・。*∘˚✽ HI THERE! ✽˚∘*・
I always love reading your guys loot posts so I wanted to give it a try myself :3
Due to various delays the recent months were way more package-heavy than usual, so now or never I guess.

Besides, my friends always look at me with concern as if I burn money for a living when I tell them about a new figure I bought. So I‘ll use this opportunity to fawn over my new plastic family members ♥

・。*∘˚✽ Precious Kiddo Gintoki ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #118051

I watched Gintama three months ago and fell in love with the show and especially the characters. Among my favourite series it‘s actually the first one with many and - behold yourself - affordable figures. Didn’t knew something like this was within the realms of possibility. Therefore I experienced a completely new kind of problem:
The agony of choice.
First came Shinsuke cause his contemptuous smile is graillevel (/•-•)/♥
ITEM #287834
And now kiddo Gintoki joined the reunion. I’m a sucker for good heart crushing flashbacks and this figure captures all those vibes. Have to get Sougo, Kamui and „Zura janai, Katsura da!“ as well... when I have money left… welp I guess that’s a problem for future me :3

From cute to cocky:
・。*∘˚✽ Gilgamesh ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #603828

FIIINALLY… months of fawning over other peoples pictures and now he has FINALLY arrived. Kinda looked forward to being looked down upon by him, not gonna lie haha. Every mongrel needs a sassy demigod ♥
At first I ordered his Nendoroid because I wanted to have SOMETHING from Gil but didn’t wanna spend too much on this series. Then I gave in to his abs on this scale and a neat price figure is pre-ordered. Obviously my plan failed. Have mercy on me Fate. I hope the upcoming Kingu release won’t challenge my record on how much I’m willing to pay for PVC^^ Wanna display those beauties together ♥

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/03/2399575.jpeg

Speaking of abs:
・。*∘˚✽ Garou ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #806191

One month ago an unawaited package was delivered and dropped to the ground right before my eyes. I thought "Whatever may be in there, it's likely to be dead by now." Inside the package was poor boy Garou.
I had already given up on him, cause his tracking history didn't got any update for TWO WHOLE MONTHS. Garou found his way out of delivery-limbus and survived the attempted murder of my postwoman. On top of that he‘s safe and sound and way more beautiful than imagined. My boy truly broke his limiter there ಥ_ಥ
Pictures can’t do him justice. As if the glory of those abs could be conveyed through an image haha ;)
But seriously, I’m impressed with this new Pop Up Parade figure line. As far as a rookie like me can tell, the material is just like those of scales. He‘s small, but therefore matches perfectly with some of my price figures ♡
I would have prefered other iconic poses of Garou over this one, his hair has some insignificant flaws and there is a tiny paint transfer on the thumb of his left hand. Ergo not visible if you don’t bend your neck like Orochimaru from Naruto. And besides, scales aren’t exactly known for being flawless either^^
I bought him for about 3200 Yen … me and my wallet are in love with this figure line! Haha. Hope they’ll release some neat characters ♡

・。*∘˚✽ DaBae ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #849848

Everytime a neat price figure pops up on Amiami with the note „Due to distribution reasons…“ I curse fate. What could be a quick and cheap addition to my monthly Amiami dose ends up as a twice as expensive order from some fishy store I’ve never heard of before. As if the price figure is saying:
„Hah you thought this would be easy, didn’t cha. You have to earn me you lazy figure junkie.“
But I have to say: Dabi was definitly worth the trouble. The pose they chose is fluent and epic and he’s all in all simply gorgeous! ♥ His sculpt is intentionally „rough“ which gives off a certain manga vibe. As if he walked straight out of a panel. I think his facial skintone should be a tad lighter, but that’s nothing major.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/03/2399577.jpeg

Also I would love to know what Dabi keeps in his little pocket!
Chocolate to throw at Shigaraki when he gets hangry?

His partner in crime:
・。*∘˚✽ Shigaraki ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #849846

Great figure as expected. ✲゚*。
Although I’m not supporting this permanent palmface of his. Wanna see his cute face haha.
Aaah I really hoped his Kotobukiya scale would come with a visible face option… actually quite sad it didn’t. I mean, why going out of your way to make a second faceplate WITHOUT SHOWING HIS FACE??? I like Kotobukiya, but it seems as if the sculptor didn’t care about Shigaraki at all. Not as if we would BARELY get to see his face in the series. Aaah how frustrating… that said, pretty sure I‘ll get him nevertheless cause it’s Shigaraki. Damn you Koto for playing with my feelings like that.
Sorry, got a bit carried away^^

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/03/2399576.jpeg

Cute fact: If you position Shigaraki behind Dabi it looks like he wants to tousle Dabis hair.
Can’t blame him ^-^

・。*∘˚✽ Shigaraki Nendoroid ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #849593

And now to the Nendo version of Shigaraki. I definitely have a thing for creepy looking nendorofied characters. (/•-•)/♥ Gotta catch em all… welp actually I neither have enough money nor Pokeballs, so I’ll have to focus on those dear to me ^-^
Mad respect to GSC for giving the „villains“ of Boku no Hero Academia some love. Especially since they announced my burnt little cookie DaBae *insertfangirlscreaming*. If they also bless me with Hawks and Aizawa-sensei nothing can stop me from some doujinshi inspired fotoshootings ✲゚*。
Not the biggest fan of his arms though… Imo his outfit isn’t necessarily one that benefits from those movable joints. And when I remove the optional hands his arms look a little bit squished and patched up...therefore I gave him Ashs shirt. Since Ash is currently busy with Eiji he has no use for it anyway. In addition Shigaraki got a cat eared hoodie cause it’s mad cute haha. Will change it back to his original hair eventually cause I really love his messy curls. Generally I would have prefered his design later on in the manga, because I’m a sucker for neat coats, but that’s just me daydreaming :3
Btw I’m madly in love with the fact that he has an exchangeable ahoge!!!
Like a second faceplate just for his hair (•□•)
Cuteness knows no limits.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/03/2399573.jpeg

