A big box showed up. It read, "www.hlj.com" in big bold letters. I slice it open with my trusty gunpla knife. And ….

Waku Waku!

I can’t bear to open the Evas yet. I’m holding out for the other 2 to arrive in about 2-3 weeks. Then we make WAR!! EVA WAR!! The Sei looks like crap though. It’s not Alter’s fault. Her design just sucks. Hard to believe she came from the same series as Jo and Meg eh? I have this big chinese vase that’s in her colour scheme so I’ll probably use that as a backdrop to take a few shots of Sei.

Henrietta isn’t my favourite GS girl, but she’ll do. Interestingly, I don’t particularly fancy any of the GS girls, but I like Pinnochio. If I had to choose one, it’ll probably be either Triela or the megane girl.

    I was thinking of getting the Henrietta figure, but it occured to me that I didn’t like her a whole lot, and the pose wasn’t really… you know, dynamic. It felt stale and really lacked any of the mystique of the show. But, I nitpick like that.

    I had my worries about the Sei figure, thanks for confirming them.

    Henrietta looks good and I want those EVA models.

    Triela kicks ass. Best girl out of the bunch.

    And what’s with the “waku waku” creature/thing? I’ve seen it in a bunch of your posts now, and I have no idea where you got it from. And when’s that post on Last Exile coming? You keep promising it, but don’t deliver (hate to call you out on that one, but I’ve been waiting for months now).

    Michael you have to click on some of the older posts to find out the evolution of the Riuva Mascot, Tripeman. Waku waku is Japanese for excited. Just click on the About Tripeman page up there.

    As for Last Exile, damn. When I last rewatched it up till episode 18, the rest of the eps were corrupted. And now a month or so on, the momentum has been lost and I’ve not been able to continue till the end and still remember clearly what happened in the earlier episodes. As it stands, there are a lot of other things to talk about so I’m putting LE on hold. At least till I have a stretch of free time to watch from the start yet again.

    Just curious. I notice you procure from HLJ even though these figures are available locally. Is it more economically this way, even with shipping? Still wondering if I should try HLJ on my next purchase…

    It’s cheaper than Latendo and most of the stores at Sunshine Plaza. It may not be cheaper than what you may get at CSC but there is super confirmation that you’ll get what you ordered. No store here can guarantee that.

    Also, I use credit card to pay for my HLJ purchases. I’m not old enough to have a supplementary card so if I buy from stores, I have to pay by cash, which is very stressful.

    During this busy season, the shipping costs are very low because everything is shipped together. For the four items above. I paid about 1000 yen shipping.

    I’m sure there are cheaper ways of getting the stuff but taking into account reliability, convenience, price I stick with HLJ.

    Thanks so much for the info! Will try a batch order sometime soon.
