Griffon Enterprises’ current bad reputation is not new to us figure collectors. A lot of collectors are avoiding them due to poor execution and quality of their past figure releases. They’re also kinda hit and miss. Some of their released figures are good, and some of them are really bad. The worst part here is sometimes, those figures look really good in their official prototype images but sucks when you actually received the item – which kinda makes it a very risky move to preorder any figures from Griffon nowadays.
But I’ll be honest that this 1/8th scale figure of Tokisaki Kurumi from the anime series Date A Live looks good – specially her outfit. But because of those factors I mentioned above, it really makes it hard for me to even hit the preorder button > < I guess I’ll just have to wait for this figure to arrive on December 2013. Currently priced at ¥11,400.
