Angel Beats - Tenshi/Kanade Beach QueenAngel Beats - Tenshi/Kanade Beach Queen

! This review has some slight NSFW-pictures because of inzoomshots on certain parts !

Hello everyone! As promised in BLOG #5487 Here is my next review! Sorry it took a while, but I'm planning to get back at it again and write a whole bunch of new ones soon!

The figure I'll be talking about is Tenshi ITEM #64866, from the Beach Queen line, in her swimsuit. You may know her from the anime, light novel and manga Angel Beats!

Before I start this review, I just want to let you know, I don't own any other Beach Queens, so I can't compare her to others from this line. I also love loli's very much, so sorry if I start ranting! ^///^ Let's go!

How did I get Tenshi?

When her pre-orders opened, I hadn't watched Angel Beats. So I saw her as "just a swimsuit-figure which is a quite cute". That was not enough reason to pre-order her for me. ;)

After finishing the series a few months later, I browsed a Dutch site (let's say it's a sort of Dutch Ebay) and saw someone selling this figure. The opening-bid for her was 15 euro (around $20). So I thought "why not, i'll see where it goes" and placed that opening bid.

A few hours later, I got an email from the seller that she accepted my bid and wanted to sell the figure to me, with shipping costs that were 6,75 euro (around $9). So that meant that I got her for 21,75 euro (around $29) including shipping!

Well, that sounded very fishy to me, but the seller was legit as far as I know (I had some friends earlier buying from her), and there weren't bootlegs of Tenshi/Kanade (I'll be calling her Kanade from now on), so I should be safe.

A few days later she arrived and...well I'll talk about my thoughts about her in the upcoming review! ^^

Her box

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-uiebt3elGTQ/UM2UGFDpLjI/AAAAAAAABi8/4rTVVPDx0LA/s640/IMG_6647.JPG

The box has shots from the finished figure from all different angles on it. Especially the face on the backside looks immensely cute!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-xpxd0OeaxWo/UM2UHdkaTRI/AAAAAAAABjI/AuOEo6e1ChQ/s640/IMG_6648.JPG

She was wrapped in a lot of plastic and very sturdy blisters, but luckily, with a window, so you could also look at her face very well (for the collector's that like to keep their figures in the boxes).

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Y0G5epUAHps/UM2UJ7LDoEI/AAAAAAAABjY/3Epzx4Mg_mc/s640/IMG_6651.JPG

I normally photograph my figures for their reviews in this part of the box...be lucky I didn't! xD The letters everywhere and the colour were really annoying to look at!

The base

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Gj2ndEM8RME/UM2UIgoT_7I/AAAAAAAABjQ/2fvnynm5H-k/s800/IMG_6649.JPG

Yep...that's her base. I get the idea that she is a "beach queen" and supposed to be on the beach...but damn, this doesn't really look like sand, does it?

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-qlkmjTgdVb8/UM2UIgG5iBI/AAAAAAAABjU/7fPeIbpMV6g/s800/IMG_6650.JPG

Especially when I compare it to another figure of mine ITEM #938 which is also standing on a beach...

Oh well, a plus is that her base is very small, so she won't take any unnecessary space! ^^'

Let's have a first look!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-42JMTFcrKok/UM2UKzB8exI/AAAAAAAABjk/dRAym1qKoks/s640/IMG_6652.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-2D9Z_Vr4VO0/UM2UL9bUY_I/AAAAAAAABjs/IzVRtYTqTdY/s640/IMG_6653.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-rpCLF2-sOxs/UM2UMtEtxiI/AAAAAAAABj8/OdHvW0kPpM4/s640/IMG_6655.JPG

Gosh, how cute she looks! She looks so shy posing in her swimsuit! ^///^

And now...a closer look!

Let's start looking at her details from up close!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-tF8J9LUK_UA/UM2UNse3v8I/AAAAAAAABkI/04mK8BRbRTE/s640/IMG_6656.JPG

Her face and those blushes! Hnnngg. But...wow...what's going on with her arm! Such a huge gap! @.@

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-DEavAJCeb1U/UM2UNxwHo3I/AAAAAAAABkE/O5iW9wbGniM/s640/IMG_6657.JPG

Her arm almost seems to fall off...seriously what's going on here! Q.Q Her arm is glued, so I can't move it at all, so I can't fix/change it unless I first break if off her...but let's get to positive points again! Her hair looks really good! Almost no seam lines and it looks like she really is standing in a nice breeze!

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-mYGGX8SPTrM/UM2Ubm0IjSI/AAAAAAAABkg/oLLMlWZjrQM/s640/IMG_6658.JPG

Moving down to her body! She really tries to let her boobs stand forward, but still looks very shy because of her hand.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Hs2HXwgKqeA/UM2URHnjB3I/AAAAAAAABkY/F6w1yECFex8/s640/IMG_6660.JPG

The swimsuit itself is a Japanese style shoolswimsuit, with some differences (like the blue lines of details).

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-HD3K4sqUZZU/UM2XbAi6CWI/AAAAAAAABm4/WHWqXvP1-SI/s640/IMG_6659.JPG

It has quite some wrinkles, especially near her crotch, letting the swimsuit look like it sits very tight. It also allows you to see some small details like her ribs and a bit of her tummy.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-_O9LzgC4LuE/UM2XanCixGI/AAAAAAAABmw/AODGqJBxq1Q/s640/IMG_6661.JPG

And yes...for those interested...you can see what's down there very slightly. You have to look very hard and it almost isn't visible on pictures...but yes, it's there.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-qgQE6AmtfUQ/UM2VC6ntWVI/AAAAAAAABlQ/Hx5KqV97bxo/s800/IMG_6668.JPG

Her butt has a little bit of details, you can see the form of her cheeks a little bit, but not much. Unfortunately, there are also huge gaps here and also a few praint transfers (luckily the only ones I found on her!).

