Turret-kun Has A Friend

You may remember that a few weeks ago, I hired Turret-kun to defend Nori, my computer against the sort of things that threaten computers in my fevered little brain.  Just what might require the strengths of a semi-anthropomorphized kawaii 5" gun turret floating on a life preserver to protect a computer is beyond me, but you never know.  It wasn't until recently, however, that I discovered that Turret-kun was lonely.  Oh, sure, he had that great smile, but it felt painted on.  Inside, I was sure, Turret-kun needed someone to serve.  So I arranged for Nori to join him.

Nori is, as some of you may have guessed, a Figma.  #201, as a matter of fact: Sae from Hidamari Sketch.  Wait, what?  The nice thing about Figmas is that they often come with simply amazing amounts of modification options.  This one, for example, came with two faces for Sae, an extra pair of glasses, ten extra hands in various positions... and the ability to turn her into Nori!  Compared to some, that's actually a fairly sparse amount of options.  It actually took a few days for me to decide to get it... Figmas aren't exactly cheap... but in the end I broke down.  They're not cheap, but they aren't all that expensive, either.  Which is why I picked up three other Figmas, which will appear here at The Pond soon enough.  Just for the record, though?  They haven't made a Rio Figma yet.  I think I'm a little sad about that.

A bigger pic of Nori and Turret-kun is just a simple click away!

1 In 2001 I went to AnimeIowa.  The con was literally just down the street from work--walking distance.  (It was at Collins Plaza Hotel, the place featured in the movie Cedar Rapids.)  I had to get some work done on Friday, but I took a little time out from working to hit the dealer room.  When I got back, I showed a friend of mine the Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne figure I'd bought, and the first thing he did was look up her skirt to see her panties.  Since I know I am not the only one out there, I feel comfortable asking:

What color are her panties?

2 This kind of posable figure has two big joints at the tops of the thighs, so what's up there doesn't really look like panties.

3 Steven, that's generally true, and certainly descriptive of early figmas; but the latest models are surprisingly effective not only at hiding the actual joints, but at accurately depicting certain....parts of the body that normally deform significantly when moved.  Or that normally would have to be sacrificed in order to make a functional plastic joint.

I've heard.

4 Since this is a full-service blog, and I'm willing to go the extra mile for my readers, I asked Nori just exactly what color they were.

There was a lot of yelling of "hentai", and throwing of things.  The Turret-kun took a few shots at me.  I'm pretty sure I've lost the security deposit on Pond Central now because of them... no amount of toothpaste will adequately spackle the hole from a 5" round.
