To Aru Kagaku no Railgun - Misaka Mikoto - 1/8 (Good Smile CompaTo Aru Kagaku no Railgun - Misaka Mikoto - 1/8 (Good Smile Compa

When this figure came up for pre-order I like the pose and the way it was made to resemble the anime character, so I ordered it without much hesitation.


Package

Since this figure is not too big, the box has modest dimensions as well. It has bolts of electrictity on a bluish background on the outside and inside and several images of the figure on the back and left side. There are 2 windows up front, 1 on top and 1 on the right side, so the figure is well visible. The box fits the figure, but as I said before I'm no box collector, so it doesn't really captivate me.

Sculpting and painting

This figure is made by GoodSmile Company, so quality is guaranteed here. Even though this figure is only 17 cm tall (without base) it is very well sculpted and has a great looking pose: Misaka holding a coin in her hand as if she's ready to activate her railgun. The coin itself even has some printing on both sides: the same image that's printed onto the base plate.

The sculpting of the hair strands looks a bit crude though. On the other hand it has nice shading, which also goes for the clothing. There is a tiny bit of rough spots between the fingers, but this is only noticeable when you look up close. The paint job is well done, as expected from GSC, with the only one small remark: the thin trimmings on the uniform are sometimes a tad off.

The figure comes with an extra left arm and an iron particle sword which is to be fitted with that arm.

Posing

Misaka has a nice pose and an accompanying serious look, very much like her. Her skirt is fluttering, revealing her characteristic tanpan. Because this is a fixed pose figure there is not much more to say, other then that it is quite energetic. I've seen lesser poses, so this is quite good.

Misaka does not go out without her tanpan...

Base

This is a round white plate representing her railgun coin (the coin has the same printing). Before I saw the correlation I wondered what "King Slot" would mean, but I guess it is also on the coin (although it is not visible). A silver base with raised printing would have been nicer though; it would make a better coin...

Enjoyment

I sort of liked Misaka in the Index/Railgun anime and I wanted to have a PVC figure of her, but earlier figures from other companies just didn't have the appeal. This one on the other hand does. Its lovely sculpting and fine paint work makes it a joy to watch. It is not too big, so it won't use up much space either. GSC continues to deliver high quality and this figure is no exception...

cute, but you'd better watch out... ;)

Shinjiro-StrikeThanks for this new review. :)

Painting 10/10?! Are you sure about this note?
Here I have a big doubt. The painting is far from perfect. It overflows a little here, it overflows a lot there.
Good Smile can do better (see BRS or Saber Lily).
This figure is however an excellent figure for fans of anime "To Aru ..."

You made pretty pictures anyway. ;)

I looked at figure a bit closer, and there there are some rough spots between the fingers. Also I found that some of the lines on her clothing could have been done a bit better, so a edited the review and adjusted the ratings a bit. Aside from these remarks I still find it a very nice looking figure.

You were luckier with the hair sculpting/painting than I was with the Misaka figure that I recieved, as mine had a poorly sculpted/ painted gap with the piece over her left eye and the rest of her hair.

Good review though.

I agree. This is a great pose. I think I would have liked to see her hair blowing to match the pose. It is a nice feature to have a second arm.
