Just awesome. Beautiful figure (my favorite in my collection), safely packed and friendly customer service. Thank you so much.
The 2020 release is still good! Aside from the ballet slippers and lips being a slightly darker shade than the promo images, looks exactly as advertised. The magnets and holes that hold the parts together work great.
finally received this masterpiece ! I'm so happy, she's just gorgeous ! Painting is amazing, details on her face are well done. I can't do more but recommend to get this piece !
I have collected figures for a long time, and this is hands down one of my absolute favorite figures. The paint job and sculpt is nearly perfect, and I absolutely adore the character. Gathering does an amazing job as usual. Thank you so much again for releasing her painted version again in the limited amount. Despite the delays, I understand why they were needed for quality control, and were totally worth the wait.
Just awesome. Beautiful figure (my favorite in my collection), safely packed and friendly customer service. Thank you so much.
This is my third purchase at e2046 and quite possibly the best one so far. The figure itself is virtually seamless and the paint coating is incredibly smooth. Her wings(?) are beautifully colored, and every gem on the base is intricately arranged. Thus the overall presentation of the figure is stunningly beautiful. I noticed there are a few differences from this re-release to the original version. Her eyes are bit closer to the original prototype and her colors are much more vibrant. I only wish they made her eyebrows a bit tilted like the original. I also noticed some people complaining about her not fitting onto the base, but on mine she fits just fine without any problems! So while I am very happy with the quality, there are a few problems. One of her wings snapped almost immediately out of the box; I barely applied any pressure! Her base was packed so tightly that some of the jewels ended up falling off. Luckily I was able to find all the jewels that fell and repaired them myself. As for her wing, it was rather difficult to fix properly. The wing that didn't broke looks really dirty for some reason, like there's some kind of grime. Luckily it's not too terribly noticeable but it is a flaw I can't look over. The bracelet over her left arm also appears to be floating rather than resting on her arm. The pendant, however, is probably the biggest flaw; it just looks awful. It's blobby and has hastily done details on it. Despite the problems mentioned, I still think this figure is great. If you feel on the fence about her, I say go for it.
Wonderful work as always from e2046. This figure is awesome, great add in my collection. Perfect protection for shipment.
Very gorgeous figurine! Agreed that it was a bit difficult to assemble, but very worth it. I, too, had also been expecting the legs to be of lighter tint to make it appear as though she is wearing tights, but it's very easily overlooked. I love this very much! Customer service for this product was also very excellent.
Quite a nice figure, although not so well-polished as I expected. Quite tricky to assemble, too. The paint on her hands look rough and the paint on her upper skirt chipped off in a couple of places. It's also challenging to put her on her stand - the fitting is too rough. I also expected her legs to be whiter as she is wearing tights. The package was smooth, though. However, her face is really nice and I wanted this figure very much. Thank you.
Figura realmente increible y en muy buen estado, muchas gracias ^^.
Wonderful. Looks just like in the preview pics, together with a VERY careful packing. Also: thank you very, very much Gathering for deciding to re-release this one in particular; you keep putting at the reach our hands well finished works of these beautiful models of beloved but sadly underrated characters (BTW: to have a Rue / Princess Kraehe model to match with this one would be just heavenly...) Hope to deal with you again sometime. See you.
實在是太完美了！ 塗裝素質，地台的素質，堪稱完美！ 本人第一次購買Gathering，個人覺得素質非常好！ 細節處理的非常好，沒有什麽瑕疵！ 包裝非常好，快遞運送時間又好，貨品包裝很好，沒有任何的損壞！ とでも素晴らしいです！！！
I have seen photos of other pre-painted releases from E2046, but this current release is definitely an improvement. I am having a bit of trouble getting her ahoge, and "feelers" on. I think I'll need some glue to secure them. There isn't much support holding the figure onto the base either, so that will need to be modified as well to make it stronger. Otherwise, this is an amazing figure. The paint job is fantastic, especially on her tutu. I have noticed with older pre-painted orders, that the two layers of her tutu are the same color, but with this one there's more of a difference in color. Overall, I am very happy with this figure!
Today, my long looking-for Parcel arrived me. It was send from HK excactly 1 week ago, so it arrived me pretty quickly. And the content?. First of all, I was shocked: The left arm was broken! But it wasn't a big deal to fix it without any vestige, even if you are unskilled. Unfortunaly, it seems like there wasn't any pins between the shoulder and the arm. The transparent parts (i.e. the ahoge, the little wings and the three "feeler" that seems to grow Ahiru from her butt) were packed seperatly. These parts had to assemble to the main figure. With some good glue and skills there shoudn't be any problem. But I hadn't good glue, and it takes some tries to assemble it to the back. I guess, with better glue it wouldn't be a big deal. And the figure? The painting is untained, but differ from the original reference made by Bubba. The underskirt in Bubbas version was pink-transparent, and the Gathering version is opaque grey-pink. The "feeler" mentioned above has a beauty transparent rainbow-colored painting instead of the mono-blue in the original. The only one flaw is the charm which differ from the reference significantly in a chunky way. In the original, it was with transparent parts and it leaves a significant filigree impression and in Gatherings version it was only dark-red and gold, without these transparent parts and this leaves some kind of raw impression. Anyway, besides these critics, you see the effort of these figure, and it is worth its money!
