May/June loot!May/June loot!

solluxcaptorsolluxcaptor2 jaar geledenLoot
Finally about time to write a new loot post, I always enjoy writing these and sharing with you guys what I've gotten in recently! I'll start with a photo of (almost) everything as always:

http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/DSCF1156_zpshilwdnw2.jpg
These days I'm focusing far more on buying the things I really want rather than anything that looks good and fits into my budget, which is making me FAR happier in the long term. :D Right now my focus is on collecting RAH (particularly Jojo), particular figures that I really want, Ashita no Joe goods and some badges/straps for my ita bag plans. A few other things too, just for fun :P

First I'll start with the one thing I accidentally left out of my round up picture! But I didn't wanna take it again when I realised after I spent so long making it all nice and neatly organised for a photo ;-;
http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/DSCF1266_zps3yoiq2de.jpghttp://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/eee4_zpsvm21umwc.jpg
Beach Queens Astarotte! I actually spent quite a long time waiting to pick her up a good price, and she doesn't disappoint! I have a bit of a weakness for cute succubus (Catherine and Astarotte being my favourites) and this figure hits so many of my moe points I just HAD to get it: succubus, cute swimsuit, blonde, loli, moe fang, tsundere... really the moment I set my eyes on it I knew I had to own this one :D You can see her having a beach party with Madoka and Kuroneko on my shelf!

Next I'll show my small goods! Starting with the badges/pins which have become my new obsession to collect...
http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/DSCF1163_zps4ijteoda.jpg
LOTS of Osomatsu-san as I'm working on a Osomatsu-san ita bag themed around all the brothers cause I can't really choose just one :D My favourites are probably pretty obvious from this loot... Ichimatsu and Choromatsu are my favourite, Ichi is my very favourite but he's the hardest to buy for and Choromatsu isn't very popular so I end up with LOTS of Choro goods. Not complaining though! I also bought some Ashita no Joe straps for my growing collection, eventually I'd like to make a smaller bag themed around Joe but I'll probably have to buy doubles of everything because I want them in my 'main' collection too, being a collector is difficult ><;;

Useful goods! I really do love merchandise that is useful in daily life, it just makes things more exciting and fun :D I searched a long time for these Kira glasses (I wanna enjoy breakfast with the husbando *_* ) and suddenly a bunch of them popped up on Mandarake for 100 yen each so I grabbed two and the Josuke one too! Also picked up a cute Princess Precure bento box and Makishima thermal tumbler, I was looking for new ones so why not pick up a themed one that I like? :D

Here's a close up on the Jojo glasses because they have cool illustrations that show up when you fill them with liquid which you can see when I put them on a dark backdrop too:

Next up, miscellaneous goods!
http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/DSCF1174_zpsisbc6w4p.jpg
Firstly the ESPer Nyanko plush which I pre-ordered from Amiami... I kind of regret that because it ended up costing a lot more than expected. All I ordered was that and one Ichimatsu strap and I got charged for customs on it so I regret it even more... OTL But when I got him he's really soft and cute, I'm going to use him as a prop for my Ichimatsu cosplay so I don't really mind it :D I just learnt to be more careful with my pre-orders.
In the middle is an Ashita no Joe book I picked up pretty cheap cause they said the condition was bad but I spot no flaws on it... it's REALLY thick, each page has images on so I can look at it and enjoy but it makes me wish I could read the text and see what it's all about too >< SO MUCH information and pictures inside!!
Aaaaand on the right is an example of me having no self control and an obsession taken too far. They remind me of... really ugly beach shorts? Actually they are like a perfect fit for me so I'm gonna assume they're not adult size since I'm super small lol ;;; But I bought them cause they always showed up cheap in the Ashita no Joe search on Mandarake and I need to have EVERYTHING in my collection :P Though I don't know what to do with them now. why do I have no self control, I feel like I'm admitting at an addiction therapy session here


There's also a poster in the tiny book which is pretty cool, just hard to photograph while also pulling it out >< (Also it matches my nails which I think is nice ahahaha)

More books!

