My newest arrival- X-Plus’ sofubi Gigantic Series Super Sonico! I didn’t jump to buy this figure when she first came out, mainly because I felt the proportions were off. (More on that later.) But I had an opportunity to pick up an inexpensive damaged box one from Yahoo!Japan Auctions recently, and went ahead with the purchase.
The stand is much heavier than the figure, which makes for a nice, sturdy display. It also rotates, which amused me far more than it should have. ^^;
Since the figure is hollow soft vinyl, she’s very light and manageable despite the gigantic size. X-Plus also cast her bikini top from the same soft vinyl. As far as accessories, she carries a little pita sandwich, and her iconic guitar necklace can also be removed if you want.
A lot of reviewers mentioned that they had difficulty removing her head for castoff, but I didn’t experience that. The previous owner probably removed and cleaned up the neck glue during the time they had her.
She looks better without the top, but I skipped those photos to keep this SFW. There are plenty of topless photos from other users at the MFC item entry if you wanted to get a look.
A Closer Look
I put Yamato Sonico’s babydoll on her, just to see how it would fit. It looks pretty cute, don’t you think?
Displayed in a place of honor! She even towers over the big Orchid Seed figures.
