About wcloudx (Kumo) updated!

About wcloudx (Kumo):

Just your typical Figurine and Gunpla collector out there. Usually (In the internet) I’m known either as wcloudx or Kumo, but people who knows me refers me by Jonathan or Jon. I’m an Indonesian and currently residing in Singapore. Right now I’m  working freelance as a Flash Programmer and App Developer for the iPod/iPhone/iPad.

About This Blog:

This blog was originally created in Livejournal around mid-2006 and was intended for my life in Final Fantasy XI and other related stuffs. I was really crazy about the game at that time, in the end I’ve decided to move over to WordPress for better service in early January 2008.

During that time, I intended the blog to cover on FFXI, Anime, Figurine, and Gunpla, but as my interest in figurines grew stronger, most of the Blog content posted became solely dedicated to Figurine related news, as what you can see at present time. I will still try my best to insert non-figurine news from time to time though.

All news are updated daily.


As my collection grew larger, I’ve also decided to post reviews on them. Currently I’m using Nikon D90 to do all my reviews, previously I was using Nikon D40. I’ve also created my own “Mini-Studio” for the photoshoot, using minimal funds. If you are interested in my setup, you may refer to this Post. I’ve made some adjustments since then, but it’s pretty much still using similar setup.

Link Exchange:

I’m totally open for link exchange. If you want to exchange links with me, just leave a comment in this post, including your Blog address and I will add them as soon as possible. If you have a Banner that you want me to use, also include it together in your comment. I would prefer the Banner Width to be within 200px, can be less but no more than that. Length wise it’s up to you. Thank you for your understanding.


I have also prepared some Banners in exchange. Feel free to use them.



Contact Me:

You can pretty much contact me through this Blog by comments.

Other alternatives, I’ve also owned a Twitter and Youtube account.

Playstation Network ID: wcloudx.

Feel free to add me.

  3. KoNz3n Says:

    wcloudx ! I seriously need your help ! Can you teach me your gundam marker painting techniques ! =( .. I don’t know how u paint it so perfectly ! Or make a gundam marker painting guide for all of us 😀

  4. wcloudxkumo Says:

    ( = ‘ _ ‘ = );>

    Well, I don’t mind making a tutorial or a post on that, and I’ll probably gonna do that in the future ^^; but I can’t promise you anytime soon, because currently I’ve been really busy with my projects ^^; I’ll keep that in mind XD

    but thx for the compliment ( = ^ o ^ = )>

  5. KoNz3n Says:

    hmm ok ! do you knoe any links where i can learn some marker techniques ? 🙂

  6. wcloudxkumo Says:

    Hmmm, most of the tutorials I learned from are from hobby magazines like “Hobby Japan” and “Dengeki Hobby”, so I can’t really give you an exact link.

    For starters I recommend try visiting “Hobby Fanatics” forum ^^ They have quite a nice info and tibbits there that might help you ^^

    You can find the link at the side column. Hopefully that could help you a bit ^^;

  7. Erie Says:

    Hey there, how goes the building of Gundam 00 1/100 Virtue/Nadleeh ?
    I’m eagerly awaiting how it turns out and your pictures of it.

  8. wcloudxkumo Says:


    Welcome~ \( ^ . ^ )/

    Currently it’s still 50% complete. I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I don’t really have time to build it, but it should be finished by next week latest ^^

    So look forward to it ( ^ _ ^ )/

  9. The Sojourner Says:

    Hmm… How do you allow your posts to show thumbnails on otaku.fm? My blog is also a wordpress blog yet my posts all end up in the nothumb page for it. =(

  10. wcloudxkumo Says:


    Actually, a fellow blogger of mine also had the same problem as you do ^^; He’s using WordPress also.

    I can’t really think of a problem to tell the truth ^^;

    All I did was just attached the image using the IMG tag, under “HTML”, not “VISUAL”, when posting a new entry.

    Otaku.fm will then displayed the first image in your post as a thumbnail. Always work with mine.

  11. sonic_ver2 Says:

    Hi there! I’d like to do exchange links with you. I’ve already added link to your blog in my blogroll. Thanks in advance 😀

  12. wcloudxkumo Says:


    Welcome ( ^ _ ^ )/

    I’ve added your blog to my links, and also I thank you for adding mine also ^^

  13. George Says:

    Hello Kumo

    This is George from E2046.com. saw your site today. Nice site.

    I’m interested in exchange a link with your site. in a case, you have not heard about E2046.com

    Here is a link to our site and banner change program.



    drop me an email, if you are interested in exchanging links.



  14. samejima Says:

    Heya Kumo. Mind exchanging links? your blog is already listed in my links section. Thanks.

  15. wcloudxkumo Says:


    Sure ^^ Already added yours to mine.

    Also, thank you for adding mine ( ^ _ ^ )

  16. George Says:

    Hello wcloudx

    How are you? I’m George. I’ve left you a message before. I’m wondering would you still be interested in doing a banner exchange with you. Drop me an email to exchangebanner@e2046.com if you can. If I don’t hear from you in the next 2 weeks, I assume you are not interested. ^^

    My Site: http://www.e2046.com/

  17. Haruji Says:


    Nice site and reviews you have here. I added you to my blogroll as well.

    That’s an impresive number of figures you have there 🙂

  18. uzumakiworld Says:

    You should buy a website! You could always use an Iframe set at 100% linking to wcloudxkumo.wordpress.com, so you would still update your wordpress, but it would appear as if it was a real website(because it’s 100%, it’ll take up the whole page!)

    Plus, you could start using Google Adsense & get lots of extra money for figures. 😮

  19. Dancing Queen Says:

    i just realized that i thought i had you linked on my site and i don’t, so i thought we might as well exchange links! I already added you to mine.

  20. Cido Says:

  22. th Says:

    Hey, love all the figure reviews you do here! (How many do you have?! lol) Btw, I was hoping that we can exchange links. You’ve been added already to mine 🙂

  23. th Says:

    It’s weird, I though that commenting when with my WP account would automatically include my url in the name. Apparently not :p My blog, should you wish to check it out is deculture101.wordpress.com

  24. wcloudxkumo Says:


    Sure, loved to ^^


    Thx ^^

    Added your link to mine, and thanks for adding me also ^^

  27. Larry Says:

    Hello Kumo

    Which server were u in? I was in Bismarck, too bad had to take a break as well due to work. I am interested of exchanging banner, please let me know more detail about it. Thank you.

  28. wcloudxkumo Says:


    I was in Odin server at that time ^^ Had to take a break because of stuffs ^^;

    Sure, I don’t mind exchanging banner with you, as long as the width doesn’t exceed more than 200px. Height doesn’t matter ^^

    Just give me the link to your banner (and your link address of course ^^; ) and I’ll have them up as soon as possible.

    As for my Banner, you can find them at the sidebar ^^

  29. Larry Says:

    HAHAHA~~ I started off in Odin as well before the US release( might of see you in the game before ? Asahne was my character name ), but moved to a new server and square combined that new server with a different one and became Bismarck. And 2 yeas ago I actually went back to Odin but left again back to Bismarck, orz.

    I will start working on the banner and yours too, I will send the link asap~
    Would it be possible to place the banner next to Hobby stock, Hobby seach and HLJ? Thank you.

  33. El Bastardo Says:

    Hey there. Since some months ago I’m a regular here so why not ask for banner exchange with my little site at http://figurefan.blogspot.com/

    Just tell (mail) me which images and what text I should use (I’m utilizing an extended tooltip plugin overlayer so a small and big one and some descriptive text is OK).

    Just mail me and I will mail you my banner links back.

    Hope to hear from you soon!!
