Today I'll be reviewing MM ( えむえむ) 1/8 PVC by Max Factory. That's her official name, but I prefer to call her Emu Emu (which is how you pronounce えむえむ), though I'll be simplifying her name to MM for this review. She comes from the manga/anime Kemeko Deluxe! She was released in June of 2008, and meant to go along with the Nendoroid Plus: Kemeko. I found her at Robert's Anime Corner Store for $67.48 though it looks like she's out of stock now. I really wanted to get the Nendo Kemeko to go with because they combine, but I haven't been able to find her anywhere yet. I'm going to keep looking though.
MM is well made, but she seems quite awkward by herself. She really is meant to go along with the Nendoroid Plus Kemeko, and it's pretty obvious when you look at how she's held up by her base. She doesn't really look bad but the base and metal rod in her foot has her looking odd. She's held up on one foot by a metal rod that goes in the base and up her foot. She comes with an extra metal rod that is meant for holding Kemeko in place. MM's legs both come off and she can be attached to an extra head piece of Kemeko that's included along with her. The Kemeko head really can't be used on the base without the Nendoroid present, but I took some pictures of MM coming out of the Kemeko head anyways. If you've seen the anime or read the manga the whole concept of MM coming out of Kemeko's mouth would make sense, as Kemeko is a sort of mecha that MM practically lives inside. The sculpting on MM is great, Max Factory did a wonderful job making her. Hopefully I'll be able to find Kemeko but if not she still looks good alone.
If you haven't seen Kemeko Deluxe! you might be interested in Riiana's review of the anime.
