New Year’s First (Exclusive) Haul

10...

Recently the ratio of Girl to Mecha figures have been 1:10...

With a new year, comes new figures! Above, you’ll see everything I’ve acquired so far within the past month. This time, there are numerous exclusive figures in this set. Will be getting more Geass related exclusives as the year progresses. Let’s go through everything in detail shall we?


First off, we have, and I’m sure this grabbed your eyes at the very start,

- SP-004 Figma Saber Lily

Woah! Double! This is NOT Photoshopped.

Woah! Double! This is NOT Photoshopped.

This exclusive version of the Saber Figma features her sporting a brand new outfit that makes its first appearance in the game she’s bundled with: Fate/Unlimited Codes. Saber Lily has been making headlines everywhere and has been considered as the Ultimate Figma.

Absolutely love the border showing screencaps of the game.

I was actually considering not getting this as I’m not that huge a fan of Saber and I have already acquired the game through ‘other’ means already. However, I was caught in the trap of ‘Limited Edition’ and ‘Only 50,000 pieces’ and caved in.

Saber Lily with a Lily. (^.^;)

The box design is not unlike the Haruhi SP box in the sense that we have the Figma at the back with the game behind the Figma figure. Great stuff.

Top!

Top!

Not sure if I’ll be doing a full review of this figure as I tend to leave any Limited Edition or Exclusive figures in the box. From looking at the figure, I can definitely tell that the details are outstanding.

Moving on, we have the next exclusive:

- In Action!! Offshoot Glasgow Figure

Finally! The first of the exclusive Code Geass In Action!! Offshoot Knightmare Frame figures have arrived! This particular figure is again, the first of a number of other IA!!O figures that will arrive this year.

Yup, got 2 of these as well.

If you are wondering where I got this figure, it is a Tamahii Online Store exclusive and can only be special ordered from their store.

Shrouded in mystery. Nope, that's just tracing paper.

Not planning to remove the paper wrap at the moment… So, here’s some pics of the unwrapped figure taken by someone else:

Gonna sell one soon and will post about it.

Finally, we come to our last exclusive,

- Code Geass Zero’s Mask 1/1 Scale Replica

Watashii wa Zero!

Watashii wa Zero!

EDIT: Review up!

It is what it is. A gorgeous replica that is supposedly a 1/1 scale replica. This particular replica is from the Ichibankuji Premium set of Code Geass exclusive prizes. You can see the entire set of prizes here. The prizes include, among other things,

- Zero Mask
– Emperor Charles Coin Bank
– SD Knightmare figures
– File and Sticker Sheets
– Geass Themed Mugs

and of course, a great figure of C.C. that everyone’s pining for. Since I’m not a C.C. fan at all, I only decided to get the Zero Mask.

img_4580

This replica does have the gimmick where you can fold up the back of the mask like the one in the show, thus adding to its awesomeness. However, whether it can be removed from the stand and worn (around a cat’s head) remains to be seen.

img_4581

The box is immense! Well, it has to be considering the mask itself is 34 cm in height (including the stand).

Other things I got this month include:

- Hyper Fate Collection’s Archer figure.

img_4565

As I mentioned before, Archer is now my favourite Servant from the series, mainly due to his awesomeness and Unlimited Blade Works.

img_4567

Possibly the best figure of Archer as this figure comes with a TON of accessories and the figure itself has a crazy amount of articulation.

img_4492

img_4520

Absolutely love Kanshou and Bakuya, Archer’s twin blades.

- Robot Tamashii Guren Kashoshiki

img_4542

See the latest installment of Actar’s Reviews for my opinions of this figure.

- Figma Shana

img_4563

img_4564

Melonpan eating Tsundere Shana from Shakugan no Shana gets the Figma treatment! She is the second (first being Saber Lily) to come with the new and improved Figma Stand that allows for more poseablility! The box design is made of pure win. Some of you will know that there will be a Black Haired Version released as a Magazine exclusive in March. Yeah… ordered 2 of that too…

- 1/8 Scale Index PVC Figure

img_4583

img_4585

Last but not least, a PVC girl, Index from the recent To Aru Majutsu no Index, finally graces my collection! As mentioned in the title pic, I’ve been a little low on moe~ness with all the mecha shenanigans going on lately. Really tempted to get the Signum Figure, but I still have Figma Hayate to get, followed by so many other things.

