My swimsuit Sakaki and mini S.I.C. Kamen Rider Blade arrived in the mail today. let's look at them.



Blade is a S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii which are smaller cheaper versions of bandai's ultra premium S.I.C. line. He's nicely detailed without looking too detailed as some of the larger S.I.C.'s can look.



I especially like the line on his back where his suits zipper would be. :D



He comes with his "Blay Rouzer" sword with and attachment with the cards fanned out (The cards represent special attacks) and extra holding hands.



I highly recommend him he's a nice figure especially for the price! (They cost about $14) Now i want to collect the rest of them good thing there so cheap! :)

Here he is with an american Kamen Rider Dragon Knight figure. Can you believe the price difference is only about 6 dollars?



Sakaki is a swimsuit version for some reason (I read somewhere that Azuma didn't want figures made because they would oversexualize his characters (Whoops!)) Anyways it's a very nice figure of her.



The only negative is that there is a visible seam at the top of her head. But it doesnt bother me.



She comes with a display stand witch is just a white rectangle. (It's in the first picture so you can see it.)



Here she is with a bunch of other swimsuit figures.



And here are they are with a figma and nendoroid petit so you can get an idea for there size



Overall I'm very happy with my two new figures. :)

Thank you very much for your review and pictures of the Sakaki figure! I've been debating on if I really want her for a while now, but honestly I'm still not sure. From your photos I at least have no question about the quality of the figure anymore. She looks great! I'm just not sure if I really want a figure of her in a swimsuit. I'd much rather her be in her school uniform, or even better, one of her in this outfit:
Nice and Casual ^_^

But it will probably never happen so I should probably just settle for this. And I do think it's pretty funny about Azuma's comment about figures for the series. I never heard that before. Hopefully his feelings about Yotsubato not being able to work as an anime will also eventually be made irrelevant. ^_^

I too would have preferred a uniform version. But swimsuit a version of Sakaki is good enough for me. I think figmas of the the hole cast would be best but thats probably never gonna happen.

I can understand Azuma concern that figures may oversexualize the Azumanga characters. After all, one of the more popular characters of the show (and my favorite Azumanga girl), Chiyo-chan, is just 10 years old when the show starts.

Of course, it would be cute to see a figure of Chiyo dressed as either a kitty (from episode 12 of the anime) or a penguin.

I don't want my characters to be oversexualized, let's make swimsuit versions! XD LoL :)
Cute face, but I side with everyone here. Uniform version would have brought much more happiness. If they ever made it, I might buy Chiyo-chan, Osaka and Sakaki.
