Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Today I’m going to be taking a look at a figure scheduled to go up for preorder later this week from FREEing…
figma The Thinker!
‘The Table Museum’ is a series of figma figures based on famous works of art that almost anyone will recognize! The first in the series is the classic sculpture by Auguste Rodin – The Thinker!
The Thinker was originally a centrepiece of a sculptural group work called ‘The Gates of Hell’, but now the silent, pondering sculpture can be found in textbooks around the world. The figma version is of course articulated, so while you can pose the classic ‘Thinker’ pose, you can also place him in a variety of different poses to bring out a completely different charm to the work of art!
· Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out the classic Thinker pose, or various other action poses
Famous artworks becoming figmas!
The work on this figma series is the same FREEing behind some past figmas such as figma Egashira 2:50! You can find more items by FREEing here!
“Let’s make classic art more fun!”
Is what was going through FREEing’s playful mind when this series came to life! It will definitely provide some very interesting variety to the figma series! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
He looks so full of grief from the back!
The bronze paintwork and uneven look of the original sculpture are all faithfully preserved!
I really love the way the colors have been done! ♡
It really looks like a sculpture that has slowly been degrading over time! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
The stand features a special little area for his feet to ensure he stays securely in place even in the classic Thinker pose!
The “Thinking” pose is made using a special part!
The rounded back and clenched fist placed at his mouth are part of a special upper body part!This part combined with his feet placed into the base allows for a quick and easy posing of the classic ‘Thinker’ pose! ♡
Obviously he also comes with a standard straight body!
Which means you can enjoy him just like any other figma as well! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
You can place him in all sorts of interesting poses!
Place the stand up on his knees instead…
Pose him lying lazily on the floor…
Fighting against some strange evolved creatures…
Doing some exercises…
… or even having a conversation with someone!
Not to mention there are so many other options!
Just think of all the original poses you can come up with!
It was so much fun taking pictures that I actually came up with a little story as well… here we go!
“Phew… taking all those poses was tiring…”
“W-What was that?! So bright!”
“Eh? I’m trying to sleep now…”
＼Hurry up! We want to see it!／
“J-Just hold on a second, I’m trying to think!”
… the end!
Be sure to grab the figure for yourself and make your own Thinker story!
figma The Thinker!
He’ll be up for preorder later this week!
Look forward to it! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

I also decided to take a Halloween Photo!
＼Walking together with a Zombie!／
This pose uses the bent back parts for the Thinking pose while still standing up! It makes him look rather zombie like!
The zombie beside him is none other than figma Flyboy Zombie! ♪
I want to take them out and take some more Halloween photos!
I look forward to future Table Museum figures too!!
