Phosphophyllite (Land of the Lustrous)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/8th scale…
Phosphophyllite!

From the popular manga series currently being serialized in Monthly Afternoon magazine, “Land of the Lustrous” comes a 1/8th scale figure of the main character, Phosphophyllite! The figure has been sculpted by Shokubutu Shojo-en’s Iwanaga Sakurako, who has created a figure that captures Phos’ beauty in a work of art.

The figure makes use of a large amount of translucency in order to capture Phos’ jewel-like appearance as faithfully as possible, with the hair making use of a metallic paint that captures the dazzling look in careful detail. Be sure to add this beautiful gem to your collection!

The phosphophyllite gem!

From the popular manga series that currently also has an anime airing, “Land of the Lustrous”, comes a 1/8th scale figure of the main character and youngest of the gems at just 300 years old –  Phosphophyllite!

The figure has such a unique appearance that really captures the atmosphere from the series! Let’s start off with a quick spin to take a look from various different angles! (∩・∀・)∩

The sculpting is done by Shokubutu Shojo-en’s Iwanaga Sakurako, and as always the sculpt looks absolutely stunning! The intricate details and subtle touches all over the sculpt make you want to stare at the gem for ages!

The tight fitting black outfit sticks close to the curves allowing you to make out all the little bumps along the hipbone even through the outfit!

The contrast of the black outfit and the pale and soft looking skin of the thighs is lovely, and the curves of those thighs are also so beautiful!!

▲The creases in the outfit are also very intricate! (*´ェ`*)

The gem-like hair is made completely using a translucent green that also makes use of a special glowing metallic paint that creates a kind of oil-like effect that really captures that gem-like appearance of Phos’ design! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

The way the hair catches the light differs depending on the angle you choose to look from, so be sure to try all sorts of different angles once it joins your collection!

Plus, if we take a close-up of the face…

You’ll notice that the eyelashes are actually sculpted onto the figure! This also makes use of a metallic paint which makes the whole eyes glitter beautifully and differ depending on the angle you choose to look from – just like an actual gemstone! ★

Such beautiful long legs and arms also in fact make use of an ever so slightly translucent appearance to add even more to the gemstone feel! ♪

Now let’s take a look at the base!

The main part of the base has a watery-look with ripples all along the water surface!  The ripples are coming from Ventricosus jumping out of the water!

▲ The details of the water are really a treat for the eyes!

Phos is attached to the base like so!

▲ If you look close at the base you’ll see some pieces of the arm! (´□`。)

Be sure to add this gem to your collection! 

The 1/8th Scale…
Phosphophyllite!

The gem will be up for preorder tomorrow!

Hatsune Miku: 10th Anniversary Ver.

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Hatsune Miku: 10th Anniversary Ver.!

Hatsune Miku celebrated her 10th anniversary on the 31st August 2017. In commemoration of the anniversary, Hatsune Miku’s character designer KEI illustrated a brand new illustration of Miku featuring the outfit designed by manga artist Mari Shimazaki. This illustration has now been transformed into an intricate scale figure by sculptor Takayuki Kawahara, filled with 10 years of appreciation toward the virtual idol!

Her body shines with a rainbow glow, and the transparent areas of the design have all been captured on the figure, together with the meticulous detail of her twin-tails and the ribbons in her hair. The huge, iconic ribbon from the illustration has also been included on the figure, and even flows down to form the base of the figure as well.

In addition, the figure will include a 390 page A4 size commemorative book called the “Hatsune Miku Archive”, which will include the winners of the pixiv Hatsune Miku 10th Anniversary illustration contest as well as other contents to look back on Miku’s 10th anniversary. Be sure to add this commemorative figure to your collection and celebrate ten years with Hatsune Miku!

Celebrating 10 years of Hatsune Miku!

This year is the 10th anniversary of Miku-san!! We have taken her 10th anniversary design and transformed it into a 1/7th scale figure!

▲ The flow of her twin-tails and ribbon are so amazing!