・。*∘˚✽ Kaito Nendoroid ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #822760

Since I end up rooting for the villains of an anime more often than not, a „villain“ getting his own series like Kaito was just what I needed. And now he even has his own Nendoroid. And a top tier at that.
There are so many different display options and accessoires, I’m swamped. Would love to display him together with Conan…

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/03/2399574.jpeg

・。*∘˚✽ Light Yagami Nendoroid ✽˚∘*・
ITEM #806020

I just love him (/•-•)/♥
He looks fabulous and even in his chibi form I wouldn’t put it past him to take over the world.
On top of that, he gives me some level of solace for not being able to obtain my ultimate grail. Still waiting for a scale of Light I can actually afford^^

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/03/2399572.jpeg

・。*∘˚✽ Nendoroid Dolls and Manga ✽˚∘*・

I got two of those Nendoroid Doll bodies, some additional hands and the Dazai Nendoroid Doll is preordered...
I love how they look in photos, but I’m still uncertain if I’ll actually use them a lot.
Guess I should get them some clothes first^^
As you can see, I also picked up some manga volumes from Boku no Hero Academia. Maybe I should have gone for english ones. The german translation, at least in volume 9 and 10, is just plain cringy.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/03/03/2399570.jpeg

・。*∘˚✽ Nendoroid Deco-Stuff ✽˚∘*・

My Nendo shelf is slowly getting crowded, so I decided to build them a new home. Like a real miniature home. I’m totally obsessed with all those cute dioramas folks on MFC build for their Nendoroids. I especially love the idea of all my favourite characters living together in a shared house ♥ So I’ll give it a try. The possibilities are endless and my ceiling is the limit ✲゚*。
So far I got the Re-Ment Antique Shop, stuff from local miniature online shops and more or less usefull stuff laying around in my appartment.
Wish me luck!

・。*∘˚✽ THANKS FOR READING! ✽˚∘*・

Hope you found it somewhat interesting.
Feel free to leave a comment if you have any thoughts, questions or just wanna share my excitement over those little plastic beings :3

I have a question on my mind, but don’t wanna write an own blog post about it, so let’s just make a poll right here.
(If anyone came this far haha)
It also fits this haul since it looks like I bought only questionable characters^^

Do you tend to root for the heroes or the „villains“ of a story?
Would like to know if there are others out there who get easily drawn to the „dark side“^^...
My reason for asking:View spoilerHide spoilerI love storys which are immersive to an extend that you really learn to understand WHY people are doing what they‘re doing. For the sake of simplicity let’s talk about saving people (could also be defending an ideology or whatever). If the storywriting makes me truly understand why some people are valuable to a person, few things are more touching than whitnessing a character risking his life in order to protect them. It‘s even more meaningful when it’s out of character.
But for me, nothing is more tedious than a character putting his life on the line from the get go because:
„JUSTICE DUH“
That said, the vast majority of animes I’ve watched featured main characters who are exactly that:
The embodiment of moral virtue.
Thus not relatable at all. Not for me at least^^
Of course, having such a character as the main protagonists doesn’t mean it‘s a bad show. Some of my favourite series have this kind of trope. Usually they hook me with fascinating side characters or antagonists. Which made me question: If the creator is able to write complex and intruiging characters, why not make them the protragonist in the first place? Durarara!! told from the perspective of Izaya Orihara? Boku no Villain Academia instead of Boku no Hero Academia? Sounds great to me haha. Heck, sprinkle a bit more oppression on the Gouvernment regulating quirks and the villains could be to the heroes what the pirates of One Piece are to the marines (/•-•)/♥

Since there are also animes with villains as protagonists and the definition of a „villian“ is up to moral beliefs it’s kinda hard to phrase this right…

evenstar88Hace 4 meses#76088892I love reading your post! And for the poll, I chose Morally grey, but definitely troubled characters with some issues. I think characters like that have a lot of depth and are a lot more interesting than the you-are-either-good-or-evil characters - it's the reason I love the Kuroshitsuji series - no one in there is a hero, and each have their own twisted game to play.
Aww thank you (/•ヮ•)/ ♥
I agree with you 100%.
Yeah Kuroshitsuji was great! Such stories are next level thought-provoking.
Bonus point: Twisted characters are often quite hot haha.

solluxcaptorHace 4 meses#76089122I love this haul, so cool to see a big focus on male character figures since they can be quite underrated.
Thank you! :3 Male character figures definitely deserve more love ♡

IntoOpenWatersHace 4 meses#76089215Thank you so much for bringing that Gintoki to my attention. That might be an instant grail for me! (I'd better casually tell me boyfriend I added it to my wish list since my birthday is coming up...)
And seriously, the Re-Ment Antique Shop set looks way better in your photos than it does in the official photos. I was already interested in it (specifically for my Harry Potter Nendos), but now I think I'm sold.
Awesome haul, and a fun read!

Haha my pleasure and glad I had good timing ;) It really is a unique Gintoki figure ♡
Aww nice to hear ^-^ I love the set. Especially combined with some other antique looking things ✲゚*。 The chess board would be perfect for your Harry Potter Nendos :D
Hope my Nendos will be satisfied with my home decorating skills^^
Thank you! (•ヮ•)ง
