Guess Who’s back?
This longer break wasn’t intentional, I have to blow the dust from my Dashboard.
That was a nice long break wasn’t it? Sometimes its nice to break free from your usual routine and do something else, in my case nothing. to my excuse I thought about doing a post, about my holidays, my Azone Doll or my Kancolle adventures. I decided to make a new figure review.
It´s about my long awaited Sorceress figure, not from Dragon’s Crown but Dragon Nest, just use Dragon with anything and you have a cool Game Title.
Dragon Nest is a free online MMOPRG from Korea, it is available in many regions by now.
Sorceress is an official class inside the game, she is supposed to be a smart and sexy tease.
At first this figure was ought to be an exclusive version for the Chinese market only, after some time some concerns about this were raised, GSC and the license owner made another version available for everyone. I was really happy about this decision, finding a chinese shop for her turned out surprisingly difficult, if not impossible and I really wanted to have her.
I will try to break a bit away from my usual review pattern, recently I felt the urge to change it with less words, even though this is easier said than done. I guess I failed this time as well.
more about the figure
This Sorceress figure was released on the 2nd July 2014, she is scaled 1/8 with a height of 20 cm she is in balance with other figures of this category. As well as the exclusive Tenshi figure she was modeled by Usagi. The figure shows a detailed face and is rather based on the artwork than the Ingame design, it was this certain aspect about this figure that won me over.
Sorceress is without doubt a very flamboyant figure, with her pointy ear hood and the jagged decorations painted in slightly shiny red, also her eccentric sexy dress is quite an eyecatcher. Her color scheme reminds me of an poisonous insect, so it emits a sense of danger.
Like so often with video game based characters, this figure has certain details, that distinguish her from the general anime look. The most obvious part in that regard would be her face, it shows a more mature feminine charm. This character has smaller eyes, a mouth with accentuated, detailed lips and a pretty chin. In comparison to her slender body the lady has a relatively big head, it is nicely rounded and shows soft, natural looking facial features.
You actually can’t see much of her hair, her hood and her headgear are hiding a lot of it, pink, pointy strands are showing underneath. Not much of shading at the ends, still it looks nice.
Sorceress is wearing an interesting kind of body suit, her top looks really great with these vertical folds, wrinkles and gray color, her butt is fully covered which looks cute from the front though she is not the most modest lady in the realm and shows some more skin all around.
Attached to the sides of her butt she has a cape, maybe because of aerodynamic advantages the amount of material appears quite economic. The insides of her clothes are all painted in camel brown an appealing contrast to her gaudy colors on the outside.
Several elements on the outfit resemble parts of a dragon, like the small wings on her back or the things at her head. Her pretty legs are equipped with stockings, they have a smexy pattern with golden highlights and end in her futuristic boots. With the red heels they suit her quite well and give the figure a dominant accent.
The Sorceress is an attractive lady, she has a slim waist with wide hips, I really like the transition from thighs to hips there, also her ample boobs look very nice. With her hips pushed to the right, knees turned inwards and her bend over torso there is some dynamic tension in the pose.
The small fingers on her right hand are really cute and look elaborate with the other hand she is holding the magical wand. It looks good and the end has a transparent piece incorporated which adds a nice touch to the item. Her small companion is a bat, with the “scars” it’s a plushie or a Frankenstein like creature, the lively bat is also wearing a ribbon around the neck.
As nice a figure can be, being flawless is very rare. As much as I like the Sorceress, the figure didn’t turn out as refined as other GSC figures in recent times, in particular the transitions from the attached parts (cape, arm plates) to the figure could have been a bit smoother.
The different choices of color textures appear a bit distracting on close view. It’s a matter of fact than shiny plastic tends to look cheap, for some reason the pieces on her arm give me that impression, but these are just minor details it is nevertheless a very nice figure with an appealing design and luckily there are no major flaws in terms of craftsmanship.
Maybe my initial expectations were too high, but on the bottomline, I like this figure a lot, she has an unusual style and a beautiful expressive face. They also gave her an attractive body with curves at the right spots. I’m grateful that GSC decided to make this figure available worldwide, there would have always been a feeling of regret if I wouldn’t have been able to get her. I bought her as standard run, not as exclusive run and so her price was fair enough.
When you like fantasy related figures in general this Sorceress should be worth your attention from my side she gets an honest recommendation.
