Rio Rollins Tachibana Bandai 1/8 Scale


Welcome back again ladies and gentlemen to Somewhere, today I bring one of my personal favorite anime ladies of all time. Rio Rollins Tachibana!


I’m going to call this one action Rio, she’s dashing forward and looks pretty excited about wherever she’s running to. Her face is alight with enthusiasm. Her hair is blowing nicely in tune with the way she’s running.


The choker she’s wearing looks really nice, and it suits her look quite well. She’s got a very nice collarbone and very nice cleavage.  Her ample boobs are pressed together and look fantastic. No seriously fantastic. The paint job on her vest though, that looks kind of….. bad. The white trim looks horrible, I do like the fold that’s between the buttons though. There’s a nice gap there that looks nice and very natural.


Her stomach looks halfway decent but not really special. The lines on her stomach show that she’s in pretty good shape. Her skirt looks really fantastic, I love the way it clings to her amazing hips. The wrinkles in the fabric are fantastic and coincide beautifully with how she’s running.


She has very nice legs, with plump thighs and well defined calves. She also has nice definition at the knees and ankles.


Her shoes are really cute, but the paint from them went over onto the skin of her feet. I really do love the gloss on her outfit though.


From the side you can see a kind of pitiful injection mark in her hair. That’s just a crying shame. From the sides you can see how her hair is blowing back behind her. Her profile is a little questionable down by her mouth though.


The sleeves look really nice especially where it’s kind of bunched up at the shoulder. I also like the open cuffs it’s a nice touch. Her shirt is blowing with the wind and makes her stomach look all that much sexier. Her side shows nice curves at her back.


Her skirt has a high slit in it, I love how the glossy fabric looks against her pale skin. Very sexy. Her legs are very nicely shaped.


I also really like how her face is obscured from this side. It looks fantastic.


Her vest has a lot of problems. a lot, ranging from bad seam lines to injection marks. Her boobies look amazing from the side. From this side we can see how the back of her skirt is blown up in back it provides a gorgeous view of her hip.


Her high heels look fantastic from the back view, I love the sole of the shoe. They look very realistic.


She’s got really nice hair, the layers look fantastic.


Her back has nice detail near the bottom of the vest, but she has a particularly bad scratch on one of her shoulders.


I think it’s genuinely hilarious that you can see the outline of her underwear through her skirt. I’m sorry but I don’t think that looks like particularly thin fabric.


She’s got really nice hands, with curled fingers. The sculpt here looks fantastic.



Her other hand is down by her side. She’s got very nice hands, her nails are fantastic and so are her knuckles.


Her box shows the other version of Rio that was released at the same time.


Overall this Rio is kind of lacking. For every thing this toy did right it did two things wrong. Her paint is catastrophic and her seam lines are really bad. They could have done a lot better on her. So sad.


About Tekizen

I am a thirty three 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 Varuna. 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.
