This is a fixed-pose resin-cast figure kit.
There is little to be said about this kit that can't be summed up in the words 'It's produced by Max Factory.' Max never produces anything less than perfection, and this stunning kit of Peorth, from the anime and manga series 'Aa! Megami-sama!' (Ah! My Goddess!), is an amazing feat of engineering.
The sculpt is terrific, Peorth about to toss one of her trademark roses. Her expression and pose are subtle but not static and the piece as a whole is very fluid.
The castings are -- what can I say other than 'perfect'? No less than sixty pieces come together to make up Peorth and her infamous outfit -- including sixteen individually-cast buckles (and five extras, in case you lose one. Or five.). Her bracelets are cast separately as well, something not often done with kits from this series. Very little excess resin, excellent fit, intelligent parts cut (for ease of painting), and like all Max Factory kits, a joy to work with.
There is a little extra work to do on this piece; some of the straps require minor drilling to allow the buckles to fit on the ends (this is outlined in the instructions), and you must provide the wire to make her earrings, as well as drill holes for the wire to fit. This kit is definitely recommended for experienced builders!
color photographs are included for painting guides. No base is included, but she'll definitely require one as she won't stand on her own.
