Hi guys…a relatively small haul for the end of July and with so much “extra” time on my hands you would expect more photos of my existing figure collection right? (whoops!). July saw the arrival finally of two anticipated figures that had constantly been pushed back in release by my supplier. But with this shipment out of the way my eyes are focusing towards what is looking like a very saturated September release schedule (hope my Credit Card can cope!).
Also as a result of the fairly light July of deliveries I have started a new Blog for the miniature wargame “Warmachine” I used to be a very big fan of the game and have only just gotten back into it after escaping the World of Warcraft (3 weeks and clean!). So now that I have gone cold turkey from my digital crack, I can finally can re-addicted to copious amounts of metal and plastic lol. For my readers who are interested in Warmachine, please visit my new Blog “Red Metal Panic”
Right with out further delay here are the figures
Ok I fully admit to not knowing anything about Villetta Nu, I think she is a character from Code Geass but I know nothing about the series. I bought this figure completely based on the sculpt and also due to the lack of releases for me in Summer. The other two however I am very familiar with.
Choun Shiryu Armoured version from Happinet: I have the Toy’s Works version of Kanu Un chou which has this very fantasy looking armour style and that was the main lure of this figure. The design takes a very obvious Japanese style with Samurai esque Shoulder armour but the weapon is a pole arm as opposed to her Samurai Sword which I find strange. The concept photos showed her armour as being grey but in reality its a strange Olive drab type colour, I suspect that the colour contrasts got messed up by too much light or something as I know that photographing greens can be tricky under certain conditions.
The final figure of this months haul is the infamous Asagi Igawa from Taimanin Asagi, sculpted by Liquid Stone, released by Liquid F. This figure is amazing, the sculpt is very true to the Hentai and there are lots of details despite the plain design of her costume. This figure was pushed back by quite a few months due to popularity in the East and as a result I got mine (US supplier) almost 4 months later then everyone else (No cancel policy). Either ways it is here now and I am happy, as a bonus and possibly part of the delay? the box comes with some posters of Asagi.
So that wraps up July releases, I also got the single “Falco” by Hitomi Shimatani, its a oldish track (2-3 years?) which I really like and if people want I can link the video in my Vodpod (righ hand side column) just pop a comment and I will do it.
August is also looking relatively bare for incoming stuff, but I have received word that one very anticipated figure is being packed for shipping now, Rosario + Vampire’s Moka is a beautiful figure and should be shipping around now. I am looking looking forward to this particular arrival and doing a photo shoot of the 3 figures I currently have.
Thanks for reading all and as always please feel free to leave comments etc
