EPIC Loot Haul!EPIC Loot Haul!

Hello everyone! I've only been collecting for seven months, but this is the first time I've had the energy to share anything, so I thought I'd make a loot post of all the goodies in the massive parcel I just got from Zenmarket! Fandoms in the following; Blue exorcist, Haikyuu!!, Hunter x Hunter, Bungou Stray Dogs, N0.6 with a sprinkling of fairytail, Wixoss, Natsume's Book of friends and re;zero.
Here we have my cat on the box for scale, haha!https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510187785.jpeg
This is the second time I've used Zenmarket as a proxy, and as usual everything is packed lovely and safe
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131267.jpeg They use japanese newspaper as basic packing, with a nice thank you note as well.https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131275.jpeg Now for the good stuff!https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131284.jpeg Several hours of frenzied unpacking later...
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131292.jpeg This is everything I could fit into the frame! I would apologize for the phone pictures, except my phone camera is decent and I actually ended up having to shrink the file size to upload them to mfc. Overseas shipping for ems was pretty expensive; this box is only slightly bigger than my first parcel, but twice as heavy, and three times the cost! (15,600 yen) which was painful. I used to just divide the cost by everything I got, but what I do now is take the difference between how much I paid for things and how much they are worth and subtract that from the shipping fee until it's all gone to see whether I overpaid for things or not. For example, Tamayorihime was only 12,800 yen, but her original price is 19,000 yen plus, so she soaked up a lot of the shipping for me. I actually ordered Tamayorihime 60+ days ago, and just accumulated purchases in Zenmarket's warehouse until they started charging me for storage :/ I got these from Yahoo auctions! and Suruga-ya respectively.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131374.jpegSmall note about the plushies; I actually found out about Puck (ITEM #562034) from anouther loot post, but unfortunately mine won't seem to sit up properly, he keeps on falling backwards and has to be propped up by my kuro plushie, (ITEM #101698) which came with it's original bag and everything and was just listed as preowned, but smells really strongly or earwax, of all things. I'll have to wash him! I got ITEM #433051 killua for around 4200 yen all up, because I couldn't find ITEM #93921 for a good price anywhere, and it was the best substitute, but I ended up getting him anyway because he's slightly damaged and therefore cheaper! His skateboard goes really well with mini killua, too.https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510130600.jpeg Atsushi Nakajima is my #2 Husbando so of course I had to get ITEM #433051 the keychain and ITEM #555116 the acrylic stand so I could have some official merchandise of him. Of course, ITEM #639492 was announced so after, and I can't wait to nab him as well! He's my first acrylic stand, and I must say despite the lettering being pressed against his body and the small size, I love him! ITEM #138563 and ITEM #138564 , the ane keychains, actually came in a lot with some trading figures!https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131347.jpeg I bought it for Rin and Bon, but Shima and Yukio look good too! The books are in English because I can't read Japanese, but are a good price on book depository!https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131301.jpeg Ah yes, here I decided to buy a couple of doujinshi I had my eye on for a while, but Zenmarket was having a flash sale so I ended up buying way more than I planned. Honestly, after the 100 yen service fee and japanese tax and internal shipping, it was only 200 yen less than just ordering them from Mandarake myself, which is what i'll do next time, but I ended up loving all of them! It was kind of a blind bag because mostly all I had to go off of was the covers, but the art in most is so good I can't tell it apart from the actual manga! It's all safe for work as well, and I don't really ship incest, but like I said, it's super tame.https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131309.jpeg...Except for some of the chapters in Blue Pride 3 and Rin 2. I'll have to hide those away. The anthologies are the width of an actual manga, which was surprising to say the least. I impulse bought ITEM #538890 and only found it on mfc afterwards, but it's full of great (official? idk) art. If anyone is interested I'd be happy to photograph the insides of it and the other doujinshi. Maybe someone can even help me translate, haha! This ITEM #86268 N0.6 logbog was only 600 yen on mandarake, and is mostly anime screencaps and japanese interviews with the voice actors and director (I think) but has some lovely illustrations by Toi8.https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131318.jpeg I got two A1 size haikyuu posters; the left is not on the database unfortunately. Cospa did some lovely tapestries ITEM #271153 that sell cheaply now, but I feel one is enough, and I like Yamaguchi's the most. https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131366.jpeg Some lovely posters; again the one on the left is not on the database but the other two are. They were in a tube so I apologize for the curling.https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131355.jpeg Some lovely tapestries. The top left isn't on the database, but the other's are. I'm not a massive Oikawa fan, so I might sell his slim tapestry. ( I like him, but I love everyone else).https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131330.jpeg Some cool posters! I actually had like 20+ I wanted to buy but limited myself to these.https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131338.jpeg SEE THE ONE ON THE TOP RIGHT? YEP, IT'S A N0.6 POSTER! It was on the back of the bottom poster in the previous picture and nearly gave me a heart attack! ITEM #132360 The clear posters are lovely and sturdy, but Shiro's one isn't on the database. Do you remember ITEM #198433 Natsu from the start? I was up till 1am in the morning in a bidding war on Yahoo Auctions, and managed to win him NEW AND SEALED for only 10,300 yen. Just for context, a new and sealed Natsu goes for like 53,000 yen now. I felt kind of bad opening him, but I'm not the type of collector to let things stay in boxes. Actually, the second I knew I won him, I bought Grey preowned to go with him for 11,000 yen from Solaris Japan. The next day, he was out of stock and the brand new price is 31,000, so i'm happy with that, although I picked ferry shipping which can take up to 8 weeks, so I might not get him for anouther 4 weeks, but when I do...https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510130213.jpeg look at this! Isn't it fabulous! I've never bought anything like this before, but it bothered me that Natsu has his flames while Grey wouldn't have his ice, so I bought some for him! I actually ordered ITEM #520662 Victor, and will probably take some pictures with him and it, then it would be like Victor on ice!!! (terrible pun I know)https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131382.jpeg To finish off, here's the last two figures I bought! ITEM #287808 Tama is lovely and I got her cheap because off a small scratch on her hair which isn't visible from the front, but when i opened her, her head nearly fell off! I quickly pushed it back on and thought that was the end of it, but then one of her belt buckles snapped off when i went to put her on her stand, so I'll have to superglue it back on. AND her halo won't fit into her hair properly. That aside, she looks great next to Olivia in terms of size! ITEM #27627 Black rock shooter is a special anime to me because I saw a really cool AMV of it and promised myself I wouldn't watch it until I finished all my exams. It was worth the wait! Dead Master has several figures and people love this one ITEM #27666 but I prefer mine for the pose. I would get the others, except they seem to lewd for me to own (I know this is a little hypocritical, but *shrugs) One more pick for good measure!https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Solarstormflare1510131391.jpeg And that's it folks! The result of 60 days of my fun spending money. I have several things pre-ordered for next year and I'm supposed to be saving and not buying any more anime stuff, but every now and then I might... I already spent a lot though! Anyway, please let me know what you think! Talk to me, we can be friends! What's your favourite thing here? Any tips? <3 Till next time! Thanks for reading! *Update, thanks for making this a featured article! It makes me really happy! Also, person who thought this was uninteresting, please say why so I can improve for next time!

