Toy Hunting – Fai D. Flowright

tsubasa resevoir chronicle figure - fai d flowright gashaponMy brother and my nephew occasionally go to Greenhills on Sunday mornings for the most random reasons. I like tagging along, since my nephew loves to hunt for toys, especially around the shops where collectors can rent a space and sell whatever it is that they want to be rid of… Sometimes, you can get lucky and find that one item that completes your collection. Other times, you find something you didn’t know you wanted in the first place.

This time around, I’d say this was a lucky find.

I managed to find Fai D. Flowright from Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE for only PHP100 (approximately 2.29 USD). I’m not sure if that’s a good value or not, but I really love this figure! For a gashapon, it’s quite detailed, and his staff and eyes are glossy~ He stands very well on his own too! I had no trouble balancing him on my bed for this photo.

To be honest though, I haven’t even seen any of the episodes from Tsubasa… but I am an avid fan of xxxHolic, so I read a few chapters of Tsubasa on the side. Fai seems like a lovely character, and I adore how he teases the serious Kurogane without fear! But I’m detecting a sad story behind his cheerful appearance.

It’s these kinds of finds that make me want to go back to Greenhills whenever I can, but I need a new display cabinet if I want to keep hunting for new toys… Maybe one with tinted glass so that I won’t have to worry about them in my very sunny room. Hm…
