Another Busou Shinki Figure in Time for the New Anime

Another Busou Shinki Figure in Time for the New Anime
31 Oct 2012 04:39:15

I'd probably would have started on this sooner. However, with a busy period involving a Rifftrax event in theaters, my niece turning two, and concern about a hurricane hitting my area, I haven't really gotten a chance to start writing the blog post until a couple days after I got the figure.

Well, it's October, and that means a new season of anime. When it comes to the Fall 2012 titles, the two main titles that I've been trying to watch are Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Hidamari Sketch X Honeycomb (well, those episodes after the two-episode school trip). However, I've been reading about the new anime based on the Busou Shinki figure line, and while there's a little bit of nervousness about the series ruining my own personal Busou Shinki storyline, after watching the first episode (and settling into the show's concept), it may not be a concern that I thought it would be (although I'm more likely going to stick to just the two that I mentioned above).

At the same time, it also cause me to realize one thing: people will likely become interested in the Busou Shinki figures (and maybe we'll see more people cosplaying as characters from it) as a result of the anime. With that in mind, I actually visited the usual online figure sites that I check out regularly just to see what they have in stock. Not surprisingly, the figures are pretty much out of stock in the regular places that I check. However, when checking Hobby Search, I discovered that the site had re-stocked on one figure that I haven't picked up yet, the Nurse-type Shinki Bright Feather. Taking advantage of this, I ordered the last one that they had of it, and after waiting to see if it would indeed ship (or if I was too late, as it was immediately listed as sold out after I ordered my figure), it indeed shipped, with me receiving it this past Thursday (with me being able to take photos of it before I went to the Rifftrax event).

As usual, here's my photos of the latest addition in my Busou Shinki collection.

Bright Feather as she appears after taking her out of the packaging (save for the footwear, which I switched out before taking this picture).

Bright Feather with glasses and nurse's hat accessories.

My main pose for Bright Feather. A couple of notes here:

1. I originally wanted her to hold the "injection" gun that is her main weapon of choice. Unfortunately, it was too much of a hassle for it to stay in place;

2. As you can see in the last two pictures, the base broke while trying to pose her. As such, I had to do some makeshift repairs. Here, you can see some of the Tacky Glue I used to paste parts of the base together, with me eventually wrapping the broken part with duct tape later.

Anyways, next week is going to be a big one, as that's the weekend of Anime USA. As usual, expect me to take some cosplay photos while I'm there (as well as mention any purchases that I got while at the con).

Congratulations on your purchase! This is a very sweet girl.

Hold on, the hurricane will be over soon! We believe in it. News scary looking.
A great pity the people, so much is lost!
Believe in the best!

When it came to my area (Clinton, Maryland), the hurricane was pretty much gone by Tuesday morning (with things being back to normal on Wednesday). The real mess in our area was the freak storm that happened a few months ago (which left a lot of places without power for a few days).
