Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

My New Favorite Yoko! It’s a gift!

Flickr Link

Got a new Yoko in the mail today, it’s Gift’s Yoko and she is just stunning. She’s #12 in my ever growing army of Yoko figures, with no stopping in sight. I also have to say that as of now of all the Yoko figures i own i think this Yoko is my new favorite!

Flickr Link

Not only is shequite large at 1/5 scale, but she is well proportioned as well for being such a large scaled figure.

Flickr Link

This Yoko might be my biggest figure to date. When i compare her to the 1/5 Movic Yoko i notice how that Yoko’s legs are quite long for her body and she isn’t as proportioned as this lovely Yoko.

Flickr Link

The paint is absolutely flawless and there are absolutely no hiccups on her paint wise.

Flickr Link

Also love the tone of red they’ve given her for her hair. Many Yoko figures tend to have a more pinkish tone in their hair. While this lovely Yoko had a more deep red tone of red that fits her original design.

Flickr Link

Love her face as well, how she holds her hair clip in with her teeth is just darling!

Flickr Link

Love the wrinkles in her thigh highs and the detail on her boots as well!

Flickr Link

Very Nice, High Five! Her Yoko-oopai also are very well designed and look more like how boobs look like in real life. My complaint with Movic’s yoko saggy boobs are that even though a woman with breasts that big would get saggy, a 14 year old wouldn’t have saggy boobs. She’s have nice perky ones since she is so young! Trust me on this, I’m a girl! I’d know!

Flickr Link

Love how they gave her gloves and pants a more plasticy feel, would look terrible on cosplay but works very nicely for this figure

Flickr Link

Of original Yoko in her normal attire pre-timeskip i’d have to say so far this is my favorite figure. There are still plenty more Yoko figures to go around! Space Yoko, Swimsuit Yoko, Yomako Sensei, Bounty hunter Yoko, maybe even streetclothes yoko if we’re lucky?

Flickr Link

I’ve had plenty of people ask me which is my favorite Yoko, and i’m gonna have to say it’s this darling girl. She’s quite large and a bit pricey but absolutely worth every penny. It’s figures like this that make me adore what i do and collecting figures as a whole. When you get something as amazing and dazzling as Yoko, it’s worth all the money spent! Don’t have a Yoko yet? This is one to get!

    I love thi pose, I really want this Yoko ; ;

  3. Flip says:

    this* ack, guess I’ll keep an eye on her on amazon jp

    • Dancing Queen says:

      i would have gotten her off amazon.jp but i had the pre-order with hobby search and couldn’t cancel it

  4. Quazacolt says:

    Nice Yoko figure shoot.

    im quite a yoko fan myself and till date i own 2 yoko’s and usually i wouldn’t buy multiple “clones” of the same figure, but for the really good ones, i dont mind making exceptions 😛

    my gripe with this yoko though: no sniper rifle XD
    and to me, one of yoko’s biggest attraction would be her sniper rifle

    • Dancing Queen says:

      oh see that’s one thing i thought was interesting about this yoko, that she has no rifle, not like i can’t steal the one that came with movic’s yoko and pose her with it

    heh I canceled this for the resin Yoko.. but may pick her when I go to Japan sometime later this year.. I still think that the enterbrain 1/7 Yoko looks nicer than this :p

  7. Meimi132 says:

    She is super gorgeous… all these reviews/pics of her of late are too cruel… there are so many figures I want…

    Ah, alas, the negative side of preordering from a US retailer. She’s such a dirty dirty girl 😉
    nice pics.

    When are you going to take a group picture of your army of Yokos? ^^;

    I can see why you love this Yoko to pieces. The details are just stunning! I can’t get over the wrinkles in her stockings; they look so real!

    • Dancing Queen says:

      I love how they also gave her a good color on the stockings, like the enterbrain yoko. Most other’s just get pink ones that don’t look exactly right

  12. Johno says:

    She is a BEAUT. Once in a while, you know when a figure comes along and catches your eye because it’s just so stunning? This is one of those figures. Nice catch, I’m still waiting for mine.

  13. super rats says:

    Being the huge fan of underboob that I am, I keep asking myself this same thing with each successive Yoko you show us…WTF am I doing when I order stuff?

  15. TheGeek says:

    We all now live in fear of your Yoko army, please only use the power for good.

    One thing nice about big figures is that there is always plenty of detail. And this one is no exception. Love the pose, not a power action shot but a more private moment with Yoko putting her hair up.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      you know that’s exactly what i love about this figure, it’s not the normal action post with her gun looking badass. It’s a personal moment of her getting ready for the day.

  16. Beautiful Yoko. This is probably my second favorite Yoko PVC after Alter’s bounty hunter one. I wonder how big this one is compared to my giant Yoko resin? (She’s supposed to be 1/6 but looks much larger.)

  17. Kanon says:

    Nice photos! This Yoko definitely is the most well made in my opinion, too ^^

    Kanons last blog post..New Art Progress – Lady

    • Dancing Queen says:

      i’m surprised for such a large figure the detail, in my experience larger figures don’t get as much detail as 1/8 figures but this beauty is an exception!

  18. lovelyduckie says:

    I’m waiting for mine. I’m extremely happy to hear it lived up to the high hopes I had for it. I agree that she looks to be the best of the young versions of Yoko for sure. I’ll have to have bounty hunter and yomako in front of me with her to decide if she is my all time favorite.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      once those two come into the mix it’ll be hard to choose an all time favorite yoko for sure

  19. Optic says:

    I want one with a gun provided. ^^
    At this moment, Koto one is still the one on my wishlist. To honest, it’s the only I really like from the promo shots.

    I hope Koto don’t disappoint.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      i understand wanting a gun but like TheGeek said it’s more of a private moment of Yoko getting ready and doing her hair and not being badass and needing her gun at that moment

  20. James says:

    I’m still waiting for mine , i hope tomorrow ^^

    Love your pics and i’m glad to see that this Yoko is awesome , it’ll be my first ^^ (compared to your army , it’s not much i guess :p)
