I’ve been hanging this Kyubey off all sorts of different things!!
Off my finger, off the ankles of all sorts of figures and even on the edge of the ping-pong table. The figure is almost worth it for they Kyubey alone! :P But of course, he is just an extra to the main wonderful figure you see here:


The first of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica 1/8th scale figures:
Madoka Kaname!!
A lovely 1/8th scale figure of the main character from the anime series ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘! She is posed in a lovely dynamic position based on a key visual used for the anime.
The final product is absolutely fantastic!!

Most of the staff are really impressed that even after mass production the final version came out pretty much identically to the prototype figure! Tsukki from the production team really must have worked hard to get this quality out!! I’m certain anyone who picks her up will be quite satisfied – if you’re not sure if you want her, then I think you might change your mind after seeing just how lovely she looks – prepare yourself! :P


This is how she looks from the back!

She is in a lovely pose with her whole body kind of twisting slightly. The skirt is so puffy which makes it absolutely huge – I’m sure it was quite the task to get the balance looking right with this skirt, but she really looks perfect from any angle. Oda-P was directing the design for the figure, and I’m told he paid great attention to making sure the figure looked balanced from all sides!


The ‘Madoka Pink’ came out perfectly!

Those who watched the live broadcast awhile back with Max Watanabe will know that getting this pink color right was a very difficult task. Hiro was working on the coloring for this figure, and apparently had the same trouble. But as you can see, it came out wonderfully in the end! She looks beautiful!!

Plus, you can hang QB off her arm like this – so cute!!


Beautiful sculpting all the way down to her toes!

The shoes are coated in a shiny enamel paint. Even the soles of the shoe and the black line separating it look incredible! It almost seems like a waste to see such small parts end up so detailed – but it shows you just how high the quality standards are for the figure as a whole!


Even when I zoom up close she still looks flawless!

The thin lines from her breasts down to her skirt were painted on using mask painting. The lines are literally smaller than a millimeter! The factory workers impress me every single time….

The skirt also has a lovely faint gradient. It’s actually used all over the figure, not only on the skirt – but it’s easy to see on the skirt! :P


Can you see all the gradient painting in this photo…?

It’s quite hard to tell in this picture, but there is a gradient on Kyubey, the ribbon around her neck, her puffy sleeves, the frills on her outfit and the skirt!

Personally I’m really impressed with the graident on the inner red frills on her sleeves. It’s such a small, almost unnoticeable area, but even so the extra effort is put in! This is where the finer quality of figures comes in!


You can also let her hold her bow!

She has a replaceable wrist part which lets you pose her holding her weapon of choice – the bow! I really don’t know how I would choose to display her!!

The stand uses a clear plastic with a red gradient. It’s simple, but still looks great! Apparently if you push it down hard it sticks on like a suction disk. :P


All the Madokas displayed together!

A special service shot for those who read all the way to the end… :P
Sayaka-chan’s prototype figure is complete!!

I was going to show a picture from the front, but then Hiro told me the face still hasn’t gone through it’s final adjustments… so I wasn’t allowed to. I thought she looked adorable as she was! :P
