The Devil on G-String Usami Hal 1/8 PVC figure by Toranoana

The Devil on G-String Usami Hal 1/8 PVC figure by Toranoana

This is a very attractive figure. Cool socks, sweet face, very nicely sculpted and posed. The ears and tail seem to come on and off, perhaps magnets.
Very sexy figure, in a certain pose she might be too much for some companies. The original art is included in the phone card version for 500 yen more.
Seems to be limited.
November 209, 100mm long, 5,500 yen (tax included) for normal version, or 6,000 for phone card version.
Some NSFW post the “More” tag.
Toranora online store exclusive (use deputy services). Normal and card (limited) versions.

What I Purchased Recently. Or, I am Poor.

These are the things I’ve purchased over July, ok, the Wave Rei pre-order was today. This is why I am currently poor. The pre-orders are what will keep me poor. There are really nice signed copies of most of Roger Zelazny‘s books on eBay right now, but I’m not bidding. He’s my favourite author.

Figures:

  • Yoko Rittona/Littner’s Nendoroid, which had been reviewed.
  • Otaku Yuki, which came with Haruhi-chan 3’s limited edition, which had been reviewed.
  • Banpresto’s Neliel tu Oderschvanck, not yet received (When I write a review, I’ll tell you what I was thinking…)

RPGs:

Miniatures:

Others:

  • Tony Taka’s Shining World artbook. Magnificent. Since I dawdled when J-List had it, I ended up paying a pretty penny for it. But it was worth every penny.
  • Eisenhorn omnibus.
  • Formula P3 Basic miniature painting techniques DVD.
  • No Quarter #25 (For the Mk. 1 rules for the Retribution of Scyrah).
  • The manga of Haruhi-Chan 3, in Japanese.
  • Regular comic haul: New Fullmetal Alchemist manga (volume 19, was great), new Knights of the Dinner Table and Hellblazer (which I finally cut off).

Pre-ordered:

  • Rei Ayanami Plugsuit version by Wave (via HLJ) – Late November release.
  • Aegis Figma, Persona 3, by Max Factory  (via Hobby Search) – October release.
  • Saber Lily Nendoroid, by Good Smile Company (via Hobby Search) – October release.
  • Dengeki Hime with Komaki Aika figure – July release, not yet shipped for some reason (via HLJ).
