| 2 Comments

I don’t know if anyone here knows this, but I’m a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge Super Sonico fan!

OMG DAT KAWAII-NESS

Now, this isn’t my first figure nor my first figure review…but I’m still kind of bad at it~

Anyways, just some pre-writing specs regarding the figure:

I know, I know, I’m not great with taking photos of my beloved figures.

To start off, the this Super Sonico figure is more or less unlike the rest. Usually, with the rest of the Sonico figures, Sonico is shown in the “shorter”, less “leggy” style, which does appear to be the more accurate to the original art. However, being the stickler for leggy females,  I choose the Tokonatsu variant over the original. Another point about this figure that’s not the same with other Sonico figures is the length of her hair. Sonico’s hair isn’t usually “hip-length”, which is acceptable, but again, due to personal preferences, I went with this one since I love girls with longer hair.

Oh deary. I think I might be losing blood.

She’s castoffable alright. Sonico’s castoff features in this figure includes the shirt and the jean shorts. Although I didn’t take a picture of the “modified shirt” chest piece, there is an additional part you can swap out the original shirt chest-piece for one that exposes her supple breasts.

While I’m pleased that the cast-off features has all the necessary ones (hush, don’t tell everyone I adore breasts), there is something of a pet peeve. With this Sonico figure, you cannot display her sans-shirt. What this means is, though you can take the shirt-chest piece off, you can’t actually remove the back part nor the sleeves. Thus, you either have to display it with the complete shirt, or the pulled up shirt chest piece.

Look at all those details!

Not only am I somewhat strict about a figure’s features, I also go crazy when it comes to detail. At around 9K yen, this figure isn’t necessarily cheap. On top of that, it’s made by Good Smile Company, so I do have expectations.

Anyways, do pay attention to the photo above and the ones below. The skin tone, which has a base of white, is simply gorgeous. Some figures have a cheap “yellow-y” look to the girls’ skin, and that’s a huge no-no for me. Supplementing the skin tone is the painted areas of pink, which really accentuates all the bends, nooks, and crannies of this figure. Definitely adds more “depth” to the figure. If it didn’t have such splendid pink shading, the figure would look a bit too ghostly white.

Aside from the skin, the anatomy of the body is perfect. The girl has a tummy, which, if she didn’t, it would actually look quite sickening. Also, the curves are done just right. Not too small, but not too exaggerated either. On top of that, even her nails are painted! And it’s not done all over the fingers/toes like some other figures; they actually hit the spot…or because it’s actually light pink, I couldn’t tell? XD

I don’t always say “dat ass” to figures, but when I do, it’s the one that’s on my desk.

Feet fetish. Not sorry.

Look at the “pink” tone on the arms/elbow. Really adds a more “life-like” feel to this figure.

Note the print on the shirt and the details with the hand. Not bad.

You’d be surprised if I didn’t post a picture like this.

Before I get too carried away the beauty of this Sonico figure, I also must point out some short comings. Though I do love figures with long hair, this figure’s “hair quality” wasn’t too great. It seemed almost as if it were some soft goo with lines drawn between them. Is it because of the colour? The lighting? Who knows, but the general feel from the hair is…well…”iffy”. In general, something I’m not too excited about.

Full shot of Sonico w/o  shirt. I’m a guy…can you blame me? More importantly, do note what I was saying about the non-removable sleeves.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY, BUT IT’S SO SE- ERR…I MEAN VISUALLY APPEALING.

Anyways, as an overview of the figure, I’d certainly have to say I’m VERY pleased with it. From head to toe, the details were just fantastic, especially the skin tone. I don’t think MegaHouse could’ve even done better! Though the figure is not without its cons (hair & headphone band & non-removable shirt parts), I don’t really mind overlooking those problems because I’m too pleased by the detail of the figure. Seriously people, GSC does not disappoint. Certainly a bang for the buck & a Sonico figure unlike the rest.

  1. Well, it does looks kinda weird in cast-off, while still having the sleeves sticked on. I think I still prefer the one without cast-off. Super Sonico has a hell lots of figures, but I think one of my favorite is still the bathing one, though that’s also not completely without flaw (I dislike the “cut” bathtub).

    • Yeah, I definitely like the non-cast off ones better, especially the bathing one, now that you mention it. I was actually going to order it, but didn’t have the $$$ at the time, so I missed out. Of course, no figure is without a flaw, but you know, the bathtub thing I’m fine with.

      Next up, I’m going to do a review of my Tamaki figure…which really saying much since there’s even more Tamaki figures than there are Sonico ones XD
