Comments Bandai Spirits Gambier Bay "Christmas Mode"

  • Maakie7 months ago#75841243Oh~ I didn't expect you to pick up a Kantai Collection figure! But as she has some Sonico/Pochaco vibes going on I can understand your choice (and you got a 2nd figure of her right away)! :) Maybe you'll take the plunge to one of the beautiful Abyssal ladies one day as well? ;)
    The only things I found bothersome are the different finishes on the hair and the weird coloring on the breasts (thought it were tanlines at first...), the rest of her is all really decent for a prize figure.
    About your 'skimpy outfit in winter' collection, as she can be more cast off, have you thought about getting ITEM #676037 ?


    I have a weird relationship with Kan Colle, as the character designs (at least some of them) appeal to me more than anything else, and that was why this figure got my attention.

    The hair finish is certainly weird. Sometimes subtle differences in finish can get magnified by extremely bright lighting, but I've got this figure sitting right above my desk, and the different finishes of the hair can be seen under normal ambient lighting. Weird...

    ITEM #676037 is on my wishlist. That figure was released at a bad time when there was a bunch of other higher-priority items, so it will have to wait :). ITEM #549561 also has a similar theme, but it lacks any sort of remotely SFW display option.

    CaptainZ11 months ago#68457736I'm a sucker for Christmas bikini's will have to look into her

    You are a man of taste. Your comment prompted me to do an MFC search for christmas+bikini. To my surprise, the only items to appear were this one,

    ITEM #98971
    ITEM #166982
    ITEM #529209,
    ITEM #529214, and the color variants of the Sonico and Valkyria Chronicles figures. I'm certain there are others, but perhaps they are incompletely tagged.

    ZoidsFanatic211 months ago#68455289Onto the figure itself, she looks really nice. I don’t think I told you think before but I love the pictures you take. Really nicely done and detailed.

    Well, thank you!

    ZoidsFanatic211 months ago#68455289I’m not a KC fan, but I’ll admit Bay does look adorable enough I might buy the Nendoroid... if it’s on sale. And it’s a Tuesday. And I have sleep deprivation. And I’m bored. We’ll just put her down as a maybe then.
    Anyhow, really fantastic review as always!


    Well, I bought this ITEM #842596 Gambier Bay the other day, although it wasn't a Tuesday, and she wasn't on sale, well kind of, and I was sort of sleep deprived when I bought her :).

    galablue11 months ago#68453237I like the sculpt of her breasts in the bikini. They seem to be just the right size. Thanks for the fun and informative review!

    "Fun" is actually a nice simple way to describe this figure. She's cute, she looks happy, and the figure is a little bit fanservicey without being lewd in any way.

    Actually, I will add the character is quite popular in the KC fandom. I think the main problem is she was released during the 2017 Fall event which was... a bit infamous from what I recall. Not to mention Azur Lane began growing in popularity around the same time. This is just my theory on her though, not an expert.
