MaakieMaakie1 month ago
Hello MFC! And welcome to another blog in my collection series! These blogs cover figures from my collection that have been in storage for a long time due to my emigration. I also use this as an opportunity to practice with my new camera and also appreciate the items I have been owning for a longer time!

The figures we are going to look at today:

- Vocaloid - Calne Ca - Hdge - Nurse Cos ver. (Union Creative International Ltd) ITEM #162402
- Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ - Kuubo Wo-kyuu (FuRyu) ITEM #246373
- Gekijouban Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions - Lemon Magician Girl - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #358241
- PC Shoujo - Shoujo Ripple - 1/8 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #5600

Vocaloid - Calne Ca - Hdge - Nurse Cos ver. (Union Creative International Ltd) ITEM #162402

A very unique figure which I also reviewed when I originally got her in 2014 BLOG #18523 . As she was also my cosplay reference when I made my costume of her BLOG #42827 the figure got some damages and went through some repairs.

The figure definitely has some quality issues (and Union Creative is not really known in general for their quality), but the unique design makes up for it in my opinion.

To make some parts stand out more (such as the transparent pieces in her mouth) I also went for a quick outdoor photo shoot:

I love the non-existing jaw and how a lot of the non-human parts could be replicated in the figure.

Try to not be too nitpicky at the small details, and she is an impressive piece with the size and overall design.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666691.jpeg

I always loved her eye decals too.

Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ - Kuubo Wo-kyuu (FuRyu) ITEM #246373

There are quite a lot of cool prize figures out there from the Abyssals of Kantai Collection, this Kuubo Wo-kyuu included. I earlier gave this figure a photoshoot blog BLOG #42081 as well.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666699.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666701.jpeg

Something very cool and directly noticeable is the leathery texture on a lot of places on the figure.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666703.jpeg

But let's not forget the smaller details as well. I love her footwear and there is quite some nice shading on it for a prize figure.

The base is a dust magnet though, I cleaned it just before the photo shoot and quite some of the white fluff from my photo booth got stuck on it.

The white marks you see on her legs are a painting error which were already there when I unboxed the figure for the first time. I should try to fix it, but I keep on forgetting about it as it doesn't stand out much when the figure is normally displayed.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666704.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666706.jpeg

It is a very impressive character design that works well even on a prize figure.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666708.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666711.jpeg

There are lots of details to admire, such as the mechanical parts underneath her 'hat' and her flowing hair.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666713.jpeg

Overall I would recommend this figure if you like her design!

Gekijouban Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions - Lemon Magician Girl - 1/7 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #358241

A very cute and happy-go-lucky girl is this Lemon Magician! The matching Apple Magician I covered in Maakie's Collection #25 BLOG #48177 .

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666717.jpeg

I love the cute posing and color palette!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666718.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666719.jpeg

The shading in uh...this area, is great too! I love the golden borders as well.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666721.jpeg

The design of the wings is pretty neat too!

PC Shoujo - Shoujo Ripple - 1/8 (Kotobukiya) ITEM #5600

Shoujo Ripple is a bit of a niche figure reviewed by both me BLOG #42419 and victorviper BLOG #17327 2 years ago. The character design is a personification of the Ripple mini computer.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666722.jpeg

Very cute and with very unique colors!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666724.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666725.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666726.jpeg

There are lots of cute details in the design.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/03/21/2666728.jpeg

I would recommend this figure to fellow POP fans!

Thanks for the shoutout on Shojo Ripple, and it's always nice to see Calne Ca. I got to looking around, and it had completely escaped me that Union Creative's ITEM #260969 quietly got a re-release last month.

Wario541 month ago#94537748Oh man the details on that Calne Ca are so freaky, in a good way. XD Union seems to do a pretty good job when it comes to unconventional designs like that one. Maybe they should stick to doing weird stuff lol. Also I love how you have the bright and adorable figures at the end of your blog, it’s like a palette cleanser haha. I’ve never even seen those girls before but they’re really cute!

I love Calne's character design so much! And yeah Union's more 'generic' figures don't stand out much, but when they do Deino or otherwise really wild designs I can forgive the subpar quality for the uniqueness of it all.

LOL I had not even thought about the order in which I would be showing these figures in the blog, but you are right!

LittlePisces1 month ago#94547127I like the 2000's look on the last figure. The cable she's holding makes me nostalgic for some reason. Probably because it reminds me of those RCA ones. Even the figure's colors scream old school! :)

I think the cable is either an RCA or audio jack! Although considering she is an older computer, I would have liked it a lot if it was a VGA, hehe!
