Figure Review: Kasumi Special (Sega Prize)
I just bought myself a Dead or Alive Extra Figure: Kasumi Special feat. Yamashita Shunya figure by Sega. This was originally a UFO catcher/claw machine prize, but I bought it in a local toy shop last weekend.
While this figure features Kasumi in one of her alternate costumes, another version of the figure, featuring Kasumi in her signature blue and white costume, was also produced.
I’m not a fan of Dead or Alive at all; I actually hate the games, but I still think the girls are pretty. This figure is really nice for a “prize” figure, so I just went ahead and bought it.
Most of the other prize figures I’ve seen usually have poorly-made faces, but as you can see above, this figure’s face is quite pretty. Her having a nice face was part of the reason why I wanted to buy her in the first place.
The DoA girls were never skinny or muscular, but Shunya Yamashita’s touch can easily be seen in this figure’s curves.
The only problems with this figure are the visible seams here and there (along her underarm/sideboob in the photo above), but the overall quality and detailing of the figure balances that out.
I’m not one to complain though; a figure like this is really good for a UFO catcher prize, especially if you live in a country where UFO catchers have ugly/cheap-looking stuffed toys as prizes like I do.
