Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ + Lucky☆Star - Takara Miyuki SEGA

! 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. ;) !

! There will be a few panties shots in this review in a spoiler tag !

Welcome to my all-new-and-improved reviews! Today I will be talking about a figure of Takara Miyuki ENCYCLOPEDIA #1627 from Lucky☆Star ENCYCLOPEDIA #17 In this figure ITEM #264881 you can see her cosplaying as the character also called Miyuki ENCYCLOPEDIA #60307 from Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ ENCYCLOPEDIA #52215 . This is a prize figure made by SEGA ENCYCLOPEDIA #7642 .

I will start off with telling some more about the background of this figure.

Background

As both franchises are very popular and well known, I won't ramble on too long about the background of this character and figure. Lucky Star is a really cute comedy manga and anime, that also has a lot of references to other franchises. Cosplaying is also a thing in the series and already there have been many collaborations of Lucky Star characters cosplaying as characters from other anime and games. Kantai Collection has been especially getting popular in the last 2 years and was originally an online strategy game with personifications of boats.

The reason why and how I got her

As a huge fan of both franchises and especially the Mecha Musume genre (Moe Anthropomorphism with military hardware), I knew I had to order the full set once they got released. So I did! It was a no-brainer for me.

This figure's pose and looks were directly modelled after the above artwork. It's an almost direct recreation, there are no big differences I can point out. The only tiny nitpick is that the figure doesn't have the blush on her cheeks.

My first impression was that the figure was a lot bigger than I expected! The huge and high disc base, make her also take up quite some space display-wise.

Looking at all the details!

Let's start off with her cute face! I love her expression! As earlier mentioned, she is missing any blush at her cheeks. That would have made this figure even cuter! I'm really happy with how her glasses look. A lot of prize figures (and sometimes even scaled figures) have very 'foggy' glasses. These are very clean.

Miyuki's hair and clothes show a few rough edges, as expected from a prize figure. My copy also got a bit of paint defects at the top of her hair.
Is that a fingerprint I see at the white spot?!

I really adore the hairstyle they thought of for this design. It makes it look like she has shorter hair!

Unfortunately the edges of her hair at the backside are very rough. I can't remember any other recent prize figures I bought with such rough looking hair or other parts.

Let's continue with complaining on her hair: this tab at the top is horrible! I'm getting flashbacks to when I reviewed Furyu's Aria prize figure ITEM #83717 / blog/14166 .

Let's switch to mini Miyuki next to her! She is really tiny! Which is especially impresive for this being a prize figure.

Unfortunately mini Miyuki also suffers from rough hair edges, which is really a shame, considering the decals and small painted pieces look very nice.

One of the eye-catchers of this figure is of course the ship-parts Miyuki is wearing! There is no shading to be found on these pieces, but the overall size and detailing make up for it, especially the small anchor looks very good! Still, I think they could have tried to make a bit more of this. I've been thinking of maybe adding some simple shading myself on this figure.

Miyuki's uniform looks very nicely detailed. The skirt shows a realistic amount of wrinkles and the amount of seam lines is a lot less on the clothing than the ship parts.

Such a huge mold line (actually more a square I guess) at the bottom here. Come on Sega, I have a lot of your prize figures with less defects! I know this design is very elaborate for a prize figure, but I can't overlook this.

Luckily the cuteness and cleanliness of her uniform makes up for a lot of small complaints! The bow is very nicely sculpted and painted. I also really love the movement in her shirt, you can even see a bit of her belly.

Miyuki has very cute legs~ I'm a bit annoyed at the sides of her belt not being painted, though.

Miyuki's socks also showing the anchor is a cute detail! There is a bit of glue leftover to be seen at the bottom of her socks. I think the figure's feet are a loose part that was glued onto the rest, causing these leftovers.

Something I absolutely love, also on the Kantai Collection character design, are the shoes. They are such a perfect combination of bulky mecha musume, while still being comfortable looking shoes! On this figure the execution of the shoes, especially in sculpt is very nice. Quite a difference compared to the more bulky parts on her legs and back!

As I expected from her personally, Lucky Star Miyuki is wearing plain white panties. I know from Kantai Collection Miyuki's character design that plain, white panties are canon for her. The panties have a slight crease, but you can't see much more from them with this figure's posing.


Summary or tl;dr

Positive
- Very cute concept and execution!
- Bright see-through glasses (not 'foggy' as with a lot of other figures)
- Really big and nicely detailed ship-parts!

Neutral
- Figure is a bit plain at some points. Especially the lack of shading. Still, I can't be too hard on that, considering it's a prize.

Negative
- Very rough edges at her hair.
- Small paint defects, will vary with each copy.
- Seamlines.

