♡Sakura Haruno - The Last Version♡

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/09/2252812.jpeg

Finally my figure arrived & I am ready to present her to all of you! It is my first review, so I am sure there will be some lacking elements, but feel free to add if I missed someting that you would like included in future reviews! (〃^∇^)ノ

As a huge Naruto fan I was over the moon, when they announced another Sakura Figure to go with The Last Hinata. However, given how the gals line is I was happily surprised when she got a pose where she is in a semi-action!

Character: Sakura Haruno From Naruto - The Last Movie.
Company: MegaHouse - gals line
Version: Limited & Exclusive
Figure price: 130$

Let's start off by having a talk about the paint job on this figure. I made sure all my pictures are not edited so you can tell that what you see is what you get. I love how the dress has a sort of metallic looking surface, which is also the kind they seem to have decided to use on the new Ino Figure that is up for pre-order now.

The overall choices of colors are very good and very true to the character herself, however you will notice that she and The Last Hinata have a more mat looking color palette compared to the first Sakura Figure release. So displaying them together could make this one look more dull - so I suggest displaying them together carefully. However, I do think this more mat color scheme makes her look more adult, which is exactly the idea with this version of Sakura. So all in all the coloring doesn't bother me.

Now what does bother me is that if you look closely you can tell there are a few painting flaws at the white stripe of her neck and on the front of her dress. What is most prominent is that there is some obvious lack of care to the hair sculpting. If you look closely at the photos you can see that she has this kind of hole at the strand of her hair. As if they didn't know whether to separate the hair or keep it together. I feel like her hair is a bit disappointing and comes off as sort of chunky when you study it closely for flaws. Also there is some form of paint 'bubble' on the side on mine, which is rather disturbing for me. However, I am also a huge perfectionist when it comes to my figures. Besides that you can see on the third picture at the right that there's some sort of tiny hole at the side of her head. I will allow myself to call Megahouse out on that and say that they are:
being sloppy!

~ I know that some of these painting jobs can be difficult and I believe every figure is allowed a few mistakes as they are painted by hand after all! But with the amount of money you are paying for this figure and every other MegaHouse Naruto Figure I do expect more than what is given. Especially since she is labeled Limited and exclusive. So please do have that in mind when you purchase from them!

If we study the figure in all her glory I will say that she looks rather good in comparison to her first figure release. She has a more adult looking face as I mentioned earlier and what is especially nice about this Sakura figure is that she is in a more action filled pose - making her look like she is about to prepare for one of her famous knockouts or perhaps a winning pose like in the video games! Her pose is dynamic and unique, but I will say she has to stand in the correct angle in order for her face to not become odd. So her posing is quite important when displaying her. I will say that I feel like the first release figure had more life in her eyes than this one, so that's something that will drag her final score down a bit for me. But the posing choice is something that defiantly makes you want her!

Also I appreciate the fact that MegaHouse didn't try to sexualize her too much as they have done with a lot of the other girls. I have a feelings its because she has small boobs, so they dont know how to make a flat-chested girl sexy? ╮(─▽─)╭

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/09/2252845.jpeg

Now to the more boring stuff - The base. Her base is plain and simple and matches the other Naruto gals' bases so there isn't much to say. I personally don't mind these simple and see-through bases as they don't disturb a setup in my glass cabin. As always the Konoha Symbol is shown together with the title of the show with the name of the line.

But I thought it would be a good idea to add a picture of that too in case someone new to collecting wants to buy her for themselves! Then you are also able to see the details of the toenails! Always a nice touch though mine has a slight paint job flaw.

Final Thoughts?(。・ω・。)ノ♡

I want to say that I think this is one of the nicer female characters they have made and it is defiantly one of the better Sakura figures on the market. Sakura is a personal favorite of mine so I didn't hesitate when she came up for pre-order. However I will say that for the price you're paying she doesn't have an exclusive nor Limited feel, which is one of my many issues with MegaHouse. Because they dont really have any competition with Naruto figures I am having a slight feeling that you are being ripped off with their products as their painting standards aren't anywhere near Alter or GoodSmile when it comes down to neither painting or quality. However if you are a big Naruto fan or Sakura fan - then she is a MUST! Overall a good figure with some flaws.

What do you think about Sakura? And what do you think of MegaHouse's recent prices for the Naruto line? Tell me in the comments!(๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و

Thank you for reading my first Review!

