    victorviper5 maand(en) geleden#75047396Hmm, I didn't realize they made three different versions of this figure. With the pink outfit I hardly recognized her as Homura when I first saw this variant. I tend to associate her with the colors black and purple, and so ITEM #740816 seems more Homura-like to me.
    Nice review as always.
    Thank you! :3
    I guess that#s fair and I do as well, but that's precisely why this one has a nice novelty to it imo. I actually like the variant you linked least, because of the braids and glasses (I know that's also her but it just looks so timid). Also since I plan to get ITEM #805681 as well it'll look like they switched their color palettes and I somehow like the thought of that.^^

    LittlePisces5 maand(en) geleden#75025822My girl looks good any outfit! ♡ Silly me realized the colors are based on the flavor of the macaron base. The brown and yellow one is the chocolate flavored one. Makes more sense because ya know, chocolate is brown. The colors they chose isn't so bad after all. I still think I would've prefer a different color combo like brown and pink. Or brown and white.Ofc she does! :3
    I would've preferred the color combinations slightly differently as well, but then again it's not like I would buy all 3 variants either. ONe with a red base color/macaron would've looked great as well.

    broken-Toybox5 maand(en) geleden#75025645I actually like all versions to some degree and since Homura is just that fabulous he can wear anything imo. I still love this one the most though <3

    jumpluff5 maand(en) geleden#75025354I like the pink version too!
    Thank you so much for doing this review. I still haven't made my mind up yet on whether I want her ($... but... can get a Madoka to go with her... so $$), and this is really insightful. I feel like, for all her awkwardness/flaws, the charm/cuteness of the concept and design just make up for a lot... but I have a few prizes and am used to their flaws.
    I have to say I originally thought she would be a little smaller. I don't know what I think about her size, I think it makes the lack of shading in some places more obvious/problematic. On the other hand, she has a very cute face and I want to be able to see it.
    I love the figures you chose to display her next to for the comparison pictures, you have lovely taste ~
    Thank you! (/≧ω\)
    Sometimes flaws can even increase the charm of a figure imo and for this is actually a good example of this (plus, it's not like I expected anything extraordinary). Personally I'm quite fond of the size, 1/7 is my favorite scale and thus most of my collection tends to be that as well. I'm actually not that strict with the shading as it's nice she has some at all, most of the prize figures I own don't have any at all. It could definitely be more prominent though.

    LittlePisces5 maand(en) geleden#75019388I honestly like the pink version along with the Moemura version. The brown and yellow just doesn't suit Homura in my opinion. Never thought pink would look great on Homura!

    The reason why she looks great in pink because she's FABULOUS.

    galablue5 maand(en) geleden#75018326Wait, now I need to know ... did it work?It actually did, but only because I picked Air SP for shipping (I noticed that the amount paid for shipping is rarely if ever printed on the paperwork included). It's a "trick" I use quite frequently when ordering doujins or lower value items (mostly from YJA), because they don't bother taxing VAT below 5€ over here (and with the rate being 7% for books you're left with quit a bit of leeway).
