1/7 Yoko ~ Enterbrain

Yoko from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, made by Enterbrain. This one is the younger Yoko version (approx 14 years old they say.. but no 14 years old have this kind of body O_O). This figurine is 1/7 scale, but actually she’s closer to 1/6, her height is 27cm (10.63″) from hair to feet, or 34cm (13.38″) from the tip of the sniper to her feet, she is HUGE!

I didn’t expect that this figurine will be this good, since I don’t really trust Enterbrain quality, but I’m happy that she’s done beautifully. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the first time I put more than 30 images for 1 figurine, so enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

The sculpt of this figurine is top notch, really good, sexy, and the most important part is that she still looks exactly the same as the anime version.

The paintwork is allright, not perfect but acceptable (barely!), except her hair. Her hair is too plain, can use several more shade layers, and use non glossy paint.

another thing to complain is her yellow hair sticks. They should be stiff and non bendable, the sticks in this figurine look like a yellow ribbon instead..

Zoomed view, showing her voluptuous body, so so sexy~ look at the detail of the sculpt (not the paintwork..)


camel toe!~

I like the detail they put in the boots. look at the zipper, it’s perfect

Her thighhigh is perfectly done, and perfect zettai ryouiki too ๐Ÿ™‚

The paint work in her left side is not as good as the other parts, you can still barely see the seamlines.

This figurine has become one of my Favorite figurine now (a little bit biased tho, since I like yoko hehehe..), Not sure if the version made by Sol International Yoko can beat this yoko ๐Ÿ™‚

a MUST buy for Yoko fans ๐Ÿ˜€ (good luck finding one tho, HLJ, PA all out of stock)

  1. Thankfully only watched the first four eps of the anime so I’m spared from her clutches. Being exposed to 14 yr olds built like this for an extended period of time might prove to be too damaging for someone old at heart like me ^^;

    But excellent sculpt indeed, the boots are really something for this figure. I quite like the metal studs on the belt too. For her size, the price would seem reasonable, though yeah the paint job is barely acceptable as you said. Strangely, I kind of like the gun’s strap ^^; Does the gun come separate from the figure or is it pre-attached?

  2. @Dancing Queen: yeah, she looks great ๐Ÿ˜€ a lot better than I expected ๐Ÿ™‚

    @shino: you need to continue to watch the anime ๐Ÿ˜€ don’t let eps 4 make you drop this anime. eps 4 was directed by guest art director that got complained from 2chan and pushed the co founder of gainax to resign (eps 4 art is bad @_@).

    forgot to mention about her sniper, it is detachable.

  3. I’m still waiting for the R1 DVD’s to come out so in the meantime, I will pass.
    I’ve been a regular reader on ur blog so u don’t mind if I start becoming a regular participate instead? xD

  4. @yamcha: hehe can’t be helped, she wears skimpy outfit by default heh.

    @optic: I think ADV R1 gurren’s has been out already, are you waiting for bandai’s version? Thanks for reading and participating ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I might plan on getting her. It seems nice. I do agree, her hair is a bit plain and not very detailed. Still, the quality I say is pretty good. Going to look for it now…

    Yep. the Bandai’s version. According to Rightstuf.com catalogue, the first volume containing the first 9 eps. will be out on 8/07/08. I heard they are releasing the sub version first due to popular demand and then after when they finish releasing the sub version, they will release a dub later on. I might wait for the dub including sub to come out in this case.

  8. Nice Pics!

    …see, now that is some DELICOUS Yoko undercleavage. Good lord.

    I like the pictures, by the way. Very clean shot lines against the white background. Is that a natural state for your picture or was there post-processing done before posting? Either case, that’s some very nice work, there.

  10. @len-vesper: yeah, the only post-processing for the photos are auto contrast (no auto level! it will destroy the image D:) , the white backgrounds are white already, I made crappy tutorial last year on how to do white bg photos (crappy tutorial tho hehe)

  11. Ron did you put her sniper in by force? Because I am afraid of bending her fingers to the point of them snapping, I left the gun out of her hands. One of the bipods broke off anyway, was loose and I somehow helped it without knowing heh.

  12. Eh I can? Lol, which parts since I am not going to be breaking the whole damn thing by way of brute force, which I have too much of if not careful.

  13. @panther: yeah you can heh, you can split the parts where the straps attach to.

    @blueplains: yeah, agree ๐Ÿ˜€ she’s very lovely

  14. Dude, I can’t get my gun to split into 3 parts!

    Everytime I try to pull them apart it feels like they are about to snap… :'(

    Got any pics of them in their 3 piece state so that I can see it for myself?

    Cheers!

  15. I had the exact same problem problem trying to separate the gun parts. I was able to get the barrel off by pulling on both ends of the gun with all my might. I could see on the peg that there was residue of either glue or paint that was holding it in. I wasn’t so lucky with removing the stock, it snapped right off after I put it in a machine shop vice and pulled as hard as I could. Ended up having to super glue it and the strap on after I slid the gun into her hands. Looks ok, but I guess I’ll never be able to put her back into the original packing without breaking the stock back off.

  16. I’m in Japan at the moment, so I can’t show how to split the guns. I’ll check it out when I come back home next month ^^;

  17. Aha! I thought that was the case, thanks a bunch dude for uploading this picture. I’m gonna give it a try later when I feel the urge to break something since it felt like the gun was superglued together on mine.

  18. I am needing 3 Ron Johnson yard signs. One for me and the ohetrs for my neighbors. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for running against Russ Feingold! We can do this.Mary Beth Arnold2517 Ryeland StreetMadison, WI 53711
