So this post will be dedicated to showcasing the replacement Yoko, and comparing it to the original one. Fortunately this one came in one piece, and is less flawed than the first.
So here she is, on the Pasta n’ Sauce:
Looking much better than the first one – no snapped noodle, and the paint has reached the “corner” of her pants. Sadly the grey smudge just above her stocking is a mark like the other one had, but on her backside.
Here she is from the back:
Nothing here to complain about. The tiny dot on her hair is fluff.
From the top:
She looks better from this angle too – none of her back is shiny like the previous, studs are better painted on this one too (but not perfect – would be a difficult bit to paint tbh).
And finally the rear shot:
No random grey dots here. I think most people will find this shot agreeable :P.
Now to compare the two:
Seeing double! Feel free to play spot the difference :).
Here’s the undersides:
Note how the one on the right is slightly less attached together properly, but the new one has a bit of stray white paint on her pants.
Not sure if it’ll really show in the above shot without zooming in, but the back of the new one is attached better. Also the belt is painted better on the second (left).
Lastly, here are two backsides to contrast and compare:
Yep, comparing… If you get to this paragraph, well done! Also I’m pleased with the replacement, and is more in line with what I hoped for. It’s not flaw-free, but for the price, you can’t really expect that. Still would strongly recommend using these as display pieces only, but it is a second lottery if you’re going to get one that looks like it should have passed QC or not.
