Final Fantasy X 1/6 scale Lulu

The second in my collection of Final Fantasy X kotobukiya figurines. Personally Lulu is my favourite character from the game (though I am fond of all of them!). It was years ago that I bought this figure, and she came in around $100. Since she is so old I had to dust her off before taking pictures, as I was doing so I noticed some marks on her nose, they are very small but I am really annoyed about it as I have no idea where they have come from. I also noticed it is very hard to dust this lady off as i couldnt find anything small enough to get into her nooks, including in between her breasts!

I would say Lulu overall is highly detailed. The belts on the front of her dress are all different in some way and this is incorporated into the figure. The same goes for the flower design along her sleeves and end of her dress.  Where as she is not the most bright and colourful figures in the world, I feel she gives off a positive vibe. The moogle she holds really compliments the character as well as helping to add a bit of colour. The little red ball at the top of the moogles head isn’t very secure, so be careful when touching it, one slip of the hand and it’d fly right off. What is unique about this figure is the fact that she does not have a stand, she balanced using the train at the back of her dress.

Where as the face sculpturing and expression is very true to the character, something that bothers me a bit is the fact that the bangs on this figure are longer than what they are on the character for some reason. Her hair pins are all highly detailed and look beautiful. Her jewellery rest nicely on her boobies! Again her accessories are bringing colour to the figure.

Overall score: 9/10

Gothic Lolita Ver. Haruhi

Firstly, I’d like to say I’m not a big fan of Haruhi, and personally I don’t see what the big fuss is about the anime, I wasn’t captivated by it in the slightest. However!, when I saw this Gothic Lolita Haruhi figure I was quite impressed! Mostly because the dress she is wearing is highly detaild and very beautiful. The usual yellow hair-band she wears is replaced with a black one sporting lovely red roses.

Here is a picture of my actual Gothic Lolita Haruhi figurine. On a high note, she is very similar to the prototype which most stores and sellers display! Usually prototypes are of a far higher quality than the actual product which can lead to disappointment when buying online. Online is the only way I can buy figures as the ones I’m interested in are only available in Japan at most times, and that’s why I have a big issue with the prototypes, it makes sense to compare them to the product I have received and let others know what to expect!

Haruhi is very detailed around her dress, showing small creases and frills really created a beautiful effect. Despite this, her face is nothing to be praised, her eyes are dull as if they are just stickers. They aren’t of course, but they just look lifeless, I’m thinking a more interesting expression on her face would have made the figure much nicer. Her mouth is not the best either, it basically looks like a big smudge of red, which of course is supposed to be her smile though it just looks rather strange for the theme of the figure. Perhaps a more cutsie looking pose and face would have been more appropriate?

One thing I really appreciate about this figurine is the engraved plaque on the stand! It just gives the figure this important expensive feel, and really gives it that extra something. The stand itself fit the figure perfectly and I had no problem fixing the actual figure onto it.

Overall score: 7/10

I really recommend this to big fans of Haruhi! There are many figures of the character out these, but I think this one is worth the slightly steeper price!
