Another Revoltech in my blog 😀 I hope you are not bored. I successfully get these Yotsuba before I get Figma Drossel (it was around September-October of last year I think).
Yotsuba is the main character in the manga Yotsuba&!, created by Kiyohiko Azuma. The figure is sculpted by Enoki Tomohide and powered by Revoltech 2G.
Have you ever been in a condition where you really want a toy, your mind says “let’s get one”, but your wallet says “hell no!”?
Well, I have, a couple of times, and Yotsuba here is an example. When Revoltech Yotsuba and Danbo was released, I already become a big fan of the Manga. Unfortunately, there are other priorities that must overlap my thirst for figures at that time. Huff, sometimes you just have to be man enough to pass the temptation right? So I did not grab Danbo and Yotsuba.
Now, if you look into my previous entries, you’ll find that I have already gathered the Danbo family (I only missed 1 version which I don’t really plan to get it ’till now :D). As for Yotsuba, there’s a Yotsuba hype recently going on in my country last year. So there is this seller that tries to fulfill the demand of society. In the end, he did manage to find some original version of Yotsuba, with a reasonable prize 😀 I won’t let that chance go for the second time 😀
Things got more complicated for the Summer DX version. It has more accessories and face expression. Making it become the top list of Yotsuba lover. Combined with the discontinued production from Kaiyodo, the Summer DX becomes harder to find. Until at the end of the year, I found an online seller (forgot his link) that is selling his Summer DX collection. It was a second hand item, but he says that it’s in a perfect condition. He sell it with a prize no different than when Summer DX was first released. Since I got no problem with second hand item, I grab that toy right away 😀 And the seller was right, the figure was still wraped up in a plastic like new 😀
So in the end, I did get what I want 😀 Toys often come at the time we least expected ^^
It took me quite a while to find a free time and doing special photoshoot with Yotsuba. It was really fun ^^ she is pretty poseable for a Revoltech 😀
Finally, a closing statement from her 😀
Wow, she’s getting out of control! Gotta run 😀
