  • victorviper1年前#64411949It would be interesting to see a customization of this figure, but I guess the question is if it is worth the amount of time involved. A total sanding down of the figure would be needed to get rid of all the rough patches, and then the paintwork on her stockings seems like it would be tricky.
    Taito does seem to be trending up in terms of quality, though. I just got ITEM #756832 and it's really nice!


    When it comes to money, no. The "worth" will really depend on the person. So only if you really want to make something unique with this Shimakaze and/or have the skills to make her perfect, it could be "worth" is as a personal project. I'm still a bit in doubt what to do with mine, but for now I like her displayed like this with Ro 500. :)

    I saw some user pictures of that Miku and she's indeed super nice! For me, this Taito Miku got a special place in my heart: ITEM #795826 . The shoes, the pose, the super cute face, argh! I have held myself together and not bought her (yet) as I first want to know if I have any shelf in my display where such a figure would fit.

    Maakie1年前#64377789I'm curious if this figure were made now, if her 'bored' look could have looked better. I would love to see this expression executed well to let her look more like her original artwork than most other figures do.
    I'm still thinking of customizing this figure, but I'm a bit scared with how rough some of the plastic looks, it will be hard to try to get everything smooth...hrmmm. :(
    I really remember from my older reviews from Taito figures that the general mindset of most collectors was "Taito is one of the lesser quality manufacturers", it's amazing how much they have improved! They are especially booming with their adorable Miku line nowadays. :)

    victorviper1年前#64352229- 'Bored' look in her eyes, which is true to the original design of the character, although it looks a bit strange here.
    - Original sculpt is decent, it's mainly that in mass production execution was not done that well, such as the rough parts.
    I think you've hit it on the head here. The concept of this figure is a good one (and the base design is actually quite clever), but in the end all the painting errors are just too much to overlook.
    It's also interesting to see her next to Ro-500 to see how much better the figure could have turned out with a little better quality control!
