Today we have another big arrival… it’s like Christmas in the middle of summer, lol! o(*>ω<*)o Originally these three figures weren’t going to be released in the same month but two of them got delayed and… a big bill for May for mizy, ahahah. (( ´∀`;)) I’m totally broke after paying for their customs fees now BUT IT’S OKAY! Pretty figures!!! (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Yeap, today’s arrivals are Alter’s three Odin Sphere figures and a nendoroid Link. I guess it’s fitting that all the OS figures were released in the same month since they’re from the same game, but… I wish Alter would’ve been kinder to my wallet, lol! (*≧▽≦)ﾉｼ)) Oh well, at least I get more pretty things onto my shelves~ … although, I’m not entirely sure where I’ll manage to fit these, whoops– Σ(`･Д･ﾉ)ﾉ
Getting this box home from the PO was a bit of an adventure… it was really big. Really big. And weighed over 4 kilos. (･∀･；) I was afraid I might not be able to transport it home on my bike due to the size and shape, so I first looked into going to the PO by bus… only, they have summer schedules now and the bus that I use to go to the PO during winter doesn’t run at all during summer. So that was a no-go. (￣◇￣;) I had to ride my bicycle to the PO and hope for the best. At first I had trouble getting the package to stay on, but eventually I managed to tie it securely. And I also rode my bicycle home like a pro even though I couldn’t properly sit on the saddle, lol. (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧ I thought I’d have to walk the bicycle home, but well… no need for that, after all.
Anyway, let’s open the box~ ヾ(≧∪≦*)ノ〃
Ren next to the box to show the scale. It was BIG! (๑º ﾛ º๑) I tested and I could fit inside the box if I curled into a ball, lol~ (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖
Yay, a pretty spring card~ ヽ(´∇｀)ﾉ
So lovely~! *。ヾ(｡>ｖ<｡)ﾉﾞ*。
Lots of figure boxes! ₍₍ ◝(●˙꒳˙●)◜ ₎₎
Huhuhu, the black boxes are so cool~（๑✧∀✧๑）Poor Link is a bit out of place, lol!
And backsides… I was too lazy to photograph each box individually ’cause there were so many of them, lol. (◍>ᗜ<◍)ﾉ”
Started with Link ’cause he was the smallest… I don’t really care that much for nendos but I seem to be on a mission to collect all the Links. ヾ(ﾟдﾟ)ﾉﾞ
Although, I pretty much ONLY ordered this nendo because they included the bunny mask! Too cute! (ෆˊ͈ ु꒳ ूˋ͈ෆ)♥ Friggin’ Majora’s Mask still creeps me out to this day…
Well, Link looks pretty adorable anyway~ ♡＾▽＾♡ I hate that shield, though, if I move it even a little, it falls off. I hate how nendos fall apart so easily… (ーー;)
The Majora’s mask is handy for storing the rest of Link’s stuff, at least! Lol~ (｡ >艸<)
But let’s move onto the fancy stuff: here’s Gwendolyn out of her box!（*’∀’人）♥
So pretty~ ♥ Although, personally I’d prefer a more neutral expression for her… would be more true to her character than this smile, I think. ｢(ﾟﾍﾟ)
Backlight photo to demonstrate the translucency of the wings.
I like her pose a lot and the details are lovely~ ♥ She’s gonna take up lots of space on my shelf, though… (^～^;)ゞ
Close up. The face is pretty, but the expression is a bit off…（・∩・）
A slightly different angle.
I love the painting on her armour parts~ Pretty and blueee~!（*´▽｀*）♥
I can’t photograph her from behind without feeling like a massive pervert… her skirt is ridiculously short, so it’s pantsu shot galore!!!（；¬＿¬) Only from a high angle like this it’s relatively safe to take a photo, ahah… low angles are a definite no.
Next are Cornelius and Velvet~
Cornelius is cute in his Pooka form~ ♥ But I dislike how he’s voiced by Namikawa Daisuke in the game, grrr… (¬､¬)
And Velvet… boy oh boy. (¬д¬。) She’s almost impossible to photograph because of her bare ass and those pointy nipples. This is definitely an otaku’s wet daydream figure.ヽ(￣д￣;)ノ I mean, I get that you’d wanna make a sexy figure and I like sexy women as much as the next person, but… leave something for the imagination? Sometimes less is more. Or, well, most of the time really… (；￢_￢)
From most angles Cornelius doesn’t look too good… it feels like he was just an afterthought, poor thing. ( ´△｀)
But omg, from this angle it’s like he’s saying “Don’t stare at Velvet’s ass!!!” ｡ﾟ(TヮT)ﾟ｡
“I mean it! Stay away!!” Must be a turnoff for the pervy otakus, lol~ ٩̋(๑>ꇴ<๑)
See what I mean? Impossible to photograph this woman… (；´д｀)ゞ
Freakin’ nipples lol… I feel like there’s something a bit off about Velvet’s face too. (o ｡_｡)o
And finally, Mercedes! ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡
Her base is sooo pretty~ ♡ฅ(ᐤˊ꒳ฅˋᐤ♪)
Mercedes’ lil’ froggy friend is so cute, too! (´∀｀)♡
I was admiring the base and then I was like… it’s as if there are two pairs of eyes looking at me. (*OчO*) Must investigate!
The base opens and there’s a cute TADPOLE!!! (♡´❍`♡)*✧ ✰ ｡* Omg, how come I never knew this until now?! (੭ु˙꒳˙)੭ु⁾⁾
Such a cuuuute baby! (੭ु >ω< )੭ु⁾⁾♡
I think that out of these three, Mercedes is the best as a whole and looks the most true to her character. (人´ω｀*)♡
She’s so cute~ (*´ ˘ `*).｡oO ( ♡ ) Too bad that I don’t care about her much as a character, she’s kind of annoying lol… especially since she’s voiced by Noto Mamiko and she uses her whiny little girl voice that drives me nuts… ヽ(￣д￣;)ノ
Thankfully due to Mercedes’ outfit, they couldn’t sculpt panties for her! So I can photograph her from all angles, yay! ( •̀ᄇ• ́)ﻭ✧ Well, those are some super short bloomers but at least there is no mini-mini-micro skirt and panties.
I love her wings, they’re like stained glass. So pretty~ (´ ▽｀).。ｏ♡
The ladies + pooka together on top of the showcase~ ♥
Now I just wish Altair would realise to make Oswald to complete the OS protagonists group! ( ˘͈ ᵕ ˘͈♡)˚๐*˟ ♡ Oswald figure would be SO EPIC! (๑˃>ᴗ˂<)و But we’ll see… very few male characters get figures. Unless they’re Orihara Izaya (Drrr!!) or from some idol or other reverse-harem anime, lol.（−＿−；）I WANT COOL DUDES AS FIGURES THANKS!ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ Although, my bank account probably couldn’t handle buying more figures… but Yenna would probably buy Oswald so we could have a complete collection together then, lol~ (♡´艸`)
I can’t wait to take these pretties out for photos!! (o´ω`o)♡*✲ﾟ*｡
