News: Website Migration

December 29, 2010 10 comments

Hi! I hope that everyone is still enjoying their holidays!

We’re on Christmas break and have decided to take the time migrate to a new host so we can have some more customization for our blog! It’ll also be nice to not have to worry about using up all our Photobucket bandwidth every month. ^^;

I mostly just want to make this post to let you guys know that some of the newer comments might not make it over to our new blog. Still feel free to make comments on this blog though! We are aiming to have the new site up by the end of the year and have some cool stuff planned.

Thank you very much to all our visitors, commenters and subscribers for all your support and interest so far. Hopefully my next post will be of the new website details!

Because I don’t like to post without photos, have a random photo of Miku that I took a couple of weeks ago! 😀

Review: Nendoroid Petit Angel Beats! Set 02

December 23, 2010 5 comments

I hope everybody is enjoying the holiday season!

Today I’m looking at Good Smile Company’s Angel Beats! Nendoroid Petits Set 02 and while I was very happy with Set 01 (which I reviewed here), I was looking forward to this set just a little more since all 3 characters in the set are favourites of mine from the anime series. Good Smile Company even threw in a little last minute surprise!

Review: Figma 079 Makinami Mari Illustrious

December 14, 2010 15 comments

Mari is a great example of why I love the Figma line and I had so much fun playing around with her while I was taking review shots that I ended up with a lot more than I usually do! She was pretty much a must buy for both of us, being your typical long time Evangelion fans and all but I wasn’t really all that excited about her Figma at first. Mari is a newer character to the franchise and hasn’t had the time to grow on me as much as original cast has but yeeeah, I ended up falling for the Figma as soon as I opened her plastic blister.

Review: Dead Master (Original Version) by Good Smile Company

December 7, 2010 10 comments

It seems like many years ago when I first laid my eyes on the prototype of this figure! It was back when my other half and I were getting into figure collecting and one of the very first figures that I really REALLY wanted. I was actually quite worried about how she’d end up like after hearing many reports of Good Smile Company’s questionable quality control lately and started to think that we’d end up with some deeply flawed monstrosity of a figure while she was shipped out to us! Since I had been looking forward to her and wanting her so much for so long, I would have been disappointed with anything less than a near perfect figure so let’s see how Dead Master holds up agaisnt my almost unreasonable expectations..

Oh, and please click on the photos if you’d like to see them at full scale!

Loot: November 2010

Loot

Finally, some PVC statues.. and in the forms of Dead Master and Black Rock Shooter! We actually received 2 more PVC statues in November but have omitted them from this loot shot since they’re both Christmas presents so you’ll see them in next months post. So yeah.. another expensive month although that’s mostly due to lots of delayed October figures coming out in November.

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!
