Hey, fellow mfc-members and welcome
to another review!

This review contains NSFW content, if that's not your cup of tea I'd suggest you turn around now and be on your way. :3

Today I'll be taking a look at ITEM #604109 original character Usada Yu based on and illustration by Saitom. This beauty is brought to us by Alphamax and will get a companion in the, hopefully not so far off, future ITEM #861751 (very exciting news~♡) and a color variant apparently.
I initially passed on this figure because I didn't really like the combination of the base/sword and the rest but when I saw the first pictures of her I wanted to kick myself for that. Luckily, I found a local shop that still had preorders open, though I had to wait before she arrived at my doorstep.

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
As always, we'll be starting with the box. For Yu we get a full plastic one. Some may say that the design is too minimalistic, but I love it tbh. The black is a mixture of matte with a shiny pattern reminiscent of fishnet stockings and the sides (barring the bottom) have the figure name as well as the logo from her jacket decorating them. The front allows a pretty good look at Yu's upper half through a very big window.

Yu comes in a normal blister, no additional ones since she has no exchangeable parts (and she's wearing what can be cast-off).

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
This figure comes in 4 parts straight out of the box: main body, sword, bunny tail and base...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250712.jpeg
as well as an instruction sheet (ofc in Japanese) and postcard of the illustration she's based on.

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
The sword with its pixelated look is very reminiscent of old video games and fittingly the coloring is flat. As a nice feature the pixels have some structure to them, and the blade has a slightly translucent look.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250714.jpeg

The base too is "made up" of pixels, silver and gold ones this time. It being heart-shaped still makes it look cute and I like how it's set up with little steps.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250715.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250716.jpeg
For the figure there are 2 metal pegs going into her foot (and with a bit of force they go all the way in). As for the sword... the translucent tip goes into the hole in the base (it's a so-so fit).
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250717.jpeg

Last but not least (for the props) the bunny tail... it has a bit of blue shading and sculpting going for it but is otherwise pretty unremarkable.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250718.jpeg
Do note that the tail is magnetic, meaning you'll just have to put it in place (it's not a very strong magnet though).

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
Spin around...

Got to love how the pose adds some motion to the figure.

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
Yu shows us a cute smile with a slight blush on her cheeks. I'm really weak to her face and hair since they look so great together.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250727.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250738.jpeg

Apart from a few seams here and there her flowing white mane with all the different strands looks fantastic with just the right amount of shading. The headband with the bunny ears too looks great, I especially like the folds and the shiny finish.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250739.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250740.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250741.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250742.jpeg

A bunny outfit would hardly be complete without a bowtie collar would it?
The bowtie looks good too with the creases and the shiny finish that fits right in with the rest of the outfit.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250754.jpeg

Going further down we can marvel at Yu's magnificent chest. Her breasts are slightly balloony (as if the strings of her top could hold the weight x3), but it doesn't look bad with her bent pose (plus, she's very shapely overall).
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250757.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250759.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250760.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250761.jpeg
It's nice how they added the "stretching" look to her top since it's not only the strings being tight but also the coloring on it getting lighter as well as the structure of the top getting "flatter".

Like Yu's hair her college jacket is fluttering and crinkling heavily. The shiny finish really enhances that impression. I particularly like the rolled-up sleeves and how the jacket slid off one of her shoulders. The bunny logo on the back is a nice addition as well (albeit normally hidden under her hair).
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250769.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250770.jpeg

Yu has very slender fingers hidden under black faux leather gloves with white cuffs that match her collar quite well. No complaints here.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250771.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250772.jpeg
The (probably ps) gamepad looks great too, though it was hard to capture on pictures.

I sure love Yu's body sculpt, because she's got a bit of meat to her. The visible belly just looks so soft and cute (also nice to see that her navel goes a bit deeper)~♡
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250773.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250774.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250775.jpeg

The panties feature the same structure as her top which slightly reminds me of pixels and they're also held in place by little strings/ribbons. They also added the color gradient for the more "stretched" parts which makes the panties look like they're too small as well. x3
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250776.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250789.jpeg
Yu has some meat on her shapely little butt as well and while the bunny tail does complete the... well... bunny look... I prefer her without it because you can see her butt better that way. x3

The legs with the fishnet stockings look gorgeous and I like how it looks like they really dig into her thighs (though it might be a bit excessive). This is my first figure with real fabric stockings so I'm a bit worried about stains but that's a problem for the future me.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250786.jpeg
The pattern on the garter sure looks nice...

Yu is wearing black lacquer pumps that really complement her outfit and while they are pretty simple, they're flawless.

