CDP: Misaka Mikoto Onee~sama

December 1, 2010

Well, stock image from Hobby Search due to me forgetting to take a picture of Mikoto before swapping bodies. (^.^;)

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.

Review: 1/8 Misaka Mikoto and Kuroko Shirai by Kotobukiya

BiriBiri Yuri Goodness!!!

BiriBiri Yuri Goodness!!!

It’s MIKOTO MADNESS!!! More precisely, Misaka Mikoto, the electricity wielding, Level 5 psychic of Academy City from the Novel and Anime To Aru Majutusu no Index. This time, we’ll be taking a look at the figure of her made by Kotobukiya along with a figure of her roommate, kohai and obsessed Yuri partner, Kuroko Shirai made by the same company. Mikoto is definitely my absolute, favourite character of the series and one of my top favourite Tsunderes of all time.
