Hi, folks and welcome to my May loot! :3
There's excessive picture-bombing ahead, so proceed at your own risk (I really can't help it, I just love taking those pics you know ;_;).


As you can see May was a quite heavy month for me, both in terms of pre-orders and extra purchases (for some reason I managed to put money ahead away of time O_o). So this post will be quite long (June too for that matter). If you don't care about reading all that feel free to just look at the pictures. :3
The reason I'm later than usual is, because, albeit being EMS, my amiami-package got stuck in customs like a week (I've... never EVER had an EMS package in customs longer than 3 working days) and then send on for pick-up at the local customs office (another 2 days until the letter arrived and then I had to arrange a ride, since I don't own a car...). Now, I grudgingly accept that customs is something I have to pay and packages have to be inspected... blahblahblah... but what I don't get is why it takes friggin' week for my package to get processed in Frankfurt and then just send on to the local office. Like, if you don't bother to do your work or can't read invoices just send it on faster...

It wasn't all bad last month. I went to Japantag (or Nihon Day) in Düsseldorf (which is also the city where I'm attending university), an annual celebration (or convention) of the German-Japanese friendship, with lots of booths and events/shows and a big and impressive fireworks display at the end. Attending and seeing friends I only rarely see otherwise has become a sort of tradition already (I believe it was my 7th or 8th year this time around) and as always we had a lovely time. Couldn't help noticing that it gets fuller every year (and tbh I really hate crowds).

Why do I tell you that you might think now...
Well, apart from me being chatty person, I bought some cute little Nendos there. Now I did see some booths with bootlegs too (which makes me sad and angry), I didn't get any (just seeing them is enough already...). I stuck with Figuya and GSC's joined booth to get my little cuties. Got up pretty early for that too and bought them quickly (I remember a Nendo I wanted being sold out at Gamescom last year already, though it was only the second day...).

Starting off with ITEM #567485...
I sure loved playing around with her, I took quite a few pictures and this Snow Miku is just so precious. Considering I didn't really want her when the first promo pictures got uploaded I'm really glad I did anyway, she is just that much cuter in person (even my mum likes her and she basically thinks anime/manga and related stuff is bs and figures a waste of money, though she tolerates me doing my thing).

Next up is...
Another Miku ITEM #581731, no I'm not a fan hers (and will never be), but I just couldn't resist the cuteness. Also, I love the parts, both for this one and the Snow Miku.
Anyway I'm glad she was also part of the sales menu and jumped at the opportunity to get her (don't like ordering from GSC and local shops blatantly overcharged).

Just look how cute she is w/o her twintails. *______*

And last but not least (for Nihon Day that is) there is my most beloved explosion-magic user ITEM #662298.
I didn't plan to get her at first, since I'm not all that fond of alternate Nendos, but in the end the munching fp totally won me over (I'm even using that pic as an avatar in some messenger apps atm). It's just gold. She's pretty cute overall too and I had a lot of fun playing around with the lobster-hands.^^

Well, after the Japantag-stuff now comes the stuff I ordered or pre-ordered and I'll begin with ITEM #396942. After I missed her first release I took my chance ordering the rerelease. Sadly she comes without the bonus arm, but then again that thing isn't particularly nice to look at and I don't mean the general visuals. Now I love Velvet and Tales of Berseria, but I'm not perfectly happy with this figure. While her pose is very like her and most of the details look fairly good, I'm not fond of the face (especially the pink lips and her eyes). It's still a pretty figure and I'll keep her (probably), but still...

Her hair could use some shading too...

