Doll Review – vmf50 Super Sonico (NSFW)

Yamato's vmf50 Super Sonico

Yamato’s vmf50 line continues apace, with the company having recently released Image Girl #5 Ami and having shown off a couple of concept dolls at Doll Show 31. And Super Sonico’s popularity continues apace, with both Orchid Seed and Yamato having released PVC figures of her this week and with her game SoniComi scheduled for release this August. And even before all of that, Yamato revealed a vmf50 version of Sonico. I hadn’t planned to get her since she was really expensive. The first round of preorders opened up late last summer and closed down almost instantly, prompting Yamato to do a second run, which is when I changed my mind and placed my preorder.

Doll Review – vmf50 Risa (NSFW)

Yamato vmf50 Risa Doll Review

The vmf50 series are the newest dolls in my collection, but my doll-collecting habits go way back. In fact, before I collected anime figures, I collected dolls. I think I got my first doll back around 2003 and my collection rapidly grew to around a dozen 1/6 scale dolls. When I got into PVC figures, my doll collecting tapered off and nowadays, I don’t buy very many of them. When I first saw Yamato’s vmf50 doll, though, I decided that this was something worth getting. I got my first vmf50 doll earlier this year and I’ve since built up a small collection of doll clothes and accessories. I named her Simone, but Yamato calls this doll Risa and that’s what I’ll call her for the purpose of this review.
