Today’s main act!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Kagamine Rin: Tony Ver.!☆

Following on from the previously released Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka comes a 1/7th scale figure of Kagamine Rin based on the illustration of her by popular illustrator Tony!The unique feeling of Tony’s illustrations has been faithfully preserved in figure form through gentle colors and translucent parts, all sculpted in intricate detail for fans to enjoy. Careful attention has been given to all aspects of the figure, including the unique appearance of her blond hair and the high-quality look of her shirt through a shiny pearl paint. Enjoy the energetic charm of this adorable Kagamine Rin in your collection!

Rin-chan!! (´□`。)

The female side of the ‘powerful and charming’ Vocaloid twins – Kagamine Rin has been sculpted in Tony illustration style!! The combination of light colors, translucent parts and pearl paintwork really captures the beauty of Tony’s illustrations in figure form!! Such lovely detail as well!! (。・ω・)ノ゙

I wouldn’t be surprised if the figure started moving right before my eyes! She looks so alive and ready to start performing – it definitely matches up with her lively personality and voice!!

This is how she looks from the back!

Standing on her tip toes to reach as far up as possible… and look at those leg covers, the back of her knees, those lovely thighs, the large sleeve holes on her top showing off her smooth skin… not to mention her lovely spiked blond hair and the ribbon to top it all off!

Everything that makes Rin so cute has been faithfully included!! ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و

The use of semi-transparent parts and pearl paintwork on the hair also gives it an amazing level of detail! ♡

△ A nice rendition of  Tony’s unique touch! ♪

In her hand she holds a mike, ready to let the world hear her voice!

You can also see even her nails are painted to match her image color! Not only that but the shape of the fingers and hand looks fantastic! 

By the way, this is actually the third Vocaloid figure made by Max Factory based on Tony’s artwork! The past two were released quite awhile back!

Hatsune Miku: Tony ver.

△ Released March 2011


Megurine Luka: Tony ver.

△ Released July 2012

The Tony figures really have such a unique feel to them, just like his illustrations! ♡ Anyway, let’s get back to Rin-chan! (●´ω`●)

She looks like she is in the middle of an amazing stage thanks to the energetic pose on one leg with one arm up in the air!!  The way the outfit and body are sculpted to match up with the movement is something that people often overlook on figures, but you can really see it beautifully on this figure! Take a closer look at the creases all over her outfit, or…

The sailor collar and belt accessory!

How about the way her top is pulled up a bit due to her raised arm! 

Or the fluttering of the ribbon on her chest!

△ The bunched-up feel of the leg covers are also great!

The creases in her shorts are also amazing, and the contrast between the black shorts and the lovely pale skin of her stomach and thighs is beautiful!!

Her facial expression keeps that lively feeling of the figure, but it also has a bit of a mature, almost sultry charm to it! (/ω\)

△ You happened to meet eyes with her during the performance!

The figure is really so fascinating for me to look at that it’s hard to put into words!! 

The figure has been sculpted by Max Factory’s Chieri-san, the same sculptor behind the previous two figures in the series!! The whole figure is best described as overflowing with life… I really wish you could come and see the real thing for yourselves!! ♡

Her base is made in the shape of some piano keys!

△ Rin-chan stands on the one key that is down! ★

Her twin’s figure comes with a similar base, and the two of them can be connected together like so!

Even the base alone is amazing!!

It really brings out the musical world of the Vocaloids! ♡
It also really makes me want to display them together!! (*´Д`)=з

But I have some good news for everyone who wants to do that…

Kagamine Len: Tony Ver. will be up for preorder at the same time!

I’ll be taking a more in-depth look at Len on tomorrow’s blog!٩( )人( ᐖ )۶

♥︎ Today’s Date ♥︎

The night sky is clear tonight at Miyajima (Shrine Island) and the moon is at its full!! There is a small board walk near the shrine for visitors where they can have this scenic view of the sea as the moonlight reflects on the night waters.

An ideal place for couples to walk at night.
