Today’s review is of this figure – the one and only sample of it that has arrived!

It’s Max Factory’s:

1/7th Scale Yui Hirasawa!

The lovable guitarist from Sakura High’s light music club in the popular anime ‘K-ON!’. She is wearing the Santa outfit that she wore in episode 7 of the first season, ‘Christmas!’.

003

This is how she looks from the back!

As with all the previous 1/7th scale K-ON figures from Max Factory, the quality is absolutely wonderful! It’s definitely a figure that Yui fans will buy with no regrets whatsoever! Just look at those lovely long legs and bare feet…

004

The Santa hat can be removed!

This quality really looks just as good as the master figure did… it’s incredible… just look at that adorable smile! It suits Yui so well! What a wonderful world we live in that you can keep such a wonderful smile by your side whenever you like!

That may be so, but…!
005

The whole Santa outfit can be removed!

To reveal her swimsuit!!

The outfit is made of soft plastic that comes off very easily, and the balance of the figure is kept wonderfully both with and without the Santa outfit! It’s really incredible! Batayan was the head of production for this one – and got the fitting of the Santa outfit down perfectly!

008

This is how she looks from the back now!

A school swimsuit in all its glory! It becomes the perfect figure for the Summer!

006

The swimsuit has that nice…

007

…tight ‘just-fit’ feeling to it!

You can even make out her belly button!

The detail on the swimsuit really is incredible – from the glossy shine down to the creases in the material – it’s all there! It really looks just like a real swimsuit – the sculptor’s are just too good at their work!
