This is a review of a figure in an outfit that gives easy pantyshots and has quite some bosom showing, so I have marked it NSFW !

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Maakie1563467532.jpeg

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Black Magician Girl ENTRY #4189 , specifically in her look from the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie: The Dark Side of Dimensions ENTRY #92486 ! This figure ITEM #338779 is made by Kotobukiya ENCYCLOPEDIA #7621 . The sculptor of this figure, Shirahige Tsukuru ENTRY #8235 , has sculpted most of Kotobukiya's Yu-Gi-Oh! figures, including the earlier by Kotobukiya released Black Magician Girl ITEM #42095 .

I will start off with telling some more about her background.

Background

For a more detailed background about the Yu-Gi-Oh! (Duel Monsters) franchise, I recommend you to look at one of my other Yu-Gi-Oh! related reviews, such as my recent one from Seto BLOG #40334 . For this specific figure, we're looking at one styled after the 2016 released movie 'Gekijouban Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions', which is a continuation of the Duel Monsters anime and a celebration for the 20th anniversary of the franchise. When the movie was announced I was very stoked as a fan to see new content with my favorite Yu-G-Oh! main characters, but at the same time I was also a bit weary of this being an easy cash grab for the anniversary. Luckily I was proven wrong and this movie actually has very decent plot and beautiful animation! If you are a fan of Duel Monsters and have not seen it yet, I really recommend you to watch it! The Blu-Ray with English subtitles is easily available.

I don't think Black Magician Girl needs a lot of background on this website, she is pretty much the main mascot of the franchise. She is an monster card in the anime/(card) game and the counterpart of Black Magician ENTRY #21538 .

The reason why and how I got her

This figure was announced as a trio of Magician Girls from the newest movie. I was a huge fan of the newly designed Lemon Magician Girl ITEM #358241 / BLOG #40018 and loved the pose of the Black Magician Girl reviewed here. As my completionists' urges kicked in and I love the general style of the Magician Girls, I ended up pre-ordering all three. Also hoping that my money thrown at Kotobukiya for these figures would maybe motivate them to continue the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARTFX J line, but unfortunately it has been silent for a long time there...

Original art

There is no specific artwork the posing of this figure was modelled after, but BMG is specifically in the look of the new movie:

Which means her clothing design looks a bit more modern, with more parts of her clothes being tight fitting and her also having a bit more of a youthful look. This makes this figure quite different from the earlier released Kotobukiya Black Magician Girl ITEM #42095 who has a more mature look.

A bright and colorful box with a big heart cut-out, very fitting for Black Magician Girl! There is also a small heart cut-out at the back.

The back of the box uses the prototype picture of the figure, as you can see here that the eye is handpainted.

The heart for the heart-window at the back of the box makes the top flap bigger and thus making it quite hard to open the box. It needed a lot of prying and I ended up slightly damaging the cardboard of the top flap.

BMG is quite snugly put in those blisters!

BMG comes with a small instruction sheet, mentioning how to put the staff in her hand and how to assemble her onto the base. The figure with attached decorative pieces is quite heavy compared to the thin PVC base, so some extra attention is needed here.

And right away to a not so fun part, straight out of the box my BMG seemed to have a piece broken off from the base. At first I thought some pegs might have come loose, but as the pegs did not fit together anymore, it seemed like it had a very clean break. Luckily, when it comes to assembly, you need to put this triangle-shaped bottom piece into the basic base. So without any glueing I just managed to make it fit snugly in the base and didn't have to make any repairs.

Bonus item: Clear Kuriboh strap

Let's first take a look at our bonus item! The strap with Clear Kuriboh as seen in the movie.

The design of the new Kuriboh is probably based on a matryoshka doll. It looks pretty cute!

I had to put on my flash to make it visible, but the smallest Kuriboh inside has hands that hold handles and push the outer Kuriboh away.

There is a bit of shading to be seen on the strap and the sculpt of the fake fur is decent.

