The office is currently abuzz with preparations for Halloween. On Friday, kids in costumes will be walking around to get free candy. My staff are busy preparing decorations for the Plants vs Zombies theme that our area will be decorated with. This is also usually the time I break out the halloween-related toys that I have stashed in my office.
Unlike last year where I had all my Nendoroids out on display, this year, I’ve decided to just have these few toys out. I also have all my SIC action figures and a couple of figmas out as well as Psycho Gundam Mk. I but that’s pretty much it for this year. It would have been a pain bringing out ALL the toys from their ziploc bags and then putting them back in after Halloween. Continue Reading

Finally got to pick them up from the store! I’m still reeling from the sad news that my spot, along with several others, for preordering Nendoroid Ritsu got nixed due to inventory reductions. Nevertheless, I will still try to find a way to get that particular Nendoroid to complete the K-On Nendoroid set!
But let’s focus on these two for now.
A lot of K-On fans are either going gaga over Mio or Azusa, the two black-haired musicians of the band. It’s all about this whole moe thing. I couldn’t care less, actually. I found them cute. I bought them. Mio’s basically the person they throw into the fray when it comes to trying out new costumes and singing in front of the large school crowd. That’s why she comes with that calling-for-help-while-in-tears face. Yui, on the other hand, is the often oblivious, comedic character who exhibits spurts of genius. She’s helpless without her friends or her younger sister.
Here they are, finally at the office desk and ready to be opened. Still grieving over the loss of my Nendoroid Ritsu. Continue Reading

So while Yoko and Pixel Maritan were playing around in their sandbag fort, thinking NOTHING could go wrong with the firepower they were packing, the didn’t notice someone sneaking up from behind an upturned Zaku military mug.
At the moment I’m sipping coffee at my desk surrounded by Nendoroids so I figured I’d cook up this scenario since the primary reason I got Pixel Maritan is to be the other half of this gun-rage duo I had pictured in my mind before. As I mentioned before, Yoko is using one of the faces of Nendoroid Kyouka. I’ll have three more gun-wielders in the form of Canaan, Alphard and Ein so my office desk should see more action. For the meantime though, it’s Gloomy livening things up on the desktop.
I recently found a decently-priced 1/8 Kyouka Midarezaki figurine and I’ve already made arrangements to acquire it PRIMARILY for the mini-Kyoukas that come with the figurine. I had passed on an item almost a year ago that I had seriously wanted to own: WonFes Miku. Now, I’m not going to let this other one slide. It’s not an exclusive but it’s quite a rarity now.
So what’s on your purchase/pre-order list right now?
