jesmagicchild (18 days ago) #19769020Fun fact about this figure; you can "technically" make her a castoff.
You can remove her shorts and just leave her in the bikini.
I wouldn't do that myself, but someone on the site did.
In either case, thanks for another great review. :)


I didn't know that was possible. With the gaps my Pochaco had where the legs meet the body, I would be very hesitant to go that route. For that matter, I usually don't attempt any kind of casting off unless the figure was designed for that purpose.

Thanks for the nice comment!

Limited (18 days ago) #19779886She's a real cutie for sure, and what I feel is one of the best figure depictions of her despite being a prize figure. It's just that combination of cute and energetic, while not being too in-your-face.
Though sometimes I am a bit tempted to pull her apart and try to clean off those seam lines... but that's probably too much work for a prize figure, heh.


Given how pronounced those seams are, I couldn't imagine the cost-benefit calculation is right for trying to clean them up.

I agree that among all the Pochacos out there, this figure possibly does the best job of capturing her true character. The candidates would probably be either this one or this Vertex offering item #235623 .

Dribz (19 days ago) #19736286Great review! I don't get into a lot of the Pochaco figures, mainly because of her proportions. Often they sculpt her breasts and torso so large, her head looks ridiculously tiny in comparison, and aesthetically, I just don't care for it. These Taito prize figures, however, always look reasonable to me! They achieve making her look heftier, without sacrificing realistic proportions, and I've been very tempted to start picking some of them up (to go with my always-growing Sonico collection). Thanks for a nice review to help seal the deal!

You make a very good point. One thing all the Taito Pochacos (this one, item #199359, and item #183168) have in common is that they keep her chubby and busty look intact *without* making her breasts bigger than her head. For example, if you compare Taito's item #183168 and FREEing's item #176424, I actually prefer the Taito offering. IMO, the FREEing figure just makes her head way too small relative to the rest of her body!

If you're tempted to start a Pochaco army, you really can't go wrong with any of the Taito Pochacos. Personally, I'm looking forward to item #397160 !

supreme_tyrant (19 days ago) #19734553Well done review!
I owned it some time ago and she is beautiful!

murdoch (19 days ago) #19720338uhg she's too cute <3
I outa buy this one, I didn't know her back sculpt was so nice


Sometimes with cheap prizes, they skimp on detail, so I was surprised to see all the detail on Pochaco's back. If you like the character, this is a great inexpensive figure, so go for it!

mermaids (19 days ago) #19723824She's so happy and cute! I've been wanting to get her for a while. Those seam lines are pretty bad though...

One of my favorite things about this figure is Pochaco's sunny expression. About the seam lines, you see them a lot on arms and legs, but the ones on this figure are in such a conspicuous area!
