    And with this, my pick is out of the running. I guess I shouldn't be surprised though.

    Also woe betide the figure that goes up against Benten...

    Sure her design and prototype are marvelous, but sadly, I can't say the same for the released product.
    ANY good quality figure is better than a poor quality controlled one in my opinion, no matter how stunning it looks in comparison.


    I much agree a poor quality control figure, no matter how awesome looking in pics, is worse than a simple well QC figure.

    Olivia is the first figure I regretted buying (and I sold her) due to terrible quality control. She falls apart and has zero shading, and not well panted to begin with.

    ipwnboyz (5 years ago) #2615413- Glued base, her foot came off.
    - Her wings. Yes, as tight as they were they still came off on their own, probably due to weight not being well distributed. I tried pushing them back in but they were slowly pulling out regardless.
    - Her torso, due to the wing's weight, leaned backward, not being fully connected.
    All of these issues could only be resolved with the usage of glue. The figure would not stand sturdy by itself. While I do like most of Koto's figures, and will still buy many more from them, this one's doesn't deserve any praise coming from me.


    Sorry to hear about that. I can definitly understand your reaction, not sure how I would have reacted if mine was like that.

    Azyx (5 years ago) #2615316I do hope Hatsune Miku will offer Benten a decent battle if both win this round. I personnally prefer what GSC did with Miku than what MF did with Benten.
    Benten vs Miku is gonna be an interesting battle.

    Azyx (5 years ago) #2615316EDIT: And about Sallya Vs. Dark Angel Olivia, the poll isn't finished, in the monthly poll Dark Angel Olivia was in advance during a few days (2-4) before Sallya passed her.
    Dun dun dun :p

    ipwnboyz (5 years ago) #2615352What I expected was to have a figure that wouldn't fall apart which is, I believe, the strict minimum of what one's should expect for that high of a price tag.

    Azyx (5 years ago) #2615316She's still a great and impressive figure, seems like people expected more than they should have, it was done by Kotobukiya, not MF or Alter.

    She's still a great and impressive figure, seems like people expected more than they should have, it was done by Kotobukiya, not MF or Alter. For me she's good enought, but maybe I was lucky on mine as I don't really have any major paint screw up and so far I don't have any problem with her base either. As for Sallya, she's nice, the QC was excellent, but I'm totally indifferent to her, her sculpt and pose doesn't appeal to me, there's also something bothering me about her and I can't seem to find what.

    kevinlowl (5 years ago) #2615161Even with the quality control issues? But it doesn't matter anyway, Benten will own them all, haha :p

    Though QC wise, Benten isn't the best thing MF produced. The silver thing on his leg got downgraded in the final product.

    I do hope Hatsune Miku will offer Benten a decent battle if both win this round. I personnally prefer what GSC did with Miku than what MF did with Benten.
