February 2016 has been an interesting month. I have scrapped my old profile here on MFC, "PickyCollector," and replaced it with a new profile to match my new toy photography profile on Tumblr. Deadpool's movie the hit I was hoping it would be, I got to enjoy Pokemon's 20th anniversary, and my parents have informed me about their plans to move in the next two years after my mother retires. They are thinking about moving to Flordia. This works really well for me. I currently live with my parents and have been looking at Florida as a place to move to in the next few years once I have enough money saved. My original plan involved getting multiple part time jobs, move a state over, get a better job there, save more money, then move to Florida or somewhere else like California or New York. So if we do this, I can skip all that and just go straight to Florida in less than half of the estimated time.

On the negative side, February has continued 2016's non-stop emotional challenges. January started off with my 95 year old grandma having another major health episode. She was moved into a hospital and has been a hospital living facility since then. She is pretty much on her last legs. Now in February, my best feline friend for 17 years passed away. T_T

Everyone in my family loved this cat very much, especially my dad. I think he was hurt by this most of all. This cat was like his best friend too. He was in very good shape until is past couple of weeks when his kidneys shut down. Then he just went into a comatose like state from his body poisoning itself. He was a great cat with a distinct personality and more distinct sound. Our home already feels so much emptier now that he is gone, but he will be cremated and kept in a beautiful urn. My only regret is that I did not pester him with figure pictures more often. Rest in peace my friend. T_T

Anyway, enough feelings. Let's get started with this month's haul, and it has been a great one! :D














Nendoroid Clips 1.5 + Naruto Uzumaki key chain
ITEM #142906 ITEM #133863

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457121131.jpeg




I picked up some more Nendoroid 1.5 clips because I wanted to clip up my Sakura Kinomoto Figma and Nendoroid. Money well spent. :3
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457124973.jpeg
The third clip is for if and when I decide to have Kirby float on my display. The key chain is because Naruto. :P















Limited edition TMNT aluminum art print by James Jean
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456938348.jpeg
It took a while to get here, but the free aluminum art print that comes with the purchase of all four Ninja Turtle sculptures finally arrived.
ITEM #255265 ITEM #255266 ITEM #255268 ITEM #255270















Tokyo Otaku Mode exclusive "Playback" tapestry otakumode.com/s...
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457118932.jpeg
I ordered this a couple of months ago, but it finally got here. I have been checking out some of TOM's exclusive art prints and I found this. I have to admit that they have some great stuff there.














Monster Musume, Volume 8
ITEM #340566

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456938350.jpeg
Oh what sexy and chaotic misadventures will Darling get dragged into now? :D















Shovel Knight (Wii U)
www.amazon.com/...

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456938352.jpeg
Amazon has Shovel Knight on sale for under $20, so I just had to jump on that. Honoka has been glued to my Wii U ever since she started playing it. :P














Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (PS4)
Limited Exclusive Naruto & Sasuke Statues by Tsume

ITEM #335024 ITEM #323314 ITEM #323840

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457114676.jpeg
This has been the highlight of this month's loot. I caved and bought the limited edition statues with my copy of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. Hands down two of the best things I have ever owned period. These statues are absolutely mind blowing. Click the link below for my in depth review of these statues.

Madoka Kaname Figma and Nendoroid
ITEM #61338 ITEM #61090

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457114678.jpeg
I have recently started watching "Puella Magi Madoka Magica" and have really gotten into it. So I decided to pick these up.




These were A/B pre-owneds from AmiAmi, but I noticed that both of their torsos were a little sticky. But I have fixed that.

Kirby + Sega Saturn Nendoroid
ITEM #287773 ITEM #236279

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457114682.jpeg




I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of these two Nendoroids. I have already been having much fun playing with them.

Kanna 1/6 scale by Alter
ITEM #144298

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456940489.jpeg
I wanted to get this figure when it was released two years ago, but I had no money. Fortunately, Tokyo Otaku Mode had it on sale for a good price. Got it for about $67. And for a figure this beautiful, I think that was a hell of a bargain.




Honoka: He's right. Kanna is sooooo pretty! http://s13270.storage.proboards.com/6133270/i/MoH9btZMGFfsIUJKoQsG.png
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456940491.jpeg
Click that link below! Spidey-kun wrote a really nice review about her. :D

Love Live Figma and Nendoroids
ITEM #318689 ITEM #287759 ITEM #318692

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457114680.jpeg




Hooray! The original trio are together again!
*claps tiny spider hands in joy* :D

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457117630.jpeg




Now that Umi is here, hopefully she can help me rein in Honoka and her mischievous ways. :P
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457117632.jpeg




Now let's check out the Nendoroids.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457118934.jpeg
And to think I was original planning on skipping these. I am glad I caved.
These are undoubtedly two of the cutest Nendoroids I have ever seen. :D





These two complement so nicely. Both of them come with their favorite foods and both of them have some of the cutest face plates I have ever seen which also perfectly fit their personalities.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457115758.jpeg
The perfect Nendoroids of my two best girls. Definitely in the top 5 best Nendoroids I have ever had. I plan of having a lot of picture fun with these two. :D

And I will explain to you the wonders of white rice.

