Recent Hauls

Postby Wevangeliwon » Tue May 20, 2008 5:23 am

I just had an idea for a thread. If it's not allowed, just take it off.

Basically, we share our recent hauls. Whatever you got recently, you can share photos or not if you want to. The point is, there is something interesting about seeing what people have got recently.


I'll start:

Today:
Yubel and Card Ejector YGO Cards x 1
The Naked Chef Series 1

The Sword - Gods of the Earth

DVD:
Three Times by Hou Hsiao-hsien

Books:

recently picked up the NieA under7 boxset for about 20 bucks and the Shinobi perfect collection for 10. oh, and a near-perfect Gunsmith Cats manga collection for about 30. bargain tables ftw.

as for what i should get: prolly an r4 ds card.
a friend of mine got one a while back, and it's sweet. he got it for around $40, and has at least fifteen roms on it at a time, along with a load of other crap: mp3's, etc... TALK BOUT A GOOD DEAL.


as for legendary hauls, there are still few more months til otakon... :grin:

HMV had a sale on music DVDs.
  • Pearl Jam: Touring Band 2000
  • Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains The Same
  • David Bowie: A Reality Tour
  • Meatloaf:Hits out of Hell

Snatched some fun stuff from Forbidden Planet too:
  • Watchmen, since I lost my old dog-eared copy last year
  • Promethea vol 1-3
  • The Authority: Human on the Inside

Human on the Inside is quite interesting as it's one of the few deconstructionist comics I've read that has an unambiguously happy ending.[/list]

A few months ago: ~Revoltech Fraulein Asuka

Just this late last month/early this month:
~Decade Memorial Box (Renewal Feature films and Eva2 Another Cases)
~PSP Silm (apparently...It's a 2000 Piano Black.) <---teh awesome, I love it. ^_^
~On the way: 2 gig memory card for it

That's it for lately. :sweatdrop:

<--Doesn't normally spend so much so soon.


Though it sucks how even though PSPs are region-free for UMD games, it's not so for UMD movies... *sigh*

You can easily convert DVDs to UMDs, so as long as you already own the movie in another format you're still set.

It can be anything, yeah?

Well, then I have bought these few things over the past few weeks:
1. An 1/48 scale model of the Su-27 Flanker B from MiniHobbyModels.
2. Dale Brown's Strike Force, Act of War and I'm going to get Shadow Command soon.
3. A cat. It was an offspring, actually, she was given by a relative of ours.

And....

Call of Duty 4. Jesus christ the graphics on there are awesome! A bit laggy though...

Just bought Vol. 1 of the NGE manga. Shinji annoys me. But I'll probably buy the rest just to read.

Also got In Flames's new album; A Sense of Purpose.

I do! I do! Right here, TriLinK does!

But yeah, 8 grand on audio cables? Is the improvement really worth shelling out that kind of cash? Just curious.

I also got Battlefield 2 new for $10.

I was wondering Bee. Do you have "Fighter Combat" by Robert Shaw (ISBN0-87021-059-9)? If you don't then run - no fly - to your local supplier and get it. It should be just what you need to satisfy your inner aviator.

On the topic of recently aquired stuff:
The Kanji Dictionary - Spahn&Hadamidzky
Genki II + workbook - Banno et.al.
some eva stuff...

As I mentioned before, I could only read Volume 1 of the manga because Manga-Shinji annoyed me that much from the get go.

Yeah, perfectly aware. My brother bought it awhile back, though and didn't want it. God knows why. All I had to do was pay for the casing. Cheapest option for me.
