Today I had to sneak into the GSC Café to take a couple of photos of these two!!

These photos were taken in the karaoke room with my a Sony NEX-05! I normally always use my Sony Alpha, so these shots might seem a little different compared to normal.

These photos also let me pretend I’m doing karaoke after the summer festival together with the cute girls in yukatas! Adding that premise also gives a whole new feeling to the photos! :P
003
FREEing’s:
1/8th Scale Saber: Yukata ver.!

From the popular Fate/stay night series comes this 1/8th scale figure of Saber wearing a yukata perfect for the summer months! She is holding a folding fan in her one hand and a candied apple in the other!
005

It’s like she’s asking, “Want some?”

They way her hand is far out makes it feel like I’m out on a date with Saber and she is offering me some of the candied apple!! I can’t believe I got a date with Saber-san!!
004
This is how she looks from the back!

Even this side is more than cute enough!!! ・(ノД`)・゚・。

She is wearing a lovely blue yukata with darker blue morning glory prints along it.

I love seeing characters in yukatas, they always look so cute! I suppose part of the reason is because you don’t get to see them like this very often, but there must be more to it than that…
006
Her lovely hipline is visible through the yukata!

Your eyes just go straight for those lovely hips, don’t they? Often with kimonos or yukatas a towel will be placed between the bust and fabric to prevent them from standing out too much, so being able to make out the other areas of the body through the fabric becomes all the more important!
007
She also comes with a ponytail option!

An very nice extra option from FREEing!! The ponytail makes her look even more cuter to me – she looks more relaxed somehow!
011
Even the back of her neck is cute!

Saber looks like she has her attention elsewhere – I’m guessing there are more stands with some delicious festival food she wants to try! :P

You can also switch around which hands are holding the candied apple and the folding fan. (Well, you can on the prototype, we’ll have to wait and see if it is still possible on the final version!)
009
The second in the set is Ilya: Yukata ver.!

Ilya has a yukata with a similar shade of purple to her normal outfit, along with a lovely pink ribbon! She is posed in a much more exited pose as a lovely contrast to the calm Saber!
010
She even has a Berserker mask!

She looks so adorable in this pose! Rin and Sakura will also be following to complete the Fate girls Yukata collection, allowing you to keep all four of them by your side, all wearing the yukatas that come directly from the designs in the game!

1/7th Scale Luka Megurine: Tony Ver.

This is what I see when I get up from my desk!

001
Right in front of me is Max Factory!

Right here we have Nitouhei! We’re on the same floor with seats right next to each other now, so I can constantly spy on what he is up to! In fact, I can see he has a figure watching over him that I want to take a look at!
002
Max Factory’s:
1/7th Scale Luka Megurine: Tony Ver.!

A 1/7th scale figure of Luka based on popular illustrator Tony’s illustrations, following on from the previously released Miku figure! The unique transparent feeling that accompany Tony’s illustrations has been faithfully recreated on a very sexy figure that pulls out Luka’s charms with a very provocative pose.

Tony’s Luka went on sale on the 31st July! (`・ω・´)

She should be on sale at all of our partner shops at this very moment, so if you like this review you can head out and grab her today!
007
The sculpting was done by Chieri!

The sculpting is incredible!! I absolutely love Chieri’s work!!!

The way her body has been sculpted makes it look like it’ll feel just like real skin if you were to touch it! The see-though appearance and paintwork also look just like they did on the prototype! Great work to everyone on the manufacturing team!

004
This is how she looks from the back!

The long drapes of her skirt and her long hair both look beautiful from the back! Also take a look at the delicate little fingers holding the golden mike in the air!
003
That lovely transparent appearance!

Looking at the blue gradient in her eyes also sucks me in completely… I can’t believe they are done with stamp printing with this much detail! They also have a slightly glossy appearance which looks great!!

006
Her hair uses clear parts!

Definitely one of the highlight’s of Tony’s Luka is her beautiful hair, which is colored with a transparent gradient that gradually gets more see-through as it goes toward the tips!

Miku had a more glossy effect to her hair which made it much shinier, while Luka has a matte coating which gives her a more relaxed appearance!
005
The base is shaped like a record!

There are even small little grooves along the record, carefully sculpted onto the base! A base like this was such a great idea, and apparently it came from MAX Watanabe himself!
008
Wonderful knee high socks!!

