A rare figure from Canvas 2 : Niji Iro no Sketch ( Canvas2 ～虹色のスケッチ～ ) which I bought from Fan Expo 2008 last week for $60. Expensive price tag but I like the series a lot and I rarely see this figure since it’s released long time ago. Canvas 2 is one of those series that I have watched multiple times already so getting this figure is totally worth it for me despite the price. Btw, check out my coverage of Fan Expo Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 ^^ if you haven’t done so.
I thought that another indoor photo shoots might be boring so Elis and I went for a walk at a park near where I live (actually, it’s a backyard of my house but she was not aware of that ^^) for outdoor photo shoots. This was my first outdoor photo shoot so I am pretty much a newbie ^^ but I think the results turned out ok and there are always rooms for improvements.
I had some difficulties attaching the figure to the base and after a while, it comes off by itself as you can see on below photo so she is somewhat leaning to the front. The base itself is nothing special and it’s just a plain round glossy base.
Her left bow is somewhat chipped on the edge. Click on the above picture to see the larger version or click here in order to view the chipped bow.
It’s white ^^
The paint on this figure is far from perfect especially on her hair. There are some spots left unpainted.
Overall quality of the figure is decent and not a lot of details, although, I like the school badge on her left arm. The thing that bugs me the most is the painting on her front hair and imperfect sculpt on her left bow. Other than those two, I like the figure since it’s from one of my favorite anime series (I never play the game unfortunately T.T) and triangle mouth is FTW. So if you like the series, this figure is highly recommended ^^
