K-On! Takes Boobs to the Beach

Summer is ending, but the K-On! figures just got started.

There are some really, really nice K-On! figures out there. Wave's latest, the Beach Queens " treasure figure" collection, are not especially among them.

Not that they're outrageous or hideous or something, but a couple of things are a little off about Yui here. First, why is she trying to hike up her swimsuit skirt? That doesn't make any sense. And I notice that there's absolutely no side or even really angled view of her, so it almost looks like they didn't sculpt breasts on her at all, and what's sort of vaguely there is just shadow-- though I'm not sure, since again, there are no side views to be had.

Fan fave Mio, unsurprisingly, looks nicer. In this case the breasts are a little large for a show with supposedly realistic-ish girls, in my opinion, but that's a pretty minor complaint. The pose is boring as hell, of course, but she's pretty enough. I do like that you can swap out her hairdo to make her hair look up in a clip instead of down (though that much hair would NEVER stay in a clip that neatly, I promise).
There are a couple of nice things about htese figures: the painted-on eyes look good, and the expressions suit the characters nicely. And at ¥3800 (about $42 USD), they're relatively not too expensive either. I probably wouldn't consider them at more than $20, but I'm also not a big K-On! fan. So I'll leave that judgment up to you: will you buy these when they come out in late December? Or put 'em on your Christmas wishlist?

The great and all, but where the Mio for the ending, that the one that I want.

@Chengy:   Let's see, at Hobby Search this figurine was 23.67  British Pounds. Shipping cost for a figurine I recently ordered (that was about the same size as this I reckon) was 1800yen which, according to the internet, translates into 11.94 English Pounds. All in all that's 35.61 British Pounds (58.89 USD).  
 
It's quite a bit of money, but I thought seeing a solid number might make it easier for you to decide if it's worth it or not. In case you hadn't really checked it out yourself already. 
 
Thems the breaks though, if you wanna collect figurines outside Japan and Cons.

I coulda sworn in the beach episode they show that Mio is well endowed.  I could be mistaken though, so many anime, so many beach episodes...

No you're right, as soon as Mio is in a swimsuit you get a close up of her boobs, and Yui and Ritsu throw a beach ball at her and march off all jealous :P
That Mio figure looks about right to me, but I agree with Gia on the Yui figure.
 
They both look decent but I don't think I'd ever buy one. If I was gunna buy an anime figure I think I'd get something badass instead of something cute/sexy. Though saying that, I wouldn't mind one of these.

I dunno, they don't seem as cute sans guitar and clothing.

@Pyro:@Newten:

Hmm £30 is damm expensive for a figure though : /, and Dan dont lie, you would so buy one of those if you had the chance, i know you too well lol

Yui saves the light music club from suspension by becoming the fourth member. The problem? Yui has no clue how to play an instrument, castanets aside.
