Hi everyone! Suwabe (@gsc_suwabe) from the Corporate Planning Division here! Even though I don’t really intend to, I’m often told I have a smug look on my face…
The 1/8th Scale…
Yotsugi Ononoki DX!
The silent yet sharp-tongued Ononoki-chan as a 1/8th scale figure! Everything that makes her character has been preserved so well in the figure! The strange thingy on her head, the unique color of her bluish-greenish hair, somewhat expressionless face, eyes with such a lovely gradient, bright orange outfit that is sure to catch the eye, striped knee-high socks and even those yellow wellingtons! Every detail from head to toe has been faithfully recreated!
Plus as if Ononoki wasn’t cute enough by herself, the huge throne and all the little plushie dolls at her feet just add so much to the figure! The contrast between Ononoki-chan’s rather stiff expression and the cute, fluffy faces on the plushies is such a treat to the eyes! Not to mention the lovely mix of colors between the back of the throne, Ononoki’s outfit and the various plushies!
I’m sure there are many fans who already got a nice look at the painted prototype that was on display during WonFes, but now she is almost ready for preorders to start! ( `
I’ve covered most of my highlights on the figure with the rather long text above, so now we’re going to go into photo mode! I hope everyone enjoys!
▼ Let’s first take a look from different angles!
▼ Or from the left…
Looking at, taking photos of and talking about amazing figures like this one is always such a pleasure! (*´ω`*)
While I was taking the photos I talked to so many people that passed by about how cute she was! (*´ω`*)
I still remember when Ononoki-chan first appeared in the anime (I was still in college at the time!), I had a good, uplifting feeling about her that I could never really explain! To think that she would then come out as this lovely figure for me to review… I think my initial feeling about her was a premonition of this figure coming! Just look at how great she looks!
Before I took photos I tried to figure out where to focus on to show more of the details of the figure, and this is one of the areas that really stood out for me…
▼ The origami in her right hand!
One single folded origami crane lying in the hand of a listless arm. The crane was of course always in the original illustration, but somehow seeing it sculpted into the 3D world really makes it stand out in a special new way! It’s hard to explain exactly why, but it really looks lovely!
▼ Plushie Paradise at her feet!
Personally I love the amount of detail that has been put into the various plushies, but for those who think she will take up too much space or perhaps be a little too much over budget, we are also going to be selling a simple version without all the plushies!
You won’t regret it!
The blog will also be on break until Wednesday, so I’ll see you all again next week sometime!!
