Nice. I don’t follow figures closely, but it’s crazy that you’d get one of this quality at that price point now. great to see.

    Yeah. Late 90s, there were a few prepainted figures, but often cheap in price and appearance. They were sort of like upscale action figures. I figured with the flying hair, they might have had to use something stiffer than PVC and maybe make it plug into her head so it’d keep the right shape in shipping. Either way, it’s awesome that you don’t have to be a master artist to have a figure like this now.

    Forgive my ignorance – I’m from the past… Some of those parts look pretty breakable – how would you receive a figure like that? Fully assembled? Mostly assembled with a few slot-in pieces? In the 90s, a figure like that would be made of brittle resin, cost 2-3x as much, and come in a bunch of unpainted pieces you’d have to sand seams off of, glue together, prime, and paint yourself…

    Searched おじモン on Canadian Apple store… found. Confirmed it’s available outside Japan.

    Do you know the eyeglass market in Japan? (I don’t…) It could just be that they’re not under the thumb of the Luxottica price fixing cartel over there. I order prescription eyeglasses from the USA (via China I suspect) for $10-20 sometimes and they work great. With modern tech there’s no good excuse for glasses costing upward of $100 unless they’re crafted as fine jewelry.

    “Circle lenses” – they make your irises look bigger, so if you open your eyes wide, you can get a “cute, anime look.” …in theory.

    Fact checking is always appreciated. Thanks.

    IMO the Kenshin duels with Saito Hajime and Seta Sojiro were better. By the time he reached Shishio, things were getting into the edge of ridiculous Dragon Ball fight territory.