Next up is ITEM #604194, which I also reviewed (BLOG #40293). I splurged and went with the bonus face for it, because it's so unique (though I'm not using it right now). Overall she is a very stunning figure (constantly reminding me that I need to continue reading Kakegurui) and I'm glad I added her to my collection. But now I'm looking for figures with a similar size, theme (cards or gambling) and/or color-scheme to go with her. x3

Another figure I was very excited for (and also reviewed: BLOG #40362) is ITEM #532059. To make it short: I'm going for the full set, I love the racing outfits and I also love Rin, so getting her was a no-brainer for me, plus she turned out really nice. She is my favorite Rin figure so far (not that there are that many to choose from).
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/06/23/2006056.jpeg
So far Rin and Saber look really good together, though I'm not displaying them like that atm for various reasons.^^

I also got ITEM #549455 & ITEM #549458 (my friends jokingly say that I've descended into idol-hell, or at least LL-hell, now). In fact I did know LL before (watched 2 seasons of it quite some time ago), but I don't particularly care about it (enjoyed the anime though). Well, seeing how I'm quite focused on visuals that doesn't exactly matter. These 2 are just so stunningly beautiful that I had to get them. I debated long about it, but in the end I'm so, so very glad I caved. The outfits and the cheerful air those 2 give off satisfy so many of my moe points that it's almost creepy. x3

Alright, next up we have another Rin, her figma 2.0 this time ITEM #287746. I've recently realized how fun figmas are to pose (yeah, I'm a late-bloomer x3) and that that's something I really enjoy (as opposed to Nendos, which can be really annoying in that regard). I didn't particularly want to order her anytime soon, I've been ogling her in online shops though. So when my best friend asked me if I wanna order something from a certain shop to avoid shipping and mentioned she was getting Rin I just went ahead and let her order one for me too (no regrets!). Well, she is fun to play with as you can see and I did some stupid stuff too (really love that they included the glasses). x3

And at least one pic has to be NSFW.... x3
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/06/23/2006229.jpeg

Now we're getting to (more) Nendos, first off ITEM #549404. Tbh I stopped watching Meitantei Conan quite some time ago and I don't really plan to pick it up. Maybe if they finish it some day, but I probably won't live to see the day. x3 So yeah, either I don't know or I simply forgot this character, but I thought he looked cool. Love his outfit, the cigar and the rifle. <3

Another cutie joining my ever-growing army is ITEM #604384. He is just adorable and I like that he comes with 2 heads.
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/06/24/2006385.jpeg
Unfortunately this is the only picture I made including this set ENTRY #147772, because it was very late and my brain didn't work correctly anymore (did it ever though?). -_-

There's still one Nendo left and I was so excited for him when he went up for pre-order ITEM #639324. I'm not too fond of his armor being that light gray (why not make it silver like Arturia's?), but he came out so cute and adorable, that I don't really care anymore. He's fun to play around with too (didn't use the extra arms, since I just didn't need them though).
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/06/24/2006395.jpeg
Arturia sure wants her face and crown back. x3

I also got a little present from my best friend ITEM #115281. <3
I've wanted to merch of Irisviel for a while now (finally caved this month and ordered the figma) since Fate/Zero is my favorite among the adaptions, but there isn't exactly much and I'm really happy to get this little cutie (thank you! :*).
View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/06/24/2006401.jpeg
She joined some of my other Fate figures (mostly Sabers as you can see).^^

Well, I don't have enough Fate merch rigth now *heavy coughing*, so I got a little set of trading figures ENTRY #134821 too. Sadly I'll never own the first one of the 'line' (there's no way I can justify paying the price they go for, they're reeeeally tiny after all), but these are cute and funny enough on their own so whatever. x3

May also marked the month the Mahou Tsukai no Yome trading figures ENTRY #127144 finally came out! :3
Now, I know the price-tag was quite steep (too much if you ask me), but I've loved the manga for a while now and the anime just added more to that so I could hardly be reasonable and got them anyway. I sure am glad I did, they are so friggin' cute. There are some flaws and some decisions by the maker don't exactly make sense to me (I might or might not do a review on them to elaborate on those, but I can't promise anything yet), but my overall impression is still very, very positive.

