But hey, nothing else has arrived yet and the WordPress could always use more words to help lure people over from searches. That also means I get to be kind of lazy and not really need to talk about articulation much (as if I really ever did before).
A fancy picture for the post. Been a while since I’ve done an Ott-lite Abuse picture like this, though. I think it came out well.
Sakuya was purchased unopened from Mandarake. She’s actually still available from the Nico Video web store (the only one of the Touhou Figmas, in fact – I think I’ve heard she’s quite a shelfwarmer for some reason), but after the middleman fees, it turned out Mandarake was still going to be cheaper.
Quick box shot because God damn why is this box so huge.
ALL THAT WASTED SPACE
I guess they really wanted all the Touhous to keep using the same ridiculously large box, because all of that could have easily gone in the smaller regular Figma box.
Almost unnecessary with that previous picture, but anyways. Sakuya has a total of three faces, four pairs of hands – fists, holding things, splayed, and knife-holding, an extra right hand mainly for mop poses, a right hand holding a pocket watch, a combat knife of sorts, six throwing knives, a mop, a di:stage cut-out, and a piece of paper. I don’t know what the paper says, so it’s probably something like one of those Golden Tickets for Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Except it’s for Drunky Zun’s Touhou Factory or something.
Sakuya also comes with a sheet of these emote sticker things. I had a Nendoroid that came with some, but I never tried using them because I was worried I’d only be able to use them once or so. Maybe I should try using these sometime. But I don’t want to use them up.
After the default kinda generic face is this smiling face. Either she’s just being content with things or she’s actually about to kill someone. Also holding the pocket watch, but you can’t really see much of it from its back…
The pocket watch is quite nicely detailed, though.
Final face is an angry/action face. Though looking to one side, which does limit usage somewhat. The combat knife is a bit plain-looking, but it certainly does the job. Sakuya’s braids are made of flexible plastic, so it’s easy to move them around and out of the way for posing. They’re connected to the front hair piece.
The big knife can also be sheathed in the holster on Sakuya’s left leg. Unfortunately, doing so requires popping the leg off at the hip, which is one of those things that makes me go, “WOAH HOLD UP DAWG”. I don’t think the knife would be all that visible at most angles, anyways, so I likely won’t be making much use of this feature.
She comes with a mop because…I guess maids mop? If my Japanese animes are any indication, maids are more for having sex with their masters rather than mopping things. Though I don’t think tatami mats are supposed to be mopped.
Final accessories are the throwing knives. They’re small as fuck and Oh my God I am going to lose them probably. I normally use Revocontainers for storing accessories, and the knives can actually fit through the Revolver Joint peg-sized holes on the container. They have their own set of hands to go with, though getting the knives to go in between the fingers takes some patience and I kind of wonder why they didn’t just make the knives part of the hand sculpt. The hands don’t really have much use beyond holding the knives, and they could have always kept a few seperate knives to act as knives that have already been thrown.
One thing I’m suprised Sakuya didn’t come with is a tea set of some sort, since I guess that’s one of the main things she does. Luckily, the cup and saucer from the Figma Morning After Aya Kagura works pretty well.
Simple back shot.
Unlike an awful lot of Figmas, Sakuya is actually capable of looking up, though not by a whole lot. Still better than “not at all”.
Interestingly, Sakuya is capable of wearing Figma Aya Shameimaru’s faces, though they fit on loosely. However, the shapes are different enough that Aya can’t wear Sakuya’s faces at all.
“Why don’t we clean that dirty mouth of yours.”
OBLIGATORY “SAKUYA WITH A CLOCK” PICTURE
I wonder if they’ll reveal the next Touhou Figma at the upcoming Wonfes.
