From the picture above we have:

– Revoltech YF-21
– Revoltech Miniature Eva-01 and Eva-00 Movie Ver.
– Hi-Metal 1/100 VF-19 Kai (Fire Valkyrie)
Macross 7, the series that split the Fandom in two. Let me just state right off the bat, I LOVE Macross 7. TOTSUGEKI LOVE HEART!!! (^O^) Oh boy, what a fun toy. Seriously, this figure is a huge improvement over the parts-monster VF100s VF-25. The first VF-19 Fire Valk since Bandai’s last attempt years back, it is a gorgeous and fun-to-fiddle-around-with figure. I highly recommend this toy.
(YF-21 Hi-Metal announced!!! ARGH!!!)
~ NOW ENTERING EXCLUSIVE TERRITORY ~
I am someone who hates to wait. I can’t even wait 5 minutes for the next bus to arrive and GSC’s telling me that I’ll have to wait till June to get my Figma Ui? No wai!!! Thus, Yahoo! Auctions Japan comes to my rescue! (^o^) You can bet a review is coming soon.
The person that I bought Ui-chan from also included a set of winter accessories and a Figma Guidebook (gotten at Wonderfest, presumably.). Awesome!
Next up, Nanoha MOVIE PREMIUMS!!!
Remember how I said I was distraught that I couldn’t see the Nanoha movie in a previous article? Well, to console myself, I spent a shit ton of cash to get myself a piece of the history.
First up, a set of Replica Ribbons! These were the first things that caught my eye from the Nanoha Movie Premier reports. Basically, each set contains a pair of ribbons, Nanoha’s White Ribbons in the Pink Packet and Fate’s Black Ribbons in the Yellow Packet.
If you know me well, you would know that I love replicas. These ribbons were must-gets for me because the final scene of the first season and the Movie, where Fate and Nanoha exchanged ribbons, was a very pivotal scene and one of my favorite scenes from the Anime. The ribbons were symbolic of their friendship and these replicas are so meaningful.
…saving the best for last, the pinnacle of the all the loot I have ever gotten so far…
A piece of film cel printing made off of film stock from the movie!!! YES!!! Literally, a piece of history, this is the first ever Animation related item I have ever gotten. Don’t own any Cels (from the Cel-animation era) or anything.
These pieces of film cels were given to those who watched the movie three times and were given out randomly. Seriously, some of these can go for ridiculous prices!!! I mean, they can reach 100,000 yen and above for exceedingly popular scenes (ala Nanoha and Fate embracing).
I managed to snag myself a choice piece, I believe, that shows Fate in motion, swinging Bardiche and ending up in a great pose. The first two frames feature a nice close-up shot as well. As for how much I bidded for this, I’m not saying. (^.^;) Let’s just say I won’t be eating for the next 3 – 4 months…
Well, that’s all for this installment of Actar’s Acquisitions…
More Wonderfest exclusives coming soon… I don’t know whether to be overjoyed or to join the nearest Spendthrifts Anonymous group.
