Ryuko Matoi from Kill La Kill 1/4 bunny figure by FREEing

solluxcaptorsolluxcaptorIl y a 4 moisReview
I've been looking forward to this figure ever since it was announced, I pre-ordered instantly when she went up and finally she is in my hands, I am so happy to have her!! <3 Ryuko is one of my favourite anime characters and I've always wanted a 1/4 bunny but none of the characters really appealed to me so I was very happy when this came out. Besides my love for the character, I love large figures and I love figures that combine fabric elements with the sculpt (like the fishnets on this one for example) so everything about this figure was a must have for me.

Since I think this figure is absolutely beautiful, I definitely have to do a little showcase/review!
I'll start off by dropping a little something new I'm trying to do here, a video showcase which allows me to show her off in motion from different angles.

I'm hoping to do more like this after I've upgraded my camera but I hope this video is still an enjoyable little showcase of Ryuko for those of you who like videos :D (Yes I know my hands are quite shaky, I can't help it ;-; )

And here's the version with pictures and text if you like that kind of thing:

Her box is quite simple but very pleasant to look at. I really like the colours and effects used being very remenicant of Kill La Kill itself and the different shots of Ryuko on the sides and back of the box. The box is huge as you would imagine for a 1/4 scale standing figure.
One disadvantage of her packaging is that the blister inside has an opening for the bent bunny ear to stick out of, if you are unfortunate enough to have yours packed upside down in shipping then the bunny ear will rub against the plastic window and some paint will come off... It happened to me, sadly but I don't think it's a huge flaw because otherwise the packaging is great and mine just unfortunately happened to go through long transit upside down. Just something to be cautious of.

A full shot of the beauty herself! She is truly impressive in every single way, her sculpt and every detail down to her base. I really like the pose they went with, it has that kind of Ryuko attitude to it despite her embarrassed expression. The base itself is rather simple but effective, I really like the glitter effect. However the base itself seems to be giving multiple people problems (including myself) as it is quite difficult to fit Ryuko onto it with the pegs and support provided which of course is rather worrying since she is heavy and needs to be fully supported. (If someone knows a good solution to the base issues, please do let me know!)

A close up on her beautiful face. I know that when the prototype released a lot of people disliked the choice to go with a bashful/embarrassed expression but personally I really like it especially seeing it in person. It contrasts with her full of attitude and confident pose nicely and I really like the cute blush. The face is captured from the show perfectly especially in her eyes. Another feature of the face that I didn't capture at first glance because it is subtle but my boyfriend GIOGIO pointed out to me is that her lips have a little gloss to them which is a nice detail in bringing her to life.

Another detail of her that I love is the gorgeous gloss on this bunny suit and her heels! It can look like black or dark blue under different lighting and those were the two colours I was hoping her bunny suit would be so I'm really happy it can be both at once. I really prefer this type of colour effect to a solid matte colour, it's really stunning and unique.

Kinda side shot of Ryuko! You can see the nice details on her cuffs from this angle and of course this angle is good for admiring her well sculpted figure. I feel like the face looks a little more annoyed than embarrassed from this angle which is pretty cool that it can change depending on how you look at it, maybe worth trying out for the people who didn't like her embarrassed expression.

This shot is a little bit NSFW so I'm going to put it under a spoiler... scroll past if you don't want to see anything lewd :P (Well, lewder than bunny girls to begin with...)

Not only does she look gorgeous from a front and side angle, but she looks amazing from the back too. The details on the fishnets from behind really add to the realism and outline her beautful long legs perfectly. The pose really exaggurates her figure from this angle but definitely in a good way. You can see the detail on her shoulder blades and spine here too which is a really nice touch for realism.

In conclusion I absolutely adore this Ryuko bunny, she came with a rather heavy pricetag but it was reasonable for her size and quality so I'm very glad that I picked her up on release, I would not want to miss out on her! I would also love to get more 1/4 bunnies to pose beside her but I'll have to wait and see if any more characters I like enough get made. I'd love to see a Nonon if they continue a KLK set or a Nia to match the Yoko from Gurren Lagann but I'm not holding out my hopes ;; And I'd kill for a big bunny Kirino ;-;

This is my second review so let me know what you think and if you liked it :D

Also in your youtube video I see a bunch of other figures in your Detolf in the background. Which ones are those two on the bottom shelf?


Thanks! Sorry for the late response, I hope you enjoy her if you have her already now :D I think the two figures you refer to are ITEM #65964 and ITEM #21312

Physis (Il y a 4 mois) #24591986Thanks for this awesome review! I wasn’t too sure about buying her because of her face expression, but as you wrote above she looks more annoyed than embarrassed. And she is so tall!! I also really like the details (her cute face, the shiny bunny suit, the shoes, the base!) But I am not a big fan of the bunny ears ^^ I have never bought this kind of figure before, but I have ordered it thanks to you :)

I'm really happy that I can inspire people to buy her, I hope you love her when she arrives! :D She has really nice details and her overall quality is really high, plus of course that size is impressive! I know what you mean about the bunny ears, I feel like they are a little oversized compared to other bunny girls I own but they don't stick out too much when you look at her overall.

I'm glad I could help change your mind about the expression, I think it can look either embarrassed or annoyed depending on the angle so you can just angle her how you like :D

solluxcaptor (Il y a 4 mois) #24530953Thank you, I'm glad if my review could help at all in your decision to get her! I know some were unsure when her prototype came out but I think she is really gorgeous and 100% worth the purchase :D Thanks for the tip, I have heard about the problems with the softbust sadly so I will be sticking to the regular when I finally get her!

Ordered! I think she will pair up nicely with Misaka Mikoto which share the same embarrassed expression. Now, I only need to patiently wait another year for Kuroneko! ;-) I'm surprised Kirino never got a big bunny figure... but many very popular characters don't and she's long past her prime time now.

trevman256 (Il y a 4 mois) #24526126You can never go wrong with bunny figures, I have around 14 in my collection and have no signs of slowing down. Great job with the review by the way. I might need to start doing this as well.

I'd definitely own more 1/4 bunnies if they made more characters I was interested in, it's just a shame there's not any besides Ryuko really I'll have to keep waiting and see! I can definitely understand the appeal, the quality is really high and worth the money :D Would be nice to see some more reviews too!

sailormatlac (Il y a 4 mois) #24522904Thanks for the review sollux. We both have in common the love of larger scale figures. I was on the fence with this one and didn't pre-order. However, I think I'm about to push the order button in a short matter of time. If you ever get Kirino don't forget to buy the regular version and save yourself a lot of trouble without the softbust.
