Yo, hows it going everyone? Now, I’m back again for another figure review. After the review of Figma Mikuru Adult Ver. now it’s the time where the young one comes, Figma Mikuru Asahina Uniform Version. Nothing in particular reason why I get ahold of her but to pair her with my S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider 1Go THE FIRST along with Cyclone, since I’ve made a photoshoot of my Kamen Rider 1Go THE NEXT with her Adult Ver. As you know her, Mikuru is a fictional character from the Haruhi Suzumiya light novel series. She is the fourth member to make an appearance, and is also the only character other than Kyon to be brought into the SOS Brigade against her will. She is defined by Kyon to be extremely cute, and often finds herself in situations of sexual harassment, which are usually forced on her by Haruhi Suzumiya. She is in fact a time traveler from the future with the purpose of observing Haruhi Suzumiya during the course of the story line. She is voiced by Yuko Goto in the Japanese anime adaption and Stephanie Sheh in the English version. Yup, no more spoiler of her since I nolonger wanted to make this review being too wordy. Mikuru Uniform Ver. has a white & yellow colored box, which is appeared to be plain simple.. The product number is 006 & she is a standard release. Mikuru Uniform Ver. is one of the very old release of Figma, & she also has a few accessories aswell….
She has 2 extra face plates, alternate indoor school shoes, stand set, & extra Interchangeable hand parts. Only that? Is there anything else? See picture above then.
This Mikuru is wearing her white & cyan colored shirt with red long tie, & cyan skirt school uniform much like her other fellow figma series of The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi. However, it is focusing on her breasts and her hips, Mikuru’s perfect proportions were re-calculated. The difference in the SOS Brigade member’s heights was also re-calculated. Actually, nothing special but plain simple for me… Well, what do we expect? We already got alot of Figma high school girls around for sure..
There you are… Her head sculpt has 3 variant faceplates which is standard smile, as a very common Figma’s expression for sure… The rest is frightened face, & crying face. Frightened face is one of her common expression in her anime appearance showing her “Moe” mode. But for my opinion, this faceplate seems kinda a bit plain. But, still very useful to make certain pose like I did in some pictures here. & Crying face is her expressions where she got a sexual harassment by her friend’s Haruhi. Brilliant I must say, this faceplate really got the part really outstanding although she lacks some tears if this is were called crying, for me this is more suitable as a screaming expression. we can create many pose that showing her being teased, harassed, tortured, even frightened by something’s scary, & many more. Much like her adult ver. Mikuru’s hair sculpt is colored orange but, it shows some differs from her adult counterpart for sure, although still bear the same style. The sculpt of the Adult one looks more natural for me & better details on the sculpt, also the PVC material is much2 better than the Uniform one. It’s obvious that the Adult one got more better quality, since her Uniform one is an older release of Figma.
Overall, Mikuru looked pretty decent made, but her design is nothing special for me, although the uniform looked pretty unique, except part of her body which is her big busts. The PVC of her hair is the same like other Figmas, which means the material is hard thick & it’s hard to move her head freely… The good news for me is Mikuru’s cyan skirt is made soft, allowing her to be able to move her legs more free without much obstacles. Despite being decent made, my Mikuru actually has some paint transfer & bleeds that ruining her clean white suit mainly… 1st one is on her upper arms which got a paint transfer from her orange colored hair, the worse one is on her right upper arm. The rest is if I looked more carefully, my Mikuru’s painting on certain parts looked a little messy since they got some paint bleeds. But, what’s the big deal if it’s too small to be seen, right?
Her extra accessories is only her alternate shoes which is mentioned as an indoor shoes. Mikuru won’t gonna be a boring Figma for me by her outdoor shoes only since my whole figma school girls already got them. I personally changed her outdoor school into indoor to be her main shoes, since I’m bored with the outdoor one.. The sculpt is so so but much better than her outdoor one.
As usual Figma always comes with a poseable figma stand, that makes it possible to recreate various scenes. Much like my Mikuru Adult Ver. this one also looked more clear than the rest of my figma other series display stand.
Lastly, her hand parts! From the one attached to is a pair of fistful hand parts, the extras are proximate outstretched palm, outstreched wide open palm, a pair of holding hand parts which her fingers were molded stick to her hand like my Shana, & a pair of pointing finger parts. Since Mikuru is an early release of Figma, her hand joints requires a ball attachment to patch to her wrist, & it’s hard to attach the hand parts, even harder than my Shana one.
In my previous review of Figma Mikuru Adult Ver., there’s a several parts of her that also suitable to her Uniform Ver. Which is Sleeping Face Plate, Desk & Chair accessories. The further review of this part can be seen on my Figma Mikuru Adult Ver. Review. Now, for my thoughts on her using this parts, the parts are exactly really fit to her Uniform Ver. than her Adult Ver. & she even can sit perfectly easy.
Overall, I feel so so on her, because I think everything of her is too plain simple. But atleast I feel cheered by her crying face, since it’s really fun to use it. I wouldn’t buy her if I don’t think of pairing her with my S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider 1Go & Cyclone THE FIRST.
Pros: I’m quite satisfied on how GSC & MF did her skirt & her face plates, because it’s really fun & easier to do the pose for her. In terms of being poseable, the Uniform Ver. can pose better than her Adult Ver., so to compare with them I’d prefer her Uniform Ver. for being more poseable. But, for design I like her Adult Ver. better than her Uniform Ver.
Cons: To put the hand parts to her wrist is a total pain in the arse, since they requires a ball attachment to patch her hand parts, & it’s very hard for me to attach/detach them. Changing shoes is also hard but not really a big deal for me.
Small Parts: 1/5
Accuracy sculpt: 5/5
Thanks for… Wait a minute! Another Extra!
Even in her Adult Version, Mikuru is still the same for being a victim of sexual harassment…
Yup, thanks for reading, everyone!
