Well, it is complete. Perfuma is the final She-Ra figure to be recreated from the vintage toy line (excluding a few variants). She was the character I was least excited about of all the Great Rebellion and Horde ladies. In the cartoon I thought she was silly with her goofy personality, little ballet slippers, and entrancing flower smells. Like a lot of characters, Perfuma had very few appearances (only two), and I was perfectly okay with that. But again, like almost every character I've looked down upon from those early years, once I got my hand on this toy, my tune completely changed. She suddenly seems much older (in a good way), more formidable, and surprisingly her flower powers seemed interesting. I'm always amazed at how the Four Horsemen can change my opinion so thoroughly. It's kind of sad to be done with the main She-Ra characters, but it's nice to wrap it up with such a surprisingly nice figure. Hopefully the C-list characters will be released someday, but in the meantime, let's check out Perfuma!
Before I forget to mention this, Perfuma is scented. I was afraid she'd smell all flowery and perfumey, but in reality she kind of smells like fancy hand soap. I actually like it.
Perfuma comes with a removable rose headpiece, a giant rose canon, and a shield.
The headpiece clips on by wrapping around the folds of her hair. Pretty ingenious.
Here are some shots of Perfuma without the headpiece. I thought I would prefer her this way, but without it I think her hair looks a little flat and her outfit looks imbalanced.
I had issues with my two Perfumas. The first one had really messy eyes. One seemed to be looking up, the other down.
Plus there was a big smudge on her eyelid and the highlights on her irises seem misplaced. I ended up touching up the paint on this one a little bit and was happy with the results. All the pics above are post-touch up.
My second Perfuma had a mis-glued hairpiece. It's actually doesn't look that bad and almost gives her a wide-eyed innocent look., but it actually effected the way her hair flowed against her shoulders and back. Plus there was a shiny streak of glue on her forehead. I tried to remove the hair and reattach it, but I was unable to.
The rose canon is a throwback to an accessory included with the original vintage toy.
She had a back-mounted green accessory with a "blooming" cloth rose.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
