On opening the box, I thought damn she has a lot of parts. She’s got the most extra parts out of any other figure I have so far. She came dressed as you see above, except without the knife hilt in its sheath; Had to put that one on myself. I think she may also be one of the most detailed figures I have. Her clothes are all nicely made and show lots of buttons, creases, and whatnot. She’s got a very purdy face (imo) and a deliciously short skirt for a military looking girl lol ^^
Above is the default configuration for her gun. It’s about 6″ long (rough measurement) from butt end to bayonet tip. It’s neat that they put in little clear plastic pieces for the scope lens. Nice touch.
I wasn’t really impressed with her lingerie when I first saw it during her production stage over on Danny Choo’s page when he visited their offices. Didn’t seem…well…”sexy” enough compared to the three previous figures released. I was wrong to think that though, cuz she looks very nice in her lingerie too. Her boobs aren’t burstin out a la Char or have wedged up panties like Meifeng, but she is sexy in a more classy way. I like pokers (visible nipple outlines lol) and low, hip riding panties, so she gets a total thumbs up from me. Nice purple black/color combination and the frills are nice too. One thing though; Is it me or is her ass kinda flat? (; ¯3¯)
In a couple of these pictures is her gun in the longest configuration available which, as you can see, is taller than her. It measures close to 10″ (Nida herself on the base stands about 8.25″ tall). Though she has detailed clothing that looks complicated to get off, it’s actually pretty easy. It has seams where her top clasps together, but it definitely makes things easier than trying to squeeze and pry tight fitting clothing off of other figures (which may end up rubbing some of the paint together).
The thing I like most in the figure is her face. Goddamn she is so cute! I love the way her eyes look, which can totally melt you at certain angles (I like pictures 30 and 31 the most). I also like the way her mouth is formed, which can be beautiful by itself too (I tried to show through the shots of her body, where the top is cut off right above her mouth. I dunno…I thought it was nice lol).
Since she arrived, she’s now the figure I like to look at the most lol. Goodsmile has made another quality figure here. There’s just one thing I’m kinda worried about though. I read in some forums that people are wondering if she will ever lean. Her right heel doesn’t quite touch the base when it’s pushed in all the way, and that gives the figure a kind of learning forward look. If you try to push her heel down to touch the ground, the rest of the figure straightens up considerably, so I dunno if this will be a problem in the future. Maybe I should just display her with the knife in her hand instead of the gun so it doesn’t drag her down? lol
I didn’t take any shots of inside the book or listen to the drama cd yet, but may at a later time. Inside the booklet are introduction to some characters, some design sketches, a couple story scene illustrations, a two page spread (which isn’t that big, the book itself is only about 6″ x 8″ large), and an illustration of Nida in casual clothing (looks like classic Shunya style paperboy clothing). Overall though not a bad set considering a lot of figures these days are priced around how much I got her for total back when I preordered her last December.
Lighting in the pics are a bit harsh. Shadows too dark and lights too bright lol. Sorry…still workin on that… I am proud of the fact that I just shot the pics two days ago and have put them up though, instead of waiting a couple weeks to a month lol.
