  • This is perhaps one of the biggest news I have ever heard since I have gotten into this Dollfie Dream hobby, up until recently, most limited Dollfie Dream were only available at their respective Doll Party event and the After Event sale.  And if you somehow missed the opportunity, there was little chance for anyone to be able to acquire the limited release Dollfie Dream at the retail price, though Volks has been serious shaking things up recently by releasing Saber Alter II, plus other web exclusive ordering event.  This time, Volks is most decidedly trying to squeeze every penny out of our pockets!  Incoming the Volks Dollfie's Web-Exclusive Offer Event!!!  Not just one, but Volks is prepared to offer limited Dollfie Dream and Super Dollfie from the past 4 events!  Up to 20+ previously released limited dolls will be offered up for lottery for this web exclusive event for oversea customers!

  • Wow, it's been a long time since I had done any update!  Those of you who follow my facebook is probably aware that I have been playing the renewed MMO Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn and it's been keeping me busy for the past 2 months or so!  I have indicated in the past that I was a veteran Final Fantasy XI player in the Gilgamesh sever, upon checking I found out that the old Gilgamesh sever is no longer live and it's been merged with another sever since 2011.  I have had many fond memories of playing Final Fantasy XI and while I have taken a long break away from it for the past 7 years or so, I am finally ready to play again!

  • I have been a figure collector for well over 15 years by now, countless boxes of EMS shipments have arrived in my doorstep and not once did I have to bother to file a damage report.  But like the saying goes, there is a first of everything and it finally happened to Shining Blade Misty by Alter.  Since the figure was purchased from Amiami and it was shipped by EMS so I am insured against damages.  While the extend of the damage was not catastrophic, Misty's right arm was broken as shown here and it's easily fixable by my own but since I am paying a lot of money to have it shipped by EMS, the whole shipment along with Fate Testarossa's Swimsuit Movie version was to 6000 yen, I figured I am at least entitled to damage compensation!

  • Most recently, I have been offered a job that will likely to make me move out of my current residence and to find a place to settle down with my Dollfie Dream waifus, and while I am at it, I am considering digging into my treasure room and list some of my "reserved" Dollfie Dream for adoption/sale so I can put more money in the down payment for that new dollfie dream home (hopefully).  I am not exactly desperate to sell them, but if I can find qualify collectors who had been waiting to adopt some of these Dollfie Dream, I will be more than happy to see them off to their new home.