Thank you for reading it! I will the the color into consideration and make it a tad darker! I do have some difficulties reading it myself at times! So thank you for pointing it out! :3

on another note I hope you will be happy with your sakura!!! I think she is one of the better figures out there !

knaomi1 år sedan#64110885Great review! I just got my figure a few days ago, but haven't had the chance to open her up yet, so your photos are making me excited to do so!
My only piece of criticism is that the colour of the words makes the review difficult to read, since it's light pink and the default MFC website is white. That's just me though. Other people might not have the same issue.

SakuraUchiha1 år sedan#63390034Screw you too for getting her before me hahaha xD Mine still has to arrive. Over all ,good review and you shared some opinions that I myself gathered after seeing some real pictures of the actual product however I still think that the figure is stunning and even if it has its flaws,it has to be one of Sakura's best and true to the character figure so far. Well.. I feel that Megahouse has been increasing prices because of how good this line is selling and by that I mean,even if Ino is this expensive,she's literally selling like bread in both Japan and westerns so they are getting away with it.In the same time,I feel that MH tends to give bigger prices to characters who are unlikely to get a figure anytime soon again.I mean if you look at Hinata and Sakura,they're prices are between 9-11k while Temari was straight 13k and now Ino 14k. I personally did Megahouse did a good job with Sakura's figure even with its flaws however I admit that considering the price you have to pay,they should at least perfect it. However,I feel that Megahouse realised that their prices are too big which is why they made the gap between releases alot bigger so people could have time to afford them,I mean Hinata is now in July and then the next release is only in November,which gives time to a colector to get money if they truly want her and time to organise,totally the opposite to when swimsuit Sakura,Temari and Hinata came out at such close timings too with huge prices. Dunno,You can guess that I hope that they don't keep these colosal prices as Megahouse is my personal favorite along GSC and Kotobukiya,so I would like to buy other figures from them in the upcoming time and of course if they make more Sakura figures,for me to afford to buy them as I would feel sad to have to skip a figure of my favorite female character.

Thank you for reading my review first of all ( •⌄• ू )✧ But I do believe you are right about the Sakura figure. I think she is one of the best on the market if you are looking for the one that is most true to her character and how she looks. The only other one that could compare is the one from Grandsita, but we both know they are price figures so of course this one will have a better paint job and quality overall. But if you haven't seen that one check her out! She is quite cute! <3

I have to admit I will be skipping the new Ino. I feel like her eyes are without light and her boobs are really weird. So even if I might not get another chance I won't pay the price if I can't love her. I feel like Sakura isn't being targeted as a sexual object because they only equal big boobs for "sexy" which is really off-putting XD but had those two things been fixed I would have gotten Ino and I am still dreaming of getting a Temari, but I couldn't afford her at the time ;__; but I agree it is a good think that they are pushing the dates so we can get a chance to actually afford them.

But... if they get this extra time they need to get better at perfecting their painting jobs! I have a lot of figures from different companies and MH never get in the top 3, which is so upsetting because they make a lot of figures from my fandom. They just really need to pay more attention to details rather than stuffing out figures, but maybe that'll stop as you mentioned once there are more gaps between the figures! I really hope they will give me a wedding girl Sakura or maid of honor with Sasuke's hawk on her hand, aaaaaa !!!

I do low-key feel like they sell like bread because there are no one to fight against. Some because they are pretty, but mostly because there isn't anything else to take XD but I will admit its a 50/50 thing with MH. Loved a lot of them but certainly also felt offended by many XD <3 You feel me?╰(◡‿◡✿╰)

evenstar881 år sedan#63363080Thank you for the review. Your shots using the natural light are fantastic! And I love that you did the comparison between the first MH Sakura and this figure in one photo - because I am still deciding which to get in future.
Ps. Close ups of other aspects of the figure eg her pouch, outfit, headband in the review would be really nice :)
To answer your questions at the end of your review - I actually like Sakura, I don't love her but I prefer her to Hinata. For me, MH Naruto figures are pricier (in comparison to similar MH One Piece figures) and I haven't started collecting any of the former yet. I actually thought the price of the GEM Shikamaru was ridiculous for such a plain design that I completely ruled him off despite him being one of my favourites XD


Thank you for the good constructive criticism! I will try to add some photos of the details later or in the next figure review! I think I accidentally focused on the issues more than the good! <3 But I will make sure that is added in the future and maybe I can add some extra photos in the one! I would say between the two the last version is more true to her character rather than the first. I just personally like the colors on the first better when comparing them, but if you don't display them together then the mat color scheme doesn't bother! She stands with my The Last Hinata! :3

It really was a ridiculous price for something so small and simple. I think the main issue is that no one can go up against them because of licensing :( So they can just charge whatever they want. It is such a shame!! I only buy the ones I really need because the prices are outrages. >__<
