Koto's Aiyoku no Eustia: Eustia Astraea Figure Review!!Koto's Aiyoku no Eustia: Eustia Astraea Figure Review!!

maraiatorimaraiatoriIl y a 5 ansReview
Today I'll be reviewing Kotobukiya's Eustia Astraea 1/8 exclusive figure. I haven't played the game and don't know too much about the character herself, but she's been on my wish list for quite some time and even traveled up to my holy grail list!
Got her off of Manda for 16k without her goodies (poster, laminated scroll, artbook), but even without that included the box was HUGE. Despite the horrific shipping fee, she came in 4 days and was unharmed ^^

Her database page: ITEM #72376



Alright, let's start with the box~!

Dynamic pose, contrasting colors, unique base and graceful wings to finish it up. With all of these qualities, a figure just cannot look any more epic.
However, there is no figure out there without any imperfections. Quality control is the reason for most of these blemishes, but I got her pre-owned so I did expect there to be some sort of issue.

Koto, I thought you were better than this!

Luckily a lot of the seam lines and scratches aren't noticeable from afar, but Koto definitely could have improved the molds.

Damn, almost everything comes off!

Her skirt's pretty bland to be honest. I appreciate the little shading details and folding though, that was a nice touch.

Sexy time!

She's cast off, so you can choose to display her without the skirt, or hell just display the legs is you want!
Speaking of legs, I lovelovelove her legs. So much. They're so long and delicate~
The small details on her thighhighs were pretty impressive. Her shoes are also nicely painted and they are overall really cute.

By far the best aspect of the figure are her wings. Not only do they greatly impact her size but they also complete the figure itself. Without the wings, I feel like this figure would be cute but not to the point where I'd pay 100 let alone 160 USD.
The wings are transparent and vary in color. When they glow it just looks amazing!

And last but not lease, her base!

I honestly don't know what her base signifies; I'm guessing it's her power that's coming from underground? Whatever it is it definitely compliments the figure. The tips of the curves are also transparent, and the base is pretty unique and definitely stands out from the rest of my collection. Great job with the base, Koto.

Welp, here's my review! All in all I'm happy with this figure, Koto did a spectacular job and produced yet another masterpiece. Although quality could have been improved, she is definitely worth every penny.

8/10!
Thanks so much for reading my review!

I only buy figures of characters I know and like, but I can understand why you bought her without knowing much about her, she looks really good, BTW 5 star for that last picture with the flowers.

I have her and also find her gorgeous. When I first saw her proto I just knew I had to have her, and preordered without hesitation. I got the wallscroll and clear poster-thing and some card. No artbook, though.

I haven't noticed any blemishes or imperfections on mine. Though I don't really scrutinise figures for specs. If it's not visible at a normal viewing distance/angle, I don't really care. I do notice things when I shoot with macro lenses, but even the most perfect figures show issues under such scrutiny.

Some of these photos are too big for the width of the column, btw. :D
