Dark Elf -Lineage II-
Posted by meronpan on January 28, 2009
Time for a review of an older figure… Not exactly the review I’d hoped for for NC Japan’s Dark Elf but it’ll have to do for now. (no nudity but I suppose nsfw due to the revealing nature of her outfit? meh, ‘course in that case I should put nsfw warnings on all the pantsu shots… hmmm actually that makes sense ^^;;)
Trying out the white satin… left a bit to be desired. Well, actually in the above pic I didn’t mind it so much… some of the later shots… err well you’ll see. On with the review!
Dark Elf was released… gads, well over a year ago – May, 2007 with a rerelease in April 2008. It was a limited run and I was lucky to snag mine from Tokyo Hunter last June.
She comes as pictured, her mantle castoffable and her sword blades attach to a handle that’s permanently attached to her hand.
Her pose and face are probably what did me in. At the time I was just getting my collection started… played with fire and got burned :P
mmm just look at those eyes, love ’em. ack! no, not danny’s definition of eyes! (though those are nice too ^^;)
You is liking elves?
…I think it really is the nice work on her face that makes this figure for me. The detail on the armor is nice, but not jaw dropping.
Something about the paintwork just seems a bit… rough? From a distance it looks pretty good, but up close… I dunno, feels like it’s lacking something ^^;
According to the Good Smile page she wields the “Sword of Miracles”… never played Lineage II… is that a good weapon? ^^;
Definitely follows the RPG traditions… females armor ratings are invesely proportional to the amount of skin covered ^^;
*sigh* there’s that crease in the fabric i was talking about -_- guess i could’ve photoshop’d it out, but that’s not a very good long term solution.
A guess a little break from the usual moe every now and then isn’t so bad.
Despite the effort put into the human mage base, I actually prefer the simple logo of the dark elf base.
Taking a look at the cast off mantle and sword blades removed…
Has she put you under her spell? Or perhaps you rolled a 20 on your saving throw? :P
Not quite a full party… ^^;
Yet another recurring theme… food in hand!
The dark elf prefers… ichigo gyuunyuu!
Worth the original price? Probably. The premium for obtaining a limited release from a third party? ehhh probably not unless you’re a lineage fan. ^^;
foo-bar-baz gave this release a full 5 stars! He obtained his during the original run, so I wonder if it’s a difference in the runs or my photography abilities that makes his look so much better. Possibly a bit of the former and a lot of the latter ^^;;
