As shown in the unboxing post, I finally got Nendoroid Youmu Konpaku in the mail. At first, I ordered her because I wanted to complete my Ghost Duo (other nendo is Yuyuko Saigyouji) but after a while, I came to fall in love with Youmu and she became my favourite Touhou character. I couldn’t wait for her to arrive.
I find these photos aren’t as good as the fast review, but I may be wrong. Hopefully Yuyuko’s end up amazing.
So let’s show her and a part of her box…
Youmu comes with a load of parts:
-8+ hands (I forget how many)
-1 Myon-chan (The ghost, in this case, will also be Myon-chan)
-Stickers for a pissed-off expression
Though lacking extra legs, which isn’t a big deal in my opinion, I believe GSC did a great job handling with the accessories.
Accessories get 10/10.
Myon-chan is connect from the top
Now onto posability. Because of her 6 shoulder pieces and many arms, Youmu can do alot of amazing poses. Her stand is also beautiful, despite it not being a super movable stand. I had some trouble with the stand due to the weight, but it fixed itself after a while. She also lost some marks for it, but it’s no longer a problem. so she gets 10/10 for posability.
And she reaches for her sword….
What is that thing next to her? It’s a candle.
Anyway, before I forget, the box came in excellent condition with bubble wrap and Japanese flyers. Nice touch JList!
Shipping gets 10/10.
Onto the paint. There are so many small details that it’s amazing. Roukanken has it’s flowers on the handle. I’m amazed. Paint gets 10/10.
Here is her angry face, along with Roukanken.
Let’s talk about sculpt. The details on her skirt are done wonderfully, and her headband is super kawaii…. (I hate myself).
One small problem I have, which isn’t big, it that you can see a seam in her hair, but besides that, she’s perfect.
Sculpt gets 9.8/10.
Love this pose SO much.
Love this pose too.
When it comes to playability, Youmu wins it all. The small fact that she can’t be lifted off the ground doesn’t really bother me, but besides that, everything is perfect. SHE HAS 5 SWORDS MAN!
Playability obviously gets a strong 10/10.
In conclusion, Nendoroid Youmu Konpaku is a definite get for any Touhou fan or anyone considering starting Touhou. I bought her even before I was a Touhou fan and I don’t regret it at all. ^^
So, her final score is….. 59.8/60 (holy shit) or 99.7%… She rounds to 100%…
Was I too soft? She beat Dead Master by 2% and Rider by 4%.
Till next time?