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
Now time for some cast-off... (๑♡⌓♡๑)
In and of itself using the cast-off option is pretty simple for all parts. First you detach her head then slip of the jacket with her arms and then you open the strings of her top and panties. Doe exert caution though especially with those thin strings (plus paint transfers can happen). Also removing her panties is a bit hard because you have to wriggle them out from between her legs (reattaching them is even worse btw), but its manageable.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250790.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250793.jpeg

After getting rid of the "useless" clothing another spin around... x3
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250794.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250797.jpeg

I really can't decide if I prefer Yu clothed or not because she looks gorgeous nude as well.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250798.jpeg

Without the top her chest seems even bigger or am I hallucinating? O__o
The softly colored nipples sure look nice.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250799.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250800.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250801.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250802.jpeg
My only minor complaint here is the weld between her breasts. This probably can't be avoided, but still. On the other hand, I like that you can see her armpits.

Gosh, I love that body sculpt, there's even an ever so slight midriff bulge.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250803.jpeg

Apart from a very beautiful round butt, Yu also has sculpted genitalia. Not as detailed as some other figures but she's definitely not lacking in that area.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250804.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250805.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250807.jpeg

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
Last but not least some size comparisons...
Excluding the base and bunny ears Yu reaches a height of around 25cm. With her bent pose that sounds about right for a 1/6 figure and she most definitely fits right in with other figures of that scale like ITEM #718982.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250810.jpeg

If you go below that she'll quickly start to dwarf other figures. ITEM #287974 has no scale given but she's obviously no 1/6 and ITEM #464672 is a regular 1/7.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250811.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250812.jpeg

Going even smaller wouldn't really make sense but if you find figures that have a lot going on with their base it might still work. It kinda does with these 2 Myethos figures after all.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/07/05/2250813.jpeg

~◦*◦✾◦˚°˖*゚✲*❁*✲゚*˖°˚◦✾◦*◦~
I sure had little to complain this time and for good reason. The cast-off parts work well, and she looks fantastic. It actually surprises me that I love this figure as much as I do now after I initially dismissed getting her. She might be among my favorites now though since she is just too beautiful. (●´□`)♡

That's it for this review! Thanks for reading, I hope you liked it! ^^
If you don’t mind, I’d love some constructive criticism,
but if you don’t feel like posting any your thoughts on the figure are also very welcome. :3

broken-Toybox2 månader sedan#78472689Yeah, I noticed that customizing font colors won’t be a thing anymore ever since the new modes were introduced (makes ma a bit sad tbh). :/
I like her theme too and they churned out the unpainted prototype of her sister quite fast, I hope they update her soon~♡
The jacket is great, I’m a sucker for casual clothing like that and it really adds something cool to the overall look.
Whichever you use, change isn’t always easy once you figured your camera out. Btw what kind of phone did you get?^^


Yeah right now it's hard to customize anything because you won't be knowing which version of the website people browse. There are even differences in lay-out of pictures and profiles depending on which mode you use...I use dark mode myself and try to let everything look good in that mode, hoping other people are using the same... :P

Hrmm, most work on figures is delayed nowadays, but I hope so too!

I got a Samsung Galaxy S10+, it has a lot of cool picture modes as well. Buuuut now that I've tested some more with it inbetween this comment and my last one here, I can confirm my compact camera was actually better. With this phone it's camera it looks good when viewed in a small size, but once fullscreen on a computer it's a lot more grainy than my compact. However, when resized and small inserted in a blog, the phone pictures actually do beat the compact camera hrrmm.

Anyhow I've become better at using my actual newly bought camera in the meantime, so I might just completely use that instead. Except for pictures during work on cosplay and other crafts, because I don't want it to get dirty. :D

Maakie6 månader sedan#75530338At first I thought your text was missing, but I've been browsing the website in dark mode recently. xD
Nice review as always, I really love the theme of this figure~ I'm looking forward to how the matching ones will turn out. :)
My favorite part of this figure after the (for obvious reasons) sword and base is her jacket. :)
By the way, I got a new phone with a really good camera a week ago, so now I can also join the 'pictures with your phone' club! There are so many options on it, it's quite crazy! Automatic blurring and filtering effects etc. I'm pretty sure the camera is better than my compact camera from before, but it does not beat my current system camera. If I wouldn't have bought that system camera half a year ago though, I would have for sure replaced my compact with this phone camera!

Hehe, I also thought of you liking this figure! Hopefully you can get her for a good price later (or maybe already did so in the meantime?). :)

Cloudberry1 år sedan#63198116Wow, it's a really pretty (and sexy) figure. I think she looks good both nude and non-nude and I love the 8-bit theme with itShe sure does, probably one of the best Skytube figures so far (at least imo). :3

In addition to the cool 8-bit theme, she has so many neat little features I hadn't noticed before like the faux leather finish on parts of her outfit.
Great review as always!
Thank you! (・∀・○)

I know painfully well how you feel there. :/
Maybe you'll like the color variant once they show her though. As of now I'm personally not a fan of the pink and the white bikini top, but she might end up looking surprisingly good.

Those were a bit hard to notice in the promo pictures since the focus lay elsewhere for sure. This is definitely one of those figures that's way better in person. :3
