A few moon cycles ago, I ordered a figure from Big In Japan, which led me into a dark realm called Touhou. This figure happened to be Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji, who arrived a few weeks ago.
Due to French family being over, going to the cabin, and watching a whole Let’s Play for Majora’s Mask, I was unable to do the review until now. So, before I start a few things to add:
– Weekly Lick will start again really soon (I’m guessing in a few weeks);
– A bunch of preorders may be made in the next few days.
Anyway, here is the review:
Yuyuko comes with:
– 6 shoulder parts
– 4 arms
– 3 faces
– 1 open and 1 closed fan
– A bunch of hands
– Replaceable hat
– 4 butterflies
– 2 glow-in-the-dark ghosts
Since her dress is close to touching the ground, it’s somewhat useless to have extra legs.
As well, the stand is amazing!
For accessories, Yuyuko gets 10/10.
Now on to shipping. Yuyuko arrived in excellent condition in a bow with sharp edges C: (Bubble wrap works!)
Shipping gets 10/10.
When it comes to posability, Yuyuko’s shoulders work miracles. You can make millions of poses because of them, and because of that, posability gets 10/10.
Next is paint. The nice pastel colours really go great with Nendoroids. I have yet to find a mistake or smudges. Paint gets 10/10.
Next is sculpt. The hat’s detail is amazing, it’s stunning! I sometimes just pick it up off her head and admire it for a few minutes. The flow of her kimono was also done greatly. Sculpt gets 10/10.
Next is playability. Sadly, since she doesn’t have any real weapons, Yuyuko might become one of those “boring” figures after a while, where I cannot find a pose to put her in, but for now, I love all of the poses. The fact that you can use other faces as well to make certain hungry or HOLY-CRAP-FOOD! poses increases her playability. Playability gets 10/10.
In conclusion, this is the best figure I have bought yet, beating Myon-chan by 0.2 points. Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji gets a perfect 100%.
I highly recommend this figure to those who are fans of the Touhou series and to those who love amazing Nendoroids. I bought this figure BEFORE I was a fan of Touhou. How did that happen?
