Loot: 2011 April (1 of 4) & (2 of 4)

i got two package arrived to me on the same day. the larger package from hobby link japan, and the smaller package from zavvi.

from zavvi, i got myself a psp game 3rd Birthday: twisted edition. this edition is europe release only.

it contains a copy of c.t.i. confidential – an exclusive 48 page hard cover book packed with top secret artwork and concept illustrations; two deluxe aya brea lithograph art prints and an exclusive lightning in aya brea costume for use in the forthcoming psp release dissida 012 duodecim final fantasy.
i would like to mention again that zavvi deliver there goods world wide for free.

from hobby link japan, i only got four things:

  • figma - 078 s.e. kirara: aya kagura uniform version. it was 45% off, i couldn't pass up on a "alright" deal compare to this "one great" deal i miss out at amiami. anyways, im not a fan of this series, the reason i got this figure was because i wanted the extra facial expression and accessory for my exclusive figma - sp010 aya morning coffee version.
  • revoplier, its a tool i decided to get for my revoltech's collection. i been having a hard time posing my figures in a certain way. i didn't want to force my figure to bend causing it to break, so removing the pegs and putting it back on seems to be the correct way of doing it. sounds easy, but my finger tips hurts like hell from removing those damn pegs. especially the smaller ones. my problem is now solved.
  • hobby japan magazine august 2010, this issue came with a very cute charm of black rock shooter. it was $9.40/each, i decided to place 2 order since it was somewhat cheap. i'll be opening one and keeping the other one seal as a collector's item.
here is where i got really upset about hobby link japan. those 4 items are like $41, and im expecting my shipping charge would be at least half of $41 because that what i normally paid. instead, it was $54. i find it to be ridiculously expensive, so i e-mail them about it. they respond back, saying that the 2 magazine i ordered was heavy. apparently, the weight added the extra cost. i guess the magazine wasn't that cheap as it seems to be, there should be a warning.
