Slaigar's Figures!

Postby Slaigar » September 6th, 2007, 5:50 am

I have only been collecting for a short while and I have really been enjoying it. My main source to pick stuff up has been eBay but that is slowly changing over to HLJ as that is where my preorders are being set.

I'm using a cheap Sony camera which I have absolutely no idea really how to use. So the quality is going to be hit & miss. I'm getting a headache trying to get the zoom to focus properly.

Shoved all of them together for a group photo. Starting from the left to the right:

Ignis [ALTER]

Fate/Zero Saber & Irisviel WF exclusive [ALTER]
[edit: changed the photo]
Irisviel goes down as my new favourite with that outfit. It looks great in the box so I probably won't be opening this one.

Close-ups coming soon...
Spoiler:
whenever I learn how to use this stupid camera

Ever since I saw the photos of what Alter was going to release at WonderFest, I have been checking eBay a hundred times a day until someone was posted one. Definitely wasn't cheap, but well worth it. I can't get a good photo of it as I all I get is a massive reflection from the flash (without the flash it is too dark to see detail).

Sweet Alter Saber and Irisviel WF exclusive, it's just too expensive for me to get one now

Psst... Slaigar, so exactly how much did you pay for them on eBay, assuming that's where you got it?

$65USD for the figure + $30USD for shipping = ~$95 (~$100CAD). No regrets there and I love it to death. My rational to my wallet is that it was cheaper than flying to Japan and attending WonderFest.

Those photos are as good as it will get until I get a new camera and also remove them out of the box. The surrounding plastic distorts it too much.

Nice collection. You might want to keep an eye on Motoko. Mine started to bend forward after a few weeks and I had to put her away. ;_;

Whoa nice one Slaigar, the Saber is one thing but the Ilya looks awesome... I love how she looks so mature, what's up with that??
I see you have Saika, I can't wait to get mine...
I just got that Ignis too, I love it. Unfortunately my figure collecting spree will have to come to a grinding halt until I can get a new job now that school is back in next week :P

Will you ever take the WF exclusive Saber and Ilya out of their box though? Don't mean to pressure you but I would kill to see some pictures of them from different angles :P

Thanks for the heads up. None of my figures get exposure to anything extreme, so Motoko should be OK for awhile.

Hehe, we really are collecting most of the same stuff. The Ignis by Alter is definitely my favourite when compared to the Ignis figures done by other companies. I know how that grinding halt feels, my last batch for the summer just came in, so that is it for awhile until my preorders come in. It saddens me not to get anymore stuff in the mail, hehe. Ah well, atleast I get to eat while I have classes.
If I can find a good place to put the Fate/Zero figures (my case is getting full), I will open it. The temptation to crack it open haunts me everyday.

A few new arrivals:
Arcueid front.jpg

Arcueid Brunestud by Alter
I've been waiting for this one for awhile. The paintjob is simple but the pose makes up for it. The dress is also removeable, but her under garments isn't very sexy (kind of expected).

Ayanami Rei BMX Trick by Kotobukiya
It looks so cute. There is just something about this figure that always makes me smile when I see it. Quite small (1/12 scale), so it stands around 15cm tall. This is my first Kotobukiya figure and I am impressed.

Peeking through the background is Nagi death cloth and Hikaru death cloth by Alter.

Wow...you have a nice collection as well. The WF Fate/Zero figures are really nice as well even though saber looks like she's from the matrix...

I also have Kanu Uncho White Gothic Lolita but I no longer have a camera (my sis has it once again). These last photos were taken last week but I was too lazy to load them up.

In anticipation for my preorders, I built a new case. Did something different this time and made a middle shelf with it. It can't hold much but it should last me for the next season.

Also since I have more room, I opened the Fate Zero box and put those two in there and took a few more photos. They are absolutely gorgeous.
