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.
