Ebay/Con Update!/Otacute Order

February 1, 2010 at 12:12 am 2 comments

Ah well, time for another more personal post regarding some things in my boring ol’ life now.  Last night and today I browsed Ebay for over 8 hours.  I am completely hooked on it trying to find good deals on anime merchandise.  I do know the horrors of Ebay, but I still cannot stop the pull!!  I have been doing my best to stay away from figures all together since half the time they end up being bootlegged.  That being said…..I still bought some from a seemingly reputable source.  I have a pretty good feeling about it!

On another note I have fully ordered my Kisuke coplay for my Dragon and Animazement con….yessss I did order it and not mad it myself, I am not that talented in that field.  All in all it will run me around $130 or so, mainly because of the wig and outfit.  I decided to go all out for it.  The whole costume should be in….middle of this month I hope, some parts arriving earlier than others.

Also! I received my Konata figure from Otacute!  I have had my wearies over the store for a while now considering they had a lot of older figures in  stock that had been long sold out.  My suspicions were somewhat true.  She has some defects, a bit of a sloppy paint job in some areas as well, I am nearly convinced she is a bootleg, but I will take some pictures tomorrow and maybe someone could tell me otherwise.

(Feeling REALLY lazy and did not add much pics….lol)

    Got my curiosity up about your Otacute purchase. Were you able to take some photos? Also, you might send them the photos? Wonder if they might exchange it for you. I have ordered there as well but the delivery date is a little ways off.

    Don’t know if this helps but I have seen other stores add a disclaimer that in some cases the paint may need to be touched up. (paraphrasing) I believe that was on Hobby Link Japan. (www.hlj.com) I do not have a large collection of figurines but I feel I will eventually run into this problem. I’m keeping my eye out for good cleaning and touch up tips. (www.dannychoo.com linked some cleaning tips at one time)

      Ah I will take some photos for you tomorrow, I am still weary with them actually. I have the new K-ON! Yui figure coming in from them soon so I am little concerned what I might get this time around. Let me get you some pics tomorrow when I do my post tomorrow alright ^^
