This should serve as a quick follow-up to my previous post (Pre-order mania). I just came home from a trip to my favorite mall and, perhaps for the first time in my life, did not buy anything for myself. But how it turned out to be a stern test to my willpower ^_^
My mission that day was to find two Kotobukiya bishoujo figures as requested by my dad (been collecting since he was a kid) namely X-23 (original version) and the new variant of Black Widow. I easily found the former and the latter was yet to arrive but what caught my eye was the figure box standing behind her; a Yamato's Soryu Asuka Langley.
I love asuka,my very first crush on a fictional character, and I think the figure made by Yamato to be the best I have ever seen. However I could not find it anywhere until today, now that it is just right in front of me I wanted to grab it and get it over with. But something is my brain is telling me not to give in to dropping $130 on her and save the money (maybe for parts for my Lancer Evo? lol).
I also mentioned on my previous post about considering pre-ordering Reiko Date-Wingfield, Hot Toys Avengers Black Widow and the Hot Toys Batmobile 1989 version. Yes about them, apparently the pre-order allocation for the Batmobile has been sold out and did not bother me much considering I could save the $640 for future use. I took some time thinking about the Black Widow but ended up passing on it as well as Reiko.
Well that pretty much sums up my day;expenses avoided. Maybe if I could keep this up for the remainder of the year I could save enough money to be able to buy my toys without feeling too guilty about it.
