figma Hikaru Shidou Mini Reviewfigma Hikaru Shidou Mini ReviewReview

Mew-Lidia9Mew-Lidia91 maand(en) geleden
Magic Kight Rayearth was one of the earliest anime I started watching after discovering the internet (and that videos could be watched on the internet, RIP my dad’s internet bandwidth), only the 1st season, and a few years back, the manga. I quite liked the character designs (although the mecha aspect isn’t to my interests), so I’m happy they got figures, but it was at the time of this girl’s release that Max Factory or GoodSmile company started increasing prices and decreasing accessories T_T, for now Hikaru is the only one of the 3 I have * looks at 2nd hand prices of the other 2* and probably the only one of the 3 ever…
Btw, thank you sis for another amazing birthday gift, you seem to know when I’m too cheap to buy something myself <3<3

Anyway, let’s welcome the fiery shorty, Hikaru ITEM #287728

What she comes with is as usual the figma bag and stand, with the L-shaped connector piece, 2 extravwrist joints (one for each wrist) and 4 extra hands (only 4? Really, for her price? That’s skimping if I can say anything about it, the hand rack is blueish btw). Her character specific accessories are 2 extra dace plates (smiling, shouting, smiling with eyes closed), extra bangs with cat ears and her sword (it’s nicely painted in metallic and has a detachable hilt for ease of sliding it into her wrist). She’s super bare bones, especially for her price (which seems to be a trend for newly released figmas the past few years).

She has the basic (post #200) figma poseability, extra joints are a small figma joint at the base of her braid (slightly limited by her hair), a ball joint at the tip of her braid which pops of quite easily), some slight movement of her shoulder armor(hard plastic), and a bicep swivel on her left arm.

Her ribbon and skirt (sculpted in 2 pieces) are made of soft pvc, the chest has nice range of movement and lastly, the wrist cuff piece on her left wrist limits the movement of the hand.

Paint wise, she’s pretty good, only a few paint bleeds around the golden parts and some red staining on her hand due to the sword. She is also painted according to the manga color palette, with more pinkish than reddish hair.

Although I don’t have the other girls to compare, her height definitely seems to be on the shorter side (only slightly taller than figma Sakura and Homura, and shorter than S.H.F. Sailor Saturn). Otherwise her sculpting and proportions are quite nice, love how he bangs blend into her messy hair.

On the shelf, looking quite like a magical girl shelf in some places XD

Really, the figure is cute, but at that price, we could easily have gotten a few flame effects parts or other things, and even more hands!!!!! Although this review has quite a few complaints, I’m still glad I have her.

Dear GoodSmile Company and Max Factory, you’re being total, greedy moneygrubbers!!

Thanks for reading<3

Tweezey1 maand(en) geleden#104185827I'm a bit sad for u they are cutting down on the accesories. I still have them all in the blister thingy in the box but seeing them in pictures is real fun. Idk if its the placement on your shelf but this figure gives me almost like an aura type vibe. I think i like her most with cat ears. Anyway great review as always ty!!
AS usual, thanks for reading, and sorry for the late reply ^^; With current figmas it seems if you want more accessories, you need to buy the 'dX versions', which comes at a really premium price T_T
