May-June 2019 Loot! (Image and cat heavy)May-June 2019 Loot! (Image and cat heavy)Loot

You know when you budget carefully, and then companies decide to ignore that by just releasing everything you've ordered at once?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260367.jpeg
Cat for scale.

... Yeah.

On the other hand, it's been a long while since I've had enough items arrive to deserve a loot post. This is going to be very image heavy, and as a forewarning these pictures were taken with my phone camera, so they're not the best quality.

Let's begin!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260368.jpeg
AmiAmi postcard! I was too eager to get to the contents of the box to try to take a better pic, ha.

First layer...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260369.jpeg
I like big boxes and I cannot lie.

The reason the box was so big: Myethos' White Rabbit! Pinkie Pie (ITEM #675659) was for a friend of a friend, so I'm afraid that will be the last we'll see of her in this post. I'll get you another time, Pinkie!

Second layer removed and-

Sigh.

Everything out of the box:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260375.jpeg
Sorry, wallet-san.

We have: Nendoroid Harry Potter ITEM #729413, Nendoroid Ron Weasley ITEM #729417, Myethos' White Rabbit (not in database), Re-Ment's Kirby Terrarium Collection Deluxe Memories ENTRY #170815, and Nendoroid Simon ITEM #729700. Let's take a closer look!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260374.jpeg
"This hobby is just a reason to give me boxes, right? Very kind of you!"

Starting with She Who Was Delayed, Myethos' White Rabbit! Originally scheduled for Oct 2018, released May 2019. I understand that the delay was because Myethos was unhappy with the original cast, but man, that is still one heck of a delay.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260371.jpeg
"Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!"

Myethos do go for such big boxes. I like that this one had a window, so you could see the figure - Alice didn't have such a thing.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260377.jpeg
A White Rabbit with pink eyes!

However, as before with Alice and Queen of Hearts: you get a postcard of Ask's artwork with your purchase! I love extras like that.


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260392.jpeg
"Oh my dear paws! Oh my fur and whiskers!"

I know that some people where a bit disappointed in White Rabbit's face, but I'm not - I like her little :o of surprise, and the pinkness of her eyes. I would like to thank Myethos for catering to me specifically with this -Another- line.

Here's White Rabbit with her girlfriends fellow Myethos girls, Queen of Hearts and Alice:

In a Wonderland they lie...

It is annoying that White Rabbit is bigger than Alice and Queen of Hearts, despite being advertised as the same scale, but it's not too noticeable if you put White Rabbit at the back like this.

Now, my updated Alice in Wonderland shelf:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260402.jpeg
Dreaming as the days go by.

My Alice shelf is probably my favourite display. Now just to, uh, work out how I'll re-arrange it when Myethos release their Cheshire-Cat...

Next up chronologically, had the release date been kept to: Simon, of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260376.jpeg https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260384.jpeg
Believe in the you who believes in you!

He's pretty cute! I love the little Boota who comes with him, though getting Boota to balance on Gurren's head is a pain.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260396.jpeg
Bet you'll never guess my favourite TTGL character.

We'll be coming back to Harry and Ron. As it is, something's missing...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260373.jpeg
Only one brain cell between them :(

Before that: Kirby!

I love Kirby. When I was a kid the childminder my sister and I went to had an old SNES with Kirby's Dreamland, and we spent many an afternoon trying to complete it. I love everything about Kirby's aesthetic. Soft. Round. Pink. Hungry.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260372.jpeg
I got the first Kirby Re-ment terrarium set last year as a birthday present from NECROID_NEKO, and it was very kind of her to get me the second set for my birthday this year! The designs of each set are a little different. I'm glad that this new set fixed my main problem with the first: namely, the first set? No pegs. I had to secure everything in place with blu-tack to stop the terrarium interiors from falling every time I accidentally nudged one. This second set has pegs and setting them up was so much easier.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260385.jpeg
ITEM #670067 and ITEM #806852

I think I prefer the bottle design of the second set, overall. The shape's more pleasing.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260386.jpeg https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260387.jpeg https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260388.jpeg https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260389.jpeg https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260390.jpeg
Poyo!

My favourites are definitely warp star and swimming Kirby. I love how they're done: the corks have a tiny hook, and Kirby dangles from them on a piece of clear-ish plastic. I love Re-ment. Tiny things!

So, this is how my Kirby shelves look now:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260397.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260399.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260400.jpeg
Pink. Puffy. Adorable!

I need to fashion some kind of risers to better view the terrariums and Twinkle Dollies at the back, but seeing as these are normally looked at from above I'm pretty happy with the set up!