BUT I DIGRESS!

img_4587

…and Index looks so great next to Mikoto, whom for some reason I haven’t opened yet…

MIKOTO RULZ!

Just had to say that. Something I like about the figures is that the box design is very similar.

img_4588

Nice touch by Kotobukiya, giving the Magic symbol to Index and the Science symbol to Mikoto.

END.

You don't get any because I ate all of Mikoto's Homemade Cookies.

You don't get any because I ate all of Mikoto's Homemade Cookies.

Seriously, other than the new figures, there isn’t much news to report. Still watching Clannad, Skip Beat! and To Aru. Haven’t started watching any Winter Season shows partly due to:

1. I still have tons of backlog including recent series I’ve put on hold like Jigoku Shoujo Season 3 and Yozakura Quartet.

2. I’m watching completed series like NHK ni Youkoso!, which I’ve just finished and GTO – Great Teacher Onizuka.

Lastly, and the most important reason, I’M FREAKING DYING FROM THE WORKLOAD FROM SCHOOL!!!

  3. ELTboy says:

    That’s a great and expensive haul you got! Quite a fair bit of exlcusives too. Do hope you get the time to review Index. I am still undecided for this figure and add to that she is hard to get now.

  4. Q says:

    Wow that’s a hefty amount of loot to start off the year lol. Still can’t get over the fact that you got 2 Saber Lilys ^^;

    Looking forward to your figma Shana review. Will link it to mine (which was done a while ago) once it’s up.

  5. Oni-kun says:

    hey Actar, you mentioned that you got one of the Lily Saber’s from Japan Yahoo? how’d you manage to get someone to ship it over to you?

  6. konadora says:

    Wow, 2 Saber figmas! I saw them in Japan, but they were too expensive. Had to buy the game too… for a console I didn’t own >__>

    Hope you can wear Zero’s mask. Would be awesome to wear that and go to Orchard Road or something.

  7. Oni-kun says:

    how much were they in Japan?

  8. Shin says:

    Zero’s mask is arguably the best loot there.

  9. lolipedofin says:

    Dude… care to share on how to purchase through yahoo japan?? maybe make an article about it or something…. What level of Japanese needed to use yahoo japan btw??

  10. BangBang! says:

    I hope you do a review for the Lily Saber on your youtube<3

    @lolipedofin,
    You can use a Proxy to help you bid on those items, but with the terrible USD/Yen currency exchange. . .it will be pretty expensive xD

  11. konadora says:

    @oni-kun

    I can’t quite recall, didn’t take notice since it came with a game that I couldn’t play. If only I had a PS2… ;____; Think it was 7500yen or so.

  12. Oni-kun says:

    @konadora:
    tks mate. that still sounds reasonable actually… too bad you didn’t get it. it’s not really about the game coz the figma really costs a lot given it’s ‘rarity’

  13. Actar says:

    @ lolipedofin: Oh, you don’t need a lot of skill at all! Just use a proxy store like my favourite http://www.goodyjapan.com

    @ Oni-kun: I got 2 Saber Lilys from the same seller for only 4000 yen each.

    @ konadora: Well, I have a modded PS2, so I can play all region games. No problems there! :)

  14. Mog says:

    I wonder how you get the money to buy stuffs. Hope your parents aint spoiling you.

  15. balance says:

    You know Actar you should hand over one of those saber lily figma to your good friend balance ;_;

  16. Karasu-kun says:

    So mad that I missed the preorder for Misaka-san. ;_; Love the whole lot! Except for Archer maybe, was never a big fan.

  17. Karasu-kun says:

    Bwahaha, found Misaka right after I commented at a reputable store for like $10 off!

  18. chocopup says:

    do you play with the games that come with exclusive figmas??? theyre in japanese aren’t they?

  19. Otaku_Girl says:

    @actar: since u bought 2 of the same stuff, do u do that w/ the lucky star figmas 2 get the full “classroom effect”?

  20. Xiomara says:
