Review by JoshB
Vampire Curia (キュリア)was the first release in the Resurrection of Monstress line, a series of figures inspired by illustrator Yasushi Nirasawa.
Curia set the tone of the whole line, with her exquisite detail, numerous accessories, and of course, variants.
She is a Vampire Hunter
with the blood of a vampire and a demon
With her haunted past, she is destined
to wipe out all vampires
with her demonic sword "Bloodua”
The figure comes with a bunch of cool accessories:
- Coffin with Lid
- 2 syringes
- Blood bag
- Coffin head
- Small monster
The coffin is really cool. The inside is painted red, and the cover has amazing detailing. The inside of the cover has pegs so you can attach all the accessories to it. The coffin makes for great storage!
The figure is essentially fixed-pose. The only articulation is at the neck, shoulders and one wrist. The wings on the back do not move, but will break off easily. (They can be easily re-glued). The sword can attach to her hand by a peg in the handle, and the syringes can be hung on hooks at her hips.
Vampire Curia came out in 3 different variations:
- Normal Color
- Limited POP version (1,500)
Limited POP Version
I actually think the Limited POP version looks better than the regular. In addition to the red paint job, the POP version comes with a glow in the dark head for the coffin lid!
Also, the little monster is better detailed than the one that comes with the regular version.
