Bamboo Blade and Shmup Toys Make for a Good Day

Got a few things in the post today, the most fantastic of which is a 1/8 PVC figure of Kawazoe Tamaki from Bamboo Blade. Tama-chan looks adorable and is very well sculpted, she's from Kotobukiya. She comes in full kendo garb, with a shinai and a dojo floor-like base that she is screwed onto. Yes, I didn't have to stick bloody plastic pegs into the bottoms of her feet, she came completely bolted to the floor. I also got a set of Shooting Historica Vol. 2 from NCS, which includes ships from shmups of years past. This set included the Ragnarok R-90 from R-Type III, the R-Gray 1 from Raystorm, Opa Opa from Fantasy Zone ^^;, G.A.I.A. from Star Luster, Geo Sword from Star Blade and MUSHA Aleste from Aleste.


Apparently my ships are bio-hazardous specimens. ^^;

Ragnarok R-90, I choose you?
The MUSHA Aleste.
Geo Sword in pieces.
Geo Sword all put together.
The Ragnarok R-90, arguably the most complex of the set.

Not much to Opa Opa here.
Isn't Opa Opa Greek? Are Greeks in line to dominate space travel in a flower-covered future?Not much challenge in putting G.A.I.A. together.
Here he is on his base.
The R-Gray 1 also has enough parts to be considered an honorable Lego model.
Had to use superglue to make this one straight, and its nose is still crooked.
The fleet - with plastic stands.There's the R-90 put together, with its options and bits floating around it.
