Lucky☆Star - Hiiragi Kagami - Summer School Uniform (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. ;) !

The pantyshot in this review has been put in spoiler, so this is a sfw review!

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Hiiragi Kagami ENCYCLOPEDIA #1624 from Lucky Star ENCYCLOPEDIA #17 ! This figure ITEM #5795 is a prize figure made by SEGA ENCYCLOPEDIA #7642 .

As this review sometimes references to the other figure from this set ITEM #28954 which I have earlier reviewed blog/33187 , it is recommendable to also read that review.

Background

Lucky Star is mainly known for it's cute and funny anime, but started of as a 4koma manga. The series follows the daily life of a group of cute of high school girls, all with very different personalities.

Hiiragi Kagami is one of the fan favorites from this series, which is why there are also a lot of figures from her. You could summarize her as a tsundere. She seems cold and sometimes snaps at her friends, but actually she loves them very much. She has a twin sister called Tsukasa ENCYCLOPEDIA #1625 with a very opposite personality.

The reason why and how I got her

I bought her together with the matching Konata as an impulse buy at a convention many years ago. I was a very big fan of Lucky Star, but didn't own any figures of this series yet!

Original art

Just like with Konata, there is no artwork this figure was directly modelled after. Her hairdo however, shows up a few times in the manga and anime, as she puts her hair in buns when they go swimming.

And because it's really hard to find official artwork of her in her school uniform, I'll just share my favorite Kagami-moment here: View spoilerHide spoiler

But without any jokes, Kagami wears the exact same uniform as Konata, which you can see here:

She has the exact same box as the matching Konata from the set: Simple, but colorful! Also note the Kadokawa sticker of authenticity on the back.

Kagami has a very innocent (and maybe even bewildered) look here. I guess they were going for a more neutral look (to show her 'cold' side), but she ended up looking rather surprised. It's a bit out of character actually.

Her hair looks quite detailed and her hands have interesting posing.

Looking at all the details!

Kagami's eyes are very nicely detailed decals close to the style of the anime rather than the manga. Her mouth is sculpted too and has a bit of red paint. If I nitpick, I would say that her eyebrows are maybe a bit too high (even more affirming the 'surprised look').

Her bangs have a nice, wavy sculpt, with the wefts moving in all kinds of directions, while still looking as natural as far as anime hairstyles like this transitioned from 2D to 3D can go.

Her buns have good detailing, where you can even see her hair layered in the bun. Also you can see her hair at the back of her head being pulled into the buns.

There are two white ribbons tied around the buns that show quite a big casting line on the sides. The ribbons themselves look pretty good.

Both the sculpting and painting on her uniform is very nice. There are some small letdowns, such as the lines at the bottom of her skirt having a few mishaps and there being a small casting leftover at her chest ribbon. But for an older prize figure: I'm impressed! I especially like the movement in her shirt and skirt. Also the white lines on her collar and arms is very clean.

Sorry for blurry picture, I didn't have any others from her right hand.

The hands looking weird and out of proportion was a problem with the Konata from this set. Luckily it's not that bad on Kagami. Her hands may be a bit too big compared to the rest of her body, but the fingers are looking good. The only reason why I was staring at her hands for so long, was because I had so much remarks on Konata's hands. Kagami's hand are luckily not anything to worry about!

Because of the posing it's a bit harder to get a panty shot from Kagami than Konata. Kagami also wears plain white panties in this figure (I thought it was canon for her to have striped panties, but correct me if I'm wrong). There is a little bit of detailing on the panty to be seen.

Also here, I like it a lot that she is wearing an underskirt, the underskirt has a nice flowing movement.

Kagami poses her legs very cutely. It seems a bit like she is walking, which explains the movement of her skirt. You can also see a bit of the underskirt here, which is a nice detail!

Her high socks have bled a bit of paint on her legs, this will vary on each copy. A nice detail is that you can see that the socks sink a bit into her skin.

But bad news for me (as this frustrated me a lot with the Konata from this set): She has super tiny feet. Especially the posing of the right foot becomes a bit awkward from some angles because of this.

Her brown shoes have a few details, but are painted very basic.

Kagami is screwed securely onto the base. The bottom of the base shows some copyright markings.

Luckily the base is very cute and doesn't take up much space. Because of the shape, you have a lot of cute display options with matching figures from this set!

The Points

Positive
- Looks very good for an older prize figure, both in sculpt and painting.

Neutral
- Some mishaps here and there both in sculpt and paint.

Negative
- Tiny feet that can be quite distracting from the overall figure.

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
A bit basic, but very good for the age and prize of this figure. There aren't any big mishaps.

Painting 8/10
I'm impressed how cleanly some parts are painted, such as the lines on her collar. There is minimal bleeding here and there.

