Hatsune Miku - 1/7 - Sakura Fairy ver. (Spiritale, Wing)Hatsune Miku - 1/7 - Sakura Fairy ver. (Spiritale, Wing)Review

Bringing the hobby to your door.

Hello everyone!
Today I will be reviewing ITEM #1085476

Spiritale is a pretty new company. This is their second product being released (the first one was ITEM #1038206).

Because of that, I didn't pre-order her. I wasn't going to get her at all! But while checking some photos of the final product, my husband saw her and he was like: "she is cute! Buy her now! gogo!".
And here she is! I liked the result (she is not the best tho) and I want to share with you.

You can check all the photos here: users.v4.php?mo...
or click in each one for full size.

- BOX -

Following what looks like a new trend of boxes... it's a clear plastic box. I personally don't like it. They are way more fragile than cardboard boxes. And for those collectors that enjoy boxes being in perfect conditions, this kind of box really doesn't help.

It has the illustration she is based on. I like her face in the illustration but I also like how they translated into 3D. Her face looks cuter but a bit more childlike.

You can probably use the box as a case, but that is not my thing.

-BASE -

She is sitting in a sakura tree branch. And she is not attached to the base. The only support point is the peg in one foot. I feel like she is very stable this way. I thought it would need magnets on the ~butt~, but it really doesn't need it.
And you can notice a lot of seam lines along the branches.

Sadly, I noticed a lot of painting mistakes. Starting with the hair.

Look how rough some parts are. And the sakura decals in the hair was badly put. You can even see the space under them, like when you put stickers very wrong. This is a huge mistake, I would say.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/01/21/2980584.pnghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/01/21/2980585.png

But overall it's very nice. I didn't notice paint bleed to others areas. There is no much mistery in the shading. The ambience pretty much does the job.

The cherries on her hair look more like apples to me LOL.

Another issue with my copy was this painting flaw on her breast.

It comes with 2 hair pegs.
Here you can see the influence of them in the figure.

- SIZE COMPARISON -

With Kirika ITEM #331577
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/01/21/2980605.png


With Miku Harvest Moon ITEM #604409
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/01/21/2980606.png

I didn't have a 1/7 at the moment to make a comparison. Sorry about that!

- FINAL THOUGHTS-

This is the first Sakura Miku proper scale so if you are a fan of her design, she will be a great addition to your collection. But this being a exclusive figure and not that easy to come by, her final price was around $230 to me. It's pricey IMO.
Having in mind all that I listed, my only problem was with the hair decals that can be a deal break for some. Which I can't say it's a general problem or bad luck with my piece. I hope Spiritale continues to improve their quality.
Even so, I don't regret one bit! She is lovely and I really love sakura theme <3

I hope you have enjoyed the review! See you next time!

Poppypraise3 months ago#106099682How would you say the quality is compared to ITEM #947675 & ITEM #1125002? I didn't order this figure so I can't really judge well for myself, but from what I saw in your photos the quality of the hair kinda looks akin to a prize's with how rough the hair is in some spots. Even the sakura decals look neater on the hair of ITEM #1125002.Are you sure you have seen photos of the actual final product of them? Because Taito's promotional photos are dreammy.

I own ITEM #1036612 and ITEM #886807 but not the pearl version you linked, but I don't think the final quality of them are so different from the normal version I own.

Very well... I don't have words to describe how much I hate ITEM #886807. Her bangs are way too short making her face look goofy. Her hair is fragile. The color IRL is off (the stocking is fluorescent pink). It is a $15 prize figure after all. On the other hand, ITEM #1036612 is cute, one of my favorite prizes figure. But again, awful hair gradient, paint bleeding, scratchs, her hair is very heavy and that makes the twintails not stay in place (I have to tight them from time to time). And that is ok for a prize figure. Oh, and the flowers in the hair are not decals, but painted.

Spiritale's Sakura has a scale figure quality. I would compare it with Kotobukiya maybe. In fact, I think Spiritale is better than Furyu's F:Nex line when they started.
Maybe I was too harsh in my close-up photos LOL (because it was a crop of close-up, so very enlarged.)
I would take a photos of these three together if I wasn't so lazy XD

bellechan3 months ago#105923966snip Thank you! I will look around on AliExpress and Taobao.Redcat213 months ago#105920059Nin-nin game has her for retail price ($221.54). I checked shipping and it quoted me $19.09 for surface mail to Texas, they had other shipping options as well that would be faster. Thank you for checking for me, unfortunately I’m avoiding Nin-nin right now due to the info about them on the forums here. They do always have great prices but it seems they’re behind on shipping and lacking in customer support right now. Her retail price was $173 USD (without shipping) and I have yet to find her under $200USD.

soratsukii3 months ago#105907293ooh~ very interesting! personally, i like clear boxes because i can just take the blister out and display the figure inside the box (since i dont have anywhere to display safely away from dust)
the figure looks pretty good, although a little simple for a scale lol. but pretty nonetheless

Thanks for reading! ^^
Ironically, I don't have anywhere to put these clear boxes as cases lol

aineedyuu4 months ago#105907133Thank you so much for your review! I normally only collect reg. Miku figures and I wasn't sure of Spiritale's quality so I didn't preorder this one. I've been really regretting it! I think she came out really cute and would be the definitive Sakura Miku for my collection. She's already hard to find close to retail...!
I was a bit disappointed with the branch seams (although they aren't so bothersome when fully put together) but I was surprised to see the misaligned decals. The few other reviews didn't show that, so that's a bit disappointing. I still love her expression and pose. It'll be interesting to see if her hair causes sagging/leaning over the next few years.
If you don't mind me asking where were you able to find her? I've been hunting on YJA! and Amiami but keep missing the lower prices close to her retail, and of course shipping to the US adds a lot to her listed prices already.


Thanks a lot for reading!! ^^
Even so I like how she turned out, I wouldn't trust them just yet to make pre-order.
I think since you have to use proxy to order her, she will be hard to find in retail price. All places I've seen she was close to $200 + shipping.
Japan is not shipping to my country yet. So mine ended up being $230 with no hassle and fast shipping was a good deal. And since you asked I got her in Aliexpress.

FakePsychotropic4 months ago#105899251Thanks for this review, I've found quite a lot of the Sakura Miku figures released so far, even though most were prizes, to be lackluster nonetheless, and was excited for a proper scale release. I think this figure is missing a bit of polish but even so, I think it got quite a lot right. Unfortunately I just don't feel a pull for it now that I've seen user pictures. I didn't know it was an exclusive either, that's kind of strange. You'd think because this module is so popular right now they'd want to make bank off of releasing it normally
Thanks for reading!!
I think you said the right word: "polish". That is exactly what should be improved!
As far as I know all Spiritale's figures opened to pre-orders are exclusives. Maybe they don't want to mass product that much in the beginning.

Thank you! Yes, I love her even with the flaws.
I'm also looking forward to this Miku ^^~ her design is way more complex than this Sakura, let's see how Spiritale will do.
