figma Sinon

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I completely forgot that yesterday was Hinamatsuri! I’ll be one day late, but I’ll have some shirozake and hina-arare later today!

Anyway, today I’m going to be looking at an item from Max Factory going on sale later this month !

figma Sinon!

△ Climbing a tree for a better sniping position! ★

Just like the Nendoroid, Sinon’s figma is so much fun to move around and play with!

The joints move around so very freely making to so easy to pose her with other items and figures! I quite enjoyed matching her up with rather unusual items! ♪

△ Sinon stops a fight between a Shield Liger and Mr.Penguin.

If you are very careful with balance you can make awesome action poses like this! <○><○>

△ A pistol and effect parts are also included!

I imagine that outdoor photos with Sinon would open up all sorts of fun opportunities! Now that it’s starting to warm up I hope that I can find the time to go on more figure photo outings! 

That reminds me! A quick reminder!!


I’m currently looking for a photo to use as my Spring Twitter header!

But anyway, let’s get back to figma Sinon! 

She seems to have taken position on the photocopier…!

△She can easily take a prone sniping pose!

I wonder what she’s aiming at…? <○><○>

△ There are lots of woosers… but that’s not quite where she’s aiming…

If we follow her careful gaze…

△ This is Max Factory’s planning division… Takeshita-sensei’s (@yatasith) desk!

 Is that… what I think it is?! (`・д´・;) *gulp*
 Let’s zoom in a little bit further…!


△ A figma Flyboy Zombie looking rather hyped up on a motorbike!

Hurry up and take the shot!! (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

It’s so much fun to make up little stories like using multiple figma figures! It really brings back the joy of playing with dolls from my youth… just with even more fun options! ♥︎

Now it seems she is crawling along searching for something…

△ An alternate back head part for her to look forward when prone is included!


 Huh…! Who’s that?!
△ A pistol… stockings… sneakers… it can only be her!!

She was out searching for Aoi Sakurai who is currently up for preorder at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP! ★ 

△ Sinon decided to try and mimic Aoi’s pose!

If you’re looking for more about Aoi Sakurai, be sure to check out these blogs!

Another thing you have to note about figma Sinon is her outfit!! 

△ When you take the time to look, it’s actually a rather sexy outfit!

The two parts on the sides of thighs are made from soft parts making sure you can see the gaps of skin nicely!

Let me try to make some more action poses that show off Sinon as the best sniper in GGO!  

△ A joint is added underneath her chest allowing you to twist the body!
This works amazingly well for dynamic poses in mid movement!

As you can see above, she also comes with her favorite sniper rifle, Hecate II! (●´ω`●)ゞ

The pistol from earlier can be holstered at her hips while she uses the rifle! ♪

△ Even in 1/12th scale, the curves of her hips and bottom are beautiful!

The scarf around her neck can be attached and removed whenever you like, and also comes with joints at the base! 

Finally a quick look at how she looks from the back! ♥︎

△ Looking out at the night scenery…

The amount of possibilities that come with each and every figma figure is so incredible! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Be sure to recreate all your favorite situations!!

Asuna -Knights of the Blood Ver.-

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m currently trying to decide whether or not to switch from short to long sleeves! It’s starting to feel like autumn is on the way! But it’s always easy to get sick during season changes, so I hope everyone is taking care!

Today I’m going to be taking a look at a product announced today:

Asuna -Knights of the Blood Ver.-!

From the anime ‘Sword Art Online’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the Knights of the Blood sub-leader, Asuna!

She is posed wearing her guild outfit with a serious expression on her face, as she nimbly dances around the battlefield holding her favorite sword, ‘Lambent Light’. It’s a pose that shows both Asuna’s cute and serious side, for fans to enjoy whenever they please!

She’s beautiful!!! (*´Д`)

Her long, flowing hair!

Her dynamic skirt!

Her fluttering cape!

She’s beautiful no matter what angle you look from…
… and she’s right here with me!!!

The pose has an amazingly dynamic feeling which works really well with her outfit to create a wonderful, elegant pose! The details on Lambent Light are also fantastic!

One of my personal favorite areas… her hip area!

I could stare at this forever…! ε=(。・д・。)

(・∀・) “Isn’t she nice! Isn’t she pretty! ♪”

The head planner of Asuna, Yuri-chan Honpo has come to stare with me!

(・∀・) “The theme of this figure was to create a figure that stands at the boundary of the 2D and 3D world, showing the beauty from both! (`・ω・´)”

Yuri-chan was also the head planner for all the other SAO figures as well as other figures like the scale and Nendoroid figures of Kuroyukihime!

(・∀・) “Yep! Nendoroids have a kind of built-in cuteness factor from their chibiness, but scale figures need to bring out the personality and atmosphere of the character completely!”

I think the scale of Kuroyukihime is a good example of that! It preserves her elegant, gentle apperance… and also has a bit of a sexy side!

(・∀・) “Scale figures allow us to focus on the details, which you can really see by looking at Asuna’s outfit!”

The collar and shoulder areas are beautiful… (*´Д`)
The manufacturing team are in for some tough work…

(・∀・) “She’s a scale figure which means she’s not posable, but that allowed us to focus on getting the pose perfect! For those who don’t know, the pose is from the cover illustration of the first light novel! The bottom half of her wasn’t in the illustration so we had to experiment a bit to find some legs that suited the pose!

(・∀・) “The twist in the hips and overall balance of the figure required lots of discussion and testing.”

That’s just one of the challenges of turning 2D into 3D!

(・∀・) “Yep, but I’m a huge fan of Asuna myself, so it was great to see her slowly but surely take shape! ♪”

The figure is filled with Yuri-chan’s love! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

If you were to select your favorite part of the figure, what would it be?

(・∀・) Her armpits!!!”

(・∀・) “The little indents and the way the shadows fall around them just look so perfect!”

The body line down from the armpits to the hips is also lovely! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “The pose lets you enjoy both armpits, so if you have that little fetish like me, you’re bound to love this figure!”

Let’s have one last photo showing Asuna from the top of her fingertips to the bottom of her feet…

Asuna -Knights of the Blood Ver.-!

She’s up for preorder from today!!