The patterns on the edges of the socks along with the gold trim are also absolutely stunning! The little peek at her stomach is also quite a treat!
009
She looks great displayed with Miku!

Such bright colors! They compliment each other so nicely!

Seeing these two together really makes me want to see a Rin-chan coming as well though… let’s all plead of Max Factory to bring us Rin-chan next!
010
Max Factory’s:
1/7th Scale Luka Megurine: Tony Ver.!

 
She is on sale in stores now!!(`・ω・´)
Be sure to contact our partner shops if you have any sales queries!

I hope to see you all again next week!! (・∀・)ノ゛

1/7th Scale Sena Kashiwazaki

The WonFes New Figure Exhibitions!

008

From the 2nd August till the 16th August, the new figures that were on display at the Summer Wonder Festival 2012 will be on display in various locations around Japan including Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka! Many of the companies who had figures on display are taking part, so there are lots of figures to be seen!!

The full schedule can be found on the website below. (Japanese)

http://www.whl4u.jp/tour.html

What a lovely project! Now anyone who couldn’t make it to WonFes still has a chance to see some of the lovely figures that were on display!

          ______  
        /:υ::─ニjjニ─ヾ 
      /::li:( ○)三 ( ○)\   ”Hold on…!
      (:::||:: (__人__))::|    That means all the prototypes won’t be here!”
    〃 ):::::.   |r┬-| li::/
      /: : ::: l\`ー ‘/j: ::ヽ
    \ヽ :ヽ: : : 7ヽ />: ::r:\ 

That could become quite a problem…
I get the feeling it might be hard to continue with my work while all the prototypes are on tour, but I guess as long as everyone is enjoying them that is the most important part!

I’ll figure out something I can do!! :P
001
But anyway, let me grab some photos before the figures are taken away!

From ‘Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai':
1/7th Scale Sena Kashiwazaki!

From the popular light novel series “Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai” comes a 1/7th scale figure of Sena Kashiwazaki, the girl who would be perfect if it wasn’t for her personality! Sena has great grades and excels at sports, she has lovely blond hair, blue eyes and big breasts – but at the same time she has a really stuck-up and bossy personality.
003

This is how she looks from the back!

Her skin looks so squishy and touchable, and those curves are just fantastic!! Also take a look at how realistic the area between her thighs and calves look!
002
She has such a grumpy expression!

Definitely not the kind of expression you would normally expect to see on a figure of a cute girl. The pose is taken directly from the cover of the second volume of the light novel!
009
This is how she looks from the right side!

From this side you can can be reminded of why Yozora calls her ‘meat’ – just look at her huge bust! Not that I’m complaining. :P I’m sure there are many Sena fans that would be happy to display her in their rooms displayed at this angle!
004
The way the skirt flutters up is amazing!

I hesitate to mention the thighs again, but just look at the triangle formed between the two thighs – it’s wonderful! I almost can’t resist trying to put my hand through…

If there is anyone out there that doesn’t feel the same kind of urge, I think we need to sit down and have a long debate as to why until one of us gives in – I’m fairly confident I’ll win though!!  (`・ω・´)
007
A close-up on her body!

There really is nothing to criticize! I’m quite a fan of this style of character, so I looked at her quite critically, but there is nothing that even remotely disappoints!

Completely unrelated, but while we were looking at this picture I had a 10 minute conversation with Oonoshi about boobies! What a wonderful company Good Smile is! (Granted, she mostly just listened while I prattled on… :P)
006
She body makes a lovely S-shape!

The lively pose is really great to look at from all sorts of angles, not to mention super sexy!!  From the skirt that you just can’t see underneath to the hip-line you can make out from underneath her skirt – the figure is such a tease!

The high socks and loafer shoes you’d expect to see on most high school girls are also absolutely lovely!
005

Ooh! So close!

Today’s blog has quite a few photos, so I’m just going to jump right into it today!

Today we’ll take a quick look at all the products announced for rerelease this month!

We all know that once a figure has been our for awhile it becomes incredibly to get hold of it… I’ve know there have been times I’ve just been unable to get a figure I wanted leaving me down in the dumps. If you wanted but missed out on any of these figures in the past, then don’t miss out this time around!
002

Shiki Ryougi Garannodou

Shiki is of course from ‘Kara no Kyoukai’, one of the the many famous TYPE-MOON series! A movie of “Mirai Fukuin’ has also officially been announced now – when I head that I was so excited that I just couldn’t sit still! (I hope we’ll see a rerelease of Nendo Shiki as well!)

