Figure Review: Hijikata Toshirou – MegaHouse

Posted in anime, figures, I like hot dudes, MegaHouse, review with tags , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by ampzr

Today in the mail I received Hijikata Toshirou from Gintama. He’s from the GEM series by MegaHouse which also includes Sakata Gintoki and soon Okita Sougo.

I have to say this figure is spectacular. The details are great. Especially on the sword handle. I’m not sure what kind of paint is used but it has a very nice effect that gives some great shadows and highlights. Hijikata comes with few accessories which include a mayonnaise bottle and a mayonnaise bottle that is being squeezed out onto a bow of rice. The bowl even has it’s own stand which I find rather cute.

One thing to watch out for is that the plastic used to make the mayonnaise stream is a flexible plastic. If care is not taken I could see it breaking.

If you like Gintama then I recommend this figure for you. Even if you like to own male figures I recommend this figure for you. He’s still available for purchase on many figure sites. Including beNippon: Toushiro Hijikata.

Also if anyone has any idea of what is going on on that flap I’d be very grateful. I want golden mayonnaise…
