Of Bats, Butterflies and Roses ~ The Warrior

Here comes another Ignis write-up, this time it’s Alter version of Ignis. While Max Factory Ignis focus on the feminine side of Ignis, Alter version focus on the warrior side of her. Sculpted by Takahashi Tsuyoshi, Ignis is in a battle pose that really show her warrior side.

Compare to Max Factory elaborate sculp, this Ignis is a much simpler affair. She comes with a simple white base with the game title embossed to it. The figure itself is well balance and able to stand without the base and I think she’s pretty safe from the danger of leaning.

The first thing that collectors that already have Max Factory Ignis will notice when they pick up Alter Ignis is the color. The color on Alter Ignis is much more duller and darker. Other than that the paint job is still good. I went for a bamboo forest setting for this photo session but because I have no idea where to find bamboo that I can use, bamboo stick will have to do. Added in some weapons that I got to make it looks like Ignis was in a fight, some blood would have been a nice addition as well, but I do not have the coloring for it.

In my opinion she doesn’t have as much nice angle that I can shot from, her best angle is direct from the front. Her left palm is also partially blocking her face so it’s was difficult to get a nice shot of her face.

I got Alter Ignis before I manage to get Max Factory version, though not as impressive as Max Factory Ignis, I like the way she’s portray in this version and this is the only Ignis that truly show her warrior side.

Range Murata PSE Pro #05

My first exposure to Range Murata work was his character design in the anime Blue Submarine No.6 and more recently Last Exile but at the time I have no idea who’s Range Murata. Fast forward to last month, when I was at my local hobby store, paying for my Rosanna figure I chat with the guy there a bit about Shunya’s work. Later he mention about Range Murata and showed me some pictures of his work, especially UJ14 and some of his PSE trading figures. Only then I realise that he was the designer for one of my favourite anime Last Exile.

My attempt to hunt down his range of figure was in vain until I visit one of the branch of my local hobby store. That was where I found this figure PSE Pro #05. The figure itself is quite small being a 1/10, so I thought it would be quite cheap, but to my surprise it wasn’t, it cost as much as a 1/6 figure. Due to that I only made the purchase about a month later and luckily she was still there or I would really have regretted of not getting her sooner. Well enough of my ranting, now to the pictures ^^

A very simple setting for these photos.

Even though the figure is quite small, only at about 15cm, she’s quite detail, especially on her bike.

A little bit of stray paint on the sole of her boot, but only noticeable at close-up. The overall sculpt and paint work are clean and smooth.

Overall I am very satisfied with the quality of the figure, I have never bought anything by Beagle before but it seems they make quality stuff. Range Murata stuff are quite unique in design, I am definitely gonna be on a look out for any new stuff from him.

Saber vs Saber

After the release of Revoltech Saber, Kaiyodo follow it up with Saber-Alter for their Revoltech 2G line. Saber-Alter came with the same packaging as Saber, only the colors are different. Included with her is an additional hair piece with her mask attached, her usual black and red sword and Excalibur. She comes with the same stand as Saber as well.

On a barren wasteland, two warriors stood face to face unmove, until suddenly an unknown voice cuts through the silent “ACTION!!!”.

With lighting reflexes both warriors spring to action, closing the distance between them in mere seconds, sword raise and ready for battle. The black warriors lunges with a foward thrust, easily block by the blue and silver warrior. The fight goes, both warriors slashing and parrying, thrusting and blocking, the sound of metal against metal rang continuously like a symphony of death.

As their dance of death continues, the black warrior suddenly jumps up into the air and “CUT!!!!. Here comes the unknown voice again, and what does the voice means “Cut”, both warriors are already cutting each other and more importantly where does the voice comes from.

And we see a head, a big head to be exact with a familiar looking yellow ribbons, who could this person be, who seems to be giving order to the two deadly warriors.

Unknown voice: No! No! No! both of you are suppose to jump together!
Warriors: Ok.
Unknown voice: ACTION!!!

And the warriors continue to fight, bringing their dances of death to the air.

And what is this, it looks like the blue and silver warrior is defeated.

“CUT!!!” again comes the unknown voice. And what do we have here, we finally get to see the owner of the unknown voice. Seems like a school girl with a really big head, what are they feeding kids these days.

She seems to be scolding the black warrior. It’s either she’s very brave or very stupid, anyway….

Schoolgirl with big head: NO!!!! You are suppose to lose remember, you are the bad guy and the bad guy don’t win, lets do this again.
Black warrior: Ooooo… I’ll get you for this.

