Review: [Sega] Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya Extra Figure Asakura Ryoko

Figure Information
Manufacturer: Sega
Origin Series: Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
Scale: Non-scale
Height: Approximately 18cm tall
Original Price: 1,250 Yen

Figure Box:

While prize figure boxes don't really appeal to me that much as more often than not, their boxes are down right boring and unattractive, only the figure seen in the window actually gives them their pull factor, this one actually has a nice design and it's the same with Haruhi's box, it's a vibrant blue with snow flakes in its design kinda appealing to me for some reason I do not have any idea of. XD Anyway, you might be wondering why I didn't put Melancholy in the info, well, since the box says so and this Ryoko is indeed the one we saw on the movie, just make her series the movie then.

Figure Details:

Well, let's see, as we all know, Prize figures aren't that great in details but sometimes, they do pack some nice details with them. So what of Ryoko's case? Well, I guess pretty average, her hair is nicely done, the layers and all I like it though the edges could've used more sharpness. Hey, I'm asking too much? well, Sega does pull off quite some awesome prize figures at times and I kinda regard them as the best in Prize Figures, so, yeah, a little high expectations sometimes XD

Her outfit is pretty average as well, only really some more details I would've wanted is for the frilly part near her shoulders so it would actually look better all in all, but yeah, aside from that, the other parts are just fine and her apron is quite cute too if you ask me. XD Well, the actual major letdown here would be the food in the pot, well... it just looks too blocky or something, and they could've used more color to put at that XD

Her base is identical to sega's common bases for most of their prize figures, a white circle but this time, Ryoko comes with prints of multicolored silhouettes of Haruhi. Well, not pretty attactive or anything, but it's not really my thing to hit on details due to their bases. So yeah, it's fine as it it, at least, it's not ridiculously boring and a space eater at the same time.


Going to the appeal, well, I have to say, this is one of the few Ryokos where she's actually very cute and nice looking and IMO, this is also one of the few figures where I actually wasn't able to take a yandere shot as she's just giving a downright friendly appeal like she initially did in the movie.

And despite the lack of details, her pull factor would be on her charming look, but yeah, even her charming look would only be that charming in selected angles and her eye direction isn't anything good enough for you to actually enjoy it in many ways given a 360 degree rotation unlike some figures who are given their standing pose.

Final Thoughts:

Well, some would probably pass on her because of the fact that she's a prize figure, but she's pretty fine but not something I would really recommend, but for a Ryoko fag, definitely a good piece and something a little fresh where you actually don't see her combat knife anywhere XD And as we all know, prize figures are cheap, so, you actually don't lose big time given her lack of details since you are getting what you actually paid for. XD

Rating (Out of 10)
Figure Details 7.5
Price 10
