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.

Final Words

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))).

  1. Very good. Thanks for information and pictures.

  2. This is a lovely figure with equally lovely photos. I paid no attention at all to any of the Dragon’s Crown figures since the proportions of the characters were too exaggerated for my liking, but I like how they interpreted the sorceress here. The fussiness of assembly and the busted peg would annoy the hell out of me, though (your experience in fixing up the peg is useful to me since I’ve got an old Max Factory figure here with a peg that broke off in the figure’s foot – the figure’s wearing high heels so I guess I’ll need to be really careful while drilling the peg out).

    • Thank you ^^. The sculptors design changed made a better Sorceress out of her,
      she turned out more youthful and flirty, the reasonable buxom proportions are more flattering for her overall.
      After the the size reduction her boobs still are nicely big ♡
      Yeah, I hate to deal with broken pegs and stuff, it makes a figure useless without repair.
      Fortunately it didn’t happen that often to me. Oh damn, good luck the repair.

  3. I agree with you – I too like her face the most. It’s very pretty, sexy and seductive especially with that wink there! The way her hair let dropped in full volume also complements her face actually.

  4. Sucks to hear about the broken base… hopefully no such surprises are awaiting me as I haven’t unboxed mine yet…

    Of all the sorceress figures this looks like the best sculpt. This interpretation of the character design is beautiful whereas the other figures just look kind of stupid XD

    Great job on these photos!

    • Oh yeah, but it is all stable now. A few people had luck and received a flawless figure, good luck then ^^.
      The previously released figures all missed something, Max Factory really captured her seductive character,
      she reminds me of Jessica Rabbit 😀 Thank you very much (o✪‿✪o)

  5. I like this one http://wieselhead.de/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Sorceress-Dragons-Crown-GSC-Wonderful-Hobby-Selection-081-560×840.jpg very good editing XD there are skeletons on her base too ahaha maybe a guy just get her soul drained by Ms sorceress 😛

    • Thank you very much. I didn’t use a flash on purpose, I think only working with lamps paid off this time 😉
      Ahahaha I never thought about that possibility, though one of her abilities is summoning skeletons.

  6. It was my Yami figure (https://deluscar.wordpress.com/2014/03/01/to-love-ru-darkness-konjiki-no-yami-swimsuit-ver-by-alphamax/)

    “Often damages happen like this. the peg on the base snaps and the peg is stuck in the foot.”
    Yeah, this is exactly the case! The peg broke, and half of the peg got stuck in the foot’s socket. I would try your method, but that means her foot will have two holes by then :/

  7. How do you fix the peg? One of my figure’s peg broke too, and I have put her back to the box ever since :\ And her bust size was reduced in the figure? I honestly wouldn’t even have realized it, lol. Then again, I barely even played the game. Amazing figure otherwise though, just sad to hear about the peg incident.

    • Oh it was relatively easy, since the connection is rather big, I drilled a hole in the base and one hole in the figure *SCARY!” then I took a metal rod that tightly fits in both holes, I shortened the metal rod to a fitting length and connected everything together. So may I ask which figure was damaged and what damage it is? Often damages happen like this. the peg on the base snaps and the peg is stuck in the foot. I will try to think of a solution when I have the informations. Yes, I would say the figures bust was reduced by 40% haha. Yeah, she’s lovely, putting the annoying damage aside.
