1/8th Scale Suruga Kanbaru

It’s already Friday!
 
After the hectic weekend of WonFes I really can’t wait to relax this weekend!

001

But the manufacturing team can’t relax even after WonFes!

They still need to send out brand new GSC figures like this one so they can reach the stores in time! But that also means I have to do a review of the wonderful figures as well – so today we’ll be looking at this wonderful figure!

002

The third in the 1/8th Scale Bakemonogatari Series:

Suruga Kanbaru!

She is from the anime Bakemonogatari, and follows on from the already released figures of Hitagi Senjougahara and Nadeko Sengoku!

      ____
   /::::::─三三─\
 /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\  “W-Whoa…
|:::::::::::(__人__)::|   It’s finally out as a real product!”
\:::::::::   |r┬-|   /
 ノ::::::::::  `ー’´ \

It’s the same amazing quality as the rest of the series!!
I am a Kanbaru fan, but I really do recommend this to fans and non fans of her! It’s such an amazing figure!
003

This is how she looks from the back!

Not that you can see much of her – but you do get a nice look at the huge base filled with books! You can even see the little colored tags that Kanbaru leaves in the books!!

006

You can move Kanbaru around!

There isn’t any specific part that Kanbaru clicks onto – you just need to position her as you please! As you can see here, I decided to put her on the top of the pile of books instead

004

A closer look at the amazing base!

I don’t know if you can really call this a base – it’s so amazing it’s almost like another figure in itself. ^^;

Every single book is painted separately!

Plus they even use a gradient!

When working on the original master design for the figure I remember that there was a lot of sweat and tears put into painting the books – it’s hard to imagine that there have now been thousands of them made in a factory! Those who want to find out more about the painting process, take a look at the blog below:

1/8th Scale Hitagi Senjougahara (Part 3)

005

Such a content expression!!

There are really not many figures that have a downward glance like this one, it works very well for Kanbaru! The delicate hand holding the book, her arm resting on the books beside her and her bountiful bosom are all super sexy!!

007

Her beautiful, long and slim legs!

Just look at those beautiful calves! You can tell why she is the ace of the basketball team with legs like these! Plus the best thing about this photo is the way it seems like she is looking down at you!

008

Something I wanted to do, but never could with the master figure!

Stack the books up together!

      ____
   :/      \:
  :/   ─  ─  \:    ”Ooh, it gets up pretty high!”
:/    <●> <●> \:
:|     (__人__)  |:
:\     |r┬-|   _/:
: ノ     `ー’´   \ :

The books can all be removed from the stand so you can even do things like this! (The basketball can also be removed, but it is attached by a prong, it doesn’t just stay by itself.)

009

This one came out as a strangely sexy picture!

The desk and chair come from the forth in the Bakemonogatari figure series – Tsubasa Hanekawa – you can combine the two to create something like this! The fact that they are all the same scale makes it so easy to do things like this!

010

The third in the 1/8th Scale Bakemonogatari Series:

Suruga Kanbaru!

It seems the planning team managed to clean up all the event goods yesterday! Apparently the new employees here at GSC have excellent cleaning up and organizing skills! Yay! 😛

And on that table tennis table, I found this!!

002

A new figure from Max Factory…

Asuka Langley Shikinami!

From the movie ‘Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance’ is a new figure of the famous pilot of EVA2, posed with the embarrassed look she gave when she first wore her new test plugsuit!

        ____

 ̄ \__、(“二)。゚ /。・イハ 、\、l二二l二二  _|_|__|_

Indeed it is!
A nice big 1/6th scale figure of her!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Asuka’s long, beautiful hair has all been sculpted absolutely wonderfully! I’m sure some of you will have already guessed, but the sculptor of this figure was the same in charge of the 1/6th Scale Mari Illustrious Makinami, Chieri!

004

Such a little devilish expression and pose!

But that’s just what makes her adorable! This angle has a really ‘Asuka’ feeling about it – it really captures her perfectly!

005

The test plugsuit!

That transparent paint really does justice in times like these! Excellent work from Max Factory once again! 😛

006

The suit shows so much… and yet just not enough!

But, as I’ve said before, that’s just what makes it sexy! The fact that you can just not see what you want to see is part of the reason the figure has such an erotic feeling to it!

007

There are little spikes on her shoe soles!

