Review - Momohime 1/8 by Alter

Posted on March 23, 2017 by CC


Oh man Momohime (and a giant salamander friend) is here! The original one was THE FIGURE that started me on this slippery figure collecting slope. I love her colors and everything about the figure! AND! Her re-release is just as well made and nice looking! I'm so glad I got her!

Ordering and Payment

I preordered Momohime from Amiami knowing she would probably get delayed forever. She did but it was WORTH IT! It turned out well because my Japanese Giant Salamander ended up coming in the same box.

AmiAmi ¥10250 ¥4020 for the whole order (also a Giant Japanese Salamander!) ¥14270

Shipment



AmiAmi kind of went super overboard here, I wasn't expecting such a large box! I thought maybe that the Giant Japanese Salamander was larger than I remember it being but nope, lots of empty space and heavy packing! Everything came in pristine shape though.

Box



Momohime's box has a nice see through front where you can clearly see her face. There is even a hole in the blister packaging too see it better. The rest of the box has clear windows matching her comb's shape. A pretty box!

Be careful when opening this box! I ripped the bottom really easily while opening her D:



She was packaged securely in the blister packaging. The instructions were helpful too as I was afraid to force her sword into her hand (had to end up doing it anyway).

Base


I really like her base! It is well painted,dynamic, and a small surface area! I had some issues getting her foot on her base at first but I just had to hold her at the right angle and she went securely onto the pin.

Parts


She comes with an extra left sleeve to change her sword positioning, as well as an extra right hand. I didn't realize she had changeable poses so that was exciting. I am extremely impressed with the sword that it fits into the scabbard! Everything is really well done on her.

There is one visible seam on her left sleeve where her left arm part is connected, otherwise I can't see any others. I understand why the seam is there for the changing of positions but it is a bit noticeable.



Buying Momohime

Momohime was released on March 9, 2017. She is currently available on AmiAmi new for ¥ 10250. My shipment was a bit delayed because of Salamander bro.
