Final Acquisition of 2010

December 31, 2010

As the year of 2010 comes to a close, I take a look back. 2010 was really an awesome year for me on many levels, in both my personal and hobby-related life. To end of the year, here we have my final loot, which consists of some things which I’m been eying for for quite sometime:

– Bandai’s Cardcaptor Sakura Clow Staff X 2
– Azone’s 1/6 scale Haruhi Doll
– Azone’s 1/6 scale Mikuru Combat Waitress Doll
– The Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi Limited First Edition Blu-Ray Set Rakuten Books Ver (+ Replica Yuki Bookmark Set)
– The Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi Ichiban Kuji Set E (Episode 00 Stationary Set + 2 Muffler Towels)

CDP: Misaka Mikoto Onee~sama

December 1, 2010

Well, stock image from Hobby Search due to me forgetting to take a picture of Mikoto before swapping bodies. (^.^;)

Nowadays, Azone’s 1/6 scale dolls utilize the Pure Neemo doll bodies. They look nice, but are horrendously lacking in the articulation department. Let’s just count the points of articulation that Pure Neemos offer.

1 – Neck, 2 – Shoulders, 2 – Upper Arms, 2 – Elbows, 2 – Wrists, 1 – Waist, 2 – Legs, 2 – Thigh, 2 – Knees, 2 – Feet

Altogether, that’s only 18 points of articulation. Not to mention, they are all cut joints that look good, but only offer a single direction of movement. While they could get away with this with non-action girls like the cast of K-On!, having Mikoto restrained to such a limited range of poseablility is a no-no.

A House for my Daughter

December 1, 2010

Well, there’s the phrase “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”. Here, my new version of this phrase is “Magical Girls who live in acrylic cases shouldn’t wield gigantic magical intelligent axes”.

Anyways, joking aside, I have finally completed my doll case for Feito~chan. The base and stand comes from the set recommended to me by SleeplessOtaku. However, I didn’t really like the flimsy plastic case and decided to get one custom made. Thanks to my friend for getting this done for me within a week. (^.^) Nice huh?

Also, I spent quite a bit of time trying to get the cape looking decent. How does it look?
