Matsuno Ichimatsu & ESP Nyanko - Memo Stand - Review

MikadocolorsMikadocolors4 месяца назадReview
Hi !
Today I've decided to make a review for this item : ITEM #419797. I wasn't sure I really want him at first but I've got him from HLJ during their sales and now, I'm pleased with this figure. He's super cute, plus it's a memo stand so it's useful ~

I'm sorry for the quality of the picture but it's raining currently so it's hard to take good pictures with that kind of light.

ABOUT THE CHARACTER :
View spoilerHide spoilerIchimatsu Matsuno is the fourth-born son of the Matsuno Family. He is the "lone wolf" of the Matsuno brothers. He has an affinity to cats and chooses to spend time with them instead of people. Because of this, his brothers see him as incapable of friendship, despite the truth that Ichimatsu is just not self-confident to befriend others.

Let's begin with the box ~

BOX - 7/10

The box is pretty simple. You can see the figure since it has a window. There is an other one on the top of the box and a little one on one of the side. It's a nice addition but not super useful (maybe because I don't understand japanese and I can't read what it's written on the box where you can see Ichimatsu's feet).

But I find it really cute. I love the dots purple (like Ichimatsu) and yellow (like ESP Nyanko).

And, as you can see on the last picture, there is an authenticity sticker on the back on the box.

This is all the items you can find i the box. The cushion which is the base, Ichimatsu and ESP Nyanko. I'll talk a bit about the base now and then I'll take a look at the figure ~

BASE - 8/10

The base is a simple cushion to complete the figure. It's quite nice with two shades of purple and the emblem of the Matsuno's brothers.

I think it's really cute and it's a nice addition to the figure. It can be display without but I prefer to put it with Ichimatsu, it's better in my opinion ~

Not a lot to say about it so now, let's take a look at Ichimatsu and ESP Nyanko !

As you can see it's pretty well done. There is not big flaws, just a little one on the apron but you don't see it clearly since it's on the side of the figure.

With the light it's hard to see but Ichimatsu has a nice smile. He looks pleased and happy. It's a nice expression !

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/600/Mikadocolors1498665700.jpeg
At first, ESP Nyanko didn't want to split up so I was really scared to break it ... But I tried again, forcing a bit more, and everything went well. Once you split up once, it become really easy to separate it after. So don't be afraid, it'll not break ! ~

So now, let's try with a message ~

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/600/Mikadocolors1498665702.jpeg

I decided to try with a big post-it to see if it didn't fall and as you can see it worked. It's quite stable. I tried to give a push on the side of my shelf and it didn't fall. But my shelf is quite stable so maybe it's not the best exemple.

I think this "memo stand" function is quite nice and useful. I really like the idea to use this figure for something. Since Ichimatsu is smiling, having note and looking at him will help me being motivated and happy.

Plus, you can use it as a paperweight if you really want. I have something else for that, so I'll leave it on his cushion as decoration and memo stand ~

I wasn't sure he woould be big enough to be useful but look at him, next to my Ichimatsu nendo ! He's quite big, so you don't need to worry about his height. He's not too tall but def' not too short... So yeah, it's perfect ! ~

I'm really happy with this purchase ! I don't regret it any second. So I hope, with this review, I helped you decided to buy him or not. If you love Ichimatsu, it's a must to get ~ ;)

I wish you a lovely day/evening and hope to see you soon for an other review ~

And thank you for your words ~

escape_rope (4 месяца назад) #22780968Thank you for doing this review! I've kept an eye on this fig ever since it was announced and I hope to get it some day ; v ;
I'm curious about the weight since it's a paperweight - is the fig heavy? I wanted to check the shipping cost on HLJ (forgot to do it earlier..) but it's sold out now.

Thank you ~ I hope you'll get it someday too ! I will keep my fingers crossed for you ;)
Sold out ? Already ? Woh, that was fast !

I find it a bit heavy but not really heavy. It's a bit like a nendo in my opinion ... But I checked on HLJ and it says 180g, while the link nendo, I bought with it, is 310g (but it's the whole nendo with all the accessories so...). I tried to find a figure with the same weight as Ichi so I choose Jyushi figma (170g) and it says 680yen for shipping to France ! ... Sorry, I need to look for your location ! ...So Finland ? ... It's the same ! Hope it helps you ! =)

secretly-otaku (4 месяца назад) #22778867I like the note you wrote to test your stand :).
Thanks ! I can't get the credit from this quote, but if you're curious, I found it while watching SKAM. It's from the second season of the serie. I forgot where it comes from ... But when I saw it, I felt in love ~

solluxcaptor (4 месяца назад) #22772892Nice review! I wasn't sure about getting this one because it was a memo stand, but it looks nice enough displayed without a note too and having a practical use isn't a bad thing. I really like Ichimatsu, ESP Nyanko and cats so I think I'll pick it up if I see at a good price! :D
Thanks ~
It was the same reason I was hesitating, but then I saw a sale and decided to try it. I'm def' not disappointed since it works pretty well without a note ! And sometimes, it's not that bad to have a nice memo stand ~
So if you find it at a decent price, go for it, I'm sure you'll like it too =)

calias (4 месяца назад) #22775796Thanks for reviewing this and taking lots of pictures from different angles! I was curious about how the memo stand part of this would come out as well as the quality of the pillow. It's a perfect size too.
This was one I was on the fence about, but your review definitely helps. I might add this one or the Sanrio version to my next order.

I'm glad you like my review ! Since I was hesitating to buy it at first and now I love it, I wanted to try to get a lot of pictures to help people see this figure a bit better. It works pretty well, even without a note. So I'm glad I had the chance to get it. The Sanrio version is cute too, I like the cushion ! But I wanted ESP Nyanko more than Nya (I think it's the name of the Sanrio's mascot) so I went for the standard one ~

maggie (4 месяца назад) #22778467I didn't even know this existed! I'm such a sucker for stationary anime items, as I actually use them on my desk and regularly need something to hold my notes and memos in.
I'm a bit difficult when it comes to stationary anime items. But I really like the idea. It's cute and useful, so it's perfect ~ And this one is def' good because it can work as a standard figure and be a memo stand too ~
