Have a great day~Edit: New piece of sought after merch collected below!
Uh-oh. It's going to be one of those journals.
As most of you know, I'm a big fan of Cutie (or Cutey, the older media spells it this way) Honey, the first transforming magical girl created by Go Nagai back in 1973. Without Honey's impact, who knows how magical girls would be today!
Anywho, I thought it'd be a fun pre-cursor to my showing off what my room looks like to JUST show my Cutie Honey collection as it is now. I can't even tell you how much I've spent on it the last few years or so, but I can give you a hint: thousands. I've also been lucky enough to snag some hard-to-find things, though I'm nothing like Salvatore, who has one of the limited 2004 Cutie Honey live action/Re:Cutie Honey figure sets :s
Uhh, so enjoy:
And that's the majority bulk.
Oh, I also have the original wall scroll:
I always felt lucky that I scored one of the original ADV Films promo posters for New Cutey Honey back in 1994 as well:
I actually have a lot more stuff, but I figure they're not worth showing. And I'm still looking for my New Cutey Honey cel that I misplaced when I moved in with LittleRamyun
last year. I really wanna frame it ; n ;
I'm going to make a list of things I'm still missing from my collection though.
Things I'm missing from my collection so far include:
Cutey Honey '73 (DVD 2, DVD 3)
Cutey Honey Flash (DVD 4)
Cutey Honey & Flash
Cutey Honey Flash (Volumes 1-4)
Cutie Honey: Legend of an Angel [Also known as Cutie Honey '00s] (Volumes 1-9)
Cutey Honey Flash (Game)
And that's all I really want for my normal collection :s
If you know where I can find any of these things, please let me know~UPDATE 1: I got a hold of the Cutey Honey Flash manga (volumes 1-4) and I personally love it more than the anime version!
And back in the bulk photo in that set, I was talking about how I had garage kit Honey figures that I painted and assembled myself. It was actually really hard for me because I don't have like any sort of good painting skills, and I have giant, bulky hands :C
But I did take a photo of my kit to the official model:
The official model is painted to look like Cutey Honey's leotard in Cutey Honey 70's, while I painted my garage kit to be Honey's leotard in New Cutey Honey and the original manga series.
And that's another thing I'd like to point. Cutey Honey's hair is actually a magenta/hot pink colour, but I see alot of fan art show her with red hair. I don't understand why, since her hair didn't actually show up red until Re:Cutie Honey and Cutie Honey The Live. Other than that, it's always been a shade of pink, even a dark almost red pink s:
Well, anyway, That's my Honey collection. I hope you can now better appreciate my obsession with this character that I've been a fan of for 15 years now (I first saw the trailer for New Cutey Honey when I was 8 years old, and since then have idolized her, even if I'm a man).
Honey is probably not going to die out anytime soon as they have a brand new Cutie Honey manga series being published right now called "Honey VS" (which I haven't seen any of, yet!)
A real journal will come later, yeah ; A ;
I'll see you guys then~!
