My 7-year-old son has finally awaken to model kit! He came to me with a box of Little Battlers' Experience LBX Archilles and told me he wanted it as a gift. I'm equally delighted to get this for him as I always think that this knight framed LBX, looks really awesome. I assumed my son had been somehow influenced by the kiddy anime aired on OKTO channel, which even my elder sister had some knowledge of this protagonist mecha design like a gladiator with it round spartan shield and lance. 

Though Denz like the model kit, it's still daddy doing most of the hard work of assembling. Well, the instruction manual is extremely friendly and colour printed on all pages. The cape had to be cut out from the manual, so I had used scrotch tape as lamination to strengthen the paper cape. Since it mainly for kiddo's playing, I only panel lined the robot, and used marker to colour the shield gold and lance spear silver. It's a pretty cool kit, just that parts like the skirtings and legs tends to drop off easily.

Walkure Romanze started off as an eroge before the there was a 12 episodes anime on a group of female students, five heroines, in pursuit of their passion on jousting. There's a 1/6 scale figure of Celia Cumani Aintree, the strongest knight and beauty queen of the academy (she basically excel in everything without much contest). I usually go for 1/8 scale Bishoujo (female PVC statue) so this figure kind of tower over most of my collection. 

Initially, I was searching for a prepainted figure of Celia in knight armour, unfortunately they were only available resin by VOLKs. This is the closest I could find, since 'Daiki Kougyou' had a reputation of manufacturing bigger scale Bishoujo. Gauntlets and knight boots were all I can get as Celia is clad in bikini, flattering her great body. The combination of her bikini and her armor set really works! The rubber bikini can be removed but since this blog is healthy" and I won't want the authority coming after me... In short, this figure depicts full or partial nudity and is not intended for immature hobbyists. I'm get the itsy bitsy teenie weenie bikini intact. 

Those who wanted more of Celia could also get the tanned version of this Bishoujo. IMHO, this is an excellent figure with dapper face sculpt by Toushirou. It clearly bought out the confidence of Celia, great skin tone, beautiful blond hair with some curls, gorgeous body line and spectacularly hot in that pose sturdy on the stand. Just need to be extra careful not to break those cuffs on the kneels. I accidentally broken one of those cuff, luckily there isn't anything superglue can't fix ^_^

Before my Otaku trip, Yodabashi Akiba was rumored to be like a warehouse of Gunpla. When I finally visited this 9-storey-megamall which it hard to miss after exited from Akihabara JR train station, it really like an utopia of Gunpla. Though the megamall is renowned for its electronic products, it had dedicated one entire storey for various toys for all ages and a large area for model kits alone. The store would frequently make announcement that it has English and even Mandarin speaking staffs to make shoppers' shopping experience a present one. Tax refund is also available at the store. Just tell the salesperson you're a tourist and present your passport upon payment and they will deduct the tax from the bill.
