Wow, what’s this? More Lucky Star figures announced for release? This year is turning out to be very generous to Lucky Star collectors. This time it’s a 1/12 scale of the Hiiragi sisters, Kagami and Tsukasa by Wave Corporation. This is the same company that’s releasing the Konata & Kanata set which I’ve already pre-ordered ;). The only thing is that they are just 1/12 scale and yet the retail price will be ￥7,140 or ￥3,675 for each separately. As much as I like Lucky Star, that seems a bit expensive for tiny 1/12 scale figures. Ah well, I may still end up getting them ^^; While Kagami while always be my favorite, Tsukasa looks particularly cute in this pose. Quite tempting :)

Ok, they didn’t actually fall from the sky but that would be a nice change of weather ^^; In fact, I’ve had these nendoroids for a couple months; I just haven’t gotten around to taking photos of them until now. And the reason for that is that I have a new camera :) Yep, I’m the proud owner of a Canon 40D. This is my first DSLR (that I didn’t borrow) so I’m still learning how to apply the various features of this powerful camera.
Unfortunately, the following photos reveal my inexperience as I took them the day I received the camera >_< Ah, well.. I’ve actually learned quite a bit in the few days since then so hopefully my next photos will look better. If anyone has expereience taking good photos of figures, I’d be interested in additional advice. Hit the jump for the photos. Continue reading
It’s out ^^ As of this time, there are no subs out yet, but you can find the raw at various places around the interwebs. Seeing as how I’ve been waiting for this for months, I decided to grab the raw and use my rusty Japanese skills to decipher the moon language used within. Continue reading
Yay, more Lucky Star goodies! Hiiragi Tsukasa and Izumi Konata made their way from Japan to my home earlier this week. These Figma action figures were ordered from HobbyLink Japan if you’re looking for a place to pick these or other Figma up. Continue reading
I’m not really a collector of figurines. As seen earlier, I don’t have many figures so due to my inexperience in such matters, I can’t really consider this a proper review. Though I have little experience with figures, my love for Lucky Star overcomes all ;) Continue reading
