About

I've been on MFC since 2012. I really enjoy writing figure reviews, and one of my goals is to eventually produce a review of every figure in my collection that doesn't have a review on MFC. I hope people enjoy reading them as much as I like writing them. If there is some figure in my collection, you'd like to see reviewed, let me know!

Sorry if I'm making you ultra jealous with this, I just wanted to share my happiness with another Komugi fan! <3

It's the base of item #5888 :)

victorviper (6 months ago) #14468543That's good news! Hopefully you will get some memento from Watanabe.
If you're trying to get something signed and you don't want to drag figures around (of if they won't sign bases), here's a possibility. item #5704 and item #5703 as well as item #1297 and item #1298 are all based on Watanabe's designs, and the packaging for those figures has a removable card on the back with an illustration picture #1245140 . Most of those figures are cheap and relatively easy to find, and those cards might be a good candidate for a signable item.


Oh~ Those are nice suggestions, thank you! :)

With the short time-span I have, I'm afraid it would work only if I find one of them locally! >.< Even EMS shipping gets hold in customs for multiple weeks over here, so quickly buying something from Japan is also not a possibility. :(

I asked the con if it's allowed to only take the base of a figure with me, I hope they reply soon! For now I decided on my Griffon Komugi.

I'm a bit sad they were so last-minute in announcing him being a guest! For many years I wanted to do a Komugi cosplay...if they let this know earlier I could have worked on it for this event!

Screaming

A con I will be visiting next month just announced Akio Watanabe as a special guest!!! :OOO

No news yet if he will give panels, if there is any chance for signing etc...

I really really hope there will be the possibility to sign items! Then there will be the hard part...

item #12994 is my favorite Komugi figure, but she's badly damaged and I have been thinking of replacing mine...

item #5888 is my 2nd favorite and her way too big typically Griffon-base would be perfect for siging! But the whole figure is so big and fragile, most famous artists will not sign only a base or piece of plastic, they need to see that it's merch. So I can't only take the base with me...

Anyway, I'm super excited! Can't believe this! :D

The holes for my straws aren't even big enough. Any additional force would break 'em. Thanks for the reply tho!

You couldn't get the straws in on the new Alter Sanya Eila fig either huh?
