My Nendoroid Puchi has arrived on Wednesday after a few weeks since its released in Japan. I ordered it from a Malaysian-based figurine seller. The price was reasonable and I don’t have to worry about having to deal with the customs. Customs and currency exchange rates are the reasons I’m not very keen on buying figurines from well-known international sites.
By the way, I bought these from Dinokun.com Otaku House. He’s (I think it’s a he?) a very efficient, friendly and trustworthy seller. I recommend him to anyone who wants to buy anime figurines in Malaysia and who are like me – doesn’t want to deal with customs and whatnot. He’s also available at Lowyat Forum under the nickname porkchop. Just so you know, I recommend this seller willingly – without any special treatment or whatnot from the seller.
This set of Nendoroid Puchi have 12 little K-ON! girls. Five in swimsuit and five in uniform. An extra Azusa in swimsuit but very tanned. And the secret item! This is my first time opening up a box containing that much figurines. It is the first box worth considering anyways. I would’ve bought Lucky Star Set 01 which was released a gazillion years ago and sold out at most places – but back then I wasn’t a collector yet. Gawd, I didn’t even know Lucky Star existed!
I think I wrote too much crap already. Shall I shower you with 12 lovely (ahem!) photos of the girls right now?
All the boxes have this piece of instruction manual. It guides collectors to assemble the instruments. I’m very impressed with the packaging. Very neat.
I hate that I have to personally stick some stickers on the keyboard. The keyboard is already so tiny. I barely made it!
A tanned Azusa is the 11th figure here since there are already have 5 girls for the band and the beach. So there’s an extra Azusa in that sense.
This is the secret item! Honestly, I’m a bit disappointed with the secret item. I was hoping it to be a real surprise – as in not a Mio, Yui or Azusa extra. Popularity really counts no?
This is it. Hope you like it. =)
P.S It took me 40 minutes to assemble the whole thing T.T
