Rinna Mayfield 1/8 ~ KotobukiyaRinna Mayfield 1/8 ~ KotobukiyaReview

Hello everybody~ o(^▽^)o

This time we're gonna take a look at Kotobukiya's Rinna Mayfield. A lovely elf girl I don't know anything about at all. I never played any of the Shining games or the like. I just fell in love with her at first sight. Tbh, I love her since I started collecting figures like 3-4 years ago, but I just got her about 1 year ago? Or something like that. She is displayed together with Xiao-Mei ITEM #235570 another of my favorites and loves at first sight. ❤︎

The review has been sitting in my blog drafts for weeks now. "Why?" you might ask, well... Actually I wanted to wait until I find the box of this beauty, but I couldn't. That's the bad news. I will have to search through my whole room soon anyways, because of the whole Artbook thingy I wanna do which is another story alltogether, and if I find it I will add pictures of it. I swear. If someone has pictures of the box they'd let me use temporary (or forever if I can't find it), that would be great as well.


With that little confession out of the way, let's take a look at Rinna.
She is one of my favorite figures actually. ٩(♡ε♡ )۶
Her backview is in a spoiler for obvious reasons, aka very shirt dress.

Here is a closer look at her base, which she is glued or screwed to. I like the concrete looking part and would have wished just that would have been the base, without the whole white part around it making it unnecessarily big. The prototype just had the concrete part, so... I guess the white part makes it more stable though.

Here are some closer shots of her little friend. If someone can enlighten me about him/her/it, that would be great. xD It looks like a penguin to me, and I love penguins, so insta love, lol.

Rinna's face is so cute. I love her expression! <3 The hat can be removed, but who would ever do that?? It just adds to the cuteness with how big it is.

Her hair sculpt is really great. The seamline between the fringe and the rest of her hair is very well hidden thanks to the many details they put in it. The scrunchies look very good, just like the ribbons. I love her curly twintails. Such a cute hairdo. <3

Even though Rinna’s dress is pretty skimpy, it has a ton of details all around starting with the creases and folds, the ruffles and butterflies, the golden ornaments on her sleeves, the golden outlines, the silver brooch thingy on her chest, and the sweet sweet ribbons. I think Koto did a decent enough job with all of them. Not the most detailed figure ever, but still pretty good.
The painting on the dress – and the whole figure overall – is satisfying as well. There are a couple of tiny spots where the golden paint bleeds into the green and the other way round, but you gotta get really close to see that.
Her dress could have been a teensy bit longer, just to cover up her butt properly, but as her panties aren’t really visible from the right display angle it’s fine, lol. View spoilerHide spoilerAlso, what kind of panties is she wearing anyways?? With how the dress is cut on the side they should be visible there, but they aren’t??? It’s weird, lol.

As I already mentioned before, I love her hat. It’s so big and super cute, with the ruffles and ribbon and butterflies. The whole design of it is just lovely. I’ll never take it off. ヽ( ★ω★)ノ

The design of her boots is very elaborate, cute and cool at the same time. I love the ruffles on top, with the white stockings peeking out. The seashells with the wings – at least they look like that to me – on her knees are beautiful, just like the black and silver parts on the back. The spiky parts look dangerous, like she could cut someone with them, haha, just like she could stab someone with her heels, probably. I just really like them.

Rinna and Xiao-Mei in their home. Here you also have a comparison to a 1/7 Scale, though Rinna is bent over, so standing up she'd probably be almost as big as Tamamo, but just because of her high base and her hat! xD

All in all, even though she isn't perfect, I think this is one of Koto's better figures. As I said, she is one of my personal favorites. If you like the game or just her character (design), you should definitely get her. She's getting a rerelease too! So now is your chance! (。•̀ᴗ-)✧

talentlesstroll2 anno/i fa#39241934I'm currently playing the game, and its pretty fun. Definitely worth picking up if you like jRPGs and high fantasy. Also Tony Taka's art is always great in my book.
I guess gameplay wise it's comparable to the Tales series, but I never played any of those so I'm not sure how true that is.
I've already preordered the re-releases of Rinna and Kirika, just need to find a pre-owned Sonia at a decent price.

I love JRPGs and Tony Taka's artstyle, so I'll pick it up in a few weeks. Even better if it really is like the Tales games. I love those. <3 I've alraedy seen that Sonia figure a couple of times on AmiAmi, so definitely keep an eye on their preowned section. ^^

Gotta get the rereleased game once it goes down in price, lol.

ladyrainyday2 anno/i fa#39239816Pretty important. The main characters all use weapons called Armonics that are a hybrid of weapons and instruments. Rinna's is a rod and trumpet/trombone that she can blow into to play.
Oh, I see! =0
Thank you for the explanation. :)

tomocchi2 anno/i fa#39231025Fromage?? That's even a cute name! xD
Hmm, seems like music/sound is important in that world?

ladyrainyday2 anno/i fa#39221304The little penguin is a sound spirit named Fromage. And yes, he's very cute.

marseille2 anno/i fa#39223141Thanks for sharing this nice review! This was one of the figures that I've been considering getting and she is hard to find in the aftermarket. Luckily a re-release was announced, so I'll probably be able to finally get her.
I wish there were more Rinna figures. I'll never understand why they did her "Beach Heroine" version an 1/12 poorly made scale. :\ She definitely deserves more love!

You're welcome! o/
When I bought her she wasn't that rare. I even got her for like 4000Yen on Mandarake, unopened. xD Guess I was lucky. All my Shining figures - well, mostly Xiao-Mei I got from Mandarake or AmiAmi for less then 5000Yen. I stalked them, lol.
I got the Beach Heroine one as well, because it is cute. But yes, it is not great. They could have made a proper swimsuit figure for her. Would have been better.

RubyRed2 anno/i fa#39194015she was love at first sight for me too ;-)
(btw. how did you arrange the photos like that in groups? did you use a tool? your review looks really neat with that :-)

She has probably a lot of people that love her, haha.
Thank you. :D I use an online site for that. www.fotojet.com...
Just click on the Photo Grid option and you can choose from different formats. How much space there should be, how round the edges should be, it's great. :3
