FF XIII-2 is due to release this December and the 2011 E3 video released on Tuesday is just freaking awesome but that metal breastplate looked kinda weird with the feathers!

I forgot to publish this post and Saber’s been kept in a (very) Distant Avalon for some time … actually, she’s just been sitting in a corner of my folder for almost a year now and I’ve conveniently forgot about her . . . Now I don’t remember much of what I wanted to talk about anymore except that I oddly remember the pain when I photographing her. Yes am still living in a shoebox (same one) and space was an issue and lightning was bad but yeah I could blame a million things except myself haha! its no wonder she’s got that angry look on her face..
Anyhoos, its time I do some justice to her…
8th day of Christmas (sorry no maido san milking ) and a Happy New Year !
It’s the dawn of a new year and I just made some crazy resolution including “Die Happy” and then I start to wonder if I should even try achieving that one this year! LOL. Anyhoos, Nekoguchi’s resolution is of cos getting more updates and growing this space! (Monetizing it seems too far fetched for now but I hope to keep everyone’s eyes scrolling for more!) What ever it is, here’s some back dated peektures I took of Kureha and Saber Lily Nendoroid over the X’mas season which were also featured over at Gordonator – cos Neko’s down and so the trooper picked up the kitty and posted it there..
This is it! The epitome of procrastination has struck again! I admit. This is very late! Air Gear’s Ringo Noyamano’s actually my friend’s figure, who asked me to help him snap her up (before Chinese New Year in January) so that he can ogle at Ringo secretly on screen and keep the fig safely tucked under his comforter at night. Anyhow Ringo’s the second figure that the Kanaru post mentioned – Yes I know, its majorly overdue!!!
By the way it’s NSFW so click when you think you’re clear of beady eyes from a 5 year old, blinking innocently up at you from behind while you let your eyes roam shamelessly across the screen admiring the curvature of certain aspects. LOL
Another airbrushed Gundam 00 that’s worth mentioning. Last year I received my baby and Zinc airbrushed it white for me. Totally loved that but the guy who did the above – I kudos to him. He ( I assumed its a He) created his own decals to scale using Illustrator, then painstakingly pritnted and attached them to his 1/44 masterpiece. Heck it comes with glow in the dark parts as well. Check out how he did it and what colours he used at his site. It’s in Japanese though.. but you can get it easily translated at one of those online translation sites. The author mentioned that its really worth all the hard work and effort – spoken by a true fan!
More pictures after the jump.
My friend recently told me that he’d be entrusting me two of his precious babies and asked me to take care of them. For a moment, that scary image of wailing babies squeezed its way into my grey cells followed by the horrible image of me flushing the babies down the toilet bowl. Turned out, his babies are made of plastic.
Living as a 貧乏binbou (sounds suspiciously like “bimbo”) means I have to understand what my wallet is going through and can’t splurge to feed my otaku fetish. . . And so I’ve missed the Cosplay summit in Nagoya, and the Wonder Festival here in Tokyo cos its not free admission. LOL.
I went to the Gundam EXPO yesterday though partly cos admission is free and its near where I’m staying. Trust me you’ll get kinda lazy wanting to go out in this dreaded weather even though its summer holidays now, but the force was calling me (and it was too great to overcome).
Anyway here are the drool bits from the event. I must admit I’m just a Gundam supporter ..not a die hard, hard core fan (yet) so I went there with only erm 40% knowledge of what’s going on.

Slice Cheese (Strike Witches Opening – Limited Edition)
I’ve been watching Strike Witches and find the OP song (Watashi ni Dekiru Koto by Ishida Youko) a “power-up” especially at the start of a school/work day. Did some curious runs through YouTube and found this sliced cheese made from a string of over 2000 shots, in just 12 days! Loved the way the “Slice Cheese” pun was added into the scene at the time stamp of 0.27 and the Gundam fight scenes are just way too smooth! Comes with gunfire and smoke!.
I tried to do something like this with Evangelion’s OP on Flash some many years back but it turned out to be a total failure. This 3D version is way cooler!
After experimenting with Koto’s Kureha, I’ve pretty much stopped toying with my figs. I bought this poised Uesugi Kenshin from the Sengoku Rance series the moment it was released way back in April but I haven’t had the chance to photo her till now. Ought to get back to it some time.
So after they’ve tried sticking studs on fake nails, eyelashes & cool gadgets, you think they’ve got nothing else to plaster glitter on right? Wrong! These really macho machines are the latest victims! Now I know diamonds are a girl’s best friend. . . but this I think… is a little too bling and definitely on the wrong target -.-!
I chanced upon Kotobukiya’s release of Kureha, bought her on impulse and the rest was history. . . Well not exactly history. Started photographing and experimenting with feathers. Was trying to get that heavenly, slightly over exposed look but it was already dark and I had terrible lightning in da house. I sent a couple to Zinc and he gave them a complete cosmetic surgery. It turned out gorgeous! So have decided to begin and end them with, in this post together with a “new” gallery for easier viewing.

We’ve seen an increase in modified gundams, but people are getting into the mood of modifying revoltech danbos too! At first glance, I thought this was another one of those heavily cosmetic uplifted peektures like the white Gundam Exia. But then now I think it’s literally 5 danbos in one.
I’ve got a request from fellow Zinc to share his recent bad pre-order experience here. Just a thought to customer service for the locals here. The below is exasperated by Zinc.
Clain Clain, heroine of Idea Factory’s RPG game “Generation of Chaos IV,” was crafted into this magnificently detailed PVC display piece from Atelier-sai! In her full armor with her broadsword “Dragon Slayer” she measures about 20cm tall (in other words – 1/8 scale). A round display base is included for her to stab her dragon slayer into some piece of environment rock. Though I don’t particularly like how her hair turned out under the lights – too plasticly I simply lurveeee that adorable plaster on her cheek ~(^.*)~
I’m the murderer! I’ve basically minced, blended, creamed, clobbered, and KO’ed my figz to Kingdom come!
Because I’m about to move, many of my friends have SUDDENLY bothered to clear a space in their cluttered homes and offered to house my figures for me so I’d have fewer boxes to take care of (how nice). . . . Well, bad news is. . .I’ve decided to kill them all! If I can’t have them, so can’t you! *evil laff*
And so my unofficial guide to ways of disposing my plastics started:

Ignis, also known as Igunis, is a character from another nottie game called Jingai Makyo: Chaos Gate. She was supposed to be a Japanese elf with a common hatred for monsters (oooh what’s new?) Whatever and wherever she’s from, she has proved her figurine worth to have four manufactures produce their own version.
I’m shifting out of my house by February next year and every thing’s a mess with cardboard boxes all over the place. I’ve actually kept all my photography stuff but when my friend handed me something similar to THIS cardboard box, I simply can’t help but whip out my camera and start shooting.
