UPDATE as of June 8, 2020:

I actually ended up PURCHASING BOTH! Hahaha I just couldn’t decide.

Here I have an Unboxing of VOLKS Inc. Ultimate Figure Series — Card Captor Sakura Kinomoto and Cerberus (Kero) BANPRESTO figure

The Tomy Takara Liccarzie Sakura doll will be up, once I received her :)

Hello community,


Liccarize Card Captor Sakura (Pink costume)
OR Volks Ultimate figure series Card Captor Sakura [Sakura Kinomoto School Uniform ver.]


www.flickr.com/...


Here I am torn between the 2 dolls and I would need help in choosing which one to get. I have never own any of the dolls or is familiar with their brand, so I'm looking to see which is best in terms of pose-ability, size, and articulation.

I would like it to be as close as Sakura Kinomoto, also where I can post her in different styles.


One more thing I noticed, most people like to swap bodies with OBITSU to achieve better articulation. If this is the case, which is the best Obitsu female body to purchase?

Hope someone could help me here! Thank you very much!

AuriIl y a 2 mois#77873702You're very much welcome! I'll be waiting for the video :)moeronpanIl y a 2 mois#77858965If you do want extra hands for the pure neemo, you can buy them, they're just sold separately. Just make sure to get the right size (there are only two sizes, regular and XS, and the XS one will only fit on XS dolls because they have thinner wrists than the other sizes. For some reason I will never ever understand, all of the male dolls no matter what size use XS hands though). I personally think the M size might be too tall for how I imagine Sakura though, I personally imagine her as a XS or S pure neemo.
In the end its still your decision. If it helps with the decision any more, the material does feel different. Pure neemos are hard plastic bodies but the new obitsu ones feel soft/slightly squishy to the touch with a frame inside. But even if you change your mind on what you end up with later, its not like you cant just buy the other body at a later date. I like the doll hobby cos you can always change stuff later. (and if that happens, you'll have a body all ready to be used for a friend for Sakura, cos thats what happens when you get into this hobby.)

Hey so I know this article is pretty old, but I figured you might want some more information now that you chose your Liccarize Sakura. :) You made a good choice. I customize 1/6 scale dolls and have a ton of old VOLKS blank heads in my collection for this purpose, and I can tell you with certainty that VOLKS character dolls never had unique face sculpts. All of their dolls like their old Saiyuki ones, CCS, and more, use their roster of "SH 01-09" versions and their "NGG 01-03" ones for most male faces. Most of the Saiyuki boys all use the same NGG-01 face, the NGG-02 face is the one most people dislike due to its super strong, uniquely shaped nose and chin/mouth rendering it very uncustomizeable for anything but VERY specific male characters, and the NG-03 is the rarest and most highly coveted by collectors (just the blank heads can often fetch $60-100USD on the aftermarket sometimes due to the rarity, I was lucky enough to find a batch for cheap) due to its pretty "bishounen" look which can make absolutely STUNNING doll faces like this in the hands of experienced artists: img.aucfree.com...

The Volks CCS Sakura doll looks like it uses their typical "SH-01" face, a super common one for like 90% of their girl dolls. Either that or it utilizes the VERY short lived "little sister line" EB-Mini-01 face, which is like SH-01 but squashed a bit in the cheeks/mouth area to make it appear more young/chibi.

Once you notice the samefacing on every single Volks character doll you won't be able to unsee it, and you'll be so glad you went with Liccarize lol. Azone has problems with sameface-molding their character dolls too (take a look at their Hetalia line and you'll quickly come to see the same exact male face mold being overused for Every. Single. Doll.), so when purchasing character dolls I tend to either seek out unique molds, or simply customize my own. I'm in the middle of customizing a new Kyuuketsuki Hime Miyu doll to be in scale with my Larva doll. The Takara Tomy and Tsukuda Hobby dolls are gorgeously done for how old they are, but Larva being the same size as Miyu (picture/548271&...) is...distracting as hell,to put it mildly, when their canon size difference looks like this:

static.zerochan...

She's supposed to be this tiny, dainty girl (forever stuck in a young body when she turned into a vampire) next to Larva's like 7 foot tall frame (he's not technically a man but a creature called a shinma, hence his weird arms/hands). So those doll height...non differences drive me absolutely insane lol.

Anyway, feel free to contact me if you want to talk shop about doll customizing, I'm always happy to answer any questions if I can too! :)

jojostarIl y a 2 mois#77873673Alright! Thanks so much for your help!
I went ahead with the Obitsu size S, 24cm. It got me with the extra hands as well, want to size her with my 10” Meliodas RAH so this should be good right? Hehe. Hoping it all works out.
Will post a video once received! Thank you, thank you again!

AuriIl y a 2 mois#77872294Obitsu is fine. Hands are sold separately for Pure Neemo and the magnets on the feet of the obitsu one are definitely a nice bonus for poses!

jojostarIl y a 2 mois#77857732Aaahh I’m still so torn between these 2:
Obitsu - order.mandarake...
Pure Neemo - order.mandarake...
I like the Obitsu one because it comes with extra hands.... but for some reason I’m being attracted to Pure Neemo? Basing on the items and link I provided, which one would best fit?

moeronpanIl y a 2 mois#77837723As said pure neemo are also good and I love their aesthetic, but I do really love the new Obitsu for the poseability (this depends on what you want of course). New and old Obitsu have better poseability than PureNeemo, but the old ones aren’t aesthetically pleasing. I love the slight chub of pure neemo bodies but it does bug me that they can’t touch their face, as that’s a really cute pose. The newer pure neemo (emotion2) can kind of, but it lost the cute chubbiness that drew me to the body to begin with. I think the new Obitsu is a good blend of aesthetic and function. But it’s up to you and which is easier to find.
The eBay link you posted is the right item, it’s just marked up a little (but nowhere near as bad as things often are in regard to dolls). Usually you can get the new ones from sites like hobbysearch and HLJ but for some reason I can’t find that exact one (right skin tone, height and bust size) on those sites.
But! I will say one advantage pure neemo does have over Obitsu is that every few months or so Azone releases new outfits sized specifically for their pure neemo bodies and there’s some really lovely stuff. They sell them through amiami, hobbysearch etc. Just check the description for what body size they’re compatible with. That way Sakura will never run out of amazing outfits! (Some is these are probably cross-compatible with the Obitsu bodies, but not all)
Whichever you go with is sure to be adorable though and I hope you post another article to show pics of your new Sakura once she comes together!
