Comments Fate/Grand Order - Tomoe Gozen - 1/7 - Archer, Heroic Spirit Traveling Outfit Ver (Max Factory)

  • Just grabbed one on amiami! I'm not a fan of the fate series (yet), however this figure was too beautiful to pass up. I'm a sucker for red eyes and horns ;)

    Mine finally came in today! And I am super impressed with the attention to detail; she's quite a work of art. But please don't be a dumbass like me and drop the pole. The ornament at the base of the umbrella is REALLY a pain in the ass to put back.

    Where to start with this... Okay, the packaging is really exquisite. The magic colours used are white, red, blue and gold. And as we carry on, we will notice these colours featured prominently in the figure itself. Pretty pictures on both the left and right, and the gold accents used in conjunction with the text makes the box look classy. I had difficulty opening the box from the top without damaging it, so I opened it from the bottom. It's the first time I had to do that. Unfortunately, there was a crack on the plastic blister which was annoying to me.

    Tomoe herself is wearing a type of Chinese dress known as a cheongsam/qipao. It wraps around her body very nicely and accentuates her excellent figure. Accompanied by a sash and umbrella, it really completes the oriental look.

    Moving on to the sculpt, I think the attention to detail is painstakingly visible. The pose is simple, but captures Tomoe's elegance nicely. Fine details include the knots holding the outfit together, orbs attached to her hair, her sleeves, and the thin reeds on the umbrella. All of which are executed superbly. Also, my favourite part texturally is the dress itself. You can run your fingers across the red parts of her dress, and you would notice that there is a really fine 3D texture rather than simply paintwork.

    Ah yes, this provides me with a lovely segway into the paintwork. The devil is in the detail (haha)! Firstly, the paintwork is clean and within the line. We really make use of the 4 aforementioned colours! First, looking at the white part of her dress, different shades of white are subtly used to create swirly patterns on her dress. And the red part consists of concentric circles. Notice that gold is cleverly used to break up these coloured sections, to great effect. As a bonus her fingernails are also very well done. :)

    Tomoe's accessories also feature impeccable paintwork. Her umbrella consists of yet again, the 4 magic colours. The middle design features bamboo and a sort of crest similar to the one on her chest, which contributes to the oriental look. And her sash features translucent material, with 4 new magic colours: white, green, orange, and black. Does this remind you of koi fish?

    As you can probably tell by now I am super satisfied with the end product. Well worth the long wait! I might shed a tear of joy, because this is probably the most detailed figure I own. This is my first figure from Max Factory, and they really knocked it out of the park. And the final score is...

    View spoilerHide spoilerunsurprisingly, a solid 10/10!

    starhawk1 month ago#110979833Thanks for the pics. Max Factory usually delivers quality.
    EMS shipping to the US takes me about 1.5 weeks to receive, so lots of people still waiting. I bundled her with Misato figure and used DHL. Hopefully I get it by next Wed.


    You're welcome :). And it's typically the same for me, so I was surprised to get her within 6 days, as opposed to 1.5 weeks (I also live in the US). I had thought maybe some people who ordered her from Ami2 and used DHL (for some reason, single figures seem to go through DHL fast, as opposed to bundled figures), which is why I was surprised about the lack of pictures. I'm hoping the shipping cost wasn't too bad for you (I've always been afraid of combining scales while using DHL), and that they're fast for you.

    Elise_Grimwald1 month ago#110979638I just got mine today (I ordered her from GSC). I'm surprised no one else got her yet, as my PO is slow and I tend to get my figures later than everyone else. By a few days, anyway.
    I uploaded photos of mine. She's absolutely stunning. I didn't see any paint issues, the details are on point, and the texture and paint are exactly like the prototype. I 100% recommend her.
