Figma Miyafuji

Figma Miyafuji
29 Jan 2011 00:29:14

Today I received the last of my December orders. Figma Miyafuji and movie Haruhi.



I have nothing intersecting to say about Haruhi She is what She is. But I must admit that I really like how Miyafuji came out as a Figma She is much cuter than I was expecting in person, but there is a huge problem with her...

Paint rubs everywhere!


I had herd about this a bit so I did a little research first and found a tip of lining the inside of her striker units with electrical tape this seems to have worked. But I have no idea what to do about the gun so far the marks on her arms are fairly unnoticeable but just look at that hand! I'm afraid to use the gun at the moment.


But it doesn’t end there while taking the above photo I noticed that the blue on the edge of her shirt rubbed off a bit on her legs (and Thankfully none of the Bertie's weathering came off on her butt) Interestingly the blue of her swimsuit also rubs off on the inside of her shirt. (not that you see it or anything)

All this is sort of crazy I have no idea what to think about this figure I just hope upcoming Strike Witch Figmas don’t have this problem as well. If anyone has any ideas on how to stop the pant rubs from the gun please share them.

I really have no idea what went wrong with Yoshika, whether it was the plastic or the paint, but something evidently went kaput down at the factory. Incidents like this and the Black*Rock Shooter waists have made me a lot more reluctant to preorder GSC/MF items, but at the same time, many of them sell out quickly. So at this point, I'm struggling within as to whether or not to preorder Figma Verde/Taiga and risk a QC catastrophe, or wait and risk missing out on them...

And what happened with BRS waists? I haven't heard.

I remember seeing a picture showing multiple BRS with broken waists. It showed that the waist joint was made with the easily breakable clear plastic. I haven't had any problems with mine but be careful just to be safe.

It didn't help that the paper on the waists was particularly hard to remove, leading many people to attempt to remove it by popping off the lower body (like what works with many Figmas).

It's strange you know how Figmas usually have a matte finish to them on Miyafuji it seems more so then normal particularly on the striker units. Strangely the gun doesn't seem any different from a typical Figmas accessory.

It makes me wonder if they were trying to experiment with different types of plastic. I just hope they get the message and don't use this plastic on future Figmas - I mean, it's bad enough with Yoshika, and she doesn't even have a lot of paint apps - imagine what it would be like with, say, a Nanoha or Kamen Rider Figma.

Gosh, looks horrible. Such a cute figurine and such a failure.
I'm just glad you don't seem to be very upset about it...

It's strange I really like this figure but I'm also a bit frustrated so at the moment my like and dislike are about equal.
