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!

009

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!

1/7th Scale Yui Hirasawa

Yesterday I took a look at Max Factory’s Big O model and learned just how it was to make non-cute things look cute…

001

Today’s product is also from Max Factory!

In fact I have yet another Max Factory figure to look at, but that will be for tomorrow… and it’s not a figma by the way! figma are normally all introduced on the figma blog instead of here so I only look at them on rare occasions.


002

But anyway, today we’ll be taking a look at:

1/7 Scale Yui Hirasawa!
 
 
Yui is the clumsy guitarist from the ever-popular anime K-ON!… which also has a movie version coming up!

This is the Santa outfit she worse in episode 7 of season 1!


003

This is how she looks from the back!

The line from her thighs up to her knees is absolutely beautiful!! It’s like she is wearing a one-piece dress with bare feet… not something you see very often.


004

A huge smile beaming across her face!

A smile like this really suits Yui the best! Great work Max Factory – that expression is perfect!!


005

The nice baggy Santa outfit!

While most of the outfit and the sleeves are baggy, the area from the waist to the hips fits just right. Plus look at those delicious soft thighs!!


006

She shoulders also stick out the top!

You can also see Yui-chan has a really sexy collar bone!!  :O

This Santa outfit is so amazing… I almost feel like I should get down on my knees and bow down to it!! It has such a unique balance as to what skin it shows and what it doesn’t!
007

But there is more to this figure… my true love for it…

The Santa outfit casts-off into a school swimsuit!

This is truly a breakthrough! A single figure of Yui-chan with two completely different looks that are both absolutely stunning! You could even display her in the swimsuit during Summer and the Santa outfit for Winter – match her to the seasons! 😛


008

This is how she looks from the back!

You might think that the balance of the figure would be thrown off by taking off her Santa outfit… but as you can see that’s not the case at all!


009

Obviously the Santa hat can also be removed!

The hair beneath the hat has a nice light and airy feeling and gives a nice dynamic feeling to her – I particularly like the way the hair looks at the back near her neck!

010

Healthy looking shoulder blades!

011

The glossy look of the swimsuit is beautiful!

Pay attention to the smaller details – you can just see the outline of her belly button… and the creases around her thighs are beautifully detailed.

She looks great in both the Santa suit and the swimsuit!
002

It’s Max Factory’s…

Oooh! She’s finally here!

Could you please leave her on my desk?

001

What did you do to Giita!?

It looks like there is some mold growing on it… ^^;
 
 
But anyway, today we’ll be playing with this cutie!

002

Nendoroid Ui Hirasawa!

Ui is the reliable younger sister of Yui from the anime ‘K-ON!’ – she has great grades at school and always helps out with all the housework!

She is wearing her lovely middle-school uniform!!
She looks so adorable!!

003

This is how she looks from behind!

Her ponytail is fitted with a Nendoroid joint which lets it move around quite nicely! The ribbon in her hair can also be removed.

She uses the same kind of stand that all the previous K-ON! Nendoroids have used, which lets her stand directly on the floor instead of on the stand itself.

004

A bright smile as if she has no worries in the world!

Just looking at it gives me the energy to get through the hardest of days!!

She also comes with bent arms!

The hands can be removed from the arms, so you can put these hands on the straight arms too if you prefer them.

005

She comes with this lovely Dizzy Face!

This face can be used for so many things!You can obviously also give it to some other Nendoroids to try on!

006

Ui also comes with…

Her Sakuragaoka high school uniform!

As well as her school bag to carry with her! It all looks absolutely gorgeous!

007

Anyone who has the Yui Nendoroid as well…

Can recreate the scene where Ui disguised herself as Yui in season one!

The reason this picture looks a little weird is of course because this is actually Ui just with Yui’s hair! The blue ribbon for the upperclassman is also included!

008

“Ui…. I want an ice lolly!”
 
You can even act out this scene!! (*゚∀゚)=3

The Sakuragaoka uniform makes displaying the characters together look really nice!

009

Let’s try the dizzy face on another Nendoroid!

I’m fairly confident that if you like these kind of overexaggerated faces then this is one that will look great on any Nendoroid! The expression actually resembles the Hachune expression on the snowman a little. ^^;

010

Nendoroid number 135!

Nendoroid Ui Hirasawa!
