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]

Going to far? NAH! Another Yoko!

Random reader: “ANOTHER YOKO! Seriously Dancing Queen! You need to stop! Enough is enough! There is a point when it becomes crazy! There comes a time when 16 Yoko figures are far too many”

ME: HA! I’ll never stop getting all the Yoko figures I can get!

Again as usual another Yoko, this time it’s the Lottery prize B Banpresto Yoko. She’s a hard one to track down but i got my hands on her for a pretty penny through eBay. Was she worth it? Read on to find out!

Cute face, Dynamic pose, love the base and how it’s her trademark skull clip.

I love the open mouth and teeth, her Yoko-opai are very cute as well.

The paint overall is well done, not any parts on her that are poorly painted.

As I mentioned the cute base and well detailed shoes, love the zipper!

Now here comes the complaining parts. Love at that curve of her back, NO WAY CAN HER BACK BEND LIKE THAT AND NOT BE BROKEN! Really it’s a 90 degree angle! while it does give her more of a dynamic pose this way and makes her Butt look amazing it really isn’t at all realistic, even for an anime figure.

When you look at her from the angle that you see that bend in her back she really looks very strange.

Favorite shot of this set, really an experimental shot and i’m glad how it came out.

See from this angle Yoko looks amazing! Very Nice underboob

Look at the curve, just drives me crazy! In a bad way!

I really do like her gun, it’s not hard to mess that up but then it’s possible.

Nice Butt for sure.

While I did have my complaints, as usual I still love her. Of course once again we all know my legendary bias towards Yoko and how she can do no wrong. So as always i’ll give the same recomendations I have been giving out. Love Yoko almost as much as me? Get your hands on this figure, she’s a rare one and a bit pricey but really a figure no Yoko fan should be without! Kinda iffy on Yoko but want a good figure of her? Try Gift Yoko, Enterbrain Yoko, Up-lark Yoko, or Alter Yomako Sensei. There are also some Amazing figures that are out that I have yet to get like the Kotobukiya Yoko you can see from Happy Soda or the yet to be released Bounty Hunter Yoko from Alter, She’ll be the Yoko to get!

Do I ever think i’ll stop getting Yoko figures? Not any time soon, still have tons more Yoko figures on order! It’s the first time that i’m not getting tired of getting figures of just one character. There is something special about each Yoko figure that I just can’t help but then them all! Will it Interfere with my regular collecting? Not at all as well! Still getting many Non-Yoko figures so it’s been a bit of a stretch to get them all but nothing shall stop me!

-Figure Info-

non Scale 250 mm

    Very nice. Love how they used the skull clip for the base, too may figures now a days seem to suffer from fugly base syndrome.

  2. AlexNoes says:

    Jesus Christ!! What happen to her back? Did she broke her spine or something?

  3. Flip says:

    never seen this one, the base is really nice. you should share the wealth of all these nice yokos/

  4. Kanon says:

    Wow, this is a lottery prize figure? Everything about her is awesome except the really awkward bend in her back! Looks painful ^^;
    Anyways, nice photos!

  5. ron~ says:

    this one actually one of the better sculpt of yoko figurines… too bad she’s not mass produced 🙂

    seems like the quality is good considering it has “prize” on the name (was thinking something similar to sega prize quality)!

    going to look around for this one 🙂

      it does suck she’s not mass produced, you know Banpresto would have made a killing off her if she was

  6. Emi says:

    Hey, I helped you get her! :p Lol, kidding. ;D

    I did not notice her broken back until you mentioned it. I can be unbelievably inattentive at times, lol. Of course, I’ve seen worse in official art. I’d link it if I remembered which one it was, but my memory is helping me out less than it usually does. :p

  7. ninjovee says:

    If it wasn’t for that unrealistic back bend… she’d be a very epic get!
    They made Yoko into a contortionist!

    I think Banpresto probably got a lot from this particular figure since it can only be won from a lottery… *nod*

    • Dancing Queen says:

      they must have gotten a lot but i bet they could have made a killing considering they are charging over $100 for her on eBay now

  8. Amburger says:

    Love the Yoko figure! Her pose isn’t totally unrealistic. I think I’m probably the only person next to Yoko who can bend my back like that!

    I would totally get this figure if it wasn’t so hard to find! Maybe they will make a re-release?

  9. OTOhime says:

    Banpresto must be getting better. I bought their Ryuugu Rena PVC, and she came loose in the box, each piece wrapped up like a Happy Meal toy (but I’m 100% she
    ‘s not a bootleg.) Not to mentaion the rather poor quality of the figure overall >_< Anyway, she was only from ’08 so they seem to have improved quickly^^

    • Dancing Queen says:

      well for a lottery prize they have to make sure the figures is of good quality, for normal releases they tend to be not so good

  10. lovelyduckie says:

    I had a chance to buy her for a decent price (well as decent as you can get with limited figures) but I skipped due to the curve in her back. I liked everything else about the figure but I really couldn’t overcome that oddness. My favorite Yoko figure (that I currently own) is the Enterbrain one. But I only actually own 2 Yoko figures right now so that’s not saying much, all the rest are on pre-order. Enterbrain would be my absolute favorite even over the pre-order Yoko figures if getting the gun in and out of her hands wasn’t so delicate.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      i broke the gun on my enterbrain yoko, but it broke at a part that was easily fixable and you don’t notice

      • lovelyduckie says:

        Mine got a small crack in it that I can hide. With so many reporting that their guns completely broke when trying to put it in her hands I count myself lucky that it cracked in a way I can hide. When moving my figures I packed her with special attention and didn’t dis-assemble her. My 1/5 Scale Gift Yoko is in the mail 🙂 YAY!

    Love it. So hard to find good Yoko’s these days. I am hoping to find the Dollfie Yoko you posted earlier.. going to be spending big bucks sadly..

    Dancing Queen since you love Yoko so much (who doesn’t) you need to check this version of here coming this October. http://www.hlj.com/product/WAVDT-64 is beautiful.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      seen her, pre-ordered already as well. while i like it since it’s got Nakim and Maosha i think the Alter Yomako sensei will be the better Yomako figure out there

  13. The Envoy says:

    I never knew that girls collected female figures. Now I know.

  14. ooo… yeah, that back really killed it. Still a beaut, tho

    Never stop getting Yoko figures!
    I love looking at all of your amazing pictures of them. (This one included!)

    This Yoko is pretty cute. I absolutely love the base!
    Her back is just so unnatural, but her cuteness makes up for it!

  18. For a hardcore fan and collector, there is no such thing as too many figures of your favorite characters ^^; I’m kind of the same way with Kagami & Lucky Star figures. I like to collect anything Kagami-related that I can find 🙂

    As for the figure, it’s quite cute aside from the biologically impossible back pose you pointed out >_< Ouch!

  19. animemiz says:

    Hmm.. to the experimental pose… it looks interesting, but still dark? Is that on purpose? Nice sexy figure tho.

  20. FancyIndia says:

    My back hurts just looking at it lol But, cool shot of her silhouette with the sun in front of her. 🙂

  21. Hutcho says:

    You can definitely never have to many yoko figures. I have four myself want to get more but that mrs doesn’t like yoko and my other anime girl figures everywhere around the house. I don’t like that spine curve either put me off getting that figure.
