Hmm looks like I”m about a month late with these pics but better late than never. FREEing’s rendition of mio, this time time based on her famous mmq scene ^_^
Before we move on, in case you need to remind yourself of the meme,
According to tsukiboard it’s been over a year since my last FREEing purchase. Lotsa Alter and GSC ^^;
Hadn’t been planning on getting more k-on figures (especially considering i’m not getting the whole alter set) but loved the scene and couldn’t pass this version up ^^;
Listed at 1/8 and she feels like a proper 1/8 (unlike VN02 ^^;)
Hate to sound like an alter fanboy (not that i’m not :P) but she feels like she’s missing a bit of that alter finish… nevertheless i think she turned out quite nice ^^
And jeez they made that skirt short!
Sorry about the black background… she’s blending in a bit much ^^;
Shoulda taken a pic of it but i love how in her packaging there’s a heart shaped support for her hands ^_^
Kinda mixed feelings on her expression. Sometimes i think it’s just right but other times I feel like it’s slightly off…?
Turned on highlight tone priority for this session though i’m not sure how much it helped ^^;
Now again I know she’s just a 1/8 from FREEing but still couldn’t help but compare the details on her outfit…
Though one thing mio brings to the table is shimapan :3
Think I messed with the white balance unnecessarily for these shots… ah well
And coming back to that skirt again…
Base is pretty vibrant so a word of caution if you’d prefer something more subdued.
Not sure if it’s the figure, me, or both, but just wasn’t finding much inspiration for my shots this time… only 20ish images today.
As far as the figure goes though I’d say that’s just a product of her sculpted to be viewed head on.
In case you were wondering how she stacks up to Alter’s release:
I’d say she fits in quite well ^^
If you prefer mio in mmq mode unfortunately your choices are pretty limited… the only other one i could find on tsukiboard was this banpresto release ^^; Luckily I think FREEing delivered a pretty faithful rendition so fans shouldn’t have any reservations picking her up ^^
