Figma Aya with violin

After a week of entries, we have decided on who will be Aya’s new owner! I’m being really careful not to call this a ‘contest’ because there wasn’t really any criteria we judged on and well, the prize isn’t the greatest thing in the world, it’s a defective figma (although a very cute one with awesome accessories).

Review: Figma 080 Nozomi Akiyama

November 22, 2010 11 comments

Poor Nozomi, I’ve had her for about a month now but have only just managed to get around to reviewing her now! Nozomi is our third girl from the Se.Kirara eroge (we already have Yu Kawamura and Aya Kagura) and I was worried I’d start to tire of the Figma from Se.Kirara considering they all have very similar uniforms and I don’t know anything about the characters themselves at all! I needn’t have worried though, I find Nozomi just as endearing as both Yu and Aya.

Giveaway: Figma 078 Aya Kagura (Closed)

November 18, 2010 27 comments

Figma Aya

Closed – Winner will be announced later on this evening (AEST) in a post by Luthren then contacted for shipping details. Thank you everyone for your entries and good luck!

If you have read my Aya Kagura Figma review here, you’d know that we received our Aya with a few markings across the back of her hair and on her ribbon and also that AmiAmi were kind enough to send us a brand new Aya as a replacement!

Since we don’t have a use for two of the same Figma, we have decided to give the Figma I used in the review away!

We will cover shipping costs (including international) but please keep in mind that if you want insurance and tracking, you’ll have to pay for that yourself. We’ll be using the cheapest shipping method possible (so it’ll probably be slow!) and will not cover any customs costs (if they happen to be charged).

Please keep in mind that the Aya Figma we are giving away is used but apart from her markings, her overall condition is not bad. Please see my review for all the details on her! Aya will come with all of her accessories (the accessories themselves will be in mint condition since we’ll keep the original ones) and her box is in near mint condition.

If you want her, all you have to do is send us an email at plasticparfait[at]gmail[dot]com or leave a comment on this post and tell us why you’d like to have Aya! We’ll announce who gets her in a week or so!

Loot: October 2010

I’ve previously stated that October was going to be a huge month for us in terms of the amount of stuff we had on order but a whole bunch of it ended up being delayed! It still turned out to be a rather busy and expensive month for figures though! Everything but the phone came from the same retailer and arrived in one huge package, I think it was the largest amount of figures we have received at once so far.

Review: Nendoroid Petit Angel Beats! Set 01

November 3, 2010 18 comments

I’m always pleasantly surprised by the quality of these tiny Nendoroids whenever we get a new one of them, their detailing is so good for something so small and inexpensive.. and this set is certainly no exception! The extra parts they come with are fantastic too. I had a good time posing and playing around with this set while I was taking photos for this post. Sadly, I ended up breaking Yuri but it wasn’t anything some good ol’ super glue couldn’t fix! I also managed to put not one but two giant paint marks on poor Yusa’s face.. damnit.