Seems like the situation been reserve and the black warrior kneel down in defeat. “CUT!!!!” came the voice again, I wonder what is wrong now.

Mirei-san 海麗さん

Anyone who has been following my blog would know how much trouble I had to go through in getting her. There was a pre-order for her at Play-Asia before she was release but at the time I wasn’t that interested in getting her. After seeing the photos Danny posted at his blog, it got me really interested in getting this absolutely cute and sexy figure. So as usual I contacted my friend and only then did I found out that she’s actually a Kotobukiya online store exclusive and most shop that have her are selling at a premium price.

Fast forward about a month later, I searching through numerous sites for her I found that there’s a US release around end of June. I found her on pre-order at Anime Wild and without thinking too much about it I quickly pre-ordered her, which is something I’ll come to regret later. I should be happy that I manage to pre-order her right, but no, I waited and waited for her to arrive, a week past, 2 weeks…. and my numerous e-mail to them asking them about it did not get any reply. Later my local store have her in stock, and since I do not know what happen to my shipment from Anime Wild, I bought her from my local store instead, slightly more expensive though.

More than a week past and to my surprise she arrive after more than a month of waiting. So that’s how I ended up with two Mirei ^^. I posted in a local forum that I wanted to sell my second Mirei and I quickly got response and a few days after that, it’s time for me to say goodbye to my second Mirei as I ship her off.


Click for larger image

Mirei is sculpted by Houjun Otoyama and she comes with an extra hand and hair piece, so you can pose her with her hair down or up, and with her hand on her leg or holding a pen. I would have prefer her to come with the glasses as in the illustration though.

She’s very well sculpted and painted, except for some painting chipping of on her right foot due to the removable shoe. That was more due to me putting on the shoe a bit too tight though.

Mirei and pastries ^^, good thing she can sit on the sofa, tried to sit her on the big pillow but that didn’t work though, so it become a sleeping pose instead :P

Mire in the office, this was the reason why it took me so long to do a Mirei photo-shoot. It took me quite sometime to build the wall and the table I am using for this shot, it wasn’t as easy to make as I first though haha. A lot more props were use in this shots but I think it came out pretty good ^^.

A final closeup shot of Mirei kawaii face. I did a lot of shots of her with her hair up as I prefer that look more ^^. She just look a lot more cuter and sexier with her hair up ^^.

Well after all the trouble I went through, I am really glad that I manage to get her, or two of her in the end, though the other one was sold off, I still own her for a few days. She’s the second figure based on Shunya Yamashita’s illustration that I have in my collection, the third was suppose to be Non-non but I have cancel my order on her, I’ll be getting Cocona instead which I like more.

The Last Love Song on This Little Planet

Chise from the anime, manga and OVA Saishū Heiki Kanojo or She, the Ultimate Weapon. It’s actually a love story even though the main character herself is a military weapon, but the war is never really the focus, instead the story focus on Chise and Shuji reaction to her ever increasing power and their relationship.

I got this figure during Hobby Search restock, she was restock quite sometime ago I think, and I only found out when I decided to go through Kotobukiya listing at Hobby Search page by page. So it’s good to go through the listing once in a while you might just find something good ^^. She’s not a really small figure, same height as MF Mikuru, but her box is very compact as her base is place behind her instead of at the bottom of the box. This allows Kotobukiya to make the box a lot smaller, probably the smallest figure box I have.

She comes with a base that looks like rubbles on the ground, but I kinda wish that they didn’t place the custom base on top of a plain white base though.


Click for larger image

I remembered vaguely at the last episode near the end during Chise final battle, a lot of stuff starts to punch through the clouds, so this setting is somewhat based on that. I could be wrong since it’s been a long time since I watch the anime ^^, but then I think this is a good setting for her photo shoot. The return of the iron rods hehe.

For a 2 years old figure, she’s pretty well sculpted and painted, though it’s not as detail as recently release figures. I am not sure if she resemble her anime counterpart since I can’t remember what she really looks like in the anime ^^.

The wings are detachable but she’ll look funny without the wings though since her clothes are torn at the back. The wing are painted pearl white with a slight metallic looks to it, very nice effect.

This last two shots was added when I remembered that I bought a wrapping paper specifically for her photoshot. The paper looks like cracked ground, so I think it’s quite suitable for her. Couldn’t think of what else to put so I just reuse some bricks ^^.

Overall a very well made figure though not as detail as it could be, but can be choosy since I think this was the only figure of her that was release. A very nice figure added to my growing collection and it’s cheap too ^^.

