Oh.. I mean, looks just like you XD lol~ well, at least I know that’s how I felt like once after I pulled an (almost) all-nighter 2 consecutive days for a major project. When my head finally hit the pillow, random folks/friends who usually wouldn’t call me at that time of the day, rang my mobile phone one after another, So… zzZzz 15 minutes… Riiiing!!! =_= yakyak… bye… ZzzZz 25 minutes… Riiiing!!! *_* (repeats again) *&*@^%%$#@%!!! xD
I only shot photos of limited edition / overseas event exclusive items on sale/display and some random figures I find interesting at the recent Anime Festival Asia 2008, Singapore on 23 November 2008. I didn’t go crazy like the first time I attended a convention like this, so I didn’t shoot everything on sight. (Toy and Comic Convention 2008 was my first ^^) No wonder my batteries lasted this time round even though it was a bigger event with more on display :P
If you were a Gundam fan, you would be really happy. There was a human sized Gundam statue, Gundam dioramas on display and limited-edition items on sale.
There were three limited edition Bandai Gunpla on sale. I kinda like the pinkish red Gundam (1/60 GUNDAM EXIA Trans-AM version ~ Limited) and that blue-coloured one (HG 1/44 GUNDAM EXIA Clear Color Version ~ Limited). *sweatdrop* Seriously no idea which series they’re from. I sound so like a random mecha idiot ^^”
They were retailing from around S$70~100 or more each? I forgot to check the prices. But according to my friend, they were a bargain. The pink one was snapped up within 30 mins or so after the doors opened on the first day. And by the second day, the blue one was sold out (I think). I’m not a fan, so I don’t feel the loss.
The grey one on the right is supposedly rare too… only a few left that day but I prefer coloured XD
The figures look better on display and my limited camera skills don’t do them justice ^^”
Next up, transformable Overseas Event Limited Armoured Core Mecha by Kotobukiya. Pretty cool huh ^^ Red! I like. I’m so glad I’m not a mecha fan. The sheer number of collectible figures available is incredible.
Just a while ago, I was saying I prefer colour? But I make an exception for Medicom Toy Real Action Heroes, LIMITED EDITION WHITE CHUN LI! Nobody told me there was something like this planned?!? What a beauty! xD~ But I already pre-ordered the normal blue version at S$180 (early-bird discounted). This knowledge came at a really bad time. Broke already (T_T)
It is limited to 300 pieces only at about the same price (17,640 Yen with tax ) but after currency conversion and shipping/handling charges, I think it will cost me more than S$300 in the end. I will give it a miss *sobs* If you’re interested, head on to this website (Japan only) for exclusive order. Available in January 2009.
Okie, coverage of limited / exclusive items are over so here are two CUTE and HUGE Katekyo Hitman REBORN figures by Organic. XD Another hit series among fangirls that spawned uncountable mountains of BL doujinshis lol~ However, I didn’t have time to watch the anime after the first episode. Speaking of which… I don’t remember seeing any BL items on display (T_T) or did I miss them? Please enlighten me if you were at the event and knew better.
Square Enix‘s Masterpiece Arts Final Fantasy Advent Children Cloud Strife and FFXII Judge Master Gabranth statues. I didn’t see Sephiroth though… :-\
Some random cute items, also by Bandai. A real sushi roll maker (how can I resist ^^), UNAZUKIN fairy and Marionette in a Bottle KINTO.
Jun Planning which is famous for its big head Pullip dolls. Dal Cinnamon Roll (who is not new) and a Punk rock Bishonen Taeyang Arion (13000 Yen w/o tax) who is fortunately only available in January 2009 so that I did not succumb to an impulse buy.
What an unexpectedly long post… phew~ So that’s all folks. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did ^^
