figma Link & Zelda: Twilight Princess ver. (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

Strength, intelligence, courage… I hope  I’ll be able to gain at least one of those traits eventually!

Hello everyone! My name is Isono, a member of Max Factory’s planning team! Today I’m going to be taking a look at these products that went up for preorder today!

%image_alt%

figma Link: Twilight Princess ver. &
figma Zelda: Twilight Princess ver.!

(*Each sold separately!)

From The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess comes a figma main character and hero of the series Link together with the Princess of Hyrule, Zelda!

They’re both so amazing!! So… beautiful!!! With just one quick glance at the figures you can tell that the sculpting and painting of both is so amazingly detailed!! Let’s take a closer look at them one-by-one! Ladies first!

figma Zelda: Twilight Princess ver.!

%image_alt%
▲ This first photo shows off her dignified expression as well as the sword that she holds at the ready! 

▼ Let’s also take a look at the back…

%image_alt%

She looks beautiful no matter what side you choose to look at her from! The somewhat mysterious atmosphere about the Twilight Princess version of Zelda has also been captured so nicely!

The first thing that really stands out about figma Zelda is the lovely colors! The paintwork on her accessories, dress and skirt almost all make use of a pearl paint which gives her outfit a silky, gorgeous shine. That said, the shine is by no means a glittery effect, but more of an elegant gleam that creates a lovely dignified look at captures Zelda beautifully!

By the way, although you can’t see them in these photos, Zelda’s pants and boots have also been faithfully sculpted and painted underneath the dress!

▼Another thing to note is the intricate changes in color all over the figure!

%image_alt%

The arrows all point to areas that have been painted with the utmost attention to detail!

%image_alt%

▲ Next up we have her smiling expression!

Such a gentle smile that just overflows with both kindness and beauty! The next point I want to make everyone aware of is the accessories and ornaments on her outfit… the shoulder armor, crown and various other parts are all made using 3D sculpting! The fact that they are made this way allows the more intricate patterns and shapes to be preserved!

%image_alt%

▲ The Bow of Light she used in the battle with Ganondorf is also included!

The bow also of course features pearl paint! The bow and arrow itself has also been beautifully sculpted from top to bottom creating stunning beauty that you would normally never associate with a weapon! The skirt is also articulated allowing for a wide range of different posing options!

figma Zelda: Twilight Princess ver.!

She comes with two expressions: a standard expression and smiling expression as well as two accessories: a sword and the Bow of Light!

She will be available for ¥5,600 (Before Tax)!

Next up, we move onto the hero of our story…

figma Link: Twilight Princess ver.

%image_alt%

▲ This confident expression with tense eyes always leaves such a strong impression!

The build of his body has been captured so nicely showing off just how handsome this version of Link is!! The overall sober tone of colors used makes him look a little more grown-up compared to the previous figma figures of Link! Let’s take a closer look at his heroic outfit!!

▼ The arrows here show the chain mail armor made with 3D sculpting!

%image_alt%

You can see each of the little chain links creating a lovely texture for the armor!

▼There us also a joint located in the hat, which allows it to be moved around both horizontally and vertically!

%image_alt%

%image_alt%

▲ Next up we have a face with clenched teeth!

This glaring expression is perfect for combat poses and instantly makes Link look more skilled with his weapons! The series classics have been included with the Master Sword and Hylian Shield both included!

▼ The Master Sword can also be sheathed on his back!

%image_alt%

Sun Priestess Tamayorihime

Hello fellow readers of Kahotan Blog and nice to meet you! My name is Akane Eiseihei (@akane_mxf) and I am a member of Max Factory’s planning team!

While Kahotan was away on Summer vacation I wrote up this blog which was published on the Japanese blog, but now that the preorder deadline has been extended a little there is some time to add a translated version to the English side, so here we go! Sorry for the delay!

I don’t think Kahotan realized just how silly she was to leave the blog to me! Who knows what kind of silly things will end up in this blog while I am in control! Today I’m going to be taking a look at this WonHobby Selection item that is currently up for preorder!

Sun Priestess Tamayorihime!

From ‘selector infected WIXOSS’, the anime based on the popular trading card game ‘WIXOSS’ comes a full-scale figure of the level 4 LRIG, Sun Priestess Tamayorihime. Tamayorihime’s cute, innocent and playful appearance has been faithfully recreated in figure form. The floating appearance from the card along with the halos positioned around her have also been carefully preserved, creating a figure that looks as if she has jumped right out of the card to join your collection!
Tama has just jumped right off the card and into the world of figures!!

Take a nice close look at her!!

Such an amazing dynamic pose, not to mention the amazing floating feeling!!

This is the card that the figure was based on – as you can see the figure is completely faithful to the original illustration!

“Tama… she came out of the card for… me…”

This is your chance to become a Selector and aim to be an Eternal Girl!! At least, that’s the way I feel when I look at the figure – it really draws you right into the series as Tama is right there beside you!! Plus as Tama-chan is a LRIG and her actual height is only about 30cm… that also means that this is a full scale figure! The actual size of Tama will be on display beside you!!

By the way, her size when compared to normal scale figures would place her around the 1/7th scale size!

The figure also allows you to see her from the back!

To preserve the floating appearance and still keep her nice and stable, the stand makes use of a clear acrylic pillar!

The official photos don’t include many shots of her from the back, but that is by no means that she doesn’t look great from behind as well!

Just look at the sculpt of those fluttering sleeves and flowing hair…!!

Not to mention all the smooth skin that you can see in the openings of her outfit! I promise you this IS a figure! If you touch the skin it won’t be as soft as it looks!! 

Whilst I love illustrations as much as anyone else, there is definitely so much more texture and shape now that you can see her as a completely three dimensional figure! You always needed to imagine the shape and curves of her back and body with the illustration, but now they are right there for you to see! Or even feel!

My personal best things about the figure are her smooth, slim body as well as the little teases you can get while looking around at the gaps of her clothes! Can you see them?! Can’t you?!

The curves of her thighs are also magnificent…!

But let’s not forget that this is Tama-chan that has grown to Level 4!!

Areas like this… ↑

…and like this. ↑

Have definitely grown to level 4 too!! 

If you look really close at her hips you’ll notice you can just see the faint outlines of her bones as they push on the skin due to her posing! That somehow gets me really excited!! By the way, the sculptor for this figure is none other than Shining Wizard @ Sawatika – a sculptor said to have no equal when it comes to adding the little details like these!!

The paintwork is also outstanding!

Take a second to look at the clothes she is wearing. While it’s mostly just a while outfit the various shades and highlights all over and slight use of yellows and blues create something that definitely isn’t just a slap of white paint – the attention to details and lighting is very carefully considered!

Plus even the feather accessories in her hair cast shadows which have clearly been depicted by intricate paintwork! They say transferring illustrations into figures is not an easy task, but this figure is an example that it can be done with a good balance of sculpt and paintwork!!

I really have to say this figure is a masterpiece! You will love her once she joins your collection!! Make sure you don’t miss out!

Sun Priestess Tamayorihime!

Up for preorder until the 16th September 2015 at 21:00JST!

The figure also comes with two limited edition WIXOSS cards! One Sun Priestess Tamayorihime illustrated by keypot and one Arc Aura illustrated by Tomoko Fujinoki!

Whether you play the game or not, the cards are definitely items any WIXOSS fan will enjoy!

Note that this product is a WONDERFUL HOBBY SELECTION item! If you’re in Japan, this means that it is exclusive to the online shop… but if you’re overseas she will also be available at our partnershops!
