  • Overall, this is a fairly nice Asuka figure, nice facial expression (I like the deredere Asuka), the painting is good, just about everything is good except this figure can't stand straight!  Like I have talked about in one of my earlier figure collection topic.  This figure has tortmented me for ages and I have tried various different techniques to try keep her straight.  I tried tipping her over, putting something under her base and even tried to glue her feet down to the base.  None of those techniques worked.  While I was working on my Detolf Dioder project earlier today (This Asuka has always been inside the Detolf), I finally decided to put an end to this problem.  But none of the previous techniques had worked before, what could I possibly do?  But I am an Engineer, I have to figure out a way around the problem!  Finally, it came to me... I need to pin her down like what people do with their resin kits!

  • Today is another very productive day in the Memorial Day weekdend.  I finally got myself together to complete the Detolf Dioder project that I have been putting off for months.  Unlike the current trend in the figurine collectors community, I have not been a huge fan of the Ikea Detolf due to it's inability to adjust shelf height, and therefore, inefficient use of the precious little space that I have in my room (notice the huge empty space above the figurines above the 2nd shelf?).  However, I do have a Detolf in the little corner of my room where it's most suitable and I have finally decided to put the Ikea Dioder strip on it.

  • Project Tenso phase 2 and End of May loot inspection

    This experimental project known as Project Tenso is meant to be a test run to say what I can do with a real Japanese address. To be absolutely honest here, it was not as easy as I had hoped. The biggest problem as it will remain, is that I don't have a Japanese credit card with a Japanese address... now Amazon Japan is quite far along with dealing with oversea customer and they even have options in their payment system to allow you to enter a separate billing address from the shipping address, so no problem there.

  • All Riders vs. Great Shockers

    I have heard about this rumor about a all rider gathering movie since the beginning of the month but I was finally able to confirm it myself after watching Kamen Rider Decade EP17 where Decade has just finished up with the Kabuto World.

  • Schoolmate Sweet! final wrap up

    As we are drawing close to the end of May, a new Illusion game @Home Maid is slated to hit the street. Judging from the information I have been able gathered so far, I have reason to believe it will be a better game than the previous two releases from Illusion Soft, as both Schoolmate Sweet! and Box-Hako- both failed to generate enough interest in the gaming community.

  • Still in the middle of planning my come back strategy on adopting Rin Tosaka Dollfie Dream, whether I should go straight to Yahoo Japan Auction (a few Rin Tosaka DD has already popped up on Yahoo Japan Auction but they all come at a ridiculous price, some even ask for as much as 90000yen for a 50000yen Dollfie Rin, no thanks, I am not in that much of a hurry!), or try to take a shot at the After event items, still undecided.  In the mean time, two of boxes have arrived for inspection for the month of May, this is the 3nd round of loots arrival for the month so far.  Let's take a look at what we have here:

  • Ahhh, I finally got my hands on the 3D Custom Girl Saber Lily mod after so long (ok, I admit I haven't spent too much time on looking for it).  Thanks to the good folks at Hongfire, the mod has been uploaded in megaupload since last month!  The link can be found under this post.  It's not really news anymore to those who are actively playing 3DCG, but for those of us who don't have the time to sort through the thousands of mods that are already out there, this is a huge find!  I have noticed that someone has made this mod since march on this post, but the sad thing is I haven't been able to devote any time to find it, but I finally found it today!
