It seems Nitouhei isn’t at his desk, so I I’m guessing he won’t mind if I just borrow this prototype quickly… 😛
I’m a member of the web team, and we sit right next to Max Factory’s planning team! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
This makes it so nice and easy to get hold of Max Factory prototypes when I need to! It’s also really nice to be beside them as they have a kind-of relaxing aura about them that seems to rub off on everyone else around them…
I’m pretty sure that aura will also stop them getting angry if I quickly borrow this prototype… at least I hope so!! (`･ω･´)
From Puella Magi Madoka Magica:
figma Ultimate Madoka!
From the hit anime series ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica’ comes a figma of the of the final form that Madoka Kaname took in the final episode of the series, when her wish was granted and she became a Puella Magi – Ultimate Madoka!
Just look at the outstanding quality!! (ﾟ∀ﾟ≡ﾟ∀ﾟ)
This picture is actually magnified quite a lot and she still looks incredible!
This is how she looks from the back!
She has that epic feeling about her that makes her seem like some kind of final boss in a game or something! The same pearl paintwork seen on both the scale figure and the Nendoroid is also used on the figma!
But even though she looks amazing, she is still super easy to pose!!
You can easily display her in all sorts of poses! There are even joints located in her giant dress allowing you to pose it billowing out like this!
She comes with a serious expression, bow and arrow!
As I’ve said before, this is definitely the most well-known pose for Ultimate Madoka! It’s quite strange how when I saw the Nendoroid in this pose I was filled with love for how cute she looked, but getting the figma into the pose actually takes some posing skill. It’s so much fun to slowly but surely create the pose you want – I felt really proud when I completed this pose!
My very own original pose!
I think I deserve a pat on the back for this one, I really think it came out nicely! This is of course the prototype, so I couldn’t do any fancy acrobatic poses… I actually made this pose just by moving the shoulders, elbows and knees!
It’s amazing how dynamic she looks – I can almost see her just springing to life right in front of me! I can’t wait to play around with the actual release when I won’t need to worry too much about breaking anything… 😛
The gentle smiling face is also included!
She only comes with these two expressions, but I think it’s more than enough!
Just like the Nendoroid, her wings are actually attached to the reverse side of her hair, allowing you to easily pose them at all sorts of different angles! In the photo above you can see the wings can be posed very high up – she has been very carefully designed to ensure that the hair never gets in the way!
A cuter, more magical girl-like pose!
It’s really so easy to make lovely poses like this with the figma series! The arm of the stand connects to her back behind the dress, and while it does keep her very stable, it also makes is very easy to change the angles around!
Plus you get to stare into her depths of space inside her dress whenever you want to attach the stand! 😛
Displayed with the big version!
She’s quite small when compared to the 1/8th scale version, but just look how similar she looks even as a figma!! Max Factory have really outdone themselves this time around!!
