    Act (20 dag(en) geleden) #55657966Late comment but: I was also kind of ehhh about which Gwnedolyn to get, and while I was enamored of the wings on this, I ultimately decided I couldn't justify the price. Then I saw ITEM #28038 for really cheap and just... took the plunge. I was like 'ahh I may have just wasted money on a shitty old fig from a meh manufacterer' but I've been kind of floored by the quality. ITEM #28038 is absolutely gorgeous with a really interested base and no glaring flaws that I could find. If you're still iffy on this one, I totally recommend it -- seeing userpics of the Alter one does made me glad I didn't spend four times the price to get a worse hair sculpt.
    IDK what's up with big-name Gwen figs being so hit or miss. Can I ask what problems you had with ITEM #604449? I really didn't like the broken-back pose but I suspect that's just me.
    Can you really say late about a review though? I sure hope it’ll be helpful for people beyond those few hours – 2 days it’s been on the frontpage. Besides I’m always glad about people commenting. :3
    I get the feeling about the price, I still feel a little iffy about it but the Yamato Gwendolyn, or better the whole set, just doesn’t appeal to me visually. That’s not to say it’s a bad figure it’s just not my thing (I could’ve saved so much money if it was ;_;). Was Yamato a “meh manufacturer” though? I read somewhere they’ve been bought by Alter and go by Flare nowadays. :O
    The pose is actually what I like about the Aquamarine one, but she has a lot of QC issues (glaring seams, like on the spear for example, the kind of stoned looking face, a very subpar and grainy paintjob, the part with the writing under the base falling down by default because it hasn’t been attached properly etc.). It sure felt like a huge waste of money to me, not that my expectations were high, seeing how it’s Aquamarine.

    rogue_g (25 dag(en) geleden) #55092468From the official photos both Alter 1/8th scales looked really good in their own way, but when posed side by side... this one is just better. Color, sculpt, posing..
    Thanks for the review, hope you keep this one long-term despite the small issues!
    She is indeed, it'd be sad if she wasn't because the first release of ITEM #3671 is from 2008. x3
    I think I will, unless they make a new one in her armor that blows me away. ^^

    Jess-chan (28 dag(en) geleden) #54852247I never played Odin Sphere but I always thought that she was pretty. The figure is gorgeous!Oh, I'd definitely recommend giving it a try then, not only are the character designs in general very beautiful but it's a really great game story-wise too. :3
    She sure looks stunning, but I can't help but be bothered and slightly worried about some things. ^^'

    ilasja (29 dag(en) geleden) #54778768Thanks for the review! I'm a bit surprised to see the sculpt and paint on her hair so be looking so... messy. Seems like both Alter and Aquamarine struggled with her fringe quite a bit :0Yeah, that surprised me as well, it's not really the same level of messy at the Aquamarine one, but still nothing close to what I expect from Alter. Surprisingly the old Alter figure has the best hair sculpt out of the 3. -_-
