June London Trip :3

June 24, 2010

TAIYAKI! Finally I got to try some XD

Had an awesome time with Purplezest. Got some awesome lootage too. It was kinda, unintentionally a Japanese-themed trip XD, all the stuff we ended up doing/seeing hehe, didn’t get to the Namco center though, one giant arcade seemed like enough somehow XD Had much fun spotting Pudding too 🙂 And we saw a guy on the tube who looked scarily like Robert Downey Jr… XD

Kotobukiya Ikuno Komaki ~ToHeart2 Another Days~ 1/8th PVC Figure – An every-otaku review

November 26, 2008

Oha all! It’s almost 4am in the UK, and I have no lessons tomorrow, so blatently, I’m gonna be awake till about 5 lol. Sleeping in LATE lol. Then going for movies in the evening I believe… work inbetween then though. Like a good little student. :beam: Onto the review I say!

Today we look at Ikuno Komaki. Manaka’s younger sister.(A figure of which I might be getting for xmas off some friendlies.) The unique thing about Ikuno-kun is that she is in a wheelchair. I had never before seen a wheelchair-bound figure before Ikuno-kun. I first spied her on Play.com of all places. And avoided buying due to the £35 price tag and the smallish size, about 13.5cm or 5.5inches (Michiru Yamada is about the same, I’m sorry I haven’t been mentioning the heights of the figures in my reviews… thats one piece of information I always look for in reviews…. gomenasai…). When I saw her at the London Expo in October for £25 I didn’t hesitate in getting her. (Along with Michiru, Tamaki, Asakura and Fuko lol, £25 each, £125 total at that stand alone…) I was soooo pleased I finally got her! As you may already know, I love ToHeart. ToHeart2(and AD) in particular. I’m currently watching the first ToHeart anime. On ep 4. Tis nice so far. Nice backgrounds. But is making me wanna buy all the available older ToHeart figures… I already own 3…. but there are quite a few more I’m missing….(just reminded me… I made a list of my figures, just before the Midlands Expo… needs slightly updating….)

The figure itself has a great sculpt. The paintwork is nice. Very neat lines on the skirt detail and neckerchief detail. I’m very happy with Koto’s workmanship here.

back2

The pose is nice. Slightly turning, book in hand. Very cute. Captures the sickly-hospital-bound archetype well.

ikuno-back

The hair is nice. Though you can see a joint line in this photo on the hair. Only a travesty if your displaying back-first. And I’ve never encounted anyone to do that… yet lol. You can also see, the familar clear pink base. Even though you don’t really need a base for this figure due to the wheelchair. More pics n details below.
