So after craving for Eustass Kid figure for 7 months, I finally have the guts to buy it. Yes, guts. Because this figure is pretty expensive and the shipping is no joke either.
I stalked all the online anime websites for the cheapest price. Finally, I got one that is quite decent.
The retail price for this figure is 12 000 yen which is about $125. And since this figure is more than 2kg, they insisted on shipping on EMS (all stores insist) which is $56 shipping fee. So it would have cost me $175 for one figure. Anyhow, I did some research and got it for 6 000yen and 5400 yen = 11 400 ($118). No regret whatsoever.
Boy, my shelf is completely full now. Before my anime figurine obsession, it was empty. Anyway, Eustass Kid is quite tall for a figure (with the arm is 38cm) and about 2kg.
He comes with 2 interchangeable heads and 2 torsos. The coat and the knife-holder-belt are removable. You only have 1 left arm that is detachable. Above, you have one torso fixed with the gigantic arm. Below is another torso with the regular arm. You can have 4 different combinations with the 2 heads and 2 torso. Personally, I prefer the one above. He looks so much more sinister that way.
Strangely enough, he looks different when seen from different angle. It's pretty wicked. But check out those amazing details. My favorite is still his coat. It is one of the heaviest parts of the figurine, the other being the giant arm. I like to keep his coat on because he kinda looks weird topless. I mean the abs is sexy to look at but Eustass Kid in the manga/anime has his coat on, so damn this figure aint gonna stay topless. In all seriously, his abs is pretty a piece of work -- said the shameless fangirl.
Here is the arm under normal lighting. I think Eustass kid look simply gorgeous 2 years before the time skip. Anyway, maybe they will release a 2 years after figurine later on.
The details are incredible. The material is quite solid. So far, nothing seemed to chip off. He can take up quite some space on your shelf. So clean away some junk because this pirate 'king' needs to show off his awesomeness.
And that's my favorite head. He looks so evil. Kyaaa~
I definitely don't regret buying Eustass Kid. He is currently the most expensive figure in my collection. But hey, it's totally worthy for the amount of details and interchangeable parts that come with it.
I look forward for more awesome POP figurines. They are just so precious to look at.
