Hi there MFC!! Another month is passing and we got WonFes which brought us new items to add to our wishlists! New figures (nendoroids) to look forward to, right? ;D I'm very excited due to some surprises like Nendoroid Celty (ITEM #287164) and Mako Fight Club version (ITEM #287743) but at the same time I was disappointed as there were no news about a Nendoroid Syaoran >:( I'm crossing my fingers and praying to the gods so we get some news in the next WonFes...dammit GSC give us our Syaoran T_T
Anyways, I'm here again to share my February loot, everything arrived early this month but I was sick and then I got busy with work but finally got time to share my new items.
This loot is full of first times and you'll see why.

Everything's nicely packed :D
Items from AmiAmi
Item from Mandarake
So here's the loot!! (gosh looks so pink and girly when I hate all that lol)
Let's start with the miniatures!
This was my first time ordering Re-Ment miniatures and I decided to go for these 2 sets as they are very traditional (Japanese culture) and keeping in mind that I'd like to have some nendoroids displayed in a traditional miniature japanese room when I get a bookcase or shelf for my collection, dammit
Re-ment miniatures are quite amazing, they are nicely done and have a great quality for being so little plus they work great with nendoroids. I'm quite satisfied with these sets so I know I'll get more sets eventually.

On my previous loot post I talked about Nendoroid Miku Sailor school uniform/spring version B (ITEM #179199) which doesn't come with a piano like her variant version A (ITEM #179197) but this wasn't a huge problem for me as I decided (at the time I ordered her) to get the Sylvanian Families Piano set for Miku :)
As always a great item from Sylvanian Families which works splendidly with nendoroids ^^ Here's Miku of course, to show you how much she loves her new piano!
Isn't she the cutest? >_<
Now moving onto the Twinkle Dolly Sailor Moon! These items are pretty cute and smaller than expected. There are some painting defects here and there but giving the size it's understandable. It comes with 10 individual boxes so if you're lucky, you get the complete set of inner senshi plus chibiusa and comes as well with a candy.
10 boxes so you can get a full set of senshi and get 4 extras
The heart-shaped candy which is like a mint, to be honest I couldn't like it but don't mind me, I'm very picky regarding candies cos I'm in love with dark chocolate only XD It was my mother who ate all of them lol
They looked bigger on screen, but when I got them I was amazed by the size which makes them way cuter <3
I was lucky and got the full set: Sailor Moon, Chibiusa, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus! They're pretty cute so that's why I ordered the second set with the outer senshi ^^
Sailor Moon ITEM #249791
Chibiusa ITEM #249799
Sailor Mercury ITEM #249798
Sailor Mars ITEM #249796
Sailor Jupiter ITEM #249797
Sailor Venus ITEM #249788
I got these as extras so if anybody is interested in purchasing one of them or if you're interested in trading one please PM me I'm looking for an extra Sailor Jupiter for my mother :) also please keep in mind I live in Colombia (South America)
If nobody is interested, the remain items will be used by my mother. She loved the set and she wants to use them as earrings or maybe as necklace charms...and I'm not even lying people>>Ready to use Jupiter as earringHide
Time for some chibis right?
First a little story...
I always read the blogs here cos they teach me about this hobby. I especially pay attention to those related to AmiAmi pre-owned section. To be honest I was very afraid of purchasing a pre-owned item since I didn't want to get a really damaged figure but after reading the blogs here on MFC I decided to visit the section regularly looking for those figures I missed and checking prices but still, I was afraid.
Between those figures that I was looking for, there were the nendoroids of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica girls. I really wanted them and from time to time a Madoka or any other PMMM girl would pop up on the section but since I have to pay attention to my savings (plus saving for upcoming nendoroids), I decided to drop the idea of getting the nendos of Madoka, Homura, Mami, Kyouko and Sayaka ;_; it was sad and hard to take that decision but it was necessary.
THEN, one day I was browsing the pre-owned section of AmiAmi and them BAM! A whole Nendoroid Petit - Puella Magi Madoka Magica set was on sale!! I then hesitated, I thought about it carefully but at the end I said "f*ck it! what if I can't get another chance? Besides, this set comes with ALL THE GIRLS AT ONCE! I don't have to pay for each girl separately and I get a Madokami as bonus!!!".
Oh I pushed that "add to cart" button with all my might and that's how I finally got all the PMMM girls even if they're nendoroid petits I still love them :) I don't care if I don't have a Homucifer, at the end my favourite characters are Kyouko, Mami and Sayaka and I really like Madokami design (I love all the girls in her normal combat attires), yeah sorry I don't like Homura-chan :/ (yes she's a great character but not my favourite ok?).
Great first experiences: first, purchasing from the pre-owned section of AmiAmi and second, getting a set of nendoroid petits.
The box was rated A-/B the main box came sealed, the individual boxes were open but the items were sealed/not touched as well.
They were and are perfect!! ^_^