So much for figures, but I also got some other stuff this month.
One is a plush of one of my alltime favorite starters from Pokemon ITEM #718024. I'd never gotten it if not for my best friend (we match in weird but fabulous ways) though, since she bought it during one of our 'shopping sprees' (was the only one on the store had in-stock though, so in the end I ordered it online). I just couldn't resist the cuteness. ^^"
It just about fits a cracked ostrich's eggshell. x3

Last month was fairly light in terms of keychains and straps, but there are ofc the usual Fate ones... x3

Some Yurucamp...

And some inofficial ones again (can't help browsing).^^"
This time I got these cuties from Minoru's Workshop: www.minorujoeli.... <3

Oh yeah, I got ITEM #636898 too (also due to my best friend's influence) if you remember the overview picture. I actually forgot to take one of just the game, but I still wanted to mention it (didn't start playing yet though). x3

That's it for last month's loot (I'll expect some people to think: 'FINALLY!' x3)! All in all im perfectly happy with everything I got and some small complaints won't deter me.

Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope you liked it (though it was quite long again, sry).
June will probably the last monthly loot of this scale for a while (at least I hope so). While I do love getting a lot of stuff it's also a strain time-wise and obviously in terms of money. Besides I also want appreciate everything properly.^^
Anyway, feel free to leave any other thoughts you have in the comments.( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

broken-Toybox lump of laziness
spinners_grove2 år sedan#38704687Just curious, do you think you'll ever do a review of the Ancient Magus set? I just got mine in the mail today and although I'm absolutely in love with them, some of the design choices seem very odd. (Why is Aerial balanced so weird? How the hell do I get Will-o-the-Wisp's staff in his hand? Where do they expect me to fit the snowman onto Wolf!Chise's stand?) I'm just wondering if anyone's had the same questions.
Ah, sure I thought there wasn't any interest in that so I kinda forgot, but I can write something up after work. :3
I love them too, but there are way more design choices that are weird too. Like why do a few have pegs and others don't (why are Silky's and regular Chise's under their feet making them unable to stand w/o the base?)?
Wolf Chise's parts are really annoying to fit and balance on the base (even if you manage to do it like in the promo-pic, don't you dare touch it afterwards x3). As for Will-o-Wisp, one of his arms can be detached and getting his staff in his hand is fairly easy then (but it's not like that's shown anywhere...).
For a set that expensive I actually expected the execution to be more... 'professional'(?) I guess, I mean as I said I do love it, but some things really don't make sense.
I'll still write that review though, I uploaded the pictures in advance too after all. :3

I know, right? But there's still so much stuff I want and leaving them in boxes feels sad. :<
I can barely bear waiting for all of my monthly stuff to arrive for the overview pics each month. x3

solluxcaptor2 år sedan#36321533My EMS packages always spend so long in customs (a week minimum) that I just go for SAL, it's cheaper and it'll probably arrive to me in the same time (sometimes without customs) anyway lol
Awesome loot, I love seeing big varied hauls like this :D
That's different over here, 3 days is the norm for EMS and SAL aprt from being slow to arrive anyway can spend like 2 weeks+ in customs and then it still won't arrive at my doorstep (at least for EMS it's 50/50). I'm just not that patient.

Thanks! :3 I fear my next one's will be very Fate-heavy again wit only a few other items mixed in (delays are such a fun thing.... not).

tomocchi2 år sedan#36328929Lmao, you're not yet in idol hell I think, but it's a start! xD
I really like the Racing Rin (and Saber too). Not sure about Nero though.
I'll wait for your review of her! xD
Magical Mirai Miku is soooo cute. You know I love her, lol.
But the new Snow Miku one looks really cute here too. <3
I don't really want to enter though. O_o Maybe, dabble a bit, but nothing more.
So far I'm not too fond of Nero's design, but to be fair the promo pictures are really bad in terms of lighting and angles, so I won't judge yet (at least not too much).
DId you know, that your post initially made me interested in her? I mean sure, she is cute and I noticed that before, but if that alone made me cave I'd be living on the streets right now. x3
She really is, something about her design just speaks to me. Apart from that I do love the base (and the mini stand, instead of the normal one).
