Review: Shiro 1/8 by GSCReview: Shiro 1/8 by GSCReview

NyxLunaNyxLuna1 year ago
Hi friends, welcome to my first review!

So I wanted to get some practice writing a review and thought this figure presented a great opportunity. I was so excited to unbox her that I forgot to take pictures of the box/packaging with her in it, but I'll be sure to include them next time :P

Shiro 1/8 scale by Good Smile Company



Packaging:

The box has a nice blend between the light pink and dark purple the suits the figure well and also creates contrast that makes Shiro's colorful hair even more eye catching. The windows provides a clear view so all the pictures on the box feel almost unnecessary :P The blister package was secure and easy enough to open.

*Sorry for the glare from the flash :p*

Base:

I really appreciate the subtle nod with the black and white pawns representing Sora and Shiro respectively. The semi-transparent chessboard combined with the scattering playing cards works wonderfully to support the figure's dynamic pose. Additionally the whole base is slanted forward to make the details pop even more through the power of geometry! The best part is how easy it was to connect the figure to the metal rod, because I've never had a good experience with those metal rods before >.<

Figure:


It is as if Shiro is falling straight off the page and onto my shelf. GSC really got the face spot on, her playful expression is adorable and her eyes have been captured perfectly. Overall beautiful sculpting, especially on her signature cascading hair, the colors are incredibly vibrant without being overwhelming, and all the painting is quite well done.

Conclusion:

I am ecstatic to have GSC's 1/8 Shiro in my collection. It is somewhat uncommon for me to buy a figure without ignorable flaws, but GSC absolutely nailed this figure! I will say she is painted in a fashion best admired at a distance, as if she was a painting in a museum, which some may find off-putting, but I find it to be a nice variation from the other figures in my collection and a unique stylistic choice.This Shiro perfectly fills the space between her sister figures, and creates really nice depth on the shelf. No details were overlooked from the vibrant colors, excellent sculpting, especially her flowing hair, and pose/expression. GSC seems to almost always deliver quality products like this that will keep me coming back for more :)

Thank you for reading! If you'd like to see more of my collection, I just started uploaading to Instaram: www.instagram.c.... I also wanted to thank AIMATHYST , I used her review BLOG #43170 as inspiration for mine. I hope you all enjoyed, feel free to share your thoughts below. See you soon, have a great day!

Tsumuro1 year ago#63737010Make sure to put the peg into her foot all the way to the end. I've seen a lot of people who didn't do this and her foot ended up breaking. You got it in quite far already but it can still go a little bit further.
Thanks so much, I'm glad you noticed that! Shiro is now safe and secure :)