The figure is of based on the 10th anniversary that was specially illustrated by character designer KEI! (。・ω・)ノ゙

The lovely Miku that we all love has been transformed with a metallic look and rainbow colors all over for a familiar yet new appearance! This version of Miku was designed by the designer and manga artist Mari Shimazaki! This was the original design!

⇒ Hatsune Miku 10th Anniversary x Good Smile Company Special Site

The original illustration and design were of course amazing… but the figure has all been brought together by Good Smile Company’s very own Takayuki Kawahara!

Here are some items sculpted by him in the past! ↓↓


▲ Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier

▲ Sakura Kinomoto: Stars Bless You

 

But anyway, let’s get back to today’s main feature with a quick spin!

You can see just how large the huge ribbon on her back is, and speaking of ribbons, the rainbow-colored ribbons in her hair and glittery outfit bring so much lovely color to the figure! (●‘∀‘●)ノ”

The Nendoroid has to have some of the ribbons removed to fit in the mini-size, but the scale figure faithfully captures all seven different colors on each side! ♪

Each of the ribbons also has a glittery effect making it sparkle! So pretty!

Let’s take a look at three points that make this figure so special!

– Cuteness –

Just look at this adorable face!!

The feeling that KEI captured in his illustration has been preserved on the figure so beautifully! She looks so innocent and pure with a smile that could warm anyone’s heart! I could stare at this adorable expression for ages!

– Transparency –

If you look closely at her shoes you’ll notice that the tips are actually translucent!! In order to capture the illustration as faithfully as possible, the feet were completely sculpted first and then the shoes with a transparent layer on the outside! The inside isn’t just paint – it’s all actually sculpted!

The combination of transparency and glitter on her arm covers is also lovely!

▲ From the front you can’t really see them, but the panels on her arm covers are also of course included! ♪

– Shininess –

The rainbow gradient on the metallic part of her outfit has been carefully adjusted as not to be too overpowering, but still create that lovely colorful look!! ε-(o´ω`o)

▲ Even the soles of her shoes have a metallic rainbow gradient!

Another area you have to take note of is the bottom the skirt and top of the socks!

Not only do they feature a glittery look, but the inside is also painted to make it look like the inside is glowing in order to capture the lighting effect from the illustration! ♪

The areas circled in red here have a kind of glowing effect that looks so amazing!!

It really is an absolutely stunning figure in terms of sculpt and coloring!! There is so much to see and enjoy! You really need to see her for yourself though!!

▲ She is so sparkly!

A commemorative item to say thanks and congratulations to Miku!
Hatsune Miku: 10th Anniversary Ver.!

Recently I’ve been drinking a lot more coffee, but today I’m more in a tea mood. I could definitely go for a lovely cup of afternoon tea!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Alpaca Suri!

Optional parts include three cups, a tray, a teacup as well as a café table allowing you to pose her in all sorts of poses related to the café. Alternate hand parts for Nendoroid Serval and Nendoroid Kaban are also included which allow them to hold the cups!

▲ The tail also has a lovely fluffy appearance to it! ♪

In her hand she holds a tray with a teacup and teapot!

▲ Three teacups are included! I’ll explain why shortly!

She comes with three face plates including the lovely standard expression you can see in the photos above! Her second expression is this disappointed face plate!

That eye really makes it seem like she wants to say something!

The fact that the one eye is hidden behind her hair also means that changing the angle can make for quite a large change in the feel of the expression!

▲ An expression that can tell so many stories!

Let’s move on to her third expression: a cheerful smile with closed eyes! ♡

I can just imagine her cheerful voice playing through my head! Plus as you can also see, she comes with a café table as well!

You can place the additional cups on the table to bring out the atmosphere of the café even more… but that’s not all! ♪

She also comes with bonus hand parts that allow both Nendoroid Serval and Nendoroid Kaban to hold the teacups! All sorts of different ways to enjoy scenes from the café! ★

▲ Perhaps there will be more friends to display with them soon!