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
I'm really impressed with the sculpting on a lot of parts of the figure! Especially the mecha parts look great! The hair is the only part that sculpting-wise stands out for the rough edges it has. I also have to add here that I give extra credit to SEGA for making a prize figure of such an elaborate design.

Painting 7/10
Painting-wise there are a lot of parts that could be improved here. It's not too bad either, just not that impressive. A bit of shading would have let the big, bulky same-colored parts really stand out!

Posing 8/10
Cute! Very in-character for Lucky Star's Miyuki! The small Miyuki next to her as an extra figure is also super cute. Her sitting pose gives you a good look at the mecha parts.

Base 6/10
A big and bulky disc. The purple/pink part that is used for her to sit on and make mini-Miyuki "jump" stand out quite a bit compared to the rest.

Packaging 8/10
Cute packaging design! Does it's work well.

Enjoyment 9/10
One of my favorite Kan Colle mecha-designs combined with cutie pie Miyuki from Lucky Star? What's not to like! Well, the small complaints I have about sculpt and paint I guess...that's why I gave it a 9/10.

Conclusion

If you're a fan of either Miyuki's, this is a really nice figure to add to your collection! Really nicely in-character and with a posing combination I haven't seen before. I definitely recommend this one!

Availability

She seems to be a bit more rare nowadays. When this figure was just released you could find her on a lot of sites for 1000-2000 yen. Now she doesn't pop up much anymore on Japanese sites and seems to go for 2000-2500 average. If you live in the US or Europe, you probably get the cheapest deal getting this one on eBay from a Japanese seller. I always see multiple available from her over there too, with prices like $25-$30 including free shipping (that's the price and place I got her from too)! As far as I know, no bootlegs are made from her, but it's always good to keep an eye out!

And to finish it!

Currently I have my figures in storage, but here is an display example of this set!

victorviper (9 months ago) #17469460After the Konata in this line came out, I was pretty excited about seeing how the rest of the cast would turn out, but I kind of lost interest for some reason. I thought about getting Miyuki a few times, but nothing about the figure ever screamed "must buy". Maybe it's the fact that I'm really all that knowledgeable about KanColle in general. Shimakaze was the one character I knew well, and so the Konata+Shimakaze combination worked for me, but I didn't even realize before reading this review that Miyuki was cosplaying as another character named Miyuki :).
If someone would only do full-sized Strike Witches/Lucky Star crossover figures a la ITEM #99405, then that would be something! Miyuki could be Lynette, Kagami could be Perrine, ...
In any event, thanks for the review!


To be honest, at first I thought Miyuki was cosplaying Fubuki from Kan Colle, but in my defence Fubuki and KC Miyuki are very similar in gear...

I guess Shimakaze and Konata is such a perfect combo, because both of the are the main attention grabbers for their own series. I wouldn't be surprised if most people keep it to Konata only or keep it to their main girl only (especially the Kagami from this line seems very popular). They're not super expensive figures, but in the end still prizes, so they won't "wow" you, unless you love the design and/or both franchises.

Haha, I give permission for them to continue the Lucky Star x Strike Witches line, even if they decide to all make them as trading figures! :D

No problem, glad you liked it! :)

secretly-otaku (9 months ago) #17469427Thank you for this review! Konata approves it (─‿‿─.)
Miyuki definitely looks really, really nice from a distance but, even considering you can always expect defects in prize figures, the finished product doesn't seem to be something as recent as 2015, since prize figures overall have gone up so much in terms of quality in the past couple of years. Nevertheless, as a fan of both frachises, just the fact we're getting a crossover like this is very welcome! For me, is just as good as the Madoka x Monogatari crossover.
I'm really looking forward for your review for Kagami, since I believe she looks very much in character in her cosplay as Kaga, even more than Konata as Shimakaze xP. Are you going to review her by herself or are you going to review both sisters at the same time? Either way, hoping to read your next review soon!


I feel really happy whenever I see my Shimakaze Konata! It fits her so well~

I also think this prize figure is of lower quality than other recent prize figures. I mainly blame it on the elaborate design. Wanting to put everything from that design in there, made SEGA cheap out on other parts of the figure...

I'm planning on two seperate reviews as otherwise it would be a huge load of pictures and writing for me, haha! Kagami's review I will do after Tsukasa! :) How quick I can do them, I'm not sure yet. It will depend on how busy my job is in the following weeks!

I was thinking about purchasing the whole Set. Now, after reading I don't longer have to think about it. ^^
As a Fan of both Series you have to grab.
And also as a Fan of Crossovers and Cosplays this is a nice Eyecatcher in the showcase. (─‿‿─)♡


No problem, glad you like it! I wish you lots of fun hunting for them~ :)

Luckily there are many crossovers with the Lucky Star girls and I can't wait for more of them! :)
