Uploaded photos and here are my thoughts on this figure.

Long version:

Well,where to start? It definitely was packed nicely, but the material is SO goddamn brittle. Two tips of her hair broke in box, but it isn't that noticeable (Going to paint over the broken ends). She weighs as much as an empty soda bottle and can be easily knocked over like one, no exaggeration. Like others have said, the base absolutely does not hold her in place and she is top heavy. I ended up using a glue gun to secure her to it.

About the paint job, the only thing that looks like it has paint is her hair and it is sega-prize-figure-tier quality. The face paint are probably printed decals applied with heat with a touch of gloss on the lips and painted to show separation.

They sanded some parts of the figure and left other parts untouched. The markings from the sand paper are very apparent, probably explains the dusty feeling all over the figure. That probably also means they didn't spend extra money to use flat clear coating on her either; doesn't look like it.

Most of the 3D lines aren't noticeable from like 3 feet, but others can stand out no matter how far you are standing. Like the back of one of her arms; the 3D lines are terrible.

The painting on her boobs aren't that bad and they didn't maul them with sand paper. However, johnny donuts at the factory put a large scratch on one of them. I believe it to be human error because other photos either had none or are placed differently. Like, those boobs are the hallmark of this figure and should be 11 out of 10 perfect before shipping out. The fact that someone looked at all those scratch marks and gave it the okay tells me they have very LOW quality standards.

Overall the figure is pretty cute, and passable. I like it, but when you factor in price it is like you paid for a 100+ USD prize figure, except the prize figure wouldn't shatter into a million pieces if you dropped it. 3D printing tech could be ready, but the methods lack quality control at different stages. Like, how do you control the sanding process? Painting becomes an issue too since the body was mostly one piece (They solved that by not painting jack shit and having the material the right color). What pisses me off the most is the quality control. The company is ultimately responsible for final QA and some of this shit shouldn't have shipped out in the state they were. Also, 100+ USD and I can't get a touch of Mr.Hobby Top Coat? Insight, you fucking cheap bastards. Everything about this screams to me that they wanted the most money for the least amount of effort and they got my money. Probably the last time too.

Summary: 7/10 It's not bad, Anubis is pretty cute and the sculpt is nice. Just don't look too closely. I absolutely recommend that if you want a figure from them, DO NOT PRE-ORDER. Wait to see how the final product is, get it after market and to never pay full price.

10 out of 10 Design and sculpt.
7 out of 10 paint job.
0 out of 10 material.
0 out of 10 pounds.
10 out of 1000 grit sand paper.

Venetica (1 month ago) #47188307Oh, and I shipped her SAL which is highly underrated. (I've had a 1/2.5 Hatsuho shipped that way with zero damage!)
SAL shipping is indeed underrated. Based on more than 1000 shipments from Japan over the last five years, there is *zero* correlation between SAL shipping and shipping damage. The only differences are lower price, longer shipping time, and insurance options.

trancend (1 month ago) #49136799Arrived undamaged, smells bad out of the box. Overcharged on shipping by Nippon Yasan. 3300 yen shipping label and they charged me 5200 yen.

NY is notorious for overcharging on shipping - I guess they are just including shipping AND (high) HANDLING into the price (unlike most shops / stores that seem to eat the handling costs and just charge the carrier costs).

I've never noticed any smell at all with Insight or FOTS figures - I wonder what it is!

trancend (1 month ago) #48124082Just ordered for $103 shipped. Hope it's arrives undamaged.

The packaging on this one is pretty good - worst is likely a few little tips on the bottoms of her hair in the back (not even noticeable!) Good luck and enjoy!

Most of all though, I have to point out that placing her hair through her fingers was the most terrifying thing I have ever done with a figure. I am still in disbelief that nothing snapped in half. I had to space out my attempts because my fucking hands were sweating.


Haha, I know exactly what you mean. At one point I was thinking "well I guess I have to leave her hair off her fingers, I cannot bend it that much!".
