My ever expanding collection of Horo figures continues, now totaling 11 distinct figures with this e2046 knock-off of Rasetsu Nakobakaya’s Horo.
Of the four nude Horo figures I own, Alpha Max, CM’s Corporation, Global and this Rasetsu version, I think I would rate Rasetsu’s second in likability and 3rd in general quality. Alpha Max’s Horo looks kind of strange with her protruding ribcage, so her likability is a bit lower than Rasetsu’s, however her quality and detail is superior. Rasetsu’s Horo is fairly simplistic in appearance and detail, and has an annoying gap around her face/neck area where her head attaches to her body. Overall however, it’s a playful pose and generally appealing, more so from the rear.
Having snowed pretty heavily this week I figured it was a great opportunity to use the snow for a couple of photos. Initially just taking some feature phone shots for a G+ community challenge, I eventually grabbed this Horo figure and threw her in the snow as well. It seemed rather fitting for her, despite her lack of attire. Unfortunately I was a bit lazy and shot these all from the comfort of my kitchen floor, aiming out onto my snow covered porch. I don’t think I could have made it to any of the locations I shot Sayame at without better winter gear. Still, I think the porch shots turned out satisfactorily.
Despite loathing bootlegs and knock-offs, I am rather grateful to e2046 for producing them. Their knock-off of Tsuru no Yakata Horo has become my favourite figure for taking out on excursions, and while this nude figure likely will never be my favourite, CM’s Corporations Horo is a much better nude, I’m still happy to have her in my collection.
Lovin’ all this snow we got, finally feels like a real winter.
