Max Factory Ayu Tsukimiya 1/8th Figure

January 30, 2009
I chose colder lighting because I thought it fit well with Kanon, set in Winter n all.

Today I got round to taking some half-decent pics of my new Ayu Tsukimiya. She is gorgeous. Stunningly well made, great accesories, the wings, I love the wings. Pearlescent clear pink….look so fantastic.

SLR Figure Photography

January 26, 2009

I got my photos back from the shop! The actual prints look awesome, but the high res look a bit grainy…. definately using 100 ISO film next time…. which might be later this week. On some of them I did a bit of photoshopping, just adjusting the colour, I don’t know how to get rid of grainyness lol. And it seems like the lower aperture(ones with out of focus background)have less grain than those with a higher aperture.

I again, had to take pics of Fumie, because I love her.

This was taken using low aperture, soft focus background.

Max Factory Makoto Sawatari 1/8th Figure – Finally GET!

January 6, 2009

On monday, as you may have read, I finally recieved a figure I’d been wanting for, well… a fair while now… Makoto Sawatari, a character from Kanon, a game from Key turned into an anime series twice, once in 2002 and once in 2006. The latter of which is the best, in terms or animation and truth to the original game story. She cost more than any other figures have done in the past, BUT she’s worth every penny. I don’t look at her and think ‘OMG THE PRICE’, I just think ‘Auuuuuuuuuuu’. I’m just so glad glad I caved and ignored the price tag and got her. It’s opened me up to the option of spending more on a figure I really-really want, not on impulse buys though.

A shot of the lovely Makoto herself. The flow is magnificent.

Max Factory Makoto Sawatari – To get or not to get, that, is the question…

December 21, 2008

I have… finally found a place where Makoto is in stock…. only problem is, she’s about £58. And the most I’ve spent on any figure is £40… I know I’ll have to step up the price bracket sometime… specially with the recession…. but £58 for a 1/8th scale, fairly small figure. About 17.5cm apparantly, I know she’s bending over though lol, she’s taller than Ayu, and Ayu(also available on this site) costs more… I want her too….:sob: I’m so glad I’ll have christmas money soon…. will solve many figure issues….

What I want to know is, would you (or did you pay more or less than) £58, or £88 dollars roundabouts, for this figure? I know she’s pretty hard to get, and she’s gorgeous AND my favourite Kanon character, AND its Max Factory, so quality is assured, and on all the reviews I’ve seen, she’s just lovely… but is £58 more than its worth? Or have some of you paid more for similar sized figures?

Reviews for her available on Mukyaa, HappySoda and Howagirlfigures.
