Saw this up for preorder, decided to go for it, as I wanted a Yoko figure, and this was inexpensive, and a small form factor, so it wouldn’t take up too much space. Unfortunately, my first one came partially broken, and a number of flaws.
I didn’t have a small noodle pot to hand, so here she is stopping some Pasta n’ Sauce:
From this shot, you can see where the top hair chopstick has been snapped off – it doesn’t show too much from this angle, but it is shorter than it should be.
Here’s a close-up of her face, which is probably her best angle:
And a more side-on view:
In this shot, you can see where the black paint didn’t quite get to the corner of her pants. Her face is nice though.
Here she is from the back:
You can see the chopstick breakage from here, plus a mark on her backside. Her stockings are nicely done though.
This angle’s actually pretty good for lack-of-flaws. The details ion her boots is nice, and the way her hair flows is nice.
So what is her underside like?
Super-flat so she can act as a noodle stopper! The bra on this one is decently painted, especially compared to some others I saw, however the pants-body joint is a mess.
Here’s a close-up of the waist:
Yuck. Looks almost like someone tried to take her apart :/. Some of the silver blocks are bootleg-level of quality, sigh.
The next few shots will be closeups of the flaws I’ve found.
First up, the back of her hair:
There is some clumpy paint, and a black scuff. Note the broken hair decoration – I had a quick feel of the other one – this figure would make for a bad noodle stopper, as it’d be awfully easy to break these, especially if you had to clean her.
Some weird black mark under the sealant:
Also some thigh gap going on, on the left.
Sealant, what sealant?:
On her left hand side, you an see some mottled, shininess. This is present all across her back, and I’m pretty sure this is related to the sealant layer being done improperly. I’m not an expert though. Also the lower half of her body isn’t well contected into the strap, leaving a bit of a mess. A the very top of the pic, you can see where the purple paint has escaped its designated area.
I was disappointed with this figure, and especially considering it arrived broken, I contacted the retailer to investigate my options. They very kindly sent me another one free of charge, part 2 will show pics of the replacement.
