When this figure was unveiled at Comiket 70 a year ago and subsequently offered for preorder in April I was pretty psyched; an ero-ero kimono-clad katana-wielding girl in an attractive pose? Sign me up! When the kit arrived in the mail yesterday evneing it soon became apparent that Solid Theater’s production quality failed to live up to the kit’s delicious design, however; to what extent this failure was manifest is fully evident below:

Heisei Democracy Figure Review: Solid Theater's original [ERO] Kimono no Onna no Ko Isuzu Tsumugi (Hobby Stock ver.) PVC

Something, or many things, went terribly, horribly wrong in the manufacture of this figure. I respect the work of both the character designer and the sculptor, and the prerelease prototypes of the kit all looked good – there are obviously no serious defects in either design or sculpt. The blame for the mass of deficiencies in this kit thus lies squarely at the feet of Solid Theater and their abysmal production quality.

Where to start. The gross patch of glue on the left side of the head behind the flower? The tragically miscolored chest? The shoddy paint job on the trim? The waxy pallor of the (unshaded) skin? The offset eyes? The black mouth? The rough seam edges visible at the chest and under the legs? AARGH!!!

What realy gets to me most is that this is a quality kit with a lot of potential, and they went and blew it with this absolute crap of a finishing job. It may be due to the fact that this is the Hobby Stock limited version and not the main release (I should stress that – this is not the main release version of the kit), but even so the shit production quality makes me weep. I could conceivably do better with my own meager painting skills, and I just might try… I ordered the regular version of the kit as well for reasons I no longer clearly comprehend, and a review of that should becoming soon too. I pray it does not share the defects of the HS version.

Overall Score: 3/10

+ original design
+ original sculpt

o average ero

– rough casting leaves visibly ragged edges, seams
– atrocious paint job: poor attention to detail, bad skin tone, no shading
– permanent glue residue and other defects left over from shoddy production
