Newly arrived Kuroshitsuji SEGA EX Sebastian and Ciel.
Saw these figures (Sebastian Michaelis and Ciel Phantomhive) on sale at used goods store Mandarake. They are game prizes from SEGA, called EX Figures. I’m not too sure about the details but for the price of 2,000 yen a set, I thought they’re quite a bargain. Very beautiful package boxes!
Sebastian stands at about 20cm tall and Ciel at around 14 cm tall. They’re pretty well-made and detailed for the price as you can see from the images that’ll follow.
The sculpt and painting details on Sebastian are good and well-defined, for example, his face, chains and buttons. Definitely something you can only find in authentic figures. Even the little space between his glove and his white cuff where his wrist is was painted a flesh colour. That’s some awesome attention to detail.
There are some scratches-like imprints as you can see from the left photo on the surface of my Sebastian’s pants but they are not obvious unless you scrutinise him. I guess it sometimes can’t be avoided since this is a mass-produced product.
The teapot and cup and saucer set can’t be removed but it is not a big issue since Sebby’s pose would look strange without them.
As for Ciel, he looks equally good and the paint work just as beautiful. No complaints at all. His staff is removable but I would leave it in his hand anyway. since he would also look strange in this pose without it.
They also painted Ciel’s sapphire blue ring on his left finger nicely… Very impressed :)
Oo~ look at those cute-looking shoes on Ciel. And Sebby is meticulous as ever. Look at them shine!
In conclusion, I have to say I’m really happy with this purchase overall, so if you come across it at a reasonable price, grab it! ^^
Ah~ HLJ is taking preorders for the next installment of Grell and Sebastian (Tutor version) figures ^^ A bit more expensive at 1,500 Yen each but now that we know the quality is pretty good, might be safer to secure a copy if you like this series. Looking forward to seeing them! Available in February 2010.
