For anyone that was wondering about this figure/line:
Sturdy, no loose parts. Paint apps are decent, there is some sloppy work but really not much, eye decals are placed fine. I'll try to get some pics up later today.
Does the articulation hold up to Microman standards (which is to say, fucking awesome)?
This is an important question. I need to know whether the Arts will be worth picking up when they start making something other than animu grills.
>that's him big sis, that's the guy that stole my panties!
It's nice to see something released in the microman style, but anime girl microman is nowhere near as cool as the real thing. I guess that's where the market is at these days though.
The articulation and possibility are there, what you would expect.
Lewd. Though the division of the abs above the panties looks weird as hell. Why didn't they just make the panties a separate piece and set the torso balljoint lower, like Max Factory does? It kind of looks like she's wearing granny panties with a flesh-colored band at the top.
Yeah sorry if pic is misleading
The skirt isn't "supposed" to come off but I don't mind the look without it
here is a comparison of one with figma #38
The backpack can get crushed if you step on it, the only durability problem I see might be the the soft plastic/pvc that covers the front knee joint, i could see it tearing if you're a mad man with bending te leg back and forth but you could always do the mod seen in:
if that ever happens
can someone that has OPs pictured figure post a closeup of the eyes?
I'd probably collect these if it was from an anime I was familiar with. I'm not familiar with KanColle yet but I'm honestly afraid to learn about it because there's so much merchandise to buy from it I'll go broke.
Toys are just getting more expensive now. Revoltech minis are around that price now aren't they? Sentinal released a new version of the classic Microman with added articulation and a backstrap. I think more are on their way. They're sadly the same price as the Kancolle figures. I guess that's just how much this scale of figure from Japan are now.
Japanese prices will steadily increase along with the consumption tax in order to persaude people to spend their money rather than save it. It's due to a flawed economic perspective that is championed by those in power around the world.
The sooner it fails, and it will, the sooner Japan will have to ease back on their immigration rules.
Sadly there is nothing we can do about the price, they should be cheaper because they're smaller when compared to other poseable figures in that price range. But thats just how the market has turned out as of late;
however, I like to believe that most of these figures are worth the price in terms of quality and fun you can have.
This is closest I have, she is number 3 from right to left.
it probably had to do with the led inner workings
he is pretty big for a microman
What was increased over the originals?
Also, I'm very drawn to that figure because I love the old Microman aesthetic, but goddamn, dat price. I also very badly want to hang it on my backpack as the strap indicates, but I am deathly afraid it would get stolen or broken.
Brought one to test the subline and I got to say, I'm pleasantly surprised. I thought the promo pics made them look a little cheap but the real deal looks pretty good given the size. Love the cylinder case they come with, will make them real easy to store and keep clean when I'm not messing about with one. I think I'll pick up a few more, maybe try and see what the Love Live subline is like.
There's an enemy ship who is like some loli in a hoodie. I'd love some of those, especially if is just the same character in the different colors that comes in the game. White, yellow, red and blue right?
fuck it. I just ordered one off amiami (specifically the on in OP) since the dollar to yen is doing so good right now.
I'll let you guys know how it is when I get it.
Post some pics too, if this threads still up. Hopefully she'll work with all my Joe and SW weapons and vehicles.
I'm assuming they are?
I wish Kancolle had better designs, the main designs are all miko shit with Shimakaze and the other kaze thing standing out. The enemy ships are cool too but good luck getting one of those.
