I have Figmas of Haruhi and Mikuru and all I was lacking was Nagato. Finally after a long time, I got myself to find and buy her so now here she is!!
I mentioned in an earlier review that Haruhi was in some way the 1st Figma. Well Nagato is the number 001 in the non SP line of Figmas. Now we have over 100 Figmas and boy does Nagato feel old… =3
Nothing too spectacular about Nagato here. I like that she has her brown jacket over the uniform as I have enough of that uniform in my collection. Personally I feel that Nagato looks rather boyish and her proportions aren’t that feminine. Hmmm…
Her hair sculpt is nice though, giving her hair style some definition.
Nagato is by nature expressionless. And yes the Figma doesn’t seem to have any expression…
Her jacket is made of some rubbery material similar to her skirt so no issues with poseability there.
Nagato comes with another face-plate, fringe with glasses, indoor shoes, 2 books (1 open and 1 closed), a chair (which you have to assemble), hands rack and the Figma stand.
I looked through the hands provided and I don’t think she comes with any hands that can hold the books securely so a lot of it is just balancing. Not that good but for the 1st Figma, it could be worse I suppose.
If you prefer megane-ko Yuki, you can also switch out the fringe part for her glasses. =)
Figmas nowadays would probably provide an alternate lower body to have a more realistic sitting posture but back then, it’s mainly touch and go. I really tried but still couldn’t replicate the effect of the box and this was the best I could do.
Yuki is a 文学少女。
Yuki is Figma 001 and obviously when it comes to comparisons with current Figmas, she seems to fall slightly flat. I got her because I wanted to complete my collection of the Haruhi girls and she was the missing piece. Alright let’s put it this way, if this was my 1st Figma, I would be rather impressed with the line but considering that I have so many now, Nagato doesn’t really stand out for me. Still I really like the character and I think the Figma did a fair job of replicating her. Should you get it? Not really..considering there are better Figmas out there. However if you’re S.O.S 団 star-struck, Nagato is truly worth consideration.
I’m left all alone…..
