Nah. Not that it really matters much.
Anyways, Figma Homuhomu, ordered from HLJ.
Fancy picture for this time, just the usual Ott-lite abuse with filtering. I should try to make a better background next time, maybe.
Box. Pretty normal box. But! Max Factory might finally be learning how to pack figures more efficiently, as Homura’s box actually features a tray for a few of her accessories that’s underneath the main plastic tray! I hope they stick with this, instead of using that stupid larger box just so all of the accessories can be visible up front.
Accessories. Six right hands – trigger finger, fist, splayed, bazooka-cusping, holding things, and a hand for holding the pipe bomb. Only four left hands – fist, splayed, bazooka-cusping, and holding things. Other stuff is three total faces, a secondary back hair piece, pair of glasses, golf club, bazooka, pipe bomb, pistol, alternate left forearm with the time-shield thing, and an adapter peg for the stand.
Default face and attempting the hair brush pose, but not doing so well. The inclusion of an arm without the time doodad confused me at first, but then they revealed the WonFes Schoolgirl Homura, which will have accessories to make Epilogue Homura, when she no longer had the shield. The shield itself is on a peg that’s not glued in, so it can be spun around and taken off.
The quality of the paint job on Homura isn’t the best, but since her outfit is at least a bit plain it doesn’t stand out so much. Kinda annoying that a lot of the Figmas lately have paint jobs that aren’t nearly as nice as they were on older ones. I remember when you didn’t have to worry about getting a figure that didn’t look as good as the promo pics…
The angry face and throwing the pipe bomb. I’m actually using one of the bazooka hands there, since I wasn’t smart enough to realize the one hand was for holding the pipe bomb.
The Moemura face, and wearing the glasses! Also using the pistol, which I think was supposed to be a Desert Eagle or whatever, but I don’t remember.
The glasses go on by fitting into some slots that are on the back of each of Homura’s faces. Unfortunately, that also means pretty much no other Figmas are going to be able to use them. Sometimes I wonder if I should get this thing.
The bazooka, which is also a pain in the ass. Homura doesn’t have any way to actually hold the thing, so you have to basically balance it somewhere and rely on friction. While the handle can be held by a holding-things hand, actually using that means Homura can’t point it in front of her or probably rest it on her shoulder, since the arms simply can’t move that far. I’m not sure how they managed to pull off the picture that’s on the box, unless they were using sticky-tack or something.
Homura’s last weapon is the golf club. Was trying to do a golf swing pose, but not much luck.
Perhaps the most important accessory Homura has is her Moemura hair. Before her accessories were originally revealed, I figured Max Factory would leave Homura parts for a schoolgirl version, but I was pleasantly wrong. It works the same way as other Figmas with more than one head/hair piece, just pull the head off and stick the other one on and move the face and bangs over. Though since this Homura only has one bangs piece, you can’t have multiple Homuras. The Moemura hair also lets Homura move her head around a bit more than the normal hair does.
The ends of her braids are like meat hooks, though. You can hang trophies from them!
Back shots with both hair pieces. The normal one uses the same two-joint split design that Black Gold Saw and KOS-MOS used.
Aside from the paint, my Homura unfortunately has one particular flaw, that being the peg for the faces not being set all the way in on the normal hair piece. It’s not causing too much of a problem, but it is making Homura’s faces point downwards a bit more than they should. Not sure if I’ll be able to fix it, my attempts to dislodge the peg so far have only threatened to break the peg itself.
Homura’s got some pretty good range at the hips. The skirt is soft plastic, which helps. I’m also going to go ahead and mention here that some of my right hand wrists are annoying loose in the peg holes. I tried to tighten one, but since it now has to be forced into the hole, I might just make it worse…
No ranged weapons, glasses on, time magic users only, FINAL DESTINATION.
“I’ll just get Madoka to drink some of this, and then…!”
This is obligatory. Madoka’s poofy skirt actually made it a bit tough.
And then I took another picture from another angle just for the hell of it.
Prototype for the nice picture. But then I looked at it and said, “HamsterCorp, that is not a pose that makes sense for someone shooting a sniper rifle.”
Whelp, Homura found some of Madoka’s panties.