They must be to avoid slipping an falling! If you look up close you can also see the design on the sole has carefully been sculpted in as well! 1/6th scale adds even more detail then we normally see!

008

My favorite photo this time around!

Chieri-san’s sculpting really is incredible!! I really like this figure so much that it’s going to be hard to part with it!! Everything is just so finely sculpted – no matter where you look it is simply amazing! The first time I saw it I really didn’t think it could have been sculpted by anything but a machine – it’s just too perfect! Great job, Chieri-san!

GSC Offices 2nd Floor!

Everyone is getting ready for WonFes!!

As soon as the offices get this messy it’s a clear sign that an event is close. 😛

There are just two days left until WonFes!!

Thus the offices are a complete battle zone at the moment…

Anyway, here is a quick photo spree of the sculptor’s area just before WonFes!!

All of the figures in these pictures will have some quick final touches done by the sculptors, and then will be displayed at…

The Makuhari Messe on 24th July (Sun), at the ‘WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 14 ‘ Booth!

If you can, be sure to stop by and take a look!

Don’t worry, you can also get a look at them from twitter! It’s probably a good idea to follow the following accounts:

Gumako General Announcements!

Mikatan Goodsmile Products!

Second Private Max Factory Products!

There will also be a Nico live tomorrow!

Although, at the moment the time is unconfirmed… I think it’ll be at around 15:00, but I’ll keep you updated via twitter.

Yet another notice!

004
There will be a live broadcast on the event day as well!!

Morning to Morning Live WonHobby 10!

You can watch the events of the stage at WonFes right from home during the afternoon, and the evening will be filled with a variety of discussions. It’s completely free, so do drop by and take a look! (It is in Japanese, however :P)

– Afternoon –

http://live.nicovideo.jp/gate/lv56646558

There will be talks with JAM Project’s Hironobu Kageyama, Masami Okui and various other voice actors, as well as a live by the Milky Holmes girls! It’s a great way to experience WonFes if you can’t make it there yourself!

– Evening –

http://live.nicovideo.jp/gate/lv56648029

As a side note, this time the evening broadcast…

Will be live from Tokyo Tower!

I’m serious! Isn’t that amazing!! There were comments passed around saying it should be done somewhere different for once, and somehow that ended up being Tokyo Tower! xD

It is also the very last day that there will be analogue broadcasting in Japan! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

I think it’s strangely appropriate to have an internet based live broadcast to celebrate that day! I hope you’ll come and enjoy the evening with us!

The timetable can be found here:
http://www.whl4u.jp/live.html


But there is still even more news!

003

The new Snow Miku outfit designs have been submitted at PIAPRO!

Thanks to everyone who sent in their designs – there were some amazing ideas! We’ve had a look at all of them, and in the end Crypton picked two they liked, and GSC picked two.

These are the four that were selected!

004

o0515055911362817729

001

003
The 2012 Nendoroid Snow Miku design will be one of the above!

In the evening part of the live broadcast, we will let everyone vote on which they like!

You get to decide which one!

 
Ooooh! It’s a pity I can’t just pick the one I want 😛 But the one that is chosen really will be made into a figure – so it’s definitely best to let you guys choose! Takanon will be in charge of the sculpting, so he will also be watching in suspense… 😛

You can find out more about the illustrators of the above designs at the link below:

http://piapro.jp/static/?view=2012yukimiku

The voting will commence at around 23:00~23:20!

Don’t miss out on adding in your vote!

Anyway, it’s been a lot of news to take in, so that’s it for now!

Yep, they’re all done and ready for a review!
Plus they will be up for preorder as of tomorrow!

I’ve been wanting to review these for absolutely ages now, so I’m going to cover each figure one by one – there are a few more images than usual, so be prepared! 😛

 

001

Let’s start with the Puella Magi versions!

For those who don’t know, you can either buy single Nendoroid Petites for 500JPY, or you can buy a box set of twelve instead!

This Puella Magi Madoka Magica set comes with 10 figures as well as one secret figure to collect!
Five of those are the figures you see here – all in their Puella Magi outfits.

As always, I’m absolutely amazed at how detailed the work is on such tiny figures…

 

002

Right, let’s take a quick look at each of them!

