Hey everyone, here is an Anime figure I've posted on MG. I knew it was a bit more MG than HFM. I want to give you all an opportunity to check it out after all a figure is a figure (right)?

So, what do you think of it? Personally I like the uniform paint scheme and execution. There is a ton of information in the text too, so read away.

Haha, every anime figure I see now reminds me of the annual 'Winter Model Daze' month-long contest we had this month at my local hobby. The first day of entries, somebody dropped off this huge female anime figure (she was over 16" tall KNEELING; sorry dont remember exactly what it was though). They put it in one of the slightly above eye level shelves of the display case so, you know, people could get a good look up at her. She was fairly 'riskay' looking just at first glance, but on closer inspection........I had to go inform the management that anyone shorter than me (5'7"/168cm) was going to see that under her skirt she was, um........knicker-less AND anatomically correct :-) The figure was allowed to remain in the contest, but was removed to the managment office where only the IPMS judges could see her to judge for the contest end last week.

I bet there will be no shortage of Judging volunteers for this contest then...

Hi Sam. Great article ... very interesting reading .. on a subject I know very little about ... and to be honest, have never been interested in.
It looks quite cool though.
My only point would be ... its very hard to see what it is (especially for those who don´t know the anime scene). The blue used in the hair, costume design and the ribbons looks very similar, and then with the rest being white, thats what makes distinguishing the details on the figure hard. I needed to look at all the pics to see ... what was what. Probably its the way it is in the real anime films, but as Ive never seen one, its easy to get lost

Wow youre the first person that knows she's not the only one and there are others avaliable I have found a kit of Mana Tsukuyomi im thinking about maybe getting her but want to get a few of my other figures out the way first, next figure on the bench is Horizion's Posion Ivy along with maybe some of my Pegaso or Andrea figures but at the minute im limited on time as doing a couple of builds for magazines aswell as some campaigns.
Thanks for all the comments about her.

One day I'll delve into the anime figures thing. It's just so darned expensive for the decently done kits! I'd like to find some 'Appleseed' or 'Battle Angel Alita' figures......

Very cool Scott. The painting is quite well done. Thanks for sharing something a little different. I've wanted to do something similar only I've been sculpting my figure. Well not a full figure just a bust. Challenging but fun. If only I could just force myself to get some work done on it.

How was painting the eyes? Seems like that would be rather difficult.
