Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ + Lucky☆Star - Hiiragi Kagami SEGA

! There is a wall of text in the beginning! If you want to see the figure + pictures and not the background information, you can scroll down a bit. ;) !

! There will be a few panties shots in this review in a spoiler tag !

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Hiiragi Kagami ENCYCLOPEDIA #1624 from Lucky Star ENCYCLOPEDIA #17 ! You can see her cosplaying as the character Kaga ENCYCLOPEDIA #55360 from from Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ ENCYCLOPEDIA #52215 . This is a prize figure ITEM #271939 made by SEGA ENCYCLOPEDIA #7642 .

I will start off with telling some more about her background.

Background

As both franchises are very popular and well known, I won't ramble on too long about the background of this character and figure. Lucky Star is a really cute comedy manga and anime, that also has a lot of references to other franchises. Cosplaying is also a thing in the series and already there have been many collaborations of Lucky Star characters cosplaying as characters from other anime and games. Kantai Collection has been especially getting popular in the last 2 years and was originally an online strategy game with personifications of boats.

The reason why and how I got her

As a huge fan of both franchises and especially the Mecha Musume genre (Moe Anthropomorphism with military hardware), I knew I had to order the full set once they got released. So I did! It was a no-brainer for me. I bought this one from a reputable seller on eBay.

This figure's pose and looks were directly modelled after the above artwork. The main differences between the artwork and the figure are the colors. The clothes are lighter on the figure and her hair is darker. Also the expression comes off a bit differently on the figure, but I can't really put my finger on it. Maybe that's because of the eyebrows being less visible on the figure.

Just like the others in this set, the colors of the box are very bright and matching for the character! Interesting is that one of the sides of the box shows assembly instructions for the bow this figure comes with. The other side shows the artwork the character was based on. Backside shows an Kadokawa seal of authenticity sticker.

Kagami comes in a two-layer blister. The back blister only holds the base, while the front holds the figure and loose accessories.

Hoo boy, here we go! As you can see by the instructions there is not a place to tie a knot or secure the string to the bow. This means you really have to perfectly line up the string yourself to make sure it doesn't shift in place.

View spoilerHide spoilerSorry for blurry picture. Inbetween the previous picture and this one there is at least 15 minutes of time, accompanied with a lot of cursing because of the string snapping loose again and again and...again.

The string is actually quite thick, so it's not easy to recreate the second image from the instructions. Which is why after a lot of fiddling I made up my own way of tying it up. The figure has been on display for more than half a year now without it snapping loose, so I can say it works!

I'm pretty happy with the end result actually! Now I just have to hope it never comes loose again, so I don't have to go through this a second time. Also my string is maybe a bit loose, but I wanted to be sure there is no strain on the PVC bow.

My first thought after having her set up completely is what an interesting figure this is to look at! Lots of loose parts on the base, intricate posing and a cute hairstyle!

Looking at all the details!

Starting off with Kagami's face, her expression is simple and cute. I really like how there is an actual sculpted mouth gnawing on the ribbon. With this figure I was a bit afraid that it would rather be the ribbon being glued to her face, giving a 'noodle slurping'-look as seen with ITEM #166043 .

I really like how Kagami's hair is styled. Kaga also wears her hair in a tail to the side and the long and layered hair of Kagami makes it interesting to look at! Kagami also has pretty wild bangs here, which are sculpted very nicely.

Her clothes give off a good first impression. The only thing very noticeable is that her arms were casted seperately from the rest of her body and later glued on. There are gaps to be seen from this.

Here you can see a gap in between her shoulder and arms a bit more. There is also one small PVC leftover to be seen on the biggest hair weft. You can also see some glue leftovers at her hand, where she is holding the ribbon.

What I like here is how her hair splits up in two parts from the side-tail, with a small piece draped to the front. This hairdo looks so cute on Kagami!

With my copy of the figure, a bit of this glue has leaked to the ribbon, causing the paint to look a bit lighter in color there.

The ribbon itself has a nice sculpt, with a bit of movement in it. The bottom locks of Kagami's hair look really pretty too!

I like the delicate posing of Kagami's hands. The right hand looks a bit bigger/chunkier than the left hand, but it's not too bothersome. On her left hand, you can see a small painting error on her glove. The sides of her arms have a bit of a seamline.

Kaga wears a part of her flight deck on her waist, and on this figure it is a very clean looking sculpt with a nicely detailed decal. Directly underneath you can see the ribbon of her skirt, which looks a bit rough, but is still very nice looking for a prize figure. View spoilerHide spoilerI always feel like a huge nitpicker while reviewing prize figures.

The pleated skirt has an especially nice and clean looking sculpt. I really like the shape the pleats have.

The pleats have a very consistent look all around. On her waist, Kaga (and thus Kagami) wears an small bag. To be honest I'm not sure which part of the ship this bag is modelled after (most Kantai girls have loose accessories of one of the guns, but this doesn't look like that).

There is a bit of bleeding and a small seamline to be seen on the strap of the bag. The bag itself also has a pretty visible seamline on all it's sides and a bit of messy painting at the bottom (where it should have been a straight line at the part the color black starts). The detailing is top notch in my opinion.

Kagami wears nicely fitted knee-high socks (which double as tabi). On my copy, there is a small painting error on the inside of her left leg. With the socks I like how after the part with the elastic, there seems to be a bit of a 'flesh bulge' above (which is realistic with a person wearing socks like that).

I have always loved the shoe designs of Kantai Collection characters! They always try to incorporate fashionable or traditional shoes with a ship design. Kaga(mi) wears geta modelled after the bottom of the aircraft carrier she represents. The detailing on the shoes is very nice. The small strap at the top has a bit of paint bleeding.

