Nice haul that you have there. All of those figures are pretty good finds.

Sadly, I have no local stores that carry anything interesting. If I order anything through them, I have to wait a few extra months plus pay more. And I have no cash for the time being, haha.

Excellent hauls, there's items in both which I wish I could get if only I had more funds :kuruc:

Yes that's the smaller one. The thing that really drew me to that figure is the face. She looks so innocent and cute.

I will go take some pics of Lillith and Morrigan ^_^

Seeing that just made me wish for money. Though for me, a lot of the figures there, I would only get if I had money to throw around and for the sake of collection.

That Rei is so awesome! I love the illustration of her that it's based on.

I did that for a while and it ended up with me having so many figures that I only sorta liked where now I only buy ones I really, really love. Plus when I buy new ones I try to find one or two old ones that I might not like as much anymore to sell this way I can hopefully not run out of space as much and make some money back.


I do love that Rei illustration. She is my fav character from Evangelion. Whenever I buy Eva sega prize figures I always buy the Asuka one too but I really couldn't stand her in the show. God was she irritating lol.

Here are pics of Morrigan and Lillith. I was very happy to find out that their little bat wings are made of metal rather than resin. I was worried about how fragile they would be :guru:

Hey Siye, here's a shot of the Kasumi. Best I could do right now, my camera and lighting suck.

Any other people have some new additions from internet purchases, etc?

Thanks guys for the feedback.

I don't know if it's because I live in California that I have a wider source of stores to compare prices. On the other hand, a majority of these-Ca based online stores don't have an actual brick-and-mortar storefront, so I get dinged on Ca. sales tax.

The place near where I live mainly deals with a hodge podge of anime/figure/comic/pokemon/trading cards/video games/replica weapons/etc., so in other words they're stretched out so thin that they don't specialize in anything so it's a bit more random. Also, since I don't think they have real sturdy ties with distributors and such, they charge more and the selection is limited and whatever.

There are other places, but I have to drive in opposite directions to get there.

I only buy things that are of relevance to me; I would never sell any figures just to make room. heh, I'll make room. I wouldn't sell anything that I collected. That's why I write down and look over all the things and evaluate what I'm gonna want in the end. I make the attachment before the item I'm collecting is ever bought, so I don't look at it down the road and wonder why I have it to begin with.

nekoarc, I would be afraid to put pretty, white Rei in the grass, but that's just me. :boo:
