Spring additions! (mostly GBF + FFXIV)Spring additions! (mostly GBF + FFXIV)Loot

Hi all! I've had a lot of little things (and one big thing) trickling in over the last couple of months, so I wanted to make a post about them!

Ta-da!!

Some of these things were preorders that took a while to get to me, while some were quarantine impulse buys, but I'm very excited about them!

The most noticeable item in the pile is ITEM #926091, which I preordered back in January! I was a little worried he wouldn't come out on time with all the delays, but he came out right as scheduled at the end of May ;u;

Now onto the most special items in the pile - these are prints that Granblue puts out every year for Valentines and White Day. You order them in February/March by buying "chocolates" for the characters from Cygames' store, and then in May the company sends out your "return gifts!" They've done a different style of gift every year (one year they did shikishi, and last year they did lineart cards), but this year they brought back the polaroid style they did in 2018.

These may look like polaroid prints, but they're actually printed on extra-thick card stock and signed in embossed ink. This is my first year buying them, and I was really impressed by the quality!

The most special thing about these valentines is that the characters you can buy gifts for isn't limited to the popular ones, or even the hundreds of playable ones. You can buy a valentine for almost every named character (or summon, or even enemy!) in the game, and Cygames makes sure that each character gets their own lovingly-crafted return gift. Even the joke ones. I decided to buy Valentines for my top three boys (Sandalphon, Seofon, and Seox) and also one for Helel Ben Sahar, but mostly because his lineart on last year's gifts was GORGEOUS and I had hoped they would reuse it (they did, yay!).

And now on to the pile of Final Fantasy items (among other things). Back in December I finally started playing FFXIV, and very quickly got hooked on it! I told myself I wasn't going to go too ham on merch for it, but as you can see, I have in fact gone ham.

Three of the FF items are official merch (the job pins and the exarch standee!) while the rest is fan stuff... normally I wouldn't buy this much fan merch, except I had a bunch of money I had saved for Sakuracon which was subsequently canceled. And so, I spent my Sakuracon budget on hot elves while supporting artists who are struggling after cons had to cancel. I think it should be easy to tell who my favorite is... may he rest in pepperonis

If any xiv players are wondering what the random Lyna is doing in the pile of elves, it's because... I bought her because she looks like my warrior of light lmao...

Here's how my whiteboard looks with the new keychains/polaroids up! I'm hoping to move my desk this weekend so i might rearrange again, but I really like how it looks now -u-

Some of the charms I decided not to hang on my whiteboard; some ended up on my overflow board, and some ended up in my Sandalphon itabag, haha! I plan to bring a couple of them to work when things open back up, too (that's mostly for ITEM #637143 and the Adam charm; since I work at a synagogue, I have a little display going of Jewish anime characters!)

Anyway, if you made it this far, thanks for reading!!

Here are all the indie artist links in case you spotted something you like:
Sandalphon heart pin & Pokemon buttons: bearyprince on Etsy (the Pokemon buttons were a bonus gift from the artist!)
Sparrow pin: Rollmade
Wedding Galo charm: N4391 (can't recommend their stuff enough!)
"Tied up" XIV charms and Haurchefant button: ursanovastore on Etsy
"Goodnight" XIV charms: faunna (their store is closed right now, so I linked their twitter instead)

Magusfigures2 månader sedan#79011426Big same on the valentines' cards; they're all so gorgeous ;-; I've seen ones from past years pop up on mandarake before, so it might be worth keeping an eye out!
And yep, that's a Djeeta acrylic stand! I got her from the Cygames pop-up store tour they did in the states. (I was really lucky to get her, since the Seattle store sold out of just about everything by 2pm on the first day...)


I've been keeping an eye out for them on suru and they're already starting to climb in prices especially the popular characters (I regret on not getting Vicky and Lobelia sigh) and I was plesantly surprised by the quality of these cards. The embossed signature is amazing!

Rubysp2 månader sedan#78977545Thanks for sharing and man that Sandy plushie is massive. I really wish Cygames would sell the valentines cards after release because I wanted to get more characters after seeing the new art. They really outdone themselves this year
Is that a Djeeta acrylic stand in your last photo?

Milady-Alluca2 månader sedan#78977270So much cute merch~!!
I really love the Sandy print too, his gentle expression is just so perfect! I don't even play the game but I'm such a fan of him!
I love the XIV stuff especially :D The doll-pose charms are so cute,
so many good boys and a bun!!
The Crystal Exarch standee has such pretty art, I've never gotten a standee but I really felt tempted seeing him!!!
And your WoL is lovely, she looks so cool~!! Lyna is a good stand-in for her haha!
I hope you have been really enjoying your experience with the game, it really saved my life and still makes me so happy to play it myself ^v^

aa thank you!! ;u;

I was originally not a fan of acrylic standees, but after buying a few of them i'm becoming a standee apologist lmao. The Exarch one is really lovely, and I think square store had them available for a few other characters too?

I've been having such a good time with xiv!!! i wasn't expecting to get too into it since I'm not very good at videogames, but before I knew it I was hooked... I love so many of the characters & the story is so good (just finishing up the post-HW patches now). plus it's definitely been a lifesaver during quarantine lmao