Let's not forget the additional accessories she comes with! Posing them like they're intended to makes them stick out of the base a bit. Considering all the bases for the figures in this set are quite huge, it's nice to see a base getting more used than being just a plain disk. Them sticking out so much is a bit of a downside, though.

The arrows and the case they're held in, are very nicely detailed. The bow is sturdier than it looks, but should still be treated with care because of the string.

The aircraft deck is a simple cast, with a nicely added decal.

With having all these items loose on the base, I can imagine some people thinking it looks cluttered. I have seen people that display her with as much parts attached as possible, like here: PICTURE #1468660 . As long as you don't touch the figure I think the aircraft deck will hold well and with the bow you would have to trust your own skills in assembling!

Kaga also shows a bit of her white panties in her damaged version, so Kagami is wearing the correct underwear! There is bit of detailing here, such as a sewing seam at the front and a small crease at the back.

This figure gets you a very good view of her panties because of the widely shaped skirt.


Summary or tl;dr

Positive
- Nicely sculpted, especially for a prize figure.
- Strong looking posing with a cute hairdo for Kagami.
- Her mouth is sculpted.

Neutral
- Accessories that should be laid down loose on the base.

Negative
- Some paint defects here and there.
- Horrible assembly for the bow.

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
Not as impressive of a sculpt than others in this set (with huge ship parts), but I still appreciate the small details here and there. Especially how the ribbon is hold in her mouth.

Painting 8/10
Very nice most of the time. The main defects for me to point out are some random splotches of paint and dabs of glue, which will vary on each copy.

Posing 8/10
Most simple in posing from all of the figures in the set. It makes her stand out from the others, but I think in a good way as the posing is very in-character.

Base 8/10
This figure makes the most use of the big base the figures of this set come with. With the loose accessories all of the base (and a bit more) is filled.

Packaging 8/10
Birght colors and a cute design on the box.

Enjoyment 9/10
With this figure, I have a lot of enjoyment as she was my last one to complete this set! Overall the sculpting is very nice for a prize figure.

Conclusion

This is a very solid prize figure and a must if you are completing this set! These Kantai Collection x Lucky Star figures are the most recent SEGA prizes I own, and they have defenitely stepped up their game when it comes to quality!

Availability

In general this set seems to be a bit more rare nowadays. When this figure was just released you could find her multiple times for around 1500 yen on Mandarake, with her quickly selling out. If you live in the US or Europe, you probably get the cheapest and easiest deal by getting this one on eBay from a Japanese seller. I see multiple available available right now, with prices like $25-$30 including free shipping (that's the price and place I got her from too)! As far as I know, no bootlegs are made from her, but it's always good to keep an eye out!

But who is the best one from this set?

I was actually looking forward to Miyuki the most, as her design is one of my favorite ships from Kantai. Unfortunately Miyuki also has the most defects of all, which makes my enjoyment of her lower.

Kagami here is the most simple of them all, which actually makes her also the most 'boring' of the set? The posing of the figure is very in-character, but she misses a bit of that 'spark' others of this set have.

When it comes to how in-character and fitting it is, I'll have to go with Shimakaze Konata. Konata is also a cosplayer in the series and the small Rensouhou's that are modelled after her friends are amazingly cute!

Looking at quality, I'll have to give Tsukasa the first place there. She has the least amount of defects, the best shading and really nicely sculpted details.

So for me it's a tie with Konata and Tsukasa! I have also added a poll with this blog to see what MFC thinks!

Displaying them alltogether can be done quite dynamic, but you'll need risers to have all of them visible.

Because of a lot of my figures still being in storage and I had no time yet to set up my new figure room, I have them temporarily displayed like this. This picture made me realise that I should really put my other cosplaying Konata ITEM #99405 on the base of Shimakaze Konata!

And to finish it!

Halcione (6 months ago) #18850161Somehow I missed the poll :x
Wellp, she's getting crushed. Guess the Shimakaze + Konata combo too strong :V


Yeah, Shimakaze is also the #1 popular one with Kan Colle, so this could have been expected. xD

Woodman (6 months ago) #18849990What turntable are you using? I do a similar thing in my vids and I have yet to find one that doesn't wobble....Well, without spending a few hundred dollars on one anyways.
The Search Continues.


It was a mid-price range one from eBay. I looked through my old searches, but I bought it too long ago so it doesn't show up anymore, sorry. :(

I don't know which kind you have, but I recommend one that comes with an adapter to use in your power outlet instead of one working on batteries. The one with adapters seem to be a lot more...eh strong? Not sure if that is the right word, I hope you know what I mean. xD

Halcione (6 months ago) #18850144She's my favorite from this set, it's a pretty cute figure :)

Go vote for her! Shimakaze is winning, haha! :D

Maakie (6 months ago) #18847089Indeed! :D And I'm very happy with them! :)
I think all of the Kan Colle characters they chose for this set are very good matches with the Lucky Star counterparts. :)
Are you planning on completing the set now that you've seen all the reviews and pictures or are you keeping to to Shimakaze Konata only? ^^


Since I'm closing in on 400 figures (and I have finite space available :) ), and I'm not really a KanColle fan (although I do like Shimakaze's design, which is why that Konata figure appealed to me), I'll probably end up passing on the rest of the set.

victorviper (6 months ago) #18846392And the set is complete :).
Some of the details are pretty neat, like the shoes that mimic the multi-decked carrier personified by Kaga, and the ribbon-in-mouth seems very well done, as that is an effect that can be very tough to execute properly.
Since I don't know much about KanColle other than it exists and that for a while about 1/3 of the figures made were from that franchise, I had to do a little reading up on the Kaga character. Apparently she's pretty serious which I suppose is a good match for Kagami's tsundere disposition :).
