Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
There are always new sweets and candy that release in Autumn, and I’m looking forward to trying all of them! It’s the season where chocolate and cream-type ice cream seem to be where my eyes go first! ♪
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
The 1/8th Scale:
|From the popular anime ‘Attack on Titan’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the main character, Eren Yeager. The figure is based on the cover illustration of the first volume of the anime’s Blu-ray/DVD, which features Eren ready to cut down on a Titan in a powerful, confident pose.
He looks great displayed alone, but even more epic when displayed with the previously announced 1/8th scale Mikasa Ackerman, so be sure to display them together!
With the upcoming movie version of ‘Attack on Titan’ coming this autumn it’s a great time to see the titan-exterminating main character Eren! Just like Mikasa Ackerman, he has been sculpted based on the cover of the Blu-ray & DVD jacket! ♪
The amazing dynamic pose with gritted teeth and furrowed brows really brings out Eren’s determination!
If you look up from a low angle you can stare right into his confident eyes! Just like Mikasa, his Vertical Manoeuvring Equipment has been sculpted in unbelievable detail!!
I could stare at this back for ages!!
But the area I really want to personally push…
…is his neck!!
The tight, sinewy muscles that you will only ever see on a male figure! They look amazing!! Speaking of attention to detail, be sure to also take a look at the included base! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
The base is made to look like a chimney from the series, and even the inside has been carefully detailed! The old, deteriorated look with bricks showing recreate the setting of the series!
Not to mention that even the soles of his shoes have kept their pattern! (｀・ω・´)
I really love the way that his vertical manoeuvring equipment has been made to look ‘used’!
It makes the figure and series seem all the more realistic! There is no way the equipment should be all shiny and new after what it has been through!
Another area that I don’t want to see go unnoticed would be here! ★
To be more specific, his thighs which has held tight by a number of belts!
Just look how they are squeezing on his skin!!
The whole figure really gives you a feel for him making use of all the muscles in his body to amazing effect! The belts also add a soft, touchable feeling to his skin though!
The contrast between the solid equipment, belts and boots and the softer looking shirt and jacket is emphasized by the sculpting and paintwork to create a figure that looks so very real that he really seems to be right there with you!
Eren right on his way to starting the extermination of the Titans…!
