Hello, dearest Star Wars friends and readers! Yes, it has been a few days since my last update, but there is an excellent reason for that, which relates to one of my other blogs. I am finally getting my A into G and starting a “side hustle” – one that I know I can do and hopefully, will eventually grow enough for me to leave my day job 🙂 But I am taking little steps, including going back to my roots (reviewing books and media, which seems to be in my blood, lol) and seeing how things progress.
But enough of that stuff, onto the Star Wars funny thing I will tell you all. I did this at the risk of being ridiculed because, apparently, I like to be laughed at by my friends. 🤣😅😆
So I discussed this with one of my friends, who is honestly the BIGGEST Marvel fan I’ve ever met, and she also sometimes likes Star Wars. So we got to talking about fandoms and merchandise, and she was like, “you should check out that item on this website because it’s way cheaper than Amazon”. And then I realised it was almost 100 bucks cheaper to buy from Sideshow Collectibles than from Amazon (including tax and postage fees). I was like, “WHAT THE HECK!” that is a lot of money to take from people buying your stuff. I mean, 20 or 30 bucks is nothing really but 100 bucks more expensive? That is daylight robbery, lol.
So this is the item, and I really loved it SO MUCH when I saw it:
I mean, LOOK HOW GORGEOUS this is! It is made by the famous Kotobukiya team, who are renowned for their figures because they are always so beautifully detailed. You can see just how detailed this one is! And I, of course, fell in love with it and was like BUY lol before my friend told me about the price on Amazon.
So I eventually bought it from Sideshow Collectibles, and now I have it, but this is the thing – IT’S not a figure. LOL, it’s a figure set that you have to put together! Thank goodness it’s pre-painted because otherwise, I’d be in serious doo-doo and unable to do anything with it.
The lesson learned: Always read the fine print before you buy something 🤣😅😆
But I still have it, and my partner said he can put it together for me, so I am so excited lol because it’s amazinggggggg! And the price was reasonable as well. It will also be my first EVER Kotobukiya collectible, so I am super stoked!
What do you think? Any thoughts, my friends? Feel free to laugh and poke fun – I CAN TAKE IT 🤣😅😆 Nah, seriously, do you like this item?
Let me know if you’ve bought any merchandise lately, what you bought and what you think of my purchase in the comments, and I’ll catch you there!
Love you guys!
