Purple is my favourite colour and Index has quite a nice light tone of purple all over her! Another purple figure is also on her way, hitting my monthly purchase quota.

Got her at about 50% of the current market price, plus no shipping fee!
Had a little problem when she arrived. Her gold lining were melting off, staining parts of her rope. Probably due to long storage in warm temperature.
I had her wiped clean and most of the stains were able to come off easily. As a result, the gold tone is less yellowish as compared to the original and I actually like it more!
I thought she was pretty bad initially but after reading various reviews on other “defects” and how this batch wasn’t actually well-done in terms of quality, mine isn’t that bad at all.
Some had a scuff mark on her hair and bulges on her robe while others had the gold ink painted directly onto the robe itself. Thankfully her hair is smooth as I prefer her hood to be off. No visible bulges and the remaining stains to be quite acceptable after the cleaning.
She has another exchangeable set of hands together with her cat Sphinx, posting her holding Sphinx.
Overall she’s beautiful. Her facial features are well made, the colours are well gradient and decent flutters for her robe and hood.
After considering the quality setback for this particular piece, I would still give her a 8/10 because I am glad that her hair is alright.
