Queen's Blade - Airi - 1/12 figure - Desk Top Figures (Aoshima)

MaakieMaakie18 days agoReview
This blog post is not suitable for people under 18.
I'm over 18
! 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. ;) !

This is a review of an NSFW figure that will also be cast-off! Which is why the review is also tagged as NSFW.

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Airi ENTRY #1911 from Queen's Blade ENTRY #18 ! This figure ITEM #25108 is made by Aoshima ENTRY #7667 and part of their Desk Top Figures line.

I will start off with telling some more about her background.

Background

Queen's Blade is a series of visual combat books used to play a game. They are well known for having a wide range of artists providing character designs and artwork. I have never played Queen's Blade myself, but I have talked to people that have played it and have seen a lot of scans and pictures from the books. Simply put, Player 1 does an attack (shown on a page of the book) on Player 2 and Player 2 then goes to the corresponding page in his/her book about the effect of the attack.

Because of the popularity of the visual combat books and the first figures becoming available, Queen's Blade also got an light novel series, manga series and was made into an anime. If you like ecchi anime with a lot of fighting scenes and very good character designs, I definitely recommend watching Queen's Blade! Don't underestimate it though, the ecchi goes a lot further than most other ecchi series.

The reason why and how I got her

Because of my love of characters wielding huge weapons, I was attracted to this character design many years ago. My first Airi figure entered my collection about 8 years ago when I bought ITEM #152 . I also own and really like ITEM #14122 , which I reviewed multiple years ago here: blog/9453 . This figure I picked up second hand with a little box damage from a local anime forum.

Original art

There is no direct artwork this figure was modelled after, but below artwork from her combat book comes pretty close!

Her colors are spot-on with this figure and parts of her original outfit were used for the outfit this figure wears.

The box has a very bright purple/pink color palette, which makes the box stand out a lot and I'm not sure if that's in a positive or negative way. The pictures on the side of the box also seem to be oversaturated or weirdly filtered in the designing process. The box itself is very compact for the figure it houses. Unfortunately there is no artwork on the box.

When you open up the box, the figure itself looks quite...simple? It seems like there are only 3 pieces: the main figure itself and her scythe in two pieces.

You may also already notice here the lack of a base. This figure was advertised in the Desk Top Figures line, which is meant to be (as the name suggests) placed on desks or tables. They probably wanted to keep her as compact as possible and left out a base for that.

One last thing to point out here is her size. She is advertised as a 1/12, but at 15CM in a kneeling position like this, she is a lot bigger than that! I would say she is around 1/10, but she fits in quite well with 1/8's too.

The Figure

This is the furthest apart you can take the figure. The top and lower body are two different pieces and her skirt and bra come loose.

The scythe comes in two pieces, which I think was only done so that the box of this figure could stay so compact. For the assembly of the figure this adds no value.

Display options

For this review I'll review her with all of the clothes on, so I'll start with showing off the other display option.

She looks quite cute without top and it doesn't seem out of place for her chest to be bare. Her boob shape looks especially cute from the side. Casting her top off is also a lot easier than with other cast-off figures. No weird tags to push the bra in/out off. You can remove her head and simply lift off her bra, then put the head back on.

For the people wondering: "Can she also be displayed without her skirt?"

Well, only if you find this attractive. It's very unfortunate that they didn't come up with a solution to display her like this, as more display options possible would definitely be a plus! Also with the skirt being removeable, you would expect the figure to also be displayable like that. I guess that during the designing process it turned out to be too much work/too expensive to add this as a display option. By the way, this picture shows the furthest you can cast her off. Her choker, head band and arm bracelets can not be removed.

Looking at all the details!

Let's start off by looking at her face. One of the things that really stands out with this figure, even from a distance, is how heavily blushed the face is. It's almost completely red here! Airi is known for having a blush on her cheeks most of the times, but her face is beet red! That being said, you have come to the most negative point of this figure already in the first part of this review.

The expression on her face is so-so. The mouth is a bit too small and the nose looks strange from some angles, it makes the face look a bit disproportional. That aside, the bangs in her face look very nice for a figure this age (7 years old).

Her hair is seperated into multiple wefts which also look quite clean here. The painting on the headband is average, but the sculpt on the headband and ribbon is done quite well.

