Episode 2 has arrived! They say better late than never, right? We start off with a more in-depth look at the Mascot Naming Contest then transition to S.H.Figuarts Sailor Moon, Maou’s huge horns, and the “anatomical plausibility vs how-much-we-care” ratio of Arcadia’s Sonico.

Question for you. Since it seemed to be a recurring subject of discussion in this episode, I'd like to know where you all stand on this one.

When considering a figure purchase, how much does the anatomy play into your decision? If something is aesthetically pleasing, yet physically impossible, do you shy away from the item or welcome it as the sculptor expressing their artistic license?

ZeroParadigmVor 7 Jahren#1509208I think I'm picking up what you're putting down haha I hope you don't mind if I use that metaphor, "large stats", in the future. By that logic, I'd say Maou has probably hit the level cap.

haha! no prob! XD And yes, Maou hits the cap..XD I would buy her though if she has a figma version (like Sonico) cause they tend to look a bit safer when in figma version (or maybe I'll go with her nendo). =3

mintbunnyVor 7 Jahren#1508230I will pass on figures that are in a pose that I personally am uncomfortable looking at. I've wanted some really sexy ladies, but if their pose makes me feel weird I won't get them unfortunately.
Instantly thought of ITEM #116962
While it is sexy, and others might like it, for me I can't help but think it looks incredibly uncomfortable/awkward.

romaxVor 7 Jahren#1508252For me it wouldn't really matter as long as it is faithful to the original drawing of the character in the anime/manga/game. But one exception maybe is those women with overly large stats (it's what I call them XD) *cough*Sonico*cough* that seem to make the figure a bit ero-much? I think you know what I mean..XD

It really depends on how "realistic" the art style is. I'm more willing to accept weird poses and whatnot if they're something like those QuesQ Ueda Hajime sculpts, but if something is patently ridiculous it does turn me off. At the end of the day a figure either speaks to you or it doesn't...every collector experiences this and it's different for everyone. And good thing it is otherwise this would be a real boring hobby.
