Kaguya & Kaori!!
Posted by meronpan on February 25, 2009
She’s finally here! Kaguya! Preview mode engaged!
My first Volks figure! If you’re not familiar with them, they’re notorious for not being available through most online stores for those outside Japan (which I find weird, ‘cuz they have a whole english site for their dollfie stuff??). To get around that problem I ordered her through good ‘ol Tokyo Hunter.
Decided to just take the pics against my manga shelves for old times’ sake. Learning a bit more about focal length and background blur as I prepare to make a DSLR plunge… my latest revelation… backing up and then zooming in on a subject rather than moving the camera closer will greatly increase background blur. I think I might’ve been told about that in the past but didn’t quite wrap my head around it at the time ^^;; Alas, though I was getting the background blur I wanted my lighting was still killing me… too hard and shots are overexposed orz.
Seems that the game Kaguya’s from (無限のフロンティア スーパーロボット大戦OGサーガ, Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier) is getting ported, so those averse to importing will get a chance to experience the oppai insanity.
Read at tsukiboard that she was cast-off and to my surprise, yes, she is!
Her skin’s kind of pale, the oppai paint work wasn’t that great, and there’s a hole from where her outfit attaches so it’s not very well done… well, I’ll have full coverage of that in my full review later ^^; Yokopai will have to do for now :P
Moving on, Kaorin (hmm doesn’t seem to be the type that would let anyone call her that ^^;;) arrived right before I left for Tokyo… but was so busy preparing I didn’t even have time for a preview.
ELTboy has his review up, mine is still a bit aways away ^^;; Want to cover KOS-MOS, Teana, and Kaguya first ^^;
As far as my Kotobukiya expectations go, she falls on the slightly better than average side of things. Still has a way to go before I’ll consider them as top tier material.
Kaorin’s character design definitely swayed me into a purchase, but no regrets ^^
That’s all for today, kitaishite ne~