Madoka Kaname! (Puella Magi)

Madoka in her adorable magical girl outfit featuring that lovely frilly skirt! Tiny parts like the ribbons on her dress, complicated shoes and lines on her skirt must have been very difficult to sculpt so tiny! QB is also super tiny and hanging off her arm – also super cute! ^^

 

003

Sayaka Miki! (Puella Magi)

There are actually a lot of Goodsmile staff members that really love Sayaka!! I believe that this Nendo Petite of her is the first figure that has featured her in her Puella Magi outfit. I personally really like the trailing cape behind her as well as the pose! It’s such a pleasure to look at!

004

Homura Akemi!
(Puella Magi)

Homuhomu taking a sidelong glance as she looks as stunning as ever! Of course the Soul Gem on her left hand is there as well! (It has a diameter of about 1.5mm!)

 

005

Mami Tomoe! (Puella Magi)

Her outfit and twirled hair all looks great in Nendo Petite form! It’s really incredible how well her hair accessory came out as well – it’s so tiny, but it looks identical to the one from the anime! Her skirt is also really nicely done – I kept having to retake photos as each time I did the new picture looked even better!

And by the way, whilst I’m sure Madoka fans will have noticed already…

001

The Nendos are all based off the poses from this image!

        ____
        /     \     ”Ehhh?
     /:::::::─三三─\     What about Kyouko! Where is she!!?”

| | | ⌒ ーnnn ,≦`Vヾ  ヾ ≧  |_|___________|
 ̄ \__、(“二)。゚ /。・イハ 、\、l二二l二二  _|_|__|_

Hold on! She’s coming!  Just scroll down a little bit further!

 

006

Kyouko Sakura!(Puella Magi)

We would never leave her out of the line-up! It also seems like she is the one and only that comes holding a weapon! Her ponytail is fitted with a joint so you can move it left and right as well.

 

007

Moving on, the girls in their uniforms!

Well, except for Kyouko, seen she doesn’t wear a uniform – but she comes in her casual clothes! These five combined with the five above make up the ten figures in the set – then there is still one secret extra which you’ll have to find yourself!  (To be honest, I’ve never even seen it! :P) A lot of work has been put into these five as well though – even the hair on them has been changed so they are not the same as the Puella Magi versions of the girls!

 

008

Madoka Kaname! (School Uniform)

Once again QB is included with Madoka – this time being held by her with both arms – he is so cute!! You don’t see Madoka smiling when wearing her school uniform all that often, but smiles always look good on girls, don’t they? ^^

 

011

Sayaka Miki! (School Uniform)

Plus as an added bonus, this version of Sayaka comes with a little sitting version of QB!  You have to remember that all these images are making them look much bigger than they really are – when you see just how tiny this QB is you’ll be amazed! 😛

011

Homura Akemi!
(School Uniform)

Homuhomu with her braided hair and red-framed glasses! I absolutely love this pose with her hand near her mouth and an embarrassed smile on her face! I hope all Homuhomu fans will be able to get their hands on the Puella Magi version as well as this version and display them together!

 

009

Mami Tomoe! (School Uniform)

A very fitting expression and pose for the mature Mami-san! It’s strange how charming she looks even as a Nendo Petite. I’m not sure why, but she also has a very unique feeling to her with this pose, it feels very fresh to look at!

 

013

Kyouko Sakura! (Casual Clothes)

Kyouko comes in her hotpants and jacket instead of a school uniform like the others! The little peek at her belly button and even the delicious looking bar of something in her hands are all shrunk down to Nendo Petite size! Plus that expression is so ideal for Kyouko that it’s almost scary… in a great way of course!!

 

014

All ten above will be in the set along with a single secret character, totaling eleven figures to collect! Plus they are just 500JPY each! \o/
For those who think it’s tedious to buy them one by one, or those who want to preorder – you can buy a box set of them that will include twelve figures, just speak with your local store!

1/1 Scale Kyubey Soft Vinyl Figure

Something… is standing at the entrance to the Madoka Cafe!

As I mentioned last week, today’s review will be of this giant!

And when I say giant… I mean GIANT! 😛

If you just catch a glimpse of it you could easily mistake it for a real little animal! It’s amazing to think that it’s actually a figure! Let me pick him up and take him off to my own desk to play around with now!

002

One of the WonFes Limited Edition Products,

Kyubey Soft Vinyl Figure!

Kyubey is the magical creature that grants girls wishes if they make a contract with him and become magical girls – he is from the popular anime called Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

This is an incredible 1/1 scale figure of the little creature!

I believe this is actually Goodsmile Company’s first 1/1 scale product!

