コメント Nagae Iku 1/8 (Griffon)

  • Thanks for that guys, and after this for a second I losing faith in my longer type of reviews, thinking that no one bothered reading them for less popular characters/figures released a while back.

    piratepapillon8年前#1157180Great review! I can't wait to read your review of Iku version 2 when you get her. Iku is not one of my favourites (I prefer the shooters over the fighting games) so it will be quite awhile before I pick her up but when I do these will help me choose which one.

    Good to know the pressure is on for me to perform but on my Iku avatar Icon I swear I'll do it.

    Merleawe8年前#1157228I prefer this Iku's face and hair, but the overall sculpt of the ver.2 iku :3

    I can see where you are coming from the face as this one is "less neutral from that one" However I think the hair on 2 fits better as it has more volume on it (ears are not showing) and will probably have more engraved detail on it than this one which I like.

    I agree, I wish Griffon would make their Touhou characters in more diverse poses and facial expressions...
    (or maybe I don't, then I'd feel like I need to buy a lot more!)


    Don't we all. I feel this is their improvised market strategy: For their first release of each character to have a fairly neutral pose/facial expression. This satisfies people who want to collect them all as they have a version of the character to add to their collection. By having everything neutral there are no standouts and the collection from a far looks better on a whole. This way also Griffon doesn't have to do much thinking and just copy what Zun has done Knowing it will sell fairly well just based on the character.

    If the character is popular they come back and do version 2 or 1/7 scale version with more thought put into posing. The same people who bought the first 1/8 may be willing to buy this one as it is more exciting. However if you want to collect most of the character/favorite not so popular character Griffon kinda forces your hand to buy the 1st release as there is no guarantee of a second.

    From now I am now taking a wait and approach before buying their 1/8 scale line.

    Kizoku-chan8年前#1157540Interesting review. Thanks for sharing!

    The ver. 2 is better and beat this one for the scuplt/idea. This figure is nice locking in some angles but a bit plain... Not that catchy when Iku isn't in your top favorite :P

    As for "mass production flaws": Griffon is doing a great job for its latest figures (my Sakuya is near the flawless/perfection :D) So I believe the ver. 2 will be worst the price (I hope so!)


    Yeah Iku is one of my faves so I had to get her and at the time overlooked her plainness.

    As for Griffon's QC control I hear they tend to vary I must have got a bad one, luckily no figure breaking defects.

    In hindsite now since I adhere to my guidelines for scoring figures, when Iku was run through it she came out pretty badly just due to Griffon base, neutral pose and expression. Do take note I am comparing her to figures from top tier companies.
