kommenttia One Year Later: How is POP UP PARADE faring?

  • I didn't really want any of their figures until they showed off one of Kotoko from In/Spectre, now I'm seriously thinking about an order

    I haven't been super impressed with the sculpts so far, but I think I'll change my mind if they make characters I care about

    KalasRaven1 kuukautta sitten#79795264This is a PUP ITEM #945919 so this line is a win in every way. I can't wait to preorder it!! I love that they're taking on interesting and unexpected licenses. I know that PUP is cheaper and small, but it's a really nice alternative.
    This is what I'm talking about! :D

    It's nice to see this new line by a reliable brand who can now cover more shows and game characters because they're cheaper. It's always nice to get extra variety with characters that might be too much to put on scales.

    I love the Pop Up Parade figures. Great price for a decent size and quality. I got ITEM #740152 first, then I got ITEM #740207 and ITEM #871638 (still trying to get Vanilla, as I missed the chance, and my usual places are out of stock). I also have ITEM #943137 on preorder, and based on the quality of the first three, I'm looking forward to her too.

    But, it probably won't replace my normal figure set. The lower price just allows me to fit in an extra figure (that I probably wouldn't normally get) in the mix occasionally.

    Asphroxia1 kuukautta sitten#79794243I'm very happy the line exists to allow people a more gentle entry into this hobby. However, it is just not for me. The scale is already a big nono as it prevents me from putting them with anything else I own.

    I have the same comment that I quoted. I didn't answer your poll because the chances of me owning one is quite slim.

    If anyone is going to ever get to make a Violet Evergarden figure I feel like it'll be PUP. They have a pretty decent range from what I've seen.

    Ochaco is going to be my first PUP figure, I'm excited for her since she looks cute ITEM #943137

    I think at first people had a weird expectation about how detailed they would (looking through comments on ITEM #740152) but now that we have a few released and a standard of their quality they will have their fans and continue to do decently.

    Depending on how Ochaco turns out (or if they do more characters I like) I may buy more in the future.

    As someone who bought one (ITEM #740198),

    Pros:
    Interesting characters, they can take chances
    A variety of franchises
    Price is low so people can stay collecting
    Cool box design

    Cons:
    Pretty small
    Quality is not that great, I think my Taito ITEM #676314 prize figure has better quality (but you get what you pay for)
    I can only see the price going up, as it has already increased since the first one came out

    I probably would not buy another PUP figure but would continue to buy other brands of prize figures. She is a lot smaller than my prize figure and the quality, ESPECIALLY the hair sculpt, is not fantastic. Also although the paint job is pretty OK, the tone of her skin is very pale and has very little variation. I just feel like the quality of the one I got was not great and I foresee the price raising in the future.
