Comentários Shiro 1/7 (Kotobukiya) Review

  • Moro5 anos atrás#2439349You're clearly not seeing the comments I am. Nearly EVERY TIME Koto is brought up, the cult of GSC/Max Factory is there to call it second-rate/subpar/shitty. They're the worst about it by far. Cult of Alter isn't much better but nowadays they're piling on OMG RUINED on Alter figures too :/

    Brand loyalty and brand hate is an interesting thing, isn't it? It can be out of control XD

    Poyanyo5 anos atrás#2439341I honestly don't think that there's a lot of Koto hate going around. In fact, I've seen more people argue that Koto is a good company! Of course, this is completely anecdotal. :p I think this figure just got too hyped, and prototype looked perfect. Then, the final product came, and Koto messed up a bit. Still an overall nice figure, and I'm sure a lot of people had a knee-jerk reaction to it (myself included).
    On another note, I loved the review! I always enjoy reading these on MFC, even if they're of figures I probably won't buy. C:


    Thanks you very much for the kind words. I think you're exactly right. This figure was hyped a ridiculous amount, and like anything that's hyped, when there's a problem, people will naturally have a, as you put it, knee-jerk reaction. It's still a very pretty figure though. As for the Koto hate, yeah, there are people like me who will, for the most part, defend them and there's maybe slightly less hate than there was, but after this, that hate may increase again :/ Either way, i'm still going to buy their figures.

    Revien5 anos atrás#2439448The problem here is that this was a $100+ figure. It doesn't matter which company puts out the figure, for that much they should have pushed back the release date and ironed out the very obvious and many QC issues that Shiro has. I've personally also completely lost patience with companies showing one thing in their pre-release photos and then delivering another thing in their actual product (the hair in this case).
    Are we as a hobby community slowly loosing perspective on how much money we're paying for figures vs. what their quality is actually worth? People should be angry with Kotobukiya. And people absolutely should be comparing them with companies who put out better quality products for the same price. This is what business competition is all about.
    Thank you for the review Superstickman. I'm relieved that I decided to give my PO on this one away, despite how much I initially really wanted her. Most of the issues may not have been a deal breaker for me, but the surprise hair transparency definitely was (the one figure trend I just can't get behind).


    You make some good points, and i do agree with you. I don't regret my purchase but this figure really isn't worth the full price. I do think Koto should have pushed the figure back a bit to work on the flaws. Regardless, thanks for the kind words.

    Moro5 anos atrás#2439103I have lots of Koto figures and I've been pretty happy with all of them but of course that doesn't mean they don't make mistakes. It seems they had some issues with this figure that they just couldn't get ironed out. My older Koto figures are pretty rough around the edges as well. But like you said, Koto gets a lot of undeserved hate, I think maybe because people expect perfection when no company can deliver perfection.

    My thoughts exactly. You hit the nail on the head :)
