Now this really isn't going to be a review. It's more of a hey I got a really neat thing, look at all the pictures! But if you want more of a review type thing go check out her post about her Shiny Dick. Also I should probably explain that. See Kotobukiya is such a pain to try and figure out how to say that we just call the statues Shiny _______. So Nightwing is Shiny Dick, Green Arrow is Shiny Ollie, Robin is Shiny Dami and so on and so on. By the way don't go look at the Shiny Dami statue it's too cute for words! Okay and yeah, there is one more reason we call him Shiny Dick. I'm like a twelve year old......and it makes me giggle. Not sorry.
Now that we've got all that out of the way, let's get to the pictures!
We, of course have, to start with the box:
It's such a pretty box! Clear on two sides.
The top clear with Nightwing, DC Comics and Kotobukiya logo/emblems.
|oh so professional set up for pictures|
He was super easy to get out. The top has a tab, you pull that and open the lid.
And he was in a plastic bag with just his head and arm exposed.
And here he is all out of the packaging:
One of the coolest parts I think is that one of his hands has a little hole to hold it:
He's just so detailed. I mean look at all this different texture:
His open hand is just amazing:
I especially love the webbing between his thumb and his pointer finger:
His legs are equally awesome:
He's even got little patches on the backs of his knees:
I also really like how he attaches to the base. Magnets in his feet!
My Shiny Dick has a few minor paint defects above his mask but otherwise the paint job is kick butt!
And can we talk about this hair for a minute?!
Even though he has no articulation he's really fun to take pictures of.
Jason is a little jealous of all this awesome I think:
I mean even mini Red Hood is like really?
Sorry boys. You're still my favorite Robin but Shiny Dick is here to stay!
I hope you enjoyed this not!review of Kotobukiya Nightwing. There will probably be more of these in my future. Not going to lie. Till next time!
