Misato Katsuragi 1/8 Union Creative ReviewMisato Katsuragi 1/8 Union Creative Review

Here is a brief review of the new Misato figure from Union Creative!

Misato comes in a pretty basic box, nothing special. The box is pretty thick which seems to be typical with UC figures, however she is very very light.

The finish on her is nearly perfect. I am very impressed by the overall quality. Her hair sculpt is especially nice. Even her little toe nails are painted nicely.
One flaw on Misato is that she does have a very ugly face profile. The profiles on most figures can be a hit or miss because the shape of anime faces, but i have seen very pretty profiles.

The faces of a figure is the biggest selling factor to me. Misatos face was cute on the promotional images, and I feel like its not quite the same on the finished product. The eyes dont seem to be in the same place or the nose seems longer? Her face is by no means ugly, I just prefer the promo pictures. I can still very clearly tell she is Misato, but the face is definitely disappointing. I like when figure have some gloss or color to give the illusion of lips, and I kinda wish this figure had some.

I have my display case with all my other figures at my fathers house so for now she is on my book shelf!

Overall, I actually like this figure after being a little skeptical. Union Creative has been impressing me, so they will be on my radar.
I still believe that Kotobukiyas Misato is the best Misato, but this was a successful attempt by UC.
Thanks for reading my review! I hope to review some more in the near future!

Yeah a face like that would of made UC's a must buy.
How do manufactures miss details like this? They must have a lot of money invested in production & materials. I'd be terrified of a product not selling.

Thanks for doing this review.
What is she like for size/scale next to Koto's 1/6?
I'd like to display them together if they size up nice with each other.

lunarlabyrinth (1 year ago) #46145675I was so torn when I had her in the box, but since I've taken her out I've fallen in love with her. The face really put me off at first, but everything else about this sculpt is so perfect that it's started to bother me less and less.
Not a huge fan of the Koto one either, I feel like there's always something about Misato that they don't seem to get right. It's a shame, she really deserves some good ones.

I dont feel like there are any AMAZING evangelion figures of their Sadamoto anime representations. So many figures, but no really great ones (lots of prize figures

inisipis (1 year ago) #46192612Yeah, I was planning of buying her last week in Akihabara but when I saw the her in the box, the face was a deal-breaker for me.
Honestly if i saw the figure in person first, i would have passed. Its unfortunate since everything else about the figure is amazing. Tbh, its kind of growing on me though, probably because i am stuck with it now. Lol
