Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ Lucky☆Star - Hiiragi Tsukasa SEGA

MaakieMaakie10 months agoReview
! 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 review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Hiiragi Tsukasa ENCYCLOPEDIA #1625 from Lucky Star ENCYCLOPEDIA #17 ! You can see her cosplaying as the character Haguro ENCYCLOPEDIA #54349 in her Kai Ni form from from Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ ENCYCLOPEDIA #52215 . This is a prize figure ITEM #271940 made by SEGA ENCYCLOPEDIA #7642 .
I will start off with telling some more about her background.

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. I bought this one from a reputable seller on eBay.

This figure's pose and looks were directly modelled after the above artwork. The main differences compared to the artwork is that Tsukasa has a lot less blush and her hair is less messy. Except for those small two nitpicks, it's a good recreation of the original art!

The box is in a very bright style and color, I like it! One of the sides shows the next one up in this line, her sister Kagami ITEM #271939 and the other side her original artwork. The back shows standard disclaimers with a prize figure and a Kadokawa sticker of authenticity.

Tsukasa comes with only two pieces: The figure (with already attched the "pole" that will keep her up) and a big disc base.

Oh my, isn't she a cutie? Tugging at her outfit to keep it down. Such a dynamic figure!

First impression is very good. There is a decent amount of damage and shading on her ship parts and her posing looks really good.

Looking at all the details!

Let's start with her face! As earlier mentioned there is a lot less blushing going on than what you see in her artwork. Still, there is a bit of blush on her cheeks. I would have loved to see her more emberassed, though!

There is a cute and intricate detail of an hair clip with ribbon. Her pointy hair also looks very nice.

The sculpting and painting of her clothes is very impressive! Okay, I'll admit that the ripped parts are a bit blotchy maybe, but what a detail on a prize figure! The painting on all the small lines here is really good! I am especially surprised after looking so much at Miyuki in comparison ITEM #264881 for her review blog/31702 !

Her gloves look a bit bulky. Especially her fingers look quite big this way.

Her ship parts have quite a lot of details in small damages. The dents and rips are also sculpted!

At the back you can see a few rough parts andleftovers in the sculpt of the ship parts, as also seen by Miyuki.

In this picture you can also see some really nice weight distribution, as most of the ship parts lean on the pole of the base.

Also to be seen here is the (partially ripped) backside of Tsukasa's outfit. The outfit also looks great from the back! The only thing I can point out here is that the black line at the back of her collar isn't finished, but come on, it's a prize figure!

Tsukasa wears knee-high socks with this outfit, that also show some tears. Again, nicely detailed for a prize figure. In this picture you can also see the mayor seamlines on this figure, which is on te right side of both legs.

The paint at the top of her socks is a bit crude, but luckily only visible from the backside. At this point I just feel like I'm incredibly nitpicking. Seriously, Tsukasa is of such higher quality than Miyuki from this set!!

We can't forget the ultra-cute shoe design that many Kantai Collection characters have! Partially armored high heels with a cute ribbon (the same color as her hair ribbon). Nice!

You have to get into very specific angles to see the panties of this figure, as her posing (with her tugging down her clothes) obstructs a lot of the view. You can see a little bit from a generic white panty. I don't know if this is cannon for Haguro, as Haguro herself is also tugging her clothes in her official damaged art!

http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/kancolle/images/d/d8/CA_Haguro_065_Full_Damaged.png/revision/latest?cb=20150519022501?.jpg


Summary or tl;dr

Positive
- Very detailed sculpting for a prize figure.
- Same can be said about the shading, especially the damages on her ship parts.
- Cute and very in-character posing!

Neutral
- Small painting errors here and there (to be expected from a prize figure).
- Some bigger seamlines, especially on the right side of her legs (to be expected from a prize figure).

Negative
- Gloves are a bit bulky.
- Needs a lot more blush on her face! Come on, figure manufacturers! Don't be scared to blush it up!

The Scores

Sculpting 9/10
I'm very very impressed with the sculpting on this figure! The only 'big' flaws are the seamlines on her legs and a few at the back of her ship parts.

Painting 8/10
Nice shading of the damage on the ship parts. A few splotches and inaccuracies here and there. Needs some more blush on her face!

Posing 9/10
Very in-character for both Tsukasa and Haguro! The construction of the base with the pole holding her up is very sturdy and gives it a solid look.

Base 7/10
The base itself is a big and bulky disc that is not very interesting to look at, I give pluspoints for the pole that keeps her up.

Packaging 8/10
Cute packaging design with nice bright colors. Figure is very sturdy in the blisters.

Enjoyment 10/10
Well, this Tsukasa I give a full enjoyment rating! Why? Next to her being a perfect combination of cute posing, cute characters, nice paintwork and nice sculpting, this is also in general: A very amazingly detailed prize figure.

Conclusion

Even without being a fan of either franchises, this figure really stands above the quality of a lot of other prize figures. I can imagine people not being into either franchises showing an interest in this one. I definitely find this a must-buy if you're a fan of Tsukasa!

Availability

In general this set seems to be a bit more rare nowadays. When this figure was just released you could find her multiple times for around 1500 yen on Mandarake, with her quickly selling out. If you live in the US or Europe, you probably get the cheapest and easiest deal by getting this one on eBay from a Japanese seller. I see multiple available available right now, 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!

Stalking (10 months ago) #17912807Ahh, I'm so mad I don't have her yet >_< I'm holding out on most figure purchases until I get to move countries, to avoid moving so many figures around.. But mannn, this Tsukasa is so tempting!
Thanks for the nice review!!
I wonder what's up with the "uninteresting" scores. People mad at lucky star still getting figures, maybe? : - )


I'm not really expecting these figures to get super rare or expensive, so I don't think you need to rush. ;)

No problem! This Tsukasa is such a cutie! At first I thought that she would be the simplest one from the set, but I ended up being more impressed with her than Miyuki!

Haha, well. There has been a small shitstorm at multiple of these figures' pages about people being mad at the 'pure and innocent' Lucky Star getting figures combined with the 'filthy' Kantai Collection. So I think it's just mad people from there. ;)

Orrrrrrr people are really disliking my new review style, in which case (if these people are reading this), I would like to get feedback on it. :P

Shimakaze69 (10 months ago) #17911295I have Konata and Kagami and they're awesome. Eventually I'll pick up Tsukasa, but a lack of space has put her at low priority at the moment. She's adorable though!

I definitely recommend Tsukasa! To be honest, at first I thought she wasn't really special compared to the others with bigger ship parts or better expressions, but her quality is really high and she completes the set so nicely~

victorviper (10 months ago) #17903344Not knowing too much about Haguro or really KanColle in general, I didn't realize that Tsukasa's pose was based on an official illustration of Haguro. In any event, the way she's tugging at the skirt is most Tsukasa-like!
Thanks for the shout-out, too :).


Yeah~ They really picked a perfect character from Kan Colle for Tsukasa to cosplay as!

No problem! :D I think you didn't see I also did that at the last review? ;) Np, will also do it at the next, so people will know all figures from that set have been reviewed!)