My next figure purchase was an unexpected one. Aforementioned friend Neko bought both figures of Clear Card Sakura in her pink outfit, ITEM #721701 and ITEM #634008, to compare them (article here! BLOG #43077) before she decided which to keep. As my luck would have it, she opted to keep the Sega, and I had already been wanting to buy the Taito, so got it off her for a good price!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260378.jpeg
Speaking of pink and cute...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260393.jpeg
Most of the contents of the CCS cabinet is Neko's. I'll need to get her to share pictures of it sometime!

Taito Sakura's stars on her base are ridiculously delicate. Neko broke one of the stars' pegs while setting her up, so do be careful with yours! I've used blu-tack, the wonder substance, as a fix.

A different friend of mine alerted me to the next items, as someone was selling them very reasonably priced in the UK. I'm a pretty big CLAMP fan - Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE was a big part of my teenage years - and so was very happy to get a chance to purchase these!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260403.jpeg
They are CLAMP: North Side ITEM #45464, and CLAMP: South Side ITEM #45465. They cover art from some of my favourite periods of CLAMP. I like their post-TRC and xxxHoLiC style, but I'll always have a fondness for their 90s/00s stuff. These are the Japanese books, not the English ones translated by Tokyopop, but most of the content is beautiful pictures anyway so that doesn't really matter to me!

I was most excited to see that South side contains art of my very favourite CLAMP girl...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260404.jpeg
You've probably guessed by now that I really like Alice in Wonderland.

Miyuki-chan! I think I'm probably the world's only Miyuki-chan stan? I love her. I own all current available figures of her. I'd buy a scale of her. I'd buy a dakimakura of her. I love her so much.

(Side note: the British Museum Manga Exhibition has a giant cardboard stand of this image greeting you as you enter. It's juxtaposed by a cardboard stand of Alice, as illustrated by Tenniel for the book. I spent a good few minutes just staring up at this picture and squealing, "My girl! Miyuki-chan! My girl!!" 10/10 amazing exhibition, do go if you get the chance, see giant Miyuki!)

CLAMP is well-known for beautiful men, but they do have their fair share of beautiful women too...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260405.jpeg
Should this be behind a NSFW cut?

CLAMP: North Side contains art used to promote the music video CLAMP in Wonderland (and even some fanart of Jotaro Joestar, to hearken back to CLAMP's days as a doujinshi circle!) I'd seen this crossover art around the web before, but never known where it actually came from. So, here's some of CLAMP's sweeter, softer art!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260406.jpeg
These images depict the last time Kamui had a good day.

I was going to make this loot post after the arrival of these books, but then June's AmiAmi package shipped, so I decided to wait. It mostly contained more CCS stuff for Neko, but did have one item for me...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260379.jpeg
At last!

My cat decided that this is his favourite figure. He rubbed his face all over her box, and then all over Hermione's stand too. Human-bought, cat-approved, I guess?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260381.jpeg
Thanks.

My Golden Trio is complete!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260382.jpeg
"Have you tried Ron magic?"

"I'm Harry Potter! School is for losers!"

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260391.jpeg
"Heeeeeermione!"

I'm not as into Harry Potter nowadays (thanks JKR) but I couldn't resist getting these three. The fact that they come with their pets sealed the deal. I would have liked Ron to have more than two faceplates, so that his expressions could be beyond c: and :U, but he does have Scabbers, and is really cute. I love Ron.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/20/2260398.jpeg
Back to witches and wizards and magical beasts!

I will probably get Draco, but after that I should be safe from buying more of the HP Nendoroids. Unless they make Neville Longbottom. Or Luna Lovegood. Or Hagrid. Or Colin Creevey. Or Sirius and Lupin. Or-

... Hrm.

Thank you for making it to the end of this loot post! It was a long one! I only have a handful of other things on pre-order from now on - unless, of course, all of those get released in the same month due to delays too.

Thank you for reading! <3

Wario541 år siden#64147246Wow, love your Alice shelf! The trio looks sooo good together despite the scale issues. And yes, Nia is the best. Also nice to see your cat appreciates Hermione, the one wizard with a cat haha. I don't like the direction HP has taken but let's be real, I'd buy Nendos of any of those characters you mentioned lol. Great loot!!

Thank you so much! I'm really looking forward to Cheshire Cat's prototype - just hope that she isn't a bigger size again, lol. I do think Myethos' bases and posing help to draw attention away from Rabbit being bigger than Alice, in a way that wouldn't happen if they were all, say, standing around on a flat surface.

Love for the Harry Potter franchise may be fleeting but love for Neville Longbottom is forever

Thank you! The first two (long hair) are Neko and her husband's, and the last of the three (short haired goblin) is mine and my wife's, but we all live together happily! And all three cats like to Be Involved. (Had to delete a lot of photobombing cat pics...)
