Now Tama-chan really is a case of the ‘impulsebuyitus’ thats seems to be going around the otaku community like wildfire. I got her at the October Expo for £25. Good price for a 1/6th scale figure. She’s about 19cm tall, a fairly loli character compared to most of my collection.
(I’m sorry for the crap quality of photos, I took these before I worked out the new light set up lol)
A fairly basic outfit. But it’s pulled off well by a great sculpt and great paintwork to boot.
Very cute bow detail, and the straps on the shoes. As I said, its a simple outfit, but done well. Toning on the shoes and on the kimono bow. The colours are fairly plain throught the outfit, but its very cute. The hair is very cute, with some very subtly highlights at the front and lowlights at the back.
The only possible problem I could encounter with this figure is leaning. Her kimono sleeves are pretty heavy, but could be counter balanced by her mini-pigtail ribbons(the hair part is tiny, but the ribbons are long lol). If not that, her legs are very sturdy, so she should be fine. She has a tiny base aswell… which doesn’t help loads with the possible leaning issue lol.
She has a really cute face. VERY big eyes lol. Simple hair, kinda chunky, but very cute. Goes with the rest of the figure. If the hair was all detailed it just wouldn’t fit. The paint is lovely. Theres a cute flower print on the kimono sleeves, not much cloth-draping detail, but again, its a very simplistic figure. Goes for the moe rather than the detail. Love the frills on the apron though. And thigh high socks! :woot: The mould work is good too. The only noticable seam is on the right leg, left side, the leg legs seam is on the inside. It’s still not ghastly at any rate.
And… for the pantsu….
I was shocked and appauled when I saw this…. cute shimapan…. with a horrible suprise at the back….:shudder: The skirt is fairly easy to remove. But I dont wanna remove it anyway….. just did for the photos and when I first got her…
Overall, great figure, cute face, cute pose. Very moe. The workmanship is great too. This is my first Solid Theater figure, and I was not disappointed. Not really sure what she’s from, but its in the Maji Kyudo catagory on HLJ. I’m guessing its an original figure, nothing comes up from google searching it. Theres another figure, Maji-chan which goes with her, their legs can be swapped apparantly. And just today I found out her head comes off lol.
