iOrchid seed Blanc Neige7.67/10

Hello everyone welcome to my newest blog!

This time we look at Blanc Neige.
I still wonder why she is so cheap. She isnt a bad figure at all.
Well decide for yourself!

Also please keep in mind Ive owned this figure for a while, so it might show minor dust etc

Basic info:

1/7 scale and about 18.5 cm height

----------------------------------------------------------------------

- Pose

First off as usual, we take a look at all angles.

With cape

Without cape (she has an extra hand for this)

Well I'd say she looks way better with cape. Based on that it means the pose itself isnt too stunning, but it fits nicely with the displayed theme (cape and on ice) It is a rather unusual pose, which is what I like.

7/10

- Paint and sculpting

Now we take a closer look at the details.

First her cape.

nicely shaded , has wrinkles in it at the bottom, giving a nice effect to it.

They have a ''special'' hand for it, that holds the cape nicely. (removed it on purpose so you can see it)

now lets take a look at her shirt

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494842139.jpeg

close-up on her back, you see an emblem (wicca?)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494842459.jpeg

and her broche

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494842465.jpeg


and one of the sleeves

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494843193.jpeg


I'd say nothing noteworthy here. Nice details but a bit sloppy here and there.
if I have to say something, her belt (?) could be done better, plus the emblems.

her buttocks

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494842902.jpeg


well made I'd say, she has a good looking rear-end :)


now we take a look at her legs

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494842904.jpeg


look smooth, well done. A touch of shading where it should be.

and now lets check her face.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494842900.jpeg


typical tony taka style ofcourse. I am a fan of him so I love the face.
Looks fine enough the eyes are detailed and a slight smirk is seen.

onto her hair.
Id say this could be done better..

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494842908.jpeg


it looks a bit glued together and her headband is sloppy painted.
Plus some rough edges.


Overall definitly a solid 8/10 for both sculpting and painting.
Was leaning towards a 9 I admit... But the figure is just simple, color palette-wise... guess that might be why

- Base

well.. this base is exceptionally pretty!
So I added a lot of pictures

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1494843409.jpeg


Really the eyeecatcher of the overall figure id say!
Nicely sculpted looks very realistic.
Has some points where the figure should sit on, so it is easy to place her.

9/10 ( I dont give 10s as theres always room for improvement )

- Box

The Package/Box does what it has to do, it is pretty solid, her base is rather heavy yet it keeps it on the spot.

Only downside, hard to get her back in the box, if you ever want to..

7/10

-Enjoyment

Well at first I wanted to sell her, I admit.. but until recently I started to really like her again and found the perfect spot for her, so I am glad I didnt. Shes now in the 'tony taka element shelf'' (all representing an element)
But since I considered selling her, it means she wasnt stunning enough for me. I rate enjoyment wise a 7 now :)
Shes really pretty, especially the base.

Maakie (2 months ago) #21225956Nice to see a review of this one! I really think your photography is improving! :)
I really like her thighs and boots, haha! And for some reason I tend to like the older figures from Tony Taka's designs more than the recent ones.


Thanks for the huge compliment. Yesh I try hard and might start a course sooner or later so I wont use only auto mode and learn techniques. But for now im satisfied with this.

I agree with you.. the latest ones, none impressed me enough to make me buy..

Tiamat26 (2 months ago) #21152727Nice to see another great review from you, Chloe. I am glad that you decided to keep her. As for asking for the review, I may have but honestly, I do not remember. it's not really my thing to ask for reviews. None the less great review and I love all the pics. Even better that you found her a home in the Tony Taka elements shelf.

Titan_Scientist (2 months ago) #21133164Oh, she's really pretty.
Also, comparing her to the other Blanc Neige figures, her pose is definitely the best.


yeah it is why I gave a 7 in the end, but the pose is still not her best attribute here for sure...

yeah she is :) I do admit I fell more for the base than the actual figure tho lol
