特Aランク 關羽 雲長!! {special a rank kanu unchou!!}

Posted by meronpan on September 23, 2008

This time I blame Danny.  I picked up the wani books kanu a while back and hadn’t really planned on getting another for a while, but after seeing this kurushima kanu…

Kept growing on me until I finally decided to grab her. For anyone familiar with this figure, prolly goes without saying that there’ll be a bit of skin in this review and may be nsfw ^^;

I originally planned on getting the regular version but couldn’t find her anywhere… then found that the limited (supposedly a run of 600? seemed to be more available than the regular version though ^^;;) version at Hobby Search.

Click! Goodbye money, hello kanu ^_^

Regular version available at beNippon at the moment!

As you can see above, the packing is a lot different than usual PVC figures. No clear plastic or anything cuz kanu’s packaged quite differently…

Getting her out of the packaging, I was prepared to do some assembly thanks to Danny’s article but was still a little put back being the clutz I am (we’ll talk about Yoko’s gun another day orz).

Luckily, a little glue and patience later…

The skin really is a pretty lightly colored, honestly I wouldn’t mind if it was a couple shades darker.

I think it was the black pantsu that sold me on this version ^^;

Base is nice and solid.

I was intrigued with Kanu before having read or seen any ikkitousen… long hair, weapon wielding, healthy eyes… ^_^;

This is also my first cold cast figure… definitely very solid feeling.

Love long hair, kanu’s no exception ^_^

kanu no oshiri.

kanu’s trusty dragon crescent blade.

Kind of bothered me that her other foot doesn’t touch the base… not sure how that happened… Being cold cast, it doesn’t seem like her leg could possibly bend that far out of shape…

Isn’t really that noticeable (to me ^^;) though so whatever.

It’s kind of strange taking all these shots and not getting her face ‘cuz she’s looking up ^^;

Underboob shot inspired by Henry’s news item ^^;

nanoha wants a new friend

Saber goes in for another oshiri slice

I’ll have to give wani books kanu her own review soon…

I had forgotten how tall she was…

Ever figure should be measured in zamber form bardiches.

The nendoroid brigade is back at it. I was pleased to discover nagato can rest on the base ^_^

haruhi has recruited new talent for her pantsu pastime.

Woo, and that concludes another review. Been awhile since I finished the last one.

As mentioned elsewhere I’m slowly unboxing and refilling my detolf.

Would it be weird to ask for furniture for Christmas? ^^;; I still gotta bust out the shuraki girls and fate-chan! orz

    wow pretty! and really really big!! lol i love her socks hehe >_<

  2. I have stopped buying cold cast figurine after I got Ryomou Shimei because her skin color doesn’t look good and breaks easily. I broke mine twice actually.

  3. sonic_ver2 said

    What’s a cold cast figure anyway? I still don’t know much about figure material or something like that.

    Anyway, i’m not a fan of ikkitousen but she really has a nice body added with ripped off clothes which equals total sexiness XD.

    Oh yeah, is it because of your camera flash or her skin seems too glossy?

    Im glad to see that youve got your next ikki Tousen figure^^
    Kanu seems to be the same for you as Ryomou for me.

    Even tough i dont really like Kanu (as a character) I end up buying all three girls anyway ^_^

    WaniBooks Ikki figures are really hughe.Nothings bigger in my detolf.

    The only thing bothering me about this Kanu is the pale skin.Come on Kanu has got a tan!Didnt they take a look at her?

    @nomad i didn’t realize it but i practically have a whole shelf of 1/6 now, such space hogs! ^^;

    @divine fang yeah, i’m not sure i’ll be going for another cold cast anytime soon either. i’m definitely afraid of breaking her and the premium you pay is quite prohibitive. still, that ryomou looks pretty nice to me ^_^

    @sonic_ver2 mmm i believe the term cold cast refers to the way the plastic is molded? there was a post @ riuva that gives a brief overview – http://www.riuva.com/?p=301

    Yeah, the glossy look is from the flash. Doesn’t look glossy at all in person.

    @blowfish i’m sad the other girls don’t get as much love as kanu. i’m still looking for sonsaku figure…

    I’m also a little puzzled why the skin tone is on the light side. Quite off from the source…

    nice one , she’s nice :) (maybe too sexy you perv ! :p)

    but i prefer your bigger one , want to see more of this one :o

    and glad to see your detolf alive again !

  7. meronpan said

    @james not sure why your comments ended up in the spam filter -_-

    definitely the most daring of my figures, although i suppose she loses to cast-off wani books kanu if you take her shirt off ^^; hopefully i’ll get more pics of wanibooks kanu up soon, in the meantime i guess you can reread blowfish’s review? ^^;

  8. optic said

    Love the hair. Yeah, with a damaged version pantsu, it can sell anyone. xD

    I’m starting to have a fetish for spears. I don’t why but maybe I’ve been reading too much reviews on figures who have spears. ^^

  9. meronpan said

    @optic senhime on your list? ^_^ she’s the only other spear wielder that comes to mind atm

  10. James said

    @ meronpan : i reinstalled my windows and now all my comments are going in the spam filter , i try to post at M12 kun blog but it’s the same … and he doesn’t look in his spam filter at all :'(

  11. meronpan said

    @james weird… well, it looks like you’ve gotten out of my spam bin at least ^^;

  12. Persocom said

    I’d ask for furniture for xmas too. That Kanu figure looks better than the version danny had, I like the colors on this one much more, black pantsu/grey shirt=win.

  13. Eetaku said

    WOO! Underboob shot! And holy crap that’s an expensive figure! I do agree the skin looks light, do you think that’s because of the flash?

  14. meronpan said

    @persocom indeed, black pantsu ftw ^_^ still not sure how I feel about the gray top, maybe i should ‘shop one of my photos to see how she’d look with other colors…

    @eetaku yeah, she burned quite a hole in my wallet ^^;; actually the light tones are pretty accurate to close to her actual appearance.

  15. phossil said

    This figure really has captured my attention. Great detail and vivid colors.

    Funny the pics with Nanoha and Saber. ^_^

  16. meronpan said

    @phossil thanks ^_^ she’s definitely very nice, so if you can afford the premium, grab her while you can!
