The figure that debuted at the 2012 Wonder Festival…
Good Smile Company’s:
1/8th Scale Ultimate Madoka!

Even though she is a 1/8th scale, she looks enormous!
The blog has a set width for photos which is the same size I always use, but I’m not certain if the size is big enough to get the feeling of just how big this figure is! You need to compare it to the size of the monitor and the keyboard! But the size isn’t the only incredible thing about this lovely figure!
She looks incredible from any angle!
We were never able to show off the figure from every angle at the events she has been at, so today I’ll be taking a look at all sorts of different angles! The first time ever I’ll be looking from this many!
Let’s start on the left side!
I think this angle is my personal favorite! You can really see the way that the skirt opens up behind her from this angle – I definitely recommend it!！
A look directly from the left side!
Just look how big she is!! Plus look at the long flowing skirt and hair! It’s absolutely fantastic!!! ｡･ﾟ･(ﾉД`)･ﾟ･｡
The reverse left side!
If you like the wings on her back, then this angle is best! I can’t wait to see what this angle will look like once she is painted!!
Onto the back of the figure!
Just look at the amazing amount of detail and volume that skirt takes up!! It’s got a whole bunch of layers all expanding out further and further! The hair flowing out behind her is just as incredible!
The reverse right side!
From this side you get a good view of her nocking an arrow! Her slender back is also a very sexy sight from this angle!!
A direct look from the right!
Because of the way her body is twisted, this angle actually gives you a front look at her upper body. There is so much to look at – from her arms and waistline down to her belly! They all look so amazing!
Finally, a front right angle!
The bow just comes out in the front of this photo, so I think I got the perspective to come out nicely! You can see her whole body nicely as well – also a very nice angle in my opinion.
Back to the front view!

Normally when I’m taking photos of figures I find areas that I think will look good, or cute… but with Ultimate Madoka it doesn’t matter where I take photos! She always looks incredible!!
Let’s take a look at a few…! (`･ω･´)
Her waist and skirt!
The side of her face!
Often an angle that is considered taboo with figures, but Madoka looks lovely!
Her lovely thighs!

Sorry for having taking so long!! The sculpting is incredible quality as you can see, so just wait till you see the colored version – it won’t be long now!
- GSC Shanghai Diary #9 -
Dàjiā hǎo! This is Suzuki from Good Smile Shanghai!
Today we continue the Shanghai staff introductions with kiking, a sculptor!
Miku Hatsune: Cheerful Ver. was sculpted by him!
|I was born in Shanghai in August 1989. My hobbies are making models and spacing out. I’m really glad to have become a sculptor for GSC Shanghai. It’s great fun to be able to sculpt your favorite characters, and it’s even better when everyone loves the work you have done!
My ultimate goal is to become a stylish gentleman with a showcase of all my work built in my house, so I can look at them whenever I like! When I think of Japan I think of blue skies, everything looking very clean, everyone being so kind and absolutely delicious rice! (and cutlets!) Not to mention the holy land of Akihabara! Everything I could ever want is there for me!
Have any of you ever been to China before?
Anyway, that’s all! Bye! ^^
Normally kiking-kun is very shy, but when it comes to sculpting he is overflowing with inspiration and works on the smallest of details! He is currently working on something that I think everyone will should be looking forward to!
Anyway, Míngtiān jiàn!
Cheerful Miku was an absolutely stunning figure!!
I can’t wait to see his next piece of work! Good luck!! (`･ω･´)b
Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
