In which another figure in this series simply thrills me.
When I wrote about some SSS Rem and Ram figures a while back, I was all smiles, and it continues as I pick up my favorite of those I’ve seen so far — the FuRyu SSS Milky Way Rem!
I’m about as weak to space-themed goods as I am to majokko goods, so I liked this one from the very start. Just as the box really shines showing Rem from a variety of different angles, a huge strength of this figure is that it looks great all around.
I got her for about ten dollars used on amiami, and while she’s officially “used,” the figure was actually new in package, with the box only having slight corner damage. I just can’t turn these SSS figures down at these prices…
I’m just delighted with her little hat, too. And her barrettes. In the close-up below, you can see the type of little paint flaws you expect in a prize figure (on the part of her bangs between her eyes and the detail work on the pink barrette), and honestly I just don’t care — it doesn’t detract from her cuteness at all.
And as with so many similar figures, I feel like this does a good job of capturing Rem’s personality through her pose, expression, and clothing choices. Rem looks genuinely pretty and, I suppose, pretty sexy if you’re into that sort of thing (I prefer to think of her as a tiny marshmallow cuddle bug, but I respect all views), without anything being exploitative or sleazy. I just adore the bloomers, too. And while the stands are the least impressive part of most prize figures, I do think the addition of the star is very nice.
The figure is full of delightful details and choices for the outfit; I took the below picture mostly because I like the gathering and belt at her waist.
If my entire entry of pro-Milky-Way-Rem propaganda makes you want one of these beauties, the price I got isn’t atypical at all. Amiami didn’t have one when I did a quick look just now, but I found her by checking back here and there over a week or two. I’ve got nothing more to say other than I love this one — Rem here is just a bug bright ray of starshine!
