Kotobukiya - Pokemon Lillie & NebbyKotobukiya - Pokemon Lillie & Nebby

Howdy doo, everyone! It is time for another spiderific review with your favorite arachnid! I would have posted this a few days ago, but I was waiting to see of MFC's Reader's Selection feature on the front page would come back online. But I think I've waited too long as it is to get this posted.

Anyway, let's take a look at Kotobukiya's latest addition to their Pokémon line. Let's take a look at Sun & Moon's dynamic duo, Lillie & Nebby! Click any of the pictures to go to the image page and view them in full resolution for closer examination.

The box is has a lovely and classy design. It features a variety of graphics including pictures of the figure, the original illustration it is based on, stylized plastic windows and embroidered flower designs.

No assembly is needed for this figure. You don't even have to attach the figure to the base as it is clamped on with a screw through her foot. Just free them from the box and they are ready to bring some charm to your Pokémon display.

Here we have Lillie going on a stroll in her signature dress and hat. She is holding onto her hat to stop it from blowing off. Meanwhile, Nebby has gotten out of the bag and is flying off to get in all kinds of trouble. Nebby frequently does this through out the games, thus giving birth to the famous "Get in the Bag" meme.

I am very pleased with Nebby's paint job. There is some great shading work done with his body. The transparent clouds on his head are good too. The assorted lumps on Nebby's body are also well defined.

Speaking of the lumps, I just realized something. I think I know what the dimension of origin Cosmogs come from are. I think Nebby comes from Lumpy Space in Adventure time. Look at the similarities between Cosmog and Lumpy Space Princess.

They are both lumpy purple cloud things and they have stars on them. Coincidence? Or perhaps...Something more profound.

Well, enough totally legit scientific theories. Let's get back to the figure. Here we can see the details in Lillie's hair and overall paint job. Kotobukiya's quality for the Pokémon series has been fairly simplistic so far. Aside from Nebby, there is minimal work done with shading. There is also minimal detail in the hair.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/ChocolateSpider1527354176.jpeg



Then again, there isn't much detail present even in the games due to the visual style. Plus Lillie is the kind of character you would have to have silky smooth hair anyway. So this is actually pretty accurate. Although that seamline on her head is rather unattractive.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/ChocolateSpider1527354174.jpeg




Speaking of simple, that is also how I would describe the base. The base pretty much has the same style as the front of the box. We have a plain circle with some metallic embroidered flower designs along the edges.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/ChocolateSpider1527354166.jpeg




One thing I like about the figure is something I see too many others fail to do. Lillie is standing on her tip toes. Most figures I see doing something like this use a colored piece of plastic using the same color as the foot piece, which I have always found to be an unattractive design flaw. Some will do better by using a clear piece of plastic, which detracts significantly less than the latter. Why one wouldn't go with clear instead of the same color as the foot in the first place, I will never understand.

Koto avoids this design problem entirely by having the foot clamped to the base with a screw. There are no issues with this leaning and supports the figure's weight and position firmly. I look at this and think to myself "This is such a simple and effective solution. Why isn't this method used more often in other figures?"


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/ChocolateSpider1528567837.jpeg




Here is my final verdict on this figure. It is a very lovely figure that looks good at nearly any angle. But considering the price, you might find yourself a tad underwhelmed with the paint job. I would describe the overall quality as just a bit above average. Regardless of any of that, I would highly suggest this figure for any Pokémon fan's collection. This is also a great scale figure for outdoor figure photography. Take it to any patch of flowers and you are guaranteed a lovely shot.

Thank you for taking the time to read this review. I hope it has aided you in your decision whether or not to add this item to your collection. I will now get to work on another Pokémon review. There is a divide among collectors on the subject on unlicensed figures, but I will be reviewing this dynamic resin figure of Lugia by King Finger.

ChocolateSpider (4 mies. temu) #35512924Well here is a brief introduction to them. Lillie is purity and preciousness in human form. You must protect her and give her many head pats. Nebby is a cloud of inter dimensional cosmic puff that is always getting into trouble because he just won't stay in the goddamn bag. Nebby can turn into a super huge lion or bat and essentially becomes a god of the sun or moon. By that point, getting Nebby back in the bag is futile.

Haha...well that does make the figure make more sense considering her pose/expression and what's going on!! LOL!! Fun! LOL...she does indeed look pure and precious too. :D

Lillie turned out great. She is somewhat simplistic but this figure compliments both the character and the artstyle used in the anime and games.
The Nebby get in the bag meme looks great in figure form. Thanks for your review.

Excellent review! It seems to be a common pattern though that Kotobukiya’s prototypes in particular don’t translate all their details into the final product. Nonetheless she turned out great! Enjoy her!

Keep on hunting! This figure will be worth your patience. :D

Lyncfs (4 mies. temu) #35477424Great summary! Love the last photos in the flower field. I am still looking for her for a reasonable price, but I ordered her other figure!
