OOO YAY… Figma Lum’s here! I’m really2 happy to get a hold her with no regret at all, despite being rare by now I got her with a reasonable prices even for a MISB one. Well, currently the price for this one are insanely expensive, especially in ebay & amazon. She’s from the huge hit manga “Urusei Yatsura”, Lum is the alien daughter of an powerful space warlord, and more specifically she’s an Oni. In ancient Japanese mythology, oni were evil ogre-like demons often depicted with horns and wearing tiger-striped loin cloths that were born of mankind’s negative karma. Lum’s race is an alien version of the same demons (Or perhaps she’s a product of Ataru’s bad karma). Yup, I think her informations are quite explaining enough, from the box itself you can tell that she is sealed with a blue colored box. The series number is 063, & she is one of a standard release from Figma. Lum, apparently is the only character from Urusei Yatsura which to be made in Figma. Although her cousin’s Ten was included as one of her parts… Now, Lum has fairly amount accessories we can use for her I think.
There, it’s consist to 2 extra face plate, Ten, Electric Lightning FX, Stand Set with extra joint for Ten, & interchangeable hand parts with extra 1 single hand for her FX parts.
Lum appeared to have a cyan-ish colored hair with horns much like Oni supposed to be. She’s wearing a tiger-striped bikini & long boots. Well, I think that’s all how she looks… This figure is made from painted ABS(Acrylonitrile Butadine Styrene), PVC(Polyvinyl Chloride), POM(Particulate Organic Matter), & PP(Polypropylene). The articulations & substance are exactly like her other fellow figma, using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out various scenes. A flexible plastic is used for posable areas, allowing proportions to be kept, without compromising posability. Well, eventhough Lum is wearing bikini, she actually has a limited movement of her thigh joint.
Criminy… She is surely looked innocent, feminine, charming, & daring. Her face plates are standard face, a smiling face and an angry face are both included allowing for various situations. Mainly, she looks really faithful to her manga/anime counterpart, GSC does another fine work as usual. Her hair was made flowing, making her more perfect to make a various pose. Her lower bangs were made soft, so it’s kinda flexible enough to move her head freely…
DAMN… Absolutely, like she used to be looks in Manga/Anime… She’s full of sex-appeal, glamour, feminine, charm, and that undeniably gorgeous body for a poseable action figure… Well, as you can see she’s only wearing her famous tiger-striped bikini & her long boots. I say just perfect, her body was sculpted pretty hot, however… Yes, all we don’t like the most is her joints that made her looked awkward, but what to do… The joints were used to make her movable. I don’t really mind whether she looked awkward, but I prefer her poseable rather than being still.
Yes2, lightning effect parts are included allowing you to recreate the famous scenes from the series. The sculpt was undeniably outstanding for a thunder shape, but I don’t really like it much since I prefer making her FX digitally. Of course because the FX feels lifeless to be seen, & whenever I wear the FX to her wrist, I feel like she’s wearing a bracelet rather than summoning the FX itself. Even the FX parts can be somehow odd to be look especially from side view… Honestly, for a photo editor like me, I don’t really need it… But it’s perfect for most collectors who likes to display her.
Her cousin, Ten-chan is also included, along with an additional stand attachment allowing him to fly side-by-side with Lum. Well, it’s a cute little thing, he really fits to be paired with her. But personally he looked more like her little brother rather than a cousin, since they exactly look alike. But, is it just me? His body feels a bit too small than his head….
A poseable 3 jointed figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken. Also we can attach Ten to her stand with an available extra little curvy piece of plastic that contains 2 little joints(1 for sticking the stand’s piece & the other one for attaching his hole joint), with this we can make him like he’s hovering in the air, exactly like in the show.
Lum’s hand parts from the attached to her box she got a pair of outstreched wide open palm, the extras are a pair of proximate outstretched palm, a pair of pointing finger parts, a pair of fistful hand parts, a pair of holding hand parts, & 1 single outstreched wide open palm that can’t be move up & down. The single hand was for lightning FX’s attachment. Holding hand parts doesn’t really necessary for her but can be useful to hold anything. & the fistful hand parts really suits to her angry face plate.
Yup, I think I’m through with more informations of her… Overall, I’m really2 contented to have her, despite having a gorgeous looking figure, I got this with a cheap price! Well, she became my 4th figma collections, & with her here, she can be very2 useful to make a custom figure. So far I don’t have any trouble on handling her, the joint parts really user friendly I must say….
Pros: MF & GSC never dissapoint me at all, they made her really superb! She’s looked pretty awesome for a poseable action figure, & she’s flexible enough to make a various scene. Moreover, she’s user friendly for me! She’s a worth to buy if you like Urusei Yatsura & poseable figure with hot looking body.
Cons: Lum has a limited movement of her thigh joint whenever I lift her legs. & one little thing is whenever I move her thighs, her underwear sometimes stuck inside her joint. But, that’s not really a big deal for me, it’s just me being careless.
