    BVibes (Il y a 1 mois) #57226815How nostalgic! I had no idea CC had any kind of merch. I still listen to the OST a lot and River Belle Path definitely has one of the best songs.
    Thank you for the awesome review! It brought back some great memories. What clan did you tend to play as? Did you ever get to play multiplayer?


    There is a bit of merch out there! My personal favorite item from the franchise is ITEM #645768 and I hope to find ITEM #215888 one day. There are also multiple Mog plushies made ITEM #736384 , which are nice, but I doubt I'll ever find them for sale anywhere.

    I started mainly playing Selkie, but later preferred playing with Yukes for their magic power. Although my personal favorite in looks are Lilities, such cute things! Clavats are the only ones that didn't really interest me much, even though I set up new profiles multiple times with both male and female ones. ^^'' What about you? :)

    Regarding the multiplayer, I tried to set it up back in the days with multiple of my friends, but most of them found it too long-winded and just preferred to play shorter/faster games (like Mario Kart or Smash Bros) whenever we got together on the GameCube. The multiplayer option is nice, but the only way for it to 'work' is if you really dedicate time with someone to regularly play (almost like a D&D or boardgame group lol). I have tried for a long time to get my husband into starting a multiplayer with me, but have not succeeded yet. I take it you didn't play the multiplayer or have 'bad' experiences as well?

    I'm happy to read you enjoyed the review! :) I love this game so much I can ramble for hours and hours... :')

    victorviper (Il y a 1 mois) #57230372Interesting. I didn't expect to read a review of a crab figure today :).
    The original Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for the GameCube is in my opinion the best installment in the Final Fantasy franchise.
    That's kind of a Final Fantasy hot take! I think most fans of the franchise would say that either FF7, FF6, Tactics, FF4, or maybe even FF10 was the best installment in the series.
    Looking forward to the Rocket Booster Sanya review!


    Hehe, I didn't expect to buy a figure of a crab either, but when one of your favorite games lacks in the merchandise-department... ;) Luckily I'm very nostalgic to this boss fight and the quality of the figure is very good!

    Well, I always try to get people into Crystal Chronicles, as it's really IMO the best FF out there, but with the ones you say, I also like Tactics a lot. I have a bit of a weak point for multiple of their spin-offs. Crystal Chronicles will soon also get an HD version for the Switch by the way. :) Nothing is changed to the game as far as I know, just the resolution is bumped up to look good on newer screens.

    lesser-robot-cat (Il y a 1 mois) #57101747Thanks for a great review! Seeing it from all angles paints a better picture than the box art.
    I don't pay enough attention to the Creatures line, and I really should. The photos of this figure brought that battle right back! I've got my GC out... maybe I should play Crystal Chronicles again.


    Thanks for liking the review! :) While writing on it, I could hear the boss battle music in my head...haha! This game always deserves a replay. ;) I definitely recommend to look into this figure line to check if your favorite monsters are in there! Some of these go for quite big amounts like Kimm also mentioned below, but a good chunk of the line is affordable as well. At least this guy is super affordable!

    illumi4Love (Il y a 1 mois) #57078956I'm a HxH fan so I love wall of texts lol. Gotta say I am impressed with the details on the figure, and the fact that you opened your article with information pertaining to the game the figure is from was awesome. Thanks

    I try to keep the backstory/general information short, but I always end up typing a lot more than it should be, haha. Glad to read it was appreciated. :) This trading figure is definitely impressive for it's size/age/price!

    Kimm134Saya (Il y a 1 mois) #57077112Yup, I also have the crystal and metallic variants of the Creatures (which reminds me, I should create separate database entries for them here). The metallic ones are pretty cool, with a mostly dark silver finish and just a touch of one color in select areas. The clear ones are crap, all of them. Since there's no paint, no friction is holding the pieces together. As soon as you have assembled the figure, most of the pieces just pop out. This is even more frustrating on Creatures with lots of parts like Sleipnir, Necron, etc.
    I did notice that there are almost no collectors for the variants, so I just give them away for free whenever someone buys from me. If only they changed the clear variant to an alternate color variant...


    It's nice to hear that at least the metallic variant is interesting, it made me re-check ITEM #285071 and I indeed see some blue metallic accents at it's feet, which I did not notice before.

    Clear variants are in 99% of the cases crap and although I own multiple from other sets to complete the collection, by themselves I barely have anything positive to say about them. So yeah, if I pick up another Giant Crab, I will go for the metallic version for sure. :)

    Luckily for us the 'clear variant version'-era seems to be over, I don't think I've seen any clear variants in a set being made in at least 10 years. I still have multiple clear variants wished to get some other sets complete, but I only pick them up when I randomly stumble upon them for a good deal.

    Maakie (Il y a 1 mois) #57076387Hehe, I have done quite some mini reviews! :) It's nice to do inbetween reviewing bigger pieces~ Especially my next review of Sanya is going to be a 2-parter for sure! >.<
    Their details are sooo good for their size. I'm pretty sure their sculpts would work fine on prize figure sized items as well~
    Do you have all 3 variations from the Giant Crab? Anything interestingly different about the other 2 variations? I might get them for completionist sake, but I think this one looks best.
    I currently don't have any others from this set in my collection, but I used to own ITEM #12287 which looked amazing as well.

    Kimm134Saya (Il y a 1 mois) #57075468Wow, I didn't expect a trading figure to be reviewed, but this is great. Before I started collecting the creatures, I thought their sizes were around 4 to 6 inches based on the photos. I was surprised to see that they're just around 2 inches! The details are too good.
    I have 7 of Giant Crab at the moment, and hundreds of the other Creatures and Creatures Kai, but I still don't have everything. Collecting them from blind boxes is frustrating, but getting them individually can be too expensive since some cost as much as ¥20000.
