Harbour Princess

“I even told you… to stay away…”

Hi everyone! Suwabe (@gsc_suwabe)  from the Corporate Planning Division here!

As of today Kahotan is away on an international business trip, so Chan-shuu and myself are going to be taking over for awhile! Today I’m going to be taking a look at this item currently up for preorder from Max Factory…
The 1/8th Scale…
Harbour Princess!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the Abyssal Battleship, the Harbour Princess! The figure will be released as an addition to the WONDERFUL HOBBY SELECTION series of top-quality figures! The Harbour Princess’ beautiful long hair, alluring body and the huge arms with claws have all been sculpted without sparing any details.

The sinister ship parts on her sides that even feature a runway are also intricately sculpted and a beautiful contrast to Harbour Princess herself. The paintwork has a white base, but has subtle changes in color throughout the figure leaving highlights to see from any angle you choose! Be sure to add the sorrowful atmosphere of the Harbour Princess to your collection!

The white-skinned abyssal battleship with a captivating body has been transformed into a 1/8th scale figure thanks to the artisans over at Max Factory!

I was lucky enough to be able to borrow the painted prototype for this review, so I’ll be introducing her with some all new photos for everyone to enjoy! She was so much fun to photograph as well!! The first thing I want to point out is her expression and the sculpt of her rather unique eyelashes!


I could stare into the eyes of that wistful expression forever…

The way that the eyelashes are actually sculpted onto the design make them so defined against the white face! Certain parts of the figure have also clearly had to have been specially thought up as it was transformed from illustration into figure – but being able to see those aspects on the figure is one of the things that makes them so enjoyable!

Let’s move onto her body… 

Well, what do you all think? Just looking at her makes my mind and body feel so… refreshed! The softness of her impressive bust contrasts with her firm looking hipbone slightly lower down, and the outfit sticks to the shape of her body so beautifully – you can even make out her belly button if you look close!

The sculpting really is such a pleasure to look at… a big thank you from me to everyone who was involved with her!!

Plus aren’t her thighs just amazing?

Not exactly slim, but that’s what makes them so good!

It’s like the Harbour Princess really is right beside you… well, she is right beside you as a figure. What I mean is that it’s like the REAL Harbour Princess is right beside you! I really wish I could everyone to understand what I feel when I’m gazing at these lovely thighs…

But my personal favorite point… 

That point where her boobs and body connect with a slight curve! The fact that it is partially hidden by her hair is what makes it all the more compelling!!

Even from the back the soft appearance of her body is lovely!!

Which is in sharp contrast to her fearsome iron claws!

 

Her body could easily be taken as a normal human, but she is in fact an Abyssal battleship, and the inhuman claws she has for hands are there to prove it! Each of the fingers have been painted in such stunning detail!

The ship parts also have an incredible presence!

The sculpt and paintwork is very different to the main figure, but just as amazing! You can probably tell from the way the light is gleaming off it that it also makes use of a metallic paint! From the other side of the teeth you can better see the tongue sticking out giving off a kind of mischievous feeling!

The texture of the tongue is done through sculpting and not just paint! The red glowing toward the back of the mouth also adds more to that grotesque feel of the design!

 

A dilapidated steel frame on the other side!


The sculpt has made parts of the steel appear bendable as if made soft from the heat – with blacker areas where the steel has been burned and red areas where they are still heated… you can almost feel the heat just by looking at it! So much detail for a part of the figure’s base!
