    victorviper (2 mese/i fa) #39412366For me it's kind of the opposite. When I started collecting, I had little interest in original characters, and I preferred characters that I "knew". However, these days, I don't watch quite as much anime as I did back in the day, so original character appeal to me more, particularly when they've got lots of personality, like Kanna here, or ITEM #464771, or ITEM #99300.
    I can't wait to see how ITEM #676072 turns out once it's painted! Native's getting a little crazy these days with their prices, so I just hope she's not crazy expensive!



    Hehe, interesting as it was very different for me! When I was a newbie collector I was on a way stricter budget and mostly got 'cheap' figures, next to the (online) market not being so widely available yet. So I got many many figures from series I did not know about (yet). So what I did, is that I kept a list of figures where I did not read/play/watch their origin and I would try to read/play/watch it when possible. After a while that list got way longer than I had the time to check their sources and also I got stuck on multiple sources being not available (for example, untranslated visual novels).

    I'm pretty sure that when ITEM #676072 pre-orders open, that I won't have my collection displays at a point yet where I know she will (not) fit, so I'm going to gamble on the aftermarket on that one. I do have to say that I have noticed, maybe because of all the prices for figures skyrocketing in the last 2-3 years, I notice less crazy things happening on the aftermarket than before. Of course it's not for all Native figures, but while in the past you were almost 100% guaranteed a Native figure it's price would get higher on the aftermarket, nowadays it seems like a lot more keep being priced around their release price or a bit lower for opened ones.

    Maakie (2 mese/i fa) #39372699It maybe would have been a bit better if the horizontal line was a slightly bit lower. Meanwhile I can't find any pictures of real hair or wig hair showing what I mean, so I guess we're both stuck into expressing it here haha!
    Nothing wrong with getting more and more 18+ figures. :) Only for some collectors that care a lot about characters, most of these 18+ figures are original characters or they are from only 1 hentai/doujin, which makes it hard for some to get attached to them. Wasn't also most of them being an original character a 'problem' for you in the past?
    Hehe, for me it was indeed like that for a while. I started with SFW figures, then a few cast-offable figures sneaked in. After a while I got my first Native's (indeed back then, pretty much the only good quality NSFW manufacturer). Then I did a big switch because I wanted to bring my collection back to characters I loved, so pretty much all my original characters and one-shot characters needed to go. Nowadays I don't have any 18+ figures in my collection, only some cast-offables (mainly from Queen's Blade) and I only think I will pick up ITEM #676072 in the future, because well...it's Humikane's design and I am still a huge fan and collector of his work. I will wait it out a bit more on how my displays will be when I have everything set up to see how well she will fit in there.

    victorviper (2 mese/i fa) #39276741In PICTURE #2011564 it just looks to me like she's almost wearing a beret or something on top of her head, or maybe the "horizontal" pieces of hair don't look very natural. Maybe it's just one of those things I can't quite put into words...
    I have added quite a few 18+ figures this year, even though for a while I didn't have much of anything in that category. I think once ITEM #209601 and ITEM #464771 turned out so nice, the floodgates were opened for having more 18+ figures in my collection :). Plus, these days, there are a *lot* more choices for nice 18+ figures. It used to be Native and no one else, but these days, a lot more companies have starting making mature figures.
    I also have this hypothesis that pretty much *all* figure collections get gradually more 18+ over time. When I first started collecting, I thought my castoffable Queens Blade figures were downright scandalous :).

    Maakie (2 mese/i fa) #39249959Nice review again! :) You are getting more and more 18+ figures. ;) I think this figure looks cute, but that used condom is a bit too much for me. She does have an adorable face though and I'm impressed at the high amount of display options! Also, maybe I misunderstood, but the 'weird horizontal seam' you mention about her hair, seems to be quite a regular hairdo? I can't find an example picture right now, but if a girl wants to have both loose hair and both tails, that is the best way to 'seperate' your hair. (Unless I misunderstood your point. :P)

    victorviper (4 mese/i fa) #37438807You're probably right there. At one point, I thought that ITEM #106566 was a downright scandalous addition to my collection. These days, no one bats an eye at that figure when looking at my collection :).

    My first ecchi figure was an Escalayer by Volks (which I once pointed out in a previous discussion). However, technically I never displayed her at home and thus the spot for the most 18+ figure was Shiho Nadeshico ITEM #14733. She is rather tame, but it was from an era before huge breasts were the norm. I always got weird an nasty comments from visitor because of her... Go figure out.

    BTW, I got Kanna today. Totally a cute pie and the best ordering mistake I ever made in my entire life time.

    arparso (4 mese/i fa) #37476966They "kind of" fixed that issue for the black variant by offering free replacement parts. Those replace her whole lower body including her legs and change the way the legs and stockings attach to each other.
    In fact, I just got these parts last week shipped to me by Solaris Japan (where I got Matsouri from), free of charge, which I found especially nice of them. The new parts work really well and are a seamless replacement to the old ones. I'm pretty sure they would be included if they decided to do another color variant of hers.


    That's the issue that has held me back from getting Matsuri 2.0. She's been readily available on AmiAmi, but with the dreaded "without replacement parts" notation, AmiAmi is rather notorious for not wanting to get involved with parts replacement, and I don't know how generous Skytube would be doling out replacement parts for secondhand figures.

    But, I figure that if Skytube had to do a special production run to make parts for Matsuri, maybe they would say "let's just do another color variant while we're at it"...

    moonstarfc (4 mese/i fa) #37445322Nice review, I have Kanna too and I think she's gorgeous! Skytube figures are really nice, I think they definitely compare well to my Native ones.

    Also, I like that Skytube seems to make larger scale figures as the norm. I think with 18+ figures, the larger scale is preferable.

    Heavenly_Otaku (4 mese/i fa) #37449153This is a good review of Kanna. I was contemplating on whether I should acquire her. I have reached a decision with this review. Thank you!

    Glad I could help you make a decision :). She's a great figure.

    dark-freefire (4 mese/i fa) #37475290nice Review again : D, looking Forward for the new kanna figure.

    I'm definitely intrigued by the new Kanna figure that has been teased. Hopefully, WonFes will see that figure get an update.

    It'll be interesting to see if Kanna 2.0 ends up having any sort of remotely SFW display option, but given the source artwork that seems kind of unlikely.

    victorviper (4 mese/i fa) #37438911Speaking of Matsuri, I'm kind of hoping Skytube will tease a new color variant of Matsuri 2.0 at the upcoming WonFes; I'd like to see a white dress version like they did with the original, and maybe if they do a color variant, they can fix those issues with her stockings/legs.
