    Jaou (6 days ago) #63582889I really liked your article about this! I do not own a FREEing bunny figure (yet) BUT(T) of course we have seen them around, well bunny figures in general.
    I agree that some poses are a bit odd like from Shiro of NGNL or just lack personality/movement. BUT I do think in certain cases a rather simple pose fits the character perfectly for example ITEM #740258 I can imagine her in this pose calling Hiro "Darling" <3
    I own ITEM #305368 and I love her pose so so much! I think the bunny outfit is a more unique one AND it is based on an offical illustration and this outfit along the pose can be seen in the movie "Take on me". Despite Rikka being a character that isn't super sexy I do think it captures her personality well :)


    Thank you! Man, Zero Two’s figure is so well-received, and I love her Too; she looks so lively and bubbly, yet mischevious. To pack al of that in one facial expression entails skill!

    Imasock (6 days ago) #63582993My opinions on this are strong, hopefully people don't get too upset, but...
    These are the worst figures.
    They are all the exact same thing:
    - Black tights
    - Single main outfit color, nothing exciting here
    - Boring/predictable, not unique in any way
    - Nothing fun to express about the character wearing them
    - Every. Single. One. Looks. The. Same.
    I'll never understand why these sell and companies continue to make them.


    The part on how they aren’t indicative of a character’s personality is actually pretty true imo too. I like the single-color outfit, since it simplifies things and can really help colors contrast. They are predictable but I personally like them even so, but I 100% see where you’re coming from.

    Talal (6 days ago) #63582894Bunny figures looks so stupid to me . It has lack of personality and the figures turns to go out of original character . So I always pass freeing figures and especially when thy come with 1/4 scale .

    NGL, yeah I agree that they lack personality a lot. The bunny featured in the article with the pink hair, Nono, is so boring and underwhelming for example.

    Tiamat26 (6 days ago) #63581446The pose is everything and the action that you are implying would be great but just imagine how much more flair this would give the figurine and just how much more room it could consume on a shelf. The Revi figurine is just awesome to look at. The pose is great and yes the stretched out leg makes you think that she just came out of a tumble roll got her footing and is ready to fire those 45 barrels at someone. I do not own her but I can only think about the box size for that figurine. That stretched out leg needs to be protected and man that box must have been huge.
    Can you imagine if as you said some of the figurine would have flow in their hair. The odds of getting a figurine wit broken pieces has now quadrupled. Especially if we are talking separate strands. It's not like I want to disagree with you at all. I also would like a sundae with a cherry on top.
    I found a great example of the back braking Bunny. She is notoriously know on MFC for this.

    As for characters that I would like to see there are a few bunnies I would love to add to the collection. But they will never come to be as the anime came and went and not many figurines came from it.
    Gate ( don't hate here ) I actually loved the anime and some of the Warrior bunnies I really loved and no it was not Tyuule. The one that attacked the young girl on the base is one that a dynamic pose could easily be made. And then I love the bunny maid taking care of Itami Youji; Mamina But with one ear half folded and that expression on someone is coming when itami's forces arrive.

    Now back to the cherry; I personally would love to see better poses as well for the bunny girls and I mentioned this in another one of my blogs when this Elza bunny was announced ( nooo !!!!! not 1/4 scale ) . I loved the pose so much that I broke down and ordered her even though she was not 1/4 scale. The look the pose the accessories. Everything fit with this character.

    One last comment have you seen the shipping prices EMS for bunnies now... average is hitting 7800 Yen. Use to be 5900 Outch if the boxes get bigger.

    Thank you for commenting! Ahh, that broken spine bunny always makes me crack up, but she’s actually a perfect representation of action that I like to see. Hair doesn’t even really need to be flowing like her’s for me. It could actually just be sculpted swaying to the side if, say, the character is leaning in a direction to the side.
    I haven’t gotten a bunny yet but I figured they’d be around 6,000 for shipping. Not 7,800! Not a happy thought hahah! But happy collecting! :)

    Rajke (6 days ago) #63578758Great article. Personally i think most of the Bunny's Freeing makes are looking great. Grouping them in natural poses or forced photo shoot poses. I agree some of the poses are looking boring or plain and i think the appeal of the Bunny line is in their high scale, high quality and a pose in combination with a facial expression that stays close with the character. The highschool DXD bunny's and To Love Ru Bunny's are very good in that way. But i get what you mean by more motion. Sometimes the pose is to much forced or stiff as with Matoi. Her facial expression goes so well with her uneasy pose that it looks correct. I think it is mostly a matter of taste.
    There are a few Bunny figures where i think that they look of. I have seen this one ITEM #117203 (the other two characters from the same origin are a lot better in their pose, I guess Hanato only comes to her right with the other two figures besides her) in real life and it was really disappointing. I have to admit that i don't know the character but the pose is so unnatural that it hits the realm of ridiculously (In 1/1 scale this figure would be cool with a carton sign by her feet with the text: 'The entrance of the parking lot is on your right’).

    I agree, I love FREEing bunnies, and how they can be separated into those two groups you mentioned of ‘natural’ and ‘posing,” offers different vibes you could say.
    That bunny does look like she’d hold such a sign hahah!

    Wonder (7 days ago) #63566763I do kinda agree that sometimes bunny figures can be plain and boring, especially if it doesn't captures the character well.
    I do like to see more B-figures with a bit more detail and poses. As much as I like Konosuba, these two bunny figures for Aqua and Megumin (ITEM #549389)~(ITEM #549384), for me are a bit out of character and sorta plain. I'd love to see more b-figures that have a bit more detail like Reika here (ITEM #604534)
    In my eyes, atleast, I can see a ton of more detail!
    Most bunny figures I seen kinda captures the character well, but not as much as Zero Two here (ITEM #740258), she looks happy and quite mischievous, like her character.
    Too say in a whole, I feel like B-figures are made to be a kinda cheap concept. Our favorite characters in a somewhat lewd bunny costumes that is in 1/4, highering the price! But even with the higher price, sometimes the character doesn't have enough detail or doesn't capture the character well. Though people still buy it, because duh, it's bunny figures.
    Just a btw, here are my favorite b-figs that check all my checkpoints..~
    (ITEM #167005)
    (ITEM #198551)
    (ITEM #740245)


    B-figs with detail are so essential, because that’s something every figure should have. Zero Two’s figure is an ideal representation: I like the shading in her hair (evident in exposition photos,) her stunningly detailed eyes, and back to her hair, it’s scultped so nicely. Can’t wait for her. Thanks for commenting!
