The Idolm@ster Ichiban Kuji A-prize Cushion ReviewThe Idolm@ster Ichiban Kuji A-prize Cushion ReviewReview

The Idolm@ster was originally series of idol-producing games, but recently more and more Singles and CDs have been made. But I'm not going to review any games or CDs this time.

I'd like to focus on The Idolm@ster Ichiban Kuji A-prize Cushion I magically found for not that high price. Without third thought (yeah, I wasn't sure whether I should spend more money 'unneccessarily' or not) I've decided to order it through proxy.

This is what I've received yesterday:

In this case it's hard to say anything about packaging, since it's just a plain transparent plastic bag. I'd like to pay attention to the tag instead. It has simple, but cute design:

Let's take a closer look at the cushion itself then~

Image used on this cushion is the same as on deluxe multi-cloth from the same kuji: ITEM #141508. The difference is that on one side it's just cropped and on the other site yellow-orange ribbon and 'kira kira' blinks have been added. Art on the other side is even more zoomed in. Personally I like the side with ribbon more (●´∀`●)

I must say the cushion is also fluffy and springy, not flat and hard as rock~ http://i1164.photobucket.com/albums/q564/hipozaurus/MFC%20images/Imas%20cushion%20review/28bebf7e-7264-44d8-88e7-41b52b3456ed_zps5dfbbc97.jpg(sorry for my hand ;w;)
When talking about material I'm... not really amazed, but also not disappointed too much. It's similar to satin cotton, but not as soft as mentioned fabric. http://i1164.photobucket.com/albums/q564/hipozaurus/MFC%20images/Imas%20cushion%20review/679147e3-824d-4200-a11c-a5fd1220f292_zps56b77acc.jpg http://i1164.photobucket.com/albums/q564/hipozaurus/MFC%20images/Imas%20cushion%20review/4149a81d-8ee4-4a98-9f5a-422f424613e3_zps77078978.jpg at least it looks sturdy~

The last point in my review - size! This cushion is rather BIG, especially for prize item. It's approximately 65x43cm ⊙ω⊙ here's size comparison with my Futaba Anzu petit: http://i1164.photobucket.com/albums/q564/hipozaurus/MFC%20images/Imas%20cushion%20review/ac871f0f-d258-441a-be9b-1e21d776c8e6_zps3d4cd2a4.jpgBIG! That's one of the reasons why I like it very much (●´ω`●)ゞ

Summing up! I'm happy I've purchased this cushion. I love Idolm@ster, quality of the item is high and it's cushion (one of my weak points... ;w;). It's very colorful fabric has been nicely sewn and the filling is fluffy, which make this cushion even more lovely. Good job Banpresto!

And little casual bonus: http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2013/10/16/838852.jpeg

Well, it was sold out on the site now but found it on Mandarake for 4000 yen. Maybe overpriced but worth it if I have to believe your review!
hipozaurus is trying her best!
@mikki-malu: I paid ¥1480 for shipping by SAL Parcel~
Niiice :) How much was the shipping? I think of getting something like this sometimes but I'm afraid shipping is more than the item price itself so I pass :)