008

This is how he looks from the back!

His tail looks like a rugby ball from this angle! 😛 His tail also has it’s own little stand to avoid the paint rubbing off.It’s also posable so you can have it standing up like this, or at a different angle.

004

He is made from sofy vinyl!

Unlike other materials it doesn’t break easily, so you don’t have to be too careful with where you put him!

Size comparison with a person!

He really is huge! 😛

It really looks just like a little animal! It’s the perfect pet for a house that isn’t allowed pets! ^^

011

A Nendoroid to compare sizes!

Here you can see the figure I reviewed last week, Nendoroid Madoka! These are the two GSC products that will be on sale at WonFes!

Nendoroid sized QB with giant QB!

Put a collar on and make him your pet!

Seriously! You just need yo put some wheels beneath him and then you can really walk him around!

I’m sure a lot of you are a little worried about that…

But don’t worry! We have had the same worries and come up with a solution!!

013

This is how they will be sold at the event!

The QB Box is placed inside the standard box which has handles attached for easier carrying!

As a side note, he weighs 3kg! Pretty heavy!

007

Maybe you can carry it like so?

It might make it easier to carry, but at the same time the straps might break, which will make it even harder… so I don’t really recommend trying it. ^^;

If you’re resolving to that there is one more option!…

There will be a delivery service at WonFes!

The #4 hall where you can pick up QB will also have a Sagawa Express corner and they will happily deliver it to your home, so if you’re not confident in carrying him home yourself just head that way!

9 days until WonFes!

Gumako has finally started her countdown on twitter… as soon as she starts we all know that there is no getting away from it anymore! 😛

001

And the production team is sending in the samples!

There seem to be some wonderful things piling up on Tsukki’s desk! I’m sure the giant creature he is holding the tail of is of great interest to you all, but today we’re going to be looking at the box next to it!

003

One of the WonFes Limited Edition Products:

Nendoroid Madoka Kaname:

School Uniform Ver.!

Madoka is from the popular anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and comes wearing her school uniform from Mitakihara middle school in the special Wonder Festival Limited Edition version, which will be on sale at the ‘WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 14’ booth at the 2011 Summer Wonder Festival taking place on the 24th July! (Sunday)

It is in fact the first Madoka Magica Nendoroid that will be available to take home!

002

This is how the packaging looks!

She comes with three expressions, as well as arm parts holding Kyubey and a couple of other extras, all different from the standard Puella Magi version of Nendoroid Madoka.

004

This is how she looks from the back!

Her twin-tail hair is fitted with Nendoroid joints so it can be moved around, allowing you to put it in the position that suits your pose! The big red ribbons in her hair are also lovely!

005

This version also comes with Kyubey!

        ____

To those getting upset about that particular point – they are different versions of Kyubey too! This version is standing up while the other was in a sitting position!

Just look at his front paw! It’s so cute!!

011

You can also pose her holding onto QB!

You just to remove QB’s head from the standing QB and place it onto the other body in order to create this pose!

Aww, the paws in this version are just as cute!
The way his stomach is pushed outward with his paws apart – it’s just too adorable!

Moving onto her expressions – a frightened face!!

You can’t have a Madoka in her school uniform without this expression! It’ll be great to pose this together with Nendoroid Homura-chan and Nendoroid Mami!

012

She also just has to have a crying expression!

      ____
     /_ノ ‘ ヽ_\
   / (≡)   (≡) \   ”A crying face?
  /::⌒(__人__)⌒::\    I want that for the Puella Magi version!”
  |     |r┬-|     |
  \      `ー’´     / 
  ノ            \

Which you can see above! 😛 The only part of Madoka from this version is the face – all the other parts are from the Puella Magi version of Madoka, which you’ll have to get separately! (sorry!)

But her expressions seem to fit a lot of Nendoroid, so you should be able to play around with them a bit!

008

Let’s give Mami-san the school uniform to try on!

The head is of course Mami-san’s, the body is from today’s Madoka figure and the legs are Yui Hirasawa’s! Maybe it’s just me, but I think it works very well together! 😛

Nendoroid Mami, is now available for preorder!

Those buying it at the event – make sure you’re prepared to carry this! A review of Kyubey will be coming next Tuesday! Watch out for it!
 

 
Anyway that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week!!

WonFes is so soon! I can’t believe how it snuck up on us!