Beautiful! Love the painting, especially on the wing tails. A few parts did break in shipping (one of the tails and an arm) but I glued them back on. Only major gripe is the rather lackluster pendant; it's very bulky compared to the prototype. Still, very striking, love the emotion and delicateness of the figure. Also Princess Tutu totally rocks, so kudos for releasing a stellar figure for an awesome series. I also did a more detailed photoshoot and review at my blog here: http://fruitjuicy.wordpress.com/2008/08/30/gathering-bubba-princess-tutu-figure-review/ Thanks again! <3
After being very pleased with my Gathering Gwendolyn purchase I decided to go ahead and get Tutu. I was not disappointed. The paint job is fantastic. I'm impressed with how close she looks to the original. I love the melancholy elegance that this figure portrays and I E2046 got that feel spot on. I was a bit worried she might arrived damaged because I read other people's reviews about how the arm was broken because of poor postal service, but fortunately she was not harmed at all.
I got Tutu perfectly today to my birthday. She is so sweet, great work, everything is fine. Thanks again.
Tutu has finally arrived! ^0^/ She′s soooo gorgeous, I really love her! Her face, her eyes, her pose, everything is magnificent though her left arm and one of the wings were broken. I could fix both myself because they weren′t that badly damaged, however, it′s the second time that my purchased figure was only packaged in bubble wrap and paper (no additional box for protection included), so I was wondering if this has to be that way. Nonetheless, I′m very pleased with the cute Tutu because she really is an eyecatcher. The paint job, the base, everything is perfect. Thank you very much for offering her, she′s a great kit.
My order arrived this Friday safely packaged in bubble wrap within a black box at my house. Princess Tutu is my first Gathering purchase and all I can say is: Nothing to regret here Smile ! She is stunning, fabulous, breath-taking ! I was so happy when I saw that this garage kit was chosen for Gathering that I just had to have her ! Such a lovely sculpt in combination with the wonderful splendid paintjob you guys have done...impressive, to say the least. I have to agree that she indeed does look almost like the original version painted by Bubba. However, there is one little part I am not quite happy with. It's the underskirt of the tutu. Gathering's version of Princess Tutu has the underskirt painted in opaque white with soft lilac shadings. While this version doesn't look bad either, I wish Gathering would have painted the underskirt in the same semi-transparent pink as Bubba did. But other than that, I consider this work PERFECTION Applause ! Tutu arrived with her arms broken off from the shoulders, however, it was no big deal to glue them back on. Other than that, the figure did take no damage during shipping which was due to the great packaging Smile. Overall, I am very happy and pleased with my first Gathering purchase. I hope I'll have the pleasure to see one of my favorite characters or kits becoming a Gathering choice once again
I was mesmerized by it. I love to paintig, and the fittings on it. Thank you so much this grate kit. Regards Seti
I picked up my delivery this morning and was immediately impressed with the packaging. The Gathering box itself was very well protected with bubble wrap. This is my first Gathering purchase and the actual figure box was excellent and very well thought out. Despite the figure being so carefully packed and having no visible damage from the outside of the package, it arrived broken at the waist and the left arm and the left arm's bracelet and and underskirt had both broken free as well. Because of the thoughtfully designed foam packing the loose pieces didn't have room to scratch much. It appears that none of the joints that broke were pinned. Had they been pinned I'd imagine they would have survived the trip without any issues. Thankfully I can address this myself since I happened to have some brass rod ready for when I start my first garage kit myself. The figure itself is gorgeously finished and a joy to look at. There are a couple of minor gaps in a less visible area of her hair line and the top of one leg but are pretty minor compared to the beauty of this figure. The only major difference I noted between the various photos of this figure and mine was that the clear underskirt piece of my figure appears to have been painted opaque white with subtle purple highlights rather than the more impressive semi-transparent frosted lavender color of other examples. The real eyelashes were a very nice touch however. Despite her traveling woes I absolutely love this figure. I'll be happy as a clam once I get her put back together again.
I had to wait positively... days for this to arrive; I could not get it fast enough. From the pictures alone I was very excited, but opening it I was even more-so. The sculpt is positively gorgeous. Tutu looks quite sad, which I had not realised from the photos; this makes the sculpt a level better than I had expected. The paint job is of the high standard I expect of Gathering too. I am especially impressed by the eyes, which are an important focal point for this particular figure. They have done a remarkable job! I was surprised to find a gap between the leg parts, as I would not expect Gathering to make such simple errors, but it is only noticeable if you are looking at it, and the way I have displayed the figure makes it a complete non-issue for me. My only real criticism was with the plastic(?) parts. I was completely lost on how to attach the ones at the back. None of the photos make it clear which is which nor where any of them go. In the end, it took me a good 20 minutes to get all five into place, as I had to try just about every combination before I got it right, and I kept knocking out the ones I had already placed. It would be nice if there were some photos or a diagram in the gallery that made it clear exactly where each of these five pieces go. Beyond this relatively minor point, however, I am quite satisfied with another great Gathering product. PS I noticed on the base that this was a BUBBA sculpt. I also have the bunny girl Haruhi and sci-fi costume Nagato (Gathering releases) that were sculpted by him. This makes the three best items in my collection all by the same guy. I think that tells me something! Can anyone tell me if there are any other BUBBA works in the Gathering catalogue?
