Since I was packageless this week I'll only be reviewing one of my figures today. I will be reviewing my Chroche Leytal Pastalia, she is a character from the game Ar Tonelico II. I have never played nor seen this game, but when I saw this figure it was love at first sight. Her character design is really beatiful and her 'wings' are perfectlt detailed. Well before I go and tell you all her pro's and con's let me show you a few pictures.
As I stated in my last post I don't have a great professional camera, so the pictures won't be of great quality, but I'll do my best to point out things in words.
Her long legs are accentuated too, the short skirt and loose 'cape', make them look even longer. The wide wings and again the loose 'cape' make her waist look even smaller. That added to her bosom, which stands out thanks to the corset she is wearing, makes a very feminine figure without it looking sexual.
From the side you get a better look at the wings too. They are sculpted beatifully and have something playful about them. Some of the feathers stand up, thus creating a less static feeling about it.
From the back you can see the upstanding feathers even better. You can also see her high heels from the back. Even her heels are detailed, with two different colors of gold.
I don't know what her hairpiece means, but it sure is detailed. Two different colors of gold and one silver color, it sounds simple but it is stunning.
Her boots are nicely shaped. They define the shape of the legs very well. The golden details on them are nice too.
Onto the scores.......
Sculpting; 9.5/10, She is sculpted beautifully especially her wings and clothes. There are no real flaws with the sculpting of this figure.
Painting; 7.5/10, the colorscheme is nice, but the coloring isn't gradual enough.
Posing; 8.5/10, I really like her pose, but it is somewhat static, they could've done another facial expression, since this one is kind of blank.
Stand; 8/10 The base fits the colors and does what it is supposed to do. Nothing to object to.
Enjoyment; 8/10, I really like this figure, I fell in love with it instantly. I have a fond memory of bargaining before I was able to get it and I look at it with much enjoyment.
Here is a bonus shot I made a while ago.
I hope you found this review useful. Next week I will probably upload on monday instead of sunday, because I will be going to Tsunacon anime/manga convention in the Netherlands. Thus next weeks post will probably be about Tsunacon too. I will be cosplaying as Anya Alstreim from Code Geass, hopefully I won't catch a cold! XD
See you all next week,
