  • Figure Collection Topic – Dust shield +1

    I have discussed how I use 3M film to protect my figurine collection from dust, but there was always a big flaw in my original plan. The fact that I leave the bottom edge open for easy access has led to some figurines being covered in dust due to air draft from some of my computers. As anyone who has done failure mode analysis would tell you, prevention is always weighted more importantly than detection. Cleaning the dust after you see them is in no way as effective as preventing the dust from accumulating in the first place. It's also my believe that dust get attracted to object because of the charged ion in the air within indoor environment. Conventionally, you would use a brush to brush off the dust, but that alone could generate static charge on the surface that ended up attracting the dust again. Have you ever gotten the feeling why you can't quite brush the dust off?

  • March loot wrap up March 27th

    I am particularly worried about this Queen's Gate Alice shipment, since it has taken almost 3 weeks for it to arrive. Luckily, the shipper finally agreed to ship Alice out with a card board box (Pretty weak looking box if you ask me, and no bubble wrap). I would like to mention special thanks to comrade twu from theinfernoproject.wordpress.com for his warning on this seller's habit of not properly packaging shipment and enrius from enrius.wordpress.com for giving us his status as well. Since we all have ordered Alice from the same ebay seller. This is excellent collaboration at work here.

  • Shihodo Narika Cho Henshin version Alter 1/8

    For the past few days I have been replaying Beat Blade Haruka (or Choko Sennin Haruka) for Subaru's background story to go with her photos shoot. During the process I think I realized I have always had a soft spot for tsundere (think Asuka Langley Soryu from Evangelion). I never really knew why I bought so many of her figures, I always though it was the long hair, but there must be more to it. Then I realized it has got to be the tsundere effect (I only learned about this term recently). And a few days ago, Alter open this figure for reservation.

  • May it's just me, but I have a policy that I have to be somewhat familiar with the history of the figure I possess.  That stubborness has lead me to search for things I have never heard of before.  For example, Kotona Elegance from Zoid Genesis, Touka Kureha from Shinning Wind, Feena Fam Earthlight from Brighter than dawning blue, etc... and many more.  This time, it is Hiyori Pixy from GSC and Queen's Gate Alice from Megahouse.
