When I was originally looking at a certain lot of Pullips, I thought Peter Pan would be the one I liked least of all. I even considered buying the lot and reselling her to partially pay for it- however, lucky for me I didn't have to. :) Brandon bought the lot for me for my birthday.
Anyway, I wouldn't have sold Peter Pan even if I had bought the lot. She's much cuter in person, and far more charming than I expected she'd be. She actually reminds me of Chie from Persona 4, and if I was any good at sewing I'd make Chie's outfit to put on her.
I love "Peter Pan"'s spunk. She's cute and boyish with just enough flare to make it obvious that she is a girl. Please excuse the fact that I don't have her in original clothes in the photo- I did receive all of her original clothing and I will be updating later with pictures of that as well. It's just quite difficult for me to dress my dolls in their original outfits. Haha!
Really I'm super happy with her. Peter Pan is a rather cheap Pullip doll, and I know she often gets used for customs. If you're thinking about buying one and not sure where to start, she may be a great one to start out with!
As always Goodsmile company never fails to amaze when it comes to product quality. Whether it's Figma or Nendoroids, models ect. there is always something great about getting a new figure in the mail!
First of all, lets talk about Daidouji Tomoyo, Sakura's best friend.
Tomoyo is absolutely adorable! Unfortunately I was in quite a hurry when un-boxing them so I didn't really have time to take good pictures or pictures with all of their poses.
Tomoyo comes with many cute faces, an extra set of normal arms (one with camera attached) and another set where she holds her hands together. An extra front hair peace gives you an optional headband- or if you'd rather you can use the interchangeable hat piece to have your Sakura Nendoroid wear her hat!
Speaking of hats- Tomoyo also has a small magnet in her head to hold on her hat, though it is farther back on her head and a little smaller.
All things considered I am very happy with her- however there is one fault I've seen so far. Much like the Flonne Nendoroid she is somewhat difficult to pose due to the spot where the stand is inserted into the body. Her stand sticks into her back behind her hair. I would strongly recommend putting the part that holds the Nendoroid up into her back first, then attaching her to the stand afterwards.
If you have Sakura, Tomoyo is a must have addition to your collection!
Now on to Sakura in Figma form. Figma's are generally good quality but not super poseable. This Figma was an exception. I was shocked not only to see the fancy quality of the box, but also how much she came with. All of the typical Figma goodies were included- however everything is SUPER detailed.
Detailed is always great, but what's better than that? Pose-ability of course! This Sakura is very pose-able, being able to having almost every imaginable joint.
This Figma is extremely good quality. I'd highly recommend her to any Figma collector or Card Captor fan.
Again, sorry I didn't have much time for taking pictures or writing descriptions today! I may do some photo-shoots soon!
A side note- sorry to anyone that read this post before. I was in quite a hurry when I posted it and had several typos and such.
So we went back to Hastings a couple of days ago after I began to feel the need to buy another mystery box. What can I say, blind boxes are pretty addicting!
This time I got Megahouse's Sailor Moon Glitterver. figure. I believe this is series 2, and I got smiling/eyes closed Neptune! There are a total of twelve different figures you can get in this series as well.
My overall impressions- very cute! Good quality- minus the fact that the Neptune I got is missing the paint in the middle of her smile. Overall I'm very happy with her though.
I don't actually have much for Sailor Moon stuff yet, but this is a great start to my collection!
I would definitely recommend picking up some of these if you're a Sailor Moon fan!
If you've ever played Disgaea, you know what a Prinny is! Prinny's are cute, exploding penguins. Would I blow one up though? Never.
This little guy was a gift from my mom. He's actually a more rare plushy, in fact I can't even find another one like him! Unfortunately his tags were cut off by the previous owner, but he's in great condition otherwise!
This little Prinny has a removable bag that can be attached and de-tatched using velcro. The bag also opens and closes, making him perfect for storing little items! Good money hiding place? I think maybe!
Anyway, Prinny is made with soft fabric, hard plastic eyes, and a mixture of different types of stuffing. The body has regular stuffed animal stuffing inside, while the ends of the wings and tail have beads. I believe this is to balance his weight evenly, while allowing some extra pose-ability.
This works great if you want to make your Prinny hold up his wing! Of course, the beads don't make him pose perfectly but a little flexibility is better than none.
He's super cute! If you're a Disgaea fan, I'd definitely recommend picking up a Prinny plush. They go very quickly from the official NISA store website, making your only option really buying second hand or finding it elsewhere.
Please excuse the paint buckets in the background and the messy table/mess! I'm in the process of restoring this table to something cute and new that can be used for taking pictures or doing un-boxings. :)
Today I went to Hastings with my mom, expecting to leave with absolutely nothing. What I wound up with instead was this adorable little chibi figure!
The only flaw I see with this is that the box doesn't clearly state what company it is produced by. Hastings is a little more expensive in general, but you can't beat the fun of finding something at a local store and taking it home in your hand that exact moment.
These weren't in an obvious place at all, in fact we almost walked right by them- until I realized on the end cap was a whole bunch of boxed Sailor Moon Minis, blind boxes, Cardcaptor blind boxes, and other various goodies.
Anyway, as to the quality of the figure- she's pretty much exactly what I expected! I love the fact that I got Sakura in her cat costume, I couldn't have picked one I wanted more.
In all there are twelve different Card Captor minis that can be obtained through these blind boxes. Each one is available in smiling form as well as winking form, with a total of six different bodies/poses.
For those wondering I believe the brand is Megahouse. You can go to their website here.
