about that, since all the review sites showed her in the maid dress. It's the black skirt that can be fully removed, which looks really odd when you reconnect the legs to the apron.
