Helloooooooo MFC!! I've fallen into the Jojo void so I got some loot for it! Mostly figures and manga/books. It was a long journey, but I'm happy to say that I finished the anime and am currently reading part 6! This is my first blog post so I really hope that you enjoy my fangirling. :D

Here's nearly everything!(Silly me forgot to include the Hirohiko Araki artbook. ( ̄ω ̄;))

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/06/18/2456849.jpeg
ITEM #609605

The first item I got was this part 4 Jotaro! I love this look because it really fits his more mellowed out personality and I think the white/pastel colour scheme looks good on him. I really wish that his base was clear plastic since I think it's a bit distracting. Thankfully, he can stand fairly well on his own so I only needed to use it for this picture ~ (I learned the hard way that taking photos of figures on a bed really wasn't a good idea!)

ITEM #641089

Next up is one of my favourite Jojos ; Josuke! (as if the name and profiler don't give it away) I originally wanted to get ITEM #99558 but the seller ended the auction literally last minute. :// However I quickly found this Grandista figure and I fell in love with his pose so I decided to get him!

I was shocked at how massive he is especially for the price. I especially like the detail of his waffle hair. Jotaro's base is a bit big, but Josuke's is a massive chunk of plastic! But thankfully he can also stand on his own so I can keep that abomination out of the way. There are a few minor issues with the paint (mostly on the flap of his jacket) but overall for the price and size, I'm pretty happy!

ITEM #189870

Here's my gorgeous boy; Joesph! (No offence Jotaro and Josuke, I love you too <3) He's one of my personal favourite Jojos because of his confidence, his kindness towards his friends/family and how funny he is so I needed to get a figure of him. Unfortunately, there aren't too many figures of young Joesph in general. ;.; But I stumbled upon this beauty on MFC and I decided that this is the figure I gotta get if nothing else.

When I saw the price tag of him on Ebay/Amazon I got a mini sheer heart attack. I checked Ebay every few days for a month or two...and I found an action for him starting at €10. Gasp this is my chance!! ヽ(°〇°)ノ I was bidding against someone else til the very last minute and I won by a hair. I'm honestly over the moon, he doesn't come with a box or stand but I honestly don't care. The colours, casual outfit and face are all gorgeous! I think they captured the essence of Joesph perfectly.

ITEM #136407ITEM #180694ITEM #132954

Here's my new books/manga! I really respect Araki as an artist and the way he tells a story so I really wanted to appreciate his art and see his process behind the scenes.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/06/18/2456850.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/06/18/2456848.jpeg
ITEM #136407

This artbook...where do I even start? I highly recommend it to both Jojo and non-Jojo fans. Araki's artwork speaks for itself and it's honestly worth every penny. (It even includes some of his pre-Jojo work and promotional stuff!) I only wish that any of his artbooks were translated since I would love to read his comments, techniques, etc.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/06/18/2456854.jpeg
ITEM #180694

Ah yes the one that started it all! I'm very happy with the quality and affordability of these hardbacks. As someone who collects manga, this is among the best releases I've ever owned. I would love to collect the whole series very soon! Fingers crossed that we get the whole manga localised in English soon! (and stuff like the Rohan short stories pretty please Viz)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/06/18/2456853.jpeg

I've only started reading Araki's manga theory book and it's interesting to see the behind the scenes techniques in terms of writing/publishing manga. I got the book both for myself to learn some tips if I ever start writing a manga/comic and also so I see the many inner workings that go into making Jojo and other stories.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/06/18/2457023.jpeg
ITEM #132954

Rohan at The Louvre was a really enjoyable short story. To be perfectly honest I originally got it for a laugh, but it's unironically fantastic! The artwork and colours convey the emotions of the scenes perfectly. I think the story is well worth a read even solely for the art alone. The paper quality is fantastic and really brings out the colours, I really recommend to give it a read at least once especially a physical copy if possible.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/06/18/2456855.jpeg

Jotaro looks very angry. (He can feel Koichi's pain!) ! I wish that my Jotaro was more to scale, but sure lesson learned for next time. That aside, I'm very happy with how they all look overall! They remind me of all the good times I've had watching, drawing and talking about Jojo with friends.

Thanks so much for reading! I hope that you have a lovely day! :D

JosukeWasHere3 maand(en) geleden#79324997Thank you so much, I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed my post! :D I'm very tempted to get another version of Jotaro too! Especially his part 6 look its so stylish! I could go on about the Joesph figure hahaha I'm happy that you have him too! I think he might be the best young Joesph that's released. (still surprised that he's a prize figure since the quality is so good!)
Yessss his artwork is really inspiring to me omg especially since at the time I started watching Jojo I had a bit of artists block honestly. I totally agree to see it in A4 and colour is a sight to be seen @.@ Hopefully, we can get more coloured releases one day!

You're welcome! :D

Ooh I'd absolutely love more figures of him in his part 6 outfit too!
Here's hoping for that when Stone Ocean eventually gets animated.

Definitely agree about Joseph. His Ichiban Kuji is for sure the best one of him, and one of the nicest JoJo figures in general.
His anniversaries Kuji [ITEM #121322] is another favourite of mine.

I'm glad it helped you with your art block too.
And for sure, I'd love to see more of JoJo in colour as well :)

JosukeWasHere3 maand(en) geleden#79325122Thank you so much!! I'm happy that you enjoyed my article. :D I wish there were more figures of young Joesph too ;.; In comparison to other MCs he really got the short end of the stick in that regard. I had no idea there was a young Joesph nendo coming out tho, looks like I'll have to start saving up straight away. And omg tequila Joesph would be perfect!! I need best girl my life Fingers crossed that someone releases it someday. (pretty please)
As for the artbooks ITEM #136407 goes for around €70-€90 on Ebay, but I would recommend trying YahooJapan auctions through a proxy if you can since I've seen various Jojo artbooks pop up there!


He really did get the short end of the stick compared to other MCs (*cough* PART 3 JOTARO *cough*). I hope someday we get an onslaught of Part 2 Jojo figures to make up for the lacking market. Including a detailed version of Tequila Joseph (OMG). Maybe that should be a separate Nendo all together XD

Oh wow! Quite pricey! NVM I checked the page and realized it is from 2012 hence the price. I will try then your recommendation on YahooJapan for the auctions! :3

No problem & good luck! <:

Everything you said about Joseph, agree 100%! You really did snag a holy grail of Jojo figures.. the prices for him are insane on Ebay and so I am happy to see you were able to get him on bid! :3 He looks so magnificent TT I really wish there were more figures of younger Joseph out there but sadly, the only one coming out now is the Nendo (which I ain't complaining at all--please Medicos, include tequila Joseph as well!.
In part to your review, you have peaked my interest in getting the other art books by Araki other than the Louvre one. :) I hope they were not too expensive(?)

Where are you from? I'm in Europe, so I just looked for Jojoveller on the German Amazon, so since it was shipped within the EU, there was no import taxes. I got it for a really good price too!

strawberrylatte3 maand(en) geleden#79324404Very nice haul!
I always love seeing JoJo-centric loot posts :)
I have the part 3 version of the Jotaro figure you got.
I was so tempted to order the other version too. I still am lol
Love the Josuke figure as well!
And Ichiban Kuji Joseph is such a beauty and still a favourite of mine.
Araki's art is always so inspiring.
I really enjoyed reading his Manga in Theory book as well. And the art in Rohan at the Louvre is so gorgeous and detailed.
It's a real treat seeing his works in a larger format and coloured.
Thanks for sharing, and I hope you have a lovely day too ^-^
