Figma and Nendoroid Yui Hirasawa

figma and Nendoroid Yui Hirasawa

It was a last minute decision to get figma Yui. I wasn’t really thinking when I got her but I’m glad that I did. I probably like just about everything about figma Yui Hirasawa, the articulation, the texture of the plastic, the accessories, the design, they all look good. I think Max Factory did a nice job with this figma.

I took some photos of figma Yui and Nendoroid Yui last weekend. I used Nendoroid Playset 01 as the background for the shoot. At first I thought figmas will look awkward with the Nendo playset but I guess figma Yui’s pics turned out okay. Nendoroids are super cute so I don’t have any problem with them with backgrounds and stuff. You can place a Nendoroid beside a trash can and it will still look cute. ^^;

I like both the figma and Nendo Giitas, they were well-made and very detailed. There’s of course the absence of the guitar strings but they’re just small figures so it’s not really a big deal to me.

Aside from the facial expressions of figma Yui, I really like Giita‘s case. It was made with a softer plastic and you can actually fit the guitar inside which is pretty cool. It took me a few minutes to attach the straps though, I was just being careful not to stretch the holes too much.

Yui’s uniform is also made with a soft plastic and it looks good. The creases on it made it look flowy and light. figma Yui also comes with a nice pair of brown school shoes but I wasn’t able to take a photo of that.

It’s difficult not to like Nendo Yui. She’s really adorable. Just like Nendo Mio, Yui also has a cute stand which is more flexible and fits her easily. Gotta love all her facial expressions too.

This last photo is my favorite. I used the figma Yui’s decals to copy the nendo expression. You have to use water to transfer the design to the blank face included in the package. There are various expressions to choose from which is really nice. I like the water slide decals better than regular stickers since it’s thinner and smoother. You just have to be careful not to fold it while sliding onto the face because it will create creases and air bubbles. Just slide it slowly and pat it dry with a paper towel and it’s good to go. I also tried to remove the decal by placing it under running water and rubbing it a bit.

Overall I’m quite happy with my K-On! figures. I didn’t order any more figmas except for Mio. But I’m hoping to complete the Nendoroids (K-On! uniform version), they’re just too cute to resist. ^^;

        Lot of people prefer nendo, but This dosen’t mean that everyone agrees. Personally, I prefer figma version. But that’s normal, I am a figma fanboy.^^

    I’ve the Yui nendo and I ordered my figma Yui too. Being a K-On lover, I just felt like getting most of the K-On stuff.

    You should have try to complete your K-On figmas (not only for nendos). :) But again, they are really selling like hot cakes.

      Figma Mio was shipped yesterday according to the seller I got her from. I hope to receive her soon. I’m not sure about getting Ricchan and Mugi-chan, I haven’t placed my order yet. ^^; It’s really nice to have all K-On figmas, I hope you’ll complete your set. ^^
