Finally, got Figma Nene & without further ado I’ll review this. Nene was my 1st owned Figma & I’m quite satisfied to have her, her full name is Nene Anegasaki & she’s from a dating game “Love Plus” made by Konami. She’s a high school student also a part-time waitress in the game & she’s one of the girl that you can make to be your lover(player). Nene is known to be well mannered, calm, mature, dependable, & a big sister figure. Among all other Love Plus girls she’s the eldest one & even she’s an upperclass 1 year from the player(boy). So you might wonder why she looks taller than the rest of the 2 girls(Manaka Takane & Rinko Kobayakawa) in Love Plus, even their Figma were also befitted to how they are(Comparison). In her Figma she was packaged with a pinky box simillar to her Nendoroid version, however for me it’s kinda embarrassing when I bought it, since it’s convincing this is a girl’s toy, even to brought it home I felt so embarrassing. Actually Figma is suitable for boys & girls, but I’m a man who likes an action figure all about heroes, so it’s kinda reluctant for me to buy it. Okay, In here she comes up with quite lots of parts. We do we got?
An alternate hair(Long), 2 extra faceplates, school bag, choker, raccoon-ear head band, pair of tip-toe feet, stand set, & of course she had her interchangeable hand parts.
From the looks herself Nene appears to wearing a Japanese high school girl uniform, in white shirt with half of light blue & blue stripes for the color border, dark blue purple-ish collar with gray stripes, blue tie, a skirt with shared color like her shirt’s collar, white underwear inside her skirt, a pair of light blue long socks, & brown shoes. The figure is made from painted ABS(Acrylonitrile Butadine Styrene), PVC(Polyvinyl Chloride), POM(Particulate Organic Matter), & PP(Polypropylene). I say Figma’s articulations & substance are sturdy enough, using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes. A flexible plastic is used for specific areas, which allows proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
However, my glitch is her skirt which made her can’t lift her leg higher. But, you can still do an extreme dynamic pose on her… If you’re crazy enough dealing with her skirt…
The alternate hair is her long hair version & to be frankly it was the main reason why I want her, the hair was quite flexible even we can make her head turned right & left with no worries of being break, since the hair could follow the flexibility on detaining her shoulder. To change the hair sculpt you just simply pluck out her default hair sculpt, then insert the alternate one to her neck hole joint. After that attach one of her faceplates that you wish to her hair sculpt. She comes with a standard smile expression, an upset expression and of course a kissing expression. How to change the faceplate? Simply take off her fringe & her default faceplate, then insert one of the faceplate that you wish to her hair sculpt & reinsert the fringe again. As for the face themself, she has a mole under her right eye. I wouldn’t mind, they added this since it shows her some sexiness element from her face, the mole was actually came from herself in the game.
The school bag can be hold by one of her hand parts or hang it onto her shoulder. The bag contains a key ring of herself wearing a Tanuki costume, though the key ring is adhered to her bag.
Now, choker clearly must be incorporate into her neck, & in my opinion the choker must be keep very safe since it’s goddamn small compare to her other parts, thank God they also provided a plastic wrap to keep the stuff safely although I prefer to keep my box too.
They also provided her trademark favorite raccoon-ear head band, surely must wear it onto her head but in my opinion those raccoon-ear head band looks pointless for her… Doesn’t sounds really fit to her, yet it’s easy to fall & won’t patch very well to her head. I like taking photos of the figures but no more shot for that raccoon thing on the future.
A tip-toe feet was included for her kissing part where she tried to reach her boy’s lips, to patch them it’s a bit hard for me. Honestly, tip-toe feet part was kinda a bit unnecessary in my opinion since the differs is very minor, but it’s for kissing part though…
Of course from every most Figma’s I guess, she was also given a stand set allowing to detain her pose, precisely a three-jointed figma stand and base.
Lastly, the extra hand parts for her. From the attached to her box, she got a pair of outstretched palm, a pair of pointing finger parts, a pair of fistful hand parts, a pair of holding hand parts, & 1 of her trademark hand for her style. Holding hand parts can be use to hold her bag, even she can hold any other figure accessories from other company, for example I had S.H.Figuarts Shadow Moon, & I tried to make her holding Shadow Moon’s famous weapon Satan Saber, & Twin Saber. Surprisingly, it fits to her hands although yeah, her hands are smaller than the weapon themself. But I don’t suggest you all to do exactly like me, if you want to keep the quality in a good shape constantly. Precisely, this is to avoid her hand hole become outstretched, maybe Figma are sturdy, but still we must handle with care like handling other figures.
I think that’s the only thing that I can say on this review, & just to tell you again this Figma Nene marked to be my very 1st owned Figma. So, yes… I’m still new on experiencing Figma, but hope for the upcoming new Figma I can be more competent on researching them. Overall…
Pros: MF & GSC did a fine job on how Figma should be: sturdy, smooth, flexible, & poseable figure. The details are quite outstanding for me, even contained some minor elements. Among all Figma parts I love the holding hand parts, since it’s very flexible to hold anything. Although, we shouldn’t have to use them to hold objects other than her parts(school bag, raccoon-ear head band, & choker), this may cause an outstretched to the parts. Figma is surely a must have if you love action figure, as a rookie I really like it although I’ve always thought this is a girl’s toy on the beginning.
Cons: The tip-toe feet was kinda hard for me to get her joint attached, & for me it’s sound unnecessary for her since I only sees a minor edits between the original attached one. My advice they should make an extra joint for the original feet for the tip-toe feet like S.H.Figuarts did to most of their figures instead of another pair parts but… It may sounds awkward & unecessary too since her foot was friggin’ small to be add extra joint… The raccoon-ear head band is also hard to put it properly to her head for me, especially on the short hair version(original) yet it’s easy to fall. Just a personal taste, those raccoon-ear head band only makes her looks odd & I don’t see any cuteness from that raccoon thing on her… She should be better to have more faceplates but I understand the budget things from them. Also the hairs was a bit annoying since if we always get them patched with the faces, the faces gets a minor traces tint from the bangs. & lastly the problem of her skirt that can’t make her move her leg freely, & it’s pain in the arse if we try to make her bend her legs or sitting.
Small Parts: 3/5
Accuracy sculpt: 5/5
Well, seems like Black is having a problem with girls… Thank you for reading
