New Arrival: Robot Damashii Extreme Gundam (type-LEOS) Xenon Face

extremepost01Or just Extreme Leos from here on out.  Extreme Leos is from the Gundam Extreme VS Full Burst game, which I have never actually played on account of being a Japanese arcade game until only recently, and even then the PS3 version ain’t never getting localized.  I have played the previous iteration of the game for a few minutes, but Extreme Leos wasn’t in that version and I generally had no idea what was going on.

I had been waffling on Extreme for quite a while, passing on the original release and the re-release.  Even though I thought it looked really cool, I kept being disappointed with various Robot Damashiis I had previously gotten, so I think I was worried Extreme Leos wouldn’t be as good as it looked.  Finally decided to go ahead and pick one up at Otakon, and now I kinda wish I had went ahead and bought it earlier.  At least I still only paid pretty much retail price.

I don’t feel particularly confident about these pictures or this post, but I suppose it’ll be better than the Girl Diablo post which I feel bad about.

Apparently a repaint version has already been announced for release in a few months, but I’m not sure how much I’d want it. Continue reading

New Arrival: SHFiguarts Cure Heart

heartpost01Figuarts Cure Heart, from the cartoon series made for little girls, DokiDoki! Precure, and my first Figuarts in quite a while.  Purchased from Amiami since for some reason HLJ wasn’t even bothering to offer any sort of discount.  Although speaking of Amiami, apparently they’re pulling some scummy tactics by basing their “discounts” on prices that include Japan’s domestic sales tax, which HLJ and Hobby Search don’t charge.
