Stalking is a crime so you shouldn't do it!

You shouldn't stalk and secretly take pictures of cute little girls, just sayin'.

How did that saying go? "Today's enemies are tomorrow's friends." Or was that the other way around, I'm not really sure actually.

One of the cool things about having a lot of figmas is that I can do nice stupid crossovers like this, I love it.

Laters peeps!

Kirino gets in trouble with the law!

I bet no one sees what lesson Kirino learns coming at all.

So recently I received my Kuroko figma.  Waited pretty much all of last year since the game she comes bundled with kept getting delayed.

The game itself is a visual novel with some quick time events here and there using some rather nice 3D models. While I'm not fluent in Japanese I can vaguely understand what's going on... except Kuroko, I can't for the life of me understand anything she says other than her sentence ending "desu no".

Now that the setting is... er... set... we turn to Kirino.

I found these figma sized cola cans a while back, been wanting to use them forever now. Glad to see that I finally get to use them.

Hopefully this sequence of events is not too obtuse.

Also, hmm, what a familiar arm band, what a familiar gun too.

"Nice shooting there, son."

Yes, I know what you are thinking, the can in the air part was magic... or if you are exilehero, why is the can still in one piece?

I bet if you watched the movies as a kid, I bet you tried to do this. I tried, it's really hard actually.

Hopefully the gif played for you and loops, if not, make sure to open it in another window to see it.

Alright, who actually guessed anywhere close as to what lesson Kirino learned?

Also, this was pretty much just a shout out to this scene from Robocop 2.

To end it off, a nice PSA from Robocop!

It's been a while since I mentioned it so, don't forget to subscirbe to the RSS feed, our follow me or exilehero on twitter. All those lovely links can be found on the footer of any page.

Pre-order list: the OMG so much $$$ edition!

It's been a while since I done one of these.

Last time it was back on late June.

October

Ergh, so annoying I was so looking forward to have Yukari waiting for me at home after I came back from my business trip. Alas, she was delayed until the end of October, I hope there is no more delays for her.

Everybody watched Working!! right? Such a fun show, out of all the girls I must say Yamada is my favorite of the bunch. Such a fun character, Alter's rendition sure displays that.

Man, I was so hyped for this figma. I mean, it's Robocop, Robocop!

Much like with Phat's Yukari Robocop was delayed until the end of October.

This is odd, I been collecting figmas ever since their introduction a few years back. All of them have been exclusively girls, now though I want quite a few guys.

I look forward to getting Touma, been wanting to continue that CNN9 report I did back in February.

So, I know how people feel about Kirino and Kuroneko but what about Ayase?

I don't really like her but just look at those faces and cuffs, she is bound to be fun for pictures. Even more so with that unluky Touma figma I'm getting.

November

November can't come soon enough, I can't wait to get Homura my favorite Puella Magi.

Although, I must say, Homura needs more guns, no assault rifles? no light machine guns? Makes me a bit sad.

For a while Kuroko was my favorite Index girl. She is such a perv, I love it.

Sadly I gotta pay extra for her much like with Biri Biri and Misaka-imouto because of bundled in game. Still I look forward to use her on that CNN9 report continuation.

December

Earlier this year my lack of employment led me to miss out on this awesome Dizzy figure.

As a fan on Guilty Gear and Dizzy, I'm happy to have the chance to rectify that.

So I hear NISA might bring the BRS game to the west, including may be that special edition from Japan.

From that game comes this version of BRS. I think she looks quite cool with the wings and the more manageable cannon.

I'm getting all the other Index figmas so no surprised I'm getting Index herself right?

I'm curious to see how the use of cloth will turn out with her and the other figmas that make use of it.

January

Joining Madoka and Homura is Mami.

Was she always this busty? I really don't remember her being this busty on the show. Anyways, I'm quite happy with the selection of expressions for Mami.

We all have figures we wished we had bought, or had the chance to buy.

The original Alter Aigis was one such figure for me, so I quickly jumped at the chance of owning this figure. After all Aigis is my favorite girl from Persona 3.

People go about how this and that character is GAR or manly but none can compare to Guts.

Just look at him, Guts kills the type of things that are final bosses on a daily basis. You want manliness go for the guy that kills Eldrich abominations as if it was a walk in the park.

February

Sigh... this girl... out of all the Puella Magi she was the one with the design I liked the most. Too bad the rest was a lost cause. Still I look forward to owning her, too bad there is no expression to go for when she snapped before she died.

March

I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait for Ika Musume next year. Everything that makes her so awesome is well represented in this figma. Plus just look at the crying face of her, so darn cute.

So there you have it, biggest pre-order list I had up until now. It's only missing one figure, the Queen's Blade version of Noel Vermillion but her exclusiveness and high price is making me hesitate to commit to buy her.

So, anyone getting any these?

"Wall-o-Figures"

Behold my version of what fellow comrade Tommy from the Inferno Project christened Wall-o-Figures. It's nice to finally being able to display my figures in a nice manner like this.

This also gave me the chance to finally open a few figures I had yet to unbox due to lack of space.

Although not as stylish as with glass shelves I'm quite pleased with the result. After all it was relative cheap and still leaves with space for future purchases.

A Certain Scientific Teleporter - Kotobukiya's Shirai Kuroko

Today after a failed attempt at an Aigis photo shoot I decided instead to do one for a certain Biri Biri obsessed teleporter.

I didn't want to do a photo shoot until I got Misaka but when she went on sale she was sold out before I could say Onee-sama.

First things first, I shall introduce Kuroko to those that haven't watched/read To Aru Majutsu no Index and it's spin off To Aru Kagaku no Railgun.

Kuroko is an esper resident of Academy City, a place where people with psychic abilities come to learn how to improve  and control them. Espers are ranked from levels 1 to 5 with Kuroko ranking at level 4.

She is also part of the student public moral committee known as Judgement whose job is to pretty much catch other students misusing their powers.

Kuroko was released by Kotobukiya during this past Spring. She is a 1/8 scaled PVC figure and retailed around 6000 yen. I got mine from Hobby Search for 5700 yen.

What originally attracted me to this figure was the dynamic pose. I hadn't seen that many figures with poses so full of movement back then.

After reading the To Aru Kagaku no Railgun manga, and having seen her character expanded more I became a fan. With that I new I had to get my hands on her along with Biri Biri.

I'm quite pleased with this figure, I had heard some criticism for Kotobukiya releases but Kuroko seemed well made to me.

I'm content with the painting and amount of details, details such as her Judgement armband and her weapons.

Another detail I like that was included as To Aru Kagaku no Railgun viewers know are Kuroko's fancy pantsu and her weapon hostlers.

The school bag has sufficient amount of detail and is removable from Kuroko's hand.

I think the base is pretty cool, instead of it just being some circle or square it's this neat diorama type base. Kuroko is attached to the base with a nice long peg on her left leg.

So far I have seen no indication of leaning in the time I have had her in display.

The skirt is removable allowing an easy look at Kuroko's fancy pantsu.

She is so far my only scaled figure that has some sort of cast off.

Over all I'm pleased with this figure, I love the dynamic pose, the quality is up to par, and I believe this to be an accurate representation of the character.

The only thing left is get Biri Biri to complete the set.
