Clearance on Tiger & Bunny figures at TRU

tamashii shopping
For Tiger & Bunny fans who like the show but been putting off buying the figures due to high price of imports, TRU website has some related stuff for clearance. SH Figuarts Sky High for $14.98, Figuarts Lunatic for $13.98, Chibi-Arts Kotetsu for $9.98, and Chibi-Arts Barnaby also for $9.98. Getting all four will put you just a few cents shy of the $49 to qualify for free shipping but TRU has pletty of stuff in the clearance area that should fill the gap such as Kre-o Dr Mayhems Jewel Heist for 98 cents.

Speaking of Tiger & Bunny, I have yet to watch the series myself... orz I should really go watch it.

Nendoroid Maiko Madoka & Kuonji Alice: pkg impressions

Crunchyroll purchase June 2014
My most recent Japanese related purchase would be Nendoroid Kaname Madoka Maiko ver and Nendoroid Kuonji Alice, both bought from Crunchyroll last week. I've been interested in Maiko Madoka however only noticed her after her preorder had passed; she was roughly twice the cost of Alice. :/ The one good thing is that shipping was free for both so it wasn't all bad. They came from separate venders BTW; Madoka came from Yes Anime while Alice came direct from GSC. Both came within a few days which means they shipped from within the US.

Alice looks nice in the box. I already get the impression that I'm going to like her. I'm not quite so sure about Madoka however. I decided to get her since I already have other similar Nendoroids like Yune and Snow Miku 2013. I don't see it ever likely that I'll get around to playing Alice's source material but it would be nice. Come to think of it, I've yet to throughly play any of Type-Moon's games. *sweatdrop*

What to do

When I originally started this blog, my intent was to have a blog with reviews of toys and stuff that interest me but don't get reviewed much elsewhere, if at all. Since getting my current day job, that has fallen completely on the wayside, especially with an ever-increasing backlog of toys and games to play with and other distraction such as anime and manga. However, it would be a waste to let the blog go completely to waste so here's yet another attempt to revive the blogging activity! I might as well be hitting my head against the wall at this point, heh.
