After a lot of disasters, I finally finished her today! I liked her quite a bit when I bought her, mostly because of her dynamic pose and cool costume. However the kit was not great to work with having many fit problems, and the head turning back pose makes the kit less interesting. So finishing… Continue reading Christie monteiro from tekken
After all the paint peeling and agonizing color choices, sakura hime is finally done. I’m happy that she’s finally achieved completion after such a prolonged negligence… But I think after so many years my tools and experience has increased enough to do her justice. Now moving on!
Because of the nice images I got from my figure kits lately, Jason Voorhess and Sakuya, I’ve been reinvigorated with figures and starting to build (and buy) more of them. It’s a shame I suspended them for so long, how much I loved painting skintones! On the restart I pulled another one of the kits… Continue reading WIP: Sakurahime from Plawres Sanshiro
Shunya-san did a lot of the Marvel reimaging, but taking on the classic horror character is a bold move! The Jason Voorhees really stood out as a cool design. The original had a lot of blood on the figure as part of its slasher motif, but I didn’t want blood on my hands so to… Continue reading Jason Voorhees Bishoujo 1/7 Kotobukiya
I adore the Tony line of figures. The art itself was great, but the figures are mostly well-sculpted with nice outfits and soft poses. Costume are of fantasy elements but with added anime cuteness. I’m not going to pretend I know what Shining Ark the game is about or who Sakuya is, except she… Continue reading Shining Ark – Angel of Light Sakuya Mode: Seraphim 1/6
Last night I got the last touches of the bishoujo Jason voorhees from kotobukiya done. Originally I wanted her to have the left arm positioned to hold the machete upright, with its tip going into a rock. Then I figured it can go into a skull which would be cooler and more thematic. But then… Continue reading Jason voorhees bishoujo finished
This is one of the earliest garage kit I bought. Back then the casting technique was not that great and the pieces don’t fit as well. The 90’s anime characters have these gigantic eyes that are scary. The kit came from one of Satoshi Urushihara’s game character illustrations. The sculptor did a pretty good job of… Continue reading Sherry – Langrisser 2 – 1/6 resin figure
I built a modified version of this kit back in 2006 (!!!) Boy am I getting old. The original kit was excellent as well so I built yet another one. Once again the dark iron Mr. Metal color is the highlight of the kit, making a cool rendition of this fantastic design by Tsukasa Bullet.
I can’t remember last I’ve done any figures?! There is a certain appeal about Yamashita’s many renditions of the classic and new heroines. Even though I wasn’t a big fan of the Ghostbusters franchise I still like how the various bits are assembled in this piece.
Another kit that took more than 10 years in the making… haha. Steam Detectives wasn’t a popular manga, but out of the illustrations came the two pro/antagonist assitant nurses in lingerie, yay. I love the original kits because they’re so unique, but I’ve always felt they don’t look good as individual kits, nor do they… Continue reading Steam Detectives Ling-ling and Ran-ran 1/8
