    The hair doesn't look as neon and garish as it did in the earlier photos. I'm not sure if that is due to the lighting or whether a change was made late in production.

    I still think that applying a nearly identical metallic blue "highlight" to all of the blue parts was a mistake. But, Peekablue looks pretty decent and the excellent sculpted detail and paint applications on the tail feathers really improve the overall look of the figure (while also unfortunately highlighting the "plainness" of the rest of the figure).

    She looks stunning! The hair is far more cartoon-accurate now.

    Can't wait to get her!

    I just want PoP completed so I didn't care that much, but I have to say - that looks nicer than the pics we saw beforehand. My only nitpick is that the fan needed some deco - might have to see about doing that myself. But overall she looks great...just one more to go!!!

    It's got metallic red paint on top of the plain red plastic. It's just not showing up very well in these photos, although it was noticeable in TheFwoosh's photos from memory.

    Got mine today to Her eyes are not perfect but its ok. Not as worth that I would exchange her.
    Her colors are great and she looks very beautiful.
    I think her feathers are a little bit to big but thats just my opinion.
    Overall an fantastic figure
    Love the blue/green shimmer on her feathers

    Peekablue Arrival Thread

    My peekablue just got delivered and she's a massive surprise. She looks amazing in hand and so bright and vivid. I took some quick pics, I love the shimmer effect on the peacock feathers.

    Hmmm...blue underneath? I think I may want to chip the paint off mine. I like the blue better.

    And be careful when you move her legs with bending the skirt or press the skirt with the fingers...the color there breaks to.
    It seems they use cheap colors without seal them with a spray or so...

    Looks very nice. I may pick her up but I'm not sure if she's worth Digital Rivers shopping prices...

    My Peekablue arrived today while I was on the phone with my sister. My sis had a few POP figures back in the day, so we enjoyed chatting about it as I was opening the new figure. She looks awesome! Everyone has commented about the shimmery feathers, and I agree. Pics don't capture it, but they look so cool! Her face is also an awesome sculpt, and mine was painted very well. She and Mermista are the best in my opinion. The Rebellion shelf looks so good with her on it!

    Got mine today - and I'm more pleased with her in person! Her sculpt is fantastic. I feel the sculpt is underserved by the paint choices. I like the iridescent paint touches, but the skirt is a really unfortunate mac 'n cheese color. I like that her feathers can be reversed to look like the train of a dress - I'll be displaying her that way.

    My Peek's eyes looks off to the right. I might grab another one off Matty in hopes of a better head and to get another fan so I can have two...

    My Peekablue arrived!

    She's a stunning figure! Those feathers…WOW! No real QC issues with her, paint apps and joints are all good. Just a nitpick…I wish the hair had been sculpted in such a way to allow better head articulation. Other than that…I love her! All that detail in the feathers and the shimmering paint! Her face sculpt is very nice as well! Very happy with her…now hurry up Saturday…I want my Callix figure!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Got mine today, pretty awesome. I'm wondering, however, when I plug the feather rig into her back, the feathers are bent slightly back by her hair. Only slightly so I don't think it'll be a problem, but has anyone else noticed this? I don't know if my peekablue's head is sitting too high or if it was just engineered this way.
