Quick Review: Good Smile Company Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji

Good Smile Company Nendoroid 148: Yuyuko Saigyouji
And once again bringing a quick review of another ghost girl, here is nendo Yuyuko! Courtesy of GreatToysOnline and, of course, some smooth talking by Onii-chan XD

As a full size nendo, the details are of course neat, the colors are as lovely as always I must say; the frilly parts were nicely done as well for something so puny XD An eye catcher from Yuyuko would be the petals on her outfit, and these are done in a really good paint job. While Yuyuko does have legs, due to the long skirt she’s wearing, it’s almost unnoticeable most of the time unless you decide to pose her in a flying manner.

(Remember when I used it back on Airi?) XD

Additionally, Yuyuko comes with two wisps and paired butterflies which have a base of their own that comes in two pieces since the other can plug have two plugged in, , and two more separate butterflies. While there are fans above, they’re already attached to Yuyuko’s hand and are two different hand pieces; this along with a left palm with a peg hole are Yuyuko’s only alternate hands; she does have extra shoulders so you can have the arms in a protruding manner.

Anyway, as a collector who’s easily contented, I’m pretty much happy with the purchase of Yuyuko and being my first nendo Touhou, I guess she’s good enough though I seriously doubt she’s the best one from the line. But if you are into nendos, then she’s a pretty good deal especially if you have Youmu as well (which I unfortunately do not have at the moment).
