Today the center of attention is Moco, Moco is a character from the anime Captain Earth.
The figure was released on the 17th July 2015 and manufacturered by Embrace Japan.
I ordered the Dengeki special version, which comes with exchangeable arm and head.
This is my first time receiving a figure from Embrace Japan, I’m grateful that a proper figure manufacturer was going to make a figure from an anime I love. Often it never happened.
There are animes I really like and there are animes I get crazy about, Captain Earth is the latter kind, I totally enjoyed it to the max. Captain Earth is a sci-fi action anime made by studio Bones, at first it appears like the typical mecha action show, but soon it focus shifts on the characters and the more complex scenario. The details of the story are rather difficult to explain in a post that is supposed to be a figure review, so in short Awesome!
In anime I totally enjoy things like friendship, first love, group dynamics and youthful spirit.
Moco is one of the villains of the Planetary Gears, a group of certain alien species in a genetically engeneered human bodies, created on earth. The Planetary Gears are like “Team Rocket”, although Moco and her companion Amarok do have more personality and dignity.
Moco is lovely villain, while the other Planetary Gears are pretty much ignorant towards their human shell, Moco shows interest in the human body and enjoys her human shape.
Aside from her evil intentions, Moco is a fun character, often portrayed as flirty, seductive and playful. When wearing such an outfit with pride she probably is eccentric to the bone, too.
On first look the figure of Moco appears somewhat small, she’s scaled 1/8 and measures 20 cm in height, also the slender body with long legs adds to the impression of small. That aside the sculptor kuma created a wonderful looking figure with fine and nice details all around.
Moco has pretty pink hair with voluminous shoulder long twintails, the semi transparent rings look quite cool. The bangs could have been better integrated into the hair, but’s thats just a minimal letdown. Overall the hair is nicely done with sufficent details at the back and front.
The figure turned out really good also in regards of the face, Moco is wearing her utmost attractive, confident and also playful expression, the beautiful eyes really stand out.
The Dengeki special version arrived with a second face with alternative expression, which features a more lustful gaze, either way she’s wearing ckoker with a little heart attached.
Moco has a stylish and skin revealing outfit with hotpants, gloves, a short jacket with high collar, stockings and suspender straps, I see elements of circus and pin up in the design.
The color palette mainly consists of shiny dark purple and matte pink, which creates an interesting contrast to her skin. A cute striped top is carrying her noble bosom.
Her pushed up cleavage and how her suspenders stretch over her lovely thighs is really hot.
With her pose Moco amplifies her sparkling, hot body. The arched back and the tilted pelvis really give her a striking pose. From backside her buttocks are slightly revealed underneath her pants, Moco has no big butt, nevertheless it looks sporty and fitting to Moco’s appearance.
Her matte black base would win no innovational award, but it holds the figure fix in position.
Moco turned out beautiful, I say Embrace Japan did a wonderful job with this figure.
With the smaller end of the 1/8 scale, fringe placement and simple base it’s not perfect, but the character of Moco was portrayed very well as playful seductress also an appealing pose was chosen to underline her attitude. The optional parts of the Dengeki special version are really nice and change the atmosphere of this figure completely. Moco is a very good figure, nice looking and without any mayor flaws.
