S.H. Figuarts Momo Figure Review

What an actual figure review? I never do those. Nah I normally just don't think to do these, but I really love this figure and she's relatively budget so I thought I'd talk about her and provide some pictures. A few are NSFW, but compared to my usual its tame.

Here's a somewhat random picture of Momo lounging to start things off. As you hopefully know (otherwise why open the link) she's the 3rd princess of the Deviluke family from the anime To Love Ru Darkness (technically To Love Ru, but she gains importance in the later series). 


Momo comes pretty light in terms of accessories I have to admit. She has:

2 additional faceplates
6 hands
Her super-powered cellphone
A vine
Specialized stand (you know I'm desperate when I'm calling this an accessory!)

As I'll get to later I really like Momo's faces and obviously I'm biased as a fan of her character. That being said she really comes with next to nothing...

Here's an example picture of Momo wielding her vine. I don't think she ever did this in the manga or the anime she usually just spawned them with her phone. -___-

Here's an on-point accessory. Momo definitely uses her phone a lot to summons plants to fight for her. One of her hands has been sculpted to hold it perfectly. 

Some of her extra hands.

Oh boy the stand. It does look nice to be fair.

That being said 2 real accessories is nowhere near a passing grade here.

Accessories: 5 out of 10 


Momo has 3 faces:

A normal smiling face

A blushing/aroused face

and a weakened/sleeping/expecting a kiss expression

So for full disclosure, back when I was far younger and much more impulsive I bought this figure just because I liked the pervy smiling face. I would only later realize that it portrays the face Momo makes when she starts fantasizing about Rito or the harem plan. As such I like the face even more now. Her smile is cute and her 3rd expression is decent if you want to pose her troubled by something (or someone).

Faces: 9 of 10


I should admit that as a huge fan of Momo Deviluke I use this figure a lot for posing. I never get tired of the potential pervy adventures Momo can have in her quest to grow Rito's harem.

For example:

And these are only my recent pictures of her in random weird situations. The amount of roles I've used her for is numerous. I find her very fun to play with.

Playability: 9 of 10

Collection Utility/Staying Power:

I guess it shouldn't be hard to guess my verdicts on the last 2 arbitrary categories. This figure is great for To Love Ru fans and pretty much below average for anyone else. I love it and still take pictures of it to this day, because I'm a big fan of Momo. If you are too then I fully recommend this figure. Otherwise you can get a lot better figures even for her low price (I think she still goes for $30-40 maybe lower). 

Collection Utility/Staying Power: 10 of 10 

This never even happened in the show/manga and yet is an advertised way to pose the figures together? I don't get it, but tying up Yami is always nice so I'll let it slide.

Thanks for surviving my flood of overt favoritism. 

See you next time!
