MaakieMaakie1 month ago
Hello MFC! And welcome to another blog in my collection series! These blogs cover figures from my collection that have been in storage for a long time due to my emigration. I also use this as an opportunity to practice with my new camera and also appreciate the items I have been owning for a longer time!

The figures we are going to look at today:

- Moetan - Pastel Ink - 1/7 (Griffon Enterprises) ITEM #3835
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters - Marik Ishtar - ARTFX J - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #166660
- Pocket Monsters - Pikachu - Red - ARTFX J - Pokémon Figure Series - 1/8 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #331724
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters - Atem - ARTFX J - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #450031
- Queen's Blade - Ymir - Excellent Model - 1/8 - 2P Color Ver. (MegaHouse) ITEM #2355

Moetan - Pastel Ink - 1/7 (Griffon Enterprises) ITEM #3835

My most favorite Ink figure and she is also huge! Definitely more 1/6 than a 1/7. Griffon is known for not always having the greatest quality, but they really knocked it out of the park for this 2008 release. An earlier review I made of this figure you can find here: BLOG #43318 .

That classic 'oversized disc with nameplate' is really a blast from the past.

She has lovely colors and amazing thighs.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672817.jpeg

My copy got multiple scratches/small damages especially in her face, I think this might be because of older cleaning methods I had being a lot more rough and I also had her out in the open before getting my first display cabinet in 2010.

If there is one thing I could change about this figure it would be her mouth as that looks the most aged.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672818.jpeg

This is an incredible tease and I love how this is one of the more mature looking Ink figures (remember, she's a college student)!

She has a very nice silhouette also for some more artsy camera angles.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters - Marik Ishtar - ARTFX J - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #166660

Probably one of my heaviest anime crushes as a teen was Malik. I was so happy when this figure got announced that there would be a shirtless display body showing his back! I also made a full review of this figure when I originally got him BLOG #17970 so you can see all the display options.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672822.jpeg

His face (and upper body, ahem) are amazing.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672821.jpeg

I love that Kotobukiya went through the effort of actually sculpting his back instead of slapping a decal on it View spoilerHide spoileras it's scarification, not a tattoo.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672820.jpeg

In general this figure is just great for Malik lovers, YGO fans and handsome man appreciators!

Pocket Monsters - Pikachu - Red - ARTFX J - Pokémon Figure Series - 1/8 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #331724

Just like many other people I was very excited when Kotobukiya announced to make figures of the Pokémon trainers, starting with Red!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672823.jpeg

I love the shading and especially how dynamic they managed to make him for the simple pose he is in.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672824.jpeg

Pikachu is a separate loose figure and can be placed anywhere you want.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672826.jpeg

Pikachu is of very nice quality, I had discussions before with people on here that if Kotobukiya would be releasing the Pokémon separately from the trainers, they would definitely sell well.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672825.jpeg

Some color editing fun.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672827.jpeg

Although kind of simple in execution, I still recommend this figure to fellow Red and early Pokémon games fans!

________________________________________________________________________________

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters - Atem - ARTFX J - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #450031

Another great Yu-Gi-Oh! figure and the best in quality of Kotobukiya's YGO line is Atem. I also earlier reviewed him when I received my pre-order BLOG #39944 .

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672828.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672829.jpeg

I always loved all the gold and jewellery on this design!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672830.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672831.jpeg

A very determined look!

Queen's Blade - Ymir - Excellent Model - 1/8 - 2P Color Ver. (MegaHouse) ITEM #2355

A lovely figure to end this blog with is this 2008 Ymir release. I made a review of her not very long ago BLOG #45247 .

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672833.jpeg

She looks very good for her age (almost 13 year old figure), although the design is a bit simplistic by nowadays' standards.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672834.jpeg

Her eye decals are lovely.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672835.jpeg

The outfit is great as well!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672836.jpeg

The shoes are something I have always loved in the design!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/28/2672837.jpeg

The pearl shine on the skirt at the back is also a detail I love to point out.

Although a great figure, if you also like a more punk rock goth look, I would rather recommend this Ymir figure ITEM #18544 for your collection!

Tjilp1 month ago#94851474Those YGO figures are so prettyyyy it's very tempting to just get more xD
I also wasn't aware of that shirtless Marik version ahhh he gorgeous :U that tattoo and his skin look really good! I like the shading so much, too.
The gold on Atem also looks great, I agree!
Love these blogs!


Hehe, why are you not collecting them all then? :^) If you manage to get them on pre-order or shortly after release, Koto is one of the few manufacturers with still decent prices nowadays.

It's btw not a special version or anything, the Malik release comes with 2 upper bodies. but why display him with a shirt when you can have this

Thank you! :D More of these blog types are still coming up!
