Review: Anna Mochizuki 1/8 Scale by Kotobukiya

Posted on January 19, 2017 by CC


My latest scale came in September, Anna Mochizuki from The Idolm@ster: Million Live! My last foray into the idol figure genre as I have said no to any more idol's on one leg! I have three already! They all seem to be on one leg too so this will definitely be my last one. Probably. Maybe.

Ordering and Payment

Anna was a somewhat impulse pre-order as I really don't know much about Idolm@ster, at all. I do have two other scales from the series and a giant Ranko. Her pose was cute though and I liked the color scheme and her boots were adorable. Probably why I ended up getting it, boots. Most of my scales have great boots.

Shipment


Anna was on her own order so she came just her in the box! Shipping was somewhat expensive at ¥ 2720 for EMS. EMS prices have made me move to combining GSC orders for most of what I buy, but since she is from Kotobukiya that wasn't an option this time.

Design




Anna has no extra parts! I could have gotten another faceplate if I had preordered her through Kotobukiya but her face is cute enough.

Buying Anna Mochizuki

Anna was released on September 28, 2016. She is currently in stock on AmiAmi and at a cheaper price new than I paid for her! She may also be available in AmiAmi and Mandarake's pre-owned section once some people sell her to them.

AmiAmi This AmiAmi link will have any pre-owned items if they are available. ¥7200 ¥2700 ¥9900
Anna on myfigurecollection.net Different users have her for sale here, as well as other sites that have her available. Varies Varies Varies

One thing I want to mention, on her MFC page it says only 11 people on the site have her. Eleven! What is up with that?! Is she like the worst Idolm@ster character or something? I thought she was really cute! Maybe she was too expensive for what she ended up being?