003

What a beautiful figure!!

I am a huge Kara no Kyoukai fan, but even if I wasn’t I would want this figure – she just looks so lovely! It’s quite hard to see from this photo, but the kimono is covered is a really intricate pattern that looks absolutely stunning!

Definitely a figure you’ll regret missing if you’re a TYPE-MOON fan!

004

She will be rereleased in November 2012!

As you can see, the packaging was just as beautiful as the lovely Shiki! She is available for preorder at our partner shops now!

005

Nendoroid Saber Lion!

Another product that had one of the highest results on Good Smile’s 10th anniversary rerelease polls! Somehow her mane looks really tasty – it looks like some kind of doughnut! :P

006

A rice bowl with a little lion on it is also included!

Plus she also comes with chopsticks and a leg of meat to help you pose her in some interesting situations. This lovely version of Saber was sculpted by none other than Hiro-san! He makes both scale figures and Nendoroids so well…!!

007

She is Nendoroid #50!

The rerelease version might also be changed to an arm-type stand instead of the one that you see in these photos, but there might be some problems that arise in manufacturing so we’ll have to see! As soon as there is a definite answer I’ll let you know!

Nendoroid Saber Lion will be available in November!

She is also available at all of our partner shops right now!
008

Nendoroid Saber:

10th ANNIVERSARY Edition!

This isn’t a rerelease, but instead a metallic version of the previously released Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition. It’s a special release to commemorate TYPE-MOON’s 10th anniversary! Her armor and sword are so shiny!

009

Expressions and swords included!

Excalibur and Caliburn are both included for Saber to swing around! She also has this lovely tantrum face that has so much energy about it – I love using it! :P

010

Nendoroid Saber : 10th ANNIVERSARY Edition is up for preorder at the Good Smile Online Shop!

She isn’t available at our partner shops, so be careful not to miss out on her!

- Good Smile Online Shop -

http://goodsmile-global.ecq.sc/

Orders close at 21:00JST on the 23rd July!

21

Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki!

Itoshiki-sensei was also placed very high in the rerelease polls, and his rerelease is now confirmed!! Yay! You can also use Phat! company’s playsets to recreate his classes like this!

He will be up for preorder shortly!

Keep your eyes on the Good Smile website for more information!

figma Marisa Kirisame & figma Reimu Hakurei!

The figma Touhou series! Great figures along with a load of extras to play with! Both Marisa and Reimu are going to be available once again! Ooh, just look at Reimu’s cute little belly button in that photo!

That’s to their large skirts its really easy to put them in great poses very easily, so I highly recommend these two to any new figma collectors as well! Don’t miss out again!

figma Reimu is available for preorder now!
figma Marisa will be re-announced soon!

011

Kiritsugu Emiya/Zero & Saber/Zero!

These two were released in 2008 by Max Factory and are going to be refined and rereleased with modifications to the expressions!

012

Saber has a replaceable hand part!

You can choose to either display her with Excalibur or without it. I love having small little options like this!

015

A very relaxed expression!

A very suiting expression to the Zero version of Saber, wearing her black suit from the series! I can just hear Ayako Kawasumi’s lovely voice saying “Madam!” when I see this figure.

013

Kiritsugu has his Thompson Contender!

It wouldn’t be a Kiritsugu figure without his beloved gun! This was made from Batayan from Max Factory – they are some really impressive figures!
014

Or have him hold a cigarette instead!

With just a quick switch of his hand the pose seems to change from a combat scene to a much more relaxed scene! I’m really not sure which way I would want to display him!
016

A real mischievous expression!

What a wonderful pose!! Those dull eyes with those lovely cheekbones and stubbly beard are all so wonderful!

Any Kiritsugu fan should enjoy this figure, but even just as a really awesome looking male figure he is great!

Kiritsugu Emiya/Zero and Saber/Zero will also be re-announced shortly on the GSC site!
017

Bonus Shot!

Kiritsugu displayed with Saber Motored Cuirassier!!

They are both 1/8th scale, so they look perfect displayed together!
001

… lots of products for you to grab if you missed out on them!

