-Introduction-

Hello, fellow collectors. Welcome back to another NSFW reivew. A rather short one. This time, I wanna try something new. For the sake of curiosity, I bought two 1/12 S-Style figures from FREEing.
Know that FREEing is the "bright side" of BINDing.


What make a better review of a waifu??
A review of 2 waifus.


Here're the bikini girls on the spot:

Ikaruga - Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash ITEM #676265
Himejima Akeno - High School DxD Born ITEM #549523

Her face doesn't look too bad.

Nail painting in 1/12.

Do you accept the product quality like this as a 1/12.

This body tho... Ikaruga doesn't have much figures since Vertex's Racing queen version.
That's why I bought this.

Akeno

Isn't too bad, love the haircut.


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/13/2279097.jpeg

This face is better than the HD remastered style. Her new look in the anime is a bit odd in my opinion.


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/13/2279096.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/13/2279095.jpeg

I've never seen a 1/12 body can be that seductive.


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/13/2279094.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/13/2279093.jpeg

Her top barely hangs on her left arm. Let's put it aside.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/13/2279101.jpeg

You can definitely can peek her nipples.
Unlike Ikaruga, she is much more generous.

Her ponytail is well made. And the blush is what we always ask for thg NSFW figures.
But not quite delivered, even in 1/6s. This 1/12 is an overkill in that aspect.
You might once again reconsider, maybe a 1/12 isn't too bad.

-Castoff fever-

Regardless of the scale, you can "cast her off" by "chopping" her arms off.

-Rating-

I'm not really into 1/12s as a 1/6 collector. So I try not to do benchmark kinda rating. You know, 1/6s and 1/12s are like night and day.

The question comes down to whether you would accept those compromises??
Are the S-Style figures "usable/likable"??

Let me know down the comment section below.



-Verdict-

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/13/2279083.jpeg

Who are these figures for?

At 3685 Yen each, it seems like these figures are for entry.
And they don't take much space like the big scales do, it allows collectors to have more characters at a lower cost. Would you buy 1/12 S-Style???

Some argue that these are just overpriced prize figures.
What do you reckon?? I leave the conclusion up to you.

I hope you enjoy your time with the S-Style.

Some of the good parts of this line is their lightweight and sturdiness. I have placed two on a very fragile part on the fish tank and they are looking great. I can’t do that with Figmas or other prize figures. Also their detailing is really good despite the small scale.

leith (3 months ago) #68736645Hi, thanks for the review! lots of pictures are always nice (^^)b
I've been curious about S-style ever since I first saw their rendition of Miku and Megurine. Mostly agree with others they are nice but could be cheaper due to their smaller size. Also I like to group figures based on their scale so the odd ones like S-style's 1/12 and Wave's 1/10 make it hard to display them.


Thanks. Although the quality might not satisfy most collectors, 1/12s can be displayed with Figmas. And there're miniatures in the same scale as well. If someone can make decent 1/12 figs, I would totally get them.

Eri-channn (3 months ago) #68643690I'v seen some reviews online of s-line from an collector named AnimePlease123,and whenever he get's a fake figure he will destroy it. I won't go into details but I have seen a lot of this brand of figures crushed and destroyed.

Thank you for dropping a comment.

Maybe I'm a much easier reviewer....lol

CaptainZ (3 months ago) #68641732These are so frustrating cause they are doing a lot of characters and designs I really like but 1/12 is just too small to make it "worth" for me.

Glad to see you again.

Quality comes first.

skylinedo (3 months ago) #68641538Its Freeing so generally SHOULD be on par with their other products but I've yet to buy from this S-line. Freeing 1/8 are pretty good consistent quality.

FREEing/BINDing are either too big or too small when it comes to scales.

1/12, 1.8,1/4...... I wish they make some 1/6s. 1/6 is the sweet spot for me.

Bohea (3 months ago) #68641537Considering that they're fairly cheap, I don't think they're too bad. There's certainly some rough bits, like on Ikaruga's bra and hair, but I think they look quite good overall. They do seem less polished than the prototype though. The small size isn't really a problem, they're about figma sized and thats fine as far as I'm concerned (mostly because I don't have a ton of space).
I've been thinking about buying the Type 95 S-Style and seeing these, I think I'll be happy getting it.


Thank you. I really hope this article give collectors an idea of the market positions of S-style and small scales.

I'm living in a studio unit so I do agree that S-style suits my need for living space.
