This week we are taking look at our newest addition to our family! He just came today! As you can tell I will be reviewing Kuroko Tetsuya from Kuroko no Basket, I was very excited to get Kuroko today for our review. 🙂
Kuroko no Basket is a super popular sports anime, so if you haven’t heard of it, I would be shocked. I personally enjoy my sports animes, but Kuroko holds a special place in my heart. I was super excited when I found out that Mega House was going to make figures from the series.
This figure, in my opinion, the best male Mega House figure I have ever seen. They did a really great job with him. I really could’t have asked for a better figure of him. They just did him right.
The movement of this figure was what really sold me on it. I feel like I could take him to a basketball court and he would just get up and run down the court.
They did a good job on his face, his eyes are well done. And I like how serious he looks. They just captured his expression perfectly.
His jersey is well done. All the lines are crisp and there is no bleeding from what I could see, though I did see that they are in fact coming out with a second version of Kuroko with his black jersey. But it is an exclusive that will only be available at the MegaHobby Expo in June. I think I like this version more, but that’s because he usually wears this jersey in the anime.
The base for this figure is well done. There are two pegs that hold him to it, one is plastic and the other is a taller metal one. It keeps him attached very firmly. I am not worried about him falling over in the slightest, even with his pose, though he may lean over time because of it. I do suggest keeping an eye on that if you get him.
I am happy with the detail in the base, it is simple but it really does look like a basketball court floor. It would maybe have been nice to have one of the lines in the base, but I am fine with it as is. I really love how they have their team, their number and their name on the base.
Even the basketball looks great! It is plain though, no brand on it. But I love the little bumps they put on it so it looks just like a real one.
My only beef with this figure is the hair seam, I feel like they could have done a much better job with it. I have seen nendoroids with less seam then this and they are 50% hair.
In the end, I feel that if you are a fan of Kuroko, then you should own this figure. It is easily the best figure of him out in the market right now, and truthfully I cannot see you getting a better one then this. I would love to hear who else got this figure and what you guys think of him.
I leave you with the first opening for the second season. It has my favourite serious face of Kuroko. Though truthfully Kuroko isn’t even my favourite from the series… I like Kagami, Aomine and Midorima more… lol
