Like the thread title says, I pledged the Reaper Miniatures kickstarter campaign (one of the most successful in kickstarter history) at the "Vampire" level, and I just got my Kickstarter Sophie the succubus in the mail. Sophie the Succubus is a bonus limited edition figure available to donors who donated at the "Vampire" level and above. I opened it up (maybe that was a mistake, not keeping it in mint condition...) and it's a great little figure, let down by some unfortunate assembly quirks. On the good side, the figure is very characterful. The wings fit very snugly, and want to stay even without glue, although obviously you'll need to glue it to join them to the body permanently, but the join is very snug. Some complaints though; the point of contact for the wheel to attach to the bike forks is frustratingly small, and there's no good point of contact. I don't think the wheel will stay glued to the forks, You're going to have to glue this model to a base, it's not staying together any other way. Sophie also doesn't seem to have a set point of contact to sit on the bike. I mean, you can make a good guess, but it's not exact. A small peg and hole to join the two parts would have been helpful. Finally the handlebars. In a word, they stink. Sophie is waving her hands in two different directions, neither of which is conducive to getting her to grip the handle bars. It's not a question of turning the handlebars either. Either you have to bend her arms, or the forks, or something, Very disappointed. A very good limited edition figure, let down by poor assembly. What about you guys, how are your Kickstarter Sophies coming along? --Chris www.chrisvalera.com
