When I held GSC’s 1/8 scale Makise Kurisu for the first time, I felt like I’m holding an Oscar. Not that I ever hold one before, but that thought really crossed my mind. Weird.
The noted figure manufacturer Good Smile Company first introduced this mighty gorgeous scale figure of Makise Kurisu in Summer Wonfes 2011 and I immediately fell in love with it. Well, it was unpainted when I first saw it but gosh, I love that pose! It was the most beautiful (unpainted) figure I ever saw. And I was dying to have one. Now here it is in my possession. I’m so happy.
The best thing about this figure is undeniably the dynamic pose. It looks as if there’s wind blowing through Kurisu’s hair and jacket. Maybe she’s soaring or maybe she’s falling. Either way, it’s absolutely stunning.
Let’s see more pictures of this beautiful figure, shall we?
Her famous red cellphone.
It’s as if there’s movement.
That famous red tie.
I was happy and satisfied with the entire figure and props until I get to the staircase. That plastic staircase felt cheap and it’s hollow. It would’ve been better if it’s made of something more solid. The staircase as a stand is actually a great idea since it enhances the dynamic feel of this figure. Too bad it’s not to my fancy.
I guess that’s about it. The bits and pieces of this figure, which is the most expensive purchase to date. I can’t remember the exact amount I paid for because I pre-ordered this like months ago and my memory is all fuzzy. Yes, I’m an old lady.
