A few weeks have passed since my last figure review, I just wasn’t in the zone, but today we will take a look at the Sorceress from Dragon’s Crown, one Wonderful Hobby Selection figure made by Good Smile Company. The figures origin is the fantasy Rpg Dragon’s Crown by ATLUS. I did not have the chance to play it, but I bought the top expensive merchandise.
The pretty figure was released on the 6th of June 2016, Sorceress is scaled 1/7 with base she measures 24 cm and was sculpted by Deira. She was sold as GSC Shop exclusive under the Wonderful Hobby Selection label, it is an expensive thing, I feel like I spent a small fortune. I decided to get her nevertheless, I liked her presentation and playful, flirty look.
Though my first impression actually wasn’t really wonderful, the figure was shipped already connected to the base. Unfortunately on it’s way to me this connection snapped and as I opened the box, the broken peg came in sight. Annoyed as I was, I politely contacted the support. It is a costumer friendly support, you send them a picture of the damage with a few written words and they will help you. Yes, GSC send me a spare base, I was glad at first. Unfortunately the spare base arrived with a broken peg, too! I was surprised, honestly, Are You Shitting Me! Well, a reasonable demand would have been to ask for another base. I did not since I considered the damage spare base as an insult and so I fixed it myself somehow.
When everything is assembled, the figure has a cool and dynamic design. The figures pose shows burlesque incluence, a bit funny and a bit teasing. she is sitting or nearly lying on her interesting base with one leg pointing at the sky and her magical wand at hand. The base is quite a little diorama, a pile of nicely painted rocks, piled up on a stone floor with a scary skeleton soldier included. Also more smaller details are to discover, like the ” missing” shoe.
The figure is really attractive with her mature lady appearance and all the sex appeal. I love her face the most, though. The position of her eyebrows and the narrow painted eyes are so sexy and show the confidence of a real lady. I also like her distinctive full and glossy lips, she has such a lovely face overall. It’s framed by this pretty, curled, red – brown hair. The strands of it look great and elaborately sculpted. I really admire the effort that the sculptor put into making a really beautifully sculpted and painted face with some sexy direction (/∇＼*)｡o○♡.
Sorceress controversial ingame design is a little different compared to the figures, her breast size was reduced a lot for this figure and somehow the face portrays her in a more cheerful way than before. Still, she’s nicely buxom with wide hips, her reduced in volume, cleavage turned out so marvellous. Apparently she has very long legs, look at these mighty thighs, too.
The Sorceress is wearing a rather classic looking witch outfit, ok it has the focus set on being seductive with a corsage accentuated by lace, fingerless gloves and also a widely flowing dark purple skirt she looks very appealing, not to forget her lovely big witch hat, it’s so cool.
After unpacking and dealing with the protective film, the figures clothes are seriously dissaranged. Getting the belt closed as it was before took more than one attempt and paint transfer happened around her waist. One other thing is that her magic wand likes to fall off easily, the connection peg is a bit too short. In my opinion the Sorceress is a nicely desinged figure, but mass production appeared a little rushed on her, base connection and assembly after getting rid of the protective film, tarnish the otherwise positive impression.
Ignoring the high price and the unexpected broken base incident one can’t deny what a beautiful figure GSC’s Sorceress is. The details and sculpting is indeed very appealing. The slightly alternative style of the Sorceress character looks really attractive, it’s a nice complex figure. Not perfect though, in the end I honestly have to say that, I expected a bit more from the Wonderful Hobby Selection name. I probably won’t try to buy another figure from that line. Although, the latest figure, Kouwan Seiki is really, really cute (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o))).
