    JetJockey (1 month ago) #64618840I wish Rockin Jelly Bean would continue making figures. They made a line of Bettie Page posters with various themes that would make good figures. The space Bettie is probably my favorite.

    Preach it. I have their Devil's Cheerleader and Vampirella and they're easily two of my favorite figures. Got a fantastic style that really stands out. I was really looking forward to this one (ITEM #236993), but she ended up cancelled, so yay.

    I'm going to try and read the manga for this Chiyo character. I read a bit about her some months ago. But I really like her colors. The smile not so much right now.


    The Manga is okay. It's really slow paced and each chapter is very similar to the last with not a lot of actual story progression. It's cute though and I love the art for Chiyo. The tone of the fan service is good (if that makes any sense). It's not too heavy handed and over the top with that stuff even though it's like nearly every page.

    I like this Chiyo's base (ITEM #675824) with the bubbles which I believe is exclusive. If they could mix that base and the bunny version's outfit, plus some facial fixes. That would be the Chiyo figure I would get.

    Is there an image search function here or some way to upload images to forum posts? I saved a few a while ago but didn't note the names. I'll try some reverse images searches I guess.

    Image search, not that I know, but you can post images either upload them here on MFC and use the direct link or upload to an external site like imgbb.com.

    Neither appear to be in the MFC database.

    First is a GK of ENTRY #93644 by @Necobazu, exhibited & sold by ENTRY #24800. Twitter thread about it.

    The second is ENTRY #120324. It is a gk by ENTRY #67537, and here is one of their tweets featuring it - twitter.com/ina...

    As tharglet said, both are garage kits. In moeyo articles, when "ディーラーブース" ("dealer booth") appears in the article title, generally everything being shown is garage kits.

    Koto's new bihoujo Poison Ivy ITEM #808445 is up for order. I noticed how compared to the art they covered up her cleavage. It kind of looks like an addition as there's an extra row of leaves on the bust that if removed it seems like it would look like the art. Why make such a change; it's not like she was showing anything more than many of these figures?

    Ouuu a bit pricey for a bishoujo, but it's probably cause of the bases. Nonetheless, ordered. It looks more like they pushed up the leaves, if it was a Marvel character I would understand the change, cause of Disney and all. But Ivy is DC, whatever the reason may be, she still looks lovely.

    I agree she looks great and the outfit looks fine too; I just noticed that comparing the art, in part I think because the sculpt is so close otherwise.

    Price surprised me a bit too, but it is likely the elaborate sculpt as you say. The G.I.Joe and MLP bishoujos have been more expensive, but Mary/Shazam is priced more like they used to be so I have suspected the Hasbro licensing was just more expensive. Of course, the MLP girls have the secondary pony figures with them too.

    I've noticed this, and I think most bishoujos, is slightly less expensive on Hobby Search compared to Amiami.

    I agree on the Hasbro, must be asking for more on the licensing deal. The MLP line is great though not only in design, but also the amount of space that both the figure and box take up, lol. Everything looks so big in user and promotional pictures, but once you get them in person its like, wow, compact.

    I do all my shopping on Hobby Search, so I don't realize the price difference. I should make an Amiami account though, cause they sometimes get GSC and Megahouse exclusives only for sale.

    I hadn't seen this Miku ITEM #806187 until now that she is painted but what a cutie.

    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/pics/figure/large/806187.jpg

    She is quite simple, but that smile is just so cute. She is also in the expensive side, I admit the colors are amazing but is kinda hard to justify.

    Yeah she's cute but the price is a bit much. It's Max Factory and 1/7 so that's why I'm sure. I like her better than the GSC and Aquamarine versions of this.

    Edit: She's an exclusive so while Amiami has her there is no discount; she's available there and the GSC shop, 16,500 yen. The 15K quoted here is without the tax.