These are all going on sale again as a part of GSC’s 10th anniversary, so I hope those who missed out will be able to grab them this time around!
 
 
Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛

1/7th Scale Tomo Asama

Machida from Max Factory’s desk! (・∀・ )
001
As I’ve mentioned a number of times before, GSC and Max Factory are now both working from the same offices!

…which means I can get hold of prototypes easier!

The Max Factory planning team is right next to the WEB team that I’m located in, so it’s really just a few steps away to try and get hold of some Max Factory goodies, just like this one!
002
From Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere:

Tomo Asama!

From the anime series ‘Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of the only daughter of the Asama Shrine and Tori Aoi’s childhood friend, Tomo Asama!

She has one of the most appealing bodies of anyone in her class, which has been carefully sculpted in a sexy pose looking over her shoulder with a blushing expression.

    ___

 /  ─    ─\  Ooh…
/ <○>  <○>  \
|  (__人__)  |
\     `⌒J´ /
/            \

Definitely a figure with quite a few highlights…
Let’s take a closer look at them!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

I’m sure most people who see her will quickly have their eyes drawn to certain parts of her body (in my case I couldn’t help but want to stroke her thighs).

But once you take a step back and admire the entire figure you’ll notice that there is a lot more to her – for example just take a look at her beautiful hair, her wings or even her futuristic sandals!

011

Her body makes a lovely S-shape!

She has such a sexy body and on top of that the outfit she is wearing makes it look all tight and touchable as well! It’s almost a sin how perfect she is! :P

The red stockings also catches the light so nicely – just look at the way it shines off her thighs!
004

A lovely embarrassed expression!

As you’d expect from Max Factory, the overall quality is outstanding! The way her face is turned to the side along with the embarrassed look on it really gives off a wonderful feeling!
006

This must be the most erotic shot!

I honestly expected the photos after this one to give off more of a naughty vibe, but in the end I think this one has a very raunchy feeling to it.

The positioning of both her hands are key – the right hand is up supporting her breasts, while the left hand is down below supporting her… bow. :P
005

Promised Highlight #1!

     ____

/:::::: ( ○)三(○)\  ”I know she isn’t wearing a bra, but they’re still huge!”
|::::::::(__人__)::|
\::::   |r┬-|   /
ノ:::::::  `ー’´ \

007

What an incredible hip-line!

I personally find that looking at the hip-line from the back looks best with a slightly upper view. As you can also see from this shot, the wings on her back can be removed – if you don’t want to have any part of her body blocked with the wings then you can remove them whenever you like!
008

Promised Highlight #2!

010

A wrapped up Tori is also included!

Tori is the main character in the series, who ends up wrapped up in cloth like this during the series. Definitely a bonus that fans of the series will enjoy! I wish I could use her thighs as a pillow like him!!
009
You can even create this rather interesting situation with a few exchangeable parts!

Apparently there was a scene like this in the original novel, so Machida-kun really wanted to make it possible to create it with the figure! It’s great that even though she is a scale figure you have quite a few different ways to display her!
002
From Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere:

Tomo Asama!
 
She is already available for preorder!

If you have any preorder or sales inquiries, be sure to contact our partner shops!

 
But anyway, thats all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛

Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier

Me: “I want to go with to the product inspection but I don’t have the time… can you take some pictures for me, Oda-P?”

001

He got me some pictures of the warehouse!

There are piles and piles of cardboard boxes reaching the ceiling – and all of them are filled with Saber and her motorbike!

Now I’m even more depressed that I didn’t get to go with them!!

002

The truck is packed up and ready to go!

Lots of people want to get hold of this figure, so the size of the truck is really impressive! A big thanks to all the workers at the warehouse for loading all those boxes up!
003

Saber is watching over the warehouse!

All the boxes were successfully sent out yesterday thanks to her watchful gaze! One of them was also brought back to the offices for me to do my product review!!

005
From Fate/Zero:
Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier!

From the popular anime series ‘Fate/Zero’ comes this 1/8th scale figure of the servant that Kiritsugu Emiya makes a contract with, Saber.

The figure’s pose is based on an illustration that featured in the original novel for the series, in which Saber is riding her motorbike while holding Excalibur in one hand – a pose that truly captures her fighting spirit as she rides into battle!

To summarize my feelings for the figure…
You’ll regret it if you miss out on this one!

