Hello and welcome to my latest figure review here on MFC~ (ﾉ≧∀≦)ﾉ
The character I will take a closer look on today will be Riko Sakurauchi from Love Live! - Sunshine!! I bought this figure from AmiAmi's preowned section (condition: Item B+ | Box B).
Please not that this review may be a bit biased because she is one of my favourite characters and Alter made this figure. THIS REVIEW IS PICTURE HEAVY.▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁THE BOXThe figure comes in a square box with no windows. The design is simplistic with gold-foil-details in the shape of the figure and a big preview on the back.
Front and back:
Left and right sides (plus assembling sheet):
I also thought this quote on the inside of the box was cute ~
Bonus look at her inside the blister:
▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁▁THE BASE + ACCESSORY
The figure comes with a magnetic hat and a long staff which can be de-assembled to insert it into her hands. The details on both of these turned out crispy and match with the original illustration this figure is based on (check here: static.myfigure...)
The base of the figure is a round clear disk with some star details printed on it. Its hard to picture but it also has a checkered design on it, which matches the design of the figure.
THE FIGURE Now onto the figure ~ Let's take a look at her 360°:
I haven't found any flaws yet and in my eyes she looks gorgerous from any angle and any side. The colors are hard to capture on photographs because they are very soft/pastel-like colors and I don't own a professional camera/light setup. Feel free to check out other photos to get a better idea of her "real" colors.
Next onto some detail-shots:
The figure has a lot of small details on her outfit which Alter translated well onto the 3D figure. Please take a look at the buckeles, gems, chains all around her.
Her outfit has big ribbons all over it, which seem to be floating around her waist. The checkered design doesn't seem to have any paint issues and the colors match her design well.
The hat and her hair complete the look of this figure: she has a nice soft gradient in her bordeaux-like hair and her hat, which attaches to her head with a magnet, fits nicely on her head.
As you can see she sits securely on her metal-foot-piece and her boots have cute oranges ribbons on them. The eye-color matches Rikos character-design and complete her cheerful expression!
When this figure was first announced I was thrilled that Riko won the election for the "Special 7 ver." and was turned into this figure. On MFC 53 people own her while over 440 have her on her wishlist. I've seen her on AmiAmi a few times more, so if you are looking for this figure you could find her there.
I think this figure might be my new favourite one I currently own! If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or message me :)
I hope you guys can see the beauty and details of this figure (but my low-quality photos don't do her justice)! I'm very happy to add this figure to my collection.
Thank you for taking the time to read this review! I really enjoyed creating this and hope you felt the same way reading ~
