When news that the VF-25S was going to be re-released, I quickly searched for a used set online before prices would shoot up to crazy levels. It still wasn’t cheap, but the price is probably reasonable compared to current levels. Either way, it’s still kinda dumb when the add-on set costs way more than the main figure itself.
This thing was sealed and even came with the original shipping box.

Thanks to my topsy-turvy life this month I didn’t have time to settle down and take pictures of my acquired holy grail last week. It’s quite a long story though, maybe I’ll leave it for the end of the post or something.
This time round I managed to squeeze out enough time during my rest. My new room doesn’t really have much table space so I had to move a lot of stuff away just to set up the background. I only have enough natural light in the morning, and the rest of the time I had to rely on a tripod instead.
As this is mostly a recolour of the VF-25F which I reviewed earlier, I’ll skip on a lot of things and jump straight to pictures.

Following this post in which I mentioned I managed to get in a preorder at HLJ, they dropped the ball and being the desperate idiot that I was, I went to buy one off Amazon instead.
Life has been pretty topsy-turvy since I moved to Fukuoka. There isn’t any internet in my dorm room and I had to rent a pocket wi-fi dongle. It doesn’t have great reception but it doesn’t have a data cap and has kept me sane this past month while I wait for the cable guys to come and install the necessary infrastructure so that I can have some proper internet. Also, I’ve been made to do shift work for about a month as part of my training program. I’m not exactly doing any work but it’s still making my body clock a mess, and things like weekends don’t apply to me for now.
I’ll try to do up a review as soon as I’m free. I usually post on Sundays, like today, but I’m leaving for work soon – doing the night shift tonight.
I’ve been a huge fan of the Megaman series of games and particularly liked the Zero and ZX series even though opinions on them were divisive. This time, Bandai has rendered the MMZ version of Zero as a Tamashii Web exclusive figure as a rival to the existing Kotobukiya plastic kit which seemed to be a disappointment, and the rare garage kit only found during Wonder Festival.

Continuing from Part 1, this time with the figure in its battle-damaged appearance which it took on in most of the movie.

Big boys come out and play
This was an impulse purchase from almost a year ago. It was supposed to be released in July and the first batch seemed to have some serious QC issues. I got mine in September through Amiami which ridiculously overcharges on foreign toys. Apparently it is now unable to sell Hot Toys stuff so while there is no more convenient avenue for me to destroy my wallet it also means goodbye to crazy prices.

The latest design in the Iron Man movies turned out to be polarising as some people weren’t a fan of the balance between gold and yellow and perhaps because it played a rather comical role due to being an incomplete suit within the story. However I quite liked its mechanical appearance with the panel detail all over.
