iThe Meruru hair fiasco - thoughts?n/a

Alright, so we started with this lovely picture of the upcoming Meruru figure from Phat Company.

The colors are beautiful, right? The soft pink and yellow just go together perfectly; in fact, everything goes together perfectly.

Recently, however, we get some new product pictures.

Pretty ugly, in my opinion.

Now. What do you guys think? Is it a lighting mishap? Is it better than the original? Did they just screw around with the prototype a little and everything will be fine?

In any case, the figure is released tomorrow, so we'll find out soon enough, I guess.

To me, its not the hair color that's off, it's the brightness of her corset...the new pics make it look very mustard-yellow. A little too bright to match up nicely with the hair. Shes still cute, though..I'll have to wait and see about this one and see what the reviewers say.

The lighting was horrible in both of the new photos, so it's hard to justify whether or not her hair is actually that faded.

Seems horrible for me X____X
hope it's the photo quality or the ligtning, but I don't think so... the yellow is too strong =[

As far as the neon yellow, that could be a lighting issue (where that photo was taken, there might be fluorescent lighting) and the base suggests that the figure photographed might be a prototype. As far as the hair, it's hard to say. All the colors in picture #728501 are pretty muted, so it's hard to say. Phat's Totori is far from perfect, yet she's still OK, so I'm just going to hope for the best.

Unfortunately that's just how things work in the figure industry: the fine print on item pages that warn you that the prototype is only that, and that the final figure may vary lol.^^;;

This might just be bad lighting, or maybe it isn't. Only sure way to know is when she is released and people start posting photos of her.

Meruru is my most anticipated figure of this year... so I'm holding out hope that it's just poor lighting. All the figures in that shot look super flat. I've still gotta preorder Totori too... >_<
