Monstadt’s very own Spark Knight, demolitions extraordinaire and resident loli can now be yours in PVC form. And while she isn’t cheap (around ¥17,000) it is still a helluva lot cheaper than buying Primogems to get her in her own banner. As of this writing, her market price is around ¥21,000. I would not expect it to stay within that price range for long though. To note, it will cost you around $363 (¥43,000) in Primogems to guarantee her if you lose the 50/50 gamble. At this moment though, there is no guarantee when we will her next banner rerun so there is currently no way to get her in-game.
If you did not get her in the game, here’s a guaranteed roll that will get you Klee so you can go fish-blasting.
Many people preordered the Klee figure from Taobao during her initial release as there was some uncertainty in her global release. But also people who preordered from Taobao got the exclusive bonus. I got the release with the exclusive bonus which I did not really care for. All I really wanted was the figure. I already have tons of figure boxes that I do not know what to do with and I feel like this will just add to the clutter at home. Weeks after the initial release in China, the global release came but without the bonus item. She also opened for a rerelease probably to accommodate the massive amounts of preorders. Genshin Impact, after all, is a worldwide cult hit.
I’m excited about this unboxing because it is the first scale figure of any character from Genshin Impact and I also just got a new mirrorless camera so I’ll be able to put it to the test. I am a total beginner at using an actual camera so forgive me if the pictures aren’t perfect.
The box is a beautiful red, white and gold theme and it looks great. It has a large window so you can see the figure in full view. There is also a portrait of the figure on there. At the bottom, there is also a print of some Chinese characters which I can only assume spells Klee along with the Pyro icon.
One side of the box is a plain red color with an elegant gold print of a four-leaf clover which is part of Klee’s theme. It also has Klee’s name printed in English.
The other side has a full portrait of the figure. Machine translation says the text reads “Klee still wants to go out to play! Take me out to play!”
The top of the box has a plain red color with a white lining with Klee’s name in English and Chinese in gold letters.
On the back of the box, you can see that the box has sustained some damage during transit even though it was packaged well. The box was covered with styrofoam but I guess it does not absorb as much force compared to good old bubble wrap. Fortunately, I don’t really give much of a fuss with a damaged box. It served its purpose. The figure arrived in excellent condition.
We Start Unboxing
It’s pretty standard inside. The figure is enclosed in blister packaging with plenty of protective plastic to prevent paint transfers. There are two pieces of the base that you need to attach. It’s not that difficult to do so just refer to the manual that should be inside the box.
There is a clear window to the face that actually allows you to display the figure even if it is boxed.
The Main Figure – Klee
And here’s a quick close-up look of the figure just after unboxing. Ain’t she just the cutest?
And here’s another snap from a higher angle. This also reveals a scratch on her hat. Not even 5 minutes into the unboxing and we already see a mishap. Thankfully, it’s not very visible when viewed under normal lighting.
A close-up of the face reveals the level of detail in her eyes. Her cheeks and the tips of her hair also have a reddish hue and that’s a job well done for the painter.
The figure stands at 17.5 cm tall and is a 1/7 scale. She looks quite big though I would say she is comparable to the size of the 1/6 scales that I have. Her base is huge and quite heavy. She’ll need around 20 cm of horizontal space.
The details on the hat also look great. APEX went all out in making this a great figure.
Klee is actually sitting on Jumpty Dumpty, the trusty bomb that scatters mines on the field when it explodes after bouncing a few times.
The Grass Base
Even the view from the back is great. You’ll notice the actual base of the figure has been fitted with a material that is meant to look like grass. This was not something I expected to see on this figure and it is the first time I’ve seen any figure manufacturer do this. I’m not sure how this material will withstand the test of time and I can imagine this being difficult to clean. This probably even prevents you from giving the figure a water bath in case it might need a deep cleaning.
You can also see the details on the leaves on the base. They are sculpted to perfection and the paint job is also well done. The middle part of the leaves is painted a darker shade of green. However, it is a shame that they did not add the veins on the leaves as can be seen from the bonus illustration. It looks great nonetheless. If I have to guess, they probably left out that detail on purpose because it looks better without.
There are really a lot of details on this figure and everything looks good. Though I do have one concern about keeping her clean. The figure has a lot of deep crevices where dust could settle in. You’ll most likely need to blow some air on it to get all the dust off.
I’m seeing problems with the base. The plank of wood with Klee’s name on it is a nice touch although I am extremely disappointed that there are bald spots of grass around it. APEX tried to implement a novel feature on a figure but I’d rather have a plain green-colored base executed perfectly than a gimmicky base that becomes a failure. Overall, I’ll still say this is an excellent figure but I do wish this problem on the figure was remedied by quality control before it went out. The bigger issue here is that this flaw is very noticeable.
Granted the grass base does look nice when the bald spots are not in view.
Mines and Party Poppers
And of course, there are these little cute mines that pop up when Jumpty Dumpty explodes. There are a total of five mines, each one sculpted and painted to perfection.
And then there’s this thing that looks like a party popper.
The Bag and Vision
And wherever Klee goes, she always has her trusty backpack. Don’t ask me how a small backpack can carry such large bombs or how her small body can lift such big bombs. The details on the bag are also spot on. Not to mention, the vision looks exactly how you’d expect a vision to look like in real life. It even has the Pyro icon etched inside. Not very visible from the pictures, but it’s there and it looks great especially when you shine a light on it.
Klee of course wouldn’t be adventuring anywhere without her best friend Dodoco by her side. If you don’t know what a Dodoco is, it is the doll attached to her bag and the four-leaf clover. Dodoco was hand-made by Klee’s mother who has yet to make an appearance in-game though she was mentioned in a previous event involving Klee.
The exclusive bonus is an illustration of Klee in a package featuring Jumpty Dumpty.
I have not yet opened it so I’m leaving this borrowed image here just to show what’s inside.
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.
