Banewulfe's MH Collection

I love Monster Hunter SO MUCH I am willing to HUNT for anything related to the game. In fact, besides going to Tokyo Game Show just to play Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and buy up the Capcom store, the other part of my QUEST in visiting Japan--TWICE--was of course, to acquire tons of Monster Hunter treasures.

This is why I love Akihabara in Japan, because you'll find things there you'll never knew existed... when I first walked into one of the stores flanked with Monster Hunter stuff, I felt like I had died and went to Heaven, or I was walking through a blissful dream...

This is a 20000 Yen ($200) silver pendant I bought in Akiba.

...and a silver Airu pendant!

I have three display cases full of figures and stuff... Here is the top of my Monster Hunter-themed display case.

Re-enacting a Gordiant battle scene from Lost Planet 2 PS3, where you get Monster Hunter costumes!

Baby Gordiant discovers Monster Hunter camp!
I have a pet hermit crab, named Daimyo, after the Daimyo Hermitaur! When I first got him, I planned to chop up a plastic toy Triceratops Head and paint it like an aged skull to mount it to the top of his shell. However, I read that the glue and paint would harm the crab so I decided against it. 

Two Hunters: "Shh, don't move. A Daimyo's broken into our camp and is raiding our supply box looking for peanut butter and human flesh..."

"Oh shit! He spotted us!"


Rathian, Rathalos, Khezu, and Kutku chompin' on a Rare Steak!

Monster Hunter University backpack, and Hunting Club sweater, surrounded by some of my Poogie and Felyne plushies! Note the exclusive TGS 2010 Capcom Special DVD!

Just a couple of my favorite MH soundtracks, especially the Orgel which plays the MH themes with xylophone so it sounds like a music box. I own every MH soundtrack as far as I'm aware of.

MH towel I use for a banner above my living room.

Full collection of the fully-articulate MH figures (I wish Revoltech had made these because the joints aren't as tight so they are difficult to stand on their own, but they can interchange weapons which is cool!) And yes, that is real MH TOILET PAPER! Also, a shirt I bought in 2010.

These are the stickers you collect when you order the snacks at Namja Town!

Vinyl Rathalos, Salt and Pepper Shaker Felynes, Airu Village cups.

Poogie stack! The bottom one plays music and walks, the middle one wiggles his nose to sound. Monster Hunter mochi (I bought a box to eat and a box to keep)

Airu pen prize from Namja Town, Rathian keychain from TGS 2010.

Kutku wants to eat the poogies!

Monster Hunter books and games.

I love this little supply box, you can open and close the lid, so cute! I wish you could take out the mega potions, too! I also have a mega potion and meat keychain on my cellphone!

Namja Town prize from roasting the Well Done Steak and getting the golden ball!


Poka Poka Airu Village for PSP!

Flip-flops! They make paw prints on the sand when you walk!

Quest stamps!!

Closeups of Ian/Los keychains.

Airu Village hut plushie "stool," but it's tiny so it's kinda hard to sit on. XD

Meat cookies!

Felyne cookies in vanilla and chocolate!!

whoa what a collection you have there. Did you eat the cookies or preserved/collected them? =b

Genevieve Tsai said...

Hahaha! I actually ate one of the boxes of cookies and kept the other one preserved. I'll be honest, the cookies tasted how one might imagine dog biscuits to taste, LOL!

But not as bad as the mochi, which were like eating a balled up piece of bread that had been sitting out on the porch for a year.

These snacks are definitely meant to keep more than to eat! XD

Soahc said...

maybe the felyne who cooked them still needs to level up his cooking skills.. >-<

Genevieve Tsai said...

@ Soahc - Hahaha!! True!
