Yeah, I know I've been gone for too long and it's like as if this blog is half-dead. Well, that's because I've been busy these days with my works and stuff and I don't have to post anything on this blog. Right now, I'm currently active on Facebook 'cause I mostly update my status there so if you guys wanna add me, you can click on the link below:-

Now back to the topic. It's been for a long, loooo~ng time since I made a figure reviews like HOT TOYS and Medicom figures. It's been for like, a year now... I think. Now that I'm back on collecting more toys, it's time for me to make a review of it. It's my main hobby after all. :)
So today, I want to introduce you to my new and latest toy collection which I bought 2 days ago...
Well, not exactly a toy. More like a fashion doll instead, just like those HOT TOYS or Medicom figures. And yep, it's from the famous animé for otaku fans; Kuroshitsuji.
At first, when I see the picture of the doll, I was like, "Hmm... this looks nice. But I don't think gonna buy this one." because that time, I wasn't really focusing on Kuroshitsuji. But when I heard that AZONE is making a VERY LIMITED UNITS of him, I was like, "WHAT?! No way! Limited units?! Dammit, I need to get this one before it's too late!" and so I asked my friend to pre-order it for me and when I finally picked up the doll, I was like, "Phew~... Luckily I pre-order the doll before it got sold out, or else I would regret it for not having this doll..."
Tell you the truth, I like buying something that's "Limited", "Rare" and/or "Unique". I don't like buying something that's not from one of these 3 categories. Why? Because I like buying rare stuff, like this Kuroshitsuji doll. I tell you, if I find something rare or unique, I TOTALLY gonna buy that stuff no matter what.
Anyways, back to the topic (again). The Sebastian Michaelis doll was pretty nice but some people complaining about his face, saying that "it's a bit off" or "looks weird". Well, I find it nothing.
Looks pretty normal to me, except that his face does shows a bit of... 'rape' face. I mean, he's got a smile on his face and a pretty eyes. Yeah, I said that. He got a "pretty eyes" on him. I think that's what most fangirls love about this doll. Fangirls does have a weird tastes, don't they? LOL! XD
So, without further ado, here's my review of the figure with pictures of him:- (Note: These photos are taken by me, so don't you ever try to stole this images with your name on it, 'kay?)
AZONE International logo on the top left of the front box.
"Asterisk Collection" on the top right of the front box.
Sebastian Michaelis figure inside the box. See that face? Yep, that's his smiling face. His face does shows a bit of 'rape' face instead of a simple "happy smile".
"Asterisk Collection No. 002: Sebastian Michaelis". In case you guys didn't notice, this is the second doll from a part of "Asterisk Collection". The first one is Ciel Phantomhive in his "Undercover" outfit. I knew this because I saw the picture of Ciel when I was browsing around about the Sebastian Michaelis figure.
A small "Aniplex" sticker on the front of the box.
A "WARNING/Caution" sign on the bottom of the box.
A logo on the back of the box.
Closer look of the "Phantomhive" logo at the back of the box.
A description of the figure.
Right-side of the box showing a black-colored flower.
Leftt-side of the box showing a white-colored flower. A black flower on the right and a white flower on the left... Hmm. I wonder what that means.
The box of the figure with a "door" open. Kinda similar to that of those HOT TOYS and Medicom figure boxes.
Sebastian Michaelis figure, still in the box... and he's looking at the camera with his 'rape' face.
Unboxing Sebastian Michaelis figure while still in the plastic box. This is different from other 12" action figures that I mostly got. It has another box inside the box. That kinda reminds me of this one meme line...
"Yo dawg! I heard you like boxes, so I put box in yo box so you can unbox while you unboxing."
Famous meme line in the internet history. LOL! XD
A closer look of Sebastian Michaelis figure with his 'rape' face. "Why is he smiling?" Don't ask why.
As you can see, he still got his clock on his pocket even though he's just a doll. Well, you know him. He never late for his work 'cause he's one hell of a butler. ;)
At the back of the plastic box where Sebastian still stuck inside the plastic box, you'll see a bunch of interchangeable hands and a few pegs for the figure. Hmm, not bad. I wish HOT TOYS or Medicoms should do this, too. I mean, instead of putting those interchangeable hands on the box, they should've put them separately in a plastic or something and put it inside a box, just like this picture. That way, it's safer.
Ciel's "Sleepwear" outfit. This a pre-order gift bonus item, which means that you can only get this outfit if you pre-order it by 27th of October last year (27 October, 2011), but I pre-order this figure around December, 2011.
Sebastian Michaelis doll, out of the plastic box, but...
...his head is still wrapped in plastic. The main reason why his head is wrapped in plastic because of his hair. Wow... AZONE knows how to handle the quality. Nicely done, AZONE. :)
I don't know what that thing is called, but I do know that it has a "Phantomhive" logo on it if you see it carefully.
Remember about that clock thing that I mentioned earlier? Forget it. He doesn't HAVE any clock in his pocket. It's just a normal chains. I thought he have his clock in his pocket... Oh well. Atleast he's still one hell of a butler. ;)
Sebastian Michaelis' head after taking the plastic out of his head. Good gracious... His 'rape' face.
Taking it from the right-angle. ...Why is he still looking at the camera? Damn, this doll is creepy...
Taking it from the left-angle. Well, atleast he didn't look at the camera this time...
His "Yes, my lord" pose. Again, he's looking at the camera. What the hell is up with this doll?
A pose that something came up in my mind. I don't know how many times I see Sebastian try to seduce fangirls by his girly-looking face and his erotic poses, but... I guess that's what he always do in his everyday life when Ciel is away.
...And he's looking at the camera again with his 'rape' face. I guess he likes camera so much, huh?
Sebastian Michaelis without his jacket. Yep, he's just like any other 12" action figures, he can be UNDRESSED-TO-NAKED. Yeah, I can see in your eyes. You fangirls LOVE to see him undress, don't you? ;)
And that's all for the pictures of the Sebastian Michaelis figure. For my final overall review... Hmm, let's see...
1.) The box was a bit small but pretty nice, neat and clean.
2.) Simple and not so hard to unbox the figure.
3.) Putting the interchangeable hands separately in safer place.
4.) The doll is a pretty light. Yeah, the doll is pretty light than other 12" action figures that I have and most of them are a bit heavy.
5.) Nice plastic vinyl hair.
6.) Can be dressed-to-full and undressed-to-naked.
And... well, this figure is good, nothing bad at all. The quality of the figure's body is almost similar to that of Medicom body figures, though. But still it's a good figure.
This is a MUST-HAVE for all Kuroshitsuji fans so if you wanna buy one, you can get it right over here:-
AZONE Int. Kuroshitsuji II Sebastian Michaelis 1/6 Doll
Note that there will be NO CIEL'S SLEEPWEAR OUTFIT for this doll figure. And the price for this figure is U$199.90, but now it's U$191.89 but I suggest you should BUY this figure before the offer expires and before it's too late. I can sense that a lot of fangirls would wanna get their hands of this figure...
And that's all for the figure review of today and see you guys later in the next figure review. ;)
