Kuroyukihime by Kotobukiya

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/upload/pictures/2013/05/01/695046.jpeg

I found her for almost half the price off, and since I somewhat liked Kuroyukihime from Accel World so I bought this one and I don't regret it. She's one of the prettiest figures in my collection now! I was hoping for a school uniform version of her, but this virtual outfit is probably better in the end anyway.

Lot's of plastics sheets, which is good of course. Wings come detached and Haruyuki's pig avatar is also separate. You will have to pull off Kuroyukihime's right arm in order to put Piggy there and that was no easy task. It was so firmly in place it felt like I was going to break the figure. The same goes for the wings. Almost didn't fit, and I couldn't put one wing the whole way in but it's firmly in place, at least.
Something I didn't take more than one picture of was her without the wings attached. Just like Good Smile Company's Kuroyukihime you could display her without the wings as well.

She's big, beautiful, and heavy. Well, big as in great volume because of her wings.
At first when unpacking her I didn't find the face quite accurate, but that feeling seems to be gone now. Overall the sculpting is satisfactory. Displaying her without Haruyuki's pig avatar makes her look a bit strange though as her body gives way for the contact between them. Same goes for Haruyuki's avatar if you want to display it solo.
Painting is overall quite good though the black stripes on the wings could have been better. My sample sadly has a (big) black paint spot on the back of her leg. Luckily you can't see it from many angles. (I removed it in my photos.)
The base is both cool and strange. The cool is the dress looks submerged in the water with ripples but the strange is the light blue outside. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I was hoping it would be possible to remove the base and let her stand on her dress only, but that idea is cut short because the "water" seems to be cast around the dress.

Extra photos

Here are some more closeup photos. Spring has just started where I live so there isn't much greenery outside but when there is I'll be taking her outside since it's a well suited background for photos of her.

She's my first Koto's figure. I've heard mostly bad things about their quality in the past, but this was the first decent Kuroyukihime figure in the market that time. No regret.

Wow, Kotobukiya did a nice paintjob here. Lovely Kuroyukihime.

Asako7 years ago#1493246I'm content with mine; but I put Azunyan nendo's cat in her arms instead of porky. It suits her well, though a different colour would have been nicer (see picture/667376&... for reference).
That's a good idea! Looks cute. ^^

kagaminelen7 years ago#1493235she looks okay. I like the Death by Embrace bust one and the new one.
The Embrace one might be too naughty to display though. ^^; But they are all nice. Just depends on which one you prefer.
