Just yesterday, I thought of doing something different every Thursday and I decided to call it,
Tsun Tsun Hey Hey Thursday aka HHT.
So why Thursday, you ask? Well, Thursday gets me excited since it’s the day when you can almost taste the weekend. Once a week, I’ll post something which hopefully excites you as well and perhaps stimulates a bit of discussion with all of you. This will also help me get a bit more consistent with my posts. ^^;
The first topic that came to my mind was, what characteristics of a figure make you press that buy button? I’m talking about that strong urge that you get when you see something in a toy and you feel like you really, really have to get it. I guess my penchant for zettai ryouiki is no secret but I haven’t mentioned that I’m a sucker for twintails too. Below are some figs that made that cut.
This 1/6 scale Nasca was the first figure that I bought. Since she’s not wearing a skirt, I guess that’s not exactly zettai ryouiki but the thighhighs make up for it, right?
Twintails. I actually like Black Rock Shooter’s hair and her weapons so I got 3 figures of her plus a figma and a Nendo. Not sure if I still want to get more BRS stuff in the future though.
I just saw this Hatsune Miku Love is War fig from the GSC website and I must say I’m quite impressed with this version. I’m not liking her face that much though. But the dynamic pose, the hair, the base, very nice.
This version of Rin is perhaps the epitome of my ideal figure. I’m still regretting why I didn’t get her. Perfect twintails, Grade A zettai ryouiki plus that endearing tsun tsun pout, what more could I ask for!
This young Alice by Alter has been in my wishlist since forever. Sans the skirt, I guess there’s no zettai ryouiki here but like Nasca, the thighhighs plus the cute face make more than enough for it. ^^
Permission to preorder her was granted! I’m so happy! Naoe Kanetsugu is just awesome.
There are a lot of other figs that fit my description of a must-get which makes just makes my wishlist longer. Lol. Everybody has some sort of preference, right? So tell me, what’s yours?
