Well, this's my first time to write article here. Since S.H.Figuarts and figma decide to sell same character with same costume, so I decided to do the review to compare them.

I'm not good in English so I try not to say much and use pictures instead.

Start with the box art.

S.H.Figuarts' box art is pretty good while figma is the same as other. I just hope that one day figma will change it.

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

Let's look at the figures.

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

Figma do really great job on costume, there is a sheet to cover the articulation while S.H.F is not.

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

Figma use clear part to attach the wings to figure but S.H.F use ball joint. So S.H.F's is movable while figma is not.

Figma use clear white color the wing while S.H.F use nomal white with blue highlight.

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

For the articulations, I think that figma do better work than S.H.F. Figma use new body for sakura, the shoulders can pulled away from the body which make it has wider range of motion.

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag97/borworn8/sakura%20compare/DSC_0611_zpsd8opm0kw.jpg


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

figma still do better on this part, you can lift its legs higher than S.H.F and it also look smoother than S.H.F when bend the knee

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag97/borworn8/sakura%20compare/DSC_0612_zpsw86ef0fd.jpg


And yes, figma also better to spread its legs

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag97/borworn8/sakura%20compare/DSC_0613_zpsuqetozrs.jpg


We can spread figma's skirt so it can ride on the wand.

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag97/borworn8/sakura%20compare/DSC_0614_zpswwdazfw9.jpg




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

Though figma has articulated point on the body but S.H.F do better on this one.

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag97/borworn8/sakura%20compare/DSC_0623_zpsiqfe4rne.jpg



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

For the face part, S.H.Figuarts has 4 in totals while figma only has 3.

First the smiling face.


http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag97/borworn8/sakura%20compare/DSC_0625_zpshagvqnmv.jpg


Next one........ I don't know how to call this one so I decided to call it Action Face.


http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag97/borworn8/sakura%20compare/DSC_0628_zpsommqqvbn.jpg


And the last is close-eye face.

One more picture for the same pose

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

That's all

Some of my friends say that they prefer S.H.F since it look like the anime than figma. But some also say that figma is better and base from the manga. So I don't want to say which one is better.


But in my opinion...................

Loved the article! Figma wins by a landslide in my opinion! No competition there for me!

I have both and I prefer the Figuarts because is anime accurate, every time that I look to the Figma is like seeing some random anime girl dressed like Sakura. The dress in the Figma wins though. I would have said that Figma wins in accesories because of the wings for the wand, but the second Figuarts will bring an anime accurate one, is sweet that GSC decided to put such a great accesories in one release though.

I think figma are way better than SHF, but Bandai still improved a lot this year. The new Love Live! Figuarts, for example, look amazing to me.

Hha the last pict, great job at the review, i got both figures as well, maybe someone will disagree with me but the shf face feels lifeless to me compared to the figma, and im not liking the shoulder joint at all and totally agree with your opinion hha.

I think your English was fine. Also I think the Figma version is better overall, it looks more smooth ect. I do think S.H.Figuarts does a very good job on the dress.

Kirenisa I am a collector!
the SH had some nice touches like the box and the magic circle BUT the figma by far is better looking overall.

The figma version is a lot more polished but both are still nice. (Those paint transfers on the Figuart though....) As someone already mentioned, you don't usually see the same character done by different companies so this was a great item to review.

Fantastic review! :D
