    JetJockey (3 mies. temu) #59012426Well done review.
    I know I've seen the fingerprint thing on Sideshow Collectibles statues. You would think with the price they charge that wouldn't get through quality control. I hope we don't see more of this problem from Japanese companies in the future.


    Thank you for liking the review! :)

    Oh yikes, that's even worse. I already find it not acceptable for a ~$90 figure, but at their price range it's definitely not OK. I hope the customers that had those issues got replacements or partial refunds from Sideshow!

    With my specific figure here you can say that a QC maybe just went at looking at the figure from a spin-around view, which made the fingerprints (especially the brown ones) go unnoticed. But yeah, Koto is known for a bit more slip-ups, which is definitely acceptable for their prices compared to other manufacturers, but I really draw the line at those fingerprints. Luckily I've never had fingerprint issues with any other of my Koto figures and also haven't seen anyone else on this site with something similar. The Koto Customer Support seemed quite shocked as well with my pictures!

    Rajke (3 mies. temu) #58620884Thanks for reviewing her. Overall i think she looks great. Her face is indeed something debatable and for me it is the grinning part next to the wound that is somehow conflicting with the other side of her mouth. The details are amazing and the pose is very strong and matching with the character. :D

    Yeah, that grinning is something that looked good 2D, but seems a bit strange in 3D. For the 3D version her mouth should be more open or they should have kept it completely closed. I still like it, but I can understand how for others it might be a reason (not) to buy.

    But your last sentence really confirms with me how this figures is so matching for Ash Williams and I think Kotobukiya really outdid themselves especially if you look at her release price. :)

    victorviper (3 mies. temu) #58611181Generally, I haven't had too much interest in these "western bishoujo" figures, but this one is quite neat with the horror+bishoujo theme. Plus, since the Evil Dead movies were never meant to be taken too seriously, that franchise is the perfect match for a figure like this.
    It would be interesting to know how the sales numbers for a figure like this split between Japan and the USA/Europe, as I wonder how well known the source material is in Japan and I wonder what the market is in the USA/Europe for very niche figures like this (how much overlap is there between the Evil Dead fandom and the figure buying community?).


    Thanks for your comment. :) And yeah I fully agree, this is probably the most perfect match so far in the Horror Bishoujo line. For me, this figure also feels the most matching to her male counterpart character so far. :)

    I have absolutely no clue on the popularity of Evil Dead (2) in Japan, so if anyone reading this can enlighten us, I would love to know as well. :) I do know with this figure that her limited edition was only sold at Hot Topic (USA) and Tokyo Comic Con (JP). I recently read some articles about the USA-centric comic cons also getting bigger in Japan and there are lots of photos online of Japanese visitors at TCC in cosplays almost limited to only USA comic/movie characters. So Western pop culture seems to be growing bigger in Japan and this figure line could also boost the popularity of certain franchises over there I assume. :)
