My most wished for figure is mine!

My most wished for figure is mine!
31 Aug 2011 00:40:45




It was only about 2 weeks ago that I posted a blog where I told myself that I would not buy any figures. It took me only one day to crack after I found blackmercury and his konata figure cosplay for sale. I messaged him about the shipping cost and he told me it would be ridiculous to ship from Russia all the way here to Australia.

Instead he kindly linked me one for sale on Mandarake and well that's where mine came from! Let me tell you that this figure was the very first figure on my wishlist and when I first found out about this I knew that I had to have it. Being a Wonder Festival exclusive from 2008 I knew it would be selling for high prices for a brand new one so I'm happy I could get my hands on a second hand one at close to a regular figma prices (3000 yen). Also the fact that there were only 5000 ever made adds to the value/awesomeness of this figure.

Well that was just to give you a little background information to my purchase so let's get on to some photos shall we? Please excuse the quality I'm not too good with lighting and other things to get nice photos.

Yea I'm very happy with my purchase. I've been a haruhi fan (haruhist, haru-fag, call me what you like) since I started watching anime and Lucky star was awesome.

The overall quality of the Figma is superior to the Fraulein revoltech. Almost everything is in Figma's favour. The stand is better, the joints are better, the feel is better etc etc. I'm finding it more easier to pose Konata than Yoko and switching of the faces and hands are not so much a hassle either.

Ok this Konata cosplay ver should keep me happy for a while. Thanks for reading and as a reward I'll leave you with the cutest Konata cosplay picture I could find!
Take care!~

Nice! This was one of my first figmas as well.
Also your Pile of boxes (and your accessory bags) will never be as big as mine!

Mandarake: a store located in a pocket dimension that are run by timelords.

They really do have some really rare/cool/grail-worthy items for sale on there. Anyways congrats on finding your grail.

Also cheers to blackmercury for linking you to your grail.

Grats =) Btw I've seen her for about 1600 yen somewhere, so it's always possible to find almost any figure for a good price ;)
