This week was one of much exams and sickness. Yep I had the flu this week. Fortunately none of my figures seem to have caught it and as such they look as great as ever! ^-^
Unfortunately Customs caught my most expensive package ever. I had to pay €38,- euros extra to get my precious Light Yagami and Dead Master.
Well, first a loot picture of this week!
Now onto reviewing!.........
Before going onto the pictures I would like to remind you that I don''t have a professional camera, The colors on the pictures might vary from the actual product. Because I had to make sure the details were vieable by you, I used a flash, but this varied the colors a bit.
Here are some pictures from different angles;
You can't see the detailing on these pictures well, so I'll just ramble a bit about the sculpturing and show you the stunning details later! XD
He is very well sculpted, The scythe's curves are very well detailed and shaded, The blade is shiny and ready to cut. Another stunning sculpt is his tie, it flows according to the non-existing wind and is greatly detailed and shaded too.
However on this picture you can also see one of his greatest assets, namely the scythe. The curves are great as is the shading. It looks rusty and shiny without looking bootleg. The cloth that goes around the scythe is great too, it looks ragged and torn, but it a good way.
All in all it is a great figure so here are the scores;
Sculpting; 9/10, There are some minor flaws, but nothing that can be seen from the distance you would normally place them at. The rest of the figure is greatly detailed thus it somewhat makes up for these minor flaws.
Painting; 8.5/10, they did a good job at shading and coloring the figure, but I wasn't entirely happy with the color of his tie and the shading they did on that part.
Posing; 9.5/10, His pose is excellent. He looks as if he is moving, but he's actually standing still and on top of that the pose fits his character.
Stand; 8/10, nothing special actually, but the fact I was able to rotate him and not his stand, it awesome, because I get to place him at an angle I like, but still being able to read the silver plate on his stand.
Enjoyment; 9.5/10, Appart from the minor flaws he is great, nothing to worry about. He looks stunning and is great to look at.
For those of you who worried about him breaking his neck before arriving at your door, whom I was one of ! XD. Fear no more. I will show you why!
Here are some pictures of the box. As you can see there is no window, so you can't see if he is broken untill you open it.
Well this is the end of my post of this week. I hope I worked away some doubts about buying the Yagami Light figure. I hope to see you all next week! Have a nice weekend!
