Senjougahara Hitagi 1/8 scale

Hello again everyone!

Today I’d like to review another figure from Bakemonogatari.
It’s Senjougahara Hitagi by Kotobukiya.

This figure measures about 22cm.

The figure looks lovely. Posing is great and the base too with a crab pincer. This is actually the first time I got a figure which base is the same as in the stock photos.

And like usual Kotobukiya screwed the figure to the base.

Although GSC and Alter definitely released higher quality figures of Hitagi, I like the face of this from Kotobukiya much better.

About the quality. It’s not poor, but far from GSC level.
Let’s see some details.IMG_0453 IMG_0455 IMG_2622 IMG_2625 IMG_0458 IMG_0461

Not bad so far. But the lines are not always even and there’s very little shading too.
Unfortunately the worst part is Hitagi’s hair. Some parts are just glued to the rest.

It’s not so visible, but both front and back of the figure should look good, don’t you think? Especially if you paid about 9k yen (incl shipping) for it. Maybe it’s not that much now, while 9k has become a standard price, but in 2010 it was quite high, comparable to Alter’s and other leading manufacturers’ pricing. I really like this figure, but its  quality is a little dissapointing.
Still, if you like it and find it for a good price (not that difficult now), you’ll definitely like it too 🙂

Greets!
