The mad rush for that Christmas post!

If this post seems rushed, blame it on the fact I've only had about 3 hours worth of sleep!

I manage to finish D.C.I.F. ~Da Capo Innocent Finale~ last night so I'd be ready for D.C. II ~Da Capo II~ that got released yesterday, only to then find that G-Senjou no Maou has been fully translated (it has been over a year since the last patch for this came out).

I even posted a seasonal message for The Nerdsphere (which features a very special character).

Yesterday (but opened today), TFsource and, I received...
  • Protector
  • Sidearm
  • Transformers Prime Original Graphic Novel
  • KM-02 Knight Morpher Annihilator
  • Fate/stay night Complete Collection
I did get some other stuff (like a webcam), but I didn't feel like including it here.

1995 has been knocking on my door once again

I delayed posting this cos the main item I was expecting didn't actually arrive until today.

Monday (last week),, I received Toy Story 3.

The third movie of Toy Story, and also what ultimately led me into buying the following item...

Monday (today), The Entertainer, I received Toy Story Collection Buzz Lightyear.

The item of the week (even though it was late arriving) from a nostalgia standpoint is this, and getting it with 20% off was a nice bonus.

Back when the first Toy Story movie originally came out, I remember the hunt I had in trying to get the Buzz Lightyear toy from various Disney Stores and finally succeeding in acquiring one in Croydon.

Fast forward nearly 16 years and I now have a much improved Buzz with a greater range of poseablty and wings that are closer to those seen in the movie. The helmet still doesn't retract completely, but that's a gripe that would be almost impossible to implement I think.
