2nd Advent of the Anime Goddess and Domo-kun!

The goddess of anime has come! You know what that means! The war of Haruhi-Mio Wars will begin soon! It’s practically impossible for it not to happen. Haruhi’s second advent has 2ch and 4chan in an uproar and many are wondering what exactly were the Kadokawa heads smoking when they came up with the marketing strategy. It’s only a matter of time before someone goes “Haruhi pwns Mio any day!” and then the opposition will shout “Hypefag! Mio’s WAAAAAAY better!” and then finally comes the ALL CAPS LOCK RAGE FEST! I think I will enjoy the coming war very much since these fandom wars usually results in some very high quality artwork. It’s probably already started in 2ch since the Japanese otakus are extremely hardcore about it. How hardcore? They're hardcore enough to go over and stay at hotels in Saitama, the first region to get the new episode, because they can't wait a few days to see it air in their region. They are THAT hardcore! I've also been reading Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys and though the plot is really hard to fully understand, it's still a pretty good read and it gave me a character I really want to cosplay as, Tomodachi or "Friend". All I have to do is make a suit and the mask and I have a pretty memorable costume. Can't wait to freak people out.

I came up with an interesting feature to add to my blog. I’m going to put a list on all the Gunpla that’s coming out in the future from now in on the sidebar. Or at least the ones I’ll actually be able to get my hands on. Red is for kits yet to be announced officially, have no release date and info are based on hearsay, speculation or rumors from fans, Yellow for kits that have been announced and are months away from a release and Green for kits that are meant to be released during the current and next month. I’ll add on to the list every time I hear of new kits and remove those that have already been released. It seems that I really am meant to be on the side of evil since I am actually helping out Bandai indirectly this way. It won’t be long until I’m proven right about that RX-78-2 monument actually being combat able and they use it to take over the world. Sunrise science is way ahead of our time after all. I also came up with some new ways to exploit cherudim and the excaliburs I have.

The Holy Sword

Fold the guns down and you get holsters for excaliburs

This would have looked so much better as an aerial pose...

GN-X has to be my favourite grunt mecha of all time. It's perfect as an evil knight.

Earlier today, me, Rif and Khai decided to take a trip to see what the Chong Hock Kiulap Toynation section had in store for us. I went there anticipating a couple of Haruhi summer ver. Figmas waiting for us as I figured that it would be a good idea to commemorate the return of Haruhi-sama by purchasing her figma. Hopes crashed down as there was only one left in stock so I let Khai get it along with the Kagamine Rin Figma cause he saw it first yesterday. Looks like I'll just have to wait for the rerelease version cause that camera she comes with could make for a lot of fun photos. However, I did come across a couple of items that were worth the trip there, a Domo-kun lantern and a box of a 1/144 U.C. gun with a display stand. Unfortunately, despite how good the gun I got looked already, the others that I could have got were a whole lot cooler. I was hoping for the blue rifle on the box or the bazooka but I ended up with a GM's machine gun. It was worth the 7 bucks I spent on it though so I'll probably try my luck again next time.

I wanted that one...

Catalog, Item Data and Questionaire

Looks quite old from this. They don't make MSiA toys anymore either.

All ready to be assembled

Reminds me of those assasins in movies that assemble their guns at their operation areas

Assemble it for me Kagami! Attach the sight to the trigger.

Twist on the nozzle...

Add in the rifle stock...

And slide in the magazine

All ready for combat!

Actually fits quite snugly in Cherudim's hand

Looks good as a rifle...

And as a pistol too

The display stand for the gun

Excalibur always seems to look good in my pictures

And here's Domo-kun! Stuck in a latern!



Stay there and think about what you've done!

Well that's it for now. I plan to gut and cut open domo-kun intorder to insert a skeleton make of bionicle parts into him so I can get a posable domo-kun. Once I do that I got a skit I want it to do for me.
