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]
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]
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]
Did you know I like Yoko from Gurren Lagann? Well I do! I own about 28 Yoko figures and am still missing only one to complete my collection of all the Scaled PVCs of Yoko. This is the latest one that has been released for Gurren Lagann's 5th Year Anniversary. Of course I'm partially biased when it… [more]
I said I’d do my best to continue updating you guys with new figures! Again more with the Loaned Figure series. Next up is another Kotobukiya Beauty Uesugi Kenshin from The Visual Novel Sengoku Rance.
Uesugi is for sure one of those figures that I had passed on but once I saw out of the box regretted immediately not getting her when she was originally released.
Such a lovely face, and big blue eyes that draw you in, it was hard not just stare at her. If I owned her I know she’d be sitting on my desk, she’s just too pretty to not want to always look at her.
Love her flowing hair, I’m not usually a fan of the way Kotobukiya does of hair but it works so well with Uesugi here.
She comes with a pointy hat, I’m not exactly sure what it is but I’m torn between the hat. I love and hate it at the same time.
I hate the hat since it draws too much attention away from her beautiful face and lovely dress.
It was pouring rain this past weekend, but that didn’t stop me from doing an outdoor shoot with this figure who really deserved having her own backdrop.
Luckily water doesn’t damage figures, but you gotta be sure to clean them up after wards or you can get water spots that are hard to remove later.
Now without the hat, it seems that there is something missing from her head. So I tend to prefer the hat but at the same time I wish it weren’t at such a dramatic point.
You can switch out her bow for a smaller bow as well, but I felt it was lacking and only did pictures with the big bow and her hat.
Not many full body shots, that’s my fault for not realizing they were blurry until way later in post production of of Photo Shoot. She comes with a small Diamond shaped base that doesn’t distract from her at all. It’s in a transparent Dark blue and fits well with her, It’s a bit plain but overall does it’s job well.
Uesugi is just an overall stunning figure, I’ve got plenty more figures that I reviewed that are coming, but Uesugi is hands down one of the big surprises and favorites of this past weekends figures. I was blown away by how amazing she was in person and know that out of all the figures I got to see she is one I must get my hands on one day!
Manufactured by Kotobukiya
Initial release in April ’08
Price of 6,800 Yen
Uesugi is a little hard to find now but if i spotted her anywhere I’d her! A good place to start would be any of these trusted retailers!
