♥︎ Happy Birthday!! ♥︎


Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I hope everyone is having a lovelyevening! Today I’m going to be taking a look at Phat Company’s 1/8th scale…

Takane Shijou!♪

From the anime series ‘IDOLM@STER’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the idol with a refined but mysterious atmosphere about her, Takane Shijou! The pose is based on the illustration by director Atsushi Nishigori seen on the 6th volume of the Blu-ray & DVD jacket for the anime series!

Takane has been sculpted in an elegant pose with her finger to her lips as she looks ahead with a slight twist in her hips. The tips of her hair make use of translucent parts which help emphasize the mysterious atmosphere about her.

Ooooooooooohhhhhhh!! (*´Д`)=з

Her soft, long hair is flowing all around her and the body hailed as one of the best in 765 Production has been sculpted beautifully!! The ‘Silver Queen’ Takane Shijou is here!

Takane is the 5th figure to join Phat! Company’s IDOLM@STER Anime DVD & Blu-ray Jacket Illustration Series! The previous figures in the series can be found here:

☆ Hibiki Ganaha (Released in June 2014)
☆ Iori Minase (Released in June 2014)
☆ Yayoi Takatsuki (Released in January 2015)
☆ Miki Hoshii (Releasing in February 2015)

Plus after Takane, Makoto Kikuchi is also coming!

Perhaps you’ll get to see what else is coming at WonFes next month too!!

But anyway, let’s get back to Takane! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

She has her finger to her lips, as if keeping a secret! ε=(。・д・。)

The finger and forward gaze really bring out her mature charm!

This is how she looks from the back! ★

Her hair made from translucent parts has two different layers! ♡

The effect on the color created by the two layers really looks magnificent! The slight pink gradient toward the tips is also lovely, and the wavy appearance is recreated so well!  (●´ω`●)

(・∀・) “Also take note of her outfit!”

We’re joined by the figure’s planner, Takamatsu!

 (・∀・) “Everything from the ribbon and creases on her blouse to the stole gently wrapped around her body have been very carefully sculpted!” 

The way the shoulder straps of her skirt are pushed aside by her breasts is also very effective!

This figure is based on the cover illustration of the 6th volume of the Blu-ray & DVD of the anime, right?

(・∀・) “That’s right! We did make a few little changes here and there to be better suited to a figure, but we kept to the original illustration as best as possible! The sculptor was once again Yusuke Masaki, matching up with all the previous figures!”

The S-shape formed by her hips and beautiful curves that it creates really have been preserved in the figure wonderfully! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “If you display her with Ganaha Hibiki and compare the sizes, you might notice that the height of the characters has also been faithfully considered!”

Oooooooohhhhh!! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ!

Even though Hibiki is bending over a bit, you can definitely see the difference between their heights!

(・∀・) “In 1/8th scale Takane is about 169cm while Hibiki is 152cm! Displaying them all together really looks great and gives producers an authentic feel for their height!” 

Definitely something I’m happy to see! These were the two characters on the cover of the 6th volume, so it only makes sense to display them together like this! ♪

(・∀・) “Also note the difference in texture between the stockings and leather shoes!”

The shape of the ankle bones that you can just see through the stockings is amazing!! (´□`。)

Not to mention from the back you get a good look at both her thighs and behind her knees!

The back-seamed stocking suits her classic outfit so nicely! 

(・∀・) “Takane’s outfit is very elegant, giving her a whole different charm to that of the other idols!” 

The combination of the mature pose and the mischievous pose are so effective!

(・∀・) “Just like her beautiful singing voice, the Queen has been sculpted to show off her refined charm! I hope Takane fans around the world will enjoy adding her to their collections!” 

Be sure to add the ‘Silver Queen’ to your collection! ♪
