Is it itchy anywhere…?
Hi people today I will show you the review of the Super Sonico Bath Time version figure.
The figure is scaled 1/6, together with the bath tub she has a height of 25 cm, this Sonico was manufactured by Native and released in June 2012. She was sold as exclusive item, so I had to order with my proxy buyer of choice Tokyohunter, who turned out as very reliable again.
I love bathing and I love Sonico, so there was no way I could pass on this darling.
This one is my first figure from Native, their slogan is “nude and creative” and they don’t lie.
The figure arrived in creatively styled box, included in the package is Sonico ^^, a quarter bath tub, three little bathing friends, a semi transparent and a white rubber towel, a foam part, parts to keep the figure in position. and a postcard with the illustration the figure is based on.
Face & Hair
As I’ve said a few times I prefer Sonico with a happy face expression, here Sonico shows a shy and surprised expression. Even though it is no happy face expression, it is very well done. It is one of the best faces on a Sonico figure so far. Overall it’s on par with the face of Sonico bondage – Candy Pink version with more blush it would be even better. Zenko gave her big expressive eyes and a beautiful open mouth with a detailed depth to it, also a glossy lower lip was added.
Unfortunately she doesn’t show the same amount of blush at her cheeks like on the illustration, as figure she only has faint blush marks, it depends on the light how good you can notice them.
The hair is also very well done with the many single strands of her hair hanging down, the wet look is done in an convincing manner. There is the typical light pink to dark pink gradiant paintjob. Sonico doesn’t take off her headphones, even when she’s cleaning herself, strange isn’t it?
Body & Pose
Native’s Sonico is one of the bigger 1/6 figures out there, not as big as Astraea from Plum, but she is big piece of PVC, in that size the body and the pretty face have a very nice appearance.
Sonico has a bright skintone, under certain light conditions it differs between slightly pink and a bright sand like color, areas with stronger shading were applied over her boobs, her hips, the lower belly and the part where her leg bends. Overall a natural looking skin tone was created.
In this figure adaption Sonico appears less chubby than the Bondage version for example, she’s nearly petite when you look at her slender arms and the nice collarbones, the only more meaty parts are her F-cup boobs and the thighs. I like her proportions and she looks very attractive.
Sonico covers herself with a towel which is made of soft rubber like material, the semi transparent towel resembles a wet look and the white one has a dry look. Of course it wouldn’t be a Native figure without some nudity, the towel comes off after you’ve separated her left arm.
Now her Big Bangs are revealed, they are nicely shaped and have pink pointy nipples.
It’s nice how it seems like she supports her boobs with her left arm. Sonico also has a sculpted vagina which is hidden behind a semi transparent plastic part which resembles bathing foam, it can’t be taken off without force cause it’s glued under her leg. Maybe Nitro+ was against showing their official mascot with a bare beaver. Personally, I don’t mind keeping a little modesty, though.
I have heard many good things about the quality of Native figures and it seems to be true, the sculpting of Sonico’s body is detailed and smooth, seam lines or rough areas can’t be found.
Now to the base; Sonico sits on a white quarter cutted bath tub, which is her base. I’m not sure if she enters the the tub or leaves it, but anyway it was a cool idea to make a Sonico figure like that, it’s a creative combination of posing and base. The tub has one fancy designed golden foot and three black simple feet, inside the bath tub there is a dirt rim paintjob applied.
Sonico is supported via a peg and a metal rod with a clamp that holds her left leg. The right leg rests on the tub. It is a stable solution and the walls of the tub hide these supporting parts.
One detail that dissapoints a little is the quarter cut shape. While setting up the figure and the base, I noticed that it restricts the way to display her quite a bit, cause it leaves many open sides. In my opinion it would have been better to equip Sonico with a small full bath tub instead.
This Sonico turned out very well, the bathing themed pose and tub base, also the exceptionally beautiful face and the sexy body are a nice combination which make this figure something special.
As the Sonico fan I am, Im very happy to own such a nice high quality 1/6 scaled figure of her.
Aside from slightly too faint blush marks and only a quarter of a bathing tub, there is not much to complain about, it’s my second favorite figure of Sonico so far.
Thx for reading, see you soon with another review.
