Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Yesterday I spilt a huge bottle of tea on my laptop’s keyboard… I’m using a replacement PC for the time being, but all my settings are missing making it rather difficult!
But anyway! Today I’m going to be taking a look at:
|From the ‘Monogatari’ anime series comes a figFIX of the once legendary vampire, Shinobu Oshino! A faithful rendition of Shinobu’s well-known sitting pose from the classroom corner.
Her included expression is a cold sideways glance, that captures the vampire inside her perfectly! Her helmet can be attached and removed and her expression parts can be swapped with figma Shinobu Oshino for even more options! (sold separately)
Just look at that lovely glare!!!
The second figure to join Max Factory’s new figFIX line of figures! ♪
The planner of the the figure (IG Sakai: @) really wanted to have Shinobu available in her sitting pose as well!!
The helmet can be removed! ♪
The way she is sitting with her hands under her legs is so adorable! The frills on the inner side of her one piece are also very cute!
This is how she looks from the back! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
The cute little tufts of hair sticking out the sides about her ear are faithfully included! Plus the flow of the fabric and creases of her pink one-piece are fantastic! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
The detail is enough to make you forget that she is only around 1/12th scale in size! Here she is compared with an iPhone5 for comparison!
Cute and compact!
She really is a palm-size figure! (； ・`д・´)
Looking up close you’ll even notice the angle her toes are open at differ from left and right!
She is just shining with attention to detail!! (‘-’*)(,_,*)(‘-’*)(,_,*)
I must however explain once again what figFIX is for those who might have missed out last time!
|A New Collectible Figure Series based on the figma series
The figFIX series of figures is the same size as figmas (around 1/12th scale) so they can easily be displayed together, but they are fixed in a specific and well-known pose of each character, allowing for a more faithful representation as well as a reasonable price! The series allows the skilled craftsmen of Max Factory to put their skills to work on more delicate sculpting and paintwork for fans to enjoy! The head part of figFIX figures make use of the same joint as the figma series, allowing for some interesting display possibilities for fans to play around with as well!
My favorite thing about them is that you can swap expressions with the figma of the same character, and since figma Shinobu was announced on the same day you can easily pick them both up for a whole range of new options!
For example, with the figma’s smiling face…
She’s so cute! An angel!!(Nope… vampire…)
Alternatively, the standard expression makes her stare at you eerily…
Those innocent eyes just suck me in… (/ω＼)
figFIX keep a bit of articulation on the neck part, which gives you a lot of different options as far as expressions go!
You can also use the figFIX expression on the figma! ★
I really can’t get enough of this glaring expression!! ε=(｡・д・｡)
I can just hear her voice playing through my head! ♪
Mix and match parts with figma Shinobu Oshino for all sorts of fun! ♥
She is up for preorder now!
Additionally, orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will receive a bonus Chair part! ♪
She looks so cute plonked down on the chair!!
However! The image above is actually of the figmaPLUS chair… the version that comes with Shinobu will be a special design based on the Monogatari series! The actual design will be added to the product page at a later date, so check back soon!
