The review is a bit late, as I had trouble de-sweating the figures ^^
Today’s review is of the Konami J-mini D.Gray-Man box ENTRY #100339 , the box had a set of 10, where you could get any of the 6 characters (2 of them are actually the same character though), when I got the box, I got 5 doubles, so I’m missing one ITEM #5887
There are also boxes that come with special versions of Allen and Kanda, but those are completely different items (I need both as well, ITEM #4894 ITEM #4895 )

I’ll once again check each from my least favorite to my favorite.

First off, the things that all of them have in common.
The bases are a circular disk made of clear, black plastic and have a white outline on top, which is the Exorcist cross from the anime, and has a peg which go into the left foot of the character.
All the heads of the figures are on ball joints, so they have some range of poseability there, and the arms are on hinges so they have 360 degree rotation. The heads are separated into 3 sections (2 for Tyki Mikk due to his hairstyle) of the back of the head, the face and the bangs.
Most of the body parts of the figures are pegs which simply plug into each other (mostly at the head, waist and shoes {not Lenalee}), and all the figures have similarly sized pegs, so you can also mix n match parts for fun!
All of them have sweaty plastic syndrome, I’ve washed and soaked them with dishwashing liquid for several days now, and they still feel a bit off and look a bit dirty.

So, the least favorite character, Tyki Mikk ITEM #2782
He comes wearing a pretty nice set of formal(ish) wear (I really like his clothes).

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959149.jpeg
Overall, his sculpting is nice, but simple, but nothing too detailed, but there are some suble sculpting that is nice, the folds on the bottom of his pants and the back of his hair. The seam separating his head in 2 is super obvious and ugly and could probably been done better, and although the moulding seam lines aren’t obvious, there are a few of them on the pants and jacket.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959150.jpeg
The paint is simple and well done, maybe because the parts separate makes them easier to paint. The white paint around the neck is a bit transparent unfortunately and the ball joint is ‘skintone’ and doesn’t match his skin color. His face is painted nicely, with some lines around the eyes for the eyelids, but the mouth isn’t painted.

Second up, Kanda Yuu ITEM #4896
One of the 2 figures with an accessory, he is wearing his 1st uniform from the anime. His ponytail is also a separate piece that can turn.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959152.jpeg
His sculpting is pretty nice, and more detailed than Tyki, especially the tiny details all around his outfit and sword. Although his hair has a simpler sculpt than Tyki, the seam is placed a lot better and looks more natural. He has some nice details in his ears and subtle folds in the fabric of his clothes around the elbows and ‘skirt’ piece. His right foot doesn’t sit on the base properly, but Mugen fits nicely into his hand.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959153.jpeg
His painting is pretty nice, especially around all the small details, the biggest paint flaws are some paint bleeds on his shoes and sword, and the white paint being a bit transparent. The Exorcist cross is unfortunately a bit smudged, but the buttons are really nice. His face is painted nicely and character accurate, unfortunately, there are some spots embedded into the plastic on his face.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959155.jpeg
Third, we have Lenalee Lee ITEM #4558
She is wearing her 1st Exorcist uniform from the anime.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959156.jpeg
Lenalee’s sculpting is pretty simple, but all the details are there. Her hands are completely differently from the boys, and she has a cute open mouthed smile. Her two pigtails are on pegs and detachable (but pop off quite easily). The seam line in her hair is pretty obvious, but not particularly ugly, but she has some obvious moulding seam lines on her hair.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959157.jpeg
Her paint is also simple, but overall pretty accurate. Her Exorcist cross is also a bit smudged, and one of the buttons id a bit ugly and there are a few wonky lines between the black and white parts. Her face is pretty cute and character accurate, but her mouth isn’t completely painted and her skin has some odd coloration on her left cheek.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959165.jpeg
Next up, Lavi ITEM #4897
He is also wearing his 1st uniform from the anime, and is the other character with an accessory, his hammer.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959166.jpeg
Sculpt wise, he’s not too detailed, but all the details are present. The seam in his hair is ugly and obvious, but the moulding seam lines are present, but few and not very visible. He as an odd flaw in the plastic, but the paint of his eye covers and hides it. His scarf is a separate piece and pretty cute, but the rest of the clothes are pretty simple. His hammer is also simple, but nice.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959167.jpeg
Although his Exorcist cross is less smudged than the other 2, the painting lines are quite wonky in quite a few places, headwrap, zippers, hands, shoes and weapon. He also has some odd white paint splatter around the zipper. His face is nice and character accurate.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959136.jpeg
Last, but not least, Allen Walker ITEM #4559
Allen, like the others is wearing this 1st uniform, and this version of his figure doesn’t have his Innocence activated.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959138.jpeg
His sculpting is once again, like the others, simple but all the necessary details are present. The seam in his hair is obvious, but not ugly, while the moulding seam lines are present, they are pretty well hidden. His hood is a separate piece and so tiny and cute! The small details on his clothes and shoes are there, including some movement and folds in the fabric of his clothes (including his pants). But his feet don’t properly stand on the base.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959139.jpeg
His paint has some wonky lines of the white, especially on his hood, and some black paint bleeds on the soles of his shoes. His Exorcist cross is painted perfectly, but his buttons have some chipped paint. And finally, his face is really cute and character accurate, but there is a small paint spot on his hair near his face.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959141.jpeg
No ‘on the shelf’ pic yet this time either.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/29/2959143.jpeg
The other ‘figure’ you see in the display is an oc of mine I made ^^;

Overall, if not for the sweaty figure syndrome of these guys, I’d consider them a must buy, as they are cute, nice representations of the characters and the QC isn’t too bad either.

Thanks for reading <3

SerpentyleTorcVor 6 Monaten#105163910Yeah they're a bit pricey... They pop up secondhand sometimes for not too expensive but not always. I wanna make a mold of one of them to mby customize into other characters. The proportions are just so nice.
Yeah that's fair. I'm not the biggest fan of nendoroids either, they're quite bulky. I ordered him mainly to show support for the series. But it's nice that they did the first uniform, it's classic.
He did quite well i'm guessing, given that they announced Kanda and Lavi as well.

Making molds for even simpler things is hard T.T
I wish I had the funds to support the series like that, even if it was just Allen (I still kinda want it, cause it's Allen). It's good that the series is getting some love though :)

Mew-Lidia9Vor 6 Monaten#105141104They are really cute, and the QC is way better on these than the TMS ones I reviewed the other day.
Their price to size to availability ratio made me unable to get any of those T_T
I'm not holding as much hope unfortunately, the Allen looks like a generic nendo cosplaying as Allen, and not like Allen himself (or it might just be me with too high standards for favorite characters and my general dislike of nendoroids lol).

SerpentyleTorcVor 6 Monaten#105109485It's nice to look back at the few figures DGM got in the 2000s. I have the Lenalee of the set!
The Yujin set is really nice too, just wish they made more of them.
Can't wait for the nendoroids!