Her really long hair gently floats down and has some nice movement to it.

Except for one small PVC leftover in one of the hairtips of my copy of this figure, the sculpting is very clean here.

Let's get to her chest area! The design of the bra makes the breasts actually seem bigger than they look without one! The bra itself has a nice shine on it and some small wrinkle details in the sculpt.

Her chest and ribcage have a lot of shading, which really makes it look good.

Her choker, in fitting french maid style, has a good sculpt and average paint. Her armpits are nicely sculpted as well.

Her other arm has shading in the right places, which is really impressive for a figure this age. Her hand is nicely sculpted, but doesn't have fingernails. Considering her size and age it was not expected that she would have them. Still, it would have been a nice touch if she did.

From this angle you can also see a bit of a gap between the upper and lower body. Something almost inevitable with cast-off figures. It still makes me wonder why they even made the upper and lower body seperate pieces, as a removeable head was the only thing needed for her bra to come off.

Her back also has a nice sculpt, with a good amount of shading. As with a lot of anime characters, she wears very low rise panties, which shows a bit of her butt. There are some painting errors at the top of the panty and near her left butt cheek specifically on my copy of this figure.

The big ribbon she wears on her back has some nice sculpting and shows a lot of movement with this figure.

Speaking about movement, the apron at the front shows a lot of it! If it wasn't for the slightly crude painting of the black line, it would have been even more stunning!

The paint and detailing on Airi scythe is very simple. There is a decal on it, to give the effect of a shimmer. When you hold the scythe into a light source, it sparkles a bit (this is more visible in the video, near the end).

Airi has a very nice pair of thighs with knee high socks. Again, there is the right amount of shading here. The socks are pretty simple though.

It can be a bit hard to distinguish her black shoes with the black stockings from a distance. With this figure they used a slightly glossier black paint to differentiate them. The small strap and buckle on the shoes are nicely painted.

Although this review is already NSFW, I know people were waiting for these shots!

If you want a detailed look at her panties from the front, posing her like this is the way to go. The figure can lay down very stable like this, but it makes the pose very awkward, so I wouldn't display her like that.

While putting Airi like this, I noticed a small white paint transfer on her black stocking. I managed to get it removed by using eraser after photographing for this review.

Airi's panties have a small white ribbon and you can see quite some of the detail from down there. Again, there is a high amount of shading on her body, which you can see on her stomach here.

Normally I would close off my pictures of the review with an talk about her base, but considering this figure doesn't have one...let's look at something else!

Do not try this at home or if you really have to, don't do this for long periods of time!

But I just wanted to point out her scythe can be hold between her breasts quite well! I do think the middle string of the bra would snap if the scythe shifts a bit, so I don't dare to display her like this.

The Points

Positive
- Both clothed and unclothed, she looks very good!
- Very compact box.
- Nice sculpting details.
- Lots of shading on the body.

Neutral
- Figure is a lot bigger than advertised.
- Figure doesn't come with a base.

Negative
- Some paint letdowns.
- Her face has a bit of a weird expression and is also very heavy on the blush.

The Scores

Considering the figure doesn't have a base, I left that out of the judging.

Sculpting 8/10
There are a lot of details and not many sculpting errors to be seen.

Painting 7/10
This was a really hard one to score, because there is such a huge amount of shading on her body that I would love to score it even higher, but there are also quite a lot of small letdowns and one bigger letdown, her face being very red.

Posing 7/10
Although it fits Airi, for the posing I also need to take into account her facial expression, which is a bit bland. The rest of the posing is quite simple.

Packaging 7/10
The packaging is very compact, which is a good plus, but the colors on it are a bit harsh.

Enjoyment 7/10
I'm a big fan of Airi, which is why I couldn't pass up this figure when I saw her for sale locally. Still, she is probably the least favorite Airi from the 3 I own.

Conclusion

A nice figure for Airi fans and/or fans of ecchi figures in general, but she lacks a certain charm other Airi figures have. The shading on the body is very on-point though, which makes this a nice and detailed figure to display. If you can get her for a nice price and she fits with the rest of your collection, I would still recommend her.

