I finally decided to get something that has been on my wishlist for a while: the Hatsune Miku Project Diva Arcade Future Tone SPM Pierretta figure! Quite a long name...
SPM figures usually go for around $20-$25, but this particular seems to be more popular than I thought, going for about $30-$50. Even so, I managed to snag her for $25 plus shipping from a store I've never bought from before. Buying figures from new stores is always a gamble, but it's a gamble I'm willing to take!
Anyways, let's start with the packaging! As this was the first time I've ordered from GalacticToys, I wasn't sure what to expect with the packaging. So when I received the package and saw that the box was dented, I was filled with a bit of dread.
Ok... Not too bad I guess. Don't know what they were thinking, wrapping the figure box in the loosest bubblewrap possible. Though I won't judge too harshly; it may have come undone in the shipping process. Always make sure to secure the bubblewrap folks!
Let's look at the box!
This has got to be one of the most perfect boxes I've ever received. By that, I mean that there are no dents or imperfections anywhere. Quite surprising to see, considering how the box was packaged!
The box is really nice! I like the carnival-like feel it has to it! The left side features the in-game Pierretta module, which I think adds a nice touch to the box.
Opening the box shows that she doesn't come in a blister, which I hate. Miku is also in pieces.
She was a bit difficult to put together. Her upper body would just not go into her lower body. -_- Here she is, put together!
She's so cute! The pose, the clothes, the colors... Overall a fantastic Miku module! What I love about SPM figures is that they're quite cheap, yet contain the details a scale figure would! They're also quite big as well! This figure is no exception! Her base is quite nice as well. It fits her theme quite well!
One thing that I noticed while putting her together are these weird clear stains and small scratches. Here is one of the clear stains, shown in her bangs.
These errors aren't very noticeable if you're not looking closely, but they're still there. It's not much of a bother to me, but I do like my figures to be defectless.
Overall, she's another well done SPM figure! I'll be ordering more spm figures in the future! I put her next to my Ribbon Girl SPM figure.
