Went to the AnimeFest organize by Taylor’s University College Anime Club at Subang today. A friend of mine was selling his figures at a booth there, so me and 2 others collectors decided to display our stuff there as well. The event was quite small, with just 2 doujinshi booth, and 3 other commercial booths including my friend’s. We were actually expecting something bigger, so I guess we were a bit disappointed of the size but since this is the first even where we are opening a booth I guess it’s ok.

There were cosplay competition, singing competition and PS2 competition during the event. As expected of the cosplayer, most comes in cosplaying characters from Naruto, Bleach and Death Note. There were some exception like there were some girls cosplaying as Éclair from Kiddy Grade, Haruhi from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya respectively.

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 ^^

Welcome to Pia Carrot

Welcome to Pia Carrot…I guess that’s what Sana would say. She’s a character from the game Pia Carrot G.O., one of the many game from the Pia Carrot franchise of dating sim. Actually I didn’t know all that before I got the figure, I only found info on her when I google for it :P. The only reason I got her was she’s super cute ^^.

Sana is sculpted by Youzo Ogawa and manufactured by Kotobukiya. The detail on her is quite good from the meido outfit to the little wings on her back, you can even see a small little fang. For a superb review and photos on her check out super rats blog.

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.

Bought 4 figures this month but only three have arrive Range Murata PSE #05 TT Butterfly, Kotobukiya 1/8 Sana Horiuchi and Kotobukiya 1/10 Lamento – Asato. Suppose to have Mirei-san as well but she won’t be arriving until either end of the month or early next month.

The PSE #05 is only 1/10 scale so she’s quite small, I am not sure how much she cost in yen but the price I bought it for is almost the same price as a 1/6 figure. The Lamento – Asato is also a 1/10 scale figure, but he about the size of a 1/8 though, comes with a grass like base, a sword and scabbard and also a drama CD. I like the transparent box he comes in, can display him without taking him out of the box. Sana is an older figure, she’s being re-release this month so I took the chance to add her to my collection. Besides figures I also manage to get two swords that I can use as props, they are quite cheap but the quality is quite good, made out of metal.

Ignis, a popular character from the game Jinkai Makyou, she’s so popular that 4 company release pvc of her at almost the same time. Of all the 4, Max Factory version is my favourite she is. This beautiful, sexy and stylish lady is sculpted by Masato Kitade. I have never seen how she looks in the game so I can’t be sure how accurate the pvc is but if they ever release an anime version of the game and this is how she looks, I’ll definitely be watching the anime.

She comes with two accessories, her sword and a pair of glasses. Her base itself is quite special, it have a mirror finish with the logo in black in the middle. Due to the mirror finish it also get scratch easily, mine already have quite a number of scratch line when view closely.

This is my second write-up on GSC 1/6 line of FSN figure, the first was Sakura and now it’s Saber turn. As I mention earlier I got them at the same time and at a pretty good price too. Saber is a few cm shorter than Sakura but she’s still quite tall for a 1/6. She’s also sculpted by Shinji Koshinuma, depicting her wearing a brown casual dress and brown sandals, she looks like she’s about to go out on a date or something. Kotobukiya made have a 1/8 version wearing the same dress as well.

She comes together with a simple base that’s screw to her foot for balance, as she’s also balance on one leg.
