Show Us Your Swag!

A popular thread over at the Vocaforum (but then those guys & gals are crazy for figure collecting). So. Feel free to share your recent and not-so-recent aquisitions.

A-like so:

My newest arrivals -- Taiga Aisaka in repose (the ONLY time anyone will see her smiling)

... and (just yesterday) Panty and Stocking nendoroids

This one was hard to get.

(And is still causing me trouble even after landing on my doorstep)

The last of my pre-orders (before the hospitalization last April)

Behold! The official mascot of the 2011 Sapporo Winter Festival:
Snow Miku

Spoiler (hover to show)

She comes with several accessories, including a little snowman (with a "hachune" expression on his face). Hmm. Now, where did that snowman go ....

Uh oh! :police:

Looks like Panty's got him cornered. :police:

It was VERY HARD to get. I had to pre-order through HongKong (with a hefty price penalty), worrying that I might get screwed (HK has a reputation). The figure was correct but the retailer had trouble making my perfectly-good credit card work for them.

Price listed there is 8190 yen which would be about $105.
I got it for about $73 plus about $25 for shipping. So even with shipping it was less than that listed yen price. xP

Depends how much you like Lum and how much you like figures. She's definitely a nice size and has decent detail and doesn't feel cheap, though the lightning could be a bit better. I like using figures as drawing aids so they're always useful to me whether they're amazing or not and I just like looking at them. xP
I think it's decent, though probably should be slightly less expensive. The problem with Lum is it's hard to tell detail because there's not much to her wardrobe. The hair and the face is the only part that has much substance and those were done really well on the figure and the rest was done well too, but it's just the typically tiger bikini. Sorry if this is a bit rambly and not helpful at all. ror (ror = Engrish lol)

Friday: Place orders with Mandarake for items at their Shibuya and GrandchaosOsaka stores.
Saturday morning: Shibuya replies: order confirmation. No word from Osaka
Score: Shibuya 1, Osaka 0
Saturday morning: I pay Shibuya through Paypal. Silence from Osaka.
Score: Shibuya 2, Osaka 0
Shibuya acknowledges payment, Osaka sleeps.
Score: Shibuya 3, Osaka 0
Sunday morning; Shibuya sends shipment notification. Where's WaldOsaka?
Score: Shibuya 4, Osaka 0
Monday morning: Grandchaos Osaka posts its confirmation
... as if just arriving at the futbol arena and bursting onto the field ...
... "We're Here! Let's Play Some ... waitwhat?"
... and are greeted with the sound of cicadas (miiin miiiiiin miiiiiin zuu zuu zuuu) ....
... echoing across the dark empty stadium.
Final Score: Shibuya 4, Osaka 1

Just a couple things I picked up while in Japan.


Vol 2-15 of the Urusei Yatsura reprint and a 1985 Shounen Sunday with Urusei Yatsura on the cover.
I love Japan xD

(Yes, that's me. Man, these things are huge! I'm 171 cm tall and it's almost as long as me!)

... which I intend to use to make a shirt to wear at anime con's (positioned like so):

Finally.

This Nendoroid is probably the most sought-after Nendo' ever produced. She has sold-out in 5 production runs. When announced that she would be part of the "Cheerful Japan" charity set (her 6th production run), she sold over 74,000 copies (bringing about $925,000 in donations to aid the Eastern Japan earthquake&tsunami relief effort).

Ordering this Nendo' would serve 2 functions: she would be the cornerstone of my Nendoroid collection and 33% of the purchase price would go to a truly Good Cause. Unfortunately I was in hospital when ordering was going on so I missed out once again.

Luckily many collectors bought more than one with the idea of selling the extras. Oh Thank Heavens. Which is how I was able to purchase her.

So ... after 6 months, I celebrate paying off all my medical bills (oh yes!) with the acquisition of ... the Hatsune Miku Support Version Nendoroid!


wow! what an ugly background!

Well, I've acquired quite a bit of awesome stuff since I've been here but I'll only post the Urusei Yatsura related stuff (and other Rumiko manga).
Spoiler: long post (hover to show)

That's about it for now xP. I've gotten a ton of gaming stuff and dvds and blu-rays as well, but I'm not sure if you guys are interested in that stuff since it's not Urusei Yatsura related.

Well, I did intend this to be an all-inclusive collection thread (as there is a UY-swag-specific thread elsewhere ... I think).

Also, it's been my experience with another show-us-your-swag thread (over on the Vocaforum) that everyone enjoys all kinds of swag and it doesn't have to JUST be about the series mentioned in the forum title (in their case, Vocaloid).

Hmmm just how much stuffs have you been acquiring, Swizz'? If it's a large folder of photos (like on Imageshack, just for example, not like I right-clicked on a picture and selected properties to see where you were hosting them .... ::)) why not post a link to the album instead of posting the photos here?

Yes, me & my swag  ;D  .... Speaking of which ....  >:D

I ain't superstitious, but a BLACK CAT just crossed my path ...:



From Ore no Imouto, it's the ever-brooding gothic-fantasy-loving fangirl Kuroneko! Seen here in a pose from the Comiket episode.

I like to have one figure from each series that I've enjoyed (and collected the DVD's), but hadn't seen one from OreImo that satisfied. Stumbled onto this one just in time: she'd going sold-out at most retailers right now. An excellent pose and sculpt by Kotobukiya.
