kommenttia [NSFW/18+] Skytube 1/6 Baseball Girl (Mataro original character)

  • victorviper1 kuukautta sitten#79558108This Mikoto Misaka figure ITEM #155355 and her wet shirt always comes to mind when I see an illustration with wet/translucent clothing. In the case of Mikoto, I appreciate that Kotobukiya tried to simulate the wet effect, but it just didn't turn out that well...
    I have to think that even really talented illustrators like Mataro have favorite characters with features that sometimes find their way (perhaps subconsciously) into their designs. There are plenty of occasions where I see an illustration or figure and think "that reminds me of Lum/Belldandy/Rei Ayanami/Asuka/Haruhi/Super Sonico/etc.".


    As much as I like that Mikoto figure, the shirt never felt very convincing... and I left it in the box. Translucent plastic don't seem to be the right media to convey that particular wet look. It must be a painted effect (and a good one) to really look both wet and thin as textile. Something similar with what can be done with painted pantyhose and stockings.

    I wish there were good new Lum out there, but everything Takahashi Rumiko designed is poised to get mediocre figures, gashapon or figma. That's a shame. A classic Lum with her marbled hair colors such as in the manga would be stunning... yes, I'm dreaming FREEing will someday propose a Lum bunny as she appeared in the old OVA (light pink suit, black fishnets and white ears).

    sailormatlac1 kuukautta sitten#79556583Once again, a neat review of a neat figure. I was curious to see how she would turn out. Quite cute, but I agree some details are a little bit on the thick side (short lacings, etc.). I think they could have pulled off the semi-transparent clothing. It has been done in the paste with some good results. It would have been stunning, but I've got nothing about taking a safer design route.
    Funny you started comparing her with Haruhi. When I started reading your review, the first think I thought was "man, she has a Haruhi vibe". Baseball and anime girl blend together seamlessly, I agree! I'm really surprised how Skytube is quickly becoming one of my favourite manufacturer these days... and it's a slippery slope when it's time to display the collection in a tasteful and artistic manner... still have to figure that out!

    victorviper3 kuukautta sitten#77784790Next up should be Ban's Ayame ITEM #676029. She's awesome.
    I've tried to take a few shots of Nanami, and she is tricky to photograph. The way she's looking over her shoulder, the pool base, and her shiny (wet) skin all make for some photography challenges...


    Counting on you for the reviews :D
    I will join you one day, now waiting for the right Ban girl.

    Nanami Aoi is tricky since her body is seriously twisted
    but really is stunning.
    And the seams on her limbs is my only complaint.

    Maakie3 kuukautta sitten#77770502Oh, nice! I never saw this figure in such close-up before, I love her base and her shoes!
    I would have liked her shorts to be more see-through like the illustration, but I understand your point as well of them looking like plastic possibly.
    Thanks for the review! :)


    I never really paid too much attention to her shoes before seeing the figure in person, but they are very distinctive.

    Every time there is a figure with wet clothing, I always think of this ITEM #155355 figure. It's just so hard to depict wet fabric realistically, and that's why I eventually stashed Mikoto's t-shirt back in the box.

    Glad that you finally got her.
    And by sharing stunning NSFW content like this,
    we could help ppl picking up the best gals
    as well as keeping the niche NSFW hobby growing.


    Thanks. I've actually got a backlog of 18+ figures that need reviewing, but I've been busy with work lately. I've got ITEM #773406, ITEM #676087, and ITEM #78681 sitting in a little pile in the corner of my living room...