The Angel from Hell

A lone figure stands on top of the building, unnoticed by the guards below. With guns in hands, the lone figure suddenly jumps off the edge of the building, twin guns blazing. In their confusion the guards never know what hits them, one by one they drop and by the time the lone figure landed, all the guards were down.

Standing up, this unknown assailant walks slowly into the warehouse, oblivious to the danger that waits inside, or does this person really know no fear. It’s other that should fear her, for she’s the Angel from Hell and no one can stand between her and the girl she’s trying to save, for Jo, Meg is everything to her.


Jo and Meg, image taken from Flamboyant by Ugetsu Hakua

OK I sucks at writing story haha, just trying something different, so I wrote something that Jo would do in-order to save Meg XD.

Anyway this figure of Jo from Alter, sculpted by Tanaka Touji was release quite a long time ago, in November 2005 to be exact. At the time I haven’t even started collecting figures yet, but I did watch the anime Burst Angel (Bakuretsu Tenshi) and have always like the character design in the anime. I manage to get this figure from a local forumer who was selling of some of his figures, the price was cheap and she was in good condition, the rest is history and one more figure is added to my growing collection. Now all I need to do is find Alter Meg and the duo will be complete.

A very well sculpted and painted figure with no noticeable flaw. The detail is good, with her wind blown jacket and scarf giving her a more dynamic look. The jacket does makes her back heavy though, which makes it impossible for her to stand without the base unless the jacket is taken off. There’s one very bad flaw though but only visible if the jacket is taken off.

This is the bad flaw, a very visible seamline on the joint between her arm and shoulder, but she looks better with the jacket on anyway so it’s ok I guess. At least the tattoo is detail enough. But with the jacket on only the arm tattoo is visible, hmmm I totally forgot to take a shot of the back tattoo XD.

Trying out something new with the following two shots. I have seen some pictures in Replicant Works where there’s a reflection of the figure in the shots. So wanted to try it out, and somehow it works but only if using black background though :) .

Overall she’s a very nice figure and the quality is as expected for something from Alter. Not sure whether it’s easy to get her now, but I am glad that I manage to buy her off another forumer, and save me some money in the process :) .

A shot of all the girls with guns figures that I have, and coincidentally all of them uses two guns and except for Natsuki, the rest are all from Alter.

Eureka Seven Vol. 10

Eureka Seven or Psalms of Planets Eureka Seven (交響詩篇エウレカセブン) as it is known in Japan. The anime is revolve around Renton and the group Gekkostate and also his relationship with the mysterious mecha pilot Eureka. The anime run from April 2005 to April 2006 for a total of 50 episodes. Three video games based on the anime were also produced and also a manga series. During it’s original Japanese run, it won multiple awards at the 2006 Tokyo International Anime Fair, it also won an award at the 20th Digital Content Grand Prix and voted “Best DVD series of the Year” by Anime Insider in 2006. – source from wikipedia

Eureka Seven Vol. 10 Special Edition

Finally got my Eureka Seven vol. 10, 2 more volumes to go and I’ll have the complete set and I can finally start watching it ^^. This volume contains episode 39-42, and comes with a white color t-shirt and Gravity Boy and Lifting Girl manga vol. 1 but there’s one thing it didn’t comes with, the slide in box that suppose to hold the DVD, t-shirt and stuff. Yup someone it got through QC even though it was very obvious something was missing haha. It’s ok though since I don’t use the box anyway, just finds it funny :D .

Super Dimension Fortress Macross ~ 超時空要塞マクロス

Macross was the one of the first anime that I watched and spark my interest in anime. I have been meaning to get the DVD for the series for the longest time since I never did manage to watch the whole thing on TV, but never got to it until now. I have just finish watching it before I wrote this post, and the feeling is great, the anime maybe old but it’s still a good anime ^^.

I guess some of the younger generation (yes I am not young anymore *sigh*) probably doesn’t know much about this series. Macross is a love story against the backdrop of an epic battle between human and alien forces. Yup despite all the mecha and fighting, it’s actually a love story between some of the main characters. The series also have some of the nicest songs in an anime, sang by her voice actress Mari Iijima who also wrote some of the songs in the series. For more information about this series just head over to this link.

This is probably the best Macross box set to be released. AnimeEigo digitally restored, enhanced and transfer this unedited and uncut version of the original Macross TV series. It was first release as a 3 box set and later was combined into a single box set. Included in this sets are detailed liner notes on each episodes, the mecha, characters and technology.

