If one Misaka Mikoto is awesome, how’s 20,000 of her sound?
You might have noticed that I have not been buying as many Completed PVC figures as I have been in the past. I myself have recently caught wind of this trend and have been wondering why. After some thought, I narrowed it down to a few reasons. In doing so, I managed to create a system explaining how I collect and decide which figure representation of a character I should buy.
After finishing up the latest Actar’s Reviews episode, I took some time to take a couple more pictures of my (custom) Kuroko and Mikoto dolls~
To follow up my Custom Misaka Mikoto Doll project, we’ll be giving Azone’s 1/6 scale doll of everyone’s favorite Perverted Twin-Tailed Teleporter the articulation that she deserves.
Here’s the video version of my most recent custom doll project, replacing the Pure Neemo Doll body of Azone’s 1/6 Misaka Mikoto with a 25cm Obitsu Doll Body.
Nowadays, Azone’s 1/6 scale dolls utilize the Pure Neemo doll bodies. They look nice, but are horrendously lacking in the articulation department. Let’s just count the points of articulation that Pure Neemos offer.
1 – Neck, 2 – Shoulders, 2 – Upper Arms, 2 – Elbows, 2 – Wrists, 1 – Waist, 2 – Legs, 2 – Thigh, 2 – Knees, 2 – Feet
Altogether, that’s only 18 points of articulation. Not to mention, they are all cut joints that look good, but only offer a single direction of movement. While they could get away with this with non-action girls like the cast of K-On!, having Mikoto restrained to such a limited range of poseablility is a no-no.