Availability

This figure does not pop up for sale second hand much, but if she does, you can find her for around her release price.

And to finish it!

For those who read all this way, thank you! My next review will be about Kotobukiya's Yamada Michiru ITEM #1595

Criscokid (17 days ago) #28978822Yes! I would like to acquire the U-Art figures, the A+ figures and the Dollfie. I hope the new Queen's Blade Unlimited also comes out with new Airi figures.

Ah, yes her Dollfie is also very nice! But very hard to find nowadays.

And there have already been announcements for QBU figures! See the official Twitter: twitter.com/QBu... . I'm not sure what to think about Airi's new design yet, I'll wait for the figures to be finished before I judge. :)

Rajke (15 days ago) #29056597Nice review. Her face is indeed to plain for the pose she holds. Besides that, the way of attaching and dismantle the bra is one thing Aoshima company did very well.
She looks very good for an older figure. Even if there are some paint errors the figure endured those 7 years well.
It is a missed change for Aoshima to not include a base. That means that the copyright marks are on the figure itself or the item attached.


Thanks! And I agree, a very nice figure for her age. The lack of base was needed to keep her price low, box small and for her to fit in the Desk Top figures line. But I agree that it would have been nice if she came with one, even if it was only for paint transfer prevention.

Criscokid (17 days ago) #28974848Good review. I find this Airi figure to be decent for it's age and price. As an owner of 22 Airi figure variations, my favorite Airi's are ITEM #13269 and the ITEM #23109 variant.

Thank you very much! :D And wow, that are a lot of Airi's! Are you planning on getting more? :)

KalasRaven (18 days ago) #28924209Since this Airi pops up so cheap, I've always been tempted to buy this. Thank you for this review, I never really saw how red her face is. :/ I think I'll much rather prefer buying ITEM #35422 or ITEM #13269 before buying this. (I probably will be getting those someday, never too much Airi! :D)

No problem! And yeah, from the other people that I know that own(ed) her or saw her in person, they had the same reaction. Even though the figure is very nice, a bad face can be very offputting and take the whole thing down.

From the Airi's you mentioned, I saw both in person, ITEM #13269 is definitely the better one from the two. ITEM #35422 looks pretty yegh in person, the details on the dress are not so nice and the skin tone is a bit weird, in my opinion the figure in this review is nicer than ITEM #35422 .

victorviper (18 days ago) #28918331It's funny you mention that. I bought Airi new, and I wasn't planning on displaying her cast off, so it was a rude surprise to learn that she *had* to be cast off at least once to remove all kinds of plastic sheeting from the figure!
I remember thinking "surely this dress splits somewhere, right?" Wrong. During the process I was sure I was going to break Airi before getting that dress off and back on, but somehow I managed to do so with figure intact. It must have taken me an hour to do it though!


I bought mine second hand and the clothing had already fallen off in most parts when I got her out of the packaging. >.< Re-assembling her took quite a bit of work as I also wasn't planning on displaying her (partially) nude, so I had to be super careful with the clothes. Her back ribbon likes to keep falling off from time to time. If it wasn't for her absolutely dreamy face I would get angry at that figure more, haha!

Wait, now I remember how horrible it is to cast-off ITEM #152 , so only on that point this figure is better, haha!

victorviper (18 days ago) #28917596I'd thought about getting this figure many moons ago, but ultimately passed since I already had ITEM #152, and I thought her 1/12 scale together with the kneeling pose would make her absolutely tiny! If she's really more like 1/9 or 1/10, that would explain why Airi's MFC page says she's 150 mm in height, pretty much the same as ITEM #96896.
It looks like they did a pretty good job with certain elements of Airi's body, but then her face looks so blah!


ITEM #152 is definitely superior in every way compared to this one! And her size on the MFC page is correct, I have no clue why the manufacturer had her announced as 1/12 (maybe they thought they couldn't get away with not providing a base for the figure if she was listed as a bigger scale?).

Wait, now I remember how horrible it is to cast-off ITEM #152 , so only on that point this figure is better, haha!

If it wasn't for the face, I would definitely recommend this figure to a lot of people. She's cheaper than a lot of other Airi's, and the shading on her body is so good. But then we have the beet red face, argh!!!