It’s really hard to believe this is the final product and not the prototype – the manufacturing team has done an incredible job!! I literally got goosebumps when I saw her… she is just that amazing!

006

The reverse side looks like this!

She looks great no matter what angle you choose to look at her from! You can’t help but spin the base around to see her from all sides!

Instead of just placing her in a display case I think you should keep her beside you on your desk to spin her around once in awhile and see her at every angle possible!

The bike itself is very long so these pictures make her look much smaller than she really is! Let me take a closer look at each section now, in the hopes that will give you a better opinion of how amazing the figure is.

Let’s take a look at Saber herself first!

Her expression is amazing!!

Even zoomed in this much I can’t find a single fault in that expression – the sculpting of the hair and jacket really makes it seem like the figure is in mid-motion!

008

Her lovely hip-line!

Pay special attention to just how round her bottom looks! I think it’s the part of the figure that really shows off Saber’s feminine side the most! It looks like it would be soft if you were to touch it… unfortunately it isn’t, I tried :P

009

The seat makes use of a soft material!

At first Oda-P and Tsukki from the manufacturing team were discussing that the figure would look strange of Saber was ‘floating’ above either the pedal, the seat or the ground. The first way to avoid this was by putting a tab on the figure to hold her in place, but they didn’t want to have to place a tab on Saber’s bottom to connect her to the seat, nor make the seat dented.

That’s when Tsukki came up with the idea to make the seat from a softer material instead – that allows all the three parts to be put together easily and keep Saber touching all three points while still keeping the shape of the seat normal. Great job, Tsukki!!

012

The engine section is so intricate!

As I mentioned with Nendoroid Saber, mechanical sections like this on figures tend to look odd more often than not – but as you can see this engine looks just like a real motorbike’s engine!

I can’t imagine how they managed to put together all the tiny parts like each of those screws with such amazing detail and accuracy!

010

The suspension and exhaust!

If you feel the exhaust with the tip of your finger it really feels like metal!! According to Tsukki the metallic parts are made from ABS with a metallic coating to create a very realistic appearance and feel!

The springs also look just like real springs, but they don’t expand and contract like a normal spring would. (they looked so real, I had to try!)

019

The cowl has a shiny gradient effect!

The shininess here is a different kind compared to the exhaust – it is less evident but also looks stunning! The bike has a very streamlined shape, so if you change the angle or lighting in just the slightest way the shine looks completely different!

013

A long-angle shot!

I recommend using a long angle like this when you want a picture that captures the feeling of the scene. Looking at this photo really makes the bike and Saber look so heavy and realistic, it’s hard to think she is just a figure!

This figure in particular really has been so much fun to photograph, I ended up taking way too many photos of her…

014

I also love the creases in her jacket!

The way it seems to be fluttering in the wind is amazing in itself, but just look at the creases on her upper arm! They are incredible!!

015

A close-up on the tires and base!

The tires don’t actually spin, but they do have a kind of rubbery feel to them!! It’s amazing how realistic they can become just through different materials and paint…

The base is modeled off the scene from the anime where Saber slid along the road to a halt! A big thank you to Kondo-san from ufotable for all the help with that!

017
Now to play around a bit with parts from other figures!
Here she is holding Invisible Air!!

This is the sword that Saber ~Triumphant Excalibur~ is holding! Although the Triumphant Excalibur figure is a 1/7th scale and this Saber is a 1/8th scale figure it doesn’t look too out of place when she holds it instead. This recreates the scene from the anime perfectly!!

018

figma Saber Zero can sit behind her!

I’m sure a lot of you have thought about putting other figures on the bike, so here is a figma size comparison! Obviously the size doesn’t quite match up, but I think you could fit three figmas on the bike at once! :P

004

My best photo for today!

Saber and her bike are not stuck together, so you can remove Saber and display her on her own! If you put Excalibur in the hand that would normally be holding the handle bars then it just looks like she is swinging the sword around instead – I think it looks great!!

016
From Fate/Zero:
Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier!

She is being shipped out today!!

Apologies for the long wait, but you’ll be able to get your hands on her soon!! This is definitely a product that Good Smile has worked hard to release in the best possible quality, so I hope fans will enjoy having her on display!!

Be sure to contact our partner shops if you have any sales or preorder queries!

But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
