Hello, everyone!

Welcome to my first review and thanks for clicking. ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
Today I'm reviewing one of my recently acquired figures-- one that I've had my eye on for quite some time and was lucky enough to get from a fellow Canadian seller from Reddit! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Tokyo Otaku Mode & Myethos' exclusive collaborative effort:


☆ Holo - 1/8 - Wedding Dress ver. ☆

First thing's first, she's been well looked after, which I am very grateful for.

Why don't we start with her box?

Now, I haven't owned any of Myethos' other figures before, so I'm not sure what's exactly standard for them but I have to say their box of Holo sure has one thing I love... a compact size!
It's roughly about 9"W x 8"L 11"H, not too much bigger than the figure itself and not at all excessive. While it is small, the packaging is good and she felt secure and safe in the box!
The design of the box is right, too, featuring the art the figure is based on on the back, with her eye-catching bouquet of sunflowers on the front. I may be a little biased as sunflowers are my favourite...

The inside of the box is quite charming, too. With a nice painted blue sky painted background. That, alongside the gold decals on the front. you could even use it as a display box if you wanted!
Overall, I give them box a solid 10/10! No complains here!

★★★★★★★★★★

Now, onto Holo the wise wolf herself.

I love the atmosphere this figure has. She is so precious-- Myethos did an amazing job capturing Holo's personality in their own style. You can really feel her joy looking at her!
Now, as for the quality of the figure itself, I don't think it's anything outstanding. The sculpting isn't particularly detailed or sharp, this is particularly obvious when you look at the ends of her hair and the sculp work on her flowers. The painting leaves a little to be desired, while I love the pearl finish on the dress, the skin and flowers are both a little flat.
There are a few minor defects/mold errors (much easier to see in my images here than in real life, I assure you!) in her hair (the one in her bangs is most noticeable) and around her mouth, but nothing offensive or overly noticeable.

Overall it surely comes together to be a beautiful figure with a unique presence regardless.

I would give both the sculpting and painting a admirable 7/10. It's what I would expect at her price point. MSRP that is... not what I paid for her in the aftermarket, haha! ಥ_ಥ. Looking at Myethos' other figures user pictures, her quality seems to align with their other items, too.

★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Next, we let's look at her base!

I love... the idea of this base! I also love how it looks along with the figure. But looking at it individually... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Don't get me wrong, next to Holo it looks great but and gives the figure a good and unique presence. But on it's own it seems a bit lackluster! I just wish it had a bit more sculpting in the grass, maybe closer to how ITEM #525327 is done. I feel like the figure has her hair and dress blowing in the wind, so it's a bit of a missed opportunity to not have the grass long enough to also blow in the wind. But that's just my personal preference. I still really like the base overall and god knows it's still leaps and bounds better than most bases out there. I'd give it a good 8/10.

★★★★★★★★☆☆


Now... the for anyone curious for her undergarments, please have a look under the spoiler line!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/03/2706534.jpeg
I tried to take a picture of the front of her pantsu, but it's hard to get an angle as she doesn't come off her base! (;´Д`)

Nothing too special under her dress, unfortunately! Just basic white panties. Another wasted opportunity imo. I mean, it's her wedding day! A garter around her thigh in place of her missing anklet would have really elevated this figure to the next level! But it's not like anyone would see that when it's normally displayed anyways...

One last thing I'd like to mention is her scale and size!




https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/03/2706540.jpeg

here she is next to ITEM #1006896 which is a fairly large prize fig. I think Holo's pretty standard for a 1/8 in height, but she does have that signature ~long limbed~ Myethos style, which does make her head seem a little smaller than Holo's usual art style. While I wish she was a 1/7 scale, she still has a large presence and is very captivating on the shelf despite her smaller scale.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/05/03/2706542.jpeg

Overall, I'm so happy I added Holo to my collection! I give her a 9/10 over all!!

★★★★★★★★★☆

She is a gorgeous figure and I would for sure recommend her to any Spice & Wolf fans. Especially if you can find her at a decent price, so keep an eye out! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧



Thanks so much for taking the time to read my first review! What a lovely way to spend my day off this was to take some pictures and write this up. I hope to write more reviews in the future!
'Til next time! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

SakuraUchiha2 dag(en) geleden#96254037Not a fan of the series but I came here lured by the figure itself. It just looks so beauitful and lively. I don't know what it is about wedding dress figures but they just give off such an elegant vibe to them.
Ooooh, I so agree! I especially love Holo because she just looks so happy-- how a wedding day should be! :)


Meowchh2 dag(en) geleden#96288280Don't know much of the character but they're a really pretty figure! I love how her wedding dress is big and flowing. The base fits nicely with the figure's theme too :D
Thank you for sharing your review!

If you have any interest, you should totally check out her show, Spice and Wolf!
Thanks for looking!~

LittlePisces3 dag(en) geleden#96253475I knew right off a bat it was a Myethos figure! Welcome to the Myth club! ^_^ -snip- They actually did improve over the past years. I can tell between my Stardust (2017) and Little Mermaid. (2019) But I am biased over Stardust because she's a grail and she still looks beautiful. ♡
Aww thanks lol! Myethos figures really are recognizable, aren't they? They really have their own style, that's for sure. Long limbs and delicate features! Usually unique and elaborate bases, too!
Overall I'm still super happy with her and happy to see that Myethos has kept their prices so great while all the other companies seem to be inflating, so it's great to hear their quality has only gotten better!
I'd love to get my hands on Stardust myself, she's a beautiful figure.
