Skoshbox Review March 2017

Skoshbox Review March 2017

Skoshbox changed their booklet starting this month to be more descriptive of each treat, as well as more educational about Japanese terms and culture. It’s pretty cool, honestly. I like that it’s bigger now, so things are easier to read. (I’m old, alright?)

This month’s box only contained four items, but they were all of decent size, so it wasn’t a problem. Let’s review what they were and what I thought!

JoJo Figure Buying Guide Statue Legend

JoJo Figure Buying Guide Statue Legend

(Parts 4 through 8)

*Last updated 10/7/17 – Added Crazy Diamond!*

There are more figures for JoJo out there than the Super Action Statue line, which I’ve written about here and here (for the Stands). There are expensive, large figures with real clothing (known as Real Action Heroes, which I’ll talk about later) and statues fairly similar in size to the SAS line without articulation or extra accessories, known as Statue Legend.

Statue Legend is produced and designed by Di Molto Bene, the same company that makes Minissimo. The Statue Legend line is long and covers most of the parts of JoJo, and continues to add more and more characters to its collection to this day. Aside from the lack of articulation, the crucial difference between this line and Super Action Statue line is that Statue Legend consists of not only main characters, but side and less prominent characters as well, both good and evil.

Since the Statue Legend line is pretty big, I’ll be cutting this down to several posts. This post will cover parts 4 through 8 — Diamond is Unbreakable through JoJolion. (Stone Ocean and Steel Ball Run don’t seem to have any Statue Legends yet, though.) Check out the parts 1-3 guide here!

Note! This line, as far as I am aware, DOES NOT have any bootlegs! This is great news since it makes it easier to safely buy a figure without worrying about poor quality. This may change in the future but this line has been out for quite some time, so you’d think it’d have been bootlegged by now if it was going to be.

While I’m at it with the bold text, let me also throw out a disclaimer that the Amazon and eBay links are affiliate links that provide me a very small commission of off every purchase. This comes to no extra cost to you, but I want to let you know that they do help me out some! Thank you!

Skoshbox Review February 2017

Skoshbox Review February 2017

Last month’s box was probably the best one I’ve received so far! I was super excited to open this one to see if it could live up to the legacy of the best box. 🙂

I was very surprised to see that my picture from Instagram was included on the back of the booklet! (It’s the one with the Sailor Moon blanket, haha.) I’ve never been featured in anything before, so that was awesome!!

Skoshbox Review December 2016

I’m a bit late on this one, sorry! I’ve been busy with the holidays and adopting a new kitten, so Skoshbox was put on the backburner for longer than I’d like. That being said, this box was a very nice change from November’s and I was excited to review it ever since it arrived in the mail!
