It has been a very long time for any figure photography. Not surprising with work taking me away from home, any time I have is spent handling urgent overdue tasks. With this, I hope to begin clearing the backlog that has steadily been building.
I am glad I don’t have a deadline for such small projects as they are more for distraction from the many things driving me up the wall. Not many shots for this shoot, but I thought it might be interesting to try to do something with the photos and hopefully brush up on my other skills in the process.
This one has been waiting for a long time to shoot. Asuka test plugsuit by Alter. The figure is magnificently crafted, to top it up, the paintjob has a glossy look to them.
Although if you already have one too many Asuka figures (I have 6 of them so far), I think you can safely skip this one because getting would just be a little crazy (But if you already have it, why stop there? ) . As there are other better ones especially from the latest movie – this one is base on the second one.
Yeah, this is the only 2 shots I felt I managed to accomplished something good with.
The rest were just boring.
Moving on, we have my latest piece from Japan. Luckily I managed to score this little beauty from Nippon Yassan when other website were already sold out. Plus it was cheaper and customer service was great.
I had absolutely no idea from what anime this little piece was from and didn’t bother looking it when I placed the pre-order – it was simply beautiful! The detail and craftsmanship was just wonderful, I HAD to own it.
It was also a good thing it was under RM500, because Malaysia started to charge GST (Goods and Service Tax) for anything imported into the country costing more than RM500 (this figure was RM350++ inclusive of shipping).
Tried a black and white variation. I can never decide which one to post so trying both and see what works.
That’s all for today. Will have more material here when I can.
