I have long been frustrated with the fact that everyone I know has a statue and I do not. I've tried with no success - plenty of statue base drops, resulting in empty statue bases sitting all over my property, but no statues :( So, today, while helping a friend with Jade Oni and expecting nothing, I got a statue! That lovely oni decided I needed a statue of Koto! Now, honestly, the ninja pig would not have been my first choice, but hey - its a statue and I'm happy! As an added bonus, when I got him placed at the castle, I noticed that his sword sparkles! So like the silly necromancer that I am, I stood there and admired him for a long time. Did a silly little dance to celebrate my triumph, and then I yelled my success at the dragon master in all caps (he thought I was nuts) and proceeded to bother everyone on my list with my ridiculously happy mood. Sweet success! Finally a statue for this girl! Incidentally, you'll also notice my other triumph in the picture - I did finally manage to get Ivan SoulSinger's sword and his lovely winged hat! Combine that with the Jade Oni death boots, and all in all its been a good couple of days. Still a lot of collecting to do, and hey, one statue is simply not enough! But for now I am content.
