figma Kanzaki Ranko

figma Kanzaki Ranko
17 Jul 2014 15:24:23

My lovely lolita has finally arrived. I have never bought a figure of a character I don't know before but she was just too cute. This was also my first time buying from AmiAmi and I have to say I'm very satisfied.

The box was marked as "Fragile" which was very nice. It means that they really care.
The figure box was nicely placed in the box surrounded by cardboard dividers.

(Figure Box) The figure box was in perfect condition (except that it was slightly scratched but that's just because of the terrible choice of paper used for the figma boxes).

(Figure in plastic) As most figma, Ranko doesn't come with a lot of accessories. She makes up for that with her presence though. She oozes of adorableness!

(360°)
(Details) Ranko is very nicely sculpted with tons of details on her dress. Her fringe is made from softer more elastic plastic than normal. Her twin tails also have slightly movable joints in them which was a nice surprise as I was not expecting that. Her sleeves are also made from softer plastic to help slightly with mobility.
Her dress is made of harder and more stiff plastic which in turn doesn't give her much mobility in her hip area and just a little in her waist area. She's still new but her limbs are all unusually stiff. She can hardly tilt her head to the side. However, I'm hoping that that'll get fixed with time.
I didn't experience any problems with the paint job. Max Factory did a lovely job with the details.

(Accessories) Ranko comes with 5 extra sets of hands (closed, to hold things, to hold the parasol and a resting hand, to hold the book and a very open hand, to hold the sketchbook and a pointing hand), two extra faceplates (excited face, bashful pouty face), a book and a sketchbook and a parasol/umbrella.
I'm kind of concerned that the parasol holding hand might break because you really need to stretch it and bend to get it on the holster. It's also very hard to stick the book to the book holding hand, I kind of wish that hey were stuck together.
Otherwise the accessories are really well done and detailed, my favorite being the parasol. The faceplates are also very filled with emotion, which is nice.

(Height Comparison) Here's a little height comparison. Ranko is sculpted to be very petit and cute but she looks like a kid next to the huge tower that is Hatsune Miku 2.0.


I'm very happy with my lovely Ranko, despite some of her flaws.
I'm so happy to have her as a part of my collection!

Nice review :)

Ranko is really sweet, I'm no big figma fan but I'd like to get her one day, even though her range of poses and movements is kinda limited due to her design :)

Thanks!

Yes, she is. I don't really mind that much either. I realize that she's made more or less to be visually appealing rather than to be extremely posable.

Yes, it definitely can! You just need to have a the hand that holds it (or any other holding hand) and attach it to the figma.
Thank you!

Thanks for the review, Your pictures (and reviews) are always really great!

I just got mine as well, unfortunately mine came with two (closed) right hands! The only thing I don't like about AmiAmi is that they don't like replacing broken figures.

Can't you contact GSC and ask them if it's they can send you a leftie?
Oh, that's good to know. Thanks for the info.

I just heard back from AmiAmi. They are going to contact Good Smile/ Max Factory for a replacement hand, so thats good.

Also the only other thing you should watch out for with amiami is that they don't like it when you cancel things. I've herd that some people have had their account banned because of this, but I haven't had any problems with canceling items.

That's great, I'll cross my fingers for you!

Yeah, I've heard about that a lot. That shouldn't be a problem for me though as I'm not an impulse buyer when it comes to figures. I always think a lot about my purchase before even considering ordering. But thanks for the warning.

Amiami delivers! I just received my replacement hand today. Strangely they used a box around the size of the one you got you're figure in the ship the tiny hand.

That's great! Everything went well in the end
But yeah, that's strange. Maybe they just don't have smaller boxes?
