The haul of Rapril, my thoughts on a particular duo, and packin up

The haul of Rapril, my thoughts on a particular duo, and packin up
14 May 2011 04:40:47

Recently, I received my package from amiami containing all the preorders for April. Personally, I was looking forward to this one as it included two SHFs I really wanted, and a figma of Hitagi.


Dead Master: Oh... a parcel...I hope its Black Gold Saw, she can help me beat Bla-



SaGoZo: I'M FREE!!
Dead Master: *runs and screams*


Dead Master: *walks back slowly to the box* So, uhh new guy are you a bad guy sent over to help me defeat BlackRockSho-


SaGoZo: Watch out, there is a floating skull ghost thing behind you! *punches Dead Master's floating skull*
Skull #1: WHY MEEEEEEEEE
Dead Master:...

Well I opened up Figma Hitagi and SHF New Den-O and noticed these two had some interesting qualities which past figures from their respective figure lines did not use often or never before...

That sexy New Den-O finger snap, Hitagi's sharp tools and bits drawn out.


I'll start off with Figma Hitagi Senjogahara first; this figma uses a lot of soft plastic. The shoulders and the skirt is all made of that soft, rubbery plastic. It is nice to see Max Factory adding that in, it really allows her to make poses, and have a more natural look. Makes me wonder why Max Factory did not produce more figmas with soft plastic dresses/skirts

Hitagi: You are already dead.

Another neat thing about Hitagi which displays her uniqueness among the other "schoolgirl" figmas is her alternative hair and accessories.



A close up of said tools and bits.





Hitagi: Araragi-kun~


The 2nd noteworthy item I received is SHF New Den-O. Unlike any of the other plastic ankled SHFs, his ankles are the new "experimental" ankles that Bandai used for the first time. Also New Den-O uses a completely new mold/body, and even his eyes use a holographed sticker underneath the plastic (I know the holograph thing sounds bad, but it actually looks good).
Yes these plastic are just that good and stable.


Oh I should say SHF New Den-O comes with wonderful accessories, also his Macheddy's mouth opens and closes! Yes the sword has a face on it, and that face's mouth can open and close.




Lastly, I wanted to ask, how do you folks feel about moving? I've been admitted into a new university and going to move. Well moving in about a month or so now; personally I feel positive about moving. I really don't want to call a place "home" just yet especially when I have not traveled as much as I liked to. Anyways thanks for reading my post.

Congratulations on your loot! I haven't watched Bakemonogatari or OOO, but dat Den-O!

"Macheddy's mouth opens and closes!"
Why did I cancel this figure?
Is that yuki I see?

Also most Figmas actually have soft plastic skirts, You just don't seem to have any! XD

Strange I guess every figma I own has hard plastic skirts then, except Hitagi of course. Hmm Miku, Luka, Dead Master, Aya Kagura...Yeah every I own figma that has a skirt uses hard plastics.

I feel like Bandai really went for the extra mile on New Den-O, as for OOOs SHFs...SHF TaToBa and GataKiriBa should be avoided due to balance problems. And it seems from RaToraTah and afterwards OOOs-related SHFs seem to be getting better, strangely SaGoZo is unusually stable and his head is not loose like the earlier OOOs SHFs.

Oh I'll take more pictures of Yuuki for sure, but out of all the normal release figuarts released so far this year. I would suggest SHF New Den-o, for the sake of new Den-O, it's on par with the older SHFs in terms of quality and accessory count (Macheddy, the rail pass, a clip to attach the macheddy on his back, dengasher, urarod, and kinaxe). My only criticism on SHF New Den-O is the lack of a "holding a the pass" hand.
