Her box seems like Sakura Kinomoto's Angel Egg figure by Plum...

I think she's really cute and I'm waiting for my PO to arrive, but somehow I'm not too confident if I'm going to keep her..especially the point with her hair seamline bothers me a little..but I think I'll just have to wait and see how she looks like in real...anyway a great review, and I think your Photo skills and the review overall were really good :)

Thank you for the review, it was helpful! Now, especially after your conclusions I decide to give her a pass uwu
GSC's Aoki Ume one looks much better~

Koto figures almost always have a very obvious hair seam. I wonder why that is?

Thank you for the review. She is quite cute. I believe a lot of Madoka franchise figures end up going down in price in the aftermarket though, so she wouldn't be a bad purchase if it does. There's just so many Madoka figures to choose from at this point and they keep making more. I only have one Koto figure so far, item #269686, and I am pleased with the quality.

I also love airmail and wish Mandarake had it too. Lately it's been slower than 1 week for me though. Had an airmail package delivered yesterday and it took a whole month and they charged me customs on top ;_;

Thanks for the review! I've learned to not expect much from figures made by Kotobukiya, and I knew her price tag was too high for the quality we'd get. Yes, she is sweet, but I'd only get her for maybe $70.

rufusdrumknott (1 month ago) #19623736Ooh, is that so? This is my first ever figure from Kotobukiya, but I'd heard mostly good things about them - I sort of had the impression that they were close behind to GSC in terms of quality? So I was surprised when she turned out not entirely to the standard I'd expected. But absolutely she is a super adorable figure! I'm very happy she was made, she's just not quite worth her current price tag.
I find Koto to be very hit or miss. While you can be sure everything Alter and GSC make will turn out great/amazing, Koto's figures can range from "eh..." to "this is actually very well made!"

It only just occurred to me to check her promotional images, and would you look at that! They originally gave her skirt the correct pink-fading-to-white colour scheme!

If the prototype had the same block pastel, I'd be fine with it since it's as much as I could expect, but now I just feel betrayed orz. I can't say you've left a great first impression on me, Kotobukiya ...

The Kotobukyia Madoka looks great from afar. However, once you get close to look at her details, she seems underwhelming. Thank you for the review!

Asagoe (1 month ago) #19618250Is she doing the "rock on" hand gesture? I have no idea what the theme is for this figure, but it's great! Nice review
SomeStupidGuy (1 month ago) #19623401I don't think so. I think it's a fox or some other similarly shaped animal since a figure I have, Fate/Extra Caster, does the same thing.
(btw, I don't know all of the bbcodes yet, so bear with this noob on how to use the proper one when linking to figures ._.)


Haha I don't think it's the 'rock on' gesture, at least! I thought at first that it's supposed to a rabbit or some other cute animal (well, you never know!), but seeing that Caster, is it possible that this is the moe way of signing 'I love you'? :p It's a bit off from the conventional sign, but it's kind of there.

PS SomeStupidGuy, you can make a link to a figure appear as the green 'item #' phrase by just pasting the link. item #61381

Jenthehen (1 month ago) #19623324I've found that for some reason 1/8 scale anime figures from Koto don't seem to be as nice as their 1/7 or 1/6 scale. She's still cute, though!

First of all really nice review which covered up all the important parts of this figure :)
Seeing and reading what you had to say about this Madoka makes me realize that it was a good idea to wait until she was available. I think this figure is very typical for Kotobukiya 8)
