Weird Amazon order

Published December 27, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

My Amazon order yesterday (hoping to use the post-Christmas sales to get movies I didn’t receive) ended up being really weird:

X-Men:  Days of Future Past on Blu-ray

Doctor Who “The Time of the Doctor” on DVD

Nendoroids of two characters from the game Disgaea (on sale, thank goodness)


the second half of the Iliad in Greek.  (Well, Greek and English, technically, but I was getting it for the Greek.)

Like I said, a weird order.

I wanted to have an equally weird order today (there’s a full-size Blythe doll that’s not too horribly expensive that I’m dying for an excuse to buy) but they hadn’t put the other movie I forgot about on sale, so I didn’t have any excuse.

(Nendoroids, for those who don’t know, are supremely cute SD figures (usually of Japanese properties, though they’ve also added some Marvel superheros, and the Iron Man one is actually really cute) that have interchangeable parts.  (Meaning that I have seen photos online where someone literally put Spiderman’s head on Hatsune Miku’s body.  Both funny and wrong at the same time, that.)  Being imported from Japan, they’re usually pretty expensive ($40-50 is the low-end average price) so finding them for less than that is always an “if I ever want this one, I need to get it now!” kind of thing.  The two I ordered will make my fourth and fifth full-size Nendoroids, so I’m pretty jazzed about them.  (There are also Petit Nendoroids, smaller and much cheaper and usually sold in blind boxes, of which I have…uh…about eight, if I’m not forgetting any…)
