Hi people, I hope your christmas holidays went smoothly and your ready for the starting 2015.
After we already looked at the financial aspect and other data of my figure collecting this year, I want to show you a post, where we take a last look at the figures I’ve reviewed in 2014.
I borrowed the idea from Bakayaro.de I like the idea looking back at the figures and remembering the things I did in this year and all the different pictures as a result of it.
The vertical pictures I liked the most are used as representer of the 19 (+1) reviews I made this year, I put them in inverted order from January to December, if you like you can look at a certain review again by following the links or just take a look at the short summary here.
Super Sonico – PKG version – Orchid Seed
With writing a little story with Sonico involved, I made a fool out of myself in the review ;D.
The big scale figure is actually really pretty, I still love her standing pose and expression, my pictures are rather medicore in the first 2014 review, I should take pictures of her once again.
Super Sonico – Sweets Time version – FuRyu
I was again a little surprised by the quality of my second Sonico prize figure, also her photogenic level was quite high. FuRyu produces a lot of different Sonico prize figures.
Maeda Keiji – ALTER
This was an excellent figure of this year, Maeda has a lovely face, beautiful and also very skimpy clothes that make her show a lot of nicely sculpted skin. Her quality is incredible even for ALTER. I’ve build a bamboo forest set for her and the pictures turned out quite rewarding.
Yagyuu – Vertex
Her promo pictures were looking so nice, unfortunately they changed her skin texture in the final product. I wasn’t that satisfied by her, still she looked good and her quality was quite ok.
Sallya – Max Factory
She was a really sexy figure that Sallya, they gave her a teasing pose and cool appearance.
I really liked her slender body and the outfit. What I didn’t like was her peg less design, it’s dangerous you know. In pictures and from close up she looks far better than on a shelf.
Araragi Tsukihi – GSC
Tsukihi is not only my favorite Bakemonogatari figure to date, but also my favorite GSC figure this year, her facial expression and body language are fantastic. I love the bob cut hair, her thoughtful deep eyes, the beautiful outfit and the elaborate base, well GSC put more effort into the red bar frame work, than in the plain white disk under. Anyway she’s just beautiful.
Alleyne – Orchid Seed
I was quite impressed by Orchid Seeds 1/6 scaled figure. The pale Elf has amazing body sculpting and looks very attractive, the leaf bikini has a nice level of detail but can also be removed, to see more of her. She also has a very pretty face with blue eyes and a little blush.
Rin Shibuya – GSC
From a few angles her face looks a little off, but she’s actually really photogenic in her lovely outfit, when you shoot her in a stage or music video like setting, she really starts to shine.
Dragon Nest – Sorceress – GSC
My anticipation for her to be released was higher than my enjoyment of the figure, I still like her a lot, since she has a beautiful face and a nicely sculpted body, the outfit is also great, personally I don’t like the shiny finish on several parts that much.
Shimamura Uzuki – GSC
I don’t know why I’ve ordered another Cinderella girl, Uzuki is really cute and I liked her skirt, but she has nothing of Rin’s elegance, she looks a bit like a weirdo with herr proportions squeezed in a little girls outfit XD Well, I actually liked her dress and closed eyes.
Cerberus – Max Factory
Aww demon girls, I love them. The dancing Cerberus was definitely one of my coolest figures 2014. Her shiny armor and other parts of her outfit look really stunning. The cute girl is really my type, with nice hips, thighs and not too long legs. Unfortunately, she had no exchangeable hands as extra parts, it would have been a great option, since she has human hands.
Sena Kashiwazaki – swimsuit version – Gift
Gift made a quite lovely figure of Sena, she’s very big and attractive, not only because of her well endowed curves. She’s also very expressive for a 1/4 scaled figure with shading, beautiful hair and a sweet, happy face. To be honest her face doesn’t look good from all angles. From the right angles, though she looks very convincing. It was really fun to take pictures of him.
Suguha Kirigaya – ALTER
I can’t remember how often this figure was delayed before her release. The quality is very good and Suguha is a good figure, but unfortunately she is not a very interesting in that pose and with a scared expression on her face. Suguha deserved something different to portray her personality and “little” sister role.
Ikaros – Kotobukiya
Ikaros is also very nice as figure with an appealing color combination and nice looking hair, the slightly sad puppy eyes and the shy pose make her quite adorable and the bare shoulders together with ample boobs cleavage have some sex appeal. The wings look so cute on her.
Super Sonico – Santa Swimsuit version – ALTER
Oh I just love ALTER’s Sonico, she might be my favorite Sonico this year. The friendly and flirty facial expression together with her lovely, soft curves. Have I mentioned that I totally adore her strong, nicely sculpted thighs, she’s already super sweet with her beach look, but the additional christmas option convinced me even more.
Super Sonico – Cheer ★ Girl – Orchid Seed
This Sonico has a striking presence with her dynamic pose, that presents her at the end of a jump, nearly floating in midair and shows a radiant smile, she looks quite big for a 1/6 scaled figure, so you can notice all her cuteness and the pretty details clearly even from a distance.
Harada Makoto – Alpha x Omega
I really like the Yamato nurse, she’s a sweet little thing, her beautiful face is framed by her attractive short hairstyle. Also the lovely retro style of her shiny pink uniform is great, cheers!
Igawa Asagi – Milestone
I played surprise as I ordered this Hentai heroine from Milestone, without knowing what to expect. Fortunately the manufacturer did a quite good job with the suit and her face. I could complain a little about her beach ball shaped titties and that her head is slightly too small.
Asuna – Titania version – Max Factory
I nearly missed to order this great figure, she’s without much exaggeration really fantastic.
The innocent white dress combined with the beautiful yet sorrowful expression make her a beautiful figure, the best part for me is her gorgeous face. Max Factory did an excellent job.
So this were the 19 reviewed figures this year, so which reviews/ figure from 2014 did you like the most from here?
In case you want to know about my personal favorite figure of 2014, it’s definitely Asuna, she passes all my criteria I expect from a great figure.
This was the last post this year, see you in 2015…
