    Hoshiyo_Rina (2個月前) #40235711Thank you for your charming comment! I've been trying in my later reviews to get more of a comparative scale to things. That said, Cecilia is on the smaller side of 1/8, reminiscent of figures of that scale produced before 2010. I really like her too and I got her at a nice bargain bin price so it's a win-win for me. Unfortunately, the second figure in the Monster Gathering series just got cancelled barely a couple days before it was supposed to be released... I got the message from Amiami saying is was discontinued maybe a week before release.
    I've written a bunch more reviews since this one and have been working on new content so, if you'd like, I recommend to check out the rest of my blog! :)

    You're welcome. The review was very useful, I'll be sure to check out your others, especially since it appears you're a Vocaloid fan ;) Aw that's a shame about the Monster Gathering series, it had potential. Cancelling a week before release is cutting it a bit short.

    Ayanami17 (2個月前) #40224002Thank you for the review :) I really love her concept and illustration, it's just a pity about the execution. Kind of like the contorted leg, it's not too extreme to be impossible like you said. There's some definite issues like the seams and the gap in the arm. Haven't come across that many places stocking her, at least not for a reasonable price. Also waiting for her to be added to the database. Would like to pick her up at some stage if the price is right. Not exactly a good start for a new company though to be producing a figure with defects like this. At least they are hide-able on certain angles but nonetheless. I'd like to see some size comparison photos against other 1/8 or 1/7 figures.

    Thanks for the review! I always find reviews of niche/smaller company figures especially helpful because they bring attention to a figure most people may not have heard of. I think I'll keep my eye on this company because their concepts are interesting.

    blueberrywaifu (6個月前) #34200446Great review, I'm glad you ended up liking her! I don't think she is coreplay's first figure though, I think that title goes to this lovely lady: ITEM #473919

    Damn...that's an elaborate setting/base for that wee girl...LOL!



    Love your figure, she's super cute and unique, and I LOVE that she's munching on a blood bag, LOL!! Thanks for sharing her with us!

    Nice review! I saw this figure for sale on a few sites, and while I absolutely love goth girls, it's unfortunate this figure didn't come out as well as I hoped.
    Maybe I could go for it at a bargain price, but idk...

    MillyParis (6個月前) #34197959I think she's pretty, but the seams are kinda funky. FOTS Japan seems to be doing a lot worse regarding first figures, their newest release, an O.C., comes with broken fingers because she's packaged so poorly :'(
    Thanks for the pictures though, never really saw this figure before. :)


    She does have some funky seems but they somehow aren't that apparent when you look at her regularly. I actually do like her quite a bit! She's totally my type and, despite her obvious flaws, I'm glad I got her. I would have preferred getting her for less than 9000 yen (shipping and all that included) but still, I think COREPLAY will get better over time!

    And thanks for your comment! It's my first ever review and I'm glad it's not being hated hahaha
