I got this figure together with my other stuff this September. As a die hard Kallen/Guren Nishiki fan, I knew I needed to get this figure. Warning! NSFW.
…and here’s the actual figure itself in all its glory.
As you can see, this figure is Kallen in a relatively casual pose, brushing her hair and just walking by. She is wearing a nice black top and bottom. Her top is indeed painted to look like she just went for a jog and forgot to wear something.
This figure was modeled to represent the outfit she was wearing in Episode 5 of Code Geass as seen below.
Anyway, the figure is a custom figure that is based off the RAHDX Gundam figures. I am not into Gundam as of yet, so I have no idea who the girl in white is.
The more observant among you would have also realised that the head was taken from another Kallen figure made by Bandai awhile back. However, I do have to admit that the facial expression suits the custom figure more than the Bandai one. The Bandai figure, a great figure in itself, has the head looking down in a very weird angle. The above picture was taken from way below the figure. Just for reference, the Guren is looking forward.
But I digress. Here are more pictures of the awesome custom:
And because I know you want it:
Lastly, the base of the figure has been modified by the maker as well.
As the base does have a Gundam logo on it, a thin layer of cork was placed on it. To me it kinda looks like pavement, so it’s all cool.
Something else I must mention is that this figure is a little lighter than normal PVC figures, so this could be a resin kit. Whatever the material, this figure is pretty well done for a custom and the paintjob is awesome. Very realistic.
This is my first custom figure and cost me 6000 yen. I must say that this purchase has made me more confident in buying custom figures.
