Better photos have been added to the item listing on Urumi, and a comparison photo of the new eye position (right)

Huh, that's weird. I think the positioning of both eyes looks better on the right one, even though only his good eye has been adjusted. I guess it also makes the missing one look better because they look a bit more symmetrical now?

I also really like the little scar on his head (both because it's embroidered and because it's a neat little nod to his anime design) as well as the fact that the rip on his ear has a bit of red coloration on it.

As a side note, the new photo was also posted on Facebook, with the description noting that "He is no longer that sad looking~". Though I personally prefer the Finnish version which more or less translates to "The depressed demon has been replaced by an angry demon~", because "depressed demon" is an absolutely perfect description of the older design.

I just saw the new Riki plush - he does use the same pattern as Yukimura, maybe the red is a couple shades darker. The airbrushed scars are darker too. It's kind of funny seeing him so fluffy and compacted, but he's cute. Pictures are from Urumi's site.

I like him! They captured his natural expression well.
I'm glad they gave him brown eyes, like they did with Yukimura.

I really like that design! They've captured his personality well.
Tomorrow is the last item, if it's the 7th plush, I'm hoping for Ben, Hakuro or Kisaragi. We could do with a husky plush :)

Ahh, Riki looks awesome! Definitely gonna want him and/or pup!Gin but chances are slim at this point because I forgot to add the plush links to my wish list in time :orion4:

Also noticing Riki’s eyes are a bit different, more elegant-looking, than adult!Gin’s... I feel like the adult Gin plush would probably look nicer and less “done with yo bullshit” if he had the same eyes as Riki XD

I agree with Bluey, he doesn't scream "Riki" to me but its just because he's all fluffy and cute!

With the effort put into Kurojaki, I think the bar was set to high. There has been a bit of disappointment on the discord ...
His chest fluff perhaps should have been reconsidered? Because it means his scars are in the wrong place and not on his chest, and the smudging looks messy as a result. I think that's the main takeaway complaint

I don't mind the fluff in itself, since I think Yoshi's Akitas should look a bit fluffier. But perhaps embroidered scars would have made it work better in that regard.

I don't mind the fluff, either. If anything, I think it'd look a bit odd if Riki didn't have it, simply because that's how the other Pureplastic Akita plushies look.

Shame about how it kind of messes up his scars and makes his chest look like vanilla ice cream with bits of strawberry in it, and embroidered scars would definitely be nice, but I guess they'd make the plushies too expensive so they're not a practical option (except for really tiny scars, like the one on Kurojaki's head). But I still think he looks great.
