It’s not the one you see in this photo, it’s one that seems really difficult to get hold of… it’s amazing how fun it can be to pursue something you really want to get hold of! 😛

Today I’ll be playing with a brand new prototype to hopefully bring some of that fun to all of you!! (`・ω・´)


Millhiore F. Biscotti!

A second season of the anime has been announced!
DOG DAYS is a fantasy series set in the mystical world of Flonyard. Millhiore is the Princess of Biscotti Republic in this world, and now she is getting her very own 1/8th scale figure!

You did! Nendoroid Millhi is currently up for preorders!

As you can see above, The Nendoroid even comes with her giant bird mount! I’m sure that the Nendoroid would look great displayed next to the 1/8th scale figure we’ll be looking at today!


This is how she looks from the back!

She is posed as if the wind is blowing on her – lifting up her skirt, and blowing her hair and ribbons behind her! The photo is at just the perfect angle to prevent you from seeing too much! 😛

It’s such a simple pose, and yet it has such a lovely dynamic feeling to it. Even the reverse side of the skirt is fully painted, as you can see!


A close-up on her chest!

The design of her outfit is very detailed, but as you can see it has been faithfully converted to figure form! The two different parts of the sleeve you can just see on the left are also very finely detailed and a pleasure to look at!


Her skirt is absolutely stunning!

The long wavy feeling of the skirt really is beautiful!! The spiky looking parts on the gloves and edge of the skirt are also a wonderful touch – each of them features a lovely subtle gradient of pink and white.

It’s the small little details like that which really bring out the high quality of the figure as a whole! (Although I think that means it also brings up the cost. ^^;)


A smile that’ll bring a smile to your face!
Those beautiful eyes also look great – the face as a whole just shines radiantly!

Behind the knees!

Along with being very finely detailed, she also has a very ladylike figure!! That rounded line of her legs is particularly lovely!

A little unrelated, but I’m sure many of you remember me saying I love bare feet… but on all the figures recently I’ve started to love boots as well! Maybe it’s because Winter is on the way… 😛


Even a gradient on the fingertips!
It really is so beautifully sculpted and painted…

What?! Really?!


Oooh! This is the 3D Data!

You can really tell this is exactly what the figure is based on – it’s identical!
Although there were apparently all sorts of problems that got in the way of converting the 3D data into an actual figure… but I’ll go into that with more detail on Friday. I think it’ll be quite an interesting article, so do take a look!
