Ikumi Mito Meat General (Max Factory)Ikumi Mito Meat General (Max Factory)Review

ChocolateSpiderChocolateSpiderIl y a 3 ans
Howdy hoo, fellow collectors! Now that I am back from my vacation in Myrtle Beach, it is time for another figure review. As many of you know, the cooking anime "Shokugeki no Soma" has been renewed for a 3rd season. Today I am reviewing a recently released figure of my best girl from the series. Let's take a look at Meat General Ikumi Mito by Max Factory.

I like the graphics on the box. It features several design elements you might see on boxes for certain meat products including a circular branding label. She is the queen of meat dishes after all.

Very little assembly is needed for this figure. Attach the base to the bottom of her feet, put her hat on, and boom! General Ikumi Mito is ready to take command of your best girl shelf.

This figure is based on this page from the manga which is an illustration of one of her aliases, "The Meat General."

While this figure looks quite stunning, there is one instantly noticeable detail that was a disappointment to me. The base is just a plain black circle.

When you buy a figure with a price of 12,037 yen, I think we can agree to see pretty much nothing done with the base leaves a bad taste in your mouth. They could have at least put her name on it or something. Oh well. At least this is the only real problem I have had with this purchase. Let's move on to the figure itself.







I am quite please with how the face turned out. The sculpt and paint gives the face an exact likeness to her appearance in the anime. They even remembered to give her lips the same glossiness she has in the manga.

Her shirt is nicely painted using the traditional military shades of green. You can clearly see all the lining of the uniform and how it fits so snuggly around her curves.

Her boots have been well crafted and given a genuine leather appearance. I have noticed that this figure seems to lean a bit to the left due to the plastic around the ankle region being a bit soft, so you may have to have to fix that using some hot, then cold water like I have.

Nakayaman, the sculptor of this figure, has done a great job keeping this figurine faithful to Ikumi's curvy body. Not only does she have a lovely bosom, but a cute butt as well.

I've said it many times and I will say it again.
Booty is the everything of all things forever.

This figure also comes with an alternate torso featuring a camo bikini top. Along with the bikini top, this torso features several belt-buckle straps along her arms and her trademark wearable knife sheath with a butcher knife in it.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2017/07/21/1796511.jpeg




To be honest, I probably would not have bought this if it did not come with this torso. The sculpt and coloring of her skin is beautiful. You can see every little contour of her toned bronze body. Seeing her black thong peeking out is a nice touch as well.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2017/07/21/1796513.jpeg







Although it is unlikely I will have this displayed with the military torso, I do think this bikini torso looks extra sexy with the hat on. Now that is a general I would let command me any day.

Not only does her bikini top match nicely with her military pants, but it greatly emphasizes the ample mass of her bosom. Those are some A-grade meat patties, I tell you what.

The buckle strap along her arm are just plain coats of black and silver, but the borders between the two colors are precisely painted. I don't know why, but there is something super hot about a woman wearing a bunch of belt buckle straps.




The sheath of her knife is nicely shaded with a leathery brown in the center. It is too bad this figure doesn't come with an alternate hand or arm part for her to hold her knife though.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2017/08/04/1806817.jpeg






So here is my final verdict on this figure. While this is a very lovely and well crafted figure, you may find yourself being a tad underwhelmed for its price tag. The only real downsides of this figure are the boring base and it being prone to leaning.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2017/08/04/1806818.jpeg


I will attempt a DIY fix for both of these problems by making a custom base for this figure. Maybe something like a plastic steak or a cheeseburger. Ooooo! And maybe it can have big-ass cannons on it! It could be some kind of super bitchin' tank burger. This is the part where you should be taking notes, Max Factory.




This figure seems to have sold fairly well, but it can still be found at several shops. I would highly recommend getting it on sale or with a discount if possible, but this is certainly a lovely addition to my best girl shelf. I am looking forward to Alter's Ikumi, which I should be getting in a couple of months from Anime Island.




Thank you for taking the time to read this review. Now I have much to get to work on here on MFC. I need to make a ton of new sale ads for figures I am deciding to let go of, make a long loot post showing everything I have gotten between May through August, finish editing the special vacation comic I made at the beach and take pictures of my room for the room tour. The room tour is waaaaaaay overdue.




I also need to get to work on some more figure reviews. I am just now realizing that even though I am close to owning 100 Nendoroids, I have never written a Nendoroid review. This is my wake up call. I need to get my shit together. I think I will start with Naruto Uzumaki and Mai Shiranui since I got those in the mail last week. That is all for now. This is ChocolateSpider logging out!

I see you are a woman of refined taste and culture. *nods head in respect*

CicielyIl y a 3 ans#24351311I think she looks beautiful with the bikini top torso paired with the hat.

ChocolateSpiderIl y a 3 ans#24313743Well if they did have to choose between the base and the bikini torso, I would say the torso would clearly be the obvious choice. :3
Wish there were a reprolabel type solution though

CaptainZIl y a 3 ans#24312865This figure is pretty great specifically with the "fan service" piece.
I got this figure for less than 90USD shipped so for me it was incredibly worth it (doubly so because Mito is my second favorite girl in SNS).
That said the base is terrible MF should be ashamed of giving us such a base. Maybe the budget went into the extra torso?

I was seriously considering 1 star. But I thought 1 star should be left for bases that are ugly and do not do a good job holding the figure up. At least this base has no problems functioning. :P

redxmaverickIl y a 3 ans#24301007I have this figure too and really enjoy it as well! Love my tan girls~
I think all plain black disc bases deserve a 1 star. You're too generous with 4/10. lol
