My Hero Academia Hawks Ichiban Kuji Figure ReviewMy Hero Academia Hawks Ichiban Kuji Figure ReviewReview

Todoroki is my favorite character from BNHA, but Hawks is a definitely up there as well so man am I glad he finally got a figure!

I received him recently and his both his figure and his box are absolutely huge for a prize figure! I've only owned a few prize figures and usually their boxes are much smaller than this box!

The figure itself is fairly heavy because of how large it is and they bubble wrapped his wings and shoes in the packaging.

The base is just a plain and simple clear base. I do feel hawks has a high center of gravity and can easily tip over if you accidentally touch him. I would def put it somewhere where you won't bump into it.
The base is easy to slide into and does it's job. I do wish the base were a bit heavier to account for how top heavy the figure is though.

The quality of the prize figure is much better than I thought it would be. I like the leather like texture on his clothes!

The goggles are a thicker than I'd like, but I still think this is amazing quality for a prize figure. The only thing I dislike is the white trimmed fur on the jacket that isn't painted fully. It looks like they only dabbed on the white paint and didn't get into the crevices of the fur. It still looks ok from further away though and should be a fairly easy fix if I ever decide to fix it up myself.
The hair and face still looks very much like hawks even though there isn't any shading in the hair.

Here is my hawks figure next to some of my other figures for scale!
prize figure of All might and Todoroki pop up figure (non scale) ITEM #943138
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/08/2654751.jpeg
Kotobukiya's ARTFX J 1/8 Izuku ITEM #728444 and Bell Fine's 1/8 Todoroki ITEM #898569
Hawks seems to be a bit bigger than Koto's izuku but seems like he should be bigger compared to Todoroki here.

Overall, I enjoy his figure alot 10/10 rating as he is a prize figure.
I hope he gets nendo one day too! I requested for him in GSC's survey already. ^_^
The aftermarket for this prize figure has been sitting around 200+ since I've checked and it's crazy how expensive he is now! I feel very lucky to have gotten him for about 60usd.

randomcgull6 months ago#94206699I sure hope koto makes him since I have other bnha scales from them already. I would prefer them to display figures that are in scale with one another.
here's to hoping we'll get his nendo soon


I really hope koto make one of him to, if they will make more.
But Hawks nendoroid is probably not to far away.

randomcgull6 months ago#94190537I'm not sure if he'll get a scale or not, so I decided to get this one for sure!
I admit the other ones didn't catch my eye.
ITEM #1087606
The wings on this one look kind of small in proportion and usually the stand for these type of poses tend to be quite awkward (like support rod goes in the butt area) so i passed on this. I feel like the quality may be similar to this one maybe.
ITEM #967241
I saw this one too and didn't like the pose and the face feels off to me as well.
He truly is huge for a prize figure though! A very nice surprise to me. =]


I acctually quite like his other 3 figures, but i can see why it would fall into others taste.
( but i also plan on getting every figure that he gets)
he will probably get a scale in the Kotobukiya line, but he won't get it anytime soon i think.
A Hawks nendoroid is probably a closer possibility tho.

Wow! Amazing how big and detailed he is for a prize figure! The kirishima prize was also the same way! Even the same height as my Midoriya Grandista!

I feel like prize figures these days are really one-uping their game!

Senbei6 months ago#94190364Wow! He looks really good! Hawks is my favourite character and I've been passing on the prize figures while waiting for a scale. But he's huge! I almost thought the 1/8 Midoriya and Todorokis were prize figures in comparison hahahaha
I'm not sure if he'll get a scale or not, so I decided to get this one for sure!
