iQues Q's 1/8 Touwa Erio8.83/10

♥ ♥ Welcome to my second review! ♥ ♥

´v` I had so much fun with the last one that I just had to make more. This time I took more pictures and will address more topics efficiently (or so I hope!)

Let's get started!

♥ ♥ Introduction ♥ ♥

I wanted to get this Erio for MONTHS. She was one of my most wanted Garage Kits, and when I heard she was getting a PVC rendition I WAS SOOOO HAPPY! :D I didn't know Ques Q, and at the moment I couldn't afford to pre-order her, so I decided to wait until she hit the bargain bin to order her... Or at least that was what I was planning to o
Just a couple of days before her release date, I caved in and ordered her (which didn't make much sense). I just couldn't take it anymore! And do I regret getting her? Should I'd been patient? Read on to find out UvU

This review contains quite many unavoidable pantsu shots. Just so you know ´v` ~ ♥

♥ ♥ Packaging ♥ ♥

A figure's first impression! Let's take a look at what this box has to offer

Quite nice, right? The box has a really pretty design, with three windows which provide a decent view of the figure (front, left side and top. This last one is shaped like a UFO :D). You could leave her in the box if desired, but you would be missing out on all the fun :0

It is kind of light and small, yet fairly sturdy. The insides also serve as a backdrop for pictures, though it is a bit too small;;
I would've appreciated if they included the illustration in which the figure was based off, but it's still a very nice box which gets the job done! Mine shipped through SAL small packet unregistered and got home without a scratch :D In overall a very nice box!


♥ ♥ Sculpting ♥ ♥

Let's make a short tour to see how she looks like!

ASLDKASJFLSKMTSHEEDTPF;;; SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL! No wonder I couldn't resist, look how gorgeous she is! From the tip of her toes to her sturdy ahoge, she is just... So perfect! (Actually no, she's not perfect, BUT SO CLOSSSSEEE)

Her face was one of my main worries when I got her, I was almost sure she would look somewhat derpy, that her mouth wouldn't work, that she would have "drugly" eyes and a "mascara mess", as seen in some other user pics... Was I glad when I got this!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450201.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450203.jpeg

Virtually flawless!! ´A` ♥♥ Ahh, so pretty! Her eyes are so bright and colorful, her mouth is so carefully carved into her face, and her pointy nose and chin! To die for, really ♥
However, her face can look a bit flat when looked at from below, and her ears aren't that nice once you notice them. The seam line of her neck could've been avoided but it's not that visible, and the rest of her distracts you from noticing it, so it's ok!

Let's move on to the hair, which is one of her main selling points!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450519.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450525.jpeg

Definitely the best hair in an Erio figure to date! Alter seems to have fallen asleep on this one, where's your Erio, huh? There are several seam lines, but they are integrated in her hairstyle quite well. The usual fringe seam line is hidden in between the bangs, and all the individual strands give it an amazing flow and presence. I can't stop staring at it ♥ v ♥
Most of it is hard PVC, so be careful not to drop her or else it would snap, and gluing it back would kill one of the effects it has (which I will address in the painting section!). Her ahoge and the cowlick at the side of her fringe, along with the single strand that comes across her left arm are all made of softer PVC, which I really appreciate ´v`

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450333.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450335.jpeg

Her hands are incredibly delicate and detailed, I'm so glad they took the time to sculpt her nails as well, they look so feminine and fragile! ♥
In contrast, take a look at her sleeves. See that extra mold? I find it quite distracting, though not too much. I feel like it could've been avoided. They made such a neat job on the hands, so why not on her sleeves?

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353454029.jpeg

Her feet are at a whole new level though, best feet I've seen in a figure to date. So delicate, so detailed, so carefully sculpted! The left one is a tad too flat imo, but still the most lovely pair of feet I've seen in a figure! (barefoot) So adorable.. And I don't even like feet!

Let's check her outfit out now

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450673.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450677.jpeg

As you can see, she's wearing her usual open shirt with a red ribbon to seal the deal. The shirt is a bit too thick, and there is residual mold here and there. It does have many wrinkles, it really looks as if she was wearing it, specially around the elbows and the wrists. Yo can really see her pulling the sleeves with her tiny fingers ♥ So cute!

The ribbon is divine, it has this cartoon-y feeling, I quite like how it turned out ´v`

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450675.jpeg

Her skirt (and what lays underneath) was sculpted so carefully! The layers look so natural, and the wrinkles, and the lace, and ahhhh ♥♥♥♥♥ It's just as if she were actually falling or flying on the UFO ´V` Such a nice sight! Beautifully detailed pantsu shot, by the way, completely adorable! ♥

Take a look at her bodyline, while we are at it (it's best appreciated when casted-off her skirt)

Beautiful sculpt! Most resembling to the character, gorgeous proportions and quite dynamic! Exceeded my expectations from Ques Q ´v`


♥ ♥ Painting ♥ ♥


We already looked at her beautiful face, but I shall repeat the pictures just so you don't have to scroll up again! (I AM SO NICE RIGHT)
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450201.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450203.jpeg

CHECK THAT FACE OUT
The decals on her eyes and the color picked for her mouth, and her delicate eyebrows, it all works just right! It seems I got lucky since other people have her upper lashes all over the place, and/or some red blush around her eyes, making her seem tired or drugly. I can't see any of that in my Erio, she is just.. Just lovely!

Next up is her hair, and the special effect I was talking about was.. DUN DUN DUNNNN
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451848.jpeg

CLEAR PLASTIC! I've never seen it work SO well in a figure before! (pff I get the feeling that'll change when I get Max Factory's Shana, NOW THAT'S FLAME HAIR)
It lacks some shading and highlights, but the transparent effect is just soo goooood that it makes up for it! ♥

Let's recycle some more pictures

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450673.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450675.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450677.jpeg

As you can see, they did apply some considerable shading to the bow, which looks adorable, but not that much on the shirt. I would've wanted more noticeable shading, but this amount is quite alright.
I do dislike the fact that they didn't paint the buttons of her shirt, they bothered to sculpt them after all!


