Got my figurine. I listened to you guys and opened it. Here is a small review of it:

The box is really nice. a bit damaged, but i don't really care.

straight out of the box, this is what we get.

well, everything is warped tidyly. there are many hands, 4 different faces. sadly, i will have to make a choice when building the figurine: it will be either the armor stand representing gemini, the knight with its blue hair or the knight with its helmet. can't have all 3! :"(
Image

The finished built. the figurine is 6-7 inches tall without wings. The major letdown of this toy is that for 200$, you do not get a stand for it. this is outrageous! It is higly flexible. even the armor itself has a lot of pivot points to allow you a lot of poses. it is very well done. A lot of armor parts are metal.

As soon as i find a solution for a stand, i have the perfect display spot for it! next, i will get Aldebaran, my zodiac sign.

Finally completed my Rurouni Kenshin manga series. I originally was buying the 3-in-1 books, but the bindings were garbage. Individual manga volumes worked out much better. I also managed to grab the manga adaption of The Ring. Sadly, not as good as I remembered. Even the US movie is a better version of the story lol

OK, I know this technically doesn't belong here since it isn't an official product, but I'll post it anways. After attending this year's Japan Day near my home town, I felt a little bad about not bringing any attire to show my passion for the anime medium. So I designed and ordered a little something the other day:

Looks pretty amateur, I know, but there's only so much I could do with the online shop's designer and my own limited (read: basically nonexistant) graphic design skills.

I'll be 100% honest - I'd be quite embarassed to be seen wearing the shirt in general public. So this is one piece of clothing that'll stay safely tucked away in my closet until it's time for the next anime-related event.

I know that feel, I also have a handful of blatantly anime shirts, all official tho. But I don’t wear those in public at all really, more subtle ones like my evangelion shirts that just has the NERV logo are fine, but ones where it’s a whole character and are just really obvious I save for anime related events. Usually conventions.

Lol, gotta live the dream. My flying witch shirt and magus bride shirt get regular rotation. Who cares what you like. Chances are whoever makes fun of you is more nerdy about sports than you are about anime

It’s it even so much other people making fun of it cause of anime and more so just that those kind of Shinji aren’t really my style. I like more subtle stuff, simple colours and patterns. My NERV shirt is good for that while also still getting comments if people know what it is, which is nice. Bascially I just like simple clean shirts and styles usually.
