Kira!~ ♥

In advance, I'm sorry for the terrible lighting. These pictures are taken in my bedroom which has one red wall and one orange wall, so the lighting is always rather redish. I tried fixing it but it didn't go so well.

A new friend moved in today.

Nendoroid GUMI has joined my family (of three... lol).
When I first saw the prototype I just knew I had to get her, no matter what! :'D
It thought she would've been a bit bigger though, Nendoroids always look bigger in pictures...

The box looks bright and happy, and the colors match her perfectly!

She comes with two stands, a few different types of hands, 4 faceplates, removable goggles, a flying carrot and a special waist to attach to the carrot. My favorite face has got to be the empty eyed faceplate, but my favorite pose is of course the 'kira' pose (I don't really need to point out the reference, do I?).

360° Spin (Almost...)
Splitting (chibi) image of her character!

A few details
The details are wonderful, and the gradient in her hair makes it look fresh and ...almost alive ô x ô


Now for the review

Pros: Great choice of color saturation, wide selection of accessories for different poses, lovely sculpting and amazing details, good painting, wonderful hair, captures her personality well, fun to pose.

Cons: A bit hard to put together, bangs can get in the way when posing, edges of goggles aren't flat enough so they can easily scratch the matte hair if you're not careful, can't stand on her own, carrot is very heavy with GUMI on it so the stand has trouble holding it up (figma stand can't handle it well either).

Conclusion: She's very pretty and well made. Posing can get frustrating since bangs are in the way, but that's just a minor flaw. Carrot isn't really useful since it's too heavy. GSC really should've reconsidered that and made a stronger stand for the carrot only before release.

I'm extremely happy with my little family!
When I get around better with posing GUMI (the stand is giving me a headache) I'll be sure to have a photoshoot. I can't wait for the flowers to start blooming since she's perfect for that!

I actually agree. The lighting in Mikatans photos is often great, but somehow it didn't compliment GUMI.
She's of great quality, so yeah.. you should be ;)
I already have! Just have to fix em up ^^
