Sword Art Online SAO II Sinon Phantom Bullet - Taito Prize Figure
















When I preordered this from Latendo the promotional pic shown at standing 1/8 scale figure of Sinon however the actual product came completely different. I was kind of disappointed at first however there were some comforts to know the product came in the part like the 14cm Asada Shino Sinon Phantom Bullet PVC pre-painted figure, the sniper rifle and a diorama wall. Put them together and you will see Sinon sitting on a wall, both arms holding her sniper rifle, with that serious facial expression as she's pissed. Ok... Make peace not make piss ^_^ (A phase I recent learned from a friend).  

The fact that the parts ain't attached permanently gave it lots of flexibilities. Sinon figure is free to sit anywhere as long as she's able to balance. Her prized PCM Utima Ratio Hecate II, from boss drop from playing 'Gun Gale Online' GGO, can be used on other figurines of similar scale as accessory. It should be a good weapon for 1/144 Gundam or even Figma. The most versatile part is the diorama wall which I would use it as a prop in my future blog posts.

It usually is a bit disappointing when you expect one thing and then get something a different.

I think that the figure overall is still a nice one and I actually like her sitting.

i don’t know all the circumstances, but pre-ordered figures are always a risky bet, either these are from renowned brands or not... you’re trusting on pictures from a prototype, not the actual product and you could have nice surprises or not so nice ones...

the figure itself is pretty fine in my opinion, nicely detailed everywhere and it has very good finishes !!!... i would be disappointed only if the cost of the pre-order is high and the figure doesn’t seem to fulfill my expectations based on such price... otherwise, i wouldn’t mind... =)

Indeed, there's a risk in PO and the advantage of PO is that the price are more secured. Lucky thing the figure was not too disappointing.

Recently, I'm caught in situations of PO and not PO. Such is not easy to judge from just pics. Guess we just need to make do with it and hope all good and at the same time be mentally prepared. In this scenario, I find the figure desirable when unboxed. The accessories very useful for my future posting.
