Gashapons, Trading Figures, and Petits Need Love Too Part 12: Shannon

Header

Righto! So as usual I’m late to the party. I know that’s shocking right? So I went off looking for figures from Umineko Naku Koro Ni not long after watching the show and I found this adorably terrifying figure of Shannon. As one of the best parts of the anime I really wanted a figure of her. This was one of the last ones available on HLJ, I got lucky enough to snag her 🙂

I get the impression that in her clumsiness Shannon just dropped something, probably a teacup, and is overreacting…again. Her eyes are huge and filled with waterworks. This poor girl is one dropped dish away from an emotional break down me thinks. The pose is cute and the detailing on it is fairly good.

I do kind of hate these bases though. They don’t really DO anything. I think it’s supposed to support her bulbous head from the sides, but it doesn’t actually touch her head at all.  It’s kind of awkward.

From the back you can see the ties of her apron. It looks nice, and I love the ruffles around the edge of said apron.

I know this is a mega deformed little monster but I was honestly a little bit disappointed that she doesn’t have her tattoo on her leg. For those who don’t know it’s supposed to be a wing, that looks kind of like this:

The little figure doesn’t have the slit in the skirt at all though. Sad Panda…

Overall though she’s a cute little addition to my collection and a decent representation of Shannon.
