Vault Review:
Figma Pit (Kid Icarus)

Aside from alternate faces, Pit also has swappable hands.  He comes with a pair of open, holding, and fists.  There’s also an extra right hand that’s posed to hold an arrow in a drawn back position.

Accessory wise, Pit comes with his trusty bow.  There’s also a translucent blue arrow and gold rings that can be slid over it.  While the iconic bow and arrow look is good, I actually prefer the bow separated into two curved swords.  It just looks a bit more dangerous.

Pit’s last accessory is a little Monoeye enemy from the games.  This little pink tentacled eyeball with his sarcastic/bored look is fantastic.  And it’s even made better by the fact that the eyeball is articulated.  Just turn the bottom tentacle and you can have him look around in apathy.  You’ll probably be seeing this guy pop up in future reviews…

The Monoeye comes with his own stand, but can also use the traditional Figma stand that’s included for Pit.

All around Pit is a great figure.  He’s on par with both Samus and Link, and definitely makes another great addition to a Smash Bros. shelf.  You should definitely be careful on those softer plastics, but I wouldn’t consider that a deal breaker for a fun little figure that can pull off some nice poses.

  1. Must resist urgeicus to make references to Catain N: the Game Mastericus!
    Dang these Figures ARE tempting!

    1. The figures are definitely great, but you’re going to have to leave for mentioning that truly awful cartoon. 😛

      The real sad part is that I own it on DVD just so I could add it to my Castlevania collection. I don’t think I made through two episodes when I tried to rewatch it.

  2. Man, I’m constantly blown away by these Figma figures. They come with great accessories, are very expressive, and have incredible poseability. Though my posing prowess is nowhere near as good as Vault’s, I could make a decent effort with the Figmas.

    1. Thank you, Paul! Although I have to admit, the figures really pose themselves and then command me to take pictures. 😀

  3. Ended up getting this shipped from Japan (EMS even) cheaper than a MOTUC from Matty. Pit is awesome and feels worth it. I haven’t got anything from Mattycollector in a good while that truly felt worth the price of admission. Sad because I love Masters and DC as a intellectual properties. Anyway, Pit is an incredible figure with great QC, and he is loaded with accessories. Great review.

    1. I definitely know what you mean. Matty’s “Adult Collector” line doesn’t stand up so well Japan’s version of the same thing.

      I also love that I can get an EMS package from Japan in the amount of time it takes Digital River to finally ship my order out.

  4. I’m only passing familiar with this character by reputation than anything else, but this looks like a good, dare I say *cute* figure?

    I’m a bit of a mythology buff, so it’s nice to see a new figure using that theme, AND his wings are better articulated than various (X-Men) Angel/Archangel or Hawkman figures! LOL Gotta love it for that alone!

  5. They did an excellent job on the wing articulation. It’s very simple looking yet super effective. Hawkman and Angel figures have nothing on Pit!

  6. Reading this review, I wish I hadn’t needed to cancel my order from AmiAmi. :/
    Gotta pick this up eventually for the Smash Bros shelf!

  7. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my weblog so i came to “return
    the favor”.I’m attempting to find things to improve my site!I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  8. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
