高町なのは 水着Ver. ~ Takamachi Nanoha Mizugi Version

Posted by meronpan on June 10, 2009

とうとう出来ました! 今日のレビューは高町なのは、水着バージョンです。  Finally, it’s finished!  Today’s review is the mizugi version of good ‘ol takamachi nanoha. このレビューは久しぶりに日本語で書いて見ました。 長い間練習してないせいで何かおかしい事たくさん書いちゃったんだろう。 すみません! m(_ _)m

nanohamizugi06

Good Smile Companyからの無駄にでかい1/4スケールなのは! まぁ、GSCだけどオフィシャルページでは「企画・制作協力」はGiftと書いてあります。 思ったよりずっとよくて水着フェイトちゃん期待してます。 A massive 1/4 release by Good Smile Company, though it does mention Gift for “Planning / Production Assistance” on the main site.  Turned out much better than I anticipated and now I really can’t wait for Fate ^^

nanohamizugi07

涼子ほど凄くないけど1/4スケールだからあんまり期待してなくて満足。 Didn’t impress me as much as ryouko but perhaps it was because I wasn’t expecting much out of a 1/4 release that allowed her to exceed my expectations.

nanohamizugi08

全高38cmって 高っ!38cm tall, she’s a beast!

nanohamizugi09

水着…小さ過ぎない? And perhaps a little too big for her swimsuit? :P

nanohamizugi10

おっぱい~ oppai~

nanohamizugi11

なのははこんなに胸大きいんだっけ? ロリなのは好きファンに残念 ^^; Didn’t remember nanoha being so busty ^^;  Sorry loli nanoha fans, you’re out of luck ^^;;

nanohamizugi13

水着の糸(糸って言うんでしょうか ^^;)どうしてか分かんないけど割りと好き。 でも下の写真にはあんなに綺麗じゃないかな All strings on her suit were a nice touch.  Though perhaps not as impressive at this zoom ^^;

nanohamizugi16

Nice pose.

nanohamizugi17

ボイン~ boin~

nanohamizugi18

その目誰の目? Whose eyes are those?

nanohamizugi19

大きいから髪の小さいディテールが出来そうけどそうならないね、普通。 You would think with the increased scale they could carve out very fine details in the hair but alas that never seems the be the case.

nanohamizugi12

酷いと言わないけど髪は何か普通です。 Not horrible, but I’m just always looking for it ‘cuz it’s often my favorite aspect when done well.

nanohamizugi15

可愛い水着だね kawaii mizugi ^^

nanohamizugi20

ビーチでこんな水着見た事ありません。 他の探さなきゃな Never seem to see anything like this at the beach… must be going to the wrong ones :P

nanohamizugi22

お尻に注目! ^^; A closer look at her oshiri~

nanohamizugi14

nanohamizugi21

ローアングルでこのレビューは完全! Low angle for completeness

nanohamizugi23

nanohamizugi24

スリッパ可愛い She even has interesting footwear ^^

nanohamizugi25

Only one foot has peg holes.

nanohamizugi26

この目が好き Love her eyes

nanohamizugi28

ツン~ tsun~

nanohamizugi27

このレビューでは使ってないけどダボがあるんです。Did the review without her support bar, but note that she has one.

nanohamizugi34

そのダボは足の後ろにあるから大分影の薄いパーツです。 必要なかったら使わないけどフィギュアにダメージが心配で、結局使います。 Luckily the metal bar is behind one of her legs so it’s pretty inconspicuous.  The clamp on her leg is… well, less so but hey, better than having a leaning figure I suppose.

nanohamizugi29

ベースは相変わらずつまんないけどそれは期待してなかった。 Giftのフィギュアでよく使うミラーベースはよかったのに。 Really wish they did something more exciting with the base.  Just boring white.  orz

nanohamizugi30

さて、サイズ比較! 最初に、水着フィギュア! Now for some size comparisons… first, the mizugi comparison ^^

nanohamizugi31

1/6 KOS-MOS、 1/7 すず…これで僕の水着フィギュア全体。 1/6 KOS-MOS, 1/7 suzu… I believe this is also my complete mizugi figure collection.

