Nendoroid Mio & Yui review

A very belated review of the Mio and Yui Nendoroids.

First, Mio.
Nendoroid Mio face
She arrived at the beginning of February.

Nendoroid Mio blazer
Naturally, she’s wearing the 桜高 winter uniform.

Nendoroid Mio skirt
The difference in skirt colors for the school uniform across dolls and figures amuses me a little. The Nendoroid skirts are clearly light blue (although this photo makes them look slightly grey). The Azone fabric skirts are without a doubt completely grey. I’m partial to the plaid skirt used in the original manga/4coma, anyway XD

Nendoroid Mio hair (back)
Mio’s hair actually has highlights/halo effect painted on it, which almost gives the effect of the paint having faded rather than the shiny anime-style XD;

Nendoroid Mio sans bangs
Nendoroids have three head parts: bangs, face/neck and hair. This is Mio without her bangs.

Some of the hands can be removed from the arms, like this.

Something I noticed when posing them together… the stands are different!

Mio’s has a much higher back:

than Yui’s:

(together, for comparison:)

Strangely enough, Yui’s stand suits Mio better because her stand interfered with her long hair. But overall Mio’s stand is more stable and I like it better. It seems like every Nendoroid I’ve bought has a different style stand… Konata’s is similar to Miku!Kagami, but they have some noticeable differences. I applaud GS for trying to constantly improve their stands, and think they’ve nearly reached a perfect setup. I look forward to seeing how they evolve in the future. (With my first Nendoroid, Kona, I didn’t think much about the stands because her long hair helped her balance enough that she didn’t need one XD;)
