Tokyo Ghoul Ken Kaneki Figure
Score 84%Score 84%
Ken Kaneki 7″ figure by McFarlane is overall a good figure. This figure does not have the best quality, details, or durabablity, but it is a great value for entry collectors. This figure is reasonably price compared to other Toyko Ghoul figures, making this figure a great value. Since Lazy Sensei considers this one of the many anime figure gateway figures, collectors with large collections could pass, however, if you are just starting to collect Toyko Ghoul figures, this should be first on your list. McFarlane made a great Ken Kaneki figure for the price.
Pros & Cons
Great figure for the price
Entry figure for Ken Kaneki fans
One of the best figures made by McFarlane
Does not feel or look preimum
McFarlane did a great job with the details on this Tokyo Ghoul figure for the price they are offering the figure at. This figure is great for people looking for a cheaper alternative to paying hundreds of dollars for the other Toyko Ghoul figures currently available. Unfortunately, when comparing this figure to other Tokyo figures, this Kaneki figure fall behind. Instead of comparing this Ken Kankei figure with other anime figures in this price point, collectors will compare this to the Toyko Ghoul figures that they already own. This is exactly why Lazy Sensei is recommending this figure to Toyko Ghoul fans that are not going to collect all of the Tokyo Ghoul figures. Nevertheless, the details are subpar. The details on Ken Kaneki’s Kakuja looks great for any price point. Since his Kakuja is the focus of this figure, McFarlane did not have the resources to prefect Kaneki’s face or hair.
Quality is lacking on this Ken Kankei figure, even for the price point. It simply just does not meet our stands of quality. The figure feels cheap because of the type of PVC material used. This may not be a problem for most since the figure do not move, however, their are consumers that do touch the figure often. Those collectors will surely be disappointed that their figure does not feel good to the touch. McFarlane’s Toyko Ghoul anime figure is not the worst or even much worst than the average figure in this price range, we just expect better from this figure. Our standards are always high when McFarlane releases a new product. If you do not mind the cheap feel of anime figures, you will enjoy this figure more than the review team at Lazy Sensei did.
No moving parts often mean better durability right? Well, that is expected, not the rule for anime figures. There are anime figures with moving parts that are more durable, however, not in the same price range. McFarlane made a figure that will last for years with care, but it is doubtful that it will look brand new like the other premium figures in your collection. Since the Lazy sensei team does not have a time machine we can only predict. the longer-term durability. For short-term, it seems decent. We believe this figure will not stand the test of time because if McFarlane did not even use their resources to produce a figure with great details, we should expect the same for the quality and durability right? Once again, this figure is great for the short-term buyer that wants a Kenaki figure for a reasonable price.
This is where McFarlane get some praise for their Ken Kaneki figure. This is the best Tokyo Ghoul figure when only comparing based on value. The details, quality, and durability are average at best, but the price is reasonable, making the value very high. Price is not the only reason this Tokyo Ghoul figure has high value. This figure is the only Ken Kaneki figure for an attainable price, meaning unless you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars, this is the only and best option. Hard to complain about value when this is the only product for a small budget.
Summary One of our personal favourite Tokyo Ghoul Figures. Definitely recommend!
