    Thank you for this detailed review.
    She is very beautiful especially from a distance.
    The chest part is a major plus point, that draws the perfection.

    As for constructive criticism, I dont have any, but a suggestion would to have light circular rings to identify the issues you mentioned like sloppy paint job etc.

    victorviper (11 days ago) #66830512I have only a passing familiarity with Azur Lane, so some of the issues you raised (like the figure being a little bit off-model, particularly in regard to her breast size) don't bother me too much, and this really quite an eye-catching figure.
    I kind of like the shiny, shiny, and more shiny design, and the shiny blue dress does give her a very elegant feel!
    With her display angle it doesn't bother me all that much either but if you stare right at it they look just so massive and as if there were implants. I don't have a problem with the size perse, even if it's slightly off, but it bothers me how balloony they look. Other than that she is stunning.
    Ever since ITEM #397027 I'm kinda into these shiny figures as well, as long as they're done well. :3

    SebastianLover (11 days ago) #66807102This figure is beautiful and is surprisingly stunning for Kotobukiya. I think they normally do a good job, but they don't normally have that wow factor that an Alter or Megahouse figure has. This is the first Koto figure I've seen that really wows me and makes me look twice. It still has some minor QC issues, but this is a big step up for Koto. Bravo! I just hope they don't raise their prices or make nearly every figure exclusive like Megahouse.She sure is and I sure hope it's a step in the right direction (at least for the limited+exclusive stuff). While I agree about Alter, my last 2 MH figures were way below average and while I do have some slight hopes left for their Ozymandias I won't hold my breath (the chan pictures so far weren't very promising).
    Most if not all figures have some slight QC issues as they're mass-produced, compared to Koto's usual releases these are nothing. This is a really great figure and definitely worth its money imo. As for the prices... well, the Azur Lane figures are already pricier since they're LE and in general I feel even Koto raised the prices for their newest preorders.

    winterstorm (11 days ago) #66806375I actually liked the glossiness of her stockings which makes her seems different and stand out more from other figures that also have black stockings.
    I'm also very impressed by the details of the figure and glad that koto seems to be improving in terms of quality as I also own the previous azur lane figures made by them except akagi(missed her pre-order period and now her after market prices has skyrocketed for some reason)
    Thanks for the detailed review as always .ps. Are you planning to get the centaur figure ITEM #758067 ? Would like to see a review on that too
    You're welcome. :3
    That's ofc a matter of taste and while I agree on the glossiness making her stand out it's only that, the shading in and of itself isn't particularly special.
    I wouldn't go as far as to say they're improving, their Prinz Eugen was the usual fare after all, but I sure hope they do. From what I've seen of the other AL figures they're not better or worse as what Koto's normal releases so far.
    I won't be getting Centaur, she doesn't fit in with the rest of my collection, because her ship parts are more prominent.^^"
