Great Figures, Amazing Service, Fantastic Price!

So I love Megumin just as much as the next guy, but what is up with them never getting her face right? In my opinion, no figure has been able to capture her smirk look without making her look like a squat little tomato or just...well, not herself. Either her face is too wide, her eyes are too weird, or her nose is not in the right spot. Or, she's in a swimsuit or is a bunny. I was so hype for ITEM #851339 but when I saw her face, I just couldn't smash that preorder button. I had small hopes for ITEM #945888 as she is much much cheaper, but still, I just feel like something is off (and I don't think the quality of PUP is necessarily that great in the first place).

I know this is just personal opinion, and you might have a figure of her that you think is the perfect figure, but to me, just nothing has worked thus far.

Well, it got me thinking ... what characters do you love that you just feel don't translate to PVC? Or rather, they just never can capture them in a way that satisfies you? Share figures if you feel like it!

I'm very happy that this article was made because I can express my frustration with Levi figures. Yes, Levi Ackerman figures. They literally just throw on his hairstyle and angry eyes and call it Levi!!! WTH THEY DONT KNOW HOW TO GET HIS HANDSOMENESS

Look at this.

ITEM #236218 The body and clothes are really, really nice with the omnidirectional mobility gear and blades, but his face??? That's not even Levi heichou pls T_T

ITEM #198265 The design is great but his face could be much much better

ITEM #213351 This design is also great but his face can be improved

ITEM #183924 Cool figure but his face weird af

ITEM #166921 I only want his figma because I want to recreate the scene of him beating up Eren lmao. But, I feel like they could have improved his face more??? Idk it's not that bad but like it could be better

The nice ones which kinda capture his face are ITEM #190720, ITEM #166978, and ITEM #919608.

They can get Eren right always but not Levi like whyyyy

Stereoman1 month ago#81234008I totally agree with you on Megumin but I still like this figure of her quite a lot: ITEM #740485
It’s not exactly perfect but as a figure, it’s nice.


I actually think this figure has a really cute face and more of a dream like quality, but I don't prefer figures that have a metal support rod holding things up ... but yeah, they do a very nice job on her face in this one, and I thought it was one of the closer. It's nice to see a beautiful look rather than just a mischievous exploding one lol.

As for other characters, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a decent C.C figure. They’re all very fan service oriented which doesn’t really align with what she’s like... I have a rubbish prize figure of her because that’s the best I can find.

I also have this problem with Steph from No Game No Life, except I don’t even have a rubbish prize figure of her. I would’ve loved the Phat figure of her if it looked less lewd. Although, I admit that this doesn’t mean that the figure is wrong. It’s just not according to my taste. Because the fan service works in this case unlike with C.C.

Otherwise I’m mostly happy with this hobby!

bisexual1 month ago#81208794oh god for all the figures of haruhi suzumiya there just really arent any out there that draw me in?? shes my favorite of the series but i feel like all of the scales have problems with the pose, face, or outfit. especially the face, i swear 80% of the scales all have the same ">:D" face and i hate it. plus the nendoroids are really dated and ugly and i'm not a fan of figmas in general. the only figure at all that i REALLY like is ITEM #39701 and yeah thats a garage kit.

Couldn't agree more! There's so many scales out there but nearly all them them have that kinda creepy over the top smile like she wants to murder you haha. I wanted one with her school uniform or the ponytail from the disappareance movie.
In the end I gave up and settled on this which has the most accurate face imo: ITEM #4442

Back when i was way into Persona 4 (2012-13) I was really happy that companies were pumping out figures for the franchise, but I was pretty much continually disappointed at how few figures managed to really capture the character designer's style. My favorite character was the protagonist (ENTRY #2501), but for some reason almost none of his figures looked good. I remember being excited at new announcements of Souji figures, only to be immediately disappointed when painted prototype pictures came out. There was basically only one figure of him that got his face right, and it was the one that was supervised by Soejima himself ITEM #91360.

So far I haven't noticed as much of a problem in Persona 5 figures (thankfully), but even the ones I like don't really resemble the original art style.

Yes, I know everyone is tired of Fate / Saber, but I'm still waiting to collect a proper, matching set of Saber, Rin, and Sakura

My favorites are still Alter's FA4 ITEM #2108 and ITEM #2110 , but unfortunately they're tiny (and no Sakura). Hope that something like this gets released when / after Heaven's Feel wraps up in August

Archer never seems to look quite right in most figures, my prime examples being ITEM #344 and ITEM #427563

they're just ?? they honestly don't cut it for me, no offence to anyone who does like them, the only scale which I feel does Archer justice is ITEM #236266 everything about this one just fits better, his expressions look more natural and he doesn't look like he's been carved out of pure steroids.

ITEM #132290 is a noteworthy derp

I feel like a lot of Super Sonico figures just,,, look bad because of the face?? Their meh-ish hair sculpt/coloring doesn't make it any better tbh... I know she's not everyone's fav waifu, but she deserves better ;; <3
