  • victorviper4個月前#76906781Doubtful. I have only a handful of Figmas - I'm just not a big fan of the teeny-tiny scale.

    Yeah even though I like the posability and accessories of most, they are indeed very small. Most of mine were bought on sale, I think I have only one smaller scaled action figure where I paid more than $50 for.

    Cloudberry4個月前#76907468Ah, Strike Witches, one of the first anime that introduced us to the combination of cute girls and weapons~
    I really like the attack mode the most. I think she looks great in that pose. Her blushing and regular face plate reminds me of grumpy cat though...
    And the grumpy fall gif made me laugh haha...


    They certainly weren't the first, but I think they do are one of the first with such a big main cast of girls with the weapons combination!

    Haha it's the ':C' mouth, right? Those faceplates are so awkward...I just had to make jokes about them, because they were shoved back into the box directly after this review.

    Do you think you might ever get this figure (on sale) for your SW collection?

    ZoidsFanatic24個月前#76863974Well none of the faces I have a major issue with except the first one’s blushing face seems a bit dirty to me. But that could also just be me and loving to play with my figures. That said the construction of my two are completely different. The first one fells looser and the tail was a pain to insert. Second one felt tighter and the tail was much easier to plug in. Plus second one was easier to pose and held the posers tighter. Could just be the first one was second-handed and displayed or played with before while the second was new in box.
    I still have all the pictures, so maybe I should rewrite some of those old blogs.


    Hrmm, interesting. So that is something that might happen to my copy if I change poses and parts a lot. The tail on mine went fine, it was actually something I was a bit scared about because on my SW Figma, their tails like to fall out at any moment.

    I think quite some people would be interested in that, if you feel motivated to do so. :) I had this 'other way around'-thing happening to me a couple of months back: Lost all my image hosting (text still there). I'm slowly fixing up those blogs but it's really demotivating when something like that happens...

    victorviper4個月前#76864387Interesting that this Barkhorn has lots of display options, but I agree that the face parts could have been better done. The only one that truly looks Barkhorn-like is the open mouth one; with the others, her face looks too...I don't know...round?

    It's hard to pinpoint for me as well, because her face is actually smaller than the Figma counterparts, but still it feels too...wide for me I guess. Luckily at least one face plate is good, so I'll permanently leave that one on.

    Maakie4個月前#76861877Hehe, I remember pictures showing up from her in your blogs! Maybe you have at least the pictures stored somewhere on your computer if the blogs don't exist anymore?
    My scoring also takes into consideration her price: Which back then was around the same for a Figma, but this A.G.P. throws a lot more parts and display options at you.
    Well, see this as a moment to add your gripes about this figure! Do you also have the same issue as me with finding 2/3 of her faceplates awkward?
    Thanks for liking the review! :)

    ZoidsFanatic24個月前#76844115Ah, my first ever figure. Even had a few articles just about her back in the day (really should have saved those). I’ve got to admit, that’s a lot more positive than I would say about her. Which is even more ironic as I have two, the second I bought specifically for display purposes.
    Great review!