After watching this series again, I am looking forward to Macross F which will be release in 2008, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the original Macross. Macross F will be a direct sequel to Macross 7. I should probably take some time to watch Macross Zero, prequel to the original Macross, never did finish watching it when it was released as an OVA, the disc probably somewhere in my DVD album XD.

Totally forgot that I also have the soundtrack to the series, bought it quite a long time ago, disc still play fine though haha. It contains all the songs and music from the series.

Pumpkin Scissors

Pumpkin Scissors, I have no idea what the name means when I found out about this anime. After watching the first 4 episode and reading a bit about the anime on it’s official website, I finally gets what the title means.

The story began 3 years after the war has ended, as Lt. Alice Malvin takes command of the Imperial Army Intelligence Section III, that serve as an instrument of justice, protecting the people from power-mad nobles and soldiers turns bandit. The name Pumpkin Scissors according to Alice are the threat of corrupt people the group must face, who protect themselves with lies, power, money and many other layers like a pumpkin. Section III is the scissors that cuts through the layers and delivers justice to them.

I got Vol. 1 and 2 at the same time, and vol. 2 comes with a nice artbox for you to store the rest of the volumes. Shana agrees that Pumpkin Scissors is nice too ^^.

Some screen cap from vol. 1. Nice looking menu with Alice and Randel picture. The menu reminds me of the DVD menu from Band of Brothers, a great TV series btw.

Lt. Alice Malvin, not your usual cute type of character, she a very determined woman who strongly believe in what she’s doing and don’t mind getting her hand dirty while doing it. It’s interesting to see what other obstacle she gonna face and how she’ll conquer them. Being a noble from a powerful family helps too ^^.


Click for larger image

Corporal Randel Oland, he was in the 901-ATT, ATT stands for Anti-Tank-Trooper, unit during the war. A chance meeting in episode one with Alice, sees him joining Pumpkin Scissors in episode 2. He’s fearless in battle and can fight a tank with just his 13mm anti-tank gun. It seems he too believe in what Alice is trying to do, but there’s still a lot about him that’s not revealed yet.

The members of Pumpkin Scissors, the old guy is the Captain of the group, the guy with spec is Warrant Officer Martis, follow by Warrant Officer Oreldo. The other girl is Sergeant Major Lili Stecchin and the dog is Mercury who got demoted to Courier Private First Class in the first episode, after taking a bite at an officer’s head ^^.


Click for larger image

The first few episodes are pretty much stand alone but I believe as the story progress, a larger force at work will probably be revealed. Glad that I decide to pick up the DVD when it was release, it was actually on my to watch list when it was first release in Japan but I some how totally forgotten about it together with tons of other anime that I had probably forgotten that I wanted to watch it. A case of too many animes and not enough time XD.

Comic Fiesta 2007

After our first exhibit at Anime Fest in June, we were looking forward to Comic Fiesta ’07 which was held at Times Square last weekend. After all it’s one of the bigger anime event to be held locally, which means more visitors and more cosplayers.

My company dinner was on the day before we were gonna be exhibiting, so I was dead tired when I was back, and had to pack up the 20 figures to I’ll be bringing to the event. All together I use 2 big boxes and 2 smaller boxes for transport my figures, they were all wrapped only in paper, I was praying the whole time that nothing breaks during transport. Fortunately my prayer was answered phew. Took a photo of the boxes before I left home in the morning ^^.

Lots of photos after the jump, 56kers beware ^^.

The turn out for the event was good, lots of people around and as usual our booth was quite crowded ^^ with visitors taking photos. There’s dslr, handphone cam, PnS and any other electronics that can be use to take photos.

The aftermath, it’s time to go home, with everything pack and ready to go.


Click for larger image

Some stuff that I got for free haha coz as usual I didn’t buy anything XD.


Click for larger image

I find this event is much more exciting and happening than the previous one that we went to, probably coz they been having this for a few years now. The venue is nice and easily accessible, best of all the lighting is good, especially since our booth is near the window so we get some natural light as long as it doesn’t rain anyway.

There are more variety of cosplayers around, instead of just Naruto and Bleach, apparently there was a Shana but I didn’t saw her, though I did see Mikuru, see if you can spot her in the Hare Hare Yukai dance photos. Someone even setup a proper area for cosplayer to take photos, with clean background and lighting.

As usual our figures display are quite well received with lots of visitors taking photos. So this is something that we probably gonna do again, but definitely need to improve on the logistic haha, it’s still quite a nightmare XD. It was also great meeting some fellow figures collectors that visited our booth on that day, we should probably do a gathering of sort someday ^^.
