new po 29

It really has been a while since the last “New Preorders” post, I forgot to update it to be honest. The prices for the precious figures we all love have been on the rise this year.

Nevertheless, we will take a look on the latest figures that appeared at the shops recently.


Ordered Items

figures I’ve ordered recently …

Lala Satalin Deviluke – Swimsuit version

I was really surprised as ALTER announced this wonderful bombshell, named Lala. She is big and just looks amazingly detailed. Her clothes are quite skimpy and I love it. The figure has pretty hair and her head wears  a cute, subtle expression and just look at these green eyes.

YAHALLO! How is it going with your figure orders near the end of the year?

I will take a look at Yui Yuigahama today, it’s a figure from Max Factory, which was released recently in October. Yui was designed by Shima, measuring 23 cm at the 1/7 scale.
When I really like a figure made by Max Factory I often don’t hesitate with placing an order.

Yui Yuigahama - Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru - Max Factory - 008

Without knowing the anime of this interesting figure, I knew that I wanted her here on my desk. Before the release I watched Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. It was a jawdrop experience for me, since it is a different kind of school comedy. The main characters are very likeable and surprisingly deep. It was an extremely good anime.


Saber Extra

Finally figure material arrived again, the Saber EXTRA – swimsuit version, which I was really looking forward to will be on review today. In 2015 I bought many swimsuit figures, I must really like summer the beach and pretty girls in a variety of swimsuits (´ ▽`).。o♡.

Saber EXTRA was manufactured by Alter, the release date was in early October 2015. The figure was sculpted by Hashimoto Ryou. I was quite excited when I learned that the figure scale was 1/6 with her kneeing pose she measures 18 cm , the size gives her a good presence.

Never was a fan of Saber in most Fate animes, she was interesting as heroine, but didn’t win my heart. In UBW which aired recently that changed a bit, she was quite cute.

Today we follow Riō’s little excursion in 22 pictures I took within 10 days of my vacation.

Yeah, this became a doll content focused blog, figures don’t give me anything these days. Haha ok it was actually a joke, I will probably receive new figures to review next week ^^.

I went on a short vacation at the Northern Sea, just an advice if you will ever take a trip there, don’t do it in October, it’s chilly with the sea breeze. Luckily I had a few sunny days.

I took Riō with me and Mirai stayed at home, I fortunately was able to got my hands on a VOLKS carrying bag beforehand, which makes big Doll transportation a lot easier.

Yo dear readers!

Apparently I really have too much fun with the fashion doll hobby, it’s just too exciting ;D
I actually did not consider to buy another BJD after Mirai, but one thing lead to another… Everything started some months ago, when I found a post at Orchid Dolls about of a face up commission. I always liked custom Dollfie Dream heads, it’s nice to have a personalized Doll.

After several months of deciding what I actually wanted Mirai’s “little sister” to look like,
I asked Clockwork_Angel from Flickr, if she would have time and interest for my idea…

Mirai already was given a name in the factory, but of course a custom Doll needs a proper name, too. I decided to name her Riō 里桜  (village cherry blossom), it’s a name often used in animes of the 90’s, I always liked that name, it’s short and has a very nice ring to it.
