Aegis, Persona 3, Cospa

Sometimes you just know you need it. I wanted this statue, and I was going to have it! Thus began a month of begging, pleading, and whining at my husband about upcoming birthdays and needing this toy. She cost 240.00 after shipping and was worth every cent of it and every minute spent pleading. The Gee! Limited edition Aegis is perfection in plastic, as a fan of Persona this is the definitive figure to own.

Possibly the sexiest diorama to ever come out of Japan this toy is so beautiful. She’s sexy, in perfect proportions, and stunningly detailed. 

Her face is very well sculpted and quite beautifully painted. Her lips are full and pouty, her eyes show no emotion, as she fires her gun on her enemies. Her ribbon is blowing with her movement and her hair is caught up in that as well.

The gun tips are actually indented inward. She’s painted in an off white making her appear to be an old robot, this Aegis isn’t fresh off the presses that’s for sure, her metal isn’t super shiny, she looks kind of like she’s an old model. Nice touch!

Her hair has some great detail to it. Again it actually looks to be moving with her not against her. It’s also got some great texture to it, her hair looks great.

Her hand firing the bullets has smoke coming out of it, and attached to the smoke are discarded shells. The smoke also has a frosted paint job too, making it look like smoke and not just a plastic blob.

From this angle you can see the hips on this girl, amazing. She also has seam lines on her sides from where she was put together. Her shoulders are clearly mechanical.

The sculptor did a magnificent job on her waist, detailing a flat stomach, she’s twisting and the shape of her body actually looks natural doing it. The black loops down by her legs look old, maybe even a little rusted nice. 

Her hips just like her shoulders have clear mechanical parts. Her butt is very shapely and well-rounded without looking over done. No unnecessary detail here!

She’s connected her base by a single large peg. Once you get her on that peg, you’ll have a hell of a time ever getting her back off again.

The persona base has a very well sculpted face. It’s a dark blue which sets a stark contrast to the figure itself. The entirety of the base is held together by lightning. Which looks really good. I’m not usually a fan of the whole energy thing on my figures, but there’s so much going on with this particular figure that I don’t think it detracts at all.

The helmet features a sphinx resting on top of  it, off of the sphinx’s wings, the hair on top of it is well-defined.

The part of the persona that connects to the base itself is large, but detailed enough that it doesn’t come off as ridiculously chunky. It’s very well shaded and the gold pattern is a very nice touch.

The sleeve here is kind of strange, but the hand coming out of it looks great, though it could use a little more detail.

The front of the helmet shows some nice gold detailing, and the sides of the helmet are beautifully woven together.

The breast-plate shows more nice detailing with the blue on the front showing the same woven detail as the helmet. The depiction of the sun on the front is a little childish and silly, but still overall cool.

I am a thirty two year old fujoshi. I adore Aniplex and Capcom both to a near criminal degree. I love cosplaying. Some of my favorites to date are Miles Edgeworth and Chrollo Lucifer. I am also currently working on Tatsuya Suou. My absolute favorite genre is mystery. I LOVE a good mystery. I have a varying degree of fandoms. I love a lot of different anime, but I can honestly say I love old school american cartoons just the same. My favorite book is The Bacta War in the Star Wars X Wing novel series. I finally beat the Demi-Fiend! He was freaking hard!. I think that's all for now though.
