Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I can’t remember the last time I tried looking for a four-leaf clover. I still remember giving up on finding one and instead making a flower crown out of white clovers when I was much younger!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
The 1/8th Scale….
“My name is Monoyoshi Sadamune! Allow me to bring you some good luck!”
A scale figure of the short sword that brings good luck and likes to help out – Monoyoshi Sadamune! ♡
The white areas of his outfit have feature a lovely pearl paint that makes him stand out so beautifully. The frills on his collar, the unique sleeves and creases all over the outfit have all been sculpted so carefully to create this light, gentle sculpt that suits Monoyoshi so very well!
The slightest little ups and downs have been faithfully sculpted on areas such as the armor on his shoulders and arms, and the black areas contrast so nicely with the white. Once the gold areas are added in as well the whole design jumps to live with such a majestic, gorgeous appearance! ♪
This is how he looks from the back!
Such soft, silky looking hair and a beautiful body line…!
While the figure is in a rather simple standing pose, the detail put into the outfit, accessories and pose create a lovely dynamic effect that makes the figure look like it could just jump to life! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
▲ Personally I love the slack area of hit skirt around the hips!
All the small details of his hair have also been included, from the way each of the curls comes out to the soft, fine appearance of the hair! Such a pleasure to look at! ♡
▲ The color of the hair is so perfect from this angle
Another detail that can’t be ignored… (/ω＼)
The pattern of the fabric around his legs!
The original design from the illustration has been captured in perfect details, plus you can see the pattern all the way to the back as well! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
I get the feeling this is going to be quite a mission for mass production!
Another impressive detail is the attention to detail of the boots! The way they are tied up makes it really look like the laces are pulling tightly on the lovely white boots, and the overall sculpt really makes you imagine that their is a foot inside the shoes!
▲ The slightly loose look of the socks too!!
When it comes to transforming an illustration into a figure it can often be very difficult to keep the same feeling of the illustration… but that is one thing that Max Factory’s sculptor Nanako is amazing at accomplishing!
The previously released Tsurumaru Kuninaga was also sculpted by Nanako, and also captured the atmosphere so perfectly! ヽ(*´Д｀*)ﾉ

Anyway, let’s get back to Monoyoshi with a closer up of his lovely face! ♪
Such an innocent, polite looking smile that captures his personality so nicely!! I feel luckier just knowing he is standing beside me looking on with this expression! (´□｀｡)
Be sure the prince of good luck to your collection and enjoy him from any angle you please!
He is currently up for preorder! ♥
Plus, orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Monoyoshi Sadamune Sword Charm as a bonus! Be sure to consider it when preordering!
