Stella Vermillion (Broccoli) 1/8 ReviewStella Vermillion (Broccoli) 1/8 Review



Today we’re taking a look at Stella Vermillion from the 2015 Fall series, Chivalry of a Failed Knight (AKA Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry). I enjoyed the series way more than I was expecting, in fact it was probably one of my favourites from that season, and that’s a big call. Stella played no small part in that. She’s just…so good. This is my very first Broccoli figure, so let’s find out what kind of an impression they make and if Stella is indeed Stellar.

Nothing much to note with this box. Packaging is standard, although very smart because this box is way smaller than I was expecting. I appreciate that they have the original illustration and they’ve clearly tried to match the colours of the figure with the box.

Overall, I think this is a very solid figure and I don’t have to much to complain bar two aspects. The first being Stella’s facial expression. It’s a bit odd and not entirely in character. Stella is a very determined character and it’s hard to imagine her with an almost blank stare while leaving her mouth wide open. Especially in that pose. It’s a similar complaint to the one I had with Alter’s Alisia Heart. And the fact that she has a slight blush confuses me. Yes, Stella does blush a lot, but why in this figure with that pose?

And the second aspect is the base. Broccoli, how lazy can you get? Admittedly, I’d prefer it to be all black rather than plain white, but still. This isn’t a prize figure. I’ll admit that my eyes aren’t on the base though…

They’re on Stella! Because if you can get past those two details, and I completely understand if you can’t, everything else is pretty solid. Maybe not amazing, but still commendable.

I love the concept of having her uniform ripped. Not only is it interesting to look at, but it’s also incredibly sexy and Stella figure that isn’t sexy just wouldn’t be doing her justice. Her ripped uniform certainly adds some lovely spice to what would have been a pretty plain figure otherwise. You’d probably say it’s the highlight.

Speaking of sexy, taking a look under her skirt and having my breath taken away, I wish that they made her a cast off. That would have been glorious and perfectly appropriate.

The pose is dynamic and her hair, ripped clothes and bow, which is almost comically large, adds to the sense of motion. Speaking of the bow, it takes up a lot of space. I can’t really hold that against the figure, but it’s something to note.

Stella’s hair has some nice motion to it. And although I don’t think the sculpt is anything to write home about, I appreciate the very nice shading. The paint job on Stella in general is solid and very competent. Skin tone and eyes especially.

I’m happy with the detail on Stella’s sword. The pattern or graphic on it is surprisingly elaborate when you take a good look at it and I like that it’s not just a flat colour but has that classic translucent fade.

While I’m disappointed by a couple aspects and it’s not the perfect Stella figure, there’s still plenty here for me to be happy about about. I certainly do not regret buying her. She’s sexy and dynamic. And if that doesn’t sum up Stella, I don’t know what does.

Thanks for reading/watching!

At least for now, if you are into this character and want a figure of her in her school uniform... this is the only choice. Luckily this one turned out to be not bad. Though her cheeks look a bit too chubby if you look straight at her face IMO, and I am disappointed at her base for having a design lacking any kind of logo or texture on it.

I haven't finished watching the show yet, it's not like I gave it up or something, just forgot about it before really noticed that. Though I admit that it was like a fresh breeze when Stella and the main hero of the show identified their relationship quite early in the show (Thus make it quite different from other harem shows), but the setting that "the main hero is not truly weak, just having an ability which is not recognized in current rating system and needs to be used wisely" still does not interests me that much, because the main hero, in the end, still granted some very powerful stuff to play with, not that different from other shows at all.

XRaptor7 (2 år sedan) #14409958Looks pretty nice, lots of good shots here.
I remember watching Rakudan Kishi right after it aired, but to be honest I watched too many battle-school-harems in too short a space of time and it's taking me a lot of reading of plot summaries to remember the plot and characters (to be honest I don't even know what the main character looked like). The only one I remember well is Asterisk because that got a second season and a game that I got.
Figure looks really nice, I like the details with the clothing damage and dynamic posing. I dunno if I can leave that sitting around on display with that exposed chest, but maybe I'll hope for the price to fall to 6-8k before I snap it up.


I'll be curious to see how the price goes on this one.
I understand how all the battle-school-harems can blend together. Rakudai was a highlight for me because I thought it did a lot of things different (It's not a harem for one).
Thanks for the comment!
