Anime Figure Review: Zoro POP Sailing Again

Anime Figure Review: Zoro POP Sailing Again

About a year ago, I decided to undertake the daunting task of reading all of One Piece. With the help of my local library system, I was able to quickly read through up to the most recent story arc, of which I now need to wait to borrow any more. That being said, I ended up really enjoying the series!

The figure lines featuring characters from the series span far and wide. Collecting everything is near impossible, and finding older figures sometimes proves pretty daunting. I discovered the Sailing Again line by Megahouse while browsing the internet about 70% through my journey reading the manga, and I decided that was the best line for me to own some figures from.

At the end of the day, I chose Nico Robin and Roronoa Zoro to purchase.

Zoro arrived recently, so I wrote up a review for him.

Anime Figure Review: Spike Spiegel ARTFX J

Anime Figure Review: Spike Spiegel ARTFX J

I’m starting a new post series all about reviewing anime figures and other related things. I don’t buy a ton of figures, but you can see pretty much everything I own on my MyFigureCollection page.

For my first review, I’ll be talking about the Spike Spiegel ARTFX J by Kotobukiya. This was a long awaited figure for me, as Cowboy Bebop was always one of my favorite series, but I never owned any merchandise for it save for a tiny Faye Valentine gashapon figure.

Skoshbox Review August 2017

Skoshbox Review August 2017

This month’s box arrived a little later than last month’s, to no surprise. I was pretty wary about delivery times when Tokyo Otaku Mode/Skoshbox had shifted over to shipping from Japan directly, as I stated last review. The box was too beat up to even take a picture of, so it’s not here this time. Thankfully, only one snack inside was completely crushed, and it didn’t taste great to me anyway so it wasn’t a big loss.

Moving on to the review:

Skoshbox Review July 2017

Skoshbox Review July 2017

As you may or may not have noticed, I didn’t get around to doing a Skoshbox review last month. The box wasn’t anything special, though, so you weren’t missing out on much!

The way Skoshbox (or Tokyo Otaku Mode) has shipped out their boxes to its customers has changed starting this month, so the timing on these reviews won’t be nearly as consistent as it used to be. (Though it was never super consistent in the first place, heh.) The boxes are coming directly from Japan to the United States via SAL, which is very inconsistent but usually slow. I order SAL items fairly often and sometimes they come in two weeks, others a month.

So, I can’t guarantee when reviews will come out, but I hope that they are within the first half of the month. I’d hate to have multiple boxes to review at once!

Anyway, to the review for July 2017!

Skoshbox Review May 2017

Skoshbox Review May 2017

Apologies for being a tad late on this, but I had gotten a little distracted with other things.

This box is special, too, since it’s all Glico brand goodies! The sunglasses were an extra bonus, and they say Pocky on the sides.

Skoshbox Review April 2017

Skoshbox Review April 2017

(Featuring my kitten, Legolas!)

I tossed the booklet from this box in the trash after eating the snacks this month, which I usually don’t do until I’ve written up the review. So, the names of the snacks might be the slightest bit off here, as I have to look over my notes now and hope that I wrote something coherent for everything. Oops!
