Fully filled dakimakura cover

I washed the Daiba Minato cover and filled it with the Sears body pillow and a 20x28" pillow bought from Target. I was originally going to use a smaller pillow but it turned out the body pillow filling can be squished higher making the top fill out more but at the cost of having the body pillow take up less space in the cover. It's hard to tell from the picture but the 2nd pillow starts from the knees down. I'm happy with the way the cover is filled out but the 2nd pillow is much stiffer than the body pillow so I'm going to switch it out for something softer.

I built the first of the MiniPla. It was easier than I thought. You can pretty much twist the pieces out by hand and then use a model knife to shave off any sprue that sticks out too much. Next will be Grinder.

I decided to keep Tsugaru for now. If I get another EX, it would be Waffebunny and she would be my last EX. I'm on the fence on getting the upcoming Shinki figures; they've gotten rather expensive.

Brief & dirty Tsugaru review

I have mixed feelings on Tsugaru. I like her look but her execution leaves much to be desired. She's backheavy due to the fact that her backpack sticks out further from her back than is really needed. Her thigh armor doesn't serve much purpose other than to get in the way of either mode. The armor's alt mode is a joke; it doesn't stick together well and you have to perform figure gymnastics to get the figure onto the vehicle. Her blades and electromagnetic rifles can't be wielded by themselves; you need to find some other part to help her use them which is a huge pain in the arse. Frankly I'm a bit on the fence about keeping her and she may be the last EX armor I'm getting.
