Commentaires Fate/Grand Order - Cú Chulainn - 1/8 - Lancer (Orange Rouge)

  • I had to laugh at the trading figure having a better butt. :') Btw the trading figure also has a fiiiinneeee back sculpt, woah!

    But anyway, back to the figure the review is about: There are some more mishaps than I expected, but overall it's nice. I might be in the minority with liking the abs. I'm also happy that you're still happy with him in the end. :)

    Nice review again! ^^ The lighting/photography seems to get better with every review you do! :)

    Thank you! :3 That's very important to me when writing a review as well. Since I can't be objective (and in the truest sense of the word no human being can) I try to be self-aware at least.
    I was hoping that too, despite being hyped I can't say I hadn't any misgivings when he went up for po. In the end, looking past my adoration (which obviously clouds my judgement) it's not what I really wanted and definitely not what he deserves. But I'm still happy about it and I hope he sells really well so fans will be catered to more in the future. One to go with that Rin would be awesome, maybe we could something in the Extraverse design (though I'd be good with anything that doesn't look like crap).
    Honestly, I think the number one thing your reviews are excellent at is also kinda the most important thing--they're just super helpful and informative. That sounds obvious, but I'm not sure if people think about how that's rooted in having really keen visual analysis skills, and an aptitude for critical commentary. For instance, I was trying to figure out whether I wanted to get ITEM #604432 during TOM's Black Friday sale, so I went back to your review. Your insight helped me weigh the figure's strengths and shortcomings so that I could make an informed decision, and when I finally received it, I knew exactly what I was getting. On the other hand, just a bunch of photos or even a very superficial review wouldn't have been nearly as useful. (It was definitely a great buy, btw!)

    And yeah, I kind of feel that way about ITEM #871769 tbh. The face seems off in a similar way, but it's like, what are you going to do? Your Best Boy is your Best Boy. Fingers crossed for both more Cus and more Wavers down the road, though.

    Thanks for the picture heavy review.
    Glad I could be of help. I hope you can find him for a good price. :3

    BHEITHIRIl y a 7 mois#73289844Agree with the (kinda) neglected butt/body tights areas. They should've done better. Nice review as always!Thank you so much! :3
    Especially considering OR's target market, but well I still have that trading figure to console myself with. x3

    I'm personally really dissapointed by the figure, from seeing the initial prototype up until the finished product. They kinda dropped the ball with this one so I really hope Alter picks Cu up.
    Their Fate boys have been stunning so far.
    Thank you! :3
    Alter would be good, but I'd be fine with a company like Myethos as well. While I trust Alter with the Fate boys, most haven't been released yet, so I'll reserve my judgement until then. x3

    JosineIl y a 7 mois#73289585Thanks for the review and the many pictures!
    I'm still waiting for mine to arrive, I hope he'll look good next to ITEM #236266 ! I haven't figured out yet if I will put ITEM #603828 next to them too or keep him paired up with ITEM #775830. I didn't have this problem a year ago - so many male Fate figures came out, so many choices now!
    I wished they'd done his face differently, like a cool grin. But I'm sure I'll like him since it's his only figure.
    If I still had that Emiya figure I'd have made the comparison, but I sold him some time ago (and it's moments like these that make me regret it).
    I personally think Gil an Cú look good together, but the contrast between him and Emiya may look better. Ozy is a bit of a difficult case since he's so small compared to the others. :/
    Talk about a first world problem, huh? x3 But if this is what it feels like to be pandered to I dont ever want it to stop. I do agree though, I wish they'd have done his face differently as it looks too mellow for my liking, but well... I love Cú so...

    MLMjpIl y a 7 mois#73289578Nice review!
    The figure looks good overall although somewhat lacking in certain areas, face and hands mostly, I think they need shading and the skin tone looks rather yellow.
    And yes, WE NEED A NENDOROID CU.
    Thank you! :3

    Then again it could be worse, although I hope he'll get another figure in the future (maybe by another manufacturer).

    At least one I'd say!

    Cu's face looks strangely flat, especially the transition from his cheekbone to his ears @.@
    For his abs, maybe they're trying to do a dragonball Z-esque style? The various artwork for Cu always illustrate him with a huge six-pack.
    And maybe his butt is supposed to be flat? Cu is very slender once you go down past his abs anyways.
    Overall, it's not bad looking but compared to Gilgamesh, Cu feels like he's lacking something... or maybe Cu should go shirtless too I dunno ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Yeah, something's definitely off about it, but it's not terrible imo. At least compared to the illustration.
    Well I can't deny that and it's not really a complaint (though it hasn't been exaggerated to that degree).
    His legs are quite muscular though. I also explicitly mentioned that that particular complaint isn't so much about realism in any case. Still, if you consider a big part of OR's target market it's still a valid one.
    Ofc he looks lacking compared to Myethos's Gil, partly because of his character design but also because his figure didn't get as much love. But I'd totally be down for a shirtless Cu too (2nd ascension maybe).
