  • While majority of my otaku spending is being devoted to pamper my two most favorite Dollife Dream daughters such as DD Saber Lily and DD Kiriha Kuze in recent months, I do occasionally pick up some pvc figures if I find the character design are good enough.  Two of such figures emerged from Wonder Festival Winter 2011, and coincidentally both figures are based on characters in recent PSP game from SEGA: Shining Hearts, and to top that off, both characters are designed by famous illustrator Tony Taka.  Now, I don't think I need any excuse to say I have always been a Tony Taka fan but since most of his work were focused on the 2D art in the past, I haven't had the opportunity to load up on a lot of figures based on his design yet, except for Kotone Ousaka from Native of course!

  • Just what exactly is a Dollfie Dream?  (For the sake of simplicity, I will just cover the most relevant topic, the DD Basic Body 2/DDIF) Dollfie Dream is a line of 60cm tall (or 1/3 scale) character doll made by a company called Volks (there are other companies which make similar dolls, but it's outside the scope of this topic), which is composed of a highly articulated Dollfie Dream Inner Frame DDIF covered by various hard/soft vinyl skin parts and customized head mold and face-up.

  • Volks HTDP Osaka 6 After Event

    This post probably should have gone out last week! All thanks to Starcraft II I have completely forgotten to follow up on the Home Town Dolpa Osaka 6 After Event Limited Item Lottery. The Entry period has already started, if you are interested in acquiring these limited items, go directly to Volks International website and they will have all the details available. I have been keeping track of the after market pricing trend lately and it seems to me that none of the Osaka 6 limited items are in high demand. In more than a few occasions, the price level of these limited DDs have even fallen below their retail value. Though in all honestly, the Osaka 6 offering probably aren't as appealing as the recently debuted White Album Dollfie Dream; and on top of that... the Pure White Symphony game really pissed me off, I can't even bring myself to rant about 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.