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-auU88zCzZH8/UM2UdMeE4YI/AAAAAAAABko/yhO8LI6TtV0/s640/IMG_6662.JPG

Her right-hand is nicely shaded and detailed, but it doesn't lead away the attention from the horrible gaps at her neck!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-O-dE0HAyqD4/UM2Ue3GZX-I/AAAAAAAABks/A8CFd0FQijU/s640/IMG_6663.JPG

Her left-hand has some left-over material that can be easy removed. But do you see the cute nailpolish? The colour really fits her! And it is a nice detail that I didn't expected her to have!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-zqCtbCY5LP8/UM2Xaj8_GGI/AAAAAAAABm0/SvAz7TB08TQ/s640/IMG_6666.JPG

Her legs look immensely good. Nice shading at all places and especially the thickness of her upper legs make her look very healthy.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-0zecCDZIKbQ/UM2UgI8eiZI/AAAAAAAABk4/yOpnD7NEhjo/s800/IMG_6664.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-QSVUg0eno6I/UM2Uhr96tlI/AAAAAAAABk8/alFd4bR5jTo/s800/IMG_6665.JPG

Both of her feet have a little bit too much shading on them, especially between her toes. The nail-polish looks also good here.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-kGlo1BvFJc8/UM2VDGGToyI/AAAAAAAABlU/U1-X5jiC9C0/s640/IMG_6669.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Qu-CF7ParCA/UM2VDwMUfbI/AAAAAAAABlY/xmjaiu84FOE/s640/IMG_6670.JPG

Her hair looks really good from the back. It doesn't have any shading, but it consist of multiple layers, giving it quite some depth. You can almost feel the beach-breeze!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/--WXxUP0im3Y/UM2VEV7UJXI/AAAAAAAABlc/G6p5JU6mtiM/s640/IMG_6671.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PvQreVLHb1A/UM2VEzI2F6I/AAAAAAAABlo/_6EFtkgY1ZQ/s640/IMG_6672.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-vEStNIBtPaU/UM2VF9j316I/AAAAAAAABl0/FvcNnINBi2g/s640/IMG_6673.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-QMImtY3t4DQ/UM2VGR7Dh3I/AAAAAAAABl8/tI1E_fbSaxU/s640/IMG_6674.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lkYbRk2jp9M/UM2VHFqlE4I/AAAAAAAABmA/A7Hm0cGOmZQ/s640/IMG_6675.JPG

Kanade has a neck-joint. Making it possible to let her head look at almost every possible position and makes it possible to change heads with other figures from the Beach Queen-line. I think it is a very nice extra, but it got to say that I like the way her face looks that is advertised with, the best!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bCgb_dVMlNI/UM2VJmPfRlI/AAAAAAAABmg/GwTcMFtBpaE/s640/IMG_6679.JPG

From certain angles, it is unfortunately very visible that she has a neck-joint.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-YsTR-HdUFyU/UM2VHY3Ty0I/AAAAAAAABmE/bEQ3aZ-rusY/s640/IMG_6676.JPG

The longer I look at them, the more those gaps annoy me. If you have paid the pre-order/release-price for her, this really is not acceptable.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-eWqjQ4aW98k/ULuArcg-HnI/AAAAAAAABe8/zuiIayIhC4I/s640/IMG_7138.JPG

And to finish this review! This is her place in my detolf! Nice and cozy with some other beach/swimsuit-figures!

Sculpting 6/10
Yes...she has many deatails that look very good, especially for her price (she was released for 3800 yen), but the gaps are really unacceptable.

Painting 8/10
A little bit flaws here and there, such as way too much shading at her toes. But overall, very good!

Posing 9/10
It is very simple, but fits her character well and looks way too cute!

Base 5/10
Nothing special, but also nothing really bad.

Packaging 8/10
Nice packaging in a good size offering good support for her.

Enjoyment 9/10
I give her a 9 out of 10, because for the price I paid for her, I think I really got a great deal!

Summary, or tl;dr

Positive
- Good packaging
- Cute face and body!
- very shy-looking pose
- Nice hair
- Way more details than expected

Neutral
- Her base
- A little bit too much shading at some places

Negative
- A lot of "gaps" especially at her arms. This is not acceptable if you have paid a high price for her.

For those who read all this way, Thank you! ^^ I'm already busy with writing and photographing for my next review, which is about this lovely lady: ITEM #61401

Asako (6年前) #1273808I have a couple Beach Queens and have been surprised at the quality of them for the tiny prices they go for. Really quite good figures for very little money. Not stunning figures, but what do you expect for $20-30? A hellova lot better than trading/prize figure tacky stuff.
Tenshi is also adorable. Though I opted for GSC's version with wings (which I since sold due to new one coming out soon). Still, this is quite a nice figure, and takes very little space which is a plus. ^^


They have way more details than I expected, too! I can only hope that other Beach Queens have not such gaps! :O

And the Tenshi with wings is also very beautiful. I would have maybe thought about buying her, if I didn't buy this one earlier.

maraiatori (6年前) #1274106I want to get her one day XD
thanks for the review~


Hope you can also find her for a good price! And no problem!

rowbutts (6年前) #1274520It sucks your first BQ has those gaps :< mine have been pretty great.
Kanade is so cute though, and dang what a deal you got her for.


Yeah, I think the gaps-problem is limited to Tenshi, because I never heard about it before on Beach Queens! And yes, she was a great deal! Really worth what I paid for!
