  • It feels like it's been forever since I got around to talk about my PVC figure hobby, although taking a backseat to Dollfie Dream for the past few years; but quite a few figures that are slated to be released in the next few months have caught my attention recently.  Sooner or later, I am going to have to swap out some of my older figures that are slowly becoming relics of the past with the newer generation, more vibrant and dare I say, sexier figures due to come out in the next few months.

  • It's that time of the year again, Merry Christmas everyone~  A few days ago, I had my DD 森川由綺 Morikawa Yuki delivered our best wishes for everyone and earlier today, I received my package from Amiami for the month today just in time for Christmas; however, my special Christmas present is actually being prepared by none other than my most precious and beloved Dollfie Dream daughter Sakuya マキシマ・サクヤ ♥♥♥~

  • As I walked through the isles, I noticed a whole variety of Lego including The Hobbit, most probably because of the promotional effort for the movie itself; as I have pretty much decided what I wanted to get for the donation, just before I decided to take off, something caught my eyes that could potentially fit my Dollfie Dream daughters.... The One Ring that is featured in this Riddles for the Ring set!  Having spent much of my childhood playing Lego myself I can't help but think that if the One Ring is to fit over the top of a 1x1 brick, then the probability of it fitting on Dollfie Dream is extremely high!  Since the set really didn't cost much and it's the holiday so why not give it a shot?  So along with the other gift I bought, I went to the register and paid for them.

  • I have made no secret in the past that I have always been a fan of Tony Taka's work, so when I picked up the news back in March that Volks was getting ready to release Dollfie Dream Sakuya サクヤ (also known as Maxima Enfield in Shining Hearts) based on the PSP game Shining Blade as the 3rd Dollfie Dream based on the work of Tony Taka, I knew it in my heart that I have to pick her up even before the official photos were available!

Based on the information from my contact who attended Dolpa 27, Rise and Cirno were actually sold out a little bit ahead Sakuya and based on unofficial counting, Volks actually made more Dollfie Dream available at the event compared to HTDP Kyoto 9, although it is unclear if that will translate into more DDs available for the After Event lottery.  I knew I couldn't wait or leave it up to chances (since Sakuya is a "must have" DD for me, so I went ahead with the Auction route.  Thanks to the lighting fast reaction from my deputy service, Sakuya has arrived from Japan within merely six days!

  • As Dolpa 27 came to a close last Sunday, I am sure those of us who did not have a chance to attend the doll party are eagerly awaiting for the announcement of the After Event sale (those of you who are not familiar with After Event, please read up on my Where to buy a Dollfie Dream guide).  The actual After Event sale is on May 26th but Volks will begin accepting After Event lottery applications for limited items between May18th - 22th Japan time.  Since MDD Cirno was not available for Volks USA lottery, this After Event represent the only opportunity for those of you who are looking to acquire one directly from Volks; although it is not 100% clear at this point Cirno will be available to international lottery, but I have yet to see any indication that suggest otherwise.

  • Ever since I was a little kid, I have been watching Tokusatsu shows such as Ultraman, Daitenjin 17, Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, it was part of my youth and I still appreciate this genre until this very day.  With the few years I have been in this hobby, I have developed a thing for group photo such as my August Four Riders.  Fast forward to last September of last year when Volks announced the Type Moon X Dollfie Dream project, the thought had occurred to me that I have finally managed to assemble my very own Saber Sentai in Dollfie Dream form!

  • It's been just over 2 weeks since the official announcement of the limited Dollfie Dream due to be available at Dolpa 27 on May 6th, today Volks USA has confirmed that Shining Blade Dollfie Dream Sakuya and Persona 4 Rise Kujikawa will be available for lottery in US.  The most notable omission of announcement is the Touhou Dollfie Dream Cirno, which is apparently not available for Volks USA lottery.  In reality, that's not totally out of the realm of my expectation since Touhou merchandises are never really officially made available for sale outside of Japan... Dollfie Dream Sakuya Izayoi recently broke that trend by exploiting the loop hole of International After Event lottery, and I expect the same will hold true for Cirno, only time will tell for sure.

  • I have been waiting for the release of this dollfie dream ever since I saw her character introduction during my playthrough for the Shining Hearts Dollfie Dream Airy and Neris, but I guess they saved the best for last; and Sakuya was only a guest character known as Maxima in Shining Hearts (to hide her true identity for obvious reasons), her true story actually begin in Shining Blade, so I guess that make sense in a way~
