The artwork this figure was based on is the very famous artwork for the cover of the first book. However, when making this figure, they went for a completely different posing. There was also a small change made in the design of her clothes, which I don't really understand. On the figure she seems to wear an extra vest with similar colors on top of her normal vest. I re-checked a lot of book- and anime-artwork and screenshots of her outfit, but never saw it there. So it seems like the sculptor at Kotobukiya thought it was a nice addition to her outfit?

This figure is completely adorable. That poofy and cute outfit together with her big hair, big shoes and cute backpack is a great combination!

Unfortunately, just like with a lot of others in this set, her pegs are not a good fit and I can't get both feet in the pegs at the same time, as the other foot will pop out if I try to do so.

Her face is really adorable and the details in her outfit are sculpted and painted well. I think the shading and positioning of her hand is well done. In this specific picture you can also get a better look at the 'mystery' double vest.

There are quite some creases sculpted in the clothes. On the backpack, except for some silver clasps, the detailing is quite simple.

The buttons are well done and the skirt itself has a high amount of shading, with it being a bit light blue at the bottom.

She gives off a bit of a yandere-vibe if you look at her from below, though...

This is also the figure in the set with the most obvious panty shot, and Kotobukiya definitely knows that, as this one comes with the most detailed panties. Very frilly white ones with a small pink ribbon, cute!

Size comparison

As earlier mentioned in this review, these figures are quite huge for trading figures.

Here are two of them together with two of my POP Wonderland sets: Thumbelina ENCYCLOPEDIA #25821 (reviewed here: BLOG #40142 ) and Little Red Riding Hood ENCYCLOPEDIA #25822 (reviewed here: BLOG #40292 ). As you can see, Ink is almost double the size of the Wonderland girls!

Here they are next to some older scaled figures and one prize figure from character designs of the same artist. These scaleds and prize are about the same scale. The trading figures are a bit more than half the size of the standing prize figure displayed here and are about the same height at the sitting/kneeling scaled ones.

In summary: These girls are huge for trading figures!

Positive
- High quality figures
- Very big!
- Really good value for your money

Neutral
- With the huge amount of varations, it will be a lot of work if you ever want to complete this set.

Negative
- Huge issues with a lot of the figures in this set not fitting well on their pegs, so later on some alterations have to be made to them.
- Specifically for my set I had someone that did a force cast-off with a figure and damaged the figure in such a way I can't repair it to it's original state.

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
I can point out only a few small flaws in the sculpting, but they are very well done.

Painting 9/10
Painting is almost flawless, with a big amount of shading for them begin trading figures.

Posing 8/10
Even though a lot of the artworks show similar posing, Kotobukiya did very well to let the end products look very different from eachother.

Base 6/10
The bases themselves are very compact and have a nice overall look, but I have to give a lot of points deducted for them having pegs that don't fit well with the figures. A lot of them had pegs on the base that are too big to fit into the holes of the feet of the figures. So you need to alter your own figures to make them fit correctly.

Packaging 8/10
Cute colors and good size, above average looking for trading figure boxes.

Enjoyment 7/10
My enjoyment was a bit spoiled by the secret figure being forcefully cast off by the previous owner, leaving me with one figure of the set that can't be restored to it's original looks. I was also a bit grumpy about multiple of them not fitting well on their bases, which leaves me with some work to do in making alterations to them. But, those two big complaints aside, these figures are cheap, big and definitely high quality! It's like having a mix of a scaled and a trading figure. It really makes me wish that Kotobukiya and Alter would still be making figures of this type! Note: Kotobukiya still makes trading figures, but smaller pieces and prizes.

Conclusion

If you are a Moetan fan this set is really a must-get, good prices, good sizes and high quality! If you in general like some 'older looking' designs or there is a specific outfit type of the set that intrigues you (like the bunny or maid for example), I would also recommend to pick up that figure loose. They are so cheap and easy to get, that you won't regret it!

Availability

The regular color versions of these figures are regularly in stock at well-known second hand places and cost on average 250-500 yen a piece. The normal color variations go for 500-1000 yen a piece on average. The special color variations I don't see for sale much, but will set you back at least 1500 yen for each one of them. If you're okay with the normal color variations, you pay about 3K for the full set of those 6, which is realy a bargain for what you get.

And to finish it!

I decided that for now I will display these figures together with the other older scaled and prize figures from POP I earlier mentioned:

Soon I will take some time to fix their pegs, especially 'scolding Pastel' seems ready to fall down. I hope it won't be needed that I glue them.

For those who read all this way, thank you! My next review will be about Ballerina Style Asuka made by Kotobukiya ITEM #48844 .

victorviper (2 months ago) #56635705These are quite detailed for trading figures, and I wish there would be more larger-scale trading figures like this.

Yeah, it really makes me nostalgic. I guess the market for these bigger/more expensive trading figures wasn't really there? They probably got replaced by prize figures getting more easily available and cheaper in the last ~10 years.

About this blog

 
Welcome to my figure-blog!

I mostly write reviews for this blog, since I like to read and write those kind of articles the most! I also think of them as very useful for other collectors and Japan enthusiasts!

Next to that, I also write tutorials for GK's, loot blogs, cosplay and convention-related articles and guides for hobby-related subjects...just take a look!

I hope you enjoy my articles and feel free to rate and leave comments! :)
