iLucky☆Star - Izumi Konata Summer School Uniform figure (SEGA)7.5/10

! 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. ;) !

The pantyshot in this review has been put in spoiler, so this is a sfw review!

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Izumi Konata encyclopedia #1622 in her Summer School Uniform from Lucky Star encyclopedia #17 ! This figure item #28954 is made by SEGA encyclopedia #7642 . Keep in mind when reading this review that she is an 'older' prize figure, at almost 7 years old.

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

Background

Lucky☆Star is mainly known for it's cute and funny anime, but started of as a 4koma manga. The series follows the daily life of a group of cute of high school girls, all with very different personalities.

The main character from this franchise is Izumi Konata and at this point I don't really feel like she should get an introduction, as she is a very iconic anime character. Konata has a lot of 'weird' hobby's and is not ashamed to voice them. She is mainly known for her enthusiasm about anime, manga, games and cosplay. Which is why so much anime- and mangafans love Konata!

If someone reading this review hasn't seen/read Lucky☆Star, I would definitely recommend to at least give the anime series a try. It's very cute, funny and relatable.

The reason why and how I got her

I remember seing this figure and the matching Kagami item #28953 at a convention short after their release. I don't remember the exact price, but I do know they could only be bought as a set. As a big fan of Lucky Star, that didn't own any other Lucky Star figures back then, I took them home with me.

Original art

I don't think there is any specific artwork showing this posing and/or hairdo from Konata.

Konata wears her summer school uniform in this figure, which means it's a very loose fitting top with a quite short skirt.

Konata comes in a very bright looking box, matching very well with the happy and colorful looks of the series!

The box is quite 'generic', which is probably also because of the matching other figure from this set, coming in the exact same box. Nowadays I see that a lot less, but around 2010-ish, it was very normal for prize figures that come in a set, to have the exact same box.

No bootlegs should exist from this figure, but it's always good to keep an eye out on any licensing stickers. This box has one from Kadokawa.

Konata comes in a big two-piece blister. The figure is directly screwed on the base, making it one piece only.

My first impression from this figure is that she is very simple, but also very cute! I also love her hairstyle, and how she gives a bit of a sly look from certain angles.

Looking at all the details!

Starting with looking at Konata's face: Her eyes are huge and the small 3-mouth smile, makes her look very in-character! I like that her open mouth has a darker red outline, as it adds a bit more detail to the figure.

One downside and 'can't unsee' part of the face is how far away to the side her eyes are, especially if you try to ignore her bangs. Luckily, because of those bangs, the face looks more proportionate.

Konata's bangs are sculpted very nicely to the source material: they are quite big chunks. Seeing these bangs, made me glance at my more recent Konata prize figure item #238305 . Who turns out to have less details in her front-bang-sculpt, take a look for yourself: View spoilerHide spoiler

Konata wears her long hair in a big ponytail with some teased spikes at the top. I like how the hair at the back of her head looks 'pulled'.

I have a weird painting defect at the top of my copy of this figure, looks like a bit of blue paint came off. You can also see a big casting line at the side of her ponytail in this picture.

Also a bit strange is how the design of her hair at the back of her head suddenly changes into full-blown big front bangs. But I guess that's expecting a bit too much detail for the price range and age of this figure.

Konata's peace-hand is a bit out of proportion for a normal sized hand. As you can see, her two pointing fingers are actually too short if you compare them to the folded fingers. This gives the pointing fingers a bit of a stubby look. But, it looks like this is deliberately chosen style, considering Konata's proportions in the art style of the anime and manga.

Now, onto her cute uniform! Konata's loose fitting top has some nice details, such as creases in the sculpt and some painted lines. The lines are especially crisp, considering this is a prize figure.

The ribbon Konata wears on her chest looks a bit chunky, but is passable.

Konata's loose fitting top gives you a small peak underneath. There is some skin color painted, but there are no shown details. Her skirt is waisted too high to show her belly button.

The skirt itself has very nice sculpting, with the pleads and a bit of movement. The painting on the skirt is a bit more messy than the paint on other parts of this figure.

Because of the movement of the skirt, you can get quite a good look at her panties. Konata wears plain white panties, that show a few 'sewn' lines in the fabric.

But what I really like here, is that there is an underskirt. A lot of anime characters have 'magical floating' skirts, with no sign of anything underneath for the skirt to stay in this shape.

You can see a bit of the underskirt peeking out at some angles, which I think looks very cute.

Konata's legs are posed very cutely. She has very thin legs and wears high white socks. The painting here is crisp, but not very special.

Her uniform shoes show quite a lot of detail for a prize figure and are painted neatly. What you may also notice here is that her feet are absolutely tiny. Ultra tiny, super teeny tiny! Artistic choices, yadda yadda, but look at how small they are! It should not be easy for someone with that body size to stand on such tiny feet!

Tiny feet aside, this figure comes with a very cute base! Which is very rare with prize figures! The base is a star referencing to the star in the logo of Lucky☆Star! And even better...

The bases easily interlock because of their shape, giving you cute display options with this set!

The Points

Positive
- Very true to the original style of the character design.
- The only bigger figure of Konata in her summer school uniform.

Neutral
- This figure is maybe a bit too simple or basic compared to other Konata's on the market.

Negative
- Some parts look a bit too chunky or out of proportion (a bit too literal of a 2D to 3D transition).

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
Not perfect, but there are some cute details, such as her hairdo and the movement in her clothes.

Painting 8/10
A few uneven lines, but pretty nice for a prize figure. Some shading would have been nice, though.

Posing 7/10
A bit too simple for my tastes, but very in-character!

Base 8/10
I love the base! And I don't say that much with prize figures! It's pretty small and can interlock with others from this set.

Packaging 7/10
Bright and very true to Lucky Star, but a bit boring.

Enjoyment 7/10
I had a lot of fun displaying both Konata and Kagami for many years in my collection, but I have been thinking about selling them now that I own newer prize figures from these characters.

Conclusion

This is a pretty basic, but very clean prize figure from the very lovable Konata! If you really like Konata in her summer school uniform, this is also your only chance to get one, considering the only announced scaled in this outfit item #6184 was cancelled.

Availability

I haven't seen her for sale for a while, but I'm pretty sure that if you keep an eye out on the regular websites for second hand prize figures, you can pick her up for close to release price! I also see a few in stock on eBay right now for around $30-35 including shipping.

And to finish it!

Currently I have my figures in storage, but here is how I used to display her in my collection!

Here you can also see another way of displaying the two together while interlocking bases!

victorviper (2 months ago) #21246046Whenever I see this figure, I can't quite get past that issue with her fingers. From certain angles, it seems like her thumb is grotesquely large, too!

Yeah, the longer I stare at her hands, the more weird it gets. But I think for me the super small feet are more of a 'problem' actually...

While typing this review, I looked back and forth to images of Konata a lot and especially when looking at this one:

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/e4/87/67/e4876739100a774c5d34e6d3a6ec8c9b.jpg

The longer I look at that drawing, the more weird things I see too! I mean, I wouldn't want a figure with such tiny fingres as in this official artwork...
