Hi everyone! This is my first article so I don't really know where I'm going for now, but I love taking pictures of my figures and sharing my love for them, so hopefully some of you will enjoy this!

https://cutekawaiiresources.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/tumblr_lm6rmpkysc1qfoi4t.gif

Today I will be reviewing this scale figure ITEM #396841 that I'm sure everyone knows about. When I first saw the pictures I completely fell in love and pre-ordered it right away. It was one of the most beautiful figures I had seen and such a great hommage to my childhood heroine! The release date got pushed back to October 2017, and when it finally came out I was about to move to a new appartement so I didn't have time to unbox her until a few weeks ago.

What first strikes me is how beautiful the box is. I'm a sucker for nice packaging, so much work goes into making pretty boxes and Goodsmile did not disappoint on that one. Since it had been waiting for a while to be opened, the exterior of the box did get damaged (which ugh! A nightmare of mine), so I didn't take any pictures of it.

Ugh, curse you blurry pic I only noticed now

I love the Sakura Card, such a nice touch!

She took me some time to get out of the box and assembled, there was a lot of plastic to protect her dress, especially the little stars at the bottom of the skirt which I'm terrified of accidentally breaking.

The figure in itself is so cute! I love the colors, the differences in texture like with the shimmery gloves that are probably one of my favorite part. I gotta admit I wasn't the biggest fan of her new hair color but here the painting job is so clean on the face and hair, it's impossible for me not to like it. The see-through fabric is transcribed really well and really gives the illusion it's actually floating.

One of my favorite things on figures are fluffy petticoats, and boy was I happy about that one! It looks so fluffy and textured, it gives a lot of volume to the figure.

The base is one of the prettiest I've seen. It reminds me a lot of this Sheryl Nome figure ITEM #144293. I'm a sucker for bases with cogs and mechanical elements, as well as astronomy themed figures! It really ties the whole thing together and you can spot this figure from a good distance.

The only downside I would point it is how thin fragile the brown base seems, I was a bit scared when moving her around, I wasn't sure it would properly hold the weight of the figure. Some of the elements can be moved as well like the planets at the bottom of the base but they are also very fragile so I didn't get too wild.

Here you can find more close-ups under the spoiler:

She now stands on top of my Detolf display in the living room! She will soon be joined by ITEM #464229 who'll go on top of my girlfriend's Detolf on the other side of the TV. We may have furnished our living room based on these figures... Ahem!

So I guess this concludes my first article! I hope you guys enjoyed it and it wasn't too boring. I also hope that if you have any doubts about getting this figure for yourself, this review helped you make a decision, and hopefully convinced you!

For people who enjoy reading reviews: what are you looking for in a figure review? Do you enjoy a lot of pictures or only a few chosen ones? What are the things you'd like to know about the figure or about the owner's opinion of it? What information are you looking for when reading about a figure you do not own?

Feel free to let me know about any suggestions, I'd love to do more reviews in the future. You guys can also correct me as English is only my second language and I might get a bit lost writing ahah. I will see you guys soon for a new article (。•̀ᴗ-)✧

relo-sama (7 dag(en) geleden) #45232796I'm DYING to see the final product, the Clear Card arc has gorgeous outfits and this one promises to be beautiful. They did a great job with the see-through fabric on the Stars Bless You so I'm looking forward to the new one, just not sure yet if I'll have the space for it.
I know!! I was still living with my mom when I received her and the look on her face when I received the box is something I'll never forget...

I think with this figure it was the first time my mom agreed that something was actually really pretty. Now my younger brother is getting into figure collecting so she has two of us now LOL

I cannot wait to see the finished product and to be able to preorder it. The nendoroid came our great but that first opening outfit is just sooo pretty. The second one is okay but I've never been a huge fan of alice in wonderland so thats probably why i like it less.

If they make a figure with that frog outfit I'll be SOO happy. Even if its just a prize figure. That outfit was one of my favs just so cute and just gimmie.

relo-sama (7 dag(en) geleden) #45232589Ahah merci beaucoup! Effectivement vu que je parle toujours en anglais ici ça peut porter à confusion, et j'oublie souvent qu'il y a d'autres français en interagissant avec.
J'ai tellement hâte qu'on reçoive Yue, on bave dessus depuis le proto, j'essayerais de faire une review quand il sera la ♥


Mdr Oui moi aussi ! Mon pseudo éclaire certains sur ma nationalité mais généralement il n'y a pas de moyen de le savoir hormis le statut... Et encore ! xD J'ai été surprise une fois d'avoir une réponse mp en français ! lol
Sinon j'attends avec impatience ta review !! *o* La figurine de Yue, outre le fait que j'adore ce perso (en fait maintenant que j'y pense, et c'est rare, j'aime tous les persos de Sakura ! ^^), est magnifique et le représente parfaitement ! <3
Bonne journée et bon appétit ! Je m'y mets enfin perso, 12h31... Il serait temps ! mdr xD Il ne pleut pas, réjouissons-nous ! (Oui je sais, ça craint de parler de la pluie et du beau temps ! C'est généralement quand on ne sait plus quoi dire ! lol Pour ma part, c'est surtout pq je suis rentrée trempée des courses dans la semaine... T'es ravie de le savoir, hein ? XD mdr)

noctisity (8 dag(en) geleden) #45140216Thank you for the review! The lighting on the photos was bright and clear so it was easy to see the details on the figure. It was also easy to understand what you were referring to in the photos.
I have a minor suggestion if you don't mind: could you include some photos of the backside of the figure next time? I know that once the figure is on display, you'll barely ever see that side, but for someone who won't ever own the figure (example: me lol), it's nice to get a 360 degree view since the final product often varies from the product photos posted by the manufacturer/store.
(P.S. Super jealous of the Eyeshield 21 figure you have!! That is one of my grails. *^*)


Thank you very much! I'll definitely take that into consideration, it slipped out of my mind to take pictures of the back.

The Eyeshield 21 statue was my absolute grail and I still can't believe I own it. It took some time and a loooot of money but I love it so much, I'll try to do an article on it at some point. Hope you'll manage to get your hands on your grail as well, it's so worth it!

ChibiSaturn (8 dag(en) geleden) #45131359Are you looking forward to seeing the painted version of the scale Good Smile is doing of her Clear Card OP dress???
I remember getting her and letting her sit in the box for months because I can nowhere to put her & it was cheaper to buy a whole curio than an acrylic case to put her in. So, she had to wait under my bed until I was able to go to ikea. She is sooo beautiful though and did not disappoint. God, that box is so huge that it's a huge pain to store though.
