Wonder Festival 2013 (Winter)!
A big thank you to everyone!! (Once again!)
This is a photo of the WonHobby 17 booth! So many people came by to enjoy the festivities with us!! There were so many people that it actually became too crowded to get a good look at everything sometimes… my apologies to everyone who wasn’t able to get a look at everything they wanted to see!
But that’s exactly why this blog exists! Everyone who didn’t get a good look at the event will find photos of all the new figures right here!!
All rhe figures that were on display at WonFes have now been returned to the GSC offices!
But very shortly they’ll be taken to the upcoming Figure Maker Exhibition!
All the sculptors are hard at work fixing up any scratches or bumps that the figures might have got at WonFes. Now that WonFes has ended and everything should be calming down, everyone is still just as busy as ever!! :P
1/8th Scale Racking Miku 2012 ver.!
GSR&Studie with TeamUKYO’ is a racing team that took part in the 2012 season SUPER GT300. The official mascot of the team, ‘Racing Miku’ was designed by GAN, and has now been transformed into a 1/8th scale figure for fans to enjoy!
It’s a figure filled with highlights such as her unique transparent costume, detailed paintwork throughout the figure, and the dynamic sculpting of her hair!
FREEing’s Racing Miku was a 1/7th scale, but this one is 1/8th scale!!
Both of them are so cute!! I think that FREEing’s version had a slightly more mature air to it, while GSC’s version has more of a youthful charm! I’ve already done a review of FREEing’s version, which you can find here:
– FREEing’s 1/7th Scale Racing Miku: 2012 ver. –
This is how she looks from the back!
Her twintails twirl about behind her giving the figure some amazing volume!
The dynamic sculpting really makes it look as if the wind is blowing through her hair! It’s beautiful!
Her cheeks look so soft and squishy!
They look so cute that I almost can’t help but put out my finger and poke them!!
Just look at her modest bust, not to mention the beautiful body-line between her collarbone and shoulder – I could stare at her in wonder all day long!!
I also love the area around her hips!
She has such a lovely slender build, and I can’t get enough of how soft her skin looks around her hips!! You can easily make out exactly where her thighs, hips and waist are – which is very important on a figure of a cute girl like this!
Her outfit is also incredibly detailed!
FREEing’s Racing Miku has a glossy looking outfit, but GSC’s version instead makes use of shiny pearl white paint!
Another very important highlight of the figure is everyone’s favorite armpits… but I still think the area around the hips is the best for me! I was trying to figure out why exactly I like it so much, and I came to the conclusion that it’s because the vivid 3D figure captures the cute 2D look so very perfectly!
One shot that couldn’t be left out! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
It’s my job to make sure everyone is happy with what they see, and that’s the only reason I chose to take such a low angle photo! I swear it wasn’t for my own benefit!! :P
Her amazing twintails!
The way her hair is twisting and turning in every direction looks absolutely amazing! It’s not only beautiful, but also still looks so amazingly natural…
I can only imagine how much work went into making this look so great!!
The whole figure has a light color scheme!
It makes her looks so light and airy, which personally I find to be lovely! The subtle coloring on her hair is also wonderful… the paintwork here must have been so difficult!
FREEing’s version has more solid colors, while GSC’s version has lighter feeling to it… I suppose which one everyone will prefer is down to personal taste!
