Love Live Figure Challenge: Entry #3Love Live Figure Challenge: Entry #3

The challenge continues. I'm currently working on ordering items from other sites that I have never used in order to secure the final pre-order prize figures. I haven't updated the list yet, but I plan to do that over the weekend. Mainly, I just want to comment on the prices of the Wave figurines that were put on sale about a week ago.

Watanabe You
Company: Wave
ITEM #542370

Tsushima Yoshiko
Company: Wave
ITEM #542369

Okay, so I'm no pro when it comes to the character appearances from Love Live Sunshine, more so I don't even know the songs they sing or the outfits of the characters for the series. That being said, I feel the Yoshiko figure turned out a lot better. The prices of these figures seems atrociously high, considering GSC and Alter will probably jump on the bandwagon in the future.

I pray that Wave won't do all 9 of the girls, because this line's prices are a lot to deal with. Still, a challenge is a challenge, so let's keep at it.

I was curious to see how your little challenge was going as newer LL Sunshine figures are announced. Wave is certainly overpricing the figure. But I agree that Yohane is one of the best so far. What are your thought on the Furyu figures? It seems to me they are quite good for Furyu figures (good faces, dynamic poses).

I have a friend that dearly hates idols (particularly LL), but I'll wait before getting any Sunshine stuff. Too much unknown at this point and GSC/Alter could surprise us.

they did this with Muse as well.


No they don't wear these outfits in any song in the anime, these are the outfits for their first single. Their opening outfits are being made into Nendos (Riko's: ITEM #492400).

tbh I don't really like these Wave figures that much. You's expression is a little blank. I feel like the colours are strangely muted, though they may out look/turn out differently in the end. Agreed with akarin that these costumes are a poor choice since they're not that distinct from each other. μ's' BokuIma outfits are the same (though the difference in colours between their bows and ties are more obvious on μ's because their tops are white and their neck accessories are all different colours), but there only ended up being one scale of a μ's member in a BokuIma outfit.

Besides, despite the simplicity of μ's' BokuIma outfits, they still have a fair bit going on. There's the black underskirt, the ruffles on Honoka's socks, she's wearing boots, and has those lovely ruffles down her front. Aqours' Kimi no Kokoro outfits look like they're mostly made of one material, they have this sort of plastic appearance (because all the extra bits on their tops aren't sewn/glued on, they're part of the print. I first noticed this during one of their mini lives and was greatly saddened by how cheap they looked), their socks, shoes, and sleeves are relatively simple, and while they also have underskirts, there's not much to them. irl they're not the kind of skirts you swish, they just stick out, so it makes them look even plainer.

I do think the overall effect of the figures is really cute, and would definitely be attracted to them. If they were prize figures. For that price, it just feels like daylight robbery T_T

I don't like the outfits either though, hope they make some for the Mjuku Dreamer set since that's my favorite Aqua song :/

That's true. Totally forgot about that :| But I'm gonna be extremely biased rn and say that muse's looked a little better (imo tho! ;;) Ofcourse others will think otherwise and that's cool lol. Yeah I think the Mijuku Dreamer set is really pretty too! Those would have been a better choice as well. But considering how much Aquarium merch there's out already, one would think there'd be some bigger figures of them announced already, and not only those GKs that volks are making -__- search.php?root... but hey the series is still fresh, so anything can come out lol

akarin (1 anno/i fa) #18131824I'm not being a hater or anything (I like the outfits...not too much lol), but these outfits are what one may consider their "basic" costumes from the series. They actually made these into "Rare" cards in the game--the lowest rarity. We usually see these type of cards be made into Prize figures instead, so I'm really taken aback as to why Wave would choose these basic outfits to be made into high quality scale figures when there's a pretty substantial amount of prettier and much more intricate costumes in existence. Alter choose SRs, the 3rd highest rarity in the game as of now (before they were the 2nd highest rarity), for their line, and they're all unique--not the same type of costume. Heck, if Wave was gonna choose Rare outfits, I think the Aquarium set would have been a much more beautiful and much more unique choice, in a sense that they're easier to distinguish among each other. I'd rather wait it out and see what Alter makes. I'm not putting my money on GSC since they NEVER finished what they began. They stopped at Honoka and that was it. So disappointed.
