Hello MFC! It's my first artical on here so I'll try my best to make it a good read, here goes!

The first time I saw this wand was on the Movic homepage back in Feburary and I bounced around the idea of ordering it through a proxy for a day or so, finally deciding that it wasn't worth the extra cost. Low and behold Amiami put it up for preorder, though I was still on the fence.

What changed my mind was the release date. It's just a day before my birthday and it would make a great present to myself. I took the plunge and ordered it, putting everything but the shipping cost out of my mind.

Fast forward to Tuesday and I get the invoice from Amiami! One money transfer to cover the shipping (60 bucks!) and it was paid for and ready. It shipped out on the 18th and even though it was sent EMS I was under no delusion that it would get here before next week.

11:30 am today and I was woken up with a phone call, something had come in the mail for me. I went downstairs expecting a card for my birthday and instead I saw this:

Needless to say I freaked out.

After I calmed down I started unboxing and thought the people of MFC would like to see what was in that person sized box!

Here's the box with the Amiami card for scale:

Let's take a peek inside!

Trademark Amiami paper stuffing, though significantly more that usual. Fingers there for more scale. Time to go treasure hunting now.

Aaaand here it is, the prize we were looking for.

Here are the two boxes together for scale. There was a lot of extra space!

On the smaller box was this sticker, which I'm guessing is some sort of offical marking, though I'm not sure at all ;u;

Inside the small box was this plastic tube. It was pretty tall in it's own right and kinda flimsy.

Here's the lid of the tube, it's the usual CCS magic circle design printed on card stock.

The wand is packed with this blister on top and a similar one on the bottom

And here it is out of the box! Holding it in my hand made the shipping price so worth it. First here's the full size view! Sorry about the flash ;u;

It's lighter than I though but still feels solid in the hands. The colors are nice and vibrant.

Here's a close up of the topper, with phone to scale. The opalescent wings are very nicely done and the seams on that part are very minimal.

The red and pink plastic are very translucent and under the pink 'eyes' are mirror swatches. The reflection is really good though.

And finally here's the bottom, with phone for scale. The red plastic here is the same material as the top and it looks lovely. Sorry for the blurry quality, I was in a rush!

I'm 100% in love with this item, just having it makes the price more than worth it! I'm planning on building some hooks to hang it on the wall from, it doesn't take up as much space as I thought. I have no clue what I'm going to do with all this cardboard though....

Thank you for reading my first MFC artical, have a wonderful day!

Pleinair5 лет назад#3169460Hijacking, I have all the SM Proplicas and this wand, this Clow wand is very very light, being hollow all over, and the gold on all the items (Clow, proplicas)is very easy to scratch. They are all Beautiful, don't let anyone tell you otherwise, but the fact that this Clow wand has no electronics makes it seem...better. No seams or hidden ports for batteries, it is a solid piece that is Really nice! That being said the Moon Rod and Cutie wand coming with their own display stand was really cool too. I am still figuring out how to display the compact. The Clow wand...still in it's tube, looking really cool! But off to the side. I would say the Clow wand is a bit better because it has no need for buttons of lighting up, but other then that they are honestly about the same as far as I can tell!

Thank you :)

I am curious about the quality as compared to Sailor Moon proplica.

I tried to take the box to the recycling plant today and it wouldn't even fit in my car! I'm glad I was home to sign for it because there's no way I could have driven it home.

eiszeitshinigami5 лет назад#3087702O__O Dang that's huge. I have a feeling that Sakura's wand is much larger than Sailor Moon's Cutie Moon Rod proplica, and here I thought that was big.
It's really much bigger in person than I though. I'm about 5'3 and when I stand it next to me it almost comes up to my hips
