Just came in the mail, going to unbox in a minute. I have the angelic island Yukiho on its way soon, and I also preordered the Onoda Sakamichi figma .

This is my first fig, and it's pretty cute. Going to have to explain some stuff to my parents though.

Just got, $100 and shipped in just three days. Sadly, she's too tall for the aquarium I planned to use as a display case so I'll have to figure something out.

Yeah it's pretty awesome. Lots of accesorries. The only issue I can see is that the 3D maneuver gear seems to be crazy delicate.

Pretty nice, though I already broke a peg on the gear due to poor design that put too much load on it. Nothing some superglue won't fix though. Boxed up Mikasa today sadly because I don't have a decent case.

From tohno_. Already managed to break one of the things off of her arm pretty much right away. This one was actually my fault unlike >>2824
Probably fixable though when I get around to it.
>> No. 2833 [Edit]
You mean those black little bar things that come out of the wrist? Yeah that'd be easy to fix and wouldn't be noticeable unless you go overboard with glue.
>> No. 2834 [Edit]
Yeah I'm sure it'll be fine. I have to get some more superglue and I'll probably fix the other one at the same time.

The box design is great however, and for now I'm not ashamed to display it in the box.
>> No. 2848 [Edit]
It looks like it'd be a fairly simple fix just using some strong glue. Plenty of surface area to apply the glue and it wouldn't be visible.

Got my first figma today. He's really cute! I've currently posed him but can't be bothered to build the bike until the weekend. Way more flimsy than I imagined.
>> No. 2857 [Edit]
You go, Onoda-kun!

I was considering getting him too, but I'd rather wait for Maki.
>> No. 2858 [Edit]
Nice, could see doing some really cool poses with the bike. Figmas are pretty flimsy but the joints are usually sturdy.
>> No. 2860 [Edit]
I really wanna get Makishima too but I'm not too sure if I really want him... that sounds off.
I dunno if they've announced any other characters, there's others I'd prefer like Manami, Kinjou and Tadokoro (amongst a few others)... maybe I'll just get each and every one one day if they do.

I just ordered my first fig. To be honest, figs were never something I was particularly interested in, but this Inazuma one looks cute and was incredibly cheap, so I just couldn't resist.

Also, I thought it would be quite neat to put her beside the actual ship she's based on, so I also ordered my first model kit. I'm actually extremely worried about how the assembly is gonna go, as a complete lack of experience and knowledge with these coupled with absolutely zero arts and crafts skills and a massive case of clumsiness is a perfect recipe for disaster. I do hope that if I take my time and research a bit, it might end up looking vaguely like a boat at least.

This showed up today. Shame I only have the Miho to go with it for the time being.
Thing also needs a fair bit of work with detailing, it's completely unpainted bare plastic.

So a while back I saw bootlegs of the figma archetypes were popping up on ebay. I felt this was a good thing due to the offical ones being insainly expensive and uncommon, and for no good reason.
I got one for under $20 compared to the $80 the offical versions would run. You know, I wasn't really expecting much from a bootleg, but I figured there's be no way they could fuck up something so simple. It showed up with some very visible dark spots on the chest, head, and some of the hands. The real funny part is the hands included with it are almost random. it came with two repeats, and two that are missing.

Congratulations, anon, they both look amazing. I'm not even a Zelda fan and I'm slightly envious.

Thanks but they're released until May, I just preordered them. The thing is they were finally made; it was ridiculous that the most beautiful concept art from one of the most reputed videogame franchises ever, didn't get medium range figures for over a decade.

I got him at a Gamestop for $15, of the two I check this was the only one I found. They also had one Tails and both store had some Knuckles plushes but neither had any Sonic plushes. It's nice to have this one since neither of the Eggman versions, Classic/Robotnik or Modern/Eggman (whatever you want to call them at this point), have many plushes at all that are very good. This one has a very nice fuzzy feel to it and it's nice to play with his noodle-like limbs and feel his mustache. He's nice and squishy so I'm glad I bought him, this line is much better than the usual Sonic plushes that have been released and look very cheap.

