I don't usually win things, nor do I expect to win things.
However, this last month was apparently my lucky month! Since I started looking at getting Dollfie Dreams more, Rin was one that I had wanted. I absolutely love the Fate Stay series, and Unlimited Blade Works was my absolute favorite. I know most people are partial to Saber, but I am a little more fond of Rin myself.
Anyway, I never expected to get one of my "grail" dolls this soon, but I couldn't be more happy that I have! Please excuse the awful pictures, I don't have photo editing software on this computer.
My only real complaints are that a button fell off of the shirt almost immediately, which is a little disappointing considering how much these clothes and this doll costs. It's nothing that can't be sewn back on, but still it's a hassle that seems like it shouldn't be necessary to deal with.
I was lucky I won this doll from the Japan Volks, because after Yen currency conversion the price was actually much cheaper than had I won from the U.S. Volks store- plus I got my package much sooner!
I love the factory face up, and I'm extremely happy overall. I feel like if I'd gotten the first version of Rin I probably wouldn't be quite as thrilled and would've had to pay more, so I'm extremely glad that Volks decided to do a re-release!
This was by far the most fun *and expensive!* un-boxing I've ever done. If I'd had more patience I would've recorded it, but couldn't take waiting any longer to get the package open.
