Rem was undoubtedly the star of the first season of Re:Zero. Even when she was sidelined for the entirety of Season 2, her popularity has not waned. Ram and Emilia looked like side characters if one would look at the sheer volume of Rem figures being released. I too found myself pre-ordering a slew of Rem scale figures. One of the first scale figures of Rem that was released was Phat Company’s Wedding version. It’s actually more like a wedding lingerie version instead of a proper wedding version.
This is done by Phat Company based on the illustration by iTANDI. The figure is a 1/7 scale and stands at 22 cm. Overall, the figure is not perfect but it looks great. As of this writing, the after-market price is okay. The price has not skyrocketed but it also hasn’t entered the bargain bin. It’s a pretty great figure and I’m proud to be an owner of one. It could also easily be one of the sexiest figures of Rem out there as it shows a lot of skin and curves.
The figure looks good at any angle. She has a simple pose that shows off her feminine charms. She doesn’t take a lot of space and that’s gains big points from me. Her base is just the right size. Just take a gander at any of the views below.
Now let’s look at the base. Remember when I mentioned this should be called a wedding lingerie version? The base stays true to Rem’s blue theme while also keeping in touch with the white wedding lingerie theme with white lace patterns. It might look like a simple base but the extra details on the prints give this an edge over those Rem figures with just a plain colored base.
Seeing that crease on the knee section of the stockings just adds a nice hint of realism. Like I always say, it’s little things like these that made a good figure a great figure.
Behind the shoe are ribbons. Sure they look nice but the dangling part of the ribbon should be shorter. She’d be stepping on those on the wedding day.
What’s really charming about this figure though is how Rem welcomes you with a gleeful smile with hands held out. You can also see her ring finger already has the wedding ring. I guess buying this figure means you’ve tied the knot with Rem.
Phat Company did a good job on Rem’s face. In fact, I think the face on this figure is its best asset. The face on the figure looks even better than the artwork. No offense to the illustrator. The artwork is great but the sculpt and the paint on the face is topnotch.
One issue however is that the skirt is not a perfect fit. If you look at it closely, you can see that it is not hugging her waist. It is not molded to her figure. The sculptors just made sure it is a shape that will fit even if it looks loose. You can actually wiggle the skirt and I’m pretty sure you can do a force cast-off on this one if you want to display her in just the lingerie.
Another issue I noticed is the strap of her bra on her left side and the skin close to it looks really bad. This is the worst facet of this figure. It’s not really visible unless you look really closely, but knowing that there’s an ugly bit hiding there, it just irks me a bit.
The figure even looks great from behind and this is not something that is usually said of anime figures. The flow of the veil looks really good and natural. Even her back looks great.
The white lilies on her however should have been a pure white color. As white lilies should be. What happened was the lilies became the same translucent color as the veil. The illustration clearly shows the lilies are white and are a different color from the veil. White lilies are supposed to embody purity. So what the heck do translucent lilies mean?
The bouquet could also be a more vibrant pink color but this isn’t really a big deal.
Overall, this is a really good scale figure of Rem which you can buy at a good price. It is not perfect. It has its flaws. The sculpt can be refined. There are no issues with the paint apart from the lilies which should have been painted pure white. If you want a Rem figure but your budget is a little tight, you won’t regret buying this one.
I started the NekoFigs blog in January 2021, 5 years after I’ve started collecting anime figures. It all started with one humble prize figure of Saber Lily which was bought on a whim. Now, I face the big problem of how to deal with over 200 empty boxes.
