Pretty much by now most of us that are into Horror films have seen this movie. I for one am a horror fan and when I saw this in Wonder Festival Winter 2014 and that Bandai was making this figure i had to get it.
Sadako Yamamura is the antagonist of the movie, and the reason the cursed tape exists. it is said “when you watch the tape you will r a call saying that you will die in 7 days”
Front of the Box
The box is designed with a nice touch of the circle portraying the view Sadako has when looking up the well. The labels of “ Ringu” and Yamamura Sadako then product licenses at the bottom right as the S.H. Figuarts at the top right. The display gives you a feel of what this figure comes with.
Back of the box
Like with Figma boxes, This is where you see the different poses you can put Sadako in.
Blister Package showing off everything she comes with.
Items she comes with are as follows
2nd skirt piece
3 extra head pieces
extra pair of hands
tv with well screen
tv screen with a hole
Here is how you put the 2nd screen.
This is pretty much easy. the back of the tv is hollow so all you need to do is push the screen back so it pops out of the pegs.
once it’s out replace it with the 2nd tv screen and push it in place.
putting sadako in place is pretty easy too.
pop her off her torso then peg her into the tv.
She comes with a bunch of different hair parts.
2 are hair pieces that attach to her main head and the other two are heads.
1st her hair when she comes out of the tv, 2nd when she is crawling on the floor, 3rd her face hair piece one with all her hair covering her face when standing up, 2nd hair piece when she is giving “The Look” with one eye to the victim.
I have to admit the attention to details on her fingers make it more interesting. since her crawl is very iconic in this movie.
Her articulation is some what limited due to her hard plastic skirts, but luckily she came with a crawling pose. which can be used for her to sit down and do different things with. Over all just enough to keep her characteristic personality in check. She’ll be perfect when halloween rolls around the corner. I sorta wish she came with a well too and additional hands. but The tv makes up for the ideas. So if you are into Horror shes a great catch!
