My "Aria" computer now comes with Aqua inside!
Since it was a running a bit too hot for comfort I bought a Zalman Reserator water cooling kit for it, here's a few images:

I finally bought a bookshelf for my artbook, and rearranged a little bit my room.

On this photo you can see it, on the right. I put some new poster on my wardrobe. I hate hanging poster using glue because it can be dangerous when taking them down, and the patafix leave mark, so I used the patafix on some grip and tadaa... normally it shouldn't leave any mark. There is also my "phone books" still laminating stuffs...

On this one you can see the first page of my calendar, september / october ^^

( next thing I should buy is a car to get a bookshelf because it's heavy <.< )

ooo Neat stuffs everyone! Unfortunately most of my stuff is still packed away from the move, once we get things set up, with like shelves and stuff I will try to take pictures (or once I"m able to access the ones I have taken from my camera....)

Anyway, these are stock images of the things I got recently, it's not much, but I think they're shiny ^__^

I love the Black Mages, honestly it's the only group I'll put money into. Here is the track list for vol. 3
01. "Opening - Bombing Mission" [Final Fantasy VII]
02. "Neo EXDEATH" [Final Fantasy V]
03. "The Extreme" [Final Fantasy VIII]
04. "Assault of the Silver Dragons" [Final Fantasy IX]
05. "KURAYAMINOKUMO" [Final Fantasy III]
06. "Distant Worlds" [Final Fantasy XI]
07. "Premonition" [Final Fantasy VIII]
08. "Grand Cross" [Final Fantasy IX]
09. "Darkness and Starlight" [Final Fantasy VI] (Opera scene from 6)
10. "LIFE ~ in memory of KEITEN ~" [Original Composition]

I also got this recently:
Image
This manga series is so riduclously hard for me to find. It's not in any stores here anymore, Barnes and Noble used to have 1 and 2 (in fact that's where i got it) but after that, you had to special order it, and then they didn't even have it available at all. I managed to find #3 at Sakura-con one year, and had to order both 4 and 5 from the internet. I'm curious though...the publisher's website says that vol 6 will be rated 18+....but the others were just like Teen or something...>_>

Hopefully Tsukihime will hold me over until I get Hellsing Ultimate 4 and/or Hellsing 10 comes out.

Nice posters you have up Merun! Very ingenious solution to hang them up, considering the available space frames would be too hard & expensive (since you'd need many small ones).

Yeah well 85° Celcius load/stress temps were too high. Now it's under half that so that's good.
No need to feel guilty solwyvern! I switch to another one wallpeper for a few days now and then but usually go back to those awesome "Aria" wallpapers, though I would welcome any new ones you make!

Sorry I missed you at AWA Fuwari. We should really meet up next time! Are you going to Japan Fest this weekend?

I got that Chronicle artbook too as well as the only copy of Kei's Gallery they had at Sasuga Books. I'll post pics up later tonight. :D

Here are the pics of the Strike Witches / Mecha Musume figurines I've managed to acquire so far. Miyafuji Yoshika is in the mail and should be here sometime next week. I'll get pics when she arrives. (^_^)

All figurines are 1/9 scale.

Image

Image

* - This technically isn't Gertrud Barkhorn from Strike Witches. This character is from Humikane's original Mecha Musume series done for Konami. The differences are minor, but you can notice them. They include mecha ears instead of dog ears and feet-like bottoms on the bottom of the Striker Unit. Everything else including weapon, uniform, hair, pantsu, and tail are all Gertrud. It's pretty obvious that this was used as her base.

Image

I've actually had Lucchini for about a week now, but I never got pics. She came with ALOT of swappable parts including a rifle (pictured), Walther PPK handgun, two bayonets (knives), six different arms, and an extra set of Striker Unit bottoms that don't have the black base mounts so you can fly her around your room while making "WHOOOOSH" noises. :lol:

Image

Image

* - Despite being a 2008 release, this figurine's packaging didn't have any SW markings on it, so I assume that it's also a Mecha Musume character that was used for Strike Witches. This character is almost (if not) 100% like Anabuki Tomoko from one of the Strike Witches manga/novels. She also has an removable/interchangeable top which you may see here (boobies have been censored. lol)

Also, both Gertrud(*) and Tomoko(*) came with small artbooks that have three color illustrations each as well as story, their aircraft background, and weapon specifications. You can see a picture of the covers with the SW Official Artworks here.

Here are the other artbooks I managed to grab at the con. Kind of pricey, but well worth it. I have been looking for the Saikano book for two years now and finally found one with the bonus content (diary page & hologram board) so I was quite happy.

Image

Hiromi was cool enough to surprise me with Megami Deluxe Vol.11. I'd post pics, but my camera died just as I was about too. It has Clannad on the cover and quite a bit of good content. Not to mention a great poster. I'll get pics of it as well as Hiromi's swag this weekend. 8)

Nice loot people!

To the Figma owners, are Figmas really that much fun? They seem a bit to much like toys to me...

T_T T_T
I am torn to shreds.

I just found out about the Resinya Horo figurine made by Cospa. NOW AFTER SO MANY MONTHS.
I searched high and low in the internet and I am yet to find a place that has it.

Why am I posting here?

Anybody can give me a heads up on what I can do in these cases, besides crying and praying for a miracle to happen.

I REALLY REALLY want it and I would EAT A WHOLE cow if that is what it takes for me to be able to own this figurine.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried these places? They look like they have it (though I can't really guarantee their stock):
http://benippon.com/shop/product_info.p ... s_id=12919
http://www.animewild.com/product_info.p ... _id=300207

A bit of bad news, though; not only can I not find the figure on eBay, but I can't find it on the Japanese Yahoo! Auctions, either. ^^;;
