Loot: 2011 May (1 of 2)

heres a package that was send to me by tokyohunter, a proxy i used to purchase exclusive stuff that is release no where else other than japan. i ordered this back in 2010 october, so long ago that i almost forgot about it.

with the cost of the item, buyer's commission fee, shipping fee from the shop to the buyer, and shipping fee from the buyer to me add-up to be one expensive item.

this item is figma sp020: misaka imouto a character from the anime "a certain magical index".
this figure is a limited release to twenty thousand. they all have a tag label beneath the base of the stand that has a running number from 00001 to 20000.

i am very eager to find out what number i got, so here a quick look and mine is 17073

i can't read japanese, but there writing (or characters) is very similar to chinese. since i studied a little bit of chinese, i can still make out some of the characters. for those who needs help, heres a translation-number-character.well.. i guess this is far as i'll go on this rare item. since i now know my number, i'm gonna put it back in the box where it original belong. this is as close as it is to a review on a figure as it gonna be... until next time.

Zack Fair Artwork (Work In Progress)

final fantasy vii was a great game during my teenage-year. it was so great, it got me hopping on the squaresoft-bandwagon (which was known by that name until they merge the company they are known as now "square-enix"). anyways, with the release of crisis core: final fantasy vii, square-enix reminded me why i hopped on there bandwagon. the love of a game with good story, good art, good sound track, and good game-play.

here are some artwork i been working on, a character from crisis core: final fantasy vii's zack fair.

different angle of posing position
(top left corner) zack holding up a materia, (middle) a close-up on zack slashing downward, and last (bottom left corner) a farther look on zack kneeing down on one leg, downward slash.

a parody: the last battle scene of zack fighting off countless shrine soldier
i wanted to do like a mini comic showing zack at his last stand, jumping into the crowd of enemies. hacking and slashing his way towards survival/freedom, until he slowly getting gun down. maybe a few panel of flashback of aerith to increase the emotion of the story, epic. hopefully it can be done. as of now, its just a dream.

chibi zack with moggle
i drew this base on a picture from my cosplaying event at ACEN.

Loot: 2011 April (3 of 4)

package arrived after 13 days of waiting, it was shipped out to me during the 27th of april. its a psp game shin megami tensi: persona 3 collector edition, this edition is europe release only.

as you can see the bubble envelop bag is twice the size of the item. i don't like any my stuff being deliver in bubble envelope bag, especially a collector items because it doesn't give much of a protection. it can easily be crashed, which it did happened. theres a few crush mark on the cover box when i examine it. i guess i shouldn't complain too much since the delivery is free from

anyways, this collector edition contain a 48 page hardback art book, 6 art cards, a3 poster (11" x 17"), and a slipcase exclusive.

heres are some quick pictures i took, wanted to posted this up asap since i haven't post up anything for a while.
agian, i would like to mention that i will not likely post up a review for this item since im not planning to break the seal. it a collector item after all. the game itself for a review might happen if i can get a used copy with in my budget of spending.
