So it's not often that I do an Expo Retrospective - this may be the second occasion, I think - and it's definitely not often that I brag about what I picked up while I was there...but this time I feel like making an exception, as there were one or two things that I wanted to pick up but couldn't, either because I didn't have room in my luggage to get it home, or because it simply wasn't available at the event; these items I then ordered from their respective retailers, and have been waiting for them to arrive...and now they're here. So have some photos.
So glad to have TF Combiner Wars Defensor and Unite Warriors Superion in my collection, and definitely a proud owner of CAPCOM Figure Builder Morrigan Aensland! I had the original Transformers Defensor as a child (which disappeared along with the rest of my collection during a move T_T) and I've never had Superion or any of the Aerialbots, so I'm definitely happy to have the more modern takes on both of these great figure sets. I collected the individual figures to build Defensor at Expo on the Friday, and had to order the Japanese Exclusive boxset of Superion when I got home, as no-one was stocking it at the event, which disappointed me somewhat, I'll admit - though, in retrospect, I'm not sure I'd have been able to get the packaging box home, which would've been a real kick in the pants because the artwork is awesome.
As for Morrigan...well, what can I say; I'm a big fan of the Queen of the Succubi. I saw this beautiful piece at Expo on the Sunday, and was really torn about whether or not to pick it up, because I've always wanted a Morrigan piece and the retailer was offering it for a decent price (unlike the massive scalping that another retailer was trying to get away with for hideously-overpriced Rias Gremory pieces; the guy wanted £300 for one of them, and that was my entire spending budget for the weekend!). Unfortunately, due to space limitations, I couldn't say for sure whether or not I could get this piece of art home...so with great reluctance, I left it, and ordered it immediately when I arrived home. The retailer I saw at the event unfortunately didn't have it on their website, so I had to get it from somewhere else...and they ordered it especially from Japan, and it took some time to get here. I am SO pleased to have this; I just wish they'd made one of Lilith to accompany it. =/
Anyway, that's my Loot Report from London MCM Expo #28. Enjoy the photos, and I'll catch you all on the flipside!
