Flame Effect by Bandai
Very excited and a little annoyed at this. I had this guy ordered from HLJ as well as figuarts Nobita and was patiently awaiting the release of the super sexy Matoi Ruko from Kill La Kill. However, the best laid plans of mice and men and all that, the flame effect was getting close to it’s 60 day limit. I thought that ordering something would renew the 60 day on everything in the private warehouse, but apparently this is not the case. Oh well. So I cancelled Ryuko (boo) and shipped Nobita and Flame effect. Then I ordered Ryuko off of Amazon (yay). The flame effect arrived this morning. Much excitement was in my eyes. I had to open t up right away.
Does it live up to expectations?
I am pleased to say that it does! Huzzah!
When I opened the box, I got a pleasent surprise as the flame box dwarfed Nobita’s. Excellent.
The tall one and the one on the far right below even have an articulated joint so you can adjust the pose, or remove the piece completely.
Not too bad considering how those pictures are only two of the pieces. It also comes with large single piece and four smaller ones and they look good too. The smaller ones can be attached to the larger ones for even MORE flamey goodness, or since they have little loop bits, the can be attached to the limbs of figures. Oooh hoohooo hoohooooooo!
Combine them both…
Then I foolishly packed away Ryuko and forgot to test out the flaming limb idea. So since I still had Nobita-kun and Wheeljack was just standing around looking sexy, I put them to work.
Sadly though (or is it?) the best shot I got was with my phone camera and was one I loaded up to instagram.
Came out a lot better than I thought it would. Woooo.
