Dead Master -Original Version- Review


 So, I'm awakened today by a door bell. I go to open the door and see a package at my feet with nobody in sight (do they deliver those things and then teleport or something? There wasn't a van or anything anywhere). I see SAL on it saying Plastic Figurine ¥7,280 and I knew exactly what it as. I guess my figure came before Amiami got to respond on whether or not it was shipped. So I get the package and place it on a chair in the living room while I go to get my camera. I come back and
Get down there, you don't belong on the box, that's just silly.

So I gave him a treat to get off the box.
Glorious.
I was surprised the box didn't even have bubble wrap, and the figure box fits perfectly in. No noticeable box damage though, but the box is freaking huge.

The box was sealed with 3 strips of tape, which I find annoying because I risk ruining the box if I peel them off. So I take a pair of c and try to work under the tape without damaging the box, and then slowly peel away using the tweezers. It's a really nice method, and if the tape is too stuck to the box (like the first strip) you could always use the tweezers to swipe the tape in a clean cut. Mine are sharp enough to cut tape but won't leave a mark on cardboard unless I pressed hard.

Such a large box, and most of it is filler space. Well, at least her accessories are under like 3 sheets of plastic to try to save space.

She comes with her chain (kinky) a scythe (even more kinky) and a skull with alternate thumb to hold it in her hand. The chain looks a lot like the one that came with Black Rock Shooter's Figma, but I believe Dead Master has a thicker chain. I didn't compare the two, didn't seem too important. The chain is my least favorite accessory anyway, but I might find some creative use for it.

Hey Reimu, look what I stol- er, found! Da ze~
Scythe can make a nice accessory for my other figures! Or maybe just another piece of not-so-useless junk for Marisa to throw in her pile. I really like the craftsmanship on her scythe, it's really nice. The texture of it is good, it has a nice feel to it.
The stand is beautiful. I really like the look it has to it, think it's creative too. As you can probably tell, it's heavy. This is probably the piece that contributes the most to expensive shipping on this thing! But it looks really cool. It really adds to the overall atmosphere of the figure. there was one slight annoyance I had though, but I do understand why this was done.


Her wings are seperate. Not too much of a bother, but they're kinda hard to fit in, and because they feel delicate (look at how thin they are!) they feel like they'll snap if you force them in. Anyone that's getting this figure should take caution when placing her wings into her back. Take your time if you have to, really. I have small hands so it was easier for me, because I could fit my fingers between hard to reach places and get a better grip on the base of her wings. When they're in, they fit snugly and don't feel like they're going anywhere, so don't worry too much about them falling out when you move her around.

She's a bit taller than my Sega Miku, but she's cheating with that huge base of hers and her horns.
Dem eyes
 I really like her pose, and she has lots of delicate little details. Her drills in particular looks really nice. And just look at her cute stance!

Dat ribbon~

Overall, a great figure. Bit on the expensive side, but it has really nice craftsmanship to it. The pint job is nice, I love how they captured the eyes from Huke's illustrations so vibrantly, and the skull is also a great touch. My little brother thought it was cool and wanted me to put her next to his Halo Reach figure set for a picture, but I'll probably do that later. 

I'm still thinking of a place to put her in my room. Might place her next to my Sega Miku she was posing with easier, or maybe I'll put her on my computer table, but then she'd take Black Rock Shooter and Metagross' spot. Oh well, I'll place her around a bit until I find somewhere fitting.

I like the fingers and the details, it looks nice. I never really got into BRS beyond the miku PV.

>My little brother thought it was cool and wanted me to put her next to his Halo Reach figure set

I never understood this mindset.

The scythe looks very nice.

What a great looking figure. When I first saw the base I thought it was real stone.

>And just look at her cute stance!

I want her but my wallet won't allow it. ;_;

My dog gets super excited when I get a package too. I usually set it on the floor for awhile until he gets bored of it.

I probably would have ordered that DM if I didn't order the animation version. Dem drills.

I would be paranoid of not hearing the doorbell and having my package stolen.

Lol! That's so adorable!!

The scythe and stand look absolutely fantastic! Enjoy.

I like how you go through the unboxing process as well.

>I'm still thinking of a place to put her in my room

I'd place her next to Black Rock Shooter myself.

I know that feel.

Every time. The doorbell gets him excited, but if I come back with a package he has to sniff it and sometimes bark at it for a bit before he finds it safe to leave alone.

>I would be paranoid of not hearing the doorbell and having my package stolen.

I kinda fear this too. A package this expensive should definitely get a signature, but I think it's just one of the disadvantages of using the cheapest SAL option.

>I like how you go through the unboxing process as well.

Thanks. And I was thinking of putting her next to Black Rock, but I like Black Rock sitting on my Metagross.

This is a figure that caught my eye same goes for the black rock shooter, from the figure threads in jaypee.

Over here they just leave your packages down town and you'll get a paper so you can pick it up. It's bothersome to go there every time, but probably better than having the neigbour kids playing football with it in the stairwell.
