Today's LootToday's Loot

StephieHerbertStephieHerbertIl y a 3 ansLoot
I got a couple boxes in today so I decided to write a loot for them. In total it's 6 figma - Snake, Guts Berserker Armor, Asuka, Snow Miku, and Hitagi.


I had been on the fence about getting Figma Snake due to the price so I ended up missing the window to order him on Ami Ami along with the other figmas for this month like Criminal, etc. So I instead ordered him from Hobby Link Japan. After receiving him, I'm really glad I decided to get him since he is a very nice figma.

The other five figma were ordered from Mandarake pre-owned. This was done due to being very disappointed that Lucina and Kirito were both delayed. I had actually ordered 3 each of Lucina and Kirito so since they were delayed I didn't suffer a price difference really even though Guts is pretty dang expensive. He now takes the cake for my most expensive figure.

I didn't open Hitagi because she is actually a repeat figma for me that I plan on using for a custom. I do enjoy my figma from that series though.

So first up is Snake. He actually comes with a fair amount of accessories even without the GSC bonus. While I haven't tried out the parts that allow him to hang off the side of something, I really think it's a neat feature. I plan to do a more thorough review of Snake later this weekend.

One of the first things I noticed about Snake is that he has a few different joints than other figma. For starters his shoulder has a joint that is is typically used for thigh to hip joints. I think this was done to give a wider range of motion in his shoulders. I'm currently undecided as to whether I like it better, worse, or the same. Here is the joint compared to Makoto's for an example:

The same type of joint is also used in the upper torso which is very unusual. Torso joints have been done in a variety of ways within the figma line with the double ball joint being the most common, like in Eren. But several also have joints like Makoto's (which is basically like a shoulder joint, two balls then a pin), and a few use just a standard figma joint. I think this is probably the easiest type to work with.

Next up, we have Guts Berserker Armor Version. It's one that I've often wanted to buy, but felt it was too pricey. I currently own Guts Hawk version, Griffith, and Casca. I'm looking forward to getting them all displayed together.

My Guts did come with the Manga and some post cards that look really nice:

Here is everything he comes with:

I really love that sword.

Since my SAO figma were all ready for their GGO Kirito, guess they'll have to play with him instead.

Next up is Asuka. I've never actually seen Evangelion, but I've always thought Asuka looked cute. I actually bought the pink suited one a really long time ago when I first started collecting, but I accidentally broke it's head so I put a new head on it...

Anyway, my absolute favorite thing about Asuka is her expressions. Those are some cute little faceplates. She has quite a lot of accessories too.

When I first started collecting, I wasn't planning on owning any Mikus just because I was opposed to all the hype she got and I didn't want to be apart of that. The Racing Miku figmas won me over though and now I'm collecting all the figma Mikus. I have about 10 right now. I really love the shy faceplate with this one as well as the blue and white coloring. I think it about fits with her better than her normal coloring. The detail on the hair is also very pretty and the snowman was a cute touch. She'll be extra cute with Snow Bell Miku when she comes in a few weeks.

I haven't taken many pictures of Canaan yet. I honestly don't know anything about the character, but I've always thought she looked pretty cool. I'll have to try and find out more about her.

I've been spending a LOT of time playing Fire Emblem Awakening lately, but I'm gonna break myself away for a couple of reviews - Snake and SHF Harley Quinn. I also have a few custom figmas coming along.

MarionEtx (Il y a 3 ans) #3105829Oh the woes of those creeping Figma prices; that Guts is one of highest I've seen. Thanks for showing those joint comparisons, I'm always too scared to take mine apart aside from head swaps.
I'll second Kotorii's recommendation that you should watch Evangelion when you get the chance; it's a solid piece of work. As for the figmas, I found they had a few issues like Asuka's floating breastplate and the handles of the 'chair' that always fall off. How was your figure?
Miku is cute, but I like the snowman even more! I was never into Miku either, until I saw the append Figma. Now I want a few of her scales (send help). She's definitely a siren!


Yeah Guts was the second highest priced on my list. Insane Black Rocker Shooter costs even more than him and she's the last one I need to have all the BRS figmas. If ever I have a month where I have no pre-orders I might consider getting her.

My Asuka is pretty good so far. All of her joints seem nice and tight. I've noticed the boob thing in general on those figures. The arms for this chair seem to fit tighter than the other one I have. Those arms do fall off all the time. I think perhaps a ball joint might have worked better there.

I bought the racing Miku with the little crown (I think it's 2013). I liked that she looked like a princess and I was considering head-swapping her with a figure i liked better, but I did kind of fall in love. I bought the 2012 one next and she was uber adorable. Now I'm only missing one racing Miku, plus I have the live stage, 2.0, and Append versions. Plus I get two new Mikus next month. I need help too.

KingSabah (Il y a 3 ans) #3105659Nice review and loot post! I'm jealous of your Guts, what price did you decide to shoot for him at? No less than 100 I'd bet - especially considering you got a version where the manga + postcards are included :)

Yeah his price was very hefty. I paid $120. It was pretty painful. It's like $30 more than any other figma I've bought.

Nice loot!

You'll like to know that Canaan is from the series of the same name and was done by Type-Moon, who also does Fate.
