I too love Ke-ta's style, but there's a thing that left a sour taste in my mouth: when I met him at Reitaisai 14 last year, I bought his new book but he refused to sign it for me. All other authors were so kind to agree, except him and Ouma Tokiichi.
Nonetheless I got one of his wallscrolls some time ago (the Marisa one - Temps ennuye). My favorite one is the Komeiji sisters one, where they kiss through a cherry. Missed my chance once to get it on Mandarake, but it has always striked my fancy. Not really sure if I'd still like to get it, but... If I got it correctly, you have one to sell?
- maggie submitted a comment on [Article #39590] Prize figures look like THIS now?I think this increase in quality is largely due to the rise and increasing affordability of 3D modeling and 3D printing. It is much easier now to make these highly detailed and precise pieces than it was in the past. Of course a by-hand touch will always be needed for painting and some other elements. Whatever the reason, it is always great to get a lot of bang for your buck. :D
Totally agree with this. The second I saw it I knew it was digital. However, it looks that nice, I’ve seen prototype prize figures look that nice but the texture is lost a good amount after production. Maybe it’s not that way anymore but I’ve seen it happen before. It makes a nice, tight thing look unnecessarily detailed/sloppy when part of the texture is missing on the dress in certain places, the paint is crooked, there’s stains on it. Prize figures just don’t have the nicer molding and painting, parts seem to shift connection, etc. Also prize figures will cast in colored plastic which cheapens the look, compared to scale figures. Some of the Banpresto scultures seem amazing, then on release they don’t look as good because the pieces didn’t mold well and they don’t fit together well, have gaps, won’t stay on the stand, wasn’t glued properly, a scarf would be crooked in the wrong place, the list goes on.
The prototypes do often blow me away, but the finished product is really what you’re going to have to live with. Usually I wait for release to see how they turn out.
Also OP, please post a link to the figure, that would be helpful!

I've had bad experiences with them in the past but now I'm thinking of PO this one ITEM #670049
Gret to see some actual competition though
Toy collection should be a lower tier hobby and the fact that some of these companies think they can put out figures for 130+ for figures that are marginally better than figures that were 50-100 is absolute madness
- dollbyn submitted a comment on [Article #39590] Prize figures look like THIS now?Those details are beautiful! They really make the figure unique and add to its appeal. I honestly can't believe it's a prize figure.
I'm awful tempted to order her, but I primarily collect Mami, Charlotte, and Nagisa content when it comes to the Madoka series. Hopefully they at least continue the main quintet and I can get an equally lovely Mami ♥
