    Cloudberry1 maand(en) geleden#78824428Arrrrg. I'm always 50/50 about her; she's amazing and beautiful (and that box art tho) but after stewing in my own feelings about not preordering her, I'll *eventually* get over it by not having Yae... But damn it, she still one of the prettiest figure and for the price, I think she's still amazing deal.
    Which one do you like more, Yae Sakura or Zhen Ji?

    I love them both and I can't decide XD

    In terms of craftsmanship, I feel Zhen Ji is better... but Yae is probably more eyecatching due to the pose and base design.

    Actually, the major driving force for me to get Yae was the opportunistic cheap price XD, I would not have gotten her otherwise.

    evenstar881 maand(en) geleden#78764317You are welcome and thanks for reading! :) I love that the Chinese companies are giving their older Japanese counterparts a run for the money, I will gladly give these companies my constant patronage if they keep churning out beauties like this one :) Definitely same. I actually have their Skyfire figure on order for the end of the year (hopefully), and tbh I'm even more excited about her since seeing Yae first hand.

    billowsandsmoke1 maand(en) geleden#78763525I also got her recently! (RightStuf restocked a few so I nabbed her new for like $200 shipped). And tbh, if I'm going to spend $200 on a figure, this is what I should expect. The three (imo generally overpriced) A's (Alter, Aniplex, and Amakuni) can eat their damn hearts out. In fact, Yae also got me thinking about Shibuya Scramble and their whole "premium figure for a premium price" business model. Like sorry guys, APEX (and Myethos) already know how to treat a girl right, and they aren't trying to shake me down for it.

    Anyway, thanks for the review! (Among other things, I'm glad you spotlighted her shoes--they're also low-key my favorite.)

    evenstar881 maand(en) geleden#78731719 it amazes me that your favourite figure is something that can be considered as a polar opposite, I think that's fantastic!

    I amaze myself somedays lol

    I decided to send photos to a hardcore metal head today when he asked what my latest figure was. It isn't my latest but I wanted to gauge his reaction. I fully expected to be teased mercilessly, but his response was "that's a lot of pink mate, but actually she's my favourite so far, I will deny it and hunt you down if you tell anyone I said that though!"

    evenstar881 maand(en) geleden#78730440And thanks for reading!
    When I initially fixed the heel to the branch peg, the figure did move forward slightly - but then I adjusted her back into place (all the while with the foot peg still attached) and then she sits securely :) Just mind the figure while doing so to prevent any damage or that small metal peg snapping off.


    I am damaged when it comes to "bending figures". Oh! The trauma! The foot snapped clean off! I can't think about it!

    Anyway, I also was super nervous getting the acrylic plate installed--that thing would not go in and I had to stand up and use my body weight. I'm pretty sure my heart stopped a little haha~

    CloudKingdom1 maand(en) geleden#78729874Have you experienced the same? Maybe I have just been unlucky in some way, but I just tried again when I saw it on your review. I am legit scared she's gonna tip off the branch when her foot is attached to the small branch - lol.I also encountered this. I think I wiggled her around so that she's on the peg and mostly on the magnet, but I don't know that I got her quite the way they intended. I think she's mostly stable though.

    stars_n_kisses1 maand(en) geleden#78730444But as soon you mentioned Yae is heavy and the branch might likely bend down after a while, I sadly have to hesitate...Just offering my opinion, but I personally didn't think she was heavy. As evenstar said, you can never really know how a figure is going to hold up, but I will say that the acrylic is so hefty and the peg on the branch fits so tightly into it that I suspect at the absolute worst it might start sagging over time.

    Anyway, thanks for the review! (Among other things, I'm glad you spotlighted her shoes--they're also low-key my favorite.)
