So, what’s up?
Well, my dad is hospitalized because of stroke, and I’m too damn busy to update this blog.
But at least, there’s an update
Since I cannot stay at the event location for too long, I don’t have complete report. But at least, I can point several interesting stuff.
Famous cosplayer, Alodia Gosiengfiau was came in the event. She’s cosplaying Baroness from G.I. Joe. As you might already guess, the second G.I Joe movie will be released this year.
Balai Kartini hall’s is packed with people. The cold AC was no longer capable to cool down the temperature, as the result, I got sweaty all over the place. Especially when Alodia came in, everyone just rushing in.
Since we got late apply, our booth was not grouped in Japan Toys group. We are in USA Toys group, next to G.I. Joe booth.
As always, a lot of visitors are interested with our booth. The preparation actually kinda mess up, we need a better way to display the Nendoroid for the next event.
And as always, many people are asking about the Nendoroid we have, like: “I want this one, how much?” And we came with the same old answer “Sorry,this is community booth. We don’t sell these kid, for display only.”
And then we’re point them to Good Smile Company booth (which is in front of us) when they asking about where to buy the Nendoroid. Of course, some of them are quite surprised when seeing the new Idol Master Petit Nendoroid. Since this Petit Nendoroid is actually not available yet in Indonesia, but our friend, Shuuya already got one and displayed in our booth.
As a community booth, we cannot sell anything. This is kinda suck for us because we spending so much money for operational fund. We are allowed to recruit new member in the event, but the problem is, our membership recruitment does not require a membership fee. Just joint in our FB group and have fun.
So, without money to booth, we’re start to having problem when we want to held an event, like: Photo contest, Gathering, etc. Oh well, may be in the future we might obtained a sponsor
Now, let’s move to Good Smile Company’s booth. What do we have here? Yup. They are displaying the sample of Nendoroid Sakura Miku. Surprisingly, the product is better than I had expected. So if you missed the Pre Order, please cry, because it’s your own fault
Aaaaand, the latest Snow Miku. She’s cute, so please cry even more if you missed the Pre Order.
Figma Ultimate Madoka, wow, her skirt is so wide. A displaying base is required for the maximum pose
I remember how disastrous of Snow Miku Fluffy version (the one on the left) when GSC found so many defect on their product. But then, GSC is giving the replacement parts for all customers who ordered this Nendoroid. Nice.
Back to Nendonesia booth, three boxes of our community name card are running out of stock. If we knew this would happened, we will print more name cards.
During the event, a woman is asking a question about where she must go if she want to become an action figure seller? In this case, Nendoroid. I point her at Good Smile Company booth. Also, I having a conversation with someone who is interested to become a sponsor for our community activity. But I forgot to asks his name card and… I forgot to bring mine. I hope he will contact us.
We also get invited by two different Event Organizer next month, but I don’t know… Those events are outside Jakarta, not many people will agree with this, I think. But let’s see what happen later on.
And below here is the rest of the photos, enjoy.
Then I visited Figmania booth, this is the same community like Nendonesia. And most of Figmania’s member, also Nendonesia’s member, and vice versa.
If you already watching Haiyore! Nyaruka San, you knew if she’s Kamen Rider’s fan. She also can transform into one (her own version). The action figure above is Figma, from Good Smile Company too, just like Nendoroid.
The Wizard Driver and her weapon actually came from Bandai’s SHF. Yes, Figma and SHF accessories are compatible (mostly).
These one from Bakemonogatari series. Very interesting story with a lot of well played conversation between the characters.
This diorama was made on top of big thick book.
This is MidzToyz booth, it belong to my friend Edsa. He is a scuptor, his product are sculpting materials, like clay, epoxy putty or other. I was about to bought his epoxy but he said if the epoxy will available in two weeks.
Grumantra of Dalhalla or GoD, is a new tabletop wargame from Indonesia by MORFOSIC studio. As you can already see, they are using Indonesia and any related culture as their theme.
Amazing detail on these figures, if I may say. If you’re interested with this game, feel free to visit their FB page.
At 8 PM, we’re start to unload our belonging. Some of the borrowed Nendoroids are returned to their respective owner, and we must go back home, since me and my friend must catching the Buysway schedule, leaving Shuuya and Dedemit on the location to finished the rest.
I feel bad actually, leaving them alone. But since Busway schedule can be so screwed badly, we got no other option. We are leaving at 08:30 PM, and I arrived at home almost in the midnight.
Well, that’s it. Thanks for reading.
