So, a week ago, I got an email from AmiAmi saying that "(my) preorder was ready to ship!"
...to which I said "Um...what preorder..?" =O.o=
My "surprise" (more like "forgotten") preorder, Clover from modelling circle Dabadi's "Polynian" line of cute robot girls (etc.), arrived Friday. This shot is simply an intro pic, but it also illustrates what may be the figure's sole real shortcoming: what you see here is ALL she comes with. No alternate faces, no gripping hands...she's lucky she's so damn cute.
What could be a shortcoming is actually a benefit: her facial expression is generic enough that it fits many different poses and situations. Still, I hope someone on Shapeways makes some more expressions for her or something.
Do she got da booty?
The other really surprising thing about her was how TINY she is...for comparison, here she is alongside my "Officer" Howling (MMS 1st type body), Renge (MMS 3rd Small type body), and OTFCC's Trans-Mutate, a redeco of Transfomers Prime
"First Edition" Arcee.
All-in-all, I like her a lot, although that's admittedly largely due to my love of cute robot girls. She feels light but sturdy, she can hold poses well despite having only friction joints, and she looks good in my collection. I wouldn't go out of my way to get her unless she meets those criteria for you, as well, but she's an excellent initial piece for what I'm hoping is a full, ongoing line.
