Beauty & the Beast Brickheadz

Brickheadz is an interesting line that Lego has come up with.  The designs can be pretty cute in their chubby, block form.  I was tempted to buy one but the current line-up are either Marvel, DC Comics or Disney, and I wasn’t that interested in any of them, save for maybe Robin Hood?  Only because he looked cute with his goggles, haha.  Anyway, parents went holidays to north Europe and came back with Lego from Denmark.  I… guess I don’t mind?  I like Lego anyway!  They got me Belle and the Beast.

Gachapon & Sylvanian Families

I guess you could call this a mini haul of sorts… I bought a few Sylvanian Families sets a couple of weeks back when there was a discount sale happening at a JP department store.  They’re only figure sets though.  And then I also went to look at gachapon machines as I haven’t done that for a while.

So let’s start with the gachapon.  I came across a gachapon of… miniature gachapon machines.  Yes!

Tokyo Trip Haul

My wallet weeps.

I swear, with each time I go to a Disney theme park, I spend more?  But then it’s most likely because Japanese Disney merchandise is more to my taste than American merchandise, and HKDL goods lie somewhere between the two.  Japanese Disney goods are too cute!  And then I had to visit a Disney Store since the merchandise they stock there aren’t available within the theme parks, and vice versa.  I also visited Kiddy Land and Mega Tokyo Pokemon Center too!  My poor wallet…  I didn’t get to spend much time at Tokyu Hands, otherwise my wallet would’ve bled more.

Hmm, messy haul photo… and I probably shouldn’t have used a red background but that’s my bed sheets at the moment, heh.

Kyoto / Osaka Trip Loot

I went to Japan back in April for a week or so and spent 4 days at Kyoto, 1 day in Nara and 2.5 days at Osaka.  I spent… more than I should have.  And having a credit card on me only helped that money vortex spin more easily.  =’D  Most of it was splurged when I returned to Osaka since Kyoto and Nara had a lot more sight seeing activities.  Nevertheless, I still dropped over 10,000 JPY at Pokemon Center Kyoto on the first day.  Hm.

Without further ado, let’s start the photo spam!

Too much stuff to try and organise them neatly for an overall loot photo, oops.

Totoro paper art

160328_F4317

I’ve had this paper art kit for over a year and I have finally made it.  Ah yes, fish being lazy as per usual.  This is from Sankei’s miniatuart paper kits and I’ve never really made one before.  Parts of this kit also included fake grass/greenery which I also never used before.  Kinda odd considering I went through 5 years of architecture school but using fake greenery like that was banned in the first year, heh.

Time to do what I do best and spam photos!

Re-ment: Gudetama & 80’s Nostalgia

I rarely buy entire sets of re-ment miniatures – usually just a box or two from each series but then lately I started to buy entire sets… though it’s just been two sets so far.  Hm.  80’s nostalgia and school goods stationary sets because miniatures are too adorable.  The latter set I’ll be making a separate blog entry for it later.  I was also eyeing this gudetama set, gudetama meets danger, and wondering if I should buy the entire set or just get a box or two but then boyfriend ended up buying it for me… aaahhh @.@  So this entry will be photos of both the gudetama and 80’s nostalgia sets!  I hope I can control myself and not go too crazy with buying more full re-ment sets…
