Hi MFC,

A new preorder arrival has renewed my motivation to complete a review for all my scale figures. I currently have 24 scale figures, and this will be my 11th scale scale figure review, hopefully I manage to stick with it. Today I'm looking at the recently released Rimuru from That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime by Phat Company. ITEM #740285

This was the first figure I ever preordered to get delayed, and boy did it get delayed. What was originally supposed to release in June 2020 was delayed four times and didn't release until Jan. 2021, man delays can be brutal.

A quick 360 in the spoiler

There's a few Rimuru figures out there but this was my favourite looking one. I was pretty quick to preorder when I saw this one and very happy I did.

Close up on the face, he's got a nice expression and I think it turned out well. Nothing too special but looks solid.

Slime Rimuru looks really nice. He's heavier than I expected, and he's got a glossy finish that really makes him look like a squishy slime monster. The gold rod that props him up is a little distracting and I probably would have made it at least a little shorter but I still love how it turned out.

The flame effect of this figure was one of the things that really drew me to preorder it. I'm very pleased with the base, the flames look great as though he's landing through fire and I like the pattern on the circular base.

His right hand has two options which can be swapped out. One is empty and the other holding the sword (and the corresponding hilt of the sword can be removed from the sheath). I think it looks much better with the sword in hand. The fire effect here also looks nice.

The mask askew on his head is something that I'm really glad they included and it turned out well.

In terms of quality control I did find this dark spot on the bit of hair sticking out on the back of his head. Thankfully you can't see it since it's on the back.

He's a little on the small side for a 1/7 scale at 200mm, but that makes sense since he seems to be a fairly short character.

A few size comparisons:
Alongside a 1/7 ITEM #806092

And a 1/8 ITEM #78589
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/19/2611809.jpeg

Overall, I'm very happy with this figure. I have a few Rimuru prize figures but this one blows them away. I'm very happy to have a nice Rimuru figure in my collection.

BONUS: An edit I did

dtindcarea3 months ago#90398140It looks like a nice figure. One thing that confuses me about the figure is the slime form. How can he be two things at once?
It's actually canon that Rimuru can create body doubles of himself. In the OVA, he admits that while he's in human form, he likes to create a body double of his slime form so that he can hug himself.
