This is a very lovely statue with far better paintwork than I was expecting, her expression is very lively and cute, far better than the pvc version released by Yamato.
Rumi Kinoshita. The second of my first three gathering figures. I must admit I'm a bit dissapointed because she's smaller than I expected (my only reference was the pictures in the E2046 web site) but other than that, it's an excellent figure. I like the painting and the removable magnetic pieces Smile Like Uesugi Kenshin, this figure arrived in perfect conditions. Again, not even a scratch on the cardboard box. If GK figures are perfectly delivered, Gathering figures push new boundaries! Good work! Again, happy new year to everyone Very Happy Oscar
So here it is, my second purchase from E2046 arrived today. First off all, nothing is broken or demaged, Rumi looks quite like on the reference pictures. To give a better impression of what I got I took a few pics with my digicam (the quality is so so, the cam has unfortunately big probs with artificial light, that much for Samsung, I'll get myself a better one on Christmas): http://picasaweb.google.de/visual.novels/RumiKinoshitaGatheringE2046/photo#s5128248428091970850 So, where do we start.. right: The packaging was well done, as said before nothing was demaged. And there are a few parts which can be demaged, especially the wings or the hair. German postal service is very good though So first of all I took all parts out and checked if the paiting and overall sculpture quality is alright, nothing here either - good! A thing I don't like though is Rumis belly. The line upon it, it looks just unnatural. A bit stupid was the drill hole in the base which was a tid to small, but what a man is has a driller and so I helped myself here and 2 minutes later she stood well and save. Next part was putting her clothes on. I just want to mention here that the painting on her underwear is really great with a lot of love for the detail, but I have a fable for maid dresses, hmm..^^ So the magnetic future works well and as it should. It's only important to start with the white rock, than the top part of it and then the rest. What I don't understand is why the front part (that which covers her bra) isn't one piece but two. It'd look definitely better as one, although there isn't a gap so I don't wanna complain to much here. When you have put the front and back part on her you'll notice there's a small gap on both sides between those parts. You only see that when you look really close, moreover you also have that on the reference pics, so no complain here either. Now we come to the last and most tricky part: The broom. I was very worried that I could break something since the hole in her hand is very tight and I had to use strong pressure and rotate the broom to finaly get it in its position. Also the painting on the top of the broom was slightly demaged. Nothing big though and after polishing it a bit it looks almost like it was before (note: the pic is before polishing). So lets come to the conclusion. First off all the sculpture is great. Rumi looks well and as she should with her maid dress and in her underwear. Second the painting is great. The shading is well done and I only noticed two small "bugs", but you only see them if you search for them The assembly was alright, I think E2046 should controll the drill hole better in the future, also I think that stuff like attaching a broom into a hand should be solved in a different way, maybe magnetic would be an idea here too? Overall a nice figurine and definitely not my last one from E2046! My Halloween Girl is already shipped so I'll write a similar review for her once she has arrived. Final mark: 8.2/10 Now the only thing I have left to say is: I need a closed cabinet to display my figurines, open sucks, dust everywhere >.<
Received this kit this morning, it's a bit long for EMS, strange. anyway, this kit's magnetic mechanism is 100% better than before, perfect now, no scratch anymore, i love it. well done. little minor bad point. 1) the base hole too small, cannot fit in at all, but no hassle, i drilled bigger by myself without any problem. 2) the sweep handle cannot fit to the hand at all, it's too tight , i cannot fit in without scratch the handle and the only disappointment about this kit were 1) eyes can paint more detail, so far it's just a little too simple. 2) underwear hand paint a bit too rough.
Great, Fantastic, How can I find the right words for these two kits? I dont know. Avery Great Thanks to the guys from the Gathring and E2046 Team! Best regards to all karino
Really like this piece. Magnetic garments fit quite well. I was disappointed when I found out that one of her hair and one of the wings were broken... sigh! Anyway I will try to repair... Marco
Really awesome! She has great details all over. Very nice paint job and assembly. One small hair piece broke during shipping but it was a very easy repair. I very much like the magnetic feature. I am not using the white under piece to her skirt because it seems to push the outfit up too much causing the shirt to not fit tightly. But I think she looks better without it anyway. Also the hole in the base where you insert her peg was a bit too small but once again, easy fix >^_^<
Figure arrived in perfect condition, the magnetic dress is very well done, overall a very good figure.
I awoke this morning to find that Rumi Kinoshita has arrived. I run out and grab my scissors and start to open the box. I was looking forward to this one and I have to say I am mildly disappointed. As I removed her from the plastic that surrounds the main body I noticed that the left wing and right ribbon have broken off. (Based on her perspective) I glued them back but they are a bit off I think. The base is a wooden base like Hip Cover girl. While I prefer the acrylic mirrored bases I have to say I am thankful that this one was wooden. The hole for Rumi's peg was too small so it wouldn't go in. Lucky for me I have a drill set. I just hope mine was a mistake because I doubt everyone that ordered Rumi has a drill set laying around the house. The casting is excellent as always but the paint job is a mixed bag. I would say from her shoes to about her waist the paint job is near perfect. Once you get past her waist the paint job starts getting a bit "rough". It's hard to put it into words and is something that needs pictures. If you would like some I will try to get them. The paint job is great once you get back to her head and hair. If I had to sum it up in one sentence I would say to keep her at a distance. The problems I have with the paint job are only things you can notice if you are either looking for them or really close to Rumi. The Gathering extra for this one is magnetic. You can have he displayed in her bra and panties or in her costume. Unfortunately the rough paint job on her body does hurt her in her bra and panties but as I said before as long as you keep her at a distance the paint job looks great. Her dress is made up of about 7 pieces. Putting them on is a complete bitch and I was fighting with it for a good 15 min before I managed to get it all in an acceptable position. The seams are really noticeable especially on the top skirt, the sides of her shirt, and the front two halves of the shirt. I am not really sure if I would recommend her to someone. I say if you are a Pia Carrot fan and like me want to keep her in her dress then u should be fine. If you want to have her without her costume then I think you might want to skip this one. Also as a tip I would recommend a bit of glue for the broom.
