Magical Mystery - March Haul

Figuarts Wizard Kamen Rider
Well, only one thing arrived in time for this month's haul pic. But I've got plenty more on the way already.

This is the figure I alluded to in an earlier blog post about a purchase being disappointing. Allow me, please, to explain that. It's an import figure and rather than buying from a Japanese outlet, I chose to support the US distributor in this instance. However, it took a little longer than usual for their stock to get in, which was rather frustrating when nothing was being said on it. When it does finally ship, I get it just two days later - gotta love Amazon prime. But the box it arrived in? Take a look at this beauty:

This didn't contribute to it being disappointing, I just found it hilarious that they sent my one small item in this massive box. :lol:

But what Amazon did screw up - and this goes for everybody who got this figure from them - is forgetting a first run bonus effects part. I'm firmly in the camp that believes this part should've just been packed in with the figure to begin with rather than packed separately (and also excluded from future production runs... but still). So it being forgotten is most annoying. Fortunately, I've contacted Bluefin and should have a replacement on its way to me shortly.

But that was the main cause of the frustration. Oh, and the figure's waist connection designed so his torso pops off far, far too easily. While it's cool we can change his robes (...which of course the missing part is an alternate robe...), it's upsetting that it came essentially at the cost of waist articulation.

Anywho, enough ranting and rambling! That's all I've got for this month. But next month will have some BIONICLE goodies. :)
