.。*゚+.*.。 Hello MFC! ゚+..。*゚+

Heya! How's everyone? (´▽`)ノ Hopefully you've all been well despite the craziness that's going on (×﹏×) I'm very blessed to still be able to continue with this hobby of collecting figurines, and so I'll be sharing one of my most recent purchase: Kadokawa's Tokisaki Kurumi Alluring Kimono ver! This figure has been a victim to delays, but she's finally here! (*꒦ິ꒳꒦ີ) I love Kurumi and wafuku, so basically all signs were green when pre ordering her haha, on to the review!!

Her box design is pretty default, lots of pinks and reds with traditional patterns such as checkers and sakura prints. There are windows on the front, sides and top of the box which provides a great view of the figurine (even though it is quite wrapped up in protective plastic) (´ ∀ ` )
The material however, is pretty flimsy (;ω;) I'm so glad mine came without any damage. She is quite pricey, so I would have liked if her box was abit sturdier (´ー` )

✧・゚: *✧・゚:*  Blister  *:・゚✧*:・゚✧
Her blister isn't excessive, but she was rattling a lot in the box before I opened her (>_<) That was abit worrying because I didn't see any loose parts and I thought something broke... but she was all fine (◡‿◡ )

Base / Figure

✧・゚: *✧・゚:*  Base  *:・゚✧*:・゚✧
A really simple glossy black base with small floral accents that matches the kimono, the figure was already really flashy so I think a plain base like this is perfect and doesn't make the whole composition too messy (¬‿¬ )b

Tada!! She's stunning! Look at that amazing kimono!! (✯◡✯) Her assembly was pretty fuss free and the pegs fitted well! Let me continue gushing about her details in the closeups!
https://i.ibb.co/K5dx6Vd/20200704-143124.jpg
A closer look at her face! Her left clock eye is faithfully recreated and her bangs frame her face really nicely as well! (˙꒳​˙) Personally I think her expression looks softer and kinder as compared to the prototype, and I don't mind it at all (≧◡≦) ♡
https://i.ibb.co/tbZHBL3/20200704-143604.jpg
Not gonna lie, her hairpiece did disappoint me a bit when I just got her (•́︿•̀) It definitely seemed a lot more 3D, but it looks pretty flat in person. But after staring at for awhile, I was really impressed with the neat paint job and clean sculpt!
https://i.ibb.co/3ms14d5/20200704-143645.jpg
Her hair tips are slightly tinted red! Nice attention to detail there (°◡°♡)
https://i.ibb.co/ZHCrVwm/20200704-143905.jpg https://i.ibb.co/YpRNCMS/20200704-143824.jpg
Her hands are really nicely sculpted! Her dainty fingers look really natural holding onto the rifles! Her finger nails are painted a glossy nude pink colour and looks extremely neat as well (•֊• )
https://i.ibb.co/0BDnZf1/20200704-144035.jpg
How did they make it so detailed and neat? Its amazing Σ(°△°)
https://i.ibb.co/fNFxy2f/20200704-143743.jpg
Her glossy black obi contrasts really well with the matte bright red kimono, the obijime is freaking amazing, no paint transfers, no bleeding, just beautiful (⁀ᗢ⁀)
https://i.ibb.co/wL71ZZk/20200704-144144.jpg https://i.ibb.co/d5NrbsL/20200704-144250.jpg
A closer look at the designs on the kimono, are those lotuses or camellias?(・・;)ゞ I'm not too sure either heheh, nonetheless it is really beautiful and detailed. Also the kimono is bright red, but gets darker as it goes down and has an inner golden layer that peeks through the folds! However some parts of of the golden layers are kinda sticky? But I didn't notice any paint transfers or paint fading ('~`)
https://i.ibb.co/xhz0b79/20200704-144310.jpg
I don't know about you guys, but I was pretty worried about her booty when looking at the prototype (⇀‸↼‶) Because it looked like the kimono was wrapping around it very unnaturally!! I decided to bite the bullet and get it since I won't be seeing her booty much but upon seeing her IRL, her booty looks pretty natural phew! (´・ᴗ・ ` )
https://i.ibb.co/LCKNpJG/20200704-144234.jpg
Alright alright, enough booty talk XD Here is the back of the obi! The knot resembles a flower, which matches the theme of her kimono, and also a playful view of her back |・ω・)
https://i.ibb.co/VVFNBr8/20200704-144521.jpg
Even her zori is so detailed I can't (°ロ°)

Comparisons
https://i.ibb.co/vq9MRy5/20200704-150038.jpg
Alphamax's 1/7 Kurumi vs Kurumi
Pretty much the same scale! The Alphamax Kurumi soooo orangey beside the crimson Kadokawa Kurumi! (´• ω •`)
Also I just noticed that they are holding the guns in different hands? XD

https://i.ibb.co/3cNtvbP/20200704-150241.jpg
Kadokawa's 1/7 Illyasviel vs Kurumi
Here is her scale comparison with the only other Kadokawa figure I have! Illyasviel is quite a bit shorter than Kurumi, so the scale looks pretty accurate as well (¯▿¯)

Overall
https://i.ibb.co/M5c3hVr/20200704-145522.gif
This figure costed me around ¥20k in total but I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it! Especially with the paint job. Everything was extremely neat and detailed, the delays were worth it!
╰(*´︶`*)╯
As a Kurumi fan, I am very glad to have gotten this figure. The only gripe I have with it is the flimsy packaging, but other than that! Its all great!
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it helps in your decision on whether to get her or not! (˘◡˘) Do comment any questions you have and I will try to answer them the best I can! (´▽`)ノ

Skinny_Neko2 kuukautta sitten#79996292Thanks for the review of my favourite lady :) I won't get mine until next month at the earliest because for some reason I preordered her via one of the UK sellers instead of my usual solaris Japan or AmiAmi, but this has got me excited. She looks great. Plenty of detail in the printing on her Kimono and a pretty face. Really glad I ordered her now :)
I was going to order Tohka to go with her but I don't like the goofy face they gave her so I didn't bother. I wish they had done her with a simple smile like they've done with Kurumi or given her two face plates so you could choose


Thank you for reading! ( ´∀`) She's really gorgeous hehe, the more you look the more details you find!
Tohka's version looks really nice too but that pricetag... _:(´ཀ`」 ∠):_

dtindcarea2 kuukautta sitten#79995429Very nice review. Thanks. I'm one of those people who hasn't decided whether to buy it. It looks like the quality is very good so that helps to justify its expensive cost. There is a Tohka kimono version coming out in a few months so if this is any indication, the Tohka version will be solid in quality as well.

Yeahh the price tag was definitely daunting ('~`;) I'm so glad I didn't cancel my preorder haha
So far I've had 2 KDColle figures and their quality has been really good! So I'm sure the Tohka one will turn out pretty awesome as well (*´∀`)♪

Scones2 kuukautta sitten#79994229Well-written and informative review, I love all of the energetic emotions. She's a beaut, and though I'm not familiar with her source, I'm tempted to check it out, just to get Kurumi figures such as this one. The guns, black hair and red/gold kimono feels powerful, but is balanced by her sweet smile. Traditional Japanese clothing while wielding guns makes it seem effortless, and gives a character an air of competence, grace and badassery, haha. By the way, I like the turquoise mat(?) you put the figures on, the gridlines give it a retro technological vibe. Good review as per usual.

Thanks so much for reading! (^ω^ ) The mat is actually a cutting mat to protect my table from scratches hehe
I can't wait to see how the other Kurumi figures turn out as well!!
