Eli comes with:
- 2 faces
- 2 sets of hand racks!
- A Hamburger and Wrapper
- 2 small poles (I don't remember the correct term)
- A school bag
- Standard Figma Stand
Eli's most impressive accessories are her tons of hands. She comes with designs I had never seen before, which really makes her stand out.

I didn't get the exclusive Eli face (which is a practice I really don't agree with). So mine came with a winking flirting smile and a pouting annoyed expression.
As usual I judge figures on their range of emotions derived from their faces. Eli can be both happy and angry this is enough for me. I think her expressions are very cute and also very exploitable...

I did mention exploiting her faces right? Well you know how this goes (some NSFW pictures to follow).
Eli meets a fan of Muse. How will this encounter go?
In a totally unrelated story, Eli steps in to save Mami from Egashira (and offer a productive change of pace)
Ika decides to abduct Eli in order to support her invasion!
So yeah, I had a lot of fun messing around with Eli. She's very cute and useful as a character for your desk.

I have no idea if I'll still like Eli this much in say 4 months. She's a school girl (technically an idol, but...) so there's a possibility I'll get bored of her like the many Haruhi figmas I've left in storage. That being said what Eli has going for her is that she has a lot of hands which allow her to be posed in many types of ways. Also I can tell that the quality figmas has improved since said haruhi figmas from 5+ years ago. The mere fact that Eli feels so new to me only makes me like her even more.
Staying Power: ?
Eli as aforementioned looks like a simple school girl. If you hadn't seen the show you would never think that she's an idol. Now if you're a fan of Love Live, then you'll love this figure. She's really cute and really fun.
