I can’t believe it already November, and almost December. this month was a pretty strange loot month, over half of it got here before the tenth. Had our Hobby Link box gotten here just a bit early we might’ve had a huge October and itty bitty November. Thankfully that wasn’t the case, and we graced with a promising loot right from the get go.
The first box to get to us was indeed Hobby Link. Every couple of months I just go crazy and clear out my private warehouse, this was one of those months. Thanks to Black Friday I am gonna have to do it again next month. This box was pretty huge. ColonelFancy paid for Rukawa for Tekizen’s birthday which was really cool. The highlights for me were definitely Allen Avadonia and Riliane Lucifen d’Autriche as petit nendos. I can’t get over how cool these are. I was a little surprised with Kirino. This prize figure was better than the last statue I got of her.
This was Tekizen’s loot from Anime Nebraskon. My loot would have been a Happy Kuji Santa Miku, but we had to return her to the dealer, escorted by con staff because she was a bootleg. Oops.
Since I was a little bit let down by that whole Nebraskon mess, and still wanted a new figure, we decided to go to the place that never lets me down. Ground Zero, Dave always has goodies for me. I picked up this Asuka from him. I had been ogling her for awhile, so this seemed like a good time to finally bring her home. I also got these mega cool Dr. Who trading figures. Don’t worry the angels don’t have the phone box.
Early on in the month we received this Sailor Mercury from Hobby Search. Heh. The best thing I can say for this figure is that we got her.
I ordered the kit for this gem from Tokyo Hunter over a year ago, it was just this July that I sent him off to be assembled. He was painted by YetiArt. They did a fantastic job! He is definitely my treasure of the month.
The stuff prior to this we seriously got before the midpoint of the month. I couldn’t believe we hit November with such a running start. These next couple of items were the only ones that came out near the end of the month. These two came from Big in Japan. Sonico is my first cast-off prize figure, and since AmiAmi ruined my chances for Link on his first run I was pretty excited for him too.
The next one that came was Sena’s cow version. She is pretty sexy. We ordered this one from Hobby Search which worked out well, because their shipping prices are great!
The last loot of the month was from Big in Japan and almost made it into December. Tekizen was really excited about these two, because she loves Batou. I gotta admit it is pretty cool, but I think the Major looks a bit funny.
That’s it for November. I dare say it was a pretty good month. One more to go before the end of the year. We actually hit 250 pieces of loot so far this year. I wonder where we will end up? See you guys next month, and don’t forget to check out our bests and worsts of 2013 at the end of December!
