1/8 Chidori Kaname

Name: 1/8 Chidori Kaname Swimsuit Version
Anime: Full Metal Panic Fumoffu?
Sculpted by: Touji Tanaka
Company: Good Smile Company
Released: 05/06/05
Price: 4200 Yen
Added to collection: 14/02/06

This is a lovely figure- Kaname in her white bikinis just like the episode in Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu? where they all went to the beach (minus the RPG launcher of course!). The shading on her 2-piece is done with light blue to give some depth. The paint job is flawless. The body is assembled from 5 parts: legs x 2, lower body, upper body+head+left arm, and right forearm. All the joints are pretty invisible except the forearm joint which is quite obvious from the side view. The mould lines are pretty invisible
She stands very steadily on her stand. A little shading on her removable RPG launcher gave it a realistic effect.
There's also a figure of Tessa in her school swimsuit released in the same set but I'm not interested since I'm a fan of Chidori!

I think that the bikini shoot is very attracting in the anime cartoon version. The figures are way maore sexier.

since when would Souske give her an Anti-tank rocket? more than that, why would she want to hold it? O.o

I have this figurine too,but one thing bad about the bases is that it cracks easily.When i placed chidori on the base,I accidentally applied a little too much pressure,and there is now a crack mark there.... damn
