FumoFumo Touhou Plushies GET

fumofumo-reimu-marisa-front

After waiting over a month, I finally I received my plushies. The plushies in question are the Touhou Nuigurumi FumoFumo Reimu and FumoFumo Marisa by Gift. Since I couldn’t find them in stock anywhere and because I was so desperate to get them, I went through Shopping Mall Japan for the first time ever so that I could bid on a pair on Yahoo Auctions Japan. I ended up spending 10,000+ yen on 2 plushies that each cost 2,625 yen originally but they are so worth it.

Why was I so desperate to get them? After seeing pictures of other peoples Touhou plushies, I realized that despite Touhou being possibly my favorite thing ever, I didn’t own a single piece of physical merchandise; everything I have has been downloaded from the interwebs. Technically even though I ordered these first, they are my second pair of Touhou stuff after my Reimu and Marisa folding fans that I got for Christmas.

Here’s Reimu by herself.

And here’s Marisa. The quality of both is fantastic and the details are just right.

For example Marisa’s removable hat is a nice touch by Gift.

Since I thought it would be funny, I had Reimu and Marisa take a picture with some of my other plushies. Reimu is riding on a giant squid I bought at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center while Marisa is atop Mikoto from Mai-Otome. To give a sense of scale, you can also see my iM@S: L4U game case propping up Reimu.

Gift will also be releasing two more ANGELTYPE-designed Touhou plushies, Remilia Scarlet and Izayoi Sakuya, next month. Luckily for me, I got my preorders in just in time before they all sold out though I will have to wait until February when they will be in stock at where I ordered.

I really hope that Gift will continue to produce more Touhou plushies in the future. Among others I really want to see Alice and Yukari the most. If we add Youmu and Yuyuko, then I can have some Imperishable Night action going on.

I know that this isn’t going to happen but I think I really should try to limit all my otaku purchases from now on to Touhou, iM@S, Key and Seventh Expansion nonsense.

    Oh lucky you (ouchie 10k yens), I tried to get the raymoo and mari plushies but they always were out of stock.
    I hope I’ll be able to get one during the January restock.

    On the other hand, I was lucky enough to be able to pre-order the Sak and Remi ones :3

    Yahoo Japan auction is so annoying that they only take a VISA card with a JP address
    I had to pay 5000¥ in fees for a wire transfer last time
    You know of a better way to pay?
    Remilia plushie would be nice to have.

    Potato´s last blog post..A few Touhou CDs arrived today

    @Alan: I was just lucky. As soon as I found Sakuya and Remilia for sale I knew I had to put my orders in right away or else they would be gone in a day and I was right.

    @nyoronyolo: Hopefully you can get Raymoo and LasaMari second runs but at least you have Sakuya nd Remi already waiting.

    @Zeroblade: Reimu’s not amused/where’s my donations face is awesome.

    @Potato: I used a Visa for my order too but it was a check card and not credit card. Commission, shipping and wire fees together totaled about $50 US so it that’s roughly 5000 yen. I’m not really sure of any other ways to pay besides using a proxy bidding service like Shopping Mall Japan or having a friend/family member living in Japan bid/pay for you.

    I want the Marisa + Alice Plushie at a decent price so, so bad ;–;
    Anyone who can help that’d be great.

    where is the best place to get them at a fair price.
    or if you’re selling yours o3o

    1. Honya

      Unfortunately most places I’ve seen are selling them for a lot since the older ones are out of production I believe. The best prices I’ve seen are on eBay. Sorry I couldn’t help that much.

    […] I know I’m linking to an ancient (in terms of Internet time) post, but you should check out these touhou plushies this person managed to get, included the Remilia Scarlet plushy picture as but one of the many shown in the post. Linkage: Plushies! […]
