I saw some photos of her (as opposed to the prototype) and I was worried she was going to be fugly, but she actually turned out quite nice. My biggest complaint is that...if you look at her from views other than front/back and 3/4...her clothes totally make her look fat. But she is nice. Maybe not 7800 yen nice, but nice. Also the box was way plain.

You know what I think a neat figure would be, though? Luke at the end with the Key of Lorelei pressed down into the ground. The base could be Eldrant-style tiles and he could have his jacket tails flying out behind him. It'd be awesome. Also suddenly -- final form Van would look way cool with that pattern on his arm and the feathers. And Asch...maybe doing that sword-close-to-face pose from the OP sequence, or kinda like when he's casting artes... Yeah. Forget it. Onward!

(This figure is not a toy. Ages 15 & up. >:/ !!!)



Front view. Yes, her hair's a little darker than in the stock photos.


3/4. Bangs in face? Check. Melons? Double check. This figure is very fanservice-y... like her costume was trimmed extra up under her arms. So more cleavage shows... The plus side of this is you can kind of tell how her costume goes together (the leotard-thing underneath). Also some nice details with creases/wrinkles/folds in the material.


See? She totally gained 50 lbs right there.


The base. Her staff is also really nice.


You can't read her expression at all like this.

Behind her? All ToA doujinshi and the TOA Perfect Guide. :| Also some artbooks (Gundam Wing, Gentlemen's Alliance Cross, Disney), TMM production material, and my lone pair of TMM doujinshi, and then you can see Mew Zakuro and Cure White to one side, and Japanese-related books, PSP/games and a few Japanese CDs (that's the 'ToA Last Episode' showing). I'll take some shots of my room after I...dust.

Wow you weren't kidding, definitely some, err, fanservice-y additions there, haha. XD And her face actually turned out better than I thought...that was probably my only complaint when they first revealed this figure. I am SO gonna have to get this now ;_;

You know what I think a neat figure would be, though? Luke at the end with the Key of Lorelei pressed down into the ground. The base could be Eldrant-style tiles and he could have his jacket tails flying out behind him. It'd be awesome.

YES. THIS. I've been wanting an Endgame Luke 1/8 scale figure for SOO long, you don't even knoooowwww DDD:

Oh I just noticed the design on the base, heh. You're right, that does look better than a blank one. XD

And yeah, Yuri and Flynn are basically the first guys in the series to get a 1/8 scale figure, so that gives me some hope. ^^ Still though...I think they're pretty much done with Tales of the Abyss in terms of releasing merchandise and stuff for it, sadly...well, besides this new Tear figure obviously. I don't know though...I mean I feel like we won't have a chance to get anything else TotA related unless they do something else for the game (like make a port or remake). Not sure though. D:

That's a gorgeous figurine. I need to find some nice ones for myself...but alas, I have no cahs. And no idea where to find the TMM figurines that you have. (The Special Pretty Mew Ichigo is on eBay, but WAY too expensive. D:)

Hmmm....well, I was never sure how many different TMM figurines they had out there. Which ones are out there?

Aww, I always wanted the ones on the fruits. <33 They were so cute!!

Is the Sega set of pretty decent quality?

By the way, is that Tear icon you're using (for this entry) from some official artwork or anywhere? Just curious because it looks rather well-done and I don't think I ever saw it before.

Oh yeah the one you're using now :D

Ahh, nice! Did you do that in PhotoShop/ImageReady? I'd love to know how you did that :3 *is so not an expert at PS/IR ;_;*
