Finally… After 1 yr of figure review hiatus, I finally managed to publish a new figure review – or should I say more like a figure photography session with my figures. I’ve been wanting to publish a new figure review for quite some time now but my limited time is really preventing me to do so :( As always, I’ve been super duper busy with work (which is a good thing) and that means less time for my hobby. But yeah, got lots of new figures that I wanted to share and I’ll start with this 1/7th scale figure rendition of Ichijou Manami from the “not for kids manga” Menkui.
Figure was made by the talented people at Orchid Seed offices. As always, the figure is fully cast-offable which means you can literally take off all of her clothing for additional display customization (well, that is if you wanted to display her naked). I would love to show her naked but not this time :P Like what I’ve mentioned earlier, the figure is 1/7 in terms of scale which is good. It’s also a “real” 1/7 figure not unlike some figures from Griffon Enterprises. The quality of the figure is great as well. These includes the overall sculpt and paint job quality. In my experience with Orchid Seed, they do have some strict quality control when it comes to their figures so you always get your money’s worth.
PS: The platform I used in shooting her is my 13” Cintiq HD. Just wanted to see the effect I will get if I have some lights underneath the figure :P Enjoy the rest of the images!
