spasepeepole026 (4 days ago) #11864612That's possible, but Alter has made many beautiful figures that haven't sold in large quantities, hit the bargain bin, or depreciate immensely in value after their releases. The response to any figure in particular is awfully difficult to predict it seems.
I think it's half quality and half hype. I know that apparently this figure has amazing colours in real life, it's a point that I've consistently heard from people who own Momohime. Of course there's the whole aesthetics thing (design, dynamic pose, relevant base that's not too big AND provides context).

And there's also the fact that she's so popular, so I think people are more inclined to buy it to see what the hype is. I didn't care about her at all when I first saw her, but over the years she kind grew on me... and now I've ordered her variant to see what she's all about irl.

Valestein3 (4 days ago) #11864455Do you think Alter has a hand in it? I'm not a statue fan, but I hear Alter is one of the better ones so maybe it's a company following too?
Or maybe Vanillaware paid A LOT of ppl to shill for Momohime xDDDDDDDDDDDDD

spasepeepole026 (4 days ago) #11864156But quite a few other figures have similar if not the same qualities and get sent to the bargain bin. This figure isn't particularly attractive to me for any reason, though I recognize why people might like her. Still, I'm shocked that she's one of the most desired figures that's ever been made, since I don't wish to own her in any way at all. I guess that's why they make more than one kind though.

Indeed.

jeremiah (4 days ago) #11859895I've always assumed that it's because she's pretty much perfect, in a general sense. Great coloring, Great detail, Great Quality, Great pose. A good balance between relaxed and very dynamic. Moe and sexy w/o being hyper-sexual. She's owned by a lot of women. She's a sword wielding samurai badass. She's got a good base. Truly she scores close to a perfect 10 in almost any category you could name. And to top it all off she has this mythic quality about her that no one knows why she has such a big following. xD

spasepeepole026 (4 days ago) #11858388I've always wondered the same thing. She looks OK, but she's not life changing by any means. Still, she remains one of the most sought-after figures around. I'm stumped.
