kommenttia Figure Review: Cirno POP Version (Griffon Enterprises)

  • Weboshidori2 kuukautta sitten#80284975Coincidentally, one of the reasons why I held back on getting this was that I too thought that the figure doesn't look true to POP's more familiar character design; exactly as you said, I ultimately bought it more for Touhou than for POP.

    What some POP figures suffer from is imo not nailing the eye style and in some scenarios the figure overall should have been in a more pastel color scheme. It doesn't make certain figures bad, but to grab some other examples: If I were to ever buy any of these ITEM #54025 ITEM #52723 ITEM #52725 ITEM #54026 ITEM #54122 ITEM #54123 , they wouldn't even fit with the figures from my POP displays!

    I used to shortly be into Touhou, used to have multiple of the Nendoroids and some smaller goods. Back then this would have been a neat addition, but nowadays and looking at how my displays are set-up...hrm, I guess I will only buy this Cirno or the others from this set if I have some good fitting space for them once my collection is fully set up again (I recently went through a move and my new displays are going to be very different from before).

    I have a similar issue with ITEM #5704 and ITEM #5703 , which are from another one of my favorite artists: ENTRY #8348 . The figures by themselves are cool, but they just don't scream Akio Watanabe to me.

    Maakie2 kuukautta sitten#80283950Thank you for this review! This figure has been on my wishlist for a long time as I'm a huge fan of POP. However, even though the figure is super cute, it does not 100% feel 'POP' to me so that's why I have been doubting a lot about getting her or not, and in the end don't own her.
    You seem to have bought it as a Touhou fan so you judge this figure in a completely different way than me, haha. Overall, I think she is still very cute. I love how her wings and the ribbon on her head look. The baggy socks are also 100% POP-y cute. :)

    Cute figure! Perhaps I should try to get her too. I got ITEM #79116 when I was in Japan 8 years ago.

    Weboshidori2 kuukautta sitten#79996341I'm thinking about not buying any more figures for a while after the box came to me like this; it was too close a call. I was hoping to get Chen next, but I'll wait a while longer.
    Anyways, I greatly enjoyed reading your article about making Aya's spell card; any future articles of yours I'll look forward to.


    When you do eventually get around to buying Chen, I can definitely recommend her, a really nice little figure with quite a unique pose too. It is terrible when something gets damaged in the post though. I once got a figure shipped in no more than a few layers of tissue paper! That was horrible...

    Thanks for the compliments by the way. I will certainly be posting some more articles soon, just waiting until I get a hold of my first camera so I can have some higher quality pictures to go with them. I'll be reading any other articles you post in the future as well.

    EsmeAllan2 kuukautta sitten#79995593Nice review. I wasn't planning on getting this figure but after having a look at your photos I'm certainly tempted, although I think I'll probably end up sticking to just buying the normal 1/8 scale of her from Griffon Enterprises for now.
    She looks real cute and it's a shame about the box, especially considering that it seems you spent a lot of money on her.
    Reading this really makes me want to get back into reviewing more of my touhou figures from Griffon.
