Stuff I Want: Kobato & Maria Catgirls


In the category of “Shut Up And Take My Money!”: Hasegawa Kobato and Takayama Maria, from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukanai, by Max Factory.

First up: Misaka Mikoto by Penguin Parade.

Unboxing: Misaka Mikoto, Misaka Imouto & Shirai Kuroko

Video unboxing of Misaka Mikoto, Misaka Imouto and Shirai Kuroko by Penguin Parade (and breaking parts in the process).

Triple whammy to make up for not posting it the first week like I wanted to, but I couldn’t really do anything until I fixed my internet connection in my new room.

Bought all 3 from Hobbystock.
