..and accidentally sat on Smol Link’s box later. This month’s been horrible luck-wise. Like Steph’s box’s side looking like a chainsaw went through it..

Here’s almost everything I got the past half year. Can’t wait to actually open & display them once the roof’s done.
Zoom-in’s after the break.

Almost a year later and the roof’s still not repaired…..
This was supposed to be fixed by April at latest!

After inquiring, the bank and mortgage are arguing with each other. It’s similar to that you have to earn 3x the money of what you pay rent for or something.
Well we’re soon getting news finally about whether we get the cash (and hopefully we do) and then (I heard) the repairs can start asap.

General Figure Comics briefly returns with the 3DS Woes Trilogy and Kyon’s quest to save Haruhi.
Maybe Reycal vs Saber too.

The last two are shorts that I had posted on figure.fm, but since that site’s as dead as a fish without water now, and I never uploaded them here… Might as well!
The 3DS ones are new and self-suffering, but it gave me the opportunity to finally check if chroma-keying is a valid method with my current setup.

It was not. Need moar lights.

Schedule:
Sat-Mo: 3DS, Tue Wed: Kenshiro & Kyon, Th: Reycal.
Maybe I can fill Friday with something too, gotta dig deep in that archive.

Archive; September 2012

About 5 years ago I already started to run out of display space, so boxes started piling up.
Today, I brought them all out! ..except a few Gundam Kits because they’re all the way in the back on my closet and they’re a pain to reach..
FYI, they’re Master Gundam w/ Fuunsaiki and Gundam Portent.. Portant.. Shia’s Gundam!
SHF Bulma missed the shot, because Airmail from Matsuyama is apparently 3x slower than from Tokyo.

Picture taken from Futaba, I think.

On a financial level (and sometimes the fandom too, but that’s another story).
Collecting Japanese figures has gotten pretty expensive since I started ~10 years ago.
Now I’ll admit I can be quite stingy with money/be a cheapskate, but the examples below show that the prices are just getting silly in comparison to what they used to be and what you got for it.
So let’s go back a little, when yen prices were lower and the exchange rate was €1 = ¥170
