211: Figure - PVC/Nendo/Preview: Preview of 1/8 Madoka and Nendo Ai

A cute little hanging Kyubey!!

The first of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica 1/8th scale figures:
Madoka Kaname!!

A lovely 1/8th scale figure of the main character from the anime series ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘! She is posed in a lovely dynamic position based on a key visual used for the anime.

The final product is absolutely fantastic!!

Most of the staff are really impressed that even after mass production the final version came out pretty much identically to the prototype figure! Tsukki from the production team really must have worked hard to get this quality out!! I’m certain anyone who picks her up will be quite satisfied – if you’re not sure if you want her, then I think you might change your mind after seeing just how lovely she looks – prepare yourself!

This is how she looks from the back!

She is in a lovely pose with her whole body kind of twisting slightly. The skirt is so puffy which makes it absolutely huge – I’m sure it was quite the task to get the balance looking right with this skirt, but she really looks perfect from any angle. Oda-P was directing the design for the figure, and I’m told he paid great attention to making sure the figure looked balanced from all sides!

The ‘Madoka Pink’ came out perfectly!

Those who watched the live broadcast awhile back with Max Watanabe will know that getting this pink color right was a very difficult task. Hiro was working on the coloring for this figure, and apparently had the same trouble. But as you can see, it came out wonderfully in the end! She looks beautiful!!

Plus, you can hang QB off her arm like this – so cute!!

Beautiful sculpting all the way down to her toes!

The shoes are coated in a shiny enamel paint. Even the soles of the shoe and the black line separating it look incredible! It almost seems like a waste to see such small parts end up so detailed – but it shows you just how high the quality standards are for the figure as a whole!

Even when I zoom up close she still looks flawless!

The thin lines from her breasts down to her skirt were painted on using mask painting. The lines are literally smaller than a millimeter! The factory workers impress me every single time….

The skirt also has a lovely faint gradient. It’s actually used all over the figure, not only on the skirt – but it’s easy to see on the skirt!

Can you see all the gradient painting in this photo…?

It’s quite hard to tell in this picture, but there is a gradient on Kyubey, the ribbon around her neck, her puffy sleeves, the frills on her outfit and the skirt!

Personally I’m really impressed with the graident on the inner red frills on her sleeves. It’s such a small, almost unnoticeable area, but even so the extra effort is put in! This is where the finer quality of figures comes in!

You can also let her hold her bow!

She has a replaceable wrist part which lets you pose her holding her weapon of choice – the bow! I really don’t know how I would choose to display her!!

The stand uses a clear plastic with a red gradient. It’s simple, but still looks great! Apparently if you push it down hard it sticks on like a suction disk.

All the Madokas displayed together!

Nendoroid Petite Puella Magi Madoka Magica goes on sale this month!
I’ll be doing a review of them soon, so watch out for it! (`・ω・´)ゞ

The first of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica 1/8th scale figures:
Madoka Kaname!!

She shipped out from GSC yesterday!!

If you’re lucky, you should be able to find her in your local stores today! If you have any order or sales queries, be sure to get in contact with our partner shops!

A special service shot for those who read all the way to the end…
Sayaka-chan’s prototype figure is complete!!

I was going to show a picture from the front, but then Hiro told me the face still hasn’t gone through it’s final adjustments… so I wasn’t allowed to. I thought she looked adorable as she was!

Anyway, that means the prototype review is going to be delayed a little bit, but she will be here in a few days! Look forward to it!

Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛

So… I can give you a look from behind!

Well, I can’t show the expressions, but we can still look at her like this! We’ll take a look at the official photos instead, but I’m still a bit sad that I can’t take photos myself. Anyway, let’s look at the official photos from the professional!

From the anime Amagami SS:
Nendoroid Ai Nanasaki!

From the anime that has just picked up it’s second season ‘Amagami SS’ comes the second Nendoroid of the series – the newest member of the swimming team, Ai Nanasaki.

She comes with three expression parts, including an embarrassed face, a smiling face and an exited face! To be able to spend everyday with this lovely lady… I know she’ll give me the strength to get through the day.

First up is the smiling face!

She also comes with a school bag as an optional extra to display her on her way to school. The bag ic connected to the hand, but the hand removes from the arm, meaning you can put it on other characters easily!

Next up, the exited expression!

Her cheeks are all blushed with a cute smile across her face! It’s so cute! If you combine it with the two bent arms like this she looks so innocent and defenseless!


She even comes with parts lifting up her skirt!!

I don’t mean to spoil the show… but those who have seen it will know this isn’t actually her panties – it’s just a swimsuit, so this isn’t really a naughty picture at all! You can even see the blouse beneath her skirt if you look carefully – it’s nice to see things like this that you can’t normally see on figures! But a pose like this combined with the ‘behind the knees’ pose from Haruka …. this Amagami Nendoroid series has some very unique parts!

Displayed together with Haruka-senpai!
This expression doesn’t actually come with Ai though, it’s just a full-in! ヽ(*゚д゚)ノ

She will be on the GSC site tomorrow!

If you have any sales or preorder questions, be sure to contact our partner shops!

But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
