Made the rather last second decision to go to Anime Central when I found out that the Wo-class nendoroid was being sold. I thought it was a good deal, I live pretty close so the commute isn't bad, and even if I count the price of the ticket/parking it's still less than the aftermarket prices for her.

So I trekked over there at 8am right when registration opened so I could just buy a one day pass to save on costs. Did lots and lots of standing in line. I even waited in this "line" until it opened, but it didn't matter at all because it turned into a stampede right at 10. I bolted right to Good Smile's booth but the line was already insane. But I managed to get there at a decent time so I thought I would be ok. Except for the fact that she sold out in less than 30 minutes.
I was really upset about it, I worked so hard to get there early and deal with the lines everywhere just for it to sell out with me like maybe 10-20 people behind. GCS must either only have had a total of like one box full of them or everyone bought 3...
I already committed pretty hard to that line, it was already 30 minutes in, so I just stuck it out. I decided to buy Re-Class and the Madoka Maiko Nendoroid instead when I got there. On hindsight, I should have bought one of the 2014 Snow Mikus but I got one off Mandarake for like 6000 yen a few weeks back so I guess I have no good reason.

I'm not quite sold on the Re-class. But for being an awful jerk in-game, for some reason she's just rather appealing. I'm just not sure if I want to keep her, but I had to wait so long for that chance to buy so I felt like I had to get something (Madoka was a gift for someone).

I went on to check the exhibits to see if there's anything interesting. Saw a few things but was way too expensive. But then I saw a Wo-class nendoroid just sitting in one of the exhibitor's stands! It had this sticky note for $70. I instantly bought it.
The only bad thing about it was she didn't come with the sleeve, but I wasn't about to just pass that up. I'm glad I didn't, because I did not see a single one after that.

I also found the Touhou Petanko rubber straps I've been looking for as well. I wish there was more Touhou merch in general, I only saw some meh looking griffon figures and a Marisa nendoroid which I already had.


Here's some pictures of the stuff but potato quality:

Anime Cons aren't exactly my thing but I might go again next year.

AndyError5 år siden#3003270Congrats on nabbing a wo-class nendoroid! How do you like the Re-Class? I have that on preorder from GoodSmileCompany online store. I don't play the game, but that figure just looked nice and I was paying for shipping for the snow miku 2015 nendoroid anyway, so I preordered it.

Thank you! To be honest, I have not opened it yet. I wanna make sure I want to keep it before I open it. It looks nice though, and looking at that grin of hers in the box makes me want to keep her. It comes with plenty of accessories and I think GSC captured her personality well. But I can't really comment on the quality since I didn't open it. Box looks nice and the parts seem fine.
I would say wo is better but maybe I'm being biased.

Yuinna5 år siden#3002992Cute loot! Love the straps; they're adorable. <3

Thanks! I really thought they were cute too, I like them much better than the Nendoroid Plus versions I got.

akarin5 år siden#3003008That's really awesome. You still got what you went for in the end :) Those straps are cute. The Madoka Maiko nendo is kinda hard to get at a good price, so that's a good buy too. I wanted to go just to buy Snow Miku 2014 but I'm so short on money atm and after I thought about it I knew that even if I went I wouldn't even manage to get one because Miku is usually the first to go sold out anyway *sigh* How much is admission for 1 day? I heard it's around $45 but then I heard it's $60???

Admission for 1 day (Friday or Saturday) was $40. I think it was $20 on Sunday. $60 is for the full weekend. All the Snow Mikus sold out on the first day, few hours in (2014 then 2015). It was only the nendoroid Shimakaze, Wo-class, and Ryuko that sold out in the first hour or so.
