Saber Bride

Today’s main feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/7th scale…

Saber Bride!

From the popular game ‘Fate/EXTRA CCC’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of Saber Bride – Saber wearing the ‘Bridal Gown of Restraint’. She is posed with Aestus Estus in hand, ready to confront her enemies in battle while still showing off her curvaceous figure.

The sculpt is filled with all sorts of highlights such as the resolute facial expression, the skirt fluttering in the wind around her and the tight wedding outfit that shows off her beautiful curves. The intricate details on the outfits accessories and paintwork also all come together to create a figure overflowing with Saber’s beauty for fans to enjoy in their collection.

The empress adorned in her bridal gown!

The young female knight, dressed up in wedding attire as ‘Saber Bride’ has been transformed into an exquisite 1/7th scale figure! The contrast between the graceful white lace and the rough restrained appearance of the chains, locks, zips and belts makes for a kind of unbalanced look that has such a mystical charm about it!

Plus to top off the outfit we have this expression!!

Such is the beauty of a flower on the battlefield!

The unwavering will in her eyes together with the tightly closed mouth… the expression captures her confidence as a warrior but still also has an elegant, ladylike appeal to it that is such a pleasure to look at!

This is how she looks from the back!

Note Saber’s characteristic strand of hair that sticks out on the top of her head! Not to mention the large veil blowing out to the side! Another thing I love is that even though the outfit shows very little bare skin, you can still make out the shape of her legs and how soft they look thanks to the tight outfit…

It’s one of those figures that looks quite simple at first, but actually has an incredible amount to notice when you take a nice long look at it!

In her hands she holds Aestus Estus! 

Not only is the size impressive, but it also looks sharp and heavy too!

The fact that the sword extends well past her base makes you really get a good feeling for how large the sword is!

The pose overall has low centre of gravity as she grips the sword down quite low, which gives a rather still appearance to the figure, and yet…

Between the intricate lace outfit and beautiful veil, and the long dress with burnt edges and various little accessories… the ‘movement’ of the outfit adds  a much more dynamic sense to a pose that would normally be quite static!

As the wind blows across the outfit, Saber still stands firm and confident creating a mix of ‘moving’ and ‘still’ elements to the figure that really make the figure look incredible!

Plus the outfit also has very intricate creases all over! <○><○>

Look at her arms and shoulders!

You can even see crease lines on the palms of the gloves which goes to show just how tight the outfit is! As you might expect from an outfit named the ‘Bridal Gown of Restraint’. The tight feeling also continues to her bosom rather – and you can even see how soft they are by the way the arm rests at the one side of her bosom!!

Anyway, as this figure has the zip on the front done up there is not much bare skin showing… but the design of this outfit has a nice little secret on the back… which has been very faithfully preserved on the figure!!  (/ω\)

Oooooh…. (*Admiration)

I really don’t have any words for this, but I have the strangest feeling to want to give my appreciation! Thank you!! The sculptor behind this figure is none other than YUMA (SWANBOAT no SOUZA), the same sculptor behind the previously released Ceil Alencon! (σ・∀・)σ

Ciel Alencon


△ Released in February 2015

YUMA is amazing at differentiating between textures and also sculpting curvaceous bodies that I’m sure almost anyone loves to look at! But the smaller details are also outstanding – you really need to take a look at the smaller details to really appreciate the work that has gone into this figure! Just take a nice long look at these pictures…! ♡




△ No matter what angle I look from my eyes can’t stop wandering! (´□`。)

It’s one of those figures that really makes it seem that Saber is right there beside you! It really brings the Fate universe to your collection!

Plus the base is made in the image of the Fate/EXTRA material artbook cover! ★


△ The Fate/EXTRA CCC is also included in a fancy silver!

She is a must-have for any Saber fans, but on top of that she is a masterpiece of sculpting that any figure fans should be proud to add to their collection!

Be sure to add the beautiful and valiant bride to your collection!

Saber Bride!

She will be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♥︎

Angela Balzac

Today’s Main Feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Without further ado, today I’m going to be taking a look at Phat! Company’s…

1/7th Scale Angela Balzac!★ 

From the original anime film ‘Expelled from Paradise’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of the heroine, Angela Balzac! The figure captures the beautiful curves of her body as well as her charming expression as she gazes right at you. Her combat suit has been intricately sculpted with careful attention to textures, adding even more charm to the figure. The data forms of Angela and the Frontier Setter are also included to pose beside her for even more fun!

Ooooooooooh!!! (´□`。)

From the original full CG anime directed by Seiji Mizushima with screenplay by Gen Urobuchi ‘Expelled from Paradise’ comes a lovely 1/7th scale figure of the DEVA’s system security third officer, Angela Balzac!

The confident smile on her face, an almost too perfect body, a very unique and attractive outfit and those beautiful long twin tails flowing behind her!! They all come together so beautifully!

There are so many different parts of her to look at that my eyes don’t know where to stop! The pose with her down on her knees together with the way to hair flows out to the sides also means the figure has a rather impressive size!

△  The ‘tight’ look around her bottom and hips as well as
the indents behind her knees are a must-see! ♪

I also want to point of the detail on her back!!

The contrast between her soft looking skin and the mechanical suit is such a pleasure to the eyes! ε=(。・д・。)

I would definitely leave her on display where you can sometimes get a look at her back! The sculpt is so nicely done!! ★

But speaking of a pleasure to the eyes…

If I had to pick three adjectives here… I’d go with ‘shiny’, ‘tight’ and ‘squishy’! You can really feel the pull of gravity as well!

