Posable Aerith figurine (so glad I WAITED to get this, as it was cheaper than if I'd bought it on ebay).
Posable Cloud (original FFVII garb) figurine.
Irvine (Final Fantasy VIII) figurine which made me SO happy!
A Sailor Moon book.

Entire series of Angelic Layer.
Complete collection of the Urusei Yatsua OVAs (omg. I SQUEEED when I saw this).

I went a lot crazier with this expo than I have before, so I'll be keeping my head level the next few that come up.

First time at the MCM Expo and I went a bit crazy. There was these two Death Note Real Action Figures of L & Light. I saw them at Play-Asia months ago and thought they looked really awesome. They were £84 at the stalls so I thought I should give it a miss. Then I wondered around some more, bought some misc items but felt like I'm missing something. I don't need any Manga's. Don't buy Anime DVD's anymore. DAMMIT I NEED TO GET ONE OF THOSE FIGURES! So I took out £100 and went right back to that stall and grabbed the L figure and asked "How much?" the guy says he'll sell it for £75. They must've not been selling. I gleefully walked away with it. Got something to eat, wandered around some more and then I saw it. The Light figure hasn't been sold. Having one of these is awesome but what about both?! Took out some cash, bought the Light figure as well.

Here's some pics of them

ImageImageImageImage

Also bought a Renji Plush, Light Nendoroid and a Piplup plush. All together the day cost me around £200.

Wow those are quite pricey for something so normal sized o.o, they look and sound pretty much like Figma type figures, and those sell for just £16-£25, I wonder why the extra £60 o.o;;;

//edit Just googled and they are 12" so quite big o.o, but pricey =x

Yeah they're pretty big, not sure if the pictures show it. They're going for £120 on YesAsia and on the website of the stall I bought it, it's going for £85.. Still expensive but hey, I got nothing else to spend my wages on >_>

I just found out there is an Real Action Figure of Misa. Damn, I want that now. Maybe in May.

I didnt buy much - a alternative clothed Ibuki from SF3, a Capcom Girls Lilith from Dark Stalkers, an unofficial but kawaii Nintento bag and my star buy - a hentai pillow case!!!! It was a standard size case that wasnt on display. I'll show you the front but if you want to see the back its in my photobucket:
