As promised in the main post, this post will cover the amazingly large number of news, re-stocks, delays and such that had occured within the span of the two weeks from the 2nd of October to the 15th.
- MegaHouse’s Mega Hobby Expo 2009 autumn. I really liked the Gintama pucchi school setup, which sometimes appears in the series.
- Tokyo Game Show 2009. Slightly too many figures from Square Enix of the upcoming FF XIII action figures, but I like the angel-winged girl and the samurai armour next to her.
- Dengeki Character Festival 2009, wherein the Dengeki magazine characters are shown.
More news, restocks, etc. after the “More” tag!
- Tamashi Nation Autumn 2009. A Bandai only event, centered mostly on upcoming figures, gunpla, and other plamos (Plastic models).
- Part 1, in which I’m digging the Karen Gurren mashup and the other Code Geass mini Knightmare figures (some based on the chassis of that figure released often, sometimes with the horse-legs?), those golden idols, and disliking the Saint Cloth figures. Also, there are gunpla kits.
- Part 2, which is great, where we see many scaled figures, magazine presents (I think Mari is such a figure), trading figures, and other things. A lot of adorable stuff, like childlike Asuka, Macross Frontier figures, etc.
- Part 3, filled with Kamen Rioder(?), masks, gunpla, and of course, DBZ figures.
- Part 4, focusing on robots. Some of the shots appeared in the other parts, but most did not.
- 49th All Japan Plamodel Hobby Japan Show 2009. A show focusing on plastic models, but Nekomagic’s posts focused on the figures.
- Part 1, focusing on WAVE and Aoshima (Mobip). Some really nice stuff, including unpainted and as far as I’ve seen not yet announced prototypes of figures, and some secret not yet announced figures are hinted at.
- Part 2, focusing on Kotokubiya. More HoiHoi, some figures from the recent Figure Friday post, and more shots of the upcoming figure of Lynette from Strike Witches.
- Part 3, dealing with other manufacturers. So, is that Inoue Orihime in the swimsuit? An assortment of figures, including some Poke’Mon too!
- Treasure Festa in Ariake 2. I am only linking to the quick impressions post, because it also links to the other posts… Well, a lot of K-On figures, including nekomimi, Mio with a nice headset on, a couple Misaka Mikoto/Imouto figures, and a LOAD of others. A great post.

And the cat? That’s Elliott, my cat. And the picture is “Fan-service” to all you loyal followers of my blog who also like cats, like Ducky :)
Shot is too bright, I know, but my cat just looks so tiger-esque and predatory here… taken when I was taking shots of Air for the review, which will be forthcoming.
