What a joy it is to have this on DVD

Besides my joining YouTube this week, the only other event worth noting is that I've finally watched all of PreCure Splash Star in its subbed entirety (it was worth the wait, it really was).

As for purchases, only these DVDs arrived.

Wednesday, supermart_usa, I received...
  • Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers The Collection: Volume 1
  • Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers The Collection: Volume 2
This was another series I remember watching as a kid, but it was listening to the Back to the 80's episode review that lead to me getting these sets.

One thing that might appeal to anyone else wanting these sets is that you do not require a muti-region DVD player to watch them, the discs have no regional coding whatsoever.

NemKaixa is the Nemmy of YouTube

Now this is going to be a rare blog post from me, why? Cos I'm not here to plug what I've bought (I'm saving that for the weekend), but just to mention that Nemmy now has a YouTube Channel.

I might upload videos to it at some point, but not right now, cos for starters I don't have a proper video camera and whatever else you need to do this thing right. Not to mention my last outing on YouTube didn't end too well, so I'm playing it rather cautiously this time round.

When a Leader and his Saber crosses a Ghost Commander

Now that I've finished the recently released Matsuribayashi-hen, I'm done with the Higurashi VNs until Higirashi Rei gets a release (although I've already played through the Saikoroshi-hen from it).

Anyway, let's move on to the toys I got this week.

Tuesday, iGear, I received PP01B Nemesis Leader.

For a downscaled version of Masterpiece Convoy this is a pretty decent toy, although I do have my fears in trying to transform the thing cos it has that fragile feel to it.

But it serves its purpose just fine in robot mode that I took this shot with his Masterpiece 'brother' (well, one of them anyway).

If anything, I actually prefer the subtle colour differences on Nemesis Leader (like the red windows).

Wednesday, AmiAmi, I received figma Saber Alter.

This is a figma I've wanted to see for years, and it finally got made!

Saber Alter (a.k.a. Kuroi Saber) is the version of Saber I like most (just look at the banner), as it was from first seeing the Revoltech figure of her that made me want to know more about Fate/stay night (but more importantly, the Heaven's feel route she appeared in from the VN).

Thursday, Kapow Toys, I received Masterpiece MP-3G Starscream Ghost Ver.

This is the sixth time I've bought this mould (the Hasbro Skywarp I got for Christmas was the fifth), and I still like it!

The 'crystal' colouring looks really bloody nice on this guy, so I'm glad I bought it.

Friday, smalljoes, I received G.I. Joe: Resolute Cobra Commander.

Ol' fish-gutter here was a required purchase after seeing G.I. Joe: Resolute.

I just wish his sheath wasn't bent upon opening, and that his helmet would stay on better.

Nemmy's got another black Prime repaint!

I was going to post this up Saturday, but some bad shit happened that day and the only thing that took my mind off it was the latest patch release for Umineko (which I completed this morning).

Monday last week, dvdexclusivemusthaves, I received Pole Position Collectors Edition.

I watched this show quite a bit as a kid, so when I saw listed cheap on DVD, I snapped it up (simple as that really).

Wednesday, and shoe-chadead, I received...
  • Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Black Ver.
  • G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary Specialist Trakker
  • Revenge of the Fallen Two-Disc Special Edition
  • Revenge of the Fallen EZ Collection Stealth Bumblebee
This black Prime is one I've wanted since I got Buster Prime, but never bought until now.

I got it directly from as it going for about £40 (not including shipping), and yeah it got stung by customs, but it didn't annoy me as much because the courier was DHL and not Parcelfarce, so I wasn't screwed over with extortionate fees!

Once I got the black Prime, I just had to combine him with Jetfire (yes, I know I've mistransformed it, but it was intentional!) so I can have Jetpower Optimus Prime in 'uniform' colours on my shelf.

Joes, Otomes and even a Runaway

I've just about got over my cold, but the real life shit is continuing to hound me (just my fucking luck, huh?).

Negative shit aside (for now at least), here's this week's purchases.

Monday, argos-clearancebargains, I received G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra Nightbird with Aero Viper.

This is only the second G.I. Joe vehicle I've bought (the first was that bloody H.I.S.S. tank), and damn its impressive (even more so at the price I paid for it)!

It really is quite big; bigger than I expected in fact, but the thing I like about it most is the cocking revolver action when launching the missiles.

I don't care much for the Aero Viper, as his job is to sit his ass in the cockpit like a good little lackey.

Thursday,, I received Runaway Train.

I'm kinda annoyed about this one cos I decided to buy it after I couldn't locate my Anchor Bay release of the film; and take a guess what I find the very next day?

Nevertheless, Runaway Train is a film that deserves more attention than it gets (and if you're one of those people who haven't seen it yet, SHAME. ON. YOU!) cos there's more going for it than simply a story of a bunch of runaway locomotives in snowy Alaska.

The ending in particular still brings a tear to my eye and left a mighty big impression on Nemmy back when he watched it for first time at the age of 9 (even though I didn't fully understand the meaning behind it back then).

Friday, supermart_usa, I received My-Otome Complete Collection.

Mai-Otome, it wasn't quite as striking to me as Mai-HiME, but it did have some interesting things going for it (like all the unique Robes) and against it (like Nina and her umm... you know... questionable intentions).

Although I was more pissed at the fact Mai Tokiha wasn't in it until the final few episodes!

Yesterday, oddbanana, I received G.I. Joe: Resolute.

Seeing as I've been getting into G.I. Joe more and more (how vexing), I thought I'd watch this 'mature' take on it (and when I did, I was amazed by it).

What sold it to me more than anything was Cobra Commander and his methods of motivating the troops.
