The package arrived nearly two weeks ago on a Wednesday. I had to take a bus to pick it up because no one was home to sign for it. I was really worried because it was a rainy day but thankfully by the time I got it, it was just foggy. Damp, but not raining.
I grabbed my cutter and my Nikon and snapped a bunch of photos to commemorate the box opening. Brought out Haruhi and Tsuruya to greet a new Nendo comrade. Thanks again to Danny and Hobby Link Japan for Nendoroid Ryoko Asakura!
The moment I pulled out the plastic thingy that holds the Nendoroid and the various extra parts, I realized that it will take a long time for me to get each of them out. If you click on the image to see the larger version, you’ll see that there’s a twisty wire holding Ryoko down. Took me around 10-15 minutes trying to untwist it till I gave up and cut it off with my blade.
The reason why I chose this Nendoroid was because it was a set. I don’t have Yuki nor Mikuru which is a bit of a waste, but I do have Haruhi and, well, the hat and the cape look really cute on Miku. ^_^ My only problem is that I have to remove her arms for her to fit in it. XD
Ryoko had a lot of plastic wrapping. Over her skirt, under her ears, under her hair, over her chest, over the rest of her body and one over her entire length… I think that was it. I figured that it was to avoid paint transfer, and as I eventually learned, I was right.
Took me a long time to post because I just started work at SimplyCast.Com. Learning a lot and having lots of fun but it drains all my energy and at the end of the day I just want to sleep. Anyway, will be posting a review of the entire set and some illustration updates (sorry for the really long wait!).
On a different note, I’ve been taking Japanese lessons during the weekends. Basically I can introduce myself, ask and tell the time, ask for directions, give some directions and ask how much stuff are XD
K, I hope that’s right XD Let’s try it in Spanish!
Hola mis amigos y amigas!
