Senran Kagura – Yozakura – Swimsuit Ver. (Hobby Stock, Wing) – Pre-order Info and Impressions
Making a splash in her swimsuit, the Senran Kagura series staple Yozakura is here! This figure is manufactured by Hobby Stock and produced by Wing.
Yozakura is a 1/6 scale figure and stands around 22cm tall. She includes an alternate body part to reveal her “damaged” state – in other words, to let her boobs out.
This one caught me by surprise! Senran Kagura tends to mostly put out figures of Yumi (who is overwhelmingly popular), so seeing a Yozakura is kinda neat. She’s not my favourite shinobi, but I do have a soft spot for her because of her badass Big O style gauntlets.
In regards to the figure itself, the prototype photos look pretty promising. Although I’ve never heard of Hobby Stock (who seem to have made only a handful of figures so far) their past work looks quite solid. Wing is more of a known quality, and they have a good rep as far as I can tell.
I don’t think this figure is a must have for me, but it does look really nice overall. I like the dynamic pose and expressive face. The price is perhaps a bit high for what’s on offer, but it does include the extra cast-off torso. It’s always nice to have that cast off option. Perhaps if I could pick it up cheaper later on, I’d consider it.
Funnily enough, Yozakura seems to be the first of two currently announced Senran Kagura figures from Hobby Stock – and the other is, of course, Yumi. I’m interested to see how that one turns out.
