Yoko Littner – Sega

Sweet, sweet Yoko, how you make me happy on my shelf.  Not that I didn’t already have a plethora of Yokos on my shelf, but what is one more?   A new pose, and some great hair.  Gotta love Yoko.

A full standing pose this in this statue by Sega.  Somewhat simplistic in design, this statue makes up for it in detail.  From her fantastic outfit, to her long flowing hair.  This is a great representation of the sniper wielding beauty.   Though I do miss seeing her with a sniper rifle somewhere nearby.

This is a well designed figure that looks great from any angle.  With her head twisted to the side, and her upper body coming around, this allows for a very simple yet dynamic stance, that is accentuated by her giant ponytail that flows with her movements.

She is not my first Yoko, and truth be told, she will probably not be my last.  There are some statues that have way more fine detail, but this one stands on her own.  She was a great find at the San Jose Toy Show a few months back.  That is a whole lot of red hair stuffed on that shelf.  I am sure I can make room for more.  😉

Cammy – Street Fighter Bishoujo Statue

I have been waiting for Cammy since I got my hands on Chun-Li.   I knew this was going to be a great pair to put on the shelf.

We moved from the heavy muscles of Chun-Li, to the tighter military muscle of Cammy.   She is presented in her classic green bathing suit.   Of course, she has to wear it so we get a view of her derrière.  I think for Cammy, since she is not wearing a whole lot of clothing, is the detail in her body.   Her muscles are so slender, and they show so well.

Look at the details around her shoulders.  The muscle masses are so fantastically done, with just the tiniest amount of shading to really help the details pop.

Even though she doesn’t have a whole lot of clothing, what she does have really looks good.   Once again, Koto’s details on areas like wrinkles are the best.   You can see how Cammy is turning and pulling the fabric of her suit.   She also has some great creases in her hat, as well as laces on her boots.  The gauntlets she is wearing is a metallic red color, that really make them stand apart from the softer texture of the rest of her attire.

Of course, the pièce de résistance is the ability to have Cammy fight Chun-Li.  Now THAT is a great feature of a product aimed at a fighting video game.   No more single poses for characters.  This time they get to pose to fight… if you so desire.  They look great on their own as well.

Needless to say, I am really excited to see what comes next.  This could be my favorite Bishoujo line yet.  As always, there are tons more pictures on my flickr page.  Click here, or find the link on the tool bar to the right.  –>


Bome Volume 26 – Akira

She is from an anime called Sukapon-Do.  I have no clue what it is about, who this character is, or much of anything else other than I thought it was a great looking sculpt when I saw it on Amazon.com.  She has beautiful pink hair.  Okay, the hair color is not really the beautiful part, but something to be expected with an Anime figure, right?

The base is not a part of the figure, thank goodness.   It is nice and all, but I wanted to put her in my display case, and the base would block light to the lower shelves.   Her clothes are very detailed with lots of waves and folds.   Speaking of clothes.   I did not know until I got her in the mail that she has cast-off clothing.  I was a bit surprised by that, but not necessarily a bad thing.  😉

Thankfully though, the clothes do not fit poorly or have funny seams where the clothes have to come apart to come off.   With Akira, her body comes apart at the waist, and her top comes off, as does her skirt.   Under, she is wearing a corset and a thong.  The corset does not leave anything to the imagination.   Hence why you don’t see a picture of this here… since I do actually write sometimes on my lunch break at work.

In all, a really nice figure.  Not too small, with great design.
