Rin Kagamine Figma




Move over road roller, the Kagamine twins, by Max Factory have arrived! Rather than do them both in the same review I figured it would be better to put them in two seperate posts, then follow up with a Vocaloid group shoot soon after. I bought these from Hobby Search, my most favorite trusted figure retailer. First off is Rin Kagamine.





Rin comes with 10 hands, 2 faces and a microphone. The pictures speak for themselves for the most part. The quality of this figure is on par with Miku Hatsune, only the legs are even more flexible. I rate this figure 10/10. If you like Rin I can't suggest a better figure to buy. Then again this is coming from someone who enjoys articulated figures, not everyone has the same taste. One thing to add about her, is that her hands are EASY to remove and replace compared to all the other figmas I own. It's actually a good thing because her sleeves would normally get in the way of moving the hands. I could be a bit biased because I'm a big Vocaloid fan, but I love this figure.






You might notice some of my pictures have dust on them already. The place I live in is extremely dry and always full of dust, it's becoming a royal pain dealing with it. Anyways, you can see from the pictures the amount of detail put into her, right down to Electronic Voice System written on her left leg warmer. Overall, she was an excellent buy for the 2,261 Yen I paid (shipping not included).

Looking good!

I had to cancel my figma Rin & Len because the Yen price goes up.... D:

Sad.... But I will get my Miku Figma! :D

Guess figma did some great job again.
I did not get the Miku figma, so i figured theres no point getting Rin and Len without the main character.

Probably will have to see if i can get the Miku figma at a good price in ebay.

Rin is one of my favorite vocalid, I have been meaning to get a figure of her but I can't choose between the figma version and the nendoroid version.

Otaku Dan: I've updated my Team Blue roster, I believe it's all up to date now banner-wise, I'm such a procrastinator, but hey I finally did it.

Blowfish: yes indeed, I need to learn an alternative cleaning method for figmas besides just dusting too.
