Sawamura Eijun 1/9 – Apricot Blossom

LeosachLeosachIl y a 1 anReview
Time for a review (long time I don’t review anything T_T lack of time is killing me... But I managed to find time to write this since its Sawa ♥).

Its kind of biased trying to review Sawa since he is one of my favorite chara and I absolutely love Daiya no A, when a figure was finally announced I swear screamed Lol, too bas was from a new manufacturer and I was apprehensive about how it wld turn, I truly wish kotobukiya decides to make daiya figures but since that didn’t happened (so far! I still have hope!!! >.<) I got Apricot (Btw I don’t buy anything from Di Molto So I kind ignored all its daiya announcements.

The Final result is… Im satisfied but Im truly ignoring all this figure issues because I waited so long for a Daiya figure and im so biased for the chara I truly didn’t care and I love it! But see for yourself the final results.

Anyway pictures will show.


BOX

Simple Box with seidou colours and Sawa pics, the good part is that is quite flat! So its really small and easy to combine with other figures.

SCULPT

One thing i truly Like this figure is how they chose to make him! All twisted in a pitching pose! It gives quite the Idea of movement exactly as the chara do in the show, all proportions are well respected. Some details even the small ones were covered just like the shoes, gloves and the ball!

The Full Body

And about the sculpt it bothers me (just a little) that HUGE seamline they added in his arms, I even pulled the thing to see if its removable but its not after all that is NO POINT since it doesn’t contain exchangeable parts! So why the hell they added a line so big and the arm looks like removable! ¬¬

OBS: Is it me Or they really Crotchentrated a lot in some parts? Lol

FACE

I truly like face seeing the total thing, but Im really confused if it truly looks like sawa or im the one too biased T_T, anyway im satisfied and I truly think it’s a beautiful face all angles are good to see… BAD point apricot must really learn how to sculpt mouths just a hole painted in white with that black line is not so good...

PAINTING
Well... Bad point here.. they gave several shades ok that’s fine but they made it blue! So the whole uniform looks kind “bluish” to me, don’t know if the pics will show better but in person that was the part that most annoyed me.

THE BASE

Good Point (at least for me who is desperate after space to “fit” things) its not a boring round black base (but its not a creative cool one either T_T) instead they made an acrylic support like if it was his shadow! So its cool at least it doesn’t consume much space.

BONUS:
Yeah he got a booty!

Final Thoughts Apricot is a new company so it’s expected to make mistakes, in the end I’m pleased because I truly liked the figure and its my fav chara (of the show) so in the end.. it was worth it … but I can’t ignore all its flaws and price (wasn’t that cheap you know? please give us a better quality!)

Thanks for the review and close up pics. I have been contemplating on getting this. I love the pose but the face seems to be quite off from the manga/anime :(

Tão bom ver uma resenha bem feita dessa figure do Eijun. Ele se tornou o meu personagem favorito dentro do univeso 2D e eu estou com sede de figures para ele. Infelizmente, apesar de ter gostado muito da sua review, eu ainda assim o trabalho da Apricot não ter 'tica tica bum!'. Confesso que o meu sonho seria ver scales figures de DnA feitas pela Kotobukiya (eu adoro a empresa e achei a linha de Prince of Tennis muito boa) e nendoroids pela GSC.
Anyway, obrigada pela incrível review Leo!



Tbm! adoro a Koto e gostaria muito que DnA fosse feito TODO por ela, maaaaas como não rolou.. parei por aqui infelizmente a coleção e to feliz ^^ Obrigado pelo commment

Aquele momento em que você já tinha acabado de escrever o comentário daí clica no lugar errado, recarrega a página e perde o que você tinha escrito. ¬¬' Anyway, eu não conhecia essa empresa, dei uma olhada e parece que é só a segunda figura que eles lançaram e tem mais uma programada, e todas limitadas. É normal ficar apreensivo em comprar algo que não se sabe a qualidade, principalmente pq eles estão cobrando um preço um tanto salgado para uma figura de escala 1/9 (falando nisso, que escala é essa? Não podiam ter feito 1/8 ou 1/10? Ele não ficou destoando do resto?). Olhando as fotos e pelos seus comentários não foi ao todo ruim, felizmente! Vamos torcer para que eles possam ir melhorando daqui para frente. Sempre é bom ver um review de alguma marca ou figura que poucas pessoas tem acesso. Congrats!

Great review! I was honestly on the fence about this but now I'm highly considering it. I also want their Kuramochi but his mouth looks like it got worse treatment than Eijun's. I do like the pose direction that this company is going, I'm glad they are more dynamic (and not huge unnecessary bases so far).
Thank you for the detailed photos!

i like him, my biggest issue would prolly be the really black line on the top of the mouth. as for the blue shading, its really common in art to shade white w/ blue, and infact in daiya no ace the uniforms are often shaded with blue anyways, which is very evident from the image i think they took this pose from? static.tumblr.c... so that might be why they chose blue to shade. anyhow, great review!

HELL YEA SAWAMURA. Thanks for the review! This one looks more true to character than the Miyuki figure. His eyes are super accurate, but the face shape not so much... why did they give him such a huge jaw??

I'm praying so hard that GSC will make a nendo of him. I've sent in so many requests at this point I wouldn't be surprised if GSC starts to ignore me lmao.
