A “Beach Queen” figure of Guilty Crown’s Inori has been confirmed – a fitting item of merchandise for the series as both are known for their lack of quality and abundance of defects, a perfect pairing indeed.
Figures of the “Beach Queen” line are recognized for having an overall average sculpt – with the occasional few that prove quite enticing. Although even then, the material remains messily assembled, and the price is simply stepping the lines of justification – especially for those outside of the motherland, thereby forced to pay all costs of import.
Whilst one would normally label that as simply “less than acceptable” and move on, the figure certainly still is unacceptable – yet it would be a waste to merely overlook it without taking the opportunity to ridicule the world renowned catastrophe known as “Guilty Crown”.
With this pink-haired heroine of the series being no more than a kicked around object the entire 22 episode span, it’s difficult to see why she would be deserving much of anything – or why any would even admire her for a reason beyond appearance. Yet regardless, she remains a trashy character – and it’s almost reassuring to see that even in PVC plastic, she cannot escape the reality of her character.
More so irritating, it’s incomprehensible why there’s yet to be any fine figures for the sole two redeeming factors of Guilty Crown – the girl of nekomimi, and the bishoujo in wheelchair.
