Finally, few hours ago I recived my first Digimon "scale size" Figure, along side 2 others Sailor Moon figures!
I was thinking makeing a "small" review, I will talk mostly about the Digimon figure, and is of course Mimi & Lilimon G.E.M. series by MegaHouse, and boy, let me tell you, I never was so dissapointed with a figure more then this Mimi & Lilimon, maybe only 1 time when I orderd my first Garage Kid figure Sailor Saturn, but let's not talk about it!
So after a lot of time wating for her realise, and the price, she was a little over 100$ with the shipping cost, she... does not live up to the expectation at all! Damn!
Don't get my worng, she looks nice, bouth of them, they look cute, the detalis are there, but:
She is so damn small! for the tag price 100$??
To much! My pack of cigarettes are bigger then the actual Mimi figure or Lilimon figure!
The Sunflower was the hardest thing to bild for my, beside the Attack on Titan gear figures, that was almost imposible, but is besides the point , so I was so afried that I will barck those leafs, 100% sure, and after 20 minutes carefull tring to put the 3 parts sunflower in her hands I finally succsed, but not without paint trasnfer on her gloves from the green parts of the sunflower!
She feels cheep! I know she is not a Good Smile company figure or Altar etc, and that's one of the down side for me, cause my fav animes DBZ, Sailor Moon, Digimon etc are Toei/Bandai/Megahouse producs, and they are not knows for high quality Anime Series/Merchendise/Products but when u price tag a figure so small +-100$ you should give at least a very high detailed figure with a reach feel to it, not hallow.
The paint is alright, nothing fancy, with some flows here and there, small gaps, paint transfer here and there, and the mold is kinda unclear, for 100$ figure.
The onthers 2 figures are gorgeus, Sailor Jupiter for half the price that I spend on Mimi & Lilimon is actually good, yes she has some flowes, but she was at a normal price range, so is tottaly fine.
Princess Chibiusa & Helios, is just jar dropping! Even I hate the character so much, that I did not buyied anything with her, but when I saw this gorgeus figure, I know that I need it on my shalf! And mostly to complet the line Sailor Moon Crystal Figuarts!
I succsed to make some very gorgeus pictures with Chibiusa & Helios, kinda a dream secvence, and she was actually a little cheeper then Mimi & Lilimon, but she live up to the expectation and price.
So the conclusion is, that Mimi & Lilimon figure is 80% a dissapointing figure for me, and mostly cause of the time I waited for her and priced I payed for her and I don't know if a mentioned, but everything about mimi and lilimon is very very veryyy fragile. Maybe I should've buy my second fav character in digimon Yamato & Garurumon, but I saw some review of him and has some big cheep problems feel to it as well, mostly beeing halow and the quality is not on point, so I guess my 2 fav charcters was not so good for the company to take care more of them then Angewomon or Angemon figures witch I saw and hear only good things about them, aside that Angewomon figure was baned in america cause you know that stupid censurship think going on with the Digimon frenchise.
Here are some pictures I take, only the Chibiusa & Helios are gorgeus, and I took some pics of Mimi & Lilimon side by side with a pack of cigarettes and Sailor Jupiter to see the scale diferance.
