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]
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 comes to figures of Yoko, so it’s hard for me not to like one. Still for the price I feel the quality of this Yoko figure is pretty awesome. It isn’t up to par with say GSC or Alter but she’s still very nice for a prize figure.
Boota is grabbing onto Yoko’s top and pulling, seems she’s worried her top might fly off at any moment!
Some seam lines as well as the paint is a bit too glossy for my taste. As well as there are some shading issue with this figure, however she wasn’t much money and you do get what you pay for in terms of quality.
Her face is pretty adorable with the open mouth, but if you don’t look at her at the correct angle she does look a little derpy sadly.
The base is simple but the way she’s being held up is cool. The 5th Anniversary, makes me wish more companies released Gurren Lagann merchandise for this 5th year.
Nice view from the back, her shorts are very devoid of any detail, not there there is much to focus on.
As mentioned her base is pretty awesome in that it has Lagann’s hand coming out to hold her up. It really does add that extra special something nice to this figure.

This Yoko isn’t the best out there for sure, but if you’re on a budget I’d say she’s the one to get. If you’re looking for best quality there are plenty of other Yoko’s out there that are much better and prettier. I got her as I’m a huge fan of Yoko and Gurren Lagann and couldn’t resist! If you’re like me or are just looking for an inexpensive Yoko figure, then I’d get her!!
