Assassin's Nation: October Haul
Assassins Creed Tiger & Bunny Kamen Rider Pokemon
First up, the obvious one:
Pokémon Y. Still playing it and finding new things to (still haven't caught Zapdos and Mewtwo, for example). Just now I'm going to be more focused on AC4 heh. Expect the blog reuploads and a new PokeLog entry soon.
Next, Tamashii time!
Lot more than I expected. In fact, as of the beginning of the month I only saw myself getting Wizard Infinity Style. Who is gorgeous, by the way, and I'm so glad my problems with the original Flame Style had been fixed by now. But Blade ended up being obnoxiously popular and thus fetching a high price on the aftermarket, so couple that with the US release still having open preorders and it being the series I'm currently watching and enjoying, albeit slowly, and I felt I couldn't pass him up. And it helps he's basically a perfect figure. The only problem was the playing cards on his weapon all stickers... on both sides... That was a chore to do.
Finally, I finally got a Barnaby to go with my Wild Tiger. I only wish I had Tiger here to pose them together. Oh and Lunatic, because he rounds out the core three SHFs I wanted from Tiger & Bunny. ShukuenShinobi had/is having a massive sale of his collection and I couldn't pass these two up at the prices they were at. I'm really happy I didn't either. Although there's a lot more characters to truly complete the cast, I'm pretty much happy with who I have now (although a Blue Rose wouldn't hurt...).
Hello Assassin's Creed. I didn't realize how much I missed you in my life.
The new hidden blade is... alright. The entire blade this time is rubber instead of just the tip, but don't let that fool you - I've drawn blood twice with this thing. It sits much closer to the wrist than the original NECA one, almost too close, and it's very easy to accidentally catch yourself on it.
The flag on the very left is a high quality actual flag I got from Penn State's Ubisoft rep. I have the nylon one that came with the Collector's Edition already up on display, but that's only because the cloth one is so much bigger. I haven't figure out where to put it yet. The statue that came with the Collector's Edition... Oi vey. That was a pain to put together. The connection points on the mast were just too tight. But then of course there's the rope that you have to tie yourself. That was a little annoying, but at least I'm happy with how I got it to look in the end.
I've barely played the game, though. I've just been so busy! In fact, right after I finish writing this, I'm getting back to some homework first. What I have played I loved, especially the beginning with Edward. The modern-day content... wow that got meta and weird very fast. I wish it was more of a focal point than the intentionally-made brief content it's said to be, because exploring Abstergo as an employee sounds fun. Oh well, we'll see what happens there.
