Cutie of the month. ^o^
Starting the review on an action figure after covering two gashapon-type collectibles (Yotsuba & holstein from Kaiyodo's Capsule Q Fraulein Yotsuba & Monochrome Animals set and Megurine Luka & race car from Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Petit Racing Miku Set 2011 Ver.) consecutively.
Revoltech Queen's Blade Rebellion Sigui
Production company: Kaiyodo
Release date: Early April 2012
Price: 2,762 Yen (exclusive of tax).
Released in Early April 2012, this is Revoltech Queen's Blade Rebellion Inquisitor Sigui (異端審問官 シギィ). ^^ Even though she's technically a Revoltech action figure, but coming from the "Queen's Blade" series, her posability can probably be considered just a standard point as compared to her S&M mode "change" design and cast-off feature for all of her costume parts. ^^
Then again, as with the review on the previous figure from the series, Ymir, I don't want to get into trouble with Blogger so the two previously mentioned special features are not going to be shown in this review series.
I imagine 80 percent of the folks reading this posting have already closed the browser tab showing my blog at this point. XD
The figure itself can be seen clearly through the front window, right in the middle of the huge letter "Q".
Sigui is one of the character in "Queen's Blade Rebellion". I know that various merchandises based off characters from that series came out years before the TV anime, which was released in 2012. I have yet to watch that series, so my knowledge of the character is purely based off what I read from websites and product information. ^^ Thanks to something called the Internet (XD), there are video clips featuring Sigui that show off how she looks like in animation and her action in the world of "Queen's Blade Rebellion". I was thinking of embedding a video from Youtube featuring Sigui, but the content is just too inappropraite. ^^;
I used to think Melpha from the original "Queen's Blade" was a ridiculous character design with her so-called "Holy Poses", Sigui who seems to be of the same religion in that world is just as ridiculous if not worse. ^^;
Somehow that makes me want to watch the show sooner. XD