Check out the accents they made around her knees, they are spot on, the incredible job they did on her skin really brings Erio to life!
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450956.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353450958.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451293.jpeg

Notice how the shaded the inside of the shirt as well, it looks quite nice! (Sorry for the blurry photo, I was running out of light >: )

The white stripe of her skirt is very neat as well! It bleeds in a place or two, but it's not noticeable unless you look for it. I also appreciate the fact they painted her nails, in both hands and feet! It is a really delicate touch ;v;

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451289.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451291.jpeg

Oh, by the way, the skirt is really soft pvc, I don't think there's any risk of breaking it even if you throw it out the window with all your might. It would get dirty, yeah, but I highly doubt you'll break it unless you are trying too.

The hair does have some issues though. The paint seems to have chipped somewhere in the process, though it's only noticeable in a few places:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451295.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451517.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451519.jpeg

Apart from that, it's lovely. I admit those scratches really bothered me in the beginning, but they aren't that bad!

In overall, the painting looks great! The skin, face, and skirt are the best, the hair's translucent effect is beautiful, and the shirt is somewhat OK. I just can't get enough of her flesh though, she looks so alive!


♥ ♥ Posing ♥ ♥


This is the illustration she was based on
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Wildstar1340467678.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451521.jpeg



To be honest, I think they did even better on the figure than the illustration. They deviated a bit on the position of the shirt , which looks better in the drawing, I'll give you that... But her eyes, and the extra of those curled adorable feet is just to die for! Beautiful pose, looks great from eye-level, and both above and below as well (though from above you miss out on her face, which is just nghh)

♥ ♥ Base ♥ ♥


This is one of those times in which the base really compliments the figure!
Let's look at it for a minute
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451850.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451852.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451858.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451860.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451862.jpeg

It's pretty nice! The metallic paint is perfectly suitable, and the peg has Erio resting securely (though when she is casted-off it looks a bit awkward... Not like I wanted to display her only in her panties. I rather have her with the skirt on ´v` ♥ )

All in all, beautiful base! It serves its' purpose and more, I am definitely satisfied <3



♥ ♥ Enjoyment ♥ ♥


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Stalking1353451523.jpeg

This is an Erio I am going to treasure from now until forever. Her charming face and playful pose just beg for attention, I can't keep my eyes of her! I most definitely do not regret this purchase, and if I had to do it, I'd get her all over again! Is she worth retail price? For me, she is! Her defects are out-shined by her good points. If I were rich I would get an extra, because she is just so pretty!

Definitely recommended to Erio lovers and appreciators ´v`
Sure, yours may come with a face not as nice as the one I got, but I'd say it is still worth it. Lovely figure, one of my favorites!


Hope you enjoyed reading the review, see you next time!

filthyweeb (2 months ago) #18141634I dont get it how i can remove her skirt? Please help

I don't own this figure anymore, but if I remember correctly, you can pull her torso apart from her legs and remove the skirt upwards.
Push gently and it should give way.

Good luck~

MojkGraysword (4 years ago) #1373369I've just ordered her. It's all your fault!!
Hace un tiempo, después de ver el anime "salí" a buscar la figura de Erio que materializara a la comestible adolescente. Pero después de mucho comparar no me decidí por ninguna y en la indecisión me olvidé de Erio. Sin embargo, esta versión fue la que más me gustó en su momento...
Después de leer la review no hubo "pero" de mi billetera que valga.


Jajaja! Justamente pensaba en esta review el otro día. Creo que quedé medio hipnotizada por las cosas buenas que tiene, y no le presté tanta atención a las cosas malas. Ahora que pasó un poco más de tiempo, probablmente no le daría una calificación tan cercan a 9, sino más a 8.

Es preciosa, y probablemente siga siendo mi Erio favorita por muuucho tiempo, pero podría mejorarse, en el departamento del pelo especialmente xD

De todas maneras me fascina, es igual a ella!

Qué la disfrutes <3

KaibaLife (4 years ago) #1239361ahhhh, you're making me want her even more! Actually, I just realized I could probably get away with displaying her in the corner of my room so you can only see the pantsu shot from my desk. \ ; v ; / ah, now I have have have have to get her. Maybe I'll beg for her for Christmas ; w ;
Kissing my figures goodnight, yep, that totally sounds like something I would do. Darling Erio~ c:



Hope you can actually get her ´v` She's really lovely <3

Stalking (4 years ago) #1238996Okay, hey, she's not even suggestive, seriously! She is just so cute \;A;/ You could take her out every night and kiss her goodnight (?)

It's not even suggestive, why not get her and keep her in her box until you can display her? I have figures on order that I know I won't be able to take out until my parents aren't home or I get to move out definitely ;v;/ (Like GIFT's lolita Sonico)

Akira (4 years ago) #1238758LOL, y yo que pensaba ahorrarme algo xDDD Làstima que Alter no sacase una Erio :C

mal, me quedé esperando sentada u_u
04 years agoAkiraAkira
Stalking (4 years ago) #1238669Ambas xD
Yo creo que esta Erio se parece más a la del programa, se apega más al diseño original, pero la de Koto también es preciosa... No la tengo así que no sabría decirte. Es más "bonita" la de Koto, más.. más desu (?) Esta es más detallada, o al menos me da esa impresión.
Ambas! XD


LOL, y yo que pensaba ahorrarme algo xDDD Làstima que Alter no sacase una Erio :C