I really wanted a nendoroid with Kimono but I was struggling between Snow Miku White Kimono (ITEM #107714) and Madoka Maiko version (ITEM #158023) but let's be honest Madoka's kimono is way better thanks to all those colours! Yes, Miku's kimono is beautiful as well but I was looking for a colourful one instead of a plain white (after days of thinking I took the decision lol) plus it's MADOKA for god's sake! (remember I'm not a huge fan of Miku but I did order the snow miku 2015 kill me please)
That's when I went to Mandarake, my very first time ordering from this site (after reading carefully the reviews and blogs). I looked for this version but it was thanks to the item page here on MFC that a user posted the link to the mandarake's item page and there she was, Nendoroid Madoka Kaname - Maiko Version so I managed to get this beautie!! THANKS MFC!!!
Once again, great packaging from Mandarake and the item said something about box damaged...still looking but couldn't find any damage on the box O_o
This pose killed me >_<
Cute pics of MadokaHide
I used the Re-Ments sets here, perfect match!! <3
Now it's time for my first KANMUSU!!
I got into Kancolle last year, I couldn't play the game and to be honest I wasn't insterested in it. What really caught my attention were the kanmusu designs especially Akagi. She was really pretty and I adored the fact she was an "archer" that's why I decided to look further into Kantai Collection. Sadly, at the time I started collecting nendoroids I missed my chance to get Akagi and as I said previously I was really afraid of purchasing a pre-owned item.
You may ask "what about Shimakaze?" well, I don't like her. After I found Akagi I found about Shimakaze too, but I couldn't like her :( She's cute in some way (I like her colours) but I find her design too slutty for my taste, yeah I said it. She's cute but not as to get her nendoroid and I think she's a little bit annoying? I might be wrong sorry.
So now I'm watching the anime, I know it's not like the game but still it makes me happy :) especially when I can see my dear Akagi on screen ;_;
Anyways, between all the kanmusu there were few that really caught my eye (Akagi was first), but one of them was Amatsukaze. I really liked her design, her colours made me think of a fancy sailor in some way and that's why I went and pre-ordered her! My first kanmusu! My dear Nendoroid Amatsukaze (ITEM #235657)
Sadly, as we all know, GSC has been dropping the quality of nendoroids and my Amatsukaze came with some defects :(
Paint bleed around her "belt" but it looks like all Amatsukazes came like this
Poor Rensouhou-kun came broken!! When I opened the blister and checked it I saw this! Another factory problem as I know a lot of people with the same problem >:(
I contacted GSC support and they already sent me the replacement but still this is awful cos it means you have to be super careful while rotating rensouhou-kun so you don't brake his "hands"
Sadly, when I was posing Amatsukaze with Rensouhou-kun, the hand broke completely -_-
She's the best!
Ready to attack the Abyssal fleet!
She got a little bit carried away here lol
"Stop looking you PERV!"
WOw a lot of stuff right? I'm very pleased with this loot! Lots of cute and adorable things, it's hard to choose a favourite item from this loot cos I loved everything lol...hmmm...if I think carefully I have to say the Nendoroid Petit PMMM set, yeap they're the best especially when there's such a story and experience behind it!
Well, that's it. Hope you enjoyed of this post :D
Thanks for reading
Till next time ^^
