Haven’t seen figure news from Lilics Art Storm for awhile. They used to have new figure bi-monthly. It seems to me that they’re slowing down on figures now. Oh well, anyway, here is a new figure from Lilics Art Storm, here comes Minky Momo! But there are two big things that I hate about this figure.

First, she is not made of PVC, she is made for soft vinyl! Well techincally soft vinyl a kind of PVC too. But it’s not the same in the figure world. Just think about the rubber duck that you used to play in bath when you were a child and you know what I mean. they’re also cheaper to manufacture than PVC. But they’re also softer and has less detail then PVC, it’s not a good thing for figure.

Second thing I hate about this figure is her clothes! What the heck about the real-cloth-on-figure these days espeically a small 200mm tall figure like this one? =/

——Description from Manufacturer——

A glittering shot to a beating heart!

From the magical girl anime broadcast in 1982, ‘Magical Princess Minky Momo’ comes a figure of the main character, Momo! She has been sculped with the use of various materials, including soft vinyl, PVC and ABS. Also, her clothes and boots are made from real cloth material, giving her a little boost of extra cuteness.

She is holding the ‘Minky Stick’ in her hand, and her pendant adorns her neck. The neck and arms are also posable, allowing you to recreate a variety of scenes, including her adorable transformation scene!
