i#407 Ryuko Matoi (Kill la Kill) Nendoroid Reviewn/a

Hello! I've decided to post here my Ryuko Matoi's review instead of posting it on the blog and then link it. Sorry if my english isn't that good >_<

Few weeks ago I received I received two parcels, one from a friend of mine with Mami Tomoe Nendoroid (I'll review her later) and one from AmiAmi.com! I paid her 4560 JPY (Air Small Packet shipping included)

So, here AmiAmi parcel:

(I opened the box few hours before taking the photo just to gave a look)

Here we have AmiAmi's card, with their thanks and email:

Front,two sides and back!
In my opinion, the box has a super cool design and I love the new boxes, they're like modern and fresh, especially with the transparent circles.
On the plastic screen on the front there are red kanjis of Ryuuko's name.

So, the set contains:
~1 Ryuko Matoi
~1 scissor blade
~1extra leg
~1 scissor blade case
~1 extra Senketsu part
~4extra arms (a pair is full, so arms and hands, the other pair doesn't have the hands)
~2 extra hands, one with the red glove and one without the glove
~2 extra faces, a tsundere one and a angry one
~1 sheet of stickers, you can use them to decorate the scissor blade case
~1 extra neck joint (not shown in the photo,sorry!)

So, from one to ten I give:
♦ Packaging 9/10

♦ Posing: 10/10

♦ Painting/Sculpture 9/10

♦ Accessories 9/10

♦ Base 8/10

♦ Cuteness 678/10 (♥)

I have tried all the parts (I didn't take enough photos, sorry) and in my opinion she's a great nendoroid; she's really cute but she also looks like the real character! The packaging has the same main colours related to Ryuko, the posing are exactly like the ones she usually does in the anime. The painting is just perfect, she has also stripes on her pantsu and her red flash is awesome! Her accessories are really good, in the box there's everything you need to have a perfect Ryuko and the base is like the other ones so it's okay.
Good Smile Company did a great job with #407.
Now I'm waiting for Satsuki-sama, yay~


Next review will be about Mami Tomoe Nendoroid!

I have a question, i've heard some people say that oen of her arm pegs is bigger than the hole u put the peg in and thus one of her poses doesn't become possible eventually, is that true?

ymous (2 years ago) #2391445Nice review! If you hadn't mentioned your english I would've thought you were a native speaker, honestly! Also, semi-unrelated, but...can we see your nails from the top?? They're so long! Are they natural or acrylics??

Oh my, this is like a compliment to me, thank you♥ About my nails, they're natural! But they were a bit weak and they broke a week after taking this photos ;v; they were like this: [ext link ]

mei-tsuyu (2 years ago) #2391235Hello!
I have to say that she's really cute and since I love Ryuuko (and nendoroids) I decided to pre-order her without thinking (and so bye bye money).
I opted for Air Small Packet but I don't know why, I've always ordered not only nendos but also other figures (like the Play Arts Kai ones). The first time I chose ASP because I didn't have a lot of money, I have to say that it's a decent service and I received figures in 14 days (I live in Italy).
I paid the nendo 3170 JPY + 1,390 JPY (shipping).
About EMS I do not know what to say since I've never tried it, maybe soon I'll have to choose it (Mandarake doesn't have other shipping options). I think the price will be around 1500~1800 JPY (it depends on weight) but I'm not sure, sorry!


Awh, thanks for typing out such a detailed response! The data from your shipping experience will go a long way for me in the future.

I'm not a huge Madoka fan, but I'll be looking forward to your Mami unboxing!

Ugh, I'm so torn on this Nendoroid. I absolutely love Kill la Kill and Ryuuko, but this figure never captured me at first sight. I've begun to warm up to it, because all the scales and prize figures are pretty average atm. I think I'll snag it, if I'm able to combine it with another order form AmiAmi.

Your user pictures also make the Nendo look a lot cuter than the official ones, haha. She looks a lot less chubby for some reason without a professional photo setting.

Also, what made you decide to opt for Air Small Packet? I'm pretty new to collecting, but AmiAmi has this Nendo for ~3200 Yen, so wouldn't EMS be almost the same price if you paid ~1400 Yen for shipping? Please feel free to correct me if I'm completely wrong ^^.
