If you thought I was finished with figurine buying until October (when the first two of four 4th quarter pre-orders arrive), I have some news for you: my bank account is still taking a major beating.
Following the events of Otakon, I was busy browsing Hobby Link Japan and discovered that they've restocked a whole lot of Busou Shinki figures (aka one of my anti-drugs, as it would be impossible for me to buy drugs if I keep buying these figures). Seeing what HLJ had to offer, I ended up ordering three figures (two in my initial order, and a third one following the events of ToysLogic not properly informing people that some of their figures were sold out).
The first order arrived last Saturday, with the other arriving a week later. The orders consisted of the following figures:
Starting things off is Partio the Pikachu ferret Busou Shinki. Of the three figures, this one was pretty much going to be included in my initial order, given how it was the cheapest of the the three (and the fact that I already have Pomock).
Here's my pictures of Partio with the various items that she comes. Please note that if I'm just keeping things simple (as in short or no comments accompanying some of the remaining photos in this post), it's because I'm still drained from the Otakon reports and really don't feel like providing long comments for each picture (as well as the fact that I have another blog entry to work on for another site).
Oh yeah, given the fish bone accessory and how she and Pomock go together, I knew I had to do a photo where Pomock is interested in wanting the fish.
My main action pose for Partio.
The other two figures consists of the two beetle Busou Shinki girls, Lancamento and Espadia. When it came to which one to buy alongside with Partio, I spent a lot of time contemplating my choice. In the end, I decided to order Lancamento first, with me ordering Espadia a few days later. However, I decided that since those two were meant to be together, I decided to group their photos together.
For Lancamento and Espadia, I took three pictures of each, with each picture representing a different stage in putting on each girl's armor.
STAGE 1: The girls as they appear as soon as you take them out of the box.
STAGE 2: Minimal Armor (I decided not to give the girls helmets or different breast armor, but did change their facial expressions)
STAGE 3: Full Armor
BTW, note that while I could do the same thing I did with Lancamento and Espadia with the Busou Shinki that I pre-ordered, I'm most likely going to keep her "armorless", especially given what can be made with her armor.
Ending this report, here's the three figures that I got in 3D (3DS needed for these shots):
