figFIX Shimakaze: Half-Damage ver.

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I still haven’t had Tsukimi dango or Tsukimi sake… (´・ω・`)I think I’ll have own little moon-viewing party sometime!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at Max Factory’s…
figFIX Shimakaze: Half-Damage ver.!

 
The very first in the fixFIX series of figma-sized statue figures comes Shimakaze from Kantai Collection -KanColle- in her half-damage version!
Her ripped clothes an knee socks all preserved in detail and three damaged Rensouhou-chans are also included to display beside her!Be sure to display her alongside her figma counterpart, or with other figma figures in the KanColle series!

Zekamashi-chaaaan! [╹△╹。]
The half damaged version of Zekamashi-chan is the very first to join Max Factory’s new figFIX series!

But what exactly is the figFIX series?

Let me explain that quickly! (`・ω・´)


What is figFIX?

The figma series was created under the concept of articulated figures that still looked great. The figFIX series is a new collectible series of figures that is a spin-off of the figma series – a series that removed the articulated aspect of figmas but instead places them in great fixed poses!

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 very 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 makes use of the same joint as the figma series, allowing for some interesting display possibilities for fans to play around with as well!

To summarize…
It’s a new series of scale figures from Max Factory that are the same size as figmas!
The first of which is this…

figFIX Shimakaze: Half-Damage ver.!
Which also comes with three Rensouhou-chans! ♪

Let’s take a closer look at each of them!
– Rensouhou-chan (Large) –

Clearly in despair at Zekamashi-chan’s defeat!

– Rensouhou-chan (Medium) –

His expression filled with satisfaction!

– Rensouhou-chan (Small) –

Posed as if jumping through the air!
Each of them are held in place with props that attach to Zekamashi-chan’s base!

They’re all so adorable!
Each of their necks are also slightly turnable allowing you to change the nuance ever so slightly! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Now let’s take a look at Zekamashi-chan herself!

Everything down to the rips in her knee-high stockings, snapped panty string and anchor are all faithfully included!

The torn up ribbon in her hair and mini-shirt falling down her hips also look amazing!

Everything about her looks amazing!! (゚A゚;)

What joints there are are made completely invisible, so it really is just like a smaller scale figure! The arms and legs look great, and the bare skin looks so touchable! ♥
Not to mention the incredible expression!

It’s lovely!! ヾ(。´Д`。)ノ
I can just hear her voice saying “Noo…! I didn’t think I’d ever get hit…!” when I see her looking down at me!
Let’s take a look from behind!

Oooooohhhh!!(*´▽`*)

Just look at the curves on that bottom!
That’s not to say figma Shimakaze didn’t have a lovely bottom, but the removal of any need for joints definitely allows for a much sexier look!

Speaking of sexy… this area is hard to ignore! <◯><◯>!!!

So…very…CLOSE!


This kind of design really makes you want to go for those low angles… it seems like you might just be able to see more if you do!

figFix shares the same design for expressions with the figma series, so the real new thing about them is of course the body! As you can see – the detail on the body is intricate down to each little nook and cranny! This photo was perhaps a little too focused on her lovely chest that her belly button is really out of focus, but on the actual figure you an see it nice and clearly!

All the details that were difficult to keep together with figma joints have been included!

There are so many angles you can enjoy her from!
The first of Max Factory’s new figure series!

An upset looking expression with her eyes looking to the left!

Her mouth looks so adorable!!
