    galablue8 mese/i fa#70731078i'm so glad you are finally reviewing this figure! i was interested in her when i saw her in your comparison figures.
    i'm pretty disappointed in the bag over her head and am a little surprised that it didn't affect your score, but honestly who is going to display her with a bag over her head with a beautiful face and hair sculpt like that? no one! i think the only way the bag would have worked is if it was a separate head piece all together that you could have swapped out, like the bag was sculpted over her head. i'm also a little so/so on how her feet attach to the base, but since this figure is over ten years old (amazing quality!), i can forgive it. i feel like the skates, nowadays, would be more on display.
    i absolutely love the backstory behind this piece, it totally makes me want to read the manga. i also love how you did your comparisons this time with a theme for each picture :)
    great review as always, i'm happy we're getting quite a few of them in a row from you!! can't wait for more.


    I would highly recommend the Air Gear manga! It is a great story of young men and women overcoming their own insecurities and fears to become powerful and dedicated friends.

    I like the fact that they included the bag, because that's how she actually presents herself in the story, but I'd NEVER display her that way! I have such a crush on the character of Ringo, and this being the only figure of her that I really like ... she deserves a special place in my display. :)

    And yesterday, I finished the photography of all of the figures I have in hand right now (an additional eight figures to review), so I'll be doing some quick touchups on the shots and then start writing the reviews. I kind of want to spread them out a little because I haven't been buying figures as much in the last month (everything I've purchased so far was purchased in my first four months of collecting -- talk about money burning a hole in the pocket). Once this batch is reviewed, I'm going to have to be more careful about my spending so that I can continue getting good reviews of great figures uploaded. Maybe I can get a job working for one of the manufacturers to review their products, and they'll send me copies!! LOLOLOL

    victorviper8 mese/i fa#70731010Interesting review, as I was kicking around the idea of doing a review of this one myself.
    While it looks like you have an affinity for the character, I'm just vaguely aware of the Air Gear franchise, and I simply thought this was a very neat looking figure. Not having read the (vast!) Air Gear manga, I did not realize that she is scarcely seen in this particular getup.
    Back in the day, there was some back and forth about this figure; it seems like the prevailing opinion was that her face was a little too soft and her glare was not as severe as it could/should have been.


    I knew this was an older figure, but it's very interesting to hear that there was discourse about her expression at the time.

    The thing that is somewhat sad about the Ringo character in the story is that she is rarely in a really happy mood. Most of the time, she has a very concerned look on her face (because Ikki is ALWAYS getting into trouble). Other times, she's just plain pissed off and is ready to kick some serious butt (like in this figure). I'll have to see if I can find a scan of the page with this outfit and share it ... next to a scan with a beautiful smile. I wouldn't want people to think that she isn't really a beauty within as well as outside. :)

    TIL there's a figure for Air Gear.

    Ringo looks great. Even though the outfit is skimpy, I always find that skimpy outfits is much sexier than pure nudity. Even though I question why is there a pole attached to her collar (ain't that heavy), it totally enhances the risque-ness to it.

    Also, even though the way her straps is moving against the wind, the way you photograph her backside makes it seem like her strap is censoring her butt — very tasteful (and indirect) censorship.

    I also love how Ringo is with Asuna, both are very stark contrast to each other and I actually like it.

    PanchitoMatte Emilia-tan Maji Tenshi!
    The sex appeal of this figure is through the roof, in my opinion. A head that is proportionate to her body, breasts that are realistically large, eyes that are much closer in style and size to our own, hair that is a believable length, and is that a nose bridge that I see?! I see damn near no flaws. Bravo, Yamato.

    To think, this figure was released in 2008...
