Marie Mamiya: Starless

Alright, time for my first post! Let’s jump right to it.

My latest acquisition comes from Starless: 21st Century Nymphomaniacs, which is some ero game I’ve never played, and likely never will because I own a Mac. Even so, it’s become increasingly common for me to buy figures I think are beautiful regardless of what franchise they belong to. Such was the case with Marie Mamiya. The plot of Starless seems to revolve around the protagonist fulfilling the whims of the oversexed Marie Mamiya–kind of obvious based on this PVC figure.

I’ve spent enough money on figures to find I’m a believer of “bigger is better.” Marie stands at 1/6 scale, which compares with my tanned Bertille Althusser from Walkure Romanze, and those two are the tallest figures I have right now. The better to admire their forms with! I’m also a fan of full-bodied figures; that is to say, thick thighs and buttocks. Marie does not disappoint. She is the epitome of the hourglass.

There’s a white skin version of Bertille, but that orange is irresistible.

Manufactured by FREEing, the figure comes with two small hairpins, a glass of wine, and white and red wine spills you can insert into the glass. There are also a couple shoulder sleeves you can slip on. The base is simple and black. What you see is what you pretty much get.

A friend of mine who collects recently refined my figure game by pointing out he won’t buy figures with weird faces. Now that that seed’s been planted in my mind, I also look out for faces, which sometimes means passing on some great figures, like the Mash Kyrielight that recently was released. Marie here has one the most alluring faces I’ve seen in a figure. If the unrealistic body proportions weren’t enough to entice you, the slight smile and knowing eyes should seal the deal.    

Needless to say, Marie is a cast-off figure. I saw many photos of her without clothing, but it took me a few YouTube searches to realize how to remove her garment: pull off her head and arms, and slip it off from the top. The instructions suggest it can be slipped off from the waist down, but that makes little sense since the waist gets wider than the dress ever can. It wasn’t a pleasant experience, and I took a lot of photos because I don’t think I’ll ever be doing that again. 

Overall, I’m happy with this purchase. The quality could be slightly better, as there’s a poorly painted smudge on the left stocking, but nothing for me to write an angry review about. Like with most purchases of older figures (this one’s 2013), the price was a little high, but definitely worth it. Now that I have a salaried job and some disposable income, I’ve started pre-ordering many figures. If I ever get sick of them, I know they’ll fetch for a decent after market price.

Please check out the other photos of Marie Mamiya below, and let me know what you think! I took all the pics myself on my iPhone 7 Plus.
