EDIT: Uploaded better quality photos.

(Click the photo and then “High-res” for a better view)

Four original pieces of pony art arrived yesterday, courtesy of the immensely-talented sophiecabra.

The photos really do them no justice. You can find scans of the originals on Sophie/Spain’s dA, linked above. I have no idea how she managed to get traditional line-art and colouring this clean! I can barely draw a stick-man without it becoming a smudged mess.

I’ll upload another photo once they’re framed, but that will probably have to wait until my room is re-decorated. In the meantime, I should find a photo album to keep the drawings safe.

My Son Goku figure arrived from Hong Kong today. I’m really pleased with this one, especially considering how cheap it was (just under $30 total, I think?). The detail and the molding is really high quality for something that isn’t $100, and it’s a decent size.

This seems to be from the Banpresto SCultures BIG Series 2. Between Series 1 and 2, I’d like to pick up (young) Son Goku, Kuririn, Piccolo and Tao Pai Pai. I’m not sure if there’s a Son Gohan figure in the set.

Anyway, the SCultures series seems to be the best line I’ve seen in some time, at least outside of that insane Medicos Super Saiya-jin Son Goku figure. That thing is awesome.

I’ve been drowning myself in a bit of retail therapy lately, so I picked up this amazing sandstone Derpy figure from Shapeways, courtesy of Hashbro’s 3D modelling work.

It’s exceptional. The attention to detail on the ears and inner-wingspan (hard to see here) is particularly impressive. I’ll really need to grab a small display box to protect her. The model arrived in less than a week from the time of ordering through to delivery (and I’m in Scotland).

I’m really hoping for a Rarity, a Rainbow Dash, or an updated Vinyl Scratch pose, now. Hop to it, Hashbro! ;)
