A promise that continues on into the future.

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’ll be taking a look at…

Sakura Kinomoto: Always Together ~Pinky Promise~

This scale figure has been created as part of a collaboration project between CLAMP and Good Smile Company in celebration of CLAMP’s 30th Anniversary and Good Smile Company’s 20th Anniversary. The figure is based on an illustration specially drawn by CLAMP featuring Sakura Kinomoto from the manga series “Cardcaptor Sakura”, which is celebrating its own 25th Anniversary. Sakura’s beautiful dress featuring plenty of frills and pearl decorations, her gorgeous flower bouquet and lovely smiling face have all been faithfully recreated, capturing the charm of the original illustration. Be sure to add this masterpiece commemorative figure to your collection.

This special Good Smile Company 20th Anniversary commemorative figure is based on a special illustration by CLAMP, who is celebrating their own 30th Anniversary this year!

The figure’s clock that serves as a reminder of the time spent together, her lively flower bouquet, gorgeous frill and pearl adorned outfit and the freesia flowers extending into the sky…

All of these motifs have been brought together into one spectacular scale figure, with even parts not visible in the original illustration faithfully created in immaculate detail.

▲Just take a look at her dynamically flowing skirt and the freesia decorations!

The way the details of the original illustration have been captured in figure form is quite incredible, but the way these details are interpreted in 3D space is another overall highlight, and one entirely unique to the figure medium.

For example, I want you to take a look at her bouquet and the freesia on the base of the figure!

Both of these flower features of the figure are beautifully drawn in the original illustration, but in figure form, the freesia flowers have been recreated with translucent parts and glasslike paintwork, adding another layer of detail to the figure!

The freesia works to connect the large, heavy base and Sakura’s delicate, lightweight dress, giving the figure an even more gorgeous appearance.

This figure was created as a hand-sculpted and 3D-sculpted hybrid.

Sakura herself and her dress were both sculpted by hand, while the base, freesia, bouquet, crown, clock frame and the decorations of her outfit were all created with 3D sculpting software.

The hand-sculpted portions were handled by Takayuki Kawahara, while the production of the 3D sculpted sections was directed by Good Smile Company production team member Keroriso.

△Takayuki Kawahara also helped create Sakura Kinomoto: Stars Bless You!

The team made all kinds of minute adjustments to the figure throughout the production process.

A great deal of attention and care was required to bring out the strengths of this hybrid production process and make the figure look as beautiful as possible, but we are very happy to be able to present it to the world!

This product is a culmination of various important anniversaries, and one that showcases Good Smile Company’s level of skill and technical prowess.

Up until now and from here on forevermore, we hope our figures will always be close to help you enjoy your favorite characters and series.

This wish has been incorporated into the name of this figure.

We hope you add her to your collection!
