B.M.F. Nergal ND-001 Nadesico

May 21, 2015 By: Nopy Category: Figures

Its been a long time since I’ve done a figure review so today I bring you a figure I’ve been eyeing for a year, the Space Battleship Nadesico from my favourite anime, Martian Successor Nadesico. For those who haven’t heard of the anime before, it’s a popular sci-fi/romance/comedy from the mid-90’s. In the midst of a losing war between Earthlings and Jovians, Nergal Heavy Industries develops the ND-001 “Nadesico”, the first Nadesico-class battleship, in order to fight the Jovians and recover company assets from Mars. The Nadesico carries a team of Aestivalis (giant robot mechs) and is equipped with a gravity blast cannon.

Nearly 20 years after Martian Successor Nadesico first aired, Artspirits added the Nadesico battleship to its B.M.F (Battleship Mech Fun) line of figures. The figure was released in February 2015 at a MSRP of 12,800 yen. Unlike most gunpla, this is a pre-painted and pre-assembled figure. Although it is non-scale, at 23cm long, I estimate it’s about 1/1300.

After being delayed for a bit, Good Smile Company’s Princess of the Crystal figure was finally released in June 2013. The Princess of the Crystal comes from the anime Mawaru Penguindrum, probably best known for leaving a lot of people scratching their heads. The figure is 1/8 scale, making it stand at about 19cm tall. It was sculpted by Iwanaga Sakurako and retails for 9800 yen.

Kyouko Sakura is the last character from Puella Magi Madoka Magica to be given the figure treatment by Good Smile Company. This 1/8 scale figure of her was sculpted by Ken Kawanishi and was released in September of 2012 at a MSRP of 7800 yen. She is posed such that it looks like she has just jumped down from a ledge while holding a partially eaten taiyaki.

Sena Kashiwazaki by Kotobukiya

sena01

Sena Kashiwazaki is one of the main characters from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai. She’s smart, athletic, pretty, popular, and has no friends, which prompts her into joining the neighbours club. Kotobukiya released this 1/8 scale figure of her in August 2012 for a price of 6800 yen. There are a number of figures out there of Sena, but what made me decide to get this one was the butterfly that rests on her knee.

Sayaka Miki is a character from the series Puella Magi Madoka Magica. This 1/8 scale figure of her from Good Smile Company was sculpted by Ken Kawanishi and was released in July 2012 at a MSRP of 7800 yen. I’m not a big fan of Sayaka, but I had to get this figure to complete my Puella Magi set.

Totooria Helmold by Phat Company

June 28, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Figures

On June 6, 2012 Phat Company released a 1/8 scale Totooria Helmold figure from the game Atelier Totori. If any of you like cute things and have never heard of Atelier Totori, then shame on you. Totooria Helmold (a.k.a. Totori) is the main character in the game. She comes from a small fishing village and learned alchemy from the “great” Rorona Frixell. Her mother was a famous adventurer that went missing a long time ago, and now that Totori is old enough, she decides to become an adventurer too and hopefully find out what happened to her mother.

Homura Akemi by GSC

May 31, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Figures

Figure reviews have been lacking on my blog recently, and I think it’s about time to get cranking on this category once again. This review will cover Good Smile Company’s 1/8 scale Homura Akemi from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. The figure was sculpted by Ken Yokata and was released on March 21, 2012 for a MSRP of 7800円. I decided to try out a pure black background this time to see how pics would turn out; let me know what you think. Now on to the review.

Madoka Kaname by GSC

March 04, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Figures

This 1/8 scale Madoka Kaname (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) figure was released by Good Smile Company back in January. I don’t think Madoka needs any introductions, but if this posts survives for 10 years and someone then is reading this, Madoka is a 14-year-old girl who becomes a magical girl in order to protect the world from beings called witches. Madoka was sculpted by Kohata Takahiro, stands about 19 cm tall, and retails for 7800 Yen.

Ruri Hoshino Nendoroid Petit by GSC

February 23, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Figures

I don’t normally review nendoroid petits since there really isn’t much about them to review, but since this is Ruri we’re talking about, I’m making an exception. Ruri Hoshino is the youngest member of the space battleship Nadesico from the anime Martian Successor Nadesico. She is the only survivor from a genetic engineering experiment to create individuals that are highly effective at interfacing with machines. She was purchased by Nergal Heavy Industries to work with the Nadesico’s supercomputer, Omoikane, to run all of the Nadesico’s systems.
