Review: GSC Maid Trio pt2, Tohsaka Rin
Few days ago I had a simple review on Rider in Maid pt 1. Well, since I brought both my older figures Rin and Saber out for some joint-base photoshoot with Rider, why not some review an them both too. So this post will be dedicated for Rin.
I acquired my Rin back in August 2007. Maid has been relevant to my interest back then too. And thank you GSC for bringing F/HA Maid lineup.
As Rider, Rin too had a modest victorian style maid outfit in red with long apron. In terms of pose, Rin have a more dynamic/lively pose, where she somewhat swings her apron up.
And to add her tsunDERE DERE factor, she had some pinkish shy mark on her cheeks :3
Rins head/face sculpt detailing is top notch. Very well sculpted with seamlines well hidden even on her hair. By not having laces on her outfit do help in not making sculpting job hard. And not to mention, good paintjob overall on her.
Somple long white apron all the way in front. I really like her dynamic free flow swinging feeling. Well, what can you possibly expect a maid with long outfit to pose anyway?
She somewhat hooked her fingers on the apron. As you can see, her thumb kind of a little fat. Not too obvious when she had her apron coverup.
Nice pair of high boots. But boots laces are also in brown, not coloured.
Not to forget, panties mode. Somehow theres a gap between her upper body and lower half when the skirt is not there. Is it a defect? Panties mode collector might not be happy with this.
I just noticed that my Rin already had some red paint smear on her tummy, probably from her skirt. NOOOOOOOOOOO ;__; So sad. Probably its because of hot climate here where the colour starts to melt, or too many cast-off’ong her panties >_<
I just felt like I need to fix the paint issue. Took some damp cottonbud and some alchohol (my deodorant) and gently rub the paint off. Then rinse with few rounds of wet cottonbud and let dry. The result, happy Rin is happy :)
In case you got kind of interested with Maid Rin, dont worry as GSC will be reissuing her this month (May) :)
