    evenstar883 months ago#77157503Oh, that's because I got mine from China. As Myethos is a Chinese company, the preorder batch of the local (Chinese) versions all come with bonus items.
    Japanese stores like AmiAmi or Hobby Search do not commonly receive stock with those bonus items.

    jenniyah3 months ago#77157462How were you able to get the business card and wall scroll.
    The copy I got from hobby search only had the small post card.

    Eccmy5 months ago#74461571Thank you for your information, I deeply appreciate it! ^_^
    I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford it for the time being (my January and February are pretty full, I have ITEM #868412 , ITEM #925173 and ITEM #777234 to pay at the end of this month, and I have ITEM #676036 , ITEM #806135 , and, even if I have enough points to cover its main price, the shipping and customs fees for ITEM #740277 as well) + birthday presents for several relatives on February, so... But I'll try to get her once the opportunity will present itself!

    No worries at all :) Those are a lot of wonderful stuff to add, and hope you eventually get the Mermaid too.

    evenstar885 months ago#74330231Hi, I have received the company's reply. Good news :) the dagger is removable but on its own, it is a single piece and cannot be disassembled further.

    Eccmy5 months ago#74147782Just a question though: is the dagger removable?

    evenstar885 months ago#74257949I believe the imagery behind the art is based off the real mermaid fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen (I was a sucker for fairytales as a kid). It is much sorrowful than the Disney's Little Mermaid. I was going to write about it in the review but I thought the review was already lengthy enough XD  Long story short, the mermaid gives up her tail to become human to be with the prince. But in the end, the prince falls for another woman. Her mermaid sisters trade in their hair to the sea-witch for a dagger. If the mermaid kills the prince with the dagger before sunrise and uses the blood to wash her legs, she will regain her tail. In the end, the mermaid cannot bring herself to do it and jumps into the sea, turning into seafoam (essentially killing herself). In the end though she rises to the heavens because of her sacrifice.
    I think this beautiful figure really incorporated elements from the original Mermaid fairytale.


    I like the older fairytales, even the Grimm stories and its always interesting to see the difference between the modern fairytale and the original fairytales...

    T.T that's a really deep and sorrowful story. Thanks for telling the background for the mermaid story. It totally incorporates the Anderson's story elements into this figure!

    Cloudberry5 months ago#74257674When I was getting into figure collection, this figure popped up into my radar and I was simply blown away by it; everything from the unique base, the sculpting of the water, how the water distorts the image if viewed from behind, the little details of the fishes, her accessories, and how "bluer can blue be" is just amazing.
    I was initially confused about the theme of it since I have zero knowledge about mermaid folklore, but I thought this figure tells a sorrowful story about how a mermaid wishes to be free from the grips of sadness and despair and her only savior is the crimson dagger... yet she feels conflicted about leaving this world in such a manner... well, that's the impression this figure gave me (⌣_⌣”)
    Thank you the review! I completely forgot about this figure >.<
