(is this loot? a review? diary? a little of everything???)

Hello MFC! Earlier this week I accidentally clicked on a Tokyo Otaku Mode ad and before I knew it I had placed an order with them??? It was most definitely an impulse buy and I was ready to shell out some $$$ for it but new members get free shipping on their first order??? Score??? I clicked through the set up so fast that's probably why I hardly remember placing this!

Is this really their entire staff?! Wow! I expected many more! But most of all Thank You!

I had seen these from other user's TOM orders but I never knew there was an illustration on the back!

An illust card and TOM badge! I love badges, pins, brooches, etc. sigh


Anyway, what I got was nothing big at all really, one item because I have a con coming up next week (shout out if you're going to AX!), but I saw scales of characters from this show and placed preorders for them and was taken by how cute they were??? Every character in this show is really cute and I just don't know how to deal with that haha. But I ended up starting and finishing the show in a day (short at 12 episodes + 1 OVA) and obviously I've been in love and I'm still in love. But any how on TOM I hardly did any type of browsing (more so a short scroll down) before I saw her...

Venera-sama Nendoroid item/206809! From Sekai Seifuku ~Bouryaku no Zvezda~ or World Conquest Zvezda Plot. Ahhh she's really so cute and I think I fell for her character design faster than I fell for Plamya's when I first saw her.

I'm a very new collector and while I don't really huff about Nendoroids, Venera is my first one and I'm really super super happy! Sculptor Iguchi Shinya did such a perfect job capturing her world conquering cuteness!

I don't know much about Nendos but did everyone have a really difficult time setting up their first Nendo? It took me close to an hour to figure stuff out, move parts, pose etc. and that wasn't because I was being cautious! It took me a good 10 minutes to figure how to put on one of her arms because it was good till the elbow where it was backwards??? Only to find out that you can actually remove not only where her elbow is jointed but at her wrist too. Crisis averted.

A short review: Obviously I'm really in love with this Nendoroid Venera, she's super cute I can't get enough of her! She comes with two extra face plates and 5 arms all of which separate at the elbow and wrist. One of the hands is posed as her Zvezda... salute? and another has the giant fist used for her Various Forms of Persuasion??? attack (oh man I gotta rewatch lmao). Accessories include her stuffed rabbit (????) Galatica and the seal of Zvezda??? There's lots of question marks here but the point is there's lots you can do with her haha

As far as issues go? Not many, the only one is that on her default face there's a bubble or something on her left eye but that's about it. I remember someone saying theirs had a greenish torso around the tummy and in some lights it can look that way. But the parts don't really fall out for me, in fact I have to put a tiny bit of force when trying to take them out without having to jimmy them. On the other hand, her cape tails do come out the easiest.

But again I really love this Nendo and what with 2-star Mako's release at AX I might just finally be sold on the Nendoroid line.

Thanks if you stuck this far with me basically drooling over how cute Venera is and calling it a blog post ha ha ha

Thinking of doing a gel nail set inspired by Venera after AX, might post here if anyone's interested???

Venera-sama will soon conquer my collection. Look forward to this picture drastically changing over the next two months!

I have bought from Tom a couple of times, it is a very good shop overall with their customer service and constant promotions.

The only thing that I don't like about them is that they tend to ship in very big boxes, even if it is a small item like a figma or artbook. As I live in a country where there are import taxes, must of the time I end paying more compared to other shops, good grief that I only bought using free shipping option promotions so it somewhat evens out at the end.

jkbVor 5 Jahren#3119826Nice loot !
Some of those staff names are like video games characters names, funny.
Thanks! And yeah some of them are quite unique haha! I think my faves are 3yu. and Peachy KAZHA they look really fun and are fun to say imo lol

onion4yaVor 5 Jahren#3119842isnt that site like... super expensiveHm it depends? If you're use to buying your items second hand or you're use to the JPY to USD exchange rate then it might seem super expensive. Venera I believe in 2014 would have cost about 4666 JPY about $38 USD today, I paid basically $10 USD more at $47.99 but I got free shipping that knocked $22 USD off my total. I don't think TOM is expensive at all once you realize you get free EMS shipping for orders over $100, which when I do order at places like AmiAmi goes waaaaay over that and whatever I saved on item wise ends up in shipping total. But if you're buying a couple small things from TOM then it might not seem so economical. If I didn't get that free shipping on my first order as a member, I would've put a few more items to get it. I'll give a store review for TOM one of these days haha.

LyncfsVor 5 Jahren#3108158Nice photos! She's a cute nendoroid. I also starting buying them and Snow Miku 2014 nearly made me lose my mind putting her together (LOL!). You're not alone on how difficult it is to pose Nendos like their box images. Your shelf looks nice. What are those bean bag face things on top of your manga? They're so cute!Thank you! I tried to take some nicer photos and do a little set up for these so I'm glad they came out alright haha but the bean bags are the Free! manjuu mascots! ITEM #266020 They're super cute and squishy and on top of that they just recently released even bigger cushion versions that are a great lounging item to have haha View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://41.media.tumblr.com/60501fafbc9da03d53565d5b6663e8d1/tumblr_inline_nqojnh0VdA1roujck_540.jpg

CantisamaVor 5 Jahren#3108223Nendos take me a while to set up as well, especially my first few. Some parts are so small, and getting the pose exactly the way you want can take time.
I've been very happy with TOM so far. Fast service, fair prices, nice extras, and they offer deals regularly like free EMS shipping. I hope you used a referral for your first order, would give you $10 off instead of the usual $5 they start you with.
FinalCataclsymVor 5 Jahren#3108773I'm always curious about the various shops people get their figures from. Knowing that TOM made a good first impression on you can lead to others trying them out and giving more feedback for MFC.
'Asides that, Venera looks great.
Thanks! I unfortunately didn't use a referral because it was so spur of the moment but I'll be sure to spread the word of it! Ah I forgot to mention I got this through their current free display case + 10% discount coupon campaign. The coupon lasts for 30 days if anyone's interested! But I did have a very good first impression, super fast handling time, it was shipped in less than 24 hours! I think I'll do a review on TOM after a few more orders since this order was real pleasant. It was nice to have Venera a couple days after finishing the show haha
