Guys, toys are awesome. In an effort to both reveal my secrets to you and become a bit more of community member here, I'd like to talk about and share stuff about things I like. I like toys.
No, not dragon dildos.
For realzies, I love toys. I collect them, learn as much about them (even the ones I don't even want). Last summer, I realized that I really really wanted toys. So in October, I started collecting gunpla. I have about 13 now, I think. Maybe 14. Gunpla buying slowed down so I could let a few Lego sets slip in, and now I have eight (new) Lego sets displayed. I still have tons of old Lego, but I just thought I'd try collecting some new. And then I bought a Dissidia Play Arts Gabranth. Ten inches of unnghhyes. And then I bought my first Transformer since I was 12 or so, I got Soundwave from the Transformers Prime line.
And right now I'm looking into some Kingdom Hearts Play Arts.
Seriously, though, I don't particularly care what kind of toys people collect. I don't collect those figures, if someone else wants them, let them buy 'em. I prefer things with lots of articulation and preferably more than two accessories.
I just connected the dot that tells me you're a woman that likes to collect PVC figures of lovely ladies. I feel a tad slow.
Anyway, there are several Play Arts like that. They actually get a really nice range of motion, superb even, for their price and size. A few, not so much. Dissidia Gabranth needs to be worked and fidgeted a bit due to his armor, but it's worth it. He even hides the weird joints pretty well. Really, it's just elbows and knees on them that's super wonky looking, but most of the ones I'd be interested in getting have a sculpt that hides it well.
I actually don't have any Figma. There just aren't any characters I want, most look like generic anime girls to me seeing as I don't know the source material. Though I know S.H. Figuarts have some really nice articulation, I want to pick up that SSJ2 Son Gohan sometime. Maybe a few Sentai as well.
Articulation just means a lot to me, simply because I still play with my figures and toys from time to time. Once a week or so, I go through all my toys and change their pose, sometimes I'll swap collections to other shelves and stuff. It just keeps my room interesting, and helps me from buying so many toys I spend all of my money,
Stuffed animals are pretty cool, yeah. I get super picky about them though. I can't stand any that are stuffed to the point where I can't really move it. I actually have this tiger, best thing ever, have had him for ten years maybe? I think it'll be a good thing to give whatever first child I may have.
I made my first figure purchase a couple of weeks ago and they arrived on Monday. Erio and BRS Nendoroids. I'm worried that it's going to lead to more. Already preordered an Inori nendo. Slippery slope.
The shipping is going to bleed me dry. I don't know if I could take the plunge and progress from nendos to proper figures. Nendos feel more acceptable to normalfags. That penguin drum one is damn nice though.
I'd say some of the nicest I've seen are the BRS ones though. also this one. Dat detail. It's even perfectly weighted so it can stand without a base. Could never get it though. Too lewd to avoid judgement.
Square's gone and put up the listing for the next set of Kingdom Hearts Formation arts. They're only available as a full group, and on Square's store they're listed for Y6,000 (roughly 75 U.S. Dollars). I kind of really want them. Included for this wave is Roxas, Pride Lands (Sora, Donald, Goofy), Sora Master Ver., Axel, and Twilight Thorn.
The only one I can't stand is Pride Lands. I love these, so much, they look so much better than the older FA (most of them had a derp look on their face).
These are made of PVC plastic, and they're randomly assorted in a case of 6. So it's possible to get them all and plus one in a single purchase. So, 75 bucks for 6 statues. $12.50 a pop before shipping, and honestly I'd be willing to pay up to $20 each if I was guaranteed the statue I'd get. So I think this is a pretty good deal.
