1/8th Scale Nadeko Sengoku (Part 2)

Today I’ll be continuing my review of the cute Nadeko!

002

The second figure in the Bakemonogatori series:

1/8th Scale Nadeko Sengoku!
 
As I mentioned yesterday, the pose above is based on the jacket cover of the 4th volume Blu-ray & DVD box for series. Here is part one if you missed it: 1/8th Scale Nadeko Sengoku (Part 1)

It features Nadeko with her feet wading through water, some old Japanese torii archways, beautiful autumn leaves… it’s a figure filled with beauty!

But she actually comes with another secret!



01

She comes with optional leg parts!

For all those who would prefer to display Nadeko’s entire body, these are the extra parts included for you! Plus the fact that she is bare foot also adds to the charms of her school swimsuit!

002

We also can’t forget her adorable hat!

Yesterday’s bust-up shot from didn’t include the hat, so today has to include it!  Removing and putting the hat on is simple, so you can easily switch whenever you want!


003

Full body shot with no hat!

This version of Nadeko really has a strange kind of erotic feeling to it…. ^^;

Personally I think it’s because…

– She might be wearing a shirt over it, but underneath you know there is a school swimsuit there!
 
– The embarrassed expression on her face while holding her shirt out!

Those are the two reasons for the erotic feeling… in my opinion at least…

008

This is how she looks from the back!

When you use the leg parts with the feet Nadeko suddenly seems to have much more of a presence!  Her left foot has a little transparent piece to connect her to the stand, but the right foot can be spun and placed in any direction.

010

She has a little slack bag on her hip!

Also, I couldn’t really get a good picture of it, but…

The gap created where her thighs and the swimsuit meet is stunning!

If you buy her be sure to take a look, it’s a wonderful sight!!

Hmm… I’m starting to think that people involved with Bakemonogatari are going to get annoyed with me if I continue with all of these shots… sorry! I really do love Bakemonogatari! I’ve bought every single one of the DVDs!

013
This is how the box looks!

The yellow and brown give a kind of mature feeling to the box, and suit the autumn feeling of the figure.

1/8th Scale Nadeko Sengoku (Part 1)

The GSC Office is finally getting back into the swing of things…


001

Which means I’ll start getting product samples again!!
We are of course trying to send all new products out to as many regions as possible, but under the circumstances there may be some areas that will have delayed delivery – if it’s not there on the release day just be patient…. it will reach you eventually!

The GSC Offices are currently out for the planned black-outs!

My desk is about half in the dark, but that’s not going to stop me from taking photos… the lighting might be a little different to normal, but the figure is super cute so I don’t think it’ll make too much of a difference… I’ll take some extra pictures instead!

That said, let’s get onto today’s product!

002

The 2nd figure in the Bakemonogatari series:

1/8th Scale Nadeko Sengoku!
 
Nadeko is from the popular anime series ‘Bakemonogatari’! The pose of the figure is based on the jacket cover of the 4th volume Blu-Ray and DVD covers of the series. It shows Nadeko wading through some water with an adorable smile beaming across her face in a relaxed autumn atmosphere.

She is the second in a series of figures, following on from Hitagi Senjougahara, and just like her predecessor… she is filled with extra parts and a stunning base to boot!!  Σ(・∀・)


003

This is how she looks from the back!
 
It doesn’t matter what angle you look at her from… she looks great from any angle! It’s wonderful to see more figures that build an entire scene like this one!

 

015

An old torii archway and autumn leaves!

   |   . `⌒   }      
   ヽ       } 
    ヽ     ノ 
   /      ヽ 

Just like Hitagi, the stand is just as amazing as the figure itself!

If you haven’t seen it before, take a look at this article to see just how the painting is done:
Paiting 1/8th Scale Hitagi Senjougahara’s Stationary!

005

Her jacket and hat can both be removed!
 
Nadeko is easily embarrassed so she tries to hide behind her jacket and hat… which looks fine on her, but…

But she looks even cuter without them!! (;゚∀゚)=3

Just like Hitagi’s skirt, even the inside of Nadeko’s jacket has been completely painted!

The area where the the jacket connects to her however is kept the same color to make sure that the different color does not rub off onto the actual figure.
004

A cute bashful smile…!
 
Aww, she is trying so hard to hide her embarrassment, but she just can’t hide those frowning eyebrows!!


011

Autumn leaves on her shirt!
 
Plus look at the detail of the creases around her breasts! They are perfect! Obviously the leaves on her shirt have the same stunning paint work as the other leaves.

012

There is a snake inside the clear base!
 
It looks like he is just at the surface of the water, twirling around Nadeko’s legs….! I can’t believe the amount of thought that must have been put into this figure!

The base is made of clear plastic, but if you look close you’ll notice it also has a lovely gradient effect to it. There are also bright gold leaves floating all over the water, and stunning ripples moving out from Nadeko’s legs. It all comes together to create a really stunning scene!

That’s all for today’s blog… but…

Nadeko also comes with a set of replaceable legs!
Tomorrow I’ll take a look at her with the alternate legs instead.

That’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!
