This is the package I just received from HobbyLink Japan. What you see on top of the box is literally all that was in there.
Granted, I didn't even know Bandai was sending out these faces for everything that ordered the figure. Which is awesome, since every single picture of him on the box uses the face, yet the figure was missing it entirely... And HLF shipped it - EMS, no less - for seemingly free. But if it weren't for free I wouldn't have even bothered. That's why I'm so glad Figuarts are starting to show up on Amazong a whole lot more often, because it's what's enticing me to order them. Shipping from from overseas is pretty expensive. And when the box you get is more often than not filled with just air, paper, or bubblewrap - I'm firmly convinced you're getting ripped off in some way.
Granted, most of this comes from observation of others rather than experience - though I have indeed experienced it. So yeah. This is my complaint of the day.
I still can't believe I was one of the people contacted to try and set this up here. I know we're a little late, but that happens when you don't have much warning. Next year, I'm sure it'll be even easier.
My only concern now is having people actually want to participate as they're walking by. And, of course, finding a way to get online so I can keep working on ranking up in Halo: Reach.
Right now I plan on playing Reach for much of today, and into the night I'm going to break out Dead Space 2. For those who haven't played it, it's iiiinfinitely better played at night. And if my awareness wanes during even that, I'll have my laptop to break out Minecraft - I can lose hours of time so easily with that game haha. And I'll probably play some SSBM/B, since I'm sure we'll have both. Maybe some Mario Party. And I'll have my DS in case the Pokemon club people actually show up (they're conveniently having a "LARP" simulating challenging gyms and beating the Pokemon League this weekend - yay lol).
Soooo yeah. Now to get through my last class - and probably eat something for the first time today. That's important for this I suppooooose. But at least we'll have food there too.
And oh yeah... You can still donate!
I finally got my first Kamen Rider S.H. Figuart, and if I could sum him up in one word it would be "beautiful." Seriously, the amount of detail in this figure is phenomenal.
The only complaint I would have is that the packaging is rather beat up and doesn't really close properly (and actually had a lot of dust on it o_O), but I can forgive that. After all, I did get this with free shipping haha.
So yeah. I'm reeeeally tempted to get Dark Kiva, Ixa, and Rising Ixa (though he's an exclusive and will be uber expensive. ). Really wish now that they hadn't seemingly cancelled Saga so I could complete the Kiva lineup.
Or maybe I should get a Den-O next. ...UGH. Rabbit holes. XD

So you wanna know what's awesome?
Running a club at a large university.
Some of my best days this semester - football games aside - have been during our club meetings. Some of my best friends here were made in getting involved with the club. And to top it all of, we're a gaming club, so everything we do is sure to be fun.
But since we actually wanted to do something meaningful, and I was even contacted directly to set this up, we've been working a whole lot on doing some charity work... Specifically, we've set up an Extra Lifegaming marathon. Now, Extra Life was officially yesterday, but since that was our homecoming, it's this coming weekend.
I never knew preparing to play video games for 24 straight hours could be so stressful!
That said, I'm looking forward to it a whole lot. I just hope we get some good attendance. And that I find sooomething to occupy my time with other than Halo.
I kept on collecting.
Rather, I started collecting against, since 2009/most of 2010 killed my collecting interest in BIONICLE.
I've been working on finishing my BIONICLE collection and have reentered the world of Transformers. Man, Classics ones are expensive, but that's what I'm working on.
I also got interested in Kamen Rider, so wouldn't be surprised if I buy a few S.H. Figuarts of my favorite Riders soon. Already bought the 4 current One Piece S.H. Figuarts.
So any other Kamen Rider fans out there?
And I'm turning in my leave of absence paperwork today. I don't know why, but I'm actually really sad about it... I know I'm welcomed back whenever I have a break and next summer of course, but still... I made some friends there I didn't expect to (and tragically lost one last year), and even though there are some pretty bad days, I still enjoy it there.
Just another side effect of college...
