Today I have a figure that I preordered quite a while ago and it is finally here, Rinna Mayfield from Shining Resonance! If you have never heard of the series it wouldn’t be surprising, this is yet another game (WHERES PSO2 SEGA??) that SEGA has decided not to bring stateside, I guess they don’t like money? Anyway I knew nothing of this character other than she is a magic caster type and cute as hell, and that’s really all I needed to know lol. This is a 1/8 scale prepainted release by Kotobukia, the character design is done by Tony Taka.
This figure has some great color to it and I really like the design. Also my figure collection has been lacking in bootylicious women and Rinna has me covered in that department now =p Her pose really shows off her assets well and she has a cute penguin on her butt!
Also her little penguin friend attaches by magnet and her hat comes off too. The magnet on the penguin is a nice touch, it would have been a shame to have a peg going right into the top of her ass lol. The hat fits nicely unlike some figures with removable hats the hair grooves keep it in place nicely. The base also has a nice concrete paver texture to it, I always like to see care put into the base rather than a clear plastic disc. It just adds a little bit more to the feel of the figure.
Overall I love this figure it is well sculpted with an excellent paint job and an awesome pose. Compared to my recent figure purchases this was a bargain on preorder for around 8000 yen and I think as of this writing it is still in stock at Hobby Link Japan. My preorders this year are mostly leaning toward female wizard type of characters I am hoping to build a whole shelf of them soon. Lots of great stuff coming out this year and my preorder list is way too long… hopefully I can survive the coming convention season!
