Well then, hello fellow TSG'ers. This Friday-Saturday-Sunday I was at a local anime convention, where many a shenannigans took place.

Watched some Gurren Lagann, Lucky Star, TMOHS *No endless eight was playing :3!*, NGE and some other anime's, and also got some epic lewts.

Unfortunately.. not 1... not FREAKING 1 YOKO FIGURINE. I almost keel'd someone, because they had every TMOHS figurine imaginable *The more lewd ones I did not get as my basement isn't closed off to the parents yet*

Anyway... lewts!

2 Haruhi figurines, a Mikuru Figurine, Mikuru Plushie *Background* and the first 2 TMOHS manga's *both of which i had before*

Fulldrill Gurren Lagann and Lazengann. *No Yoko T.T*

Asuka from NGE *the one Rust dosen't like, there wasen't a Rei one there.. well.. there was a "Naked" Rei... >.>*

Good stuff. Shame you didn't keel someone. I'm sure you could have gotten one if you did xP

Yay, another hardcore Haruhi fan =D

Also, cool stuff, I really wish I could've gone to that, or a local one, but I don't hear about any in my area.

I almost keel'd someone, because they had every TMOHS figurine imaginable I wondered who that was trying to take mah precious figurines. ( :lol: jk)

Seriously though, you picked up some pretty cool stuff, Ninboy. I especially like that TMOHS poster. _awesome_

Awesome Asuka figure. It is not surprising there wasn't a Rei. I am the only one of my friends that have seen NGE that like her. If you had gotten a Rei figure that I don't have, I'd be making a bid for it right now :P

If this were 2 months ago, I would totally get that Haruhi wall scroll. After seeing this season, however...

I'm not too big on Evangelion or Chobits. Yay for TTGL! That's unfortunate with the lack of Yoko. TT

Hey... Hey.........
Endless Eight will end with a awesome rest of the season..
It will... it will.. *rocks back and fourth*



The bottom broke off, I just superglued it back on
I have to ask, did her bottom fall off, as in her posterior, or did the lower half of the figure fall off as a whole?


What? This is important.

The bottom as in a little black pedestal for her feet so she stands up. lol

Nice finds Ninboy! How much did you end up spending? XD

I went to Anime Expo and tried to buy as little as possible. I think I did a good job of that XD

And those Gurren Lagann figurines...are they the Revoltech ones? If they are, I have the same Gurren Lagann figurine as you! :3

lol! I'm tempted to say that most of the money went to Haruhi merch? X3

I'm with you Ninboy. After Endless Eight, Haruhi will rise back!

Lets see..
Big Haruhi - 110$
Small Haruhi - 40$
Small Mikuru - 40$
Haruhi Poster - 25$
Mikuru Plushie - 22$
237$ out of 440$, yep Haruhi won.

Next year, I plan on getting Yoko figurines *If their there >.>*, a Rei figurine, a Yuki figurine, and possibly that huge 1/4 size Mikuru *In her red bunny suit* figurine that was 200$ >.>

Cool cool. Have you seen Revoltech's Fraulein series for the Haruhi figurines? I got the Yuki one, but I'm hoping to get Haruhi and Mikuru someday.

Do you mind shopping online? Or is it the shipping and handling fee that gets to you? I'm pretty sure you can find Yoko figurines online if you can't find her next year.

Yoko and Yuki, nice taste, Ninboy. This almost compels me to go my anime convention, but it passed a couple months ago. At the very least, I should visit this anime store that my friend recommended to me, where he got his FF:AC Cloud Strife.

It is not surprising there wasn't a Rei. I am the only one of my friends that have seen NGE that like her. If you had gotten a Rei figure that I don't have, I'd be making a bid for it right now
I'd always gotten the impression that Rei was one of the more popular characters. Maybe it's just me and my friends, though.

Anyway, looks like a nice haul, Ninboy. I've just gotten into figurines recently, but they're the first thing I look for at conventions now.

Based on the ratio of fan art I see of the characters, Asuka usually wins.

I wonder how long it will be until we start seeing Mari figures alongside Rei and Asuka overseas.

Meh, and my parents would get it in the mail and be like...
"wtf is this?"

Like they did with the TSG stuff I got, rofl.

A few months ago me and Rust were scouting..

This is where living away from your parents while you're in college becomes somewhat of a convenience XD (I still miss them though D: )

Where were you two scouting?

You could try the website for the store I volunteered for at Anime Expo:
Anime Jungle (http://www.animejungle.net/user/scripts/user/category.php)
Just type in Gurren Lagann and narrow it down to Anime Figurine, Toy.

I love how they make anime figurines that don't relate to the anime at all. Since when has Asuka used an assault rifle outside of an Eva? xD

It's awesome anyways.

It's too bad about no Rei though. Asuka's mean. :[

CUS SHE CAN AND SHE LOOKS PIMP THAT WAY. >w>

And its not ANY assault rifle.. its obviously a Famas.

Edit: I suppose I was lying..
I got Gurren Lagann magnets for my Gurren Lagann poster to post on my Gurren Lagann fridge. *lol* Not really a Yoko figurine.. but meh. >:3
