    victorviper (8 months ago) #30628333That hair issue is pretty minor, but it's sort of one of those things that I'm surprised no one really noticed before the figure went into production. Or maybe someone did notice...
    I don't think there's too much risk of Mikan becoming a leaner. Her other foot is pretty much in contact with the base, and the way her weight is distributed, I think she'll be OK. If the mass of the figure was constantly pulling at the attachment point, a la ITEM #137123 , I'd be worried...
    Happy 2018!


    Yeah, it's minor, but it's still something that from up-close is a bit...yeghhh. In general hair streaks (even those not wrapped around fingers or other body parts) can be a bit blunt with figures. It will take some more years of figure development before hairs will look a lot better on all of them. :)

    Oh yikes, I see what you mean with ITEM #137123 ! And yeah, re-looking at this figure, I think she will be quite OK. If I remember it, I will check back with you in a few years, haha!

    And how rude of me to not think of it in my previous message! A bit late, but a good 2018 for you too! Let it be filled with many figures and good things for you and your family and friends! ^^ My 2018 is starting off better than 2017, so I'm pretty stoked for what is to come! :)

    Maakie (8 months ago) #30622747Thanks for this review! She is so cute! I agree that the twirl of hair around her finger looks a bit wonky, but next to that she is almost perfect! :) I do hope her pose keeps on looking that well and she won't become a leaner over years time... >.<

    sailormatlac (9 months ago) #29941187Once again, you knows how to sell a figure!
    That one was on my list and I didn't take the plunge (having mainly pre-ordered too much stuff this year and having serious space issues right now). Your excellent review convinced me she turned out to be cute, nice and sweet as hell. She will stay on my wishlist for a while, until the price settle down a little bit.
    It certainly blends perflectly with her eyes and hair color. That said, yellow is a softer color that fit wells the character. Certainly more sweet than sexy, and it suits Mikan better.


    "Cute, nice, and sweet as hell". I like that, as that is a pretty good description of Mikan :).

    I agree that the yellow lingerie suits Mikan well because of her eye and hair colors. Also, while most of the other girls in this figure line have a bride thing going on, the yellow makes Mikan look more like a bridesmaid, which is probably appropriate. Although, she is known to joke about marrying Rito from time to time...

    I suspect Mikan's price will eventually stabilize a little closer to her original suggested retail price, as even the Momo from this line (who was really expensive for a while!) has come down in price during the last few months.

    victorviper (10 months ago) #28418053Why not? :)
    But seriously, since most of the other girls' outfits in this line are white, pink, or blue, I think the yellow color makes Mikan stand out both in the illustration as well as in figure form.

    I can agree with your point of view.

    Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Gandalf (10 months ago) #28426202Good review, she's a really great figure. I'll have to go back and check her left hand to see how they did on mine.
    What bothers me slightly is how MF are handling bases. Mikan has a nice solid square metal peg to support her. But for Nana they went with 2x plastic pegs that are begging to snap if you don't correctly remove her from her base. Oddly inconstant when you consider they released a month apart.


    I suspect the hand issue will vary among individual figures, and maybe I just got one of the bad ones. Fortunately, it's out of sight.

    I'm with you on Nana's base, and that design just seems like a problem waiting to happen. The way she's standing on the side of her heel and standing on one foot to boot means there's almost no area where she's actually in contact with the base!

    It doesn't look bad but, you tend to associate weddings with white, no?
