Figurine | My Hero Academia TEXTURE Ochaco Uraraka


When it comes to the Banpresto Texture line designed for My Hero Academia, I love how I can focus just on the costumes and the upgrades for each of the characters and compare the differences between each and every figurines that I have released for the past couple years.

Therefore onto this week's figurine, I want to talk about this figure featuring one of the anime's main character Ochaco Uraraka (麗日お茶子 Uraraka Ochaco) and if you've been following my Facebook page, surely you saw another My Hero Academia figurine line from Bandai Spirits called The Amazing Heroes that I'm currently collecting too so I'll be posting some reviews on them next month!

Now at this point, this figure is one of two Ochaco's figures that I have with another from Banpresto The Amazing Heroes line although I've already pre-ordered the upcoming Q Posket figure which will be arriving next month so I'd be sure to keep you guys posted on that as well.

So first, let's talk about the packaging!

As you can see above, there's half of the figure front elevation printed at the front and smaller sides of the box while a close-up of the textured finish of Ochaco's costume printed on the other side.

At the back of the box, there's the front elevation of the figurine being printed again along with one point of close-up that we'll be focusing on for this figure. Note that this figure came out with the B version of Izuku Midoriya that I've already reviewed here.


At the top side of the box, there's the figurine line; Texture printed on it and there's also the round, hologram MediaLink sticker on top of the white box that says Licensed by TOHO Co. Ltd. Also, there's the manufacturing date printed at the bottom side of the box which is April, 2021.

Now, the figurine came with an inner packaging and protector lining that supposedly hold the unassembled figurine inside so even when the outer box get smashed into half of its size, not to worry as the figurine should be safe for you to unbox.

According to my observation, an authentic figure always comes in a box and there's serial number stamped on the inner side of of the top (sometimes bottom) lid of the box so definitely check yours before cutting open the plastic cover.

I also noticed that these recents releases have set of number printed right on the plastic and there's also a series of number printed at the foot stand unlike the first figurine that came out from this figure line. 

As you can see, the condition of the box is just perfect thanks to the seller already who wrapped the box with bubble wrappers and delivered in big and sturdy box with the rest of my order couriered via UPS.

While other figurines came in unassembled parts, this Ochaco figurine didn't require any assembly although sealed in clear plastic along with the custom pink foot stand.

Basically, Ochaco's hero costume consists of a skin-tight black full-body suit with a pale pink design down the middle of her torso, two black circles at the middle of her chest and a horizontal black rectangle below her waist, supposedly running between her legs. There are two pink patches over her shoulders; both cut off by pink armbands that match the thick choker around her neck. She has circular wrist guards with pink handles and pale pink knee-high boots with pink soles plus a two-piece belt around her waist with a pink circle embedded at the centre where the pieces joined together.

Now, here are the satisfying close-ups of the figurines!

There's the embossed copyright logo at the back of Ochaco's boots.

I love how Ochaco's expression here just so cute and screams encouragement as if to tell us, it's okay and keep on fighting!

So what do you think of this figure? I simply love the textured finish on her! Have you watched My Hero Academia? Definitely let me know by leaving comments down below and I guess that's all of it! I'll see you guys on next week's post!
