The other week I received Christmas in Fall (a huge box from UPS…or Fedex one of those companies) and inside contained Saber Lily, Izayoi Sakuya, and Reisen Undongein Inaba. Lets cut to the pics shall we?
A superb fig by Good Smile Company and sculptor Kawahara Takayuki!! I fell in love with this figure when it was first announced for production and I am soooo happy I got it. The figure itself is very majestic and pretty with the frills and bows. It is also “daring” in another sense which I’ll leave to you to find out. The base is very detailed too and I like that a lot as many figures come with very bland bases. But for a fact you only really find decorated bases once you got past the $100 mark as things start getting bigger and start looking like they popped out of a scene. She can stand on her own without the base if some of you like buuttt I wouldn’t risk it. The swappable accessories are nice, though the bigger Excalibur requires a tiny bit of force to get into the grip. Another wonderful addition to my collection, except that I keep it at my desk to stare at rather than in my DETOLF case haha.
Lets move on to the next one Izayoi Sakuya.
A very solid figure by Griffon Enterprises who is doing all of the Touhou PVC figures. Nothing to be blown away by (although I WAS spoiled by opening Saber Lily first) but a very clean and solid figure. Her face kinda reminds me of a Cabbage Patch Kids or something face, but it looks good on her overall. The knives are removable and pretty cool to throw at your friends. There is a surprise in the form of up skirting the figure to find out Sakuya has…DAT ASS. Holy crap it’s huge. You can Google for pictures, I might take one and edit this post.
Time for my last piece of loot: Reisen Undongein Inaba that came with “Inaba and the Ground in the Moon Limited Vol 1” a series of 4 Koma of awesomeness.
Inaba is super small but super cute. She came in a overly large plastic box that was inside an overly large cardboard box that also contained the book. The book is awesome even though I can only read certain Kanjis and hiragana/katakana thus limiting what I can read. Thank goodness for Mangafox which has that and many other great mangas scanlated.
Christmas in Fall indeed. I still cannot stop admiring my Saber Lily. All that’s left for this year is (as mentioned before) the Vocaloid Puchi Nendoroid and Shiki Nendoroid. Saber Lily Nendoroid and I will have pics of that when it gets here, unpacking and all.
