Hello everyone! Today is my birthday, and yesterday I had the energy to finally open and photograph a figure I received earlier this week, Skytube's Watase Nozomi!

This is my first time doing any sort of "review," so I'll do my best! Even if all I have to work with is my phone camera and natural lighting..!


Watase Nozomi - Skytube - T2 Art☆Girls - 1/6 ITEM #164568


At first glance, the box is as expected. The (censored) original art is on the top panel, photos of the figure on the front back and sides... but wait? The front opens up onto a window..!

Being that this is my first NSFW figure, I wasn't expecting that, so it was kind of cool for me.

I didn't waste a lot of time on box photos, and got straight to checking out the figure instead!

Cute and demure... She came wrapped in a bunch of plastic sheets. I guess that's good for keeping paint where it belongs and avoiding transfers, but the annoyance of having to take her apart to remove it all... :P Doesn't she look kinda like a bride in a cellophane veil right now?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170370.jpeg

O-oppai...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170371.jpeg

She starts to come apart! Nozomi's head, arms, and legs all come off to support her various cast-offable features. :3

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170372.jpeg

A problem is quickly discovered. Garterbelts... don't usually look like that, huh?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170373.jpeg
Garterbelts do not work that way!

It seems having the garterbelt on underneath the apron, squished like that for 4-5 years was a problem... I'm going to try to heat up the material a bit to see if I can push it into shape, but it's sad... I wonder if anyone out there would sell just the garterbelt? (But obviously that would change the value of their own Nozomi...)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170375.jpeg

Here she is, somewhat put back together. Now that I have the plastic wrap off her, I see that the apron doesn't exactly fit on her left shoulder. In addition...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170376.jpeg

...the pegs won't go into the holes on the back, so it doesn't really "fit" at all.


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170377.jpeg

So the apron came back off. Obviously I tried the garterbelt a second time... Nope, still looks bad.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170378.jpeg

Another problem was found: The gap in her thighs, especially her right thigh. Pretty unSEAMly! Hahaha. That's where her legs pop off to allow her panties to be removed, but the right one at least, doesn't seem to fully connect again... Well, I guess I won't see her from this angle often.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170379.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170380.jpeg
Her panties also come off--no photos, I didn't want to remove them and struggle to put them back on. It wasn't my intention to display her nude... I really wanted that apron to fit her right, so I could display her like that. ): For now, she's just wearing the panties and the stockings, which are glued to her legs. I have seen a number of photos of Nozomi in cloth kimono, which is a good idea! I might have to pick up some kind of doll clothes for her to wear.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170382.jpeg

This many photos in, I'll get to rating her. I love her pose. It looks a bit awkward from some angles, almost like her hands are tied behind her, I think. But once you catch a glimpse of one of her hands, holding her up from behind, you realize that she's seated in a coy, almost fliratious pose, pushing her chest forward, and folding her legs out in front of her. I really like her pose; it's what made me pick her over another T2 girl for my first NSFW figure. I am sure there's something to be improved upon, but I can't find it. For the pose, I give her a 9/10


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170381.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170384.jpeg



Sculpting: I do quite like the sculpt of her body, but obviously I had some issues with some parts of her. Being largely unfamiliar with cast-off figures, I am unsure who is "to blame" for things like the gaps in her thighs and the clothing not fitting her... I am tying that into sculpting for now. I think they could have done better there. In addition, her tummy or lack thereof kind of weirds me out. Her stomach is so sucked in that it indents... not a great look, just in my opinion! It's like they tried so hard to slim down her waist, they made her look unnatural in the process. Again, not an angle I'll see her from often... But the huge boobs + tiny waist is such an odd look when I do catch sight of it! So I'm giving that a 7/10.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170387.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170388.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170389.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170390.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170391.jpeg

Painting: The paintjob is simple, but effective. I do really love her eyes, they're lovely. Being a castoff figure, there's not a lot there to paint, so I'll rate based on what is there. The blushing and shading in her skin is mild, but there. I'm not sure my phone camera is picking any of it up, but I can see it looking at her. She is very simply done, but her face is just wonderful. 7.5/10, rounded to 8.

Base: Nothing really special. It's a round plastic saucer with white fur on top, but it's nice just to have something soft for her to rest on. I don't think she would have benefited from a more intricate base, nor can I picture how they would have worked a figure sitting in such a simple pose into a more elaborate base... so points for not doing anything unnecessary?

Packaging: As I said, the box gets the job done, and the front flap opening onto the window was a neat surprise! I do actually quite like the photos on the sides of the box, showing her best points.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170392.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170393.jpeg

Overall enjoyment: I do love the fishnet thigh highs... It feels so soft and looks so good. As a first-time castoff / NSFW figure collector, I think she was a good choice. She's lovely in a really pure, simple way, and a nice way to start my nsfw collection. However, I think that if I already had some NSFW figures to compare her to, I would have ended up disappointed by her flaws. The castoff parts, the gap in her thighs, the weirdly sculpted belly, are all disappointments to me. So while I am overall happy to have her, I do find myself a little less than thrilled. I would put this at about 7/10. I wish I could have been fully happy with her, but she's not perfect. And that's okay!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/03/09/2170394.jpeg

Right now, she sits on my bookshelf. I have several more R18 figures making their way to me in the next several months, so I can only hope that there'll be time to get a new, bigger shelf sometime between now and then. As it is, there is little room for her base (which I guess isn't really necessary, but I like to use bases...)

Thank you for reading this! I hope in the future, I can take some nicer photos for more reviews!

arparso1 anno/i fa#53885307Shame that noone commented on your review so far, because it was a nice read and Nozomi is a really cute figure! Sorry to hear about the few issues you had with her sculpt and clothing, though. Usually that's more a problem of Chinese knockoffs, but even some genuine figures can be a pain to assemble correctly with parts not quite fitting how they should. Has been pretty rare for me, though, so I hope you'll be fine with your other cast-off purchases.
Back in my bootleg-collecting days, I actually got the chinese knockoffs of her and ITEM #183921 and display them together since:

I think they make a really cute pair together and I hope to be able to replace them some day in the future with the original version.

Thanks so much! Those figures look really lovely together (somehow I'd never seen the other before!) I hope someday you're able to welcome the originals into your collection!

Heavenly_Otaku1 anno/i fa#53968517Belated Happy birthday to you!
Thank you for writing this review of Nozomi. This is a good review, I like it.
Her variant has been, in and out and in, of my wishlist for years. Sadly other NSFW figures had to be bought before I could snag her.
Yes, garter belts don't work that way! haha
For a moment, I thought she could be a bootleg, due to her back strap don't fit in the peg holes.
She looks best with her get up on, rather than showing her waist.
Looking forward to reading more of your reviews and Sorry for my late comment.
Cheers!


Thank you! I agree, she looks wonderful with the apron covering her a bit. I did some digging through Nozomi's comments here on MFC, and it looks like the apron not fitting together is a semi regular problem; a handful of people who commented said they had the same issue with not being able to fasten it... It would probably be fine to put it on her without attaching it at the back, but it wouldn't sit on her shoulder correctly if I did that (and obviously that doesn't look *great* but maybe it's better than nothing?) I still haven't tried heat on the garterbelt, but maybe when I do I will try heating up the apron as well, to see if I can close it on her.

Thanks again! I look forward to writing more reviews sometime :D
