Chrono Crusade - Azmaria Hendric - 1/6 (ZONE) ITEM #897282

I bought this Garage Kit late 2019 BLOG #46119 and her previous owner had comissioned someone to paint her. As I received this figure shortly before moving, I had to box her up and this will be my first time having her on display!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598019.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598020.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598021.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598023.jpeg

The sculpt and especially her face are a bit odd, but beggars can't be choosers when it comes to Chrono Crusade items. Especially Azmaria, who has no prepainted figures at all.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598024.jpeg

Her stare/face in general is a bit intense, I mostly blame the sculpt of the mouth.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598025.jpeg

The colors used to paint this kit are spot on!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598026.jpeg

I like the shading on her knees, I'm not really sure what is going on with the posing of her right foot, though.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598027.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598028.jpeg

I like the gradient in the hair. Overall I'm happy to own this figure. With the rarity of Azmaria kits, I'm expecting her to be the only Azmaria in the collection.

Isekai Quartet - Tanya Degurechaff - Acrylic Figure - Acrylic Mini Figure (Hikari Terrace) ITEM #915208

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598029.jpeg

I received this acrylic stand as part of the Secret Santa 2019 BLOG #46119 . I had been interested in acrylic stands for a while, but this is the first one I owned and opened.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598031.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598030.jpeg

Some stands come with a backside print or some kind of marking on the back, but this one doesn't.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598032.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598033.jpeg

She's small and cute!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598034.jpeg

When you get really close the print doesn't look completely crisp, but I think it's good enough considering the size (10CM) and price (700 yen).

Nurse Witch Komugi charms set

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598035.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598036.jpeg

I got these gifted by a friend 6+ years ago, she got them from a Japanese auction website. I never managed to find these listed in a store anywhere and only recently someone added them in the database as drafts. They were a bundled item with one of the DVD releases.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598037.jpeg

There are 5 charms in total.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598040.jpeg

Sweatdrop/sighing Komugi ITEM #1059597 . She looks very good for her size.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598042.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598043.jpeg

No pantyshot for you!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598044.jpeg

Mugi Mugi Mugimaru ITEM #1059600 !

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598045.jpeg

Do you already hear the ohohohohohoho~? Impressive details for the size as well! Item is Kokubunji Koyori ITEM #1059599 .

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598046.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598047.jpeg

Also no pantyshots here, but very cute garters!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598048.jpeg

Posokichi ITEM #1059601 is the least good looking one from the bunch. It seems like the right eye is trying to escape from the face.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598049.jpeg

Hyper Witch Mugi Mugi Deluxe ITEM #1059598 has the most paint flaws, but on the other hand, the amount of details is also incredibly high! Not bad for a 16 year old item.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598050.jpeg

I would still love to get a Garage Kit or prepainted figure of this outfit!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598051.jpeg

Cute paws!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598038.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598039.jpeg

And here is the full item assembled! I doubt I will display it like this though, as they lay on top of each other when hanged up and might get paint transfers this way.

Nurse Witch Komugi-chan Magikarte - Nakahara Komugi - SR Rondo Robe Collection (secret fig.) (Yujin) ITEM #13709

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598052.jpeg]

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598053.jpeg

I bought this trading figure from an eBay seller 6+ years ago, I don't remember the details of the purchase anymore, only that I kept her sealed until I had some more proper time and space to set up a Komugi display.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598055.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598056.jpeg

Aaaah! She is so cute fully assembled!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598058.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598059.jpeg

All the small details are there and there is even some shading!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598060.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598061.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598062.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598063.jpeg

Shimapan!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598064.jpeg

You can even see some sculpt from her stomach!

