Shinji & Kaworu (SEGA PM Figures) reviewShinji & Kaworu (SEGA PM Figures) reviewReview

clcclc5 лет назад
Hello MFC! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

I decided to post yet another figure review!
Some of you may be fed up with them but as I received largely encouragement I decided to continue! (˘⌣˘)

Please hold your rotten tomatoes (keep them for later .. or at least after the post). I hope this review would be an enjoyable read for you! (^o^)

Feel free to comment and suggest things for improvement!
Note: All ratings are as of a quality of a Prize figure

Attention:
Picture heavy!
Bad Picture quality!
Bad Photographic skills!
Possibly messed-up English too ...
You have been warned!

In this review I'm covering two figures: ITEM #157799 and ITEM #157807

This time around I decided to review these two SEGA figures that I have (they are basically the only figures from this Manufacturer that I own). I'm also planning to add ITEM #236267 and ITEM #236263 but I missed the PO period (TT^TT)

Figures' Details:
Date of release: Dec 2013
Type: PM figure
Manufacturer: SEGA
Dimensions: ~200 mm (with the bases)

Purchase:
I bought them as a set from Manda (3,000 Y).
I had decided that if I would have one of those - I'd rather get the two together and not having to search for the second one later on.

Availability as of this moment:
Not too rare or difficult to find on the after market

Packaging (7/10) ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

I really liked the red coloured boxes.
There are no additional pictures, aside that of the figures themselves, no transparent parts, pretty standard but overall, very nice.

As for the state: the Kaworu's one seemed a bit beaten-up compared to Shinji's.
Apparently they waited till they had both so that they can pair them up.

Whatismore, the figures come in plastic insert.
I'm a bit too used to Prize figures not having those at this point, thus it pleasantly surprised me (^-^)

Shinji in his plastic. Kaworu came is tha same manner!

Base (7/10) ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

The figures come as one peace.
The bases are charming and - I really like the destruction/damage vibe that these red rocks give.

This is the point where I should mention that Kaworu has two versions: ITEM #157807 and ITEM #124882 .
The one from Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Q has a red base, the colours of the body are slightly darker and I'm going to take a look at this particular version.

Painting (7/10) ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Some paint transfers here and there.
Overall, the figures look very good and the paint job could have been better (a bit sloppy on the details) but it could have been much worse.

Sculpting (8/10) ★★★★★★★★☆☆

They both turned out really well.
Some flaws are present but not very noticeable.

* You can notice the little scratch on the left side - I'm still not sure if I will be able to fix that but I was so excited about those that I noted it only after looking at the pictures (-_-;;)

Remark to myself: Always check and clean the figures before taking photos of them (-_-;;)

Yes, some backside pictures included - I apologize - but I just couldn't help myself (^///^) They are very nicely sculpt.

Also, their arms and the legs are long/extended. It makes sense as the anime art is like that. But overall, both bodies look really slim and fragile .

Posing (10/10) ★★★★★★★★★★

I really enjoyed trying to pose those two together.
They mostly ended up either looking like this (side by side)

Or like that ... *ahem*

Enjoyment (10/10)* ★★★★★★★★★★

http://i.imgur.com/RclVIaql.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/mxz4JTEl.jpg

The full enjoyment from the figures comes from having them both (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
And I would recommend if you're going for one of them - take the second one!

That's all folks!

Hope you enjoyed this review! (you can throw your tomatoes now)
Thank you for your time and feel free to drop a comment!

PS I was looking forward to anothe KawoShin figure - the one from Vertex ITEM #198470
However, at least judging by the photos until now, I very much disliked the sculpt. Sorowfully the orginal art is great picture/922264&... (TT^TT)

Maakie5 лет назад#2459089I had to laugh a bit at their butts. xD This happens with so much male figures for them to have nice long legs...and then this teeny-tiny-behind...and then a nice long upper body again. xD
Which is strange considering how many female figures with different shapes and sizes are out there already existing ^^;; But oh well, I guess at least now we have more and more of male figures being released and probably the sculptors are going to start fixing those behinds ^///^ *patience patience*

Moro5 лет назад#2466468Forgot to do this earlier but I've linked this review to the Kaworu and Shinji clubs :>
Thank you, Moro! I didn't even know we had such club *shame on me*

clc5 лет назад#2455898I was also thinking about it but I don't really dare re-painting Shinji at this point ^^;;;
btw Great NGE collection *so envious*

It'll be tricky since they're tiny decals but I think I can do it very carefully and slowly. And if I mess it up too badly he shouldn't be too pricey to replace.

Eheh, thanks. I've invested a lot into it.

Thank you all for the kind words! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)


Kawoshin5 лет назад#2454745I still have hope for the upcoming Vertex Kawoshin figure. We haven't seen an actual non-promo shot yet, right? ^_^ It could end up ok!
I keep my fingers crossed - the promo pics made me gave up on my PO plans for that one (TT^TT) However if it turns out better ->>> I'm soooo getting it!

Moro5 лет назад#2455119They're quite nice, though I'm bothered by Shinji's inaccurate eye color. I need to take my finest brush to him and correct it to the proper Rebuild blue-purple.

tiezoc7575 лет назад#2455131I was hesitant about buying the Shinji, but after reading this review and seeing how nice they look together, I may have to buy him in the near future ^-^
Yup, they really look nice together. And thank you for the painting tip! I may use it in future (^.~)

Great review! I have that Kaworu aswell; he accidentaly fell a while back when I was moving my figures because they were becoming too crowed on the shelf he was on. When I quickly picked him back up I noticed he had gotten a stratch on practically the same spot yours has his. I just grabbed some grey acrylic paint, mixed it with a little bit of white until it was the same grey and painted over the scratch; worked like a charm!

Ah I preordered these when they originally went up! They're quite nice, though I'm bothered by Shinji's inaccurate eye color. I need to take my finest brush to him and correct it to the proper Rebuild blue-purple.

kevinlowl5 лет назад#2454644Excellent review, I'll hold on to the tomatoes for next time! >:D
A picture of their both their butts placed alongside Alter's Assuka needs to happen, like seriously.

consider me on the case, these two have great asses almost as good as hers!

Kawoshin More male figures, plz!
Great review! Your photos are great, there is nothing bad about your photography.

I own this set and love to pose them with their fingers intertwined. ;)
