Today I am back with another review I thoroughly enjoyed making, and that is of my beloved gae, Katsuki Yuri nendoroid!

Unlike my review of the You nendoroid that I did before, I was not able to take pictures of the box he came in because I was way too excited. XD He was, again, a pre-order from TOM last March in the same order as You. So without further ado, let's get started!

BOX

At first glance, the box looks very ordinary. Blue and white color scheme, images of the nendo in various poses, until I noticed something when I held it against the light.

Snowflakes that are only visible when the light hits them! They really add a nice, beautiful touch to something that would otherwise be very ordinary. I mean, I love the modernized nendo boxes because they're sleek and stylish on their own (as opposed to the old packaging which had a lot going on), but I really appreciate adding a little flair like this that personalizes the box and fits it to the character.

CONTENTS

Right out of the box, standard blister packaging. Yuri is very protected! :D

When I took everything out of the blister and laid them out, I sort of tried to emulate the positioning of his various parts the way they were positioned in the blister. I kind of failed with the extra leg because I accidentally bumped into the paper and wobbled them around. X'D I also switched to white because Yuri is almost all black and it would have been hard to see everything clearly against a black background.


Parts

  • Main body
  • Bangs down hairplate (for outside the rink)
  • Bangs pulled back hairplate (for inside the rink)
  • Three faceplates (default smiling, calm sexy hot mama, embarrassed/shy/so cute I want to eat him up)
  • Glasses
  • Hand parts - holding cellphone / holding chopsticks / holding sexy pork cutlet katsudon bowl, two close fists, two open fists
  • Arm parts- three folded, three straight
  • Extra folded leg part

Switching back to black background (say that out loud ten times really fast lol), Yuri of course also came with the standard nendoroid stand, an extra neck joint, and an instruction sheet (which I honestly never check X'D).

REVIEW

Overall, I am so in love with this nendoroid. And not just because he is my beloved and number one favorite character ever, but also because the figure is genuinely well made. I may be hallucinating or maybe because I don't own too many other nendos (though I do own quite a few), but he is the best quality out of everyone I own so far. Pegs and holes fit together like they're very much made for each other, not too tight nor too loose either. And he is actually the easiest nendo I own to attach to the stand. Others such as the Mumei nendoroid and even the You nendoroid just don't fit right into the stand (I think the pegs on their backs are too small, especially with Mumei's... air pressure container machine thing. I don't remember what it's called exactly since it's been a while since I watched Koutetsujou no Kabaneri and I didn't exactly like it LOL).

I feel like GSC/OR really made this little nendo so special. I just love all the little touches they did for him. For example, his extra hairplate has a protection for the pegs.

None of my other nendoroids have this for their extra hairplates, so this is a nice touch.

One thing I will be picky about though: there is certainly a learning curve trying to put his glasses on. Much like the You nendoroid, it's a bit hard (and downright scary) to maneuver the glasses to go on the face without falling off when you put on the front hair piece, so I had to try a couple of times to really get it in there.

I wish they could have done what they did with Homura's nendoroid, actually. But I guess it isn't possible because of the hairstyle.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4422/36371283242_56a0141a72.jpg

As you can see here, the length of the handles (I wear glasses and don't know the right terminology for these I am a failure) of the glasses for Homura (the red one) and Yuri (the blue one) is different- Yuri's is longer.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4357/36495847816_9f2bf2b46b.jpg

The reason for that is because Homura's hair has little grooves inside that fit the handles of her glasses, so that it snaps right onto the hair and won't fall off when you change her faceplates.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4379/35704710504_fd933260cb.jpg

Here is a side by side comparison. And here we can also see clearly that Yuri's bangs are too short to do the Homura method. Dangit. X'D

It isn't so much of a bother though, it just takes practice! :D

Edit: As pointed out by KOUGADEMON, apparently I put the glasses on wrong. He does have similar grooves to Homura's, only they're on the outside part of his hair. I can't believe I didn't notice this. X'D

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4359/36539622655_1f6da9491a.jpg

Another thing that I noticed is his hand parts where he is holding items. While this is certainly not unique to him (Gakupo's hand part holding his fan is also attached to the hand, for example), I just found it interesting that GSC decided to make hand parts that has the items attached to them rather than going down the Homura route (these are her hands and weapons) and putting holes into the hands and pegs on the items to attach to. I am guessing this is because Yuri's items are far too small and would easily get lost if they're not attached to the hand. Which perplexes me because they didn't do this for Genos' notepad and pen, and those are smaller than these items. But I digress. Both methods are good, though I prefer the way they tackled Yuri's hand parts better. It's easier to just pop a hand into the arm peg.

PHOTOSHOOT TIME!

Now for the fun part! Yuri in all his glory! You can tell I had a lot of fun shooting these pictures. X'D

Time for some standard poses! These were all the ones on the box and I imitated them to the best of my ability. :D

FandomTrash (Hace 2 meses) #24693986I chose SAL shipping so I'm still waiting for him + Akaashi. ;-;
Great review, btw! :D
(the name you're looking for instead of handles would be temples btw for the glasses)

Ahhhh I hope they get there soon ;; Waiting is pain. ;; But I guess it's fine since Victor isn't even released yet? X'D

And thanks! I found out the name of those things from another user's comment below. X'D You'd think I know what they're called since I've been wearing glasses since I was like 10 or 11 but nope. X'D

Kougademon (Hace 2 meses) #24677956I have him too since last week and I felt the glasses part strange since I had no problem with putting them on, and thought something should be off, then I saw the bangs on your pictures out of the glasses xD
Maybe consider a 10/10 for him since this problem solved? :D


YES OMG. HE IS DEFINITELY A 10/10. I cant believe i made this mistake. Thanks for pointing it out X'D

Kougademon (Hace 2 meses) #24677226Uhm, but why did you put the glasses at the inside of his hair? There are rails at the outside of Yuri's bangs (the hair down) where you can put the glasses and it doesn't fall even during the change of faceplates.
Yours and how it is supposed to be
