So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]
Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]
I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]
It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]
So it’s not really live, and it’s not really a concert since there was so singing involved, but you can use your IMAGINATION! Here we have Max Factory’s Hatsune Miku Figma. I jumped on the Hatsune Miku bandwagon a little while and now have the figma and the Nendoroid. Soon to have the PVC as well.
I should address the fact that this is my first figma review but not my first figma. I didn’t want to jump and do a review when i knew nothing of other figmas and had nothing to compare them to.
Now my first figma was Lelouch, the followed with Konata, Kyon, Suzaku and now Miku. The quality varies on each figma. I was initially impressed with lelouch’s range of movement and portability. So much so i took him with me to Merida, Meixco.The Konata had some issues with her bangs falling off, and my kyon came with two left arms.
I really was ready to give up on Figmas but then i say a deal for the Wonfes Suzaku Figma, i had to get him and since his quality was just as if not better than Lelouch’s my confidence in figmas rose. I decided to keep my pre-order for this Miku figma since it would also complete my set.
I’m glad i kept that order, since Miku here is really such amazing quality. I find myself playing with her when bored at my desk more than i did with any of the other figmas. I just love her range of movement and how even with joints she doesn’t look like an Action Figure.
Now i mention Action figures since i never was a fan of them. I hate joints, i really hate joints. I don’t know why but they just don’t look good to me, and seeing obvious joints bugs me greatly. But have no clue how Max Factory did it but the joints are barely noticeable to me. Instead of looking at their joints i look at their paint and faces. I love the faces, they bring such life to the figmas.
She just looks so excited to be singing to her adoring fans. She doesn’t look like a doll standing around.
She really looks like a pop idol. It’s so easy to pose her and find something that looks good. That’s another thing i love about the Figma line. No matter what pose it seems natural. Regular action figures can’t pull that off.
She comes with double leeks as well.
I really feel like the Figma line is something i can get behind on. I do still have a few more figmas on pre-order and don’t expect to cancel them anytime soon since i’m still overall impressed with their quality. One thing i notice is how each figma increases it’s quality with each release.
