Anime Models

I saw that my model package from Ebay arrived in Kuwait so I went to Aramex right away to pick it up. It was a big but light box, only weighing about 10lbs. I bid on two excellent anime models about three weeks back and it was worth the bid. The funny part is the package said it was a toy and the box had toy written on it, and I took a slight insult to that thinking that these are model kits, but who are they to know.

The packaging was great so the items were kept in perfect condition. I saw the two boxes and opened Gurren Lagann from the look on the cover of the box, I felt like a 10 year old since it was one of the coolest models I have ever seen. I started just putting things together and it came out to be an excellent model, and most of it is made out of metal and its great. That took me about 20 minutes since I was trying the different configurations. Then I unboxed the Mazinger Z and it only had a few items so I put it together quickly and it was 100% metal model.

I was very happy with both and I think I have gathered a nice collection. Now the issue I have is that I don’t have an exact location to place these items, so I probably have to clean up and place these items in the right spot.

Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann Diecast Robot

I have been a fan of Gurren-Lagann since I finished the anime. It was amazing and I don’t mind watching it again since it gets my blood pumping. I’m always on the lookout for these high quality diecast models and I couldn’t believe when I cound it on Ebay so I bid for it right away. I’m crossing my fingers over the next couple of days, hopefully I will be getting it but its shipping from Hong Kong which might take 2 – 3 weeks.