This shot shows that a low angle is yet another great angle to take a look at her from! Another section that I personally really love would be…

Her belly button!! (/ω\)

The ever so slight bump of her stomach is also lovely!

Although the area is covered up with the shiny white suit, you can certainly picture the soft skin on the other side with your mind’s eye! Delicious!!

Also take note of the joints of her fingers, or even the fact that you can make out where her nails are through the outfit if you look close enough! Phat! has really spared no details this time around!! You need to sit down and take a nice long look at this figure to really appreciate all the attention to detail! <○><○>

△ Each of the fingers has been sculpted with its own charm!

Plus underneath the hands of this Angela you’ll find someone supporting her… someone looking a little troubled!

A datarized version of herself!

The blocky appearance from the series has been recreated perfectly! The body has little lines carved out along it and the hair accessories are made from a semi-transparent material – even this version of Angela is filled with details for fans to enjoy! ♪

By the way, the mini-Angela is not attached to the main figure in anyway, so you can display the two of them separately should you prefer! (・∀・)

△ French Bread is not included! (It’s also not real!)

Even the reverse side of Data Angela can be seen!

△ Palm-sized! So cute!!

There is also one more part included that wasn’t available while I was taking my photos… but you can see it in the official photos!

A datarized Frontier Setter! (*´Д`)=з

This part is also separate from the main figure – you can choose where and how you wish to display it! ♪

Enjoy the system security third officer from any angle you please!

Utaha Kasumigaoka: A Closer Look!

“Good morning, Rinri-kun.”

 

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a closer look at the figure I introduced yesterday…

The 1/7th Scale…

Utaha Kasumigaoka!♥︎

From the anime series ‘Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of the top student and up-and-coming novelist Utaha Kasumigaoka-senpai!The figure is based on an illustration by Kurehito Misaki, the original character designer of the series – it features Utaha right the middle of getting dressed, and has been sculpted and painted with great care to ensure it captures the charm of Utaha-senpai from the original illustration. Obviously all the areas that were never visible on the illustration have been carefully considered and added on to the figure, allowing fans to enjoy the lovely pose from any angle they please!

Hyafuuuuuuuuuu!!!! (/ω\)

Yesterday I took a quick sneak peek at some of the highlights of the figure, so be sure to take a look at that blog as well!
⇒ Utaha Kasumigaoka (Sneak Peek)

But let’s get on with today’s review, starting from the back!

The figure is posed  leaning over making her stand slightly shorter than most 1/7th scale figures! Her long, flowing hair looks so very soft, and the way her skirt is being lifted up is fantastic!

The reverse side of the figure is filled with so many highlights that you never get to see from the front!

Taking a look from the side also shows off a fair amount of skin! Just look at the curves around the belly button!

The intricate creases and folds of the blouse are so realistic!

It really makes me feel like I’m taking peeping photos! (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

Another piece of detail that I really loved is the fastener’s on the outfit! The left and right sides have been properly thought out for the sculpt!

You wouldn’t be able to see parts like that if the clothes were fully worn… 

But that’s exactly why a dressing scene like this exists, isn’t it?! 

The ribbon and it’s fasteners, the collar and her boldly opened out blouse… everything about the sculpt and pose just begs you to stare in awe!

When it comes down to it, it’s a rather simple school uniform, but that exact second of the start of getting dressed has been frozen in time for fans to enjoy forever! That’s what makes her so special! (*´Д`)♥

The 1/7th scale also allows for a little more detail to be added into the figure! The figure’s planner, Kyojin, had this highlight to point out! 

The Toe Area of the Stockings!

You can clearly make out where the toes begin thanks to the sculpt!

Let’s check on the sculptor’s highlights!

The sculptor of this figure is none other than Good Smile’s Manabu Katou! His highlights of the sculpt were…

The fluttering feeling of the uniform!

The blouse and blazer are so meticulously sculpted which gives off a really realistic look to the outfit! It really looks like gravity is pulling on it, and the various parts are fluttering loosely. All the areas that were never visible on the original illustration are also carefully thought out and sculpted on in a wonderful way!

Apparently the most difficult thing to work on was the creases and fluttering effect of the uniform! I said it was a rather simple outfit, but that my no means makes it easy to sculpt – the amount of detail is still incredible! (●´ω`●)

See-though Stockings

The calves, back of her knees and bottom are all covered up by ever so slightly transparent stockings! The tight pull of the stockings on the skin is nicely noticeable as well! You need to really see this for yourself when she joins your collection!

Utaha-senpai’s black stockings are definitely one of her charm points! ♥︎

The fact that she is lifting her skirt up means that even more of the stockings are visible than most figures with stockings! (σ・∀・)σ

Even the run guard in the stocking is visible on the figure!!

Then as if that amount of detail wasn’t enough, they are even slightly translucent allowing you to see the soft skin behind them as well! ♪

Utaha-senpai getting dressed just for you!

Utaha Kasumigaoka!

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♥︎

Plus as mentioned yesterday, all purchases of Utaha-senpai will include a postcard featuring the original illustration by Kurehito Misaki that the figure is based on!

By the way, this postcard is included with purchases from any store! It is not an exclusive!! More details will be up on the GSC Website tomorrow, so be sure to take a look! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