My Mamako figure arrived. I think this is what is called a scale figure but I’m not entirely sure, I just know it’s probably the biggest figure I own so far. Hopefully there won’t be too many more because those things take space. Thankfully this one wasn’t particularly expensive but that seems to show. There are parts in the mold where the plastic isn’t completely uniform and smooth. All the important details are done well but it definitely has a cheaper look as you can hopefully see in this higher resolution picture I’ve posted.

The cuts are not extremely well done. The paint seems to extend past edges like on the frills of her skirt, the collar, the elbow straps, and just about everything on her outfit that is a fabric. The armor pieces and leather straps don’t seem to have this problem as severely.
The details themselves all look like what they need to look like. All of the important things on her design are there with added folds on her skirt. and her pantsu
I don’t know how figures are made but the mold looks a little gross and odd at times. The torso looks good and the dress extends just slightly out from her back as if to look more like actual clothing yet the breasts seem to bulge just a bit from the breast section of her dress as if they strain the outfit. I don’t know if that was intentional to make it look like her breasts are bigger than the outfit shows or if it’s a mistake in the plastic but somehow it looks a little gross here. What also doesn’t help is that if I look at the plastic too closely on her skin and hair it looks a bit gross there too. I know it’s plastic so obviously it’s going to look like it but I thought figures would pretend to look like anime skin a little better, so completely smooth, yet this has a kind of synthetic shine with slight imperfections, a kind of “grain”, though I don’t know if that’s the word. I suppose that is an inevitability of plastic. The skin has some imperfections such as slight lines, likely having something to do with the molding. The hair lines are all there and the hair gets darker in certain spots so there was definitely attention to detail on this. Lastly she has a slight yellow spot on the back of her left leg that looks like some kind of paint got stuck to it or it might not have been smoothed down properly. It shouldn’t be hard to just scratch that off with my fingernail but it’s still an imperfection I feel the need to mention, even if it’s only exclusive to my particular figure. The base is a plain white circle-shaped base. No logo, no ground environment, nothing.

I paid $35 for this figure and got, by my own standards, some good quality for it. I think I like it a little more than the other Mamako figures I have seen out there. They look like good figures that keep her character in mind but they seem to focus on fanservice while this one focuses on, what I feel at least is, the central part of her personality: a mother. Her arms are open, her fingers spread out, her palms facing towards you but still angled down and out, her head tilted slightly with her eyes focused on you who receives her soft yet enthusiastic smile. It conveys everything that I felt was most important about Mamako as a character and for that I prefer it over the alternatives I could have bought. Those figures probably look nicer and I would be lying if I said I didn’t want a figure of Mamako in a bunny suit, having her clothes be melted off by the slime, a shiny one-piece swimsuit, or holding groceries, but what I like most is the pose that communicates most effectively who she is and directs her affections towards you. It’s encouraging, cute, and faithful to Mamako’s personality without giving you more of the “hot milf” trend that I’ve grown sick of. I could live without those other figures that I would need to pay well over $200 for so I can look at some hot mom booty, something I could just look up pictures for. But cute mommy hugs are rare and the treasure I seek. Maybe someday I can buy myself a Mamako nendoroid but those are pretty expensive so it might not be too soon. Either way, I greatly prefer cute moms over sexy moms so having something of the former makes me very happy.

Despite my usual habits of making long-winded posts, I think that is just about all I can say this time without this post becoming even more tangential. If you want to read a little more about the quality, see my post about my swimsuit Mamako figure (>>3794) except this one is, surprisingly, a little worse. I know this is just a prize figure so they aren’t usually the pinnacle of quality but still, it’s strange to imagine and see that a smaller figure made just for holding down a ramen cup lid actually has higher quality than a larger figure that I thought would have been easier to add finer details to. Not to mention that anything the ramen figure does wrong has excuses for it’s shortcomings. With all that said, contrary to my many listed complaints, I’m very happy with the figure. The main reason I’m listing all these is to contribute a post and mention things that might be relevant to anyone on this board considering buying their own Mamako figure, the sort who would notice many more flaws than I did and much more easily. But the flaws I noticed aren’t the kind I would see unless I looked close, otherwise, they’re minimal. I personally would recommend it to any Mamako fans but I’m also not aware of how high or low some other figure collectors’ standards are so keep everything I wrote in mind.
