2013 Japan Trip Highlights and Acquisitions!

January 15, 2014

DSC01263

In a brilliant attempt to circumvent me running out of steam doing a day-by-day recount of my trip, this time, I’ll be writing just one post featuring only the juicy bits – Akihabara, Comiket (doujins) and more!

I’ll organize this post by sections that go in chronological order. At the end of the recount, will be a section that is dedicated to all the acquisitions that I got during my trip.

Without further ado, here we go!

(Warning! Image intensive and somewhat NSFW. Also, the changing aspect ratio of the pictures is due to the fact that a number of them were taken with different cameras.)

The ‘Definitive’ Figure and How I Collect

July 7, 2011

You might have noticed that I have not been buying as many Completed PVC figures as I have been in the past. I myself have recently caught wind of this trend and have been wondering why. After some thought, I narrowed it down to a few reasons. In doing so, I managed to create a system explaining how I collect and decide which figure representation of a character I should buy.

OMG! Time sure flies. Within a blink of an eye, it has already been almost a month since I’ve posted something on this blog! Anyways, the reason that I’ve been away for so long is because of my finals, which just ended this past week (as stated on my Youtube Channel). Now that it is three months of freedom, it’s time to crank up the dial to 11 and get some posts, reviews and Anime watching done!!! First off, let’s start off with the stuff that I’ve acquired over these past two months. Basically, these things are the stuff that I’ve refrained from opening till summer break and now’s the time to indulge!!!

Transforming Getter Robo Paper ‘Doll’

February 16, 2011

I have a confession to make. Sometimes, when I should be studying, I make stuff out of paper card. What do I mean? Well, some of the ‘projects’ that I were more proud of were my transforming paper Transformers. There were basically something like a 2D Optimus Prime that when folded, would yield a 3D truck. In short, I love looking and analyzing the transformation process of robots and recreating it with paper.

So anyways, awhile back, around September 09, I was fuming over how there weren’t any ‘perfect change/transforming’ Getter Robo figures that didn’t cost a billion dollars (because Getter Robo is one of my all time favorite Super Robots). It was then I decided to make one for myself… out of paper.

And now, I’m sharing the fruits of my labor with you guys. (^.^)
