As the maiden release from rookie figure brand First Class, the first Yuria 100-shiki figure to be mass produced, and the first figure to ship with this particular LED light-up base gimmick, I opted to make the purchase despite some initially questionable preview images at Amiami and elsewhere. While I was ready for the iffy sculpt and cast quality, I wasn’t expecting some rather more substantial deficiencies in the kit that makes this sadly one of the year’s most disappointing releases thus far. Read on for the unfortunate truth: Update: it turns out the packaging did contain a support intended to prop the kit up after all; I’ve revised the final score slightly as a result, and details can be found at the bottom of the review.
