Project details

Let’s remind ourselves of global censorship laws. Violence is fine while nudity is not. Off with their heads but certainly not off with their clothes. FREEing had impressed me with their recent 1/4 renditions of the Freezing characters so I was curious to see how one of their 1/8 scales would hold up.
The character wields a single-edged sword called Nova Blood, a weapon that will slice up the fabric of women’s clothing with ease. That’s probably the impression you’d get from the battles in the anime adaptation of Freezing if your interest waned after the first episode.
As Satellizer often removed her glasses prior to engaging battle, no such accessory was included with this figure. Her right eye is covered by a bandage instead, acting as token of war.

Quality wise there’s a few ups and downs. The battle stance is great and the Volt Weapon is reasonably well-made. The shredded outfit does its job and the sculpted legs and boots are both worthy of praise.
Then there’s the hair. It does flow nicely but one can sort of tell it’s not from any of the major manufacturers. This apply for most parts of the upper body as well, like the face and left hand. It’s really being nitpicky but that’s a few areas in which FREEing will have to improve.

This is by no means a bad figure. For a character that’s about to mess you up, Satellizer does keep her cool while doing so. The overall paint job was also fairly decent, I was unable to find any rough spots that would lead to criticism.

    I was surprised when FREEing announced this figure, since they had already shown off their big Sexy Version of Satellizer. Manufacturers don’t seem to chuck out two figures of the same character in rapid succession all that often. Unless that character is named Miku Hatsune, anyway. Maybe Tamaki Kousaka, too. I like Sateliizer but she’s not quite in the same league as those two when it comes to merchandising power.

    This looks like a really dynamic figure, and to be honest, all that movement is probably the reason I wasn’t more interested in this figure. Her hair and arm are blocking a lot of her face, and I like to be able to see a figure’s face. That leads to a sort of curious coincidence; I think Satellizer was patterned to some extent off of Saber, and I didn’t get GSC’s jumping Saber either because her face was partially obscured.

    I really do dig that sword, though, and I hope more makers besides just FREEing do more Freezing figures. I really did not like the anime at all but I can’t deny that pretty much every female character in it is hot.

    Bridget here by FREEing has all the makings of a figure I should like. Action pose, deadly weapons and sexy pose. But I can’t say I’m all that keen on her. I feel there’s too much going on that it’s difficult to see the character beneath. Maybe if her eye patch was on the other eye you’d be able to see her face and deduce was going on from there. As she stands at the moment I find her too confusing to look at and immediately identify what’s going on. Maybe she’s one of those figures that looks much better when you see her in person and can rotate around her.

    Still her damaged clothing looks kind of cool. Her outfit and battle damage reminds me a bit of Char Rhousemann from GSC Shuraki series of figures.

    The first red liquid shot is cool. Looks like a blood splatter.
