Panty and stocking, such an interesting anime. I saw the animation style, saw that it had some gainax influence and I knew it was going to be a good anime regardless of what happened. I was not disappointed. I am a fan of the power puff girls style animation.
Well, I can honestly say that this pair of figurines and for that matter all of the scaled figurine releases of Panty and Stocking have been disappointing. The first set released I loved their pose but too many things about the figurines stood out as odd, the wife and I decided we would wait it out as we had a good feeling there was going to be at least 1 more release. Queue the Alter releases. I did recently do the Panty release and we honestly did plan on doing a 2 in 1 review of them both, however now I am glad that we didn’t.
Bit of info about the figurine first of all I suppose. Alter made this one obviously as you can see that in our title and I’ve already mentioned it hehe. I do not normally mention this but it was sculpted by Yagyuu Toshiyuki whom did the Dizzy figurine which I love but we never bought, also he did our Asuka figurine, which…. dat ass….
So again, I have to mention that I was overall disappointed with this figurine. I’m sure that most of the reason is because of the hype I had with getting Stocking and actually completing our set. I can’t say that there is really all that much wrong with it in the terms of details but more just the design they used in the first place.
I suppose we can start from the top, keep in mind that most of this is just opinion as I have mentioned, I do not see many flaws in the moulding or painting and it does seem to look this way by design. Her face, it seems that all of the figurines for Panty and Stocking they messed up on the face. Not really sure how or why but all of them look odd.
Stockings hair in particular bugs me a lot. She basically has the same style of hair as Kuroneko but just… way way way more of it. The hair is just way to thick. Up near her head I swear it must be a good quarter of an inch thick. I do not like the way it tapers on the end either and it seems like the paint job on it is a little off… The way her wings just pop out of her hair seems lacking as well, like, the wings do not come out of her back, they fully come out of her hair…
Now this is odd and feel free to correct me all women out there… But this part bugs me the most. Dani came downstairs while I was on the PC and was like “STOCKING’S PACKING!” and showed me her panties… and … and the bulge is just… its way to big… I almost threw up in my mouth… that probably bugs me the most.
I’m not going to give this figurine a rating, I’ll let you guys decide yourselves how you feel about this. I just can’t help but feel bad because like, I dunno, I try not to give opinionated rankings and that is what this would be. Hopefully the wife takes some nice pics, however with the 4 figurines out there that I know of for Panty and Stocking scaled PVC? I would currently not recommend any of them. Save your money and get a new GSC fig… Thanks for reading guys here’s a random AMV that’s not of the same quality I normally put up hah!
