♥Hello Everyone!♥
Today I'll be doing my first review of the Aijima Cecil figure by Alter. I was looking at him and realized there weren't any pictures of him so I figured I'd do a quick review of him sense I've always wanted to make one before!

♥The Box♥

I love his box a lot! The large windows in the front and the back makes it so if you wanted to keep him in the box you could still see a lot of the figure, and the green colors and details match him perfectly!
I'm glad they made it look like the other St☆rish figures despite him coming out much much later.


Let's free him from his prison and check out his base!
♥Base♥

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Zukirenn1520896326.jpeg

His base is very simple and completely clear with some small details around the ring. Not much going for it but it gets the job done with simplicity, which I enjoy! I'd much prefer a simple clear base than a mirror or black base personally!♥

He's held in with one metal peg, as you would expect. But I was very happy to see that the peg went completely in without much effort at all! It is easy to put him on the base and he holds very strong! He didn't wobble hardly at all even with all my turning and flipping I did of him to get pictures.

Now lets move onto the real main event!

♥Do a Quick Spin!♥

You'll have to forgive me for my focusing issues on some details in these pictures, we are going to look at details now though so hopefully if you can't see anything well in these 360 pics you will find what you are looking for below!

his face and hair are my favorite parts about him! They did a really nice job sculpting the light fluff on his hair and his facial expression is perfect for his cheery character. He's also one of the first figure's I've ever personally owned that just really pulls off the open mouth smile. Usually to me they look nice but have a dopey look from certain angles, but his just works no matter what way I look at him.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Zukirenn1520896990.jpeg

There is even detail here in the small flower he holds! I figured the part facing him would just be white when I first bought it because of the angle its at but it has a very charming pink tint to it.

His jacket flows very nicely as well! His right leg is up in the air and it really does actually look like he kicked his jacket out when he lifted up his leg. I also love the shiny pearl tint the jacket has to it, it really contrasts well with his dark skin tone and hair color.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Zukirenn1520896795.jpeg

I tried to get several pictures of his abbs but I just could not get a really good shot of how great they look, I feel that not even the promotional pictures do them full justice because they just look that amazing on him! Sweet lord this boy is like 16 htf

Also in this picture you can see his tattoo pretty well. It's hard to see really clearly without lifting his arm slightly so I almost wish they would have sculpted his coat open a bit

Looking at his bracelets and his very nicely sculpted arms!
The bracelets both have that nice pearl paint on them as well. The smaller gold one, however, is not actually sculpted on, which is one of the only things I don't like. You can move it around somewhat but due to the angle of the arm it's just going to slide back to his wrist if you touch it at all. In this original outfit he wears it more up on his forearm (though it does look better down on his wrist).


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Zukirenn1520896584.jpeg

In the promotional images they show the opening facing toward him instead of being on the back of his wrist. With enough gentle persuasion you can move it so it doesn't show the giant hole with the bracelet, whcih I enjoy more personally.

Also in this picture please enjoy those very lovely nails and nicely sculpted small hands!

I might be wrong but I do remember this outfit had white pants and a slightly different waist tie on it when he originally wore it, but to be honest I like this a bit better. The belt tassels look nice, not the best I've ever seen but certainly not bad. I really like the movement of them though and how it overlaps the coat. The black pants also just work a bit better with the outfit overall. The belt also has the pearl paint on it while the pants do not, giving them a nice matte look that works well with his skin.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Zukirenn1520897164.jpeg

and for the last bit I'll point out probably the messiest area of the figure is the gold trimming at the bottom of the coat. As you've seen in the other pictures the other lines and symbols look amazing but the trim at the bottom does have more than just a few little paint marks. It's not super noticeable and it doesn't ruin the figure at all for me but it's for sure not the nicest to look at.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Zukirenn1520900976.jpeg

All the other trimming looks amazing though!

♥And That's Cecil!♥

He is a bit pricey sense he is a limited + exclusive, but in my mind he was worth it. He was really the only boy from UtaPri I ever figured I would buy a figure from but If I do ever see any of the boys from quartet night I think I'll pick them up because I really do like the look of the pearl paint that was apparently used on all of them.

If I had to give him an overall score, it would be a 9/10!

+ Nice and dynamic pose
+ 10 million dollar smile
+ Probably the best outfit they could have picked
+ Wonderful small details
+ Firm base
+ Paint contrasts nicely

- Gold trimming could be better
- Smaller bracelet moves and has a big awkward gap in it


I hope you all enjoyed looking at pictures of him and reading this review! It was my first one so please go easy on me, but feel free to criticize me as needed! Comments/questions welcome!

Senbei (Il y a 3 mois) #31447976A great review! I really wanted to see pictures of Cecil since his pose is so so great! Thank you so much!
As someone collecting Quartet Night and waiting for Camus to arrive in the mail, I can say the other 3 look amazing! Ranmaru is a little on the blander and static side but Reiji and Ai look great! Also they come in these really cool full transparent boxes which makes them look so so good even being displayed in just the box alone. If you're interested in the Quartet Night guys, I'd recommend picking them up! :)
