Recently had the chance to have some new photos of my Kotobukiya 1/8 Iris Chateaubriand taken that better show her shading and base. In case you're interested, here is her original gallery. She still occupies a prime space in my display case as she waits for my other Sakura Taisen kits to join her. Lots more photos after the jump!
One of my Garage Kit obsessions happens to be Sakura Taisen. I try to collect everything I can and one of the first originals I obtained was this tiny Iris figure from Kotobukiya. At just under 8 cm in height and not many parts, she was quite a challenge to paint.
As is pretty evident from my catalog of the garage kits, I'm a big Sakura Taisen fan. The series doesn't get much attention here in the US other than the one NIS America PS2/Wii game release that you totally should buy. They also released a lot of the anime here that is too cheap not to check out. So you can imagine when I saw this Nendoroid pop up for preorder, I squeaked and broke my finger hitting the buy button as quickly as possible.
