Figurine site

There's a site I've been following where the owner buys a figurine and then does a pretty comprehensive photo shoot of it. Unfortunately, he hasn't posted any new ones since last June, and I suspect he's given up.

There was another such site I knew about a few years ago but lost, which had a far more comprehensive collection of photos. And just this evening, while digging through some old files, I found it again!

They have so many photo shoots that they've divided them up into five different index pages: one two three four five

Some of them are NSFW. So beware.

They're divided by series, and you probably won't be surprised to learn that the single biggest group is from Evangelion.

Fate/TYPE-MOON is the second biggest and Ikki Tousen looks to be third. The Queen's Blade section is pretty big, too. But there are a lot of series which got figurines which I never knew about (the figurines) and some where I wonder what they were thinking.

For instance: why (oh why) would anyone want figurines of the girls from Higurashi?

1 That was pretty......interesting. There were some really gorgeous ones but, geez! must everything be in a bikini?

2 Higurashi was pretty popular a few years ago. Didn't stick, but for a while it was the mind-screw du jour.

...must everything be in a bikini?

No. Some of them are out of their bikinis.

4 Great find, though. Not quite as nice as foobarbaz was, but awesome variety.

6 Higurashi is getting a new series this season. As to why figurines of the girls, probably because they're really cute.

7 That site... posted pics of a gashapon-size Desco. Yay!

If only I could read the text to find out if it's a one-off hand-crafted job or something you can buy...

8 While I was in Melbourne the weekend before last I found a store selling Strike Witches plushies, and I thought of you.

Didn't buy any, but I picked up a Lina Inverse keychain and a Yoko (from Gurren Lagann) cell phone charm.

9 I think I've seen pictures of those. They were unreasonably cute.
