How is Clare ever going to beat Priscilla if she breaks so easily?

Thought i just had to post this new resin knight version of Clare.
Produced by E2046, pre-painted for only 99USD. I'm buying 2 just to sell
the other one later at much higher price xD

She looks so ugly there. And they have the nerve to ask such a price.

Well, for the price, no doubt it's something of a rip-off. I seriously doubt it costs even $50 to produce, but I must disagree about the "ugly" thought. I think the black goes very well with the metallic silver. If Yagi had colored Claymores like that for the series from the start, I would've liked it even more. It gives Clare a very nice vibe and look in my eyes. She looks more like a sleek assassin or soldier than a more dour, gray-colored warrior.

The problem I have with it is that it seems to be the exact same color as the original figurine in the exact same pose, with just a fancy paint job. If they want $100, then they should have made a new figurine (preferably of Teresa or Galatea-sama), not re-painted an existing one.

The Original version's a pvc, and it's color contrast sucked for me and many others. This is a resin kit with excellent painting and a much better color. Fans voted for this and E2046 made it come true, Teresa or Galatea would be the worst move business wise just to satisfy a few that want them.

you get this from E2046, their prepainted resin are probably the best in the world for the cheap price.

What fraction of people who watches anime buys resin figures? less than 20%.
And what was the result of people who like Claire in the anime would even buy the Claire figure? Less than 30%.

Yes there are lots that like Galatea and Teresa. The amount of people who are willing to pay for a 100USD+ figure for them are ignorable.

And FYI, i probably started Claymore earlier than both of you .

@ Ryuken, i don't think that's included in the resin haha. The 100 promos are nearly sold out now, price will be back to 160USD original soon~.

Both Galatea and Teresa are more popular then the main character Clare is, which is why they are assuming you are new to Claymore.

There would be more people willing to buy Galatea/Teresa figures then Clare figures, that might even apply for Miria as well, as she is almost as popular as Clare.

Only Teresa is more popular than Clare.

O did something happen in the latter chapters to make these 2 so popular?
I've only read up to the point where they figured out that the land is just a test place for building soldiers. And at that point I really liked Miria and Claire only~~.
I mean Teresa's dead already and Galatea's blind, get over it =P
I'm waiting for half a year before i read it again so can skip the hideous wait time.

As for figure on Teresa and Galatea, i don't think that's possible until a year after 2nd season of the anime finishes. In the trading figure they released, only Teresa was included. If you were to ask me, I'd say there's a higher chance for Miria to be produced in a bigger size first~

I think your figures for people who buy figurines is a bit high across the board. I doubt the number is even 3% - still, that's 3% of a very large number.

In any case though, I will say this:
The Clare 47 pvc is the only figurine I have ever bought (and I think it's perfect). Since then I have considered purchasing others, including the other Clare one, but decided against all of them - I don't want my place to be overrun by models of anime characters. I guess I'd feel too much like the the guys from Otaku no Video, or the fat animator from Animation Runner Kuromi...
If, however, a similarly high quality figure of Teresa or Galatea-sama ever appeared, I'd buy it in an instant. They're both worth the little remaining dignity me and my humble abode have.

As for starting Claymore before me... I read my first chapters of it about about 4 or 5 years ago now. Then ran out of chapters (the scanlators only did a few chapters), and stopped for years before picking it up again around the time of the anime. I fail to see how that relates to anything though.

@AmoreDoll:
You know very well that Clare and Galatea-sama go back and forth in the favorite character poll.

I've been waiting for a Teresa figure since I watched the first episode of the anime. Read the manga after, loved the short story with her in. I'm a Teresa addict.

Got a Teresa wall scroll and the trading fig of her in normal colour and silver.

I WANT HER FIGURE!!...........

As for the re-colour of Claire, I do buy everything I can of claymore. But, and don't get me wrong it does look good, I wouldn't buy the same figure re-coloured for 4 times the money I paid for the original.

Though thanks for posting it want to at least know everything that comes out for it.

The worst part is knowing that Teresa figures actually do exist, but are so long out of print that I can't find any...
