Belldandy 1/8: Everybody has wings

Most anime fans will know of the incredibly popular Belldandy from the romantic comedy “Ah! My Goddess”.  I myself am a big fan of the anime, however I am yet to watch past the first series. Surprisingly I got this figure for a tiny £15 (Approx $25)!! I saw her in a small store, I had no clue she was worth so much more than that when I bought her on a whim, on eBay she comes in at around $90 – $100 or so. My figure is not a bootleg either, I guess it was just a lucky find! Though it may be financialy smart to sell her on I am going to keep her for now.

Here is a full length picture of my figure. Every small detail including her jewellery has been taken into consideration and been painted with the utmost care. Everything about this figure is just stunning, the paint-job impresses me the most simply because I cannot spot a single smudge! I’m not sure what Belldandy is meant to be doing in the pose, floating or something along those lines, but the angelic feel of this figure really complements the character. When it comes to Belldandy there are plenty of figures of her out there, but often they do not seem to do justice to the character in my opinion, this figure on the other hand certainly does! This is epically present in her hair and face, the colours staying true to the character the whole way through.

Sorry yet again for my appalling photography skills! Ahem..anyway, the face of this figure doesn’t leave anything to complain about. It is highly detailed, she has the perfect expression for the pose, and her eyes seem present and cheerful. I’m trying to find a con but to be honest I can’t seem to find one! The only thing I can complain about is the fact that she is quite small at only 1/8, but this does not compromise the quality of the figure!

Overall score: 9.3/10

p.s guys I am going to be away for a couple weeks! Therefore I wont be updating until I get back! Leave me lots of comments to come back too! ❤

Final Fantasy X 1/6 Scale Yuna

Finally! My new cable arrived, and I can now take pictures of my figures for reviews. I’m sorry about the long wait to anyone who has been checking in. As previously stated, I am going to review the Final Fantasy X Yuna statue by Kotobukiya. Unlike Rikku and Lulu, Yuna can be found for a pretty reasonable price, though you are very unlikely to find her in a trusted figure store and will have to resort to the likes of eBay. No need to worry though, there are no bootleg versions of this figure! I’m hoping to later provide you guys with some helpful tips on spotting bootleg figures and safe figure shopping on eBay.

A very accurate and beautiful representation of the beloved Final Fantasy Heroine. Like the other two figures she also has a plain black stand, she fit into it very eaily and there was no trouble in that front. Her staff is removable, but why would you want to remove it?! Paintwork is very accurate, and I can’t complain of any smudges or unprofessional-ism, one thing that does bother me though is the colour of her skirt. In-game it is a vibrant yet dark purple colour, on the figure it is extremely dark and is ALMOST a blackish colour. The detail present on her obi is one of the most beautiful things about this figure, the flowers lacing around the yellow sache is amazing!


Not the most impressive work of facial paintwork I must say, and it isn’t as detailed and well polished as Rikku and Lulu. I think this is because Tidus (Who is of pretty bad quality compared to the rest of the collection) and Yuna were the first made and released, as the collection went on the quality got higher. This is one of the reasons Lulu is so expensive as she was the last in the series. Saying this though there is nothing particularly horrible about Yunas face, it not that fantastic either, somewhere in the middle i’d say.

Overall score: 7.8/10

Phail!

I am waiting on a new USB cable arriving in the post for my camera! It is soo irritating because I can’t really review (& therefore update) my figures without it. I’m sorry to any who are following my blog, and don;t worry I have not abandoned it just yet! When my cable arrives I will update straight away, I was thinking along the lines of my 1/6 Yuna or Belldandy. 😀
So please keep checking in! I’m sure it wont be long now!

I have put the Rin Kagamine cosplay on sale at eBay so please check if your interested!

P.S guys I got my Hatsune Miku world is mine figure today! <33
