We purchased this item even after reading some mixed reviews. This arrived in a sturdy box and inside a see-through HLD designed box. It looked perfect and was part of our sons birthday theme. We put it on top of his birthday cake and it was a hit! I recommend this item.
Nice little figurine for the price, considering the first Google listing is 50 bucks on eBay. Very well modeled, professionally painted.
Only issues that prevent a perfect five are: somehow, while removing the plastic around the figure, the sword broke off (nothing a little super glue couldn't fix, but still disappointing)! Also, the butt of the hilt beyond the hand is bent, so it looks more like a bent lightsaber from Star Wars than a sword. Small issues, but still well worth a buy if you like Hyper Light Drifter.
The quality is good for the price. I also had the issue where one of the earpieces on the head was bent like someone in the reviews mentioned. However, this was easily fixed by hand. There were a few minor scratches on the bottom side of the base, which is not a problem for me, but it is worth mentioning. Other than these small issues, this figurine is definitely worth getting if you are a fan of the game!
It's a cute figurine in a nice pose. I love details on his mantle and gear. I hope there was more of his crystal visible, though, or they included his helper bot. The blue box is interesting, but not worth keeping -- I intended placing him in there after looking at the photos.
As for the cons, I think to match the colors of the game those should've been more vivid. His sword is transparent, which is a neat idea, but it should have been blue. There are at least two excessive glue spots - one under his feet and one between the mantle layers.
All in all, it's good to have for a fan. Adequate quality for this price, IMO.
I bought this for my boyfriend as a Christmas gift because he likes hyper light drifter, he loved it and it arrived in time! The only small issue I had is that one of the bits sticking off of his helmet was bent against his head because of how he was packed, but using my fingers to push it back to where it was supposed to be and holding it there seemed to work to fix it, overall a great lil figure for anyone who likes hld, and has a great display box if you're into that kinda thing