Strike Witches 2 - Miyafuji Yoshika - Lucky Kuji - Sega Lucky Kuji Strike Witches 2 (SEGA) ITEM #91201

After looking at the matching Lynette ITEM #99565 a few blogs back BLOG #47080 , here is Yoshika! This is also the first time I am unboxing this figure.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598065.jpeg

Yoshika also comes in a huge box!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598066.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598067.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598068.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598069.jpeg

A bit of a simple figure, but as an older prize, as expected and looking pretty good!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598070.jpeg

I really like the base!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598071.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598072.jpeg

Very cute sukumizu!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598073.jpeg

Yoshika's lower body is a bit more bronzed than her upper body.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598074.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598075.jpeg

There is a bit of dust/dirt on her face and arm, it is stuck under the coating.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598076.jpeg

There are common prize figure painting flaws that will vary with each copy of the figure.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598077.jpeg

It's a bit hard to accept the quality of her right hand, though...ugh. I think I will try to fix this up myself later. Also, her hand looks pretty dirty as well.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598078.jpeg

Her left hand looks a lot better! Pretty nice sculpt for a prize figure.

And to finish it!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598079.jpeg

The matching Yoshika and Lynette together. I wish the colors of their bases were a bit more similar so it would look like they are standing on the same beach!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/03/2598082.jpeg

As I decided I'm going to display my Strike Witches by character, beach Yoshika has found her spot with my other unpacked-so-far Yoshika's!

victorviper2 days ago#90042125I usually scan AmiAmi's preowned section over breakfast, and about once a week, I'll do a quick look at Mandarake for obscure items on my wish list, but so far no luck.
I wonder if people are less willing to part with Griffon figures now that they are out of business, meaning that there won't be any re-releases.


Not very long ago I managed to get this big loot of Komugi Griffon GK's BLOG #45784 , but I might have been just lucky that someone that had collected them all, also sold them all to the store I bought them from. I am currently not actively hunting Griffon items, although recently I managed to buy a prototype (!!!) of ITEM #79116 as there was a seller on Yahoo! Auctions that had a lot of Griffon bankruptcy items. But that might be again another lucky moment. I didn't see any Komugi items with that seller, though. I actually checked that seller again and they still have quite some more unique prototype/work in progress pieces from Griffon, like page.auctions.y... if you're interested. :)

Oh wow! So still no luck in finding Komugi for a good price? Or she is not showing up at all?

victorviper9 days ago#89681679Even if the sculpt is a little off, I like the Azmaria GK. It's too bad there are no proper scale figures of her.
The Komugi charms are so cute, and I had to laugh a little bit when you said you can almost imagine Koyori saying "ohohohohoho". It reminds me I've never unboxed my ITEM #5890. I've been hoping to stumble across one of the corresponding Griffon Komugis one of these days...
I never understood why Sega had to make the bases so huge on those figures of Yoshika and Lynette. I would get the Yoshika to go along with my Lynette, but the figure box is so big, and since the only currently available shipping options charge by volume, it would probably cost 4 times the current price of the figure for shipping...


Just basing on the prototype pictures, it would seem that ITEM #22725 is your best Azmaria choice. However, I never even saw that one for sale even once.

Oh wow! So still no luck in finding Komugi for a good price? Or she is not showing up at all? I remember we talked a while back about a lot of Komugi items suddenly getting an aftermarket price increase, more recently I found out that I think we can 'blame' (for lack of a better word ;) ) the 'animecore' movement, which has given a boost to a lot of early 2000's anime their popularity. Luckily I was recently able to get ITEM #136447 for 1500 yen while for a while I only saw her for 4-6K. I wonder if Komugi item prices will now go down again if that popularity boost was only temporary?

I also have no clue, my only guess is because they are lottery items, this way the items seem more valuable/more important? As they were the main prizes for the lottery. And yeah you are probably better off to wait until shipping situations go back a bit more to normal before picking up Yoshika. Luckily she seems pretty easily available.

Nefere9 days ago#89679575Nice to see all Komugi charms together! They're so detailed for tiny figures.
I like shading of pink parts on Azmaria's clothes. A sparkle blue paint on a gem below a neck is looks nice hidden by a hand.


Yeah! I was surprised at how much details there are, especially Hyper Witch!

Azmaria was definitely better painted than what I can do myself on my GK's, a level of quality I want to achieve one day! :)

uwucio9 days ago#89643811I haven't seen most of these before, so this was a very interesting read! Old figures have a certain charme imo, they look so cute and nostalgic.

Although I also collect newer stuff, I will always have some shelves with designs from the early 2000's (the time I started seriously watching anime). Makes me very nostalgic! :) And I'll be covering more of these kinds of items in other upcoming blogs! ^^
