Muramasa The Demon Blade: Momohime 1/8 Scale

When Momohime first was announced and started appearing in online stores, I contemplated buying her quite a few times but always backed out of it. Originally I thought she was part of the new “Samurai Girls” series, however I later discovered she is a relativity new figure released from a rather old Wii game. I have never played the game myself, though I would like to when I have the money to buy it. Next on my list is The new Kingdom Hearts PSP game, and a lovely Miku figurine that I’ve had my eye on for some time.

First things first, the overall colour scheme of this figure is really eye-catching. I love a nice girly pink figure, can’t say i’m too fond of her Turquoise Obi, but apart from that I am very happy. I love the detailing on the flowers complementing her Kimono sleeves, I think these give the overall outfit a little something extra and keeps it from being too plain. One thing that really annoys me about this figure is the pose, yes it is a good idea in theory, though I find that when your are displaying her, her sleeve covers the entire top half of her body!  This is the reason I have taken the pictures a little more to the side, because straight-on you actually cant see much of her.

The stand is a really good idea and has a real unique feel, I really love how the stand is merged into the figure to create a scene. The assembly of the figure was easy enough, however I find that her hand will simply glide off if she is moved about.

As you can see the face isn’t as high quality as the prototype leads you to be, however I can’t be disappointed. I still feel the face is really beautiful, I love the expression, it’s so sweet. Her lips are a very light pink which I really appreciate. (Unlike the Koihime Musou Karin figure! ]:<) The detailing on her head-dress and flowers is top-notch, really looks the part!

Overall score: 8.2/10

This figures is just beautiful and perfect for anyone who doesn’t mind the awkward pose. :3

Samurai Girls: Senhime 1/8 scale

The newest figure I have received is the Samurai girls Senhime (Along with Momohime, but her review will be up later). As she was a gift I’m not entirely sure of her pricing these days, but I have seen it range from £65-£90 or around that area. Samurai Girls was a popular manga I believe, correct me if I’m wrong. It has recently become an anime series, though as far as I’m aware only the first episode has been made so far. I don’t know much about it, having only watched the first ep, but Senhime seems to be very impowered. There are 4 I think in the series of these figures, though if I’m honest Senhime is the only one I like, the others I have seen simply do nothing for me.

As you can see, the actual figure you receive is very similar to the prototype, so much so that i can’t see much different between the two! Her face seems to have more definition on the figure itself, and also the colours shown on the prototype seems to be lighter; this is espically present in her hair. Senhime tends to have an inviting look to her, despite the fact that she has quite a defensive pose and face. I find her very unique, the detailing on her kimono is flawless and I find this to be the most interesting part of the figure. Before getting her I expected the string from her spear to be plastic, however it is an actual string, this gives a nice effect but you will have to be careful to ensure it doesn’t fray. Slipping her spear under her sleeve and into her hand was very easy and smooth, as was slipping her feet onto the stand.

Okay first off, a lot of people are put off this figure due to Senhimes facial expression, and I’m not going to lie I was one of them. Senhime has been out quite a while now, after seeing her for the first time before she was released I didn’t like the expression but over time it has grown on me. I find it to be very unique and actually quite cute, whether its anger or embarrassment she is displaying I’m not to sure, I don’t think many people are.

Overall score: 8.2/10

Senhime is a lovely figure, I would say the best of the series.

Dynasty Warriors 6 Chibi figurines (Diao Chan & Zhang Liao)

After Dynasty Warriors 6 was released, chibi figurines of a few select characters were also released in two volumes. For those who live in the U.K they were offered as a pre-order bonus on GAME.co.uk of Dynasty Warriors strikeforce (PSP). Zhang Liao was part of Vol 1. and I got him for free when I pre-ordered the game, Diao Chan is part of Vol.2 and I bought her for about £10 on Ebay.

These chibi figures are very small, so unless there is chibi of your favourite a character then there’s not much point in getting one. They are very cute, epically ones of pretty tough looking warriors! They are squeee worthy! The detail put into the figures is actually really good considering their small size! Diao Chan  particularly very bright and colourful, so if she is one of your top characters, at such a cheap price then I recommend buying it.

Isn’t he cute?! (Sorry about the rather crooked image, just my bad photography skills!)  I am most impressed by the detailing on his armour! Being so small I would have guessed he would be simply painted grey, but in fact all the indentations are present. His expression is also very nice, just the mix of him looking so tough and angry on a chibi figure is really appealing!

Overall score: 6/10

The reason I have scored them quite low is basically just because of their size. I would LOVE a large scale figure of a Dynasty Warriors girl, maybe next time though! If you love the games and the characters, since they’re so cheap just get one! 😀

p.s I will be getting the Chibi Kunoichi Figure from Samurai Warriors 3.
