Haul of the Week

Another tough week on the wallet.

Some miscellaneous stuff I got from the Sunday flea market. Mainly swords and weapon series from Japanese companies, and chain base 002 from Kotobukiya. This will determine if I will order chain base 004, 005 and 006.

Legendary Comic Book Heroes series 1 and 2 (including the variants), with the 2-packs as well. Series 2 is still in the shop as I was not able to carry all of them back. These figures are cheaper, compared to their previous Marvel Legends series.
Talking about Marvel Legends, just got word about a certain BAF that will be available cheap soon !

These 12" figures arrived this week. Medicom's Rider One from The Next movie. This is similar to the Rider One from The First movie, but with darker colours and battle damaged helmet.
And got myself 2 Barrack Sergeant's 1/6 Bravo Body for future kitbashes. These feature seem to have greater articulation than the BBI G3.5 and Hottoys bodies.

Kaiyodo Revoltech #38 VF-1A Hikaru. Did not get #39 Gaiking Open Face as it was just a repaint (a resculpt on the chest face) of the earlier Gaiking release (eh, though #038 is also sort of a repaint of the previous VF releases).

And of course, how can a haul go without any Transformers.

While on the way home, grabbed the latest issue of Home & Decor.

Bleach Styling Trading Figure

Picked up this trading box figure from Bleach anime a few weeks ago because of the Ririn figure. I think I have the Kon figure somewhere. Will post pictures if I can find where I stashed it. These are not blind boxes, and the figure inside is shown on the box.
The figure that Ririn came with a Shinigami called Tōshirō Hitsugaya, captain of Soul Society's 10th Divsion.



Comes with standard clear base, stands to hold the figures, and paperslip of the figure.

Out of Package

Strike a pose.

Music Recommendation - Kekkaishi OP and ED

Caught this new series over the local cable (CH56). An interesting and funny anime, which consistent animation. The opening and closing themes usually show clips from the current and next episodes respectively. The opening theme has a nice rock feel to it, while the first closing theme has a very nice sentimental feel (maybe it's the guitar). I also like the way the episode ending blends/fades with the first ending theme.

Sumimura Yoshimori, a 14-year-old junior high school boy, is a descendant of Kekkaishi, or an exterminator of monsters He is vying for the heir to the family with Yumikura Tokine. Tokine is older than him, and she is his childhood friend as well as his rival Kekkaishi. To save people from the crises, and to make himself stronger, Yoshimori fights against monsters tonight, too.

Opening theme MV - "Sha la la -Ayakashi NIGHT" by Saeka Uura

Ending theme #1 - "Akai Ito" by Koshi Inaba (eps 1-15,38)
