Lucky☆Star - Hiiragi Kagami - 1/4 - Gym Uniform ver. (FREEing)Lucky☆Star - Hiiragi Kagami - 1/4 - Gym Uniform ver. (FREEing)

MoorinaMoorina9 vuotta sittenReview
If you ever talk to me about anime, one thing becomes clear... I love Kagamin. I am absolutely loyal and obsessed about her. Surely I don't have all the funds to collect every figure of her ever made, but I would rather sell my kidney to get the funds than miss FREEing's lovely 1/4 scale Hiiragi Kagami.

I have to warn you... I am somewhat biased. If you are collecting her only because you like to collect figures, you might disagree. But if you bought her out of love, then you'll feel right at home~ ^u^

Forgive my photos, I only have my cell phone at the minute ^^;

Sculpting
We should all be used to FREEing's ability to create amazing 1/4 scale figures, just look at the Haruhi bunny girls. Kagami is no exception: From her lovely twintails that flutter about her down to her cute shoes with the little tag in the back, the figure is almost lifelike. It replicates the minimal style of Lucky Star very well. Trust me, her face looks muuuuch better than the official shots. Her whole body feels very solid, including her twintails, so I am not so worried about leaning.

Painting
The painting does just enough to make the figure feel lifelike from any point of view. Since her gym uniform can be taken off, you can see the lovely shading on her body. Her purple shimapan is especially carefully done to ensure no bleed or smudge ruins a good striped pantsu. Her nails are painted with a baby pink, and it only adds to her cuteness, charm and girliness. I have not found even one paint mistake.

Posing
Kagami, in my opinion, is the hardest out of the four to find a good pose for. Most figures of her, full scale, are only able to show part of her character. Kagami is complex: tsundere, mature, responsible, teasing... etc. I feel that FREEing has done a quite good job with her. Her eyes are winking with a slight blush on her face... a single finger near her lips, as if saying "I have a secret crush.. but you'll never know!" It shows her dere, shy side, while still keeping abit a tsun. What I really liked, is how her legs are mid-walking with her feet turned slightly toward eachother, which I always find cute but in a subtle way.

Base
Kagami here gets the same base as Konata, a giant star in the style of the Lucky Star logo, but instead of blue, it gets a purple outline. The center is a reflective surface, but it came scratched... did anyone else get this problem? I don't mind it though, since Kagami's feet prevent any kind of upskirting. Or in this case, upshorting?

Packaging
Star windows on the side and big view in front. Sturdy material with pretty much no worry about denting.

Enjoyment
I've ranted a lot... let's just say... I can't stop starting at her. I have her on my desk next to my laptop and I noticed I spend a lot more time staring at her, admiring her beauty, than actually doing my homework, or even procrastinating ^^;; if you don't mind a lovely twintail tsundere to accompany you, FREEing's 1/4 Kagami is DEFINITELY worth every penny.

Ayu out! ouo

Your right her face doesn't look quite as horrid as the official shots made it look, but the outfit still feels so blah...I know their making those interchangeable outfits but I guess I like my PVC more on the static side and less like a dress up doll...

Still nice review and for a Camera phone the shots look pretty nice. ~_^
