Kommentarer REVIEW: Kimetsu no Yaiba Kamado Tanjiro ARTFX J figure

  • StaticBreed1 månad sedan#80325635Mhmmm I'll be honest... but I hope nobody gets offended, I want to be clear before that this is MY personal opinion!
    For me his 'open mouth' expression doesn't happen that way in the anime, his lip paint is just too off for me to accept it (if I had this figure I wouldn't help myself but to redo the lip area, they messed up the red in my eyes.. I mean it looks like lipstick from here).. he is the more the kind of character who clenches his teeth anyway, ITEM #872444 isn't incredible either but I can feel more of the character already here.
    For the optional smiling face, I don't know, I feel like it could of been way better, it doesn't feel warm to me like in the anime when he smiles. But tbh, putting that face on this pose was a very risky move from Kotobukiya, which almost feels rushed to get ahead of the market since they were the first to pop out a Pre-O.
    Alter are my favorite brand, they rarely to never disappoint me so I am expecting big things.
    YES!! Alter Shinobu, YES!! I am sure that one will be without a doubt in my liking.
    Was a pleasure to read, helped me really get a feel for the figure. And although he's not for me, I can see why people do like him too.

    Don't worry, no offence taken on my side at least :)
    Ha, I guessed that it would be the mouth because I was turning the figure around wondering which part would cause dissatisfaction and I realized the most likely would be the mouth or the pose. He has his open-mouthed moments during battles too actually.

    I completely agree about the smiling pose, maybe they should have done a clenched teeth bonus head instead (like a fellow user below mentioned a Breathing face).

    Thanks for replying and reading the review! :)

    evenstar881 månad sedan#80286012Really, why? I think Koto actually did fine with this Tanjiro :) The Aniplex Tanjiro isn't out yet but I feel that he does not have the right face and expression and hair colour from what I have seen in the prototype.
    I myself am looking forward to the Alter Shinobu.
    And thank you for reading :)

    StaticBreed1 månad sedan#80284976Companies like Koto are struggling to inject the characters/art from the show into figures.. my faith lies with Alter and Aniplex for some good Kimetsu no yaiba figures :D!
    Nice article.

    Scones1 månad sedan#80284849He looks so good. Great hair shading and clothing sculpt. His smiling expression is one of a knowing, composed warrior, yet a noble, welcoming one. Kotobukiya might not have the quality of GSC or Alter, but the nevertheless good quality for the price is a gift from the figure gods. His base is unique but, I agree, simple, and since he's in a battle pose and presumably fighting, it would be cool if footprints were on the base to show he's running around everywhere.
    Thanks for the review, informative and enjoyable.

    And thank you for reading, I am glad you enjoyed the review :)

    galablue1 månad sedan#80284039One of the reasons I held off on this figure was because I have had my Koto figures break over time, so I'm really glad to hear that he is attached to his base. I was super disappointed in the plastic pegs on my YuYu boys. His base is still incredibly boring but I'm glad they went with a snow theme and also kept it small so that you don't just have a giant plastic disc. Although the design is boring, this is what keeps the figure affordable. To me, he's good for what you pay for, but I still don't see why they chose that 2nd face as the bonus ... to me it just doesn't fit in with the design of the overall figure at all. I feel like maybe a closed eyes breathing face plate would have been better, or maybe just a different bonus :P
    I agree with you though that Koto's box design is amongst the best out there, they also manage to keep the boxes small for smaller characters, which me and my wallet appreciate.

    Yes, the smiling face still bewilders me too, it does not fit the figure pose. I never thought about a breathing face plate before, but now that you mentioned it I think that's a very good idea!

    And yes, he's definitely worth the price in my opinion - especially when I am only paying 8k yen total for him. I actually sometimes think collectors over-expect too much from companies like Kotobukiya despite the relatively cheaper price they are paying (a Megahouse Tanjiro would no doubt be close to double of this price). Maybe some collectors are too used to the great quality of the top-tier companies, but the bulk of my collection is formed by Megahouse One Piece figures and I still think this is a great Tanjiro figure. Guess it's really down to personal taste :)

    Thunderr1 månad sedan#80283606Even though I've mentioned before that this Tanjirou wasn't as good based on the pictures of other users, now that I read your review of it this one is definitely one of the best Tanjirou around that I have seen so far on here. Unfortunately, I had to cancel mine because they didn't seem to be of the best quality. The box that you used behind Tanjirou looks amazing and fits the theme well and the figure. Other than that, this was a nice review to read and I expect one of the Nezuko when you have time to do that. I'm also still awaiting for the other Kimetsu figures of Kotobukiya to have a prototype soon as these ones and most of the other companies have been out for pre-order a while ago.
    Thank you for reading and for the comment! I initially felt the same way looking at users' photos of him but I realized the lighting was not very good in those photos so I remained somewhat optimistic. When I did the review, I took the photos under normal white light to preserve as much of the original figure colour as possible :)

    LoveChopper1 månad sedan#80283554this Tanjiro is awesome, pretty much how I expected him to be. not a fan of that base after seeing the painted prototype but it does not seem that bad based on your review picture.
    on a separate note, heard horror stories of MH pegs snapping off and was reluctant to display my Strawhats. the clumsiness in me does not help (broke 3 out of 10 figures I first unboxed them. however, still succumb to temptations and display ITEM #189854, ITEM #166894, ITEM #805409, ITEM #582596, ITEM #189856, etc.... hope for the best when i need to move them >.<
    juz curious. so now the 2 figures cannot stand? any chances of fixing?

    I broke one peg on the Robin SA figure, she still has three others so she can stand as usual. I glued the peg back but I don't know how long it will hold up because they went back in the box anyway (I had been storing away my POPs because of limited display space). The Nami one has two pegs so she likewise can also stand as usual, but that peg is stuck in her foot. Luckily for me, the rest of the POPs came away without harm. I knew of the risk and was very careful handling them but those two still snapped regardless.
