I am finally getting my hands on some new ‘toys’. But for the connoisseur or collector, they should be called ‘figures’. Now that this silliness is out of the way, let’s take a look ~
I have pre ordered one from the Armor Girls Project (AGP) series which is due out in December ~ I hope. This will be the MS Girl GP03 Stamen figure that I am getting for $70USD. I actually have the Gundam Fix Figuration (GFF) version of as well . It will go quite well with my other purchase a while back of the MS Girl Wing Gundam figure.
I have found that they are also doing a ‘Holiday Version’ of MS Girl Wing Gundam. This one however, has an asking $128 USD which was almost 2.5x as much as I paid for the original version. At that price, you can keep it . . . for now.
I must say that I really like this style of figures from AGP. I may try to also get the versions from the Infinite Stratos anime series. They are just as detailed and with the same amount of accessories as a GFF. It is a great mix of mecha and moe that can’t be denied. They also do a line from Strike Witches, but too much moe and not enough mecha for me. There I finally said it – ‘moe’ - LOL.
I also went through Big Bad Toys Store’s (BBTS) Overstock Sale section to see if anything might pop out. I figured I could do some Christmas shopping while I am on their site. If you are a big fan of Transformers or Star Wars figures, they have a ton of them in this section. It is broken down in percentage increments, which are nice so you know which group has the best deals.
To my wondrous surprise, I found a Revoltech figure of the White Liger Zoid (Revoltech #93EX). I already have the Blue Liger and Red Geno Breaker from last year’s holiday season. This is the Miyazawa Mokei Exclusive version was on sale for only $34.16USD; it was a no-brainer. Besides the color difference (see photo), I don’t think there is much else of a change. Still, these are awesome figures to own – now I just need to get the Red version.
I even found some SD Gundam model kits which I got for my son. I just got 2 of them (#348 Bashoku and #353 Gakushin Gundams) since they had dragons on the armor. He really enjoys building these with me, so why not. At under $5USD for each, it was another easy choice. I also found a sheet of Peel and Press stickers from the Yu-Gi-Oh series. I am sure he will use these to decorate his bed.
I am sure you will see review posts here once I can ‘play’ with them.
