First a Merry Christmas, everyone! We already took a look at the beach qualities of this figure in a recent review, as promised, I did another set for ALTER’s Super Sonico – Santa Swimsuit version figure the with focus on this figures christmas appearance in a fitting scenario.
I actually didn’t plan this shooting as a scene, but it looks little story in the first few pictures. Starting with her backside is but works better to start this as a little story as introduction.
Well, she also has a is tasteful backside ^^
Shortly before Christmas Eve, Sonico remodeled the room and is now waiting ardent for her chosen one to arrive. A few minutes later, as Sonico was lost in thought the door opens.
It’s Chosen one san, finding Sonico in a cute and also sexy christmas related outfit kneeling on the cozy floor, a bunch of presents and a small christmas tree placed all around the room.
This Super Sonico is scaled 1/7 with a height of 13 cm, she was made by two experienced sculptors, Hide and Makio Munetoshi who combined their excellent skills to create this figures sculpt. After a few delays the figure was finally released in early September 2014.
The figure convinces with a cute, slightly flirty expression, the kind smile suits her very well.
The majority of manufacturers so far have preferred to portray her with worried expressions, which partially suits her perfectly, but more happy Sonico’s show up, which is welcome.
I’ve already said most things in the previous review, to sum it up, I am really convinced by ALTER‘s first Super Sonico. She has everything a Sonico needs, an incredibly adorable face and an attractive feminine and curvy body with good sense of putting bodyfat in the right areas
The ALTER company, which was before known as a little demure, slowly increases their number of attractive, shapely figures. ALTER known as top tier manufacturer and always especially nicely, sculpted figures did a great job with these feminine exposed curves of Sonico and previously Asuka, I’m not talking about the one from Evangelion ^^.
The cute figure comes with exchangeable heads, the hood aside they are similar I would dare to say. It’s a nice feature that allows to have Sonico around in summer and winter, although it’s not like anyone is going to blame you for not changing her appearance according to the season.
Without the hood I like her a lot in the beach setup with bare shoulders and collarbones.
The hood gives Sonico a more romantic look, the oval shaped hood is surrounding her head and headphones, the head has a shorter part attached to it, which covers her shoulders.
The red part is imitating thick fur, looks a bit like slaughted sea lion to me XD Well, the texture is short fibered and a little rough, but that is the desired effect. The white hoodie border in comparison looks very soft and fluffy. Around her collar, a long black ribbon is hanging around Sonico’s body, what a nice present she would be. The attached thing gives Sonico a festive feeling on top her cute and shapely appearance, the bell is really pretty on her again.
On summary ALTER’s Super Sonico – Santa Swimsuit version is lovely and that counts for both of her display options, be it christmas or the beach, she will rock both for sure.
One of the few exceptions where a Sonico figure has no cast off option, I don’t really miss this feature here, the skin revealing areas are nice enough and it gives her sonething innocent.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures of the christmas mode of ALTER’s Sonico.
My best wishes for you wherever you celebrate christmas, with your beloved ones or alone.
I really like the removable santa coat, in fact that’s it’s removable you can display her as Santa during holiday season and bikini during summer pretty neat 😀 not naked, but like the old post I do want see sonico with reindeer horn 😛
Merry Christmas Fabienne 😀
Yeah, it’s a neat Sonico figure, even though you can’t expose her boobs, I like her a lot.
I like that idea, but I can’t bring myself to slaughter a plastic reindeer for such a purpose ;p
I want the real santa version, that one with the huge present sack.Somebody make that to a figure pleaaasssss. or maybe the lastest santa costume version that Tsuji Santa (so funny his name is Santa) just drew.
The other thing I’ve noticed is even though Sonico is an active cosplayer there hasn’t been any figure of her cosplay other characters. Like she’s already cosplaying Angela Balzak from Expelled from Paradise, before I even see any real cosers do this. They are making these official goods so I assume there should not be a copyright issue. Oh there are just so many versions of Super Sonico they will never run out of materials for a figure.
The recent Sonico Santa illustration, shows a great costume and “base” ^^
They should decrease her boobies in a possible figure though, these are nearly Pochaco dimensions.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks her hood looks kind of bloody! Other than the hood, I like this Sonic a lot. I agree that she looks much cuter with a smile than with a worried expression. And Alter always does such a good job with figures. I’ve noticed an increase in curvy figures from them in recent times too. Maybe there will be more Sonico to come? I wish she came with a few more festive accessories through, like more presents, or a huge Santa sack. I love the “Christmas card” at the end of this post. So cute. XD
Happy holidays to you.
It nearly appears like inverted skin of a skinned animal, lalala I want to forget about this “scary Santa” style.
I like that this Sonico combines a skin revealing outfit with a friendly smile, she’s actively teasing the viewer a little bit ;D. I’m so happy that my presents got me ALTER’s curvy Asuka this christmas (。⌒∇⌒)。, would be great if ALTER adds more figures like these to their Roadmap. Indeed, theey could have added something like presents to her. I love her anyway.
Thank You, nice holidays to you as well ^^
Lol, what an interesting choice of attire for Christmas there Sonico.
I’m really liking how demure she is looking. I’s probably that nice subdued smile she is sporting. At least as demure as you can be while wearing a nice revealing two piece swimsuit.
Haha, it’s something a girl should only wear in private territory. Xmas gets a whole new meaning now (￣▽+￣*).
This smile is really enchanting together with this half nude appearance, she’s a really sweet and sexy appearance.
I like what ALTER did with Sonico, for once she’s my favorite figure of Sonico. I’m still debating if I should get this figure of her, looks very upbeat （⌒▽⌒）
Santa should give children these kinds of presents xD Loving the figure. I like how curvy the ribbons are and yea, she definitely looks great with a smile :p
That might lead to an early adolescence, it’s more of a big brother present XD
The curvy ribbons, I see ( ＾∇＾) she has a lovely smile, so cute ♡
Merry Christmas, Wieselhead! I’m not late right? They did say that there are 12 days of Christmas…
“The red part is imitating thick fur, looks a bit like slaughted sea lion to me”. Lol, you have good imagination. I thought it’s just plastic though. Good to know there’s texture to it. Your photos can make good Christmas cards!! Sonico’s a great model and the setting is perfect. I always like these what I call seasonal figures where they wear Santarina costumes or some other form of festive costumes where we can bring them out for display at certain time of the year. I have a set of Lucky Star New Year nendoroid petite. Time to bring them out. >.<
Ah, it’s perfectly fine, on the 24th not everyone is online or in the mood for comments, like me （⌒▽⌒）
Haha, a few people already shared my thoughts about the eerie look.
A texture is always good, but this one is a little bit misleading ( ⚆ _ ⚆ )
Thank you very much, I think it was good to make a second more season related shooting with her.
Such figures are nice, this would also be a funny “christmas figure” ;D
Sonico has the advantage of even two options
Oh cool, I love petite Nendoroids ;D
Yep, her hood is definitely bloody, but I don’t mind considering how cute she looks. *laughs*
Haha indeed, Sonico doesn’t mind the material of her hood and gives us her sweetest smile =D
Wow this set is just amazing. Super sonico sure is in a festive mood. I love the background, props and lighting you used. <3
Ah I got a little inspiration from your elaborate settings, also when I did a lazy job, the “window” fell apart during the shooting, I was really happy with how it turned out.
Thanks for your praise, I really appreciate that from you （⌒▽⌒）