nanohamizugi32

1/8 ミクと1/4涼子追加。 フィグマなのはも追加。 小さいね ^^; Added in 1/8 miku & 1/4 ryouko… and figma nanoha ^^;  She’s so tiny ^^;

nanohamizugi33

そして最後にシグナムとはやて。 And we’ll wrap it up with signum & hayate ^^

言うまでもなくなのははやっぱりでかい。 そのでかさで凄く目立つフィギュアです。 It hardly needs to be mentioned, but nanoha is massive.  If you’re looking for an attention grabber for you collection, she’ll fit the bill with her size alone.  Might warrant display apart from your main collection to not stick out so much :P

GSCのサイトによるとフェイトちゃんの出番は来てるようです。 The GSC listing also mentions quite explicitly that a matching Fate is in the works -

出ないと悲しいよ! 早くフェイトを! They better make good on that promise!  Can’t wait to have the pair of them ^^

原作のなのはの表情はましだと思います。 それと髪のせいでこのなのはは絶対買わなきゃってフィギュアじゃない。 それでもなのはファンとして、エピックのフィギュアのファンとして、最近水着フィギュア好きになったファンとして、僕は後悔してません!Wish they had stuck closer to her expression in the source pic, which I like a lot better.  That and detailing on the hair that failed to impress keeps this from being a must buy in my book.  That said, as a nanoha fan, a fan of epic figures, and a budding mizugi figure fan, no regrets!  She’s awesome ^^

    very lovely back view :3

    guess my only problem is the face, like u said, I think it’s plain & quite dead compared to the source pic, might consider getting fate! XD

  2. T.I.P. said

    Nice figure. I see that you’ve started to cater to the Japanese audience as well. ^^

    I’m not sure if I’m getting Nanoha, but Fate will be a must get for me. Looking at the photos, I might buy her if she goes on a sale, *wink* HLJ *wink* but I doubt that’ll happen since she’s so popular.

    I have the towering Yuki bunny at 42cm sitting on my desk, so Nanoha (or Fate) won’t look out of place at my place. Might look good around Gift’s 1/5 Yoko too.

    The hair can do with more detail, but then there’s usually not much detail in anime characters so the figure is anime accurate(?), something that people seem to value a lot in their figures. The hair doesn’t look too bad anyways.

    • meronpan said

      figured that the increase in traffic from foobarbaz was a good excuse to get some practice in ^^; i guess the only problem is that i have no one to proofread what i wrote ^^; though already i know my politeness level is all over the map hence making the style a little jarring i think… ah well.

      hmm yeah so yuki’s taller, isn’t she ^^; would make a nice pair

      yeah hair’s definitely not bad guess i was just trying to convey that i think there’s room to kick up the level of detail (and still remain faithful to character design)

  3. Leonia said

    Nice presentation of this lovely figure. I am waiting for the Fate version and then, I would purchase maybe this one (I don’t like Nanoha :P)

    • meronpan said

      yeah nanoha’s not my fav either but she gets on my buy lists with her status as the main character more or less. i have high hopes for the pair ^^

  4. She’s huge >_< Not very detailed for a 1/4 figure but since she's wearing so little, there's not much to detail ^^; Her body seems a bit plain but I suppose it is accurately modeled after the anime.

    A good catch for Nanoha fans though ^^

    • meronpan said

      yeah i think that’s why i’m so fixated on the hair… pretty much the only thing left to add detail to ^^;

      definitely a solid purchase for nanoha mania ^^

  5. ELTboy said

    I loved this figure. Nanoha turned out very, very nice and her size is really imposing. I wished I had the storage capacity for a 1/4 figure. She’s too tall to fit anywhere for me. Well, even though I am not going to buy Fate, I do hope to see the her figure soon too. ^^

    • meronpan said

      i don’t have any space either ^^;;; no idea where all my fate-chans are going to go… alter’s version will be a huuuuge space hog and another 1/4 is just… ^^;;

  6. super rats said

    Is this the unofficial start of summer, Nanoha in a swimsuit?

