    maggie (1 maand(en) geleden) #54830853I honestly did balk at the price but after seeing a picture on a Japanese manga artist blog, I snapped him up IMMEDIATELY.
    Completely worth the price.
    This is not Di Molto Bene, it’s Sentinel who made this with their oversight. I wasn’t sure at first, and different website stated different producers, so I purchased after release just to be sure it was Sentinel’s project. Sentinel makes a damn nice figure, and this Rohan is no exception.
    He looks BETTER than the prototype, which I’ve rarely ever seen happen. Yes he’s small, but the sculptor who made him was extremely skilled with prototype to finished product knowledge. Seams are hidden marvelously, all parts fit together perfectly. Beautiful quality. Bravo, Sentinel!! I got him on the heels of Gwendolyn from Aquamarine (GSC distributed I believe) and I was more impressed with Rohan who was half the price.
    I was so impressed I’ve been considering doing a video review, which I rarely do. However, I’m not sure it helps anyone as he sold out pretty quickly with aftermarket prices instantly rising to around $108-110.
    People need to realize just because something isn’t 1/8 doesn’t mean it’s not worth getting or isn’t expensive to make. Higher quality comes at higher prices.
    I completely agree, his quality totally blew me away, and was really what compelled me to review him as well. I'm really glad Sentinel was able to handle most of the manufacturing this time around, since even more recent S.A.S. releases have been a bit disappointing quality wise.

    I also don't think many people preordered him (which is probably partly why his initial price was so high), so his lack of availability and price hasn't been doing any favours for aftermarket prices.

    Despite being a bit pricey, I'm pretty excited to see if Sentinel will create more of these. I honestly think Rohan was a great example of something outside of the Statue Legend line which looks great and doesn't have nearly as many flaws as some of the Statue Legends.

    noctisity (1 maand(en) geleden) #54785701Thanks for the review! I was on the fence for awhile regarding this figure and decided not to buy it in the end. I'm glad to see the sculpt ended up being pretty nice, but I couldn't bite at that price like many others.
    Also, a side note since you asked for feedback: The organization of the blog was great and easy to read through. All the photos from different angles and pairing the figure with other merchandise was also a huge plus. (I love seeing how figures scale against other goods/figures.) :D
    But if possible for next time, I would recommend getting a stronger light source on the figure (or perhaps increasing the brightness a bit on the photos), so it's a little easier to see finer details on the figure's sculpt. Otherwise great review!

    Thank you so much! The price was really hard to accept, and like others have said, 5-6k would have been so much more reasonable for it's size. I also sat on it for a few weeks too, which I think is a little sad since it seems like there are people genuinely interested in this but rightfully balk at the price.

    I'm glad you liked the comparisons to the Jotaro nendo and manga tankobons! :) Because of the lack of promo pictures initially on his page, it was really hard to hit home just how tiny he was, which to me was a bit deceptive especially since he's non-scaled.

    Thank you for the feedback on the light source!! I really appreciate it!

    Sundae (1 maand(en) geleden) #54762908I wish the Jojo stationery figures were more around the 5k price range, because I love the idea but I can't quite justify the cost considering the size. I'm glad you're happy with your purchase though, thanks for the review!
    illumi4Love (1 maand(en) geleden) #54759804Truly appreciate the review, I was concerned about the price and size. I'll pass for now, although I'm a big Rohan fan, it's just doesn't seem the right size for the price. Thanks
    The price is honestly not great. Hopefully he will bin eventually and you can pick him up!

    Nyangire (1 maand(en) geleden) #54747593I really wish GSC would make some figures, then the price would be more justified
    Yeah I hope GSC will continue their nendos and possibly expand their JoJo line so we can get better figures than what Medicos and Banpresto has been putting out.
