[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Nanoha’s New Eyes Plus Dresses from BJD Atelier

It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]

Double the Yoko, Double the FUN!

My 5th and 6th Yokos out of my Entire collection of Gurren Lagann Figures, Wave’s Space Yoko, Normal and Limited Editions. Now you may be wondering why both? Well simple, I’m crazy and i want all the yoko figures there are and that will be made. So far i own a total of 7 Yoko figures and have 8 pre-ordered and am waiting on 2 more to be released on pre-order.

First off we have the regular edition Yoko, she comes with a white cape and complete leggings.

Very nice underboob ftw

The cape on both Yokos is removable

Next we have Limited Edition Space Yoko, as you can see her cape is clear and her legging stop at her thigh

Now both Yokos are practically the same, other than the small color differences. Yet i still prefer the Limited Edition to the regular edition Yoko. Not only does the leggings that stop at the thigh just look nicer, they gave her a more Pearl color instead of White like they did for Regular Edition Yoko. The heads and faces are exactly the same just the body differs. Yet i still love having the both of them side by side, yet it’s always interesting to explain to friends and family why i have two of the same figure. I was not a fan of this version of yoko to begin with, in the series once they did the time skip and she got her Space Look i just hated it, i felt it made her look older but in a bad way. I also felt that the style wasn’t flattering on Yoko’s amazing body but it’s been growing on me. I will say that Wave did an excellent job of capturing the essence of yoko’s character and body shape and made a terrible outfit look flattering on her. I’m starting to re-think Wave’s figure quality now, before i would have stayed away but having two Yokos was too much to pass up. Wave is slowly but surely making a name for itself among the big boys in the Figure Industry and if they keep this up they’ll be someone to look out for when it comes to amazing figures. Now if you had to ask me if you only wanted one which to get? I’d have to say hands down the Limited Edition. But if you’re a Diehard fan like myself? You have to get both as well!

    I’m still at zero Yoko figures, which is sad, since like Yoko is built like I like em. Just the manufacturers making her figures have always kept me away.

    @Otaku Dan:
    she does have a nice heiney, and i had them in a side page but no one ever clicked on it, in the months i had it up i had 20 vies on it only so i just removed it and am trying to figure out a naother wya to promote it that’ll get people to notice

    @Super Rats:
    the Alter Yoko and Yomako Sensei would be good ones to pick up i’d imagine

  5. Otaku Dan says:

    you can resize the banners on put them on a sidebar or something. one more thing, yoko looks like she is booty dancing.

    Cool, those Yoko’s are meant to be ‘twins’. What a lovely stance!

  8. Jarmel says:

    So would you recommend the Alter Yoko or the upcoming 1/5 Gift Yoko(which looks more moe)?

  9. Dancing Queen says:

    @Hirvine:
    i’m gonna have plenty of yoko twins once they also release the swimsuit figures

    @Jarmel:
    well depends on your taste, do you like Yomako Sensei? Bounty Hunter Yoko or regular Yoko? I’m getting them all so i can’t tell you which is better until they come out

    @Lightosan:
    how can you not be a fan of yoko? She’s so awesome!

    @Optic:
    yes for sure and i’m not even a fan of kotobukiya figures but she looks so awesome

  13. Lovelyduckie says:

    AHAHAHAHAHA the butt to butt shot made me laugh. Looks like how lots of girls from my school danced in high school. I have to admit that this is by far my least favorite outfit of Yoko’s. I honestly don’t think even a figure made by Alter of Yoko in this outfit could tempt me. That said though they’re not bad at all considering the difficulty of the outfit Wave had to work with.

    Will probably pick one of these up if my local store still has one in stock. Not really up there in my “fave Yoko,” lists but it isn’t bad. I really like the Eye Up version (gorgeous pose) and the Yomako Sensei figure from Alter though.

  16. Blowfish says:

    The head to head picture screams Yuri ^_^

    I really hate this Yoko Outfit.I cant really determine why but the moment i saw it i knew that ill never be friends with this one

    You really aren’t kidding about having so many Yoko’s around. I wonder if you have a nendoroid version of her.