Posing 6/10
It's actually quite out of character and a bit simple. I wish I could have rated it higher, but the 'startled young girl' look is not really my first thought when I think of Kagami. Some small changes in her expression could have made her look more tsun (which is what I think they were going for).

Base 8/10
With Kagami having the same base as Konata I can say again: I love the base. It doesn't take up too much space, it references to the show she is from and they can interlock with others from the set!

Packaging 7/10
Same box as the matching Konata. Cute and colorful, but not very special.

Enjoyment 7/10
I had a lot of fun displaying both Konata and Kagami for many years in my collection, but I have been thinking about selling them now that I own newer prize figures from these characters.

Conclusion

It's a cute and clean figure, and she is very nice to display with the matching Konata. There are a few 'buts' though... First off, this figure is quite a bit out of character, which probably makes her less interesting to own as a loose figure if you don't own any others from the set. Secondly, unlike Konata, there are higher quality alternatives for a summer school uniform Kagami! Atelier Sai's Kagami ITEM #5795 did manage to get produced and from the pictures I have seen, she seems like a lot higher quality, while going for only a little bit higher of a price for a second hand copy. Don't get me wrong, this SEGA Kagami is still very cute and good looking figure, but there are just better alternatives. I would only recommend getting this Kagami if you are planning to display them as a (partial) group.

Availability

I haven't seen her for sale in Japan for a while, but I'm pretty sure that if you keep an eye out on the regular websites for second hand prize figures, you can pick her up for close to release price! I also see a few in stock on eBay right now for around $25-30 including shipping, so she seems to be slightly cheaper than Konata.

And to finish it!

Currently I have my figures in storage, but here is how I used to display her in my collection!

Standing next to the matching Konata. I love how there is a big height difference between the two.

sailormatlac (3 months ago) #23445473I couldn't resist back then, they were so cute! I'm not sure if I will complete the set, this one ITEM #23611 is unfortunately larger than Konata and Kagami.

I just checked some user pictures and...urgh. I dislike it so much when figure lines and/or companies just decide to change their scale with an ongoing line. :/

Rajke (3 months ago) #23542199Love the reviews about older figures. :D Kagami looks good for her age (the age of the figure). What surprise me the most about this figure is that she has 3 screws that attach her to the base. I see what you mean by her pose and the facial espression. When i saw the last picture the "You have something on your face." quote is the first thing coming to mind.

I'm glad you enjoyed them! I have quite a lot of new reviews planned, both of newer and older figures. :)

Hrmm, I actually quite like the figures being attached to the base, it's very sturdy. But it's rare to see prize figures that are attached like that. At least I can't remember seeing it with more recently released prize figures.

Haha oh wow, another interpretation of her expression! One thing is clear: It's not like our well-known Kagami! :P

solluxcaptor (3 months ago) #23417303So cute! Older figures like these are so charming and nostalgic, younger me would have wanted this figure so desperately but it would have been out of my means to buy at the time. Makes me want to buy them for nostalgic purposes.

Hehe, if you end up going for this one, I would definitely recommend picking up also others from this set. Their interlocking bases are very cute!

Sazako (3 months ago) #23415243Hey Cheers,
Actually i think they may have been going for something similar to her Pony Tail face.
Here would be my pick for Tsundere/Embarrassed, expression. I guess similar to
https://media1.giphy.com/media/QzinikTzCHc9W/200_s.gif
If totally owning the hair style this have gone with the face of, which was used later in the Maid Figure.
ITEM #198658
Yes 1000% about Lucky Star, Reminds me that i should re-watch it and totally get a Kagami Nendoriod. I love your choice of figure, not having them figures they did a great job doing the cross over.


Oh gosh, I would love a figure of Kagami fiddling with her hair~ I don't think there is one?

You are right! Minus her blush the expression is quite similar!

Aah, she is so cute in that scène:

http://pa1.narvii.com/6062/4953eca72770fad0fc23417329606c140e661415_hq.gif

I am actually planning on re-watching the series the next time I have a few days off! It's been quite some years since I watched it the last time... And yes me too, I love their crossover figures, especially because they are working together with Mecha Musume series. <3

What do you think they wanted to do with her expression? Also try to make her look 'cold'? I must say that if you look at her from a distance she looks less 'surprised' and more 'neutral'.
Lucky Star is something precious that shouldn't be forgotten! <3 I will especially treasure my Lucky Star x Kan Colle and x Strike Witches figures forever!

Sazako (3 months ago) #23408733Hey Excellent Review as always Maakie, Thumbs Up!
I love how you highlight how she is posed out of Character for our Kagami.
And good on noticing detail about proportion of her shoes and sculpting of her hands.
Good to see a Lucky Star Review in this day and age.
