Someone was boasting about his room. So here’s an extra post for today, to add to the topic.

I remember having a major spring cleaning just weeks ago. Looks like it didn’t work. I remember posting pictures of it a while back. Time for an update I guess. Maybe I need Misaki to clean it up for me.

Upon opening the door, your right foot will be adjacent to seven Playarts figures and Police Rei (unreviewed). And hawt School Rumble posters.

New Camera! W0000 POWER!

These pictures were taken under crap fluorescent lighting even the Powershot S3 IS couldn’t get good pics under. The power of 30,000 dollars.

Actually, my office bought a truck load of new equipment. We have 2 Canon EOS-30Ds, about 8 lenses and two Powershot S3s. I’m going to steal them for figurine use of course. Look at the pretty pretty wide angles… and such nice colours even under horrible lighting. Pity we don’t have Danny Choo’s favoured 10-22mm super wide angle, or 18mm macro.

After getting this, I realised how bad my old Fuji Z-2 was. To think I got it just half a year ago too.. it was a bad choice then. For a similar price, the range of features and picture quality of the Ixus 800 totally rapes the Z-2. While I would’ve liked a dSLR of course, the money source came with a catch - only small cameras allowed.

Important relevant features to figurine photography:

  • 2 cm Macro
  • Multiple colour modes that add a range of colour styles
  • A tripod that actually attaches to the body of the camera and not some shitty docking device

Advanced Shipping Method for Figurines

This may not be new since it was introduced a year or so back. But Singpost has this Vpost service that gives you an address in Japan to deliver your goods to. They then consolidate and ship it to your doorstep. Simply put, this is ownage and solves a lot of problems, although I have yet to use it. Obviously, non-Singaporean readers can just skip the rest of the article.

The Vpost website.

Let me just briefly describe how it works.

Step 1: Shop and pay at your favourite Japanese websites. EVEN IF THEY SHIP ONLY TO JAPANESE ADDRESSES.

As promised, here are the pictures of my Happy Red Mecha Family.


Front View: Through this picture, I noticed for the first time that Speed Grapher and Traveller have different shades of red. Btw Cocoon looks exactly like the back of Speed Grapher. And yes, Cocoon has started to break apart. It is an MP3 player made of glass… literally.




Which is your boy/girlfriend?