I noticed these go up on Mandarake for 100 yen each, and I didn't know what they were so I did the ONLY logical thing and bought them all to find out... not disappointed at all, they're like really cool comics made with screens from the anime! :D The condition of them is amazing too considering they are quite aged, I'm always amazed by that.

Ashita no Joe art book <3 Isn't the cover just beautiful? I really love this one but I'm just an art book fan in general. There's a lot in here, for example the entire story is shown in animation panels, but my favourite is definitely the character sketches. I'll put some pictures of the contents under a spoiler incase anyone wants to see :D

He's so cute in that last sketch it's my favourite one, I want to protect his smile ;0;


Now finally onto what you guys are REALLY here for, I'll show the rest of the figures! :D
http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/13595953_1633411806949943_1642177579_n_zpsmg6qx3tp.jpg
Josuke is my latest Jojo RAH beauty in my collection and I adore him *___* I caught him for 10k on Mandarake which felt like a real deal!! There are a few scuffs on the box but that's pretty much the only issue. He looks really purple in the light, but the real colour is very dark with a subtle purple tone which I love.

Always happy to add to my Jojo RAH collection, slowly getting there aiming to collect them all :D

http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/DSCF1211_zpsvndolrt4.jpg
AAAAH I searched about a year for this beauty, almost caved to buying her almost £70 on eBay, but I decided to keep waiting and happily got her at 4k on Mandarake!! So happy when my efforts waiting pay off! :D She seems like brand new condition too.

http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u485/s0lluxcaptor/DSCF1220_zpsfmsulbrp.jpg
Really she is SO beautiful and even larger than I expected, she towers over the rest of my collection!! Definitely larger than the 1/7 listed in the MFC article. I love the way that her base looks very classy, just like marble decoration and very regal, it suits the character and series very well. I wish they'd make a matching Marie Antoinette but we're lucky to get figures for this series at all it seems.

She is a prize figure and an older one at that so she's not perfect, a few visible seam lines etc but unless you are looking up close it is fine. I love her so much, sooo happy to own this <3 One of my favourite things about this figure is actually the face sculpt, remember when anime characters had noses? My biggest pet peeve is when you look at an anime figure from the side and it looks flat or like a squished sphere... Oscar looks very realistic and beautiful having actual facial features.

I've already talked about Joe before so I won't write too much, but I'm still absolutely in love with this RAH!! For one of their older pieces, he is AMAZING and I just love it. His face sculpt is really spot on, and the quality of his clothing is amazing.

I hope that you guys enjoyed this one, it was a pleasure for me to write as always but it would be nice to hear if you enjoyed it! :D

solluxcaptor (2 jaar geleden) #12938260Yesss do it!! I was no sports anime fan myself beforehand at ALL and I had also had the two main plotpoints spoiled for me, but it didn't make me enjoy the series any less, obviously I fell entirely in love with it myself. It's just an incredibly gripping story with amazing well developed characters and many scenes that make you feel full of emotion even if you knew they were coming, I recommend it 100%

Haha, I'm putting it on my to-watch list right now! ^^ Don't have any expectations soon btw, as I have so much stuff to watch and I also saw Ashita no Joe has a really high amount of episodes. o.o

And yeah every genre has it's exceptions with series that are great in it! :) I was just scared with Ashita no Joe because I had so much spoilered already. >.<

solluxcaptor (2 jaar geleden) #12515130Thank you! I love your icon, by the way. Griffith is always a great choice, I'd use him as my icon myself if Kirino wasn't like my self-insert avatar on here :P

Ah Thanks! its good to know Griffith is well loved ;)

mickeydeerho (2 jaar geleden) #12524191Awesome loot haul. I'm guessing that is a Kuroneko beach queen in the back. The more I see Ashita no Joe in your blogs, the more I have to find it. And the Joe rah is really cool too.
Thank you :D Always happy to bring some interest to the series!! Kuroneko is actually this prize figure: ITEM #144451 but a beach one all the same :D