From the place where Kuriboh splits, there are some not so clean painted parts. The eye decals on my copy are also not perfectly placed. Overall I would still say that the quality you are getting here is the one of a small extra (trading) figure, which is way above average for a strap! So this is still a very nice bonus item in my opinion, also with it's size.

The posing of BMG is near perfect! While I really liked the earlier Kotobukiya BMG release, this figure feels a lot more in-character!

Looking at all the details!

Let's get directly to one of the eyecatchers of this figure: her cute face! Her eye decal looks lovely and bright, the trademark red blush cheeks are present as well. Her hair has been painted in a slightly metallic shine and those big locks really give the feel of the 90's design she is.

BMG's hat is held on her hat with a magnet and can be easily removed. Unfortunately my figure right away got a small paint scuff from the first removal of the hat.

The inside of the hat is not that pretty looking with the very visible attachment piece for the magnet, luckily nothing of this is visible when this figure is displayed normally.

Her hair has some great looking spikes and there is a lot of shading. A lot of older Kotobukiya figures have some issues with leftover PVC in details like this, but BMG has nothing like that.

Putting the hat back on, it's unfortunate to see that she has a similar issue as my earlier reviewed BMG prize figure by FuRyu BLOG #42952 , where the seamline of her hair is fully visible through the hat.

I actually expected a bit more of the quality of the hat, the details look quite flat and the lines aren't painted very evenly everywhere.

BMG's bosom is another very well known aspect of the character design and although her breasts are almost fully on display, it does not even feel that ecchi when the figure is viewed from a normal angle. The overall design of her outfit does not make it a 'look at these breasts'-kind of figure.

The crest at the front has a nicely applied decal. The pink linework on the outfit is also better than the linework on the hat.

This figure gives quite a lot back view on the outfit, which is quite rare with BMG figures.

My specific copy of this figure has a few weird paint mishaps, there is a dark blue spot at her side, and the purple from the hip-part has a big paint defect.

I actually also expected a bit more when it comes to the detail on the gloves, but maybe my expectations were a bit too high as I also recently unboxed some more expensive figures from other manufacturers. This BMG was released for ¥9K in 2016, which was quite a low price back then as most simple scaled figures were already hitting ¥12-13K yen release price.

I do like the metallic shine on the gem at the glove itself.

BMG has fingernails sculpted with more details than I've seen on a lot of other figures. Surprisingly, there is no nailpolish or glossy effect painted on them. I think this would have really added some extra detail.

In person the staff looked quite good, but when I was editing these pictures on the computer, I saw these small cracks at the top for the first time. They could be details in the sculpt, but I doubt it. On the other hand, the staff also doesn't look damaged at all, so I'm a bit puzzled. If other owners of this figure are reading this review, does your BMG's staff have this? It might only be visible in zoomed in photographs and/or in a bright light.

The right hand making the cute peace-with-thumb sign is another eyecatcher of this figure. I was impressed at the quality of the sculpt at the inside of the hand, with lines in the skin for the finger joints as well. The sculptor definitely gave more attention to her hands than what I've seen in other Yu-Gi-Oh! figures!

Following the rest of BMG's outfit, we see the cute arrow-shaped pieces of fabric and quite some movement sculpted in the dress.

The cape at her sleeves has a bit less shading, but has similar nice sculpting work.

The bottom part of the dress has a bit of sloppy painting again. I wonder if the amount of linework was a bit too ambitous for the price they released this figure for.

BMG's knee and lower leg are attached to the decoration piece of the base and she can't be removed. If you look very closely you can see a metal pin inserted through both plastic pieces.

