Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted a haul article and since my birthday was at the beginning of this month, I thought I'd share what figures I've acquired. http://67.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5asrlf7yH1qid2nw.gif

I received both Mercedes ITEM #8279 and Kotori ITEM #318682 on my birthday as presents so those two were already unboxed and put on my shelf. However, Lloyd ITEM #158153 and Colette ITEM #158326 both arrived earlier today.

First up is the adorable Training Version Kotori Minami Nendoroid:

Kotori is my second favourite Love Live Girl (Nozomi is my favourite). I'm looking forward to receiving the training version of Nico later this year too so that I'll have my three favourites together. Kotori is just so sweet and I love that the training versions have such colourful outfits.

The next figure is Yamato's Mercedes from Odin Sphere:

I was debating whether to pre-order the Alter re-release of Mercedes but left it too late. However, I came across the Yamato version for £40 sealed from a wonderful seller so I jumped on it. My mother saw her and said she'd pay for her and put her away for my birthday as one of my presents. Despite the age of the Yamato version, the quality is fantastic! I was extremely surprised that the paintwork is nearly perfect, there weren't any obvious flaws, and that she also went together smoothly too. She looks lovely and really stands out in my collection even though she has quite a simple pose.

Now, this is one figure that I've been hunting for (for a decent price) for around a year now - Kotobukiya's Colette Brunel from Tales of Symphonia:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/talithacs1463056947.jpeg

Her price suddenly sky rocketed last year when I was able to afford her and until last week I was unable to find her for under £100. That was until I discovered an ebay auction for her brand new and since I had some extra birthday money, thought I'd try and win her. Thankfully I did! I'm so happy to have her to go with the rest of my Tales of collection finally. When I received her, I was nervous about her quality because I'd seen others that had awful paintwork and problems but thank goodness mine has only the odd spot of out of place paint, nothing really obvious though! She's gorgeous and will look lovely with my Alter Zelos ITEM #158152. The wait for her was totally worth it in my opinion!

Finally, Alter's Lloyd Irving, also from Tales of Symphonia arrived in the same parcel as Colette:

Last year, I was going to order Lloyd when I pre-ordered Alter's Asbel Lhant ITEM #236264 since they were released around the same time. However, due to space issues I decided to only go with Asbel and since then I've been looking at Lloyd debating whether to get him since I had more space. After I discovered the auction for Colette, the seller also had Lloyd and impulsively I decided to bid on him. I wasn't expecting to win him, only to try my luck but somehow I won him for a fantastic price! After unboxing him today, he's absolutely gorgeous, went together extremely easily and is so detailed overall. I'd definitely say he's the best from Alter's Tales of line that I own, just beating out Zelos. I'm so glad I won him because now I also have the set of all three from Tales of Symphonia! Now to just move them around so they can all be displayed together on my Tales shelf!

And that concludes my late birthday loot! Thank you very much for reading! http://66.media.tumblr.com/048635206cc0c915ab7246ac85321f55/tumblr_inline_nizmi3RL4W1ry72eo.gif

Nozomi is my favorite as well :D. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of the Love Live nendoroids, but I did pre-order on the Alter Nozomi figure :).
I have great memories playing Tales of Symphonia on the gamecube and on the wii :). Awesome to know that you won both of the figures!

Thank you very much! Oh gosh, you did?? Alter's Nozomi is so gorgeous but so expensive. >.< I really hope she'll look as amazing in person as she does in the prototypes and that you love her though! :D I settled for her nendoroid just because of her grabbing hands haha. XD

Symphonia was such a fun game! Definitely one of the best Tales games, thanks so much! I was worried I'd lose out to dealers like I have many times before. I once lost to one on ebay before for a Tekken figure and they re-listed it for triple the price the day they received it! :O

Ose_93 (2 jaar geleden) #9960085I bought that Lloyd figure for a friend on her birthday last year. After seeing him, I regretted not getting one for myself as well.
It's great to hear that you were able to get him for a nice price.


I would definitely recommend buying him, he's well worth it, especially if you see him pop up for a really good price! :)
Thank you, I wish I had seen him in person last year as I definitely would have happily paid full price for him on release.
