Amie-Grand had some nice figures at Treasure Festa with my personal favorite being Asuka. I like the concept, with her chilling on a really cool NERV-themed base. You can also see a polystone 1/6-scale Chuubou Sonken from Ikk...

Tomopop Review: Kanu Unchou Nekomimi Maid Ver.

Feb 01 // Colette Bennett
Figure Name: Kanu Unchou Nekomimi Maid Ver.Figure Maker: GriffonRetail Price: ¥8,500 (US$104.02)Available at: Hobby Link JapanNow, you are going to laugh at me, but I am going to share this with you anyway. My opening sentence was originally going to be "Let's check out Kanu Unchou's box." I swear, if I had a boss, he'd have fired me a long time ago. Anyway, let's see her "packaging". It's a cute box and works well with her pink, cutesy theme. See more shots of it in the gallery if you like. I might not be a Kanu fan, but even I have have to admit this figure is very cute. The details of the outfit are sweet, I like her expression, and I really dig how the ponytail swoops around the body here, creating depth around her already-bodacious figure. Here's the back view. Damn, girl ... how about that booty? We'll get a better look at it later, but nice job on that, Griffon! You can see side views of the figure in the gallery, should you want to check those out.Here's the nameplate on the base. Simple, but clean and handsome. The base is a simple black plastic with an oval shape. Get up close, and Kanu is still cute, but you can see a few very minor imperfections in her hair if you look closely. However, they are barely perceptible unless you are shooting her with a macro lens or examining her with a magnifying glass, so it's not really bad enough to complain about.The breasts are my least favorite part of the figure. They are ridiculously large, and I am not a fan of that on figures unless it's done really well. This isn't bad, but there's something kind of busy about the bra itself showing through the transparent part of the top I don't like. That's just a style thing from me though -- the sculpt is still decent.This is one detail about this figure I really like a lot -- the transparent plastic on the skirt ruffle. In the light you can see this really well, and it adds a little extra depth to the piece. If you want a better look at the thong Kanu is sporting under this thing, check out the gallery to see it (it's semi NSFW).Clean work on Kanu's hairpiece here. Paint looks good, and it acts a subtle highlighter for that swooping hair, which as I mentioned before is one of my favorite parts of the figure. Nice bow detail on the stockings here. Up really close, you can see the paint looks a tiny bit gloppy, but once again, not too bad. Shoes look great, detail is very clean here. I mean, it'd be a crappy review without a butt shot. No doubt about it, Miss Unchou's rear is looking good. You have to spin her around to get this view though, so displaying her facing front is still pretty safe for work.Aw. Her expression is nice. Sure beats half the figures I've seen of her where she looks ultra slutty. Call me crazy, but I prefer this sweeter face.Overall, she's a pretty girl. The quality of this figure is not quite as high as that of an Alter or Good Smile figure, but my complaints are minor and nothing that is majorly noticeable. If you are trying to build a Kanu army, you may as well add her to it. If you've never owned a figure of Miss Unchou, there are better ones out there, but this one wins big on cute factor and a certain sweetness that all the other versions of her lack. If that's your thing, I'd say this one is worth a buy.[Thanks to Hobby Link Japan for the review sample]

I never thought the day would come when I would willingly review a figure of Ikkitousen's Kanu Unchou. I mean, she is one of the most overdone characters in the figure world, and even though she is pretty, I'm sort of tired o...
