Elwing 1/8 Scale (Kotobukiya)


I’ve decided to do “Elwing 1/8 Scale”‘s review 1st, since she’s quite easy to do a review on ^^;

Anyway, Elwing was released not long ago, atleast officially, on June 18th, 2008. To tell the truth, I can’t really keep up with Elwing’s release date~XD Originally she was scheduled for June 24th release, and then all of a sudden, I saw a post that someone already gotten her on the 12th ( > _ < ); So yeah, quite confusing ^^;

Elwing is my 2nd Kotobukiya figure and also the 1st of Kotobukiya’s Shining series figure that I have. I think Elwing is the 5th to be released from the series. My first impression of the figure is…Wow~XD I can assure you that the figure itself is much-much better than those preview images that you saw on the net. The sculpting and the paint job is amazing, and I personally like the “Wings” on her head. They’re skillfully sculpted.

The skirt can be casted off, and the figure also comes with her Bow.

Just some warning. Please be careful when handling her Bow. The Bow String is made out of a Super Thin String-Like Plastic. I almost snapped the string when taking it out of the box ( > _ < ); Also, the figure itself is already screwed to the base stand. So be careful when removing her from the box.

Anyway, let’s the photos do the talk ^^
