This is Sonico. Sonico has boobs, and a small bikini. If you hate boobs and small bikini's, move on. But seriously, who hates boobs???


Getting this figure home was a pain. The Labor Day holiday meant it got to sit in the customs office for longer than it was actually on a truck/plane. Then, they couldn't try to deliver it while I was taking a vacation day. Noooo, they had to wait until I was back at work an unable to leave early due to reasons. I did eventually get to pick her up, grumbling as I may be. Add to that the crazy shipping cost, and well, excitement may be a little low.


Super Sonico with Macaron Tower ITEM #360476


I've said it before, I'll say it again. I'm not the biggest Super Sonico fan. Maybe it's because she's everywhere that I'm kinda burnt out on her? That doesn't mean she doesn't look good! I've been willing to accept her into my collection twice now, and I am very pleased with the figures of her I do own! They look quite nice together.

The thing that really caught my eye on this figure was her bikini. The pastel colors really work for Sonico, along with the frilly theme. In the preview pictures, it almost looked like cake fondant. While fondant isn't really that yummy, it looks great, and is covering yummy cake. And on this figure, it is covering something else that would be quite yummy, wink wink. :)

Macaron's are one of Sonico's favorite treats. So it makes sense that she gets a figure with them being a part of it. They are very detailed. The ones that she holds with her hand, and is presenting to you with her cleavage are very tiny. So be very careful not to lose them. One fear that many people had was that the cleavage macaron would be permanantly attached. Those fears are put to rest as it is completely detachable. Rather than mar her chest with a peg hole however, Alphamax opted to include some white putty to help hold it in place so it doesn't get lost. The putty should be safe for the paint. As for her Macaron Tower, I kinda think it's a pointless accessory. It doesn't really make sense to me, but it is what it is.

This Sonico figure comes with a very, very large base. She herself is also very large. While she is listed as a 1/7th scale figure, I think she is more of a 1/6th, or even more. This combines to make her box fairly large. Then it doesn't fit in the smaller standard AmiAmi boxes, so they had to use a larger one with lots of paper. This all drove the shipping cost up to over 4000 yen EMS to the US. That hurt.

Still, as I said, Sonico is a lovely figure. She is excellently sculpted, and I can't find any paint flaws on my copy of her. Her skin tone is a little bit on the yellow side, but if you think of her as having a slight tan (makes sense since she's in a bikini), it works.

Dribz (1 year ago) #14673219Thank you for this quick review! She's on her way to me right now (hopefully being delivered today!), and I'm even more excited to have her. I'm a big Sonico nerd, so I have several figures of her, but this one looks like it's going to be one of my gems!
She is a pretty good figure of Sonico. I think you'll be happy!

Nice to know that boob macaron is detachable. The putty they use is similar to poster tack, so it should be fine.

I'm quite excited for it, really - I wanted to cancel my order but then I saw her pics out of the box and I just.. couldn't. She's so pink and lovely. And that macaron tower is really important!

she might end up being my first sonico someday. depending on the size of the macaron tower it could be cute to display/photograph with nendos or figmas.

HobbyCentric (1 year ago) #14650284Yep, another Sonico I'd love to add but I'm holding off on.
Maybe once you get your room finished and the new display in place.

I got her myself, I was able to fit her nicely with my other Sonico even though the base is huge.
Usually though, I don't display them with these kinda bases.

I like to use the bases even if not necessary, but yeah, this one is a little crazy.

murialita (1 year ago) #14650267I tried making it slower, but then it was too jumpy. And I can't really fit more frames in and stay under the 4 MB limit.

You spin me right round~

Nice review though!

victorviper (1 year ago) #14650266I'm sort of torn on this figure. I do like me some Sonico, and her colorful outfit is neat, but it seems like this figure might be kind of a space hog with that big macaron tower. I guess she could be displayed without it, but then that sort of defeats the whole point of the figure. Use of the putty to hold her oppai macaron in place worries me a little too; it seems to me it would have been better to just permanently attach that piece.
In any event, thanks for posting this unboxing!


She is definitely a space hog. Her base is something like 10 inches in diameter. It's not necessary, but I like to use the bases that come with the figures.
