Good Smile Company is going to release Angel ( 天使 ) 1/8 PVC figure from the anime “Angel Beats!” ( エンジェルビーツ ), a joined project of Key, Aniplex, Dengeki G’s Magazine, and P.A. works. Will be released in
May June 2011. Around 190mm tall, 5,524 yen.
Just like Yurippe, this Angel figure by Good Smile Company is created entirely from 3DCG. They make the model with 3D program and port it out with 3D sculpting machine. Like I said before in the Yurippe post, I really don’t like this 3D-to-figure thingy.
The Yuri figure is ok, but this Angel isn’t doing really good IMO. As you may notice from her wings and arms, they look kinda unnatural. Maybe it is because they needed to make her based on the 3D skeleton, so it looks like they tried to make an action figure into a statue figure. I can tell that GSC did try to fixed her. If you compared the 3DCG above to the prototype below, you can tell that they fixed her legs and skirt already (Her legs in the 3DCG are horribly thin!!).
I know I complain a lot about these Yuri and Angel figure yet they’re still the best looking Yuri and Angel figure in the market. Beside, they’re just too cheap for me not to have them! =P
——Description from Manufacturer——
The mysterious girl who kept order in the school of the afterlife
From the anime Angle Beats! comes a 1/8th scale PVC figure of the angelic student council president, Tenshi.
She is posed with her hands clasped together in from of her and a peaceful smile brimming over her face, which creates a very warm and relaxed atmosphere about her. The angel wings from episode 11 ‘Change the World’ are also included as optional parts which can be attached to her back – you can recreate the beautiful scene where she descended from the sky.
Tenshi is a true angel!
