Dungeon Travelers is an RPG spin off of To Heart 2. The girls all acquire special powers in this game. Tamaki has been a samurai, and now she is a fighter, both roles stems from her proactive personality. Her figure is painted with a palette of reds. The dark crimson of her hair set off the brightness of the leotard she wears beneath her protective gear. Her figure maker at Griffon painted a metallic sheen over her armour and boots so that she sparkles. But never forget that Tamaki is a playful girl, her shield features the face of a funny character.

From Griffon's amazing pre-painted PVC Statue line comes this highly detailed figure of Tamaki Kousaka in fantasy RPG designed! The statue is made of PVC and measures approximately 25 cm in height (scale 1/7) and she really stands and poses like how she was illustrated.

Tamaki's dungeon travelers plate mail armour and boots have a hard texture to them, in addition to a darker red and metallic trim. With her sword/Claymore in one hand and a shield (looking a bit like Iron Man face) in the other she has both a menacing and seductive look. Her initial skill being Raging Smash and she deals higher damage to enemies with a higher level than the user. Stands on a round base with metal tag label.

RGM-79C GM Type-C Wagtail 1/144 Scale Built & Paint (Grey)

It really took me far too long to blog about this and I do apologize for it especially to Kenny who has done such an amazing job to this Gunpla. You have my sincere thanx for this gem of craftsmanship! I love colour separations, the fine antenna and the reflective visor! Kenny actually did both the 2 colour versions featured on Dengeki Hobby (May 2011 cover). I got the grey and the master has the original piece! Personally, I feel that the more general purpose red and grey version colour scheme gives a camouflage feel of realism and practicality. Another convincing reason is that a 'wagtail' is a kind of bird and its based on the grey wagtail.

The RGM-79C GM Type C "Wagtail" (aka GM Type C, "Wagtail") is a custom general purpose mobile suit, it is an improved version of the RGM-79C GM Type C (Keraunos Squad). It first appeared in AOZ - Advance of Zeta: The Traitor to Destiny. It is a custom mobile weapon used by an anti-Titans organization Keraunos and piloted by Van Asiliaino. The "Wagtail" is a further upgrade of the Keraunos GM Kai, made with parts provided by a mysterious sponsor, which are apparently left over from rejected next-generation machines developed for the Federation Forces. Credits: Gundam Wiki

Kudos that Dengeki Hobby (May 2011 cover) included the conversion parts as part of the appendix which works wonder on HGUC RGM-79C GM Type-C. GM Type C "Wagtail" parts include the head parts, shoulder parts, arm parts, waist armor, lower leg parts, backpack, beam Rifle and shield. The lines straight and crisp, the surface finish is excellent and the best part is that the fit with the Bandai parts is absolutely spot on! 

Beam Saber handles are not detachable from the shoulder parts and shield. The HGUC GM Type C is a decent kit itself, and it’s great that the conversion kit uses it as a base. It completely gives it a facelift like using Gundam Hazel configurations and technologies for a more modern frame than the old RGM-79. There is a Hazel Rifle similarities to its main weapon, which would explain the double e-caps on the left shield.

Dragon Ball DBZ Tien Shinhan DXF Figure Chozousyu Volume 6

From the popular series Dragonball Z comes DXF figure of Tien Shinhan in 6" (15cm) DXF figure of Chozousyu Volume 5. The CHOZOUSYU series of Dragon Ball Z figures is directed by Hiroyuki Nakazawa who has made over a hundred Dragon Ball figures in his 15 years of designing.

This series features high-detailed, collectable figurines meticulously sculpted with uniform series scale Officially licensed by Banpresto in 2016 as the DXF figures could only be found in Japan's UFO Catcher games, and are difficult to get the exact figure you want. Personally, I find the package very unique in comic cover which get me in a nostalgic setting.

Tien Shinhan is the only character in Dragon Ball who belongs to the Three-Eyed Clan. With his distinctive third eye he can copy attacks of other fighters and he is better in seeing quick movements. He also seems to be able to see dark energies, such as those around Piccolo. Tien Shinhan has been a disciple of Master Shen who is a rival of Master Roshi, so at first he is Son Goku's adversary. They become good friends later. 

Banpresto publishes Tien Shinhan in the Dragon Ball Z Structure Collection (Chouzoushu) and shows him in a quite calm, but combat-ready posture. He wears his asymmetrical green fighting clothes which allow a look at the scar Mercenary Tao gave him. Here's your chance to get another member of the Z Fighters for your collection. PVC Figure Banpresto Japan. Like others in this line, well modelating well painting and nice at all!

Premium EVA Series EVA Unit Mark-06 (SEGA) Figure

Unit 01 vs Unit 06 - A sneak preview of my resin Unit 01 statue

Evangelion EVA Unit Mark-06 is one of the new Evangelion units to be introduced in the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy till Evangelion: 3.0 You can (not) Redo. The final armored Mark.06 is a deep blue with yellow trim. The horned helmet, which bears a strong resemblance to Unit-01's, has a red visor covering the eye holes. Credits : FANDOM powered by Wikia 

I didn't really pay much attention to this mecha, not even after watching the anime. At least not until I managed to gacha Kaworu, its pilot on the mobile game Line Rangers during the Evangelion Event.   Kaworu is able to summon EVA Unit Mark-06 during the game play which make the mecha extra meaningful. Kaworu is doubtlessly the most popular male character in the Evangelion universe. His image is that of a chilling dark angel. The Evangelion mecha he pilots fits this image perfectly.

This mecha takes on a navel blue as the primary colour with a bit of yellow.  The sleek body lines kind of reflects Kaworu's own appearance, and the Halo that hung above his head hints at the character's origins. The Evangelion unit Mark-06 is on the move!

Some simple assembly (by attaching the lower legs and the angel halo) of this game-prize item from Sega is required. This PVC figure is part of a limited SEGA EVA unit series. It stands approximately 10" (27cm) tall. It's a Sega Prize 2011 from crane games in Japan. Too bad the figure isn't detailed enough, having those fine markings being overlooked. I personally like the unicorn on the head (similarly to Unit 01) and the red visor.