    • meronpan said

      that’s official enough for me :P strangely cool here in california at the moment thou (not that i’m complaining… hate the heat + fear for leaning ^^;)

  7. gordon said

    i’ll buy her if only she’s 1/8 scale. wait, did i said the same thing over at james’ blog? (‘~’)

  8. Q said

    Haven’t practised Japanese for a while so you dished it out here? ^^;

    Looking back, it’s unusual to have a bikini figure of such size due to the fact that there usually aren’t much detail on them. However, they have done the colours and details so the price makes it up.

    • meronpan said

      but of course, what better way to cater to my japanese readers? ^^

      actually now that i think about it it makes perfect sense to do a bikini for 1/4… so much less to worry about for the sculpting ^^;; probably a lot cheaper to produce that a fancy outfit

  9. Magna said

    I’m not a fan of Nanoha, but, as you said, a more detailed hair would rise the “must buy” factor a lot. Anyway, congratulations for getting her! ^^

  10. sonic_ver2 said

    1/4 scale is just too big, but i really like to see those boobs. Looks so soft and delicious XD.

    Yeah… nice seeing her sexy boobs and butt. Can’t get tired watching them.

  11. rotaku said

    HUGE! She looks delicious… I want her on my desk… shame… the price… too much

  12. Shiddo said

    Your shots make her look bit yellowish ^^
    Other than that nice photos ^^ So Fate is next ^^
    (wonder, if GSC were to release Hayate, Signum etc… would you get them as well? ^^;)

    • meronpan said

      i swear it’s like an optical illusion ^^;;; on some monitors she looks yellow or even on the same monitor if i look at the images long enough it starts looking normal again -_- i need some sort of reference system to get the color right ^^; i guess that’s the trouble with skin tones. weird colored skin stands out immediately but for clothes it’s just… different colored clothes

      gah, if they did them all… well, i was able to resist all the bunnies ^^; but hayate and signum would be sure buys ^^;

      • Shiddo said

        -10 hue in PS makes her normal for me. For example post on Re-Hikari’s blog, has her yellowish as well ^^ I thought it might be lame selection of color by painters. But on foo-bar-baz her colors look normal… Lets say shes “taned” ^^;

  13. Rin said

    I WANT!!!!!
    I’m still waiting on my Nanoha…
    Really nice shoot as well!!!
    Love the photos!!!
    I wonder would they release a Fate version…I would love to get my hands on that!!!

  14. Re-Hikari said

    And here I thought my Hayate figure was big >_>; Now that you actually put them in the same pic together… ^^;;

    Oh well, being a girl myself, I’m still undecided whether I should get the figure or not XD I don’t think I’ll like my parents’ reaction to it XP

    • meronpan said

      ahhh was confused when i clicked through to your blog… saw the nanoha review and thought, oh, so she got it! but the date was before your comment here… finally noticed you have multiple authors at your site ^^;;

      is it the price your parents’ won’t like or the lack of clothing? ^^;

    • Shiddo said

      Father could like it ^^;

  15. optic said

    When I saw the low angle completeness shots, the first thing that snap in my mind is “holy smack, Queen Kong Nanoha. LOL
    I reckon her hair can use a bit more work, detailed wise but overall, she’s worth having except the size is the biggest drawback from me. I wish she came in a alternative lower scale (1/8) to cater the two-piece lovers out there. (like me xD)

    • meronpan said

      heheh she is a giant ^^;

      definitely need to have a flexible display plan to fit her in… wonder if i would’ve gotten her at a smaller scale though. part of the reason was ‘cuz 1/4 scale was epic ^^; well i guess to have a nanoha fate pair i guess i would’ve bought her regardless of scale ^^;

  16. Tier said

    Not to sound like too much of a pervert (although I’d readily and enthusiastically admit to it if accused), but GSC did a really nice job sculpting her backside. I like how they did her face too, she looks all exuberant and cheerful rather than just mildly happy.

