End of January Acquisitions

January 30, 2011

Anime merchandise acquisition update once again as the beginning of February looms near.

– Spirit Evolving EmperorGreymon
– Yamato’s Valkyrie Display Stand
– Max Factory’s 1/8 Scale Asahina Mikuru MIKURU BEAMMMMMMMMMMMM Ver.

– Macross Plus Movie Edition Artbook
– Bamboo Blade Artbook

Let’s see… Regarding EmperorGreymon/KaiserGreymon currently, due to a sudden bout of serious nostalgia, I’m on a quest to complete my (Japanese) Digimon figure collection. Still have quite a number to go, and I’m financially DRAINED.

I finally bought that Mikuru figure by Max Factory that has been on my To Get list since 2008.

Got that stand to display my YF-19 alongside my YF-21:

Lastly, bought a couple of artbooks as well. For Anime that I love, I try to get the artbooks as well for the character designs/bios and episode guides. In particular, I think that the Macross Plus artbook is simply brilliant. For a huge fan of the OVAs and Movie like me, the artwork of all the mecha, characters and sets is simply phenomenal to look at.
