Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I’ve always has a bit of a secret interest in chess. I wish I could get the change to say “checkmate” one day…
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a a look at…
The 1/8th Scale Shiro! ☆
From the “No Game No Life” film that starts in Japan this weekend comes a scale figure of Shiro! The transparent, flowing image of the original illustration has been captured…
▲ The little sticking out tongue is so cute!!
Each and every strand of her hair has been sculpted in such detail!
Not to mention the way the colors differ depending on the angle you look from!
The appearance of the gradient has been carefully calculated from each angle…
To faithfully preserve the beautiful colors of her hair no matter what angle you look from! (｀；ω；´)
The figure has been sculpted by Good Smile Company’s Kataharaitashi! The same sculptor who has worked on various Nendoroids such as Nendoroid Elsa, as well as scale figures such as Nico Yazawa: Picnic Girl!
All the figures have the feeling of “motion” captured so beautifully!
The paintwork was by Good Smile Company’s Ekoshi! ♡
Working with colors to bring a sculpt to life is not an easy task, but all the figure by Ekoshi have such a lively, beautiful feeling about them!!
Anyway, let’s get back to Shiro! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟヽ 三 ﾉﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
▲ Look at the creases in her skirt and shiny look of her socks! ♪
The cards all floating around Shiro are of course attached to her hair, but the positions are very carefully thought out so that it all looks perfectly natural and they really do look like they are floating in the air around her! ヽ(ﾟ◇ﾟ )ﾉ
A quick size comparison with an iPhone6!
The figure is only 1/8th scale, but the impressive volume of the hair gives an impressive size, and the atmosphere of the series is captured in the base so effectively!! There is so much to enjoy at once! I only noted the cards above, but there are also chess pieces at the bottom of the base!
They are all very carefully positioned and sculpted with a specific feeling of motion to all come together and complete the dynamic appearance of the figure!
I alerady touched on the cute sticking-out tongue earlier, but also note the dainty hand holding the chess pieces! ★
Even her fingernails have each been carefully sculpted!
Plus each of her nails are also painted with a slightly different color!! The fact that they are sculpted slightly grown out is also so amazing! _:(´ཀ`」∠):_
The product planner who is also a big fan of the series, Hamako, made some playing cards based on the design of the figure! I decided to borrow them and use them for an image cut! ★
▲ Some glass chess pieces as well! ♪
It really is one of those figures that can be enjoyed from absolutely any angle!! You won’t be disappointed if you choose to add her to your collection!! I highly recommend it!
The 1/8th Scale Figure Shiro!
She’ll be up for preorder tomorrow!
Be sure to keep your eyes on the Good Smile Company website for more information! Plus Shiro is not the only figure going up for preorder tomorrow…
“You would challenge me to a game? With human bodies?”
Even in Nendoroid size, the gradient color of her hair has been faithfully preserved! ♪
▲Her wings are fitted with joints to be placed at various different angles!
Along with the intelligent looking smile above, she also comes with a much colder looking smile! (´□｀｡)
▲ She also comes a book too!
Covering her mouth up makes for a rather different feel!
Moving on to her third face plate… ♡
An excited expression unable to control her desires!
The sparkly eyes are so amazing!! You’ll also notice that she is so excited she is even drooling!! ((´д`●))三((●´д`))
Plus if we look down at her feet…
It’s a little hard to see, but look at those lovely Nendoroid thighs!! (灬ºωº灬)
Plus if we look at the tablet she is holding…
You can see she is in fact looking at Nendoroid Shiro and Sora’s product page on the GSC site!!
