    Wow, I had never thought of displaying her with the spear in one hand AND the food item in the other!

    My favorite from the set, but I display her with both hands griiping the spear. She looks even more dynamic like that.

    Good to know! I was thinking of making a comment on how Madoka Magica personally means a lot to me, but maybe someday when I have the time. 。^‿^。

    WindsorSeven (12 days ago) #75619430Ugh, right? I saw a thread recently where the OP was asking for suggestions for popular anime to watch, and one commenter mentioned PMMM. My initial reaction was "Pffft, who hasn't seen that? It's so popular and recent!" and then I googled when it came out...what is life.
    Also yes, taiyaki is great! Try some!

    It was those few anime I grew up with. I feel so old whenever I see the date on my favorite movie/show that is a decade old. I remember that day when I was excitedly coming home from school to watch Wall-E. Can't believe that movie is around 11 or 12 years old!

    I should try someday. To be honest, I used to be grossed out whenever my mom buys those red bean buns. (anpan) But that was when I was little. Now that I am an adult, I am willing to try new things like mochi for an example!

    galablue (12 days ago) #75619711What I love about Madoka Magica is that they aren't just powerful, but they're also vulnerable. We need more complex female characters throughout media -- especially anime where so many girls can just be cardboard cut outs (just like their MC boys they're supposed to be in love with, lol!)
    And yes, I second Windsor ... try taiyaki! Or at least a red bean bun hehe. I actually like red bean buns better.

    Yeah, like that! I am so sorry for my wording. I am not good with words. I wish I can say stuff what I really feel deep in my heart. If only I was so open, haha. The reason my message wasn't so detailed because I wrote it during breaks. So my apologies if there was some mistakes. ^_^' Not only I like the character's strength but I also like relating to the character and cheering them on of course. Other female characters in other media are unfortunately love interests it seems. But nowadays it's not like that anymore.

    Cloudberry (12 days ago) #75623849Ahhh, Kyouko is cute. I'm glad her snaggletooth translated well on her figure (as it's one of my favorite characteristics).
    It might be an "old figure" but Kyouko is still cute. Sometimes, a cute, simple, and non-extravagant figure is all we need and GSC knocked this one out of the ballpark.


    I love the snaggle tooth also! Total moe moment, lol.

    This figure also just proves that you don't need to cost 150+ to be a good figure. Sakura only cost around 70USD when she was released, and you can find her new now for around the same price. Figure prices are skyrocketing, but I wonder if the quality will be as good as these oldies which still hold up to the test of time.

    Elise_Grimwald (12 days ago) #75619288I didn't realize this figure was this old, though. She looks like most newer figures do, honestly, and is just as good (if not better) than the one from last year.

    I think she's definitely worth the pickup. I have to be honest, when I was looking at my box it looks like I have square tape rather than round tape, so I think I ended up getting a used/resealed one (or maybe GSC didn't use round tape back then?). Either way, I recommend getting her new if possible, or at least double checking that her pegs are not broken, as I've personally been having a lot of issues with plastic disc bases recently.

    An oldie but a goodie! I really love this line of scales; so timeless imo.

    LittlePisces (12 days ago) #75580651As someone mentioned before, I can't believe that anime is almost a decade old! Time sure flies by. I've always wanted to try taiyaki. I am assuming they sell them in Asian stores right? Looks like I have a request for my Filipino mom when she goes out Asian food shopping someday. :)

    Thanks for the great review! I've had my eye on this figure for awhile now (I only discovered this one existed last August, but the con that had it had her for way too much money. I've been wanting her for my collection since, though), but haven't bought her yet. I will definitely be picking her up at some point now, though.
