Momiji's box is the standard from Griffon. One trait that I like from Griffon is that their boxes are pretty small. It takes up less room and saves me money on shipping. Some people like huge, extravagant boxes, but I only consider that as a bonus to the figure itself.
Front & Back
Momiji's expression isn't the super adorable one that she's portrayed with in most fanart. Judging by her expression, she obviously takes her job patrolling the Youkai Mountain very seriously. But who can find her threatening after taking a glance at her fluffy ears!
Momiji has a reasonable bust that doesn't distract from her other features, like her armpits! How delicious!
What a fluffy tail! I did like that the maple leaf patterns on her skirt ended up slightly different from the official pictures. The official pictures showed a strange border around the leafs making them look like stickers.
Momiji's sword and maple leaf shield. The shield has a nice glossy shine on it. The sword itself is actually made up of two parts, the handle and blade. The blade is already placed in Momiji's right hand so you can't take it off. However, you can slide it up and down to your liking. Putting the blade into the handle is a very straight forward task and the peg had no trouble fitting in.
A Tengu isn't complete without a silly hat and high heels.
Close up shot of her face.
The usual nameplate.
Unfortunately, Griffon Enterprises is infamous for their QUALITY. Momiji is no exception and is mainly suffering from sloppy paintwork in a few areas. If you couldn't notice it in the previous pictures, these two show the them a bit more clearly. The transition from red and black is rough and sloppy in the left picture. In the right, you will notice small specs of red pain in Momiji's white hair.
But enough about that. I'm sure you're all wondering by now. Is she wearing bloomers or panties? Well, here comes the picture that answers it all!
Overall, I'm still happy with my figure on Momiji despite Griffon's QUALITY. I would be happier if it was around the 5500 yen price range, but a 6600 yen price tag isn't that bad either. I'm willing to pay a premium if it means having a figure of a character I like.
Now that I have a figure of Momiji, Figure Mountain's defenses have skyrocketed to impenetrable levels! How does one defeat the adorable and serious Momiji?
