AmiAmi Pre-owned Review: Hiyori Pixy (Box:B Body:B)AmiAmi Pre-owned Review: Hiyori Pixy (Box:B Body:B)

RaiskiRaiski6 anno/i faReview
Another AmiAmi's Preowned review by yours truly. I also wrote a little about other figures I've bought from there at the end of this article, so be sure to check it out!

Ugh, I hate how I either can take overexposed pictures when it's sunny outside, or blurry dark pictures because I haven't got a decent way to light my figures when shooting inside. ^^;


So! I promised to do this a while ago and did take the pictures, but then life happened...and I haven't had the time/effort/energy to edit them for this review. But now it's done!

Good Smile Company's Hioyri Pixy 1/8 (Box:B Body:B)

The Box
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Raiski1352121999.jpeghttp://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Raiski1352122001.jpeghttp://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Raiski1352122003.jpeghttp://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Raiski1352122005.jpeghttp://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Raiski1352122007.jpeg

The box seems a bit worn out and the cardboard of the box is a bit bent on the top. I'd say B rating is appropriate since it's clearly been opened and not quite as good condition as a brand new box would be, but still in good shape overall.
Her price was 3,980 yen btw.

The Figure
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Raiski1352122509.jpeg

This is my boyfriend's figure. I like her quite a lot, she's a real cutie! Also great for a Halloween accessory, heh.

The condition of the figure itself is great! No scratches, paint transfers, visible mold lines or the like. Just a couple dots of dirt and lots of dust in hard to reach places. Can't see it? I'll try to highlight them for you...

The inside of her, erm, outfit? is clearly covered in gray dust. A good bath got those off easily.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Raiski1352122175.jpeg

More dust, and some weird dirt spots on her "pants" and base. Those were also easy to get off, but I wonder what might have caused them?

Dusty shoes...

For me, dust and dirt of this caliber is nothing. It's just a sign that she has been displayed, and cleaned regularly even, but not all that thoroughly as you can see. I think she looks great! I bet some of our figures are actually dustier at the moment... ^^;

The Base

I love it, it's so cute. It has two dirt spots, they are pretty hard to spot from the picture. But then again, they aren't easy to spot even with the naked eye.

Other AmiAmi's Preowned items I've bought so far include:


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/48.jpg Made a review of her earlier -> BLOG #4014

I thought I'd list other stuff I've gotten here. These don't really have anything interesting to note, so a full review seems a bit pointless.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/15587.jpg (Box:B/Body:A) Unopened, unused. In perfect condition and I love her!
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/155.jpg (Box:B/Body:B) Lightly dusty, otherwise in perfect condition.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/4716.jpg (Box:B/Body:B) Her box is SO YELLOW! Otherwise in perfect condition, not even dusty.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/386.jpg (Box:B/Body:C) This I was really suprised about! She was marked as C and I expected to find some damage...but it's just basic Konami MMS quality. She must have been played with, but that's about it. Her skin colored hand parts all lack the detachable joint, I dunno if you're supposed to use the ones that come with her glove hands or if this is what makes the figure a C rating one..?

And here's what I have on order atm:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/78366.jpg (Box:B/Body:B) http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/39.jpg (Box:B/Body:B) http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/25110.jpg (Box:B/Body:B)

Again, if you've got any questions, want more pictures, or feel like there's something you need to say, shoot away! I'd love to hear your thoughts. :3

Raiski (6 anno/i fa) #1225697Heh, ouch! It's the same for me, I have to forbid myself from looking at the section. But then if I have some room in a combined order I'll think "if I find something really cheap & nice I'll get it..." and end up dooming myself. ^^;

Same thing happened to me early this month after I failed to fight the temptation of getting that $22 big Al (ITEM #586)...

One of the oldest and devilish tricks I always keep in mind to use whenever I saw a Holy Grail selling on that section (unless you want to get them shipped as soon as possible) is to combined it with a Pre-ordered item that's scheduled to be released at the end of the month (preferably those that hasn't experienced any delays since delayed items may always tend to surprise you by getting released in the middle of the month despite the scheduled release date was stated to be later). The moment they're released, I'm already a few days before getting my paycheck :)

Oddly enough, Pre-Owned items seems to be a little more flexible when it comes to this trick; new In-Stock items aren't usually combine-able with stuff estimated to be released in the following month while the former one can be combined with almost any order. If I'm not mistaken, I've been keeping a Pre-owned stock of ITEM #27635 in my order for almost two months~

Kirageddon (6 anno/i fa) #1225493There's exactly no way I won't vote "No, it's just too good!" :<
Eversince AmiAmi started putting a lot of good stuff in that section, my monthly budget on figure collecting has changed from just paying stuff I preordered from months ago or buying figures on their bargain bin to a situation where the Pre-Owned section has left me with an addiction of camping on that page especially during the usual hours where they'll usually start updating their stocks, looking for Grails and extreme bargains. So yea, from 1-2 figures per month, to 1-2 figures per week..........
Dat ass, btw.

Oh yea, I hear you. B)

Raiski (6 anno/i fa) #1216128Haha, I wouldn't mind owning her myself either. :P



I'm glad this is helpful for someone out there! :3 Yeah, so far I've had nothing but good experiences.

What did you order from there, if I can ask? ^^


I ordered her: ITEM #5466

I was SO excited! She was on my priority wishlist for a long time and she's not really around Mandarake of Jungle often ;___;

Also, I just got my pre-owned Dark Precure ITEM #78366 and she is as perfect as can be! There was a miniscule amount of dust on her, but that's taken care of. Loving her~ <3