BMG's posing and always short skirt, make for an easy pantyshot. Her white panties are quite a bit smaller in the movie design compared to her original design.

https://tinyurl.com/y6m9v3km?.jpg

It's a lot harder to get a pantyshot from the front with the placement of her legs.

https://tinyurl.com/yyl7oq6s?.jpg

BMG has some really nice thighs sculpted and I like the shading around her knees.

https://tinyurl.com/yyoes5pg?.jpg

https://tinyurl.com/y44eee4r?.jpg

BMG's shoes are very nice looking, I really like the color contrast here. The linework is here also pretty good, the best lines on this figure overall.

https://tinyurl.com/y4lc8y3w?.jpg

https://tinyurl.com/y52ge7en?.jpg

The base with the jumping hearts design is quite unique and although these parts look simple, they are executed well.

https://tinyurl.com/y44dphwz?.jpg

The attachment of the decoration piece to the actual base felt a bit iffy to me at first, but you need to lock the decoration piece quite deep in there, so it's a lot more sturdy than it looks.

https://tinyurl.com/yym2ck6z?.jpg

The black base with the magic circle I found to be a bit lacking. It looks a bit cheap/simple compared to how elaborate the heart-parts are, but I guess they needed to save some costs with those huge heart parts also being a part of the base.

Together with the other movie Magician Girls

https://tinyurl.com/y6sjv92z?.jpg

https://tinyurl.com/y2uufu9t?.jpg

It's actually surprsingly hard to display these three figures together, because all of them are so big! The difference in their color palettes makes them really aesthetically pleasing to display together like this.

Comparison with Kotobukiya's earlier BMG offering

https://tinyurl.com/yxtnvywt?.gif

https://tinyurl.com/yy8v4a4n?.jpg

There are quite some differences between Kotobukiya's earlier released BMG and this one. The first thing noticable when you put them together is that the base of the earlier BMG has a more detailed sculpt, however the newer one has such a more dynamic posing! You can also see some slight outfit design changes (mainly with the colors) when comparing the original BMG to the movie BMG.

https://tinyurl.com/y2yj9rxn?.jpg
You really need to tone down on all those cute selfies, BMG!

The faces are the biggest difference with these figures, where the older BMG is clearly the more mature looking one even though she has the bigger eye size of the two.

https://tinyurl.com/y393674h?.jpg

At first glance the newer BMG seems to have a bigger bosom, but I'm pretty sure they are almost the same size, it's just that the front piece of the dress is falling more forward with the new BMG.

https://tinyurl.com/y4v2hr9n?.jpg

The newer BMG definitely has a better detailed staff, but I can't help myself from looking at those 'cracks'!

https://tinyurl.com/y6n5f3gd?.jpg

With the older BMG they went for see-through gems at the gloves and feet. This is a matter of personal preference what you like more. Personally I like the see-through gems more, but I'm also liking the color contrast of the metallic ones.

https://tinyurl.com/y5xg3sfe?.jpg

As was also visible on FuRyu's prize BMG, the newer BMG definitely wears a lot smaller panties! The older BMG wears white panties more fitting with the 90's design.

The Points

https://tinyurl.com/yyf3yny5?.jpg

Positive
- Great set-up and posing
- Probably the most in-character BMG figure out there
- Overall good quality for what you pay for
- Nice bonus item keychain

Neutral
- Some minor paint mishaps that can vary with each copy of this figure
- As I'm not sure if it's normal or only my copy: Accesory piece at the bottom of BMG had an broken piece right out of the box
- Another thing I am not sure about if it's a defect and/or limited to my copy of the figure: there seem to be cracks on the staff

Negative
- The pink linework could really have been done better
- Bottom part of the base feels quite flimsy and is cheaper looking base compared to the earlier Kotobukiya BMG release

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
I'm quite impressed with some parts of the sculpting, especially the details in the hands.

Painting 7/10
I think Kotobukiya was maybe a bit overambitious for the size and price. This figure had a bit more defects than expected.

Posing 9/10
The posing is one of my favorite things of this figure. It's really in-character and the hand-sign is adorable!

Base 8/10
I thought the big heart pop-outs would 'wow' me, but the bottom part of the base feels and looks a bit low quality. It's still a really nice idea for a base set-up and it feels really sturdy, which is why I still rate it an 8.

Packaging 8/10
Nice and colorful packaing with the figure quite snugly put in there. It's a bit of a weird design choice to have such a big top flap, though.

