Megahouse - 1/7 Scale

The Idolmaster girls keep coming with yet another offering from Megahouse, this time in the form of Azusa Miura's "Brilliant Stage Princess Melody version". It's very, very pink, to say the least. I feel like it's a bit difficult to make a call on this one. While I'm a fairly large Idolmaster fan, at least as large as one can be without procuring the actual games, I've always found many of their figures a bit lacking, to say the least.

I'm not sure what it is, but something always seems a bit off, and the same holds true here, as well. Perhaps Megahouse just isn't the best producer to handle such a franchise? Whatever the case may be, Azusa here is a bit of a toss-up. Of the two options for hairstyles, I certainly prefer the longer one, and I'm hoping that means her 1960s-era flight attendant's cap is removable as well.

Her outfit is certainly interesting, providing quite the clash of colors and patterns. I do like her skirt and tights, though! It's hard to say whether or not this one strictly seems worth picking up, but you'll have until March to decide if you want to pay the ¥8,500 price of admission.
