Siesta by alter review

After all those Louise's its shining time for the maid: Siesta.

Some basic info

1/8 scale and 20 cm in height

Has been owned for a while, so please expect some minor dust etc
(will add better dust free pics later, very sorry)

-----------------------------

- Posing

Lets look at her from all angles

Rather simple pose but befitting siesta. She looks startled.. i kinda miss a bin with laundry though..

6/10

- painting and sculpting

Now lets take a look at the details here

Starting with her top

Looks true to how her outfit looks in the anime. Her breasts are a bit squeezed here but not too much. Nice frills at the side too

Her backside. You can see the typical maid outfit straps.

Zooming in...

They even gave the outfit a natureal seamline (so yes this is done on purpose)

her sleeves

Look nicely wrinkled

Zooming in you see the buttons

Her long skirt with apron

Looks pretty nicely shaded, giving that twirling effect a boost.
And the ribbon looks really well-made.

love the small detail here, the ''stripe''

Green, quite unusual. I approve.

Her boots

Love the cute details here like that tiny ribbon, they really put effort into making her exactly like her anime version.

And a side node, here you see her under skirt! :)

Her cute face

Rather nice, it hides the seamline well

Quite a simple figure with no huge flaws

Id say 8/10 for painting and sculpting
Cause there is nothing exciting..but no flaws either.
(kinda leaning towards a 7)

- Base

Well..

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Chloe-tsundere1495184729.jpeg


Trying to find something nice but really hard .. its a stable base.. but the yellow base is horrible. Doesnt make any sense.

6/10 cause it does what it has to do

- package

Shows the figure inside, good window view. Nothing too spectacular. Rather small, thats a big plus.

7/10

- Enjoyment

Well I must admit I bought her just to finish the ZnT shelf, it isnt complete without the maid. But shes rather plain and simple thus not a real eyecatcher..

7/10

Jenthehen (6個月前) #21290809People are being way too harsh. This is a classic Alter figure to me. I own her, as well. She is not dynamic or exciting, but I feel like it fits the character from the first season and she's one that I've never wanted to sell since I have good memories of Familiar of Zero.
We have to remember that this figure was released almost 9 years ago and for 5500yen. You can get her now from around $20-$30. Of course she isn't like this year's Alter releases (going for 15000yen typically!)
Yours is also extra dusty ;) Get some brushes / swiffers / canned air on her stat!


I totally agree, I picked her up for $15 and while she's not modern Alter quality, she's very crisp in painting and very consistent, just an all-round great figure in quality. And I have to say, early Alter stuff is quite charming - you see how they managed to become such a good company tbh.

Tiamat26 (6個月前) #21300304I usually do not read reviews as they are bias for the most part. it's not like someone will review a figurine that they hate to say nice things about it. Then again since it is you, Chloe, I do read all your blogs.
So I have a question. How did you determine that the base was scored a 6?

I always make unbiased, i put my own biased view on the enjoyment part, aside from that I just point out the good andthe bad :)
Im not even a siesta fan, just felt like reviewing her after all the louises.

As for her base, it doesnt compliment her at all (bright yellow ? Vs neutral colors..) nor makes any sense (not related to the serie either)

Jenthehen (6個月前) #21292031Figures with a lot of black are so hard to photograph - I feel like they always look kinda weird (and definitely show all the dust)

yeah I agree she was kinda hard ^^'' I didnt have time to go dust her again and try.. but will do so later.. see thing is when I take the pic you dont see it nor do I see it myself irl ^^'' so its taking 100s and hoping XD

luckily I have a white background tho for black figures :)

Chloe-tsundere (6個月前) #21291880I mention the dust warning for a reason? and I dust her regularly but the camera makes everything look worse ^^'' you dont even see it in real lol
But might redo the pics later on maybe dusting her over and over helps... but I dusted her before the review so yeah a good camera has its bad sides too I guess
and yeah I agree her quality is good but not dynamic then again shes a maid.. I guess

Xellos (6個月前) #21289033Great review, as for the figure... Veeeeeery mediocre. I would be ashamed to label this as an Alter figure. She's like a prize-level figure at most. Not much detailed, boring pose, no extras. What the hell, Alter?

Thanks. Well quality wise shes better than prize (shading and lil details) but yeah shes rather boring.. base makes no sense.. i mightve been too mild in my review lol

ney (6個月前) #21284575She was released few months before ITEM #4426 (that's you have also reviewed) and the render is totally opposite : Louise got a really dynamic pose when Siesta, well…, is just a plain maid i think ? But her character is interesting too so why ? You pointed it at the end of your article, you bought her to complete your ZnT shelf and i tend to think Alter only made her to have an other character than Louise from ZnT unfortunately.

Yeah i think alter couldve done a lot better I agree.. pose is meh as I pointed out but quality-wise shes far from prize. Pose-wise even a prize is better lol

I think they couldve pulled off a nice kirche as she was pretty much main in S1 :) for saito
Yet no one made her..

As for siesta they couldve made a tripping pose with washing bin or something to make her more interesting? Or a cheerful pose? And a better base even grass base would do well..

But yeah Ive never been a fan of Siesta after S1. Henrietta same around S3-4 she became horrible. But id still buy her I guess for the right price..
Siesta was a mere 2.5k if i recall correctly thus why i picked her up. For retail i prob wouldnt have unlike with louise
