This is part of a certain figure. Who is it?
Is a quick quiz I ran on twitter! Not surprisingly, I got the answer from loads of people all at once! I was so happy to see people could figure it out from just this!
So today we’ll be taking a much more detailed look at her!
The 6th in the Bakemonogatari 1/8th scale figure series!
Following on Hitagi Senjougahara, Nadeko Sengoku, Suruga Kanbaru, Tsubasa Hanekawa and Mayoi Hachikuji from the popular anime series, ‘Bakemonogatari’, comes this loveable figure of the vampire that bit Araragi – Shinobu Oshino!
This is how she looks from the back!
I’m sure there are not many who would display this figure with the back showing, but even so – the detail on the back is amazing. There are doughnuts overflowing everywhere even on the back! When I first saw the chocolate doughnut on in the bottom right I really thought to myself ‘did they really need to add a chocolate doughnut here?!’ – but it just adds that little extra to the figure!
Let me start with this:
She is too adorable!!!
I’m sure you can tell from the photo here – but the quality is absolutely outstanding as well! But that’s definitely no surprise, as the paint work for this figure was done by the marvelous Hiro! Just look at those lovely eyes!
Let’s take a closer look at the figure’s base!
For the most part, the base is made up of all sorts of doughnuts, but if you look up close you’ll notice some interesting other items as well – all items from the other characters from the series!
The wooden shoes in the back are Meme’s.
The cat ears and glasses in the front are from Hanekawa-san!
I swear that this angle is just to look at the base!
I must say those legs are absolutely stunning, while we’re at it.
You can see Araragi’s head, Senjougahara’s stapler and fried eggs for Karen and Tsukihi! Nadeko’s hat was just in front of this but didn’t get into the picture, sorry! ;_;
The huge bag is Mayoi-chan’s, and the bandaged hand is from Kanbaru-san!
I love the way that even the bandaged up hand is holding a doughnut – so much character in just one figure!
Her helmet is removable!
Characters with a removable hat often end up with a strange feeling once the hat is removed, but just look at this – it still looks wonderful!! I think personally I prefer Shinobu-chan without the helmet, so I’ll be doing the rest of the review with her like this!
But really, she is just so cute either way! (*ﾟ∀ﾟ)=3
That collarbone! Collarbone!!
Plus I’m sure I don’t need to point it out, but the way her one-piece is falling off her shoulder like that gives a nice sexy side to the figure as well! So much detail put into just a shoulder – it’s unbelievable!!
Here is a view from the side!
I said in the past that the knee socks on Sejougahara were amazing, but I’m equally impressed by the one-piece barefoot combo. It adds this strange erotic kind of feeling that really does the figure justice. It just wouldn’t have been the same even if she had been wearing sandals or anything like that – the bare skin from the feet up to the calves is really nice. The bare feet also gives a nice laid back feeling to the figure…
This is how she looks from above!
The one-piece has fine little creases all over it – it really recreates the original illustration in figure form absolutely perfectly! The ribbon just above her hips also looks great!
Today’s #1 Shot!
