Play Arts Yuffie Kisaragi Review

Yuffie Kisaragi is one of the “secret” extra characters that can be obtained in Final Fantasy VII. Yuffie is an annoying teenager who constantly tries stealing materia (an energy source). She is very up-beat, happy, outgoing, and hyper to a fault.

I got this figure as a birthday present last year so don’t know how much it cost. This toy is made by Kotobukiya, was released in 12/2007, and is game-play edition Play Arts vol 2.

Packaging: 8/10

I’m rather fond of play arts boxes so I tend to give them high scores. They are simple, not too big, and have a nice viewing window in the front.

Base: 9/10

Typical Play Arts base, black with a metal waist clip, very similar to a doll stand.

Sculpt: 7/10

Yuffie’s sculpt resembles the artwork quite well, however, she seems too skinny. She is almost anorexic in appearance. Also, her face is not nearly as cheerful as it could be, and doesn’t fit the character’s personality. Despite the fact that her expression isn’t quite right, she does still have a nice face, her clothing is fairly detailed, especially the fishnet type stocking on her arm and leg.

Paint: 8/10

There is not much wrong with the paint, some minor bleeds and inconsistencies but mostly good. There is some really nice shading in the shirt, and the shoulder armor has an old used appearance as it should. This line of play arts, however, has excellent painting in the face. The eyes especially have a lot of depth.

Accessories: 5/10

She comes with some open hands, and her weapon the shuriken.

Poseability: 6/10

I gave her this high score only in comparison to the other Play Arts toys in this line. She is more poseable, and has slightly more articulation than the other female figures in the series. Despite having shorts on, her legs are not very flexible and she cannot sit down.

Enjoyment: 6/10

I’m not a big fan of the character, but she is fun to put into action poses seeing as she is movable.
