Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Saber Bride
Just announced the release of Nendoroid Saber Bride today~
Nendoroid Saber Bride (release month: April 2014)
I feel kinda sad that I couldn't order figma Saber Bride but this one's really cute too! (^3^)
Nice detailing on the sword, the outfit, and especially the patterns on the veil and round the waist. Plus nice delicate paintwork on the edges of the veil & 'skirt'.
Definitely on my wishlist!

Last month of 2013~ Can't believe how fast time flies...
Lil sis is back home now and we're both taking on the #Newbodymakeover Challenge by Cassie (aka Blogilates)~ Head over to her blog & sign up for the newsletter to get the password to access the calendar!
Just completed the first workout and OMG my thighs burned oRZ
Well enough about that. I believe I mentioned the One OK Rock (OOR) concert last month...
It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!! No secret pics taken during the concert itself coz really? Ain't nobody got time for that when you can enjoy the AWESOME-ness of OOR performing LIVE. I believe I walked out of the venue half-deaf with weak knees and sweating like a pig. That's how AWESOME the band was.
List of merchandise sold at the concert: (pic taken from Toybox Projects FB page)
Me & lil sis both got Tee B
Since I don't have anything to show for the concert, you can check out the 'report' from one of the media:
>> ONE OK ROCK Concert Live in Malaysia at KL LIVE <<
Pretty accurate although I doubt there were 'thousands of fans', more like in the hundreds (^_^;;)
Me, lil sis & KT were among those in the front row, right the center :) I think we were in the 4th or 5th 'row' from the stage so we were quite close.
Taka (the lead singer) looked handsome up-close (=^_^=)
Can't wait to see if they'll return to Malaysia again in the future~

It's back... Oh boy...
I am, of course, talking about McDonald's "Hello Kitty Fairy Tales" collection. See below.
Saw a poster of the new promo last night with mum.
Told her about the "Hello Kitty madness in Singapore" that went viral everywhere a few months ago. Of course, our southern counterpart has an extra Kitty - one that you can get via McDelivery aka Hello Kitty McDelivery.
Have another clearer image:
And after some digging around, found out that Hong Kong had another Collector's Kit Special Edition Wisdom Owl Kitty last year (O__O;;)
Feel kinda sad the Wisdom Owl isn't available here :( It's quite cute too (TT_TT)
Anyway, went to McDonald's official site to find out more about the Kitties available here...
Oh, have I mentioned I have one? :3
Lifted the pic from my FB XD
Mum wanted to collect them coz she's planning to auction them off on eBay apparently (>_>;;)
I, on the other hand, want to collect them for collection's sake. I mean, I already have the Coca-Cola Contour glasses and the Coca-Cola "Can" glasses :P Something adorable for a change, I say XD
By the way, while you're at the counter ordering something you might as well ask for the Hello Kitty promo flyer. If you flip it over, it's a free Hello Kitty origami that you can DIY yourself ;)

Firstly, I was ecstatic when I found out ASTRO channel, FOX, would be screening Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this month!
Secondly, One OK Rock's concert is in 2 weeks' time!!!
CAN'T WAIT~~~~!!!! ~~~\(^O^)/~~~
We (lil sis & I) have front row tickets too~~ \(^O^)/
Anyway, enough of that... A few figure updates ahead~
Saber (Fate/Stay Night) by Griffon Enterprise (release month: November 2013)
The painting and details on this figure are quite good actually.
But I've already got a whole bunch of Sabers in her different 'forms' so this one's a pass for me (._.)
Figma Indiana Jones by Max Factory (release month: March 2014)
Can't say I'm a fan of Indiana Jones...
Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~ (release month: May 2014)
The scale figure based on Madoka from the movie "Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie: The Beginning Story / The Everlasting". Also sculpted by the same guy who did Ultimate Madoka aka "Godoka" (see below):
After Godoka, everything else is incomparable XD
The latest Madoka figure isn't that bad really just.... her face seems a bit eh..."childish", to me. Meh.
That's all folks~ XD

Racing Miku 2013 Ver.
Apparently the figma version of Racing Miku is out~
Figma Racing Miku 2013 Ver. (release month: January 2014)
From this artwork:
I find myself liking the 'edgier' look of the 2013 version compared to the other years. Miku's got a more futuristic-looking outfit, sharp edges and all plus the tiny crown on her head is really cute XD
Unfortunately pre-orders are already closed (>_<|||) I might get her when she's released next year...