Bonus item: Clear Kuriboh strap 8/10
The quality of the sculpt of this strap definitely impressed me.

Enjoyment 7/10
I really enjoy this figure, but I actually had a bit higher expectations, this might also be because of Lemon and Apple coming with less defects. Still, she is a nice addition to my YGO collection!

Conclusion

Probably the most in-character BMG out there, but something feels a bit lacking with this figure. This makes it a bit harder for me to say yes or no to recommending her. She's completely different from the other Kotobukiya BMG offering as well, so I guess it will really depend on your personal tastes and like for this character if this figure is recommendable.

Availability

Still easily available, but with a bit of a price hike nowadays. Originally released for ¥9K, she now goes on average for ¥13K. If you rather have her more mature looking counterpart ITEM #42095 you can get that one a bit cheaper, ¥10K-¥12K on average.

And to finish it!

https://tinyurl.com/y57o9ze4?.jpg

I actually had a bit of a hard time when trying to re-arrange the figures for displaying. I wanted the trio of the newer Kotobukiya MG's together and Lemon seemed like the best center point looking at my earlier made pictures, but it was such a tight fit in the detolf!

https://tinyurl.com/yy688to5?.jpg

BMG looks better when placed in the middle, but this shelf is getting way too cramped! I also can't put Black Magician any higher, as he's already almost touching the top of the detolf shelf.

https://tinyurl.com/y4gpr8wy?.jpg

In the end, this was the best set-up. I love how it looks like Black Magician has his small harem on the shelf!

I'm aware of BM not being put correctly on his base and this review is using older pictures. It has been fixed now.

https://tinyurl.com/y4t3z7kw?.jpg

Unfortunately that meant that I did not have a good display position right away for my new BMG, so I temporarily put her together with some of my other BMG's and will think later about how to display her.

https://tinyurl.com/y4v5kvca?.jpg

I like how my YGO cabinet is coming along, I have about 60% of my YGO figures unboxed now, which worries me a tiny bit as I would like to keep this collection limited to one detolf in total, which means I might have to sell some of them. Anyhow, those are wories for later. Right now I'm happy with how I have them displayed!

Thank you for the review! I gotta admit they haven't done a good enough job with the painting of the new version, even though they had advanced so well with the Atem Pharaoh figure where shading and painting was 10/10.

However seeing your Review has made me want to display the two new DMGs with the older Dark magician girl instead of the new one. The old ones just seems less flawed and fitted way better in the cabin with the other girls and their teacher! Thank you for showing all of them in so many different angles and great review as well!

I've been wanting them since they came out, but havent been sure when to start collecting them. I was unlucky to get a bootleg of the old ones back in the day and haven't tried finding her since.

Thanks for reviewing her. Her pose and colorscheme were for me the reasons for adding her to my collection. Also her face is gorgeous and the pose compliments her character very well. I agree that Koto could have done a better job on the seamline on top of her hair.
I was a little bit shocked about the cracks on the staff. I also have checked mine and it has two noticable cracks in it. Looks like it is only the paint and not the pvc under it.
Besides that i still think this is one of the best Black Magician Girl figures available. :)

victorviper (1 måned siden) #63987665Of the two Black Magician Girls you compared, I think I like the new one more. The pose is so much more energetic.
Also, maybe I've got the character on the brain since I wrote a review of one of her figures the other day, but it also occurred to me that this particular rendering of the character looks an awful lot like Hakufu Sonsaku. Also, her pose is not totally unlike this ITEM #384 Hakufu figure.


Interesting choice! :) I would also like to hear your opinion on how you find my display with the sitting Koto one? I have a hard time deciding the set-up. I like how this newer BMG fits with Lemon and Apple, but the three of them are so hard to display together! Not only with the detolf limitations, but also with all three of them taking so much space sideways!

You know, I never thought of it like that, but now that you mention it...especially with the figure that you linked, that hair shape and movement! Personality-wise I guess they're a bit alike too. :)
