Shining Blade – Sakuya – 1/6 (Kotobukiya)

Sakuya is quite a girl.  Okay, I really know nothing about her.  She is another character from a video game, and I was drawn to her by her fabulous outfit, and the giant sword that is the size of her body.

She is a slender figure with a great body.  She is accentuated by a great dress, and an amazing pair of pony tails that coil at the end.   There is a lot going on in this figure.  I am glad she is 1/6th scale to make sure all of the details are there.  This figure is definitely driven by the sword and the base.   The flames of the base make for a great base unlike any other in my collection.  Not just another plastic disk.   The sword, with it’s giant size still looks like it could somehow be wielded by this petite creature.   I think it may be due to the transparent appearance of the center part of the sword.

She has a happy appearance on her face.  I didn’t expect this from a girl standing in a fire wielding a giant sword, but whatever floats her boat.

In case one is so inclined, the underskirt can be removed to show a little more leg and cheek.  I am not really sure why there was so much trouble to allow the viewer to remove the small piece of clothing.  It could be due to the way the figure is built, and it is actually just the way she is assembled.  With the way Kotobukiya takes care in packaging, she has to come all apart to get all of the plastic from between parts that could rub together anyway.

In all, a great figure.   She is standing tall (quite literally, in the 1/6th scale) on display in my collection.  She is very bright and noticeable every time I go in the room.   I have seen a lot of people use her sword for other figures as well, since it is a separate piece.  Pretty versatile there, but she looks weird not holding anything at all.
