When I first saw the Aisaka Taiga (Toradora!) Miss-Con Version, I immediately knew this was a must have figure. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it in stock anywhere, and just figured I was out of luck and going to give up on her. Thankfully I was browsing Kid Nemo Company and there she was. Taiga was in stock and while the price was high, I had some money in PayPal still from a recent sale. So I took that money and made my purchase, and came out spending only $70 out of pocket with shipping.
When she arrived and I first removed her from the packaging, I was able to see just how beautiful this figure is in person. They captured her moment of happiness in her dress to perfection. As many know, Miss Tsundere isn’t one to always show her true feelings, but to have a figure like this that reflects one of those rare moments is great. The dress looks amazing, and the paint job is outstanding. I love the overall pose, and how you see her showing off due to her happiness. The tiara she is wearing absolutely shines as well.
She isn’t just limited to her wide open smile expression, as they included two other face pieces that reflect her in a bashful and embarrassed mood. Sadly those face pieces do not lock onto the neck too well, so I gave up trying to put them on in fear I might damage her. That would be my only knock on this figure, but I never planned on having her posed with them anyway.
Taiga has easily secured a spot in my top five figures with this one, and I even set her up on my mantle where only my favorite figures reside. This is a must own figure for not just Toradora! and Taiga fans, but for anyone who is a collector of figures. I have provided photos of many different angles.
