Super Pochaco RantSuper Pochaco RantDiary

I'm over 18
I love Super Pochaco I'm plus size myself so a lot of her figures make me a little more comfortable in my skin. Unfortunately, I've noticed that a few of her figures have unappealing color palettes and/or unflattering outfits ITEM #222557. Every character with a multiple figure line will have some well... sloppy sculpts picture/1335038....

People definitely like her despite not being as popular as Sonico. This year Sonico is getting a new prize figure ITEM #943304. I've pre-ordered this and I'm really excited about it! This led me to go check out if Pochaco would have one to match, instead, she is getting a re-release ITEM #213339 which feels like there testing to see if people are into her still. I would rather buy a $30 Prize Figure then a $160 Scale Figure (Just my collecting preference) if I had to choose between the two.

One of my biggest gripes it the Wedding Sonico ITEM #500291 Vs. Wedding Pochaco ITEM #397160. Again I do not expect to have a wedding figure as extravagant knowing Sonico is more profitable but this looks like she's the bride's mate and not the bride. I was looking for something similar to Sonico's white sexy lace. ITEM #744826 This figure didn't reach the wish list for me.

Here is some art I would love to be turned into scale or prize figures.
ITEM #1022137 ITEM #827944 ITEM #424165

Anything I missed or didn't point out? What's your opinion on the matter?

P.S. I feel Super Taruco could have MAYBE had a chance if she didn't look like a baby faced grandma. I feel they should have given her a long, high, ponytail (maybe some waves at the end).

Kaffeine2 days ago#81473784omg YES sadly shes a scale figure I mostly buy prize cus my budget.
Ah, I see. I prefer prepainted scales because of the detail. There are a lot of garage kits that I really wish had a prepainted version.

bisexual8 days ago#81208983tbh the saddest thing about pochaco is that she was just a phase. sonico has been around and bringing in the bucks for 10+ years now, with many figures currently in production, but pochaco just kinda... came and went. there havent been any more figures of her announced since 2017 and while its nice that the football figure is getting a re release my hopes of any more figures featuring her remain close to nonexistent.
also sad that taruco never got as much as a prize figure, i agree grey hair was unappealing but she has my favorite body type of the three :(


Ya, she came and went but after seeing Tsuji Santa's new Pochaco Dakimakura and shirt, the re-release, the vary attractive art being made lately, and in conjunction with the rise of body positivity, I feel are pushes to try to get her more popularity.
(on a side note Wedding Pocaco actually came out in 2019)

Hatchuu9 days ago#81157998I totally agree... I find so many of her outfits quite tacky and obviously just a weird kind of sexy I'm not really into (ie that cowgirl one...). I don't mind the noodle stoppers, and the maid ones, but their outfits are a bit too shrink-wrappy. I'd like to see one that emphasises her size with bigger, flowy-er, and fluffier elements perhaps. Maybe I'll settle for one of the cute swimsuit figures one day if I get the chance.

Yes ik what you mean I was actually going to use the cowboy one as an example because it just wasn't good. I would like to see more flowing cloths on her to. It would be nice if some of Tsuji Santa Illustrations were turned into figures Super Pochaco Diner.Ver

D_A_R9 days ago#81157274I love the thickness of Super Pochaco, but so far I havent found a figure I liked enough to buy it. My biggest problem with almost all of them is the neck. In my opinion it's way too thin, so it looks kinda odd with the rest of her proportions. I think the Cowboy one is by far the worst. I like the ones that hide the neck a bit better, but I'm not really into those themes.
So, yea - I agree with you. We need more good figures of her. :D


Ya, the cowboy was a dakimakura ITEM #646762 and laying down so it wasn't adapted well in a standing pose. Just her taking off her shorts is kinda awkward. A good figure should look just as nice with and without the cast off items. I would kill to have this Examplev1Examplev2 as a figure.

Malachi9 days ago#81157191Unflattering? ITEM #222557 is legit my favorite Pochaco figure. I thought the overall design for the figure was cute. A stark contrast from all of the sexualized variants.

Nothing wrong with liking the outfit but you need 7 out of 10 to like it for some profit. I don't feel the outfit was flattering for even Sonico ITEM #222556. The whole appeal is sex appeal and yes you can still be covered up and look good. Example Example but I feel if they wanted a winter figure they shouldn't have gone for the "Winter in July" look.

ProbablyANinja9 days ago#81157186You know, I agree entirely with you! Even though I'm not plus size myself, I absolutely love Pochaco and really wish that body type got more representation in the figure world.
As an artist myself, I agree that most of the figures of her don't seem to have very appealing outfits (both the colors used and the design themselves).
I agree too about the wedding figures. Even though I'm not typically a fan of wedding outfits on figures, I do wish that Pochaco hadn't gotten the short end of the stick.
For Pochaco figures, I only own ITEM #314687 and another color variant, and the only current figure I think I'll be buying in the near future is ITEM #183891 (I don't actually like the cowboy outfit, but everything else looks good).
Artwork I'd love to see turned into figures: ITEM #219709 (I could do without the food on her butt though. It distracts too much from that glorious posterior) and ITEM #319030


YES, and it is a figure! ITEM #325412 I wanted the figure cus well I like the booty pose but they seem to have this idea that if your chubby you LOVE food. Nothing is wrong with the food trope but I feel this toke aways from her sex appeal and wasn't used effectively. People don't realize the smallest design choose could make or break someone who chooses to purchase a figure.

AnimeCowgirl339 days ago#81157178I agree too that Super Pochaco needs some more love in the figure department. I do love her character design. Even though I do like Super Sonico as well, I feel Super Pochaco needs some more spotlight.
Ya, figure design has improved over the years so I feel if she got a nice casual outfit (with some cleavage) maybe she would have taken off instead of her tag line being "Sonico's Chubby best friend"
