Although Max Factory pumps out a lot of figmas, they’re a bit lacking in the “giving them stuff to do” category. Individual figmas may come with certain character-specific accessories, but you rarely get accessories/play sets designed to go with any figma. That’s why I jumped on the figma PLUS sets, why I got excited for the figma horse, and why I ordered this figma-sized motorcycle. Dedicated hobbyists may opt to build their own play sets and accessories, but to be honest I’ve always been a “buy it from someone else” kind of guy 🙂
I’ve been doing some location scouting in my spare time as I’m always on the lookout for photogenic areas around Chicago. This shot happens to be at Fort Sheridan, once a Civil War-era fort that has been converted to houses (I’m guessing for very rich people). At the heart of it is this tower. The architecture and theme really fit Attack on Titan well, so I wanted to bring along my figma Mikasa and get some sort of AoT-esque shot. I think this is a site worth revisiting with some more AoT figmas.
It’s not quite summer officially but it’s sure starting to feel like it around here. So I figured it’s a good time to take a look at Max Factory’s 1/7 Mistral Nereis (Misty), one of the ladies designed by Tony Taka for Shining Hearts. There are a ton of Shining series figures and I’m usually not very interested in them. However Max Factory has a way of convincing me…
I’ve really been liking Max Factory’s releases as of late. As far as figure sculpts go they tend to be the most ambitious – or failing that the sexiest. Their latest scale figure release as of this writing is the Hatsune Miku Mikuzukin version by Grissry Panda. This became one of my favorite Miku designs as soon as I saw the prototype, and I’m happy to say that the final product lives up to my expectations.
Max Factory’s 1/6 Momo was an impulse buy for me, as she’s super cute and sexy. Wedding dress-based designs are nice enough, but take the dress off and hey… Anyway, Momo has been in my display cabinet for a while. It occurred to me that I never got around to reviewing the figure, so here we go.
If there’s one figure maker with a direct line into my wallet, I’d say it’s Max Factory. Every year, I buy a handful of random Max Factory figures – not because they’re always making characters that I love, but because they consistently wow me with amazing sculpts or luscious booty. Usually their figures have both, as was the case with this 1/7 Cerberus from Rage of Bahamut.
Since it’s autumn, my favorite season, I decided to go do an outdoors photo shoot. Unfortunately, what started out as a great day quickly turned into a gross and cloudy day. Not to worry! My subjects are never brought down by the weather, no matter how cloudy, windy, cold, and generally shitty.
