Nendoroid and figma Nagisa Momoe

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I kept thinking I should go to Disneyland for the Halloween special and before I knew it today was the final day!! The Christmas version starts from the 7th November already!!

Anyway, today I’ll be taking a look at:

Nendoroid and figma Nagisa Momoe

I was trying to save these for tonight’s live broadcast, but I couldn’t resist!


*They are both still in production and being checked by the publisher, so there are certain parts I can’t show just yet! (`・ω・´;)

First up we have..
Nendoroid Nagisa Momoe! ♪


For those who don’t know, Nagisa is a new Puella Magi from the latest in the Madoka movie series: Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion Story

I know there are many of you who haven’t seen the movie yet, so don’t worry! No spoilers!! (´Д`;)


As much as I’d love to talk about her role in the movie… I’ll resist for now!!

The cute little candy shape on her belt is so cute! ♡
Her dotted tights also look lovely!!


Her hair looks so soft and fluffy! I wish I could run my fingers through it!


Her optional parts are still in production at the moment so I can’t show them just yet… but I’m personally looking forward to seeing her expression parts!

Next up we have…
figma Nagisa Momoe!

Nagisa’s figma will be made slightly shorter than most figmas, meaning she’ll look just right displayed with the other Puella Magi! I can’t wait to display them together! ♪


Her fluffy outfit and the pompoms on her sleeves and hat look great!
The cat ears on her hat are also adorable! ♥


So this is how Nagisa’s hair looks from the back…!

The movie can be seen in theaters across Japan at the moment and will be available at theaters all over the world soon! From this weekend if you go and see it in Japan you will get a special postcard! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Details can be found here: http://www.madoka-magica.com/theater/prize.html
Last weekend was a mini shikishi which I got my hands on!

The shikishi was one of five which is randomly given out… I really wanted to get Nagisa and I was lucky enough to get her! (ΦωΦ)

But that’s not all from Madoka Magica at the moment!
Kaname Madoka
~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~

Don’t forget that the second release of this lovely figure is currently available at the GSC Online Shop! ♡


The gentle colors from Ume Aoki’s illustration have been preserved perfectly, and work together with the pose beautifully!

Orders are open until the 20th November 2013, so don’t miss out! (`・ω・´)

Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Every time I see Kyubey the first thing I want to do is stroke his tail! I don’t normally get along with animals all that well, but somehow I think I could get along with Kyubey!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at:

Kaname Madoka
           ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~

From the movies released in 2012, ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie: The Beginning Story / The Everlasting’ comes a scale figure of Kaname Madoka in her Puella Magi outfit. The figure is a complete rendition of the key visual for the movie, originally illustrated by character designer Ume Aoki. The sculpting work is by Hiroshi (Sakurazensen), the same sculptor who brought you the 1/8th scale Ultimate Madoka. It’s a figure filled with amazing detail for fans to enjoy.

Ooooh!!! ε=(。>д<。)I’ve been waiting so long!!

We showed off the unpainted prototype at the Summer WonFes, and now finally we can take a look at the painted version!


The soft pinks and whites are so lovely and relaxing!

The colors used by Ume Aoki-sensei have been faithfully preserved! Not to mention all the minute details!


Just look at the detail of the creases on her clothes as her body twists…


Or her cute skirt with such amazing volume!


From the underside you can see all the layers of frills that make up her skirt! It was quite a nerve-wracking experience putting this prototype together… (゚A゚;)


The rose at the tip of her bow has also been faithfully sculpted!


The dynamic pose has her hair flowing behind her in a pose that captures the split second of motion perfectly! ♪

The heart-shape area cut out from the dress on her back is also lovely, and personally I’ve fallen in love with the back of her knees! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

It’s a figure you could happily lick stare at for hours..! I think I need to show everyone a video instead of just photos so you can see every angle! <●><●>

(・∀・) “Then let’s show a video!”

Today We’re joined by the head planner for this product, Oda-P!

A video… but I heard she was being sent off to China as soon as I was done with my photos! Where will we get a video from?!

(・∀・) “Fear not! I have managed to borrow the figure from the factory!!”

…I should expect no more from Oda-P! He can do anything that us normal people can never achieve… although one can’t help bu-

(・∀・) “Plus I have an announcement to make!”

(He cut me off…! (・ω<)) W-What is it?!

(・∀・)”The Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~ advertisement is currently up on YouTube and NicoNico Douga!!”

Ooh! What lovely news! ♪♪ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

You can watch the commercial at either of the sites below:
YouTube: http://youtu.be/4l6EjvyQ8qQ
NicoNico Douga: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/so22061528

If you borrowed the figure from the factory, can I take another look at it and take my own video? ((o(´∀`)o))ワクワク

(・∀・) “It’s not in Japan again yet…”

… Huh? (゚Д゚)?

(・∀・) “She’s currently crossing the ocean!”

What!!? When will she arrive?! (ヽ´ω`)

(・∀・) “She should be here in time for the live broadcast on Friday.”

*:.。..。.:*・゜Yay — (*´∀`)゚・*:.。. .。.:*・

I knew I could rely on you Oda-P! You would never let me down!
With that said… let’s get to announcing that live broadcast!! ♪

=======================================

We’ll be taking at a couple of figures including Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~, other figures announced this month and a look at some of the events that took place!!

I’m sure we:ll be sneaking in some sneak previews of new figures too, so be sure to tune-in!! ( -ノェ-)

The figure above might make a little debut there too! It’s my second broadcast this time, so I should be a little less nervous than last time!

Another thing to remember is that this weekend is the start of Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: The Rebellion Story! (*´▽`*)

(・∀・) “The commercial you saw earlier is also scheduled to show in cinemas!”

… ( ゚д゚)! (“Oda-P says such important things as if they were nothing…!”)

Apparently it will show as one of the adverts before the movie! I’m sure it’ll look amazing on the big screen! ☆

A prefect rendition of Ume Aoki-sensei’s lovely illustration:
