1/4. Bruh thats big.

But is the $228 worth it? Hmmm.

Absolutely not worth it.

>FREEing

Their only good figures are the bunny girls one. That nose is so pointy too. And the pricetag is to high.

Oh... Oh my °°
It is expensive... Even though I know sometimes that's even normal for the figures, I still can't help but laughing when I see Iku trying to steal the attention there X°°D

Nah, wouldn't buy. Something looks off for me plus its expensive. I could get two scale figures for that price.

You could get even more than 2 to be honest. lol.

She's just not worth the price tag, too much. Plus, you got to take shipping in consideration too, cause it will be expensive as she's 1/4.

I never knew figures even came in 1/4 scale. But yes, something about the face looks off to me, though I can't pinpoint what. And is the damaged Iku even more naked than in the game?

I think it's the lack of color the fault of that... I hope so at least... °°

I'd totally get the damaged one... if it was 1/8 or 1/6 and half the price tag.

I love Imuya, but there are limits to my love...

I can see the torn swimsuit over her boobs, but I can't seem to find the lines distinguishing it below those parts

SapphireFlame
08-08-2014, 05:22 AM
PrimalBidoof So she's either:

a) Naked from the boobs down
b) Hole in the swimsuit smack in the middle of her body. (I think I see a kind of line slightly above where her belly button should be, at the risk of looking like a complete hentai staring at a half-naked girl)

There are creases on her stomach I guess thats where the lines would go, it looks completely flat though

Are you referring to the AGP Yamato (around 12k yen)?

That's expensive shit. You must be a really BIG Imuya fan.

Oh theres the lines, they were the little wrinkles I saw in the other pic. I can lay this thought to rest now :D
Now that gap between the swimsuit and her shoulder really bothers me lol

1/4? Wow then those girls must be pretty small at full size.

Depends on what you call small.

Source says figure is 25cm big, substract~4cm from the float, that makes 21cm from head to bottom, times 4 gives 84cm. Assuming a (from head to bottom)/(total height) ratio of 0.55, that's ~153cm.
Average height of a japanese 17 year old girl is 158cm. Should fall in the normal range, though I guess she would be short compared to european or US average heights.

Ok ! Pre order ok for april 2015, no more figure at this month. (i have to limit myself at 1 figures per month now... it is safer.

I saw the preorder for 1/4 I-168 on HLJ. Then I saw the scale and realized that's huge. Anime figures do come in that size but they're very rare, usually falling around the 1/8 or 1/10 scale. Then I looked at the price tag. That's a big no-no for me. MAYBE if I was a huge fan of that character and if my wallet doesn't like holding money (which it does), then I'd go for it. But since I have neither of those 2 conditions, I'll pass.

If they did a good 1/4 of one of the more popular girls... that'd be scary. Imagine, 1/4 Yamato or Musashi, or any of the other Battleship girls. Or maybe Akagi with complimentary food items and buckets.

I think you're thinking of the Yamato figma (http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN989688/Act). If that's the one you want, you gotta do some good hunting for it since it's sold out in lots of places. And some will try to gouge you for it. I've found it here (http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=BAN15909&mode=retail) for a "reasonable" price. This figure is pretty damn expensive but there's a lot of crap with her to go along.

Absolutely not worth it.

>FREEing


Normally I would agree about FREEing figures, but I think they did a good job with this one. The face is "slightly" off but not by much and not enough for me to avoid this figure. Out of their entire range of figures, this one ranks at the top.


Shih Wasn't that one. The one where she was standing up. Announced and released a few months back.

Yes, there is a few but they are GK, there is also the Bandai version but that's more of a action toy then a figure since the joints can move.

You can find them on MyAnimeFigure.
