    victorviper (1 mese/i fa) #39276577Now that you mention it, there are subtle differences between illustration and figure that I hadn't really paid much attention to (her mouth and stomach are slightly different), but I'm not sure how they could have addressed the eyebrows in 3D, short of making parts of her hair semi-transparent. That would have probably made the figure even more expensive, so I'm okay with GSC omitting that.
    It's funny how one figure with a certain concept (in this case the lingerie wedding) leads to a second, and a third, and next thing you've got a whole shelf with the same theme!


    I´ve seen some solutions, such as painting the eyebrows on top or making it semi-transparent, but for this figure what I think would have been nice is if the bangs were placed a bit differently, so you could see more of the eyebrows. But it could be personal preference of course. :)

    I was actually more surprised to wedding lingerie figures getting released so much nowadays, rather than you buying them, haha!

    Maakie (1 mese/i fa) #39242490Nice review! Although I do have to say that with this figure, some of the charm of the illustration did not really translate that well to 3D in my opinion. She seems to have a bit less tummy and personally I would have liked her eyebrows to be more visible to get that actual 'flustered' look. :) I do appreciate how her bangs indeed look more messy than most of her other figures. Anyhow I really like her lingerie/dress and it's an astonishing figure with the huge setup and many details in the outfit. :) Also, her thighs and behind, daaaaaaaaamn! Because of this review I also noticed you've got quite a big lingerie bride collection now! And actually, it's interesting how much figures from different franchises in this subject have been released in the last few years. :)

    victorviper (2 mese/i fa) #37259833I suppose that's true, but I don't know if I trust my artistic skills to make anything that would be substantially more attractive than the bulky stair base :).
    I guess what I was thinking is that it can't possibly cost *that* much more to make a simple printed flat disc base, and with a figure like this, people might very well be willing to pay an extra 500 (?) yen for an alternate base.


    Indeed. It probably cost very little and I would be the first to be happy with it. I know I'm in the minority, but if every figure came with a nondescript clear acrylic base (such as the one used on prototype) I would be in Heaven. I like when bases are low key because it's easier to display together figures from various brands and origins, but it's a personal taste I probably acquired by working in a museum for several summer and having to help putting together some artefact displays.

    On another hand, it would be interesting if an independent company provided universal acrylic bases using the popular metal pin system. I don't know how they would ensure compatibility between brands, but it would be awesome. In my case I have the skills to make custom bases, but I lack the guts to trash prepainted models.

    RockGodItachi (2 mese/i fa) #37161127A stellar review! I have this beauty coming and thanks to this I now know what to expect which is both a good and bad thing! Lol Basically to save myself shipping her separately I decided to combine her with my June AmiAmi order of GSC Ram and 5 Nendo's and urgh yeah that shipping and price was extreme and looking at that box I can see why, customs is going to kill me! :( Anyway I digress, I'm bowled over with this review, I really can't wait to get her and I will take note of your advice, thanks for taking the time to write and share this it's much appreciated! :D

    Thanks for the comment. I hope you enjoy your Sonico when she arrives :).

    sailormatlac (2 mese/i fa) #37176689It could probably be done elegantly using commercial base available to figure builders. The way she is pinned on the socle wouldn't be that hard to replicate in a satisfying manner.

    victorviper (2 mese/i fa) #37126303Now that I think about it, it might have been nice to have an alternate "plain" base on which Sonico could be displayed. The stair base is pretty big and bulky, and so this would make Sonico easier to display on a crowded shelf!

    One might say that Sonico's butt is a platonic ideal of sorts-any flesh and blood butt would simply be a pale reflection of its greatness :).

    Thanks! :)

    Well was hoping for an bare breast option part, similar to how it was done with Leviathan hot pants (how they did cast-off option parts there was exceptionally well done XD), but would prolly still get her if I see a good priced one

    Kirenisa (2 mese/i fa) #37122436Nice review, I hope I can get her some day she's on my Holy Grail list. +_+ I agree with the rating you gave completely, especially about the base.
