Kotobukiya Hayane is Uninspired, Basically Blanc Neige in Black

20110926-012221.jpg

Kotobukiya has quite a history of recoloring previously released figures and launching them as new ones, and their latest announcement is just one of them. From the game “Shining Hearts,” Urayukihime/Hayane could at first be labeled as a Blanc Neige lookalike and such claims are justifiable.

Team Onii-chan! At The Best of Anime 2011 Day 2

Another great weekend, another awesome convention to remember by. The Best of Anime 2011 was by no means a convention of the highest caliber, by normal standards, however, the figure display that Team Onii-chan! put together was once again the source of our joy and pride.

Anyways, I wouldn’t remember The Best of Anime 2011 as an outstanding convention but more for the overwhelming fun factor involved. Here’s some pics from day 2.

Team Onii-chan! at The Best of Anime 2011 Day 1

Day 1 of The Best of Anime 2011 has just closed its chapter and along with it, Team Onii-chan’s display event for the said event.

As always, here’s some shots that I’ve taken from both the event and our totally awesome display. Continue reading

Onii-chan’s Diary: Otaku Expo 2011 Day 1

Otaku Expo 2011 Day 1 has ended and what a day it was! The figure display turned out great despite some early concerns over space and lighting. I’m proud of how our crew vigilantly guarded the display area while having fun at the same time. Revoltech Woody, as expected, stole the show with his perverted adventures, leading to a lot of interestingly maniacal shots. I wasn’t able to take a pic of Woody’s unfaithful figure polygamy, but most of our members should be uploading those soon. Besides, I don’t think my extremely limited camera gear (phone cam — not worthy) would do those shots justice. I did get some pics earlier as teasers for the better ones to come from our awesome members. More pics after the break. Continue reading