    I don’t think I ever noticed the “Possibly related posts” section before but I went to those links to try and figure out how they were being generated, and I couldn’t figure it out. I wonder if the folks at FAMEbaby know they are being linked from a post reviewing a Japanese anime figure?

    • meronpan said

      hahah, nothing but agreement here. i guess i should’ve said in my review… i like her face… but i woulda loved it if they stuck to the source pic ^^

      they need more emphasis on the “possibly” part of possibly related posts ^^;;

  17. Persocom said

    She does look nice, but for a figure of that size I think mizugi is a little too simple for my tastes. I still don’t own a single figure of the type though, which is quite odd. I’d rather see a 1/4 scale in her regular outfit of something that has more detail. Not that this is a bad figure though, but she looks damn tall XD Also taking her to a real beach would be a task.

    • meronpan said

      no mizugi figures yet? try one out, maybe they’ll grow on ya ^^

      unfortunately when it comes to detailed 1/4 figures… i think that’s when you end up with things like volks’ kanu release ^^; 44,100 yen… for the unpainted gk i believe? ^^;;;

  18. Blowfish said

    Okay here are several factors that come into play that dont make this figure interesting for me:

    1. Shes from the Nanoha series

    Sorry,but I dont like the franchise

    2.Swimsuit

    A swimsuit might look good in smaller scales but the bigger they get the tougher its to achieve a nice shading/tan job

    Shes still a nice job but definately nothing for me.Im particulary happy that Gift is keeping up the quality releases.

    Oh and on a sidenote.Ive noticed in your mahjong post that you bought the Gintama Manga.Try the Anime instead its superior over the Manga and features an all star seiyuu cast ^^
    3. The pose

    May be a perfect in canon pose for Nanoha but its rather plain for my tastes

    • meronpan said

      yeah, wasn’t expecting to convert you with this one ^^;; definitely for fans or else you’re just staring at an uninteresting, expensive figure ^^;;

      i was trying to watch gintama but haven’t been able to acquire it yet. orz the manga was readily available at kinokuniya though :P regardless, i always like to try at least the 1st volume, especially if it’s the source material. no offense meant, i just like making the call myself. ^^; but anyhow, yes, i would love to watch it, just haven’t been able to!

      • Blowfish said

        No offense taken!
        I like to take a look at the source material aswell but wasnt too impressed with its manga counterpart.Just thought that it might save you some bucks.But who am I kidding?Im talking to a guy who ows an expensive 1/4 figure.Like he cares about money ^_^

  19. Smithy said

    Even though I love the design I didn’t get her due to the huge size and ditto price tag but if they are making a Fate one as well…

  20. I’m impressed with the additional Japanese there. I’ve seen a huge chunk of Japanese readers showing up a couple of weeks ago, but my Japanese isn’t competent enough to do my posts in ^^;

    I wanted to get 1/4 Yuki back then, but I heard it doesn’t even fit in the detolf! So I doubt this one will fit either XD I’m not a big Nanoha fan thankfully so my wallet thanks me for not getting this one, lol.

    • meronpan said

      i’ve been getting approximately 10-15% of my views from japanese folk yet i think i’ve yet to see a single comment from them ^^; (well, does aaron or punynari count? ^^;) thought that the japanese translation might encourage some interaction but guess danny’s right… they’re a quiet lot ^^;

      hmmm guess i could try when i get home to see if she fits… nanoha is a bit shorter since she doesn’t have bunny ears :P

      i could’ve saved so much money if i wasn’t a nanoha fan… … orz ^^;

  21. She seems so..squishy in some places even though I know she’s made plastic. I wish to poke her xD

    Hope your dual language posts will encourage some of those lurkers to speak up. ^^ Though I can understand how language barriers can make someone reluctant. I’m super-duper quiet at pixiv :P

    • meronpan said

      yeh, they didn’t equip her with the squishy oppai ^^;

      i guess i also have similar tendencies for foreign language communities… have never commented on any of the japanese blogs i read ^^;
