I love to sew anime and kawaii themed plushies. And I enjoy attending and selling them at conventions. My first visit to Japan was awesome and I hope to go again and again. Being an otaku is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. d(^w^)b

Usually I wait till the end of the month to post my loot, but I was so excited when I received these that I couldn't wait! It's the full box set of the Ore no Imouto ga figures.

WARNING:

If you are a fan of perfect figures, you may want to think twice about buying these. I have read many journals about people who have more than half of these figures come with paint sploches and/or dirt marks all over, mainly their heads and faces. I was lucky in that my batch did not have any marks what so ever. However, mine do have some bad joint problems. Some joints are too small to fit/stay in their sockets or some are so big that they do not fit all the way. Bottom line, they are not perfect. You have been warned.

OMG! It's the first time I've ever received a huge set of figures like this at once. I love the box.

Forgive my blurry camera.

The images on the flaps of the box can be punched out. Not sure what you would use them for though?

So lovely! I don't know where to start?

Took me a while to put them all together. Meruru was my first pick and it took me about 10-15 minutes to put her together because she kept falling apart. >.

"MERURUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Meruru was the main reason I bought the set. I was so happy to get 2 duplicates as well as the secret Kirino cosplay figure. It was a major surprise for me. However, as you can see, the pegs don't all fit into the bases. One Meruru's left arm has a joint that does not reach into the socket so the slightest touch will make it fall out. I'll just have to put a "do not touch" sign near them. Anyone have any Meruru's you don't want, I'll be more than happy to take them off your hands. ^w^

All the Kirino figures. Same as Meruru, the Kirino in the middle has a small joint in her right at the will not connect and can easily fall off with the slightest touch.

Double Saori. Honestly, not my favorite of all the figures. I would have preferred a different duplicate.

Both Ayase figures. She's actually my least favorite character of the whole series, but I must admit, she makes a cute figure. She's also one of the rare figures that has no problems joint-wise.

Kuronekos! The one of the right just does not want to stay on. There are no connectors, just a leg imprint where she is supposed to fit. However, you really have to play with her to get the correct angle in which she can sit without falling off.
