Photo Shoot 7 - Digimon Part 1

Posted by Electric Turahk , in Collecting Aug 10 2014 · 69 views
Digimon, Cool Stuff
A year later and man, I still freaking love Metalgarurumon. This is just one incredible figure.

So, here are some pictures I took before the move and am only now getting around to posting. :3 When Imperialdramon gets here next month, I do plan on taking some more.

Also Dukemon/Gallantmon and Omegamon/Omnimon. Because they look great together and imposing even just standing there. I am suuuuper pumped that Alphamon is the next Digimon (whenever he'll be officially announced and released is a concern though...) to add another Knight to my shelf. ^_^

ALL The Money! - July Haul

Posted by Electric Turahk , in Collecting, Video Games Jul 30 2014 · 93 views
Transformers, Nintendo and 3 more...
With my move came some newfound freedom and with that freedom I... may have gone a little overboard.

Posted Image
Alright, so... I finally started getting Transformers again! :) Of the bunch of Generations I've missed, really only Waspinator is left of recent waves that I'm mad I didn't get. With Skywarp I've finally completed a Seeker trio! And Armada Starscream is just cool to have. Now if I could have some luck and find a Rattrap, as they're hitting stores now apparently (and I've certainly got a lot to check here), I'll be a happy camper.

As for the Dinobots... Well, I never really wanted to collect the movie toys in the past. But come on, these are the freaking Dinobots! I got Scorn first and loved him so much that I wanted to get more. And I definitely plan on it. Still can't decide which version of Grimlock to go for though...

I also broke down and made a Mandarake for Figuarts order in what seems like has been forever. I was after Zangetsu to continue my Gaim collection, but thanks to their silly rules about fees under 5000 yen I just added the best thing I could find in that particular store for a reasonable price. And while I never wanted him too badly, I must say I am glad to say I now own the Weather Dopant. Definitely a cool choice for my first monster villain. And pair these two with the Transformers and you have one weird coincidentally color coordinated team of heroes and villains. :lol:

But here's the big thing I bought...
Posted Image
And maybe shouldn't have right away because then I got slammed with a bunch of bills. :|

But I wanted my free game with MK8 and darnit I was not buying the game before the system. I got Wind Waker HD, by the way. Only played MK8 so far but I'm sure enjoying it. It's such a pretty game too.

Man, looking back, I sure do like to spend a lot in July don't I?! Two years ago in July I even bought my last Nintendo console, the 3DS haha. Even I'm telling myself I should reign it in a bit for the next month, but boy is it more tempting than ever with so many places to look here..

Photo Shoot 6 - Collection Apartment Update!

Posted by Electric Turahk , in Reading, Video Games, Collecting Jul 26 2014 · 85 views
Bionicle, Transformers, Gaming and 2 more...
Well, let's get this one out of the way, shall we?!

A lot of is going to be familiar since I did bring the same shelves I had at home after all. But a good number of things did move around.

Let's start with the big picture:
Posted Image

I'm turning my spare bedroom into a man cave/study, slowly but surely. Right now its main attraction is the toy shelves. I've got a bunch of posters I want to get up eventually too. I also plan on eventually purchasing a desk to put in there, but for now the small second TV and Xbox 360 are just on the floor, opposite the shelves.

Then there's the entryway, which I showed off before. This you see right as you enter the apartment and I decided I primarily wanted all of my games and books there. Everything else just followed suit. The game-based figures just made sense, and the top shelf is just... where everything else I have went. But as I buy more games, that stuff's going to get displaced to the right, so I'm not too certain where it'll end up once that happens.

Lastly, a closer shot of my mantle (because for whatever reason I have a fireplace... in Texas). For now it's where I'll put my Minecraft stuff, as well as larger statues (so my preorder Arno will end up there one day, as well as The End once I get around to ordering it).

A closer look at the shelves...

Nothing's really changed with anime, except I broke Ace's left wrist. :( You can't see it here and I posed him to try and hide it... But man am I super disappointed by that. Anywho, this is going to be changing soon, though, once Naruto comes in. Figma Kirito is being rereleased too! He's preordered, as well as Figma Saber 2.0 and Archer. Sasuke was just revealed, so I'll be sure to get him once he's released as well... So it's going to definitely grow quite a bit throughout the rest of this year.

I am really happy to show off my Star Wars collection in full now. :) I've been gathering these book for a great many years... And despite the death sentence to the EU ( :( ), will still be trying to fill the gaps as I can. I still want to go to the bookstore very soon actually. Oh, and I think it's really cool to have all of my Black Series figures in front of them. That's going to be a slow expansion since they keep getting delayed, but some really cool new ones were revealed at SDCC, and the S.H. Figuarts planned will definitely be on my radar for future purchases.

There's a minor change here compared to the group shot above... But what's here is current as of this posting. I totally want to get more Dinobots though. And other Generations in the future for sure. These shelves and BIONICLE are why I really, really need to get another bookshelf still. I'd probably go for another of the 4 shelf ones like the middle one.

Posted Image
Posted Image

Ah, toku... There's also a few changes here compared to the wide shot, but will totally be harder to catch. This shelf is my biggest disappointment with the move. I loved the shelf I had at home to display them on (but now actually have a bit too many for that to be possible). And you just can't really see everybody that well. I am considering investing in risers, but I don't know where to look.

Posted Image

Next, there's the game section. The second shot is actually out-of-date as it's missing the brightly colored cases for the two WiiU games I picked up recently, but just imagine them being there after Brawl. :P

Anywho, I like how it worked out nicely that I had a place to put this all. The bottom shelf there is going to run out of room very quickly, though... Imperialdramon will be here soon and I only hope he fits in-between Omnimon and Gallantmon. But with Luigi and Mega Blaziken also out later this year, as well as who knows what else I decide to get... Things will have to move again. But I'll make it work. Regarldess, I do enjoy how it is now. They look so much better spread out like this than the big cluster I had at home on my dresser.

Finally, the BIONICLE update. And I managed to condense the number of shelves used! Somehow. Because that top one with the playsets, Jetrax, and tall Titans... That's a mess and only barely worked out. And I still need a lot more space. But I like having all of the little sets spread out more and closer to their relative canister sets. Just looks cooler to me.

So that's all for now! Totally open for questions, criticisms (because oh, I know I could do some of this better), and even picture requests! Just let me know. :)

Photo Shoot 5 - Apartment Tour

Posted by Electric Turahk , in Collecting, Video Games, Personal Jul 19 2014 · 126 views
Apartments, Living, Furniture and 1 more...
Huh, could have sworn I posted these here already... I was going to post another shoot today, but then I noticed I hadn't, so let's do this one first!

For those that don't know, I moved to Austin, TX on June 23rd. I'm now living on my own - truly on my own - for the first time and it's... quite a bit intimidating. But I'm enjoying work for the most part and found a pretty nice place to live. I've moved into a 2 bedroom/1.5 bath apartment in northern Austin that's close to both work and shopping. I'm pretty happy with it so far.

After finally getting most things set up how I want (still haven't hung some posters and frames), I decided to clean up a little and take some pictures. So here it is. :)

I didn't take pictures of absolutely everything, but here are the interesting parts... that aren't the second bedroom, which will slowly be transformed into a man cave. Stay tuned for more of that in an upcoming shoot. (That one being the one I planned on posting today, which the last picture here is also a teaser of. I just felt like including it here since it's the main entryway.) These were taken about two weeks ago, so are only slightly out-of-date... The only major difference is a WiiU on the TV stand now and the coffee table covered in junk. :lol:

So this is my place. I live here now.

I'm trying to not get excited...

But I think I'm getting excited.
