Elwing by Max Factory

  1. “Positive defect.” LOL.

    This is my favorite of the three you’ve showcased. I love the leaf bikini motif and she looks like she has the most consistent coloring of the bunch. I like her face too – the hint of blush is really a nice effect.

    It’s a shame that Ryuna can’t be had at a decent price though. She looks like she would’ve been the best of the bunch.

    1. I think Elwing would have remained my favourite but I do hate having an incomplete set. It’s annoying to have 75% of something! I would hate to have 75% of a car for example. Perhaps it works, and looks great, but it’s missing wheels, pretty useless that way.

      ❤ Positive defects. I doubt I'll get many, or even any more beyond this one, but I think it worked well.

      1. Not sure if you’re still interested. But it looks like someone’s posted Ryuna up on ebay. It’s an auction though, and it may be over by the time you read this message. Hopefully not though. It’s much better than the 160 retail you mentioned. :/

        Good luck. I’m not going for it. Just thought I’d help you out. I know what it feels like to own 75% of something. It doesn’t feel good.

      2. Thanks for the heads up BakaMan, I’ll keep an eye on that auction.

        I think I’m mostly over owning all 4 of these figures now that there are more Shining Wind swimsuit figures being released, but it doesn’t hurt to try and finish up a set.

      3. Hmm. Yeah. After a while one usually loses interest, or at least, the interest isn’t as strong as it used to be.
        At any rate, I’m freaking obsessed over Clalaclan in her swimsuit.
        I don’t try to complete sets, but just go for the stuff I like.
        And well, I took one good look at Clalaclan, then I looked at my wallet, and started crying lol.
        At any rate, I love your site. I’ll be visiting it whenever I have time.

      4. Clalaclan is the only figure from the new set I refuse to buy. My dislike for breasts larger than heads outweighs my need for completion.

        Thanks for the compliments! Look forward to future comments!

        PS: My wallet is always crying.

      5. Haha. I just like pretty girls. There isn’t any better way to explain it. And of course, everyone has different tastes and different perception of their own pretty girl.
        I took one look at Clalaclan and I said “Hot damn. I… MUST… HAVE HER!”
        Large breasts aside, I think she has a cute pose and a cute face. Not quite so interested in the others. Though, maybe Xecty.

  2. Easy to remove? Damn I suck, it took me nearly 8 months before I finally got around to figuring out how to remove the skirt. She is displayed with it off for me.

    Nice figure indeed, both Elwing and Blanc Neige stand out amongst the 4, though I never did get Mao or Ryuna (not interested in either, but I have Kotobukiya’s Mao from Shining Wind).

    1. lol I remember receiving a figure or two without knowing they were cast-off or if they were how to cast them off. But 8 months is a long time! I display mine with the skirt on, I think it makes her seem a bit more refined then the other 2.

      Kotobukiya’s Mao is quite nice, though her clothes look to be a size or two too small on her, which isn’t all together a bad thing…
