ひさしぶり！。╭( ･ㅂ･)و ̑̑ ˂ᵒ͜͡ᵏᵎ⁾✩
Its been a while o(^◇^)o and I am glad to be back first hand with Sakura-chan again, this time with her Figma version. Yosh! Iku yo! o(≧∇≦o) In terms of packaging, SH Figuarts wins with their Clow Book box set. Well, figma though is just on its usual boxes so…We’ll get to see them closer later and of course it also comes with face plates, bases, stands and the extra hand gestures.I honestly like both however I guess majority wins with the figma as the better version. (^∇^)Especially the skirt part, the frill waves are far better detailed compared to the figuarts. Also the tone of pink color is lovelier with the figma.Also her eyes, face and hair looks prettier in the figma, much closer to the (manga).
Anyways I think most of the compliments regarding the figma is on the positive side so lets not argue with that anymore and just head straight to our favorite part… the poses! yay ≧(´▽｀)≦Loving this peace sign ≡(*′▽`)っ and this is actually my favorite when I saw the early released photos from Good Smile.…and here is the close up for the Sealing Wand.I call this, the Ice Cream po- I mean giggle pose Ｏ(≧∇≦)Ｏ
” Card created by Clow, Discard your old form and be reborn, Under the name of Sakura, The new mistresss! “Close Up of the Sakura card with The Fly on it.
And the Star Wand as well. Both wands were well-made and beautiful, its already a win win for figma having 2 wand version unlike with figuarts.Now with Kero-chan who goes perfectly with Sakura~~ ! °˖✧◝(ਠᴥਠ)◜✧˖° Kero-chan’s pose in the figma is also way cuter here I must say! And only his head is movable by the way…I had a hard time inserting Kero-chan’s stand on its base because it was a bit tight so be careful with that. Since the stand is quite long and thin there’s a risk of breaking it during the insertion. Trick is to rotate the stand while slowly pushing.And the close up of the Clow Card. Still the same with The Fly.Her wing costume attached to the back.” The key that holds the power of darkness. Reveal your true form to me. I, Sakura, command thee under convert. Release! “I am amazed that even this third Card (attached to an extra beak) has The Fly picture also. I was slightly assuming that this may be the same with its Nendoroid version where it’s just a blank. And speaking of, the pegs here are as fragile like the ones in nendo so be very careful. Although I think it’s not supposed to be removable..just the beak part not the card itself.So in preparation for the flying pose, here’s how to assemble it. There’s an extra “eye” for the wings of The Fly. In my experience (so far) it was a bit hard removing the original eye. It was actually tight as well as inserting the new ones that I had to use a hoarse paper and scrub off some of its edges. Anyways maybe it’s just on my copy of the figma so I really can’t generalized…though the effort was worth it. The flying pose looked really cool! XDThere’s also this purpose of the wings which I find really cool btw. Attached them to this extra connector and....you get yourself a tenshi! That goes for the other figmas as well too, cool right?
Also there is an opening or slit in Sakura’s skirt (both back and front) where the staff is supposed to be slid for flying pose because without that it will be difficult to let Sakura hold the staff. Or more like her hand can’t actually reach it at all lol.
So anyways that’s all of it for our figma Sakura! Did you also like her better than SH Figuarts? (ര̀ᴗര́)و ̑̑ And sorry for the spam! My blog updates has been too slow lately and will continue I guess 😦 ..too many figures cramp up actually huhu. I haven’t even started with those PVC’s from Max Factory and Tomoyo! mou!! ੨( ･᷄ ︵･᷅ )ｼ. Oh well… Alright now ending my post with these photos! Hope you enjoy~ (•̀ᴗ•́)൬༉