Solarstormflare (10 mese/i fa) #28320359Thanks! I've done (or coerced others to help me) harder glue jobs before, so it should be fine. Out of curiosity, did the head on yours ever come off, and did the yellow circle not fit into her hair?

Yeah it shouldn't be a problem then, that's good. :)
Nothing like that happened with mine..her head is very stable and doesn't even 'move' at all. And I guess that the yellow circle is supposed to stay behind the hair, cause mine is also behind it and not going into it. It looks like the one of yours in the pics and all the pics in google. Or did I misunderstand you? ^^'

Solarstormflare (10 mese/i fa) #28326702Really? Which was yours? It was actually two BRS amvs that i downloaded from youtube and watched again and again-probably at least 50 times each, haha! It was this one www.youtube.com... and this one www.youtube.com... that got me really intrigued about the source material. Thanks for reading! <3

It was that “Make a Move” one for me :D I thought it looked awesome so I sought the source out after seeing it.

rubyserpent_720 (10 mese/i fa) #28320490Super awesome loot and great prices! You have good taste :)
By the way are you aware of this Killua? ITEM #151206 He's pretty well made
Aw thanks! I actually was aware of the killua you mentioned, but I didn't really like the pose-HOLY CRAP HE HAS A YO-YO UM THIS ONE IS DEFInETLY on THE WANT LIST NOW HOW DID I NOT NOTICE BEFORE? Oh, I just had a proper look at the user pics and he has taped up hands as well? and looks much better than the prototype? Shame I can't find him for less than 4800 yen-oh they don't deal with proxy services. Bummer. Ah well! I like your collection too! <3

Beth2468 (10 mese/i fa) #28309577You've got great loot there! ;3
The Blue Exorcist part is my favorite one, I could look at all kinds of Rin merch and figures all day long probably... xDD ♥
And your No. 6 merch is nice!
I also own a this Tama figure (watched the Anime after buying her :'D) and I love her. Sad that you seemed to have some little problems with her, I hope you'll be able to glue the broken piece back on. ^^

chiisai-hime (10 mese/i fa) #28308157Nice loot! I used ITEM #304380 for 'blue magic effects' on my Gray since he needed something and the rest is on my Killua figma. Wow, I didn't know him and Natsu were so expensive now!
Tamayorihime looks really nice but I could never justify that price with shipping XD I guess you'll be getting Atsushi's nendoroid when it comes out!
Thanks! I've been trying to stay away from nendoroids but I'm definitely going to pre-order him! Yeah, lots of male figures have crazy prices now. I see we both have ITEM #198656 Altair Natsume; he's like 3-4 times retail price now, so I was lucky to find him for *only* 13,000 yen. I saw that blue effect and was tempted to get it but went for the ice in the end!