~~ New look ~~
Celebrating my new blog's 1 year 4 month+ anniversary with a new layout~
Yes, it's white and plain but I prefer clean & plain layouts anyway. Don't worry, I usually post pictures so there will be some colour :P
I find fancy/colourful layouts a bit distracting so I try searching for the plainest/simplest layout I can find without having to do drastic changes to the original layout template. It was either this one or another, but I stuck with this one in the end coz I can put some lovely words as the header/footer :)
And yes, insomnia kicked in hence I'm doing it at 1:00 A.M. instead of a "reasonable hour" :P
What do you think?
The header & footer are quoted from One OK Rock's song 'C.h.a.o.s.m.y.t.h.' - a song about friendship - which is a change from their usual songs :)
Have another lovely phrase from the song:
We all have unforgettable and precious treasure
Definitely one of my favourite songs from the band (^_^)b
And speaking of new stuff...
The Star Trek blu-rays are FINALLY here~~!!
I got both the special 3-disc edition of Star Trek (2009) and the regular BD version of Star Trek Into Darkness.
(Personally, I think there should be a semicolon somewhere in that title >_>)
Also got the BD version of 'War Horse'~
*cough*benedict cumberbatch*cough*tom hiddleston*cough*
It's a movie about a horse. Set in the World War I era. It's a lovely horse but no, I'm not a fan of the movie because of the animal.
Yes, I'm a shameless Hiddlestoner and Cumberbitch. :)
Even though Benedict prefers that his fans do not call themselves Cumberbitches... How bout Cumberbatches? Sounds like a cookie advert (>_>;;)
Edit: Apparently his fans now call themselves 'Cumberbabes'. I am so slow, sorry (._.|||)
And Tom thinks the term 'Hiddlestoner' sounds like it's calling for someone to be stoned :P
Have a look at my tumblr blog and- Just go look, yeah?
Still wide awake though. Damn it.

Super late post
On WonFes 2013 Summer (^_^;;)
Usually I follow Danny Choo's blog regularly coz he blogs about loads of stuff most of the time unless he's busy ....but I've been distracted lately so yea... (>_>;;)
Anyway, caught up with his posts on WF2013 Summer yesterday and today I'll be talking about figures that caught my eye.
But before that, here's something I saw, like, maaaaaaybe a couple of weeks ago or longer than that.
ANYWAY, a friend of mine posted this video of T.M. Revolution's performance of 'Heart of Sword' at the I Love Anisong concert during Anime Festival Asia (AFA) Singapore 2012. If you're curious, here's the link to the full concert on YouTube: AFA2012 Day 1 - T.M. Revolution (Full concert)
Then, on Sept 13 TMR tweeted about a nendoroid figure that was sculpted to him!
Apparently it was designed after one of his stage outfits seen during his live tour 'T.M.R. LIVE REVOLUTION'13 - UNDER : COVER 2 -'.
The nendoroid is available for order on the GSC Online Shop from now till 15 October 2013.
Anyway, back to WF2013 Summer...
Here are the links to Danny's posts on the event:
A few of the figures displayed caught my eye so the following will be a picspam :P Some of the pics are from Danny's posts FYI.
From the Good Smile Company booth:
Hatsune Miku Senbon Zakura Ver. 1/8 scale figure
Looking forward to seeing the colored version of this :)
Benten from ZONE-00 1/7 scale figure
Nearly had a heart attack seeing Benten (@.@) OH MY GOD!!!! FINALLY!!!
I'VE BEEN WAITING FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER~~~!!!!!
He looks so AWESOME I am SO ordering him
And that's it from GSC XD
Now, from the Kotobukiya booth:
Ryougi Shiki from Kara no Kyoukai 1/8 scale figure (images from official site)
She's pretty darn expensive (=_=;;) To be released in February 2014, if I'm not mistaken...
Demon Fox Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho ARTFX J figure (images from official site)
Which I've already pre-ordered through froz *shifty eyes*
And that's it for Kotobukiya~
If I'm not mistaken, there were a ton of Miku stuff at the Dealer booths but I'm not gonna cover that.
Lil sis hates Miku coz she thinks Miku's overrated and over-sensationalized and over-Miku-ed (>_>;;) but I like her .....in certain versions. Miku's not for everyone (^_^;;).
In lil sister's case, she's more of a Luka / Rin / Len fan :P
Aaaaaaaaaand that's it for September~~
Dream as if you will live forever
And live as if you'll die today
