At a Glance (click to enlarge)
I'm surprised by her size, nowhere did I expect her to be 1/4th scale and she's not a bunny either! The amount of detail MIMEYOI placed in Duke of York's sculpt and paintwork really benefits from the larger scale.
Her sadistic expression is one of the things I really like about her. Particularly how her raised eyebrows slope with her cheeks that push the bottom part of her eyes upwards. Also, how she's biting into her lip as if she's struggling to restrain herself. The smooth pink tone of her lips and glossy reflection on her bottom lip are good points of her face's paintwork. For her hair, I like how each section appears to move in relation to her head, such as how the strands on the left are slower to move than those on the right, which are almost whipping around her. The painted highlights on the front section of her hair are on point and worth mentioning.
One of the easily missed highlights are her wrists and fingers, particularly the way her right wrist bends as she holds her hand behind her head. Her different colored fingers are reminiscent of another vampiric character, in the form of the Fate series' Elizabeth Bathory. Although easily missed, the focus on her detailed fingers is welcomed. The metallic red accenting of the outfit looks really good against its onxy-looking base color. However, my awe of her outfit's color doesn't extent to her shoes which looks out of place next to her stockings.
Duke of York's proportions are certainly outstanding and judging by her expression, she knows it well! Her design and pose easily expresses the wonders of mature body-types. While her breasts are larger than average, they aren't out of proportion with her squishy body and breathtaking thighs!
She stumbles here and there, but MIMEYOI's Duke of York is packed with detail from the tippy-top of her pretty head, to her pointy ears, and all the way down to her high-heels. Her sculpt is very good, but Moriyama Nana's paintwork takes her a very long way. Overall, I'm not about to begrudge her when I say that she's one of the nicest figures of the year so far and every bit worthy of her premium price tag.
