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]

Sega Yoko and Nia EX version

Ok, so for this review I’m half-assing it this time! I apologize but things have been busy and while, I have actually gotten a few new figures of my own, yet It’s been hard to find time to sit down and do another review! I’m doing my best for you! Here we have the first Sega set of Gurren Lagann figures of Yoko and Nia.

As we should all know by now, Sega’s quality in these figures isn’t really up there. But with a retail price of 1,500 yen you can’t expect the best quality figures. That being said I love Nia’s eyes! They got them spot on! Her hair is lacking in the blue undertones, here it looks even a bit green and doesn’t have enough of the blue we come to expect with Nia. Her pose is generic and isn’t too spectacular. Some hiccups in the paint and the sculpt is sub-par, but again for such a low price you can’t expect the best.

With Yoko here I feel they got her body proportions a little off, but then most figure companies tend to change her body type per figure and she never looks exactly the same. Her pose, like Nia’s, is also quite boring and generic and doesn’t really scream “badass girl with a gun” when you see her, heck she doesn’t even come with a gun! I feel they got her eyes done well but something about her smile is awkward as is her eyebrows, giving her a confused look when you look carefully. One thing that bugs me with this Yoko figure is they don’t seem to do much with her long hair, it just drops down next to her and doesn’t flow or have a feeling of movement. I also wish they would have picked a better color for her hair, standing next to my other Yoko figures her hair seems to be almost too red.

With both figures if it weren’t for the fact that I’m just a huge fangirl I would never have bothered. I have very few Sega figures since the quality is just so little/non-existent. The few figures from Sega I own are figures characters I truly love like Sakura and Tomoyo from Card Captor Sakura. So owning the Yoko and Nia figures isn’t a stretch for someone like myself who likes to go after owning them as well! Would I recommend them to anyone? Only if they really wanted a Yoko or Nia figure for cheap, and even then I’d still say to just save your money and get the Uplark Nia for if you want a Nia figure and for Yoko there are so many other figures much worthy of your hard earned money.

    I’m with you on this set. The quality is just not so hot, especially compared with other recent releases. At least they’re better than the beach set. Those were *really* bad. I don’t know why Sega can’t maintain their quality, their DOA Shunya Yamashita figures (the Kasumi set and the Kasumi/Ayane bikini set) were great for prize figures, but a lot of their other stuff just falls flat.

  2. Flip says:

    Well I’ve always said Sega’s quality isn’t up to snuff but they don’t look bad really.

  3. lovelyduckie says:

    I own this set, I really like them. But as you said if you’re choosing between the UpLark figures and these…the decision is obvious. The quality of the UpLark Nia is great, way better than the Konomi one in my opinion.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      I dint even bother with the konami Nia and really if it weren’t for the fact that I want all the yoko figures I’d get rid of the konami yoko too.

  4. Blowfish says:

    Well Id rather say that they look quite nice for SEGA figures.
    I own the Aerocat Rei/Asuka and the ShunYama Kasumi/Ayane sets and the latter one falls far behind the two you showed us.

  5. Max Lingley says:

    Not too shabby for the price tag

    nice pair of figures you can go wrong with both Yoko and Nia