Haul of Hestia
ITEM #331528 ITEM #317521
ITEM #400230 ITEM #338551 ITEM #361088

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456938808.jpeg
I got a nice bundle of Danmachi merch from AmiAmi. Two chibi figures, two wall scrolls and an oppai mouse pad.




This Cu-Poche and Nendoroid really cute the place up something fierce.

My favorite item in this bundle is this super large wall scroll.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456939750.jpeg

With its massive size and crystal clear print quality, it is the perfect backdrop for my sexy shelf where all of my waifus will be on display. It also contrasts very well with my red walls. :D
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/thumbnails/ChocolateSpider1456939752.jpeg http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/thumbnails/ChocolateSpider1456939754.jpeg http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/thumbnails/ChocolateSpider1456939756.jpeg




This wall scroll is nice too.
It is nice to have two wall scrolls that have both Hestia and Bell on them. :3

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456944524.jpeg





Then comes the bestest mouse pad in the history of ever! O3O
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457122666.jpeg
I think I will just have it displayed on its easel.
This looks too pretty for me to dirty it with oils and dead skin cells from my wrist.


I just love how uncomfortable my parents get when they look at it. I have seen my dad shiver in disgust. It is the funniest thing ever. XD




I really like the box too. I wish I could find a image file of this Hestia drawing.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456938814.jpeg
I would love to have a wall scroll with this image of Hestia on it. http://33.media.tumblr.com/avatar_041694196891_30.png














Sakura Kinomoto (School Uniform) Figma
ITEM #261649

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457124969.jpeg
I just had to pick this up because Sakura is such a cutie. Plus I wanted to see if the roller blading accessories would work on other Figmas. It seems Honoka has already answered that question for me.




Unilke the first Sakura Figma and the Nendoroid, this Sakura seems rather defiant towards tummy booping. But that only make it cuter when she gets booped. :3
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457124971.jpeg














Variable Action Heroes: Nami
ITEM #315829

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1456855185.jpeg
At last I have a decent action figure of Nami that captures her sexy glory.
Click the link below for my review of this action figure. :)

Model kit completed (Liger Zero Panzer)
ITEM #100376

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/ChocolateSpider1457045367.jpeg
I got this model kit back in August, but have not gotten around to putting it together until this month. But now I finally have my #1 favorite Zoid on display. Liger Zero Panzer! Woooo! :D

Since it seems that no one has uploaded pics of this despite numerous re-releases, I have taken the liberty of photographing loads of different shots of this mechanical marvel.

Now that I have finished this, I only have three more model kits left to finish building. Liger Zero Jeager, Liger Zero Schneider and Raven's Geno Saurer
ITEM #86772 ITEM #67001 ITEM #69392


I also have an interesting video project in mind for Panzer. But it may be a while before I can show it to you. ;3














Now let's take a look at everything together.
(Wall Scrolls, clips and keychain excluded)

Next month I should have several packages arriving at the same time from AmiAmi. I have found an interesting loop hole in their combine orders feature which seems to result in a pseudo private warehouse feature.

I keep all orders for one month bundled into one order. Then once everything is in stock, I split all of the items into several unregistered packages. That almost always seems to be less expensive than putting it all into one box, but only by $4-8.

Then I found that some of those split orders somehow are able to be combined with next month's set of pre-orders. It does not work every time nor on every set of split orders, but I have managed to push off payment for two mini wall scrolls released at the end of February for late March by combining them with another wall scroll pre-ordered.

I will try this more in the future and share the results with everyone here.














Thanks for reading, everyone.
Here is a sneak peek at what I should be getting in March. :D

I see! Thank you :3 Guess I will get a frame for mine when I get them. I can't imagine anyone really uses these as mousepads (at least a lot anyways) because yeah it would ruin them over time >_<

Did your mouse pad come with that stand? There's still two mouse pads I need to get and I would love to have a stand for them but I will likely get a shadowbox and frame them^^ And don't worry, my dad shakes his head when he sees some of what I buy and then my mom shields her eyes haha. But nice loot! I especially like your Naruto figures. Pretty stellar.

HobbyCentric (2 jaar geleden) #7118173I like them both quite a bit. Red and blue are about equal in terms of color "favorites" of mine. What tipped the balance for me was the red variant is wearing stockings.....Ohhh, those legs and stockings. A weakness of mine. Can't argue with that. :P

ChocolateSpider (2 jaar geleden) #7118169I have had my eyes on her for a while, but could not fit her into my budget until now. Got her A/B on AmiAmi hand had enough points to bring her down to about $50 after shipping. I personally like the blue better. Somehow it just pops out more when I look at it. Plus the red one would blend in too much in my room because my walls are red.
