Miyuki the snow queen. Embrace, Penguin, or what?Miyuki the snow queen. Embrace, Penguin, or what?Ask MFC

Hello, MFC.

I'm thinking of getting Shiba Miyuki figure into my collection, but so far, I'm yet to be certain that any of the ones released (or announced) is worth collecting. Lemme explain.

So, this is the appearance Miyuki we're familiar of. Beautiful young woman, snow white complexion that gives her the name "Yuuki-onna" along with first highschool's green outfit. Then this comes along

Info: 1/7, Made by Embrace Japan, Dengekiya Exclusive.

To be honest, when I see the unpainted version, I fell in love with her in a beat, her pose is just right for me, but when this image came out, it disappointed me. Her skin, to me, isn't Snowy white, but ghostly white instead, not to mention that her out fit is considered "blue" here. So I just pass her at first. Until last night when I rechecked the database (other section of this item), I found these two pics,

The one in this pic is so hopeless that she looks like some kind of shitty bootleg that only belongs in the bin, but

In here? For me, her skin? Just right. Her face? Just right. Her hair? Just right. Her outfit? Just right. She's so perfect that I wish I was able to throw the money into my computer screen and pull the real thing out from it!!! lol

But in the end, I'm stil not quite sure what she really looks like, so I dare not buy her yet.

Edit 1: Adding another pic I've just found

A bit closer to the prototype in this one. Her outfit's too blue-ish for me. TT


Then, wild penguin parade appears

Info: 1/8, Made by Penguin Parade, release date: yet to be announced

Her pose? Ok as well. Her face? Not that good. Her skin, out fit? So-so. And as far as I've heard, Penguin Parade's reputation isn't that promising.

Thus, I'd like to hear your guys' opinion. Which of these two is better? Is Embrace Japan real thing gonna come out good?

If any of you guys have the pictures of the real thing of Embrace Japan's version, please give them to me. The pictures, URL of it, any should do.

Which of these two should turn out better?

The color appears ok, but hey, that's a scary tale there man, especially for that price (exclusive right ~~)

In the end I can't find myself to order Embrace's Miyuki (she's still available here and there) so I'll have to wait for another one.

On a side note, it seems like Mahouka will be printed in English by Yen Press, it's good to see the light novel getting some love. Let's hope Miyuki gets some from other figure companies as well. Meanwhile thanks google cache to allow me to finish the translated volumes of the light novel, ermmmm Yen press (I'll prolly get them along SAO / Spice & Wolf volumes but waiting would be too sad :d)

PICTURE #1231552

The color is just about how I see it in real life. (about 90%?)

The figure itself is quite well done, but all the logistic support is poor from the company. (come with dust in many location which took me good 20+ minutes to clean off with my brush, box look cheap enough to make you wonder if you got ripped off, barely any plastic sheet protecting the figure, easy to see workers who mass produced it really didn't really care)

Quite a shame really.

pulupuluhace 5 años#2705962Look like my figure is stuck inside the west coast port strike... might take extra 2~4 weeks to get to me >_<

I don't know much about the strike since I live outside the U.S but great things(?) may take time. Hope it got solved ASAP. ^^

Tayasuhace 5 años#2694116I don't know about Koto, I do have some of their figures and they're not all of the same "quality" imo. Don't get me wrong they're good, but I'd put their Asuka, Asuna and Leafa on the "cheap" side, while the Muv-luv series and Kuroyukihime are damn good for instance (from what I have).
It'd probably be good if Koto did one anyway, but it's less of a given :d
Broccoli's sculptor for Miyuki made Meiya for Koto btw. From the 5 Muv-luv girls I have she's the least close to the original character (something with the eyes). She still look great though (there isn't much choice anyway for Meiya). I don't wanna be negative but waiting on their Miyuki thinking that makes me wonder if she'll end up right ^^
While we're at it, no other character is getting scales yet, I'd really like a Saegusa...
I'm not sure Mahouka has the same popularity and potential for figures as SAO or others Novels/shows but still, we can dream.
Speaking of SAO... no decent Kirito Scale yet, we're never gonna see Tatsuya. xD




Regarding Koto, I haven't owned any of their scale figures so I can't say much but as far as I can tell, Koto's Asuna is quite good for me , but Leafa on the other hand, isn't that great.

About Broccoli's, I'm quite surprise that they're someone making a fanservice version of her as well, frankly if they can get the color right, I might have to pay more for her!! ^^

Comparing to SAO, I'd long accepted that Mahouka's rating isn't that great so I doubt there'll be any other character released besides Miyuki. As for Tatsuya, most of the male characters I know are made by Bandai, whose quality isn't that great, (Or may be in the "sucks" level w/ some items), and due to the fact that female characters figurine tends to sell more, I don't think that any male character made at the "acceptable" quality is gonna come out soon.

Focusing on Miyuki's Embrace Japan version, I'm quite glad that there're some comments come up that she's exquisite in terms of quality, but my main concern here is the color, since in the official images released, her outfit color appears to be turquoise-blue, which I hate. Newly uploaded pictures in the User's section gave me a bit of hope, but then I realized that they were adjusted, so I still doubt if she's the right version for me.

Go for Embrace Japan's without doubt! I got her a week ago and she's stunning, she look exactly like the prototype.The dress is a ONE-PIECE, no two pieces attached together, but just one piece as intended and without the annoying seam lines. Her hair is just like this i60.tinypic.com... , the white gloss is not the camera flash but it is actually "decolored" to look like that, and it looks beautiful.

Tayasuhace 5 años#2691969Waiting for more pics as well, PP looks bad from the seams, Megahouse is way too small...
Embrace looks good on some 2chan pics and terrible on others
Broccoli's might also be an option but that's giving up on First High's uniform for some fanservice ITEM #236468.
If Alter, GSC or MF could make one, there would be no hesitation


Broccoli's might do. Hope they can get her face and her colors right. Megahouse, besides of being too small, her face is a bit off for me.

I agree that if Alter, GSC, MF or even Koto made her, it would be an instant buy for me as well. As far as I can tell, none of the the manufacturer released so far has made her "exactly right" for me.
