Sometimes it looks like they're putting the faces of 12 year olds on 21 year old bodies.

I just think it's too bad that more people don't like this style. I know everyone has their own likes and dislikes but it doesn't seem like it gets the appreciation that it deserves, especially when it's done by an amazing artist like Shunya Yamashi.ta

Like I said though everyone has their own preferences and this is all just my opinion of course. I think I've made it pretty obvious though that I absolutely love this style. :lol

Yeah, I know what you're saying. It's not a criticism against people's personal tastes and preferences...I mean if you prefer to collect statues that accurately reflect and portray the characters from the source material, fair enough. But you can't expect a bishoujo line to not present the characters with an anime influence...it wouldn't be a bishoujo line now would it?

I am absolutely enjoying this line and appreciate it for what it is. I'm guessing Kotobukiya will be showing these off at Toy Fair.

Yeah, those ranges would be a lot better. The good thing about these being small is that you can display more of these than the comiquettes. I am running out of room because my comiquettes are taking up so much space lol.

Havok
02-13-2010, 03:25 AM
Well in the Anime PVC Figure world, these are reasonably priced. There are figures that are around the same size at the $100 mark. The most I've paid for an Anime figure was around $120 including shipping but the scale was larger than these. I'm not disagreeing that these can be pricey, cause they can be, but I guess I'm more used to the price tags.

I personally think they're worth it and I'll be picking up Rogue soon, which will be my first in this line. Psylocke will probably be the second one when she releases.

Well I think other companies can make statues just as good if not better than SSC. I don't think Koto is quite there yet with the actual statues they've started making but they are getting better. I don't think scale is everything either but that's just my view on it.

And liking the Emma PF or X-23 Comiquette has nothing to do with liking these. If your into this style, which I am as well as others, then your gonna be excited for these. If your not, then that's your preference. Shunya Yamashi.ta happens to be one of my favorite artists also, so for me it's a no brainer.

I agree with you and think Koto definitely has potential. I really like some of the work put out from them especially the upcoming Red Hulk by Sosa. The iron man statues so far were pretty good as well. Even the Thor, Cap statues were decent and I would have got them if not for face sculpt/paint.

I the impact of scale on your choice depends on what kind of person/collector you are. If you dont' mind stats of different scale next to each other or have enough space to properly give them room to breath I doubt it matters much. But I only plan to display a limited amount of stats that go together scalewise so as not to break the harmony of the display but I may cycle them between my abodes. I'm far from a completionist, so I get only buy stuff I like in the scale that fits in with my future display. Also price for pound is important, why get a statue half as big, with lesser or same detail for the same price?

Shunya Yama____a has a style of his own and some will like it and others won't. Personally, I like his style to a degree but not enough to collect his 1:6? scale line.

hey fuzz, I used to think the same way you do, trying to have buy all my statues that are in the same scale. But I soon realize that it is impossible for any company to bring out that consistency.The things is the sculptors don't always have other statues for size references when sculpting a new project. So I realize I was missing out on so many good pieces by simply ruler myself with "scales". So now I collect them all, whatever the scale is, as long as the product itself is worth the money. I disply all my SS in one room and all my BD in another, still feels quite consistant.

Hey Fenjun, thanks for the advice. Well, who knows someday I may go your route. But as it stands, I don't mind missing out on some pieces, if it does not fit my overall display which is going to be really on the small side of collecting. Plus, I am working on 2 separate color coordinated small displays in separate rooms with 2 large custom bases (the pegs of all the statues will all fit into the same base), so I guess that's 2 separate scales and they must look believable together. It's more of building my collection and home along a vision rather than the other way around. Hopefully, when I'm done I can take a photo and show you guys how it looks :)

I'm a fan of anime but not a huge fan. I have Rogue and Black Widow which are amazing. The Dark Phoenix IMO looks to be the best out of the bunch. I like the line but it is definitely not for everyone.

The poses seem physically painful but damn are they sexy.:)
