Yesterday I had a meeting near Akihabara and used the time
before and after the meeting to go on a search for a S.F.B.T-3 doll.
The S.F.B.T-3 is a pose-able (80 joints!!!) doll I would really like to have
for reference when drawing. The problems: They stopped selling it inside
Japan and it can't be mass-produced with machines, therefore it costs
So the challenge was to find a cheap used S.F.B.T-3 in one of the
countless figure and hobby shops in Akihabara.
No chance! After squeezing myself through narrow aisle after narrow
aisle in small basement shops and scanning through whole skyscrapers
full of figures (No figure of speech! There are really whole 10 story buildings
just for figures and dolls in Akihabara!) I finally gave up on finding one.
At least I got out of the house for a while! The weather was just perfect!
See you around DA!
