Shannon Banpresto


Back in April of this year I reviewed a figure of Shannon from Umineko No Naku Koro Ni (geez that’s a mouthful), in that review I mentioned being perpetually late to the party. Well Here I am again showing up with another figure of the lovely maid Shannon.


Shannon has a great head of hair, it frames her face nicely and looks like it has nice body to it as well as a little bit of bounce. Like she just walked out of a shampoo commercial. Herbal Essences will make your hair do this. She has a nice face with large blue eyes that are just brimming with (fake) innocence, they are two different shades of blue with a darker blue up top and fading into a light blue near the bottom. There’s a small smile gracing her lightly painted lips. She has a very nice look about her.


One arm is raised so she has a hand up by her face. Her fingers are curled up and add nicely to her air of innocence. Also the way her arm is pressed against her extremely ample bosom shows off some very nice wrinkles in her top.


Her brooch is painted purple with gold trim, hanging down from the brooch is a woman’s cravat, it’s maroon and matches the color scheme of her outfit very well.


Shannon’s got a great hourglass figure, very nice boob to hip ratio. The ribbon lacing up the front of her dress looks very nice, the paint is perfectly in place.


Her apron looks very nice as well, she’s holding up the fabric just a little bit which makes for some nice crinkles in the fabric. Underneath her apron is a white mini skirt that looks pretty good, the pleats look really good, however at the right edge the maroon trim is covered just a little bit by the white paint.


I adore Shannon but I’ve always been a little bit confused by her wardrobe, the black portion of her skirt is held closed by one small strip of fabric. through that hole you can see her tattoo, but we’ll come back to that a little bit later. The maroon fabric around the bottom of her skirt is fantastic, within the folds you can see where they added black paint for shading. It looks marvelous.


Shannon’s socks are adorable, they’re the same maroon with dark shading, the bows on the side are a very cute touch as well. Her legs are shaped nicely, she has good definition on her knees. I’m also very fond of the wrinkles down by her ankles….oh yeah speaking of ankles, she has very nice ankle bones too! Her shoes are simple black dress shoes that look very nice.


Her sleeves are nice and poofy at the shoulder and the wrinkles at her elbow are well placed.


The paint at the bottom of her apron is a tad bit spotty. It looks kind of like….yuck. Yeah I think that’s the best word for it.


Okay so the tattoo looks really good, it was applied to those meaty thighs of hers perfectly. The design is of an eagle with one wing, it’s the Ushiromiya family crest and signifies that she works for them.


Her hat looks like a giant marshmallow, personally I kind of dig it. Also the way her hair sticks out of the bottom. Adorable!


From the back you can see the seams where her arms were connected. Not the best job I’ve ever seen but far from the worst.


The bow on the back of her apron is well sculpted and it looks pretty nice, strangely though it is a shade darker then the apron itself. I have no idea why they did that.


Her legs show some very nice definition, specifically on the back of her knees where you can see the indent of the tendons.


Her finger are nicely curled and pressed against her palm, the detail on her hand looks very nice indeed.


Her other hand is clutching her apron, well from the front view anyway, from the side you can see that in all actuality she isn’t holding it at all. The apron is connected to her hand via a peg. Can’t tell from the front though and that’s what really matters.


Shannon’s box is fairly standard it shows a full picture of the figure as well as a very nice close up of her face.


Overall Shannon is your average cute girl figure. She’s got a perfect figure, a coy smile, and a fairly sexy fetishy wardrobe.  The majority of her flaws can’t be seen at face value. So do I regret owning her? Not at all. As an Umineko fan I can say she is freaking adorable and well worth her MSRP. Thank you for your time, have a good night and a Happy Halloween everyone!
