I just want to say...

I don't know if a lot of people actually took the time to watch the few figure reviews I posted on this website and on Youtube, but, in case some of you actually did pay attention to them, I would like to you to know that the reason why I haven't posted anything in a while is because things have not been going to great in my life.

I got fired from my job four months ago and I just lost the interest to make reviews..Also, I now lack the funds to buy all the figures that I want... Because I moved and, having lost my source of income, I have to spend the little money I have on important things like my rent and...what else...oh yeah, food.

I had recently bought two figures, but I filmed them with vertically with my iPod and it looked bad when I uploaded it on Youtube and I couldn't find a way to flip the picture in iMovie (if you guys know how to solve my problem, help me).

Bottom line, what I am saying is that I will try to make more videos in the future. I am thinking of making one of my new apartment and how I set up some of my figures. I didn't want my place to scream OTAKU and I think I did things rather tastefully.

Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this, it means a lot to me.   read

Love is War Miku

Alright, I have had this one for a month now...but I have been busy with a little game called Mass Effect 3 (no spoilers I have not finished the game).

Not much else to say as usual, everything is in the video, so enjoy :D

Together with Hello Kitty! Shizuku Minase Complete Figure

This figure was a spontaneous buy because she was on sale. She is still on sale if you are interested in getting, but is she worth your money?

If you want to find out, watch this review.

Black Rock Shooter the Game Figma Review

Howdy-ho to every body out there.

I filmed this review over the past weekend but I am just uploading it now because I am a lazy person..No actually, it's because I spend all day in front of a computer at work and when I come home...I don't really feel like being in front of a computer.

So here is my little review of the Black Rock Shooter: The Game Figma that came out a little while ago. It's a pretty decent little figure, but don't take my word for it...actually, yeah, that's the whole point of my video...

Enjoy :)

Kuroneko Review 1

Hello once again!

Sorry if it looks like I'm spamming, but this review has been hanging around for a while and I finally decided to edit and upload it.

If you are wondering why it's called Kuroneko Review 1, it's because I have another figure of her that I got recently (on sale, what can I say), and I'll be reviewing her shortly.

In the meantime here is a review I did during the Holidays.

Enjoy and don't forget to reply to my previous blog entry :D

Which figure should I review next?

Alright Tomopopers!

I will be getting a bunch of figures (6 to be exact) in the mail very soon. They are all recently released figures and I think some of you will be interesting in seeing the figure and hearing what I have to say about it.

So, since I'm excited about getting them (I bet the box is going to be huge!) I don't know which one I'll review first...And that's the truth, I'm looking forward to getting each one of them, so I have no clue where to begin.

That's where you guys come in. I want you to choose which figure I should review next. Based on the comments for this blog entry (here's hoping I get more that one), the figure that gets the most votes will be the next one I review.

But Valerie (my real name) what figures will you be getting?

Here's the list:

1-1/8 Madoka Kaname PVC

2-1/8 Hatsune Miku Love is War Ver. PVC

3-Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~

4-Toradora Nendoroid Taiga Aisaka

5-K-On! Alter Ritsu Tainaka

6-Max Factory’s Catherine Scale Figure

So there you have it. I'm guessing the figures will arrive either the middle of next week (February 08) or shortly after that. Depending on what customs decides to do with my package. So I'll leave this post active for a bout a week (it is now February 04).

So just leave a comment below and let me know which figure you would like me to review first.

Update, February 9 2012.

Look what arrived in the mail today!


No, I did not import a small child from Japan...although it's about the right size...It's almost as big as me... And I'm 5"5"....So I got my package and according to the number of people who answered this blog, the first figure to be reviewed will be *drumroll*

2-1/8 Hatsune Miku Love is War Ver. PVC

Expect the review to be up pretty soon...although I will upload reviews I did this past weekend before that one.

Also, I will not review Ritsu since she's a re-release.

So keep an eye out for the upcoming reviews!   read

Aoi Yamada from Working!!

Greetings one and all.

Here is my second video review. This figure was produced by Atler and it features the cute and clumsy Aoi Yamada from Working!!. I bought this figure for the character more than for the look because I love her so much...

But you can find out more in the video, so enjoy!

Figure Review G.E.M Series-Fullmetal Alchemist-Edward Elric Megahouse

Hello to all of you people on Tomopop!

I have been a loyal watcher, sometimes commentator on this blog for a little more than a year now, and I decided to try my own hand at reviewing a figure.

Since I do a lot of writing at my work, I decided to make a video of my critics. The first figure I will be reviewing is the Figure Review G.E.M Series-Fullmetal Alchemist-Edward Elric Megahouse which is still available at Ami Ami:

Nothing big and fancy in the terms of video effects...this was my first time using Imovie. I did this last night on a whim, but I plan to do them with each figure I will be receiving in the mail in the upcoming months.

So I hope you enjoy this little video of mine. Pardon some of my expressions...I am a French speaking Canadian and although my English is not too bad...I mixed up some words (I should have said "defect" instead of "default"...Anyway, enjoy.
