Being perpetually short on money, I have been resisting the urge to buy anything not necessary to my survival but I am finding it increasingly difficult to do so. The last figure I bought was the GOOD SMILE COMPANY 1/8 Takamachi Nanoha to complement my ALTER 1/8 Fate Testarossa. I really like those two but the lack of any new figures is saddening.
After seeing the Max Factory 1/8 Sawatari Makoto next to the matching Max Factory 1/8 Tsukimiya Ayu, I knew I had to pre-order my copy before every other Key fan on the intertubes beat me to it. The pose is simply amazing and looks exactly the same as the opening of Kanon (2006).The problem now is that I need to get my hands on Ayu and my only option at the moment is through eBay so I need to figure out what to do about that. In addition, I need to somehow justify these purchases so that I don’t feel bad about diverting college funds to my hobbies. I really need a (summer) job at a place like Michael’s since I basically know where everything is already and I could get a discount on my (expensive) art supplies.
So that I am not just complaining about money matters, I would also like to mention a figure that I would like to be made. Of course, the obvious choice for me would be the rest of the Kanon girls by Max Factory but aside from that, my next choice is Yagami Hayate. I like Nanoha and Fate but the each have like 5 figures while poor Hayate has none. Even Reinforce Zwei has a pretty nice figure. I just want a 1/8 scale Hayate, preferably A’s version, to complete my Nanoha trinity.
Also, since my Spring Break has started, I’ll try sculpting my own figure after finishing all the character draft work on the Imperium Project since the deadline is March 10, the Monday classes resume. I’ll probably make one of one of my own original characters or one from the Imperium Project but I don’t know how it will turn out since I have always been better at 2-D art than 3-D.
