Hm, I've always been rather unhappy with excess packaging because I thought it drove up the shipping fee way too much (tight budget :D) but yeah when the box turns up damaged it's pretty lame as well. Can't have you cake, etc..

gay, I practically camped their website waiting for orders to start up as I thought the only stock would be the left-overs from WonFest. Ah well, shiny <3

I've got some photos of the box damage and the petits (I had so much trouble putting the bases together and putting them on the base ).

Spoiler for quite big images, so I'll spoiler them:


I think I've got Shiina posed wrong, but when I finally got her on the base I was so happy I just went with it. My large hands/fingers made them so hard to fit together. :P

EDIT: Yeah, changed Shiina's pose to just the standing one. I still can't even get the other base arm to fit in the thing.
I hate the stands for Nendoroid Petites, yet I keep buying them...

Seriously though, I still haven't put half of the LSxSF set up because I can't put the stands in. What's really strange is that the two Petites I have from the second Death Note set fit in their stands really easily; every other one I have... not so much.

And that is one of many reasons I NEVER take my figures out of the box.

Got this guy today; the one on the left, that is.



While the original version of the mould (Drift, the one on the right) came with three swords, Blurr has two pistols and a sniper rifle instead.



Spoiler for more pics:


As an aside, Drift will be released in Japan by TakaraTomy soon; there's a look at their take on his paint app here.

I am sadness that this just got delayed to the end of next month. It will be cool to have it shipped to me at the same time with the 1/8 Dead Master, but November is like the most painful month when it comes to figures already...

Amen, brother. I don't think I've ever had a Nendoroid Petite where I haven't gotten frustrated as hell trying to fit them into their stand. Maybe it is better to just keep them in their boxes from now on.

And awesome pictures Qikz! I'm paying my set off today, so hopefully it will get here before next week at least. You're getting the second set too, I am assuming?

Oh, both Hasbro and TakaraTomy are rolling out (pun intended) new figures.

One I'd be particularly interested in, if I could ever afford it, would be the upcoming Masterpiece Rodimus. The figure will not only be able to turn into a car and robot version of Hot Rod, but also the space-winnebago and bigger-robot forms of Rodimus Prime! (I heard that Hasbro, if they bring him to the West, might skip the trailer part, though...)

Yup, had the second set on preorder too.

I'm really, really not looking forward to putting the bases together. I still can't actually fit Shiina's second base arm together, as in the one that conects to her back and not her hair.

It just will not go in.

rant- All i have to say as long as there is no UPS involved it should be good. They left a package on my friend's doorstep in shambles. Products broken and so forth with 300 dollars worth of stuff inside. In my area some little shit disturbers would steal it.

I ordered an original version Dead Master today, to go with my black blade BRS. Also the re-release of Flandre, and the new China from Griffon.

Currently debating whether to get the Kannagi trio on ebay. I really do quite like them, but ebay runs the risk of bootlegs, plus they are a bit overpriced (Range particularly).

Not owning a glass cabinet = dust issue and the like. Then the issue of keeping them balanced, where they get positioned, avoiding grime/sweat, something falling on them.

I know, I know...

I've kept my more valuable figures in their boxes until I get a proper cabinet but other figures with my other figures I just have to get them out of their boxes!

What's the point of owning something if you can't enjoy it? I mean how can a thing be yours if it doesn't age with you?

IMHO, figmas are not that valuable that they should be kept in a glass cabinet

@fall: Definitely no room in my bedroom for one. Plus it's an unnecessary expense.

@npal: That all depends on what one values. For me, seeing them is enough and I enjoy that. I don't need to touch them. If you do, then so be it. Personally, I think getting them soiled/degraded is disrespectful to the spirit of the character. I'd rather keep it in mint condition, but that's me.

@revan: Each to their own. I only own one Figma myself, but that's beside the point. I'm sure that person's habit of getting that many Figmas is a mix of passion and being budget conscious. What on earth is wrong with that?

Not a thing,
but I believe that unlike static PVC figures, figmas are meant to be "played" with. At least I certainly wouldn't just keep them in their boxes, nor in a cabinet. That way they loose their original purpose

Yeah, I just don't have the space to display them, plus I would have the boxes to store away which I don't have room for either. I've opened most of the figures. Made them do silly stuff like this lol I've been collecting some of the Ghostbuster movie figures too.
