Jenthehen (4 ora/e fa) #45629876Considering she’s 1/4 scale (even if she runs small for that scale), being under $100 makes her pretty cheap. Freeing 1/4 scale are around $200 these days and often with no nudity!

True, but a FREEing scale also is much higher quality and the most similar comparison would be Morikura En's kigae morning: ITEM #604595 Most shops are selling her for (after converting to USD) roughly 140-150, and she comes with two different display options. Given the quality difference, I honestly would much rather have paid the premium for a PVC version of Anubis, especially since Houtengeki is one of my favorite illustrators. Don't get me wrong, I'm alright with the price, just feel like we should have gotten more even with the price as low as it is.

Vaikyuko (4 ora/e fa) #45629228While I do like her and I think she came out alright, the fact that she's smaller than advertised, as well as terrifyingly hollow and lightweight (seriously, I could blow her over with a strong breath) given her price? Not going to order from Insight again. I was hoping they were more like Pulchra than FOTS but...yeah. On the plus side, she's at least packaged somewhat decently versus the other products in this 3D printing umbrella.
Also, good lord, the smell from the plastic is awful.

I really like the base on this one - I'm not usually into no legs / "bust only" figures, but this was pretty creative with the "standing in water" look.

EDIT - ok, I'm in love with the photos for this. ORDERED!

7/10 overall sounds very generous after your description, although do you think maybe applying a topcoat and high grit sanding yourself would help?
It is fine for now, asides from the left arm nothing really stands out too terribly. I am fortunate that my Anubis looks pretty good. My worry about sanding is that this figure is hollow and I don't know how thin the walls of her arms are. Since it is on the backside, I have no pressure to attempt that. If one shows up and a pretty binned price, I might attempt that though.

Another thing to note about this figure, the parts that were untouched look pretty good. I am actually really impressed. The 3D lines that were perfect created a good skin like look and matte appearance. Like her chest, aside from that one scratch it looks perfectly fine. You'd have to get in real close to see them.

The printing process is not perfect though. The heating element could blob up, there could be runs, something shook the printer bed and where Insight had their guys touch up really stands out. You will see uniform lines then all of a sudden sanding marks that go in a different direction. They are mostly seen on her lower torso and lower arm area under her breast and underneath her breast. I willing to bet that since the torso was printed at a 45 degree angle, that was the side that had supports printed on and they had to sand down all those nubs.

7 out of 10 is mostly because Anubis looks cute and I love this sculpt.

Long version:

Thank you so much for this very very useful long version and additional pictures. Unfortunately, it seems the situation seems even worse than I thought and I no longer have any regrets having cancelled my pre-order. This clearly belongs in the "Good from Far, but Far from Good" category. This looks to me like a basis you start from, not a final product. They should have removed the 3D printing lines and any defects with sandpaper starting with say 400, then 800, and finishing with 1200 or 1500. That of course would eat into their profit margins and they would also have to make figure more solid. It is really a silly strategy from Insight to release something like this. I mean, they can only get away with fooling us once. Now that we all know this, who is going to order again?

Uploaded photos and here are my thoughts on this figure.

Long version:

Well,where to start? It definitely was packed nicely, but the material is SO goddamn brittle. Two tips of her hair broke in box, but it isn't that noticeable (Going to paint over the broken ends). She weighs as much as an empty soda bottle and can be easily knocked over like one, no exaggeration. Like others have said, the base absolutely does not hold her in place and she is top heavy. I ended up using a glue gun to secure her to it.

About the paint job, the only thing that looks like it has paint is her hair and it is sega-prize-figure-tier quality. The face paint are probably printed decals applied with heat with a touch of gloss on the lips and painted to show separation.

They sanded some parts of the figure and left other parts untouched. The markings from the sand paper are very apparent, probably explains the dusty feeling all over the figure. That probably also means they didn't spend extra money to use flat clear coating on her either; doesn't look like it.

Most of the 3D lines aren't noticeable from like 3 feet, but others can stand out no matter how far you are standing. Like the back of one of her arms; the 3D lines are terrible.

The painting on her boobs aren't that bad and they didn't maul them with sand paper. However, johnny donuts at the factory put a large scratch on one of them. I believe it to be human error because other photos either had none or are placed differently. Like, those boobs are the hallmark of this figure and should be 11 out of 10 perfect before shipping out. The fact that someone looked at all those scratch marks and gave it the okay tells me they have very LOW quality standards.

Overall the figure is pretty cute, and passable. I like it, but when you factor in price it is like you paid for a 100+ USD prize figure, except the prize figure wouldn't shatter into a million pieces if you dropped it. 3D printing tech could be ready, but the methods lack quality control at different stages. Like, how do you control the sanding process? Painting becomes an issue too since the body was mostly one piece (They solved that by not painting jack shit and having the material the right color). What pisses me off the most is the quality control. The company is ultimately responsible for final QA and some of this shit shouldn't have shipped out in the state they were. Also, 100+ USD and I can't get a touch of Mr.Hobby Top Coat? Insight, you fucking cheap bastards. Everything about this screams to me that they wanted the most money for the least amount of effort and they got my money. Probably the last time too.

Summary: 7/10 It's not bad, Anubis is pretty cute and the sculpt is nice. Just don't look too closely. I absolutely recommend that if you want a figure from them, DO NOT PRE-ORDER. Wait to see how the final product is, get it after market and to never pay full price.

Welp, looks like NY still does the ghetto ass makeshift packaging and charges full for EMS to skim off some profit from shipping. I hope it is in one piece.
